It has 5 bedrooms (one is a spacious loft) and 3 bathrooms (all total there are 10 beds —there is a king that can be divided into two twins so 9 or 10 beds). All located on several acres of lush tropical beauty. If you have more than 10, we have an additional cottage as do my neighbors so let me know and we may be able to accommodate you! The main part of the house has a large living room, covered lanai, fully equipped kitchen, picnic/BBQ areas, and WiFi. It has gas stove/oven, microwave, toaster oven coffee maker, dishwasher, blender, citrus juicer, ironing board, iron, two bathrooms have a bathtub/shower, the other a shower. There is plenty of off road parking. The downstairs suite, adds another bathroom, bedroom and kitchenette with a private entrance. This property is located immediately next door to The Sacred Garden (with two walking labyrinths, succulent gardens, water gardens, meditation gardens) and is where we (the owners) live, so you have easy access to us if you need anything but with plenty of privacy. We have an assistant who also lives on the property in case you need assistance. The property is in close proximity to other attractions like the Piiholo Ziplines, Piiholo Horse Ranch, The Temple of Peace, World-Class Kite and Windsurfing at Ho'okipa and the famous Jaws big surf site. Great hiking trails are just 3 miles away. Haliimaile General Store and Mama's Fish House are minutes away. Haleakala National Park is only 45 minutes away. We are 2 miles to Makawao Town restaurants and shops, 3 miles to Haiku Town, 5 Miles to Paia Town and Baldwin Beach. The airport is only 15-20 minutes away but you will feel like you are far away from it all in this absolutely peaceful garden setting. We have a working organic farm and a nursery growing ornamentals , a botanical garden and coffee farm. Access to this property and our adjacent property, The Sacred Garden, allows you to go on walks through 8.5 acres of an incredible tropical setting. Upon request we will happily offer a tour so you can learn about Hawaiian plants, coffee production, water lilies, etc.. We have mango, coconuts, coffee, papaya, lemon, tangerine, bananas, avocados, lilikoi (passion fruit) macadamia nuts, lychee, breadfruit, and flowers galore—haleconia, bird of paradise, jade vine, ginger, allspice, and an absolutely incredible ylang ylang tree. Different flowering trees take turns blooming so the valley is constantly featuring a different splash of color. Gardening classes are also available as well as tours of several of Maui's other unique farms. We also offer personalized private retreats and can arrange for massage, private yoga or Qigong, relationship-, spirituality-, creativity-, personal growth-, life coaching, intuitive readings....we are affiliated with Maui's best practitioners... There is a seasonal stream running through the property so from time to time there is the additional treat of a stream—(or a river!) running through the yard. 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. There is a large dog on the property who is extremely friendly who will likely greet you as you come home.... 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. Getting Married on Maui? We can officiate the ceremony for you! If you need more space, we work with the neighbors and can guide you to their listings sites for larger groups.... Great for Family reunions, retreats, weddings, birthdays, small gatherings Just let us know what you are looking for!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Perfect family retreat
The six of us (me, hubby, three teen-agers, gf of eldest son) sought a place to host ourselves and additional extended family (my mom, two sisters, hubby) for our first and likely only Christmas in Maui. This house was perfect! The six of us got to spread out and claim bedrooms, and each pair of us shared a bathroom. The full kitchen meant that it was easy to cook for a party of ten. and the location is amazing! Upcountry jungle with lush greenery at every turn, lots of windows, the lanai off the kitchen had the perfect breezes morning noon and night. I was especially grateful for how well the house was supplied - three sets of dishes in main kitchen plus more in the downstairs studio apartment kitchen, all the pots and pans and serving spoons, tongs, etc., coffee maker and microwave of course, and corkscrew and more. I was all worried about food shopping, but really it's only about 15 minutes to the airport and the nearby Safeway and Costco, and about ten minutes from Haiku Market which has everything. And of course there is free WiFi which we all appreciated. Special kudos to our dear kind host Eve who lives next door, who answered texts promptly, and who brought over homemade banana bread on Christmas Day! and the wild chickens of Maui are out in full force! Special shout-out to the black rooster named "Jet" who is gorgeous and gregarious. The kids loved seeing him and the others every day. We got used to cock-a-doodle-doo every morning at 3:30am. If we ever go to back to Maui, we will come back here. It's a perfect base to explore the rest of the island, and a restful contrast to busy beach life.

Off the Beaten Path - AND THAT'S GREAT
This Log House is away from the Tourist Areas of Maui! It is set in the "Up Country" (the mountains) and was perfect for the 6 of us. We brought our adult children and spouses and everyone enjoyed the relax atmosphere after spending the day on major outdoor activities. About the house - it has everything you need to cook any kind of meal you want. We did Breakfast every morning and once grilled steaks. The house has a large living room with a 65" TV to show your pictures and diving movies on. The bedrooms are comfortable and spacious. The Master only has a Queen but after a long day of activities is was perfect. Note: This house does not have Air Conditioning - but that really does not matter because being in the Mountains the nightly temps in June were 64 to 67 so sleeping with the windows open was delightful. The roosters in the surrounding area would call out at the oddest times in the night but it really did not disturb us. About the Owners: Eve and Steve are WONDERFUL people with an incredible knowledge of the island - where to go, what to do and when to do it. We dove with their dive operations Makena Coast Dive Charters - which was wonderful at Molokini Crater (100' plus vis) but we will review them in another section. Bottom-line - it was awesome to be out to the hustle and bustle of the tourist areas so we could enjoy the island's natural beauty.

