The Space

Our home is an older style home that has been in the family since 1935. Renovations have been made but we wanted to try and keep as much of the original characteristics as possible. There are 4 rooms and 3 of them have there own lanai's . We live on the property but in a separate dwelling on the other side of the property . We like to have our guests have there privacy and feel as they are at home. However, if you are in need of something, I am just a phone call away and I will do my best to accommodate you.

The Hina Room has a queen size bed, bathroom with shower, vanity, and a twin couch in their room.

Guests also have access to the shared living room, bathroom and kitchen. We have a nice private yard to have a picnic or to just enjoy the fresh air . There is a coin operated washer and a clothesline. We have street parking and carport parking (2 stalls). Carport parking is based on arrival of reservations.

My neighborhood is nice and relaxed. It's awesome to take a walk and enjoy the scenery and meet lots of different people .
There is public transit in Paia town that will take you all over Maui. Paia town is about a 10 minute walk. You will have access to the Post office , laundromat , MANA Foods (health food store), many different ethnic cuisines, art galleries, deli's, yoga classes, and of course the beach. Our house is the half way marker to Hana and to Haleakala. So there are lots to do!!

Interaction with Guests

I usually deal with guests on a daily basis when I come by to tidy up the place or if they need information.

The Neighborhood

My neighborhood is nice and relaxed. It's awesome to take a walk and enjoy the scenery and meet lots of different people . Lots of options for food and very convenient with a pharmacy, grocery store, and post office nearby.

  • We had a great stay at the Hina Room. It's very very clean and comfortable. You meet other people in the kitchen and can have a small talk. Rina is a lovely host who really care about her guests. Especially the very useful things like beachtowels and beachchairs makes it diffrent to other rooms. Highly recommend this place

  • I exteneded my stay on Maui for a few days and wanted a simple, clean, comfortable place to stay in Paia and Mike's House suited my needs very well. Rina is very nice; very kind and helpful. I was able to leave my stuff in room on last day and picked it up early evening before catching flight home. Hana room is clean and comfortable with closed-in porch area with nice view of beach and mountains. Secure locks on doors with personalized codes. Well equipped, shared kitchen and living room. Opportunities to meet other nice travellers. Location is central and active with traffic on Baldwin Ave, roosters crowing and neighbours watching TV at night. Felt like every day, Hawaiian life and a nice way to end my visit.

  • This is a great place to stay! Starting with Rina and her helpful, relaxed and kind ways. The house is perfectly located half way between Hana and Haleakala. It is a 15 minutes drive from the airport, less than 10 minutes walk to Paia-Center with all its shops, restaurants and galleries. Beaches are also nearby.
    You can keep yourself for yourself or meet other guests from all over the world in the full equiped, handy kitchen or in the spacious TV-room. My room was comfortably large and very clean. Wifi worked well. I was provided with a parkingspace on the property.
    I can`t wait to come back again.

  • Aloha, Mike's place was exactly what we expected: friendly, helpful, clean! Once, before our arrival, I mentioned that I like Lilikoi (Passionfruit). When we arrived, Rina had Lilikoi Tea and Jam for us. After couple of days I asked if we could borrow 2 beach chairs, she didn't have any, but guess what? Next day she knocked and had 2 beach chairs on her shoulder, not the flimsy ones, the good ones....we thought that was incredible. The place is not the Hyatt, but comfy and clean. Our room was big enough for us,shower and toilet in the room, all was perfect. We could use the kitchen, which we did every morning. Well, what else is there to say? I told her, whenever we visit Maui, we will stay with her. She gave me/us a bye-bye present: Lilikoi candle, soap and body wash....a Hyatt would not do that !!
    Mahalo Rina, you are a wonderful Host, Franz and Renate

  • Rina's place is a nicest one, situated in a most beautiful place, it is very so cozy, that it feels just like home. Rina is absolutely nice, too, and it is mostly due to her friendliness that you start feeling so at home there the moment you enter the house. Thank you so much, it was a pleasure for us to stay at you place, Rina, hope to see you again!

  • Rina is a very welcoming and helpful hostess. The house is a five-minute walk from downtown Paia but is much bustling with lots of space inside and plenty of parking. The rooms are spacious and well appointed.

    Light sleepers should know that the house is located on Baldwin Avenue, which is a busy road in the early morning, and there are chickens in the area, so you won't need an alarm clock.

  • It was a wonderful time. Rina makes you feel right at home and the house has all the amenities you'll want. Paia is a great little town, with a super organic food store, restaurants, and coffee shops.
    The town is kinda surfer central for the north shore area, with none of the condo sprawl one might find on the west side of the island.
    It's also doable to stay there without renting a vehicle, but some excursions are better with a rental..
    All in all, it was a very positive experience staying at "Mikes House".

  • This house was AWESOME!! Rina, the owner is very cool. She is very laid back, friendly, and helpful!! Any question I had or if I needed anything, text her and she was there!! The house is very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with anything you would need. The water pressure in the shower was AMAZING!! We had a wonderful visit and my experience at Mikes House exceeded all expectations!! Thank you Rina!! I guess in Hawaiian language that is.. Mahalo!! ;)
