About Dave & Nyla

We love to travel and know what people want as far as comfort and cleanliness. We strive to provide the same type of accommodations as we want when we travel. We work hard to make sure our guests are comfortable and have a nice time when they stay with us.

Dave & Nyla purchased this studio in 2005

Why Dave & Nyla chose East Maui

We chose this property due to it's proximity to the coolest beach town on Maui. Very conveniently located a short walk to town and the beach. Paia Town is the place to be in Maui. It's a one of a kind town. There is nothing like it in the state of Hawaii. Maui has the best of everything Hawaii has to offer and Paia is a Magical little town. You can walk from our property to some of the best restaurants, shops and the #1 organic food store on Maui. We are next door to Maui Yoga Shala and organic cafe and a short walk to world class beaches. We are only 15 min from Kahului airport and a 20 minute drive to the waterfalls / rainforest. Paia is centrally located and a great place to start all your island adventures from.

What makes this studio unique

Our property is like a private Tropical Sanctuary. We have 2 mango trees and a huge avocado tree. Many kinds of tropical flowers and herb garden.

Truly a Tropical Sanctuary!

  • 5 of 5

Besides the beautiful property, spacious and clean units, it's the little things that I appreciated most. The approachability of the owners, and the tips of where to see what best in the area. Suggestions for restaurants. The rolling, covered shopping cart, in case you walk into town and shop for groceries. The thirsty, plush bath towels and beach towels. Washer/dryer AND detergent on site for guests' use. The beach equipment for guests to use....a hairdryer in the unit that is better than mine at home! Fully stocked kitchen, and shared cooking area with everything we could possibly need. Soap/shampoo/conditioner, dish soap....high quality bedsheets....we felt like VIP's. Thank you, Dave & Nyla, for a perfectly wonderful stay, in every way. Ideally located and like being at home (only BETTER!), don't hesitate to book Mangolani Inn when you plan a trip to Maui.

Great location, beautifully well maintained with friendly owners.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay here. Dave is a great host and the property is well maintained and appears to be getting updates regularly. Short and easy walk to shops, restaurants and beach in Pai'a. Great location to head to Hana or Upcountry. Island Fresh Cafe is a great breakfast stop and is just a very short walk up the block. My wife would absolutely stay here again next time we visit Maui.

Great location, well appointed, and clean

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Mangolani Inn in our studio apartment. The location was perfect, just walking distance from downtown. The apartment was clean and I mean clean. This is not like other vacation homes where you feel like you are literally walking into someone's home after they left for work for the day. It is clean like a hotel. We really appreciated that. We also appreciated the attention to the environment with energy efficient appliances and the use of natural soaps like Mrs. Myers Clean Day. The kitchenette has everything you need to cook a full meal. Including sharp Wustof knives and Vitamix blender. But, we didn't feel like we needed to cook because there is a great natural foods market down the street called Mana that has a salad bar and a hot foods bar. Plus, there are great restaurants in Paia town.

Dave and Nyla (the owners) and their little boy are very nice and easy going. We loved interacting with their dog and new puppies. Scott (the property manager) was friendly and helpful and gave us some great tips for places to explore in Maui. We would stay here again and definitely recommend it.

Truly a tropical sanctuary!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 glorious weeks in this island home away from home! Dave was completely accommodating. The inn is charming and rustic - in the best sense. Not a cookie cutter resort; far enough away from the busyness of Hana Highway to be restful and close enough to easily walk down to the shops, restaurants, and most importantly, the beach! Laundry facilities on site was a great bonus. We were welcome to fresh bananas and coconuts from their own trees. (The mangos were not quite ripe yet.) The property has lots of vegetation and blooming plants for privacy and to delight the eyes.

Awesome Maui getaway

  • 4 of 5

Aloha!! We were fortunate to stay at the Mangolani Inn for five days in Jan. 2016. From the first greeting by our gracious host Dave, we were treated to a lovely escape from the rush of modern life. The studio was exceptionally clean, bigger than we thought from the photos and very well equipped. Some original artwork on the walls added to the "island" theme. Our host also has almost everything you could want for a beach trip, picnic or whatever. The communal BBQ, and outdoor kitchen made for a nice place to meet any of the other guests in an informal setting. Keep in mind that this is a family dwelling, not a hotel, and that includes a lovable dog.

Dave shared much of the property's fresh fruits with us including 'to die for' bananas, passion fruit and fresh-off-the-tree coconut water!

The location is perfect for short walks to Paia for shopping, restaurants or access Baldwin Beach. Dave was very helpful and a great source for local tips for first time visitors like ourselves. The grounds are lush, and very well kept. You are well sheltered from the majority of the street noise from Baldwin Ave.

Paia was a hoot! Laid back surfer/hippie vibe mixed with some quality galleries and stores offering more than the typical tourist offerings. Proximity to the airport and the north shore make this a very special location all round.

Mana foods just down the road has an unbelievable variety of produce, and foods of all kinds. Need a break to recharge the batteries? Give this place a try, you won't be disappointed!

Mahalo Dave and Nyla. We would love to return! soon!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

We based ourself here during our recent trip to Maui. The owner Dave was very accommodating, with helpful tips and advice. Nothing was too much trouble and he made us feel very welcome. The studio is set in a beautiful enclosed court yard below the main house with outdoor space to enjoy your breakfast in the morning. The studio was clean and well stocked with everything we needed during our stay. It is within walking distance of Paia with all the shops, restaurants and great beaches. Paia is a cool vibrant little town and we enjoyed being able to walk into town during the evenings for dinner. It's in a lovely part of Maui and an ideal location if you enjoy surfing/ kitesurfing.

Car: recommended

Paia is by far the coolest beach town in Maui. You can walk to Paia town and the beach from the property. We are conveniently located only a 10 min drive from the Kahului airport. 15 min walk to powder white sand beaches and crystal clear tropical ocean water. 25 minute drive and you can be swimming in the waterfalls. I recommend seeing the rainbow eucalyptus trees & Bamboo forest, drive the road to Hana, watch sunrise or sunset from the summit of Haleakala. If you're lucky and the waves are up you can see surfers riding waves in excess of 60 feet at Jaws (Peahi).

Paia has the best organic food store on island (Mana foods) is amazing!

Best restaurant on island (Mama's Fish House) is just down the road as well. We are located a few doors down from the Maui Yoga Shala and Island Fresh Cafe.
