The Space

Located off the beaten path on North Shore of Maui and tucked snugly between the sugar cane fields and a vibrant shores of Paia, this Hawaiian style accommodation offers a charming studio.
Spacious studio is remodeled with a queen size bed, bathroom with shower, little kitchenette with fridge, toaster oven and basic kitchen equipment. Large covered lanai offers Hawaiian style outdoor living. It is on second floor in two story building overlooking the (website hidden)’ia Town is bustling with a diversity of restaurants, unique boutiques, yoga studios and local art galleries.
Conveniently located to explore other attractions such as the spectacular Haleakala crater, rainforest hikes and waterfalls on Hana Hwy.

The North Shore is a wonderful and special place to spend a vacation in Maui, especially for lovers of surfing, windsurfing, and kite boarding. Ho’okipa, world-renowned beach, is located just couple of minutes by car from apartment.
Tavares Beach is the closest beach (5 minutes walking) distance. It is good for swimming, snorkeling, spear fishing, rock jumping, surfing and windsurfing. Off the radar for tourists, it is usually uncrowded during the week.
Baldwin Beach is one of Maui’s most beautiful white sand beaches. During winter months, the main stretch of beach can have fairly large and regular shore-break, so it becomes a popular destination for more experienced boogie-boarders. There are also protected swimming areas on both the east and west ends that offer calm pools for even the littlest ones. (The west end is know as Baby Beach and the east as Baldwin Cove).

Sit on your lanai and enjoy a view of the pacific ocean and palm trees and breath the pacific happiness!!

  • This studio is really a room in a house and not worth the price. At 6:30 AM we could hear every possible sound from the kitchen separated from us with a door with big crack (we could hear sizzling omelet - to give you an idea how bad it was). We were told that there are other guests in the house...but it looked like this was actually a family that lives there (crying baby included). If you think about secluded romantic getaway - "Tropical Studio" is definitively NOT IT:) The place has no privacy at all. There is no AC and the place gets really hot at night. If you are planning on sleeping with open door don't forget mosquito replant (indoor and outdoor) otherwise you are going to fight the mosquitoes all night long...
    Overall this is not a terrible place to crash in (you are in Maui after all) but definitively not for the price. I agree with the previous comment: "This place feels like the owner is trying to squeeze money out of a house. At $75 it would be fair".

  • Petr was nice and Lenka sent us nice info on Maui. The deck is beautiful and has a nice view. Good people live here and around here... But as far as the rental goes...

    This "studio" was more of a room in a house that was somewhat awkwardly sealed off than its own self-contained unit. It was easy to hear everyone in the house and, unfortunately, the room had many bugs getting in through unsealed cracks. I did not find it to be a good value – for the price being asked you can do much better somewhere else. This place feels like the owner is trying to squeeze money out of a house. At $75 it would be fair. Further, there is another room right next to this one which apparently also gets rented. It wasn't rented when we were there- a good thing since otherwise there would be no privacy at all.

  • Quiet with country feel. Close to beach. About 15 min walk or 3 min drive to town. Great host.

  • The best part of the experience was the hospitable and informative manager/host. This small corner room (inaccurately advertised as a studio) had a comfortable bed but was minimally equipped with a toaster, fridge and coffeepot. The wide lanai, which is unlit at night, had artistic but very uncomfortable chairs, and was poorly apportioned to different rooms, which meant other guests sat and smoked in front of our windows. There was no privacy! This was our first airbnb experience and it was not a winner, despite the terrific host, Petr.

  • Lenka and Petr were great hosts. The apartment is on a secluded street right of Hana Hwy (Road to Hana!), few minutes from the town of Paia and world famous surf spot Jaws. We took trips to the south shore to explore the island but we spent most of the time on the beach close to home, small, "private" and so relaxing. If you are looking for the true Hawaii life experience call Lenka now!! Aloha!
