About this listing
Spacious, elegant, comfortable bedroom in a beautiful up-country home. A quiet, private place to land and depart from for your Maui adventures. Mostly looking for guests who just want a really nice place to sleep. Coffee and tea provided :-)
This is a spacious bedroom in a beautiful up-country home. Comfy queen size bed, lots of room to stretch out. Wifi, plus HDTV with NetFlix and HBO GO. We're calling it a "crash pad", because we're only looking for guests who come in after dinner, only need a place to sleep, clean up, and head out early the next day for Maui Adventures. The host works at home and is here most of the time and needs her living/working area to be uninterrupted from at least 9am-5:30pm each day.
Please note - we have a very friendly, indoor only cat. You can certainly close off your bedroom door, but there will be a cat in the rest of the house.
We ask a very small cleaning fee ($15) to cover utilities, no security deposit, and we do accept one night stays. In exchange, we ask that you honor the "crash pad" style of living and not hang out in the host's general living quarters or use the kitchen for more than making some coffee or tea in the morning. Worth noting: there is one full flight of stairs from the parking area to the bedroom area. If you canʻt carry your luggage up a flight of stairs, this might not be the right listing for you. We ask that you read ALL the details in this section to make sure this listing is right for you.
Guests will have access to the bathroom and kitchen, but we prefer you keep your kitchen activities to a minimum. Our ideal guests donʻt need to cook here, and need only a small space to store anything in the fridge. We provide a coffee maker with filters and some nice coffee as well as organic green tea. This is a non-dairy household, so we provide almond milk, but you'll have to bring your own "real" milk/cream. Thereʻs a lovely deck youʻre welcome to use when the weather supports it.
Host shares the bathroom, and won't hog it, and will appreciate you being considerate in that same regard.
Also, we very much appreciate you waiting till you go outside before applying perfume, cologne or even a scented after shave. Sensitive noses live here, and those scents tend to linger in the house for hours. Thank you for your consideration in this regard.
Interaction with guests
Pamela is an experienced "Super Host" and will want to make sure you are comfortable and have everything you need for a perfect stay. But she works at home and won't have time for lengthy interaction with guests. That's why we're calling this a "crash pad". It's a place for you to come and crash at the end of the day, shower, sleep in comfort and quiet, but not a whole house share. Thank you for respecting that.
Other things to note
Some of our guests arrive late and/or leave early. We simply ask that you be consciously quiet both inside and outside the house from 9pm to 7am. Mahalo!
If you leaving for sunrise at the summit of Haleakalā, Pamela might ask that you park on the street to give a little relief to our neighbors whose bedrooms are close to our driveway. This is something we can discuss upon your arrival. The street is VERY quiet, safe, with very little traffic.
Also worthy of note - the cat box for our adorable cat lives in the shower. We use pine pellets for litter, so the cat box is not at all smelly. But it does have to be removed when you take a shower. Pamela will be willing to do this for you if she's home. But if you take a shower when Pamela is not home, you'll have to remove the cat box and then put it back when you're done showering.
And one last thing, sorry for being so long winded, but AirBnB has asked me to mention this next thing, because it does come up occasionally. The listed price for this room is for one or two people *sleeping in the same bed*. I DO have an airbed I can set up for people who would like to sleep separately, but there is an extra charge. The charge shows up automatically if the listing is for three or more people, but it does not show up if itʻs only two people, and yet you want the extra bed set up. I can add this charge ($20) as a "special offer", so just let me know if itʻs something you want upon booking inquiry. Thereʻs NO extra charge for two people sleeping in the queen size master bed.
Pamelaʻs house is a fully licensed BnB.
#1 House Rule: DO NOT LET THE CAT OUT!!!
We have an adorable Siamese/Burmese blend cat. He's incredibly social and will love you if you want to be loved, and leave you alone if you're not a cat person. But he is INDOOR ONLY. Please be very conscious when going in and out of ANY door in the house - ie, front door, or any door to the deck or carport.
We also not only ask for no smoking, we ask that you not book this listing if you are a smokER. We've had uncomfortable experiences with cigarette odor in our home. Please respect this request and don't book if you're a smoker. Thank you.
All the other house rules are about bathroom behavior - as stated earlier, please wait till you go outside to apply perfume, cologne or even aftershave.
Host will appreciate you drying off IN the shower so you donʻt drip all over the bathroom rug, hang your wet towels in the bathroom, not the bedroom, and wipe splashed water off the counter top. Lastly, the bathroom door needs to be left OPEN when youʻre not in that room, so both Pamela and HoneyBoy know when the bathroom is available for their use. Mahalo!

Iʻm a professional musician and voice teacher. I live on Maui because I love the beauty, the quiet, the ocean and all its creatures. Iʻm blessed with good health, and great friends and a truly beautiful home.
I've been deeply involved with Hawaiian culture for the last 20+ years, studying the language, music, crafts and hula.
I also teach ‘ukulele, and some of my guests have taken lessons with me while staying at Kula Treat.
I love hosting travelers because I think my home, and the area where I live, give visitors a true sense of what itʻs like to live on Maui - away from the touristy areas. My style of hosting is to show my guests everything they'll need, (how to use the tv or hot tub, for instance, where coffee and teas are stored, etc.), and then leave them to their privacy. At the same time, I'm generally available for questions or anything my guests might need for their comfort, if it's not already presented.
Come experience Maui with Kula Treat as your home base.
E komo mai! (Welcome!)
ps Iʻm very pleased to announce that I am now officially permitted by Maui County to have a "BnB", and any reservation you make at my listing(s) will be legal and secure. Woo hoo!!
