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.
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.
The directions to the house were great, especially since we arrived in the dark (a little tricky to see the school buses though). It was nice to have the lights left on for us so we knew where we were going. The place was very clean and comfortable and we felt right at home. The location was great, close enough to get places easily but at the same time quiet and peaceful in the country setting. We loved spending time with the resident cat Nana and meeting the goats Astronaut and Spaceship. The treats that were left were very yummy, thanks! We would definitely stay again!
The cottage is just as described on the website. It's very well equipped, beautifully located and very quiet. Great location to explore upcountry Maui.
Had a great stay. Place is super quite. If you are trying to get away from it all, this is the place. Stayed in December and it was a tad chilly in the mornings. Plenty of blankets to keep you warm though.
Sharons Unterkunft war exakt so beschrieben - und das war richtig toll! Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt (nicht zuletzt durch die Gesellschaft von Nana, der Haus- und Hof-Katze) und hatten dort alles was wir brauchten.
Hinweis für andere Gäste: Im Upcountry kann es nachts schon mal kühler werden - durchaus angenehm nach einem heißen Tag am Strand. Aber wir waren doch froh, dass wir Pullover dabei hatten. Außerdem ist das Wetter oft etwas regnerisch - das sorgt jedoch für umso schönere Regenbögen :)
Insgesamt eine sehr empfehlenswerte Unterkunft für alle, die ihre Ruhe haben wollen.
We had a great stay at the cottage. All the details were right, the bed was comfy, the kitchen stocked with everything we needed (the sacks were great), the cooler and beach chairs, the hammock etc. It was so nice to have private outside space and watch the stars at night or watch rainbows come and go in the morning. Overall we were very satisfied, thanks for a great stay.
It is a small cottage in the mountains of Maui. We planned to stay for 5 nights but left after 3. We love nature and tranquility as it was described but we also love clean rooms. We felt really uncomfortable. The place didn't meet our expectations. You need at least an hour to the next beach. The next town Makawao is about 10 minutes but it felt like a ghosttown. In our opinion it is not worth the money. We wish the description had been more precise, than we would have choosen a different place from the start.
Many thanks for the review. It was unfortunate we did not get to meet you.
The nearest beach (Paia Bay) is actually located 9 miles from the cottage so we're not quite sure why it took you at least an hour to get there. We are listed under Makawao Town so that guests can get an idea of the location in relation to the closest beach before they make their reservation.
Makawao town is actually a busy town by Maui standards consisting of many shops, restaurants, clothing boutiques and sports facilities. Perhaps for those used to city life "Upcountry Maui" can be very laid back. For those that enjoy bustling, crowded tourist areas we suggest a condo in Kihei or Lahaina to be more appropriate.
We pride ourselves on offering comfortable, clean accommodations and the majority of our guests are in fact return guests or come from recommendations from past guests.
We wish Steffi Und Gediz well in the future.
