IAO VALLEY; CENTRALLY LOCATED ON 30 VERDANT ACRES

Wailuku House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 Sleeps

Most definitely a special spot for those who seek connection to the places they visit. Iao Valley Inn mixes the best of a B&B and private vacation rental on 30+ acres of verdant land, gardens, stream and natural swimming holes. There are plenty of options for peace and quiet, romantic strolls, recharging and relaxing just outside your door.

The friendly and available owners live in the attached home. Bob & Tamara are truly exemplary ambassadors of an authentic Maui experience, and are equally happy to allow guests full privacy as they are chatting or providing local insight and connection to Maui. In fact, both Bob & Tamara have deep connections to the community and culture that most long-time residents would be hard-pressed to duplicate – an invaluable resource for those looking for a more meaningful vacation.

Breakfast

A simple breakfast is served continental style daily on the breakfast lanai. Breakfast includes hot & cold cereals, pastries, rolls and/or muffins alongside yummy local fruits, coffee and tea. The fruit and the coffee is often fresh form the gardens!

Your Hosts

Bob & Tamara are genuine, super friendly and incredibly knowledgable about Maui. If authenticity in travel is your thing, you can’t do much better than to connect with them during your stay. Tamara has been Maui County Parks Director and Director of the Maui Historical Society. Bob started Kama’aina Properties in the 70?s and both have always been strongly involved in the Maui community and enjoy sharing their love for Maui.

The Grounds

Iao Stream cuts itself deeply into the 30+ acre property. You can gaze from a cliffside view, or the more adventurous can swim under a waterfall while they take a refreshing dip in the crystal clear plunge pool. (Definitely consult with the owners for safe routes to more hidden pools!) During heavy rain in the mountains, peaceful Iao Stream can turn into a dramatic river that is not advisable to enter (though it is equally enjoyable to watch and relax within earshot.)

Among the gardens are a large collection of orchids – many in bloom – as well as countless examples of many other tropical plants and trees. The land also hosts a small-scale coffee farm and a handful of sheep and chickens can be found grazing in their own corners of the property. Guests are welcomed to visit, feed and enjoy the animals.

Location

Iao Valley Inn is located just outside of Wailuku Town, where the West Maui Mountains split to open into historic and sacred Iao Valley. The location is just ten minutes from the airport and perfect for folks who like to sightsee and plan on exploring all around Maui (something I suggest no matter where you stay!) It’s also quiet and worlds away in attitude and experience from the touristy hotels and resorts.

Iao Valley State Park – a must see – is literally your neighbor. 15 minutes in the other direction takes you to the Maui Ocean Center and the Maalaea harbor for snorkel boats and whale watches. You’re also five miles from Maui Tropical Plantation and and you’re just 15-20 minutes from the resort areas of Kihei & Wailea. Half an hour will get you to West Maui’s Lahaina Town. You’re also a bit closer to a Road to Hana adventure and your visit to Haleakala than the bulk of Maui visitors.

n your immediate neighborhood, Iao Valley is just a minute or two away by car and has hiking trails (Kepaniwai Park just between here and Iao Valley is a great spot for a picnic.) The North Shore of West Maui starts close to here as well, with scenic vistas and less crowded hikes like the Waihe’e Ridge Trail. If you’re interested in learning more about Maui and Hawaiian history and culture, the Bailey House Museum is also close by and holds a large collection of photographs and Hawaiian artifacts that range from traditional stone tools to Duke Kahanamoku’s surfboard. (Bailey House is also a great place to score some unique gifts that are actually made in Maui.) Tip: Tamara served as the director of the museum, so a nice chat with her before a visit is time well spent!

For windsurfing and kite surfing enthusiasts, Kanaha and Kite Beach are ten minutes away.

An incredible value for your travel dollar when you consider what resort lodging costs – and the unique value added experience and authenticity that comes alongside is invaluable.

TROPICAL PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
Iao Valley Cottage was perfect for our first-time visit to Maui. The cottage, gazebo, lanai and landscaping are exactly as described online and more!! Tamara and John are wonderful hosts. We felt very fortunate to have found this tropical paradise. The cottage is centrally located for exploring all parts of the island. Thank you for sharing your property with us!

Wonderful room, tall ceiling, super clean, great hosts, for us a perfect breakfast of yoghurt, fruit, sweet roll and coffee, and so close to the Iao Valley State Park for a hike, central for Hana, Haleakala, or South to Kihei etc.

HEAVENLY PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This was actually our first time ever to a B&B and I doubt we will ever find a more perfect one. The room and grounds are immaculate. We stayed in the Orchid room for 6 nights and we enjoyed the very comfortable king bed and the elegant clawfoot tub. Looking out the door or sitting out in our private covered lanai was breathtakingly beautiful with lush greenery like a garden of Eden. Lots of rain the week we came, so the "raging" creek was fun to watch as it changed day to day. Tamara was a wonderful host. Every day, promptly at 7am, there was a fresh fruit plate and assorted muffins or homemade cookies waiting for us, along with home-grown coffee. What a treat! Thanks for everything!

LOVELY HOSTS, LODGING AND GROUNDS

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a working vacation and during our trip we had the pleasure to stay at the Iao valley inn, Tamara and Bob are gracious hosts. We stayed in the Palms room and loved how it was decorated and the privacy it offered. The grounds are gorgeous with the river running through and the beautifully tended gardens, it felt like staying in a park. We also enjoyed the wonderful breakfast that was served daily and especially the fresh fruit. Will stay here again when we return to Maui! Thank you Tamara and Bob for making us feel so welcomed in your home. Sincerely, Melody & Craig

PERFECT GETAWAY IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a quick 3 night stay here before heading over to Lahaina for the rest of our trip. I wish we had been able to stay longer, but the room was booked for the other days. The inn and grounds are really beautiful. I didn't realize the stream/waterfall would provide such a view, in addition to the distant ocean, mountains, all the great plants, and even a rainbow one day. It is so serene and perfect for those who want to get away from the crowds. We are the kind of travelers who plan to see as much as possible, and we loved that the location of the inn was close to the airport and was easier for us to make the sunrise at the crater, the long trip to hana, iao valley, and the helicopter tour we did on that side of the island.

Our room was great, clean and inviting, plenty of space, comfortable with the windows open and fan on. The microwave and mini fridge were nice to have. I really have no complaints. The inn was absolutely perfect, especially compared with our stay at Lahaina Shores.

Bob and Tamara are the sweetest people, you will love them. They were even nice enough to hang on to the breakfast we missed by heading out so early, so we still got to enjoy the fresh fruit later. And they had a great recommendation for a pizza place that would deliver on a rainy night we decided to stay in.

PEACEFUL VALLEY

  • 5 of 5
A very special B & B with a wonderful continental breakfast. The room was beautifully decorated with hand picked art and unique furnishings. We loved the outdoor space with table and bed, a very relaxing place to hang out and enjoy the clouds drifting over the mountains. We were graced with a full rainbow on our last morning there.
It is a good location for accessing places.
Our hosts were the best they were there to answer our questions and very willing to share their special place.
