The perfect escape
This cottage was one of the best parts of an amazing honeymoon. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners, the house is gorgeously decorated and situated, the views are stunning. It is in a peaceful location just a short drive away from the amazing beaches of north shore Maui. Everything in the house was so well thought through and just the perfect escape from real life. If only we could have stayed!
Even better than expected
I stayed at this cottage for 11 nights. I felt so much at home that I did not want to leave, not even to go to the beach. The views are stunning. It is very private and quiet. I really liked the sound of the water fall in the gulch below. The cottage offers anything one can dream of... fully equipped kitchen, washer, dryer, towels, beach chairs, sun umbrellas, deck chairs, BBQ, outside showers, TV, DVD and a very fast and stable internet.
Haiku town is only a few minutes by car (3 minutes to be precise) where you can find groceries, restaurants and a fitness centre (which offers weekly and daily passes for tourists). Paia town and beaches can easily be reached within 15 minutes, Makawao town is also around the corner.
Barbara and Hank, the owners of this beautiful property, are very nice people and extremely helpful.
Secluded and Romantic Island Getaway
For our first trip to Maui, my husband and I decided that we wanted to stay some place away from the hustle and bustle of the beach condos. And boy are we glad that we did!!
The cottage was spacious and perfectly sized for us. Although we love the beach we were so happy to be able to drive back to our quiet and private cottage. It was the perfect location to go explore the island -- from the drive to hana, to haleakala, to the western and southern parts of the island we feel like were able to see everything we wanted. And the most delicious fish market is right down the street.
If we ever decide to go back to Maui, we will not be looking for another place to stay. Thank you Barbara and Hank!

Perfect in every way for our first trip to Hawaii !!!
We stayed at "The Cottage" March 31-April 8th to celebrate 35 years of marriage, 2 retirements, and a birthday and it was perfect in every way! We knew as we drove down the citrus and flower-lined drive to the sign pointing our way to the cottage that we had found Paradise! But only for 8 nights!!
When planning a vacation and where we will stay, we look at location, cleanliness, views, amenities, and price. The cottage was near grocery stores, beaches, towns, and the best restaurant on Maui, "Mama's Fish House". The cottage was spotless and we could have eaten off of the floors inside and also outside on the lanai (deck). It was amazingly clean! The views of the water, mountains, pastures, flowers, fruits, sunrises and sunsets were unbelievable. We loved sitting on the lanai and also inside we could enjoy the views. The personal touches from our perfect hosts were something that did not go unnoticed or unappreciated. After booking, Barbara sent us a highlighted map and typed directions to help us get from the airport to the cottage. There was a magazine rack full of guidebooks to help us plan our days. Barbara had typed directions to grocery stores with comments about what they sold. The Welcome Basket was beautiful and delicious and I loved the fresh flowers on the soap and candy dishes! Hank had also left tools under the the sink, if needed, and they had laundry detergent for us to use on the front-load washer and dryer. There is so much more I could say about how wonderful our visit to the cottage was...Paradise is just the best way. My husband said we would go back next year for 2 weeks! I can't wait! Aloha Ya'll!

Most relaxing vacation ever
My wife and I stayed at Barb & Hanks cottage for 12 days this last Feb(2013). It was the most relaxing vacation we have ever had. Every morning we drank our coffee on the lanai overlooking the green and luscious valley that leads down to the ocean. Most mornings there was a light rain and you could hear the waterfall in the distance.
The way the cottage is situated it makes it very private. One whole side is protected by the valley and pasture mentioned above, with not a house in sight. The rest of the cottage is surrounded by Barbara & Hanks' beautiful plants, trees, and flowers giving it a "tropical island" feel.
Everything in the cottage is first class and it includes everything you would need. We enjoyed coming home from a day of exploring and relaxing by putting on some island music and using the gas grill to cook steaks and/or fish for dinner. My wife and I agree that the king size bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in.
Finally the location of the cottage was perfect. It's far enough away from the touristy attractions to give you the "real" Hawaii feel; yet, you are only minutes away from restaurants and grocery stores. South side beaches are 20 minutes away.
It is simply an "awesome" place to stay!!
A wonderfully relaxing stay.
This is a lovely cottage in a great secluded location. It has wonderful views of the mountains and ocean and is surrounded with lush tropical gardens. The cottage is beautifully appointed and has everything you might need for trips out such as towels cooler, beach umbrellas and mats. Haiku has good restraunts and there are even more in nearby Para. We will certainly plan to return soon.
Chris & Mary
A perfect mix of relaxation and adventure.
This cottage is a true gem, we had the best time! Hank & Barbara are gracious hosts. They are very friendly and accommodating. Excellent job with the cottage. Everything is pristine and comfortable.
The view is even better than the pictures! The location is also perfect because there is easy access to Haleakala, the Road to Hana, cool little towns of Haiku and Paia, and the various beaches of Maui.
There is not a better place to stay in Maui if you are looking for a memorable vacation. We can't wait to come back!
This is a nice place to stay away from all the touristy locations. It is relaxing and beautiful...almost started to feel like home before we left. There is a grocery store within minutes and you get get just about anywhere you want/need to on the island within an hour-two hours. Plus, Paia is a nice town which is like 15 min away and the airport is only 30 min away. Barbara and Hank are very kind and hospitable.
If you want a romantic hideaway or just a place to relax this is perfect. The only downside I thought was that if you had activities planned elsewhere on the island they weren't as close as if you stayed on the other side of the island, but my husband liked this about the cottage so it all depends on your preference. Plus, there were some neat little towns and places we seen that we would not have been able to experience if we stayed in a more populated area. I would certainly go back to the cottage again without hesitation.
Peaceful and lovely
We had a wonderful stay at the cottage during a week's cycling vacation on the island. It is nestled in the green hills of Haiku with a gorgeous view of the bay down below. You will wake up to the sounds of roosters, cows and birds, and you will see at least one rainbow every day from the cottage porch. This is a tranquil and comfortable space in which to relax and unwind. For us, it also offered a perfect base for exursions on our bikes to all sides of the island and up the volcano.
The cottage is well designed and well equipped, and the outdoor deck is a fantastic place to hang out, eat a meal, relax. Barbara and Hank are friendly and generous hosts, readily available to help with any issue, but they also respect your privacy. Location is wonderfully secluded and yet offers easy accessibility (10-15 min) to shops, restaurants and beaches of Paia.

