Guest Reviews

"Stefano's place was awesome! Great location in Haiku to get away and really experience Maui. The apartment is just outside of Paia and close to great surf and beach."  - Kyle 

Reviews from our AirbB Clients

"This is a stylish studio in a great location on Maui. It's close to beaches, and cute towns with shops, restaurants, grocery stores, etc. There is parking on the premise. The kitchen is nicely sized. Stephano is an excellent host and was very receptive each time I reached out to him. I recommend this place for a trip to Maui. "

"The place was very clean, town was easily accessible, Stefano was helpful and responsive. We had a great time here and never experienced any bugs like we kind of expected to. We were very conscious to keep food put away since we were in Upcountry Maui. This place suited our needs and I would recommend Stefano as a host any day. Aloha!!"

"We enjoyed our stay at Stefano's place. The pictures accurately depict it. Very comfortable and had everything we needed for the cooking we did (which was just simple meals). It is in a little neighborhood and quiet. We thought it was the perfect location as we wanted to do a lot of hiking and exploring the non-resort areas. You are right on the Road to Hana and easy access to the Upcountry. It is only a 30-45 minute drive to some of the bigger beaches and there are small local beaches near-by."

"We enjoyed our stay. There was everything we needed and it was great to have a cooler available. It was the perfect location for us."

"Amazing location to explore all that the north and east side of the island has to offer. Right along the road to Hana (get a head start before all the crowds!), close to Paia for shopping and dining, and 5 mins from Hookipa beach to fulfill all your turtles viewing desires. Stefano's place is equipped with all that you’ll need and more. No AC but the cross breeze cools it down so nicely it’s truly not needed. Huge bathroom, tons of room!"

"Stefano provides clean, well-equipped, excellent accommodations located in rural Maui just off of the Hana Hwy in a quiet neighborhood with a much more comfortable climate than the Lahaina side of Maui. The brief afternoon rain showers were great so that it never got too hot. For us, his location was best for what we wanted to do. He is also located near to some fine restaurants in Paia & Haiku. Thank you Stefano. We had a great stay with you."

Reviews from Airbnb Clients

"Stefano was most cordial to us & it seemed that he went out of his way to make sure he met & welcomed each of his guests as soon as possible after they arrived. We would certainly recommend his accommodations to anyone going to Maui."

"Awesome place to stay! Paia is a great, relaxed town. The beaches nearby are windy but very quiet and lots of shade if you need it. Stefano had lots of little extras in the suite: toaster, fan, umbrella, scissors, wine opener, etc. Also had access to chairs and snorkeling gear in the garage which made beach trips super easy. Suite was very clean and tranquil." 

"Such a nice place to stay! We loved Paia so much and the beach nearby was quiet and relaxing. Loved that you had everything in the kitchen and area for us. Toaster didn’t work and shower took a long time to heat up, but these were small issues and didn’t affect our stay."

"I was extremely pleased to see that Stefano’s description of the unit was spot on. A truly relaxing and clean environment. Thank you Stefano for a wonderful experience and for your kindness."

"Hello Stefano, I want to thank you so much for making my first vacation in Maui very enjoyable and memorable. The unit was exactly as mentioned and you truly are a wonderful host with many great suggestions. I will definitely be back for an other vacation and hope to see you again."

"Stefano's place was perfect. So close to so many great things, about 5 minutes from Hookipa Beach (one of the better surfing beaches). Had everything we needed, we were able to cook much more efficiently than I expected. Amazing breakfast spot 3 minutes away called Baked on Maui. And right on the start of Road to Hana if you plan on doing that trip. This place was so perfect, Haiku is ideal for a true Maui experience."

Reviews from Airbnb Clients

"Such an amazing location, thank you so much for letting us stay with you. I would certainly recommend your place to others and plan to come back for future business trips."

"Die Unterkunft ist ruhig und gut gelegen. der Check in war sehr einfach und unkompliziert. es waren ein paar tolle Tage dort."

"Stefano's place is a great location for those keen on driving the road to Hana. It is also not very far from the West Maui Forest Reserve and Haleakala. I found the location fairly central to the areas I was interested in visiting. The two ceiling fans in the space help keep the studio well ventilated. I found the bathroom a little humid, so wouldn't recommend drying any beach towels/swimwear in there."

"Great place on the North Shore of Hawaii. Away from all the touristy spots like Lahaina or Wailea but that’s I liked about  it. You’re definitely more emerged with the locals and you’re right next to the Road to Hana and Haleakalā which makes those trips super convenient. Would definitely recommend."

"Logement très propre, lit très confortable, même le divan lit! Plusieurs petites commodités tels que icepack et ventilateurs ont été très appréciés. L’arrivée est très simple et les explications très clair. Nous avons adoré notre séjour."

"Exelente lugar para hospedarse, las fotografías muestran exactamente lo que ofrecen. Amplio limpio y bien equipado, muy cerca de Palia. Sin duda lo recomiendo."
