The space

Welcome to this tastefully designed Japanese modern home in the Upcountry of Maui. Located at 3,000 ft. on the western slope of Haleakala. My home offers a serene environment with spectacular views of the north and southwest shorelines, the West Maui mountains, and beautiful valley below. This is a perfect location to plan your day trips all over the island and such a peaceful, relaxing place to come home after your activities.
The house is fully furnished with 2 bedrooms each with a queen sized bed, gourmet kitchen, TV, Bose stereo, wireless internet, rain shower, washer and drier, outdoor dining area - all the comforts of home.

Guest access

Not only will the entire home be at your disposal but you'll be able to wander the grounds to admire the citrus, plum, and avocado orchards as well as dragon fruit, bananas, coffee trees, fresh herbs, and a project of reintroducing native Hawaiian plants. You are welcome to use whatever is in season and ripe for your enjoyment.

Interaction with guests

I live in the Main House on the same property and will be happy to offer any advice you need while staying at Halekalani Cottage. My dog, Kula, is always eager to meet new guests and will give you all the attention you'd like.

The neighborhood

Kula is mostly an agricultural district growing much of the produce sold on Maui. The elevation makes for much more pleasant evenings than the warmer coast regions. Also in contrast to the busy tourist areas, our neighborhood runs at a much slower pace with less congestion and noise.

Other things to note

Our neighborhood is very quiet and rural. Please respect this during your stay. Become a "local" and simply blend into the peaceful surroundings. BBMP

My wife and I stayed at Jeff's house for 10 days. Beautiful location, beautiful home, quiet, cool crisp air at night, all necessary amenities. Great kitchen, washer, dryer, very clean and modern guest house, comfortable beds. In the evening we would sit on the back deck with the view of central Maui including the south and north coast. On a clear night you are standing under a dome of stars. Jeff was a great host. The last day he allowed us to stay past check out time, since his last guests were not coming until the following day. Since our flight was not until that evening, this allowed us to go to the beach one more time, return, shower, and prepare for our long trip back home. This was greatly appreciated. Of course last but not least I have to say a word about Jeff's sweet and beautiful dog Kula. After returning home from our long days of adventure, she would greet us, usually while we were already sitting on the back deck.

Jeff's cottage was perfect for our trip to Maui. He was accommodating and provided us with plenty of privacy. Highlights about the house and accommodations include the well equipped kitchen, back patio, bedrooms and fans, living room, laundry, and beach gear, just to name a few. The only reason I fear giving Jeff a stellar review is that it may not be available the next time we visit Maui. Cheers!

Jeffs place is a unique Maui destination that I feel most who visit don't get to see. Take a break from Wailea and Kannapali and stay on the mountain for a few days and you will not be disappointed. Unparalleled views of the island, beautiful sunsets and one of the best showers on Airbnb is what makes his place standout. Don't miss out on your next trip to Maui!

This home is well stocked and nicely decorated. The shower is amazing and the beds are comfortable. It's only minutes from Haleakala National Park, so it'd be great if you plan on doing some hiking there. Upcountry Maui can get chilly, but it's a beautiful and beautiful and quiet area. The views from the home are lovely and Jeff and Kula make great hosts! We'd definitely stay here again.

Jeff's upcountry house is very beautiful. Clean, modern, comfortable beds, great shower. Perfect view of both side of the island. Location is very quite, secluded but same time just 20 minutes from the big city. It is a good central location without the tourist crowd. We loved the French bakery ( La Provence) and Kula Bistro. Just couple minutes drive from home. Love the garden with lemon, lime and oranges. Jeff's dog Kula was so cute and friendly. Our teen loved to pet her. We definitely want to come back for a longer vacation, 1 week wasn't enough. Thanks Jeff sharing your lovely house.

Our family really enjoyed our stay at Jeff's guesthouse. It was convenient location for starting the Road to Hana, driving to Haleakala summit, short drive to Kihei and whale watching cruise that left from Maalaea near the Maui Ocean Center and aquarium. Our kids, ages 4 and 6, enjoyed the green space, citrus trees, playing with Kula the dog and the large shower in the bathroom.

After selling my Veterinary practice in Southern California, I moved to Maui in 2005. I still enjoy occasional relief work at the Maui Humane Society doing surgery for the spay and neuter programs.
As a clarinetist, I am active in chamber ensembles and local classical music groups as well as theater orchestra. Hosting chamber music concerts at my home and providing an Upcountry venue for wonderful musical soirees is a great pleasure.
Over the years, I have developed a farm on my land and tend to citrus trees, avocados, dragon fruit, coffee, bananas, various vegetables and herbs. I also have endeavored to reintroduce native Hawaiian plants to the gulch on my property's border.
Maui has so much to offer - windsurfing, biking, hiking - I enjoy it all.
Cooking and entertaining are a big part of life here among friends as well.
I enjoy traveling especially to music festivals and large metropolitan areas.
As an AirBNB host, I enjoy meeting new people from around the world and offering what I can to enhance their visit.
