These are nice cabins that are close to the summit which is amazing if you are going for the sun rise. But there isn't much to it, you get a super comfortable bed, Internet, and tv. The staff is friendly and pointed us to a festival in a nearby town where we saw some awesome art.

My family stopped for breakfast at the cafe on our way to Mt. Haleakala. The location was ideal as the midpoint to the summit from our condo in Kamaole. The food was amazing and service was very friendly. It felt like we were having breakfast with old friends. The owners shared travel tips and great stories. A beautiful setting for... More

The accommodations are nice, but when I stayed there,the cafe was closed, we were the only guests,the TV signal virtually absent,the free Wi-Fi with virtually no reception,so needless. Service provided for the price, unfortunately not the case.

My husband and I stayed here just one night on our way back from a stay in Hana. We went to see the sunset at Haleakala. The room was clean and very comfortable. No frills. My only complaint is that after returning in the dark it was almost impossible to find the place as they leave no lights on at... More

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
