About the property

House, 1 Bedroom with loft (Sleeps 2-4)

We are the Hidden Jewel on the North Shore of Huelo and once you find us ~ you have found Shangri-la ~ the lost paradise.

Maui Eco Retreat is legally permitted B&B (Permit SUP2 2007/0005 BBPH 2009/0003 TAT/ TAX ID W40484296-01) which means your reservation is always safe with us.

Our Thai Hale Bamboo Eco house (ha-lay, which means “house” in Hawaiian) is an exotic place to relax and enjoy the secluded nature of this sacred Hawaiian land. It was designed to bring masculine and feminine energies together in a smooth flow of yin and yang, with both round and square shapes working in harmony. Intricately carved Balinese doors begin your journey from the path to the house, with wrap around covered lanai (porch), as the eye catching roof line – inspired by Thai temples.

Built entirely of renewable bamboo, decorated with elegant furnishings, stained glass and art, this abode is truly a green jewel.

Beside the queen size bed on the ground floor this cottage has a loft with one single bed and enough space for an additional 4th person if needed. The Thai Hale comes equipped with a full private kitchen and bathroom.

Let your senses be awakened with the exquisite taste of color and beauty with the additional unique location setting.
