Paia House Rental Photos and Description

3 to 5 Bedrooms, 4 Full Bathrooms (sleeps from 4 to 9), Permit STPH 2012/0001

Welcome to Paia ... and The Paia Surf STPH2012/0001, Tax ID W04030496-01. When you're at Paia Surf, you'll be uniquely situated. Not only are you in a gem of a coastal village (Paia), right beside the blue Pacific's open waters. You're also situated to enjoy a luxurious coastal home all by yourselves - just a short walk from the water. Whether you're part of a multi-generational family gathering, or an intimate romantic escapade, the house is all yours while you're there. And the house works great in different ways. YOU CAN RENT LESS BEDROOMS FOR A SMALLER RATE so please contact the owner about this. Designed to be enjoyed communally, it also has plenty of little hideaway features that allow for privacy; places to get away from it all (the LANAI, for one). Very versatile, with an extreme 'Oh wow! This place is gorgeous!' factor once you step inside. But what about Paia - the little community you are now part of?

Our Paia Surf house has 5 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms - all newly remodeled. It's all double-walled construction, with NEW insulation - windows - doors - stone tile floors - plumbing - electrical. The theme throughout? Drift wood. Sea glass. Sand. Every room has it's own quiet solar electric AC unit. There are 4 parking stalls on the property. A portion of the house can be reserved or it can be rented out as a whole. Paia Surf is versatile and potentially one, two, three, four or five bedrooms can be rented. Maui County regulation allows 2 guests per bedroom and only one rental group, on the same rental agreement, staying at the home at any one period of time. With this in mind, parts of Paia Surf can easily be locked off for smaller rental groups, that way guests are not charged for all of the existing bedrooms. For vacation homes in Maui these regulations ensure that guests have the ultimate private experience and Paia Surf really does feel like your home away from home!

The second story has a small ocean view, gourmet kitchen and large lanai complete with comfortable outdoor furnishings. The ground level potentially has 2 bedrooms each with their own full bathroom; one with king bed and a kitchenette (wet bar) and outdoor BBQ with cooking element, the other bedroom has a queen bed, fridge and microwave. The lower bedrooms each have their own private lanais and can either be connected or separated. The house feels light and bright, insulated and quiet, even though it is located in the heart of Paia. The house is oceanside of the main highway, three houses from the shore. Beach access is around the block and about a 5 minute walk. Check in is at 3pm. Check out at 10am. There is a five day minimum stay. Shorter stays require an extra charge for cleaning.

Folks who come to Maui love visiting our vibrant little town - one of the island's most beloved, fun, northshore hideaways. And what better way to experience its essence than residing in this charming, almost-at-the-beach/in-the-heart-of-the-village house. You're not just a visitor, you live there! Turn one way outside your door, and you're strolling by some of the island's best restaurants, earthy little cafes, places to get holistic massage, or a tasty cocktail while enjoying live music, historical sites ... all within a couple blocks. Turn the other way and it's a short walk to the beach and all its glories of sun/sea/sand. Shangri La. Hey - you live in Paia - not a bad way to go!

As a local family and business owners on this island, we feel privileged and proud to be able to contribute to our community by providing a service that benefits our town and the visitors that make the long journey across the ocean to experience Maui island. The north shore is the heart and soul of Maui. In Paia, you will be part of a community that feels more 'local' than touristy, more homegrown and friendly than fussy - quite different from the south, and west, shores, jammed with mega-resorts from one end to the other.

Experience the essence of Maui at The Paia Surf. Come visit our home. We've lived here - and loved it - a long time.

Aloha and All The BEST,

Annie, Chris, Dylan and Evan McNeil

Annie McNeil purchased this house in 1997

Why Annie McNeil chose Paia

The location is the best. You're in the little Paia town, but scarcely more than a stone's toss away from the water. And if you want upcountry adventure, the road leads up the side of the volcano, or take the road to Hana for the ultimate day trip exploration.

What makes this house unique

What is unique about the Paia Surf is that it is located in the town, stones throw away from the beach, great dining, shops, grocery and entertainment. IF you reserve Paia Surf your group is always the only group in the house. That makes it like your home away from home. Reservations can be made for 1,2,3,4 or 5 bedrooms with the other sections of the house locked off and not charged to the guest. Because the house is newly remodeled it has AC in every room and insulated walls making it a quiet place even though it's in the heart of a busy town. This home is especially unique because it is the perfect place to have a quality family get together for young and old alike. The young have Paia town entertainment a few steps away! No more stranded teens, always in a bad mood, when their outlet is just outside the door.

Paia Maui

Great family spot -- excellent location

  • 5 of 5
My husband, 2 year-old son and I went to Maui for 10 days to spend our anniversary -- and were joined part of the trip by a couple of friends. We initially booked the upper 3 bedrooms (there are an additional 2 separate bedrooms on the lower floor), but after the 3 of us spent the night, it became clear we'd need more space for the additional couple.

The upper part of the house would be perfect for a family with a couple of kids (2-4), or extra family members who are really close.

The house is in Paia -- an excellent location. The little town is about 10 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes from Haiku (where some of the biking tours down the volcano start -- and I totally recommend), and about 45 minutes from Lahaina.

