The SpaceThere 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 (URL HIDDEN) apartment also includes a full bathroom with tub and shower, a separate, recently upgraded kitchenette with several appliances: refrigerator, toaster oven, microwave, two-burner hotplate, coffee maker, front loading washer/dryer. Host offers guests the right to do one load of laundry per week, or SHE will do any amount of laundry you want for $5 a load, washed and dried. 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 there are TWO HDTVs - one in each room, one includes premium stations like HBO and Showtime, the other includes HBO Go and Netflix (via Apple TV)!
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."
Host would like to add: the apartment does have an iron and ironing board, and there is a hair dryer in the bathroom.
We'd also like to add something about the two beds. The bed in the master bedroom is firm, but weʻve added a 3" foam 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 a an extra charge for the second bed. In Winter months (January thru March), we add a feather bed to the sofa bed which makes it both more comfortable and warmer!
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 "valet" service - literally both day and night. There is another parking option where you can "front in", but itʻs about 100 yards from the apartment. Host will show you both options upon your arrival.
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. 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 easily. The host will consider more than 4 guests, and can provide an airbed for this exception, but there will need to be some communication about that during the inquiry process. 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 AccessGuests 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.
Because we have neighbors nearby, the outdoor area is not suitable as a play area for children. Although children are welcome here, we do need a level of quiet maintained - particularly outside. Interaction with GuestsThe guest apartment is in a separate part of the house, and the host is available if something is needed. The laundry area is right outside the kitchenette and is accessed by the host regularly. Although the host tends to leave guests to themselves, she may occasionally need to come into the kitchenette area for cleaning/laundry supplies. The NeighborhoodAttractive 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 AroundThere 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 NoteAirBnBʻs price structure is set up by the number of guests, not by the number of beds used. Generally speaking, a booking for two people means only the use of the master bedroom. If you are two people traveling together, but wish to have the second bed set up, thereʻs an additional fee of $20 a night that doesnʻt show up when you book for only two people. The host will mention this in the message thread and discuss options and possible discounts.
Itʻs a 50 minute drive to the summit 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.
