Huelo Point Lookout .. a private romantic hideaway on the magnificent North Shore of Maui, Hawaii is fully licensed and permitted (permit # BBPH 2009/0015). It may be rented either in its entirety (2bed/2 bath) or, if you're seeking a smaller, more intimate space, you might like to look at 'Ocean Lookout' (the top floor). We also have other small 'cottage' style accommodations available (starting at $235/ night plus tax), so we're an ideal honeymoon/romantic 'getaway' destination. Or, you might like to consider us for a larger family reunion (ask about our 4bd/4ba option).
We cater to the independent traveler - one who enjoys being able to prepare meals, do laundry etc ... you'll love our unique 'off-the-beaten-path' feel, combined with the luxuries of private hot tubs ... a swimming pool ... and views to die for. Written up in National Geographic Traveler as part of the 'real' Maui ... we continue to be just that. Here, it's easy to discover the joys of being a traveler, not just a tourist. Find old Hawaii ... it's here if you know where to look!
Huelo Pt Lookout is situated 400 yards back from the ocean, and 300 feet above the cliffs. The house floats in a dream setting ... ocean, sky, cliffs, rolling folds of hills, rain showers, rainbows, and a 10,000 foot mountain (Mt Haleakala - 'House of the Sun' - you'll love looking up the summit at sunset). Time is suspended in the primal beauty that is still to be found in Hawaii. What better place could there be to live your dream than in Maui? Prices from $235 a night plus tax (for the smaller cottage accommodation).
The 'Lookout House' has a comfy, casual, relaxed 'beach house' feel - a house that is made to be lived in and enjoyed. Your most difficult decision of the day may be in choosing which bed to sleep in - there's a king bed in the glass walled liviing room so you can wake up to an ocean sunrise and there's a second king bed in the master bedroom if you'd like to say good morning to our dormant volcano, often wreathed in early morning mist. Or perhaps you'll have fun deciding where to 'eat in' after you've prepared a meal in our well equipped kitchen - the dining room, with its huge honey-colored teak table, has panoramic views down the coastal cliffs all the way along Maui's North Shore to Hana. Or ... should you set up a romantic outdoor dinner on one of the lanais and enjoy the soft sunset light over the spectacular tropical gardens? Or tuck yourselves on to the little nook by the waterfall/lotus pond? Or take a cup of fragrant Kona coffee down to the hot tub? Or find the hammock strung between the Kissing Palms?
Then again you could simply throw some of our local fish on the barbecue. Try 'mahi' sautéed in a little butter with toasted macadamia nuts and just a squeeze of lime or lemon. Simple. Elegant. To be savored. The 'real maui' is still here ... come find it!
Or you may choose to splurge on your own private chef, light the outdoor lanterns, and prepare to be totally spoiled. Top it off with a dip in the pool or in your own private hot tub, or perhaps enjoy an in house massage. Choices, choices, choices. Our lovely house is designed to be as simple or as luxurious as you care to make it. Many of our guests love to make a fresh brew of Kona Coffee and wander down to their jacuzzi just in time to catch the sun rising out of the ocean over Huelo Point.

Each accommodation has private phone line and free Wifi. Please note there is no TV reception to speak of - we have video stores near by and we supply DVD players in each room, so it's very easy to snuggle up with a great movie! Of course, after a day spent by our lovely freeform 44ft 'jungle' swimming pool, you may never wish to leave! We have a wonderful 'away from it all' and 'off the beaten path' appeal ... yet we're only a 15 minute drive from fabulous restaurants and beaches. We're very much a private, romantic retreat ... ideal for a honeymoon or a special getaway. Peace ... privacy ... people come here to experience the spectacular 'nature' of tropical Hawaii, rather than be overrun by the more 'touristy' image of the islands. This, we say, is the 'real' Hawaii ... enjoy being a 'traveler' rather than a 'tourist'!...moreless

About the owner: Jeff is a retired dentist - now he specializes in metaphysical counselling, and is expanding his hypnosis practice into Subconscious Training. (Previously he used these skills in working with phobic patients in dentistry - but these skills have much wider applications and he's having fun expanding them).
Sharyn is an actress, writer, speech therapist, permaculturalist & interior decorator. At the moment, she's enjoying theatre improv and working on a one woman monologue show, which she'll perform in a few months.
We have one young son, Kai Nalu, aged 17. And also an older son, Adrian, who lives in England with his lovely German wife, Antje and their 2 totally cute kids. We're too young to have grandchildren! aaaggghh!!! But what a treat!
Why the Owner Chose Haiku: Huelo is off the beaten path, wild and wonderful. Who could resist? We have a constant trade wind, so we never 'bake' like the west side ... and here the landscape is lush, so it's easy to do our organic gardening. We wanted a Maui dream escape, but also wanted some conveniences, and these we have aplenty!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Privacy and relaxation are things that are priceless. So many people find they rediscover those things, when they stay with us. Romance too, of course - that comes naturally when you've re-created that space for just for yourselves. This is the natural part of Maui - not 'manicured' or 'manufactured' to be part of a Hollywood image. Here, you discover the 'real' Maui - exotic ... waterfalls ... bamboo forests ... soaring ocean cliffs ... nesting seabirds ... wild ocean ... what we dream of, when we say 'Hawaii'. Here, you'll feel 'remote', but still enjoy the conveniences of having access to 3 small towns (Pa'ia, Makawao and Haiku) for easy grocery pickup, P.O., delightful boutiques & fun restaurants.
