Kula Jasmine, with its view overlooking Maui, has been the home and art studio of world-renowned artist Curtis Wilson Cost since 1984. The home is secluded on 5 acres of pastoral land yet close to all that Maui has to offer. Located at 3,300 ft. on the slopes of Haleakala it has been the setting for many of Mr. Cost’s original paintings.
The Cost’s welcome guests through a gorgeous garden entry into their own private and tranquil area of the art studio. This is a real upcountry experience.
Jasmine Studio is the downstairs of the main house and is completely private with its own separate entrance, a secret garden overlooking a panoramic view and separate secure parking area on the premises. It also has its own bathroom, kitchenette, and additional hot outside shower. No key is necessary as you will be given your own personal passcode. Our studio is for 1 to 2 non-smoking adults that are looking for tranquility. Those wanting to party will want to find another location as the owners value the peace and quiet. We offer a private studio in a pastoral setting unlike a hotel. One of the biggest differences is that Upcountry Maui is usually cooler than sea level. It is the perfect gateway location to numerous Upcountry Maui adventures. Horse backing riding, sunrises and sunsets on Haleakala, hip Paia town and beaches 35 minutes drive, wine tasting in Ulupalakua and the shortest distance for exploring the magic of Kipahulu and Hana. We are just far enough away from the city lights that it is the perfect place for stargazing.

I have lived in the Islands since 1960. My husband and I met on Oahu. We moved to Maui in 1973 where he began his art career. In 1984 we opened The Curtis Wilson Cost Gallery at the Kula Lodge. It is now the longest running one-man gallery in the State of Hawaii.
We love to travel and stay at Airbnb's. These experiences have laid the foundation for our Kula Jasmine Studio. We wished to offer an authentic Upcountry Maui alternative to the hotel option. There are so many wonderful things to do on the slopes of Haleakala and we enjoy sharing Maui with our guests.
