Upcountry Maui Rental

By |April 1st, 2011|Maui, Maui Real Estate, Maui Vacation Rentals, Saving Money|Comments Off on Upcountry Maui Rental

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! […]

Maui Mountain Biking

By |December 23rd, 2010|Maui, Maui Activities|Comments Off on Maui Mountain Biking

I didn’t bring my bike when I moved to Maui.  I didn’t think I would want it.  I’d never been to Hawaii before and everything I knew of the islands came from Jurassic Park and Lost.  I pictured beaches, beaches and impenetrable rain forest.  I knew there were mountains, but I thought they’d be so steep and covered in jungle that no one in their right mind would bike down them.  I figured I’d learn to surf, or kite board.  I wasn’t worried. After I’d been here for about six months I started to miss biking.  A lot.  Surfing was fun, but I wanted to go really fast for longer than a few seconds.  I wanted to brush elbows with trees, smell piney air and dust, and feel my body compress as I whipped around a berm.  I wanted to ride a bike. I went to some bike shops and asked around but everyone was really secretive.  I’d get vague answers about good trails somewhere on Haleakala, or redirected toward the road biking groups that met every Wednesday and needed more riders.  On this small island in the middle of the Pacific, nobody wanted to give up the goods.
