Overview

Launiupoko House Rental Photos and Description

Private Home on a Beautiful 6 Acre Farm 3bdrm/2bath. FULLY PERMITTED & LICENSED!

Have you ever experienced a place so so special that you bring your mind to that place when you need a spiritual lift?

Have you ever traveled to a place that that you find yourself trying to explain to your friends and loved ones of the magic you felt while being there?

The Guest Ranch at the Lahaina Animal Farm is that kind of place...

On the beautiful island of Maui with unobstructed views of the deep blue ocean, and the majestic west Maui mountains is where this 'visual vitamin' exists. A slice of paradise that will not only make your eyes happy, but your heart sing.

Imagine yourself watching whales (seasonal) from the privacy of your lanai (porch).

This cozy 3-bedroom farmhouse is on a 'flag' lot and has 'movie star' privacy. Perfect for visitors who are looking for a unique, high standard place to stay, who seek privacy and have a sense for the exquisite things in life. The house is located on the upper 2 acres of this 6-acre animal farm. The 4-acres below feature an variety of farm animals that will win your heart over!

Start your morning with a soak in the hot tub while watching the sunrise over the West Maui Mountains. End your day gazing at a beautiful Maui sunset with your favorite drink, food and loved one(s). The evening offers stunning sunsets, animals frolicking in our green pastures, and don't forget to experience the brilliance of a Maui star studded sky.

An abundance of hiking/biking trails abound for our guest to explore by foot, bike or horseback. A short drive down the mountain is a favorite beach park ideal for surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling, and has a natural baby pool that is shallow.

Lahaina, one of the centers of ocean activities and night-life including food and shopping, is just minutes away, and Lahaina happens to be a town steeped in historical significance. That's a great 'package' for visitors with a sense for culture and quality. This location is truly amazing!

About Teresa Waters

I have lived in Maui since 1987. I started a DMC/Event planning company in 1988, and sold the company in 2000. I am operating and care taking my dream… A Private Guest Ranch in Maui!

I love training/breeding the animals, chickens, sheep, goat, pigs, donkey, tortoises, and hanging out in the hammock by the pond. The pizza oven is an amazing addition, and I have so much fun creating the perfect 'pie' with friends and family.

Life in Maui doesn't get much better than this!

Teresa Waters purchased this house in 2004

Why Teresa Waters chose Launiupoko

The 180 degree ocean/mountain views, and privacy of this unique deluxe farm home are spectacular! The location of this farm house is so quiet and private.

It's only a 2 minute drive down the mountain to my favorite surf (and family friendly) beach park. The beauty and peace of my tropical island farm life is amazing!

The historic and beachside town of Lahaina is less than 5 minutes away. 15 minutes to Kaanapali Resort!

What makes this house unique

unobstructed ocean and mountain views

unique farm animals on the lower 4 acres

tranquil fish pond on property

whale watch from lanai (porch)

spectacular sunsets & star gazing

close proximity to beaches, shopping & resorts

privacy and peacefulness...

unbelievable moon rises, sunsets & star gazing

pizza oven and covered pavilion

Fully licensed & permitted by state & county!

Great stay Nov-Dec 2014

  • of 5
This was a great place to stay in west maui with amazing ocean and mountain views. The landscape and overall scenery of the home is outstanding. Sweeping ocean views in front of the house (and from the master suite), and dramatic maui mountain views from the other bedrooms and back of home. Views of both from the hot tub!

Only 10 minute drive to downtown lahaina and even less to some great beaches for lounging + snorkeling.

The home was clean, with tasteful decorating and a beautiful lanai to drink our morning coffee and watch the sun set.

It was also a unique stay to be at a working animal farm and we quickly grew to love the several animals on the farm including a rambunctious goat, a friendly burrow, the piglets, beautiful horses, among many others. Feeding the animals became a favorite morning ritual, following drinking coffee on the lanai. I wish I'd had time to take the horses on a trail ride (available for an additional fee), but alas, our time passed too quickly.

Our family often rents homes on HomeAway and this was a great setting for our family (two 30-something couples, and our 60-something parents). The home came equipped with most, but not all amenities (really just kitchen items) I've experienced at other property rentals, particularly in this price range. That being said, once we bought all the below-mentioned items, we made some lovely meals that we enjoyed on the tables under the gazebo. Our family went off to another HomeAway rental on Oahu, so sadly took our below-purchased articles with us.

Included:
- High quality bath towels and beach towels (more than enough for the whole family)
- 2 beach chairs
- outside gas grill
- traditional coffee maker
- in-unit washer/dryer with laundry soap but no dryer sheets

Not included (should bring yourself)
- coffee filters
- laundry dryer sheets
- ALL kitchen food items (including salt, pepper, olive oil, seasonings, aluminum foil, ziplock baggies, etc), cookware/dishes are included
- carrots. We happily bought a few bags of carrots during our trip to feed the animals

Teresa was really prompt and helpful before and after our trip. Our security deposit was promptly returned.

Overall, we were very pleased with our rental, the location of the rental, and would definitely stay here again. This was a great location to be our base for hiking (recommend the lahaina Pali trail about 10 miles south of the property or the Wainee trail about 45 minutes away in north mau

Thoroughly Delightful, Magical, Beautiful

  • 5 of 5
Staying here for five nights during our 15-night vacation on Maui was unquestionably the best decision for our family of two adults and two kids (12 and 9). WE LOVED IT!. I could go on and on . . . . The house is lovely, the beds are comfortable, it was immaculate, and we felt instantly at home. The view is simply spectacular. We slept with the drapes open so as not to miss a moment, even at night! Teresa is a dream to work with -- helpful, present, warm. And the farm! Wow! The kids were in heaven -- playing with the mini-horses (including newly born colt, Julio), the goats, Elsie the donkey . . . . It was all magical, from start to finish. And the location was great for us. Close enough to Lahaina, but with a car, everything is fairly close on Maui. For example, we did the Road to Hana and came back through the "back" highway (highly recommended) and did it all in a long day. For those of you like us for whom the cost was a bit of a stretch, I can only tell you that we had not a single moment of regret or doubt once we were there. The memories are priceless. Mahalo, Teresa.

Beautiful home and property

  • 5 of 5
We had our wedding and reception on the property and stayed in the house for three nights.
The house is beautiful, clean, and comfortable. I was impressed with the personal touches (greeted with fresh eggs/herbs and a tour of the home and property). The view is spectacular, and visiting the animals was one of the highlights of our stay!

I was so happy that we had a private getaway that was still close to beaches, dining, and shopping. We hope to return to the farm in the distant future!

Great family island getaway

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for 10 days with our 3 and 1 year old daughters. No other properties for 50 yards....feels like your own farm. Early morning you have the animal farm for yourselves including ponies, horses, ducks, chickens, pigs, etc, etc. ( our 3 year old " fished " tadpoles each morning with a little net for an hour)
The closest beach is 7 minutes drive and only 20 minutes to the very child friendly Napili, Kanapali, beaches.
Would recommend this for anyone with a young family or for any other group needing a bigger accommodation.

Amazing views and amazing hospitality

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with our 8 month daughter and absolutely loved it! Views are amazing in every direction! Beautiful mountains in the back yard, ocean views out the front of the house, and beautiful sunset views of Lanai every evening! There's also a very well maintained paved nature trail that goes right by the house as well.

The animal farm was also a lot of fun. You can tell the animals are taken care of very well, and its a lot of fun to walk out your front yard to give bread to the goats and carrots to the horses.

Best of all was the hospitality. Teresa was great, the right balance between attentive and helpful, yet providing you with your own privacy and seclusion.

We absolutely loved the house and can't wait to come back again!
