About the property

Luxury 3BR/2BA House in Great Location! Spectacular Ocean Views!

This new home with panoramic, bi-coastal views is centrally located for all your North Shore and Upcountry activities. For those into water sports such as wind surfing kite boarding and surfing. Consider it your 'command post' where you can wake up in the morning and immediately see where the conditions will be best! You can see the north shore breaks and some of the South Shore ones from this house, and even spot individual kites or windsurfers on the water with binoculars! Once you decide where to go, you are only 12 minutes to Paia Bay, 15 minutes to Ho'okipa, 15 minutes to Sprecklesville, and 15 minutes to Kanaha Beach. You will also remain central to all the Upcountry activities such as hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, road biking, zip lines, and sight seeing in Haleakela National Park. Makawao Town is a tourist attraction in-of-itself. It was once a cowboy town and now has many boutique shops and fine restaurants.

The perfect house with all the amenities: The house has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. It is finished with travertine throughout the bathrooms, bamboo wood floors, and a slate floored laundry room. A gourmet kitchen with top of the line stainless steel appliances will please even the most discriminating chef.

Wonderful upcountry location

  • 5 of 5

Always a pleasure to spend time with family and friends at Pookela Paradise. Perfect location for a cyclist - and away from the tumult of the resort areas. Great to be able to walk into Makawao. Highly recommended. We come back every year.

Beautiful Home, Location, Owner

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing time at Pookela Paradise! We loved having plenty of space, a wonderful kitchen, a responsive owner (even though we had no issues), our own hot tub and grill, and amazing views.

In addition to the house itself, we liked the location. The town is fun to walk around, and central to all sides of Maui. Yes, you will be driving, but we would be doing lots of exploring no matter where we stayed.

We hope to return!

Pookela house review.

  • 5 of 5

Mark the owner was very nice. He took care of an issue we had with the DVD player. Explained a lot about the town of Makawoa and surrounding area. The house was very nice-great views of the valley. The weather was nice, cooler than down by the ocean-great breezes. The only down side is there are no shades on the west side so the sun shines into the house in the afternoon. We would stay again. Thanks Mark

Owner's Response: So nice to have fantastic guests! Based on their feedback, I've installed blinds on the west facing windows of the living room, which is a great idea if wanting to watch the HDTV in the late afternoon.

Paradise experience

  • 4 of 5

Once the owner's mix up when we arrived was resolved, this was a quiet off the busy tourist area retreat with a nice view of the beach. The home is lovely and had everything we needed for our stay.

spectacular views!

Great setting with super large windows to enjoy the awesome views. Full rainbows every day due to the morning showers. Very convenient location and close to Makawao town.

The best location on Maui - in my opinion.

  • 4 of 5

This property is fantastic. It really is a wonderful location. The view was breathtaking. We used it as home base for our many activities! Haleakala Crater, fishing, beaches, Hana road trip. Greg is fantastic too. Always got back to us quickly with questions (I only really had two). We also left something there and he was very helpful getting it back to us. The house has everything you need and don't bring with you. When he says everything is designed for your comfort he is not kidding - towels, chairs, BBQ, coolers, etc. We wish to return to Hawaii and will definitely look to Pookela Paradise again.
