|Minimum Stay||3 - 5 nights|
Tranquil and private country setting in beautiful Kula in Upcountry Maui. Property has great ocean and mountain views and a solar heated Endless Lap Pool for lounging and exercising against the current. Don't stay where the tourists and crowds are when you can be in this very private home only 20-25 minutes from Maui's beaches with swimming, windsurfing and kiting. Go to the
beach during the day and relax and watch the sunset while you BBQ at night. The climate is warm in the day and cool in the evening (2,000 foot elevation) on the slopes of Mount Haleakala (House of the Sun) .
If you want to go to restaurants/shops, the historic towns of Makawao and Paia are just down the road. Upcountry is fantastic for hiking in Haleakala Crater, mountain biking, riding zip lines, and horseback riding. Come discover the Maui that only the 'akamai' (smart) people know.
Our home is 2,000 sq. ft. with an additional 600 sq. ft. of decks/lanai's - great indoor/outdoor living. It is 4Br/3 Ba and includes a wood fireplace, and living/family/dining rooms. The fourth (4th) bedroom is a bonus room. There is a large yard and the property is surrounded by pastureland.
We live nearby so if there is anything that you might need we can be there very quickly. We invite you to come and enjoy our home. Aloha and hope to see you soon!!
Excellent mountain biking and hiking within minutes of the property.
Hi my name is GINGER, and even with my small dog brain, I know that Upcountry is the place to be. My owner's family has lived on Maui since the 1840's and they figured out ages ago that Kula is 'God's Country'. Get away from the hustle and bustle and relax at this beautiful home in cool Upcountry. I give it a solid 'two paws up !!' Hope to see you soon.
When we decided to visit Maui, we did the typical research and found lots of cookie-cutter condos along the shore. While we enjoy our beach time, we prefer having more space to ourselves and to be out of the tourist traffic. This home in Kula was the perfect solution! The location is off the beaten path - be prepared to drive a bit each day for your beach and tourist activities and you'll be rewarded knowing that you have a peaceful getaway to welcome you home. The front lanai is the perfect place for morning coffee while listening to the animals awaken around you (and even see the splashes of whales breaching off shore). In the late afternoon, swap that coffee for a beer and watch the sun splash down behind the sea. The home's layout is terrific with multiple indoor and outdoor living areas and two bedroom wings that would make sharing the home with two families very practical. A well-equipped kitchen is nestled between the dining and living rooms, so family and friends can visit without the cook being left out. Keep in mind that this is a country home in a tropical environment. If you plan to apply the 'white glove test' or can't stand the sight of a bug or two, this might not be for you. If you like to to go with the flow, enjoy life at a quieter pace and see how life can be above the fray in Hawaii - you'll love this Kula home. (other practical notes: pool heats well with the solar heater, the house is neat and nicely furnished but is not pristine, plenty of bed and bath linens, accessories were as expected in the kitchen, tv's in several rooms, good internet wi-fi service, washer/dryer, beach gear to borrow).
My daughter, 3 teenagers & I stayed for 7 days here. It was not hard to find with a GPS.the road to the property is very windy with many turns & speed bumps. Property is attractive with a lived in look. The boys used the pool once during the evening. There are goats, cows, and chickens in the pasture next door. They moo, baaa, and crow quite a bit. Did not bother us, we just did the same right back at them! Lol! We did have a mouse in the house with us and killed several large roaches, but we heard bugs is a big problem on the island. Roaches are everywhere, no problem. House was stocked pretty good with everything needed to cook but would add a 2qt pan. We explored the whole island, enjoyed the beaches over at wailea, pain, and lahainia. Went to makawao to Komados bakery....yum! Did the trip to Hana on tour bus. Went snorkeling to molokini and swam with sea turtles. Food land in pukalani is very expensive. Kahului has a walmart (not super store) and a costco. Would rent this house again!
We needed a place that could accommodate all of us...a 1,2,3,and 8 year old, grand parents and parents..
So hard for the little ones to eat out every night and they really needed a place where they could run and be typical babies...What is cute and entertaining at home is often stressful going out. This Kula home was perfect for us. We could cook meals in at night and had our Maui family also come over for a BBQ or spaghetti. So relaxing and beautiful. Kula has this soft breeze that just takes you to another place. The house really felt like home. Every one was relaxed and happy here. Twin beds could be updated or maybe memory foamed?? Just loved this place !!!! Our three old grand daughter told us we should throw away our homes and buy this one LOL...Maui No KA OI!!!
Peaceful and relaxing, this property elevated our Maui getaway to a new level of vacation
comfort. The house has been well taken care of and is laid out perfectly to accommodate
its guests with a sense of being at home. The large front lanai provides an incredible
bi-coastal view, along with an ideal spot for sunset-watching and outdoor dining. Star-gazing doesn't get too much better from the back lanai and pool deck. The owners are
very easy to deal with and, though we have never met them face to face, it was if good
friends had invited us to stay. A trip to the top of Haleakala crater is less than an hour's drive away. The lavender fields are only minutes away, as well as a market and tasty local restaurants. Neighboring Makawao has the Casanova for an excellent lunch or dinner, not to mention a kickback walk around the little town center. If you find yourself missing the beaches or the coastal hub-bub, a quick drive back down the quiet Kula Highway will get you there in no time, but each time you return and pull into the long driveway you're welcomed back to serenity in the country. There were five of us in our party and we all consider this charming and pleasant gem our Maui home, worth arranging one's travels plans to fit its rental availability. We'll be back!
I rented this house with my parents and my husband for a Maui vacation. We were extremely happy with the cleanliness of the house, the quality of furnishings, and the overall ambience. It didn't feel like a vacation rental at all; in fact, it felt more like a well cared for, well loved home (that was exceptionally clean). We loved the quiet evenings watching the sunsets and the nice days spent hiking on all the nearby trails. The pool is great too. I highly recommend this house!
This was an amazing home! This is our third trip to Maui and would never stay anywhere but Upcountry. We enjoyed the relaxing lanai with the rocking chairs. The house was open and the air was fresh. We enjoyed being surrounded by all the birds, cows, chickens and horses. Close enough to enjoy yet far enough away to not have to smell the usual country smell of animals. We enjoyed the recommendations of places to eat and enjoy. The best was being able to go to the beach and enjoy the beach towns but knowing we had a private little secluded local spot to retreat to was wonderful.
Excellent hiking and mountain biking within minutes of the property on the slopes of Mount Haleakala.
The Kula tennis courts (4) are within 7 minutes of the property and the Pukalani Country Club is within 12 minutes of the property.
Maui's north shore beaches are within 20-25 minutes with their swimming, windsurfing & kiting.
