Kula Named Best Place to Escape to in Hawaii


January 12, 2018

According to a recent article by travel website Expedia, Kula is the best place in Hawaii to escape to. Inspired by all the busy chaos of the holidays, this article focused on places to go just to relax. Although there’s a lot of subjectivity to statements like these, a lot of us are bound to agree that the article was right on target with their description of Kula.

“An upcountry town on the island of Maui with sweeping views of both the island and the Pacific Ocean, Kula is a prime spot to help erase stress,” the article states. “Indulge in a tour, then taste the freshness of a farm-to-table organic lunch at Oʻo Farm. Breathe in soothing lavender aromas at Aliʻi Kula Lavender Farm, and then gaze upon the world from atop Haleakalā volcano a short drive away. Stroll through 8 acres of bliss at Kula Botanical Garden, taking in the array of colorful plants, rock formations, trees, and waterfalls.”

Okay, so one detail could be adjusted. The breathtaking summit of Haleakala is about an hour drive if you’re starting out in lower Kula, but this is a minor detail. It’s a good description of the place and some of its charming points of interest. This quiet Upcountry Maui town has earned the appreciation of many travelers in search of a soothing atmosphere, along with plenty of natural beauty. For some, a visit just isn’t enough. They fall in love with the area and choose to buy a home in Kula.

If you enjoy low housing density, magnificent bi-coastal views, and temperatures that are cooler than at sea level, it may be that this is your perfect Maui real estate location. You won’t find condos on these pastoral slopes, but you will find some gorgeous homes for sale in Kula. It’s the kind of place that can best be enjoyed by those who like few neighbors and plenty of land area to go with their living area.

Whether you’re looking for a place to settle down and raise a family, or retire, or try your hand at working the land with an agricultural project, Kula is full of delightful options. It’s a versatile area where you can find some closer-knit neighborhoods as well as homes with a rural location and agricultural zoning. If you browse Kula real estate listings, you’ll also find quite a spread in terms of prices, ranging from the modest to the luxurious.
