Excellent home, outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely pleased with our stay here. The days were warm and the nights cool, with excellent views of Kahalui and the water from the front, and Haleakala in the back. It was also very convenient to Makawao town, especially the awesome bakery there! The home had every convenience you could want and the overall accomodations were great. It was also nice to have such easy access to Haleakala National Park and the Road to Hana. We would definitely stay here again!

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.

Great Location Wonderful Views

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed here for 10 days in July. We have family living in Haiku, and the living room and dining area were both big enough that 6 of us plus a toddler were very comfortable hanging out together. There were a few minor issues that Mark was able to address almost immediately for us. I have only two suggestions to improve the experience. One is to install some kind of shades that can be used on the front corner windows in the late afternoon so the sun is not shining directly on our faces as we sit on the couch or at the table. The second is to replace the worn out beach gear. I would definitely recommend this rental to my friends.

So far, the best time I ever had... great vacation.. great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

I can start saying that this is by far the best vacation I had so far, Maui it's magnificent.. (and I'm from Florida, I thought i was living in paradise, lol) the place it's in a very convenient place if you're planing on exploring Maui, it's 30 to 40 minutes from every single important place. lahaina, route to hana, north side, south side, hakaleala volcano, beaches... etc. you're close to everything. the place it's very well decorated, it's a mixes neighborhood, from fancy houses to old houses and everything in between, stunning view, many amenities, music, TV, movies... kitchen it's well equip. we visited every single corner of the island and this house was the perfect base for us to come back, relax and recharge. I have to thank the host for being so professional.

wonderful

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was exactly as described in the presentation. A beautiful location with a nice view. The equipment is above average. The preparation of our stay was perfect. We can recommend this apartment to all who are looking for a peaceful holiday with good at night temperatures with very good comfort and short distances to all attractions of Maui.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I'd recommend this place for a couples getaway OR for the entire family & extended family. The house had everything we needed as a home base for our many adventures around the island. Makawao town is very cool with a a couple smal grocery stores and several nice restaurants. As other reviewers have said just 15 minutes to Paia Town for beaches (including Baldwin State Beach) and more shopping and restaurants and only 25 minutes to the airport. Also, a GREAT location for hitting the road to Hana or visit Mount Haleakalā for a sunrise or sunset (we did the sunset). And, if you want to visit the more touristy areas of Kihei or Lahaina, they are both less than an hour drive! Again, a lovely home with all the amenities your family needs to have a great vacation! Thank you owner Mark!
