MY TOP CHOICE OF PLACES TO STAY ON MAUI

  • 5 of 5
Every time I travel to Paia going forward, I would love to stay at this cottage in Paia. It is perfectly sized for two, and could certainly hold four comfortably. The downstairs living area afforded us everything we could need – a great living area complete with desk and wifi, a charming and well-stocked kitchen where we prepared many meals and could easily store all our groceries, great closet space, a clean and well-appointed bathroom, an idyllic outdoor shower, and a washer and dryer. The upstairs bedroom is spacious and had a great sitting area which gave the living area a run for its money in terms of where we wanted to spend our reading time. The whole house had many windows which created steady circulation, the perfect way to stay cool in gorgeous Maui impeding on the ambiance with the buzz of an A/C unit.

For outdoor activities, Paia is hard to beat. The cottage was stocked with kayaks and paddleboards, of which we were able to take advantage at the nearby beach. The location of the house also afforded us the ability to walk to the beach and anywhere in Paia town, and to make a short hop over to Kahului where we took kiteboarding lessons with highly-skilled, patient and motivating instructors. One of our favorite adventures was our bike ride: we rented bikes from Maui Cyclery and cycled from our front door around the bottom of the West Maui Mountains to Lahaina and back; the ride was gorgeous and I felt safe the entire time.

Most importantly, Karen, the owner, is highly responsive and extremely easy with whom to work. She clearly cares about her guests, and made sure we were taken care of while we were there. I would have loved to meet her in person but unfortunately our time in Paia did not overlap with her and her family’s time there.

Without a doubt, this is the place I would choose to stay any time I am in Paia. If you are into the active, outdoor lifestyle, or if you want to lounge around on the beach, this is the place for you.

Thank you, Karen, for being a fantastic, thoughtful host. We are already looking forward to our next visit!

COMFORTABLE COTTAGE WITH ALL THE NECESSITIES

  • 4 of 5
This is a great central location providing access to all Maui attractions. It puts you closer to Hana and Haleakala than many spots on Maui and you are very close to Paia and its assortment of shops and places to eat. You are 5 minutes from Mama's Fish House, probably the best place to eat on Maui. It does tend to be a little more windy and rainy in this area.
The property was clean and well maintained. It is a little rustic but has the basic necessities. The kitchen is small with stove, microwave, refrigerator and toaster oven. It also has basic kitchen supplies. The bed is comfortable and they have plenty of extra futons if you have a bigger group. The washer and dryer also came handy. They have a bunch of gear including kayaks, surf boards, chairs and snorkel gear available for your use, but be prepared to clean it up because not everyone leaves it in great shape. The outdoor shower is fabulous. Wifi can be a little spotty at times.
The owners are great. We ran out of propane for the barbecue and they had a new bottle instantly. They are next door but stay out of your way unless you need them.
They only take cash, which concerned me a little but it worked out fine.
I would recommend this property to a friend as long as they were looking for the simple life. This is not luxurious but is comfortable.
What's not to love about Maui? If you surf or wind surf Ho'okipa is 5 minutes away. Paia is an adventure in itself. Everyone should take the road to Hana and you are 25 to 45 minutes closer the most other spot and the same for Haleakala. The down side is that calmer beaches and snorkeling areas are further away.

BEST PLACE TO STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Wir sind ganz aus Hamburg / Deutschland angereist und verleben hier gerade einen sehr schönen Urlaub auf Maui. Wir sind hier mit 2 Erwachsenen und 2 Kindern und haben mehr als ausreichend Platz.
Die Außendusche ist wirklich der Hammer. Auch der Grill funktioniert prächtig. Nebenbei dürfen wir ohne Aufpreis die 2 SUP´s , die 3 Seekajaks und die Boogyboards benutzen!!
Sogar Shampoo zum Duschen und Waschmittel für die Waschmaschine wird gestellt.
In der Garage steht eine Tischtennisplatte aufgebaut zur freien Benutzung.

Zum Strand sind es nur wenige Meter den Weg runter.
Nach Paia fährt man 2min. mit dem Auto.
Das Bild, auf dem man das Wasser sieht, ist direkt vom Haus aus aufgenommen.
Aus dem Schlafzimmer im ersten Stock, kann man wunderbar aufs Wasser schauen.
Es sind alle Fenster mit Mückengittern versehen, so dass es keine Kleintiere im Haus gibt. Auch zum schlafen ist es kühl genug.
Es ist alles sehr sauber und gepflegt.
Ein toller Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge und zum Surfen, Kiten, SUP, und Windsurfen.
Wir hatten sogar das Glück, dass es in Jaws Wellen gab!

Thank you Karen for this beautiful time!!
