  • Absolute Perfection! Stayed 8 Days...Did Not Want To Leave!

    "There are so many special things to say about The Star Lookout Cottage. Walking passed it for the past 5 years on visits to Upcountry, we ogled it and could finally get a reservation this year! It is even better than my wildest dreams and I know it will be always in my heart. Already have our reservations for next March! Otherwise...not sure I could leave! Okay...the features! The cottage sits at around 3000' on the slopes of Haleakala. Expect weather! Beautiful breezes...sun...mist..clouds...down poring rain. That can all be in one day...or over several. The main room is very comfortable for looking out, reading, the large screen tv is here, fast wifi, the fully equipped kitchen, a full bath and the best raised sleeping nook enclosed by light curtains to use or not. The large decks are filled with chairs, the best 2 person hammock, a table. Incredible sunsets from here as well as delightful bird watching! We never used the inside wood stove, the outside fire pit or the outside hot tub! Amazed by the super cleanliness of everything! Silverware, best knives ever, luxurious linens! There is also a separate bedroom and incredible full bath that you access from the front porch. It has a full closet, plenty of unpacking space, a very comfy queen bed, night tables, and a most fabulous bathroom! Sandstone counter top...incredible shower, over counter sink! Tasteful and perfectly remodeled! We switched back and forth for sleeping! The stars from the 'star bed' in the living area are simply breathtaking...as was the light of the full moon, eventually. Planets! The Milky Way! It was great for us to have the option of the other room which was darker! I seriously had to force myself to sleep from the excitement of the night sky! Located on incredible Thompson Road, where very, very people have homes...Oprah's ranch estate is one of your nearest neighbors and it's .8 of a mile away. Great areas of Maui are easy to get to. We spend a few days in Wailea, here and then time in Hana. Clearly, we love peace and quiet. No bar scene, no crowds, no pools with slides here! Just the awesomeness of hiking trails, biking, birds, flowers, Mana Market, Yee's marvelous mangoes(okay, the stand is 50 minutes away in Kihei and worth the drive) and we love The General Store in Halimaile for lunch. We walk to very popular Grandma's Cafe for breakfasts from here. Longest review I have ever written! My only regret is having not stayed here before!"

  • Nicely situated, comfortable home near Haleakala National Park.

    "We enjoyed our time in this comfortable home. It was close to Haleakala National Park, which we wanted to visit. We also went to the Farmer's Market and also visited a beach which didn't seem to far away. The breakfast items provided were delicious and there was more food than we ever could have eaten. We had fun watching the lizards around the property and viewing the stars at night. I would highly recommend this rental to families. My only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was the shower curtain lining in the master bath needed replaced and the kitchen cabinets needed to be cleaned."

  • A very pleasant and local feeling stay

    "The unit is located in easy walking distance to the busy and lively small town of Pai'a, where you can find some of best eating places and grocery markets for organic and cooked foods, should you choose not to eat at the restaurants. Upon arrival we were delivered fresh bananas, muffins and a very sweet Maui Gold pineapple. The owner and host, Avis, was most helpful to all of our questions ranging from how to set up the television channels to where the locals shopped for the best mochi!"
