About tom and Vicki
Aloha! We welcome you to the Bamboo Valley Inn. As your hosts, we hope you enjoy the serenity of our property as much as we have over the past 17 years. Vicki is a special education teacher and teacher of the blind/visually impaired. Tom is a hotel consultant. We reside in a separate home on the property approximately 100 yards away, hidden behind the bamboo. We are available to answer any of your questions and fulfill any of your requests, but if you are coming here to seek privacy, we will be a phone call away if we are needed.
tom and Vicki purchased this Apartment in 1994
Why tom and Vicki chose Haiku-Pauwela
We first saw this property in 1994 and immediately fell in love with the location. Being near all the necessary conveniences, but hidden in a quiet tropical valley, surrounded by bamboo forests, running stream, and towering eucalyptus trees is ideal. Our 1,000 foot elevation brings us cool nights, resulting in great sleeping weather. We have lived here for 18 years and continue to appreciate the beauty each day.
What makes this Apartment unique
One of our favorite activities is taking long walks on beautiful Baldwin Beach, located just 10 minutes away. This beach offers shallow protected coves, great for young children as well as open ocean for those who love the waves.

Truly a get away from commercial Maui experience. Accommodations were top notch with a few surprises: window unit air conditioning units which eventually cool the home, sharing a nice deck and BBQ with another unit, weak internet and cell phone access (be sure to set GPS before leaving home). Nice touches were the tray of coffee, tea, snacks and instant oatmeal, and the use of a cooler, beach chairs, umbrella and boogie boards. Minor irritations were house geckos and whirlpool tub not working. We'd stay again if back in Maui.
Lovely and quiet
A beautiful up country setting. We really enjoyed our experience.
We loved staying at the BVI! The amenities were wonderful, clean, and comfortable. The hosts were very friendly. We loved the porch, view and peaceful property. The kitchen equipment was well stocked to make full meals and we appreciated the beach chairs, boogie boards, and cooler available to borrow. Paia, Haiku, and Makawao are very close and wonderful towns, each with fantastic restaurants, small grocery/general stores, and shopping. We traveled to all other major regions around the island during our stay and were very happy to be at the BVI. We would definitely stay here again.
Peaceful, beautiful spot.
Huge apartment with fabulous rainforest views. Very comfortable and so quiet. Highly recommend this place.
Central location, great property
If all you want to do is hang out at the beach and sip cocktails, this may not be the best place for you. But if you want to explore all the wonderful things Maui has to offer, from the crater to the Road to Hana to the northern beaches to watch the surfers, Bamboo Valley is a great place to do it from. Up Island has its own unique charm, away from the hustle and bustle. The property is lush and lovely, the accommodations superb. We loved our time there.
Easy, Clean, Beautiful Jungle Retreat
If you want to get close to the jungle, this is the place for you. Large kitchen and living area, balconies, laundry, outdoor shower, large closet and bedrooms, massive bathroom. This place is well taken care of and in the perfect jungle location. They also provide every detail you may need that is impossible to pack: beach chairs, coolers. This is not the spot for someone looking to be super close to the beach, although an easy drive away. We enjoyed an alternative and beautiful view of Maui that this place offers. Only downside: the long driveway down can be a bit scary at night. :)
thank you for hosting us! we're excited to stay again soon.
