I am a very easy going person who is very grateful to own the most beautiful beachfront villa on Maui. I enjoy music, travel, beautiful sunsets, and meeting cool people.

Our experience staying in Beachfront cottage was pleasant. Mark was very helpful letting us in on a very short notice. The location is very convenient as well, there is a cute little beach just outside the house and the town of Paia is only a few minutes away.
we stayed for overall 22 days at the sea breeze villa (10 in the nautical suite and 12 in the cottage).
it was a wonderful time in a fantastic place. the villa (and the surrounding area) is definitely big enough even if it is completely booked. kristen a really cool housekeeper and always there if needed. about every useful thing you would need on an island like this already is there. they even had a baby-bed for us, since we were traveling with our 11-moth old baby.
overall its perfect for you if you don't need big breakfast / lunch / dinner buffets with lots of people watching you and no daily room-service. in ervery other aspect the sea breeze villa offers everything what all the big (and often more expansive) hotels could give.
just one hint because of some casual acquaintance: for people how need city-nightlife and / or evening / night entertainment paia (and obviously the villa) is definitely the wrong spot for you.
so now go ahead and take your chance to stay at this awesome place!

The location in Paia was absolutely central - perfect for travelling both east and west of the island. The neighbourhood was quiet and relaxing, and right next door to Mama's Fish House!!
Mark was not at the house when we stayed there; however, the amenities were unparalleled, the view was stunning, and the other guests were lovely. I did not want to leave!
Mark´s house is PERFECT!!
First, Pai'a is a fantastique place to stay when you stay on the Island. The climate is confortable compared with the other shores, and the situation is very accessible and easy to start from when you go for your tours.
Then, If you want to enjoy your stay un Mauï do not hesitate a second and rent a room here immediately. We were not in the fanciest room of the house, yet it was way better than anything we could have imagined.
Many honey moon couples come through the house and they are enchanted with the other suits, the view, the kitchen facilities. We even have fins and snorkling goggles! Whether you believe it or not the beach is really right down the stairs.
Too bad that we couldn't stay longer, we would have tried the sauna and "Hammam".
And my favorite memory is doing my yoga on the terrace every evening, at sunset, facing the beach, with a visit from sweet coco the parrot from next house .
Even the other travellers who were there were great!!!
It was just PERFECT!
Thank you Mark!

FREE night your next visit!
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our week in Maui and The Fountain Sweet was exactly what we were looking for. We have already been telling our friends and family that the only way they should do Maui is at Mark's place on the North Shore. It's so much more relaxing than the normal "tourist-y" South side. We couldn't have found a more perfect launching point for all our island adventures. We met great people there and Christine, our host, was phenomenal-- so accommodating and helpful.
This is the way to experience Maui!
Thank you so much,

Great location, great house, great host! We'll definitely be back to visit this corner of paradise and enjoy the Aloha spirit. Thanks Mark.
Mark was a tremendous and considerate host. The ocean view suite was everything I was hoping for. The home was fantastically positioned a stones throw away from Mamas the most exclusive beachside restaurant on the north shore and fastidiously cared for. I will definitely go back
Response from Mark:
You are a great guy & loved having you stay here.
Great location - close to Paia; next door to Mama's; great for those looking to get a head start on the traffic to Hana. The yard and view were great, as was the practically private beach.
The cottage itself was clean, well-stocked, furnished, and comfortable. It was a little warm during the day and the pool was not very enticing, but with the ocean out back and so much to do in Maui there was little reason to be inside the cottage during the hottest part of the day or to bother with the pool. The evenings were quite pleasant inside with nice ocean breezes. The cottage is a little weathered...but for the most part I'm assuming that's merely a result of being ON the ocean (which in itself made it worth it for us). We didn't get to meet Mark but he was very responsive. Thanks!

We are re-plastering the pool tomorrow. It needed it.
It will be a gorgeous, little pool in a week or so!
We had a wonderful 4 day stay at the SeaBreeze property, starting off for one night in the Cottage and then moving over to the Ocean Suite for the other three days/nights.
The property at large is so uniquely situated and the 'piece de resistance' is that it faces a small mostly private sandy beach off of Ku'ua Cove with direct private access from the property itself. Being just a short drive away from the airport in Kahului, just minutes from the heart of Pa'ia, Baldwin Beach State Park (awesome beach), and Ho'okipa (best windsurfing, kite-boarding, surfing on the island), and only steps away from the highly acclaimed Mama's Fish House restaurant - the property affords its guests the opportunity to relax in the luxurious surroundings and amenities of the main house and to minimize traveling time while sightseeing anywhere on the North side of Maui. Planning to snorkel? Perfect....the property sits directly on a small sandy beach with private access to/from it, which is separated from the ocean by a shallow (~2 - 6 feet deep depending on time of day) tidal pool featuring a series of partially submerged rocky shoals that form a perfect home for the 10-12 different species of small colorful fish that live there (various types of Butterfly fish, etc). Couldn't be any better.
The Cottage is located away from the main house, well equipped, spacious, self-contained, with separate entrance and is nice and quiet. The Ocean Suite is very special - from both the bedroom itself with its own private lanai, it offers expansive views of the ocean, the coconut palms on the ocean, and the beach and tidal pools. The sounds of the ocean and waves is omnipresent. The ladies will love the very spacious bathroom with it's own ocean views from the separate shower and tub - lots of closet space as well.
We thoroughly enjoyed relaxing and mingling with the other guests in the common areas of the main house (HUGE kitchen/dining area and large living room - each with their own awesome views) - we met some great guests while staying there whom we will look to keep in contact with. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and hope to be back again.
Mark and Kristin were both very nice and so accommodating as hosts - answering our many questions and providing lots of helpful local information when we asked.Thanks Mark and Kristin for affording Karen and I an the opportunity to stay at SeaBreeze - we had an awesome birthday vacation stay. Mahalo.
