Guestbook comments from the manager

Aloha! Just a quick email to let you know how much we enjoyed our vacation on Maui. We had a wonderful time and the cottage was fabulous. Frankie and Dan made us feel very welcome, checking in with us to make sure everything was going well, but totally gave us our space. They were very accommodating on our final day as our flight didn’t leave Maui until late that evening, they told us to go out and enjoy the day and leave our luggage at the cottage. That afternoon we came back to the cottage and were able to have a shower and be fresh our 14 hour trip home. The Luau was great. Thanks so much to concierge services for taking care of this for us. I will recommend the Bird of Paradise Cottage to whomever may be interested.

Paradise in Maui

  • 5 of 5

My family of 3 (my 65-year old mother, myself and my 6-year old daughter) stayed at this property recently for 15 nights. It was simply fantastic. The cottage is incredibly clean, comfortable and well-stocked with everything you could need. It is bright and airy and the central AC means the temperature is always perfect, while not being noisy at all. We ate all our breakfasts and dinners outside, enjoying the ocean view, the birds and the geckos. We swam every day and *loved* the bonus of having the hot tub. Frankie is a super host...I feel we have honestly made a friend for life. Dan is great, too, just a bit more reserved. :) The location is great and the neighbourhood is very peaceful. I can't go on enough about it, really! When we return to Maui, we will absolutely book here again.

Stay Here! We loved it.

The Cottage:

We opened the front door and knew we had made the right choice. The Bird of Paradise Cottage is the perfect place to stay.

Perched up on the hillside in Wailea, the pictures could never do the view justice. Each morning we watched the sunrise, and each evening came with amazing views of the sun setting behind Molokini and Kaho'olawe.

The home is in fantastic shape, it feels like it was just built (maybe it was). It also has EVERYTHING that you need. I personally don't like staying in hotels because you have no way to cook for yourself and at best the hotel rooms are a few hundred square feet. The Bird of Paradise Cottage has all the plates, dishes, cups, pots and martini glasses you need plus the amenities of a hotel. We didn't have to go to the store for anything except for the food we wanted to eat. They also have a brand new washer and dryer which is a huge plus. We didn't even need to purchase sand toys or snorkel gear as it all came with the home.

The view from the cottage is fantastic, but the view from the pool is even better. The pool is an amazing place to spend your time as you can see over all of Wailea and the ocean below.

The Service:

From the first time I spoke with Private Paradise Villas (formerly Tropical Villa Vacations), the service was great - working with them is a no brainer. Yvonne, the concierge, was amazing and very helpful.

At the home, Frankie and Dan (the homeowners) are literally the type of people you want to meet on a vacation. They made recommendations of places to visit, provided smores by the fire for our son, and made sure we knew how to use the spa, pool lights, etc. I really cannot say enough about what amazing people they are.

The Location:

I highly advise staying here, at this cottage, and in Wailea as opposed to an area like Lahaina. You're minutes away from amazing beaches, and you won't feel like you're staying in an overpriced, over crowded resort.

You're in paradise at this home!!

Amazing Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

Bird of Paradise is truly Paradise! Right from the start we had amazing service when booking our reservation through Tropical Villa Vacations with excellent information provided on the 'little extra's' they offer to making sure everything was just what he wanted and by far exceeding any needs! We arrived late at night and the cottage was well lit, easy to find and Frankie had delicious fresh loaves and juice waiting for us...there was even music playing to greet us! Frankie and Dan spoiled us immensely and are the kindest people you will meet. The cottage is stocked with everything and more that we needed and the set up is perfect for families. They have added a fire pit on an additional deck just off the pool and after evening swims we enjoyed smores and sunsets by the fire. I can't say enough about this location but I do know we will return!

Holidays in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Bird of Paradise cottage was a wonderful way to mark the holiday season -- we especially liked being able to see the ocean and the sunsets while being far enough away from the crowds to be perfectly quiet, enjoy watching the multitudes of stars at night, and listen to the birds’ concerts in the mornings. The cottage is small but perfect -- the pool and hot tub are amazing -- the hosts are very friendly and provide many extras to meet your needs while being respectful of their guests’ desire (or not) for privacy. We loved it -- thanks to Tropical Villa Vacations for managing the property.
