We flew in from the mainland and the Octagon Studio was our first stop. What a way to begin our honeymoon...perfect! Upcountry Maui is very beautiful, lush and full of flowers!! It is cooler at night because of the elevation and as we hit a unusually cool spell we could not open the doors and windows and enjoy the open flow. Can imagine that must be amazing. We enjoyed the hottub instead and it was so relaxing! It is a small cottage but has everything you need and is as beautiful as in the pictures. VERY private!! Even if the main unit is occupied you will not feel crowded and you are tucked in your own little private corner.
It is situated perfectly if you would like to explore Upcountry, Haleakala and the road to Hana. We had a enjoyed a perfect massage and the hosts are genuinely nice and caring but give you ample space and privacy. We had dinner at the Steakhouse in Makawao, very good!
Thank you for making our start so beautiful and perfect!
