Welcome to Makawao...
A bustling Upcountry town rich in history dating back to Maui's first paniolos (or cowboys).
These days Makawao is the perfect place to find a unique blend of upscale boutiques, mom and pop restaurants and back to the earth natural stores, with an eclectic blend of local folk to match.
Surrounded by rolling pastureland, towering eucalyptus trees and breathtaking bicoastal views, Makawao is the perfect central location to explore both the North Shore beaches, the densely populated South Shore tourist areas or to simply take a day trip to Hana or enjoy the sunrise up Mount Haleakala.

Interaction with Guests
We live on property however we like to allow guests as much privacy as they would like. We love to meet new guests whenever possible and are available to assist guests at any time but we will not disturb guests as we are very popular with honeymooners and so don't like to interfere with their privacy.
Peace and tranquility. Mixture of miles of open rolling pastureland and towering eucalyptus trees. Abundance of wildlife- deer, bats, owls and birds. Just minutes from the best hiking and mountain biking trails on the island through several forest reserves.
Car is necessary.
This is a very lovely place that provides a serene, relaxing experience. Visiting goats was a lot of fun, and stargazing at night, while laying down on the hammock, was special (we also saw a shooting star). I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away from the crowd. One downside is that it takes about 30 minutes to get out to the main road/Paia.
Mahalo for the review Sanghee!
We're actually located just 3 miles to the main highway (Haleakala Hwy) that connects Upcountry to the rest of the island, both up to Haleakala and down to Kahului/Kihei etc and just a few minutes to Makawao town itself.
We're also 8 miles (20 minutes) to Paia and the North shore beaches- so no need to go to all the way to Paia to access the main highway :)
Thanks again for staying with us!
We had a great experience and absolutely loved our stay! We only wished that we could have stayed longer! The cottage was just as described. Shavon gave great directions that made the place easy to find. She responded to messages quickly and even gave us some tips of things to do in the area.
This charming 2nd floor studio apartment is a delightful place to stay, in a beautiful, quiet up-country setting, accessible to towns and Haleakala National Park. The apartment was sparkling clean, modern, and high quality, with a comfortable queen bed and everything we needed to cook for ourselves, including a high-end gas stove and large refrigerator. The covered deck is huge, with an outstanding view, a hammock and lounge chair, a big barbecue, and dining table w/seating for two. We also noticed that two portable food coolers, a beach umbrella, and beach towels were provided! Our host, Shavon, was always quickly responsive and helpful. I highly recommend this accommodation for one or two people who seek privacy, like animals, and want to experience rural, interior Maui. We could not have found a nicer place to stay and are grateful to Shavon for making it available through Airbnb. Mahalo!
We had a very pleasant experience during this stay and we would book it again. It was well-equipped, clean, quiet and with great views and was convenient to our travel in the Maui upcountry.
Shavon was an extremely gracious and awesome host. She has thought of everything. I am sure she went out of here way to provide coffee for my husband because I was worried about him "waking" up after our first night. She left a wonderful snack package as well. The cottage was wonderful and very very comfortable.
The goats and kitty were so sweet. Nana was adorable
We really enjoyed our stay here, the place was just as described and the views were fantastic. Unique and quiet location. Visits with Nana and cat, and Spaceship and Astronaut the dwarf goats were an added treat!
Such a peaceful, cozy place! The perfect spot to get away, our stay was wonderful and I'd go back in a heartbeat. The cottage was clean and inviting, with a very comfortable mattress, and well supplied with anything we could need.
