“Highly Recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2011

We chose Kula View BB as our base for exploring Haleakala, which was only ~1hr drive away. The room was comfortable and had everything in it that you would need for day trips to Haleakala. There was a microwave, small fridge and a toaster over in the room. Free wi-fi. Relaxing cds with instrumental music or hawaiian songs. furnishings were new. She even had the 'the road to hana'-drive CD. TV was old and small, had like 3 channels (but we didn't have time to watch any tv). The bathroom was clean and there was a very nice-smelling coconut shower gel. However if you were a tall person then the shower might be a problem. The ceiling of the room was slanted and the bathroom was located on the low part of the slant, so is a bit low. Lots of mosquitoes outside, so every night it was always a mad dash from the car up the stairs to the room.

We loved being up high and away from the crowds. Everything we needed, and more, was provided -- even a CD with native bird songs, so relaxing. We were really looking forward to the Haleakala sunrise, and Susan packed a wonderful breakfast so we could get there in plenty of time. She even has the warm clothes needed to keep from shivering in the 4 a.m. frigid air. I felt really sorry for those from hotels who arrived, shivering, under a blanket. It's close to lots of sightseeing but what we really wanted to do was LOLL in the comfortable, attractive room.

The owner was super nice and as others mentioned thought of EVERYTHING for our Haleakala sunrise trip - she had our breakfast all packed and ready, and gave us jackets to wear along with mittens and everything. WE LOVED the room, very unique and charming without being overly "girly" as my boyfriend would say :-) You do feel as if you're in a treehouse. Great deal for those who want do to the Haleakala sunrise.

The only thing to mention is that this is CASH ONLY. We had to make a pit stop at an ATM to pay for the place, but otherwise, everything is perfect!

Room Tip: Need to call her to reserve

This was a quick hit for us - only one short night and we left at 5AM for the sunrise, but it was cozy, pretty and convenient for heading up to Haleakala. Close to our little Paia for a great dinner. Comfy bed, and everything we needed was right there for us - down to travel coffee mugs. The banana bread was wonderful and we traveled with it for days - still enjoying it as it turned more into a bag of crumbs than bread.
Would really recommend this place.

We wanted to go up Haleakala for the sunrise while in Maui on our honeymoon but are not early risers, so we decided the best thing to do would be to camp out close to the volcano and not have to worry about traveling halfway across the island so early in the morning. Kula View was perfect- a clean cozy room in a quiet town. The breakfasts were great and Susan provided great instructions and recommendations.

We've stayed at Sue's B&B for about a week or more at a time, around February/March for the last 3 or 4 years. Our being repeat guests of Sue's is a testimony to our level of satisfaction with our experience at Kula View.

We completely enjoyed our time as Sue's guests and found her to be always thoughtful and accommodating in all the ways she provided for us. Her breakfasts including fresh local fruit and home baked goodies are a delight.

The room is clean, bright, and comfortably furnished, and adequately supplied with home entertainment and kitchen appliances. The windows provide scenic views of Haleakala, the ocean, and the lush, colourful surrounding vegetation.

We found Sue's garden to be a peaceful setting for quiet relaxation. On the whole, the total experience of our stay at Kula View has been nothing short of thoroughly enjoyable, and we would have no hesitation about staying with Sue in future.

We were really looking forward to a bit of personal service at a B & B. We only met Sue when we arrived and took our money as she was sick after that and didn't answer the door or provide us with breakfast on the 2nd day.
A packed breakfast was provided for us on the first day when we went to see the sunrise at the volcano - which was fabulous!
We liked the location but the standard of accomodation was the lowest of any of the places we stayed in Hawaii and it was only about 10 dollars cheaper. We felt very let down that the breakfast we had paid for was unprovided and this was only communicated via a note. This was our 1st wedding anniversary night! Luckily the rest of Maui was fabulous - loved our stay in Lahaina.
