My husband had to take a test in Wailuku for a possible job employment opportunity back in 2017, so we decided to stay in Haiku. We found Haiku inn and decided to give it a shot. We were so incredibly happy we did! We’ve been to Maui every year since and nothing is like the stay at the Haiku inn. Want to feel the TRUENESS of what ALOHA really means?! Stay here!! It is so warm & friendly. It’s not your resort stay, but better! You feel as though you’re staying at a family’s house. The rooms are cozy with their own bathrooms. They are like bedrooms. It rained the morning we stayed so we got to listen to it outside our window. It was so relaxing. There is breakfast in the morning (bagels, cereals, juice, milk...etc) and you sit at a table with other guests if you’d like to socialize, or you can sit in the living room, or on the deck for a more private feel. The guests are always so nice and the sharing of stories is always the best! We had hour long conversations with people from China visiting on their honeymoon, Germany, to people living a few cities away from us in California! Outside you’ll find a quaint little pond and chickens and roosters. They are not a bother at all! We were fortunate enough to meet Sandy, and she was AMAZING. We spent so much time just talking to her and she shared her stories about the island and recommended spots to visit. She was incredibly hospitable, friendly, & sweet. There is also Wes, who helps maintain the inn and he is so down to earth and friendly! We loved him so much! They really do make you feel like family here! (Mind you, we only stayed in Maui for 3 days.) we didn’t want to go home. We almost wanted to move in! Lol only reason we didn’t was because we had our son to come home to 😆 The next year we stayed on the Lahaina end, at a resort. It was ok, but found ourself driving on the haiku end every day. We stopped to visit Wes and Sandy & We were so bummed we didn’t stay there. We won’t online to see if they had availability for the rest of our stay and sadly they did not. We knew they would be full, it’s such an amazing spot to stay in. We regretted not staying at the Haiku inn our entire stay. This place doesn’t disappoint! It’s even closer to the Road to Hana! Can’t wait to be back!
The B&B is situated in an lovely wild garden and relativly quiet. The „Continental“ breakfast is with freshly brewed coffee, fresh fruit and cereals to mix up by one self. You can also help yourself with toast and bagels. If you want to have a daily made bed - you have to do it by yourself. If you want to stay in clean restrooms - you have to do it by yourself. The Kirchen to be User is Quote well equiped. A market place is mit far away. The man who does the housekeeping loves the house, the maintanace is good. But we missed a room mate who takes care. If you like to stay at a enchanting somehow extraordanary place- come. If you like it clean - stay away.
We wanted a place away from the crowds of tourists at the beach and booked the Haiku Inn on the strength of its reviews and the seeming charm in its photos. We were really looking forward to our stay but were utterly and completely disappointed. This is not a B&B in the usual sense; it’s not someone’s home with your host on the premises full-time. When something goes wrong there’s no one to turn to—and that can be bad. In our case, when we went to bed we noticed the sheets looked like they’d been slept in. Our own sheets can look wrinkled too, so we can accept that. In bed, however, the BO was overwhelming. Whether it was the sheets, the mattress pad or the mattress is unclear, but we hardly slept that night. We contacted Booking.com in the morning and reported the problem. We said we’d pay for the night, but wanted the rest of our stay refunded. Alternatively we’d stay on if the problem was remedied and the first night was comped. The owner opted for the former which tells me he or she does not really care about guests as the next visitors will confront the same situation. Don’t expect much of breakfast either: some fresh fruit, packaged bagels and toast with margarine or cream cheese, stale donut holes and coffee cake, though the coffee itself was fine. Not even any orange juice. Bottom line: this place is run on a shoestring though you wouldn’t know it from the prices. Savvy travelers would be well-advised to stay elsewhere.
I understand the challenges of maintaining an old home in a damp climate. Still, the Plantation Inn has fairly steep price point (in my opinion) for the actual condition of the property. The tub in our room was tiny, and the condition a bit scary. It looked like the enamel was coming off. There is what looks like rot around the windows. Also, if you are concerned about security know that you are relying on other guests to lock the front door when they leave, and during our stay we never found the front door locked.
