Perfect! Can't wait return to this house next time!
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
My husband and I loved the Plumeria villa. We were not up for a resort trip and prefer staying in AirBnb. This place was awesome - relaxing, great view and without the crowds that you see in resorts. Steps down to ocean, and a climb over rocks to snorkeling and surfing; Great view on the deck; grill; spacious living and sleeping quarters; Great pool and walk into Paia Town; view of ocean from the outdoor (though private) shower. Wish we could have stayed longer and definitely will be back. Thank you Laura!
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.
Great communication from Host.
The properties are as advertised, and only a short walk from town. You hear the ocean constantly! The Plumeria Villa is one Villa back from the seaside, and next to the pool. You can drink your morning coffee either on the lanai or walk to the shore. No beach there (rocky), but a public beach is a block away.
We loved our time there and were sad to leave. When returning to Maui, it will be the first consideration on our list!
The Plumeria was a perfect little place for my family to stay while visiting Maui. The photos really do not do the place justice. Tucked between Hana hwy and the ocean and just down the road from Paia, it is the perfect location. Although there aren't sidewalks the whole way, we walked to town several times. The view from the deck is amazing and we spent a lot of time just listening to the ocean, drinking wine and watching the surfers. This place is perfect in every way!
We rented all three houses in this private enclave in Paia for a one week holiday over New Years. Laura was the ultimate host - helping us well before we arrived. She helped us with babysitter recommendations and with setting up a daily housekeeper for our large group. She was available by text and phone throughout our entire stay, and stopped by a few times to make sure we were okay - there were two major storms that blew through during our stay. The houses are nicely appointed, comfortable, well stocked and super private. The view from the front yard is all ocean - with surfers directly out in front. The pool is clean, a good size for adults and kids and nicely nestled out of the wind coming off the ocean. The houses are well built and uniquely designed.
Thank you for your feedback, I really appreciate the reviews. I am glad you enjoyed staying a Lani Paradise and I hope we can host you again in the future!
Great stay! This house is not oceanfront, but rather tucked back behind another house on the same property. It does have a nice view from the second floor balcony. The hangout area is well laid out.
Laura was the perfect host. She went above and beyond by finding us a babysitter and daily housekeeper. Everyone she recommended was top notch. This house has a beautiful view of the ocean!

Katerina was an amazing host. I actually returned to stay at the property a second time during the same trip to Maui because the location and hosting were so top-notch. I've stayed in a number of AirBnB locations around the world, and so far, Katerina was the best host I've had.