I'm so sorry this man is so unhappy, but he is NOT telling you that he reserved our house in MARCH for a month over Christmas and New Years. I blocked the dates for him for 64 days. He cancelled in MAY. That is two months, not "a few days." I sent him a contract prior to his giving me a deposit that clearly said the deposit is only refundable if we can rebook the nights. So far, we were able to rebook 12 of the 25 nights and even though by contract I didn't have to give him ANY deposit back, I offered him 50% back or suggested he wait to see if we get more of the days rented in the hopes his dates would still rebook (his reservation dates have not even started yet). He refused, said I was stealing the money, says he didn't read the contract and is threatening legal action because he doesn't want to honor his agreement. In the meantime he came to Maui and is staying somewhere else rather than using the 6 nights he had already prepaid for. If you are concerned about this ONE bad review in years of renting, I'll be happy to let you read the email string between us so you fully understand who actually broke the agreements.

Peaceful property for our family vacation!
Our family of 8 adults and a baby were warmly greeted by Eve upon our arrival and were taken on a tour of the cabin. We were delighted to find many thoughtful touches throughout including a bag of coffee that we had forgotten to bring with us! Eve invited us to join her for a full moon labyrinth walk that evening, and although tired from a long day of travel most of us attended what turned out to be an unexpectedly moving experience. The cabin proved to be a warm and welcoming home base for us throughout our time in Maui. The kitchen was very well equipped and stocked with all the essentials. There were lots of towels, for use inside the cabin as well as at the beach. The lanai was a favourite meeting spot for morning coffee where we enjoyed the beauty and peacefulness of the property. We all made frequent visits to the Sacred Garden where we found the staff to be warm and knowledgeable. I will never forget the moment I shared with my daughters at the center of the labyrinth. Much mahalo to Eve and Steve for their warm hospitality and creating this beautiful and peaceful oasis.

Eve and Steve are the best hosts!
Eve and Steve are just the nicest people. They were super generous with their time and help, and made me feel like I was staying at a friend's place. Everything was nice and clean, and really well-supplied. If you want to feel like you have actually been to the heart of Hawaii, rather than staying in a beach-front pigeon coop, I'd recommend this place.

Wonderful setting, great base for exploring away from congested tourist areas
Great comfortable setting for our mini-family reunion vacation, with 5 bedrooms & 3 baths. There were nice tropical decorations throughout this very well done renovated log cabin. Owners Eve & Steve were helpful & gracious. Eve gave us a very nice tour of their grounds with abundant fruit to taste & provided info & tips for places to eat &/or visit. They also own Sacred Garden greenhouse nursery right next door, a peaceful place to visit with 2 labyrinths for walking meditation. (We attended an interesting complementary essential oils class there.) It was very relaxing to be away from the hustle & bustle of the usual tourist areas, and a great base to explore the Kula district. Weather didn't cooperate for us to go to Haleakala, but had fun going to a lavender farm, goat dairy, distillery, & browsing through Makawao including: 2 glass blowing studios, art gallery, malasadas & doughnuts on a stick at a local bakery, & a selection of great places to eat nearby. It is a convenient drive to the airport, Kahalui & Paia. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Sacred Garden Log Cabin Retreat!

Ultimate Maui Vacation Rental!!
Our Hawaiian experience was more than we could have hoped for! We have been to multiple Islands several times and this rental was by far the best. The log house is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. The home was totally spacious, beautiful bathrooms, fully stocked kitchen with great small and large appliances, dishes and pots and pans. The laundry room was stocked and very clean, the beds were all as comfortable as our beds at home with wonderful, clean linens and bedding. The Sacred Garden is a must see if you are visiting Maui, an awesome spiritual experience. The owners gave us a tour of the 9 acre property which was very well kept and manicured, they were very gracious, accommodating, available hosts! The Hogan's dog was a much welcomed treat and we loved that he greeted us each morning and evening! All 12 of us would recommend this amazing Maui Rental for sure!

Something different
The log cabin is a fantastic option, with easy access and wonderful hosts. A few things to know: no air conditioning (we asked for fans which helped), cockroaches and other bugs (you are in the woods after all), internet access limited to a relatively confined area. The cabin was quiet and peaceful. PLENTY of space with chairs and towels for a beach excursion. The lighting was poor in several rooms, making reading difficult. Well equipped kitchen. Teenagers liked the loft area away from their annoying parents.

Best place to stay in Maui!
We came to Maui for a family vacation. We had 5 adults and 5 kids. Everyone in our group was amazed at our accommodations. The grounds are spectacular, we felt like we got an authentic Maui experience. The owner, Eve, made us feel very welcome and since she lives on the property she was in close proximity if we needed anything.The location was close to anything we wanted, beaches, stores, and anything else we wanted to see. We will be back to stay at the Sacred Garden again. We feel it is a part of us now.

About the neighbourhood
This is an awesome location. It feels like you are way out in the lush beauty of Hana but without the drive.

And the temperatures at 1100 feet a perfect all year round....60's at night, 70's-80's during the day. WE get enough rain to stay green and lush, but enough sun to keep a tan...and see lots of rainbows! WE ARE PERFECTLY LOCATED! This is a lush garden/jungle setting with a beautiful seasonal stream in the back yard, an organic nursery and The beautiful Sacred Garden right next door complete with two walking labyrinths, meditation gardens, fairy gardens, water lily and lotus ponds. This is a private retreat setting, the peace and serenity are tangible......