So ...you need to close your eyes and envision what it would be like to live in Paradise.
Waking up in the morning from a wonderful sleep in an extreemly comfortable bed. Before you open your eyes , you feel the balmy breezes floating through the sliding doors on two sides of the cottage and birds softly singing to you. You finally open your eyes( while still in bed) and see lush vegetation with bright flowers including bananas hanging from trees. You finally decide to arise to be greeted to the rolling hills and vegetation from your panoramic view. You take your morning refreshments and sit at the patio table for 2 on the two sided porch and say continuously...this truly is a romantic paradise. The cottage absolutely has all the comforts of home with very impressive quality. Even though Barb refers to it as < the cottage> luxury is abound. When you leave the cottage for the day, you travel down a private lane peppered with Hawaiian flowers and your hardest decision for the day will be whether to turn right or left . When you return in the evening, it is truly like coming home where you can enjoy a cool drink on the porch while creating wonderful smells on the impressive high quality BBQ. You can read a book, watch TV , play cards ( even provided) or just talk about your awesome day. When you turn in for the evening you lay in bed and think how fortunate life is that you have had the opportunity to meet two special people such as Barb and Hank and that they shared their little bit of paradise with you. Before nodding off you can hear a nearby waterfall lulling you to sleep, and before you know it , you are hearing the birds coaxing you awake in the morning. Words cannot express the Paradise that Barb and Hank have created including the black cows with white socks in the distant meadows.
We will be back >>> that is a promise !
Frankie and Gerald from Ottawa Canada
Absolutely beautiful and relaxing.
This beautiful cottage is in a private setting with wonderful views from the deck. Being on the north shore of Maui it is a bit more relaxing and slower paced than being on the west shore, but nevertheless not a long drive to Lahaina. The cottage is close to the start of the drive to Hana and the drive up Haleakala. The cottage is extremely well equipped and the owners Barbara and Hank have thought of everything, including beach chairs and a cooler to take to the beach. The decor is beautiful and very comfortable. We enjoyed returning to the cottage after a busy day of Maui activities as we found it so peaceful and relaxing. We often enjoyed using the barbecue and eating on the deck that overlooks Ho'okipa Bay instead of going out for meals.

A dream vacation and the perfect place to stay!
We recently visited Maui for the first time to celebrate our 29th anniversary and had the pleasure of staying at Hookipa Bayview Cottage in upcountry Haiku. The moment we walked in the door, we felt like we were in paradise. From the Hawaiian music playing on the stereo, to the welcome fruit basket on the table and fresh cut flowers in a vase, we knew this was no ordinary vacation. Barbara and Hank had thought of everything we could possibly need to enjoy Maui. What a pleasure to wake up to the sounds of tropical birds and have that first sip of coffee on the lanai, looking out at the Pacific Ocean. The cottage is perfectly located, right off the Road to Hana, and about 1/2 hour from the wonderful South Maui beaches. Great shopping and fun restaurants in Paia await, just a short drive away. The cottage was such a welcome respite, after a day of touring. We loved the ability to unwind with a glass of wine on the lanai, watch the sunset over the West Maui mountains, and feel incredibly lucky that we had found the perfect secluded place to celebrate our anniversary. Sadly, our week went way too quickly, but we know we will return to Maui, and when we do, we will stay once again at Hookipa Bayview Cottage.

