Overview

Haiku Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 1 bath plus outdoor shower

Permit: BBPH2011-0001, GET/TAT: W00066882-01.

Romantic, unique, charming coral rock cottage perched on the edge of Maliko Gulch. Swing in the hammock, or play tennis on the clay court. This is a property for nature lovers, romantics, and anybody looking for a quiet escape from reality. Wake up surrounded by plants and trees, and an endless blue sky. With lodging like this, why would anybody consider staying in a condo with thousands of other tourists?

The Iolani Guest cottage is fabulous for a Maui Honeymoon, quiet escape, or anybody that would enjoy a quiet Maui vacation rental cottage.

The property occupies a large two acre parcel of land, in the lowest section of Haiku (out of the rain band) and just a couple of minutes from Hookipa Beach. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with hundreds of trees and plants. A clay tennis court is available for guest use.

The GUEST COTTAGE sits to the side of the property, with its own garden and lawn. It has a wonderful, tropical garden view, and looks into the edge of the gulch. The cottage has coral rock exterior walls and a patio with teak outdoor dining furniture, gas grill and sun loungers. The interior has a custom kitchen (granite counters, top quality appliances including a sub-zero fridge), living area which opens to the deck, two bedrooms (king, king), and a custom, tiled bathroom. Other amenities include telephone with answering machine, TV, DVD, stereo, laundry, high speed wireless internet. This is the perfect cottage for guests wanting a reasonable price, but an upscale interior. One of the best features - a unique, coral rock outdoor shower, fabulous to rinse off when you come home from the beach covered in sand.

Note: owner main house and a garage building are on the same property. Each has their own private area.

• Living room - comfy sofa

• Dining room - for 4 indoors, for 4 outdoors on the patio

• Kitchen - Sub-zero fridge, gas range, dishwasher, disposal

• Bedroom #1 - king bed, sliding doors to outdoors

• Bedroom #2 - king bed, sliding doors to deck

• Bath #1 - custom tiled, tub/shower combo

About Cathy or Melody

We bought this property in 1999, and built the cottage in 2001. It's exactly what we wanted it to be! We have a young daughter, and the property is a perfect location to raise her. She's become quite the outdoors girl!

Cathy or Melody purchased this cottage in 2001

Why Cathy or Melody chose Maui

We LOVE Haiku. Our property is only a few minutes down to Hookipa Beach or into Paia town. It's just far enough to feel private and secluded, but still close enough to be there in just a few minutes. We love nature, and this property delivers. It's a little slice of paradise.

What makes this cottage unique

Only one mile to the center of 'Haiku town', and only ten minutes in the opposite direction to Paia town.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

As a repeat visitor to Maui, and a vacation rental owner myself, I can say that this property is an excellent choice. Not only is the house itself absolutely lovely, well built with only the best appliances, flooring, furniture, and fixtures, but obviously the property management company does a flawless job in guest communication, keeping the unit well-kept, very clean, and simply beautiful. It was wonderful to stay where the money spent was so well worth it -- that the product offered was nothing less than perfect, actually exceeding our expectations.

Everything was excellent!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say, we were a little apprehensive about this vacation. Not only was it our first time in Maui, but it was our first vacation in over 13 years. It took us that long to save up for such a trip.

Sure the photos were nice, but they could have been old or doctored ect.

I have to say, everything was excellent! Two minor issues (that I've already sent in an email about) and that was it. Everything else was great.

I spoke to your grounds keeper and he was very friendly and informative too!

I have to say that the golden limes (at least I think that's what they were called) in the orchard, made for an excellent marinade for chicken!

My daughter misses her friends the Geckos (she loves all kinds of reptiles and went on a nightly "hunt" for them with her flashlight.)

All in all, we loved it!

If we can ever afford it again, I promise you, that is where we will stay!

Mahalo and Aloha to you all. We miss the island already.

Fantastic time

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at the Iolani Cottage. It is very comfortable, peaceful and has everything needed. The grounds are lovely and we really enjoyed the sunsets from the porch and the tennis court. The kitchen is great and really everything is quite nice.

It was our first time staying on north shore / up country and we definitely loved staying there. It was more than we even expected.. The rural feel and beautiful tropical country side were really remarkable to us.

SPECIAL TRIP!

  • 5 of 5

"We came to Haiku on a special trip in order for my husband to get specialized therapy for an injury he sustained two years ago in Wailea. The tranquil, peaceful, and beautiful surroundings of the Iolani cottage helped our family heal in so many ways. We enjoyed the sounds and sights of all the beautiful birds and geckos, and the foliage that adorns the property is truly magnificent. If you want a truly unforgettable, unique, Maui experience this is the place to stay. The cottage itself is updated, clean and inviting. We took the opportunity to utilize the board games that were available for our use. The hammock and outdoor shower were great features that we took advantage of. I don't have anything negative to say except if you decide to enjoy the outdoors at night, make sure to wear bug spray! We can't wait to come back next year!"

Truly great place!

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed staying at the Iolani cottage. Probably the best vacation rental we have ever rented. Staying at Iolani helped us decide to move to Maui.

Everything was perfect and of high quality. Much appreciated.
