"Where the Hawaiian Culture and Plantation Life Blend"
Once a crossroads between Hawaiian culture and western plantation life, the estate and plantation towne provide a glimpse back in time and remain today as memories of Maui's sugar and pineapple production days. Sugar cane and pineapple fields are still in operation all around the estate, as Maui's last operating mill and the old cannery are located nearby. Among the grounds of this old estate, is where traditional Hawaiian culture emerges once again, through the continuing educational program of Hawaiian healing practices.
Escape to Maui's Beautiful North Shore and Upcountry
Haiku Plantation Inn is located within the north shore and quaint upcountry community of Maui. Beautiful beaches, tropical rainforests, nature preserves, pineapple and sugar cane fields, hike and bike trails, green rolling hills, daily rainbows and paniolo, Hawaiian cowboy, country all merge here, along the cooler slopes of Haleakala. It is Hawaii and Maui at its best with historic plantation townes, wonderful boutiques and galleries, fine restaurants, working farms, beautiful scenery, friendly people and our own "Fourth of July" rodeo and parade.
Mahalo To Lonely Planet
Being selected as the "local knowledge" expert for visitors to our island is a great honor. Haiku Plantation Inn's location affords the perfect place to begin and end your daily exploring of this wonderful tropical paradise called Maui, the Valley Isle.
The ambience of Maui's North Shore with its spectacular tropical beauty, majestic coastline, rain forests with waterfalls and Hawaiian rural country life mix and overlap here along these lower slopes of Haleakala. Haiku Plantation Inn is located 400 feet above sea level and due to our elevation and the North Shore gentle trades we enjoy a comfortable climate with cooler temperatures. We average 76-78 in the days and 68-70 in the evenings.
Here in Haiku we typically have beautiful Maui sunny days and as in the tropics our few gentle rains do create spectacular rainbows and a true garden of eden. We are lucky to have two lush acres producing a most magnificent and fruitful garden, loved for generations. Maui's oldest upcountry mango tree, a giant of a tree, welcomes our guests with open arms as you enter the property past the pond and waterfall. Plumeria, haleconia, & bananas all grow wild and mix with a beautiful and fruitful garden; with roots before the turn of the 20th century and now once again lovingly returns the fruits of those who toiled over a hundred years ago.
Upcountry Maui & North Shore areas are truly spectacular. It's the Hawaii of history books, the tropical destination visitors crave to find and experience. We are only a few miles away from the resorts, yet it remains culturally viable, ecologically advanced and community based : the area has much to offer our visitors; there are surprises and delightful experiences: pure magic awaits.

Meet Your Hosts / The Camou Family
John began surfing when he was a young boy in Southern California, being of Latin & French heritage it was an unusual choice of lifestyle coming from the heart of Los Angeles. But he loved surfing and it was his passion in life. As for myself.. I just loved the beach, the ocean and the water, & that made for a perfect match for over 30 years. He is greatly missed.
Having family here and on Oahu I traveled back and forth from a very young age, growing up in S. California. Even when young I knew I wanted to work in tourism. So, being young and bold I started a destination and tour company on Maui all the way back in 1981, as one of the first woman owned companies in that industry. John continued to work hard in the electricians trade until he found his passion here at Haiku , when we both decided it was time to change our focus to a smaller yet close to our heart mission; that of preserving one of Maui's last remaining true plantation homes and estates.
We are blessed with the most wonderful son, his adorable new wife, fabulous parents and an array of fabulous family and friends. The bed and breakfast with all our wonderful guests make this home a joy and our family appreciates all the support and love from our community.
