The property is located on Maui island in the Kula district on the drier side of Haleakala. In days before western contact the area was heavily forested with native plants and trees and rainfall was abundant. The native Hawaiian grew bananas, taro and sweet potato.  After Western contact businessmen mostly from the United States developed huge tracts of land for ranching and farming which cleared the native forests and destroyed the eco system from the mountain to the sea. Many of the Hawaiian people moved away nearer to the towns and immigrant Chinese laborers from the ranches and plantations moved in. The Chinese brought in the Wattle tree to plant for firewood as these trees grew very fast. These are the majority of the trees that you see today. As part of the Chinese immigration, the founder of modern China, Sun Yat Sen lived here for a time and planned his revolution to overthrow the last Chinese Dynasty. There is a park dedicated to him nearby. We have picnic tables a propane grill, a fire pit and a covered gazebo that is shared with 3 cabins This site is located at the 2800 ft altitude and the temperature at night can range from mid 50 to mid 60 degrees F. If you are planning to go to Haleakala, we are about 45 -60 minutes to the summit. We are also on the south side approach to Hana. There is a great restaurant for breakfast and lunch about 10 minutes away in Keokea town called Grandma's Coffee house.

We enjoyed out stay here! Alika gave clear directions which made it very easy to find! The bathrooms and shower were great!!!! They worked well and they were clean! We enjoyed watching the sunset right by our camper. We stayed one night and left the next morning to go to Haleakala National Park to watch the sunrise. Great location if wanting to do that!

Mountain Cabin 1 of 3 in the Forest
A great glamping experience and spot! This space was thoroughly and lovingly thought through. The cabin has a keypad, so you and your things are safe. They have blackout curtains so you can actually sleep in. The shower is ingenious. I cannot express how wonderful it was to take a properly hot shower. They have mulitple blanket options to make sure you sleep cozy. There are motion detection lights, so you can see where you're going at night. The bathroom facilities are clean, have proper doors, locks and lighting. And they provide appropriate and clean garbage and recycling receptacles. I showed up early, and my hosts were so gracious about it. They were really helpful explaining the property, and gave me great advise about places to eat and things to do and see. I felt really comfortable and safe on this property because of their welcome and obvious love of their property, family and Maui.
