Makawao Private Home Rental Description

Step back in time... to the early 1900's and explore Maui from the homestead of the first manager of Haleakala Ranch! This is a very unique vacation rental in Upcountry Maui. Kilohana was designed and built in 1916-1917 by the Haleakala Cattle Ranch as a retirement home for its first Ranch Manager, Louis von Tempski.
In the Kama'aina tradition, we continue to make every effort to make Kilohana a welcoming, comfortable, safe and healthy home for our family and others. Kilohana retains its kamaaina flavor with a large ranch kitchen, living room and dining room (with koa wood dining table & furniture).
The master bedroom enjoys a large koa wood bed from the missionary era. An 85 foot screened lanai provides a beautiful view of West Maui and down-county. Kilohana boasts a variety of more than 50 trees, shrubs and plants many of which were planted by von Tempski, his daughters, and our family. In keeping with Kilohanas agricultural heritage, it is surrounded by pasture land and friendly animals can be seen just beyond the fence. The property is planted with more than 48 fruit trees; primarily citrus, but avocados and bananas will be found. They are there to be enjoyed by our family, friends and guests.
Kilohana is located in Makawao, the closest thing to an urban center in Upcountry. Today Makawao is a lively community of cowboys and hippies, with galleries, boutiques, and restaurants. In the renovated stores, you'll find everything from a general store and an old-fashioned barbershop to health food, holistic medicine, and designer fashions. You can buy feed for your horse or gourmet olive oil for your kitchen, a bowl of saimin or fettuccini with porcini mushrooms. The town is a paradox of old paniolo and new age, pickup trucks and BMW's. That's what makes Makawao special - the old welcoming the new in the true Upcountry spirit.
And all of this is just a mile down the hill from Kilohana. Forgot the bottle of wine for dinner? No problem... run down to Rodeo General Store in Makawao. Looking for fresh Local pastries.... nothing better than Komoda's Store, a local tradition!
And a few miles down the hill: Haliimaile General Store, one of the best restaurants on Maui!
