Paia is a reflection of its history as a booming sugar cane plantation town with its old plantation style wooden buildings still intact. This quaint little beach town has an array of fine specialty shops, boutiques, surf shops, antique stores, bakeries, and even an old fashioned tattoo parlor. Award wining restaurants offer everything the discerning diner could want from casual bites, to the full service internationally renowned seafood of Mama's Fish House. Mana Foods, the legendary hip little grocery store built on local, organic principals is five minutes walk. They have a great prepared food bar, including soup and salad.
Your hosts have lived on the North Shore for many years. They are both active members of the North Shore community and can provide access to resources and hidden treasures that are simply unavailable to regular tourists. Whether you want to charge the winter surf at Ho'okipa, meander through the Upcountry meadows, explore the idyllic waterfalls of East Maui or indulge your tropical golfing fantasies, your hosts will ensure you have the local know-how to get the most out of your trip.
Paia is the perfect starting place for day trips around the island. A car is necessary if you plan on sightseeing. We do have a bus that takes you to locations around the island but you will miss some of the islands most popular attractions. The Maui Bus stop is about a 10 minute walk from the property.
If you want to try something different from the resort and touristy part of the Island, this is it!

My husband and I grew up in the islands, raised 3 beautiful daughters and now have 6 grandsons. Prior to moving to Maui in 1999, we lived in Kailua on Oahu and then spent 9 years in Waimea on the Big Island. The North Shore of Maui provides all the activities we enjoy from golf and tennis to biking and walking the beach. We have embraced Maui's slow pace and laid back lifestyle. We love to travel and have stayed in many private vacation rentals so know the importance of providing a comfortable and friendly environment. We recently retired from our long time careers as contractor and realtor and are now managing and maintaining our vacation rental business.
Jacque Delaunay purchased this cottage in 2001
Historic Paia Town is situated on the edge of Paia Bay and provides a location and vibe not found in any other town in Maui. Our property provides the perfect location to walk to the beach and all the wonderful restaurants and boutiques. This is all about location, location, location!
We bought our property and developed it into 3 plantation style cottages, in keeping with the architectural design of the town and era. 2 of the cottages are in a fenced and gated setting and provide a very 'island vibe' that visitors will enjoy as much as we do. It is very laid back and yet the island and coastal decors of the cottages provide comfort and beauty.
Perfect little cottage for a small family. My husband and I were traveling with our 13 month old son and it was exactly what we were looking for. Fenced in, private yard with nice green grass for little ones to play in. They even provided a pack n play for our son to sleep in. The house was cleaned and provided everything we needed for our stay. Close convenient walk into town. Would stay again and recommended to anyone.
The Paia cottage is perfectly located in Paia, so close to everything yet so quiet and relaxing. Everything you could need is supplied and Jacque is a wonderful host. We walked the streets, cruised the beaches and roamed the island from this great location. The house is spotless and has all the conveniences you could ever want or need.
We rented the 2 bedroom house on the property in Paia and it could not have been more perfect! The house was equipped with everything you could think of or need. The location was central to everything with a market and shops all in walking distance. a short walk thru town and you were at the beach! The owner Jaquie was a sweetheart and made sure all was perfect for us! We will definitely be staying here when we return to Maui!
I knew we wanted to be away from the resort areas of Maui and in a "real" town to experience our first trip to,Hawaii and Paia was the perfect place. This rental house was so convenient to go to the beach for a morning walk, return for breakfast, set out for the volcanoe, Hana Highway, and everywhere else on the island and have plenty of restaurant choices and more beach sunsets when we returned.
We arrived in a heat wave and the owners quickly decided to install an air conditioner, a saving grace for a good night's sleep. We heard no traffic and only the crowing of roosters in the morning, a wonderful sound of island living. The house was equipped with all we needed including a blender for smoothies to use that great island fruit. The Mana Food Market was the perfect place for staples.
Everything is a 5-10 minute walk away--beach, groceries, restaurants, so no need to use the car if you don't want to. We didn't understand the owner's concern about dirt until we experienced red Maui sand! Beware of not sitting on rocks and sand at the beach in your best clothes or bathing suit. It's hard to get off!
I am embarrassed I'm just getting to this! My husband & I stayed at Jacque's great place last fall for several days. First of all, she is amazing!!!! secondly, the place was perfect….in walking distance to the town, beautiful, private, spotless! I loved it. We stocked up on food and wine in Paia and had several meals on site. We will be back for SURE!!!
My two teenage daughters and I stayed there over Christmas holidays. It was really clean and well appointed. The house was charming, in and out. It was surrounded by a large fence and it felt very safe. We could walk to town easily because we were very close to the action. We didn't hear any noise from the road and each room had a large ceiling fan. We slept really well. Jacque was there to greet us and came back to make sure everything was ok. Thank you again. We will cherish this holiday forever.