A year later--missing Maui.
An excellent place to call a temporary home. We has the pleasure of staying for nearly two weeks last summer. The house was beautiful and clean, a lovely jungle respite each morning and night. We spent much of our time traversing the island seeing as much as a day would allow, but we loved coming back to the cottage and listening to the rain with a bottle of wine. Perfect.
Linda and John
Didn't want to leave!
Yes, we loved Maui and all it had to offer; the beaches, hiking, perfect weather and funky up country towns nearby. What made our stay so lovely though was coming back to the cottage every day knowing we had ambience galore with seclusion, quiet, and beautiful views waiting for us. The architecture and design of the cottage is beautiful with a lanai that provides views of lush valley, hills and ocean. It was the perfect spot to enjoy breakfasts and later gin and tonics while watching the sunsets. Barbara and Hank were the perfect hosts - unobtrusive yet there if you needed them. Knowing we'll be back next year (we've already booked) made leaving easier but only just a little!

Perfect anniversary Vacation getaway!!!
There is peaceful, magical beauty about this place. The sunrise and sunset views are gorgeous. The decor is island inspired perfection. Hank's gardens look and smell amazing. Just pack a suitcase, everything else you could need or want is provided. Don't miss dinner at Mama's fish house. We were planning our next trip here before we left. Barbara and Hank have great respect for your privacy and are perfect hosts for your visit to this beautiful island.
going to mauie
This was my fourth trip to Maui and my first staying "up country". After staying in Barbara and Hank's Haiku paradise I won't be going back to the Four Seasons anytime soon. The cottage was perfect, beyond expectation. Hank and Barbara provide everything we needed, coolers, beach chairs, a welcome fruit basket, etc.
They were there when we needed them and otherwise invisible. We hardly saw a bug the whole time.
Perfect secluded home away from home
We absolutely loved staying at Hank and Barbara's guest cottage, the Hookipa Bayview Cottage, for 8 nights in November 2011. When we travel, we prefer a secluded house (or apartment if we are in bigger cities) to staying in hotels and resorts, and Hank and Barbara's cottage was absolutely perfect in every way. We loved going in the bustle and hustle during the day (most activities in South or West Maui are 30-45 minutes away) and coming back to this quiet house with a gorgeous view on the valley (and the ocean and West Maui when it was clear), barbequing and sitting on the lanai. Hank and Barbara were kind enough to offer us fresh vegetables and herbs from their garden every day, and provided us with fruit as well. On nights we didn't want to cook, Paia is minutes away with tons of great restaurants. The cottage is extremely well stocked (even found a French press which we used), clean and nicely decorated. We loved the bed (which is a king), the many sliding doors, the lanai that goes around half of the house, the sound of the waterfall on rainy nights. It was perfect in every way!

We loved this place !
after a long flight from Europe, what a delight to rest at Hookipa Bayview cottage. We were warmly welcomed by Barbara and Hank, with beautiful flowers and an delicious welcoming basket (oh these fresh foods !). Barbara and Hank were helpful if you need them (thank you for the list of markets and groceries to keep in the car!) , and yet very discrete. The cottage is spacious, very comfortable, clean and very well maintained. We appreciated every convenience and amenities (i.e. washer/dryer). The surroundings are stupendious, as well as the views to the ocean and West Maui Mountains. Secluded in green, tropical environment full of flowers, and yet close access to Hookipa Beach Park to watch the surfers, to Hana Road and Halaekala Road. Maui Upcountry has lovely places to discover too (Makawao, Waihou Springs Trail, Botanical Gardens ...). After a visiting or hiking day, what a pleasure to come back to this private oasis of quietness ! We recommend this address to anyone seeking another Maui than the touristic and crowded places. Mahalo Barbara and Hank for sharing your wonderful place.
Jonathan & Michele
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Kline's cottage.
It was everything we hoped for and more! The online photos were beautiful and the actual cottage, and it's surroundings, even more so! Every convenience was provided, from beach towels and chairs, to a blow dryer, and even a French Press for coffee. The washer and dryer out back made it easy to clean up after a day at the beach. Barbara and Hank were wonderful hosts and were very helpful in recommending restaurants and places to visit. They even provided a CD guided tour for the Road to Hana. They made us feel like we'd been friends forever! The island is just breathtaking, the food was awesome and the hospitality even better. We are already plotting and planning our next trip. We will definitely be back! Thank you Barbara and Hank!

