About Machiko Heyde

Thirty years ago, Bill was transferred to Maui by a major computer company and he is recently retired. Machiko is an artist and avid gardener.

Machiko Heyde purchased this Cottage in 1988

Why Machiko Heyde chose Kaupakulua

When we moved to Maui over 30 years ago, we immediately fell in love with the Upcountry area more than any other parts of Maui. We purchased this property because of the desirable location and setting. The main house and the guest cottage are perfectly separated from each other, so our guests have their own privacy. We fully renovated and furnished the cottage for our guests travelers. Thanks to our many returning guests, we have been comfortably busy over the past 20 years.

What makes this Cottage unique

This is a perfect location to explore the entire island of Maui. Having its own private driveway, hidden from the public road and the forest on one side of the property creates a unique, hidden hideaway to relax. Quiet, yet very convenient to stores & restaurants. But when you just want to let go of Maui's splendor and relax for the day, this cottage on this property is ideal. A collection of books, DVDs & CDs are also provided to keep you company.

                                                          tj l.

                                                          Perfect alternative located in upcountry Maui. You will love the quiet serene setting in Makawao. The cottage has all the comforts of home and then some. Machiko are and Bill are wonderful hosts and take excellent care of their guests. We highly recommend-you won’t be disappointed!

                                                          It is truly a home away from home.

                                                          Thoughtful touches. Helpful advice and directions. The house is beautiful and spotless. Good location. Truly a place you could stay at for weeks!

                                                          Simply fabulous!

                                                          Tami O.

                                                          A pristine and tastefully appointed living space on manicured grounds, with an abundance of nature. Hosts are gracious and attentive.

                                                          A piece of paradise

                                                          Allan T.

                                                          Our stay at the Philialoha cottage was as fantastic as all the prior reviews suggested it would be. Unlike a stay in a condo or a hotel, there were no other fellow guests getting up early or coming in late. The cottage was pure peace and quiet, aside from the chirping of the birds. Everything we wanted to see was a relatively short drive away and in our 13 nights we saw lots of Maui.

                                                          We particularly liked the fact that Bill and Machiko lived next door so they were there to offer advice as needed, and address any issues that emerged. The cottage is clean, well furnished, and is very well supplied with kitchen hardware. The fresh farm eggs were delicious as were the fresh muffins and scones that awaited us upon our arrival to the cottage. We especially liked having everything needed for a trip to the beach - chairs, coolers, umbrella, sun tan lotion. Also having the washer and dryer was a big bonus as it made for lighter packing.

                                                          We were very happy to have found this cottage and have no hesitation to recommend it to family and friends.

                                                          Relaxing and Quiet, Immaculate!, Close to Everything

                                                          Angie M.

                                                          This private, self-contained cottage is perfect for your Maui vacation. Situated off the main road, down a quiet lane we felt secluded, yet close to charming beach towns like Makawao and Haiku. Beaches were a short scenic drive away. Throughout our week at Pilialoha we were continually impressed with the forethought put into the design of the cottage. Large windows looked out onto eucalyptus trees and rolling hills, with chickens and sheep on adjacent properties. The lanai was a relaxing spot to watch the incredible night skies. The home was comfortabley stocked with all the beach and snorkeling, picnic, and outdoor gear we needed and was immaculately maintained. No mold, no bugs, no peeling paint or worn furnishings. The owners were incredibly helpful and friendly whenever we needed tips on local sites and take pride in their lovely cottage. Our flight was delayed and when we drove in after midnight, the owners had fresh fruit, juices, and pastries waiting for our breakfast. We are telling everyone we know to stay here. The Maui 'up-country' is definitely the place to be! We cannot wait to return!

                                                          Quiet. Restful. Hospitable.

                                                          Patty R.

                                                          The Pilialoha Cottage is clean and orderly—but generous. The hosts are hospitable, but not at all in your face. The cottage us private but spacious and the hosts provide many basics and grace notes that other (far more expensive) condos omit.

                                                          Makawao and the interesting ocean beaches and Haleakala are easy to access from this location.

                                                          We are glad we stayed here.

                                                          Convenient to visit Haleakala National Park and the scenic day trip to Hana. Some of the other Upcountry attractions include art galleries in Makawao and Paia, hiking trails, ziplines, Surfing Goat Dairy, Botanical gardens, Lavender Farm, downhill bicycling, winery, paragliding and eco-farm tours.
