Romantic hideaway! This property has the lush beauty and privacy of Hana, without the drive! Only 15-20 minutes to the airport, 10 minutes to beaches, 2 minutes to restaurants and shops...on a private gated property with organic nursery. BEAUTIFUL!

The space

This place is a gem! SO CUTE! A recently remodeled 1930's cottage....that Jimi Hendrix stayed in when he was on Maui in 1970 to film Rainbow Bridge. Beautiful, quiet...REAL Maui! Recently remodeled, very cute! It is lined with cedar on the inside so it smells delightful when you walk in....

The Gingerbread House is a studio cottage with a kitchenette (toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, counter-top burners, full sized fridge) and spacious bathroom with a large custom-built, tiled shower.. It has high cathedral ceilings with a huge window that looks out on beautiful lush greenery. It is on a gated property.
There is wireless Internet in the cottage, but in the event it isn't working, there is wireless available to you in other locations on the property. We have gotten the internet FIXED since the reviews were written so it is WORKING IN THE GINGERBREAD HOUSE AGAIN! (as of 1/16/17)

It has a queen sized bed, as well as a day bed (can be used as a twin), and an outdoor patio under the spectacular tree canopy. The property is on 4.5 acres of lush beauty with a seasonal stream, an organic veggie start farm, fruit trees galore (help yourself when in season....) papaya, banana, lilikoi (passion fruit), coffee, plantains, oranges, mac nuts, avocado, lychee, mango, guava, grapefruit, tangerines, lemons, coconuts, noni....and you also have access to an additional 4 acres on the adjacent property—which is home of The Sacred Garden—beautiful!.

WE HAVE NOT INCLUDED the 13.41% Hawaii Transient Accommodations Tax because you would have to pay the airbnb fee on that so to save you their fee WE WILL SEND YOU A SEPARATE INVOICE as a resolution request through Airbnb for the additional fee. (They do not add extra fees to the resolution requests.) The tax is $18 -26 a night depending on the time of year (price per night). PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS STATE LAW THAT WE ADD THE TAX...Sorry!

We have a 3 night minimum however we will book for 1-2 nights if the nights are available between other bookings so feel free to check with us. We have a 5 night minimum during Holiday periods like Christmas.

We are in an awesome location just 20 minutes from the airport and Costco, and only 2 miles to Makawao town restaurants and shops, 7 minutes to Paia, 5 minutes to Haiku town. 50 Minutes to Haleakala National Park entrance.

We also have a house on the property that is a vacation rental as well so if you need more space for a larger gathering let me know!

I offer retreat services—relationship coaching, personal and spiritual growth, guided labyrinth walks and work with Maui's best practitioners so if you want more than a vacation, let me know! We can help you with everything from Massage, to intuitive readings! I also perform weddings so if you are thinking of getting married while you are on Maui....I can also help you with that! This rental is on the property adjacent to The Sacred Garden which has two walking labyrinths, water lily ponds, meditation gardens, and more ...and is free and open to the public daily.

We have caterers available in needed.

The elevation is about 1000 feet which is PERFECT on Maui! We are about 10 degrees cooler than sea level which makes for absolutely comfortable days (70-80 degrees) and GREAT temps for sleeping (usually in the 60's). This is the MAXIMUM elevation you can stay and still go scuba diving on Maui. Speaking of diving...we are avid divers and can assist you booking Scuba Diving with the best dive operation on Maui.

You will definitely want a rental car....there is a bus stop a mile or two away but not ideal....and bikes are a little hazardous as these are hilly, windy, narrow roads.

We have a HUGE friendly dog on the property... he is great...but be forewarned he is BIG! (180 pounds)...not a barker, super sweet. We also have 4 cats on the property but no animals are inside the cottage. There are wild chickens and roosters and cows on the property across the stream. Please keep in mind that this is a jungle environment and it is nearly impossible to keep all insects out of any accommodation in Hawaii unless we poison the place. If you are phobic of insects, the jungle will not be your best bet. Gecko lizards are also common inside the houses here.

Guest access

You have access to the adorable cottage, wireless internet, shared BBQ and the full 8.5 acres of two adjacent lots that includes The Sacred Garden... We have off road parking on a gated property. You are welcome to help yourself to seasonal fruit.

Interaction with guests

We will greet you and orient you to the property and live on the adjacent property so can be there in less than a minute if you need us...but we also respect that you sought our property for privacy. We are available to guide you, answer questions and give you a tour of the farm if desired.

Other things to note

Please note that we have to add the 13.41% Transient accommodations Tax...separately from the airbnb charges. If we included them in the price, you would have to pay airbnb's fees on top of that and it would cost you more....I will send you a "resolution request" through airbnb that will allow you to pay the taxes without any extra fees.
We have a HUGE, extremely friendly dog on the property....you will love him! STMP T(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)

We loved our stay at the Gingerbread Cottage. Nestled on Eve's beautiful property, the cottage is among fruit trees and next to a nice garden center. We enjoyed the roosters and the big friendly dog, as well as fresh papaya from the garden. Wonderful place!

Eve's house was amazing. We ended our 10 day honeymoon here and couldn't have been happier. Great change from the city or resort feel, yet close to everything. Beautiful views just outside for breakfast and coffee. Eve was also a great host. Very welcoming and accommodating. Book this place if you can!

Perfect place to get away and unwind. My wife and I love the proximity to the towns of Paia and Makawao and it was a super easy jumping off point for our drive to Hana and some great hiking. Eve was super nice and made us feel very welcome, she even gave us a tour of the property (which is huge) and showed us some of the cool things onsite, like fruit trees and the sacred garden. Would definitely stay here again!

Gorgeous, lush property! Feels very secluded but is not far from town. Location was central to the many activities we planned that were spread out on the island. We had a moderate drive to most of our destinations. The perfect blend of convenience and solitude. I was travelling with my 12 year old son, but this would also be a nice choice for couples. Quiet, beautiful property, nice breezes, the wonderful sound of rain on the tile roof, sounds of nature. The time we spent just lounging in our room was far more relaxing than a hotel room or condo could have been. For me the lack of air conditioning was not ideal. Being from Texas I am accustomed to enduring much hotter temperatures than Maui also with very high humidity. But I am a person who likes my indoor climate cool and comfy. I do not put on a sweater or jacket at the hint of temps below 70 degrees. The indoors was certainly tolerable. I was never uncomfortable. Especially when I was able to open both doors for nice cross ventilation. But if there had been A/C I would have run it at times. If you prefer your space well conditioned this could be a consideration. Overall, wonderful trip, great property, and an accomodating host!

We are friendly, fun, hardworking people happy to share our beautiful piece of paradise with you. We are writers, photographers, gardeners/farmers, divers, entrepreneurs, animal lovers, artistic, creative people dedicated to living peaceful, drama-free lives. We have been together for over 20 years, and on Maui longer than that.
This property is the cure for "Nature-Deficit-Disorder"....let us give you a tour of the farm and garden, teach you about coffee production and tropical plants....then make a smoothie (or other delicious tropical beverage!) from fresh banana, mango or likikoi!
