“A Fabulous Stay”
Reviewed 5 June 2013

We spent 6 nights staying in the cottage and we loved every minute! It was quiet and peaceful and the cottage is set in a beautiful garden, with every amenity you might need - even a hairdryer! Rick and Dale are wonderful hosts and made us feel right at home. They were unobtrusive yet on hand if we needed anything. Monkey Boy the cat hung around outside and was always up for a cuddle. We just didn't want to leave this place - we are already planning our next trip to Maui and we would not go anywhere else but Eva Villa. Mahalo Rick and Dale, for helping to make our trip so enjoyable!

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! The only way to describe the experience we had at Rick and Dale’s Eva Villa BnB! We stayed in the private cottage from Apri 23rd to May 2nd, a total 9 nights and loved every moment! We were in Maui for our wedding and then honeymoon and Rick & Dale made sure that we enjoyed our entire stay! First let me say, we are in our mid to late twenties' and this is wonderful place is for all ages, especially if you are looking for a more romantic/private feel away from the touristy resort area (though Eva Villa is only 5 mins. from some of Maui's best beaches). Eva Villa was our tropical oasis!

When we first arrived we were greeted with Rick's warm welcoming smile! He has a way of making you feel like family. He introduced himself, showed us around our cottage, then went over some local restaurants, things to do, pretty much helped us plan our entire trip! He also was so sweet and had champagne and a card waiting for us. My sister had called him and asked if he could buy these items as a wedding gift to us. He even wrote in the card for her. C'mon, who does that? Just so sweet! Let me also mention, even before we arrived Rick & Dale were so helpful through email. They told us where to find the cheapest rental car, explained that it would be best to buy tickets for our Luau ahead of time because they sell out, and answered all sorts of other questions we had.

What I loved most about our stay were the beautiful early mornings. You wake up to the birds singing right outside your window. So enchanting! We would fill the bird feeder and would watch the finches eat away. We had fresh fruit every morning, yummy bagels and muffins, and delicious coffee. This place really feels like home!

Rick & Dale do give you your privacy and ask you to contact them when you need more fruit, or breakfast items. We had made a joke about wanting a papaya because we had just finished the last one, and literally the next morning Rick went to the market and got us papaya! You can tell Rick & Dale have a lot of pride in Eva Villa and in what they do.

The day we were leaving we had to check out by 10am because there were guests coming in after us. We had about 4 hours to burn before we had to head to the airport and Rick & Dale let us come back and shower in one of their empty suites after spending the afternoon at the beach. How freaking nice? You don't find that type of hospitality just anywhere. I highly recommend this place to anyone. We hope to return for a future anniversary.

Things I loved: Beautiful neighborhood (great for running, awesome hills), close to beaches, close to great restaurants, fully equipped kitchen (we cooked dinners a few night and had everything we needed), affordable, Monkey Boy(the sweet cottage cat), Hot tub & Pool, outside shower, washer & dryer, beautiful grounds, Extremely clean, Plenty of soft towels, and Rick & Dale(Two of the sweetest people in all of Maui)!

Cons: There are none!

Room Tip: -Cottage is separate from the main house. Very private and romantic.

My husband and I spent 2 weeks at the cottage at the Eva Villa for our 10 year anniversary and had an absolutely wonderful time! We arrived very tired, after traveling from the east coast and Rick welcomed us and showed us the cottage quickly and had us just go to bed and talk to him the next day. We woke up in paradise! The grounds are absolutely beautiful! Dale sat down with us on our first full day there and went over great places to visit, beaches that were nearby, good places to eat and answered any questions that we had. We had breakfast of bagels, cream cheese, fresh fruit (delicious pineapple), granola, and muffins that appeared in our fridge everyday! Rick and Dale were fabulous hosts. They were there if we needed them but also gave us our privacy. It was fantastic to have our own place with a full kitchen, washer/dryer, and comfy bed. The place is not new but well taken care of, very clean, and has everything you need! My only recommendation would be to update some of the extras...maybe a new umbrella, snorkel equipment and some big beach towels. We loved staying at the Eva Villa and would definitely recommend it to our friends and hopefully we can come back and visit again sometime. It was a very relaxing fun 2 weeks!

