About the property

1 Bedroom/1 Bath, Full Kitchen & Living Room With Private Entrance

G & Z Upcountry Bed & Breakfast Cottage, situated on half an acre in Kula Maui is adjacent to the hosts' 6 acre farm, was completely renovated in 2015 and beautifully appointed.

A large jacaranda and two avocado trees shade the wide open lawn. At an elevation of around 3,000 feet, guests welcome the day as the sun rises over Haleakala and watch the sun set in the ocean or behind Mauna Kahalawai (West Maui Mountains). Guests might even see the green flash when it sets in the ocean.

G & Z offers a rural tropical atmosphere and its convenient location makes it easy to access all that Upcountry and Maui has to offer. It's a place to relax and 'get away from it all,' yet still be within an easy drive to beaches and surf spots.

There are five restaurants just 5 minutes away and another 10 within a 15 minute drive. Kula Country Farm, a two minute walk away, sells local produce and homemade Upcountry products and has the best Halloween pumpkin patch and fun activities for the keiki (kids).

G & Z has on-site free parking and a private entrance. The fully equipped kitchen has a full size range and refrigerator. The dining table can seat 4 comfortably. The bedroom has a King Size bed and the living room has a Queen Size sofa bed. The bathroom has a large walk-in shower. There are two flat screen HDTV with satellite DirecTV service and free wireless internet accessibility. A large shared deck has a BBQ grill and is a perfect place for outdoor dining.

The B & B Suite can accommodate 2 adults and 1 child that is over the age of 5 years old.

On those cool winter evenings, guests will enjoy the warmth of the electric fireplace that comfortably heats the cottage and creates a cozy atmosphere.

G & Z Upcountry is a Bed & Breakfast and your hosts will provide your cottage with seasonal fruit and scones or breakfast breads, coffee and tea daily. The kitchen has a full size refrigerator, stove, coffee pot and toaster/oven which enable guests to enjoy breakfast at their leisure.

For guests that would enjoy an agritourism experience, G & Z hosts are happy to share their farm where they grow avocados, lemons, limes, pomegranites, pears, figs and coffee. Although the trees are young they are already harvesting avocados and lemons.

Guests that would like to experience planting will be encouraged. Progress photos will be sent to the guests as their plant(s) mature.

G & Z Upcountry looks forward to welcoming you to their B & B cottage. When you stay with G & Z you'll be within minutes of everything Maui has to offer.

G & Z Upcountry Bed & Breakfast does not allow smoking in doors. Accommodations can be made for smoking out-of-doors.

About Marsha

Your hosts have lived in Hawaii for over 40 years and have always called Kula home. Recently retired, Marsha and John are enjoying their farm and family and look forward to sharing their knowledge about Maui with their guests.

Marsha spent over 30 years in Hawaii and Maui's tourism and hospitality industry and loves to 'talk story' with visitors about the islands and especially Maui.

Jeanne The Bread Lady (their sister) has a commercial kitchen on the property where she makes the most delicious scones and breads. Guests will be able to enjoy many of her products while at G & Z Upcountry.

Why Marsha chose Kula

G & Z Upcountry Bed & Breakfast Cottage is centrally located to everything upcountry has to offer. Its rural country location is laid back and relaxed. It's far enough away from the resort areas to be peaceful but close enough to be able to enjoy all that the resorts have to offer.

Guests will love waking up to the sunrise over Haleakala and enjoy the views of the ocean, South Maui and the West Maui Mountains (Mauna Kahalawai).

Friends and family that visit Kula report that the unique ambiance, lifestyle and views are truly something that everyone will enjoy.

This was the perfect property. The area is just what you expect Hawaii to be, relaxing and beautiful. The pastries were delicious. We will definitely stay here again if we have the opportunity. Thank you John and Marsha.

G and Z B & B is an absolutely gorgeous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Exceptionally clean little cottage home. John and Marsha are spectacular hosts. The cottage is quiet, peaceful with everything you need for a relaxing get away. The daily baked goods and stocked fridge are an exceptional bonus. We are sold on staying up country when we come. Our daughter lives in Pukalani, so this was a perfect destination for our Thanksgiving vacation.

Cosy retreat in Upcountry Maui

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week's stay at G and Z. The apartment is well thought out and Marsha and John's attention to detail left nothing to be desired. The breakfast fruit, yogurt and delicious pastries were always fresh and plentyful and we were able to enjoy them at our own schedule. We also loved the avocados and lemons grown right on the property. The view from our lanai of the pastoral slopes of Haleakala were heavenly and tanquil, far from the bustlng crowds of the beaches and we really got a sense of the 'real' Maui. Needless to say, we are already looking forward to our return next year.

We were very comfortable and everything we needed and more was provided . We had beach towels, a flashlight we used when we went up Heleakala at night, plenty of informational pamphlets, a cooler and a fully equipped kitchen. Fruit and breakfast breads arrived every day. Marsha and John were also very helpful. We had an avocado tree right outside our deck and plenty of lemon trees. There is road noise but we just left windows open before we went to bed to cool the place down and then we closed the bedroom window and it was very quiet. We shopped at Foodland in Pukalani on our way up from the airport and would suggest doing that although it is easy to get fruit and vegetables upcountry.

Comfort and hospitality

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent three nights at this property and really enjoyed it. The property was very beautiful and the b&b itself was very clean and cozy. The bed was so comfortable! I was sick during one of the days while we were there and it was the perfect place to relax and recover. Marsha and John were very hospitable and accommodating and brought the most delicious scones, croissants, muffins and fruit to us. We went to Haleakala to watch the sunrise one morning and they even supplied us with blankets to bring up since it gets so cold. (And it’s a great location if you’re heading up to Haleakala really early!) There are lots of fun things to explore in the area, like Haleakala, the lavender farm, Thompson Road, the drive to Ulupalakua and the Ulupalakua ranch store (delicious burgers). Overall we found this rental to be very comfortable and relaxing and a nice cool break from the heat of the beach. It was a great place to stay and a great opportunity to experience something different for a few days during our stay on Maui.
