About this listing
Rainbow Lookout is part of Huelo Pt Lookout ... the place to be 'in nature' surrounded by lush tropical (organic) gardens. All set for romance ... candles ... lie in your Cal King bed and look at the stars thru the six foot overhead skylight!
Situated on Maui's spectacular north shore, this fairy-tale hideaway is the ideal honeymoon retreat ... it feels far away from tourist crowds, yet is only a 15 minute trip to the nearest great restaurant or grocery store. So lovely to come "home" at the end of a day ... and sometimes, you'll probably just to stay "home" right here, and relax! Perhaps you'll "eat in", picking some fresh herbs from our organic garden ...
Rainbow is a dramatic two story accommodation which has a feeling of privacy and seclusion ... Upstairs, a Cal King bed with six foot skylights overhead for star-gazing - (our stars are very bright here, far away from city lights)... two private balconies, one with gorgeous ocean views and the other over our beautiful pool ... And downstairs, two small sitting rooms (one with a couch/trundle so if you have an extra little one, we can make space for you) ... bathroom, wet bar, dining area leading out on to one of several private lanais with soothing waterfall gardens, barbecue, and your own private hot tub.
From Rainbow Lookout, you can see all the way up the north shore cliffs of Maui to Hana, and then the spectacular views just keep going ... over our orchard greenery and all the way up the slopes of Mt Haleakala, our 10,000 ft dormant volcano.
Our location is ideal for exploring the whole island - but you don't have to stay in a crowded tourist area to do it ... 20 mins to Paia or Makawao, 1 3/4 hours to Hana, 70 mins to Lahaina, 45 mins to Kihei, 1 1/2 hrs up to the top of Haleakala etc. Maui is small enough so that you can stay in one place and have the whole island at your fingertips!

Maui County is in the process of enforcing against illegal vacation rentals and we've heard from some guests who have lost their bookings at the last minute).

"Huelo" is just enough 'off the beaten path' for you to enjoy the 'real' Maui ... yet we have all the creature comforts like hot tubs and heated towel rails ... and it's only 15 mins to nearest restaurants and grocery stores.
You'll definitely need to rent a car for seeing the island.

We had a awesome time. It is an amazing place. Sharyn and her team are great. Everything was nicely decorated. Fresh fruits, even a chilled wine in the fridge were waiting for us. Also a crib and a highchair were provided for our little one. Thank you, Sharyn. We will definitely come again. Mahalo.
My wife and I chose this location for our 8 day honeymoon. After driving back and forth over the entire island, we're convinced that we happened to find the very best accommodations in Maui! Sharyn and Jeff were kind, responsive and accommodating, and the Rainbow Lookout was beautiful! I loved looking up at the stars through the huge skylights above the bed, and the private hot tub was just what we needed after a long day of exploring.
We loved this place. Our charming host greeted us in the driveway with the right amount of niceties to make us feel welcome but not enough to tire out two weary travelers, and guided us to our guest quarters with minimum ado.
The neighborhood was quiet and quaint, words can not do justice to the beauty of the house the yard or the rest of the tropical environment. The house was cozy yet very open, high windows, skylights, and numerous sliding doors opened us the view of the ocean , and the rhythmic cadence of the sea, and created the feeling of a garden patio rather than a closed in house, without any compromises on privacy.
What we loved the most was the attention to details, a water filter on the sink, flowers to brighten the already beautiful sitting room, a cozy table and chairs on both the patio and the balcony. Fresh condiments in the fridge in case one has forgotten one's own, a selection of DVDs in case one wants to watch a movie while dozing off at night. A pool, a hot tub a hot towel rack in the downstairs bathroom, two showerheads in both showers, a beautiful water feature outside the patio door.
The Honeymoon Lookout is hands down the most tranquil place I've ever vacationed. It's simply impossible not to love this place. and our host Sharyn Stone has a marvelous attention to small details that made settling in easy.
My partner and I fell in love on this trip. Rainbow Honeymoon It seems with the right person,Rainbow Honeymoon Lookout is an easy place to fall in love. We plan to return on our anniversary. We give it five stars!
This was a great, private spot. The unit's personal hot tub was gorgeous (the hosts had it warming for us when we arrived) and we had the pool all to ourselves. Sharyn also gave us great suggestions for upcountry attractions to visit on our second day. Charming little piece of paradise.

About the Host, Sharyn
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!
