Recent Makawao reviews

  • Amazing place, we want to move here.

    "This was by far the best place we stayed at during our recent trip to Hawaii. That included three hotels in Waikiki, and two places on the Big Island. If I have ever dreamed about a place to go to relax, retire permanently , or even a little slice of heaven this is it. We knew it would be good when we drove in after following very well written directions and found our names written on a chalkboard at the front door. From there the discovery of this well-thought out cottage kept us saying "Oh wow!" There's a nice jacuzzi tub when you enter, on a enclosed patio with a reading area and a breakfast table. The living space includes a very comfortable bed and amazing sofa table in the TV area. The kitchen is well equipped, and has a few nibbles to keep you from starving. The best part of all is the bathroom, with a shower room that is covered is green tiles - with live orchids and a skylight. We couldn't say enough positive things about our experience here, would never stay anywhere else in Maui (perhaps except Hana because the trip to get there is so taxing) after staying here. We're afraid to write too good a review because others may book our spot the next time we want to go. If you are interested in this property then look no further, you won't find anything better."

  • Beautiful home with a spectacular view!

    "We had a wonderful stay in Makawao! This home is beautiful. It is laid out very well and takes full advantage of the spectacular views! Mark, the owner, is extremely friendly and very responsive. We couldn’t have asked for more. The kitchen comes stocked with everything you need to cook a good meal. The full size W/D and laundry room is also very nice to have. We really appreciated all the additional amenities: beach chairs, snorkel gear, hundreds of DVDs, Apple computer, and more. Also, the furniture is extremely comfortable making the house a great place to hangout. The house is close enough to easily walk to Makawao which is a very friendly town that offers several great dinning / shopping options. Overall, this is a beautiful, well equipped house with a very responsive owner. We stayed here for one month and couldn’t have been happier!"

  • What a place to start our honeymoon!

    "We flew in from the mainland and the Octagon Studio was our first stop. What a way to begin our honeymoon...perfect! Upcountry Maui is very beautiful, lush and full of flowers!! It is cooler at night because of the elevation and as we hit a unusually cool spell we could not open the doors and windows and enjoy the open flow. Can imagine that must be amazing. We enjoyed the hottub instead and it was so relaxing! It is a small cottage but has everything you need and is as beautiful as in the pictures. VERY private!! Even if the main unit is occupied you will not feel crowded and you are tucked in your own little private corner. It is situated perfectly if you would like to explore Upcountry, Haleakala and the road to Hana. We had a enjoyed a perfect massage and the hosts are genuinely nice and caring but give you ample space and privacy. We had dinner at the Steakhouse in Makawao, very good! Thank you for making our start so beautiful and perfect!"
