For those that truly appreciate tropical flora, this new listing in Haiku will resonate with you. This gated and fully fenced two acre property includes an extremely well built and designed cottage of 996 square feet. However, it is the landscaping that truly elevates this home to a truly extraordinary property. The owners of the home have been painstakingly developing the gardens over the last eight years. The end result is Manawai Gardens, a home surrounded by a true botanical wonderland.
The Home at Manawai Gardens
The custom open beam cottage includes one bedroom and one and a half baths. In addition to the 996 square feet of living space, there is a large covered lanai that makes the home live larger. There is also a huge storage area and a two car garage.
Built less than 20 years ago, the owners remodeled the home in 2011. Building materials in both the original construction and the remodel were selected with ease of maintenance, durability and luxury in mind. Some of the quality materials used include Merbau Flooring, Granite counters and custom Koa and Mango Wood Accents. Split system air conditioning adds an extra element of comfort on particularly warm days.
Outdoor Living Spaces at Manawai Gardens
The sellers spend a good deal of their time on the covered lanai of the home. It is an extension of the living space that allows the home to live larger than its interior square footage. It is a great spot to enjoy the vistas of the gardens, feel the cooling tradewinds or escape a passing trade shower.
The lanai overlooks a large patio area that includes a spa, an outdoor shower and a barbecue area. The patio is another space that invites you outside to enjoy the surrounding gardens.
The Flora of Manawai Gardens
The sellers of this property began their transformation of the landscaping around the property eight years ago. They were dilligent in their search for the best botanicals. They chose plantings for fragrance, rarity and health. The owners invested similar effort in identifying the location for each planting. The placement process took into account view planes, the health of the plant and both aromatic and visual considerations.
In addition to the flowers and hardwoods, there is a citrus orchard above the cottage and plenty of space for a vegetable and herb garden.
The Future Potential of Manawai Gardens
The zoning for the property is agricultural. That means there is potential to add another residence to the property. There is an ideal oceanview building site towards the top of the lot. Even with a new home, there is still room to expand upon the existing gardens.

Historic Home in Haiku
The Maui Real Estate Team just listed one of Maui’s oldest standing homes . Originally built in the 1870s, the original owner of the five bedroom, five bathroom home was a doctor for the Plantation. The home’s various owners restored and updated the structure throughout the years. It is extremely rare to see homes on Maui from this era still standing let alone offered for sale.
The Living Space of 555 Haiku Road
The home is entered via a spacious covered lanai. This is a beautiful perch to take in the property’s impressive grounds and enjoy the trade winds. From the lanai, you enter a large living area. The home’s high ceilings give the home a sense of grace spaciousness. A living room off the entry includes wall to ceiling glass windows and sliders that open to a large deck.
The kitchen of the home is well suited to hosting gatherings of friends and family with a large range and an oversized sink well suited to entertaining larger groups.
The five bedrooms in the home each have their own character. All five bedrooms also include ensuite bathrooms.
The home has many features and small details that you won’t find in new construction. Crystal door knobs, a clawfoot tub in one of the bathrooms, built-ins galore and custom woodwork that frames doorways are all quality touches.
The Grounds of 555 Haiku Road.
The Old Hawaii Style evident in the house is just as apparent as you stroll the grounds of this 1.2 acre property. A majestic mango tree, towering royal palms, numerous fruit trees and a small fish pond highlight the landscape. A barbecue gazebo is another good spot to enjoy the beautiful grounds.
This home is currently a very active bed and breakfast. In Maui County, Bed and Breakfasts licenses are not transferable. That said, it is possible for a future owner to apply for a new Bed and Breakfast license. Buyers interested in operating a bed and breakfast should do their due diligence with the county planning department.
555 Haiku Road is located within walking distance of the Haiku Town Center. There you will find popular local restaurants like Nuka and Colleens. There is also a yoga studio, fitness center, a small grocery store and other amenities. The property is less than ten minutes to Ho’okipa Beach Park.
