A beautiful soft sand shore line make for the perfect launch or swim site. Many reef formations afford the intermediate and expert windsurfers and kiters plenty of 'air time' opportunities!

The apartment is completely self contained with it's own private entrance. A full size Queen bedroom, bright and clean bathroom and spacious living room are features of our vacation rental suite. A special and unique feature of the suite is the fabulous collection of original artworks by famous local artist, Ray Masters, adorning the walls of the suite and under house lounge area.

Maui's North Shore is regarded as the quieter side of the island. But don't let this sentiment fool you. In addition to all of the usual outdoor activities, the area surrounding us boasts some of the best dining, entertainment and shopping on Maui. The picturesque old town of Paia is just minutes drive from us and offers an eclectic mix of dining, bars, general stores, boutiques and gift shops. Equally nearby is Kahului which features the Queen Ka'ahumanu Center shopping mall, lots of restaurants and many of the usual stores found on the mainland.

Our number one choice on Maui!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I absolutely love our time at Friendly Beach! This was not our first time at Ray and Viv's, nor will it be our last. As always, the private beach was magical... Quiet, beautiful and serene. It is a treat to have such a lovely beach just steps away. We were greatly impressed by the renovations to the kitchen and bathroom, which bring this rental to the next level. And, if I am not mistaken, there is a new bed as well. I haven't slept that comfortably in years (and not just because we could hear the sounds of the ocean drifting up to our unit). We always appreciate the fabulous location. It is less than 10 minutes to Paia town, where we could shop and choose from numerous restaurants. Paia also has a great natural foods market, which I love. All that said, I think what makes Ray and Viv's place so special is Ray and Viv! Unlike many vacation rentals where the owner is nowhere to be found, Ray and Viv are always there when you need them. If you want total privacy, it is yours. But, if you want advice on where to go and what to see on Maui, they are incredibly knowledgable. They are friendly and open... We were even invited for dinner one evening! Mahalo for your kindness and hospitality. We'll see you next time!

Owner's Response: It's always great having guests return. And you certainly have done that...many times :-) It feels like a family visit when you're here. Really stoked you liked the remodel and upgrades. We spent a lot of money and time trying to get it right for our guests, as each has different tastes and needs. We think the place looks and feels really great and we are thankful that it met with your obvious approval. We look forward to your next visit....especially Sevin who loved swimming with you every day. And Vali who misses her cuddles! Much aloha to you both!

Best family/windsurf vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place where I could windsurf and my family would also enjoy. I contacted Ray with some questions, he responded promptly and we booked. We arrived on Maui, got our car and gear and showed up at Friendly beach. The property was more amazing than we expected! We were greeted by Vivienne who showed us around the property and our rental. The house is impeccable, up to date and tastefully decorated with an awesome private deck. Ray's art is superb! The beach is just perfect and only a few steps away. I was able to keep my gear rigged and just walked up the pathway to the beach. Not only is the beach and property perfect for windsurfing, it was also a big hit with my wife and 7 year old. Ray, Vivienne and Sevin are super friendly and amazing hosts. We couldn't have had a more perfect vacation and just trying to figure out how to get back there ASAP!

Perfect place, perfect location, perfect hosts!

  • 5 of 5

The friendly beach is ideally situated steps from a private and beautiful stretch of beach in Spreckscille. / Paia. The home is really comfortable and well appointed, with a fantastic and large private deck. Location wise this place can't be beat - 10 min drive to the shops and graceful near the airport in one direction and about 5 min to Paia in the other. The Hosts couldn't be more welcoming and accommodating !! I'll be back for sure.

California Windsurfer

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean, up to date and quiet. My husband is a windsurfer and there was plenty of room to store his gear. Being a CPA and an accountant just coming off tax season, we enjoyed the peaceful atmosphere. We are already planning on returning next year. Ray & Vivienne were great host.

Kiteboarding, Beachcombing, & Relaxing in Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been vacationing on Maui for 25 years and decided to try something different by staying on the North Shore to be closer to the best kiteboarding beaches on the island. Friendly Beach is an amazing private location for those lazy mornings where you get up, fix a great breakfast in your room in a well equipped kitchen, and take a leisurely walk on a beautiful beach or swim in the ocean! Then 11am hits and it's time to Kite and what a perfect location this is! Friendly Beach is a few steps from the property and is pre-setup with carabiners for self launching and landing. Ask Ray, he's more than happy to share the beach procedure and riding locations with you to ensure things are done correctly. This launch is the best I've found on Maui, free from the gusty winds of Kite Beach and the palm trees of Kihei. The reef west of Camp One is an outstanding spot to ride. It had nice small waves when we were there with ample room inside for gaining ground back upwind or jumping. Just outside the break swells are significant and they line up for a direct downwind ride to Kite Beach so combine your morning walk with dropping your car at Kite Beach (park and walk back) and you'll get an awesome downwinder at the end of your session in safe side-on conditions! Best of all is winding down at the end of the day in the lower level of the house. It is totally set up for a beach life atmosphere complete with an outdoor shower, party lights, and a great lawn! Thanks so much to the Masters' for sharing such an amazing location with us!
