“Wonderful views in Haiku Maui in a private studio”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

We stayed in Maui Ocean Breezes in the Whispering Winds Studio for a week. When we arrived to check in it was dark so when we woke up the next day to walk around the grounds it was stunning! The ocean view from our patio and the grounds was amazingly beautiful. It is very tropical and the owners provide you with a fresh fruit basket upon arrival. There are many areas where the owner has outside yard art which she calls her shrines to Maui. So nice! There is a salt water pool with a fountain to swim in, and a yoga meditation room that overlooks the ocean. My husband and I loved walking the hill on the street outside the property. It is located in an area of Maui that is not touristy, and reminded us of how Maui used to be before it was developed. The owners are wonderful hosts.

Our studio room had everything we needed and it is very artsy inside. We ate most breakfasts there outside our unit overlooking the ocean on our patio. The weather is so nice as it is up mountain a bit so there are cooling ocean breezes and the rain makes the area very tropical and green. The only noise at night are the palms trees swaying, and the song of the birds in the morning.

It is about 10-15 minutes to a great surfing, windsurfing, and kiteboarding beach Hookipa. We saw turtles there! There are other beautiful beaches close-by to enjoy with white sand and turquoise water. It is also close to three towns Hookipa, Makawao, and Paia. We enjoyed checking out the restaurants and shopping there. I swam in a waterfall about 5 minutes away from our unit and they also have fresh juices for enjoyment just outside the waterfall.

If you want to be away from the crowds and yet close enough to drive everywhere on the island this is your place. It was very hard to leave our Maui home and we loved it.

Room Tip: Go to there website as we stayed in the studio but it was just two of us. They have other rooms avai...

Our stay in Maui Ocean Breezes was wonderful! It was quiet and the only noise we could hear were the singing birds in the morning. It's in a great location away from the main tourist areas and the views are extraordinary - sea view on one side and views of the volcano on the other!

The pool is a refreshing treat first thing in the morning and after a day out exploring and we enjoyed using the barbecue every evening.

We live in the UK so were unable to send the deposit by cheque but were able to do a bank transfer directly to Anjali's Hawaiian bank account. She was always quick to respond to our emails and to confirm that she had received the money. This was very reassuring!

Using Maui Ocean Breezes as our base, we were able to drive to Hana (with many scenic stops and swimming holes on the way, and ate Aunty Sandy's Banana Bread in Keanae- delicious!), we had a tasty lunch in Paia (Cafe Mambo), drove around the West Coast (interesting single lane road for part of it!), went to the beaches (Ulua was great for snorkelling) and also had a couple of early mornings to drive to the Harbours for boat trips to Molokini and Lanai which meant we saw some wonderful sunrises. We also drove to the top of Haleakala Crater and stayed for the sunset which was extraordinary!

One recommendation would be to think ahead in terms of grocery shopping so you don't have to drive out of your way to get dinner! We had trouble finding the shops in Haiku and parking in Paia is not always easy so we sometimes drove 30 minutes (each way) to the Safeway in Kahului.

Thank you Anjali for providing such a wonderful place to stay!

Green Features: There wasn't any information on what could be recycled and composted and we couldn't find the compost bin. Having this information available would be helpful. Also there were ants in the kitchen that were not a major concern to us but there are eco-friendly ways to deter them from staying.

We were looking for a peaceful place with no crowds and Maui Ocean Breezes was just that. We loved having room to walk around the property, fresh fruit trees to pick from (apple bananas are amazing) and the nice ocean view. Paia, a quaint beach town, is just a short drive away with nice public beaches, restaurants, a local food coop, surf shops and one outstanding gelato shop. Alex was always there if we needed anything and having coolers, beach chairs and snorkeling gear that we could borrow saved us from carrying or buying some. Our whole family enjoyed our stay and would recommend MOB to others..

This early October visit was our first time staying at Maui Ocean Breezes (in the Cottage), though we visit Maui every year to visit our daughter. We love staying on the North Shore side of Maui, and this visit was perfect. Alex is a gracious host, the facilities were quite suitable and very well kept, and the setting was utterly beautiful. It is a very relaxing spot, and as each day passed, we felt more and more at home. A lovely, tranquil location, far from the madding crowd. Haiku is a taste of real Maui living. Thank you.

Room Tip: Cottage is very private, set away from the main house, with a superb view to the ocean.

We've been around the world. We travel for business and pleasure. We like to stay far from tourists traps and act as locals when we discovers new place, without sacrificing the comfort. In short words, we like to feel like home... And this is ALL what you get as Ocean Breezes... Period... Buy a ticket, rent this place, get a tan, quit your job and stay there forever ! ;)

I have stayed here regularly for seven years, and have always found it clean, inviting and in a serene setting. The salt water pool is a welcome change from chlorine, and it is a close drive to Up Country small towns.

Anjeli, Ken and Alex the new caretaker Seem to always be working on the property, but if you need something, they are gracious and prompt in helping you.
The grounds with the view of the sea, and the nice-sized clean pool are major pluses. We rented the apartment and it is well-stocked with utensils, dishes, etc. And there was a weber grill (with supplies). food is expensive in Hawaii, and this gave us the opportunity to eat several meals in, without having to drive to the nearby restaurants.
I was with my college-aged daughter, and the privacy that I would appreciate more if I was with a girlfriend or contemporary, made for some nights when we would be under-occupied. But still, compared to the hubbub of the touristy parts of Maui, I am glad we were here.
BTW, this is the country, and if you have major problems with things that crawl (ants) or fly toward your bright iPad screen at night, Maui Ocean Breezes may not be for you. Your loss!
