Follow the signs and head north on highway 36 (known locally as the Hana Highway) towards the towns of Paia and Hana. You will make a left hand turn onto the highway when exiting the airport.
Continue driving east on the Hwy 36 through Paia, past Mama's Fish House Restaurant, and on past Ho'okipa Beach.
The hwy will drop down into "Maliko Gulch" and come up and around a bend. Soon you will see the exit for Haiku and Makawao, near mile marker "11" on the right; and the green road sign which says "Haiku and Makawao" with an arrow. Turn right at this exit ( there is a designated right hand turn lane, and at night a street light) onto Haiku Rd. Follow up the hill and past the big white fenced Baldwin plantation and your left. You will bend sharply to the left and then shortly reach a fork in the road with a red yield sign facing you. Just follow the road and slowly as you make that bend to the right around the corner, as our driveway is immediately on your left. You will see the sign out front as you make that bend. (if daylight).
Please note that Maui and particularily Haiku has few outside lights or street lights, in order to perserve the night sky and lower light polution.
The bed and breakfast is hidden within the lush grounds off the road.
Enter the drive slowly, park in guest parking, and walk past the pond and waterfall to the main porch front entrance. The sliding glass door off the large green deck is not a visitor entrance. Mahalo!

Haiku Community: North Shore and Upcountry
The area of Haiku is still very rural by nature with pineapple and sugar fields nearby. We are surrounded by the streams and reservoirs of the old irrigaton ditches, which feed the sugar production working fields and also many of our local farms. Paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy) ranches are scattered all throughout upcountry, and even an exotic bird sanctuary is behind us. Yet our location is an easy short stroll to the plantation town of Haiku with many unique and even highly acclaimed restaurants and eateries. It is an eclectic mix of grocery markets, trendy food trucks, unique foodie spots like Kamucha and raw foods or NUKA for Japanese and Sushi.. for those who want something more of the local hot spot for loco moco breakfast and huge pancakes we have two very good home style local eateries for dine in or take out.
Our post office along with several small local establishments including a top Fitness Gym, Our New Massage School, Haiku Style (a unique hand made and craft gift showcase boutique), True Value,Thrift store.. Haleakala Bike company for downhill tours etc.. and more are all housed within the walls of the old pineapple canneries. A small plantation town, with friendly local people for a real Hawaiian atmosphere.
Several world famous beaches are within a 5 minute drive, with "Jaws" famous for its large winter waves, "Ho'okipa" infamous worldwide for surfing and windsurfing, and "Tavares" or "Baldwin Beach" providing swimming, body boarding, snorkeling & safe baby beach : so it is easy to see how the north side of the island is the place for locals and visitors alike.
Rainforests and waterfalls with swimming holes begin a short 15 minute drive from our location, as we are just a short distance from the main Hana Highway.
Minutes to: Makawao (Historic Cowboy Town), Paia (Our Trending yet Vintage Plantation Town), Pukalani (Golf Courses), Kula (Adventure Activities, Zip Runs, Paragliding, Horseback Rides), and Ulapalakua (Maui's Only Winery, Vintage General Store, ATV Rides)
A great place to stay while visiting Hana, Haleakala or even the wine country of Ulapalakua.
Kahului and Airport: A brief 15 - 20 minutes close to the airport for late night or early morning flights. We welcome our late arrivals with turn down service and an aloha smile. For our early flight departures, a hot cup of Maui coffee or upcountry herbal tea begins your morning.
Hana:Just off the Hana Hwy many of our guests stay at Haiku Plantation Inn for the convenience of our location and shorter access to begin the famous Hana Highway.
South shore: Kihei and Wailea are a lovely 25 minute drive, off peak traffic, traveling through plantation townes, and one of the only working sugar mills left in Hawaii. It is a drive through history. With sunny beaches and grand resorts, Kihei and the south shore are a great way to spend the day. Remember, it is best to go in the morning's, the south is windy by noon most days.
West side: Lovely Lahaina and famous Kaanapali Beach awaits as you travel through pineapple and sugar cane fields and over the Pali with its magnificent view vista. Take a snorkel and fins and a cooler with beverages, Lahaina translates as unbearable heat. Lots to see in this old whaling village, so take your time and explore.
. Storage for boards in our vintage 1926 classic garage and lots of parking area for vehicles.
Haleakala Sunrise and Hike Trails
