Also please do not feed/give water or let any wild animals (cats, chickens, etc.) in our houses that may pass thru the property during your stay. This is a shared home and property with our family. Our son has severe allergies to all animal dander. He has been hospitalized due to asthma and his severe animal dander allergies. We have never had any animals in our homes and cannot due to the health and safety of our son. We must keep our homes as an animal free environment, no exceptions.

SMOKE FREE HOME & PROPERTY: This is a smoke-free home and property. Please do not smoke in our home, outside our homes or anywhere on our property. Our family has allergies to smoke and we also have other guests on the property that may have allergies to smoke as well, which is why they chose to stay at our property. No Exceptions.
NO LAUNDRY ACCESS: The house does not have laundry access for guests. However the locked outdoor laundry area may be accessed by our cleaners/property owners during your stay for cleaning turnovers between the hours of 11am-4pm.
NO AC AVAILABLE: Maui is a tropical island which means our weather is more humid than other areas in the world. When you first arrive on island it may take a few days to acclimated to our environment. (80 degrees may feel like 85+ degrees) Our home is on the north shore of Maui which is usually 5-10 degrees cooler than the other sides of the island. We also have great tradewinds most days to keep the temperatures just right (70deg F at night and 80 deg F during the day) Our north shore homes are not known to have AC units, as it is usually not needed in our area. We do experience a few warmer weeks in the summer months, but it is not often enough for the expense of installing and maintaining AC in our homes. For the average traveler, our home's temperatures are usually just fine. Again, most locals live without AC on our side of the island. HOWEVER, if you are someone that AC is important to you and that you like a cooler environment, then our home will not be a good fit for you. We recommend that you find another home that can accommodate your needs.
Guests are renting the entire Haiku Surf House for their stay. And have use of 2 private house parking spots and a private yard. Laundry on-site is accessed & used by Cleaners Only. No Laundry available on-site for guests.

There is also a small health food store, Pauwela Store with a variety of grocery amenities, hardware store, windsurf and surf shops etc... You are welcome to walk out the back gate of the property for a quick shortcut to the cannery.
NORTH SHORE OF HAIKU: Haiku is located on the north side of Maui with perfect island weather of about 80 degrees year-round. We get cooler nights, often with rain which keeps our surroundings green and lush and days kissed by the sun and trade winds.
