Under the Warm Maui Sun - Permit#BBKM\2016\0004


Nestled at the entrance to the luxurious Wailea Resort area, Villa Paola is a haven of tranquility and airy Italian delight; truly the most unique Wailea cottage you will find!

Redesigned by artists Alessio and Marcello and luxuriously hand crafted by artisans with old World talent in marble, travertine, mosaics and wood, this 1bedroom, 1 bath hideaway captures the ambience and classic elegance of a villa in Tuscany. With warm yellow ocher and umber throughout the villa contrasted to the cobalt blue of the saline swimming pool surrounded by lush tropical foliage, you'll debate if you are in the Mediterranean or on Maui.

It's easy to feel as if you have been swept away to Italy when viewing the paintings on every wall that capture the essence of Italian living.

Isn't that the perfect topic to discuss over sunset cocktails at the terrace bar shaded by a custom designed red-wood canopy that lights at night by a moonlike fixture. A savory dinner of local fish and vegetables from the farmers market may be prepared in the fully stocked kitchen with top of the line appliances and marble countertops, or brought in from the many excellent eateries minutes away - then lingered over in the charming dining room or on the terrace around an antique Italian table fit for royalty. Your own 5 star Wailea Resort!

After an evening stroll or glass of port, you'll tumble into a restful sleep in the two bedrooms outfitted with queen beds, down filled pillows and fine European linens. Too happy to fall asleep? Indulge in a little late night TV on either the 52'' or 26'' state-of-the-art plasma screens or online poker with wireless internet access.

Bathrooms are your thing? Each of the two bathrooms are elegantly finished with ivory and sand stone, large-enough-for-two showers and the perfect lighting to admire your tan lines or apply makeup for a night on the town.

When you do tear yourself away from this private oasis, straight down the road (4 minutes American style driving, only 1 minute 37 seconds if you drive like a crazy Italian) you will find one of the most beautiful beaches on Maui; Keawakapu. You also have the option to spend the day at the see- and-be-seen Wailea beach or the all-to-yourself Makena beach. You'll be close to the best accomodations in Wailea; minutes away from the Shops at Wailea, the Grand Wailea, Four Seasons Wailea, and Kea Lani, where you'll find world class restaurants! When you arrive home, step in to the outdoor relaxing shower with the all-embracing and invigorating 6 needle jet sprays.

Feeling a little adventurous? Explore all that Maui has to offer. Majestic views at the top of Haleakala, old-time Hawaii in heavenly Hana, world-class windsurfing at Hookipa, and historic sights in Old Lahaina Town are just a few of Maui's unique charms. Now that you have discovered the perfect place to stay, it is time to find the perfect place to play - Maui.

Please inquire for children.

With no exceptions, property in NOT suitable for wedding parties or ceremonies and after sunset your number of visitors has to be reasonable.Please inquiry for more details.

Maui from their homeland, Florence, Italy to windsurf and to pursue

their careers as artists. They are like the two sides of a coin.

Marcello, the visionary and Alessio, the technician. Together they

complete passionate works of art of extreme beauty and originality.

The juxtaposition of the classic and the contemporary, the

European and the Hawaiian , Villa Paola is the reflection of their pursuit for perfection.

What makes this cottage unique

Having your own kitchen - your own private pristine pool - your own paradise!!!

A Terriffic Place

  • 5 of 5

What a delightful place to stay on Maui! It is a wonderful little house that is artsy and very nicely appointed. Its located up the hills from Waialua. The saline pool is a real treat. We made our own breakfast and prepared lunch's to go. We even got some fresh seafood and grilled it two nights. The car that is also available is not luxurious but it is perfect for Maui. The Twins are very responsive to your needs but leave you alone. We will certainly use it again next time we go to our favorite island.

Heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

Truly heaven on earth. This magical private haven on Maui is just a mile from the beach near Wailea. It is resplendent with artwork to thrill your eyes and heart as well as spectacular hospitality Italian style. The villa is beautifully appointed and has everything you need for a beach holiday from the chairs, boogie boards, coolers, towels, etc. There are no words to adequately describe the glories of this property and the owners who run it. We are most grateful for the phenomenal honeymoon we enjoyed here at Villa Paola. We will be back again and again to experience the beauty and amazing features of this unique property.

An amazing , private getaway

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing home. Alessio and Marcelo did not leave anything out. Every detail shows how much pride they take in their home and how important their guests are to them. From the amazing outdoor spaces to the beautifully kept bedrooms and bathrooms, we could not have asked for anything more. Marcello and Alessio were so very friendly when we did see them on the property, usually just a quick hello and conversation in the driveway, like a friendly neighbor! They were super respectful of our privacy.

The location of the Villa was perfect. Close to Kihei, Wailea and dozens of public beaches.

We will definitely head back to Maui, and we will definitely try and stay at this beautiful Villa again. Thank you again to the Twins!

Excellent Rental

  • 5 of 5

Villa Paola is a perfect South Maui Rental. My husband and I enjoy quiet and privacy which is exactly what Marcello and Alessio offer. The home has everything you need from kitchen utensils to lunch coolers and beach umbrellas. The two bedrooms are separated by a short walk across the back patio making this a perfect spot for two couples. The entire home is beautiful with inkaued wood flooring and mosaic tiles along with so many of The Twins' lovely art pieces! We loved touring their studio to see where the art is created. And.... the private pool is fabulous both for daytime relaxation and a nighttime dip. You are also close to snorkeling beaches, restaurants, and the Piilani Highway. All your needs are covered here. I can't wait to return!

R & R and it's best

  • 5 of 5

You cannot go wrong with this rental. The space is beautiful and quiet. It's true, the photos do not do it justice. The pool was to die for and I must say the saline is so much nicer than a chlorine pool. This was just the quiet and peaceful get away that I needed. The location is great. You are close to the beach, shops and dining out if you choose to access. There are many activities to access (e.g., Island tours, zip lining). FYI: The brothers live on the property. They greeted us upon our arrival. They are gracious and truly give you all the privacy you would ever want. We didn't even know they were there.
