Vrbo Bear Stay review
Quiet, clean, cool atr night and a wonderful stay!
Very well cared for. Great location away from the resorts and pace of the coast.
Beautiful place in upcountry Maui. If your looking for a beach vacation would not stay here. But for hiking/biking and proximity to the whole island it was very central. Beutiful place with plenty of room for family of 4. Kitchen well stocked. Owner very responsive- washing machine broke but he actually came and did our laundry at an adjacent house! Nice deck. Master bath with nice walk-in shower. Rainy part of island but with nearly constant rainbows. Great escape- would stay again!
Thanks for staying Ed!
It was a pleasure to have you here. The washer broke right before your visit and unfortunately I was unable to get a replacement delivered while you were still here. I'm glad I was able to take care of your laundry for you while it was broken. To future guests - I just installed a brand new, high capacity, front loading LG washing machine yesterday (April 16, 2019) and tested it out and it works flawlessly.
Great location, clean and comfortable property with all the amenities required to feel like home. Mark is very courteous and accommodating. He's provided everything required for a fun day at the beach.
Such a pleasure having Dallas and friends at Pookela Paradise!
Avoid the crowds
We weren't looking for a beach vacation, but rather adventures all over the island so Makawao was the perfect base for us. Walk into town, eat at the Italian place and get some of those doughnuts at the general store !
The house was roomy and comfortable. Having a washer and dryer was amazing. Netflix and other streaming service available but who needs them ? You're on Maui !
Stargazing from the yard at night is sublime.
Mark is there if you need him but won't bug you if you don't. Enjoy your stay.
So happy to have you here! Glad you went star gazing in the big yard, it's amazing a few guests take advantage of that. Would love to have you back anytime!
Mark is a super host, you will love staying here.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pookela Paradise 2 with our well-mannered French Bulldog, Ola. It was a blessing in disguise that the place I was attending a 5 day workshop refused our fur kid. Mark, the owner of Pookela Paradise, was so easy to work with and very responsive to any questions or concerns I had. Plus the location was conveniently located to Makawao town, had a wonderful view from the balcony, a park to walk Ola to and with just a turn in another direction a tranquil area where goats and horses were pastured and more awesome views. Thanks so much, Mark for a super first time experience with VRBO!!
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.
