About Stacy

Don Nelson is a retired NBA basketball coach and player. Joy Nelson loves to paddle outrigger canoes and may take you along.

We went to Maui on our honeymoon and fell in love with the island. We lovingly built the home in Kihei on the south side and lived there off and on for 15 years while working. Now that we are retired we live on the north shore in Paia, next door to the rental cottages. We love sharing the tropical beauty and ambiance of Maui with others.

Stacy purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Stacy chose Paia

Why you should book one of these pieces of paradise? The views are incredible, on both sides of the island. Maui has been named the best island in the world several times by Conde’ Nast. You will enjoy your privacy, while being able to walk to nearby shops and restaurants.

Perfect location, vintage cottage

  • 5 of 5

Palm Cottage is in the perfect location in the town of Paia, close to the action and yet you can hear none of it at the cottage. All you hear is the sound of the pounding surf! This is exactly the way this family of four needed to end our final week in Maui. We have 2 teens and they loved the freedom of walking to the beach, the stores, and the restaurants on their own. The cottage is decorated with original artwork. We watched the turtles on the beach and in the water nearly every day.

Fantastic Oceanfront Hideaway in Paia

  • 4 of 5

Great cottage right off the ocean. Ideal for families as the kitchen was fully equipped, making cooking 'at home' easy. Fully covered veranda facing the ocean and big waves of the North Shore, and excellent grounds with lots of outdoor recliners. Well maintained, and great response from Stacy the manager. Would have given it five stars, but getting rental gear (bikes, board) could more easily convenient and accessible. All in all, one of our best stays in Maui (and we've been a few times with the family).

Paradise in Paia!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Palm Cottage was wonderful! Besides the spectacular views and convenient location it was extremely comfortable and private! It was hard to believe the many shops and restaurants of Paia were just steps away!

This property is truly a gem and we will certainly recommend it to all our friends who visit Maui (and we hope to be able to stay there when we come back to visit our son)!

A lovely cottage right in the heart of Paia and right on the ocean

  • 4 of 5

This place ticked all the boxes and was exactly what we needed. We could see turtles from our deck and swam with them and snorkelled as well ! Latter in the week we could watch surfers catching waves. The cafes and shops in Paia were awesome and everyone were so friendly. Highly recommended !

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for our family! The first day we were there we saw a dozen turtles in the ocean right behind the house. Over the next week we saw turtles every day. We walked to the next beach over which was about 20 yards away. The picturesque white sandy beach with an occasional turtle swimming by (we got to swim with it)!

The house was cozy and had all the amenities we needed. I thought there would be more bugs with it being so close to the ocean but it was surprisingly free of them. Probably because of all the geckos around. One day the gate was broken and one of the neighbors called the property manager and she had it fixed promptly.

The town of Pa'ia is small but busy. Perfect for a quick walk to the grocery store a block away or a night out at the local pub with live music.

The neighbors are vacation rentals so we got to know them pretty well and the houses are far enough away that you had your own space and didn't hear them.

If we ever get a chance to go back we will definitely try to get this house again! Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to stay in this house.

Amazing location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location to enjoy the beach and Paia town. Beautiful lawn area shared by a couple units overlooking the lava rock beach. Walk 100M down the retaining wall, down the steps and you are on beautiful Paia beach. Walk out the front gate and you are in the middle of Paia town. Basic beach cottage with comfortable beds, air conditioners in all rooms and nice private lanai overlooking the lawn and rock beach. Stacy was great, definitely going back
