I had a very wonderful stay on this large property in North Shore Maui. My photo shows me enjoying this most amazing sunset on the ‘wrap around lanai’. I saw some great rainbows from there too. Morning to evening, the lighting changes and the view of the west Maui mountains and the ocean is constantly entertaining.
We were a very short drive to Ho’okipa Beach Park; perhaps the most renowned windsurfing site in the world. The lookout is on the edge of a cliff overlooking “Pavilions” – the popular surfing-end of the beach.
Ho'okipa is ideal for windsurfing because of its large well-shaped waves and strong winds. While it is not a place for beginners, the strong winds and powerful currents is the reason experienced surfers and windsurfers flock to Ho'okipa for recreation and for competitions. It was exciting to watch the surfers out there.
This property had the idea location for our day drive to Hana, as well.
The property is *huge*, and I loved the privacy and the quietness. The owner’s cat came to visit me every morning; we had our own ‘breakfast club’.
I loved the openness of main room, with its hardwood floors and wood beams and ceiling. The spaciousness inside and out made my visit incredibly relaxing. If ever I author a book, I’m going to come to this property to do my writing!
