Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom, Maximum 5 guests

Permit: STPH 2013/0024 TA-091-083-1616-01.

Fabulous views, privacy and quiet were foremost for us in choosing where to build our dream home in Hawaii. We looked for several years before finding this special Maui hilltop location on the side of the volcano. The main villa sits at the top of the hill, with the privacy protected by an entry gate.

We aspired not to a tailored gated community but rather to a feeling of informality in a serene, natural more rural setting. It was also important to us to be free as possible from the noise arising from airports, close neighbors and road traffic. Our 2 ½ acres feels secluded, and we hear the birds and the breeze rather than road noise.

We chose Maui’s north shore because our family is very active in sporting activities, and we manage to surf, windsurf, kite board, boogie board, snorkel, stand-up paddle, fish, and run (in the fields). Our location is reasonably central so that trips to Makawao (10 minutes), Paia (10 minutes) and to the top of Haleakala volcano, to Hana, to Makena or to Lahaina are all easy.

When you walk into Pinnacle, you'll be in the Great room, looking through the house, across the pool to ocean and mountain views. It's truly breathtaking! There are very few places on Maui that can offer such a vista.

This home was constructed with top quality materials and fixtures. The layout runs along the edge of the hill, so that all rooms look out to the view. Most guests tell us that they rarely leave the property, since they're so happy relaxing by the pool, enjoying the view.

Why Cathy or Melody chose East Maui

Permit: STPH 2013/0024

Fabulous views, privacy and quiet were foremost for us in choosing where to build our dream home in Maui, Hawaii. We looked for several years before finding this special Maui hilltop location on the side of the volcano. The main villa sits at the top of the hill, and is fully gated for privacy

We aspired not to a tailored gated community but rather to a feeling of informality in a serene, natural more rural setting. It was also important to us to be as free as possible from the noise arising from airports, close neighbors and road traffic. Our 2 ½ acres feels secluded, and we hear the birds and the breeze rather than road noise.

We chose Maui’s north shore because our family is very active in sporting activities, and we manage to surf, windsurf, kite board, boogie board, snorkel, stand-up paddle, fish, and run (in the old pineapple fields). Our location is reasonably central so that trips to Makawao and to the top of Haleakala volcano, to Hana, to Makena or to Lahaina are all easy.

What makes this house unique

VIEWS, VIEWS, VIEWS!! It's peaceful, quiet, private. Truly escape from the hustle and bustle of the Mainland.

Loved the house and views

  • 5 of 5

I wish I was back there!!! We had the best vacation and the Pinnacle Main was perfect. Loved, loved, loved the house and the views!!! The pool and hot tub were very nice, although we only used the hot tub once. We didn't do a whole lot of anything except relaxing, which was desperately needed.

Thank you so much for everything. You were so wonderful to work with and we will use you again when we come back. Appreciate everything, especially the late checkout. So glad that worked out.

Amazing Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the home. From the double gated entrance, to the circular driveway, to the incredible view from the infinity pool and hot tub. The house has been appointed to meet anyone's needs. We've stayed in a few luxury homes and this one definitely had the wow factor with that view. We lost count of how many rainbows we saw.

The area is nice and quiet and we met the neighbour next door who grows tropical flowers and we said that she should put a flyer in the home and the cottage to let future guests know. Her tropical garden is right next door and is to die for. She sells every Saturday for $10 a bouquet.

Haiku is a cute little town. We bought a few groceries at the grocery store there. We also went to Nuka and had a nice dinner there one night.

We do recommend that you grocery shop in either Kahului or Paia. If you're looking for cheap sunscreen check out Target! Paia has an amazing grocery store Mana Foods and we wish we would have discovered this place earlier on our trip. We also enjoyed the store Pearl in Paia as well.

Up Haleakala is an amazing little town called Makawao. Enjoyed a few stores there and artists galleries. Picked up some local art as well. We drove up to Kula and Haleakala.

We usually stay in Wailea at the Andaz but we brought the Andaz to us in Haiku! It was nice to have the serenity peace and luxury all to ourselves. Can't wait until next time. Thanks for an amazing getaway.

