Wonderful boutique cottage
Beautiful space. Cozy and peaceful. Amenities were perfect. Beautiful garden. Host was kind and welcoming. Thank you for the wonderful Hawaii experience! Mahalo
I only gave this cottage 5 stars because there were no more stars to give! This lovely cottage was a 10 for me and my 17 yo son's vacation. The outside shower was awesome, the size of the cottage and the well equipped kitchen was perfect! The location was great, after a day out and about either the Hana drive or a day in the sun, it was sooo nice to come back to the shower and a quiet evening. We enjoyed listening to the birds even the early morning chickens!! The restaurants near by were excellent. Ally was alway right on any questions or suggestions, she was more then will to help with anything to make our visit the most enjoyable vacation ever. I would highly recommend Ally and her properties. We would, no doubt, stay there again, if we were able to! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Mahalo Nina! We really enjoyed hosting you and greatly appreciate your time in sharing this review. Hope to have you back on Maui soon! Aloha :)
Bright, clean and comfortable
This cottage is completely as advertised. It is exceptionally clean, bright and private. It is very well stocked with everything required for cooking at home. Lots of windows make the cottage bright and airy, and they provide a cross breeze for ventilation. The bed is extremely comfortable! The cottage is located right in Haiku, within easy walking distance of grocery stores and restaurants. It has a wonderful outdoor shower, perfect for after-beach days. The filtered drinking water is delicious and safe. We found the ice maker a real plus. Also available are beach chairs, umbrellas and coolers. The unit's washer and dryer are easy to use. Lots of channels are available on the tv. There is plenty of storage space for clothes, suitcases, etc. Also several power bars for charging phones and camera batteries. We loved waking up to the symphony of birds every morning. The yard is well cared for, with lots of flowers and plants, as well as a grassy area. The entire cottage has been put together with attention to detail and with the occupant in mind. The owner is very approachable and responds quickly to any requests or questions. We stayed here for 28 days, and felt totally like we were coming home after each day's adventures. Thanks so much, Ally!
Loved our little Haiku cottage!
If you're looking for a well-equipped, clean, private cottage to relax and get away from the crowds, this is it! The cottage is set in a well kept yard and bordered by tropical plants. The kitchen has everything needed for cooking and cleaning up. The fridge is full size! The cottage turned out to be bigger than expected. Lots of room for two! The bed is comfy as can be. We were a little chilly on the first couple nights and Ally was very quick to provide us with a couple of extra blankets. Once we discovered the outdoor shower, there was no going back! It's very private and there's nothing to compare to coming home after a hot beach or travel day and stepping into the warm shower with a gentle breeze refreshing parched skin.
The climate on that part of the island is just right. Mornings were freshly washed with the night's light rain and the sun never failed to join us as we left for on our daily adventures. The location is perfect in a small community and is a quick walk to a well-stocked grocery store and restaurants. Want to surf? The surf beaches are just a short drive away. We're not big on night life, but Paia is not far away and offers lots of shopping, restaurants and after hours fun. The tourist hubs of the south side are close enough to drive to every day for all kinds of beach and water fun.
Ally is an excellent, friendly host and we highly recommend this cottage and will definitely book next time we come back to Maui!
Mahalo Laurie! It was wonderful to host you and meet you both! Would love to have you visit again, Happy Holidays!
Loved the location in Haiku. Live like a local upcountry and walk to amenities
Cute little cottage that was nicely decorated & immaculately clean . Very basic, but exactly what we were looking for price-wise as we were out and about all day & kite surfing. 1 min walk to breakfast (Colleen’s), grocery store and sushi for dinner (Nuka)! Enjoyed staying on the tropical North Shore with closer access to Kanaha Kite Beach much more than of staying in Kihei and Wailea which is very urban, dry and hot.
Upcountry is slightly cooler at night, often with light rain (November visit) so we didn’t miss having AC. Lovely outdoor shower was a nice surprise, and lush landscaping. I have given only 4 stars because the neighborhood rooster woke me up every morning (which is charming at 8am but not at 5am). Would definitely stay again.
The place was very clean and fully equipped. My wife and I loved the outside shower. The place is a walking distance from grocery stores and food trucks. All in all, our experience was great! I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to visit Maui.
