  • Expansive views, relaxing retreat!

    "We loved this place! Only a few miles east of Paia, we expected it to be far from everything. But we found it very easy to get started onto the Road to Hana early, ahead of the crowds. Grocery stores are easily accessible in the town of Haiku, Makawoa and Pa'ia (Mana Foods!!). The north-facing, sweeping lawn slopes downward, allowing a lovely view of fruit trees and other lush green foliage, and the brilliantly blue ocean. We never tired of the views. Maui Ocean Breezes became a retreat for us. At dawn, I used the yoga hut for sunrise meditation. We ventured out early each morning, and usually came back here in the afternoon to swim in the saltwater pool, rinse under the outdoor shower, relax, nap and plan/prep, or change to go out to, dinner in nearby Pa'ia (Dazoo, Rock and Brews, Paia Fish Market). The retreat is the most modern of all the units and could comfortably sleep 3-4 people. Large windows on all sides provide views of the mountains and the sea.The open kitchen was well equipped, however some of the appliances could have been more thoroughly cleaned. We used the grill, with charcoal and kiawe wood chips and enjoyed the fresh bananas and papayas provided by our caretaker, Alex, a young man transplanted from Pennsylvania. The bed was comfortable and the closets sufficient. We loved the natural furniture and ample seating. In addition to two couches, large square meditation cushions were stacked in the front room, and with the cross breezes, proved to be an excellent mound on which to nap in the sun and breeze, like a cat. When we departed for Kihea for the second half of our trip, we seriously considered if we could return to this expansive and serene setting, if we didn't like the busy-ness of the more touristy West Maui area. We can't wait to go back!"

  • Magical Paradise

    "This was our second stay at the Starwind Cottage and it was just as magical as it was the first time! Our stay was filled with relaxation under stars close enough to touch in the hot tub and in the morning, listening to the beautiful birds. Upon arriving after a long day of travel, there was fruit, snacks and coffee waiting for us. We cooked several nights and found everything you could need to use to produce fabulous dinners - BBQ, oven, etc., as well as plates, bowls, cups, glasses, etc. When we think about a relaxing fabulous vacation, we think of the Starwind Cottage because of it's magical presence and views of the valley. We returned fully rested, full of Maui's paradise and will be going back again! Bev and David are the most wonderful hosts with so much knowledge of Hawaii to share. Thank you Starwind Cottage - David and Bev for another memorable vacation in Maui!"

  • Getaway to the Real Hawaii

    "We chose the Dream cottage after meeting Gregg and Danielle the previous winter while looking for an Upcountry retreat. The Cottage is clean and neat and has all that is needed for a week or more in Paradise; you will fall asleep with the sound of the breezes thru the mango trees and wake up with birdsong. We enjoyed the location, numerous nearby beaches, waterfalls on the road to Hana, and just a short drive to the Action of Kihei and Wailea. Highly recommended for an adventurous Couple!"

  • A Little Maui Time

    "On the road to Hana, we stayed at the cottage. The fruit was fresh from the trees and delicious. We needed the laundry facilities and everything else was handy and working. A great place to enjoy the upcountry and kick back from the hustle. Thanks to Aly and Mark for a warm welcome."
