STMP2014-0001. GET/TAT W-25406593-01. Haleakala Princess Estate is a very unique vacation rental in Upcountry Maui. This home was designed for Abigail Kapiolani Kawananakoa and has been lovingly restored by the current owner. Careful attention has been paid to every detail, from the gardens to the interior and exterior of both the Main House and the Guest Cottage. There are two homes on this property – a three bedroom main house and the two bedroom guest cottage. Each are well separated from the other, with separate gated entrance, separate parking, private hot-tub, and private yard / garden area. The cottage faces up to Haleakala, while the Main House faces down to the ocean. The most amazing feature at the Guest Cottage is the huge outdoor deck which looks down over a gorgeous garden. This garden area has a large redwood hot-tub, with a small trickling waterfall next to it, lounge chairs, and a table/chairs for “dining in the garden”. This entire side of the property is for the private use of our cottage guests. The huge tiled deck has another dining set, chairs, and a gas BBQ. The Guest Cottage has two bedrooms (king, queen beds), two full bathrooms (both with showers), a spacious living room / dining area, and full kitchen. The bed linens are soft and luxurious. Sink into the comfy bed, and enjoy an amazing night of sleep. This is definitely not the city, and the only thing you’ll hear are the sigh of the wind, and the sounds of the birds. To be sure that you stay comfy year round, the cottage has both heat and A/C. You probably won’t use it, since it’s so nice with the doors wide open, but it’s there if you want it. Other amenities include: large flat screen TV with DVD, WiFi, laundry.

Kula is the most scenic of Maui's rural upcountry villages. It has a slow pace, and truly encourages you to relax and unwind.
Haleakala Princess Estate is in the small rural town of Kula. Kula can be considered the 'heart' of Upcountry. The climate here is cooler, with mists swirling in the valleys and groves of eucalyptus sheltering pastures full of cattle. Kula is also the habitat of the exotic Protea flowers and several farms grow acres of the many different varieties that are shipped all over the world. Kula onions are said to be among the sweetest in the world. As you drive through Kula, you'll see pasture land with cows, horses, goats or sheep, farm land with flowers, vegetables, lavender, or fruits.
The Tedeschi Winery in Ulupalukua is Hawaii's only vineyard. Stop and taste the Tedeschi products at the historic little stone tasting room, which was once a jail. The immaculate grounds, landscaped with 100-year-old trees, are a great place for a loaf of bread, a bottle of wine and a designated driver! But the crowning jewel is the summit of 10,023 foot Haleakala. From here, the sunrise is like no place else on earth.
Year Purchased: 1992
About: We almost sold our Haleakala Princess property, but then we looked around, and realized that we would never be able to have something so special again. We turned around, and did a full refurbishing, updating every detail to a condition that we think the Princess would have appreciated. WE look forward to sharing this special home with you.
Why Kula: There is something magical about this property. The cottage has such a beautiful garden setting, and the main house has an ocean view that will almost make you cry. I can't think of a better place to own a property in Maui.
