If you want to experience a tropical paradise, a freeform botanical garden that is exclusivly yours, no other guests. The owners are on a separate 1.2 acres, on the same road. You will be staying in a custom log home, natural breathing wood, brought from Finland. Poisons are never used, no chemicals for the past 17 years that we have been here. If you love nature, please come. If being near this kind of plant diversity, with its wonderful, inspiring vistas is an important feature for this trip, please come.
Custom Log Home on 2.6 acres, it feels like the Hawaii many people long for. Take a look at our main website, with many photos: www.mauichalet.com. You are surrounded with hundreds of species of botanicals, tropical flowers, fruit trees, song birds, yet you are only a short 25 minute drive to Paia, 15 min. to Haiku.

Wake up to the beautiful sound of melodious thrush and have your coffee/tea on the balcony with the garden view and a slice of the Pacific only a few thousand feet away. Experience your own totally private paradise.
Hot tub is maintained with clean rainwater and an ozoneator. An experience very different from chlorinated tubs. Such a pleasure relaxing, while watching the milky way, shooting stars ( in season) or the different phases of the moon.

Why Steve and Jette chose Huelo
We are away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist area, yet only 15 min away from the nearest shops and restaurants. The privacy, quietness, serenity is what makes for a relaxing get away vacation.

Great House to Relax and Enjoy the North Shore of Maui!
My wife, daughter, daughter's fiance and I recently spent 10 days at the Maui Chalet and loved it! The grounds are gorgeous (like a botanical garden) and the house is comfortable and well-equipped. We particularly enjoyed the hot tub which is filled with rain water and has no chemicals at all. We also made good use of the kitchen to prepare a number of our meals as it is a roughly 20 minute drive to the nearest town with restaurants. There is snorkeling equipment at the house which we also used. If you just want a hotel room with a beach nearby, this is probably not the place for you, but as a base for our whale watching, snorkeling and other Maui adventures it was perfect!
It was a pleasure to have you all here, Paul. Always we especially appreciate people, who takes notice of our garden and the way we keep the Chalet , our pride and pleasure!
So happy you had a perfect Maui experience! Would love to house you or your friends again!
Beautiful house, gorgeous property and grounds. We didn’t want to leave :)
Secluded, but a bit disappointing
I booked this property based on the website description, reviews and the fact that I wanted a location with privacy, as opposed to a resort hotel. The highlights were certainly how welcoming and accommodating Jette and Steve are as hosts, as well as the privacy and seclusion of the location.
There were also some lowlights - I must say that when I arrived, I was quite surprised that the house had a pervasive musty/stale smell that was a bit unpleasant and persisted. The other issue for me was that as a solo female traveler, I found that I did not feel entirely safe in the property location , given that it is somewhat isolated in the jungle and some of the neighboring properties are a bit sketchy.
As others have observed, it is definitely off the beaten path and quite a unique setting! The jungle is vibrant and teeming with a wide variety of tropical plants and birds. It's a bit of drive to the beaches, but Steve and Jette provided valuable advice on beaches, restaurants in Paia and parking. I would recommend it as retreat for couples or families, but it's not quite what I was expecting.
There had been an unusual amount of rain, over the whole Island. The previous guest had been living there almost 2 months and he liked to keep the windows closed (he is from a cold climate, where that’s common.) The 'musty' odor was temporary, as the sun came out, with the windows open and warm trade winds blowing, it usually smells good. In 14 years, we never heard of about a musty smell.
My wife is an avid professional and highly detailed cleaner who spent many hours prior to this guests arrival to ensure it was as clean as possible.
It is a shame and it's judgmental to claim "sketchy" neighbors, as the neighbors a block before the Chalet are our Hawaiian neighbor family who don't have much money and live on their ancestral property. We have known them for 17 years. Just after the Chalet there are 3 multimillion dollar estates. Our neighborhood is diverse and safe.
What a beautiful home in a wonderful garden!
We loved being in the chalet after a nice day around Hana Highway!
Steve is really nice and so easy to communicate with and so helpful for anything we needed.
We wish we stayed longer in this sweet home!
Perfectly Appointed, Off the Beaten Path
Steve and Jette are wonderful hosts of this perfectly appointed home outside Paia. They have thought of everything you may need to make your stay comfortable. Here are a few highlights of the house:
-The beds are very comfortable
-The layout of the house is open and spacious
-The house is well appointed but not cluttered
-The hot tub is a dream - no chlorine!
-The surrounding gardens are verdant and well tended
I can't recommend this house enough if you want to see a more authentic side of Maui away from the resorts and condos. My only qualification would be for families with small children or if you are a weaker swimmer - we found the beaches on the north shore less hospitable than the more mellow beaches in south or west Maui, so be prepared to drive a bit for more appropriate beaches. That said, we were very happy to return to this house in the evenings after a day of exploring, hiking, or in the water. My family looks forward to returning to this house for years to come.
So nice to have your lovely family here.!
We love to see enthusiasm, curiosity, interest and respect! you give us hope for the future!
Thank you for leaving The Chalet so nice!
The Baldwin Beach Park Cove, Baby Beach and the tidepools at Ho'okipa are all very nice for kids, when the surf are down - most summer!.
The perfect place in paradise!
We could not have been happier with our choice to stay at this chalet for our honeymoon! The backyard view and hot tub are amazing, the amenities are comfortable and Steve and Jette are the perfect hosts. They went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay. We highly recommend staying here and will definitely return on our next trip to Maui!
