Nestled in a corner of our lush tropical garden, Haleakala Cottage is the perfect place to call your temporary 'home' while you're in Maui - so you can really experience 'living' here, rather than just 'visiting.' Live like a local - it's fun!
A sweet little studio cottage, fully permitted. Please note, this is a 'studio' so the bedroom is not separate.
We're set amidst a stunning tropical garden of a 2 acre all-organic (green! sustainable!) estate in Huelo, on Maui's unspoiled North Shore. Cal King bed, full kitchen, 3 lanais, fabulous "outdoor" hot & cold shower under the stars, gas barbecue, use of swimming pool (shared) and your own private hot tub. Gather herbs from our garden ... and we offer bananas and fresh eggs in season.
This little cottage is a perfect "home" for you on vacation - not a sterile hotel room. We live on property, so will be very happy to answer questions about the island etc. Something very different from the usual "tourist" experience! But please note: WE HAVE NO TV RECEPTION (but we leave a dozen cool DVD's for you and there's a great little video store 15 mins down the road). Our internet service isn't suitable for streaming, but more than adequate for e mails. Cell service can be spotty, but we provide a landline for your exclusive use in your cottage and all on-island phone calls are free.
Also please note: we do NOT do daily maid service, though it can be arranged at extra charge. You are always welcome to exchange towels in our guest laundry though.
Some days, you'll probably simply choose to stay "at home" - all the facilities to do that are right here, including a beautiful 44 ft free-form swimming pool and, of course, our gorgeous, landscaped organic gardens. Save money - cook "in" - and enjoy the romance of having your own private Haiku retreat on Maui's wild north shore. We're away from tourist crowds, but close enough to town to find a fabulous restaurant if you don't feel like cooking. Great little local style 'boutiques'; local artistans & jewelers; great local, fresh cuisine. Once you've discovered our side of the island, you won't want to leave.
We provide super quality filtered drinking water and full laundry facilities - all linens provided - and some welcome goodies for you upon arrival.
WE LOVE LAST MINUTE TRAVELERS!!!
Your hosts, Jeff and Sharyn, are very accessible (love that texting!)
Guests have our private cell #s if there are any questions/ concerns and we're good about returning messages! We love texts!
Interaction with guests
We interact with guests as much as, or as little as, guests want. We always take our cue from guests! Texting makes life easy, so neither of us have to worry about waking someone up etc ... some 21st century techie stuff is good!
Other things to note
We're fully licensed and permitted and would recommend that you ONLY stay in 'legal' vacation rentals and B&Bs. (Unpermitted establishments are subject to County enforcement action and your booking may not be honored! So do be careful, ok?)
Kindly note that our prices do NOT include the 13.42% taxes - and we'll bill you for those separately on arrival. As I said, we are LEGAL. (Please be sure to ask any potential hosts if they are licensed. Maui County is enforcing against illegal rentals at the moment and we've heard from several guests who have lost their accommodations at the last minute).
Again, please note: WE HAVE NO TV RECEPTION (but we leave a dozen cool DVD's for you and there's a great little video store 15 mins down the road). Our internet service isn't suitable for streaming, but more than adequate for e mails. Cell service can be spotty, but we provide a landline for your exclusive use in your cottage and all on-island phone calls are free.
We make the security and privacy of our guests a priority and as such request that only registered guests use our facilities. If you would like non-registered guests to visit you while you are here, please make arrangements in advance of your arrival. Mahalo.

We ask that you leave our space tidy when you depart - all dishes washed, trash and recycling emptied into the bins at the laundry, and all food waste in the compost bucket ready for the chickens. Excessively dirty places on checkout will be assessed an additional cleaning fee at our discretion. If you need maid service during your stay - do let us know - and we can provide that for a negotiable fee.
We're a quiet, hideaway romantic retreat on a private 2 acre estate - so we're for like-minded people who appreciate being away-from-it-all, immersed in nature ... and who will leave our place as beautiful as (or even more than!) they found it. The only other rule is: have fun, appreciate each other - and let Maui work its magic!

My husband Jeff, and I, have lived in Maui since we fell in love with it in 1992. We'd stayed in B&B's all through England and Wales, and thought "Why would anyone want to stay a hotel?" We love the personal touches and we love being able to give people a 'real' experience of Maui.
In my 'spare' time, I write poetry, short stories and scripts - and I also perform in live theatre and theatre improv. Maui is fun!
