Our Caretakers

Our caretakers of this special property are Ray and Barbara Bane. After working and playing in Alaska for 37 years, they retired to Maui and now enjoy The Star Lookout as their home.


Perched at the 2900' elevation level on the southwestern side of Haleakala, on Thompson Road off Highway 37. A stone's throw away from Grandma's Coffee House. 



Temperatures during the day range between 70 to 80 degrees. Night time temperatures in the winter can dip to the mid-'50s, so bring a sweater for star gazing! The air is dryer and more comfortable than at sea level.


History of The Star Lookout
Lisa Starr developed this special property in the early '70s and raised her son, Kualono, high on the slopes of Haleakala. The caretakers' home was originally an office building of the Puunene Dairy, located near the town of Kahului. The house itself is over 100 years old.

In 1978 Lisa and a friend designed and built the guest cottage in its current setting. Lisa and her extended family of 17 have enjoyed countless Thanksgivings together at The Star Lookout.

Janice and Steve Tower have owned The Star Lookout since 2000 and have retained that "Old Maui" spirit upon which it was founded.
