This listing features our beautiful Indian room with views of both the Haleakala volcano (House of the Sun) and the ocean. The Indian room, located on the first floor of the Opua house, has a warm feeling and invites you to travel inside as much as you enjoy the outside. The room is tastefully decorated with offerings from India and Tibet. Since we made those pictures we installed a zen-like looking black bamboo flooring. The Indian room has shared bath room on the same floor and the shower is located on the bottom of the stairs. A spacious closet with top to bottom mirror holds your luggage so you can keep the room meditative.
You are sharing a spacious, beautiful kitchen with the other guests in the house. The Opua house kitchen is well equipped for all of your cooking needs.

*ONLY FITS 2 PEOPLE - thank you

*Please note that our offices are closed during the weekend and our normal business hours are M-F 10am-2pm Hawaiian Standard Time. We are a small family owned retreat and will always respond to your request as soon as we are able. Please do not send requests over the weekend, we will not be able to reply and will have our response time penalized due to this.
We greatly appreciate your understanding. Mahalo.

ABOUT OUR PROPERTY:
All of our buildings are ecologically built and are often adorned with spiritual art and hand-crafted masterpieces from Pacific and Asian countries. All our rooms have ocean views, and we are surrounded by lush jungle, ponds, flower gardens, fruit trees, and a nearby waterfall (reached by a short downhill climb) which flows into natural pools for swimming from which you can gaze upon the breath-taking view of the valley.
Our land is a wonderful place to wander and explore: you can take a short walk passing the chickens, the homes of our bees, countless species of flowers and plants and stop by our temples, where you can rest, relax and meditate. For the adventurer, our ocean trail is a moderately challenging cliff trail and the hike takes about a half an hour to get down to the ocean. You will enjoy the wild beauty and the untouched nature of this piece of rural Maui, which is occasionally visited by dolphins and turtles, and in the wintertime, the whales can be spotted breaching from the rooms. But be sure to prepare with a good pair of hiking shoes, some snacks and feel your feet, the trail can be very slippery after a heavy rain.

Location: We are on the North Shore of Maui's sunrise, just 40 minutes north/east of Kahului airport, and 30 minutes from Paia Town (on the way from the airport), which has lots of great restaurants and boutiques, a large health-food grocery store, internet cafés, bank, ATMs, post office, and lovely public sand beaches for walks or jogs, lounging, picnicking, sun bathing, swimming and surfing. We are in the heart of the island, where you will receive a full of experience of local living and no large hotels and tourism. Nature calls!
Please let us know if there are specific activities or services that you are interested in, and we’ll be happy to get you connected!
If you would like to get married on Maui, Kutira is a licensed wedding officiant by the State of Hawaii.

All of our houses are built to code and we have an official permit by the county of Maui to host guests.

Children: The allowance of children is decided on a case-by-case basis (based on age, space, and location of your vacation rental). You need to have a confirmed approval from our office. If you arrive with a child without our consent, we will not be able to host your stay. Your reservation will be immediately cancelled with no money returned. Generally, we strive to maintain a meditative space and if we are able to do so while hosting your wonderful family, we would love to!

**UPON ARRIVAL**: We will charge you and additional 13.42% tax from the amount you have already paid to AirB&B. (This is the mandatory Hawaiian Transient State Tax of 9.25% and Hawaii State Tax of 4.166%). Our cleaning fee is based on a 5 night stay. If we accept a shorter stay a higher cleaning fee is due as well. Our cleaning fee is likely different during the high-season (December 15th - March 31st) and the summer season (July 1st - August 31st).

Late Arrival: There is an additional $45 charge for late arrivals between 7pm - 10pm and $65 from 10pm to midnight, after midnight $95. We are a small family owned business and have to hire an after hour guest-services person to welcome late night arrivals and show you to your room or cottage. If you have planned to arrive before 6pm, and you come later than one hour after you agreed, we have the right to charge a waiting fee of $30. We request a courtesy call if you arrival time has changed, and in this case we will waive your waiting fee until 7pm. Again, thank you for understanding our situation.

Shopping Service For Late Arrivals: Please contact us in advance with a detailed shopping list and we will have your groceries waiting for you when you arrive. The cost for this service is $30 + 10% of the cost of goods.

We also request upon arrival a credit card imprint for potential overuse charges. In order to use our hiking trails, we need you to sign a release waiver.

