The bungalow is a 200 square foot self-contained cabin, with a shower, and a queen size memory foam bed. The kitchenette has a frig and microwave.
The deck has a nice view of the pacific ocean. A good place to relax after a day of hiking. The neighborhood is pretty quiet, punctuated by occasional crowing rooster or barking dog
We are walking distance from downtown Makawao, with a number of interesting shops and restaurants. Makawao is about 20 minutes from the airport, on the side of the Haleakala. It is a good place to get a head start for the Haleakala Crater or a trip to Hana.
We are in a rural neighborhood which many people seem to prefer over living in the heavily touristed areas. A major advantage is that our weather is more temperate because of our elevation, and air conditioning is never required Driving to the beaches of Kihei takes about 40 minutes from here.
Wi-Fi is available in the unit, as well as a coin operated washer and a free dryer. I live next door, and hopefully I can provide anything that you're missing.
Staying at the bungalow was a great experience I was able to go to the top of the mountain and do the road to hana and have a quiet comfortable place to relax and sleep in the best way to spend my time in maui
It was a sweet place, and Karl was a good guy. I'm kind of a fussy traveler, and it was a comfortable place to stay and a good value for the money. I appreciated that it was quiet, had nice vegetation around it, and was close to, but not in the center of Makawao. Flowers and a fresh pineapple were a nice touch.
I was glad Karl was there to lead me to the place; I spent about 30 minutes looking for it and asking neighbors where it was. It's actually to the left of and behind the numbered house in front, and then around to the right once you get back there.
We had a really great time on Maui. Karl is really helpful and friendly. The bungalow is really pleasant and as advertised. It is clean, not too cool or too warm. Everythings works perfectly. The wifi is fast. We highly recommend staying there.
We stayed in Karl's bungalow for 5days and loved every minute of it. Karl was very welcoming and a great host, he let us borrow his bikes for a couple of days as we were using the bus service and walking and supplied us with some fresh fruit.
Karl respected our privacy and only popped round to make sure we were happy and had all we needed.
Would recommend this to all.
This adorable studio was just what we wanted...a little cozy hideaway that's just off the main street...just minutes from great restaurant and bakery. More importantly, it was just a hop away from our family gathering in Pukalani and great location for starting out to Haleakala. Despite the occasional ulu dropping from the nearby tree and a tiny shower...I truly enjoyed this unit and would definitely recommend going back.
Karl's Bungalow is the perfect getaway. You are right near the town of Makawao, which has an amazing health food shop Rodeo, for all your food options. The Bungalow is nicely decorated, just right for a couple. Karl was a great host, he had contact with us the whole time and made sure we were comfortable. We will definitely stay here again next time we are in Maui.
Karl was a friendly host and let us enter the bungalow hours before the check in hour and all was ready upon our arrival. The place is small but has everything needed, we only missed a sink in the bathroom and a better microwave. The location is good, near the start of Road to Hana and the road to Haleakala National Park. Good place to stay in Maui for the price. Recommended.
Karl was a friendly, gracious host, and his little backyard cabin was a perfect fit for us.
