One thing that very few visitors to Maui can do is decide to escape the heat when they want to (other than with A/C.) We recommend, especially in the summer, renting a vacation rental Upcountry. This area is only around 10 miles from the beach, but it’s at a higher elevation. This allows for great views as well as a cooler climate.
Play all day at the beach, then retire to the quiet and cool of Upcountry Maui at the Kula Cottage.
This Maui property is no longer for rent. SORRY!
The Kula Kottage is a 2 bedroom 1 bath private vacation rental with 180 degree views of Maui. Watch the sunset over the ocean from your lanai!
Ask them about bike tours and bike rentals. If you book the cottage and do a bike ride from Haleakala, you can keep the bikes for the rest of your stay! It’s a great deal because Kula and Makawao are really fun areas to bike around.
