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.

Villa Paola is worthy of six stars, which would represent “Perfect”. The photos and the description can’t possibly do it justice, because you can’t see tranquility, serenity, and privacy in a photo. Not only is the property immaculate and clean, it is filled with beautiful art not only hanging on the walls, but in the creative design of the home. Perhaps the most attractive feature of this property is the chlorine free saline pool in the secluded, lushly landscaped, private backyard. The owners, Marcello and Alessio live on site and are available to offer assistance if needed, but otherwise they are rarely seen. To be honest, we hesitate to recommend this property simply because it likely to make it harder for us to reserve a date in the future. This was our second stay and we are already trying to figure out how soon we can afford to return.
My Response
Thank you so much. We are so glad you had a great time and look forward to your return! Ciao, The Twins

All the other reviews say it all, so we will just say that quiet at night is very important to us, as we are light sleepers. The villa was absolutely serene. We have already booked for next March.

We were very fortunate to run across this home. Of course visiting Hawaii is a wonderful experience, but having an opportunity to stay in the Twins rental house ehanced our trip beyond words. We could seriously visit Maui and just kick back and relax everyday without leaving the home. Marcello and Alessio were so warm, kind and welcoming. We have gained two new friends and a new love and appreciation for italian food and art!!
If you want a truly classy, immaculantly clean home, the warmest hospitality and a memory of a lifetime – stay with the Twins. Grazie!!!!

Very pleased with this rental. The unit was spotless and well stocked. The craftsmanship and custom artwork was amazing. The large saline pool was perfect for swimming laps or reading on one of the inflatable chaise lounges. The Twins (owners) were charming with great suggestions for day trips and restaurants. Can’t wait to come back. Grazie!

Maui in September at Villa Paola

Date of Stay
September 4, 2013
From the moment we arrived tired and worn out from our long flight across the country; we were greeted by our generous and gracious host Marcello. His Villa is everything pictured in the photos on the VRBO website and more. We really didn’t expect it to be as lovely as it is depicted in the pictures, but it was everything and more. Anything we needed was in the Villa and at our disposal for our use during our stay. The rooms were immaculate and very well maintained. Our hosts were at our disposal to answer any questions and make suggestions for local eats and entertainment. I would highly recommend anyone looking for accommodations in Maui Meadows to consider renting Villa Paola. It is perfect for a couple (as we were).

Look no further….the Perfect Place in Maui!

Date of Stay
September 4, 2013
We rented 11 nights, 9/4 – 9/15/13 to visit family. Villa Paola affords couples the ultimate vacation escape. Everything is provided to make you feel at home, and is clean and well-maintained. Allessio and Marcello are the most gracious hosts/owners and left no “tile”unturned in creating their own piece of paradise, just for you, tucked away from crowded condo properties and busy South Kihei Rd., but easy access to Pi’ilani Hwy and you are close to grocery stores, and shops, beaches, and restaurants. (Do try Monkeypod during happy hour!) Having your own private pool was a bonus — a great way to start or unwind at the end of your day (as were the 2 outdoor showers.) The twins artwork is impressive — take a tour of their studio if you can. The villa, and beautiful outdoor spaces are exactly as the photos show, and I highly recommend this Villa. Darcy is wonderful agent to work with as well. We will see you in 2016 (and if I get MY way, sooner!)

We were the luckiest people to be able to stay at the Villa Paola in Maui! Marcello and Alesio are the nicest people. They were so warm, helpful, and gave us whatever we asked for! There is so much we can write about our beautiful stay at the Vila: The House, the room, the pool, the service, etc etc, everything was beyond amazing. Thank you so much dear twins! May you give many people the opportunity to experience magnificent Maui in your beautiful villa. G-d Bless You Both!!

My sister and myself with husbands in tow thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the villa. Alessio and Marcello have done a beautiful job of making their home a perfect oasis for vacationers. Beautiful bathroom,a private pool, a lovely veranda and bar with a B-B-Q, tasteful furnishings, peaceful surroundings conducive to reading and relaxing, and so much more all added up to a wonderful and memorable stay. Thank you, Alessio and Marcello, for allowing us to enjoy your home.

Great Villa!

Date of Stay
August 28, 2012
We stayed here while in Maui for a family wedding. The layout is perfect for a couple – having their own private area. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful yet a 5 min. drive to grocery stores, restaurants and shopping. We spent the majority of our time outdoors on the wonderful lanai or enjoying the great pool. Great to see all the twins art work displayed in the villa. Although we didn’t do a lot of cooking it was very well equipped – great outdoor grill and all kitchen appliances you would need. Would definitely return in the future.

Met All Expectations!

Date of Stay
April 10, 2012
This is an absolutely lovely vacation home — very meticulous, and well decorated with upscale design work throughout the house! I would highly recommend staying here for not only the accomodations, but also for the ideal location, right on the border of Wailea and very close to the beach parks for terrific snorkeling. The salt water in-ground pool is spectacular and super clean if you prefer this to ocean swimming. I enjoyed chatting with Marcello and admiring the twins’ artwork, which is displayed in all rooms of the guest house. I am extremely picky by nature, so my five star rating is well deserved. This option is far superior to staying in a local hotel room, which is not only more expensive, but less private and lacks access to a kitchen, outdoor grill, and covered patio!

