Jeff and Kula exude a welcoming aloha spirit that along with the stunning beauty of the Halekalani cottage and views makes for a very special Maui experience. Thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us. We hold lovely memories and the hope of returning. Mahalo-Maureen, Ted, Molly and Dave
Can't say enough about what a great place Halekalani is. Beautiful but very comfortable home. Amazing view. Kind and helpful owner who loves where he lives and loves to share his knowledge. And last but not least, an awesome dog, Miss Kula, to share time with. We cannot wait to go back. Great location for day trips all over the island. Short drive to Haleakala for sunset or sunrise. Good food a short drive away at Kula Bistro. Cooler weather. In all, Halekalani is hard to beat. Thank you Jeff and Kula and we hope to see you again next year.
We loved Jeff's place! Beautiful and modern. Hot tub was relaxing. The shower was really unique and house was comfortable. Kula was the cutest and prettiest dog.
This place made my stay in Maui upcountry fantastic. I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
Wonderful house with all amenities. A home away from home.
Everything we needed was there, and the house was also very tastefully decorated. A fantastic kitchen and a great shower.
All in all: we loved the house!
Jeff was also a very friendly, welcoming and caring host.
Recommended to anyone!
I have no hesitation in recommending the cottage for your next holiday in Paradise. Jeff was the perfect host friendly, helpful and always patient with our never ending questions. Coming from Australia we needed some guidance on basic road rules as we drive on the opposite side of the road which can be challenging. The guide books which are provided in the cottage were helpful when planning where to go and what to see. Jeff's knowledge of the island and recommendations were greatly appreciated his information ensured we didnt miss anything that was a must see.
A big THANK YOU to Jeff for your attention to detail, the cottage felt like a cosy home away from home. We also loved having our own pet, Kula come and welcome us each day on our return.
We had a great time in upcountry paradise. The home was immaculate and beautiful. The kitchen was really great and the deck provided for a beautiful view of Maui. Jeff's dog Kula is an amazing bonus; she is smart and attentive and we really wanted to take her home with us!
Jeff was also an extremely nice host. On our first night he was hosting an annual Christmas carol party that we will never forgot and our glad we got to experience.
If you are planning on staying in upcountry consider staying with Jeff!
Had an amazing stay at Jeff's. The view was incredible and the cottage was exactly as advertised. We never wanted to leave especially after spending our evenings in the company of kula. She really made us feel at home. Would definetly consider staying here on our next visit to Maui.
A place closer to the stars - what an amazing view you have from the lanai and even while having a shower!!! Jeff's place is simply amazing and jeff is the perfect host - he can give you any advices and make sure that you've everything you need and more!!! An other highlight is KULA - the most beautiful dog i ever met!! If MAUI - that's the place to stay and at night time you'll realize why i call it "a place closer to the stars" - mahalo jeff and kula
My family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautifully decorated home. It was a great location from which to explore the whole island, and return to enjoy peaceful sunsets and stargazing. The house has everything you need, from amazing bathroom, to gourmet kitchen, and all the supplies you forgot to bring. In addition, Jeff and his well behaved dog are wonderful hosts. Everything was just perfect!
