SECLUDED COUNTRY ESTATE, SOLAR POWERED

Haiku House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-10)

Windward Garden is a recently opened and permitted three bedroom, two and a half bath tropical plantation-style home located in a quiet north shore community along the coast of Maui. Solar-powered and entirely off the grid, with pristine well-water, this lovely home sits at the foot of the lowland jungle with its abundance of tropical flora and fauna. Down a winding country road in a secluded area, you'll have privacy and an eco-conscious vacation experience, surrounded with lush foliage, many specimen palm trees, an ocean breeze and native plants and birds. It can be a peaceful and romantic interlude.

It offers a spacious and gracious living area (3000 sf) with an additional 1500 sf of decks and lanais, with ocean views. All hardwood floors and high ceilings. A four acre tropical foliage and flower farm surrounds it, with walking gardens and large lawns replete with fruit trees, flowering trees and orchids.

The Ariel Suite and the August Suite are large bedrooms with a lanai overlooking the ocean. Each has two shared baths (one full and one half bath), a queen bed, 2 futons (upon request) and can accommodate 2 adults and 2 children. A desk with wi-fi and a seating area are also provided.

The Master Suite has a private attached bathroom, is 400sf, and has a garden view balcony. The spacious room includes seating area and king bed. A favorite with honeymooners. Futons for two children are available.

A full kitchen-dining room are provided for use of guests as well as washer-dryer.

Our entire community is alternatively powered by solar and is a prototype for other alternative communities, with generator assistance and gas appliances, inviting you to experience a green lifestyle in an environmentally conscious setting.

Activities in the area include hiking to the ocean cliffs along the old Kings Road, swimming in the freshwater pools with cascading waterfalls and attending Maya Yoga classes at the nearby Yoga Center, where nationally acclaimed teachers are in residence much of the year. Stargazing and whale watching could also become a pastime. Many visitors to this area consider their vacation a spiritual retreat and personal renewal.

We are family friendly and family owned and operated. A full kitchen is included. There is a gas grill and outdoor seating on the full wrap-around porch. Please inquire about more rooms and rates.

We hand built this home from the ground up when we were young, salvaging 50 year old Coos Bay fir to build the floors, windows and doors. All the interior doors are original as is the the hardware. We planted every tree on the property and effectively gentrified the jungle, creating a serene tropical paradise to relax in and enjoy. We enjoy being creative with everything we do and believe that our life is our art.

Susan and Chris Gebb purchased this house in 1977

We chose to move to Huelo because of it's pristine environment, with clean air, pure water wells, and quiet surroundings. The rivers that run through this area flow all year round and provide recreation and contemplation for the community. The tropical climate allows the cultivation of orchids which flourish in the trees, and exotic flowers and foliage, which has provided a livelihood for our family for many years.

Our family has always had an interest in surfing and we are situated between 2 of the best surfing spots on the Island. Miles of country lanes provide scenic hiking and jogging. Quiet, starlit nights and the whispering trade winds make for blissful sleep. Low EMF environment contributes to the tranquility of the surroundings. Clean air, well water and quiet are the essence of the visitor experience.

We had an outstanding stay at this beautiful B & B! The house and property are absolutely stunning. Our room was large, immaculate and had a beautiful lanai with a gorgeous ocean view! The owners were very warm, welcoming and wonderful cooks! We really enjoyed our time and look forward to our next stay there!

Great value, paradise-like setting, luxurious accommodation

The best part is the owners: they are so nice and attentive, they make you feel like family.

The pictures don't do justice, the house, the kitchen, furniture, sweeping balconies and the garden feel like a multi-million dollar villa in a tropical paradise. We feel very lucky and privileged to have found this place.

This was our first visit to Maui. Having coffee with the owners every morning and talking about planning the day, travelling tips, details only the locals would know was priceless. I feel we have easily seen twice as much than if we had relied only on our guidebooks and maps. There is so much more to staying here than just the bedroom and the facilities. It was hard to leave in the morning to explore Maui's treasures, the house itself was alone worth the trip.

There are not words to describe our stay...but I'll try! Chris and Susan were most generous hosts, mahalo. Their gorgeous home was the perfect fit for our family of 6, and the location was superb. We feel as though we found, yet another wonderful secret corner in Maui, with the lush grounds at Windward Garden. The trek to the local pools was awesome.

We can't get back soon enough!

All of the previous reviews sum up an experence with Susan and Chris at Windward Gardens perfectly. There is little more to add to perfection! I can not imagine a better experience of true Hawaii than our stay. We had a 2 night stay which is just not long enough. Susan and Chris are wonderful hosts and can give you wonderful ideas for your travel and dining anyplace on Maui. If we have the opportunity to visit Hawaii again Windward Gardens will be first on our list to visit again.

Our home away from home!

My husband and I have been coming to Maui since 1985. This was our 8th trip and our children's second. We have seen many changes in the island but staying at Windward Garden for a week was by far the finest experience ever. The home and property put us back in time . A time of grace, calm, serenity and paradise. All the words Hawaii was known for. Susan and Chris are as much a part of this as the home they made from a jungle. My children 15 & 13 enjoyed every bit of it as much as we did. The walks to the beautiful ocean cliffs to swimming in fresh water pools. Thank you Chris for introducing my son and husband to Bocce. They intend to continue play here in Texas! The breakfast that Susan and Chris serve is beyond words. Fruit from the gardens to start,Hawaiian coffee, pancakes and eggs no need for lunch. My daughter took surfing lessons from Gus, their son and was surfing in no time, highly recommend him as an instructor. To sum it up we will be back again and again. I hope if you love Maui you get to experience Windward Garden you will not want to leave!!
