Down to earth and set in the authentic Hawaii you knew existed, but had no idea how to find. If you’re looking for an affordable, non-touristy private home, you just found it.

Exceptionally private and clean, the high quality furnishings, linens and kitchen appliances are kept in like-new condition.

The cottage has loads of windows overlooking tropical plants, a heavily producing yummy Avocado tree is next to the kitchen window, coconut, breadfruit, hibiscus and heliconia are also plentiful.

Bedrooms & Bedding
You may be asking yourself, “is it a two-bedroom or a studio?” Originally built as an open studio cottage with a large enclosed lanai, the lanai has just recently been remodeled into a second bedroom.

This is an open floorplan with the master bedroom connected to the main living area. The second bedroom can be closed off from the rest of the house affording privacy to couples traveling together, or especially useful to families who would like to put the kids to sleep early without ending the night for themselves.

Both bedrooms have high-quality queen beds. The Master bed is a Sealy Posturepedic pillowtop. The lanai bedroom has a Simmons Beautyrest pillowtop.

(For spare kids you may have hanging around, there is also a mini-twin futon, a pack-and-play – and oh, and the two sofas are kid sized!)

Dining Area
The pub-style dining table sits in a pocket of windows – a perfect spot to share breakfast to the sounds of songbirds in the morning.

The full kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal, snacks or drinks. High quality Hawaiian-style ceramic dishes, assorted glassware, pots & pans, silverware, etc is all high quality and new. A new blender, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker are among the small appliances. Everything is solid quality and full-sized, not like what you expect in typical vacation condos and hotels.

There is also a reverse osmosis water filter installed at the sink to filter the rainwater supplied tap for clean drinking water.

Bathroom & Shower
The bathroom is simple yet functional. When you’re in here looking for the shower, you’ll find none – but open the door and a path leads out to an awesome outdoor bamboo shower with what we call a “hillbilly hotub” next to the shower, it is a 4′ round ~200 gal. soaking tub (larger and much deeper than a standard bath tub.) What a treat!

Warning: After you shower here you’ll never want to shower inside again.

Waipio Bay is a couple miles into the unofficial start of the famous Road to Hana, at the edge of the rainforest. Since Maui is small, and the resort areas are not centrally located, this private and “remote” area is ironically quite central for active people looking to experience the huge variety Maui has to offer.

This location is also a great choice for those who want privacy, serenity and a peaceful place to recharge since it is off the beaten tourist path, and at the end of a private road.

    As we drove down the road, the ooohs and wows began.

    It was more than we expected in every way; more remote, more peaceful and more fun than we could have imagined.

    he girls ran through the jungle in the buff on lizard explorations and were in a combination of awe and curiosity about the cool spiders & bugs. The adults loved the serene peacefulness of the beautiful jungle and lovely home.

    As we ventured out to other parts of the island we all agreed unanimously that we loved our little new found piece of heaven best of all!

    Thank you so much for the memories!

    I hate to leave this house. I love listening to the birds in the morning and the sudden storms at night. The Avocados off the tree outside are like butter. Napping in the porch while reading was perfect. And nothing beats showering outside while the rain falls too! The falls are one of the best laces I’ve ever been and I love all the helpful people at the variety store. This was a great place to retreat and write! I hated to leave!

    We stayed here for 2 1/2 weeks and loved it! Our four boys (4 yrs. and under) were amazed by all the wildlife so different from our Alaska home. Just at the cottage we found a lizard, a huge snail, a mammoth slug, nightly bull frogs and numerous geckos!

    The remoteness of the house was a sweet retreat from the festive tourism. It was so remote in fact, that we half thought we may have been swindled our first night as we drove down the overgrown “boondocks” road to what we hoped was what we had seen advertised online as a beautiful getaway. :)

    Whew! Just as advertised, waiting amid the jungle foliage.

    Thank you for such a great adventure for our vacation to Maui.

    My daughter and I found the peace and quiet to be healing – the little house & ambiance so beautiful. Colours of everything from sheets, towels, dishes to blend so beautifully with the landscape.

    We plan to return when we can stay for a much longer time. I will bring my brushes and watercolor paints and relax in this heavenly space.

    Outdoor shower was worth price of admission alone. I will probably never forget the experience of watching birds and butterflies flit past as I washed my hair….sublime. Screen porch worked great for the boys. We started our Maui week in a Keihi condo and this cottage was the perfect antidote. No parking lot noises, no car alarms, no highway, no upstairs neighbors flushing toilet at 3am…just nothing. Quiet, peace and crickets (I think) and windows open all night. We slept like babies. Was great to already be on Hana Road, we could take our time, take the side roads, relax, change plans, etc. Bring some games and movies for evenings in, also plan on mosquitoes. Outdoor fire pit might be nice addition. Loved it, thank you.
