Guestbook comments from the manager

Aloha! Just a quick email to let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation on Maui. We had a wonderful time and the cottage was fabulous. Frankie and Dan made us feel very welcome, checking in with us to make sure everything was going well, but totally gave us our space. They were very accommodating on our final day as our flight didn’t leave Maui until late that evening, they told us to go out and enjoy the day and leave our luggage at the cottage. That afternoon we came back to the cottage and were able to have a shower and be fresh our 14 hour trip home. The Luau was great. Thanks so much to concierge services for taking care of this for us. I will recommend the Bird of Paradise Cottage to whomever may be interested.

Awesome location, well appointed, friendly owners - Just PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

This private guest home was perfect for our party of 3 for my birthday getaway. Ocean views, quiet, parking, private pool, every kitchen item one could possible need and then some. The fridge had breakfast items and fresh fruit waiting. Anything we would need for the beach, chairs, umbrellas, towels etc etc were available. Bonus were the super friendly owners - genuinely good people. A ton of extras I did not expect. Frankie even had a birthday card and a gift waiting on my birthday! So sweet, thoughtful and unexpected. I love the home and the owners. Can't wait to return! XO

Lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely two BR/two bath cottage. Both king size with outdoor access. Very comfortable sitting room, extremely well equipped kitchen. W &D. Beautiful views. Open access to huge private pool with full outdoor kitchen, lounges, umbrellas and so on. Very friendly owners who live next door. Only negative is that beach requires a 10 minute drive. Otherwise all the advantages of S Kihei are readily available.

Home Away from Home in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

One of the best places we ever stayed! It was perfect for the two of us and our new little baby. When we arrived there were fresh flowers and basics in the fridge to welcome us. We also received a welcome call upon arrival. We were able to swim in the amazing pool and they had all the swim accessories we could ever imagine for both the pool and the beach. Additionally, Frankie was so kind in providing us with a Pack ‘n Play for the house and up by the pool. The house was clean, modern, with all the essentials to make coffee, breakfast and dinner in. Not to mention the view is amazing! Our favorite thing was having coffee and mimosas on the lanai. Frankie dropped by some fresh banana bread and dropped by some fresh fruit from the property. We loved the cottage and hope to be back again in next year! Thanks for making our stay comfortable and relaxing. We’ll definitely be back and recommend this place to everyone!

Paradise in Maui

  • 5 of 5

My family of 3 (my 65-year old mother, myself and my 6-year old daughter) stayed at this property recently for 15 nights. It was simply fantastic. The cottage is incredibly clean, comfortable and well-stocked with everything you could need. It is bright and airy and the central AC means the temperature is always perfect, while not being noisy at all. We ate all our breakfasts and dinners outside, enjoying the ocean view, the birds and the geckos. We swam every day and *loved* the bonus of having the hot tub. Frankie is a super host...I feel we have honestly made a friend for life. Dan is great, too, just a bit more reserved. :) The location is great and the neighbourhood is very peaceful. I can't go on enough about it, really! When we return to Maui, we will absolutely book here again.
