890 Upper Kimo Dr, Kula Maui HI 96790

This delightful 2 story home with a loft is so charming and cute you’re going to fall in love with it at first sight.  It’s a 2-story 1,100 square foot home with a large master suite, a loft, and 1.5 bathrooms. 

Behind the rock wall and gated entry, and up the winding driveway, you’ll find a hidden retreat where life can be a little slower and quieter.

Kula living is cooler living.  You’ll love getting the old fashioned wood stove fired up in the winter to take off the chill.  Enjoy brisk nights gazing at the stars above Haleakala Crater.  The temperate climate is perfect for growing fruits like peaches and plums, along with tropical favorites.  Fragrant blossoms scent the air as you stroll through the beautiful gardens.

This lovingly crafted small home has so much appeal, from the cedar shake roof to the climbing wisteria vines on the lanai.  A lot of attention to detail in the construction means you have a solid and strong house here.  Some classic old paned windows have been incorporated, to frame the lovely views.  Old fashioned features bring back a feeling of a simpler time.

Upstairs is the main area, with a simple kitchen that flows nicely into the dining and living room.  A wood-burning stove stands ready to throw some heat, and a fan system circulates warm air throughout the house.  The open raftered wood ceiling mirrors the maple wood floors and oozes warmth.  A laundry room and pantry are just off the kitchen, leading to a half bathroom.

Climb up the wooden ladder to the carpeted loft which could be used for many things.

Downstairs is all about the master suite, with a full bathroom, and big walk-in closet.  Sink your toes into the plush carpet and get comfortably tucked away here.  French doors lead out to the wrap around covered lanai which feels very private being surrounded with views of the gardens and a small fountain/pond.

The gardens are delightful.  Strong rock walls are a recent upgrade lining the front of the property and the driveway to the house.  An array of colorful succulents and flowering ground covers brightens the drive all the way up.  On the hilltop is a lovely flower and fruit garden featuring scented trees and seasonal bursts of color, with a little garden shed overlooking it all.  Truly a gardener’s favorite place!
