I've been coming to Maui for 32 years. I was initially drawn to the wind sports, including windsurfing and now kite boarding, but there are so many more reasons I keep coming back!

Dated but Cozy and Central to everything
The house in general was well located - central to everything. It was spacious, had beautiful views and equipped with everything one would need. We rated it 3-star only because it needed a good cleaning, there was no mention of additional units on the first floor with this unit up on the second floor and in general our good neighbors were loud at times.
The furniture was well worn and some items need replacing - ice maker not working, microwave missing the glass turn table and cushions could use some minor stitching repair and cleaning.
Further, our neighbors though very friendly, we’re pretty loud. From the immediate apartment below, the house on the same property and from across the road!
Regardless, we did enjoy our stay as it was near everything we planned to do.
Great place to stay in Makawao
This is a great rental. It has beautiful views and cool mountain air keeps this place nice and comfortable in the evening. The yard is large and the shrubs fill the air with amazing scents. Mark is a great host and was very accommodating to our needs. I would definitely recommend this place if you’re looking to stay in the area.
So nice having you here at Pookela Paradise Justin! Glad the wind and waves cooperated for your visit. Hope to have you back sometime soon...
The way to stay in Maui
We could not be more pleased with this home! The location is so perfect for enjoying the whole island. It was so nice to go adventuring and come back to the cool weather in upcountry at the end of the day. You are away from the hustle & bustle of the resorts and can really experience the local lifestyle here. Whenever we told someone we were staying in Makawao they would be surprised and say “Wow! You guys must know what you’re doing, that’s the way to visit Maui”. They are right! This was our 2nd time to the island and are more in love with it now than we ever were! Mark is a great host and he really does have a slice of paradise here. Highly recommend (except when we want to come back) to anyone looking for an amazing time in Maui. This is the place.
Such a pleasure having you and your family here at Pookela Paradise. It seems like the kids loved playing in the large yard as well :) Hope to have you back sometime soon!
Gorgeous home, and the view??!! To die for!!!
Our only complaint about Pookela Paradise 2, was that our trip was too short! As former Upcountry Maui residents, this truly felt like "coming home." The house is absolutely beautiful there are stunning views in every direction! The owner, Mark, is truly filled with Aloha, and treated us like Ohana (family) We will DEFINITELY be back!! Mahalo Mark!! -The Londin Family
So nice having you and your extended ohana here at Pookela Paradise!
Would love to have you back anytime. So good to hear that it felt like home to you.
Big Mahalo back at you!
A fragrant and calm get-a-way
Po'okela Paradise was a lovely place to escape to. The fragrant, blooming jasmine flowers in the yard filled the air and wafted through the open windows to create a wonderful island ambiance. The country sounds charmed us and the quietness of the evenings settled our hearts. We feel refreshed and renewed by the island and by the accommodations of this lovely island home.
Thanks so much for choosing Pookela Paradise for your island vacation Kelly! I'm so happy you enjoyed upcountry Maui for your stay. It truly is worlds apart from the usual touristy spots on Maui while still being centrally located for all the island activities.
Nice and quiet
We enjoyed and had great relax time. View from the lanai is really beautiful and house is very nice. We recommend this place if you are planing to go to up country.
So good having you and your family here Ayako! Thank you for choosing Pookela Paradise and we hope to have you back soon!
