Frequently Asked Questions
  • Do you have to rent the venue for the whole day?
    Absolutely not. Haiku Mill offers smaller time blocks during the week (Monday through Thursday) for couples who may only want to hold a ceremony and/or cocktail hour, or a smaller wedding and dinner reception, for groups under 80 people; or to take photos, or host brunch or rehearsal dinners. Please note that weekday events must conclude by no later than 8:00pm. Haiku Mill offers wedding package options with its in-house planning team, Pua Le'a & Co. Fridays and Saturdays are reserved exclusively for full day events that end at 10pm.
  • How much does it cost to rent Haiku Mill?
    The cost to rent Haiku Mill’s property is based on the amount of time you would like it for, as well as the day of the week. Please note that any packages with Pua Le'a & Co. may have a slightly different price structure than what is in this cost sheet.
  • Why does a full day event have to end by 10pm, and a weekday event end by 8pm?
    Maui County requires that Haiku Mill stops all noise by 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and weekday events at 8pm, due to County-enforced noise ordinances. This is typical at the majority of outdoor venues across the island.
  • Can I hold my date at Haiku Mill?
    We are happy to put a soft hold on a date at Haiku Mill for you, without a deposit. If we receive another inquiry for the same date, we will reach out to you with a week's notice to confirm continued interest. If we do not hear from you within 7 days from the time of our initial email to you, the date will be released to the next party without providing any further notice. If you express continued interest you will have 72 hours from the time you send us written confirmation to sign your contract.
  • How much does it cost if I want to have my photos taken at Haiku Mill but I'm getting married somewhere else?
    We offer a 1.5 hour minimum photoshoot, which begins upon arrival on property and ends on your departure off property. Most people think they will only need 30-45 minutes, but believe us - once you start shooting in all the amazing spots around the property you and your photographer are not going to want to stop. This also allows time for makeup and hair touch ups, getting into your gown if need be, enjoying a toast under the mango tree, and time for your photographer to arrive before you to scout the property and set up equipment. Please find current pricing here.
  • What is the availability of the venue for 2020-2019?
    Maui County enforces certain parameters on the days and length of events we can hold weekly to ensure our residential community is kept peaceful for all local residents. Venue availability will depend on what type of event you would like to hold and until what time in the day or evening.
  • Why would I want to hold my wedding on a weekday? I thought everyone held them on Saturdays.
    Typically, most people hold their weddings on weekends when they get married close to home, because friends and family have to work during the week. But when you are holding a destination wedding, most guests have taken the week off for a vacation. Holding your wedding in the middle of the week helps give your guests a few days to arrive, get settled in their hotels and adjust to the time change before the big day. If they have taken a week-long vacation they then have the days following the wedding to relax and enjoy the island, and have time to travel home again. Many guests appreciate not having to leave the Sunday morning after a Saturday wedding.
  • What is the venue's capacity?
    Haiku Mill can accommodate a maximum of 100 people on a Friday or Saturday, and a maximum of 80 people on a Monday-Thursday.
  • Where is Haiku Mill located?
    Haiku Mill is located in the small town of Haiku on the island of Maui in the state of Hawaii.
  • What is the weather like in Haiku?
    Haiku is located on the north shore of Maui, which experiences rain on a daily basis. These are usually in the form of passing showers lasting anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes during the day, but Haiku can often receive heavy rainfall in the evenings. As part of the contingency plan, all full-day events are required to rent one large tent to cover the open foyer and dining area, located inside the Mill. Additional tents may be required for large groups. The cost of these tents is not included in your site fee and must be ordered through Haiku Mill to ensure installation and tie downs are properly and safely performed due to the delicate nature of the property and structure. You will be charged by Haiku Mill separately from your site fee. Please inquire about pricing.
  • Can we pick any vendor we want, or use a friend?
    Haiku Mill works with a group of carefully selected preferred vendors. These vendors understand the historic and delicate nature of the property, have experience working events at this unique location, possess the required insurance that enables them to work on the property and, most importantly, are trusted and professional.

    If you would like to have one of your friends, family or trusted professionals work on the day of your wedding, Haiku Mill allows one vendor that is not on their hand-selected list per event. (Please note: this does not apply to Haiku Mill's wedding packages, only to custom wedding and dinner receptions). Prior to being approved, this vendor must provide all the required insurance documents directly to the office and additional fees may be required. Vendors in the following categories may not be brought from outside sources and must be selected from the Haiku Mill preferred vendor list: coordinators, caterers (including food trucks), bar services, tent providers, transportation, valet, portable washrooms, lighting, DJ and A/V services, draping and rigging.
  • Can our guests park at Haiku Mill?
    Due to limited parking on site, you will have limited parking spaces for full day events due to vendor requirements for parking. Typically, this number ranges from 4-10 spaces, depending on the event.
  • How do we get our guests to Haiku Mill if we need more than the number of permitted parking spaces?
    Haiku Mill will book shuttles for your guests with one of our preferred transportation vendors. These costs are not included in your site fee and will be billed separately. You will be provided with the size of shuttle and style available for you to choose from. Typically our clients choose to have the wedding party drive themselves or hire a private chauffeured vehicle, while the remaining guests are transported by shuttle. Please note: there are restrictions on the size of vehicles allowed at Haiku Mill.
  • Where should we stay on the island if we are hosting our wedding or event at Haiku Mill?
    We suggest you stay in Wailea, Kihei or Maui's beautiful Upcountry. Although the west side (Lahaina, Kannapali, Kapalua and Napili) is beautiful, there is only one highway in and out. If there is any delay on the highway it can lead to increased drive times, which may cause your guests to be late for your wedding or event. If you would like to explore that side of the island we suggest you move to a west side hotel after your wedding day or plan a day trip.
  • Can we schedule a tour of Haiku Mill?
    We'd love if you came to visit with us! If you would like to tour the venue and discuss the vision of your wedding day, please contact us to schedule an appointment.
