"The price, the location and the space was perfect for my son and I on this last trip to Maui. We were able to cook meals when we wanted and felt comfortable with the drive to the beach and restaurants and anyplace else on the island!~ We had privacy and it was quiet for the most part. You could smell the flowers coming in with the breeze and there are lilikoi in the back. It does get hot up top, but when you open the windows the breeze fills the room and cools everything down. Our hosts were great and I couldn't be happier with the trip! Mahalo!!"

"I have been to Maui several times in the past and convinced my partner and another couple to come. From the start, dealing with Sharyn was a pleasure! Huelo Point Lookout is more than we had expected. The photos do not do it justice! The directions may seem a bit daunting, but rest assured, as soon as you make the drive once, you are set! We were greeted with some Welcome treats at the house, and were quick to meet with Sharyn. We found ourselves not wanting to leave our little paradise for fear of the 'outside world'. Though, when we did, we discovered the Twin Falls, and several other little gems which were a short drive away. We did have a little Wasp issue, but that was quickly resloved by Sharyn who handled them like a pro! The ONLY downfall (if you could even call it that) of being on this side of the Island, is that the trade winds are quite strong, and can feel like you're going to be blown over on some days. When that happens, hop in the car, and take a trip to Lahaina!
From the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank Sharyn for opening up her home to us Crazy Canadians ;)
We hope to see you again next year!!!"

"My wife, 5-year old daughter and I stayed at the Tropical retreat for 5 nights. We had a very enjoyable stay at the Tropical Retreat cottage. The cottage is very spacious, as other reviewers have noted and has a well-equipped kitchen including a dishwasher and fridge - I actually can't say enough about the fridge - it has a crushed ice setting which is perfect for making an extra cold glass of water, which is perfect for Hawaii's hot summer days. I think our daughter is now addicted to water it tastes so good! :)
The cottage is really well situated for Maui adventures. You are only 1 mile away from the start of the "Road to Hana", very close to Baldwin beach/baby beach, and also to forest walks and the Haleakala Crater.
Being in the upcountry, the area also feels more 'real'. We later stayed in West Maui, and visited South Maui, both of which feel like one big strip mall by comparison.
Everything went great during our stay and the only negative is that you don't have much of a view of the ocean (the volcano is behind you but is usually covered by clouds by the afternoon). That said, you do have a comfortable patio where you can lounge in privacy with a cold glass of wine so we didn't mind too much.
One caution: the closest 'big' grocery stores are about 20+ minutes away so stock up before you arrive!
I really recommend this place!"

"Nous avons passé une semaine et nous avons vraiment aimé. Max nous a accueilli avec chaleur et fait visiter son verger. Nous mangions les fruits de celui-ci et nous avons adoré les lilikois ou fruits de la passion. La décoration est un peu défraichie mais il y a tout le nécessaire et le grand bonheur est de déjeuner sur le lanai face à l'océan ce que nous faisions tous les matin. L'endroit est extrêmement calme mais il faut absolument une voiture. Nous avions une gentille famille de geckos au plafond mais cela fait partie du paysage à Hawaii et ils ont leur utilité. Pas gênant du tout. Nous y retournerions sans hésitation, le rapport qualité/prix est bon."
