About Alyson Hodges
The property is owned by brother and sister Jake and Ilana Waxman. Jake and Ilana were both born and raised here on Maui and grew up on Maui's North Shore.
Alyson Hodges purchased this Apartment in 1977
Why Alyson Hodges chose Paia
The property was purchased as vacant land in 1977 by Jake and Ilana's late father, Maui surfer and attorney Jonathan Waxman. Jonathan bought the lot because of its great location being so close to the shore yet an easy stroll to Paia Town. He built the house in 1987.
What makes this Apartment unique
Paia Bay Suites is situated on Loio Place, one of the very few roads in Paia Town that are ocean side of the main road (Hana Hwy). The Paia Bay Suites are on an 8,000 square foot fenced lot which provides plenty of off street fenced parking and a very large yard. The Paia Bay Suites are in a great location that is easy walking distance to the beaches of Paia and just a short stroll from Paia Town's shopping and dining. Yet the property is tucked away from the bustle of Paia Town and has a large, green yard sheltered by shade and shower trees. It's a great place to come back to after a day of being in the ocean or exploring Maui. You can take a shower to wash off the salt and then walk to Paia Town for dinner and stroll home to watch the stars and the ocean from the deck. Please note that Paia Bay Suites is NOT oceanfront. It is separated from the Paia Bay shoreline by a 6' wall. This is a benefit that is obvious to locals and becomes more apparent the more time one spends in Paia as it keeps the property secluded from the busy Paia Bay beach scene. Our guests do what almost all the Paia locals do anyway: stroll over to the beach.

Smashing Views & Location
Perfect place for a couple with one bedroom, nice living/kitchen area, wonderful AC and fantastic views! We could easily walk into town and the beach. Turtles like to hang out a short walk down the path at the end of the road by the tide pools. Can't wait to come back and stay again!
The location was perfect for us! We've been staying in West Maui for year and decided it was time for a change and this beach house was great. The location was within walking distance to everything in Paia, we never used the car when in town. Centrally located to Upcountry, Hana Hwy, and Kahului/Airport. Easy drive to South Maui too. The property was perfect for the two of us and had everything we needed for our stay. We would definitely recommend this house!
Quiet, cool, good location
Our first stay in Paia, and very happy with Paia Bay Suites. We look forward to returning.
Perfect location to beaches and town
We absolutely loved our stay here!
stay in Paia.
The property is located 2 blocks from town so it was easy to walk into town for a meal or to shop. Paia doesn't have as many tourists as the other side of the island which made it easier to get around
The geographic location of Paia made for a shorter drive to areas we wanted to see.
The house was clean and the furnishings were quite comfortable. We would stay here again if we return to Maui.
We loved our stay here, the location couldn't have been better! You can see the ocean from the living room, and the sea breeze is so nice coming through all of the windows. Just a short walk into downtown Paia, which is so charming. Allyson was extremely responsive when I had a question, and she had really thought of everything - extra beach towels, linens, chocolate upon arrival (!!!), beach chairs, toiletries, etc. We would 100% stay here again and will absolutely be recommending this place to any friends that visit Paia in the future.
Thank you for a great review! We look forward to having you back! Aloha, Aly @paiabaysuites
Paia Bay Suites is located a few minutes' stroll from the heart of Paia Town yet is tucked away on Loio Place, a side street 50 feet from the ocean of Paia Bay**.
Paia Town is Maui's North Shore beach, surf and boutique shopping town. There are unique shops, a variety of great dining, Maui's best (and cheapest) health food store, and surf stores.
Paia is inhabited by an eclectic mix of local families descended from the plantation days, hippies from the 1970s, working people, monied retirees, hardcore big wave surfers, windsurfers, kiteboarders, farmers, New Age adherents and mystics, and evangelical Christians and energetic entrepreneurs.
The North Shore has great surfing, snorkeling, diving and beaches for swimming and walking. In the summertime the waves are small and the water clear. In the winter, massive swells roll across thousands of miles of open Pacific Ocean and make landfall all across the North Shore resulting in worldclass surfing, windsurfing and kiteboarding. Paia is 15 minutes from the renowned Jaws surfbreak where the world's best tow-in surfers compete while helicopters film from above.
** Please note: Loio Place is on a rocky promontory which keeps it secure from ocean waves. All of the vacation rentals on Loio Place use Paia Bay as the nearest beach because the shoreline along Loio Place is rocky. Paia Bay Suites has a fantastic view of Paia Bay and the surfers but is not oceanfront.
