Summary

Down to earth and set in the authentic Hawaii you knew existed, but had no idea how to find. If you’re looking for an affordable, non-touristy private home, you just found it.

Exceptionally private and clean, the high quality furnishings, linens and kitchen appliances are kept in like-new condition.

The cottage has loads of windows overlooking tropical plants, a heavily producing yummy Avocado tree is next to the kitchen window, coconut, breadfruit, hibiscus and heliconia are also plentiful.

Bedrooms & Bedding

You may be asking yourself, “is it a two-bedroom or a studio?” Originally built as an open studio cottage with a large enclosed lanai, the lanai has just recently been remodeled into a second bedroom.

This is an open floorplan with the master bedroom connected to the main living area. The second bedroom can be closed off from the rest of the house affording privacy to couples traveling together, or especially useful to families who would like to put the kids to sleep early without ending the night for themselves.

Both bedrooms have high-quality queen beds. The Master bed is a Sealy Posturepedic pillowtop. The lanai bedroom has a Simmons Beautyrest pillowtop.

(For spare kids you may have hanging around, there is also a mini-twin futon, a pack-and-play – and oh, and the two sofas are kid sized!)

Dining Area

The pub-style dining table sits in a pocket of windows – a perfect spot to share breakfast to the sounds of songbirds in the morning.

Kitchen

The full kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal, snacks or drinks. High quality Hawaiian-style ceramic dishes, assorted glassware, pots & pans, silverware, etc is all high quality and new. A new blender, microwave, toaster oven and coffee maker are among the small appliances. Everything is solid quality and full-sized, not like what you expect in typical vacation condos and hotels.

There is also a reverse osmosis water filter installed at the sink to filter the rainwater supplied tap for clean drinking water.

Bathroom & Shower

The bathroom is simple yet functional. When you’re in here looking for the shower, you’ll find none – but open the door and a path leads out to an awesome outdoor bamboo shower with what we call a “hillbilly hotub” next to the shower, it is a 4? round ~200 gal. soaking tub (larger and much deeper than a standard bath tub.) What a treat!

Warning: After you shower here you’ll never want to shower inside again.

Location

Waipio Bay is a couple miles into the unofficial start of the famous Road to Hana, at the edge of the rainforest. Since Maui is small, and the resort areas are not centrally located, this private and “remote” area is ironically quite central for active people looking to experience the huge variety Maui has to offer.

This location is also a great choice for those who want privacy, serenity and a peaceful place to recharge since it is off the beaten tourist path, and at the end of a private road.

About the Owner

I'm an author and live in another home on the property. I discovered Maui was my soul's long-lost home in the 90's and whenever we came back home to visit, we found this area to be the best home base for our adventures around the island. When we moved to Maui in 2004, we spent three years searching for the perfect place, renting and moving five times to feel out different areas before we found the perfect location in 2007. We have had hundreds of thrilled visitors over these years, and hope to add you as one too!

Great, Affordable East Maui "jungle" property

Great, Affordable East Maui "jungle" property
  • 5 of 5
We wanted a non-resort Maui stay and we certainly got that with this property. We had a great three night stay mid-July 2014. We found the property to be essentially as described although the property is starting to show its age, primarily on the exterior (being surrounded by nature in a rain forest will do that to a house). The warning given about the outdoor shower is accurate. There isn't anything like an outdoor shower in the jungle rain forest and the hillbilly hot tub was fun to use after a long day playing tourist. We'd stay again just for the outdoor shower facilities! The property is very private and the location is great - Paia Town is close by in case you want civilization or a dinner out and Mana foods is the place to stop for supplies - what a great store. If you are planning a drive to Hana it is nice to be located at the start of the drive so you can head out early to beat the crowds (stop at Pranee's Thai "restaurant" for lunch in Hana! = Fantastic). But do remember to bring along bug spray - being essentially in the jungle does = bug bites. I will recommend this property to others.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your kind feedback :) We have been noticing the outside needs some sprucing up as well. We just put an entirely new railing and supports on the steps and power washed the entire exterior of the home and it looks great! We're always keeping the small maintenance items up too - so thank you for sharing your feedback :) Aloha, and we hope to have you again soon!

A fabulous cottage in the jungle!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 9 nights and really enjoyed the jungle experience. The cottage was very clean, comfortable and the outdoor shower was a bonus. It was an adventure to get to the first night! The lovely town of Paia is a 10 minute drive away and the best beach we went to on Maui was only 15 minutes away. Definately great for families with young children who would love the gecko's, large yard and creatures. The jungle experience is not for everyone though as it was really humid when we were there and the mosquito's were fierce.

Location

From the Owner

The location is perfect for our active family of six. We can walk out our door and be swimming in waterfall pools or hiking jungle in minutes. We can drive to a dozen beautiful uncrowded beaches in 15-20 minutes. All the rest of this spectacularly perfect island is an easy reach.

Since Maui is small, and the resort areas are not centrally located, this private and “remote” area is ironically quite central for active people looking to experience the huge variety Maui has to offer.

Twin Falls is practically our neighbour.

The Bamboo Forest is just 4 miles away.

We're close to Pa'ia, and Makawao.

The Road to Hana begins here.

Closer + avoid traffic bottlenecks to Kula, Ulapalakua and Haleakala Park vs. staying in resort areas.

About the same drive-time to Iao Valley and Kahului as the resorts are.

About twenty minutes more to drive to either resort area vs. staying in one and driving to explore the other (and you should explore it all!)

Drives on this side of Maui are incredibly beautiful, enjoyable and scenic, making day-tripping all over the island an absolute pleasure and a must-do!

To find out if the North Shore is for you, Google 'should I stay on the north shore maui' to see a great article that the system won't let us put a direct link to in here :)

Having this location as our home base has been perfect for our busy family because it allows us to experience living in the serenity of the true, natural Hawaii while still being within easy reach of everything the island has to offer.
