Make a vacation rental in Makawao, USA your home away from home

Things to do in Makawao, USA

Makawao vacation accommodation is set in an area that was long associated with Paniolos, or cowboys, and there are a number of remnants from this period to be seen around the town, including hitching posts dating to the 19th Century. As with much of the island, the town is considered an ideal destination for walking and other outdoor recreation. The Makawao State Forest for instance is a great place to go for mountain biking, with specially designated routes showcasing the beauty of the park. If you’re a golf fan then you’ll find yourself close to one of the best courses on the island, at the Pukalani Country Club. What make it especially appealing are its affordable green fees, as well as its spectacular landscapes, offering views of Mount Haleakala.

Haleakala can be reached from Makawao vacation rentals if you head a little further southeast. The volcano is preserved as part of the Haleakala National Park, and here you’ll experience a landscape that is different from any other on the planet. Much of the terrain cinder desert, which can be navigated via walking trails, but there is also shrubland, home to a wide variety of birdlife. At the volcano’s summit you’ll be able to see the crater, which is almost seven miles in diameter. Meanwhile on the coast you’ll have opportunities to take a whale watching or go snorkeling at one of a number of locations around the island.

Not only this we also need somewhere quiet & relaxing after long days on Maui's awasome beaches & seeing some of its stunnig countryside. The Cottage provided this and more. Surrounded by stunnig tropical garden plants that fill the air with a fragrance better than any perfume you'll ever buy,in a location that overlooks woodland, pineapple fields & Hookipa bay in the diatance,a breathtaking view as you sip coffee or juice in the morning, one you just have to see!!.The inside of the cottage wont disapoint either,buit in a traditional style with stunning wood floors & high vaulted ceilings, beautiful furniture & just about everything you have in your house Hank & Barbra have provided in the Cottage for your vacation, they realy have thought of everything. We were lucky enough to spend our time not just windsurfing & surfing but travelled the length & bredth of Maui discovering the island for ourselves places no tour would ever take you & also checked out a few of the so called exclusive places, hotels & acomadatoin on the south of the island (the ones you'll see in the brochure's) The Hookipa Bay View beats them all, here you'll have it all to yourself. Just spend a week or two & check this place out you'll be hooked for life. We'll be back for sure & it takes a day or more for us to travel there from the UK. Best Wishes Hank & Barbera Many thanks once again Vince & Christine
