Cosy Cottage Retreat

Cottage in Haiku with patio
Haleakala Cottage is a darling studio cottage tucked into the corner of our exotic tropical gardens. From your own private hot tub, you can see all the way up to the 10,000 ft summit of Mt. Haleakala - our long dormant volcano.

The cottage features a luxurious California King bed, fully equipped kitchen with a 5-burner gas stove, front and back lanais with a private hot tub, hot and cold outdoor shower, charcoal barbecue (bring your own charcoal), a towel warmer to keep your big, fluffy towels dry. You will also have access to our shared guest laundry and 44 foot free form 'jungle' swimming pool. Now we have high speed internet!! No actual 'TV' though as we have no reception here - but you can tune into Netflix, or just bring your laptop. (Or just enjoy leaving all that at home!)

We're located on Maui's unspoiled north shore and is ideally situated for exploring Haiku, Hana, Makawao, Kula, Mt Haleakala, the bamboo forests, waterfalls and our gorgeous unspoiled beaches (Ho’okipa, Baldwin, Kanaha, Mama’s & Baby Beaches – come surf, windsurf and kitesurf!).

We're also ideally set up for longer term stays if you'd like to 'work from home' here in paradise! (Just ask about our generous longer stay rates). We also arrange a contactless check in (but I'm always just a text away).

There are four private accommodations on our property with a shared pool, but it never feels crowded. (I've actually had guests come to see me at the end of their stay and ask where the other cottages ARE! :):):) Each cottage has its own private hot tub and is surrounded by two organic orchards which supply fresh lemons, limes, tangerines, papayas, avocados, macadamia nuts, bananas, star fruit, guavas, coconuts, soursop, and passionfruit. You will find a gorgeous basket of our freshest fruits waiting for you upon arrival and possibly even a fresh cut coconut chilling in your fridge! Grab the coconut and head out to the lanai - let your cares just melt away! This is the 'real Hawaii'.....

Huelo Point Lookout is located about 45 minutes from Kahului airport. We are 15 to 20 minutes from shopping and restaurants. You might want to stop at Mana Foods in Pa'ia on your way through and grab the essentials for your stay - Mana has great organic choices and they have been a local favorite for 30 years!
Guest accommodations at this cottage feature patios.

Beautiful Oasis Getaway
We loved our time at the Huelo Point Lookout! We rented the Haleakala Cottage and it was so perfect! Sharyn and Jeff are so friendly and helpful. We came for a second honeymoon. It was private, romantic, and such a dreamy escape from the rest of the world! We’d love to bring our kids back and stay in one of the other houses they have on the property! Huelo Point is beautiful place to escape to and relax!!

5/5 Excellent

Quaint cottage
A bit off the beaten path which is what we expected. Quiet, secluded spot in a neighborhood within lush foliage. Definitely on the wet, cooler side of the island. Sharyn was a responsive, thoughtful host.

5/5 Excellent

Best way to celebrate my Bday!
Kudos to Sharyn who made this stay as wonderful as it can get! Everything was well thought and clean. On top of that, I checked in late at night and what a treat to have a breakfast ready the next day!! Huelo is the perfect location, right between Lahaina and Hana, at the same time cut off from society! The hot tub was the icing on the cake.

5/5 Excellent

This property is heaven. Peaceful, private, quaint, a perfect break from the pandemic and stress of life. My husband and I loved our time here and wish we stayed longer. Sharyn is a wonderful host that has spoiled us with everything we needed and more. I can’t say enough great things about this place. I want to go back already!

5/5 Excellent

Like Being in a Costa Rica Rain forest but without the bugs
We have been to Maui several times, and have always stayed on the West side in resort areas. This stay we divided it up and wanted to see more of the other side of island without making the trek. Our cottage was beautiful! It exceeded our expectations!!! Better than the pics. The property was beautiful and fun to discover the different fruit trees, avocado trees, macadamia trees, etc. We saw so much on the road to Hana this time because we had such a jump start with being so close. Close to Jaws, and Hookipa park. Paia. Mama's Fish house. Owners communicated so well, and relieved any worries about covid and working with us if problems arose with traveling. We will be back! and PS... I went looking for insects/critters (to take photos) and there really isn't much on the island or this property. The tiniest of ants were around a switchplate in the bathroom- I think i must have had something on my hands that attracted them= food, cologne, etc. once we cleaned it, they didn't come back. so no worries there. Bed, pillows, linens were so comfy too!!!
