Inside the Historic Hawaiian Haiku House You Can Finally Visit

This home has been a theme of curiosity echoed by island locals for a long, long time. The Haiku house has been an private estate to a succession of owners for decades. But things have changed, and now this home has opened its doors as a luxury vacation rental in May of this year. The property became in essence accessible to the public for the first time in its history.

Ocean-view pool deck and row of royal palms are the first impressions as you arrive at this place. The house was first deeded in 1849, then it came into the hands of Henry Baldwin, the founder of one of Hawaii’s biggest sugar operations. The Baldwin family built the house primly, so also they are credited for the fine collection of exotic trees that punctuate the estate’s 20 acres.

But that’s not all, the house had 3 more owners that shaped the home and the property in their own ways, but the Chan family lead to its most recent luxurious renovation and vacation rental. Today, the property can accommodate 18 to 20 guests across nine suites and also features a screened-in lanai, full citrus orchard, banyan-shaded dining platform and ocean-vista swimming pool.

You will fall in love in this property the moment you step in! Take this photo tour with us around and in the luxurious property and enjoy the view!
