About this listing
Beautifully designed custom home in Upcountry Kula with panoramic views of the coasts, West Maui mountains, and neighbor islands. The perfect location for peaceful relaxation while you enjoy your stay in Maui and everything it has to offer.
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.
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.
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

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.
