I want to start this review by saying that John is by far the best host I've ever had the pleasure to meet. We loved our stay on his flower farm so much that we extended for two more nights without any intention of being in Hana for that long. His farm is located 5 minutes from Waianapanapa State Park (black sand beach), five minutes from "downtown" Hana and Kaihalulu Beach (red sand beach). John is full of recommendations and insight on the surrounding area and we were so thankful he told us about all the must see sights. He has two great pups at the listing - one a little more skittish than the other, but both as sweet as can be. He has by far more amenities than I have ever had whilst tent camping alongside the fact that the property is truly breathtaking. This listing is not one to miss out on if you are looking for a secluded camping spot near Hana.
With Haiku Harmony only being about 15 minutes away from the airport, it is a great place to stay your first night in Maui. Haiku Harmony is centrally located about five minutes away from quant Pa'ia, brilliant surf and turtle watching spot Ho'okipa, and at the beginning of the Road to Hana. The listing is a pole house with ocean views and a wonderful lanai (balcony) that currently wraps around the entire upstairs. There is a large, shared common area equipped with a full kitchen, and sitting/dining area. There are three bedrooms and a loft that will be available for guests to rent out separately or even the entire upstairs if you have a large group. The home and remodels are still a bit of a work in progress, and Chris (the host) is eager to make this spot into an oasis for his guests. There were a few hands in the cookie jar while we were there, as Chris is still trying to sort out managing the property effectively. Something I believe to be important is to know that there are individuals that reside on the first floor of the pole house, but the entrances are separate and the upstairs/downstairs is not connected. Like most Hipcamp's, there are other homes and individuals who reside in different homes on the property as well. Another thing to note is that the listing is the first *right* as you turn on the road and there are two entrances 70 A and B - despite the directions stating it's the first left. With it's close proximity to the airport and Pa'ia, Haiku Harmony was a great start to our stay on Maui; and super convenient for our start on the Road to Hana as we woke up at 5AM from jet lag!
Lowcountry Camping is located off the beaten track on a peaceful part of the island. With the beach being just down the road, it's a great secluded spot to make camp away from the crowds of typical RV and campsites. My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed the peacefulness of it all. The horses are a great sight to wake up. Important to note that there are no bathrooms on this site, and the nearest store, gas station, etc was about a 10 minute drive away. Would definitely recommend this listing!
Grant is a friendly super host that has everything thought out for your stay. The tiny house has ample space away from the main home and close to trails and a waterfall! Hamlin has every amenity one might need such as a mini fridge, hot plate, toaster oven, and compost toilet just a few yards away. The bed is comfortable and cozy, and the space is well designed to accommodate great storage options and a pull out table. Note that cell reception, depending on your provider, could be nonexistent which makes leaving the property a little difficult and easy to get lost!
The Cozy Tiny house is a perfect little get away far enough away to feel secluded while still close to amenities and Greenville. What I loved about the tiny house was its unique open floor plan while still feeling like it was two different rooms and possible to accommodate more than just one couple. I loved that there as no TV and a comfy day bed to read a book on while I listened to the rain. Better yet, it's equipped with a bathtub! The Tiny house has all the amenities you might need: hot plate for cooking (theres a grill outside on the porch), Keurig stocked with coffees and teas, cutlery and plates, and a mini fridge. The tiny home itself is located in Jaime's backyard. The porch and drive way from the main home is connected to the Tiny home but one still feels secluded.
