vacation rental description

Summary

Private and clean; green and off-the-grid 200 sq-ft cottage adjacent to jungle, natural pools, waterfalls and all the North Shore goodness. Just 30 minutes from the airport, and 15-20 from Paia Town, Haiku, Makawao and a dozen great uncrowded North Shore beaches. Earthy, peaceful and private; perfect for couples and a solid value.

The Studio cottage is a 200 sq-ft one room cottage with a queen bed, table, kitchentte, small deck, and private yard with outdoor space. It is a perfect accommodation for active people who plan on day-tripping around our beautiful island and want a serene natural place to make home-base for their adventures.

Details

About five minutes down a narrow, windy, bumpily paved jungle road (any car can navigate it.) The area is largely undeveloped, but it is also not an isolated grass hut in the backcountry jungle!

This kind of lodging is perfect for nature lovers. While there is a ton of diversity in flora and fauna, the land is not heavily landscaped and this is the jungle – so stuff grows like…well…a jungle! (If things like the lawn getting tall between cuttings is something that horrifies you, well, we can show you loads of more tamed and manicured places!)

The cottage is environmentally designed with solar power, rainwater catchment & green/repurposed construction. The house was also designed and positioned to catch tradewinds and natural light perfectly. The private outdoor jungle shower is a guest favorite that we continually hear rave reviews about when we follow up with guests.

Tap water comes from rainwater catchment. This is a giant tank of rain water. It is crystal clear and regularly treated to sanitary specifications, so washing dishes, toothbrushing, etc. are all fine – though drinking it may be reserved for more adventurous folks! (Guests are provided with a large pitcher of filtered drinking water to start off at checkin.)

The quality bath towels, linens, comforter and pillows are replaced very frequently to be keep in new condition. There is also wireless internet, wireless VoIP telephone and a CD player w/iPod Dock & small selection of excellent Hawaiian music provided.

Kitchenette

The kitchenette has a solid granite countertop and is equipped with a simple two-burner propane camping stove. Propane is provided. The kitchenette is also fully stocked with quality dishes, glassware, tableware, pots, pans, microwave, toaster-oven, coffee maker and fridge.

Property

There is a main house on the property, and the Studio Cottage is tucked away in its own private corner. Solo travelers will appreciate that the main house and friendly neighbors live on adjacent properties – so other people are close enough that you won’t feel isolated. Residents in the main house are very conscious of guests and while you may see children playing, or otherwise be aware of the family presence, no one will intrude upon your personal space.

The cottage overlooks tropical plants, coconut, pineapple, ginger, hibiscus and heliconia are plentiful.

Bathroom & Hot Shower

The bathroom is simple yet functional with just a standard toilet. The sink is in the kitchenette. A stepping-stone path leads behind the cottage to an outdoor bamboo shower (yes, it has hot water!) nestled among mango, awapuhi ginger, heliconia, ‘ape (elephant ear) and ferns. We hear from guests regularly that just love this shower, and we’re sorry to tell you that after you shower here, you’ll probably never look at showering inside the same again :)

Location

Very close to Twin Falls, 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.

The Jungle Studio Cottage is a great choice for those who want privacy, serenity and a peaceful off the beaten tourist path place to base their adventures around Maui.

**BEACHES**

These are our favorite of the uncrowded, non-touristy North Shore beaches. Once you've been to these miles of serene uncrowded beaches, going to hotel beaches seems silly :)

- Baby Beach

Great for kids, lap swimmers and beachcombers. Also very scenic.

- Ho’okipa Beach Park

You can watch some of the best windsurfers in the world here. Also has very regular surf breaks.

- Baldwin Cove

Calm cove, great for escaping the wind when the sand is blowing!

- Baldwin Beach Park

A long, sandy beach with plenty of parking, lifeguards and facilities.

- Tavares Beach

Popular with locals. Good surf break, too.

- Kuau Cove aka Beach at Mama’s Fish House

A small tide pool beach. Kids love exploring here.

- Paia Bay

Great for advanced boogie boarders. Also has a good surf break.

- Paia Secret Beach

Secluded and clothing optional.

- Jaws

In the winter you can watch big-wave surfers defy sanity!

Perfect gateway - Jungle retreat

Review submitted: March 7, 2014   Date of arrival: February 18, 2014

A true Maui experience

Review submitted: March 5, 2014   Date of arrival: February 20, 2014

Lilikoi jungle cottage is off the beaten path surrounded by tropical jungle, not a sound is heard throughout the night, peaceful yet not lonely, nestled in under a blanket of stars. Waking up to the sound of birds and the intoxicating aroma of fresh grass and thick foliage was an amazing treat. It's a fantastic retreat and very romantic.
Lilikoi jungle cottage is just what it says it is, a sweet quaint cottage with all the basic amenities. I recommend this place for all who want what I call a real Maui experience, and sink into the natural beauty of the island.
The small porch was an excellent place for a morning beverage while observing the bountiful bird life, and the deck served nicely as a place for morning yoga. Staying at Lilikoi provided a great way to experience the real beautiful Maui - beauty, peace, exotic, inviting and romantic. Far from noise and mass tourism, yet close enough to everything.
I felt so recharged after a week here. The cottage is 5 minutes away from the famous road to Hana, and close to the town of Paia. The listing description was accurate and the cottage was exactly like in the photos. The outdoor shower was very private and just wonderful! The owners were friendly and very helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a true Maui experience! I would also recommend a stroll through the neighborhood as well as driving 15 minutes to Paia, to enjoy the extra long happy hour at Milagro's, and swimming at Baldwin beach (maybe not in that order!). The cottage is near multiple water falls.
I will go back!

Cottage Adventure

Review submitted: February 20, 2014   Date of arrival: February 12, 2014

Our arrival to the cute small cottage was a pleasant surprise with welcoming Hawaiian music to set the mood of paradise. Our short stay here was enjoyable, quiet and with the sounds of nature -just what we love. A perfect place for couples to getaway for some quiet time with each other with a little adventure just outside the door. We absolutely love the easy hike down to the ocean platform.