Home away from Home
Made us feel like it was our home for a week. The beautiful view from the deck was a favorite spot, especially for breakfast.
The setting was as close to paradise as we've been.
What a wonderful place to spend our 30th wedding anniversary! The cottage was perfect for 2 people and had everything we needed-- kitchen,linens were well stocked and the house was super clean. Hank and Barbara respected our privacy, yet were there and helpful if we needed them. Hank's bananas were great!!
The setting of the cottage is beautiful--lush vegetation and the flowers--oh, the flowers!! We had most of our meals on the deck and the aroma of the flowers was wonderful.
For our plans, the cottage was in a perfect central location--other towns/beaches that we were interested in were within one hour or less of the cottage.
Great place to stay--we would definitely stay there again if we go back and it's just the two of us.
Deb and Dale Bahnmaier
Surrounded by a beautiful nature
We stayed at Hookipa Bayview for five days and we were very pleased by the architecture of the building and the quality of the furniture.
The area is definitely very quiet, in the middle of a very rich vegetation. The view is beautiful, but what we really appreciated are the flowers and their scent which we felt also inside the house.
Only drawback are mosquitos ... the house is fully protected with special curtains so no problem inside, but before you go out, make sure you are protected by a repellent.
Frank & Verena
It was a great start in our honeymoon
Hank and Barbara have a beautyful place with a wonderful garden. A lot of flowers around and in the house. We realy enjoyed our stay there. It was a silent place where you can relax with a beautyful view. It is a good place to start trips to every destination on Maui. We had a great time there and we would love to come back one day.
Big Bear City CA
I highly recommend this place; everything about it was fantastic
I manage about 90 private home vacation rentals, most of which are luxury properties, and I've always vacationed at private home rentals rather than hotels. This vacation home is as good as it gets! The home itself is gorgeous and the surrounding property and views are fantastic. It is fully equipped with everything you would want or expect in a high end luxury property. Hank and Barbara are the most gracious hosts I've ever dealt with...there in a heartbeat if you need them, but "invisible" if you don't, combining great service with complete privacy. And the location is ideal...about 20-25 minutes from the airport, but completely out in the country away from the hustle and bustle of being in town. Everything about is is perfect. Both as a professional in the same business, and as a private vacationer, I very highly recommend this place to you. When I return to Maui its where I will stay again! Aloha

The Real Hawaii
Many travelers who vacation in Hawaii really do seem to miss out on the true nature of the islands. It can probably even be assumed many vacationers are looking for that misleading "Hawaii Five-0" excitement. Shame, shame.
Hawaiian paradise goes far beyond sipping margaritas on a sun-kissed beach, enjoying a luxury massage by the poolside, or spending hours shopping on the streets of Honolulu. Hawaii is a culture, and to truly experience this culture, one needs to know where to look:
Tucked away in the luscious hills on the island of Maui, there is a small dirt path closely guarded between groves of banana and orange trees. Driving up this path you will discover a charming little cottage overlooking the Ho'okipa Bay and warmly embraced by surrounding tropical flowers and green vegetation. In the evenings you can hear a distant howl of a wind, forewarning the hills of a light mist to come, an experience that is hauntingly beautiful.
The Ho'okipa Bay Cottage is located only within minutes from the tiny rustic town of Paia, and situated right on the way to the famous Hana Highway. During your stay at the cottage, you will begin to feel like a true Hawaiian local. This is the real Hawaii.
Relaxing and peaceful haven on Maui
My partner and I recently stayed at the lovely Hookipa Bayview Cottage. The location is right in Haiku and is very central on the island and not far (but plenty far enough) from the airport. The cottage served as a great jumping off point for our many adventures the first part of our stay on Maui. It's right near Upcountry (we fell in love with Makawao) and is well on the way to the Haleakala Crater, which is where we spent a good portion of our trip. It's also a great place to start your drive to Hana, which is a must. And even West Maui wasn't too far away, as we spent several days on that part of the island, too.
As for the place itself, its very clean and homey and is surrounded by lush and peaceful gardens. We particularly loved dining on the lanai every night, looking out over the bay and the beautiful meadow right next to the cottage. You can't imagine a more peaceful setting.
The bed and furniture was very comfortable and we were able to get the much needed rest and relaxation that we were seeking.
Barbara was a gracious host and made us feel very welcome, with plenty of instructions for the house, a lovely arrival gift basket, and an in-person visit and follow-up check-in phone call to make sure all was well. Barbara and Hank live in the main house right next to the cottage, but there is plenty of privacy and they are very courteous neighbors.
We were very sad to leave and are already planning for our next visit!
Peaceful cottage and garden - best relaxing vacations
We loved the peace and quiet, enjoyed the beautiful surroundings of our cottage. The house offers everything you need for a comfortable stay - including folding seats we didn't think we'd use but they came handy to rest and have lunch on the beach after surfing :)
The garden, lovingly and carefully designed and tended to, is full of enchanting flowery smells.
Surfing and exploring Maui didn't leave us enough time to unwind at the cottage. But every minute spent there was just what we had dreamed: carefree relaxing precious moments.
Great place to experience Maui
Our stay at the Hookipa Bayview Cottage was fantastic! Barbara and Hank are the perfect hosts...available if you need them, otherwise you have complete privacy. The cottage has everything you need and more...Bbq, Washer/Dryer, Iron, Cable, Internet, Pots/Pans, Flashlight, etc. You can tell that Barbara & Frank put a lot of thought into making sure their guests are very comfortable. The cottage has beautiful ocean and mountain views which can be constantly enjoyed through the floor to ceiling windows and lanai that surrounds the cottage. It is secluded and private, yet close to shops, restaurants, beaches, and all kinds of activities. We enjoyed the local town atmosphere to the touristy resort environment and feel it was the best way to experience Maui. We highly recommend the Hookipa Bayview Cottage and we definitely plan on returning the next time we go back to Maui.

