My family stayed at Hale Mauka Makai for 10 days and we wished we could have stayed for 100 days. From the time we first emailed Claudia to when Claudia met us at the home to the day we left, we felt completely at ease. Claudia really has a gift for hospitality, and it shows in the pride she takes to make sure her guests want for nothing. The house literally has everything you need for a Maui vacation. Ice coolers? Check. Bodyboards? Check. Beach umbrellas? Check. Snorkling gears! Check. And on and on it goes. The house. Everything written about the house is true. But no pictures or written words can describe the feeling of serenity and peace you feel when you inhabit it. You soon realize that everyone staying with you in the house is experiencing the same thing you are. And then it hits you how special your vacation really is.
“Serenity in Maui”
My husband and I spent eight days at this lovely property, and quite simply, was the best house rental, and the best vacation we have ever taken. There are not enough words to tell you how beautiful the home is with all the stunning landscaping, yummy fruit trees,and great, private saltwater pool. The home is immaculate, and luxurious. Extremely clean, and absolutely stunning. Very comfortably furniture and great beds. Claudia, the owner is charming, and will be there when you need her for anything. Please, do yourself a favor and stay in this home. It is paradise!
“We found paradise at Hale Mauka Makai!!”
We love Hale Mauka Makai!! We were searching all over Hawaii for the perfect place, a pool, a view, land, privacy and all the amenities that make a vacation easy and memorable. Claudia was beyond knowledgable, friendly and professional. She couldn't have been better or more helpful in any way. The house is a dream. The location is perfection. Easily accessible to the town, the best beaches on the island and top notch local restaurants just down the street. I miss it all so much! The long driveway is flanked by palm trees and surrounded by organic vegetable, fruit and herb gardens and leads to the private house on a large plot of grassy land. Inside the beautifully decorated and perfectly laid out house you really feel all the stresses of life melt away. The kitchen is perfect. We cooked a lot and Bbq'ed outside on the deck overlong the gorgeous land and ocean. The breeze in the house was divine. The beds were like clouds! We even had an a/C delivered that Claudia handled so kindly and she also arranged for pick up as we never needed it once. Our mainland friends told us we would need one in the middle of august, but on the north shore, the trade winds are always blowing so no worries ever! The weather was blissful. The pool is a dream. Morning and night swimming were daily rituals along with picking guavas from the trees in the yard. There wasn't one thing I would change about our stay here. Everything was taken care of and we cannot wait to go back!! So happy we discovered this gem!
“We found Paradise!”
Hale Mauka Makai was everything my family and I hoped it would be and more. My husband, two daughters (ages 9 and 12) and I are from Rhode Island and have never been off the East Coast. We were very excited to be spending 10 days in Maui! It has always been our dream vacation and Hale Mauka Makai lived up to every expectation we had (and then some!). Claudia and Kevin were the perfect hosts. They gave us a detailed tour of the house and the grounds so that we were completely comfortable with everything that the property had to offer us. After the tour we did not see them for the rest of our time there...they understood that we would want our privacy during our stay in this amazing home. The house was pristine and beautifully decorated. The pool was amazing!!! We made time to swim and lounge by the pool every single day that we were there (sometimes during the day to soak up the sun and other times at night swimming under the stars). 5 stars doesn't seem like enough when rating Hale Mauka Makai... It is perfection and I can't think of one thing I would have changed about it.
