EXTRAORDINARY, QUAINT, ROMANTIC & PRIVATE 2 ACRE, COUNTRY MAUI COTTAGE

Makawao House Rental Photos and Description

Upcountry 1500 sq. ft, COTTAGE.

Our Hawaiian English Cottage is a beautful and quaint home in Upcountry Makawao, Olinda, Maui. This wonderful cottage is 1500 sqaure feet big and located a few miles above the historic town of Makawao. The area is tranquil encompassing the beauty of nature. The cottage is at a perfect elevation. The climate is temperate with temperature usually in the 80's/70's year round. In the eve's in winter it get's down to 60's/50's which is perfect fireplace weather! This is ideal climate for a relaxing sojourn, a perfect romantic retreat, a serene space for writing, meditation, and artistic endeavors. It also lends itself to a fun family holiday.

The location is up a meandering country road that captures the fragrance of eucalyptus that line the road. Here you will experience the real upcountry Maui away from the bustle of the tourist scene. This quaint and private retreat is only 15 minutes to restaurants, shops, pubs, galleries, yoga and massage spa, and a general store.

The cottage is surrounded by nature and fresh clean air. Serenity and peace will engulf you as you approach the manicured lawns and organic orchard of lemons and plums.

At night the sky fills with an abundance of twinkling stars. Sometimes you might get lucky and see a falling star or moonbow.

The charming living room has wood floors an inviting push button fireplace. There are plenty of windows which offer an airy feel. The living room is decorated with cozy comfort in mind. There is an air of welcoming charm. The essence is a casual feel of relaxation with a touch of elegance.

Truth be known, when folks visit, they do not want to leave. The energy is very positive and relaxing on the soul.

There is a nice dinning room that seats 6.

The country kitchen is lovely, equipped and adequate for cooking with all basic appliances.

Fantastic place to discover the beauty of Maui!

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic way to discover the beauty of Maui....by staying in Upcountry at this unforgettable home. It was away from the tourist hustle and bustle, but close enough to everything and a perfect base camp from which to explore the island. We stayed for two weeks with our 15 month old daughter and will have lifelong memories of our first (but definitely not last) visit to Maui. The gardens, the chickens, the goats, and the chameleons all became part of our daily routine....not to mention the hot tub! An evening fire was the perfect way to end our days. Our hosts left us alone, but provided everything we needed - and then some! If you want to see Maui at your own pace - start here... you wont be disappointed. Thank you Neesa and David for such a beautiful holiday.

Beautiful and romantic home that was very memorable.

  • 5 of 5
The house was beautiful. Everything was perfect. Really quiet place in the upcountry of Maui, with a nice view from every room. It is even better than what the pictures show! We were welcomed us with some fruits, wine and beers. There was fresh hand-made soaps in every bathroom and some extra for gifts. Neesa and her husband were really helpful and always available for us. Thanks to Neesa and David for making our stay so memorable.

A Piece of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5
This upcountry cottage is piece of heaven. It was quiet, super clean and homey, with a big fire place and comfy beds. We loved it. It would be great to have a personal retreat there or a small event. Neesa is a dream host, having left fresh eggs for us and taking care of our every need perfectly. It was hard to leave and we have plans to come back!

We stayed for 3 nights and really enjoyed this property. The drive up to it is a very unique long winding road with beautiful huge trees- well worth it as the house and yard are really outstanding!! The house was very clean and we really enjoyed using the hot tub and the fireplaces. The basketball hoop was great for our kids. It would have been wonderful to have had more time to just stay around the property and enjoy being there but we spent our days out driving the Hana Highway and exploring Paia (which was great to do from this location-we took a little shortcut to the Hana Highway which prevented us from being caught in the traffic one always hears about) The owners was very nice and showed us around. We had complete privacy which was great but knew that if we needed anything the owners lived on the neighbouring property. I would recommend this place and would love to visit again one day if we are lucky enough to travel to Maui in the future.

Perfect for relaxing, quality time, and a Unique Experience on Maui!

  • 5 of 5
We live on Oahu and wanted to go to Maui with my toddler son, husband, and parents visiting from the mainland. Staying at Neesa's place was the perfect place to relax and have quality time with family, and it was truly a wonderful unique experience. The location is lovely at a cool elevation on the slopes of Haleakala on a peaceful secluded farm. The master bedroom, kitchen, and back deck with outdoor eating area all had sweeping views down to the ocean. In the mornings, we enjoyed strolling around the gorgeous farm with our son picking fruit from the trees, feeding grass to the goats, and visiting the chickens. In the evenings, we enjoyed hanging out by the fire place at night and soaking in the hot tub. Neesa was a gracious and friendly host, always responsive, accommodating and available, if we had a question. She left several special treats for us, including stunning flowers with birds of paradise and protea right from the farm, eggs from her healthy happy chickens, and plenty of bars of luxurious, local, hand-made, goat milk soap. We would highly recommend staying at Neesa's!

Exceptional Maui Holiday in this Wonderful Home and Property

  • 5 of 5
At first we were hesitant to book a holiday home for our visiting family in the upcountry Maui area. However, we are SO HAPPY we did and that we chose Maui Ranch! Our family experienced the Maui that upcountry residents live daily. At Maui Ranch you will be greeted by fantastic, caring, knowledgeable hosts. Our welcome gift was fantastic but I do want to spoil the gift surprises! The home is rustically elegant, clean, well equipped, and has a very welcoming vibe. We really like the artwork and fine art photos. The grounds are well kept, very serene, and private. We picked lemons for lemonade and Margaritas. Yummy! The place breaths relaxation. We loved the backyard fire pit and roasting marshmallows with our family. We enjoy cooking and the kitchen was great to get creative with culinary fare. Everyone went out to eat in nearby Makawao, Kula, and Paia, but our best dinners were at this great home. We hiked at the nearby forest and ventured to the Piiholo Zip Line just minutes away. Awesome! We went windsurfing in Paia and discovered Baby Beach in "Sprecks" which was everyone really enjoyed as it was like a swimming pool. The price was really good for home this nice. The nights were a bit chilly and we personally loved this fact. The bedding was warm, fresh, clean and super nice. The sauna was perfect after windsurfing. There were so many little thoughtful details that really made this an exceptional place to stay. Our hosts only vacation rental their home on occasion, so hopefully you can get a booking and experience this authentic Maui style. We HIGHLY recommend Maui Ranch.
