Pali Uli Gardens, established in 1982 and mentioned in Conde' Nast, Best Places to Kiss on Maui and Frommers, we can guarantee you a visit you will remember forever.

Located on the northshore of Maui, off the beaten path, just 15 minutes from the charming coastal town of Paia with its great shops and fabulous restaurants. The Paia Fish Market, for just-off-the-beach-casual lunch must be on your list, and of course everyone must treat themselves to dinner at Mama's Fish House on the most beautiful beach setting in the world with five star dining!

The Waterfall House has been the secret hideaway for musicians, writers, celebrities and politicians over the years. With fresh trade winds, blue skies, billowing clouds, breath taking views you will start to melt the minute you arrive.

The Waterfall House is an architecturally stunning home designed for an intimate experience for a couple looking for a distinct, private and original location. Ideal for a Honeymoon, Special Anniversary, Romantic Tryst or an Artistic Retreat. The private oceanside decks, private pool, landscaped private outdoor shower and open spectacular floor plan of this magnificent home guarantees a unique living experience even the most sophisticated traveler will enjoy. With a dozen sliding glass doors, granting fabulous views from every angle, you will most definitely feel that nature is right at your finger tips.

Designed with sacred geometry principles, the six intersecting octagons and vine covered pillars give the Waterfall House a palatial milieu. With floors of cream colored marble from Bandung, Java and sky lit rooms you will bask in the uplifting sensations accentuated by the vaulted ceilings and tranquil Asian decor.

On the leeward side of the Waterfall House is your private pool area. It is heavily landscaped for your seclusion and perfectly protected from the trade winds.

The gas BBQ and poolside patio dining area are perfect for tropical evenings and late night dips in the pool. Lounging furniture is thoughtfully located for sunning by the pool and the ocean side of the house.

The kitchen has a fabulous coastline view all the way to Hana. The counter tops are a beautiful jade colored marble. Kitchen is fully equipped for meal preparation. We supply some spices and all kitchen utensils. There is a dining room with half bath just off the kitchen.

The master sleeping area is unique and inviting with a 7' round bed set into a marble pedestal supported by four pillars. Just steps away is the sunken marble bath tub, jade colored marble vanity counter tops and marble and tile outdoor shower, landscaped for privacy and an exotic experience under the warm sun or under the night canopy of stars.

On the ocean side is your private in-ground hot tub, just a few feet from the cliffs edge to give you the best ocean view. We often get late afternoon light showers that provide magical rainbows, best viewed while soaking in the hot tub!!

The living area is open and casual. Graced with a Yamaha Grand Piano, views out to the ocean, a fire place, large Flokati rug and generous bean bag chairs for fully relaxing. With hundreds of Dishnetwork TV, movies and music channels you can stay in touch with the world or tune it out. CD/DVD player, iPod dock and MiFi to boost your WiFi needs is available. Most cell service works in this area and there is a land line provided for the Waterfall House.

The view from all three decks of the Waterfall House is looking east so you'll have spectacular sunrises and you can see the 175' Hanehoi waterfall flowing down through the gorge of our 22 acre Nature Reserve, out to the ocean. It takes a solid day of rain for the waterfall to really thunder. From November to April the whales are here and you can spot them from your deck! Come during the full moon to watch it rise right out of the ocean in front of Pali Uli. In the evening while star gazing, watch for pueo (Hawaiian owls) that soar over the gorge.

Onsite massage is available through Aloha Spa Maui. Call to set up your appointment and to choose the style of body work desired.

Yoga is taught five mornings a week next door at Hale Akua Garden Farms. Classes are offered by Shiva who has been a yoga instructor for over 30 years. Donations are appreciated.

Pali Uli Gardens is now part of Hale Akua Garden Farms where courses in organic farming and perma-culture are available. Pali Uli Gardens is proud to be able to offer a 'greener' stay on Maui with our solar power projects, recycling and eco-friendly cleaning products, all within the heart of a harmonious organic farming community. The Waterfall House is hidden within the heart of the farming that takes place in the out lying acreage. You can tour the fields with a farm manager to learn more. Fresh produce can be purchased on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings.

Your stay at Pali Uli Gardens helps to subsidize the farming school and the educational programs available for the farmers and organic food producers of the future.

Manager info

About: Pali Uli Gardens staff has been here for many years and is full of Aloha and happy to be of service.

Why Haiku:
This area of Haiku, called Huelo, is a rural area with the up country Maui jungle feel. We are about half way to Hana but not all the way into the rainy part. We are right at the part of the Hana Hwy that starts to get windy and narrow, and where we get just enough rain to keep things green all year round.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Pali Uli Gardens is built right in the center of the Hanehoi gorge and is perched on the cliffs over looking the pristine Nature reserve and the wide Pacific Ocean, all the way to Hana. It's an extraordinary location that everyone loves and wants to returns to.
