We made great memories when we visited Maui for the first time. When most tourists stay at a 5-star hotel in Lahaina, we decided to stay in a serene countryside. It was the best decision to stay here at Upcountry B&B. Michael was very helpful in suggesting the best places to go & less $$ way to go. A 2-story home with huge rooms & private lanais. The bathroom is also huge (Black & White room) with a double sink & closet. Although the shower pressure was weak, we got used to it. We decided to take the Road to Hana early in the morning. Michael packed up our breakfast & even packed up his coffee mugs & containers so we can take some food with us. I love how thoughtful he was that we needed travel mugs, coffee, etc & volunteered he'd send it this way rather than allowing us to skip breakfast. There was no stops for breakfast after we left Kula. He also suggested starting south going east, then up north to Hana and we surprisingly arrived in Hana in 2 hrs!!! Michael knows the area so well and knows what's best for traveling. We left Kula at 6:30 am & ended up stopping by a cliff overlooking the ocean and had breakfast there while watching the gorgeous sunrise!! On our way back, we went against traffic. Going back we drove on one lane roads. It slowed us down but even with that, we were able to stop At Mama's Fish House around noon and got back to B&B around 3pm. We stopped at a lot of beaches & views and still got home early enough. So glad we took his advice. We were also able to get discounts for certain events like Luau, dinner cruise through a company that Michael suggested. Every event we wanted to attend was around $100 each but we were able to save with what the company offered. His dog is so adorable & friendly. I miss him already!! Will def come back here. Nearby town, Lahaina is a one hr relaxed drive with beautiful views. We were able to explore both the country & urban side of Maui just by staying here. We were here for 5 days & we never got tired of the hr drive going & back. It's so totally worth it!!!
I love this place. We had stayed here twice 3 years ago and 5 nights this time. We love to hike in Haleakala. This is the perfect place for us, get used to the altitude and cool air, and the destination is closer. Gabby and Michael are the best hosts. Breakfast is awesome, usually fresh pulpy OJ, with a lot of fresh fruits and 3 cups of coffee for me, and sticky bun (we save it for later treat). Cynthia's review says it all. If you are planning a Haleakala sunrise, let the host know the night before. Tips and recommencations around the area is found in the room. The host is very knowlegable in many areas. Nice DVD collections.
Very nice place in Kula. The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated, and very clean. The view from our balcony was amazing. Michael has got it all down to a science - breakfast in the morning, he'll prepare something to go if you plan to get up early for the sunrise on Haleakala, the hot tub, DVDs to watch in your room or downstairs if you're tired after a day of hiking, etc, etc. If we're every back around this way, we'll stay here again for sure. Gabby may be the sweetest dog I've meet.

Un-reliable. Website states: "La Provence is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner Wednesday through Sunday, from 7:00 AM to 9:00 PM." . LIE. Don't show up during lunch with family expecting to get a veggie sandwich if you're vegetarian, because their website is in-correct. Apparently they don't serve lunch at 1pm on a Saturday. And they are far from accommodating. Soy milk for coffee? Nope. Fruit salad or anything? Nope. I have no problem with places not accommodating vegetarians etc. But DON'T advertise one thing on your website, and do the complete opposite. Thanks for ruining our family day, La Provence. Change your website so people aren't mis-lead.
Having read all the bad reviews (except for the food), a group of us decided to see for ourselves. To our delight, the service was excellent, granted we were the only customers at the time, no flies, no rodents, no angry words heard as we had read about. We were immediately seated and the server was very attentive and professional. He had a French (?) accent and was so handsome, and he was the only good view we enjoyed. Oh, la la. "The breathtaking view" that was marveled about does not exist, but it didn't matter. So far so good. The food-0MG. We were not disappointed! The roast beef sandwich with au jus is out of this world. Crispy crust french bread with the tender and juicy roast beef is anyone's dream. Just as awesome is the cherry turnover -- crisp on the outside with a soft- like- butter center. The amount of cherries is just enough, not too overwhelming or too sweet. With the coffee, it was heavenly. My friends had the crepes for lunch and chocolate crepes for dessert. They enjoyed everything. The chocolate is made from scratch. Rate this a 5 plus. I had the chocolate crepes at Cafe des Amis in Paia long ago and they used Nutella. Rate that a 1. Never went back. Can't wait to go back to La Provence sooner than later!
I love going to La Provence for lunch whenever I go to Maui and adore the veggie crepe. I haven't really tried anything else because it is SO delish. The almond tart is to die for. I don't want to tell anyone this because whenever I'm up there, they are SOLD OUT of this!! C'est incroyable!!! Ambiance is quasi French.
