Matt and I like to run, bike, and swim in the ocean. We want to share the beautiful place we live and like hosting temporarily here on Airbnb.
As guests we are clean, friendly, and busy.

Matt and Cristina were very welcoming and friendly during my stay. They greeted me with a nicely furnished clean room with a personal greeting card and fresh towels and linens. Their view out the room is breathtaking. They has plenty of food for breakfast.
Zalige locatie!!! Wij zijn aangekomen in het donker en dat was een beetje moeilijk, maar met de wegbeschrijving toch goed gevonden. Laatste stukje naar het huis is steil naar boven over een nogal slechte onverharde weg...dus best aankomen in het licht!!!
Huisje was heel basic maar had alles wat je nodig hebt...fantastische uitzichten, super rustig...
We zijn 3 nachten gebleven en 1 ervan waren de verhuurders niet thuis dus hadden we het huis voor ons alleen...s avonds gezellig gekookt en gegeten en s morgens idem met alleen het gezelschap van de katten en de kippen:-)
Water is low pressure dus je moet wat geduld hebben...maar dat past bij de (email hidden)stig en relaxed. De douche is buiten in de schuur en dat lijkt eerst wat raar, maar het prachtige uitzicht doet je vergeten dat je tussen de bosmaaier en het wasmachine staat te douchen...heerlijk warm water trouwens.
Zeker aan te raden voor mensen die houden van rust en back to basics....
I really want to keep this a secret but I totally enjoyed my stay at Old Style Hawaii. It is truly as stated - a step back in time. The hosts are very thoughtful and willing to answer any questions.
Matt and Christina were great hosts - showing us around the house (and all of Matt's amazing artwork). We cooked dinner in their kitchen (which has everything you'll need for a quick meal). The guest bedroom is comfortable and attached to the bathroom. As mentioned in the listing, the shower is outside and while a bit cold, it was very refreshing. The location was perfect for driving up to see the sunrise at Haleakala (~35-45 mins) and then later exploring the rest of the park. Would highly recommend, Christina and Matt were great.
Cristina and Matt are awesome! They were both so sweet and accommodating when we stayed with them. The house is very rustic like the description states; it is also very charming.
The sunsets were amazing to watch from the porch and the shower view is awesome! We loved admiring all of Matt's artwork throughout the house. - we even bought a print at the grocery store down the road. Kula gets a bit chilly at night in the winter so you may want some warm clothes if you are staying during that season.
The cats an chickens were fun to hang with too!
We would certainly want to stay here again someday. Thanks Cristina and Matt!

Quiet, on the side of the mountain, perfect for the early morning visit to the summit of the volcano
I stayed with Cristina and Matt in upcountry Kula in November 2013. They are awesome hosts! Very accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable about the island. The room is super comfy, great bed, plenty of electricity and outstanding views of the countryside and most of the island. I particularly liked the "outdoors" shower (it's really enclosed but it has a nice sky roof and windows so you can enjoy views of the moon if you shower at night). The whole upcountry vibe was cool, I loved the location of their home right in the middle of the island. A great base to explore both sides of Maui and very convenient to get up to Haleakala (especially at 5am!). Only 20 mins from the north coast and you can pass through Makawao and get some mind-blowing donuts and cream puffs at Komodo's Bakery which is not too far away. Matt & Cristina told me about some great spots on the island and were happy to chat anytime. The cats and chickens were friendly too. :) I'd definitely stay here again. Aloha!
I had a wonderful night in Kula. Out of this world view, nice room in a beautiful and personal home, and Matt and Christina were very helpful and hospitable hosts. Highly recommended!

Cristina and Matt were nice hosts. They offered the access to their kitchen and they provided table cloth and flowers for our dinner with a view. The view is simply fantastic! Our stay was very relaxing. The environment is very quiet. It was very pleasant to walk to the general store and to the restaurant in Kula. The shower in the shed is the shower with the best view in the world. The room, the shared bathroom and the shower in the shed were very simple, as advertized. Great moments in Hawaii.
