Beautiful upslope house
The rental is the downstairs part of a beautiful house on lovely grounds, nicely furnished and generally very pleasant. The hosts were very welcoming and really made us feel at home. The location, in Kula, is gorgeous. Kula isn't the best base if you're planning a beach-centered vacation, as there's no direct route from Kula to the south coast. However, being up here cuts off some relatively uninteresting chunks of the drives to Hana and Haleakala, compared to West and South Maui, which is nice. There didn't seem to be many restaurants nearby and the cooking facilities are minimal. Worth it if you enjoy sunset picnics on the lanai, though. The only real issue I'd bring up is that the downstairs part of the house doesn't feel very private, so maybe take that into account if you like to walk around naked, or whatever.
