Rainbow Honeymoon Lookout - Legally Permitted - Maui North Shore

Bedrooms 1
Half Baths1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

A wall of windows and a spectacular circular staircase are the first things you notice in Rainbow Honeymoon Lookout. That spiral staircase leads up to a loft bedroom with spectacular ocean views as well as skylights for stargazing from bed. A Cal King bed luxuriously cradles you as you drift off to sleep under the starlit sky. A half-bath, full closet, and two balconies complete the bedroom loft. Downstairs includes a full bath, a kitchen area with a full sized refrigerator and dishwasher, lots of food prep area, and small appliances. Cooking is done Hawaiian-style under a covered lanai on either a propane burner or charcoal grill (bring your own charcoal). The lanai includes a table for two next to the water fountain for outdoor dining. Or dine inside on our glass top dining table and wicker chairs with an amazing view of Maui's north shore. After dinner relax in the papasan chairs, snuggle on the sweet daybed, or head out to the hot tub lanai for a relaxing evening under the stars - remember to grab the bottle of wine chilling in the fridge! After your soak in the hot tub, you can rinse off in our hot and cold outdoor shower! If you are up for a dip in our 44 foot free form pool, there is a little path right outside your front door - just a few steps and you are poolside! Don't worry, even though the pool is shared between the cottages, it is never crowded or noisy!

Huelo Point Lookout is a legally permitted (BBPH 2009/0015, TAT/GE #W40445368-01) B&B which means your reservation is always safe with us. We have four unique cottages located on Maui's unspoiled north shore that allow you to get away from it all and enjoy relaxation and privacy. We are centrally located with access to the entire island but off the beaten path enough to feel private and relaxed: Forty-five minutes from Kahului Airport and 15-20 minutes from shopping and restaurants.

We cater to honeymoon couples and those who enjoy a private retreat. Many couples choose to spend some of their time on property relaxing, but when you are ready to head out, easy access to Hana Highway means you can be out the door and on your way for a day in sightseeing easily! Drive the rest of the Road to Hana - ahead of those starting out further west and have a more relaxed experience or head up to Mt. Haleakala to catch the amazing sunrise at 10,000 feet! Kula, Makawao, Haiku, and Paia are just a few of the quaint little towns to explore for unique shopping and 'real Maui' experience. The renowned Ho'okipa Beach is just up the road if windsurfing is your passion or head over to Baldwin, Mama's, or Paia beaches for some fun in the sun. There is hiking - some of the most spectacular waterfalls on the island can be found along Hana Highway - along either direction - you can't make a wrong turn as far as scenery is concerned! Or head back to the West Mountains and hike the amazing Iao Valley or try snorkeling in Kihei or Lahaina.

There is so much to do here - all within easy access of your own private cottage with personal hot tub. We look forward to your stay!

About Sharyn

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!

Sharyn purchased this cottage in 1992

Why Sharyn chose Huelo

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!

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just returned from Hawaii a week ago, and we can't wait to go back! The Rainbow Lookout was absolutely fabulous, the perfect little home for two. Everything was spotlessly clean, and the house was extremely private. You don't have to see another soul the whole time you're there if you don't want to, but you can always count on your hosts to welcome you and help you with anything you need.

Rainbow Lookout is the perfect place to feel in touch with nature and capture the real spirit of Hawaii. Taking an outdoor shower just after the sunrise with a view of the ocean is absolute bliss, and there's nothing more relaxing than the amazing hot tub after a long day of exploring what Maui has to offer.

One other nice touch: Our hosts had fresh fruit (passion fruits, dragon fruit and cut-up watermelon) waiting for us when we got there, and fresh eggs. The house also has a lot of the basics, like dish soap, hand soap, paper towels, and basic spices so that you don't have to waste a ton of money purchasing all of that stuff on your own.

I really can't emphasize how relaxing and wonderful this place is. Don't expect it to be beachfront or be surrounded with lots of restaurants like the resort areas, and just revel in the essence of Hawaii.

The only thing you should know is that you should try to get there the first time during the daylight, because it can be kind of hard to find.

Restaurant tips: the nearest town is Pa'ia (about 25 minutes away). The best casual restaurant is the Flatbread Company (Kalua Pork Pizza), and Mama's Fish House is an unbelievably romantic and delicious restaurant (though very pricey).

Conclusion: Stay at Huelo Point! It's the perfect chance to experience Maui like the locals do.

The property was beyond amazing. The home was privet form all the other ones. Y

  • 5 of 5

I’d give this place 10 stars if I could. My boyfriend and I stayed here for our Babymoon and we couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate and relax before our little one arrives. Sharyn was incrediable, she was helpful with suggestions on restaurants and things to do around the island. The property is perfect if you want pirvecy and something quiet. We never wanted to leave. The drive might seems like a hassle or out of the way but it’s really not bad, and it’s totally worth it. We highly recommend this place and we can’t wait to come back and stay again.

Absolutely awesome accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Well first you have a lovely and very private space to call your own. Combine that with a very warm and friendly host (Sharon) and our stay could not have been better. The Rainbow Lookout met all our needs and had everything we needed in the kitchen, plenty of towels for bath and beach, beach chairs, ice chest, and extra scuba equipment. We could walk down the private road to catch the sunrise; we drank our coffee In the hottub and we swam in the very nice lagoon style pool every single day.

When we return to Maui we will definitely Come back. We loved the home and surrounding areas and enjoyed the natural setting as well. If you don’t like nature and want to be pampered by hotel staff then don’t come here. If you don’t mind seeing a gecko scramble across the rocks, then you’ll be ok here. If you want to see what it’s like to actually live like a Maui denizen then this is the place for you.

Sharon could not have been more responsive and accommodating. The fruit and bread and eggs and wine got us off to a great start!

Thanks for everything! We had an absolute blast.
