Cozy, light-filled cottage, walking distance to Makawao town and a 15 minute drive from beaches. My upcountry cottage is surrounded by lush gardens, with fruit trees and hibiscus in a private front yard, and on the slopes of Haleakala. This sweet cottage is comfortable and has everything you need for a unique Maui stay!

The space
My Makawao cottage is about 600 sq feet and has many windows, allowing lots of light and a spacious feeling, while maintaining privacy with plants all around.

The living area has comfortable seating, a small dining table for 4, and views to the garden with bamboo palms, red hibiscus, orange and papaya trees...

There are 2 small bedrooms, each with a very comfortable memory foam queen bed with super soft bed linens.

The kitchen area has plenty of storage, a full size refrigerator, an electric stove with oven and microwave and toaster/convection oven. It is fully stocked with coffee, tea, condiments and high quality pots, pans and knives, a Vitamix blender for smoothies...

The bathroom has a shower over tub and soft towels. We provide beach towels, beach chairs and a boogie board as well.

This home is EcoFriendly, with solar hot water. We use earth and human-friendly cleaning products, and provide shampoo, conditioner and soaps that are safe for the environment, have no artificial fragrances and are all natural. We use cotton sheets, towels, and napkins. We provide filtered drinking water and reusable water bottles so you do NOT need to buy bottled water. We recycle as much as possible.

We live in a beautiful part of the world, aware of how all our actions directly impact the earth and ocean, so do our part to add to the health and beauty of this island.

The house can accommodate four people max, with 2 queen beds and one bathroom. No pullout couch or additional guests. It works well for one couple, or a couple of friends...

Guests have access to the entire 600 sq ft cottage, which has a bright, open feel. There is a covered seating area and a lovely private yard as well, with comfortable chairs to enjoy a morning coffee or end the day with a glass of wine...
You also have access to the washer and dryer.

There is off-street parking for up to two cars. Please park in the driveway.

Other things to note:

This home has solar hot water, with ceiling fans in living and bedrooms, no need for air conditioning or heat, and I use all natural cleaning products, making this a wonderful choice to have as small an environmental impact as possible.

Where you’ll be

Makawao, Hawaii, United States

Lucia’s home and rental cottage is located in Makawao, Hawaii, United States.
I am 2 blocks from Makawao town, a charming small town with art galleries, cafes, restaurants, a general store/natural foods deli, clothing boutiques, and gifts shops.

I am just a 15 minute drive to the beauty of Baldwin beach, Paia town, and the convenience of Costco and the airport, and about 30-40 minutes to the South side beaches/restaurants of Kihei and Wailea. The cottage is about 45-60 minutes from the attractions of Lahaina and Kapalua, including great snorkeling beaches, restaurants, etc. We are about 45-60 minutes from the top of Haleakala, the mountain that is named "house of the rising sun", where both sunrise and sunsets are beyond magical.

More information
My home and rental cottage is at 1,500 feet above sea level, part-way up the mountain of Haleakala. It is about 5-10 degrees cooler here than sea level, making for very comfortable year round temperatures. It can be cool and rainy in winter months, but there's almost always sun and warmth somewhere on the island! Be sure to bring some warm layers in the winter months.

We are away from all of the crowded tourist areas, but still close to all the beauty you can imagine on the gorgeous island of Maui.

This neighborhood is generally quiet, but it is a residential area with children and dogs close by, etc...

I live and work on Maui and Molokai, Hawaii. I enjoy hosting guests in my vacation rental, and also am an artist, creating hand-thrown pottery. I do Reiki healing work with intuitive guidance as well.

There are some of my hand-thrown mugs and bowls for you to use during your stay!

I love to travel, especially to visit friends and family on the mainland and often stay in vacation rentals myself. I want my own vacation rental to be as comfortable and beautiful as the places I like to stay!
