Overview

Haiku House Rental Photos and Description

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

Welcome to the newly remodeled Paia Surf House, STPH2012/0001, Tax ID W04030496-01, which easily accommodates parties of 5-9 (unused parts of the house can be closed off, saving $$$) – or splurge and make it all just a honeymoon palace for two. When you're at Paia Surf, you can stash the car keys for days on end if you want – and walk everywhere! How cool is that? (Driving is SO overrated.) Shops/restaurants/cafes/galleries and, yes, the beach, are all out the front door, no further than a couple blocks. And Paia is a gem of a coastal village, right beside the mighty blue Pacific's open waters. You’re guaranteed to feel the ocean’s power, one way or another.

Whether you're part of a multi-generational family gathering, or an intimate romantic escapade, this luxury house is all yours while you're there. And the house works great in different ways. 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, and some outdoor/backyard grotto space. Very versatile, with an extreme 'Oh WOW!’ factor the moment you step inside.

Paia Surf has five bedrooms and four full bathrooms - all newly remodeled. Its all double-walled construction, with NEW insulation - windows - doors - stone tile floors - plumbing - electrical. The theme throughout? Driftwood. Sea glass. Sand. Every room has it's own quiet solar electric AC unit. There are 4 parking stalls on the property. Paia Surf can be rented as a whole, or with portions closed off, making it potentially a one-two-three-four- or five-bedroom rental. THE RATE ESTIMATE ON THIS SITE STARTS WITH THE UPPER LEVEL 3 BEDROOMS, 2 BATH. THIS IS A 5 BEDROOM, 4 BATH HOME AND YOU CAN RENT LESS BEDROOMS FOR A SMALLER RATE so please contact the owner about price variation for more bedrooms. Maui County regulation allows two 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 just off the road thru town, three houses from the shore. Beach access is around the block and about a five-minute walk. Check in is at 3pm. Check out at 10am. There is a seven-night minimum stay.

Folks who come to Paia love “the coolest little town in Maui” – one of the island's most charming hideaways. Escaping the tourist sprawl of steel and glass rising high, Paia is a nod to the remnants of Hawaii’s past, when it was a sugar cane plantation village. You can almost imagine the company store on Main Street. And what better way to experience its timeless, laid back 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, mixing with the locals! Turn one way outside your door, and you're strolling by some of the island's best restaurants, earthy little cafes, places to get a holistic massage or tribal tattoo, or a tasty cocktail while enjoying live music, historical sites, surf shops ... all just a stroll out the door. Turn the other way and it's a short walk to the beach and all its glories of sun/sea/sand. Never been to Shangri La? Hey - you live in Paia - and that’s even better.

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 who make long journeys from distant lands to experience the island of Maui. 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 high rise mega-resorts from one end to the other.

Experience the essence of old and new 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 Maui

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 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.

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!

Magical

  • 5 of 5

Annie,

Our entire Maui experience was magical. Our stay at Paia Surf was the cornerstone of that magical experience. The property was beyond our expectations in size, beauty and location. Our easy walks to the beach each morning were the absolute highlight. Sara and the other staff are delightful, hardworking and kind. Thank you all for making a home in Maui for us.

Paia Surf House 6/12/2016 - 6/19/2016

  • 5 of 5

This by far was one of the best vacation rental I have ever rented and I have rented a lot of vacation homes. Let me start first with the rental process Annie was very good at answering all my questions in a timely manner. Annie also gives you a host of information to help you plan for your vacation. The location of the house is perfect, walking distance to all most everything you made need and also to the beach. Now moving on to the house it was VERY clean and furnish very well Annie and Chris have thought of everything you may need to make their home very enjoyable while staying there. They are the most genuine people I have meet in a long time. Annie also checked on us to make sure all our needs were met Chris took the time to come by and show us the walking path to the beach. I will stay here anytime I travel to Maui if this home is available and will also refer anyone I know traveling to Maui to Annie and Chris's home.

Thank You,

Veronda, Mario and Nitra

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.
