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.
After spending a few days on the south shore snorkeling for the "beach half" of our vacation, my wife and I stayed here for four nights for the "jungle half."... read more It was incredible! It can be easy to feel like a clueless tourist on Maui (because, face it, you probably are!) but this quiet, peaceful corner allows you to relax away from the hustle and bustle of the prime tourist destinations - while still being minutes away from them!
The place is a couple miles into the Road to Hana, so we felt especially smug about getting a head start on our Hana day trip to beat the heaviest of tourist traffic, and the drive back from Hana was much shorter than it would've been had we stayed elsewhere on the island, so that was a major perk! We also loved just relaxing in the private hot tub under the night sky (great stargazing), laying by the pool, and checking in on the chickens.
Everything felt very private. Sharyn was extremely welcoming. This B&B is clearly very loved. 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
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 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.
Huelo Lookout has a lot to offer if you are looking for an off the beaten path, beautiful Hawaiian stay. Situated off the lower north eastern shore, we were greeted... read more with a beautiful welcome package from Sharyn, the home adorned with flowers inviting us into every space of Rainbow lookout. We utilized every aspect of the property from the sea cliff walk, the impeccably clean hot tub, to the very refreshing pool after a long day hiking. The bathroom and outdoor shower are absolutely beautiful, no detail left out. Say hi to the chix at least once, they were very friendly and gave us a taste of home while we stayed on Maui. No need to leave if you are looking to just indulge the senses and enjoy the local life of a Hawaiian, it was wonderfully quiet, and we felt we had the entire place to our own. We will absolutely be coming back again, a true diamond in the hills! Thank you so much for what you’ve created Sharyn and Jeff.
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. More
Prepare to be enchanted the minute you set foot on this lovely, secluded property - and one that happens to be in an incredibly ideal location! My wife and I... read more grabbed the opportunity to book a last-minute, 5-night stay at the Ocean Lookout, and I can easily say it was one of the best travel decisions we've made yet. Just a short drive from the airport, you take a short side road and enter a property lush and full of life - not to mention epic, EPIC views of the north coast on one side, Haleakala on the other. It's your call whether you want to explore the trails on the Road to Hana, roll into Paia for a great meal, or try a beach just across the way. Heck, maybe you'll just stay and enjoy the house's quiet vibes, or that hot tub at the end of your day! Everything feels possible from here, and your hosts are charming and eager to share their recommendations. You see, Maui had been our very first trip off-mainland 12 years earlier, and after a tough experience we'd been bypassing it in favor of the Big Island. But after this recent stay at the Lookout, we got a look at how gorgeous and welcoming Maui truly can be - and I'll say we're back in love with the isle. Thanks Huelo Point - hope to return ASAP!
I cannot say enough good things about our experience at this rental. The location feels very tucked away, but it's close to both Haiku town and Paia. It's also on... read more the road to Hana, so some of the amazing things to explore are right around the corner. Close to the unit you can hike, get to Twin Falls, and see amazing views! We loved going to the lookout to see the ocean and the cliffs. The rental has everything you need and more. Sharyn is an incredible host. She provides some local treats and very special gifts that make you feel at home when you arrive. We love love loved the outdoor shower and hot tub, especially at night when you can see the stars. This was the kind of place you both want to come back to and want to recommend to all of your friends and family. 11/10!

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.

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!
