Stay on this organic permaculture private orchard spot - on the southeast rim above Waipio Valley. It looks to the ocean Southeast, North and Northwest up the undeveloped rugged coastline. Many say it is the "best location and has the best views" of any rental in the region!
Sometimes there are a multitude of waterfalls seen cascading down 1500'-2000' cliffs into the sea. The property has its own 650 foot year-round waterfall seen from the black sand beach below!
Gaze at lush tropical trees, flowers and enjoy short paths through the property. Stunning views face 23 miles of Waipio's cliffs, backed up by undeveloped jungle. Whales jumping and breaching can be seen from the property during the winter/spring. Maui is visible on clear days. The area boasts a perfect climate of just enough rain to keep the streams going and the flowers blooming, cool trades off the ocean, and an average daytime year-round temperature of between 70 and 88 degrees, with cooler nights.
Listen to the peaceful sounds of the Waiulili Stream and its waterfall running through the property and over a 650' cliff. Waipio Lookout is 1/2 mile away.
