Upcountry Kula Estate, Pili Lani (Close to Heaven)

Amid fruit, macadamia nut and avocado orchards, Kula Upcountry Estate is a lush 17-acre inland compound tucked away in central Maui’s mountains. Ideal for weddings and company retreats, the secluded estate has lush tropical gardens, sweeping lawns and tiered decks that face the setting sun. A dining gazebo and furnished lanais lead down to a family-sized landscaped pool, which has a thatch-roofed Balinese-style daybed, and there's even a whimsical life-size chess board.

Inside, the open floor plan easily accommodates a crowd, with ample spaces, accented by Southeast Asian furnishings and elegant teak fixtures. The light-filled living room has a bar and there's a separate media room for movie nights. The huge, fully equipped kitchen has a casual dining area, but for more formal occasions, there's a separate dining room, which seats 10 and opens onto the deck.

Of the villa’s nine bedrooms and eight-and-two-half baths, the master is the true standout. Set on the upper level, separate from the rest of the bedrooms, the suite has a large seating area and separate office, spa-size bathroom and his-and-hers walk-in closets. The best feature, though, is the private lanai with a firepit.

      This property is beautiful, wonderfully designed and large enough to accommodate bigger groups. My sister had her wedding here in February 2010. The families stayed in the main house and the friends stayed in the guest house just down the driveway. There is plenty of space for people to congregate or keep their privacy depending on what they want to do. There was a breath-taking wine cellar downstairs. I took advantage of the sauna in the mini-gym area. I loved it. It was very clean, seemed virtually unused. The entire house seemed untouched. It was in really great condition. We were all very impressed with the house and adjoining property. It seemed like everyday someone was discovering a new amenity. We realized the living rooms walls collapse to create a virtual patio out of the entire living room. It was absolutely brilliant. The property overlooks two shorelines and a mountain top. It's awe-inspiring. The amenities abound. I simply didn't have enough time to take advantage of everything: the tennis courts, the volleyball, the chess board. There is a gorgeous pool with a thatched hut covering a mattress on the deck for maximum mid-day relaxation. So make a list of what you want to do while you're there and stay vigilant. There is simply too much relaxing to do! Some of the smaller touches I appreciated were the L'Occitane products. I love, love, love L'Occitane. Also, the towels and bedding were all impeccably clean. In fact, the linens smelled so good I wanted to make a point to ask what detergent they used. It smelled amazing. This was truly a perfect site for our purposes and everyone in our group really enjoyed the house. This was a real find.

      The most amazing experience

      This place is like none other that I have stayed at in all my travels. Luxurious , sophisticated, tasteful. The earthy surroundings and natural finishes complemented each other beautifully. The estate is amazing with clay tennis courts, large pool , golf cart to move around the 17 acres to gather fruits from the trees. We went with two families and we didnt want to leave . The views are unparalled. We also stayed at another of their properties and it was stunning too. Will definitely come back as often as we can! Simply amazing and if you get the chance make this your trip of a lifetime.

      Most beautiful home in Maui!

      We were absolutely amazed at the beauty, quality and serenity we found at the Kula estate. The photos really do not is THAT gorgeous! This property is hands down the most picturesque we've ever stayed at. We frequently travel to Hawaii, but this home and its amenities made our most recent stay the best ever. The views are magical and the home has so much to offer! The pool, hot tub, tennis court and volleyball court give you plenty to do outside. It has been designed with the perfect blend of island style and modern comfort. The art is stunning, and the house was stocked with everything you might find at a hotel. It was very clean and well maintained. I wish I had known about this home when we planned our wedding! It would be the perfect setting. You are only a short drive to some of the most beautiful beaches and quaint towns that Maui has to offer. If you are planning to go with a larger group, this home has plenty of space and privacy as it is 3 floors with bedrooms on each. I highly recommend this property!
