Private, light-filled, walk to Makawao town, central to all the beauty of Maui
About Lucia Maya
My partner and I live and work on Maui and Molokai, Hawaii. We both have vacation rentals, and also do energy healing work with intuitive guidance. Our previous vacation rentals have received 5 star reviews and I've been a Superhost. I work by phone with clients worldwide, and also offer in-person sessions, so if you're interested in a Reiki/Intuitive healing session or an intuitive reading during your stay, be sure to mention that when you book! We love to travel, especially to visit friends and family on the mainland and often stay in vacation rentals ourselves. We want our own vacation rentals to be as comfortable and beautiful as the places we like to stay!
Lucia Maya purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Lucia Maya chose Makawao
We love living on Maui, and love the cooler weather of upcountry Maui. We're a 5 minute walk from charming Makawao town and still close to beaches. This home has lush, flowering plants and fruit trees all around, and has always been well cared for. We are artists who enjoy creating beautiful spaces for ourselves and others to enjoy!

Cool and peaceful
This property was perfect for my stay. It was so hot out but there was a lovely breeze blowing through the house and it was quiet and had everything I needed. Would have enjoyed live TV and have never used a coffee press but in the end it didn’t matter. Enjoyed
Makawao base for adventures
Great home base for exploring the west side of the island – Paia, Haleakalā, the Upcountry, etc. – after spending first part of trip in the Kaanapali resort area. Makawao is a great little town, walkable from the house.
Attention to Detail
A blissful stay at the cottage which is inviting, thoughtfully decorated and extremely clean. Gracious host and wonderfully comfortable accommodations. Relaxing front yard with fruit trees. Within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants downtown in Makawao. All questions were quickly answered. Our family would not hesitate to stay here again.
Lucia’s home is located in Makawao, Hawaii, United States.
We are 2 blocks from Makawao town, a charming small town with art galleries, cafes, restaurants, a general store/natural foods deli, clothing boutiques, and gifts shops.
We are just a 15 minute drive to the beauty of Baldwin beach, Paia town, and the convenience of Costco and the airport, and about 30-40 minutes to the South side beaches/restaurants of Kihei and Wailea. We're 45-60 minutes from the attractions of Lahaina and Kapalua, including great snorkeling beaches, restaurants, etc. We are about 45-60 minutes from the top of Haleakala, the mountain that is named "house of the rising sun", where both sunrise and sunsets are beyond magical.
Our home and rental cottage are at 1,500 feet above sea level, part-way up the mountain of Haleakala. It is about 5-10 degrees cooler here than sea level, making for very comfortable year round temperatures. It can be cool and rainy in winter months, but there's almost always sun and warmth somewhere on the island!
We are away from most of the crowded tourist areas, but still close to all the beauty you can imagine on the gorgeous island of Maui.
Our neighborhood is generally quiet, but it is a residential area with children and dogs close by, etc...
Renting a car while here is recommended, so please inquire about renting our 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT hatchback! There is easy parking at our cottage. There is a bus system on Maui, but it is limited.
