John is very helpful and friendly.The house is in the middle of island with huge front and back yard.we watched sunset a couple times from the front porch and really enjoy our family vacation here.the only downside is location of house is a little too far from the beach,about 45 minutes drive.
The best boogie boarding, surf and kite boarding beaches on the island are actually 25 minutes away. I kite board almost daily and get there in 20 minutes regularly. ( Kite Beach, Baldwin, Hookipa )
Kihei beaches are 45 minutes are 45 minutes.
The house is on a beautiful estate, and in a great location upcountry in Kula - outstanding views, remote location but convenient to Makawao and not too far from the North shore beaches. We were there over New Years and being in this peaceful location was a great change of pace, and we'd spend days/nights in Paia which was convenient.
The unit is comfortable, clean and well-lit and lots of space. Enough kitchen equipment to make breakfast and enjoy the morning. The views were as advertised and you can catch great panoramic sunsets. Overall, highly recommend staying here and we were very happy with our experience.
John has a great, expansive property up in Kula. The views (and especially sunsets) are really spectacular. It was easy to find the address and get access to the rental.
A few notes: A few of the photos we initially saw on this listing were slightly deceiving; the bedroom photos were not current and some of the amenities (the great patio, laundry machines, etc.) are actually part of the main estate and not easily accessed from the rental (the two are directly attached). The kitchen is actually more of a kitchenette, as it has a hot plate instead of a full oven.
The place wasn't exactly what we were expecting based on the photos, and we were a little uneasy about leaving the unit full of our stuff while out traveling (the main door to the unit is a sliding door that doesn't lock, and the door leading to the main house also doesn't lock from inside the rental) so we ended up finding another place to stay.
John was very quick to acknowledge the issue and refund our money. He was also very prompt to update this listing with our feedback, which was very much appreciated. Thanks John!
John's very lovely family hosted us in Maui. We loved the location and views of the apartment! It was a two bedroom, spacious living room and dining area that we rented. Everything was nicely furnished and very comfortable. Can't get over the beautiful views! Thanks again!
It was our pleasure to provide you with your accommodations! We look forward to seeing you again when you return to Maui.
John was a great host. Friendly, welcoming, good recommendations for local food. The place is beautiful: quiet area, well-appointed, and relaxing. It's a great base to see the summit area of Haleakala, and we would definitely stay with him again, if the opportunity arises.
My daughter and I stayed here for six nights. John and his family treated us very well. They provided everything we would need to be comfortable. There was fruit and a well stocked fridge when we arrived. Their kids were active and friendly and my daughter enjoyed playing with them and the trampoline. It's a very comfortable place to stay.
