Rainbow Lookout is part of Huelo Pt Lookout ... the place to be 'in nature' surrounded by lush tropical (organic) gardens. All set for romance ... candles ... lie in your Cal King bed and look at the stars thru the six foot overhead skylight!
Situated on Maui's spectacular north shore, this fairy-tale hideaway is the ideal honeymoon retreat ... it feels far away from tourist crowds, yet is only a 15 minute trip to the nearest great restaurant or grocery store. So lovely to come "home" at the end of a day ... and sometimes, you'll probably just to stay "home" right here, and relax! Perhaps you'll "eat in", picking some fresh herbs from our organic garden ... or wander down to the top of our towering 300ft ocean cliffs for sunset ...
Rainbow is a dramatic two story accommodation which has a feeling of privacy and seclusion ... Upstairs, a Cal King bed with six foot skylights overhead for star-gazing - (our stars are very bright here, far away from city lights)... two private balconies, one with gorgeous ocean views and the other over our beautiful pool ... And downstairs, two small sitting rooms (one with a couch/trundle so if you have an extra little one, we can make space for you) ... bathroom, wet bar, dining area leading out on to one of several private lanais with soothing waterfall gardens, barbecue, and your own private hot tub.
From Rainbow Lookout, you can see all the way up the north shore cliffs of Maui to Hana, and then the spectacular views just keep going ... over our orchard greenery and all the way up the slopes of Mt Haleakala, our 10,000 ft dormant volcano.
Our location is ideal for exploring the whole island - but you don't have to stay in a crowded tourist area to do it ... 20 mins to Paia or Makawao, 1 3/4 hours to Hana, 70 mins to Lahaina, 45 mins to Kihei, 1 1/2 hrs up to the top of Haleakala etc. Maui is small enough so that you can stay in one place and have the whole island at your fingertips! BUT PLEASE BE AWARE THAT WE FEEL 'REMOTE'. The last mile of the Hana Highway before you turn off to Door of Faith Road is curvy, and the last third of a mile of our little road can be bumpy/ pot holey (depending on whether we've just had rain). This is a location intended for people who want that 'away from it all' feeling ... so if you're looking for big-time shopping and night life, this is NOT the place for you. Also note: nearest beach is Ho'okipa, about 20 mins away by car.
Please note: WE HAVE NO TV RECEPTION (but we leave a dozen cool DVD's for you and there's a great little video store 15 mins down the road). Our internet service isn't suitable for streaming, but more than adequate for e mails. Cell service can be spotty, but we provide a landline for your exclusive use in your cottage and all on-island phone calls are free.
We don't do daily maid service, though additional services may be arranged at extra cost. You are always welcome to exchange towels at our guest laundry.
We are LEGAL AND FULLY LICENSED! Make sure you reservation is secure - ask your hosts if they are licensed! (And if not, run! fast! Maui County is in the process of enforcing against illegal vacation rentals and we've heard from some guests who have lost their bookings at the last minute). Note that our prices do not include our 13.42% tax - you will be billed separately for that on arrival.
Follow our specific directions, park under the little sign that says "Rainbow Parking" (nose into that sign) ... your front door is left unlocked, with a key inside on the guest information book, and a welcome note is on the front door (with all our phone numbers ... so if you don't see us around, just text me). Please tell us if you plan to arrive after dark, so we can leave lights on in the cottage for you.
Rainbow Lookout would NOT be suitable for wheelchair access because of the stepped approach and the spiral staircase.
Interaction with guests
We leave guest to enjoy their privacy, but we're always available for questions etc and all guests have our personal cell #s.
Other things to note
We are a legally permitted establishment, and our prices do NOT include our 13.42% tax, which we'll ask you to pay on arrival. (But we'll make sure you are reminded before you come).
Again, for the techies or media addicted, please note: WE HAVE NO TV RECEPTION (but we leave a dozen cool DVD's for you and there's a great little video store 15 mins down the road). Our internet service isn't suitable for streaming, but more than adequate for e mails. Cell service can be spotty, but we provide a landline for your exclusive use in your cottage and all on-island phone calls are free.
We make the security and privacy of our guests a priority and as such request that only registered guests use our facilities. If you would like non-registered guests to visit you while you are here, please make arrangements in advance of your arrival. Mahalo.