The Haiku Plantation is a lovely place to stay if one is wising to visit the Wet and Beautiful Region of Haiku Maui. The room I stayed in was lovely..The staff is very friendly.. I have had better breakfasts at other locations.. ..not that excited about the breakfasts.. however, the Inn felt very homey... and had plenty of places to sit and read.. or sit outside...in a lovely tropical setting. Rains alot there.. making it lush and gorgeous
The location is good and the hotel is nice overall. Nevertheless, it should be cleanier (we found 2 big cockroaches) and the people managing should be nicer with the guests (you have the impression that they dont have any interest in their guests)
My partner and I stayed in Haiku Plantation Inn for 4 nights. It's not a bad place, but there is a lot of opportunity for improvement. I have extensively travelled all continents of the world and visited hundreds of hotels and B&B's from $10 to $500 per night. People who rate this place with 5 stars have either very low expectations or no travel experience. At arrival at the parking we had to find our way through a pool of mud and dead leaves, which is obviously not very welcoming. Hospitality was lacking, just functional but no interest in their guests. The room is a bit small with no walking space left when you have your suitcase open on the floor. Hot water in the shower takes ages. The mattress is too soft and pillows too thin. I did not particularly like the huge cockroach in the room nor the dozen bug bites I woke up with after 1 night. Breakfast is plentiful, but very basic quality. The walls in the house are paper thin, which means you hear everything from the neighbours or other guests having breakfast. I would not really mind any of these 'issues' if the cost per night was US$100, but at US$216 per night one expects a different quality level. The only reason I don't score it 2 stars for (lack of) value is that all hotel prices in Maui are hugely inflated (the island premium). In Asia I often had better rooms for 1/4th of the costs. The location of the B&B is very convenient for the two most popular day trips on Maui (Road to Hana and Haleakala). Just 1 km down the road there are a few highly recommendable restaurants (Sala Dang Thai Kitchen and Nuka Japanese restaurant).
If you want to know how it must have felt to stay in Maui 50+ years ago the Haiku Plantation Inn will take you there. My girlfriend and I recently spent a week there. It is the only one we found that had the ambiance of an earlier period of time on Maui. It is located in the northern part of the island conveniently located just 1.2 miles off Hana Road. The grounds are well maintained with trees, shrubs and flowers surrounding the large open area in the back. The Inn is quant, very clean, and the attention to detail is impeccable. The linens were fresh and the room had been thoroughly cleaned. Cooling is opening the windows, feeling the cool tropical breezes. If needed, you can turn on the overhead fans for more fresh air (just like they did at the turn of the century). We woke each morning to the sound of roosters crowing, chickens cackling and birds singing. The air was always cool and tropically refreshing. Flowers were blooming just outside our bedroom window. Breakfast was continental with excellent coffee, fruits, bagels, cakes and tropical juices. The inn is stocked with a lot of literature about the island. In addition, Wes the caretaker is very informative about the history of the island and the Inn in particular. We highly recommend this Inn for a “Back in Time” experience. Thank you Sandy, Wes and Becca making our stay so perfect.
This plantation home, built in the 1870s, retains much of is old charm but is clean and well maintained. Sandy, the owner, has done an amazing job of furnishing the rooms and common area. The location is ideal - 20 minutes from the airport close to the interesting artsie town of Paia, with some great eating and drinking. Several overlooks and some accessible beaches are near. The breakfasts are continental (no cooking) with an ample supply of fresh fruit, roles, muffins, bagels, breads, cereal, yogurt. milk and juices. Every morning Wes brews an urn full of tasty coffee. This is a wonderful place to spend some time on Maui.
This is our 5th year of starting our winter in Hawaii at the Haiku Plantation Inn. This is an old Hawaii plantation house. It has lots of charm and no two rooms are alike. This is definitely NOT the Hilton. It is spotlessly clean and the towels are big and soft. Things we enjoyed most on this trip 1) breakfast with people from Austria, Holland and middle America 2) fresh fruit for breakfast - we had "apple bananas" straight from a tree in the yard (they looked over ripe, but they were delicious),fresh papaya which is so much better than what you buy in the store,and we learned to eat passion fruit (also fresh - what a treat) 3) Haiku Plantation has large grounds surrounded by a "jungle" We consider it very relaxing 4) There is no A/C, but with a little practice you can coordinate the ceiling fan and the windows to be perfectly comfortable - my wife hates hotel room A/C and she just loves the comfort available with natural air in Hawaii 5) The people will get you anything you ask for - beach towels - beach chairs - books of local travel sights - they are friendly and accommodating
