Upcountry Maui, Hawaii Location:

Baldwin beach, Maui, Hawaii, Maui vacation rental, Makawao,
Baldwin Beach, about a 15 minute drive…

We are just a 15 minute drive to the beauty of Baldwin beach, Paia town,(with the wonderful Mana market) and the convenience of Costco and the airport, and about 30-40 minutes to the South side beaches/restaurants of Kihei and Wailea. We’re 45-60 minutes from the attractions of Lahaina and Kapalua, including great snorkeling beaches, restaurants, etc. We are about 45-60 minutes from the top of Haleakala, the mountain that is named “house of the rising sun”, where both sunrise and sunsets are beyond magical.

Our home and rental cottage are at 1,500 feet above sea level, part-way up the mountain of Haleakala. It is about 5-10 degrees cooler here than sea level, making for very comfortable year round temperatures. It can be cool and rainy in winter months, but there’s almost always sun and warmth somewhere on the island!

We are away from most of the crowded tourist areas, but still close to all the beauty you can imagine on the gorgeous island of Maui.

Our neighborhood is generally quiet, but it is a residential area with children and dogs close by, etc…

Renting a car while here is recommended, so please inquire about renting our 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT hatchback! There is easy parking at our cottage. There is a bus system on Maui, but it is limited.
