It sits beautifully perched, one property back from the cliffs of Waipio Bay, a landscape very much like Hana. A very comfortable home with all the amenities. Only 15 minutes from Hookipa Beach Park, 20 minutes from Paia, 20 minutes from Makawao, 30 minutes from the airport, an hour from Hana. 9 years of not just satisfied, but thrilled guests, 130+ guestbook entries and not one dissatisfied.

Off The Beaten Path
Our stay at Maui Chalet was a nice change from the hustle and bustle in our everyday lives. Spent the first 5 days in Kihei and wanted a different environment. The property was beautiful, the house was unique, clean and definitely out in the jungle. It was so peaceful and relaxing there. Loved the sound of the rain (which it rained everyday-but only for a short period each day). The house had everything we needed. The phone reception with complicated, which was a good thing since that was one of the things I was trying to get away from to relax. The road to get to the Chalet was quite bumpy and rough. It was an adventure getting to it but made it all the more adventurous. You had to drive through a tunnel of tropical bushes and plants to get there. Make sure your car is not a low rider, or you may run into difficulties. lol. Left too many times to go shopping, site seeing and running to Makawao for fresh rolls and donuts on a stick. Would of liked to relax and chill a bit more. But not too far from Kahului or other busy areas on Maui. I highly recommend staying here. The host and hostess were most accommodating and eager to please. Thank you Jette and Steve for a being apart of our wonderful vacation.

So happy you enjoyed it here! the road does get a grating of and on, so not always so bumpy and the tunnel is an ongoing pruning project.. We now have a landline for guests with free long distance. Cell phones work from the screened in lanai, but have problem sometimes with the center of the living room because of that thick ceilings of the two-story house.

Fantastic!
We couldn't have been more thrilled with our stay at the Maui Chalet. It was spacious, beautiful, clean and well stocked with all one needs. The views and decks were fantastic. Truly a tropical view and experience. It was off the path-well-traveled that provided privacy but also easy to get to Paia for great food and supplies. The owners are spectacular . . . willing to give advice, give tours and share their experience. Finally, the hot-tub is the perfect way to relax into the evening. We couldn't recommend it more highly.

Jungle Paradise
Wonderful location, we felt like we were in another world. Such amazing grounds, terrific hot tub, and Jette, the host, is lovely. The house has everything you need, including kitchen items, books, and games. The only downside were the bugs - to be expected in a tropical jungle setting, but there were lots of little ants that seemed to sense our presence and got worse throughout the stay, despite best efforts to keep neat and clean. Apparently, the immense amount of rain the month before contributed to the infestation. Still, we really enjoyed our stay.

When they came they noticed ants on the outside stairs, they told their son, "no big deal". We numerous times told them to please call us with any questions or concerns. I never heard anything about ants, my Wife, Jette, does not think they even mentioned it to her until they left. They said they had not taken out their kitchen compost for 4 DAYS !! They said they forgot where we told them the outside compost bin was. They did not call us, just let it sit inside the house, in the tropics for 4 days. The Chalet was not 'Infested', there were ants in the kitchen in a row, not all over everything. There were some ants upstairs because the unusually heavy rains had flooded their outside nests. A day after these people left, we had all the ants gone. If they had let us know, we would have REMOVED THE COMPOST, wiped up the line of ants, put soap water in the cracks and baited with boric acid, solving the problem. We could easily have followed up, checking in several times a day while they were out. Unlike hotels, we never enter a guests dwelling unless they ask us to, we totally respect their privacy. If informed, we would come in as many times as necessary. Don't tell us after you leave and then use words like 'Infest'. We are one property back from one of the few pristine bays left on Maui. We do not spray poisons around the house, all over the grounds, like the corporate hotels and condos do, which just runs into the ocean, where even minusule amounts destroy the coral and marine life. We respect the land, have some respect for us.

Beautiful Property , Excellent Value , Centrally Located, Very Private
This house in Haiku is centrally located in Maui . It is an hour from the west side , and an hour from the east side. The house is architecturally stunning and accommodated my wife and 3 teenagers very well. There are a lot of extras that come with the house such as snorkeling gear , beach mats , kitchen appliances , washer / dryer and a Jacuzzi. Gorgeous grounds with fruit trees , palm trees , ocean view and complete privacy. Even the owners of the house were excellent - they were very considerate, kind and trusting . i would recommend this house to anyone interested in a vacation rental away from the crowds.
