Beautiful view and loved the town of Paia but house was very disappointing

  • 1 of 5

We have rented several properties and always been very pleased with each of them and anticipated the same this time. We went to Maui for my Dad's 90th birthday which the owner knew but nothing was said that the house has at least five different levels in the house. You step down into second kitchen, down to bathroom from bedroom, down to main living room and up to another bedroom.

Beautiful view and we saw turtles feeding on the rocks every day but you can't get to the beach shown in the picture unless you go down very narrow rock steps. The porch had a mat that covered several holes in the landing and last step was very soft and concerned that it could break through.

The dishwasher wasn't working and we were told that someone would come and look at it. The message that we got back was that a rat probably ate through the wiring. We did loose some food as mouse dropping were all over the kitchen counter and floor and we did end up seeing a mouse in the house.

It is difficult to leave a less than stellar report on any house but with these things and then very poor response from the property manager and no response from the owner has lead me to be honest with those considering renting this house. The property manager never came to meet us or show us around the house, no info on the area in the house, no communication about how to access the WiFi and the information on the internet was not current. She said that the windows were not washed due to lack of time and water. Window screens not in place correctly, doors didn't close easily. This is again a beautiful spot and I know that it is hard to keep up with maintenance so close to the ocean but this house needs serious repairs to be able to charge the money that they are asking.

I am still waiting to hear from the owner about our concerns and would not have written this negative but accurate review is the owner had called and listened to our concerns.

Owner's Response: Dear Sandra C, i am sorry to hear that you had a less than satisfactory experience at our beachfront house. i would like to point out a few things. 1, yes I knew your 90 year old father was in your party and we clearly state in our listing that the property is not suitable for handicapped access.We also state clearly that there are steep steps to the beach. 2.I heard about your complaints about access the first day you arrived from our manager and we could only point out to the disclosures on our listing. 3. From that point onwards you seemed intent on making me and the house out to be 'the "bad guy". 4. the dishwasher was fixed promptly and this is the first time I have heard the "rat" story. 5. None of the other issues were brought to my or my managers attention during your stay. 6. Significantly you fail to mention that your father had a fall during his stay and had to go to the hospital. I can understand this was distressing to you and I left two messages on your voicemail enquiring as to his health and requesting a call back. No response came. 7.After you left you demanded a significant refund (citing your fathers fall) from our manager with a thinly veiled threat of a derogatory review if we did not pay up. I am sorry that you chose to stay at a house that clearly states that it is not suitable for handicapped access and has steps to the beach, despite having a 90 year old father in the group. To say that you wrote this review because I did not contact you is disingenuous in the least.

Gorgeous view and great home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed this home in Paia on the beach. We took my parents there for their 50th Wedding anniversary and it was a hit! We had a great time and liked the split floor plan, the nice hot tub, the convenient walk to town and the overall feel of the house. We definitely would recommend it to others in a large group.

This location is the best on the North Shore. If you like water activities and the feel of old Hawai

  • 5 of 5

The home is well loved and the rate you pay is certainly worth every penny given the location. Cant say enough about our holiday here. I brought my adult children and their spouses and we all agreed it was the best holiday of our lives. The Banyan tree next to the house is truly a religious experience. We surfed every day off of the front yard and walked the beaches to our hearts content. Paia and all of its amenities was a 1 minute stroll down the lane but the hustle and bustle was to our backs as we enjoyed the waterfront. We could have been in Hana for that matter. Thanks so much Annie and Nayleen. Mahalo

Paradise on Earth

  • 5 of 5

I had spent countless hours looking at places to rent and my friends all agree that I found the best place possible! The pictures were very accurate; however, I was still blown away by how gorgeous and amazing the view was. The house was great, there were five adults and we each had our own room. My room had the most amazing views and comfy bed! There was even a second kitchen and living area, but we spent most of our time in the main living room overlooking the ocean and outside in our own yard by the sea! The stone stairs down to the water are a bit rough and steep so I wouldn't recommend small kids or disabled people. We had our little beach mostly to ourselves, except for some turtles that came to greet us daily. The private hot tub overlooking the ocean was fantastic!

Lena greeted us the first day. She was very sweet and helpful but gave us our privacy. When there was a water main break in town that shut down water to the town for a few hours, she had texted me before we even realized it!

There was a couple renting the back bungalow but we never even heard or saw them.

The town is great and everything was so close! We could just walk down the street and get coffee or fish tacos (literally a 2-5 minute walk to great restaurants and shops). I love that the town was not overrun by tourists. Locals are nice and laid back. The house was a great base, as we could go explore the island but couldn't wait to come back to our cute little town and awesome house.

For food, I recommend Mamma's Fish House. The check was big, but was worth every penny. It was more than dinner, it was an experience, with the beautiful grounds and view. The Mahi Mahi was the best on any menu on the island.

The weather was just gorgeous. Whether the sun was out or not, I was never hot or cold. It was just beautiful. And there were rainbows everywhere! I just cannot express how very happy we all were at this house. We had so much fun that we are immediately planning a return visit to the same place!

Awesome, right on the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing, and it worked great for our big family vacation in Maui! We rented both the main house and the cottage, and it was very comfortable, even with 11 people!

The house really is right on the ocean, with big breakers. From the deck, we could see turtles swimming. We could surf right outside the house, and the breakers made for awesome background noise for falling asleep at night.

The house is not luxurious, but it is great for a family vacation. There are two kitchens, which can be useful. Two of the four main bedrooms are a little odd, because they have big glass doors opening to a sunroom, which also has a twin bed and was used as a 5th bedroom. There were curtains, but those rooms still had less privacy than the other rooms.

The host was helpful and available to answer questions through texting or calling. At first, we had problems connecting to the internet, but we were able to figure that out, and then it worked fine.

The town of Paia is really charming and a great place to stay. It was close to the airport, and it was not a problem to drive to the other side of the island for excursions and snorkeling. We were very happy with the location and the house. Highly recommended!

I stayed there with my two daughters, their spouses, and two grandchildren. Plenty of room for all.

  • 4 of 5

Overall experience was very good. You can't beat the location especially for access to the beach which is right out the back door and walking to downtown Paia was a very short distance. The house was very comfortable. We spent every morning enjoying the sea turtles feeding on the reef and every evening relaxing on the deck. I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay here. We had several other families that came for the same reason we did and none of the places they rented could even come close to being as good as ours. I would definitely rent this place again if some improvements were done.

The improvements I would suggest are;

1. Replace all screens on windows and doors. Actually, some windows did not have one at all.

2. Replace or repair the non working oven in the front kitchen.

3. Replace bathroom door in master bedroom.

4. If possible, put some kind of hand rail to assist going down the steps to access the beach. Kind of tricky getting down there with beach towels, etc and kind of scary for small children.

5. Repair key pad on inside of gate. I had to bring the remote opener every time we walked into town which was a couple of times a day.

6. Put a air conditioner in the front of the house because it can get pretty warm even with the windows open.

Annie and her staff were a pleasure to work with, extremely courteous, and very quick to respond to emails or phone calls.

Owner's Response: We are very glad to see you and your family enjoyed your stay. We have noted your suggestions for improvements. The eight steps down to the beach can be a challenge but sadly we cannot install a railing as it is in the ocean conservation zone. All other items will be addressed right away. One of our constant challenges is the corrosive salt air due to our dramatic location so close to the shoreline. best regards Peter and Annie. Owners.
