“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.
“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 !
