Matt Anderson's Take

The Space

There are several amenities that make this property special, unique, and a great value!! Alongside the main bedroom with queen bed is a spacious second room with a sofa bed, which can be used as an office, dining area, yoga space, or even a second bedroom. The apartment also includes a full bathroom with tub and shower, a separate kitchenette with several appliances: refrigerator, toaster oven, microwave, two-burner hotplate, coffee maker, front loading washer/dryer. There's a private off-street parking spot. The outdoor hot tub and sun deck look out at a partial ocean view surrounded by mature fruit trees--Meyer lemons, Haas avocados, mango, cherimoya. The apartment has WiFi throughout, and the HDTV includes premium stations like HBO and Showtime.

We have space for guests to store bikes, surfboards and kite or windsurfing gear, as well as golf clubs.

Short driving distance to farmer's markets and several excellent restaurants. The neighborhood is quiet, and the accommodations are very comfortable and private. From a guest who returns to Kula Treat annually, "This listing gives a chance to visit Maui as a resident and not a tourist. Hiking, views and comfort are first class."

The apartment does have an iron and ironing board, and there is a hair dryer in the bathroom. The bed in the master bedroom is FIRM, but we've added a feather bed topper for extra comfort.The sofa bed, in the second room is soft. If you know you do not like a firm mattress, the sofa bed can be made up for you, but there is no TV in that room.

Another thing worth noting is that the kitchen sink is OUTSIDE. It comes complete with a counter and drying rack, soap and scrubbies, but it is just outside the kitchenette.

Also worth noting, although the driveway is relatively short, it is *steep*, and needs to be BACKED down. More often than not, the host is there to take your car down for you, and she is ALWAYS happy to provide that service - literally both day and night. There is another parking option where you can "front in", but it's about 100 yards from the apartment.

As you may have noticed, Kula Treat gets a lot of five star reviews, but we want to be clear that this apartment is not the Four Seasons. It’s “country living” up here in Kula. The kitchen sink is outside, and it’s more “utilitarian” than “elegant”. We offer lots of nice amenities, and keep the rates very affordable, especially for such a spacious apartment than can sleep up to four people. The five star reviews are from people who really appreciate the value, cleanliness and the care put into the apartment.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the host through the message center before booking. We sincerely want you to be happy at Kula Treat.

Guest Access

Guests have full access to the private apartment, outdoor hot tub, patio and outdoor furniture, fruit trees and one off-street parking spot (everything listed here is exclusively for the guests, including the hot tub). We have two beach chairs you are welcome to take to the beach and bring home.

Interaction with Guests

The guest apartment is in a separate part of the house, and the host is available if something is needed. The laundry room is shared with the host, with a schedule arranged so that privacy is maintained to guests' satisfaction.

The Neighborhood

Attractive residential neighborhood in quiet country setting. Although we don't actually see our neighbors' houses from our property, we are friendly with the neighbors on all sides. Wonderful, kind-hearted and creative people, full of aloha spirit.

Getting Around

There is a bus that comes within two miles of this property, but public transportation is not frequent in this area. A rental car is a "must".

Other Things to Note

50 minute drive to the top of Haleakala, 25 minute drive to the beach, close to great restaurants, locally grown farmers' markets, drugstore, super market, etc.

I'd like my guests to know that I donate a portion of every booking to the Pachamama Alliance, an organization that works with Ecuadorian native tribes to prevent the destruction of rainforests, and educate all people about how to be better stewards of our world.

I have stayed in Kula Treat four times. It is my favorite spot on the islands. I love the hiking and feeling of "real" Maui away from the touristy areas. I can visit them if I want but love driving back into the beautiful countryside after a full day. The view from this lovely apartment is not to be believed. Picture sunset over the ocean while soaking in the spacious hot tub while looking at an aerial view of most of the island. It's hard to imagine but once you've experienced, it will never leave you. Pamela is an unusual and wonderful hostess. She goes way out of her way to help her guests, is always pleasant and accessible but also allows total privacy. The apartment is clean and well appointed and Pamela makes sure the essentials are provided.

Staying at The Kula Treat was an absolute dream!!!! My fiancée and I are returning guest to this lovely accommodations due to its convenient location, quiet tranquil serenity feels, spacious indoor and outdoor living space, stunning views, fragrant Hawaiian flowers and fruit trees, on-site amenities and awesome host Pamela. There are lots of great restaurants, shops and café close by if you want to eat out or you can dine in your own kitchen and enjoy a glass of wine under the milky way of stars.

You are about 30 mins from the summit of Haleakala, the road to Hana starts right around the corner and every day was blessed with a beautiful sunset. If you do choose to stay at the Kula Treat, Pamela is by far one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She is very accommodating and really goes out of her way to ensure you have a pleasant stay. Thank you for sharing your Aloha with us, Pamela. Can’t wait to come back!
