Our cottage is located on the beautiful north shore of Maui 12 miles from the Kahului Airport. We have a 2-acre estate which is totally fenced in and sits on top of the hill with ocean views and the islands of Maui and Molokai on the horizon.

The cottage has a full kitchen, high speed wireless internet, washer-dryer, phone, TV/VCR, and sleeps 2-5 people depending on your wishes. There is a large master bedroom with a king size bed and a very comfortable foam futon couch in the living room. The other bedroom with a full size bed is on the front porch and has a separate entrance. This cottage is very private, clean and comfortable.

The property abounds with coconut, bananas, avocados, limes, grapefruit, papayas, lychee, mangoes, coffee, guava, lemons, and passion fruit. There is an acre and a half of open lawn to relax on or for children to enjoy.

Haiku is the old pineapple center of Maui, and they are still grown in nearby fields. There are many shops and and excellent restaurants close by.

There is usually a breeze blowing and the temperature gets down to 70 at night and up to around 80 in the daytime.

About The Owner

Gregg and Danielle have lived in Hawaii since they were 18. Gregg is a retired jeweler/gem dealer who now is a glass bead artist. Danielle spends her time growing orchids and tropical flowers on their property. Gregg is a classic car guy and there is always something interesting in his garage. He has a 1964 Shelby 289 Cobra and a 1959 Porsche Carrera Speedster. Guests may want to ask him for a ride.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1988

Why The Owner chose Haiku-Pauwela

Haiku is all about open space and cool ocean breezes. We are both water people and need to be close to the beach. Maui's historical past is still alive in Haiku, a great alternative to the resort area on the other side of the island.

What makes this cottage unique

We enjoy avocados, coconuts, lemons, limes, oranges, papayas, jackfruit, coffee beans, and more. We also grow many tropical flowers and orchids. You will feel like it's your own home every time you come up the palm lined driveway.

Peaceful, Breathtaking, Comfortable , Local Maui Experience...

  • 5 of 5


Our hosts were great at communicating before and throughout our stay. We were welcomed the night we arrived and happy to see the beauty and comfort that would be our home for our 8 day stay. Fresh avocados, bananas and lemons were left for us by Danielle, who gave us a quick lay of the land and then quickly let us get settled in. We enjoyed several activities all over the island and never felt too far away from our lining, snorkeling, Hana trail, a local concert with Willie K, whale watching and swimming with sea turtles. It was amazing to learn about the island. We had fabulous fresh food and visited local FARMS !!! We rested too, listening to the morning birds and the evening winds were heavenly. Cooking meals and preparing picnics in the cottage was easy. They had everything we needed. Danielle took me on a tour of her gardens and I brought home many inspiring photos to help me with my gardening. She is a artist with lots of knowledge about tropicals and orchids.The grounds are a delight at any turn. Blooms galore and local food too ! The local restaurants are excellent. We are thankful for Danielle and Gregg's recommendations. We were not disappointed. If you get a chance to go to NUKA, don't hesitate. It "Broke the Mouth", it was fresh and a gastronomic pleasure. Having access to WiFi was important for our work and to keep in touch family left at home. Our adult son was on leave and was able to join us for a time. Having the separate apartment was perfect for him. Maui Dream Cottage is a wonderful location for a private, peaceful stay while visiting Hawaii ,. It has unique local flavor and all the amenities we needed and more. Mahalo, Danielle and Gregg

This cottage is beautifully equipped and decorated in a very attractive tropical garden.

  • 5 of 5

Located in the rural Haiku area, the cottage provides good access to a number of prime attractions. The cottage is just a few miles from the start of the road to Hana; we were able to drive to the summit of Haleakala volcano in 90 minutes; the nice snorkeling beaches in the Makena area are within an easy drive. The cottage is well maintained, very comfortable, and very private. I think it provided a very good value for Maui. The WiFi was spotty at first, but Greg got that straightened out during our stay.

Loved it! The real Maui

  • 5 of 5

Nice quaint cottage away from the most touristy areas of Maui. Felt like a home away from home. Beautiful gardens, very quiet, prefered it to the Hyatt Regency in Kaanapali. Gregg and Danielle were wonderful, gave us our privacy, and gifted us with a nice card and bottle of Champagne to celebrate our wedding day. Loved our stay here.

Beautiful property in great location

  • 5 of 5

MDC was the perfect size for my family (2 adults + 2 kids). The owners take great care of the cottage and grounds. We enjoyed seeing all the beautiful orchids and having fresh avocado from the tree! The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals and the view from the table was great. The linens throughout were clean and soft. We enjoyed our stay very much!

Almost perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay! The owners are super nice people and the property is absolutely beautiful. It is located just close enough to main population areas to have everything you'd need or want, and just far enough away to feel worlds away from urban life. It has all you'd need to cook food in, so go grocery shopping and save some money. There is a washer and dryer as well!

The one thing that I will warn about is, if you are tethered to your phone or absolutely must have internet all the time, know in advance that your cell phone won't work here (maybe one bar on Verizon) and while there is wifi, it is not super dependable. This is not necessarily bad thing. You are in Maui after all and the life you are on vacation from can wait till you get home, but just in case you have been warned.

Overall I recommend the stay here. Particularly if you have been to the island before and stayed at a resort. You will see a different Maui here.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thanks for your review. Our wi-fi for web surfing and emails is fine for our guests and is always available, but downloading mega files for your business is slow. The cell phone service is 1-3 bars depending on if you're inside or outside the cottage. We are so happy you enjoyed our property and hope to see you again soon on Maui.
