Clean, stylish and private newly renovated apartment in upcountry Pukalani. Centrally located only 15 minutes to the airport, Kahului and North Shore beaches. Good base to discover Haleakala, Hana and upcountry Maui but still only a 30 to 45 minute drive to the tourist centers of Kihei and Lahaina.

The Space

The spacious apartment has recently been renovated and features bamboo wood floors and a new queen bed with quality linens. There is also a fold out sofa bed in the living room.

High speed wi-fi internet is included along with a new 40 inch LCD TV with Netflix so there is always a steady supply of movies if you choose to stay in.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all appliances such as a toaster, coffee maker, blender, kettle and microwave as well as all the pots and pans required to put together a meal if you like to cook. You also have an outdoor barbeque if you would like to grill outdoors. There is a huge Foodland supermarket only a couple of minutes up the road to get supplies from.

There is beach equipment included with the apartment for you to use. This includes beach chairs, snorkel gear and fins, boogie boards and a small cooler.

If you prefer eating out there are a bunch of restaurants and bars close by in Pukalani and Makawao. We leave descriptions and directions to all the local restaurants posted in the apartment.

There is a great uncrowded golf course and swimming pool very close by in Pukalani. The golf course and swimming pool are very reasonably priced.

Interaction with Guests

Your hosts live upstairs and are happy to fill you in about all that the island has to offer, we are quiet so you probably won't see or hear much of us except maybe tinkering around in the garden from time to time. The apartment is completely private and secure with your own entrance and parking area on one side of the house.

Getting around

There is a public bus that runs every hour with a stop close by. To enjoy all that Maui has to offer we recommend that you rent a car.

  • This is the perfect spot to stay in Maui! It's up in the mountains so the weather is definitely cooler and very comfortable. The breeze that comes in through the doors during the day just lulls you to a relaxing nap. It's is very quiet because of it's location but centrally located to be close enough to the beach, airport, road to Hana, etc. It has everything with clean bathroom and neat little kitchen. There were 4 of us and we were all comfortable. Jarad was an awesome host, always available when something is needed. He even provided some supplies in the kitchen for cooking. We also used the grill in the yard. Definitely saved us a lot of money by cooking and not eating out at the expensive restaurants all the time. We will definitely stay here again when we go back to Maui.

  • We had a wonderful time at Jarads! The apartment is very clean and quite. The private entrance is perfect so you can come and go as you like without disturbing anybody. Jarad was a great host. He provided us with towels and earplugs (because of the rooster but we didn't use them) and useful information. The kitchen has everything you need, even a mixer and coffeemaker. We were happy that we could cook our own meals on some evenings. The neighborhood is very quite which was great for us because we wanted to get going early and weng to bed early. The location was just perfect because it is so central. About 60min up to Haleakala Summit, 30min to Kihei, about 40min to Lahaina and the perfect starting point for the road to Hana.
    We just loved our stay in Maui and we would definately come back to Jarads appartment if we come again. Thanks again, Jarad!

  • Jarad was a fantastic host! We really enjoyed being in Pukalani since it was removed from the hustle and bustle of the more tourist-y parts of the island. Jarad made us feel welcome and made sure we had everything we needed to make our stay the best! I would highly recommend Jarad's place.

  • Staying at Jarad's place was wonderful. Pukalani is centrally located on the island so it was the perfect landing spot for exploring. Jarad was very kind and the place was very clean. We had fresh towels, soap, bedding, etc... My girlfriend and I were happy to see they had a blender; it allowed us to save a ton of money on drinks because we would make our own (we just stopped at Costco--15 min away--and grabbed mixes for the week). It was also nice to be able to watch Netflix in the evening, after dinner. I highly recommend staying here.

    Only thing to note: If you are a light sleeper, there is a rooster next door that wakes up around 5am. With the window closed I'd sleep right through his cock-a-doodle-dooing, but when we slept with the window open the rooster woke me up. Maybe bring ear plugs.

  • Quiet, private, clean place. Easy access from airport. Decently equipped )lacks laundry facilities). Very handy for driving to Haleakala crater, Paia, road to Hana, Kulu botanical gardens. Get groc before you leave Kahului.
