We had been searching kind of last min for place near Mt Haleakala and ended up spending a couple of nights at Kula Sandalwoods. Place was clean, bed comfortable and quiet. That said there is no AC, no internet, no fridge or access to ice machine, and balcony has no furniture. Would have been nice to be able to chill... More

The room is very basic: bed, desk, TV, bathroom, heater. But if you are looking for someplace clean, spacious, and with excellent customer service, then this is the place. Our flight was scheduled to arrive late in the evening and they accommodated our late check-in without any problems. They even shared some great tips for our Haleakala Sunrise adventure. Before...

We stayed here 4 nights in late January. Exceptionally clean rooms. The bed was very comfortable and warm ( temps dropped to high 40s) The air smelled sweet and lovely. Chilly but owners provided small heater which felt great! Beautiful views. Close to Haleakala so no getting up at 2 am! Delicious simple breakfast. Friendly kind and welcoming owners who... More

We stopped here the way down from Haleakala (as usual!) And had a lovely lunch. Yes, the service is a bit laid back but the owner, who always serves us, was very pleasant and friendly. We had a nice chat with him and he informed us he had been there for 25 years. We have been going approximately every 3-4... More

We stayed a couple of nights here while exploring the Upcountry area of Maui. The location of the cottages is close to the entrance (less than 30 minutes) of Haleakala National Park, so it saved us getting up 2 hours earlier to see the sunrise. The views from the cottage are spectacular. We could see the west Maui Mountains, the... More

Stayed one night. Quaint and clean accommodations. No refrigerator in the room which was a problem for us although the staff did provide a cooler with ice which helped some. Lots of small gnats inside when windows were open even though there were screens. Biggest complaint is that housekeeping came to clean our room as we were moving our stuff... More

My first night in Maui was spent here and they could not have been more accommodating. I wanted to see the Haleakula sunrise first thing, and they gave me some tips and it cut off quite a bit of time by staying so close to the park entrance. When I returned, I went down to the restaurant for a really... More

We ate here for lunch after driving up to Haleakala. Such a cute place with very personal service. I had a Kailua pork sandwich, hubby had a burger. They came with a slaw & tortilla chips. Slaw could have had more dressing as it was only drizzled on the cabbage. We were greeted by owner & his young son. Meal... More

We stayed two nights while visting the Upcountry Kula area. This was the perfect location to launch of first day of activity visiting Haleakala National Park for sunrise. The drive was a quick 11 miles to the Park entrance. There was no need to get up extremely early because of the ideal location... so nice to be close to Haleakala... More

We did an excursion to the Haleakala summit for sunrise and then biked our way down. We stopped for breakfast here which was a midway point down the mountain on our bikes. We were 3 people who ordered breakfast. My husband and I had a breakfast sandwich; my sister had scrambled eggs. The bill was $40. Coffee was mediocre and... More
