Kokomo Cabin, Maui, Hawaii
Set above the Pacific on a twenty acre coffee plantation on the slopes of Maui, this recently restored historic country cabin is a charming homage to Hawaii’s early plantation days. Part of a larger farm compound of three dwellings, this cabin is completely independent and secluded and sits high atop a ridge bordering a forest preserve in complete privacy. A year round stream runs through the property and you’ll enjoy panoramic views of the Pacific, Mt. Haleakula and the valley below.
The bright open plan living areas are intimate but spacious with vaulted wood beamed ceilings, expansive lanai space and one full bedroom with ocean views. The gourmet kitchen can serve guests at the breakfast bar or out on the lanai lounge area. Unique local and contemporary decor and furnishings along with some colorful accents and tile work keep the detail bight and fun. Every effort has been made to create a low impact, eco-friendy and sustainable lifestyle, primarily using locally sourced and recycled materials during restoration.
Tours of the farm and grounds includes hikes through the forest trails to see the ancient Hawaiian pictographs, waterfalls, artesian springs and pools and gives an overview of the layout of the extensive undeveloped land.
Estate coffee, fresh fruit and flowers to enjoy, Wifi throughout, HD smart cable television with DVD, laundry facilities, all beach accessories provided. Firewood for BBQ.

Located upcountry in Makawao, an old “Paniolo” (cowboy) town only a short drive to the nearby surfing town of Paia and the North Shore beaches. This is the crossroads of upcountry Maui and is a great historic district dating back to the 1800s. Largely rural and agricultural, Maui’s north shore is a quieter part of the island but within easy and beautiful drives to the famed Hana road, Haleakala National Park and Lahaina.
