We were so pleased with our 5 night stay at Akua. Nicolas was very responsive and helpful and the place was welcoming, clean, well stocked, stylishly updated and on a few lovely acres. We came with our two children (5 and 1yr) and enjoyed discovering all fruit trees around the home and made great use of the large, covered and gated patio and BBQ. Akua and Paia (the nearest town) were also a nice change from the typical tourist side of Hawaii. Make sure to visit Mana Foods to get a true feel for Paia - though I'd recommend venturing into the boutique grocer without the little ones, and be patient on the parking. We truly enjoyed ourselves and hope to stay here again in the future.
Everything was fine we had a great time and would go again anytime.
The whole organization (description to find the location, the keys, help in case of question,..) was perfect.
Thank you, Nicolas we enjoyed the stay.
The appartment, was very beautiful and we loved to stay there.
We used the kingsize bed, which is very comfortable. The location is beautiful and quite. My boyfriend loved to use the BBQ.
We had a great time and loved to be there.
Thanks for staying with us. We are looking forward to improve our homes and offer our guests an amazing experience!
great space, great location, comfortable beds
would recommend to friends unreservedly
Thanks you your nice comments. We are lookig forward having stay with us again!
We spent 9 days at the house and it was perfect for our family! Everything was so clean and tidy! We never had to even call the manager for help
Thank you Nicholas! Hope some day we can make it back again- majo
After 12 wonderful days in Maui we were all very sad that we had to leave this magical island. Laka Villa is a perfect place to stay if you appreciate spending your vacation away from crowdy tourist places. That was our plan and it worked out perfectly for us. You need a car for easy access to the property. But that is a general suggestion for Maui. Having a car makes your vacation definitly more comfortable. No worries, driving there is totally relaxed – hang loose also counts on the streets. Haiku is a good spot close to all the wind surfing beaches and a good starting point for other activities such as horse riding, road to hana, haleakala crater, exploring Paia etc. BTW at the fish market in Paia you get the best fried calamaris ever!
Our Landlord Nicolas has a good taste for interior design. The furniture at the apartment is well selected and combined harmonically. Laka Villa has a good set of equipment. Everthing looked brand new, very clean and the beds were really comfortable - we all sleped like happy logs. There was a lot of space for clothes, bags etc. Perfect for us 4 Swiss-Girls!
Communication with Nicolas was very releaxed and convenient. All our inquiries were answered right away. Check In an Check Out was really easy and Nicolas also let us stay longer due to our evening flight. Mrs Lourdes the person in charge for the property was really helpful and our requests were settled right away.
Thank you Nicolas for leting us stay at Laka Villa. You were a great host and we decided to nominate you for „the best landlord among the entire pacific rim award “. I hope you accept this nomination.
Mahalo and Goodbye
We liked the place so much that we extended our stay there. The house is decorated in a really lovely way - very modern and clean, quiet and peaceful.
Would definitely stay there again. Nicolas was very helpful and very good in communicating which made our stay very relaxed. I can absolutely recommend this place!!
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
My wife and I spent a week here in late Feb and loved it. Nicolas was really easy to deal with and everything was as expected. We hired a car and the location made it really easy to get around - especially the road to Hana, also Makawao and Paia. Would happily recommend staying here..
Excellent property. Very spacious and in lovely grounds. All mod cons and everything brand new. Perfect for people who want a quiet braek away from the crowds. You do need a car.
