Guestbook comments from the manager

Scott, Sara and Chrissy,

On behalf of the whole Sanders family, Jan and I want to convey our warm gratitude for opening your fabulous home for "Sanders Birthday Week" and especially my Mom's 70th birthday. It was a spectacular vacation and you've earned a lifetime of thanks from all of us. Mom, in particular, is in love with your house. She could not stop talking about the workmanship and the details. That stuff is a little above my head. I was generally happy to watch sunset from the deck with a nice glass of wine. For me, this was the best family vacation ever and I suspect that for some of the crew it may have been their best vacation ever.

The week itself couldn’t have been better. It didn't rain until Sunday night, so we had perfect weather. The folks at Trilogy said we'd lucked into the best snorkeling day at Molokini all winter. We did a Luau in Lahaina and swam in the Seven Pools. We played tennis, basketball and, being from Ohio, threw lots of horseshoes. I got in two great rides, an out and back on the back road to Hana and a partial climb of Haleakala. Upcountry is some of the best bicycling I've seen. Great climbs, fast, winding descents and best of all, since most of my riding at home is on chip seal roads, smooth pavement.

Eric and Daisy were gracious and great help when we had questions.

I have to admit I wasn't that taken with Maui last year when we stayed at the Fairmont, but I loved Kula. I can see why you choose to call it home.

Most beautiful home in Maui!

  • 5 of 5

We were absolutely amazed at the beauty, quality and serenity we found at the Kula estate. The photos really do not is THAT gorgeous! This property is hands down the most picturesque we've ever stayed at. We frequently travel to Hawaii, but this home and its amenities made our most recent stay the best ever. The views are magical and the home has so much to offer! The pool, hot tub, tennis court and volleyball court give you plenty to do outside. It has been designed with the perfect blend of island style and modern comfort. The art is stunning, and the house was stocked with everything you might find at a hotel. It was very clean and well maintained. I wish I had known about this home when we planned our wedding! It would be the perfect setting.

You are only a short drive to some of the most beautiful beaches and quaint towns that Maui has to offer. If you are planning to go with a larger group, this home has plenty of space and privacy as it is 3 floors with bedrooms on each. I highly recommend this property!

The most amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

This place is like none other that I have stayed at in all my travels. Luxurious , sophisticated, tasteful. The earthy surroundings and natural finishes complemented each other beautifully. The estate is amazing with clay tennis courts, large pool , golf cart to move around the 17 acres to gather fruits from the trees. We went with two families and we didnt want to leave . The views are unparalled. We also stayed at another of their properties and it was stunning too. Will definitely come back as often as we can! Simply amazing and if you get the chance make this your trip of a lifetime.

This property is beautiful, wonderfully designed and large enough to accommodate bigger groups. My sister had her wedding here in February 2010. The families stayed in the main house and the friends stayed in the guest house just down the driveway. There is plenty of space for people to congregate or keep their privacy depending on what they want to do.

There was a breath-taking wine cellar downstairs. I took advantage of the sauna in the mini-gym area. I loved it. It was very clean, seemed virtually unused. The entire house seemed untouched. It was in really great condition. We were all very impressed with the house and adjoining property. It seemed like everyday someone was discovering a new amenity. We realized the living rooms walls collapse to create a virtual patio out of the entire living room. It was absolutely brilliant. The property overlooks two shorelines and a mountain top. It's awe-inspiring.

The amenities abound. I simply didn't have enough time to take advantage of everything: the tennis courts, the volleyball, the chess board. There is a gorgeous pool with a thatched hut covering a mattress on the deck for maximum mid-day relaxation. So make a list of what you want to do while you're there and stay vigilant. There is simply too much relaxing to do!

Some of the smaller touches I appreciated were the L'Occitane products. I love, love, love L'Occitane. Also, the towels and bedding were all impeccably clean. In fact, the linens smelled so good I wanted to make a point to ask what detergent they used. It smelled amazing.

This was truly a perfect site for our purposes and everyone in our group really enjoyed the house. This was a real find.

Our property sits at the base of Upcountry Kula, at an elevation of 1,800 feet which gives you the weather similar to the beach but the views and setting that are not attainable anywhere else on the island. We are surrounded by eco-farming, goat cheese farms and wineries.

Other Activities: Clay Tennis Court, Sand Volleyball Court, Basketball Half Court, Trampoline, Life Size Chest Board, Gym, Pool and Jacuzzi

There is a zip-line close to the property, beautiful hiking, best biking in the world, great restaurants, horseback riding, yoga, pilates and tons of unique shopping.

Golf: The island is filled with amazing golf courses.
