Great place to stay in Central Maui
This house was centrally located for all of our adventures. The nearby Mama's beach accessible by a small walkway literally a minute or two away was great for our family. The beach is great for younger kids to get accustomed to the water when the surf is light. We saw turtles every day and met other friendly families with kids there. For great sunset views look for the other semi-hidden walkway to a rocky beach to the south.
We rarely used the AC in June, only to cool down the room for my daughter to sleep, the house is cool enough with windows/doors open and a north Maui breeze coming through. The kitchen was great for vacation cooking. We loved the local Kuau market which had the best smoothies on the island and plenty of options to help make the week easier - as a pleasant surprise it carries tons of gluten free snacks and options. This isn't a full service grocery but has eggs, some fruits, drinks, snacks and a deli bar you can order sandwiches, salads or lunch supplies.
The beds were super comfortable and the shower/bath combo were great as well. The local contact was super helpful to us and responded quickly when we had questions (always within 12-24 hours).
We would love to visit again!
Great location - everything is as it appears and then some!
We loved everything about this home. We loved the small town feel of the area. The home was comfortable and exactly as it looked in the pictures if not larger. We felt like locals and enjoyed the peace and quit of the neighborhood. Store near by and the beach just minutes away. We enjoyed coming back to the house and then relaxing by the ocean. Hosts were very accommodating and helpful. So glad I picked this home for our family vacation.
Will be back no question about that!!!!
Winds II was wonderful
We would highly recommend this house to any of our friends. Location was great and the house has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. We enjoyed our time at the Winds and would definitely come back again.
Perfect. Beach, yard, and house hard to beat.
This is our fourth, and best, time to Maui. We wanted a place where we could pretend we lived in Hawaii for a week. We wanted to be outdoors, preferably on a beach. The beach here was perfect for our little family (two daughters, ages 5 and 8). It was small, but offered great protected snorkeling. Saw turtles every time we went there (in the water, on the rocks, or on the beach). The beach is shared with Mama's Fish House so you get lots of dinner guests who walk along the beach, but it still feels like a "neighborhood beach" as opposed to what you might experience in Kaanapali.
The house is better than the pictures. It was well equipped and had true charm. The lush yard was great and provided a very private feeling. We wished we could own it!
If you are looking for shopping or a night life probably look elsewhere. If you want a low-key relaxing family vacation on Maui this is pretty hard to beat.
Balanced, relaxing, and fun!
Our family of 5 had a great time. We are well traveled and there are few places in this world that I would visit twice. I feel the vibe in Paia and the house might be one of those places. It was cleansing physically and spiritually. I turned my phone off and was able to completely unplug. The morning walks to the beach to throw rocks with our two year old son will be stitched in my memory and watching our two girls battle the waves is priceless. Great spot for a family to make memories! Running into Owen Wilson was a bonus for my daughters who love the movie Wonder.
