A sleepy spot on Maui's north shore, Haiku serves up a taste of island life at its most endearing. Located near vibrant Paia and even closer to the white-sand Ho'okipa Beach Park, this hippie hangout is perfect for those who don't mind taking a detour from the beaten path. Whether you're planning to stay a while or are enjoying a little downtime as you tour the island, you'll find Haiku vacation rentals are just the place to enjoy some R&R with family and friends. Relaxed dining, friendly locals and superb surf conditions are all part of the deal.

Things to do

Popular hangouts near Haiku

The chance to take life at your own pace reigns heavy on a trip to Maui. You might wander through the Garden of Eden Arboretum, a lush 26-acre spot with botanical gardens, waterfalls and mesmerizing views, or head to the Hali'imaile Distillery in nearby Makawao for a taste of Hawaiian-inspired vodka, whiskey and rum. If it's a family trip, you might want to skip the hard stuff and head straight to the fun stuff. Find it at the Maui Ocean Center, a 5-acre aquarium with a shark tank and tide pool, and at the array of ziplining adventures found all over the island.


Enjoy the great outdoors in Haiku

Outdoor time is firmly on the agenda here, with many travelers eager to discover the delights of the surrounding landscape. Twin Falls, just a 15-minute drive from many Haiku vacation rentals features on most island bucket lists, thanks in part to the chance to swim below the falls but also because of the popular farm stand at the entrance doling out fresh cane juice and artisan coconut candy. From there, a trip to the Ho'okipa Lookout offers a chance to get a glimpse of some of the world's best windsurfers and kiteboarders making the most of the often-windy conditions.


Haiku is a 4-season destination

Haiku boasts year-round appeal but tends to be a little busier over the winter and summer seasons, the latter serving up the calmest waters for young beach bums. Winter breaks are ideal for those who want to catch the biggest waves or head out on a whale-watching trip, although if getting a great deal on your Haiku vacation rental is a top priority, it's well worth checking out what's available during April, May and September through November. These shoulder seasons in the spring and fall are often found to offer the best deals on rentals as well as flights and restaurants.

Natural features

Explore the Road to Hana from Haiku

As landscapes go, things don't get much prettier than Maui. Many visitors find the best way to experience the island's natural beauty is to take a trip along the famed Road to Hana. This 65-mile stretch kicks off in Kahului to the west of Haiku and runs all the way to Hana on the island's east shore. Highlights on the route include the forested Kaumahina State Wayside Park, Hanawai Falls and the picturesque Hamoa Beach. Be sure to stop for a taste of the freshly baked banana bread served up at pop-up stalls along the highway.
