Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • OK so you've booked your flight, now save yourself the long search and just book this place asap! Staying here makes you feel like the luckiest person in the world - how did I get to be here, without being a celebrity billionaire? - kind of feeling. Plus, Paia is an easy walk away, and that's a whole different level of awesome. The shocker is that this house is actually not that expensive. You'll wonder how you could ever vacation anywhere else.

  • Perfect view, perfect location and great service from Katerina! I stayed with my husband for 8 nights and we loved it. The view is just something you cannot watch long enough and every morning when I opened my eyes and saw it I had a BIG smile on my face immediately. Its exactly as on the pictures! The town Paia is not crowded, but also does not offer a good, reasonable restaurant (there is one super fancy on and all the others have a fast touch), but there are options around (e.g. a little town 7 mi up the hill - loved it). We explored the island in both directions from our charming cottage and loved everything. The twin falls e.g. are only about 4 miles away, the Hookipa bay is even closer (check out the surfers there). The only negative point would be that the beaches on the north shore are kind of rough sometimes (if you don't surf), so if you like it nice and calm you have to drive pretty far to the south or west shore. It was great to have our own kitchen (great equipped), Paia has also a very authentic grocery store, so we enjoyed some of the nights just in our cottage, watching the ocean. Loved it, I would come back - no doubts.

  • Beautiful and comfortable little place on the water. A great place to curl up and read but close enough to town and experience local food and shopping.

  • The cottage was perfectly located a 15min. walking distance to Paia town, and right on the water. It had all the amenities one could want. Katerina and the team were great in looking after our special requests and responded quickly to any queries. We highly recommend this charming abode and would book it again.

  • If there were 6 stars to give Katarina and the Ginger Cottage we would. Katarina happened to be at the office by the Cottage when we arrived so we had a nice introduction. By the way she is no longer single:) What started as an innocent introduction turns into a nice friendship. Katarina gave us quick introduction to the Cottage and Paia as whole. Her recommendations were off the charts for restaurants and little coves that we never would have discovered on Maui. She went above and beyond to cater to our every need. The location of the Cottage allowed us to easily access the road to Hana, Back Door way to Kapalua/Lahaina, Big Beach and best of all where to swim with the turtles. The kitchen was totally adequate to prepare fresh fish from Costco and the grille was outstanding.The worst thing that happened to us was the little Gecko droppings in the house. Life on the island does not get any better. Jamie and I want to thank Katarina for a magnificent stay and time we all spent together shooting the breeze. If you choose to stay at a big hotel you are making a big mistake. Ginger Cottage and Katarina Rock!!!!!! We love ya Katarina!!

  • Beautiful views everyday. Easy to access. A wonderful location and we had a great time.

    Kitchen was well equipped. Cottage was clean and inviting when we arrived. Katerina was very friendly. We would certainly come back to this ginger cottage.

  • Der Aufenthalt im Oceanfront Ginger Cottage war wirklich perfekt: Die Organisation im Vorfeld und während unseres Aufenthaltes hat prima funktioniert. Das Haus ist wunderschön und hat eine perfekte Lage direkt am Meer (inklusive Blick auf einen tollen Surfspot).

    Es war ein Traum - wir wären gern noch länger geblieben!

  • Great location for a relaxing weekend. Katerina was great. The cottage is showing some signs of age (ice maker wasn't working, screen door was off, etc.), but location can't be beat and it was still in overall good shape -- would definitely come back

    Response from Laura:

    We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay on the property and would like to return!
    Yes, the property is not brand new... part of its charm, really!
    It WAS well built, and the owners/management do have high standards of quality and maintenance, which is necessary considering the toll the ocean air (with salt and sand) take on a place so close to the ocean.
    The screen door has now been fixed... and as we do not promise an automatic ice maker, there are ice trays in the freezer for use.

  • Our family had a wonderful and very relaxing time at the Ginger Cottage and highly recommend it. The view is just incredible and the yard was fine too, originally we were a little concerned with a 3 year old and the nearby cliff but it worked out just fine. The outdoor shower and pool were welcome additions. The place is well taken care of and very safe! Paia is a fantastic town and the food and shopping great! A few things to know is that there isn't a sidewalk connecting the house to town and the hwy is pretty busy. We would definitely stay here again.

  • My girlfriend and I stayed at Ginger Cottage for a week or so in late August 2013. It was awesome. The house itself is great - looks just like the photos, clean, spacious, good kitchen, etc. The location is good, too - walking distance to Paia (shops, supermarket, restaurants, etc) and a nice, small, quiet beach. Katerina was very responsive to all of my emails and even let us stay late on our last day (as out flight was in the evening)!
