About Steven & Ivy Nickens
My Name is Steven Nickens and Maui has been my home for over 43 years, my real job is selling real estate, surfing and windsurfing in my spare time . Ivy my lovely wife is an artist, born and raised on Maui. Together we raised four kids, and have three granddaughters with another on the way. 1990 we bought and developed this property with the help of our kids. We love working in the yard, so we planted all our favorite fruit, and ornamental trees. I love that I can jump in the surf at Hookipa for a morning surf session before my day begins. Twelve years ago we built the cottage, we are just now putting the finishing touches on Pineapple Cottage remodel job. On this 2.5 acre parcel, we planted citrus, avocado's, papaya's, bananas, mango's and all kinds of tropical plants. If you're lucky and my garden is not full of weeds, you might enjoy some organic veggies from the garden. We love living here, it's so peaceful and private. In the morning you hear the birds singing. Anyway this is our home and we love living here, and hope you will to. Duke, our dog patrols our yard, looking mainly for someone to play ball with.
Why Steven & Ivy Nickens chose Haiku-Pauwela
Having lived in Haiku for years, we had an opportunity to purchase this property in 1990. We loved the location for perfect weather in Haiku, close to Haiku town, and easy access to restaurants, shopping and close to Hookipa Beach Park. Pineapple Cottage is the perfect location for a Hawaiian getaway. What I really like is driving pass the hustle and bustle in Paia, driving pass Mana's Fishouse, and I love the drive pass Hookipa Beach Park. Driving up Haiku road, is a beautiful drive heading up to our property. When you arrive at the Pineapple Cottage you drive into a private flag lot road, unto our exquisite estate. It really has the feel of old Hawaii, kick back and enjoin your visit.
What makes this Cottage unique
What people say about our home, is that it feels like an tropical estate, with so many beautiful trees, and that you can walk on the property and pick fresh fruit. I also like listening to the stream when it's raining. Haiku is very tropical, we do get rain, but the temperature is not to hot, not to cold. You also are surrounded by vegetation creating beauty and privacy. House Rules- Quiet after 9 pm, No smoking but on the deck it is allowed, No pets, Please remove slippers, not a party house very quiet neighborhood. Check in time 2pm, Check out 10 am.

Perfect island hideaway with amazing views!
Pineapple cottage exceeded my expectations by a mile! It is gorgeous, immaculately clean, newly remodeled, and has a huge lanai with views that will take your breath away. I loved being away from the touristy part of the island and felt like I was getting a truly unique experience staying in Haiku. My sister and I swam daily at Baby Beach, which is just a short drive away. Another favorite was hanging out in nearby Paia, a funky beach town right around the corner. I would recommend Pineapple Cottage to anyone heading to Maui. Steve and Ivy are wonderful hosts and we arrived to fresh baked banana bread, chocolates and coffee. Their sweet dogs were also there to greet us and make sure we were safe. Overall, an experience I’ll never forget!
Wonderful stay for a family
We loved staying in pineapple cottage! It was clean, comfortable and nicely remodeled. The location was perfect for all kinds of adventures, we loved waking up to the sounds of the jungle. Steve and Ivy were so helpful and left us treats in the fridge! Our boys loved playing with their friendly dogs. Highly recommended!
