Property description

We are the Hidden Jewel on the North Shore in Huelo and once you find us ~ you have found Shangri-la ~ the lost paradise.

This is an extraordinary place full of genuine Hawaiian Mana (blessings). It can be felt the moment you set foot on our lush green land. Whether you are seeking sanctuary, looking to write the next chapter of your life, or are simply on vacation, come explore sustainable living at Maui's 5-star certified Eco-Retreat, voted 'The Greenest Spot on Maui' and the proud recipient of the 'Platinum Green Leadership Award 2013 & 2014'. We are fully licensed and permitted since 2009 (GET/TAT W40484296-01, BBPH0003).

We believe if you found us you are meant to be with us. At our place you can escape from the places that are filled with tourists. Yes, this is the old Hawaii you have been looking for: exotic, wild, waterfalls, hiking trails, lush and bamboo forests next to the ocean and yet only 15 min away from shopping centers and restaurants. Get ready to embrace yourself to explore an inner and outer journey. We offer Yoga classes in the morning by donations.

Our Eco House, the Thai Hale, is truly a state of the art building, elegant, comfortable and inspiring. Created entirely from the lumber of the future - bamboo and decorated with art from many parts of the world. Choosing our place you are automatically reducing your carbon footprint. Yes, when staying with us, you are contributing to the sustainable green living movement that is expanding daily. Thank you for considering our place.

Parents: We are not the perfect place for small children. Children older than 5 years enjoy learning 'living ecologically safe' and we welcome their participation in the garden.
We are able to extend an extra fold out bed for a 4th person, but only in need. We prefer 2 people or 3 only in the cottage. For the 3rd person we charge a daily utility fee of$35.

At our off-grid Maui Retreat you'll enjoy: solar power, delicious well water, secluded oceanfront property with amazing waterfall trails ending at a lagoon for swimming, temples to meditate, create or relax in. It is simply a very romantic setting. We offer luxurious and unique accommodations. Close in proximity to Haiku town, Ho'okipa beach, and the picturesque beach town of Pa'ia. We are proud of what we have achieved in the past 25 years consciously carving and creating out of raw jungle a template for future sustainable living. Congratulations on choosing our land to offset your carbon footprint! BBPH 2009/003

Car: Recommended

This side of the island holds the lush jungle, the waterfalls, the agricultural part and the famous road to Hana. Certainly a must see - the aliveness of Mother Nature and her bounty. Enjoy the world class surfers from around the word at Ho'okipa Beach. Stroll through the picturesque town of Paia, visit the top of the line organic grown local shop called 'Mana' and get a feeling where the locals hang out. The small shop owners all have unique offerings, beauty salons, coffee shops and great small restaurants are a pleasurable way to spend some time on our side. During winter time the whales are back and as this is a small island everything is easy to reach including the white sand beaches in Paia. As this part of the island does not have any hotels, only a few permitted B&Bs, you will experience the lifestyle in Hawaii and get a real taste of what it means to live here. Welcome to our side of Paradise.

Why the Owner Chose Haiku:
This land was known as 'Resting Place of Mature Souls' by the ancient Hawaiians. This area has always been a special place to leave your daily schedule behind and escape into a world of fast manifestation, where spirit can hear you and your questions get answered. And, we did not choose, the land chose us. We do not own ~ the land owns us! We are only the care takers for our short time on this planet. We are committed to leave a legacy to our children so they can carry forward what we have been given from Mother Earth... the rights to have clean water, fresh air, healthy soil and living in harmony with nature and each other.

The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
Exploring an elctro-magnetic free field lets you discover deeper and resting sleeps, dreams and you may experience an exhilarating feeling of well-being in a few days. Our bodies will receive the deserved rest from the hectic and constant buzz around us. Your soul can rest in a tranquil environment that has been held in a spiritual way for many years. Simply, come and experience. As Albert Einstein once said 'Knowingness is nothing but experience'. We are ready for you.
