This renovated and adorable "Gingerbread House" is a studio cottage nestled amongst beautiful trees and tropical flowers and an organic farm growing Turmeric, Ginger, Papaya, Tangerines, Avocado, Oranges, Lemons, Grapefruit, Macadamia Nuts, Lychee, coffee and tropical flowers.
The cottage is a "tiny home" (220 sq ft) but has high ceilings with a huge window looking out onto the majestic trees. Fully equipped kitchenette, beautifully tiled bathroom, and cedar lined walls. There is internet inside the cottage as well as 3 other systems accessible ON the property both indoors and out that is available to you. We are located in a gulch/valley so cell service is better in some spots on the property than others. We use our cell phones almost exclusively without issue.
The kitchenette is has a coffee maker, microwave, burners, toaster oven and full sized fridge. The bathroom is beautifully tiled and the entire cottage is lined with cedar.
There is a seasonal stream flowing just 50 feet from the cottage with a great spot to sit and sip on coffee or well as an outside table and lanai with a chiminea (outdoor fire chimney). The Cottage has a queen sized bed.
On the adjacent property is The Sacred Garden (free and open to the public) that is a beautiful sanctuary and nursery with two labyrinths, meditation gardens, picnic accessible to our guests.
Jimi Hendrix stayed her in 1970 when he was on Maui filming "Rainbow Bridge". The previous owner was a big wave surfer that Jimi was partying with while on Maui....
We also have a 5 bedroom genuine log house on the property that is also a vacation rental if you have a larger group and want to stay on the property.
This property will feel like you are "away from it all" when you are actually only minutes from shops and restaurants. Makawao Town is just 2 miles away, Haiku Town 3 miles, Paia town about 6 miles and the airport (and Costco) is just 15-20 minutes. There is a beautiful beach about 12 minutes drive away, great hiking 10 minutes away and Haleakala National Park is just 50 minutes from here. We are located at about 1100 feet in elevation so it is 10 degrees cooler than sea level which makes it perfect weather nearly all year round. (60's at night, 60-80's in the day). We are on the boarder of the "wet side" which makes for lots of be rainy at certain cozy, green, lush and you can almost always drive to where it is not raining. The best of both worlds.
We are happy to assist you with planning or booking other activities and have masseuses and other personal and spiritual growth practitioners, life coaches and relationship educators if you would like more of a retreat experience. The Sacred Garden also offers classes by donation, meditations on Sunday morning and full moon labyrinth walks monthly.
We own a scuba/snorkel charter so if you are interested in getting out to Molokini Crater we are happy to assist you.
The Gingerbread House is located on a gated property of 8.5 acres of lush. We are a working farm, and there is a main house on the we are right next door if you need anything. We respect the balance between privacy and availability in the case of need.
