Akua Villa Description
Leave your dream in Maui private, secluded villas in a gated property retreat where you are the only guests -- surrounded by unspoiled natural beauty, brilliant rainbows, sunsets over the ocean -- whether you are in honeymoon, sport vacation, family getaway or just want to spend relaxing time on the island.
Have the best of both worlds by staying away from crowds and commercialized development, yet conveniently situated for exploring the entire island, just minutes from hiking, beaches, shops, and fine dining.
Unlike the typical resorts and hotels to the west or south, Maha Maui Villas is a private retreat on the north shore of Maui. This part of the island still offers the chance to experience a natural paradise of pristine beaches, bamboo jungle, waterfalls and tropical rainforest.
The name. The word for god or goddess in Hawaiian is akua, whose meaning is very indeterminate. It was applied to the spirit, i.e., the invisible motive or creative essence, of anything and everything. Therefore, the Creator, the wind, the first aspect of the full moon, a high-ranking chief, a slave, a ghost, and that which causes a motor to work might all be called akua in certain contexts. For the most part, though, the word was commonly applied to forces, persons, and things which had a lot of mana, i.e., power or influence. What this means is that, when we hear or read stories of an entity such as Pele, the volcano goddess, we can never be certain whether the story is about the spirit of a natural phenomenon, the human ancestor of a particular family line, or both, or neither

When we started comunicating with Nicolas and wanted to book we had a problem with Airbnb for a few days, Nicolas got hold of them and sorted it out within a few hours. After arriving his manager on site had double booked the villa so we had to stay one night in another and move the following day to another one. First of all Nicolas had no knowledge of this and made imediate financial compensation and instead of waitting around the following day to move we went out and the cleaning girls moved and everything was waitting in the new villa.
The complex is gated and consists of four villas each differant in size and layout, but with everything you need. The beds were extremely comfortable and it was great to sit out on the covered deck drinking and eating, from the bbq, while it was lashing down with rain. Being away from the main crowds up in the country has it's advantage, quite, lovley and green with the fresh smell after the rains. A short drive to Paia for it's beaches and quaint town with some good places to eat. A good base to do the Hana Highway, Haleakala Crater and don't miss Makawao.
Would recomend the place for families or a romantic hideway
The place is quit, rural and beautiful. Nicolas is very friendly, welcoming and professional. Any communication was responded very quickly. He recommended places to see and dine around the beautiful area of Paia. The local beach in Paia is just a 15 minute drive away and have the best surf spots on the island as well as yoga studios.
The five different apartments are brand new with everything you need, included soft towels, beach towels and comfy beds.
Apartment number one and two have the best view over the ocean and the countryside with huge terraces.
We stayed in number five where there is a outdoor sitting area, but no ocean view.
There's a local cafe just a quick walk away with tasty coffee, fresh croissants and lots of good bakery for breakfast and lunch.
We loved staying there and will be back as soon as possible.
Highly recommended by 3 Norwegian girls :-)
