About Alejandro Goya
We are originally from Argentina. In the early '90s, my brother Francisco Goya and I decided on moving to Maui and pursuing our windsurfing dream. Maui offers one of the most consistent wave sailing conditions in the world. I'm also an artist and love nature, so as an artist it is easy to get inspired by beautiful Maui. In 1993 my mother purchase this amazing property; lucky us! One great benefit of our vacation rentals is meeting people from around the world who come to experience our beautiful and unique land. I feel beyond fortunate about being able to call our little spot in paradise my home; it is peaceful yet near everything I could possibly need and want, especially windsurfing. More thing about myself and happy to share with you: finding the best in people inspires me greatly, and be thankful I need less and live happier. “When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” - Aldo Leopold, 1948
Alejandro Goya purchased this Studio in 1993
Why Alejandro Goya chose Haiku-Pauwela
Our property offers a great sense of grounding, getting back in touch with the earth and ourselves. By just sleeping or standing on this land, people's 5 senses come back to life and time seems to slow down a bit. Staying here with your loved ones, family and friends will most likely help you connect or reconnect. Mana Aina for me is a happy place, where everyone comes to have a good time, get together and feel in touch with nature, our lovely pets [goats, chickens, bunny and cat roaming freely] and Maui. Geographically Mana Aina is located in the heart of Haiku, where it is peaceful yet close to all the fun, great beaches, shopping, and restaurants. Also, what's amazing about this area is that it is all agricultural land and the properties are large offering lots of space, peace, and privacy. In some ways purchasing this property was made possible by my grandparents whom I love and respect for who they were and their life accomplishments. Living here reminds me of the time I had with them and how much a part of the word home they mean to me. So I'm beyond grateful to my mother for having the vision and courage to buy this wonderful land, and for giving me the opportunity to share this spot in paradise with thousands of wonderful guests from around the world.

We appreciated the attractive, well supplied studio, which was a peaceful place to return to after a day of tourism.
Very nice and calm place in the Haiko Hills...
We loved our peaceful cottage! It was very clean and comfortable on the inside and loved sitting outside in the mornings enjoying the peaceful grounds and the chickens! We would definitely come back again and recommend!
Wonderful, quiet, clean and highly recommend!! Will be looking to stay here again for future Maui trips!
Although our property is very secluded and quiet, just 6 minutes away you will find some nice restaurants and shopping for groceries as well. If you enjoy organic and healthy foods, Mana Foods (our local grocery store in Paia) is just a short 10 minutes drive from here as well as the beach and a number of activities/adventures. The closest place where you may enjoy a yummy casual breakfast or lunch is at the Pauwela Cannery, a surfers' and windsurfers' favorite. The Haiku Cannery does have more eating out options than the Pauwela Cannery, but it is 3 minutes further away. At the Haiku Cannery I very much enjoy the sushi at Nuka and the amazing burgers, pizza, pasta, salads and cold beer at Colleen's Restaurant. Around the corner from Nuka there is Maui Kombucha Bar, don't miss it! There is also Vegout for vegetarians across from Nuka. By the way, all these places are right next to the Haiku Post Office. There are also some more restaurants in this area and many good options to explore, but before I'm finished, I want to mention the Taco Truck and Tai wagon restaurant! If you are staying with us during wave season, you may want to visit Jaws to see tow surfing and windsurfing pushed to the extremes on some of the biggest rideable waves on the planet. Just drive straight down from our place towards the ocean, but make sure you are on a 4 wheel drive vehicle, especially if muddy conditions! If you enjoy hiking through amazing and unique places, you might want to visit the Makawao Forest; just a beautiful 20 min drive from here. Also, if you are feeling adventurous, on the way to the Makawao forest a fun place to go is the Piiholo Ranch Zip Line. On the way down from the forest you may want to stop at Makawao Town to check out some locally owned stores or for a bite to eat. By the way, I love the sandwiches at Casanovas in Makawao. There are some small art galleries there too if you happen enjoy painters who portray Maui's landscapes. Downhill from Makawao is Paia, a cool place patched with boutiques, restaurants and my favorite health food store Mana Foods. I would highly encourage shopping for groceries at Mana Foods, once you go there you'll see what I mean. The beach is also right in front of Paia and if you are up to a long walk on the beach, start right there and walk or swim towards Kahului; pass the rocks and coves and keep walking... also great for a jog or run. If you want to check out some great streams and pools, Iao Valley is your spot hands down. This area is also known for it's amazing hikes. It is above Old Wailuku. This is a personal favorite and place where I like to take friends while they are visiting Maui.