Best vacation ever!!!
My wife and I stayed at the cottage to celebrate our tenth anniversary. It was the best vacation ever and the cottage was the best part of it. Barbara and Hank are warm, friendly,and gracious hosts. The cottage was very clean, well maintained, and stunningly beautiful. It's very quiet with a great view of the ocean and West Maui. If you want to be surrounded by sunburned tourists and cheap jewelry this is not the place for you. If what you want is peace, quiet, and the undivided attention of your significant other, there is no place better. We can't wait to come back. I urge anyone who wants a wonderful vacation to stay here.

This was our first trip to Hawaii and the cottage was our first impression of the aloha spirit of the islands! Barbara & Hank have done everything right. The cottage is beautifully appointed. The surrounding grounds are lushly lanscaped as a tropical paradise! We felt serenely private but not isolated. A neighborhood grocery store, a few resturants, and a post office were just 4-5 minutes away. The location was ideal for us, away from the hustle and bustle and noise of big hotels and rows of condos. We sat outside on the lovely wrap-around porch as much as possible to drink in the beautiful mountain and water views. Barbara and Hank provided us with everything we needed: maps, restaurant guides, activities, a cooler, beach chairs, etc. Attention to amenities was so impressive! My husband & I hope to return to Maui someday and there's no place we would consider staying other than Hookipa Bayview Cottage!
Wonderful honeymoon cottage
My husband and I stayed at the cottage for a full week on our honeymoon...it could not have been more perfect! Relaxing, beautiful and peaceful. Hank and Barbara made every effort to make us feel welcome and at home. We can't wait to go back!!

lovely Maui holiday
Our Maui holiday was to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary with a lovely relaxing stay at Barbara & Hank's cottage. This was our first trip to Maui and we loved the tucked away serene location, yet a only a short drive to any corner of the island. We spent each day driving a different direction finding many resturants, beaches, and shopping to explore. The cottage was clean and tastefully decorated, large windows leading to a wrap around lanai with a breathtaking view. Nestled in it's own tropical garden the cottage was roomy and quaint. A fully stocked kitchen with great grocery shopping near by...loved being able to bbq anytime! Barbara and Hank were wonderful hosts! Thank you, and hope to see you again!

peace and quiet
This is a wonderful place to experience Maui. The view from the guest house is magnificent with a waterfall nearby which you can hear after a rainfall. The home is immaculate and secluded. If you're looking for a place away from the tourist crowds with great accmodations, this is the place to be. Hank and Barbara were great hosts. Mike and Judy, Amherst, Wi
Peace and beauty on Maui
After more than 40 trips to Hawaii over the years, we now seek out those special places to stay that provide peace, beauty and seclusion. This cottage is a unique fit for our criteria. We plan to make this our Maui stop from now on. The owners, Barbara and Hank, are very pleasant and caring and provide accessable and appropriate hostessing without intrusion. They are a delight to share a glass of wine with. We enjoy the vistas and the green lush setting of this cottage located literally on the edge of a major gulch with ocean views and the West Maui mountains and Molakai in the background. Haiku, Paia, Makawao, and beaches are only minutes away.

A honeymoon paradise in Maui!
If you are looking for the best place for your honeymoon or your anniversary - you have found it.
We have spent a memorable week here! Staying at this cottage made our honeymoon absolutely fantastic. It has everything you need: first class location for driving to all parts of the island, very nice house equipped with everything you can imagine, panoramic bay view from the lanai, wonderful flowers and friendly owner.
When we decided to choose this cottage, we have seen that is is very nice; but when we arrived, we didn't find the right word for it. The whole cottage is breathtaking, we felt like we were in paradise!
We will come back, because we have to leave throug it again!

We stayed at Ho'okipa Bayview Cottage for our 25th anniversary and it was spectacular. We were looking for privacy and a peaceful place to relax and we definitely found it. Hank and Barb have paid attention to every detail and have truly made this place seem like you are stepping into your own private cottage. Whatever you could think of needing, just open a drawer or cupboard and it will be there. The spectacular view and the cottage's beautiful and meticulously maintained gardens are truly a sight to behold. We cooked our own breakfasts, went sightseeing, came back and grilled most of our own dinners. There are local grocery stores and we ordered take out from a local restaurant, which was also excellent. This cottage is truly a paradise and we are hoping to return in a few years for another visit.

The other reviewers have said it well... Ho'okipa Bayview Cottage provides the rare combination of privacy, openness, views and quiet. This is a quality accommodation that will have you sleeping with the tropical breezes wafting through the cottage and enjoying leisurely breakfasts on the lanai overlooking the valley, neighboring hills and Ho'okipa Bay. With many other lodgings you always wonder and are often disappointed by what the pictures and descriptions don't reveal. In the case of Ho'okipa Bayview Cottage the actuality exceeds expectations.
In addition to enjoying the cottage we spent our days exploring the up country towns, enjoying lunches at the many excellent restaurants in the area, and taking walks on quiet, mile-long Baldwin Beach. After a relaxing day out and about we always looked forward to returning to our 'home' in time to enjoy the sunset from the lanai.
We have stayed in various types of lodgings and locations in Hawaii. Probably the best comment we can make about our experience at this place is that after two weeks at the cottage we immediately booked a longer stay for next year. Thank you, Barbara and Hank!

