Huelo cottage description

The Lilikoi One Bedroom House sits on two acres directly adjacent to miles of undeveloped jungle. It is an earth-friendly low-environmental impact cottage.

**Highlights**

- Stand-alone property on two acres -
You are the only home on this property.

- Raised high on stilts with a treetop jungle view
(and a peek-a-boo view of the ocean from the lanai & dining area)

- Sleeps up to four adults comfortably

- High-Speed Wireless Internet Access

- Outdoor banana shower is a guest favorite!

- Full-Sized Washer & Dryer

- Ample supply of quality bath & beach towels, linens and pillows

- Weber 'Smokey Joe' Portable BBQ & Tools (Perfect for the lanai or beach!)

- Environmentally friendly solar generated power & rainwater catchment (with backup generator just in case.)

- New flat-panel LED HDTV Monitor Supports Most Media Devices (with DVD, USB, HDMI, PC (D Sub), DVI, Optical, Component & Composite Inputs)

**DETAILS**
The house is at the edge of the rainforest, perched atop a hill overlooking the jungle. I can't begin to describe in words how awesome it is to sit out on the lanai or in the living room listening to all the birds in the jungle.

The lanai has two tables and the stars are spectacular at night. When evening rains come in, the lanai is such a spectacular spot to watch the raindrops stream though the sunlight falling into the jungle. (Most of our rain comes from trade wind cycle, typically blowing in overnight or later in the afternoon. Since trade wind clouds come from the east, the afternoon sun still shines brightly, giving use plenty of rainbows!)

If you can tear yourself away from the lanai, the inside dining table with high pub-style swivel chairs brings you right into the view.

Bedroom with queen bed, plenty of light, large closet with shelves, hanging and luggage space.

Open and airy living room with queen sofabed, CD-Player w/our favorite Hawaiian music and new Flat-Panel TV. Large windows are everywhere, bringing the outside inside.

Full kitchen with granite counter tops, double-stainless-steel-sink & fridge. Fully stocked with amenities such as microwave, coffee maker, wine rack, blender, water blubber, dishes, glassware, tableware, pots, pans, knives, etc.

Bathroom with tub and shower. A second outdoor shower.

**BEACHES**
These are our favorite of the uncrowded, non-touristy North Shore beaches. Once you've been to these miles of serene uncrowded beaches, going to hotel beaches seems silly :)

- Baby Beach
Great for kids, lap swimmers and beachcombers. Also very scenic.

- Ho’okipa Beach Park

You can watch some of the best windsurfers in the world here. Also has very regular surf breaks.

- Baldwin Cove

Calm cove, great for escaping the wind when the sand is blowing!

- Baldwin Beach Park

A long, sandy beach with plenty of parking, lifeguards and facilities.

- Tavares Beach
Popular with locals. Good surf break, too.

- Kuau Cove aka Beach at Mama’s Fish House
A small tide pool beach. Kids love exploring here.

- Paia Bay

Great for advanced boogie boarders. Also has a good surf break.

- Paia Secret Beach

Secluded and clothing optional.

- Jaws

In the winter you can watch big-wave surfers defy sanity!

**LOCATION**
Our location is the perfect place for visitors who want to escape the pre-package touristy resort areas that for a more genuine experience, yet still be based centrally enough to day-trip all over our spectacular island.

Lilikoi Jungle Cottage is a quiet, eco-friendly off-grid escape in a very special valley on the North Shore of Maui. You can walk right into the jungle from your private cottage, swim in natural pools and waterfalls, walk, hike or relax at dramatic cliff side ocean vistas, take yoga classes from our neighbors, world renowned yoga teachers, or even experience a guided hike of areas tourists rarely experience from the author of Maui Guide Book.

The kind of folks who will love what we have to offer are active people who enjoy uncrowded beaches, waterfalls, exploring, adventures, hiking, dramatic scenery and peace and quiet - while still having the option to day-trip into the resort areas when the mood calls. If that sounds like you, you just found a place to stay that will add so much more to your Maui experience!

          Location

          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.

          Twin Falls is practically our neighbor.

          The Bamboo Forest is just 4 miles away.

          We're close to Pa'ia, and Makawao.

          The Road to Hana begins here.

          Closer + avoid traffic bottlenecks to Kula, Ulapalakua and Haleakala Park vs. staying in resort areas.

          About the same drive-time to Iao Valley and Kahului as the resorts are.

          About twenty minutes more to drive to either resort area vs. staying in one and driving to explore the other (and you should explore it all!)

          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-do!

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2007

          About the owner: I'm an author and live on a neighboring property. I discovered Maui was my soul's long-lost home in the 90's and whenever we came back home to visit, we found this area to be the best home base for our adventures around the island. When we moved to Maui in 2004, we spent three years searching for the perfect place, renting and moving five times to feel out different areas before we found the perfect location in 2007. We have had hundreds of thrilled visitors over these years, and hope to add you as one too!

          Why the Owner Chose Huelo:
          The location is perfect for our active family of six. We can walk out our door and be swimming in waterfall pools or hiking jungle in minutes. We can drive to a dozen beautiful uncrowded beaches in 15-20 minutes. All the rest of this spectacularly perfect island is an easy reach.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Being an author and with four active kids - we're all over Maui, all the time. Having this location as our home base has been perfect for our busy family because it allows us to experience living in the serenity of the true, natural Hawaii while still being within easy reach of everything the island has to offer.
