Pinnacle, an Upcountry Maui vacation escape!
A vacation in
Upcountry Maui is an
opportunity to escape from the hustle and bustle, and experience
a different side of Maui. Set just
a few hundred feet above sea level, Pinnacle sits outside the rain
on the edge of a hill, at the entrance to the quiet,
rural town of Haiku. Just one mile down the road is the town
center, with a variety of amenities and services.
Haiku town center offers a variety of small restaurants and
cafes. From the lunch time fish taco stand, to breakfast, lunch
or dinner at Colleens, there is both variety, as well as quantity:
For upscale dining, Mama's Fish House
and Haliimaile General Store (two
of Maui's best restaurants) are within ten minutes by car.
North Shore Cafe
Spice and Rice (Indian)
If you are looking for more options, Paia or Makawao are only ten
minutes by car from Pinnacle.
Haiku town center has two small grocery stores - Haiku Grocery, and
Fukushima's. Although small in size, they seem to have almost
everything you might want. For major grocery shopping, Safeway
and Costco are located in Kahului (approx. 20 minutes from the house).
The Studio Maui (Maui's best yoga studio) is just one mile up the road
from Pinnacle. They offer a variety of classes, for beginners
through experts. No membership is required.

town center has a post office. (Note: Pinnacle
also provides high speed wireless internet) in both the Guest Cottage
and the Main House.
There's really no shortage! The Haiku area is close to world
surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, hiking, and biking.
Be sure to visit Donnie at Go Cycling Maui. They offer the
ultimate cycling tour experience, treating you like a professional
cyclist (sort of like a fantasy camp for cyclists). They are also
a full service bike shop with high end rentals.
Haleakala Bike Company is also located in Haiku, and offer a very
different service. They drive to the Haleakala park gate and
provide a bike for you to cyle down at your own pace.
For a quick hike, be sure to visit Twin Falls (about 10-15 minutes by
car from Pinnacle) and hike up the stream to the waterfalls.
They're a bit chilly, but there's nothing like swimming under a

minute drive from Pinnacle.
