Best place ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was everything we had hoped for! Location was perfect, close to the town of Paia, so it was easy to get foods and find restaurants and a good starting point if you want to drive to Hana (we did). The house was very clean and charming, the kitchen had everything we needed and our bed was really comfortable, the hosts were welcoming and gave us tips on place to visits, they were so helpful and made us feel at home. Everything around the house is so beautiful, tropical fruits trees and the view is breathtaking a true paradise. If we ever go back to Maui we would not hesitate to go back again.

All in all a great stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the whispering bamboo cottage. The location of the property is great if you are looking for a quite place to stay. It has great access to the Road to Hana, Haleakala, Paia, etc. We stayed in Lahaina before (5 years before this trip) and we enjoyed this location much more. The staff on the property were very nice and helpful. They have guest laundry facilities which was nice too. The place was well equipped overall. Our only criticism is the couch. It's old and should go. Besides that the place is very nice and I would recommend it to others (assuming the couch gets swapped out). The other thing I will mention is this property is in the forest (or at least close to the forest and sugar cane fields). Therefore get ready for the Geckos (which are a sign of good luck and are totally harmless). We did run into one centipede too (which is common). If you're up for a nice quite place, off the beaten path and up for a little adventure this is a great location.

Wonderful, off the beaten path, cottage with exceptional coastal views!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I arrived late tuesday night and turned in as soon as we arrived. We awoke in the morning to a spectacular view! It had just rained and the morning air was crisp and the view was astounding. I took a walk around the property and found it well kept and really quite tranquil and relaxing. During our stay we accomplished a lot on Maui. We drove the Hana Highway, snorkeled Molokini, visited several beaches in Wailea-Makena, watched the sunrise from Haleakala, the sunset at Hawea Point and it was just wonderful to come back to the cottage to unwind and relax. We even took a bath in the outdoor tub! Laying in the tub and looking up at the stars during a light misting rain as small clouds passed over... My gosh! That's just beyond words. My girlfriend and I are celebrating our fourth year together and we could not have chosen a better place to stay. Thanks you so much Anjali for calling me, you made our decision easy.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this adorable cottage in Haiku. This was our family's 3rd trip to Maui. My husband, daughter (age 6) & I are not resort people. We love to get off the beaten track and really explore all that Maui has to offer. This quiet cottage was a great place for us to call home during our last vacation. Easy access to Paia, Upcountry and the Hana Hwy. You would think that the threat of a hurricane coming our way may have put a damper on our vacation, but no way! Ken & Anjali were terrific hosts and made sure we had supplies (lantern, flashlights, extra food) just in case. The grounds were so beautiful and tranquil. We truly enjoyed the peace. The pool was perfect for those afternoons that we just wanted to relax and cool off. I'll always carry the memories of sitting on the lanai under the stars while our daughter slept peacefully in her own room. Truly breathtaking! We also try to live lightly on this earth, so I appreciated the recycling bins & compost pile on the property. We took so many delights in all the original artwork and statues in the cottage and around the property. Everyday was a new adventure. Thanks again Ken & Anjali for sharing this very special spot on Maui!

Stunning nature views, close to beaches & cafes

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four were very comfortable in this cottage full of original wall art, which really inspired the young ones. We appreciated the hypoallergenic surroundings as the owners do not use harsh chemicals or perfumes and the swimming pool is purified by salt. the lareg grounds full of organic stuff were a treat.

To get to Maui Ocean Breezes from the Kahului airport take the Hana Highway toward Paia and Hana. We are just less than 1 mile past mile marker 15. Look for the Holokai Road sign on the right side of the road. Turn left (toward the ocean) on North Holokai Road. We are on the right about 1/2 mile down the road. Look for the mailbox sitting on a stone pillar marked "240".

We are 15 miles from the Kahului Airport on the ocean side off the road to Hana. Close to famous wind surfing beaches, waterfalls, the surf town of Paia and the upcountry cowboy town of Makawao with their unique restaurants and boutiques. We are an awesome 35 mile drive from Haleakala volcano summit, 33 miles from Hana, 40 miles from Lahaina and 33 miles from Wailea/Makena.
