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.

ABOUT OUR PROPERTY:
All of our buildings are ecologically built to code 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.
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 and links for rental car companies 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.
