"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!"

"What a great house! The location was excellent too: 15 minutes to Paia beaches, 45 minutes to West Maui, 40 minutes to South Island, 45 minutes to Haleakala, 20 to the airport. Loved being far away from the resorts and goofy tourists! In a very nice neighborhood (except neighbors' dogs barked a lot). I felt right at home here. Incredible ever-changing view (beautiful sunsets), plenty of room for 3 couples. Everything was clean and there was plenty of beach/snorkel/boogie board equipment to use. Much cooler and comfortable UpCountry.
Makawao Town was great, everyone is so friendly, Komodo Bakery was AWESOME, and Casanova had very good Italian food. These were all within walking distance.
Would definitely want to visit again and highly recommend to visitors who like to travel off the beaten path."

"We have stayed in Paia several times and this is truly an awesome place. It's very close to town and the beautiful beaches. Avis, the owner was very easy to deal with and extremely nice and helpful. We stayed in the sunset unit and It was super clean and a great size. Having a full kitchen is great and it was well stocked. It also has a nice large flatscreen TV. We used the grill many times and ate on the patio. The AC worked great, and is tough to find in Paia. We stayed here 10 days and would definitely recommend this unit."

"My wife and I spend a wonderfully relaxing two days at the Koali Ranch Cottage. We loved sitting on the lanai watching the ocean, and the cows and horses grazing in the fields. Kitchen and amenities were great. The cottage is small and the dining table is outdoors on the lanai. At first, we were worried about mosquitos in the evening but the citronella candle seemed to have been effective at keeping them away! The cottage is conveniently located south of Hana on the main road to the Oheo Gulch and the Pipiwai Trail but everything was quiet at night. We would definitely stay at the cottage again."
