About Claudia Ledesma

Claudia, Kevin and Nohealani are the members of our happy family. We absolutely love sharing our little paradise we have created here on our 4,3 acres in Haiku. We have built our homes, have landscaped the grounds and maintain it all ourselves to this day. We continue to add to the beauty, as well as functionality of the land with orchards, vegetable gardens and a palm nursery, all whilst keeping the privacy intact. We love living off of our land and so do our guests. We love to be active, play in the ocean when our work schedule allows us, but we also enjoy the calm and serenity of our property.

Why Claudia Ledesma chose Haiku-Pauwela

Away from it all, complete privacy, but so centrally located, that you are close to all of the attractions Maui has to offer. It embraces you as a local resident and invites you to live the real Maui life!

What makes this House unique

The energy of this beautiful land fulfills you the moment you step foot on it. That is how it began for me in 1995 and continues to do so for my family still and the many wonderful guests we welcome.

                                                                      My husband and I looked at several houses on Maui but Hale Mauka Makai was the only one that truly caught our eye. For 11 days it was our own private paradise on Maui. We knew we wanted to stay someplace on north Maui, away from the resort towns and this house is perfectly located. The property and pool are amazing; we often spent whole days there not wanting to leave! We had fresh grapefruit, starfruit and passionfruit every morning. The kitchen was very well equipped, use the Nespresso and the Vitamix! The bed was super comfy and we loved sleeping with the windows open to the breezes. The house is extreemly well cared for and you can tell that Claudia and Kevin want everyone who comes here to enjoy it to the fullest. The towns of Pa'ia and Haiku are very close and have great restaurants and grocery stores. The beach in Pa'ia was great - don't miss the sea turtles that come up on shore every evening before sunset. Claudia gave us great tips on day trips, restaurants and attractions. But we are most grateful for her assistance in planning our 25th anniversary vow renewal on the property. She is a gem and we will never forget her kindness. You will be forever happy and grateful that you chose Hale Mauka Makai for your Maui escape.

                                                                      AumWashington State

                                                                      This is a great place to be. We stayed for a week with our two kids, and loved picking fruit, swimming in the pool, relaxing on the porch and making a great cup of coffee in the morning while we read on the couch. The home has great attention to detail and provides for most anything you would need. It is spacious, and we liked that each room had their own bathroom. You are a short drive to Paia- as well as Haiku and Makawao, so its location is very versatile. You are just minutes from great breakfast spots, 10-15 minutes to swimming beaches (even closer to Ho'olipa beach park), on the doorstep to the road to Hana, and aan ideal starting point to head up to Kula or Haleakala. We loved it! Claudia was a pleasure to deal with for the booking and other details. I wish I was still there! We will most certainly be back!

                                                                      Everything we had hoped for!

                                                                      Valerie R.Ca

We can't say enough wonderful things about the house. From the views, to the trade winds, to your own private pool. Even the roosters crowing in the morning was welcomed. Claudia, the owner was such a pleasure to work with from the very beginning till our departure. Communicates well during the planning and even gives you a tour of the property and gardens when you arrive. Don't hesistste to book this property. You won't find anything like it!

                                                                      Perfect Upcountry Vacation Home

                                                                      Beth N.

The house was just as described and exceeded our expectations. Views of the ocean and mountains were stunning. Pool provided a great end of the day activity for my family.

                                                                      Can't wait to return!

                                                                      We have stayed multiple times at this location. Every time we are not disappointed. The home is wonderfully decorated, and the property stunning. The owners welcoming and kind. The location is perfect for us, so close to Haiku and Paia and Hookipa and Baldwin beach. Just perfect! Would not hesitate to stay again and we have already booked our next stay!.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Superb Holiday Home with Stunning Gardens & Views

                                                                      This property is located on the outskirts of the village of Haiku and provides the perfect balance of peace and tranquility with good amenities in the village to chill out and enjoy the fruits of the island. It is also situated close to Paia with may fine eateries.

                                                                      Claudia is genuinely committed to ensuring that your stay is as good as it can possibly be, on arrival the house was spotlessly clean and the grounds beautifully manicured despite the rare onset of a strong tropical storm. The character of the house and the thought that has gone into the furnishings etc just make it feel special , nespresso machine was a big hit.

                                                                      The views are also a really special feature, panoramic views over hills down to the ocean and the gardens are beautifully maintained and stocked. Pool area is spacious and nicely secluded with good comfortable loungers with luxuriously soft towels provided.

                                                                      In all the complete package that made for a really enjoyable and memorable stay for our family, we hope that we can return again in the future. Special thanks to Claudia for all of the preparations made before our visit to ensure we would be comfortable and safe in light of the prospective tropical storm causing damage. As it turned out the intensity reduced and it cleared quickly but the thought and consideration was there which we really appreciated.
