My place is close to public transport, parks, the airport, and the city center. You’ll love my place because of the people, the outdoors space, the ambiance, the light, and the neighborhood. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).

Our stay in Kala was not enjoyable. The rental is not currently maintained to the advertised standard, and seemingly small details were quite frustrating - Inside: the couch is ratty, the whole place needs more thorough cleaning, screens were broken, curtain rods fall down, etc. Outside: the yard was not maintained, the deck and outside furniture was quite dirty. On arrival I spent a substantial amount of time cleaning so we could feel a bit more comfortable. A few items just need to be replaced. Mike is aware that his place isn't currently up to par and we found it frustrating that he rented it to us knowing its condition. The neighbors are quite noisy. Additionally there was construction next door, and Mike also had three loads of soil dumped in the back yard during our stay. Communication was lacking. With some minor effort Mike could have the place back in good condition but given our experience, and preference for quiet surroundings, we will not be returning.

There are a few pro's and con's to Mike's cottage... Pro's: - Great location in Haiku town (which is a good town to explore the island from). Walking distance to the main square, cafes and restaurants - On-site parking - Well equipped kitchen - Spacious cottage overall - Mike is a good host. Although we didn't meet personally, Mike made sure we had everything we needed prior to arrival. Con's: - Overall the cottage feels rundown and tired. It needs a bit of work. - Outside garden hasn't been maintained and it doesn't feel like a spot you want to hang out - Veranda door doesn't lock (we were worried about leaving valuables in the house) - Construction right next door starting at 7am, very noisy!

This place was fine but it was dirtier than we expected and although the location is very walkable the town is run down but does have a few restaurants, a grocery store and some food trucks. The overall geographical location is great though. This side of Maui is very fun green and wet.

Beware of the roosters! They were infinitely noisy and kept us from a restful vacation. Very clean, neat and spacious cottage. Easy in and out.

Great location in Ha'iku, walking distance to a bunch of shops and restaurants, and excellent for exploring Upcountry Maui, the North Shore, and/or the Road to Hana. Mike was super-responsive and helpful, and although the place is in "central" Ha'iku it feels very secluded. Nice kitchen, and beautiful pineapple-themed furniture. Note: there is no A/C or heating so be prepared for somewhat more humid/cool conditions typical for this part of the island.

The house in Haiku is absolutely heavenly. It is a well equipped house on a small private road in the heart of Haiku ( which is now my favorite town in Maui). The beds were incredibly comfortable with really nice linens; perfect place to lay your head after a long day of exploring. A huge plus for us was that there was a washer and dryer in the house, because we packed lite and did a lot of hiking. As a result it was great to have fresh clean clothes. Another plus is that the house is in walking distance from several great restaurants, a grocery store and local shopping. Overall, a perfect place to book for your next trip to Maui.

Super emplacement. Supermarché accessible à pied. Nombreux petits restaurant à côté. Proche de la route de Hana. Meilleur coin de l'île.

I have lived in Haiku for 15 Years and would never want to leave. I'm a carpenter by trade and have a wood shop here in Haiku. I surf, windsurf and stand up paddle, being in the ocean has been a priority for me since I moved here from Canada in 1997.
