Hale Kokomo is a beautiful home on the north shore of Maui built in 1929 featuring a cozy designer bed with organic cotton sheets in a clean, well decorated room. Fully equipped European style kitchen - we take food very seriously. Recently upgraded bathrooms appointed with stone flooring and granite counter tops as well as wood floors in the bedrooms. I love to decorate and my favorite channel is HGTV - so many great ideas. Our renovations have stayed consistent with the old world charm of this home and made it more efficient and user friendly. This home offers all the modern convinces while keeping the charm intact. WiFi for your internet needs so you can stay in touch if you really want to. Parking at your door in our private driveway.
Our neighborhood is rural. There are acres of wide open spaces around us. Green and peaceful -everyone loves it here! Not what’s expected of a resort destination like Maui. Just down the street is Haiku town where you’ll find restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as work-out weight training and yoga centers. The cycle shop in Haiku town offers rentals should you wish to see Maui from that perspective. You can even cycle down the volcano.
Our home is centrally located in close proximity to beaches and the near by towns of Paia, Makawao, Haiku and not so far from Pukalani. The airport is 15 minutes away - (4 traffic lights). Yoga and massage are available in the neighborhood. You will love the experience of living this close to nature and shopping at our local farmers markets for fresh, locally grown organic fruits, vegetables, hand crafts and much more.
We love our island and we’re happy to share all of our favorite spots with you - often only locals know about. We are sure you will love Up Country Maui as well. We stay in a constant mind set of gratitude and celebrate all the gifts this island has to offer. We practice Aloha and give it freely. If you would like to experience an authentic visit to Maui, feel free to contact us. Many blessings, Gary and Marianne Callari
We would like to remind our guests our home is located on the opposite side of the road when you see the mailbox with the house # 2719 plenty of parking once you pull in the driveway. All the mailboxes on our street are on the same side of the road it does not indicate the location of the house.

Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as you would like. We are open to any conversation. We both have jobs outside of hosting guests so there are times we must move on to our work schedule.
We love the openness and privacy of our neighborhood. We also enjoy the fact that when we look out our windows we see green trees and nature. A 6 ft rock wall surrounds our property which offers complete privacy and protection from the road or passerby. We never feel exposed. A short walk around our neighborhood you will see horses cows and goats on the properties around us. A rural setting but conveniently located to so many hikes and waterfalls. Twin falls a very popular swimming pond is 15 away.
Public transportation on Maui is not the fastest way to travel. The bus routes are limited and because the island is spread out you will want your own car to get to all the luscious beauty you will want to experience while you are here.
Other Things to Note
Living on an island in the middle of the pacific presents a freedom and openness that we don't often experience on the mainland. Doors and windows are open fresh air is abundant and we don't feel the need to be closed up inside. We enjoy bringing the outdoors in! Because we have the rock wall surrounding our property some of our windows are happily exposed! The plant life outside the windows also act as a covering in a more natural way. You will be sharing the house with the private room with just Gary and Marianne because the door to the bedroom is an original 1920 style door it doesn't have a lock on it. When your door is closed we respect your privacy and have no intention of entering the room without knocking or calling you name.I noticed this as one of the concerns in a guest review so I thought I would address it.
Kindness courtesy and consciousness would be greatly appreciated while you stay with us. Please be aware of leaving lights on and securing doors when leaving. If you have a question or concern please ask. We are here to help and guide your stay to be a memorable one. mahalo! Check in is any time after 4pm and check out is any time before 10 am. Respect our neighbors by keeping quiet time from 9:00 pm thru 8:00 am. Ask permission to enter neighboring properties. It is customary to remove your shoes before entering a home in Hawaii.
Hale Kokomo offers ample on site parking - Please do not park on the road or on neighbors' property
We had a really good experience staying at hale kokomo. Gary and Marianne were excellent hosts. We were able to get in at around 11 pm on the first night without any trouble. The room and the shared bathroom were very clean.
When we visit Maui again, we'll definitely stay here!
After staying in one of the big resorts it was a wonderful contrast to stay at Gary and Marianne's.
A word of advice, this is a private home so stick to the 4:00
pm arrival time and unlike us you won't be barging in on Gary and Marianne's dinner.
The house itself is a charming older structure that is being preserved at great effort in a climate that is very hard on wood.
If you are tired of the heat, crowds and the beach then this is a good place to cool off and see another side of Hawaii. It also makes a good launching point for the sunrise at Haleakalah (90 minute drive).
The accommodations were lovely...quiet peaceful and very relaxing. The hosts were charming and accommodating. First time airbnb users need to know that evidently breakfast is not included, which I wrongly assumed based upon the second 'b' in the name! It appears that several past guests did receive yummy pancakes which confused me.
Al though we do not have a buffet breakfast I do recall asking you both mornings about coffee or tea, I also had offered oatmeal or granola and your reply both mornings with no thank you. You seemed to be in a rush to meet up with your group. I respected that, perhaps clearer communication would provide a different outcome. Thank you again for choosing us for your stay on Maui.

My daughter and I had an enjoyable one day stay at Gary and Marianne's house. The hosts were quick and easy to communicate with. Had great insider information. Their home is awesome! Beautiful, comfortable and conveniently located. The pictures were true what is presented on AirBnB. I truly wish we had another day or two on the North side.
Helped us with a last-minute booking when we were stranded in haiku with no place to stay.
Happy to help you guys out with that rescue. So sorry about the last minute cancellation you encountered, next miracle was securing Hana the next day hope you had a fabulous time you will have to let us know about your stay at the Aloha cottages ? Mahalo until next time!!!
I was in Maui for business and the hotel I always stay at had no availability for one of the nights, so I decided to try Airbnb for the first time. My first experience couldn't have been better! Gary and Marianne 's house is beautifully decorated! The room and bathroom are very clean! The kingsize bed is super comfortable! At first I had concern about the lack of AC, but temperature drops down at night, so there is absolutely no need for AC. Gary and Marianne are great hosts! Marianne was very attentive. She made sure guests are comfortable and had everything we needed. Gary made very yummy banana pancakes for us in the morning. I would definitely stay with them again next time I'm in Maui. Highly recommend this listing!
We are so grateful for all our wonderful guests we are privileged to share our home with. Thank you Lisi for taking the time to write such a gracious review of your stay with us. I hope in the future we can replace your hotel stay with a home visit to Maui. Now you have friends on the island!!!!
We had a great stay at Gary and Marianne's house. They were very friendly and welcoming, and the room and house are beautiful. Would stay there again!
