Overview

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. 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, with a built in BBQ area. There is a Full Kitchen separate Dining area seats 6. We keep the place very clean with nice Hawaiian style furniture, Art and amenities! Look over the photos. Feel free to email your questions. We would be happy to welcome you to our home on the hill. Leave your work at home and be ready to relax.

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.

About Owner/Manager

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. My family wants you to remember your stay with us and feel good about recommending us to your friends and family for years to come. Feel free to drop me a line. I'll be glad to answer all your questions. We aim to please and make your stay with us a time to cherish!

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2003

Why Owner/Manager chose Makawao

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.

Spacious, gracious, upcountry home

  • 5 of 5
This well situated, very private home has absolutely accurate descriptions. It is very well maintained, well furnished and supplied to accommodate both children and adults. Kitchen is well stocked, home is very clean, basic paper supplies and cleaning products supplied. This ended up being our home for nearly a month and we could not have been more pleased. Lisa and Brian were not only friendly and kind but also incredibly helpful with information specific to the work we had to accomplish during our stay. We found the home's location perfect for exploring the upcountry, the north shore, the road to Hana, all the upcountry towns, and far away from the general resort madness. A very private setting and quiet neighborhood filled with birdsong in the morning. We had brief morning rains which gave way to sunny skies. The lack of AC was no problem at all since nights were cool and the house came with fans if needed. The landscaping is beautiful with artistic night lighting. WiFi was adequate. Many games and DVDs come with the house for your enjoyment. The hot tub looked like new, super clean and was a blessing for very tired muscles. The road is narrow with tight curves yet there are many homes up here and cars regularly going by. Makawao is a short 20 minutes downhill with funky shops, good food, great baked goods, friendly post office, helpful people and an overall spirit of Aloha. The Saturday morning Kulamalu Farmer's Market behind Long's Drugs was a special treat, rewarding shoppers with the best and freshest that the UpCountry has to offer. Mana Foods in Pai'a was a great place to load up on organic food and we enjoyed a few of the good restaurants here, about 45 minutes from the house. The drive up to the house passing horse farms and offering incredible views, often with a rainbow will have you wishing that Maui was just a wee bit closer to the mainland.

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

  • 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!