Best place to stay in Maui
We were married during our visit to Maui. We stayed at the Hookipa Bayview Cottage. We knew ahead of time that the cottage would be nice, but it far exceeded our expectations. It was roomy, clean and met our every need. The surroundings were absolutely gorgeous and it must be the most private accommodation on the island. We also felt that we were only minutes from the most beautiful beach on the island. A big thank you to Barbara and Hank for sharing this gem with us on our very special occasion.
Celebrated 41st anniversary along with vacation. Really enjoyed the cottage. Very quiet. Great place to stay.

The cottage was very comfortable. The scenery was magnificent. Hank and Barbara were helpful and friendly. They furnished everything you could want - all we needed to do was buy a few food items to prepare relaxing meals "at home". Convenient location for driving to all parts of the island. Relaxing and private. Staying at their cottage made our vacation absolutely fantastic.

Tropical,calm,beautiful and very relaxing.
We usually stay at the beach but this was in most ways better. Very relaxing and cottage elegant. Friendly hosts. Up country but not too far from the beach, towns and the airport. We will be returning.
This cottage had it all.
Ho'okipa Bay Cottage was a jewel. We enjoyed waking up to the sounds of the tropics and relaxing on the porch with a beautiful view of the bay. It was a perfect location for us to explore the island. We particularly enjoyed the town of Paia with it's fun, unique shopping and eating establishments. Barbara and Hank have thought of everything you might need, including aloe vera lotion in case of sunburn! I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Our home away from home
Aloha. We are Warren & Diana from Elkhart in. We have vacationed on Maui five times previously at a lovely resort, right on the beach, for two weeks per year. We then decided to get away fro the crowd & the pseudo Hawaii resort scene to a more affordable, quiet, peaceful & authentic place. Fortunately we discovered Hookipa Bayview cottage in Upcountry Maui. The cottage is immaculate, open & airy and comfortable. The view of the bay & mountains from the lanai is spectacular. Hank & Barbara are the perfect hosts. They are efficient, yet, friendly without being intrusive. We enjoy the scenic byways & small villages of Upcountry Maui. There are many fine restaurants with good food & local musical entertainment. The citrus fruit, pineapple fields, & fragrant colorful tropical flowers add a special touch to the island experience. Awe inspiring are the rainbows appearing & disappearing as the sun shines through a gently soft & misty rain, all adding to the almost ethereal atmosphere of Upcountry Maui.
We like to relax with coffee & fresh scones while sitting at the Hookipa Bay Overlook watching the surfers & wind surfers ride the waves. Great place to catch a glimpse of whales also.
The cottage is located near everything we enjoy and yet is tucked away in a peaceful & quiet location. We have been able to stay at Hookipa Bayview cottage for an entire month each year for the past three years and are looking forward to coming back again in 2011. We love it at Hookipa Bayview cottage.

Charming & Relaxing Cottage Escape
We're very happy we chose this cheerful cottage for our honeymoon stay. It's away from the congested hotels, yet close to the airport,beaches,shops & restaurants. It's an easy, scenic drive to other island areas. Cottage is nestled in area surrounded by beautiful & fragrant trees & flowers & overlooks a deep lush gulch. The cottage is very comfortable/charming in dÃ©cor. The area is very clean, spacious & functional. Barbara & Hank are wonderful hosts. The place is fully stocked with all sorts of necessities. They thought of everything for your home away from home. When our paths crossed during our stay, they checked to make sure you weren't in need of anything. The panoramic view from the lanai is spectacular. Such a pleasure to enjoy the evening sunsets & arise to the beautiful view of the nearby fields, gleaming bay & the majestic west mountains each day. The area is very tranquil & serene - no road traffic or noisy nearby neighbors during any time of the day. We found the cottage to be delightful & far superior than a hotel room & much cozier than a condo unit. Great constant gentle breezes. It was very comfortable to relax in or outdoors during the day as well as sleeping during the evening. We appreciated the invitation to cut & enjoy the grounds' flowers which we did. Hank also has an outstanding garden with quite a variety of produce that he willingly offers up for you to enjoy. Something is always ready for harvesting & consuming-can't get any fresher or better than that! We are looking forward to returning one day soon.