Perfect Place to Stay in Maui

Date of Stay
March 6, 2012
We had a wonderful time staying with another couple at Villa Paola in Maui. The home exceeded our expectations in every way. You can tell when an owner takes great pride in their property. Alessio and Marcello clearly do.
The location of the home is close enough to the highway that it has easy access to most of what Maui has to offer. However, it is far enough away you feel secluded. The pool is enclosed and offers plenty of privacy. We ended up using it almost every day to cool off after spending time in the sun. The neighborhood felt safe and we had a place to park our rental car off the street.
The amenities were well taken care of. We had access to pretty much anything you would need on Maui. The washer and dryer should allow for reuse of your clothing, so tell your spouses they don’t need to overpack!
We had a wonderful time and hope to stay here again when we return to Maui, hopefully sooner rather than later!

A Little Piece of Heaven

Date of Stay
November 18, 2011
At the end of November, 2011 we spent 8 wonderful days at Villa Paola celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and can’t possibly say enough about our experience. The accommodations were impeccable, from the beautiful, original artwork to the intricately designed tile patterns throughout. The property surrounding the villa is beautifully landscaped, complete with saltwater pool, providing you with your own private oasis when you are not enjoying the island. It was clear to us that the Twins not only take great pride in their property but do everything they can to ensure your stay is replete with every amenity. We went to Maui expecting a comfortable place to stay and left having enjoyed 5* accommodations!
Everything we needed to enjoy our time in Maui was at our disposal. All the necessities were provided to us during our stay, ensuring our time was worry free and spent enjoying the property and the beauty of the island.
We would like to thank the twins for a wonderful stay – one that we will not forget and which we hope to repeat sometime soon!

Marcello is the perfect host. The grounds, accomodations, fruit trees, artwork and pool were better than we hoped for. The original artwork was beautiful beyond any expectation. The exceptional photos of the property understate the reality. We can’t wait to return.

We had a wonderful time staying in this beautiful villa. It was far enough removed from the hustle and bustle and a great place to relax in the pool if the waves were too high to snorkel or just a great place to relax period.
The twins do everything to make your stay enjoyable and on top of that you get a feast for your eyes with all of their lovely paintings that decorate the villa.
The pool water is so soft and luxurious you will never want to get out!
If you are tired of staying in a Condo or hotel this is an amazing alternative, and the best thing about your stay will be meeting the Twins!

Visit to Maui and Villa Paula – What a stay!

Date of Stay
August 1, 2011
Marcello, Alessio & Darcy,
Like so many others before us, we enjoyed Villa Paola immensely. What a Villa! The lanai was our favorite spot. We would sit for hours in the evening enjoying the surroundings, the quiet and the outstanding work you have done on the place. Every detail has been thought of. We had a blast in Maui and a large part of that fun was coming back “home” to Villa Paola each evening.
Your personal touches and friendly hosting was much appreciated. If we needed something you were there to help. At the same time we had complete privacy. Our family loved your home.
We would enjoy a return visit some day. Hopefully we can make that happen. This is THE PLACE to stay in Maui.
Speranza di verdelo Presto!

Date of Stay
June 14, 2011
We were met by the owners (The Twins) when we checked in, and they made us feel right at home. The Villa itself is beautiful, but the artwork (all done by The Twins) is breathtaking! I found myself wandering through the house to look at each of the paintings multiple times during our stay. The Lanai is just as nice as the villa itself, we sat out just about every evening with a glass of wine, and every morning for breakfast. It was very relaxing and comfortable. The other nice thing is that it is very central to just about everything you might want to do on Maui, minutes away from some of the best restaurants and nice beaches!
If we are lucky enough to return to Maui, I wouldn’t hesitate to book Villa Paola again.

Marcello & Alessio,
Villa Paola met all our expectations and more! We had a wonderfully relaxing vacation during our five day stay at your house. After three busy days in Oahu, we enjoyed the quiet luxury of laying by the pool, snorkeling at so many beautiful beaches on the southern shore, and watching the sunset as we strolled along the scenic walking path just minutes down the road. The Italian decor was lovely. You have added so much character to your home with your vision of bringing a little bit of Europe to Hawaii. I enjoyed being surrounded by your beautiful art each day; I felt as if I was in the Lourve! Thank you so much for making our anniversary so special. You are both extremely talented!!

This villa is tastefully decorated and excellent value for money. The Twins are fun and give you as much space as you want. The layout is a little unusual and the bedroom is a little small and not truly “en-suite” as you have to into a common area. This though is the only negative point and did not detract from the overall enjoyment. Well worth the money compared to others we looked at and would stay there again if we went back to Maui. Great for a couple who want to relax.

Marcello, Allesio, and Daniela are gracious, thoughtful & accommodating hosts. We were completely refreshed after our stay in their cottage. The privacy and location made our time on Maui an experience we will remember with fondness. We enjoyed an incredible evening at Cafe Ciao on their recommendation; having “locals” as a guide is priceless!We hope to return and will certainly share this contact with our friends. As B&B owners we especially appreciate the attention they have put into all the details!

We stayed here in September 2006 and it was
heavenly! Marcello was a great host (Alessio and
Danielle were out of town) and the cottage is
wonderful. Very clean, room, and well thought out
down to the smallest details. The bathroom was
wonderful! We enjoyed reading in the sun in our
private yard, as well as swimming in the pool. As
someone else said, to stay somewhere else would
be crazy! This place is awesome. We will definitely
return with friends!
