The Space

This is an adorable, one bedroom (optional 2 bedroom-see below) house with high, vaulted ceilings and shiny wood floors. The house is a half block off Hana Highway, less than a mile from Paia town and all North Shore Beaches. The nearest beach access is Tavares Beach, about a 5 minute walk away.

The bedroom has a queen size bed and there is a full size futon/couch in the living area for additional sleeping space. There is a WINDOW A/C in the bedroom and ceiling fans in the bedroom, dining area and living room area. The house is equipped with cable, wi-fi and a full kitchen that has everything you need to feel right at home. There is an outdoor grill with a bistro set out front and another bistro set on the back porch where you can enjoy an afternoon mai tai or for dining al fresco. This house is great for a kite surf vacation, surf vacation or family fun vacation. If you are traveling with extended family or friends who want to be nearby, our Gingerbread House is on the same property, so everybody can be together. See listing

Our neighborhood is for people who want to be away from the big resorts and feel like you are living in a real Maui neighborhood for a while. Your home away from home!

We are a certified vacation rental.

Guest Access

You will have access to outdoor spaces for grilling and socializing. There is free parking beside the house and a shared laundry room with one washer and one dryer. If requested during your stay, we can provide boogie boards, beach mats, umbrellas, chairs, fins, yoga mats, etc. to all of our guests on a first come, first serve bases. Also, local shops rent gear. If you are traveling with a small child, there are baby rental companies that deliver to us.

Interaction with Guests

Sabrina is our on-site manager and can assist you with anything that you might need.

The Neighborhood

Paia town has the best healthfood store on the island (with great prices, local produce, freshly baked goods and a hot food take away bar), lots of delicious restaurants, unique shops, local bakery, gelato parlor, galleries and boutiques.

From Fodor's Best American Small Towns-June 2014.

Population: 2,668

"It can be difficult to find remnants of authentic
Hawaii behind the multitude of resorts, but this is
one of the last holdouts. Located on Maui's northern
coast just off Highway 36, Paia was founded as a
sugarcane enclave and though the sugar mill closed
in 2000, the town is as alive as ever. Boutiques featuring
everything from high-end fashion to beachwear line the
streets, and with some of the world's best windsurfing
spots in the area, you're sure to find an opportunity
to put your new gear to good use. Because it sits along
the route to Hana, the town is pleasantly devoid of major
resorts and offers a great stopping-off place
for a few hours or a few days."

Our notes:

We sit in the within one mile of all North Shore Beaches: Baldwin, Tavares, Paia Bay, Mama's Fish House and Ho'okipa. We are on the mountain side of Hana Highway.

Getting Around

Maui has taxis and a bus system. You can, also, rent a bike for local travel. We, however, highly recommend that you rent a car to see this beautiful island in it's entirety.

Other Things to Note

This house can be rented as a 2 bedroom house. See Airbnb listing:

When the second bedroom is not needed, we lock that door.

ALSO, VERY IMPORTANT!: This house does NOT have central air conditioning. It has a window unit in the bedroom window.

We would like to disclose that our houses are in a tropical environment where permanent, Maui residents live. If this is your first time visiting Hawaii, please know that some insects and geckos may find their way into the house. They are a part of island living and we have learned to coexist with them, especially since they are not dangerous and are much more afraid of us than we should be of them. We strive to keep our houses very clean but this does not mean that the houses will be insect free. Like other rentals in this neighborhood and unlike the huge resorts, time share properties and hotels in the tourist areas, we use limited amounts of minimum impact, natural insecticides since we do not wish to poison ourselves, our guests or the environment. Please keep this in mind when considering booking with us.
