Romantic hideaway! This property has the lush beauty and privacy of Hana, without the drive! Only 15-20 minutes to the airport, 10 minutes to beaches, 2 minutes to restaurants and shops...on a private gated property with organic nursery. BEAUTIFUL!

The space
This place is a gem! SO CUTE! A remodeled 1930's cottage....that Jimi Hendrix stayed in when he was on Maui in 1970 to film Rainbow Bridge. Beautiful, quiet...REAL Maui! Recently remodeled, very cute! It is lined with cedar on the inside so it smells delightful when you walk in....

The Gingerbread House is a studio cottage with a kitchenette (toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, counter-top burners, full sized fridge) and spacious bathroom with a large custom-built, tiled shower.. It has high cathedral ceilings with a huge window that looks out on beautiful lush greenery. It is on a gated property.
There wireless Internet in the cottage, as well as wireless available to you in several other locations on the property. We have gotten the internet FIXED since the reviews were written so it is WORKING WELL IN THE GINGERBREAD HOUSE! As of 2018, we also added a Television with Netflix access and put in a larger hot water heater, so you should have ample hot water.

It has a queen sized bed, and an outdoor patio under the spectacular tree canopy. The property is on 4.5 acres of lush beauty with a seasonal stream, an organic veggie start farm, fruit trees galore (help yourself when in season....) papaya, banana, lilikoi (passion fruit), coffee, plantains, oranges, mac nuts, avocado, lychee, mango, guava, grapefruit, tangerines, lemons, coconuts, noni....and you also have access to an additional 4 acres on the adjacent property—which is home of The Sacred Garden—beautiful!.

We have a 3 night minimum however we will book for 1-2 nights if the nights are available between other bookings so feel free to check with us. We have a 5 night minimum during Holiday periods like Christmas.

We are in an awesome location just 20 minutes from the airport and Costco, and only 2 miles to Makawao town restaurants and shops, 7 minutes to Paia, 5 minutes to Haiku town. 50 Minutes to Haleakala National Park entrance.

We also have a house on the property that is a vacation rental as well so if you need more space for a larger gathering let me know!

I offer retreat services—relationship coaching, personal and spiritual growth, guided labyrinth walks and work with Maui's best practitioners so if you want more than a vacation, let me know! We can help you with everything from Massage, to intuitive readings! I also perform weddings so if you are thinking of getting married while you are on Maui....I can also help you with that! This rental is on the property adjacent to The Sacred Garden which has two walking labyrinths, water lily ponds, meditation gardens, and more ...and is free and open to the public daily.

The elevation is about 1000 feet which is PERFECT on Maui! We are about 10 degrees cooler than sea level which makes for absolutely comfortable days (70-80 degrees) and GREAT temps for sleeping (usually in the 60's). This is the MAXIMUM elevation you can stay and still go scuba diving on Maui. Speaking of diving...we are avid divers and can assist you booking Scuba Diving with the best dive operation on Maui.

You will definitely want a rental car....there is a bus stop a mile or two away but not ideal....and bikes are a little hazardous as these are hilly, windy, narrow roads.

We have a loving and enthusiastic Golden Retriever and a few cats on the property but no animals are inside the cottage. There are wild chickens and roosters and cows on the property across the stream. Please keep in mind that this is a jungle environment. We have the houses treated for pests quarterly so you should have minimal issues with insects, however, If you are phobic of insects, the jungle will not be your best bet. Gecko lizards are also common inside the houses here.

COVID CLEANING: We have enhanced our already great cleaning procedures to include fogging the units with an organic Anti-Viral though out the rental at the time of check out. This ensures that all surfaces get disinfected (even before we do our deep cleaning) and any viral matter in the air will also be removed. The product is Petra ULV500 (Hypochlorous Acid (HOCl). Your safety and health —and that of our cleaners— is our highest priority.

Guest access
You have access to the adorable cottage, wireless internet, BBQ, Washer and dryer, and the full 8.5 acres of two adjacent lots that includes The Sacred Garden... We have off road parking on a gated property. Some of our seasonal fruit you are welcome to help yourself to, some we harvest for sale....we are happy to show you which is okay to pick—and how to know when it is ready!

Other things to note
We have an extremely friendly dog (Golden Retriever) named Kumu on the property....you will love her!

Makawao, Hawaii, United States

This area is a magical well kept secret on Maui. We are located at the dividing line between the wet side and the dry side, which means we get enough rain to stay green, and enough sun to stay sane! We get rainbows almost daily and are the perfect temperature (60's at night, 70's-80's in the day).