Once we have accepted your booking we will send you a detailed informational email that will support your stay with us. Important: Please confirm this email as it will contain driving directions to the property and you will need to verify your arrival time.

We are really looking forward to hosting you at our magical place!

We are EXCITED to announce that as of the 1st of September 2016, after much planning, anticipation and roadblocks to overcome, the badly needed road repair and upgrade has been successfully completed. Mother Nature had definitely taken her toll on our roads! Now with the vast improvements, and thanks to a dedicated road repair crew and the help of local volunteers, the last stretch of the drive to our magical resort is now as smooth and enjoyable as it is beautiful!

We are located in the Valley of the white Owl, the Pueo. We have two old Hawaiian churches. We have a really beautiful guestbook in each room that shares more about the history of this place and the valley we are located in.

It is essential to rent a car. It is the easiest way to navigate and see our small island. Our local bus system is very limited and does not pick up guests with luggage and we are not on their bus route. With our confirmation email we give suggestions where to rent a car and where to stop to shop before you come out to our location.

Car Rental Recommendation: the last 0.5 miles, (0.8 km), are on an unpaved road. The owner drives a small Toyota Prius and the majority of our guests rent compact cars. However, if you are not familiar with back country roads you may be more comfortable renting a Jeep. Regardless of car size, everyone has always arrived safely to our land.

Our office is open Monday-Friday from 10am-2pm (Hawaii standard time). We are unable to respond to inquiries over the weekend but will get back to you first thing Monday morning! BBPH/0003. Our Tax ID is .

This is completely different than the typical Maui tourist experience in a big concrete building. Kutira and Raphael's place is in beautiful grounds, with hiking to a waterfall and the ocean. Yoga every morning, plus other spiritual/somatic workshops. The other guests were friendly and interesting. Plus the decor is a smorgasbord of global spirituality. And it's near everything on the island. Highly recommend.

Respuesta de Kutira & Raphael:
Thank you Jessica for your wonderful review. Yes, all our rooms and cottages have ocean view as we are by the ocean on a cliff. We hope you had time to take the hike down to the ocean and to our waterfall. Looking forward welcoming you back one day,

Ein wundervoller Ort ,abseits von Lärm und Hektik, Ausgestattet mit liebevollen Details. Alles ist bestens organisiert und sauber. Wenn du nach einem Ort suchst der in Harmonie mit Natur und Umwelt ist, dann ist es hier. Raffael ist ein äussert feiner und aufmerksamer Gastgeber, das junge Personal freundlich und fröhlich. Es herrscht eine gute Stimmung in Haus. Bring Moskito Schutz mit! Die Anfahrt kann auch ohne 4Rad Antrieb gemacht werden, so wie in den Beschreibungen erwähnt. Natürlich in eigener Verantwortung. Ich würde sagen, dass die geteerte Strasse ist in schlechterem Zustand ist als die "Dirtroad". Mahalo Ruth

Estuve junto a mi esposa en nuestro paso por Maui en Eco Retreat (5 noches) pero nuestra estadía no fue buena. El alojamiento es demasiado caro para lo que realmente es. Además, al llegar al lugar te dicen que debes pagar los impuestos en efectivo y no te entregan ningún recibo o boleta a cambio. PÉSIMO. La ubicación es también mala, lejos de todo y con muy mala conectividad. Si alguien quisiera ir a Maui a aislarse del mundo (no entiendo por qué alguien querría eso), entonces es recomendable, pero si quieres conocer las playas y lugares de la isla, Eco Retreat no es una buena opción. Aún cuando tuvimos auto luego de dos días sin uno, se pierde demasiado tiempo de traslado para ir a lugares como Hana, Lahaina o Kihei. Por otro lado, de los 6 días que estuvimos sólo vimos a Kutira en dos oportunidades, una sólo de saludo y la otra el día en que nos íbamos. Mientras que Raphael está siempre dando vueltas por la casa inspeccionándolo todo, lo que te quita bastante privacidad. Al elegir la casa, pensamos que se relacionaría con actividades como yoga, reiki y alguna otras de tipo de relajación y espirituales, pero éstas casi no existen. Si quieres hacer yoga, tienes que pagar y al consultarle a Raphael por una sesión de masajes nos dijo que nos cobrarían U$ 150 .. una locura! Definitivamente nos arrepentimos de habernos quedado ahí y no recomendaría a alguien que lo haga,
