PRISTINE, DIVERSE BEAUTY AND SERENITY
Enjoy the beautiful, lush, topical gardens surrounding the cottage. . . a myriad of fragrant,
colorful, tropical flowers and hanging vines. A true tropical oasis!
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.

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. 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.
