We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, David and the turtles. David even had us over to the farm to see the garden and talapia pond. Cool stuff. Mama's Fish House is expensive but serves great food. The view there is second only to that of our room. The time here felt more like a visit to a friend's cottage. This is... More

Great common area shared bed and breakfast, perfect view, friendly host. Gave us great recommendations locally, don't stay here if you don't like to fall asleep hearing the ocean. We woke up to a rainbow and turtles everywhere, location is beach front.

My wife, daughters(age 24 and 27), and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location right on a beautiful sandy beach, 20 feet outside our bottom floor ocean front suite, with turtles and no condos in view was perfect for what we wanted. The house is kind of retro 70's but that added to the charm of the place. Large kitchen... More

Recently had 4 nights here. In my opinion this place is very overpriced for the condition of the property. The concept is great but the lack of any management or host makes things a little uncomfortable. The host "appears" from time to time - he doesnt actually live at the house so you have to rely on other guests to... More

Aloha Kay, Thanks for your review as well as your husband’s that was posted approximately four days before yours. We disagree completely with your analysis of management. We do reside on the property and happened to be at another property due to having family from the mainland visiting while you were here. We did have a note posted at the... More

This place could be really good if better managed and if it had a good clean. There are 6 rooms which vary in quality. It would be a good place for a large group to rest and do their own thing in. Good location on the beach and walking distance to town. Communicating with the manager by phone or email... More

Aloha Rod, Thanks for your review. Just some clarification for future guests so that there is no confusion! We do not offer a shuttle service for our guests and when we say meet and greet at the property that usually means within reasonable hours of the day. You did show up at midnight and when we did receive a call... More

We recently got married at the Blue Tile Beach House. The pictures are much cleaner/nicer/more modern than what the house is like in real life. We called the house our 70s Porn House because that is exactly the way it felt inside. There was something kind of unique and fun about it though... Since we were a large group that... More

Thanks for your review. Although we are a little shocked as we thought you might be a little more gracious in your review as we ended up being your last minute wedding venue since the place up the street would not accommodate that for you. Thank goodness for the Blue Tile Beach House…..right? We wish that you would have informed... More

I just stayed 6 nights at the blue tile and it was really amazing. The location could not be better; walking distance to Paia, beautiful sandy beach with turtles right on the doorstep, and very accommodating friendly staff. The kitchen was very large and the fridge stocked with all kinds of food we could help ourselves to. Also fully equipped... More

Spent one night here, on a whirlwind tour of Maui, and this was our favorite accommodation of the trip. David was great at giving us the lay of the land, and good recommendations, but also not stepping on our toes when we insisted on an ill-advised trip to Mama's Fish House (mediocre, grossly-overpriced food) for dinner. He and Jency were... More

The owner David is a wonderfully hospitable, intelligent, charismatic business man, and these qualities are completely reflected in his establishment, The Blue Tile Beach House. At first glance, the outside looks like an average home. Slightly unkempt and a bit bland. Upon entering the home however, you are reminded of the saying, "don't judge a book by it's cover". The...

Such a nice time over there ! Just the best mix of luxury and open mind place. First the view and the room was amazing ( HONU UPSTAIRS suite ) but what made that journey unforgettable was the warmness of our hosts David and Jency. We had good breakfast and such a nice dinner of Mahi Mahi with lilikoi (... More
