Holiday Rental House
Step back in time... to the early Nineteen-hundreds 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 Nineteen-sixteen/seventeen 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.

An eighty-five foot screened lanai provides a beautiful view of West Maui and “down-county.” Kilohana boasts a variety of more than fifty trees, shrubs and plants many of which were planted by von Tempski, his daughters, and our family. In keeping with Kilohana’s 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 forty-eight fruit trees; primarily citrus, but avocados and bananas will be found. They are there to be enjoyed by our family, friends and “guests.” HOUSE RULES: Aloha! We are delighted that you are considering this property for your vacation lodging.

We were incredibly lucky to stumble on this house with a last minute reservation, after our Big Island plans went up with the volcano. Makawao is a town with plenty of local action and enough interesting shops and restaurants nearby to appeal to tourists. It's...More

Aloha Christine. I'm so happy you enjoyed and appreciated Kilohana. There is something so special about that property with the feeling of space indoors and out. Thank you for taking care of the home. We'd love to have you return. Cathy

This was our first trip to Maui and we were so happy we stayed in an upcountry home rather than a resort-area condo. The towns of Makawao and Paia are true locals towns, with no chain stores, maybe one stoplight and great shopping and food...More

About the neighbourhood
The closest thing to an urban center in Upcountry is Makawao. 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.
Getting around
A rental car is highly recommended. Kilohana is in the rural area of Makawao and from here, you'll want to head out to explore in a different direction every day. To follow your desire to see what Maui has to offer, you'll need a car to get there.
