The love of nature. Lush, green rainforests. The road to Hana. Waterfalls, natural pools and beautiful warm sandy beaches. The air kissed by a symphony of tropical flowers. These are some of the sirens that keep pulling us back home to Maui.

If you know these same sirens, you probably just found a place that you'll never forget.

Welcome to Our Home!

We couldn't be better strategically located to take frequent day-trips and thoroughly explore the endless natural sites and attractions on the road to Hana, while still being within a short drive to world-class beaches. At the same time we're within moderate drive times to all the rest Maui has to offer.

Where: North Shore of Maui, twelve miles past Pa'ia you turn off of the world-famous Road to Hana and drive another mile down a winding country road toward the ocean. (We are 18 miles from the Kahului Airport.)

Location Highlights vs. Resort Areas::

  • Much closer to Hana, Pa'ia, and Makawao.

  • Closer + avoid traffic bottlenecks to Kula, Ulapalakua and Haleakala Park.

  • About the same drive-time to Iao Valley and Kahului.

  • About twenty minutes more to drive to either resort area vs. staying in one and driving to explore the other.

  • Drives on this side of Maui are incredibly beautiful, enjoyable and scenic, making day-tripping all over the island an absolute pleasure (and a must!)

small waterfall
  Huelo shoreline
Dozens of natural pools and waterfalls make their way down the mountain to the ocean. These waterfalls and pools aren't in the tourist guidebooks, so you will almost always have them all to yourself!   The shoreline here is dramatic, there are several walks and hikes along the shoreline and down to the ocean.
Jungle Love   lookout
Unspoiled jungle backs up to the property just steps from your door.   One of several cliffside lookout platforms within walking distance.
Goin' to da pool!   pineapple
Our boys going to swim in one of the many natural pools & waterfalls that flow one into the next through our valley.   Fruit and flowers grow everywhere, including many varieties of heliconia, hibiscus, ginger and banana. We also have pineapple, coconut, lilikoi, guava, papaya, surinam cherry and mangoes.
In the winter when the surf is up, you may fall asleep to the sound of waves pounding the rugged shoreline.


In 15-20 minutes you can alsobe surfing, sunbathing or swimming at some of the most dramatic, beautiful and uncrowded beaches in Maui.

A central home base for touring all over Maui, The Road to Hana also begins here.

The Road to Hana is within convenient and easy reach, so you'll be able to truly experience this incredible Eden while visitors staying in the resorts are forced to settle for a drive-by with the majority of sights.
