We can't gush enough about this "hidden" oasis - it really is a bit of heaven. If you want to feel like the most spoiled last people on Earth, this... read more is the place for you. Accommodations were homey and comfy (the dining room table which sitting at has you looking out over the ocean is itself a work of art!), facilities fantastic (more below on those), and hosts very warm and welcoming. Kiddo loved the pool, and the hot tub; Mr and Mrs have to agree with her. Access to some beach gear was a bonus for folks who travel light. We were fortunate to stay in the Ocean Lookout which is worth the extra money for the space and the stunning views. We encourage you to take the short walk to the cliff’s end to better appreciate the wonderful environs from which Sharyn and Jeff have created a truly special place to stay.
Sharyn has been the best Airbnb host of all places we have stayed! Her attention to detail and ability to make such a far away place feel like home is... read more unmatched. The star look out exceeded our expectations and the cliff walk is the icing on the cake! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to have an intimate Hawaiian experience!
We had an amazing family vacation using the Lookout House and two of the cottages. The houses and property were beautiful and perfect for our group of 8 adults and... read more a toddler. Sharyn and Jeff are great hosts and were responsive to all of our needs. We highly recommend this property.
What a gem!
This beautiful location has been meticulously built and created in such a harmonious way that blends perfectly with the natural surroundings within and outside its premises.

The views, THE VIEWS!!! Nothing can prepare you for such magnificence. The location is BEYOND magical, with vivid and vibrant 180+ degrees of splendour!!!
Its host Sharyn was ALWAYS responsive, honestly and pristinely friendly; you can quickly tell she loves and enjoys to share the rejuvenating power this place has to offer. She automatically brought a level of comfort to my stay that blended beautifully with the cozy and tropical decoration inside and outside the lookout. Just so much gorgeousness all over!
This is the place to encounter nature, serenity, and the greatest of positive island vibes. Perhaps with your loved ones, or simply with/by yourself, as I did. Honestly, this became a "medicinal" experience to my whole being... and I'll be ready for more.
Sharyn is a one of a kind hostess, very communicative, warm and welcoming. We were greeted with flowers artfully strewn throughout the house, a basket of fresh fruit, bottle of... read more wine, chocolate macadamia nuts and even eggs, bread
and coffee for breakfast. We were quite touched by the beautiful welcome.
The top floor allows breathtaking 180 degree views of the ocean, palm trees, flowers and lush greenery. Sunrise here is a wonderful experience. It’s a great way to start your day.
A big plus for this location is it’s only 10-15 minutes from the Twin Falls on the Hana Highway. It’s your first major stop on that journey. This is a big asset at the end of a long day when you get to go home while everyone else has to continue driving exhausted to the other side of Maui. I highly recommend this house. More
This was a stunning experience for our family in the Lookout house. We left feeling transformed by the beauty, the ocean views, the tranquil quiet... and the many many... read more thoughtful touches by host Sharyn including gorgeous flowers all over the home, breakfast in the fridge after a late night arrival. Sharyn makes you feel so welcome, like coming home to an old friend, available for every need yet giving you space to just be. The ocean views from the lookout house are heavenly... we gazed upon sun rises, watched nourishing rain showers, and smiled upon multiple rainbows every day from the deck. The pool while shared was beautiful and private, we never saw another guest upon our stay. We enjoyed the private hot tub, the grill and outdoor deck for dinners. The home was colorful, thoughtful, the beds were extremely comfortable. We were able to enjoy walks and yoga in the front, a snooze in the hammock. The flowers and lushness of the property were incredibly lovely. The location was excellent for all of our upcountry adventures and hopping on the road to Hana upon our departure. I have traveled to many places and my boys watched me actually tear up leaving this sacred place. It is extremely special, you really do not want to be anywhere else. More