We arrived and the place was equipped with most of the things we needed: A high chair and a booster seat, a stroller, a potty, a pack 'n play (which was too small for our 2 year-old, but would be great for a younger child) and loads of beach toys. For the rest of us: Beach towels, every essential kitchen gadget and some amazing fruits and snacks.

The place was really clean and nicely decorated. The outdoor patio was fantastic.The A/C units worked really well. The outdoor showers and foot baths were really convenient.

The house is literally in the heart of Paia -- right behind a gift shop and gas station near Hana Highway and Baldwin Ave. -- which made it a little loud some evenings. But more often than not, we were happy to be in the middle of everything and have Paia Fish Market and Ono Gelato literally a minute walk away. Manna grocery store was about a 4 minute walk and had everything we needed.

Annie and Chris were exceedingly helpful. They responded to every email quickly and helpfully (Our son got sick our first day and they recommended a doctor on the island). Their recommendations on the island were great.

My only suggestion would be to have a mid-trip cleaning option.

I would absolutely recommend Paia Surf!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5
The title is not hyperbole, this was our best vacation ever. Annie and Chris, the owners had thought of everything we might need. We walked in the door and the place was even nicer than the pictures. There was even cold beer in the fridge. The ocean view from the deck was the perfect place for a cup of coffee and a surf check in the morning. The beach was a short walk with fun waves right out front. There were even lots of toys for our three year old.

We were so impressed with Paia Surf that we booked a weekend at Annie and Chris's house in Bodega Bay, Birdwatch.

Thanks so much for an amazing trip. We will be back.

Bruce, Leslie and Asher

Beyond Expectations!

  • 5 of 5
We love Paia, the beaches, the shops, the restaurants, the street life - it's fun! We booked Paia Surf because their location is right in the middle of town! Stepping into an oasis, just steps away from all the action, Paia Surf provided a cool, quiet, and welcoming sanctuary for all of us. As you walk into the house, you are lulled by the soothing colors and plush, comfortable furnishings, but are then slowly struck by the understated pampering that exists in the details. Paia Surf understands what you want, where you want it, and the way you want it. They've thought of everything! An expansive floor plan allowed for large gatherings and there were many quiet and comfortable areas throughout where one could get away to read a book or take a nap. The lanai was huge. In fact, we spent more time in the house than we ever anticipated. It was fun, relaxing, and was a fantastic space for renewing friendships, building relationships, and being together. We thought we would be eating out much more than we did, but because Mana Foods is down the street, and the kitchen island attracted conversation and activity, we just kept eating, and cooking, and laughing. It turned out to be much better for us to cook a majority of our meals there, and left the Paia restaurants to special occasions. When it was over, we hated to leave, but haven't forgotten the memories of a great time in a fantastic space - we look forward to our next Paia Surf vacation!

“Brilliant Say at Paia Surf”

  • 5 of 5
The reviews are spot on! Paia Surf is as in the pics and right in the middle of groovy Paia, which has a great grocery and plenty of places to eat and drink if you want to get out. Annie and Chris are superlative owners, and went the extra mile to ensure we had a great stay. Be sure to book direct with Annie for best timings and rates. Paia Bay beach is a 3 minute walk and not crowded at all. Baldwin beach is a little further down with more action. We had the entire house and found it perfect for our group. Beach chairs, umbrellas and towels were way too convenient as were the outdoor showers, gas BBQ, washer/dryer and parking. The upstairs has the big kitchen and living room, is well appointed with all utensils. The beds and linens are very comfy. Wifi worked great and we had no issues with hot water. Paia Surf is everything you would want in a hotel but with the quaintness of your own location.

Paia is a great central location to experience Maui, away from and very different than the resort areas on the west side. You'll need a rental car, but Hana highway sights, the west beaches and Haleakala are not too far a drive. Recommend the cove beaches on the east side and catching sun up on the volcano, very memorable. All told, we're very happy with our stay, Paia Surf is definitely a redo when we get to Maui again. Thanks Annie and Chris!

Great location and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying at Paia Surf. The home was spacious, modern and clean. We rented out the entire house and would re-rent the home in a heart beat. Chris and Annie are professionals and catered to our needs. They showed us what to do around town and what beach to bring the kids to. I highly recommend anyone to book this place.

Paia is a local, 'small town' kind of place, friendly to visitors from far away places. The vibe is laid back in the most island sense of the word. Local aloha and small town, rather than gaudy, upscale or resorty. Whether your thing is seal watching at the beach, experiencing the hippie back-to-nature lifestyle, surfing the Five-O break, or prowling around the streets meandering among the tantalizing restaurants, shops and galleries, Paia always pleases. And the constant tradewinds makes this north shore location slightly cooler than the more touristy west and south sides. It is in the heart of Maui's wild coast. A short stroll gets you to the beach. From there you can walk for miles! Do not be offended if a local asks if you are a 'haole'. It's not a derogatory term. It simply means foreigner. Nearby are beautiful beaches and legendary water sports natural arenas ... like Jaws, where giant waves sometimes come rolling in ... and Hookipa, where pro surfers, windsurfers and kiteboarders perform miraculous feats. Both spots are great for spectators.

Activities? Pretty much anything you can think of. How about for starters ... surfing, windsurfing, kiteboarding, golf, tennis, stand up paddling, canoe paddling, beachcombing, swimming, bodyboarding, road biking, mountain biking, rock jumping, hiking, shopping, live music, gallery browsing, and historical churches.
