OUR SAFETY RESPONSE TO COVID-19:
Unlike typical Airbnb homestays, we are a licensed and permitted facility that has been operated by professionals since 1998, is properly insured, and complies with local, county, state and federal regulations. However, unlike typical hotels, you won’t have to fear close contact with other people on our property. Our land is vast and remote and features many outdoor places (and yes, nature rules)! We are a safe haven where you can experience holistic healthy living. On the North Shore, we are blessed with trade-winds, so we have no need for air-conditioners. Our water is provided by a well with the most delicious alkaline water from the volcanic aquifer. We offer greens from our organic garden for purchase, along with our coconut kefir that will enhance your well-being.

On top of traditional cleaning procedures, we also clean each room with commercial Ozonator machines and essential oils. All linens are sanitized in a high-temperature wash and high-traffic areas are regularly sanitized. Hand sanitizer is available to guests and staff, and staff is required to regularly wash hands. We take our guest safety seriously and exercise extreme caution.

We are staffed by our family and community—because we all safely live together on the property as a community, we don’t wear face masks among each other. However, we will wear face masks when interacting with guests and will exercise social distancing. For example, our check-in is socially-distanced because we enjoy being able to welcome guests, show them around our beautiful property, and explain how to navigate a totally sustainable land. We do not require guests to wear face masks around the property but suggest that you wear a face mask when interacting with people you are not familiar with. We would appreciate it if you could bring your own face mask!

ABOUT BAMBOO TEMPLE:
It is built with the sacred geometry of the nautilus shell, which is a symbol of internal harmony and the beauty of nature. The spiral traces the journey of life, a passage that leads to the Source. This little jewel is peaceful, private, and offers an expansive view of rolling hills that drop off to the powerful ocean. The Bamboo Temple offers incredible views of the ocean and the famous Hana coastline, which you can enjoy with coffee or tea.

This incredibly picturesque shelter features a queen-sized bed, full kitchen, walk-in closet, and a very private outdoor shower with an ocean view. Lying in the bamboo poster bed, you will wake with the rising sun and revel in the most spectacular rainbows. Enjoy views of the stars and the Milky Way Galaxy as you lay in bed at night through our rooftop prism-shaped window. Our walls are decorated with hand-painted silk thankas and a small altar with sacred art that invites you to sit and contemplate.

This has also been a special place for many artists and spiritual teachers to surrender to the universal flow of creativity. For example, our dear friend Alex Grey stayed here with his wife, Allyson Grey, and painted ‘Lovers’ in this temple.

The Secret of the North Shore is the Trade Winds that keep the space at a comfortable temperature all the time. We are also blessed with early morning rains that not only keep our gardens lush but also cleanse and wash away the past. Staying in our Bamboo Temple is an elegant and memorable experience that will keep your Hawaii vacation forever etched in your heart.

Our hiking trails are safe and allow you to explore our amazing natural surroundings, and the vastness of our land allows you to be free. What are you waiting for?

ABOUT OUR PROPERTY:
All of our buildings are ecologically built and adorned with spiritual art and hand-crafted masterpieces from Pacific and Asian countries. We are surrounded by a lush jungle, ponds, flower gardens, fruit trees, and an easily accessible waterfall that 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 past our organic garden, agroforestry garden, chickens, countless species of flowers and plants, and enter our temples, where you can rest, relax and meditate. For the adventurer, our ocean trail is a moderately challenging cliff trail and that takes about a half-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. However, be sure to prepare with a good pair of hiking shoes, some snacks, a water bottle, and feel your feet—the trail can be very slippery after heavy rain. In the wintertime, whales can be spotted breaching from the viewpoints on this trail — even from your bed as well.

We offer yoga Monday through Friday mornings with a suggested $10 donation directly to the teacher. We also offer qi gong, shamanic night teaching once a week, meditation, personal coaching, onsite massage, as well as other special events and activities. If you would like to get married on Maui in an intimate setting, Kutira is a licensed wedding officiant by the State of Hawaii and would love to support you in this special event.

At Maui Eco Retreat You'll Enjoy:
- Being directly next to the ocean
- Beautiful hiking trails
- Waterfall lagoons
- Romantic setting
- Only 15 minutes from town
- Sunrise views
- Yoga and meditation classes

ABOUT OUR LOCATION:
We are situated on the North Shore of Maui, where you can experience the most exquisite sunrise over the ocean! While you can experience off-grid living here, we are just 40 minutes northeast of Kahului airport and 30 minutes from Paia, a wonderful, iconic beach town that is home to fantastic restaurants, boutiques, a health-food grocery store, internet cafés, bank/ATM, post office and lovely sand beaches where you can enjoy walks, picnics, sun, swimming, surfing and turtle watching! Located at the beginning of “The Road to Hana,” we are the ideal starting point for this quintessential Maui sight-seeing experience. We are in the heart of the island—true Hawaii—where you will receive a full, authentic experience of local living that is free from the pressures of tourism.
