Enjoy panoramic ocean, cliff and mountain views from our romantic 'overgrown beach house' ... so easy to relax surrounded by luscious tropical colors, rustling coconut palm fronds and, of course, sparkling blues of the ocean all the way to Hana!
We're a perfect honeymoon hideaway! "Ocean Lookout", a fully permitted and LICENSED accommodation, is well named, with two hundred degree ocean and cliff views all the way along Maui's north shore cliffs to Hana. This gorgeous private suite is the top floor of our delightful 2 story home. (We leave the lower floor empty so you always enjoy full privacy and serenity). Also note - we're a 'green' accommodation - organic and sustainable, so you're doing yourselves and our planet a favor when you stay with us!
For an added fee, we can make the WHOLE HOUSE available for rental - just mention this when you inquire and I'll get back to you with a special offer - it's an extra $100 per night to double the size of your accommodation and include another GORGEOUS master suite - so 4 adults + kids). Please note, though, that the whole house option would only be available for a one week minimum.
Also note that we charge 13.42% tax, which you pay separately on arrival. (As I said, we are legal. Please don't risk staying in illegal rentals - you may lose those accommodations at the last minute, as Maui County is actively enforcing against unlicensed establishments).
We're 20 mins by car to the beautiful "local style" towns of Pa'ia and Makawao for great shopping, dining, beaches. Gorgeous tropical gardens, pool (shared), hot tub(private)... hammocks ... full kitchen ... huge teak dining table ... free wifi (for e mails only - not fast enough for streaming).
Ocean Lookout has a master suite with bathroom & dressing room, a fun kitchen with everything you could possibly want, a gorgeous dining room with magnificent teak table that comfortably seats 10, a living room to spread out in ... and, of course, wave crashing views from every room. (Just wait for whale season! It's spectacular!)
The whole house(Lookout House) is ideal for families, or couples traveling together. But if just two of you are traveling, then "OCEAN LOOKOUT" is plenty of space for you, and will save you a few dollars too.
Ocean Lookout/ or whole House may also be rented in co-ordination with our other accommodations, Rainbow & Star Lookouts and Haleakala Cottage, which are on the same property.
WE LOVE LAST MINUTE TRAVELERS ... PLEASE ASK ABOUT OUR SPONTANEOUS GETAWAY DISCOUNTS! :)
Please note: WE HAVE NO TV RECEPTION (but we leave a dozen cool DVD's for you and there's a great little video store 15 mins down the road). Our internet service isn't suitable for streaming, but more than adequate for e mails. Cell service can be spotty, but we provide a landline for your exclusive use in your cottage and all on-island phone calls are free.
We don't do daily maid service, but will be happy to arrange it at extra cost. You are welcome to exchange your towels in the guest laundry.
Our beautiful 44 ft" jungle pool" is shared but you rarely see anyone else at all as everyone is out exploring the island! And also, each accommodation is landscaped for absolute max privacy ... and has its own private hot tub, lanais and barbecue areas.
There is now a beautiful walk down to the top of the ocean cliffs!
Interaction with guests
Our guests love their privacy - but we're always happy to chat/ answer questions etc and guests have our personal cell #'s if we're off property. We love texts!
Other things to note
Free rainbows! Free wifi!! Free parking, no "resort fees"! free laundry! That's 'aloha'!
Our central location ensures that you have that 'away from it all' feel ... but it's only a 15 mins drive to nearest restaurants and grocery stores. We're very much for the independent, self sufficient, off-the-beaten-path traveler - one who delights in the 'real' Maui, rather than in the plastic tourist images.
We are licensed & permitted, so we will ask you to pay tax on arrival (13.42%)
Again, please note: WE HAVE NO TV RECEPTION (but we leave a dozen cool DVD's for you and there's a great little video store 15 mins down the road). Our internet service isn't suitable for streaming, but more than adequate for e mails. Cell service can be spotty, but we provide a landline for your exclusive use in your cottage and all on-island phone calls are free.
We make the security and privacy of our guests a priority and as such request that only registered guests use our facilities. If you would like non-registered guests to visit you while you are here, please make arrangements in advance of your arrival. Mahalo.

We ask that you leave our space tidy when you depart - all dishes washed, trash and recycling emptied into the bins at the laundry, and all food waste in the compost bucket ready for the chickens. Excessively dirty places on checkout will be assessed an additional cleaning fee at our discretion. If you need maid service during your stay - do let us know - and we can provide that for a negotiable fee.
We're a quiet retreat, so always ask that guests respect others' privacy and peace ... no amplified music etc. No smoking or drugs please.

My husband Jeff, and I, have lived in Maui since we fell in love with it in 1992. We'd stayed in B&B's all through England and Wales, and thought "Why would anyone want to stay a hotel?" We love the personal touches and we love being able to give people a 'real' experience of Maui.
In my 'spare' time, I write poetry, short stories and scripts - and I also perform in live theatre and theatre improv. Maui is fun!
