“Maui Hidden Gem”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

This is a magical place. We loved this place! There is no other place I would want to stay in Maui. David and Bev are great! Highly recommend it!
We stayed there for 4 nights and we cannot wait to go back again! David has been a friend and great host even after we left!

David and Bev's place was a wonderful getaway for this family of three. Our 7 year old daughter looked forward to arriving back at "Bev's Place" at the end of each day. We watched the stars from the hot tub, the sweeping views from Haleakala to the ocean, enjoyed fresh fruit from their gardens, and appreciated all the special touches they had in place for us. The location was perfect for us, off the beaten path but close enough to enjoy the entire island. Every morning we were greeted by a quick rain and a rainbow, reminding us how the lush green beauty in the area is made. David and Bev provided were gracious hosts, making sure we were comfortable and content. We couldn't ask for anything better.

We have stayed at Maui Tradewinds three times, the fourth time just this last November. What a joy it is to have Maui Tradewinds as our temporary home when we are in Hawaii. The house was immaculate and stocked with everything we needed (clean linens constantly, our favorite teas, our favorite cereal and crackers, extra pillows, cleaning supplies if we wanted, beach necessities, everything was provided). The view off the deck is absolutely gorgeous—we had dinner/snacks there every evening. Turn your head slightly to the right; there’s the ocean. The bed (master bedroom) was so comfortable, it was like sleeping on a cloud. The location of Maui Tradewinds can’t be beat—close to Paia (interesting shops, Mana Foods (best co-op in the world—their salad bar has the most flavorful vegetables I’ve ever tasted), surfing, turtle-watching by the ocean every evening, and world-class restaurants (think Mama’s Fish House, and then don’t just think it, go there)). Even though Maui Tradewinds is close to amenities, it’s also extremely quiet. Very peaceful sleeping.
The hot tub out on the deck (overlooking paradise) is comfortable and CLEAN. Dinner can be grilled behind the cottage, complete with tiki torches. Inside the house, tap water goes through an extra filter. So in case you usually drink bottled water, here you don’t have to (an extra benefit).
Because of all of Bev and David’s attention to detail, all we had to do was relax and soak up the Polynesian paradise. The relaxed state-of-mind induced at Maui Tradewinds lasted all the way through the holiday season for me. Can’t wait to go back!!!

I have been to Maui many times and have come to love the Haiku Upcountry area away from all the high rise hotels in the West. Having lived on Oahu and traveled to most of the other islands, I find Maui the most beautiful. And I have now found the most beautiful way to enjoy this island: by staying at the Maui Tradewinds. To be able to sit in any room and look out over the jungle, up the slopes of Haleakala, see the stars at night and birds by day...this is my idea of heaven. The hosts, Bev and David, designed a lovely home away from home with every amenity imaginable. You really feel like you are being "hosted" when you are there with their attention to detail and beauty and their personal warmth and consideration for your well being. Come prepared to stay; after a few trips into the more touristy areas you might decide, like I did, to unplug and give yourself over to island time.

Over the last 35 years of vacationing in the islands, we have stayed in a variety of cottage rentals. We prefer the "aloha" local experience to staying in a resort. Bev and David's Tradewinds Suite, is without comparison. The privacy, the spa under the stars, the ability to barbecue fresh, local fish in your own yard and then eat under the light of 3-sets of Tiki Torches as well as lounging on a hammock for two. Best part- showering outdoors - again in you own private setting with a 180 degree view of the Real Maui. Immediately upon our return in October, we booked another 15-days for May 2014- Maui Tradewinds No Ka Oi!

This was my first visit to Maui. I found and booked the StarWind Cottage online, and arrived with fingers crossed hoping the reality would be as good as the photos and reviews promised. It exceeded my expectations. What a great place -- airy, clean, beautiful views, and comfortable, pleasingly attractive furnishings. It even passed my personal litmus test, with a bedside lamp I could read by!

The hosts have thought of and provided just about every amenity a guest could possibly need. Picnic cooler? -- check. Scotch tape? -- check. Cotton blanket, since I'm sensitive to acrylic? -- check. Coffee filters? -- check. You name it, Bev and David have thought of it, and it will be found in a logical spot right where you might keep the item at home.

As others have commented, Bev and David are the perfect hosts. They checked in occasionally to see if we needed anything, were friendly and responsive when we had questions, but were never intrusive. The entire visit felt like staying in the home of friends. We enjoyed all their suggestions and recommendations -- Mana Foods in Haiku for delicious deli takeout, the Saturday swap meet, Holo Holo Private Taxi Tours for a fun and informative afternoon tour, Troy for in-room massage.

For our last evening, we cancelled dinner reservations at Mama's Fish House, preferring to enjoy one last sunset on the deck with Mana Food takeout. All in all, the absolutely perfect getaway vacation spot. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when I return.

We only booked a few days here, as we weren't sure what to expect, but wish we had booked it for our whole holiday.
The setting is beautiful and quite private. You can watch the sun come up behind the mountains, and set behind the West Maui mountains. Haleakela seems at your fingertips. It was lovely to laze in the hot tub and star-gaze.
The cottage is beautifully decorated and very clean. Everything you could want is there. We even had fruit from their own garden.
Bev and Dave are very friendly and do everything possible to make your stay enjoyable.
When we left, we came over to the west side of the island and didn't like it very much. We wanted to come right back, but alas! it was booked.