We stayed at Rick and Dale's beautiful Eva Villa in their Ohana Cottage, Feb. 24 for 4 nights. On arrival Rick greeted us, gave a tour of the beautiful cottage and its many amenities, gave recommendations on restaurants and places of interest. Rick or Dale were available for most any little thing we needed. The cottage is in a relaxing and tropical setting away from their main house (which has two other accommodations on the first floor). The tropical landscaped property included a swimming pool and hot tub .
Eva Villa is a wonderful place to stay in a beautiful neighborhood and we hope to get a chance to stay again in the future at this tropical paradise.

Room Tip: Cottage has its own washer and dryer.

We have been coming to Maui for close to 25 years and have stayed in everything from 5 star resorts to 2 star condos and everything in between. After so many trips, getting away from the "tourist scene" and into the local neighborhoods has become our preferred vacation stay. We are particularly fond of the Maui Meadows area which is where Eva Villa is located. My husband and I stayed in the ohana (cottage) and our friends split their stay between the two apartments located off the pool area on the main level of the main house. We were there for 19 enjoyable days. Rick and Dale are the consummate hosts - making sure all details are attended to without being obtrusive. By the time we left, we felt like we had made friends for life. All the beds were brand new and extremely comfortable, the linens were high thread count, and the towels (bath and beach) were nice and fluffy. Everything was there that you could possibly want for the beach (snorkle gear, beach chairs and umbrellas, cooler, boogie boards). The ohana has a washer and dryer which allowed us to pack light and do laundry as needed. The kitchen, although small, had everything we needed and Rick and Dale kept us stocked with fresh fruit, pineapple, bagels, muffins, cream cheese, and coffee. They even provide a Brita filtered water pitcher which we thought was a great touch. We spent most of our time outside on the lanai (deck) that has a large glass-top table with an umbrella and 4 chairs. There's also a small gas grill and if needed, a larger one by the pool/hot tub area. We loved putting bird seed in the feeder every day and having a dozen or more Java finches descend immediately, ignoring us humans who were mere feet away. And then our favorite Eva Villa resident of all - Monkey Boy, the big yellow cat who I most despartely wanted to stuff in my bag and bring home. He's not allowed inside the ohana but he spends hours lounging around outside, always in ear shot when we called him to come for treats. What a sweetie!! Anyway, I can't recommend Eva Villa enough. If you want to experience your own piece of Maui in a beautiful, serene setting where you can kick back and relax, look no further. But book early! They are very popular and this was the first time in several years of trying that they actually had a vacancy for the time we needed! Mahalo nui loa, Rick and Dale ... a hui hou!

We have stayed here three times and it is our favorite place to stay in Hawaii. We've been in all three rooms. All have lots of space and are very comfortable with a full kitchen, access to washer/dryer and beach gear. This helps to save lots of money.

We love the hosts, Rick and Dale. Talk about Aloha spirit! They went out of their way to help us and checked on us every day to see if we needed anything. Want to feel like you are visiting family? Stay here.

Just returned from a too-short visit to Maui - and Eva Villa was a perfect starting point for all of our island travels. We really weren't there all that much - but when we were, both Rick and Dale were great hosts, willing to answer questions and offer suggestions for how to enjoy Maui and get some relaxation at the same time. The hot tub was great, too! Beach chairs/towels, and other gear is also available for use, if needed.

Unlike a typical B&B, there's no set "Breakfast time" - rather, Rick & Dale provide light breakfast items in the fridge, such as Bagels, muffins, and fruit, to be enjoyed as desired. Especially, wonderful pineapple! So if you're looking for a formal meal, this isn't it, but it's exactly what we were looking for.

Eva Villa was a great choice for our getaway, and I would gladly return if our travels bring us back to Maui. It actually gives more of a "home" feel - it's as if we lived there!
