Haiku Cottage Rental Photos and Description

New on the Market! King Bed; Sleeps 2

Summary

This new Hawaiian studio cottage is perched atop a scenic jungle gorge with breathtaking ocean and valley views in every direction. Open and breezy; attention to detail shines from every facet. If you’re looking for a unique and authentic Maui vacation, Maliko Coffee Cottage or Maliko Retreat should be among your top contenders.

The Coffee Cottage is a new, Asian style studio cottage with modern tiled shower, king bed, sectional sofabed with chaise, three bar stools with custom Koa Counter and Koi pond and fountain. (Other amenities can be found above.) Note: While it can sleep four, it is optimal for couples; the sofabed and king bed are in the same room.

Details

Attention to detail permeates every aspect of these homes. From the remarkable personal attention the owners give each and every guest, to the structural craftsmanship, furnishings and guest amenities, Maliko Coffee Cottage and Maliko Retreat are clearly a labor of love for owners Sydney and Maurice Smith.

Being located on acres of undeveloped land, and adjacent to an even larger parcel of undeveloped forest, the home and property are incredibly peaceful and quiet. Unlike Maliko Retreat, the Coffee Cottage is close to the winding country road, so you can hear cars (this is not a highway!) You’re certainly going to hear plenty of songbirds, wind, and passing showers as they patter on the rainforest canopy below.

Birders will especially appreciate the perspective, and the variety and quantity of birds that can be seen from the canopy vantage point. Pueo (native owls), n?n? (Hawaiian geese), plovers, stilts, majiros, hwamei, egrets, Java sparrow, Japanese white eye, doves and mynah are just a few of the many species of birds that call this area home. A large flock of egrets migrates twice daily past the cottage.

The Owners

Sydney and Maurice are exceptional hosts. They treat every guest as if they were family, welcoming all personally and freely offering unbridled hospitality and Aloha alongside their extensive knowledge of the area. Most requests that you might have they will graciously accommodate – they even offer to stock the kitchen before your arrival with your list of groceries for just the cost of the grocery store receipt! (I suggest letting them pick some unique local fruits, veggies and fish that you might not otherwise encounter.)

The significant value added from owners this passionate about the paradise they lovingly steward can’t be overstated. Sydney and Maurice deliver a depth of genuine Maui experience that you’re guaranteed to count high among your cherished Maui vacation memories.

The Grounds

Being in a steep river-cut valley has protected the land immediately boarding Maliko stream from becoming plantation monoculture for pineapple, sugar cane or grazing cattle. Instead you will be treated to an enchantingly diverse jungle forest. Wild blooming tropical flowers, vines, palms, gingers, jungle plants and fruits. Guests are encouraged to pick fruit and flowers (and you will be welcomed with a basket of freshly picked fruit at checkin as well!)

There are also small picnic areas, a stream with waterfalls and private natural pools so enticing, that even the most bashful will comfortably let go of their worldly cares to indulge in a skinny dip. Ancient Hawaiians used this valley, too – and there are even ancient lo'i and pictographs that the owners can bring you to view. The grounds are truly an untouched slice of natural Maui rainforest.

The property is also home to the Maliko Estate Coffee farm – but you won’t find any clear-cut fields or mechanized rows of coffee farming – the hand-picked coffee grows in harmony with the jungle surroundings. Maliko Estate Coffee is shade-grown below the undisturbed lush jungle canopy. You can take a tour of the farm – or simply enjoy the half pound of natural farm-fresh coffee included with your stay!

Activities

The owners offer guests many informative activities and tours. Impromptu shorter tours are often freely given, while more comprehensive tours and activities are charged for. Fees are modest considering they are private and high quality – they also get rave reviews from past visitors. Tours offered include a Maliko Estate Coffee tour (you’ll take home a pound of fresh coffee), a basket weaving excursion, wild tea gathering and brewing, and “salad dressings from the jungle” tour where you gather edible leaves fruits and flowers to top your salads with.

Three Night Stay 2015

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here last year and it was one of our first experiences with VRBO. We had no idea how this cottage was going to spoil us. Attention to detail, attentiveness, friendliness, immaculate, warm, homey....the list goes on and on. The owner takes so much pride in her property and the satisfaction of her guests and that shows on every level.

Secluded cottage in the hills

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a great time during our 2 night stay; our only regret was that we didn't stay longer. The cottage has everything you need from a cooler, boogie boards and beach chairs to extra sunscreen and bug spray. The cottage was clean, comfortable and had a great view. We also greatly enjoyed our tour of the property and our private swim in the nearby waterfall. Sydney was so helpful! We would definitely come back. We liked that the cottage was only a short drive to Paia, beaches and a supermarket.

A perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed and maintained, the cottage has all the amenities of home and much more. The views from the lanai, kitchen, living area, and bathroom are lovely, and there are plenty of comfortable places to sit and relax, both indoors and out. Everything seems new or at least in like-new condition; the furnishings and decor are tasteful and fun. The kitchen is perfect--but, then again, so is the rest of the cottage! I loved the bathroom, with the good washer and dryer. The house is very well stocked with things like laundry detergent, garbage bags, picnic supplies, beach accessories, etc. Although there is a road right nearby, we found that the traffic noise never bothered us. The cottage is situated by itself and surrounded by trees, so the privacy is great. Location up in the hills, away from the crowds, can't be beat. I wish we could have stayed longer than four days.

Cute, private cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved staying here, we wished we could have stayed longer than two nights! Sydney was lovely and let us come drop our bags off before check in as we flew in early! Situated in the mountains of Makawao, off a quiet road it gives you total privacy. The cottage was beautiful and well decorated. It had everything you would need from coffee to shampoo. It also has beach views from the kitchen window! Plenty big enough for four people, I would definitely recommend staying here on your next trip to Maui!

Grateful for this beautiful hideaway in the upcountry tree canopy

  • 5 of 5

We're almost afraid to tell people how wonderful this stay was, wanting to keep it as our secret place now that we have experienced it. The welcome, from every email, telephone conversation, and when we met Sydney was positive and gave us the complete antidote to the fears we might have had that Maui was too developed to enjoy. What we had instead was a beautifully realized cottage with a full kitchen, lots of space and designed with so many beautiful details thst we were truly reluctant to leave at the end of our stay. We had complete privacy and comfort, even though we were near the road, and felt like we were in our own treehouse. The tour of the property with Sydney was amazing, and we hope to return for a much longer stay. This location is perfectly situated for visits to Haleakala, Hana, and anywhere else on the island. We loved spending time locally, and if you don't want to cook, there are many great restaurants nearby at every pricepoint. The coffee was a bonus - and we liked it so much we bought more to bring home, which we have enjoyed, thinking of our stay all over again. We had great tips and suggestions and appreciated the local knowledge as well as the opportunity to learn more about the history and community. This is a very special place.

Perfectly placed romantic cottage

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about the Coffee Cottage in Makawao. Sydney was an incredible host, the tour of her property was a highlight of our entire stay in Maui. Close enough to the wonderful towns of Pa'ia and Makewao, but far enough away to feel like you are tucked away from it all. We can't wait to return and stay for longer than 4 days!
