This is a terrific place to stay in the upcountry side of Maui. Away from the icky tourist-ridden sides of cliche Hawaii, this b&b is in a little place called Kula, a very peaceful, beautiful place in the country. For a bona fide city girl who loves the hustle and bustle of an urban environment, the Upcountry B&B in Kula is country enough for a quiet getaway in a gorgeous and simple rural locale with sprawling pastures and beautiful views 360... yet with all the amenities of home (Wi-Fi, nice TV with all the channels, awesome bed and pillows, sink, cups, wine glasses, coffee maker, nearby shopping center -Starbucks, grocery store, Jamba Juice- etc.).
MIchael is a super host with terrific stories to share, what a character! He welcomes and makes you feel at home immediately. For breakfast, he provides a lovely fruit plate that includes bananas, pineapple, strawberries, and papaya, in addition to coffee or tea.
The view from the home as well as from your room patio is breathtaking: Haleakala with its summit peeking from the clouds, country pastures, ocean... Trust me, this is far better than the trite hotel's "ocean view" room. The sunset from your room is gorgeous! The temperature is also cooler up there -- for me in September, the mornings and evenings felt like a typical chilly fall day while the daytime felt like the springtime.
There's much to do in and around Kula. Michael's b&b is also a short drive to Haleakala and he also has warm clothes for you should you forget to bring them for your trip to the mountain.
I felt very much at home here. RECOMMEND!!!!!
