Why S Wilson chose Makawao
Beautiful location- nestled among 100' eucalyptus trees, several hundred yards from the main road at the end of a tree lined driveway just minutes from Makawao town. Axis deer can often be seen in the front yard and endangered native Hawaiian bats can be seen flying between the trees at dusk. The property is surrounded by open pasture land and is a vibrant farming community. Horses, cattle and goats abound throughout the area amongst a sprinkling of protea, cactus and citrus farms which can be all be seen within minutes of the cottage. Friendly locals, upscale boutiques and art galleries with fabulous restaurants are just two miles away in Makawao town.

Great upcountry retreat!
Very nice secluded upcountry cottage...quiet, clean and comfortable. Siobahn was a great host, will stay again on our next Maui trip. Mahalo from Oahu!
Maui~Comfortable and Peaceful Location
We really enjoyed this upcountry cottage. It was fun being greeted by the goats along the driveway and the cow “mooing” as we arrived. Coming into the house and finding the gifts of coffee and chocolates was a bonus.
The home was truly a retreat. We had a busy three days and would have enjoyed staying longer just to spend more downtime here.
We had no problem getting here as the directions were perfect and easy to follow. Siobhan was responsive nearly immediately to the few questions we had.
This trip was the first time we've used VRBO and we thank the owners for making it a really nice stay.
Mahalo/Thank you from Minnesota and Indiana
comfortable, private, lovely setting
We loved our 4 nights at the country cottage. We woke up to views of trees and the sounds of birds, and enjoyed our private hot tub. The caretaker was attentive to our needs while also respecting our privacy. Delightful!
Lovely rural retreat
Delightful secluded getaway retreat.
charming cottage in upcountry Makawao
We had a wonderful stay in this charming cottage. It was a great base to explore most of the island. It was furnished beautifully with everything we needed. We especially appreciated the large washer and dryer, the fire pit, and the hot tub. It was very quiet and very clean. The road is a little bit of an adventure coming in, but the cottage is well worth it. It is cooler than the coast, so bring a jacket. Makawao is a wonderful place to base all of your exploring. We had a great stay here.
Wonderfully maintained home and grounds! Owners are incredibly responsive to any issues.
Located just six miles to Kula where you'll find the entrance to Haleakala National Park and the Ali'i Lavender Farm. Just three miles from Piiholo Zipline. Six miles to the Surfing Goat Dairy. One mile from the rodeo arena and polo grounds. Makawao town hosts a large array of boutiques, electric shops and restaurants with the area around the town, perfect for scenic drives through the nearby flower farms or long hikes through the surrounding eucalyptus forests.
