About Dave & Nyla

Dave grew up in Southern California and moved to Maui in 2004 to ride the giant waves at Jaws. He met Nyla who was born and raised in Maui. They now have a beautiful son together named Max. We hope to host you on your visit to Paia, Maui.

Dave & Nyla purchased this studio in 2005

Why Dave & Nyla chose Paia

Mangolani Inn has recently been voted Top 5 Inn's on Maui by Hawaii Magazine. Our property is in an excellent location just outside of town by the old sugar mill on Baldwin Ave. Its about 15 min to the airport, 1 min drive to Paia town or 10 min walk. It's less than a mile to one of the most beautiful beaches in Maui... Baldwin Beach.

You can walk to some great one of a kind, healthy restaurants and shops in about 10 min. There is an organic cafe and yoga studio 1 min walk from our property. Paia Town draws a very eclectic mix of people from all over the world. There is lots of art, music, yoga, massage, and enlightened people.

What makes this studio unique

We are surrounded by miles of sugar cane just a short distance to the beach. When the waves are up you can hear the surf pounding on the outer reefs. Its nice to be close to the heart of this special little beach town...Paia is a Magical place. We use only non toxic cleaning supplies to clean all our units. ; )

Well situated, clean and welcoming space

  • 5 of 5

The property was very well maintained and the owners extremely thoughtful about necessities away from home. There were two sets of washers and dryers accessible to all so pack light! The landscaping was beautiful which also allowed you to relax at home for a bit - you could be outside but didn’t have to be “out”. The most thoughtful aspect of the accommodation was the access to a shower and towels even after check out. This is key because it allows you to make full use of your last day since flights back to the mainland are often at night. Walkability to Paia town was also much appreciated because we had quick, easy access to restaurants and shops.

Beautiful House and Garden

  • 5 of 5

We loved Dave, Nyla and their son Max's place! They are warm, and welcoming and made our trip a memorable one. Three of us stayed in the Large Studio, myself, and my two teenage children. We had plenty of room, and the kitchen and bathroom are both large and well stocked. The place is immaculate, and the decor is lovely. They supply everything you'd need for snorkeling and surfing, and an abundance of beach towels, umbrellas, coolers, bug spray and sunscreen. There are super cute, well mannered pets on site, which helped make it feel like we were staying at a home, instead of a hotel. They have the most gorgeous, lush green garden, with mango, banana, avocado, coconut and tomatoes growing on their property, and the hot tub ain't bad either....

Laundry facility is on site and so helpful!

Walk to downtown is about 10-15 minutes, and walk to beach a little further. I recommend driving to the beach as the beaches in the area tend to get very windy, so you may need to pack up and move to another beach further down the island. We had no trouble parking at any of the beaches we visited. Thank you so much for everything and we look forward to returning one day soon....

Garden Oasis and fabulous studio

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Mangolani was perfect! We stayed in a first floor studio just remodeled and professionly decorated with a modern yet homey feel. The house is situated on beautiful grounds with a hot-tub to soak in every night. The kitchen was stocked beyond belief, better than ours at home and we love to cook! Laundry, extra linens, anything you might need for your beach outing is all on site. We love the location, a quick walk to Mana Foods for gluten, vegan, healthy foods is .6miles away. We enjoyed coffee in the morning listening to the wind chimes or took it to go to the nearby beach. We love the locals in Paiu and getting away from the tourist noise and movement of Kehei and Kannapali. The owner, Dave is always on site, responds to any concerns instantly as was a great host. We are booking again soon for next January!!

Paia was voted as one of the happiest beach towns in America! Vogue Magazine wrote it's the place to be in Maui if you want to avoid the tourist trap mega resorts. It has the best beaches shops and restaurants on Maui. If you like organic food, yoga, massage, surfing, kiteboarding, windsurfing and conscious like minded people then Paia is where you want to stay.

The North Shore of Maui is the place to be! For Sure!