Just magical!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for allowing us to experience the Pinnacle.

It was by far one of the best houses we have stayed at on the islands.

The pool was our favourite part and watching the early evenings sweep across the island. Breezes in the sugarcane fields. Just magical!

I think our best area to visit was Paia, to have our morning latte and stroll through the shops.

One of our best stays. Can’t say enough!

We may be looking at the property again by years end i am sure.

Will keep in touch. Mahalo

Great visit!

  • 5 of 5

What a great visit we had. We really didn't go out too much. Really enjoyed the peaceful beauty of the home. The pool and hot tub were where we stayed most of the week. The views were spectacular. Everything we needed was there. Colleens was one of our favorite spots. We probably ate there seven times either lunch or dinner. Staff and food were both remarkable. Also liked Hana Hou cafe for lunch. The haiku grocery had everything we needed. For dinner, Mamas fish house was awesome. We went twice and would probably have gone again if we would have had more time. We went to Milagros a few times and the margaritas were very good as well as the guacamole and fresh chips. Drove to Lahaina for the day. Another day to Wailea. Beaches were both very beautiful.

I also found you and the staff there to be most helpful to us in our search for this trip. You were very prompt in your replies and very so very nice to work with. We would be sure to contact you again on our next trip.

Delightful time.

  • 5 of 5

Having had a day to recover from the return, I just thought I would drop you a line to let you know we had a wonderful time at the Pinnacle. The house and location exceeded our expectations. We donated a coffee grinder and french press coffee maker to the house, I trust future guests and the owners will appreciate them. Thank you for all the useful information and we are seriously considering doing this again before too long.

A vacation in Upcountry Maui is an opportunity to escape from the hustle and bustle, and experience a different side of Maui. Set just a few hundred feet above sea level, Pinnacle sits outside the rain band, on the edge of a hill, at the entrance to the quiet, rural town of Haiku. Just one mile up the road is the town center, with a variety of amenities and services.

Eating out: Haiku town center offers a variety of small restaurants and cafes. From the lunch time fish taco stand, to breakfast, lunch or dinner at Colleens, there is both variety, as well as quantity: Colleen's, Veg Out, Hana Hou, Lynn's Café and the newest addition –Nuka (sushi).

For upscale dining, Mama's Fish House and Haliimaile General Store (two of Maui's best restaurants) are within ten minutes by car. If you are looking for more options, Paia or Makawao are only ten minutes by car from Pinnacle.

Groceries: Haiku town center has two small grocery stores - Haiku Grocery, and Fukushima's. Although small in size, they seem to have almost everything you might want. For major grocery shopping, Safeway and Costco are located in Kahului (approx. 20 minutes from the house).

Health and Fitness: Upcountry Fitness is a small gym, offering short memberships suitable for guests on vacation.

Other services include: Hair and nail salon, Chiropractor, Massage therapist (note: many therapists will visit the house and provide on-site services), Doctor's office

Business Services: We hope that you won't be working on vacation, but if necessary, Haiku town center has a Postal Plus and a post office. (Note: Pinnacle also provides high speed wireless internet) in both the Guest Cottage and the Main House.

Activities and Adventure: There's really no shortage! The Haiku area is close to world class surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, hiking, and biking. Be sure to visit Donnie at Go Cycling Maui in Paia. They offer the ultimate cycling tour experience, treating you like a professional cyclist (sort of like a fantasy camp for cyclists). They are also a full service bike shop with high end rentals.

Haleakala Bike Company is located in Haiku, and offers a very different service. They drive to the Haleakala park gate and provide a bike for you to cycle down at your own pace.

For a quick hike, be sure to visit Twin Falls (about 10-15 minutes by car from Pinnacle) and hike up the stream to the waterfalls. They're a bit chilly, but there's nothing like swimming under a waterfall.

If you want to soar over a gulch, the Piiholo Zipline is a short ten minute drive from Pinnacle.
