We had a great time! House was clean and convenient to the national park and beaches. Highly recommend!
This home had ample parking (important for our 2 small work trucks), thoughtfully designed interior spaces with all that we needed to cook and prepare meals, and sleep comfortably with 3 people each in a separate room. Our host was easy to communicate with and left detailed information about the home and nearby amenities. The nearby bakery/breakfast place was also a stand-out and only a 3 minute walk from the cottage. We'll definitely plan to book here again in the near future! Thanks again to our hosts - this home is amazing!
We had a wonderful stay at the Surf House. The house was clean, organized and obviously well-maintained. We loved the location and appreciated the ease of communication with the property manager. Would love to come back and stay longer!
perfect getaway spot that had everything we needed! We especially appreciated all the local tips and guide to Maui.
Very clean and guests were so nice!
My sister and I brought our 69 year old mom to celebrate her birthday. We all didn’t want to leave from this lovely home. We felt secure, comfortable, and at peace. Communication was great when necessary. My sister and I are planning to return with our husbands soon !!!
It was very nice
This was a fantastic place to stay. Within minutes we could be on the road to Hana, which was our favorite of Maui. The house was perfect, and we appreciated the private outside shower to wash the sand off so we didn’t track anything inside.
Our host left little Hawaiin touches for us that was fun for us, especially our kids to have. Things like Hawaiin chips, Hawaiin made macadamias nut chocolates and a couple other items that was great to finally get to Hawaii after such a long plan flight and feel welcomed to Hawaii.
Our was amazing and very understanding when we communicated with her on a couple different items. We don’t have a single complaint or negative thing to say about our experience here.
The house had everything we needed, was clean and comfortable. The outdoor shower was my kids' favorite!
Amy’s place is just as described. Very clean and comfortable. We loved walking out the back gate to the coffee shop every morning. Loved the location close to Paia and Makawao. We’d stay here again!
Great place to stay for exploring north Maui. Very comfortable and cute 3 bedrooms. Clear communication from the owner. Loved having the market and cafe out the back gate. Great sushi restaurant in nearby Haiku and close to Paia with wonderful restaurants, beaches and boutiques.
Our family of 5 stayed here for two nights in between resorts in west Maui and Wailea. It was the perfect change of pace. You get enmeshed in a local community with a great cafe and restaurant nearby. Location is perfect to spend quality time in Paia and it’s right off the road to Hana—so you can deep dive into some of the sites, like twin falls. And the drive to Halakelea and upcountry is much easier here. The place is perfect and well stocked. The three bedrooms were perfect for our family. Only minor complaint is it get stuffy at night and the fans are all pretty weak. With the addition of some more powerful fans in the rooms this would be six stars!
Initially told, we could not check in until 4 pm. House cleaners finished early. The owner, Amy notified me and we were able to get in at 3pm. After spending 8 days in the hustle bustle of Kehei, this house was peaceful and quiet.
We would stay there again.
This location is a perfect mix of away from everything but close enough to everything. The house is adorable. Three bedrooms, one bath and an AMAZING outdoor shower. Baked on Maui is a two minute walk out the back door. A kid friendly beach is 10 minutes away and the Road to Hana is just down the street. My kids were 10 and 8 and we would stay here again.
We were a bit disappointed by location - didn’t have a holiday vibe as was literally in the middle of a suburb. Neighbourhood noises and not great privacy from other house and owners and visiting trade. House was thoughtfully equipped to make stay comfortable which is the biggest plus point. Fans need upgrading - fiddly to put on and main one in bedroom stopped working so it was uncomfortably muggy in a double bed. Laundry unavailable to guests. Just felt compared to other places we stayed at same price point we got much better location and standard.
Great location, walking distance to a few shops and bakery.
All went very well, I will recommend.
We wanted to get away from the more touristy areas of Maui, and this house was perfect, easy to feel like a local when you're here! Baked on Maui is steps from the back door. Very quiet neighbourhood, and close to Paia, which was a great town. The binder left out by the owners contains more information then I've EVER seen in a VRBO rental! So many suggestions, etc. This is a very well cared for property and the owners clearly care very much that their guests have a great stay. Thank you!
We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. We’ve stayed in many homes around the world, and this home was one of the cleanest, well thought out, organized home we’ve ever had the pleasure of staying in. Amy thought of everything! Thank you for making traveling with two littles much easier by your hospitality
We stayed here the last 2 nights of our Maui vacation. It was a great place to relax and check out nearby towns of Paia and Haiku. The home was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed.
Beautifully renovated property in a great location. Attentive hosts with an eye for detail. Overall excellent experience. Would highly recommend.
We enjoyed our stay at this clean and nicely organized house. It's got a nice vibe to it. There is a giant mango tree in the yard which is pretty cool! It drops mangos a lot, which can be startling , but it's part of the uniqueness of the place and Maui!
We had a great experience staying at this property. It is clean, comfortable, and in a great central location to get to many parts of the island. The host was responsive to messages and made our stay extra special. I would love to stay here again.
