"We rented this place with 3 adults and 3 kids. It was a truly amazing experience. Paula could not have been more helpful in the whole process. We had a quite chaotic departure since our van was not starting when we tried to leave for the airport...and she even mailed me all the stuff we forgot:-)
The little beach opposite the house is great for little kids and the store at the end of the street has divine food. Paia is a few minutes drive and baby beach is about a 10 min drive. Perfect location, great house, best hosts..we will be back for sure...."

"This was our second time in Maui. Our first trip there, we stayed in a resort in Wailea, thinking that - considering the price - it would be as charming as what we had imagined. This second time around, we were in desperate need of some authenticity, and this cottage was everything we hoped for! Our stay at the Maui by the Sea cottage was perfection! The cottage – which is simplistically decorated – had everything you need to prepare your own meals, which allowed us to live like locals and experience the real Paia. The property is right next to the sea and is a spot loved by sea turtles. We didn't have to go snorkeling to see them, all we had to do is eat breakfast and count them! But what we truly appreciated during our stay was our amazing hosts. Their kindness and generosity are unprecedented. Valérie had concocted us a list of great tips and places to see while in Maui, and left on a few occasions local fruit baskets on our door step for us to enjoy! We are glad we got to meet such a lovely couple.
We would strongly recommend this place!"

"I'd recommend this place for a couples getaway OR for the entire family & extended family. The house had everything we needed as a home base for our many adventures around the island. Makawao town is very cool with a a couple smal grocery stores and several nice restaurants. As other reviewers have said just 15 minutes to Paia Town for beaches (including Baldwin State Beach) and more shopping and restaurants and only 25 minutes to the airport. Also, a GREAT location for hitting the road to Hana or visit Mount Haleakalā for a sunrise or sunset (we did the sunset). And, if you want to visit the more touristy areas of Kihei or Lahaina, they are both less than an hour drive! Again, a lovely home with all the amenities your family needs to have a great vacation! Thank you owner Mark!"
