THE INN IS CLOSED
Situated on three lush tropical acres in the best part of Haiku, Maui, overlooking pastures and the Haleakala volcano to the south and the blue ocean of the North Shore to the north, the Historic 1921 Manager’s Residence for the Haiku Pineapple Cannery has been fully restored as the Haiku Cannery Inn B&B. Secluded yet centrally-located.
The Haiku Cannery Inn B&B is in a historic bungalow that is listed on the State of Hawaii’s Register of Historic Sites and by the Historic Hawaii Foundation. This home was built by the Haiku Fruit & Packing Company for its Manager. The Haiku Fruit & Packing Company was started in 1903 by David Dwight Baldwin*. The Company built the home in 1920-21.
A century ago, Haiku was one of the largest towns on Maui. It was home to the Haiku Fruit & Packing Company and the American Can Company. They operated a large cannery facility in Haiku to can the pineapple grown in the surrounding lands. Canned pineapple was transported to Kahului for shipping to ports foreign and domestic.
Your hosts at the Haiku Cannery Inn B&B are a kama’aina family with three generations in the Islands that has owned and lived at the property for over 40 years.
The home is an architectural classic with casual Hawaiian plantation charm.
The property features selected furniture, flooring and woodwork hand-crafted by our family from local woods harvested and milled on Maui. Some of the trees were harvested right here on the Inn’s property.
Also featured is artwork from local Maui artists and artisans, many of whom live nearby.
A wild jungle driveway is the entrance to the property which is on a flag lot set well back from the road.
Three lush tropical acres with a lovely variety of plants await you. When in season, have fun picking your own papaya, coconut, lychee, surinam cherry, avocado, banana, allspice, orange, tangerine, lemon, lime, Hawaiian chili, grapefruit.
The property is surrounded by forest on the west side, pasture on the south and east sides, with a view to the ocean on the north side.
We look forward to hosting you here at the Haiku Cannery Inn, your home away from home.
