where to stay in Kula, Hawaii

We're making our first trip to Maui in June and would like to spend several nights in the Kula area to be close to the volcano. We're trying to find a close-by place to stay, moderately priced with decent reviews. Any suggestions?

My suggestion is to stay in Kehei or Wailea and drive to the volcano. There really aren't any great places to stay although there may be some B&B's. Kula is a small town/city and is known for it's vegetation and flowers growing. The reason for this is the weather is usually cooler and more rainy on that area.

You might check out Kula Lodge: www.kulalodge.com/chalets.htm

We've never stayed there, but we always stop for lunch or breakfast on the way up or down Haleakala.

We are planning on visiting that area end of May. Did you say at the Lodge ? How far is the drive to the mountain ?

From Kula Lodge to the summit is less than 25 miles, so its about an hour maybe an hour and a quarter.

We are renting a house called "Keli's Guest House" when we go in June. It's in Keokea. Check out the website.

Keli's website does not show any Bed and Breakfast License number or a Vacation Rental License number.

If you are contacting them I would ask them for their number.

Kula Lodge has amazing views and a great restaurant.

It is past the turnoff to drive up to the summit. The website has a contact e-mail for the proprietor and she is responsive.

Kula lodge is probably about as close as you get to the summit -- once you turn off it's a long drive up the mountain.

it is a BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL place -- beautiful sunsets from there! I stay with friends just up the road and love the view and the cooler temps.

Hope you have a fabulous time!