We took advantage of location proximity exploring east Maui (Hana side) through North Shore, Central Maui and Upcountry while staying at Sharyn’s property. Did I mention the on prem swim... read more pool, hot tub, cliff walk, self pick tropical fruits and kids loving chicken coop! Previously everyone has been talking about seeing a turtle or two. Come here visiting North Shore, we saw few dozens of them sunbathing late afternoon on Ho'okipa Beach! And thanks to Sharyn’s and her staff’s hospitality, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!!!
A perfect location for us, wanting off the busy tourist areas. Beautiful setting and grounds. And the host really knocked it out of the park with the thoughtful touches and... read more provisions. This was our first visit to Maui, and overall we prefer Kauai. However, I think we will go back to Maui just to stay here again. The outdoor shower was amazing.
If you are open to a more natural and laid back experience this is the place for you!! Sharyn is incredibly sweet and communicative. From the day we booked, I... read more knew that we were in for a really special experience. Meeting her in person was just as pleasant! She greeted us on the pathway driving up and directed us to Star Cottage. The cottage was charming and well appointed with special touches and flowers placed everywhere. Being a bit away from the hustle and bustle of Maui, the fresh eggs, bread, fruit and coffee were so helpful and appreciated. Having breakfast in the cottage was a treat each morning. The outdoor shower was strong and hot and the hot tub was exhilarating to sit in during some intermittent tropical rain! The whole property is abundant in lush flora and tropical fruit plants. I enjoyed just exploring around the grounds. The cliff lookout path took our breath away, we went for sunrise our first morning. This is a different way to experience Maui than I have ever had before and has stolen my heart all over again! Fifteen Stars for Star Cottage!!!!
We had a wonderful stay in the lookout house in February 2022! The house is exactly like the pictures, including the amazing 3-sided view of the ocean and Haleakala from... read more the living room. We turned the chairs to face outward and watched the sunrise there every day. The beds are comfortable, kitchen well equipped, hot tub warm & bubbly, and the pool refreshing (though unheated, so a bit cold in winter). The setting is super private - the only times we saw other guests in 10 days were a couple times as we were driving off the property. We loved staying in this hidden corner of Maui, which is beautiful, lush, and not crowded by other people. That said, it is remote (about a half hour to Paia, the nearest town), so if you want night life, easy access to restaurants, etc, this probably isn’t the spot for you. Hosts Sharyn and Jeff were available but generally hands-off unless needed, which we appreciated.
An amazing property, by far our favorite accommodation on a multi istand trip. The special touches, amenities and views were beyond expectations. Abundant Sliding glass doors and windows... read more worked well so you could create just the right breeze at all times. Comfort with a view from just about anywhere in the living spaces. There is a cliff walk for a closer view. This place puts you in touch with nature and will make you want to just hang out. We enjoyed the jacuzzi and the pool area is beautifully tropical. That said the road to hana is right at your feet and a must do for adventure... We loved it and you will too.....
It’s hard to even put into words how spectacular Huelo Point Lookout is. The pics and videos definitely can’t capture the true beauty and feeling of the property. We loved... read more having all the windows open to the amazing breeze. We loved the beautiful flowers and thoughtful gifts that were there for our arrival. We stayed at the Rainbow cottage and it was really breathtaking to watch the sun rise from our windows every morning and we also saw rainbows everyday! We really enjoyed walking the property full of gorgeous flowers and fruit trees, feeding the chickens, walking to the cliff for sunset and the pool and hot tub! Sharyn and Jeff have a piece of paradise here and we feel so lucky we found it! We will definitely be staying here again when we come back to Maui. It was the perfect location to everything you want to see in the area and yet private and peaceful away from tourists. Thank you so much for everything Sharyn and Jeff! More

Our second visit here. We were here from the day after Christmas till the day after New Years day. We arrived and there were snacks in the fridge; my wife... read more has Celiac (allergen to Gluten) and Sharyn made sure our snacks were gluten free. What a nice welcome. This place is easy to find, even in the dark. The road is a country road, just keep following the instructions on google map. Easy to find. This place looks over the ocean, maybe a 1/4 mile away, the view is beautiful. It is a two story house, lots of windows facing the ocean with a porch on the upper and the lower level. Only two of us, but we rented the entire house. We slept in the second floor bedroom where one can see the moonrise over the ocean and the sunrise over the ocean. The bedroom had a patio door to the porch; although open to the porch, it is really private. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the cooking items one would need. You need to supply your own food. There is a gas grill on the rear covered porch off the kitchen, and there is a large table on that covered porch too. The kitchen has a large beautiful table, one could seat 10 or more people at that table and still have room. The lower floor has a washer and dryer and another full bathroom. There is an outdoor hot tub on the lower level that is very secluded; one feels like they are in the middle of the jungle, well, I guess one would be at this place. We enjoyed the home so much that we stayed there for about 3 days without really going out except for walking about the property and 'neighborhood'. It's a tropical area and at the time we were there the weather would follow a cycle of wind, then rain, then wind, then the sun would come out, then the cycle would start all over again. It was beautiful and warm. When we wanted more sun we went to the other side of the island; don't let this description scare you, this property is on the way to Hana, so it is a tropical environment. It was what we wanted. Sharyn takes care of the tropical bugs in a reasonable 'makes sense' way, Cedar oil in small straws in key places, and a lizard population. It's pretty cool, one might see one or two lizards on the wall in the living room doing their job. They are harmless, we both have lived in areas where lizards are in the house. In short, although this place is secluded in a jungle, no bugs, even on the porch. There is parking for your rental car that is covered. There was a TV with an assortment of movies, but we never used it, no need. Summer would probably be warm, but there is a pool 20 feet from the house. The pool is shared with other guests. If you want a fabulous place in the country away from the tourist side of the island, this is the place. It really doesn't get any better. It was just what we desired. Two couples could easily stay here, or an entire family. It is set up for that with board games to play as well. We'll come back again for a third visit, we're working out the details. For us winter is nicer since we live in the cold Midwest. If you want to live like a local for a week, have peace and quiet and have beautiful scenery in a place secluded in a jungle, this is it. It doesn't get any better. I highly recommend this as a place to stay.