Really nice home. Very clean. Greatly enjoyed the short cut to the coffee shop/bakery. It felt like we were locals! No complaints. It was a fun vacation.
Lovely private relaxing cottage in Haiku, HI! Nice neighborhood with a store and coffee shop/ restaurant a short walk. Owner has done a great job with the set up, organization, instructions, guides and safety for this rental unit with many amenities. They even supplied a nice welcome basket of snacks.
This was a great spot to change up our Maui vacation after leaving the resorts. We were able to get to both Hana and Haleakala effortlessly. Paia was a cute little town. We had the best meal at Cafe des Amies. And sushi was fantastic at Nuka. House was perfect for our needs. We didn’t need the third bedroom and we’re bummed. It to shower outside due to weather. Would definitely stay here again and recommend. Wish we could stay longer. Mahalo.
Beautiful home, comfy bed, close to wonderful coffee house and sites to see in upcountry. Highly recommend the Maui Goat Yoga then a trip down to Maui winery.. make a reservation!
This is a great property. Very clean. Our host was very communitive. Their visitor guide was very helpful for planning. Great location for seeing Haleakala, surf beaches, road to Hana and local restaurants. I highly recommend this rental.
Great rental for a stay for a family of four. Great location, house was well decorated, well stocked and very clean. Would recommend.
This surf bungalow is beautiful & so clean! We were so happy to have a nice, safe spot near Haleakala & the road to Hana! The beds were super comfy and there was enough of everything we needed & more!
We highly recommend this home to anyone who wants privacy, safety, cleanliness, and space! We felt right at home here!
Thank you for a wonderful place Amy & Joel! The property is beautiful & the walk to breakfast “Baked Maui” was delicious!
We would definitely recommend & come back!

Amy was so easy to work with and responded quickly to our request. Her home was welcoming and the location was close to many Maui attractions. There was a guide for all the things to do in the area, as well as the history of the house itself. We are grateful for the beauty they could see in the place, which allowed us to enjoy our own little slice of paradise while we were there.
Thank you so much for a great stay in Haiku! The property was in great condition with so much helpful information and effort put into explanations and details. The location was excellent for me and everything about this lovely place shows the care and Aloha that the owners have put into it. Quiet and relaxing area and great communication with the owner were greatly appreciated! Mahalo!
This is my second stay on Maui and this home was just perfect. It was clean and well thought out. The outdoor shower is great for after the beach and just a calm, peaceful shower outdoors. The kitchen is very well stocked, the beds were so comfy, the laundry was a nice perk and the home was very cute. The outdoor area was great for relaxing and it was fun picking up the huge avocados that fell. We loved going out the back gate to Baked on Maui or the Pauwela General Store. Makawao is just 15 mins away. The summit of Haleakala is about 1 hr 15 mins and the home is just near the start of Road to Hana. Baby beach and hookipa beach were close and beautiful. It’s about an hour drive to Lahaina for parasailing or 45 mins to snorkeling. I would stay here again!
We loved our stay in this wonderful cottage in the lush green countryside located in a quiet part of Maui. The accommodations were clean and comfortable, filled with personal artistic touches by the owners. The owners communicated clearly and quickly, and even surprised us with a welcome basket of treats. We enjoyed fruit from the yard, including avocado and grapefruit. The location was central to many classic Maui activities, especially convenient for day trips to Hana and Haleakala. We highly recommend this property!
Cute property in Haiku, owners have done a good job renovating and decorating property. Location close to Paia and wonderful coffee shop in Haiku.
We arrived after dark so initially went to wrong house as owner has 2 houses on property, but figured it out with help
Home is a bit smaller than appeared in photos and one small bathroom with little ventilation was tight for our group of 5 adults but towels and toiletries provided were nice.
We are used to leaving the properties we rent clean, but also thought a couple items on the cleaning list for check out were particular (like all dishes must be clean and put away in cabinets-- most places it's put dishes in dishwasher and start) considering the cleaning fee.
All in all, the property was nice and we would stay there again.
We enjoyed all the cute touches. And appreciated that is was so clean.
Amy and Joel are amazing hosts. They communicated clearly and easily with us before our stay. The Surf House is in an excellent location minutes away from great restaurants and amazing attractions. The attention to detail was very apparent from the moment you enter the house. Little notes were left on all lights and appliances so you immediately used the home the way the owners do. It was truly an amazing stay and we look forward to booking this home again in the future.
The location, ambiance, and details were perfect for our family of 5. Maui was the last of our 3 islands to visit and we tried to avoid all the tourists. Having the space in Haiku with interaction with locals at the bakery and store were awesome. Amy had tons of things available to help us find some untourist experiences. My kids really appreciated the beach accessories and we all had to try an outdoor shower. The well equipped kitchen and games were also family favorites. We could’ve stayed a month. Great place to get away from the tourist commotion and connect as a family while still enjoying all the adventures on the east side of the island.
