Cherie Attix restored this historic 1924 plantation-style home to its original charm, filling it with Hawaiian artwork, antique furniture (a giant oak armoire, wrought-iron bed frame, and vintage shutters repurposed as a headboard), and a generous dose of love. Although its residential neighborhood is unprepossessing, it’s a 5-minute walk from the shops and restaurants of Makawao, a 15-minute drive from beaches, and an hour’s drive from the top of Haleakala. The three pretty guest rooms have separate outside entrances and private bathrooms—two with claw-foot tubs. The Kona Wing is a two-bedroom suite with use of the kitchen. In addition to a daily continental breakfast, Cherie offers guests fresh eggs from her hens. Unlike many B&B operators, she allows 1-night stays—perfect for hikers wanting a head start on Haleakala in the morning—for the small surcharge of $15. Best of all: She sponsors a terrific “volunteer on vacation” program. Lend a hand at one of the dozen local organizations listed on her website and she’ll knock 5% off of your stay at Hale Hookipa.
