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 Maui

Away from it all, 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"My partner and I have rented Claudia's Hale Mauka Makai on Maui for at least the past four years, usually beginning the middle of December for four to six weeks. We often extend our stay if it is available. We first rented the home after viewing it on the internet and we were not disappointed when we arrived. Their are many homes to rent on the island, but Claudia's house has a warm Hawaiian plantation feel. The design of the home is quite unique and the quality of the workmanship and the furnishings throughout the house are extraordinary, and reflect Claudia's loving care.

We particularly appreciate the privacy of the home due to the beautifully landscaped grounds surrounding it as well as our ability to walk outside our door to pick papayas, star fruit, bananas, lemons, limes, and much more. The pool area is also very private and affords a full days sun. Honestly, we seldom go to the beach because we enjoy the privacy we have in sunbathing and swimming in the pool. It also has a panoramic view of Haleakala Volcano where we have gone hiking on numerous occasions. The kitchen is well equipped and we have held dinner parties during our stay.

The home is located just a short distance from popular beaches and island restaurants such as Mama's Fish House and Haliimaile General Store. The casual laid back town of Paia offers wonderful shops, restaurants, one of the best health food stores we have ever shopped, and a gallery of local artists. Haiku and Makawao are close by and the Maui Gym and Maui Studio in Haiku offer a tremendous variety of exercise and dance classes as well as special events and workshops.

Kevin and Claudia are also very accommodating to whatever our needs throughout our stay and keep us well informed about what's happening on the island---especially when "Jaws" 50 feet waves are about to hit so that we can make the drive through the pineapple fields to view it first hand.

There is something for everyone on Maui and each year we experience it as if it were our first time. We are anxiously looking forward to our return to Hale Mauka Makai next month and always feel as though we are visiting our second family when we think of Claudia, Kevin and Nohealani. I couldn't recommend a better vacation home on Maui.

I trust you will have a very memorable island experience with Hale Mauka Makai!"

Escape back in time

  • 5 of 5

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

Your home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property in a private and convenient location. Every detail has been thought out and we were left wanting for nothing. Claudia saw to any need we had and kindly shared the fruit growing on the property. We would happily stay again and recommend it to anyone looking for a comfortable house on the north shore of Maui.

Once again, a FABULOUS visit!

  • 5 of 5

This review is long overdue, and well deserved.

Our visit was from 9/14/14 through 9/23/14. We are repeat clients, and were just as satisfied with this trip, as the first time we came to stay.

I was booking a stay for 2016, and noticed that I had neglected to review our 2014 visit, so hence the late posting.

Where to begin......If you read reviews,(we do) you will find all that you read to be an accurate depiction of the property. It is hard, after multiple stays to find new adjectives to communicate just how wonderful it is to be lucky enough experience this house and property.

Leave your cares and worries behind, breathe and enjoy the fresh air, salt water swimming pool, beautiful views, luxurious accommodations, fruit trees, organic garden, beautiful starry skies at night, lovely beaches, quaint towns, and the abundance of privacy.

Your host, Claudia, is nothing short of magnificent.

We are counting down the days until our next stay in May 2016,

Don't hesitate to book this property. We are a part of a growing list of repeat clients.

My family stayed at Hale Mauka Makai for 10 days and we wished we could have stayed for 100 days. From the time we first emailed Claudia to when Claudia met us at the home to the day we left, we felt completely at ease. Claudia really has a gift for hospitality, and it shows in the pride she takes to make sure her guests want for nothing. The house literally has everything you need for a Maui vacation. Ice coolers? Check. Bodyboards? Check. Beach umbrellas? Check. Snorkling gears! Check. And on and on it goes.

The house. Everything written about the house is true. But no pictures or written words can describe the feeling of serenity and peace you feel when you inhabit it. You soon realize that everyone staying with you in the house is experiencing the same thing you are. And then it hits you how special your vacation really is.

A vacation paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the great fortune of spending our honeymoon at Hale Mauka Makai. For one week, we lived in total luxury. The house itself is beautiful, functional and extremely comfortable. You can tell that each detail was well thought out when the house was being built. You can spend time inside and still feel as if you are in paradise, as from every room in the house, all you have to do is look out the windows or doors and you have a view to die for. We had fresh squeezed orange juice every morning from oranges that were picked on the property. There were mangos and limes and mandarin oranges and vegetables and herbs to pick from the garden. And did I mention the coconuts? My husband is now a huge coconut water drinker, thanks to our Hawaiian vacation. We have rented homes before on vacation and normally by about the second day we are itching for our own bed and pillows. Not here. The bed and pillows were perfect. The pool was beautiful and so pristine, exactly as pictured. My husband loved the barbecue, and we wished we had used it more often during our stay. Claudia and Kevin and their daughter were so warm and welcoming. Honestly, when you stand outside this home, you almost have to pinch yourself that places like this exist. The acres that surround the home are perfectly landscaped; the colors are amazing. This house and surrounding property belong in a magazine! It was the perfect place to come to for vacation and my husband and I are looking forward to going back and bringing our children, who will love it as much as we did.
