"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!"

"Traveling on our honeymoon for 12 hours from Buffalo, NY and arriving late in the rain at 10pm we were exhausted and pulled into the driveway at the beautiful home of Ray and Vivienne and were warmly greeted by the man, the myth - Ray Masters. It was like seeing an old friend that we had never met before. He and his wife Vivienne were amazing to say the least. Gracious, kind, funny and full of life can be used to describe these wonderful people. They provided us with great information so we could enjoy the best of what Maui has to offer including places to dine, hikes, waterfalls, beaches,etc. We stayed in a suite right off the house which more then met our needs, the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was beautifully chic and the kitchenette was more then adequate for the week. The private deck overlooks a beautiful backyard and plush furniture allows you to sink in with a favorite book and a glass of wine. The beach is like a private oasis that has turquoise water and white sands with an occasional sea turtle popping its head out to take in the view. It's very rare to see anyone but you and yours except when Ray and his faithful dog Sevin hit the water. My husband loved windsurfing here and the advice from Ray was spot on about the winds and reefs. We were sad when our week was up as we were headed to another house on the island and expressed to our hosts that we had wished we had booked our full two weeks with them, fortunately for us we were asked to return the next day to celebrate Ray's birthday with them and their close friends. We had a blast! What great people, great food, great drinks, great life these people have, and we are blessed to know them. The Aloha spirit is alive and well, book with them and you will not only have an unforgettable vacation but an experience you will not soon forget! We will definitely be returning, much mahalo for sharing your paradise with us!!"

"We stayed at Martha's place for 6 days and had a great time. The condo is perfectly situated near Paia town, Baldwin beach, hana road and many other things to do and visit.
Martha provided us with a fine condo, well equiped from kitchen to bodyboards. In arraging everything and answering questions Martha was quick, friendly and flexible. We could even check out later if needed so.
We, a family of four, would recommend this nice place to any Maui visitor.
