About this listing

Romantic hideaway! This property has the lush beauty and privacy of Hana, without the drive! Only 15-20 minutes to the airport, 10 minutes to beaches, 2 minutes to restaurants and shops...on a private gated property with organic nursery. BEAUTIFUL!

The space

This place is a gem! SO CUTE! A recently remodeled 1930's cottage....that Jimi Hendrix stayed in when he was on Maui in 1970 to film Rainbow Bridge. Beautiful, quiet...REAL Maui! Recently remodeled, very cute! It is lined with cedar on the inside so it smells delightful when you walk in....

The Gingerbread House is a studio cottage with a kitchenette (toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, counter-top burners, full sized fridge) and spacious bathroom with a large custom-built, tiled shower.. It has high cathedral ceilings with a huge window that looks out on beautiful lush greenery. It is on a gated property.
There is wireless Internet in the cottage, but in the event it isn't working, there is wireless available to you in other locations on the property. We have gotten the internet FIXED since the reviews were written so it is WORKING IN THE GINGERBREAD HOUSE AGAIN! (as of 1/16/17)

It has a queen sized bed, as well as a day bed (can be used as a twin), and an outdoor patio under the spectacular tree canopy. The property is on 4.5 acres of lush beauty with a seasonal stream, an organic veggie start farm, fruit trees galore (help yourself when in season....) papaya, banana, lilikoi (passion fruit), coffee, plantains, oranges, mac nuts, avocado, lychee, mango, guava, grapefruit, tangerines, lemons, coconuts, noni....and you also have access to an additional 4 acres on the adjacent property—which is home of The Sacred Garden—beautiful!.

WE HAVE NOT INCLUDED the 13.41% Hawaii Transient Accommodations Tax because you would have to pay the airbnb fee on that so to save you their fee WE WILL SEND YOU A SEPARATE INVOICE as a resolution request through Airbnb for the additional fee. (They do not add extra fees to the resolution requests.) The tax is $18 -26 a night depending on the time of year (price per night). PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS STATE LAW THAT WE ADD THE TAX...Sorry!

We have a 3 night minimum however we will book for 1-2 nights if the nights are available between other bookings so feel free to check with us. We have a 5 night minimum during Holiday periods like Christmas.

We are in an awesome location just 20 minutes from the airport and Costco, and only 2 miles to Makawao town restaurants and shops, 7 minutes to Paia, 5 minutes to Haiku town. 50 Minutes to Haleakala National Park entrance.

We also have a house on the property that is a vacation rental as well so if you need more space for a larger gathering let me know!

I offer retreat services—relationship coaching, personal and spiritual growth, guided labyrinth walks and work with Maui's best practitioners so if you want more than a vacation, let me know! We can help you with everything from Massage, to intuitive readings! I also perform weddings so if you are thinking of getting married while you are on Maui....I can also help you with that! This rental is on the property adjacent to The Sacred Garden which has two walking labyrinths, water lily ponds, meditation gardens, and more ...and is free and open to the public daily.

We have caterers available in needed.

The elevation is about 1000 feet which is PERFECT on Maui! We are about 10 degrees cooler than sea level which makes for absolutely comfortable days (70-80 degrees) and GREAT temps for sleeping (usually in the 60's). This is the MAXIMUM elevation you can stay and still go scuba diving on Maui. Speaking of diving...we are avid divers and can assist you booking Scuba Diving with the best dive operation on Maui.

You will definitely want a rental car....there is a bus stop a mile or two away but not ideal....and bikes are a little hazardous as these are hilly, windy, narrow roads.

We have a HUGE friendly dog on the property... he is great...but be forewarned he is BIG! (180 pounds)...not a barker, super sweet. We also have 4 cats on the property but no animals are inside the cottage. There are wild chickens and roosters and cows on the property across the stream. Please keep in mind that this is a jungle environment and it is nearly impossible to keep all insects out of any accommodation in Hawaii unless we poison the place. If you are phobic of insects, the jungle will not be your best bet. Gecko lizards are also common inside the houses here.

Vacation rental permit. STMP T

Guest access

You have access to the adorable cottage, wireless internet, shared BBQ and the full 8.5 acres of two adjacent lots that includes The Sacred Garden... We have off road parking on a gated property. You are welcome to help yourself to seasonal fruit.

Interaction with guests

We will greet you and orient you to the property and live on the adjacent property so can be there in less than a minute if you need us...but we also respect that you sought our property for privacy. We are available to guide you, answer questions and give you a tour of the farm if desired.

Other things to note

Please note that we have to add the 13.41% Transient accommodations Tax...separately from the airbnb charges. If we included them in the price, you would have to pay airbnb's fees on top of that and it would cost you more....I will send you a "resolution request" through airbnb that will allow you to pay the taxes without any extra fees.
We have a HUGE, extremely friendly dog on the property....you will love him! STMP T

This is a quiet and secluded retreat for a couple to escape from the hubbub of civilization. However, the center of town is a short drive away to enjoy a satisfying meal and basic food supplies. The gingerbread house itself is immaculate and clean with a comfortable bed, modern shower stall.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay. Our experience on Maui was definitely enhanced by the charm of the gingerbread house. The serenity and comfortably cooler climate upcountry was a nice change from the hustle and bustle and heat along the beaches in Kaanapali. The property itself is very peaceful as a place to relax and tune out the world. It is exactly the place to retreat if you are looking for a setting that will help keep your "real world" stresses from finding you on the island. While we found the property serene, we did not find it too isolated. We found it conveniently located for exploring all over the island. I would definitely stay here again on a return trip to Maui.

Eve was an amazing host. Quick to meet us at the property, gave us pointers as to how we could maximize our stay. It was apparent that Eve takes a great deal of pride in the property, and without question this shows. The home was quaint but perfect for two. We treated this as a home base as we embarked on adventures on the island. We would stay here again, and gladly recommend others to do the same.

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 35 year anniversary in Maui. My son told us about Airbnb as an alternative to hotels. We'll most likely never do hotels again after our stay here at the Gingerbread. Eve is such a great host and made us feel at home here. This is one place we will surely visit again.

Beautiful is not what makes this place special. Sure, it’s gorgeous, but gorgeous is what Maui is supposed to be about. For my Jennie and me, the thing that made this gingerbread house so memorable was the way we transformed between arrival and departure. We came preoccupied and left at peace. Much of this can be attributed to the little gingerbread house itself (for which you will find reviews aplenty herein), but the true difference was Eve and her little labyrinth. We came and experienced the unexpected and departed more than we were. I can’t promise the same for you, but I can, and do hope.

We are friendly, fun, hardworking people happy to share our beautiful piece of paradise with you. We are writers, photographers, gardeners/farmers, divers, entrepreneurs, animal lovers, artistic, creative people dedicated to living peaceful, drama-free lives. We have been together for over 20 years, and on Maui longer than that.
This property is the cure for "Nature-Deficit-Disorder"....let us give you a tour of the farm and garden, teach you about coffee production and tropical plants....then make a smoothie (or other delicious tropical beverage!) from fresh banana, mango or likikoi!
