Description of the Ohana. Entire upstairs unit, large space (over 500sq. ft. ). The outside kitchenette located on the covered lanai was designed specifically so you wouldn't be looking at a kitchen in your studio. This makes the studio much more spacious than other studios you'll find with an interior kitchen.You'll have your own private driveway and entrance. Landscaped drive with arika palms leading to a landing with 6 steps to the upstairs lanai and room. You will be our only guests, there is no interaction with shared spaces. The spacious bathroom is attached to the room. The studio is in the upper rear of the home away from our rooms. The lanai has a magnificent view of the ocean, natural mango wood custom table, and a beautiful terracotta deck. On the covered lanai is a simple cooking facility with a small refrigerator, as well as a hot plate, toaster, coffee and pots and pans for cooking. The spacious living area (525 sq ft.) ... little hard to tell by the pictures. Most guests are pleasantly surprised. Hand made custom mango tables, new maple laminate flooring, flat screen tv with all channels including HBO and Showtime. Guide maps provided. Large chest of drawers with plenty of room for your clothes and plenty of space on top to place luggage and personal items, as well as a very comfortable king size bed. Fresh linens, bath and beach towels provided. The attached bathroom has a large Jacuzzi tub with shower attachment. It is Hawaiian tradition to remove our shoes before entering a home. If you are not comfortable barefoot you may want to pack slippers.
Should I stay on Maui's North Shore? It's not a developed resort destination. Do you like an active vacation, love hiking,waterfalls, being closer to nature and escape the tourist hustle and bustle? Do you enjoy experiencing green, natural life styles and like to get away from it all and still close enough to drive back in from all locations of the island? Something to ponder and help you decide what kind of experience you have in mind for your Maui vacation. * No additional charges....Taxes included*.
You will have wifi, Jacuzzi tub, t.v.surfboards, boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels as well as directions to all the fun spots on Maui. Our expertise of the area is unique as we all well versed in Hawaiian culture and the surfing world.
Interaction with guests
We will greet you on arrival, show you where to park, show you the space and answer any questions you may have about Maui as we are 45 year residents. You have private entrance and we respect your privacy.

*Weather today, Haiku: low 80's.. light/moderate trade winds
^^^Another beautiful Maui day
* Twin Falls. Beautiful flowers, trees and ferns to enjoy. Nice walk to waterfalls.Its great if you're not able to get to Hana. Just a couple miles from us. I was there this week and the waterfalls are really great right now. The pools felt so refreshing on a warm day. There is a fruit stand makes great pineapple and coconut smoothies.
* Halehaku bay aka: Pilali bay is located at the end of our road!! There is a lookout and a hiking trail to the bay. This is an "off the beaten track bay". So far this gem hasn't been discovered by the masses. Summer is the best time for swimming and diving.
* Going to Hana? Be sure to go to Hamoa beach! Great for swimming in crystal clear water.
* I highly recommend the Al'i Nui boat cruise. I recently did a 3hr snorkel trip. The catamaran is brand new, the staff and service is impeccable. Super fun and safe diving.
* Honeymooners! Discover the perfect Hawaiian island (or two) for your honeymoon. Head to health centered Maui for the wellness-obssessed...daily yoga classes paddleboarding, hike Haleakala crater, pilates, spend the night in Hana and eat locally sourced food
