Check us out on HGTV's show " House Hunters".
What fun to be selected as the Inn to host a segment for an episode of
"House Hunters" Season 99 episode 9.
A couple searches for the perfect home to begin their own bed and breakfast here on Maui. Our Inn was the film location where the agent interviewed the couple, (located on our outside lanai under that huge Mango tree). Haiku Plantation Inn was selected to represent a true Hawaiian style professional B&B. The couple received a short tour along with a few tips on how to be a professional innkeeper.
A lovely showcase for our B&B. We certainly were honored to be the Inn selected as a showcase for Hawaiian and Aloha spirit & to represent Maui.
Mahalo for the opportunity, and we appreciate the honor to be involved in a National TV show.
Thanks again HGTV!
Be sure to see us this 2015 summer season.

Homemade strawberry guri guri
Haiku Plantation Inn Blog: June 1, 2014 .. subject keiki graduation and yummy guri guri
Ahh.. this time of year between spring and the onset of summer is my favorite time of year.. well actually it is all my favorite time of year. But now is the time when the crowds are waning and the island is alive with local life and that special time of year.. graduations. Our keiki and young adults are moving forward with their life journeys and all their ohanas and friends are so proud to be a part of the celebrations. I had the opportunity to attend the Hana School Fifth Grade graduation last week. As I drove out to Hana I was reminded why again I love this island so much.. not only the beauty of our nature but the majesty of our local culture. The drive of course was spectacular but the honor of being present while the keiki spoke and sang on stage to the delight of their families was awe inspiring and truly brings you back down to earth and home with the knowledge of what is important in life... our children.. the keiki... are the future and the culture so important to retain. Hana is a special place... Maui is the magic island... In celebration my 5th grade little buddy and I made some home made strawberry guri guri.. such a sweet treat local style. How could life be any better than this? Next time you stay with us here at the Inn... just remind me to stir up a batch of homemade guri guri.. the frozen delightful treat.... I know those keiki nearby will come running... and our guests just might decide this is a new fav treat!
Guava Time On Maui! The Haps at Haiku Plantation Inn August 2014
A favorite treat.. guava jam and jelly. Today I am taking my 5 gallon bucket and headed to an undisclosed area where the guava grow wild (actually an invasive plant) for some picking and gathering, since it is jam and jelly making time here at the Inn. The kitchen will come to life with cooking pots, canning supplies and friends helping to create a few local delicious treats.. jam, jelly, syrup. Yum! The aroma will drift through the house and call our guests to the table later on this evening as they have the opportunity of sampling a bit of the finished product on local made Portuguese Sweet Bread. So ono.. and how better is that? Oh that is correct, this evening we are having a cook out with friends and the main course will be fresh caught island fish. The guys hiked out yesterday and brought back just enough (no take what you can not eat or share) from their secret beach.. a long long trek but worth the exhaustion because the water is so clean and deep.. the fish tastes then so much better.. It is going to be another beautiful day here on Maui. Owning and running the Inn may be hard work and a labor of love but the pleasure of being with friends, family and our guests in this environment is such a wonderful experience and way of life. Hope you get to come visit!
"Local Knowledge" Sandy Beck Camou for Lonely Planet Maui 2014
November 1, 2014
I am thrilled ,that after all these years working in the tourism and hospitality industry, to be recognized as someone who still has the enthusiasm to share my information and love of our island with visitors. Lonely Planet is a wonderfully informative guide book, which shows more responsibly in the type of information that is selected to be printed for visitors. It has always been my pleasure to work in the hospitality industry. We as a ohana, hope to welcome guests to our home and bed and breakfast for many years to come and be able to share our love of the island, it culture and the beautiful experiences large and small. It is often the little places and local flavor that make the largest impression. Mahalo to Lonely Planet.. such an honor.
