We are located in lush, cool upcountry Haiku, Maui, where serene Hawaii can still be found. Pilialoha is on a two acre property with half-century old eucalyptus trees and a rose and flower garden. We are near the cowboy and artist town of Makawao, very convenient to Haleakala National Park, road to Hana and the world famous windsurfing beach of Hookipa, and 25 minutes from Kahului Airport -- Maui's main airport. Pilialoha serves as a good central base for exploring the whole island. We are at the elevation of 1300 feet on the slope of Haleakala. We, Machiko and Bill, as owners/innkeepers, reside on the same property and are available for assistance and information.


The living room has a satellite Dish TV, DVD player, CD/iPod docking player with a collection of movies and CDs. Also provided are beach chairs/towels/mats, picnic coolers and coffee thermos, as well as numerous reference books covering topics such as Hawaiiana, Maui, hiking trails, guides to Haleakala National Park and the road to Hana, tropical flowers and fish. Free WiFi and laundry facility included.

The cottage has a fully-equipped kitchen.

An assortment of exotic coffees and teas are provided for you to enjoy anytime during your stay. Complimentary fresh fruits, juice and some cereals are placed in the kitchen on your arrival day.


Area Activities

Haleakala National Park
The summit (elevation 10,023 feet) of Haleakala National Park is about 45 minutes from Pilialoha. The sunrise at the summit is very popular for early risers. There are many interesting hiking trails to view the world's largest dormant volcano and to take a closer look at plants and birds found only at this elevation in Hawaii. For Sunrise, add another 30 minutes due to heavier visitor traffic.
Scenic drive to Hana
It takes about 1 hour and 45 minutes to drive the 35 miles to Hana Town. But you will want to stop often to view the scenic lookouts, waterfalls and even hike the arboretum along the way. Plan to spend the whole day for this adventure.
Makawao Town
This town is just a short jog away (less than 2 miles). It features very good restaurants, boutiques, galleries and local grocers, and a Farmers' Market.

Reviews and Comments

"For a delightful stay in the countryside, this is as good as it gets." -- Lonely Planet Hawaii Guide

"Impeccable guest cottage -- serenely appointed in white and soft green. But it's the attention to detail that really sets Pilialoha apart." -- Frommer's Bed and Breakfasts in Hawaii

"We can't imagine coming to Maui and staying anywhere else." -- A.L. & T.M., El Cerrito, CA -- Follow the Reader, San Francisco Examiner/Chronicle

"This is easily the nicest B & B we have ever stayed in --- and we have stayed in hundreds all over Britain, Europe and America." -- Mr. & Mrs. B. R., Cambridge, England

"It's so pristine, so comfortable with so many small details you don't expect. It's so tempting to forego the rest of Maui's splendor and simply settle in for some quiet relaxation." -- D.W. & R.B., Princeton, NJ

"A fine balance between providing caring attention and leaving us to privacy was gracefully managed." -- R.G. & P.M., San Diego, CA
