Unit: Kula Treat | Maui Guidebook
This ground-level, two bedroom suite is in a private Upcountry home, tucked away in a quaint residential neighborhood close to the Kula Lodge Restaurant, local farmers market and small grocery store. (see below for more details about Kula.) The friendly owner lives in the attached house upstairs and is readily available if needed, while still affording guests full privacy.
This is a clean, comfortably furnished apartment-type rental with two pretty big bonuses you rarely find in this price range: A private hot tub with sun deck, and a bonus bedroom – living space. The bonus room includes a queen sofa sleeper, dining table, closet, and work bench that guests have remarked are perfect for setting up computers and/or sharing with an additional guest/couple. New bedding, bath and beach towels are provided as well. This suite is equipped with wireless internet along with Cable TV, including premium channels such as Showtime and HBO.
The kitchenette includes fridge, microwave, toaster-oven and two-burner hot plate. Of course all the must have amenities are included – coffee maker, dishes, glasses, tableware for four and cookware. The shared high quality front-load washer and dryer are right outside the kitchenette.
The grounds offer a variety of mature fruit trees including Meyer lemons, oranges, haas avocados, mangoes and cherimoya. Guest have a reserved off street parking spot.
Kula is cooler than the resort areas, and centrally located, which is why many Maui residents choose to live here. For active visitors, you can plan on seeing a large variety of what Maui has to offer using Kula as your base.
Convenience-wise, Haleakala Crater, Upcountry, North Shore and the Back Side of Haleakala (to Hana) and Kipahulu (aka Seven Sacred Pools) are all a much more easily accessed from this location than the resort areas in West and South Maui. Here is our general article about Upcountry.

“Upcountry” is as much a lifestyle as it is a place. Many people who live Upcountry consider themselves to be quite different from those fancy “city-slickers” who live in paces like Kahului, Wailuku, Kihei or West Maui. Take the “up” off and you have the closest translation of what this term would mean on the mainland: “Country” (with a capital C!)
