Kula is the best place on Maui to stay if you plan to spend your vacation exploring Haleakala, the largest dormant volcano on Earth. There is plenty to do and see here - hiking, biking, horseback riding, sunrise watching and more. At Haleakala National Park you will also see the silversword, a Hawaiian flower that grows nowhere else in the world. Located in upcountry Maui, Kula has a few unique vacation rentals where you can enjoy privacy in your tactfully decorated home, surrounded by tropical gardens and beautiful ocean and mountain views. If all Kula vacation rentals are already booked, you can find more in the nearby towns of Makawao and Paia.
