Interaction with Guests
Host will greet you upon arrival, give you a brief orientation of the cottage and surrounding area and will come say aloha on departure day. The rest of the time you will have to yourself unless you schedule a tour.
Maliko Retreat is 3 minutes from the historic town of Makawao with great restaurants, shops and galleries.
8 to 10 minutes from the surfing town of Paia, with more great restaurants, shops, galleries and great beaches. Also the location of Mana Foods, a wonderful gourmet/organic food store.
4 minutes away from Haiku Town with restaurants and a great workout gym.
Haleakala is a 35 minute drive to the summit, but it will take you longer, pulling over to take photos of all the great scenic views along the way.
Ulupalakua is 35 to 40 minutes away, but it will also take you longer than that to get there as you stop to take photos and just to breath it all in.
Hana is a 2 hour drive, same thing, lots of stopping to smell the wild ginger and photograph the waterfalls along the way. It's not to be missed though. The largest archeological site in all of Polynesia is located near Hana. You could easily be the only people in the park to view this incredible, powerful place, stepped pyramid and all. And the drive is an attraction in itself.
You will definitely need a car. You won't need a four-wheel drive though. The roads are fine.

My favorite thing is sharing this beautiful valley with others. It started out 30 years ago as a refuse dump. For 150 years everyone dumped their garbage into the fresh-water stream from the lovely old stone bridge. My husband and I bought the property below the bridge along with the stream and all the garbage in it. For five years we hauled trash consisting of everything from old Model T Ford car frames to bags of dirty disposable diapers. The water was red, foamy and smelled terrible. But we finally got it clean and it's a beautiful stream with waterfalls, springs, caves and wildlife.
I love to build things out of found objects and re-purpose and re-use things meant for the dump. We live on a small island and need to be more sustainable. It's a lot easier to just buy what you need at Home Depot or Lowe's but it's a lot more satisfying to give something a new life with ingenuity and hard work.
I love coffee. I love growing it and I love drinking it. Also, coffee growers are a wonderful group of people. Our coffee growing community here on Maui and in Hawaii are like family. I also work as an advocate for small farmers here in Maui County.
