Where you’ll be

Haiku-Pauwela, Hawaii, United States

Our home is conveniently located in a quiet family neighborhood with a 2 minute walk to the best local coffee cafe in Haiku town, Baked on Maui in the Pauwela Cannery. There is also a small health food store, hardware store, windsurf and surf shops etc... You are welcome to walk out the back gate of the property for a quick shortcut to the cannery.

We do not have any animals on the property however our neighborhood is filled with country style homes with open land. Which means at certain times of year (springtime/summer usually) we may have roosters crowing in the morning as they are wild in Maui, cats roaming the streets (also wild), mama chicken and her babies passing thru the garden, geckos gheckoing, tropical birds chirping or dogs barking on occasion. And since we live in a neighborhood you may also hear kids playing and neighbors having BBQ's just like you may hear at home! Just remember, this is real life, not a hotel.

Our guests choose our property because they want to enjoy Maui not as a tourist in a hotel but as a Maui local in a neighborhood. If this is the experience you are looking for then we think our home will be your perfect home away from home.

Haiku is located on the north side of Maui with perfect island weather of about 80 degrees year round. We get cooler nights, often with rain which keeps our surroundings green and lush and days kissed by the sun and trade winds. The airport is only 20 minutes away, but you will feel like you are miles from the hustle and bustle of it all.

Around Haiku are countless activities and natural resources to explore, such as shopping, hiking, surfing, waterfalls, beaches, zip lining, and horseback riding. Haiku is a balanced mix of locals and travelers. In town you have access to a variety of great restaurants, a grocery store, the Maui Kombucha bar, a post office, medical doctor, massage and acupuncture clinic, chiropractic studio, spa and yoga studio, hardware store, and a local gas station run by Mr Ching who pumps your gas for you. The famous Hookipa Beach Park is only 5 mile drive away where the local surfers and windsurfers go for the best north shore waves or to view the sea turtles as they nest in the sand in the early evening. The towns of Paia and Makawao are located 8 mile drive away where you can find some of our favorite shops and restaurants.

We are a family of 5, which includes 3 wonderful boys ages 14, 16, 18. Amy is the owner of Amy Varain Weddings, a wedding planning co in HI, CA & destination weddings. Joel is the owner of Deep Relief CBD and we both love rehabbing real estate to bring it to life in our spare time. We are lucky to have businesses that allow us flexible schedules to support our travel bug as well! When we travel, we are responsible and respectful homeowners that treat others and their homes like we would our own. Amy has a passion for being creative and building everything. You will see the creativity in our Maui homes as most things have been handmade from the littlest details to the furniture you sit on, and we keep improving the property regularly! We love hosting guests in our homes from around the globe and offering a unique experience to enjoy Maui as a local resident on our non-touristy North shore. Our Haiku Surf Property has a cottage and a house that we rent out separately or together for larger groups. Our Haiku Surf Property is at the end of a quiet residential neighborhood. We love our homes because of the location on island. Just 25 minutes from the airport, we are far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas yet we can drive anywhere on island in less than 2 hours making it a great central location. We can also walk to a coffee shop, organic grocery & hardware store out our back gate and Hookipa Beach is only a 10 mins drive away. For adventures we travel the road to Hana or visit Haleakala. There is also Ziplining, horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking the forest or waterfalls in our area as well. And don't forget to wander through the small towns of Paia or Makawao to window shop or eat at a local restaurant, we have many favorites! We also have the perfect temperatures as we live right on the edge of the rainforest. So we get rain filled nights and sun kissed days with light tradewinds almost everyday keeping the temperature at a perfect 75-80 degrees year round with comfortable nights between 65-70 degrees. For the few warmer days, we have ceiling fans in our homes and each home has great air flow throughout. The rain keeps our landscaped yards beautiful and if your lucky you will see a rainbow during your visit! We love our little piece of paradise and think you will too! Our family has a passion for life, our family motto: "Live life with Aloha!" & "Enjoy every day to the utmost fullest."
