MAUI OLINDA FOREST RETREAT W20788716-01

Makawao House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

We welcome you to our upcountry retreat. Away from the city in the upcountry Rain Forest. This is a full 2 bedroom 2 bath home on 5.5 acres land. We have room for your horse in fenced in pasture if you’re traveling to Maui for the rodeo or 4th of July parade. The home is a beautiful vintage style with lots of wood interior. We have a Fire Place in the master bed room, Hot Tub on the deck, full Kitchen with Bar and Dining Room. We keep the place very clean and have provided nice Hawaiian style furniture, Art and amenities! Look over the photos, we have on request. Feel free to email your questions. We would be happy to welcome you to our home on the hill.

Whats Special About our retreat: The home is located up above Makawao on a small winding county road. The property has jurassic size trees and lush rain forest plants, an open grass pasture, lovely privet deck with clean Jacuzzi and BBQ. It’s very quiet at night and there are no street lights so the stars are clear and bright. The property is on 5.5 acres so you will feel comfortable and secluded in your rain forest getaway. Driving to the home, you will pass one of the best ZIP LINE activates on the Island. Be sure to stop in and consider giving it a try. You'll ride over the lush Piiholo forest and there are natural waterfalls and 5 swimming ponds below— where locals have enjoyed a cool dip for years. Makawao has some of the best food on Maui and has grown into a high quality art and boutique town. .

More special attractions : Just a short drive and you’re in the hip surfing town, Paia. From there you make a right turn and you’re on your way to Hana home of the infamous 7 Pools. After a long day of sightseeing or surfing you will enjoy a Jacuzzi and then relax and watch a movie or snuggle up by the wood fire place in the master bedroom! I truly feel Maui is the best vacation island for your Hawaii experience.

I just love arts and crafts. My rental is a work of art, I love creating a space and keeping it in top shape. I take pride in the quality of our beautiful upcountry getaway and I know you will be happy with how clean and well maintained we keep the property.

I'll be glad to answer all your questions. We aim to please and make your stay with us a time tyou'll cherish!

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2003

We bought this home for my family. We fixed it up and were raising Alpaca's on the land for years. A few years later we bought a classic 1953 old plantation home in downtown Makawao. We converted the home into a place where our family and friends could stay. We enjoy staying there on the weekends when no one is making use of it. When up there, It’s so beautiful I have a hard time returning to our in-town home Monday morning after a relaxing weekend.

UPCOUNTRY SEEKER

  • 4 of 5
For persons and families seeking a place away from the resorts and hot beaches, this is a great quiet retreat. Just do your shopping beforehand or slip down to Makawao or Haiku for a restaurant. Since we were use to air conditioning, this older home's unit may be in need of some freon. However, once the windows were opened, the cool upcountry breezes were a relief. With no ceiling fans, and a next door neighbor, we felt uneasy about leaving all the windows open at night, so we left the unit's AC fan running for still nights.

Each morning brings out a wonderful array of songbirds that are unheard of elsewhere. The strong perfume of the eucalyptus trees is just breathtaking and worth the experience. It is a beautiful place to experience the cool, fragrant, upcountry breezes.

We used this retreat to site see the upcountry and visit Haleakala NP. The Maui Spa Retreat is also close by for those wishing a great way to exfoliate while on vacation. The hot tub was perfect and the outdoor grill made cooking easier.

Owner's Response: It sounds like you enjoyed most of your stay:)
We never felt the home needed air conditioning or fans when we lived there. Because of the elevation of the property it is usually cool. The wall monitor you found and thought it needed freon is actually central heat because in the winters it can be quite cold. I will label this for our future guest. Thank you for your honest feedback. Hope you'll be able to return again!

GREAT TIME IN THE FOREST!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for part of my honeymoon on Maui and really enjoyed the change of scenery/pace compared with resorts on the coast. The drive is a bit curvy/winding, but the property is worth the drive. Plenty of space to spread out and a nice big deck. Would've used the deck more if it had not rained so much, but at least the hottub was enjoyable! Short drive to Makawao, be sure to visit the bakery... Best donuts around. Good starting point for a trip up Haleakala or even Hana as you'll be closer and not crowding the same roads as all the people staying on the coast. If you're looking for a more isolated & private stay on Maui, this is a good bet!

Owner's Response: Happy Honeymooning:)
My husband and I have been married for 21 years and we still feel like we are honeymooning when we stay on this property.
I hope you were also able to enjoy the video collection of movies and the fireplace on those rainy days.
I'm glad you found Kamodas bakery in Makawao town it is well known in the Islands for all there baked goodies.
Thank You for taking the time to let other visitors know what you enjoyed Lisa & Brian

BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL, EVERYTHING WE HOPED IT WOULD BE!

  • 5 of 5
If you want a private country getaway this is an ideal choice. Comfortable beds, a great kitchen, beautiful surroundings and a hot tub on the back deck made for a perfect vacation. Lisa had a wonderful gift basket waiting for us too. Yum! We're already planning to come back next year. Thank you, Lisa, for your wonderful space. We loved it!

Owner's Response: Thank You for your time in giving your feed back. I'm happy that you want to make this a home away from home for your next visit to Maui.
We feel the location of Maui Olinda Forest Retreat is MAGICAL. The eucalyptus wood walls with the bamboo floors just enhance the whole experience a warm and cozy cabin feel.
We will look forward to having you stay with us again:)

THE HIGHLIGHT OF OUR TRIP

  • 5 of 5
Staying at this house in makawao was the highlight of our two week vacation to Maui! The house was roomy, the beds were so comfortable and the huge back deck and grill were great for the nights we ate in and relaxed. Makawao is an adorable little row and we were close to ziplining and the road to
Hana. We will definitely be returning! Lisa was a pleasure to rent from - thank you so much for all your help!

A VERY MERRY MAUI CHRISTMAS

  • 5 of 5
This was our second time staying in upcountry Maui and coming back to this home was a sweet homecoming. It is the ideal retreat to escape to after a day of exploring the island. It is a great location that easily connects you to the roads to Hana, Paia, Haiku, Haleakala or toward the beaches of West Maui. The property is in Makawao, a lovely little town filled with surprises to discover. The home is cozy and serene, surrounded by forests. At night you can gaze at the star filled sky and if you get an island breeze blowing through, the whistling of the trees will be your lullaby. Lisa and family are great hosts and there is nothing that has not been thought of to make sure guests have a great stay. It is a true personal retreat and after spending 2 weeks there we felt fully reenergized. I would recommend this home to those that truly want to experience Maui and disconnect from wherever you may be coming from. Everything that the island has to offer is a short drive away, and when you've had enough of exploring the island for the day, you can get away to your forest retreat and get well rested for the next day's adventures. We will surely be back in the near future to once again escape at this wonderful forest retreat. Mahalo Lisa and Family!

MAUI OLINDA FOREST RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Highly recommend this rental unit for anyone traveling to Maui whether for business or vacation. Location takes a few minutes to get too, but is well worth the drive. Your own little secluded paradise. House was very clean and homey and had everything you could need while away from home. Listing description and photos are accurate and property was well taken care of. Owner goes above and beyond to make your stay as comfortable as possible and was very easy to work with. Excellent customer service and will definitely return for any future trips as well as recommend to family and friends.

Owner's Response: I really enjoy making sure that my guests are comfortable. Keeping in mind "What do i like and need when i stay somplace?" Cleanliness is #1 being as i have allergies to dust myself. I treat people the way i want to be treated. Just a little extra care is a sweet perk to put a smile on my guests face.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your honest response.
Hopefully we can take care of you again as a returning guest.
Warmest Lisa
