Makawao house description

Our Hawaiian English Cottage is a beautful and quaint home in Upcountry Makawao, Olinda, Maui. This wonderful cottage is 1500 sqaure feet big and located a few miles above the historic town of Makawao. The area is tranquil encompassing the beauty of nature. The cottage is at a perfect elevation. The climate is temperate with temperature usually in the 80's/70's year round. In the eve's in winter it get's down to 60's/50's which is perfect fireplace weather! This is ideal climate for a relaxing sojourn, a perfect romantic retreat, a serene space for writing, meditation, and artistic endeavors. It also lends itself to a fun family holiday.

The location is up a meandering country road that captures the fragrance of eucalyptus that line the road. Here you will experience the real upcountry Maui away from the bustle of the tourist scene. This quaint and private retreat is only 15 minutes to restaurants, shops, pubs, galleries, yoga and massage spa, and a general store.

The cottage is surrounded by nature and fresh clean air. Serenity and peace will engulf you as you approach the manicured lawns and organic orchard of lemons and plums.

At night the sky fills with an abundance of twinkling stars. Sometimes you might get lucky and see a falling star or moonbow.

The charming living room has wood floors an inviting push button fireplace. There are plenty of windows which offer an airy feel. The living room is decorated with cozy comfort in mind. There is an air of welcoming charm. The essence is a casual feel of relaxation with a touch of elegance.

Truth be known, when folks visit, they do not want to leave. The energy is very positive and relaxing on the soul.

There is a nice dinning room that seats 6.

There is a big screen TV with a special box for movies. (no regular TV)

The country kitchen is lovely, equipped and adequate for cooking with all basic appliances.

The bathroom is charming with clawfoot tub and nice tiled shower.
The master bedroom has a views of the garden and trees. Pillows, mattress, bedding are all new. Sheets are of good quality. The master bedroom features a king bed.

There is a washer and dryer tucked away in a closet which is a great convenience.

The 2nd bedroom has a full size bed. An air mattress can also be requested.

The 2 acres includes a backyard fire pit and picnic bench, (SMORES!).

We are located in close proximity to many attractions. The historic Makawao town is 14 minutes down our mountain road where there are many choices of restaurants, shops, pubs, galleries, yoga, massage spa, and general store. Very Close by is Piiholo Ziplines and horseback riding. Forest Bike trails are 14 minutes away.

The neighborhood is great for walking and there are fantastic hiking trails just 1/2 mile away.
Only 18 minutes to the wonderful Saturday Upcountry Farmer's Market where you can buy everything from local organic vegetables to homemade ravioli to freshly cooked Indian food. Only 18 minutes to Pukalani where you can find the 24-hour Foodland supermarket and fast food.

One of our favorite restaurants is Bev Gannon's Hali'imaile General Store which is only a 20/25 minute drive.

It is 25/35 minutes to Paia beaches. The famous Spreckelsville Kid Friendly beaches, Ho'okipa Windsurfing beach and Jaws big surf site are only a 25/40 minute drive.
