About Dave & Nyla

Aloha, I'm Dave. I grew up in Southern California as anxious surfer wanting to find the perfect wave. Every year traveling to Hawaii and never wanting to leave, but my 'job' always kept me stuck in LA. Finally one day in 2004 I decided I could not let my dreams be just dreams, and I quit my job, sold my house, and moved to Maui. My dream was to surf the biggest waves in the world, and create a relaxing tropical sanctuary to call home. This dream has become a reality...I got some huge waves! and... 'MangoLani Inn was born. I met the girl of my dreams and now we have an amazing son named Max. We hope to share our slice of paradise and the sprit of Aloha with you! Dave, Max and Nyla

Dave & Nyla purchased this house in 2005

Why Dave & Nyla chose Maui

I chose this property because of its size and location.

It's a nice sized lot compared to others around us. 15,600 sq ft.

The location is great! 10 min to airport or less. 10 min walk to Paia town and 15 min walk to the beaches. We are surrounded by sugar cane fields so there are not many neighbors. Great ocean views looking over swaying cane grass. The trade winds are always blowing here too so it's like natural air conditioning. Paia sits on the edge of the 'dry belt' meaning we don't get nearly as much rainfall as properties in Haiku area only a 15 min drive east. Sometimes it rains for a week there and it's sunny here all week.

What makes this house unique

We have 2 huge mango trees and a giant avocado tree. Bananas and Papaya's grow like weeds! Starfruit, mountain apple, pineapple, surinam cherries, and passion fruit can be picked also. We have 3 really nice dogs and cat that are always happy to meet new people.

A new Yoga Studio and organic cafe just opened a few doors up the street at the Historic Paia Train Depot. It's called Maui Yoga Shala and Island Fresh Cafe.....Namaste

Guestbook comments from the owner

This place is a really nice vacation home. Our family of 4 rented the upstairs house for the week and had a magical time. Paia Town is a short walk down the road and the beaches are just a few minutes further.

It's a perfect location, because you can leave your rental car at the house and walk as parking can be hard to find in town. The house is well appointed, clean, and very comfortable. We enjoyed the Jacuzzi and had some nice BBQ's out on the deck. Dave the host is a great guy and has lot's of local knowledge about the area. He really takes a lot of pride in his property and is all about customer service. We plan to come back again for sure. This is the best place around by far, and is very reasonably priced.

A quiet getaway close to town

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have stayed at Mangolani three years in a row, and each year is better than the last. The owner has put a lot of thought and care to creating a beautiful property that is very comfortable, clean, and well maintained. The property manager is really on top of it, too -- he's super responsive and easy to work with. You can't beat the convenient location that still allows you to escape the noise and business closer to town, and the property really allows you to relax and chill between site-seeing excursions and going to the beach. I would definitely recommend this place to others, and we can't wait to come back!

The Listing description didn't include the aloha spirit that is part of Upcountry Maui. The photos reflecting the rental's appearance are right on!......Including the cat with a Namaste sign in the background. The property is clean and well maintained - gardeners and maintenance folks seemed to be always doing something helpful. There was always someone on hand to answer questions. The fun town of Paia is either 4 minutes down the hill (if you're 13 years old or 15 of you're 65). The grocery store, Mana, local eateries, the shave ice lady's place are all favorites for our family. I'd soooooo recommend this place!

Great place - great folks :)

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughter and I had the privilege of staying at the Mangolani.

Great place! Despite being on Baldwin Road, the landscaping, fencing and design give it a very secluded feel. Once inside the gates, you truly are in a sanctuary. The Treehouse is a fabulous set-up with great views and is decorated very tastefully. Everything was clean, modern and functional.

Fantastic place and looking forward to coming back with a group! Thanks Dave!

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5

My son & I stayed for 16 days and I've never know such great hospitality. Dave and his girlfriend made us feel so at home. The whole place was awesome. Even though they were under construction, it was still very homey. They helped us out when we needed a place to stay. I would highly recommend Dave's place. Just walking distance to a cool old hippie town which was right up my alley. The town had so much to offer and great great food. Charlies is a must. Owned by Willie Nelson. I will recommend this to everyone. I'm looking forward to future stays with Dave. Aloha and Mahalo !!!!!!

Car: recommended

Paia is the best little beach town on Maui, and recently nominated the 'Happiest Beach Town in America'. It's often overlooked by the mainstream travelers that get sucked into the tourist treadmill of Wailea, Kihei, Kaanapali, and Lahaina. Paia has 'old Hawaii' feeling. No corporate chain stores and strip malls. It's all mom and pop style shops and restaurants. Most of the restaurants offer organic foods grown locally and you will also find the best Health Food store on island here in Paia. Mana Foods.

There are eclectic shops full of all kinds of unique merchandise you won't find anywhere else. In Paia you can take a yoga class, get a massage, go for a surf, eat healthy, and meet some of the nicest people on island. 'There is music in the cafe's at night and revolution in the air.'
