UpCountry Maui is a MUST SEE

Some of the BEST EATS ON MAUI are in  Paia, Haili'imaile, Makawao and Keokea. Sometimes the smaller, out of the way places are the best, like Grandma's Coffee House, try the Breakfast Bagel, so yummy and Sunday's have amazing Crab Benedict, sit outside and listen to great music.

After spending time at the beach come UpCountry and check out our domestic and wild animals. You may not have known we have deer on Maui. Jackson Chameleons (top left corner) move slowly and have amazing camouflage skills so you may have a hard time finding one. 

From Paia take Baldwin Ave up to Makawao and see some beautiful stone churches, then on to Kula to see the Holy Ghost Church, it is beautiful inside and the Bi-Coastal view "ain't" too bad either.

UpCountry has so much to offer if you are willing to get out and explore. It's worth it!

While Driving Around the Island We Recommend:

The easily installed GyPSy Guide plays audio commentary thru your vehicles AUX  stereo or an external speaker. As you drive thru an area of interest, the devise Automatically plays. The commentary starts and stops itself and uses  satellites to know where you are.   
You may choose 3, 5 or 7 day rentals -

BOOK NOW ~ Coming into Peak Season

Peak Season Mid-December - Mid-March; Late May - August
Peak season for Maui travel is defined as mid-December through mid-March when Maui weather is balmy and warm, hotel rates are at their highest and airfare is astronomical. Discounts on Maui vacations typically vanish during this season, so if you are on a budget this may not be the best time to visit Maui. Begin to finalize arrangements in early fall, especially for large families requiring spacious accommodations, mini-vans and the like. Expect families to flood the beaches during the holidays and snowbirds to light at this time as well. Leave the overcoats and mittens at home and be sure to pack sunscreen, bathing suit, flip-flops and credit cards.

Ka'anapali is Maui, Hawaii's ideal beach, with soft white sand, pastel skies, stunning sunsets, and a deep blue ocean with the islands of Lana'i and Moloka'i off in the distance.

Astonishing volcano craters can be examined at the Haleakala National Park in Maui, Hawaii.
