Large, private swimming pool with electric cover. Vacation in a charming, kama`aina style plantation home surrounded by the beauty of nature. Kulike is a unique vacation property in a very tranquil, rural setting. The unique style, and freshness of the home complements the 'off the beaten path' location. It is the perfect location to return to after a day of exploring the island.
Kulike has been used in Pottery Barn photo shoots, and was featured in the February 2012 issue of Coastal Living Magazine. Coastal Living is quoted as saying 'Coming here is about being outside, enjoying the views and spending time with each other'.
Kulike is a classic Hawaiian design with modern amenities. It offers a very quiet country setting, with several acres of property, lovely ocean views, hundreds of tropical plants and trees, AND a 40ft swimming pool (with electric cover). Enjoy our little nature walk showcasing rare palms and plants. Many are labeled for your reference.
Our home was completed in 2005 and building materials were chosen to blend with the coastal elements - Douglas fir walls, hickory pecan floors, and mahogany window frames. We also wanted to be sustainable, and have catchment water, solar hot water, photovoltaic system for the pool pump, and of course our fresh air 'solar' clothes line (of course we also have a clothes dryer in the house).
The interior was designed in the style of a Kama`aina plantation house for a casual easy-going lifestyle. It has wide covered decks, full kitchen (including a commercial style range), two bedrooms with queen beds, one children's room with 2 single beds, laundry, TV/DVD, high speed wireless internet access. Many of the furnishings are antiques.
This is a very special environment for the guest that truly wants to feel as though they have escaped!

Why Cathy or Melody chose Haiku-Pauwela
We visited Maui for years before deciding that we wanted to have our own property. We wanted it to be lush and tranquil. This location was perfect. We secured the land, and then started to design the house. We wanted something very different from our mainland home so that we'd come to Hawaii and feel that we'd escaped the hustle/bustle. The style resembles on old plantation home, but has top quality finish features. We love our home, and hope that you will too.

this property is absolutely spectacular. well equipped with all that you need. comfy chairs and beds. very clean and tidy. the grounds are just lovely. area is very quiet and relaxing all around. I have recommended this property to several friends and family. the management company is very friendly and helpful. this was a wonderful trip for me and my family one that I will never forget. I sure hope to return someday again.
We rented this house seeking peace and tranquility and it could not have been more perfect. Everything from the beautiful grounds to the spotless charming and tasteful interior was amazing. The location was great for exploring everything the north shore has to offer. The towns are charming with great shops and restaurants. Be sure to go to the farmers market in Kula. Really good fish and produce. We look forward to returning soon!!
We came to Maui for a family vacation. We had 4 adults and two small children with us. I travel extensively for business so I've become a bit of a critic of lodging places. So I have to say that this house was one of the most peaceful, well designed and charming places I have ever stayed at. I was so impressed with just the craftsmanship put into this home, it was beautiful. The kids absolutely loved their bunk beds and the little hiding spot up top. The grown ups loved the peace of the location, the views, THE OVEN and just the overall feel of the place. The location is fairly close to Lower Paia (Flatbread was great), Haiku (Colleen's was amazing brunch) and Makawao (the cutest little Main St with great shops). The area is more of a quite, peaceful place - which is exactly what I needed. Would recommend this place to anyone needing a truly relaxing place to stay for a few days where you can just disconnect and spend time with the family and loved ones.
Wonderful - Beautiful and Private
We have visited Maui numerous times and this is the nicest place we have stayed. It was lovely - very private and quiet. I hate to admit that our favorite activity was just hanging out, reading at the pool or on the porch, and cooking in the evening in the nicely equipped kitchen. The property has many interesting birds to watch and listen to. Every day a group of five beautiful white egrets flew in and hung around the far side of the pool. It was fun to see the turtles on the nearby beach. The decor is quite attractive and homey and the kitchen has a professional stove. The TV channels aren't great (Dish TV) but there is Apple TV with Netflix, you can watch your own Amazon Prime, etc). There is no A/C, but in October it was breezy and pleasant, plus there are plenty of ceiling and floor fans, so heat was never a problem. I saw a complaint about the geckos in another review, but those are part of any tropical home scene and are not a pest to be eradicated. Think of them as complimentary house pets. They are cute, make a pleasant chirp, and eat insects. If you don't want to drive back to the airport area for groceries, the large Haiku Market, a full service grocery store, is just a few minutes away, on the other side of Highway 36. Management was attentive and pleasant. This house is a world away from the busy beaches and traffic at Kihei and Wailea, but if you need the beach, those areas are only a few minutes away.
Great stay with kids and grandparents
Excellent, beautiful property. Very well maintained, and well designed. We loved spending time in the pool and on the lovely outdoor deck.
Off the beaten path, but that is part of its charm. We are looking to rebook in a few months. :)
So happy that you enjoyed your time at Kulike. I'm hoping those open dates in June work out for you, as we'd love to have you return.
Having never been to Maui I was a little leery to be off the beaten tourist path in up country, however, the location turned out to be perfect. Within a short drive of Pa'ia and Haiku, there are plenty of excellent restaurant choices (make sure to book a reservation at Mama's Fish House ... best meal of our trip). The other benefit of the location is the proximity to the road to Hana (really the property is right at the beginning) and a large number of hikes that would otherwise be an hour drive from the typical beach properties in the south and west of Maui. The property is set in a lush rain forest area that was terrific for the kids (5 and 10) to explore. The lanai provided a great spot to have a coffee in the morning or read a book at night. The house itself was very well done. The large family room area was the perfect place to relax and watch some Netflix at night.
A vacation in Haiku Maui is an opportunity to escape from the hustle and bustle, and experience a different side of Maui. Set just a few hundred feet above sea level, Kulike is surrounded by tropical vegetation, with a view down to the ocean. Just a few miles down the road is a town center, with a variety of amenities, restaurants and services. Most properties in this area are rural in style, with two acres or more. Tropical vegetation provides a lush, green backdrop to the ocean views.