My husband and i went for 2 wks honeymoon.
Cottage is spotless/comforting with a fruit basket that Hank and Barb left for us with flowers. They live close-by and are friendly, helpful, good at letting us enjoy the seclusion of the cottage. We woke to birds/gentle breezes, felt like we were in paradise! Tiny geckos (harmless) are common. The cottage is beautiful/open. High-beamed ceilings and hardwood floors make it feel both rustic and exotic. We had breakfast at the table on wrap-around lanai. Nice views of the bay and the valley. Grounds covered with flowers, trees. Bbq and laundry around the back! Also found beach chairs, cooler, towels.
Haiku town is lovely, far from tourist zones. We did see all those areas eventually and everyday had plans but coming back to the cottage each evening was refreshing, better than busy, bustling hotel area. Do note that its a bit of a drive to anywhere on the island but it's a central location. We enjoyed cooking our own meals with micro, coffee pot, and BBQ! Good to save $, healthy, and no typical vacation stomach issues. We liked the variety of fruits/veggies available. Hank is generous to offer some of his home-grown! Bananas were our fav! Hank and Barb were generous to all our requests. Ask and you shall receive! Each evening we'd relax after our adventures enjoying tv/radio, lounge on the lanai from which i'd watch the sunset and read. In the mountains weather varies quite a bit from our hotter/drier destinations. Almost always sunny/warm. But quite a few quick misty rains to cool the air.
If you are looking for privacy/relaxation, this cottage is for you! Comfortable, cozy, quiet, not your typical vacation rental. For those who are looking to get away, enjoy each other, nature, and the serenity of being in 'upcountry' Maui.

Beautiful tropical retreat
It was our first visit to Maui and this lovely cottage made it a fantastic and memorable one! Haiku is a quiet village away from touristy areas and we liked it a lot. Many thanks to Barbara & Hank, this property has all you need for a comfortable stay and even more - first you enter the flowering driveway you will find Hank's beautiful tropical garden - he is a gifted gardener! Then a sweet welcome basket of hawaiian treats on the dining table relieve your jet lag - we loved their homegrown bananas! Spotless and beautifully furnished island style rooms make you feel at home, and once you open the large sliding doors the rooms are filled with bright natural light and tropical breeze. The view from the lanai is just breathtaking and a must-see! We liked to have breakfast on the lanai and enjoy peaceful morning with colorful birds and rainbows. Beach towels and a cold box in the closet came in handy when we went surfing. Oh, don't forget to grab the straw mat from the backyard as well. We stayed for a week and explored the whole island, and felt sure that we have chosen the best place to stay on Maui. One of our most unforgettable memories is the beautiful sunrise from the top of Haleakara...it was indeed amazing, but what we miss most is those wonderful time we spent at the Hookipa Bayview Cottage. Barbara & Hank - thanks again for everything, we really hope to return!
My husband and I stayed in three areas while on Maui: a condo on the beach, a resort and Barbara and Hank's cottage. This is the perfect setting for those who desire a peaceful retreat. Rainbows, lush tropical gardens, a view of the ocean and all varieties of birds. One small green bird perched on my husband for an extended visit one morning while we were having our coffee - thats how friendly this spot is.
A delightful, airy cottage perched on a hillside with an incredible view of the Pacific and the setting sun. The cottage had more than the necessary modern amenities which make it possible to prepare food there and eat on the lanai. Impeccably clean inside and out with courteous hosts who share their garden delights with you. We hope to return soon.
Excellent location to escape the crowds
A great location to escape the crowded parts of Maui, perfect of you want to explore the whole island. Peaceful, relaxing, everything you need is in the cottage. Hank and Barbara are friendly and helpful but not in your face.
A private retreat in paradise
This little cottage was the perfect size for the two of us. You really feel like you're on your own private island. I loved waking up to the birds chirping and the sounds of the breeze in the trees. You can tell the owners are meticulous about maintaining the property–everything was spotless. It isn't on the beach, in fact it's not in a touristy part of the island, which was a plus for us. You really get the feel for what it's like to be a local. You can easily get to the touristy areas by car (less than an hour to most places). Grilling some of Hank's fresh asparagus was a real treat (so were the rest of the veggies he grows!)
Beautiful, clean cottage with a fabulous porch and view!
Cottage was super cute! Clean and everything you could need and want was there. Hank and Barbara were great and took care of all of our needs. the view from the cottage was great, lovely wrap around deck to sit and enjoy. Nice outta the way location.
The experience at the Hookipa Bayview Cottage was very relaxing.
The accomodations were easy to set up with Barbara and no surprises along the way. The cottage was spotless when we arrived. The home had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. In my view, it was superior to a hotel. The stay was perfect and I'd return to stay again if I ever make it back to Maui.

