About Claudia Ledesma
Claudia, Kevin and Nohealani are the members of our happy family. We absolutely love sharing our little paradise we have created here on our 4,3 acres in Haiku. We have built our homes, have landscaped the grounds and maintain it all ourselves to this day. We continue to add to the beauty, as well as functionality of the land with orchards, vegetable gardens and a palm nursery, all whilst keeping the privacy intact. We love living off of our land and so do our guests. We love to be active, play in the ocean when our work schedule allows us, but we also enjoy the calm and serenity of our property.
Why Claudia Ledesma chose Haiku-Pauwela
Away from it all, complete privacy, but so centrally located, that you are close to all of the attractions Maui has to offer. It embraces you as a local resident and invites you to live the real Maui life!
What makes this House unique
The energy of this beautiful land fulfills you the moment you step foot on it. That is how it began for me in 1995 and continues to do so for my family still and the many wonderful guests we welcome.

Escape back in time
I lived in Hawaii from 1975 til 1978 and never missed a day being astounded by the beauty of it all. For 34 years I have steadfastly refused to return lest I would have my memories destroyed by the overwhelming commercialization and crowding that have occurred since I left.
Having remarried ten years ago, I finally relented to my new wife's implorings to visit, but I would not be a part of the Kaanapali/Makena madness. So I searched the net and found Hale Mauka Makai after much time spent looking for what I remembered about the Hawaiian paradise I once knew.
The fear I had of disappointment when we arrived vanished when we arrived on the grounds, a surprisingly short drive from the airport.
This was exactly the Hawaii I remembered! Wide open acreage, cooing doves, rampant with blooming flowers everywhere and a drop dead gorgeous house and grounds with absolute utter privacy.
looking down to the ocean on one side and at Haleakala on the other. Trees laden with a variety of tropical fruits are begging to be picked and the pool is pristine.
Claudia, Kevin, and little Nohealani will meet you when you unpack and then, unless you ask, you see no one and no other dwelling for the rest of your stay. There is among the owner's family that exceedingly rare quality that makes you feel like you've known them before and would love to know them forever.
I've read travel reviews more than I care to count over the years in search of our travel destinations, but I have never written one. Hale Mauka Makai and the Ledesma family changed that. Take it from me--- I've lived the classic Hawaiian paradise years ago, and I'm here to tell it is still alive and well if you know where to look.
Look no farther

Sanctuary on Maui
My husband and I looked at several houses on Maui but Hale Mauka Makai was the only one that truly caught our eye. For 11 days it was our own private paradise on Maui. We knew we wanted to stay someplace on north Maui, away from the resort towns and this house is perfectly located. The property and pool are amazing; we often spent whole days there not wanting to leave! We had fresh grapefruit, starfruit and passionfruit every morning. The kitchen was very well equipped, use the Nespresso and the Vitamix! The bed was super comfy and we loved sleeping with the windows open to the breezes. The house is extreemly well cared for and you can tell that Claudia and Kevin want everyone who comes here to enjoy it to the fullest. The towns of Pa'ia and Haiku are very close and have great restaurants and grocery stores. The beach in Pa'ia was great - don't miss the sea turtles that come up on shore every evening before sunset. Claudia gave us great tips on day trips, restaurants and attractions. But we are most grateful for her assistance in planning our 25th anniversary vow renewal on the property. She is a gem and we will never forget her kindness. You will be forever happy and grateful that you chose Hale Mauka Makai for your Maui escape.
So honored and thankful to have been able to make the renewal of your vows so very special! Mahalo!
An Amazing home- we LOVED our stay
This is a great place to be. We stayed for a week with our two kids, and loved picking fruit, swimming in the pool, relaxing on the porch and making a great cup of coffee in the morning while we read on the couch. The home has great attention to detail and provides for most anything you would need. It is spacious, and we liked that each room had their own bathroom. You are a short drive to Paia- as well as Haiku and Makawao, so its location is very versatile. You are just minutes from great breakfast spots, 10-15 minutes to swimming beaches (even closer to Ho'olipa beach park), on the doorstep to the road to Hana, and aan ideal starting point to head up to Kula or Haleakala. We loved it! Claudia was a pleasure to deal with for the booking and other details. I wish I was still there! We will most certainly be back!
Everything we had hoped for!
What an amazing place to celebrate our 20 year anniversary! We were so lucky to spend week at this private paradise in Maui. We can't say enough wonderful things about the house. From the views, to the trade winds, to your own private pool. Even the roosters crowing in the morning was welcomed. Claudia, the owner was such a pleasure to work with from the very beginning till our departure. Communicates well during the planning and even gives you a tour of the property and gardens when you arrive. Don't hesistste to book this property. You won't find anything like it!
Perfect Upcountry Vacation Home
This beautiful, private, and relaxing vacation home was just perfect. The house was just as described and exceeded our expectations. Views of the ocean and mountains were stunning. Pool provided a great end of the day activity for my family.
Can't wait to return!
Been there...done that...and will do it again!
We have stayed multiple times at this location. Every time we are not disappointed. The home is wonderfully decorated, and the property stunning. The owners welcoming and kind. The location is perfect for us, so close to Haiku and Paia and Hookipa and Baldwin beach. Just perfect! Would not hesitate to stay again and we have already booked our next stay!.
And already looking forward to welcome you back!
We are located just minutes away from the world famous windsurfing and surfing beach 'Hookipa' and the remaining uncrowded north shore beaches. Right up the road is a collection of wonderful restaurants, a great local supermarket and state of the art fitness and wellness facility. Paia town, 4 miles away, offers quaint little boutiques and shops as well as an array of restaurants with cuisine from all over the world. Other Activities: Snorkeling, yoga, wellness, fitness, fine dining, kite surfing Golf: Maui offers three of the ten most beautiful golf courses in the world. But not only those three, but practically all courses on Maui are worth visiting. The closest being 15 minutes form our home, the furthest an hour scenic drive away.
