We welcome you to our upcountry retreat. Away from the city in the upcountry Rain Forest. This is a full 2 bedroom 2 bath home on 5.5 acres land. The home is a beautiful vintage style with lots of wood interior. We have a Fire Place in the master bed room, Hot Tub on the deck, with a built in BBQ area. There is a Full Kitchen separate Dining area seats 6. We keep the place very clean with nice Hawaiian style furniture, Art and amenities! Look over the photos. Feel free to email your questions. We would be happy to welcome you to our home on the hill. Leave your work at home and be ready to relax.
Whats Special About our retreat: The home is located up above Makawao on a small winding county road. The property has jurassic size trees and lush rain forest plants, an open grass pasture, lovely privet deck with clean Jacuzzi and BBQ. It’s very quiet at night and there are no street lights so the stars are clear and bright. The property is on 5.5 acres so you will feel comfortable and secluded in your rain forest getaway. Driving to the home, you will pass one of the best ZIP LINE activates on the Island. Be sure to stop in and consider giving it a try. You'll ride over the lush Piiholo forest and there are natural waterfalls and 5 swimming ponds below— where locals have enjoyed a cool dip for years. Makawao has some of the best food on Maui and has grown into a high quality art and boutique town. .
More special attractions : Just a short drive and you’re in the hip surfing town, Paia. From there you make a right turn and you’re on your way to Hana home of the infamous 7 Pools. After a long day of sightseeing or surfing you will enjoy a Jacuzzi and then relax and watch a movie or snuggle up by the wood fire place in the master bedroom! I truly feel Maui is the best vacation island for your Hawaii experience.
I just love arts and crafts. My rental is a work of art, I love creating a space and keeping it in top shape. I take pride in the quality of our beautiful upcountry getaway and I know you will be happy with how clean and well maintained we keep the property. My family wants you to remember your stay with us and feel good about recommending us to your friends and family for years to come. Feel free to drop me a line. I'll be glad to answer all your questions. We aim to please and make your stay with us a time to cherish!
Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2003
We bought this home for my family. We fixed it up and were raising Alpaca's on the land for years. A few years later we bought a classic 1953 old plantation home in downtown Makawao. We converted the home into a place where our family and friends could stay. We enjoy staying there on the weekends when no one is making use of it. When up there, It’s so beautiful I have a hard time returning to our in-town home Monday morning after a relaxing weekend.
We arrived at the house on a stormy, rainy night so it was a little difficult to locate but, once we found it, we could not have asked for more privacy and quiet. The fragrance of the forest was wonderful; it was so relaxing laying in the hot tub surrounded by that wonderful smell!
I see on the description that there is satellite TV but, when we tried it, it said it was "locked". It only mattered the first two very rainy days when we wanted to stay in and unwind... after that we didn't miss it as we were busy seeing all the sights and driving all the back roads from this very central location. :-) Mahalo and we hope to return!
This home is wonderful and very well maintained. If you are looking for a place "away" from it all this is the place for you. We love staying upcountry as it is much quieter and cooler in the evenings. Lisa and Brian were very accommodating and have the place filled with about anything you could need for your stay. The hot tub on the back deck was a bonus as well as the grill. Our only suggestion would be to add a couple of lounge chairs for those days when you do not want to go to the beach but want to sit outside and soak up some "rays"! (Although a towel on the deck seemed to work too!) We spent 2 wonderful weeks on Maui and wish it could have been longer. We were able to share our love of upcountry with our parents and took them to the Maui Winery, Haleakala at sunrise, The Road to Hana, Paia and the North Shore. Pack a lunch and go exploring:) If you are looking for good fish you must hit the Paia fish market- do not let the lines scare you....it is well worth the wait.
Thanks Brian and Lisa for sharing your home. We can't wait to come back......

We were meeting a couple from Australia and we both wanted a restful, peaceful private getaway to just relax and visit. We found this property was central to all we wanted to do and did not feel at all like a touristy condo or hotel. The location is idyllic, the home is spacious and offers great privacy and the amenities were great. Lisa was a fantastic help and attende to all our concerns.
This home is 3.5 miles up piiholo road above the quaint town of Makawao. It may not be a fit for everyone, but if your looking for quiet seclusion this is the place. Home was spotlessly clean and well maintained.
We loved staying in upcountry Maui. The house was very homey. Loved having the large deck with the grill and hot tub. We enjoyed playing croquet in the large yard. We would recommend the Makawao Bakery, The Makawao Steak House and Polli's. Polli's had the best Mango margaritas. Lisa and Brian thank you so much for getting a generator when we lost electricity . I would recommend anyone who would like to stay upcountry to stay here.

We loved staying at this spacious property that's off the beaten beachy path in Maui. Winding roads with gorgeous views & greenery lead up to this house that would be perfect for a family vacation. My fiance and I stayed for three days, and it was spacious, well-maintained, peaceful, and comfortable while deep seated in nature. It has more space and beds than you really need as a couple, but we booked it based on the amazing reviews and the fact that it was in the area that we wanted to be in. After such a great experience with Lisa and the house, we hope that someday we will return with more of a clan! We especially loved having a fireplace in the bedroom - such a treat. And the location put us near a lot of the things we wanted to see. Highly recommend.
