Here’s where You'll find everything you ever wanted to know and probably more than you ever
wanted to know about THE UPCOUNTRY BED AND BREAKFAST.
This year the room rate is $150.00 a night, including all the taxes. We are restricted to two persons per room by the State Fire Code, their definition of a person goes something like this: Are they a Tax Deduction and/or do they have Social Security Number? If so, they qualify as people. They also have to be over 21 years old. For reservations made in 2012 and on we will again offer a 20% discount to kama'ainas with proof of residence and Active Duty Military. Submariners, Seals and other Special Forces Unit Members get another 10% off for their hazardous duty.
While this is a BED AND BREAKFAST it is also my home.
Please be considerate of that and of the other guests who are here while you visit. Upcountry is very quiet and we have a 9 PM curfew for loud noises outside due to the close proximity of our neighbors and how far voices travel late a night. No one told the roosters, of course. WE CAN NOT DO CHILDREN. We are not child-friendly/proof according to our insurance company and they will only allow us to accommodate adults- or as we call them "Kids over 21"

We do Not charge your card until you arrive or you don't show up without notice-see our cancellation policy.
You'll have much better luck E-mailing or Faxing the information to me than trying to catch me by phone.
WE DO NOT RECOMMEND DRIVING AROUND THE ISLAND WITH YOUR LUGGAGE IN YOUR CAR.
We are only 20 minutes from the airport so come up and drop off your bags before heading out and about. It'll save you an ugly trip to Wal-Mart. Every rental car now comes with a barcode sticker on one of its windows to help facilitate check-in and check-out. This is a dead giveaway that it's a rental car and easy prey.
I built the house too big. I'll admit it right here and now, I am never within range when the phone rings, if I hear it at all- too many "Who" concerts, probably! And especially, if I'm not in the house. Right now I am the only guy running the place so between taking reservations, answering E-mails, returning phone calls and getting rooms ready, finding fresh fruit for breakfast, picking up our fresh French pastries and about a million other things please don't be offended if you don't catch me. PLEASE Remember the sun comes up here last, so you can call after work but not before. Even some of the guys from NASA get it wrong. I try to return messages in the morning after the guests leave the house and again in the early evening but not after 6 p.m. here. There are too many area codes and too many time zones. And now since you get to take you phone number with you I have no idea where you are. So I may take a day to get back to you. Don't Panic. If you're booking rooms for a couple weeks or months in advance it shouldn't be a problem useless it's a Holiday of some sort. When you do leave your message please include in it the dates you are interested in and which rooms, and your phone number and go slow, if you're lucky they may be open. The absolutely best way to get me your credit card number is by E-mail, oh, stop cringing, 90% of our guest do it, either out of frustration at not being able to catch me by the phone or just convenience since they live on the other side of the planet. The numbers go onto the reservation slip and are deleted from the system immediately and the reservation slip is then shredded as soon as you arrive.
