Rare & Magical on Maui: A Bamboo Palace with ocean views, organic gardens - private, cool & quiet.

Off the beaten path, this luxurious 2 Bed/3Bath Bamboo Sanctuary at 3,200 ft elevation in remote, eucalyptus-scented Olinda, made “Green Building” history as the first fully-permitted, Structural Bamboo construction on Maui.

This extraordinary Balinese-inspired home (or retreat center) was built in stages from 2004 to 2007 from 3 matching, pre-fabricated kits each handcrafted like fine furniture in Vietnam by Hawaii’s Bamboo Living Homes, a pioneer in structural bamboo design for Western, code-compliant construction.

Upcountry Maui’s clear, crisp air flows through this open stretch of land that runs a quarter-mile, bordered by a 200 ft deep conservation-zoned ravine and Piiholo Rd. Expansive design of the home with its dramatic roof line, vaulted ceilings and graceful arches, all surrounded by extra-wide covered lanais. The ceiling of the spacious 30 ft diameter, yurt-like, 12-sided Grand Room soars 15 ft up to a skylight at the center. The two intimate, 16 ft diameter, 8-sided bdrms connect via large, enclosed breezeways, each of which is its own special use area, perfect for entertaining. The layout has a place for an additional 3rd matching bedroom kit that can be easily ordered and shipped from Vietnam.

The exterior siding is split bamboo coated by Cetol for low maintenance. The same honey tones of the outside are brought inside by the use of cork flooring, exposed bamboo structural framing, and woven bamboo ceiling and wall coverings. Monkeypod countertops, koa cabinets and high-end appliances in the kitchen. Cast iron wood stove. House is surrounded by 1200 sqft of covered lanai, 633 sqft enclosed workshop. 6-person hot tub sits over the ravine. Plenty of storage.
