Maui is an island destination for Kiteboarders from around the world.  When traveling to Maui many travelers prefer the country life in Haiku Maui. Our Haiku Maui vacation rental is just the kind of place that offers the island getaway. Pineapple Cottage in Haiku Maui has been a hit with our guest since we first check in our first guest Christmas 2015.

 

Our last guest that just check out from Santa Barbara, was saying how they love our drive way. It looks like a giant tunnel into the secret garden. They also mention how they loved mornings on the deck for breakfast. They loved the birds singing and gentle breeze blowing through the gulch.

Haiku is a very special place to many people that call it home, and to the traveler looking for a lifestyle experience other than condos or hotel has to offer. Many people staying at Pineapple Cottage find it to be an easy hour and half drive to Hana for the day. A drive up country to Makawao Town is just 10 minutes away.  Make sure you try Kokoda’s famous donuts, or visit Polis Mexican Restaurant, food is excellent and they always have videos of Jaws, or windsurfing on Maui’s Northshore. In fact, the owner Tim is always down at Kanaha windsurfing in the afternoon.

Couple of our guest were raving about my wife’s banana bread.  I would have to say everyone agrees that the Pineapple Cottage is a luxurious island getaway.  My wife is a detailed person, making sure every little detail is perfect for our guest. This time of year our trees are going off, and there is nothing better than fresh squeezed orange juice.  You can pick your own oranges.  I been working on my garden, there is nothing better than fresh greens from the garden, so if your lucky there just might be a crop ready to pick.

So that’s life on our little oasis in Haiku.  Our next endeavor is adding bananas and  papayas around the cottage to make it more of a eco-experience.  Some reaction we been getting from our guest is how nice it is to be away from condos and actually living in the tropical side of the island.  Most of our guest are off and running exploring the island from Hana to Makena.  Haiku is a nice quiet location on Maui’s northshore.  We have great restaurants  in Haiku, and people are loving spending time in Paia Town.

Pineapple Cottage Beginning

Well this is my first Pineapple Cottage blog on our Haiku Vacation rental.

It has been a random journey in 2015 seeing our vacation rental come into focus.  During the middle of 2015 someone suggested about our cottage as a B&B.  It was like a light went on in my head. So the process began.  My wife Ivy and I started the paper work applying for permits.  It was also time to remodel our 12 year old cottage.  So the work began in good faith that we were going to get our permits.  It took four and half months to remodel, working 24/7 on our cottage.

This is my wife  Ivy and I, she is one of the hardest working girls I know.  She can work just as hard as I can, sometimes she is carrying the ball over the goal line.  It was a total remodel, I wasn’t up for gutting the bathroom, but my good friend Roger from Switzerland was helping me and just charged the bathroom with a sludge hammer. On the ladder is his wife Sandra who was a big help also, love these guys. They are currently in Western Australia windsurfing.

The middle of December we received our permits from the county.  Two days before Christmas we were officially finished. We walk out the door as our first quest from Switzerland check in.  Our first guest love our place, that it was private and quiet.  The also loved all the upgrades, everything was brand new.
