1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom
Jeff is a retired dentist - now he specializes in metaphysical counselling, and is expanding his hypnosis practice into Subconscious Training. (Previously he used these skills in working with phobic patients in dentistry - but these skills have much wider applications and he's having fun expanding them). Sharyn is an actress, writer, speech therapist, permaculturalist & interior decorator. At the moment, she's enjoying theatre improv and working on a one woman monologue show, which she'll perform in a few months. We have one young son, Kai Nalu, aged 17. And also an older son, Adrian, who lives in England with his lovely German wife, Antje and their 2 totally cute kids. We're too young to have grandchildren! aaaggghh!!! But what a treat!
Sharyn purchased this Cottage in 1992
Why Sharyn chose Huelo
Huelo is off the beaten path, wild and wonderful. Who could resist? We have a constant trade wind, so we never 'bake' like the west side ... and here the landscape is lush, so it's easy to do our organic gardening. We wanted a Maui dream escape, but also wanted some conveniences, and these we have aplenty!
What makes this Cottage unique
Privacy and relaxation are things that are priceless. So many people find they rediscover those things, when they stay with us. Romance too, of course - that comes naturally when you've re-created that space for just for yourselves. This is the natural part of Maui - not 'manicured' or 'manufactured' to be part of a Hollywood image. Here, you discover the 'real' Maui - exotic ... waterfalls ... bamboo forests ... soaring ocean cliffs ... nesting seabirds ... wild ocean ... what we dream of, when we say 'Hawaii'. Here, you'll feel 'remote', but still enjoy the conveniences of having access to 3 small towns (Pa'ia, Makawao and Haiku) for easy grocery pickup, P.O., delightful boutiques & fun restaurants.

Best find ever!
Rainbow Cottage was a wonderful unexpected pleasure. Imagine waking up at 3:30 in the morning (still on Michigan time!) and watching a meteor shower through the skylights above your bed. Who gets to do that?
We grabbed the comforter off the bed and went down to cuddle in the hammock and enjoy the meteors. Our hammock swayed in the breeze from the trade winds and we could even hear the surf crashing on the cliffs below. As the sky began to lighten, we made a pot of coffee from the beans Sharyn had so generously provided and watched the sunrise from the hot tub. All that was just one morning of our stay at this magical place.
From its location (near the beginning of the Road to Hana) to its privacy, everything about this cottage was awesome. We spent hours at the pool on two of our days, and never saw another guest. We were honored by a visit at the pool by Sharyn and Jeff (our hosts), as we enjoyed visiting with them. They are great hosts and made us feel at home.
I highly recommend staying at the Rainbow Honeymoon Lookout (of course we saw a rainbow from our balcony!) or any of the other cottages that are on this site. A complete pleasure. We stayed four nights, and regretted not staying longer.
We had an amazing time!!
Everything about the property was amazing. You have to realize it is not a hotel. It is out away from the city. If you can get passed that then you will love the property and location.
It is on the way to the road to Hanna. The jacuzzi really came in handy after our hikes and adventures. The host went out of her way to make our stay was comfortable. Our daughter loved the backyard and the short hike to the cliff where there are amazing views.
We thoroughly enjoyed hosting Saad & Unsa and their little one, Habiba (hope I got the spelling right!) It's always fun to be able to let kids run and explore (feeding the chickens is always a favorite, and seeing the cows in the pasture both sides of the fence on the ocean cliff path are always a big hit). So glad you guys enjoyed your stay with us - come back for longer next time! (And yes, that hot tub under the stars feels awfully good after a day at the beach!)
The rainbow cottage was private and clean and comfortable. It has a cozy, homey vibe. Will definitely stay here again! I met Sharyn and Jess, they’re both beautiful souls and I can’t wait to see them again :)
"Aloha" Amy & Maka - so wonderful to have you as our special guests. I KNEW you'd love Rainbow!
Absolutely awesome accommodations
Well first you have a lovely and very private space to call your own. Combine that with a very warm and friendly host (Sharon) and our stay could not have been better. The Rainbow Lookout met all our needs and had everything we needed in the kitchen, plenty of towels for bath and beach, beach chairs, ice chest, and extra scuba equipment. We could walk down the private road to catch the sunrise; we drank our coffee In the hottub and we swam in the very nice lagoon style pool every single day.
When we return to Maui we will definitely Come back. We loved the home and surrounding areas and enjoyed the natural setting as well. If you don’t like nature and want to be pampered by hotel staff then don’t come here. If you don’t mind seeing a gecko scramble across the rocks, then you’ll be ok here. If you want to see what it’s like to actually live like a Maui denizen then this is the place for you.
Sharon could not have been more responsive and accommodating. The fruit and bread and eggs and wine got us off to a great start!
Thanks for everything! We had an absolute blast.
Thanks to Jeff and Sharyn for sharing this beautiful property away from it all. It was peaceful and lovely for part of our honeymoon. Sharyn and Jeff are very nice and the house has pretty much everything you need. Thanks again! Annie & Mark
Bless you, Annie and Mark! You were such fun guests. I knew you’d be delightful, right from the moment you rolled into the driveway looking ever so slightly confused! So glad you found wonderful blue skies and sunshine!!! Do come back again for a special anniversary!
The property was beyond amazing. The home was privet form all the other ones. Y
I’d give this place 10 stars if I could. My boyfriend and I stayed here for our Babymoon and we couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate and relax before our little one arrives. Sharyn was incrediable, she was helpful with suggestions on restaurants and things to do around the island. The property is perfect if you want pirvecy and something quiet. We never wanted to leave. The drive might seems like a hassle or out of the way but it’s really not bad, and it’s totally worth it. We highly recommend this place and we can’t wait to come back and stay again.
We loved having Tyrone & Paris as our special 'babymoon' guests! (Hint hint ... we have crib & high chairs, at no charge!)