Stayed w/family, Becky Daniels, for 5 days. The house is so beautiful and the owner thought of everything! All the amenities of home, including hair dryer, dinnerware, etc. The owner was so amenable and saw to our needs. What I liked best was the ocean and mountain views,
“Hale Mauka Makai”
We stayed at Hale Mauka Makai May 28-June 7 in 2013. This house in Haiku on Maui is a wonderful vacation property. First, to echo some other reviews, it's really odd that the pictures on the site do not do the property justice. It's better in person and everything Claudia writes about the property is understated. It is hard to describe just how relaxing this house when the windows are open and the trades are flowing through the home. A few notes: the kitchen is well maintained. You will have everything you need to cook (or grill) and make dinner. We made most of our meals while there, and alternated between eating on the lanai or inside in the dining room. Claudia is very proud about her espresso/cappuccino set up and a great way to start your day. The kids spent hours in the pool. There is a chest of pool toys that were well used by all of us, and there are plenty of beach towels. Haiku, of course, is about as far away from the resorts at Kaanapali and Kapalua as one can get and still by on the same island. This location is for people that want to get out and do things, then come 'home' for the evening. On activities, Claudia referred us to Hawaiian Paddle Sports for a few of our outings. The owner, Tim, coaches outrigger teams and coached Claudia who is a steersman on a club team. We kayaked, paddled and surfed with Tim's company (Tim for outrigger paddling and Patrick for kayaking and surfing). These were excellent outings. We did go out for pizza in Haiku at Colleen's, which is a nice local spot and Paia is only a few minutes away. We ate at Mama's Fish House on our last day and ate at the Paia Fish Market and several other places for lunch. We did most of our food shopping at Costco, which is also fairly close in Kahului. The beaches at Hookipa and Paia are close and great beaches. To sum up, we couldn't have been happier with Hale Mauka Makai. It was better than expected and Claudia made us welcome. We will be coming back.
“Perfect home for a private and relaxing vacation”
This home is very beautiful and everything as described and more. We enjoyed the privacy and beautiful property. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. Had a fantastic vacation and are already planning our next visit.
This home is absolutely amazing! The pictures you see on this and other websites seem too good to be true, but they aren't!! The pool is just that beautiful, the house is just that serene, the lawns and gardens are just that lush and well-maintained. We went there with our two teenage daughters and their aunts (our sisters) for our 20th wedding anniversary. It was perfect! There was enough room for everyone to have their space and enough common areas for us all to spend time together. The kitchen is fully equipped, as is every other room in the house. There was nothing that we needed that was not provided. One of the most special parts of our time at the house was when Claudia (the owner) gave us the tour of the house and more importantly the garden, which she has created from scratch with loving care. Coming from the high mountains of Colorado our children didn't know what papaya trees looked like, but Claudia showed them to us and picked some papayas for us to eat. She also welcomed us to her garden and we ate salads made from it nearly every day that we were there. We also traveled the entire island when we were there. We spent a day at Kihei, a day at Lahaina, a day at Ka'anapali, a day in Kula, a day going to Hana, and a lot of time in Paia and Kahului. Our favorite place on the island, by far, was area around the house, including Paia and Haiku. We had an amazing stay and will always remember our 20th anniversary trip as one filled with sunshine, blue skies, fun, family, warmth, laughter, good food, new friends and lots of fabulous activities and memories. Our heartfelt gratitude to Claudia and her family for her home and for making our stay so incredibly special!
“Best Place in Maui!”
My family just spent a week at Hale Mauka Makai and had a fantastic time. The house is top-notch with everything you could possibly want and the 5 acres surrounding the property are absolutely stunning. In fact, it's so well provisioned, welcoming and beautiful that we often had to force ourselves to leave to do anything more. Located on the North Shore, it's much quieter and less touristy than other places, but never lacks for things to do within close proximity. The beaches are beautiful and un-crowded with plenty of safe spots for children to swim and play in the ocean. For those who like to surf, wind sail or boogie board, I'm not sure it gets any better than here. Claudia and Kevin are excellent hosts too. It's clear from their actions that everything they do is intended to make their guests stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. They are wealth of information; detail oriented and totally focused on Customer Service. I would highly recommend staying at the Hale Mauka Makai to all my friends and family as the best place in Maui!
We have just spent a wonderful week at this amazing house. A truly special experience , from picking oranges every morning for our orange juice to lounging in the peaceful surroundings by the pool. The house is spacious, tranquil and serene. We had a very special holiday! The house is exceptionally well equipped and provided with all necessities including Nespresso machine. Joy!. A must in our case! The beds are comfortable too. For a truly extraordinary and relaxing time, you cannot do better than rent this wonderful property.
