About the property

Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2) With Wonderful North Shore/Ocean Views..



-This self contained detached cottage consists of a single fully equipped upstairs studio and a single downstairs studio, ideally situated on several acres of land just a few minutes outside of Makawao town.

Welcome to Makawao...

A bustling Upcountry town rich in history dating back to Maui's first paniolos (or cowboys).

These days Makawao is the perfect place to find a unique blend of upscale boutiques, mom and pop restaurants and back to the earth natural stores, with an eclectic blend of local folk to match.

Surrounded by rolling pastureland, towering eucalyptus trees and breathtaking bicoastal views, Makawao is the perfect central location to explore both the North Shore beaches, the densely populated South Shore tourist areas or to simply take a day trip to Hana or enjoy the sunrise up Mount Haleakala.

Just minutes outside of Makawao town is where you will find our accommodations featuring:

-Fabulous ocean/north shore views across rolling pastureland.

-Hawaiian themed four poster bed

-Full kitchen with stainless steel fridge/freezer and ice maker.

-Brand new digital coffee maker with complimentary coffee/tea.

-Flat screen wall mounted television with huge array of music and satellite television channels.

-Brand new Weber barbeque for a lazy evening under the stars.

-Ocean view picnic/seating area.

-Beach towels, cooler and beach chairs for a busy day of exploring.

-Chaise lounge chairs for some afternoon sunbathing or reading.

-Large comfortable hammock- perfect for nature watching.

-iPod docking station

-Wifi is also included.

-Separate entrance and parking.

-Complimentary gift basket featuring local Maui goodies on arrival.

With Axis deer commonly seen on our driveway and native endangered Hawaiian bats seen hunting among the eucalyptus trees at dusk, our accommodations are the perfect country getaway for the bird watcher or nature lover.

Convenient to town but quiet and private for those that enjoy their own space. Located on several acres of land.

Three night minimum stay preferred.

Why The Owner chose Maui

The perfect location- drier than Haiku, warmer than Kula. Located in the country away from the main road yet just minutes from Makawao town.

What makes this studio unique

Sweeping Ocean/North Shore Views framed by hundred foot beautifully scented eucalyptus trees.

Endangered bats and local axis deer frequent the property as well as a large variety of birds, butterflies and colorful flowers.

Our property is very environmentally friendly- we are powered by solar energy, our friendly cats control the mice, our ducks control the bugs and our little Nigerian Dwarf goats are our resident lawn mowers!

We give a complimentary locally produced snack basket containing coffee/tea, chocolates and a variety of snacks on arrival...

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was such a lovely place to come home to after my conference. I'm so fortunate to have had the opportunity to witness the transit of Venus from this beautiful island.

Great upland location for quiet days and hiking

  • 5 of 5

Away from the heat of the coast and the bustle of tourism, a great central, upland, location.

The studio was great with everything we needed for self-catering ( I love to cook), and more.

We will recommend to all our friends.

A day hiking across the volcano, starting at the Sliding Sands Trail, was one of the best I have done anywhere in the world.

What a wonderful space... Many mahalos to Shavon & ohana for sharing your space! I am a local resident and there was some confusion with dates and renting out my own space, so when my sister came to visit, her and i ended up needed to find a place to stay! We found this spot and were very grateful to have a home-away-from-home! It was great.

Thank you again and i will surely recommend your spot to others!!

Quiet, peaceful, tranquil, private

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay. The cottage was great - anything you might want or need was available. The welcome gifts were awesome! The owners were kind and friendly. The view from the cottage was breathtaking. It was a quiet, peaceful retreat. We went on a beautiful nature walk in the nearby woods. We strolled through and enjoyed the quaint town of Makawao. The ocean was an easy car ride away. We highly recommend the property to anyone who enjoys nature and peace and quiet.
