Because there is a housing shortage in Maui, to make your vacation plans a lot easier reserve your vacation rental before you book your flight; air tickets are much easier to find than places to stay.
If this property is booked for the nights you are looking for, please try my other 2 listings:
ABOUT THE PROPERTY AND STUDIO
Our private and clean 600sf studio nests in our quiet, peaceful land named Mana Aina that means the power of the earth in Hawaiian language. Mana Aina sits on a privileged spot in beautiful Haiku, enjoying the purest oxygen that comes from Hana wrapping around the national tropical forest that sits on the side of the Haleakala [dormant volcano]. The views from the studio go into & beyond our 12 acre matured park.
Our studio is clean & well taken care of so you may enjoy a wonderful stay. The rental is made of bricks and painted stucco walls, tile floors, and high beam ceilings. As soon as you open the sliding doors, you are standing on a 12 acre park covered by a lush landscape with ornamental trees, tropical plants, seasonal fruit trees & flowers.
To tell you a bit more about the property, on the ocean side of Mana Aina there is a 50 acre forest. On the East side we have a big gulch with a seasonal water stream coming down from the Haleakala's rain forest which goes all the way down into the ocean where Jaws located [one of largest surfing/windsurfing waves in the world]. On the Haleakala side we have another 50 acre property as quiet as ours. On the West Maui Mountains side we have East Kuiaha Road which is a very quiet road.
ABOUT THE BUILDING
We rent 3 studios, together or separately. The studios are in 1 dwelling and are separated from each other by a 10 feet wide hallway and do not share any walls [they are 10 feet apart]. The walls on each side of the hallways are made of thick large bricks filled in with concrete and iron bars; these are not wood buildings. That's TWO 12 inch noise proof walls to enhance privacy and noise control. Also, the hallways have their own roof keeping the spaces [with their own roof], apart from each other. Although it is a building with 3 studios connected by 2 hallways, they feel very private and each is positioned at different angle to enhance privacy. Each unit has their own entrance.
The main bed is a queen size bed [medium softness] and there is also a sofa/futon that may be turned into a full size bed [futon on the harder side].
An additional twin size bed [medium softness] may be added if available.

There is a parking area where you may park up to 2 cars, but if you have a 3rd car please let us know and we'll let you know where you may park it.
Although our property is very secluded and quiet, just 6 minutes away you will find some nice restaurants and shopping for groceries as well. If you enjoy organic and healthy foods, Mana Foods (our local grocery store in Paia) is just a short 10 minutes drive from here as well as the beach and a number of activities/adventures. The closest place where you may enjoy a yummy casual breakfast or lunch is at the Pauwela Cannery, a surfers' and windsurfers' favorite. The Haiku Cannery does have more eating out options than the Pauwela Cannery, but it is 3 minutes further away. At the Haiku Cannery I very much enjoy the sushi at Nuka and the amazing burgers, pizza, pasta, salads and cold beer at Colleen's Restaurant. Around the corner from Nuka there is Maui Kombucha Bar, don't miss it! There is also Veg Out for vegetarians across from Nuka. By the way, all these places are right next to the Haiku Post Office. There are also some more restaurants in this area and many good options to explore, but before I'm finished, I want to mention the Taco Truck and Tai wagon restaurant!
If you are staying with us during wave season, you may want to visit Jaws to see tow surfing and windsurfing pushed to the extremes on some of the biggest rideable waves on the planet. Just drive straight down from our place towards the ocean, but make sure you are on a 4 wheel drive vehicle, especially if muddy conditions!
If you enjoy hiking through amazing and unique places, you might want to visit the Makawao Forest; just a beautiful 20 min drive from here. Also, if you are feeling adventurous, on the way to the Makawao forest a fun place to go is the Piiholo Ranch Zip Line. On the way down from the forest you may want to stop at Makawao Town to check out some locally owned stores or for a bite to eat. By the way, I love the sandwiches at Casanovas in Makawao. There are some small art galleries there too if you happen enjoy painters who portray Maui's landscapes.
Downhill from Makawao is Paia, a cool place patched with boutiques, restaurants and my favorite health food store Mana Foods. I would highly encourage shopping for groceries at Mana Foods, once you go there you'll see what I mean. The beach is also right in front of Paia and if you are up to a long walk on the beach, start right there and walk or swim towards Kahului; pass the rocks and coves and keep walking... also great for a jog or run.
If you want to check out some great streams and pools, Iao Valley is your spot hands down. This area is also known for it's amazing hikes. It is above Old Wailuku. This is a personal favorite and place where I like to take friends while they are visiting Maui.
There are so many great things to do and nearby places to visit from our property, like the Haleakala [volcano], Poli Poli, Kula, Twin Falls, including some secret spots like Commando Hike, I could go on and on. With that said, we hope you will get to enjoy staying at our property as we look forward to meeting you and talking about some of the beautiful places to explore and visit on Maui.
