I've been coming to Maui for 32 years. I was initially drawn to the wind sports, including windsurfing and now kite boarding, but there are so many more reasons I keep coming back! I hope you enJoy Upcountry Maui as much as I do!

Lovely location, clean and comfortable home, convenient to Makawao, Paia, and Haleakala
This property was incredibly clean, well furnished and comfortable. We enjoyed lovely views from the great room and lanai. The kitchen was great for cooking as a family;It was well appointed, scrupulously clean, nice appliances. We ate on the lanai half the time, nice outdoor table and chairs, such great rainbows every morning, view of the ocean. We never turned on the TV, which was state of the art. We read and chatted in the evening, those sofas were so inviting. Washer/dryer was a nice touch, much appreciated. There was an additional suite on the ground floor that looked very well done, making this home perfect for an extended family or larger group.
The weather in Makawao was cooler than most of Maui, and we did NOT miss A/C. Ceiling fans and open windows created a cool breeze by day, and we actually slept under cozy blankets at night because it was so deliciously cool.
Makawao is a very short walk, and the Rodeo General Store supplied last minute additions to dinner. Paia was a short drive, as was Haiku. We had our choice of grocery stores as well. Lots of wonderful restaurants in both Makawao and Paia: Wooden Crate, Cafe Mambo, not to be missed! Ho'okipa Beach and Baldwin's Beach were our favorites for sand and waves.
The owner was easy to work with, very responsive to questions.
This is a nicely located, very good value, well done home for an upcountry experience.
So nice to hear when guests enjoy their stay! The sunny days and cool evenings that Makawao offers make for an idyllic climate and Pookela Paradise is front and centre on the rainbow views when morning rain clouds hover over Haiku while Makawao remains in the sunshine. That’s why a rainbow 🌈� is a part of our logo.
Charming upcountry house, close to Makawao with a panoramic view of the ocean and West Maui mountain
Lovely upcountry house, just up the hill from Makawao with commanding panoramic view of ocean and West Maui mountains. Well appointed kitchen and great amenities including Roku enabled TV. Owner is very friendly and responsive, wonderful to deal with. Great place for cyclists and the owner is one! Superb choice for an upcountry getaway!
Always a pleasure to have active visitors come and enjoy the fabulous biking and other activities that upcountry Maui has to offer!
Wonderful place to stay !
Loved it ! The house was cleans and had everything we needed to enjoy our time in wonderful Maui! The owner was very nice and responded very quickly to all my questions and requests! I would definitely stay here again when we return !
Great views and cozy house.
My entire family and I enjoyed our stay. The house has great amenities and an awesome view. We would definitely recommend this house for a large family or group!
Great views in a beautifully set up and spacious home.
We really enjoyed our stay in Up-Country Makawao. The home has everything that’s needed for several couples, or a family, with a very well appointed kitchen, excellent tv system with Netflix and plenty of movies on hand and, of course, great views. If you want to get away from from the touristy hustle and bustle this home is a great option. However, like anywhere away from hotel areas, be prepared for the roosters and barking dogs early in the morning.
While it's true all of upcountry Maui has a feral chicken population, the good news is there are none roosting in close proximity to Pookela Paradise, but rather off in the distance, which makes a huge difference on how impactful they are. There are also dogs in the neighborhood, just as there are in any residential neighborhood. They don't necessarily bark in the morning, but rather when something gets their attention, as dogs do.
Great house in the hills!!
The house was great for what we wanted! Off the beaten path, on the hill surrounded by green, and lots of amenities!! We had a family with 7 adults and 1 baby. The home had a pack n play and booster seat already there which was really convenient! Lots of towels and the kitchen is fully stocked with anything you could need! The view is beautiful so the deck is perfect for sitting outside!
So close to all the North Shore beaches, attractions, and restaurants! Perfectly situated between Hana Highway and Haleakala Highway, two of the major attractions Maui has to offer! Only 10 minutes from Makawao Forest!
Staying in Upcountry offers the experience great climate, fabulous views and fantastic Upcountry sunsets! Po’okela Paradise invites adventure and relaxation in the heart of Upcountry Maui. This newly renovated home with spectacular West Maui and South Shore views is centrally located for all your North Shore and Upcountry activities. Ideal for those into water sports such as wind surfing, kite boarding and surfing, consider it your “command post” where you may wake up in the morning and immediately see where the conditions are best! Once you decide where to go, you are only 12 minutes to Paia Bay, 15 minutes to Ho'okipa, 15 minutes to Sprecklesville, and 20 minutes to Kanaha Beach. You will also remain central to all the Upcountry activities such as hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, road biking, zip lines, and sightseeing in Haleakela National Park. This home is a short walk to Makawao Town, which has become a tourist attraction in and of itself: Once a cowboy town, charming and quaint, Makawao now features many boutique shops and fine restaurants.
