Description of the Haiku vacation cottage rental
Please RAED full description below. We have individual rooms in our Mainhouse and separate cottages.

For over 25 years we have tended to this land and respected the Hawaiian nature and ancient way of living in harmony with Mother Earth. We are proud of our achievements in the past 25 years consciously carving and creating out of raw jungle a template for future sustainable living. Are you ready to embark on a journey off the beaten path and discover the elegance of sustainable living?

We are the Hidden Jewel on the North Shore of Huelo and once you find us ~ you have found Shangri-la ~ the lost paradise. Full license and permitted since 2009 Permit # BBPH0003.

This extraordinary place is full of genuine Hawaiian Mana (blessings). It can be felt the moment you set foot on our lush green land. Whether you are seeking sanctuary, looking to write the next chapter of your life, or are simply on vacation, come explore sustainable living on Maui's 5-star certified Eco-Retreat, voted 'The Greenest Spot on Maui' and the proud recipient of the 'Platinum Green Leadership Award 2013 and 2014.

Maui Retreat is a 10-acre, secluded oceanfront property with amazing waterfall trails ending at a lagoon for swimming. We are completely off-grid and you'll enjoy: solar power, delicious well water, temples to meditate, create or relax in. It is simply a very romantic setting. We offer luxurious and unique accommodations. Organic coconuts on-site and tropical fruits are available when in season.

Escape the tourist-filled places. Yes, this is the old Hawaii you have been looking for: exotic, wild, waterfalls, hiking trails, lush bamboo forests next to the ocean, and yet only 15 min drive away from Haiku shopping centers and restaurants, and 25 minutes from Pa’ia.

MAIN HOUSE - all 4 rooms have ocean views and can be rented separately or for a group. The shared fully appointed kitchen and dining space provides our guests a unique meeting place to sit and talk about their experiences while cooking or sharing delicious food. The kitchen bar is handcrafted from beautiful bamboo material and the large bamboo dining table hosts 8 people comfortably.

How to find our Maui Retreat:
We are only located 20 miles from Kahului airport on the North Shore near the towns of Haiku and Twin Falls.

What makes us sustainable:
We are caretakers of this sacred land since 1988 and consider ourselves environmental-spiritual activists. We are specialized in structural bamboo - the lumber of the future. 50% of our buildings are constructed from Bamboo or recycled materials. Our bamboo farm is an invitation for agriculture tourism and contributing to the new consciousness of alternative energy and living organically and ecological sustainable. We invite you to watch our feature length movie called 'The Dance of Earth and Spirit'.

We are 100% organic and apply the Permaculture method (Permanent Agriculture for a Human Base Eco-System). We provide natural well water on property for drinking and use a water catchment system for landscaping. We recycle ours and our guests' waste including glass, cardboard, paper, plastic and aluminum cans. Food waste goes to the worms and chickens and the rest gets composted.

Indian Room

May 9, 2015

Loved the location and the hikes here. It is a great place to really unwind and relax. The decor and set up for meditation is great and they offer classes for those interested in a variety of things. I would give it an extra 1/2 star but I am unable to add a half star. The reason I gave it 4 1/2 stars versus 5 stars is that the Indian room is just a room but the kitchen and bathroom is shared. I would have liked to have a room with our own bathroom and small kitchen. They do offer an outdoor bathroom which is wonderful and tranquil.

Owner's reply:

Aloha Diana,

Thank you for your review and your kind words. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your time with us, and do hope to welcome you back to our retreat in the future!

Just a note about our bathrooms - guests have the option of choosing a room with a private or shared bathroom. One of our shared bathrooms is outdoors, where guests can experience the luxury of a (private) tropical outdoor shower. Our cottage does have its own private kitchen as well.

Aloha and mahalo nui loa!
