This listing features our elegant and cozy Bamboo Temple. Our Bamboo Temple is both unique and historic. It is the first permitted bamboo structure in the entire United States. Built in the shape of a nautilus, this geometric form evokes tranquility and sacredness. Stone staircases lead to a large deck, and expansive windows looking out to the sea and the famous Hana coastline. The bamboo ceiling features a rooftop prism shaped window which crowns the centerpiece of the room, the bed. We are pioneers in researching sustainable lumber, the path to a ecological sustainable future.

From the bed, you can gaze at the stars at night or watch the sunrise over the ocean. This incredibly romantic shelter, which features a full kitchen equipped with gas stove, huge closet, and very private outdoor shower, is the perfect place for honeymooners from around the globe. Come celebrate your new adventure or find peace and solitude in this rejuvenating and ground-breaking haven.

*ONLY FITS 2 PEOPLE thank you

*Please note that our offices are closed during the weekend and our normal business hours are M-F 10am-2pm Hawaiian Standard Time. We are a small family owned retreat and will always respond to your request as soon as we are able. We greatly appreciate your understanding. Mahalo.

All of our buildings are ecologically built and are adorned with hand-crafted works of art from Pacific and Asian countries. Our rooms have ocean views, and we are surrounded by lush jungle, ponds, flower gardens, fruit trees, and a nearby waterfall (reached by a short downhill climb) which flows into natural pools for swimming from which you can gaze upon the breath-taking view of the valley.
Our land is a wonderful place to wander and explore: you can take a short walk passing the chickens, the homes of our bees, countless species of flowers and plants and stop by our temples, where you can rest, relax and meditate. For the adventurer, our ocean trail is a moderately challenging cliff trail and the hike takes about a half an hour to get down to the ocean. You will enjoy the wild beauty and the untouched nature of this piece of rural Maui, which is occasionally visited by dolphins and turtles, and in the wintertime, the whales can be spotted breaching from the rooms. But be sure to prepare with a good pair of hiking shoes, some snacks and feel your feet, the trail can be very slippery after a heavy rain.
Location: We are on the North Shore of Maui's sunrise, just 40 minutes north/east of Kahului airport, and 30 minutes from Paia Town (on the way from the airport), which has lots of great restaurants and boutiques, a large health-food grocery store, internet cafés, bank, ATMs, post office, and lovely public sand beaches for walks or jogs, lounging, picnicking, sun bathing, swimming and surfing. We are in the heart of the island, where you will receive a full of experience of local living and no large hotels and tourism. Nature calls!
Please let us know if there are specific activities or services that you are interested in, and we’ll be happy to get you connected!

  • Lage wunderschön und absolut nicht zu toppen. Das Konzept mit Nachhaltigkeit und ökologischem Anspruch gefällt uns gut. Die Inneneinrichtung ist leider sehr veraltet, die Schränke riechen muffig. Die Kissen waren sehr abgenutzt, verblichen und zum Teil mit Löchern. Der Vorrang des Himmelbetts war vielfach eingerissen. Hier sind Erneuerungen dringend nötig. Mit diesen Mängeln ist das Haus deutlich überteuert. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Der Ausblick aus dem Bamboo Temple war gigantisch und Der Blick bei Vollmond oder Sonnenaufgang phänomenal. Die Außenanlage ist mit viel Liebe gestaltet
