The listing was accurate, and the space was very pleasant... beautiful ocean views, interesting town half a mile away, turtles coming right up to the base of the water at night, and great to have the two condos together for 4 bedrooms in all. The downsides were a) the place is right off a busy highway so no ability to run or walk easily from the spot (the one day I went for a run I really felt unsafe and although on the side of the road people who did not expect pedestrians honked in alarm at me), b) not a good place for young kids - there is a 10 foot drop onto large rocks right off the garden, and we needed to make sure our toddler did not play in the garden at all, and c) there is no beach right from the condo, and the closest beach has rocks and strong undertow so not great for kids.
delighted with our stay at Oceanfront Villa. Beautiful views of the waves breaking on the rocks, the surfers, the giant sea tortoises frolicking in the rocks, and humpback whales spouting in the distance.
wind was breezy but not gusty. Between the wind, the ceiling fans and the windows, house does not need AC
Town of Paia only 10 minute walk east of the house is quaint and has a surprising number of fine and reasonably priced restaurants. amazing that such a pleasant little hippie-ish village is only a 10 minute drive east from the airport.
We plan to return. If you require the amenities (and the stuffiness) of a major resort, you can find places on Maui's West Coast for three times the price of this. But if you want to be in real world, with beautiful sights and sounds, and funky restaurants and people, yet accessible easily to Hana, Kahalui, and West Maui, this place is hard to beat.
Laura was friendly and accessible
The check-in process was extremely simple. We showed up and left when we were supposed to. The view is wonderful and the property has most of what anyone would need. The other reviews have touched on our experience as well, we ended up arriving near dark as a result of a delayed plane and the path to the house is dim.
The rooms and closets provided ample room for our party and they were also able to accommodate a cot and pak-n-play for children. We were able to find practically everything we needed that you would expect to be in a rental home. When we did need assistance it was there extremely quickly. We did notice a critter or two with us, but nothing ridiculous. Keeping food stored is an obvious first step.
The views are amazing and you can really hear the waves at night in the upstairs rooms. We had a great time. Paia was nice, but if you plan to spend a lot of time on the west side of the island the drive does become inconvenient for a longer stay. We really enjoyed ourselves and would stay again, even with the inconvenience of the drive.
We hired Oceanfront Villa and the adjacent cottage for a family reunion over Christmas (we were 12 adults, a 4 year old and 2 babies under 1). The location is perfect to get away from it all - the day we arrived we were spoilt with several double rainbows and the sea below was teaming with turtles (and at times surfers!). Definitely a place to relax and take it all in. It's not far from town but I would recommend a car if you really want to explore the surrounds and swimming beaches. I would definitely recommend the Villa as you can explore the rest of the island easily from here.
The house is just roomy enough for such a large group and the rooms are all well sized. It has a LOVELY rustic feel. We had all we needed (good bath towels and swimming towels too) but the kitchen requires a much needed upgrade and the dishwasher in particular needs replacing. We had to do a lot of washing up manually which was a challenge with such a large group not to mention being in holiday mode! There are also a couple of maintenance issues which were noticed but not a massive problem. We understand work is in progress to fix these. Wifi is fantastic - 10 times better than our hotel in Honolulu!
Laura and her brother were amazingly welcoming and attended to any issues / queries right away... and even came out on Christmas Eve to fix the ovens. They were easily contactable and went out of their way to be helpful and went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. They even installed a line to dry / hang out our clothes as the only other option was a dryer (I gather it's an Australian thing!). Laura arranged for a cot and extra bedding for the children before we arrived.
All in all I would definitely recommend Oceanfront Villa - you won't be disappointed.
We arrived at night, so it was difficult to see the keypad at the gate. With a tiny flashlight and several attempts, we were able to gain entry. This property is a bit more rustic than the photos show on this site, but it was still a lovely place to spend the week. Laura was very helpful with the minor problems we had during our stay, and worked quickly to ensure our comfort.
