Heaven on Earth in Upcountry Maui

Family-friendly cottage in Kula with spa tub
A 72-hour pretravel testing program will begin on October 15th. Here is a link that describes the requirements of travel to Hawaii. Be sure to read through the FAQs that clarify the rules. https://www.hawaiitourismauthority.org/covid-19-updates/

During a press conference on November 19, Governor David Ige announced that starting November 24, travelers wishing to bypass the 14-day mandatory quarantine must have their negative COVID-19 test results - from a trusted testing partner - prior to departure for the State of Hawaii. ONLY tests performed at sites approved by the State of Hawaii will be accepted (see the above website for a complete list of testing sites).

IMPORTANT: If test results are not available before boarding the final leg of the trip, the traveler must quarantine for 14 days or the length of the stay, whichever is shorter. Travelers will not be able to avoid the 14-day quarantine even if they receive a post-departure negative test.

The new policy applies to domestic transpacific flights and international flights departing from locations in which the State of Hawaii pre-testing programs are in place.

When you arrive on Maui you will be asked for the name, address, and permit number of The Star Lookout which are: 622 Thompson Road, Kula, HI 96790; Permit Number Ordinance #3627; Bill No. 14; CP 2002/0009.

Slice of heaven
We have been to Maui many times and never stayed upcountry until now. This hidden gem was the perfect place to end our vacation and spend some quiet peaceful time reflecting and taking in the magnificent views. The property was amazing! The fresh fruit was the icing on the cake. I can’t say enough good things about our experience. We will definitely be back, and we have large aspirations of retiring in a place exactly like this. We were blessed to have this opportunity as a family to stay there. The kids had space to run and play and that was important too. We all loved it!!!

5/5 Excellent

The view and surroundings of the property are stunningly beautiful. Its so great that I don’t think a few tiny small issues matter at all. We enjoyed views, wildlife, nature walks around and used the kitchen to maximum due to covid situation. The caretakers live on the property which helped a lot. I felt a spiritual connection to this place.

5/5 Excellent

Where Time is Still
A place of solitude, adventure, and wonder all in one. The home, property, neighborhood, and Ray (the caretaker) will delight at first sight. The descriptions are spot on and the reviews don't lie. Every morning is a new greeting that will slow your heart, fill your your eyes with beauty, and be cause for a deep relaxing breathe. The views are priceless, and the night sky is like no other. All the amenities and hospitality for comfy/cozy is readily abundant and well presented. The Star Lookout is a beautiful cabin, with an old rustic soul, in the most wondrous small town of Kula, that will pause the busiest of life.

5/5 Excellent

We absolutely loved it here! The fresh fruit, the views, all of it was absolutely amazing! What a great location for some rest and relaxation. We will be back!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful location
This is truly a getaway location in the upcountry of Maui. The location is wonderful for access to Haleakalā National Park and for star gazing. Great facilities and the fresh oranges, tangerines, limes and lemons were a plus!
