About Mark

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!

Mark purchased this House in 2009

The location offers the ideal mix of proximity to Makawao and all the North Shore attraction yet worlds apart on it's own private land with spectacular views.

Very memorable time together for three generations. The roosters of Makawao begin crowing at 3 am which, ahem, surprised us! I am sure we will remember them, too!

                                                                  Comfortable and Beautifully updated

                                                                  Our stay on Maui was great in big part because of our booking at Pookela Paradise. Mark was very easy to communicate with and provided a very nice place for us to stay. The house is well set up and has great views. It has all the things we needed and is in a perfect location as long as you have a car to get around the island. We were even able to store our bags on the last day so that we could take off for the day and not worry about what was in our car all day at the beach. Thanks, would love to stay here again another time.

Nice and cool in the evenings and plenty of space to spread out our water-sports gear in the evenings. Meals on the deck were fabulous; and the entire interior looks to have been remodeled recently - all in really great shape; wonderful beds and bathrooms. Highly recommended!

                                                                  Owner's Response:
