Maui's North Shore is regarded as the quieter side of the island. But don't let this sentiment fool you. In addition to all of the usual outdoor activities, the area surrounding us boasts some of the best dining, entertainment and shopping on Maui. The picturesque old town of Paia is just minutes drive from us and offers an eclectic mix of dining, bars, general stores, boutiques and gift shops. Equally nearby is Kahului which features the Queen Ka'ahumanu Center shopping mall, lots of restaurants and many of the usual stores found on the mainland. In contrast, a visit to the Kahului Flea Market will always unearth unusual items and bargains. The towns of Wailuku and Makawao are also close by for more shopping and entertainment choices.
The Hanawii suite is located on the upper floor of the house in the west wing. It has it's own private entrance. This spacious self contained suite features a large living room/dining area with fully equipped kitchen. Everything is included to allow you to prepare the most lavish or simple meals.
The queen bedroom and adjoining bathroom are also bright and roomy. Both main rooms have large glass sliding doors which open onto the large private deck. Plenty of room to eat or just relax while enjoying beautiful ocean and mountain views. The Hanawi suite is perfect for after ocean activity relaxation. TV, video and music systems complement the comfortable furnishings and colorful decor for that home away from home feeling. Fabulous original works of art adorn the walls. Cook up your pasta masterpiece in the easy to use kitchen. Or grab a towel and a glass of wine and stroll down to our friendly windsurfing beach for an evening you'll never forget.
And remember....we are always available to help with anything you may need.....from shopping and entertainment advise to hot tips on secret hikes, sailing spots and other local inside information!

This is paradise and to be able to live and have a business in such a place is beyond a dream. We have a beautiful home on one of the most unique and friendly streets and beach in Hawaii. I am an avid windsurfer and surfer and this is one of the best places in the world to enjoy those sports. Being able to offer our clients a unique vacation experience with all of the aloha, beauty and relaxation we would want in a vacation ourselves.
Direct access along our short private path to one of Maui's most beautiful beaches. One of the most famous places to windsurf in the world. The best sailors in the pro tour come to this beach to relax and practice and have fun. Private road with just a few homes. Large private garden with under house lanai offering lots of space to chill, bbq, play lawn games. Just one rental unit means a very private and relaxed atmosphere.
We are just finishing up 2 glorious weeks over the winter holidays at Ray & Vivienne's place on the North Shore of Maui and couldn't be happier with the location, setting and accommodations. We started every day with coffee on the ocean view deck followed by a game of family boccie (we have 2 teen/tween sons) in the sprawling front lawn and then headed out for island adventures or just walked over to the beach to SUP, kayak, beach walk or just relax (we didn't get the weather for wind sports but fortunately that wasn't our objective this trip). The owners were incredibly accommodating and full of local knowledge and even invited us to their New Year's Eve party, and very generously allowed me to use their covered area for a small birthday gathering with local friends. The neighbors were all welcoming and friendly and we felt extremely fortunate to be able to stay here. We'll definitely be back.
My husband and I recently spent a week at Sevin's house (that's the dog). We had a wonderful time. The location is so beautiful and peaceful. My husband was able to windsurf and paddle right from the private beach. Quite special. So close to Paia town which we love...Milagros for happy hour (Margaritas & Ahi dishes), Thai Spice (Seafood soup & Ahi Penang Curry), Paia Coffee. Equally easy drive to Kahalui. There is a wonderful bike path a short stroll from the property which I enjoyed for morning runs. If you are looking for a special, unique and local experience, you won't be disappointed.
My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. We had an absolute blast! We immediately felt comfortable. Ray's had everything we could have asked for and more...even a full sized cooler that we put to excellent use. Ray offered us advice on places to check out that we never would have found on our own. It really made our experience. The house is in a superb location, we enjoyed it immensely. We felt very free here. I would (and will) stay here again and recommend it highly!
My husband and I have been to all the Hawaiian Islands over the years. A couple of visits to Maui - but previously we’ve only stayed in Wailea or Ka’anapali at resort hotels. Wow, were we missing out. We arrived at Ray’s Friendly beach, the rooms were beautiful, clean and the view from our upstairs lanai with big comfy chairs welcomed us, like it was our home (so did Ray’s dog Sevin, who was a source of much entertainment!)
We wandered right down to the beach and watched the sunset and the late afternoon kiters and windsurfers (we don’t do either sport!) but it was great fun to watch. Ray was marvelous, he gave us all the ‘inside’ information for great eateries and off the beaten track places where we could enjoy the beauty of Maui, without the ’tourist’ crush. We felt that we were remote - yet in the heart of everything. Paia town is a five minute drive away, it’s quaint with lots of cool restaurants and shops. One night he had a barbecue and we were invited too, we felt like we were with old friends. The barbecue area is so charming, with Ray’s art on the walls, big armchairs and sofas and several big dining tables. There are beach chairs, snorkel masks and a couple of ocean kayaks that were at our disposal. We even got up really early one morning to take the two-man kayak out and photograph the sunrise, it was breathtaking.
My husband and I work very hard in high-pressure jobs and we both badly needed some R&R and to ‘get away from it all’. No previous vacation has ever given us the peace and relaxation that we experienced on Maui’s North Shore and at Ray’s Friendly Beach.
Mahalo! We WILL be back!
I've been coming to Maui for 15+ years now, and Friendly Beach is now my "go to" place to stay. Keep your windsurfing, kitesurfing or SUP gear at the end of the garden, and just a few steps away is one of Maui's finest beaches. The lagoon makes a great place to swim or snorkel too.
The suite itself has everything you could want. Comfortably furnished and large windows (with screens) make it very airy. Nothing quite like waking up the sound of the wind and waves in the morning.
Ray and Viv (the owners) live in the main house right next door and are very helpful with anything you might need.
Highly recommended, and I can't wait to come back again!
My wife and I had a fabulous holiday at the Friendly Beach. We barely used our rental car, as we spent everyday playing and relaxing on the beach in front of the house. Kiting, SUP, snorkeling, swimming, relaxing everyday on the beach. We loved it. The rental space is clean, light, airy, and comfortable. We will definitely be back. Ray was very gracious and helpful. 2 thumbs up!
