Imagine relaxing in your hammock or private jacuzzi at this exquisite honeymoon/vacation retreat where you are the only guests -- surrounded by unspoiled natural beauty, brilliant rainbows, sunsets over the ocean -- in complete privacy...
Have the best of both worlds by staying away from crowds and commercialized development, yet conveniently situated for exploring the entire island, just minutes from hiking, beaches, shops, and fine dining.
Unlike the typical resorts and hotels to the west or south, Maui Tradewinds is a private, family-owned retreat on the north shore of Maui. This part of the island still offers the chance to experience a natural paradise of pristine beaches, bamboo jungle, waterfalls and tropical rainforest.
There are only two guest accommodations here -- Tradewinds Suite and StarWind Cottage -- each one on an entirely separate part of the property from the other, and there are no shared or common areas. This page features StarWind Cottage -- a completely private vacation home. Furnishing and decor invite you into a colorful, contemporary tropical island lifestyle.
StarWind features a private Jacuzzi with ocean view, Cal-king beds, fully-equipped kitchen, luxurious bath with deep tub for soaking two, Tiki garden with BBQ, and breathtaking 180-degree views sweeping from the volcano summit, across a rainforest valley, to the ocean. A discount may apply to bookings within 1-2 months. Enter your travel dates to check rates.

Can't Wait to Go Back!
This cottage was far beyond our expectations - the view is amazing, the accommodations are great, and Bev and David go above and beyond to make you feel at home. The house is neat and clean, the porch and hot tub were so fun, and Bev was easy to contact if we had any questions or needs. The location is great for the road to Hana and visiting Haleakala, several beach options are close by - it is near the town of Paia which has great restaurants and shopping, yet it's dark and quiet at night so you have an amazing view of the stars. We can't get back there soon enough!
Aloha Amy & Russ: Thank you for your kind comments. It was a pleasure meeting you and your friends, and we'll look forward to seeing you in the future!
Wonderful home, gorgeous view and unsurpassed attention to detail
We are sadly packing up to leave our wonderful 3-night stay at StarWind cottage. This lovely home, and especially the stellar hosts Bev and David, far exceeded all our expectations. I've never encountered such thoughtful attention to detail in any other vacation rental. Fresh fruit and flowers, so many healthy snacks and drinks, an abundance of beach towels and other beach chairs and equipment, guide books, bug spray, etc.... I couldn't begin to list all the special touches, but please know that they didn't go unnoticed. My son especially enjoyed the outdoor shower and the hot tub. We were planning a nice dinner last night at Mama's Fish House, which we love, but decided to stay in for the evening to enjoy even more of our time here in this beautiful, peaceful setting. We cannot wait to return!
Aloha Shelley: Thank you for introducing us to your family and celebrating your birthday with us, and for taking time to post a review. Hope to see you for a longer visit another time!
Beautiful View and Hospitable Hosts
My wife and I went on vacation with our newly married friends to Hawai'i and this island-style home is where we stayed for our last four nights in Maui. Nestled in a Jungle-like area off of the Road to Hana, this location proved to be the perfect balance of close to interesting things we wanted to do, and far enough away from it all to be a very relaxing getaway. The views off of the elevated deck are stunning and the sunsets are breathtaking against the backdrop of the rolling hills, lush forest, and tall peaks of mountains. One of the hosts met us as we arrived and made us feel right at home, showing us how to use the hot-tub, where towels and beach gear were located, and provided us with a helpful guide-book to the area of the island the house is located. We felt very welcomed to this home and felt that our privacy and enjoyment were top priorities of our hosts. While there is no central air, the window units in the bedrooms provided plenty of comfort for sleeping and the main living area with the fans on was pleasantly mild during the day. During our stay here, we had easy access to the Road to Hana (a full-day activity I highly recommend), the sunrise on the summit of Haleakala, as well as a short trip to the airport at Kahului, and a short drive to our snorkel charter in Maalaea Harbor. Overall I would highly recommend making this tropical, lush little hideout a home-base for any trip you plan to the island of Maui!
Aloha David: Thank you for staying with us, and introducing your newlywed friends to us as well. I know you were looking for a blend of adventure and relaxation, and we're happy to hear that our location was suitable.
Maui Mountain Paradise
With splendid sweeping views and a beautifully appointed house, four of us enjoyed a relaxed and happy week on Maui. Our gracious hosts, Bev & David, were generous and most helpful with all aspects of our stay. The kitchen was well stocked, the fridge was full and there was an abundance of towels & linen. The spa on the deck added a touch of luxury and was welcome morning or night! Thank you Bev for the wonderful variety of fresh fruit, especially the sweet pineapples and bananas. Fond memories from your Australian visitors.
Aloha Alexandra: Thank you for your kind words. We enjoyed meeting all of you, and glad to hear your stay was a success!
Wonderful Tropical Retreat
We had a wonderful stay at the cottage. The sweeping 180 degree view of the valley and volcano crater is inspirational. The cottage is well designed so that the view is front and center from every room and we never grew tired of sitting in the hot tube and enjoying the exquisite view. The hosts, Bev and Dave, are just a phone call a way for any need, yet are respectful of their guests' privacy. The house is wonderfully equipped with everything one might need, including Kona coffee, snacks and fresh fruit. Bev has paid attention to ever detail in decorating and equipping the cottage. We look forward to returning to Maui and hope to stay longer at the cottage next trip.
Aloha Angela & Stan: Thank you for your kind review. Happy to hear you enjoyed your visit, and we'll look forward to seeing you again!
Love the view !
This home is located on the Jungle side of the island. We are used to going to Lahaina where all the beach and tourist areas are located. This trip I decided to book the VRBO and do the other side of the island which is less crowded. This is on the Hana Hwy side with lots of hiking trails and waterfalls. What a view this home has. The sunset is just breathtaking. The owner Bev met us as we arrived and went over the home and all of its features. She was so sweet. She left us lots of treats like nuts, fruit, granola bars, etc. She explains how things work and then told us where the laundry room was located in the driveway of the main home where she lives. This home is really a guest house just below the main home, but is very private. Bev the owner who lives in the main home supplies more items than most vacation rentals. Everything from drinks, treats, oatmeal, cereal, milk, and more in another refrigerator. Plastic wrap, trash bags, soaps, shampoo, and conditioner. She also supplied sunblock and mosquito repellent although we had very little problem with mosquitoes on this trip. You name it, she has it for use. The home features one large bathroom with large tub/shower and a huge vanity. There are plenty of towels. The second bath is a half bath with toilet and small vanity right off the bedroom. The beds are kingsize wicker style and super comfortable. Both bedrooms have windows air conditioners and ceiling fans and the living area has 2 ceilings fans. The only downside is no dishwasher in the home and I'm really used to having one. Bev the owner does offer paper plates and supplies that make it easier for guest not wanting to wash dishes. There is also an outside shower to spray off the sand or mud when you come back from the beach. That is a huge bonus instead of bringing it all inside the home. They supply a nice book of hiking and trails and really do try to go over anything you need. We enjoyed our stay and David and Bev are great hosts. The home is very comfortable and it has a hottub which we put to good use.
Aloha Judy: Thank you for taking time to post a detailed review. It was great to accommodate your family on the happy occasion of your son and daughter-in-law's honeymoon. Thank you, too for trying a "north shore" experience, instead of your customary Lahaina venue. Each coast has its unique features. We also appreciate your having extended yourselves to help a stranded traveler who needed assistance. That was a special act of kindness -- the kind this world needs!
