Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Large comfortable room with attached bathroom and shower. The hosts were kind enough to leave some snackie bars and biscuits along with an assortment of teas and coffees which was very welcoming and convenient as we arrived by a late flight. Bed is slightly on the small side but extremely comfortable. The area is perfectly close to visit the lavender farm, paragliding activity and Haleakala crater visits. We met Greg and he suggested a couple of nice places to eat.
    The only drawback is no AC as the room gets quite hot during the day time (small fan provided though). However, nights are really cool requiring a light blanket in this part of upcountry Kula.
    The entrance is through a garage but that did not pose any problems to us.
    If arriving late, as we did, please ask for instructions to arrive and access the place well in advance. Karen did send us the same but we had already boarded our flight by then and had to call her late in the night to clarify the access.
    All in all, a nice stay, thank you.

  • The apartment is in a good position to visit the haleakala national park. Clean with a small bathroom without windows. The entrance is not the best cause you have to cross the garage. Good for one or two days staying.

  • Karen is a wonderful host. A little summary of the best dining was available in the room. Chocolate and cereal bars were given (very useful if you go to Haleakala at sunrise). The room was great. So everything was perfect ! Thank you Karen !

  • We have stayed at Karen's studio for 3 nights while exploring the Upcountry on Maui. From the moment we have contacted Karen about the rental until our departure the communication with the host was seamless. The studio was clean, quaint and very close to the Haleakala crater. The area is very quiet and the views from the studio are magnificent, stretching all the way to the ocean. Karen was very thoughtful and left some essentials (tea, coffee, sugar, creamer, cookies etc.) in case there was something we forgot to bring. Since the studio is located near the Haleakala crater, the dining options are limited, especially if you are arriving late (Karen did provide us with a list of places to eat which was very helpful). The studio is equipped with a fridge, french press, electric water pot, and microwave so getting few essentials on the way might be a good idea (the nearest grocery store is few miles away). We did try Casanova which was good. By far our favorite restaurant was Kula Lodge, with wall to wall windows and spectacular views. Weather permitting, the patio is open for lunch from 11:00 a.m. until 2p.m. with water cascading between gazebos. The food was great and the service fast and friendly.

    We would highly recommend staying at the studio if you are visiting Maui.

  • Practical, spaceful room with fridge, free coffee facilities and a clean bathroom for a really fair price.

    We felt a little bit strange . . . a nice little talk or good advice for our trip would have been nice for us . . . and helps to feel welcome. But maybe Mrs. Isberg was busy this day. We only stayed for one night, so there was no more time to get well known.

    Perfect place to go to the crater for sunrise (we tried, but than had bad luck with our car - started with a over half full tank and was empty far beyond summit, we had to move back without seeing the sunrise. . . so we woke up at 3 a.m. without success :O( - really a pitty!!). So better check your car before going to sunrise ;o) !!

  • Stayed at Karen's place on May 16th for 1 night. She was very friendly and worked with us on our flexing scheduled. This is our 4th time to Maui and we always try to stay at a locals for at least one night. And staying in upcountry is simply wonderful!! Awesome views and cool evenings make staying in this area of Maui a hit!! Karen's place was spacious and clean! Would highly recommend!!

  • It had a large rustic cabin studio in Maui feeling. If your wanting a close beach this is not the place. If your looking to bike, go to Haleokoala, Hana, the lavender farms or the Winery this is a great spot. Karen was very generous with clean towels, snacks and drinks for us. We missed a deck or place to sit outside. But is rained most of the time. Also you have to walk through a office and garage to get to an upstairs studio. But was very clean room and also had a futon. Karen and Greg seemed very nice.

  • Karen was an exceptional host, and we had an awesome time staying at her lovely space. The apartment was spacious and the amenities provided were outstanding.

    While we never had the chance to meet Karen, her communication was great. We'd love to come back next time were on Maui and would highly recommend this place!