Complete privacy and relaxation away from resorts
This was our third stay, though it has been 3 years
since our last visit. We thought that the cottage
might have deteriorated in that time, but no!
Barbara and Hank, who are perfect hosts, maintain
it meticulously. It has absolutely everything you
need, including kitchen, BBQ, laundry, beach
towels, internet, TV, phone, etc., etc.. More
importantly, it is spotless, quiet and has a great
view towards Ho'okipa Bay, West Maui and Molokai.
It's only a few minutes drive to Haiku marketplace
with a good grocery store and two good restaurants
(though we chose to cook most meals). And only 10
minutes from Paia, an interesting surfer town with
a great grocery store (Mana Foods) and a number of
interesting shops and restaurants - including
Flatbread Pizza, offering some of the best pizzas
we have ever had, in a great open concept
atmosphere. Good access to Hana, Upcountry, Makawao
and Haleakala too, but a bit of a drive if you're
interested in West Maui (Kapalua, Lahaina, etc.) -
still quite do-able though.
A great getaway
Tucked away on the north shore in a lush tropical environment, the Hookipa Bayview cottage provided a perfect place to launch each day's adventure and return for a peaceful and relaxing evening. We fondly recall awakening each morning to the songs of tropical birds. Fresh fruit from the surrounding yard were an extra bonus. The feeling of seclusion and being part of the local environment yet so close to all the things we wanted to do was a great combination. I highly recommend this cottage!
Very good place to stay on Maui
The cottage is on a private driveway/road that runs
though what looks like an orchard. The location in
Haiku is not initially hard to find, but driving
home at night we often found our portable navigator
very handy. The roads all look alike (to us
tourists anyway) and there is very little street
lighting. The private cottage is large inside and
appears extremely well built. A great BBQ grill and
a large clothes washer and dryer are located
outside in back. It is well stocked with
appliances, dishes etc., we were not in need of
anything. The thing I liked best was the big king
bed, least the small(ish) couch. It is a very well
managed, high quality establishment. I highly
recommend the Hookipa Bayview cottage.

A great place to stay on Maui
Our stay at the Aloha Hookipa Bayview Cottage was an extremely pleasant experience. As it is located in central Maui, it provided an excellent base for my wife and me to tour the entire island. The well landscaped setting is very private and extremely quiet, yet only a few miles away from routes to easily access Haleakala National Park, west Maui, and the road to Hana. The cottage is roomy, very clean, and comfortable. After only a few minutes it felt just like home. Everything we needed was provided from a toaster for our breakfast toast to a gas grill to prepare our evening meal. There were even scissors to cut a few of the beautiful flowers surrounding the cottage that Barbara welcomed us to cut! It is definitely a great place to stay if you want to avoid the crowds yet see and experience the island of Maui.

Peace and quiet with everything close by
Barbara and Hank Kline have an absolutely wonderful vacation/honeymoon cottage tucked away in Haiku, Maui, just 15 minutes from the perfectly sized small town of Paia. The cottage is situated on 2 acres of their gorgeously self-landscaped property, which you will with their main residence, but the house and cottage are invisible to each other due to the ample landscaping. Spend some time with Hank in his impressive vegetable garden, or talk to them about the myriad of flowers and foliage decorating their property. The cottage is newly constructed and perfectly sized for two. There are so many full length windows that no matter which way your turn, its nearly impossible not to see the hillside of Haleakala, the ocean, or the beautiful landscaping. The Kline's provide everything you could ever need, such as pots & pans, washer & dryer, beach chairs, beach mats, cookware, plates, silverware, king size bed, plush bath and beach towels, the list could go on and on. If you needed it, they had it! (they also encourage you to ask them if something you need happens to not already be in the cottage.) Hank and Barbara have stocked their magazine rack with local restaurant menus from the nearby towns of Haiku and Paia. The cottage is very quiet, we were never woken up by any type of outside noise, even sleeping with the windows open. The cottage is situated 5 minutes from the Hana Highway, where you're already 10 miles into the road to Hana (past the boring part). The cottage is located such that you never have to drive very far to get to great local beaches or restaurants (10 min tops), and its under a 40 minute drive to South Maui and about an hour to West Maui. We found the cottage to fit our needs perfectly. Barbara and Hank are super friendly and have done a tremendous job providing everything you could want for a perfect Maui getaway nestled away from the hustle and bustle of Maui tourists. We would recommend this cottage to anyone and we look forward to a return trip!!

Our stay at Ho'okipa Bayview Cottage was perfect. Barb and Hank thought of everything to make us comfortable and welcome. The cottage and grounds were immaculate and so well stocked with everything we needed. It was so peaceful and we will tell everyone where to stay when they visit Maui!

Wonderfully Relaxing Get-Away
My wife and I stayed a week, enough time to relax and refresh us. The cottage
is bright, airy and very clean. Although within site of the main house, the
cottage has its own driveway and is very private. Barbara and Hank have
included everything needed for a wonderful holiday, even beach towels, beach
chairs and a cold box.
We enjoyed spectacular sunsets, rainbows, real (warm) rain and the sweet
smells and sounds that can only come from a rain forest environment.
We definitely want to return!

Paradise in Maui
I can't say enough about how wonderful Hookipa Bayview Cottage was. Everything was pristine clean. Everything you need is there. The BBQ was in mint condition. There was a hot plate, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker. All the comforts of home and more. Not only was the location beautiful to sit on the great lanai and see the bay below, but at night there was a wonderful breeze and you were never really hot. It was perfect. I would go back in a heartbeat. We also discovered a nice little restaurant in Haiku with entertainment on Monday nights. It was great. We stayed 11 days and loved every one of them. I would encourage everyone to stay for at least 7-8 minimum in order to see the island in it's entirety. Definitely our best lodging experience in all of the Hawaiian Islands.
