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.

Absolute perfection!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased to have this as our home base in Maui for 8 nights over Thanksgiving 2017. Accommodations were very comfortable and had every convenience for having some meals at home with a well equipped kitchen and grill area (so we could splurge on some of the finer restaurants!). Beautiful patio and pool area, lovely artwork in the home, and everything you could want for excursions to the beach and beyond. The laundry room was also a great plus. So much better than staying at a resort. Hope to come back next year!

Fairy Tale Honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Villa Paola for 7 nights this month for our honeymoon. We went to Oahu and Kauai and stayed at two of the best resorts on each island - The Royal Hawaiian and The Grand Hyatt Kauai. However, we both loved Villa Paola the best!! Everything was perfect from the private pool, huge bedroom, incredibly comfortable bed, gorgeous bathrooms, outside bar and grill area, to the central location in Kihei to all of the best restaurants and beaches. It was the perfect spot to go on adventures from or to just take the day to relax by the pool or pack up the coolers, beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, and snorkel gear provided. Marcello and Allessio were wonderful hosts! Anything we needed, they provided. We're already dreaming of our next trip back to paradise at Villa Paola!

Grazie mille Marcello e Allessio! Ciao!!

Great relaxing place with comfortable atmosphere & wonderful private pool.

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I spent 5 nts here 9/11-9/15/2017. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. We loved the decor, the comfortable & relaxing environment. Having the private pool was awesome. It was hot & humid during our stay and the pool was a godsend and helped us stay cool.

The reservation process was easy and Darcy answered all my questions & helped with recommending beaches to snorkel or activities to do during our stay.

Our host Marcello was awesome and very friendly. He met us at the house during check in. He went over everything with us. The villa has beautiful paintings Marcello and his twin brother painted. It is set up with 2 seperate living spaces with 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms. In order to get to each bedroom you had to go out the side doors, but ideal if you had 2 couples, each could have their privacy but still have common areas to congregate in.

The outside was a tropical paradise with so many palm trees & vegetation surrounding the front & back yards making it shielded and private from the surroundings neighbors. Your in your own private oasis. The birds serenade you throughout the day. There is a cool bar area outside and dining table as well as chaise chairs, BBQ, a swing chair and an outdoor shower in the private front yard and in the back yard has more chaise chairs and the awesome large pool with float loungers. Towels were provided as well as beach towels, beach chairs, snorkel equipment for beach as well as coolers to pack what you need for a day at the beach.

The twins have thought of everything you may need for your stay.

The property is located in what they call Maui meadows which is not right on the beach & we thought there would be a long drive but not the case. It was a 3-5 min drive to beaches, grocery, shopping at Wailea, or restaurants in the area. We mixed it up by grilling in a few nights & going out a couple nights to eat.

To summarize the Villa Paola was an awesome vacation experience and we would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend to our friends and family. The pictures are true to what it looks like, and high quality decor and material were used to make it a awesome vacation place.

One very minor thing to note is you need to bring your own shampoo & conditioner as it is not provided.

Thank you Marcello for your hospitality and your beautiful vacation rental & thank you Darcy for making the reservation process so easy us. Hope to make it back soon.

Breath-taking contemporary, charming and spacious villa.

  • 5 of 5

Words and pictures can't describe the picturesque villa. The tranquil ambiance gives you a peaceful and relaxing get away feeling, with all the amenities of a home and MORE! Minutes away from beach, night life, 5 star restaurants, parks, grocery store, gas station & hot yoga :)

Nestled in the lovely Maui Meadows perfect for sunrise or sunset walks. Feeling a little lazy?? Take a swim in the gorgeous saline water outdoor pool that runs with just the perfect temperature, take a nap on the hammock or relax near the outdoor bar & grill.

You won't be sorry, this place is a true Gem!!!
