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!

VRBO Bear Stay review
Fantastic host, beautiful house, very clean and comfortable with fantastic views!
We enjoyed our stay at Pookela Paradise 2 and will definitely return. It felt like home. Wonderful, centrally located in upcountry Maui with fantastic views! Mark is a wonderful host and is friendly and accessible. Mahalo!
Thank you for booking with me David!
Beautiful, peaceful, great location!
Loved this slice of Paradise including Miss Kitty (neighbors social cat) who greeted us at our car before and after every adventure. We wanted to stay away from the sea of humanity this time and explore more of the interior of the island. The house was comfy and well equipped and placed us closer to Haleakala and the Lavendar Farm, as well as great eats in Haiku. Makawao is charming and has everything you need including a great market. I would definitely stay here again!
So happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! Would love to have you back anytime. The neighbor's cat certainly is friendly but she isn't allowed inside the house in case anyone with allergies may be wondering.
Comfortable and Beautifully updated
Very comfortable; loved the master shower and 3 bedrooms was perfect for our family. Kitchen was great and we were able to cook breakfast regularly.
We will be back!
Home away from home!
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.
Awesome, Clean house in a Convenient location!
This house is located in a quiet subdivision with great views and a cool breeze! Comfortable home with all the amenities to help make your stay relaxing and stress free!
Thanks! Hope to have you back soon :)
Newly Remodeled - Wonderful space!
This was an easy walk to Makawao and we really enjoyed being upcountry. 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!
Thank you for choosing Pookela Paradise. Hope to have you back soon!
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!
