A North Shore Retreat.
This new, one-bedroom, 700-square-foot cottage has partial ocean and mountain views. Private, four-person jacuzzi and barbecue area. Private, fenced backyard. Open beam ceilings. Tile and wood floors.
Five minutes to Hookipa Beach, just off Hana Highway. Thirty minutes from Kahului Airport.
This was a pleasant place to stay if you choose to be in the Ha'iku/Makawao/Pa'ia area. I think it's best for two adults, but with the downstairs futon, one additional adult or several children could work. The kitchen and bathroom are well-quipped, which I consider to be generous on the part of the owner.
The place was clean and very pleasant, in a nondescript neighborhood. Be mindful that the bedroom is upstairs and the one bathroom is downstairs, which may be an issue for older adults.
I think that the little private courtyard could have been cleaned up with shrubs cut back to make it a more pleasant use. We were disappointed that there was no BBQ that we could use. There was a dilapidated grill that was hard to access and may not even have been functional.
Devi was most pleasant and a genuinely caring owner who wanted to make sure our stay on her property was a good one. And it was. I think that the rental amount makes it a good value. I would stay there again if that area of Maui were our destination.
I would like to thank the owner so such a pleasant week long stay on our honeymoon. Absolutely beautiful and perfect when we arrived. We have no complaints. Loved it so much we are planning on moving to Maui in a few years. Thank you so much and god bless.
The cottage is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood with lots of privacy, including private yard with hot tub. We love the north side of the island for its character and kite surfing. The cottage is close to Haiku, Piai, and Makawao for some fun dining options and great local grocery stores. 15 minutes to the east you can hike Twin Falls or if Jaws is going off it is just down the road. A great find and wonderfully relaxing vacation spot.
We stayed in the cottage for a week and we felt like we were at home. The owner was great and made sure we had everything we needed. We went there for my birthday and she knew how important it was to me to have the best vacation ever. She did not forget about this and gave me flowers! That made me happy and I will not forget that.
The posted pictures are not misleading - it was exactly the same, in my opinion even better since in the pictures you cannot really see all the plants surrounding the house which are beautiful. Inside was very clean and well maintained.
We strongly recommend this property (actually we are already thinking of going back there next year)!
