About the Property

HOUSE 1 Rental group at a time PRIVATE and PEACFUL

We welcome you to our upcountry retreat. Away from the city in the upcountry Rain Forest. This is a full 2 bedroom 2 bath home on 5.5 acres land. The home is a beautiful vintage style with lots of wood interior. We have a Fire Place in the master bed room, Hot Tub on the deck, with a built in BBQ area. There is a Full Kitchen separate Dining area seats 6. We keep the place very clean with nice Hawaiian style furniture, Art and amenities! Look over the photos. Feel free to email your questions. We would be happy to welcome you to our home on the hill. Leave your work at home and be ready to relax.

Whats Special About our retreat: The home is located up above Makawao on a small winding county road. The property has jurassic size trees and lush rain forest plants, an open grass pasture, lovely privet deck with clean Jacuzzi and BBQ. It’s very quiet at night and there are no street lights so the stars are clear and bright. The property is on 5.5 acres so you will feel comfortable and secluded in your rain forest getaway. Driving to the home, you will pass one of the best ZIP LINE activates on the Island. Be sure to stop in and consider giving it a try. You'll ride over the lush Piiholo forest and there are natural waterfalls and 5 swimming ponds below— where locals have enjoyed a cool dip for years. Makawao has some of the best food on Maui and has grown into a high quality art and boutique town. .

More special attractions : Just a short drive and you’re in the hip surfing town, Paia. From there you make a right turn and you’re on your way to Hana home of the infamous 7 Pools. After a long day of sightseeing or surfing you will enjoy a Jacuzzi and then relax and watch a movie or snuggle up by the wood fire place in the master bedroom! I truly feel Maui is the best vacation island for your Hawaii experience.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: I just love arts and crafts. My rental is a work of art, I love creating a space and keeping it in top shape. I take pride in the quality of our beautiful upcountry getaway and I know you will be happy with how clean and well maintained we keep the property. My family wants you to remember your stay with us and feel good about recommending us to your friends and family for years to come. Feel free to drop me a line. I'll be glad to answer all your questions. We aim to please and make your stay with us a time to cherish!

Why Makawao, HI, USA:
We bought this home for my family. We fixed it up and were raising Alpaca's on the land for years. A few years later we bought a classic 1953 old plantation home in downtown Makawao. We converted the home into a place where our family and friends could stay. We enjoy staying there on the weekends when no one is making use of it. When up there, It’s so beautiful I have a hard time returning to our in-town home Monday morning after a relaxing weekend.
