Honeymoon in Paradise!Posted Nov 22, 2013
Pros: Everything was fantastic!
Cons: Mosquitoes were the only downfall, but nothing that the hotel can do about them.
Location: The location is close to downtown Paia, many restaurants there. We went ziplining, did a dinner cruise with Ali Nui, we drove the West unpaved road.
Out of our two week stay in various location in Hawaii, for our Honeymoon, this was by far our favorite place to stay. The second floor suite was beautiful. The view, the sound of the ocean and breeze was second to none. The bed was extremely comfortable, the room is beautiful and loved that they offer a fully stock fridge that you can prepare meals at your own leisure. The staff is very friendly and were able to work with friends from back home to surprise us with a sunset dinner cruise. Can't wait to stay here again...

Good location, but not really a B and BPosted Oct 17, 2013
Pros: location, courtyard, price, hosts were nice
Cons: the front of the house could look nicer for a better first impression. Clean up the bathrooms a little.
Location: Mama's Fish House, Hookipa Beach, town of Paia, near upcountry and road to Hana
We recently stayed for 3 nights at the Blue Tile Beach House. It is in a wonderful location right next to the beach in Paia. When we pulled up to the House, we thought they were closed! There was a big sign saying they were waiting to be approved for B and B. There were parts (ceiling fan, etc) in the front. Inside the house was nice and there is a beautiful courtyard with a fountain. We were in the sunset room and it was nice with a lanai and ensuite bathroom, but the shower/tub did have rust. There was a clicking noise all night long, so we opened the slider to try and have the ocean drown out the noise. You could buy your own groceries and store them in the frig and cook, so I wouldn't technically say this is a B and B. I think they are working on fixing up the place, so it has good bones and should be amazing once cleaned and fixed up. The price is right and location is right, so keep that in mind.

Great local feel, beware of Expedia PicturesPosted May 13, 2013
Pros: Atmosphere- local Hawaiian feel. Read that as rustic, friendly, easy going, the sound of ocean waves and gekos, fresh tropical fruit and no frills.
Cons: Well, if your are looking for frills, sparkling cleanliness, or air conditioning, this is not the place for you.
Location: Paia is a neat little town with good access to north shore beaches and activities.
We really loved our stay at the Blue Tile Beach House, but many of the pictures posted on Expedia and Tripadvisor are not labled correctly. Nicely stocked fridge and kitchen. We made use of the juicer, rice maker, gas grill, all the extras needed for cooking your own food like spices, olive oil, fresh garlic butter, milk, etc. Enjoyable courtyard, instant beach access, sand toys for the kids, beach towels provided, reserved parking. Staff was helpful and enjoyable. I really felt like I was staying at a friends house. We stayed in the Plumeria room, which would be okay for a couple, but it was too small for us with our 5-year old. Some pictures on the internet led me to believe that the Plumeria Room was one of the front 2 rooms that are right on the water. That was not the case so we were very disappointed when first directed to our room. The staff was apologetic but powerless to do anything about it other than offer a refund if we wanted it (we stayed anyway). So here is the room low-down: Upper and lower Suites are the ONLY big rooms and the only rooms we would stay in if going back. Both are equally nice. Lower has Queen bed and Futon with a Sauna. Upper has King bed and the blue tile bath. Plumeria and Sunset Rooms are much smaller but the next choices on the list. They are in the Back of the house but each have private decks with courtyard and ocean views. The other rooms are smaller still and lack ocean views.

A tranquil and wonderful beach havenPosted May 11, 2013
Pros: Location and innkeepers
Location: Idyllic setting overlooking a small sandy beach.
The Blue Tile has a beautiful location on a Maui beach. It is managed by two exceptionally helpful and attentive people... Alexis and Erik. They made every possible effort to make us welcome and comfortable.

Exchanging of AdventuresPosted Feb 26, 2013
Pros: The B&B was ON the ocean and it had an area above that was grass in case you weren't a beach person and still see the turtles and waves w/o the sand.
Cons: Not convinced the bed was a Queen as advertised, a bit small.
Location: Was close to Paia, Maui, HI (still need a car) with lots of restaurants and shops.
It is a B&B, so the exchange of adventures with others there was quite rewarding. We actually went to a Luau with one of the couples there. Great fun! Also, one of the couples went to a nature area and recommended it to us, glad we went, we would have missed one of the great views in Maui.

Great alternative to a hotelPosted Feb 23, 2013
Pros: The comfortable atmosphere, being able to cook your own meals, talking with the other guests
Cons: The bathroom in the Waterfall Room was a bit small
Location: Perfect for exploring the less populated and wetter side of the island; can't miss it if going on the trek to Hana.
This wasn't your typical bed and breakfast, it was much more like visiting a friend's beach home. Sharing a kitchen was easy, fixing your own food was very convenient, and having access to the large home was perfect. The property managers, Alexis and Eric, were the perfect hosts; always available while giving a person the feeling of being watched. The home is actually two houses that have been conjoined into one very large living space. The upstairs and downstairs have vaulted ceilings and are decorated with a bit of Polynesia or Bali in mind. The grounds are private and have a lovely table and chair area overlooking the ocean; you can easily access the beach from property. The location is in Paia, at the beginning of the infamous Road to Hana; yes, there is traffic out from but we honestly never heard it after it was dark. Paia is a small, very laid back little beach town. The offerings are limited to one grocery store, local merchants, and several excellent places to dine. Be sure to check out Mana Foods on Baldwin Avenue. My husband and I will definitely go back to the Blue Tile Beach House; we were very comfortable there and loved the ability to cook our own meals. Alexis and Eric will make you feel at home.

Blue Tile - a little bit of heaven in PaiaPosted Jan 29, 2013 on Hotels.com
I've stayed at a dozen or more Maui hotels and guest houses. You may have a nice ocean view from the big resorts but you won't be steps from a great beach with few or no tourists in site like you will at the Blue Tile Inn. Paia is the laid-back/locals Maui experience, and Blue Tile is close enough to walk into town for lunch at Charlie's and other local restaurants and shopping. Clean rooms, friendly staff - my family and I will definitely be back.

Blue Tile BeachPosted Dec 8, 2012
Cons: Size and location of room. Parking
Location: Next to beach on Hana Road
Convenient location near airport but highway noise was a problem for the Koa room.
