A two-minute walk to Paia Town, my little Maui pad is actually a 3-bedroom 2-bath home where my family and I live part time (note: we lock off one of the rooms so only 2 bedrooms and bathrooms are available). Paia is an eclectic and very fun and funky surfer town, a vibrant little community full of interesting boutiques and restaurants.
This house is my little dream beach home. With the help of an interior decorator I took a bunch furniture that I bought in Bali and added a bunch of contemporary touches to turn the house into a modern, clean, uncluttered environment in which to relax after a hard day at the beach.
We are a very short walk to the beach and only 10 minutes to the airport.
Jody's place was perfect for my husband and I. It was just what we were looking for, and had everything we needed. The house was equipped with everything a tourist would need from guide books to beachtowels to snorkels to tuperware and coolers for picnics on the beach.
Paia was a perfect little town with cute shops, beautiful beaches, and some great restaurants. It's right on the edge of town so you can easily walk into town, especially nice when their are various happy hour spots ;) The house was clean and beautifully decorated. We were sad to leave and would stay again in a heartbeat.
We LOVED staying at this sweet house in Paia. Wonderful welcome and easy check in and check out. Nice, clean space that was well-appointed. Delightful outdoor space. Good WiFi. Excellent beach gear, including beach towels and chairs.
Terrific location in Paia. Very close to the main commercial area while still being quiet and in a neighborhood. Easy to walk to Mana Foods and restaurants.
We hope to return soon! Absolutely can recommend.
Really enjoyed Jodi's beautiful home. It was hard to leave! Espresso in the mornings with birds chirping in the peaceful back patio, summery yet modern decor, two minute walk to the town centre. Phuong was helpful and kind. I would stay there again in a flash - thank you.
The best little house in Paia. The house is exactly as described and met all of our needs during our visit to Maui. Very clean, comfortable and located in a nice family community. A short walk to the town of Paia with plenty of surf shops, cafes and restaurants and one evening we bumped into Mick Fleetwood...that was very cool. The house is also a short drive to lots of different beaches including Baldwin, Paia Bay, Lanes and of course Hookipa. If you are coming to Maui I would definitely recommend staying at Jody's peace of heaven in Paia.
Great location. Walking distance to the low key beach town and beach. House was perfect. Just as it is in the pictures. Very relaxing, calm space. Everything was in perfect order and very well organized on both arrival and departure. Having access to beach towels and chairs was a big bonus. A great home away from home.
A perfect place to call home in an ideal local town full of character. We were reluctant to leave and would highly recommend this perfect little house in Pa'ia.
Not a hiccup from booking to checkout, we were instantly welcomed and made to feel at home. All the mod cons and comforts you need for a trip full of adventure and relaxation. Plenty of space, surrounded by foliage and plants, creating a cozy and airy atmosphere. The area is quiet with little light pollution, perfect for the star gazing opportunist. (I have never slept so well.) Within the shortest walk you're in the centre of Paia, ideal for the type of traveller that prefers to be in the middle of local life. Though few, the eateries are excellent, offering local products packed with all things delicious. Watch out for the shopping, it's good and has the best bikini shop, or so says my girlfriend who's spending spree was of Olympic proportions. Within minutes there's the soft white sands of Pa'ia bay, and a beach-side trail westwards to Baldwin beach. The surf attracts surfers, body borders and on glassy days, relaxing/playful swims with a few little pools along the way. For you road trippers, the whole of Maui is easily reached in under an hour.
The heading says it all...it is indeed a great little house with comfortable beds and lanai. It's nicely furnished (both bedrooms are nice), well located (a quick 5 minute walk to the center of Paia and away from the main road noise), and there are beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach towels, and Maui guide book to use. Personally, I'm all about the amenities and the sweet pineapple and Nespresso coffee was a very nice touch...thank you Jody and Phuong!
We had a great stay at Jody's house. Everything you could possibly need was available at the house. Great location to Paia town and shops and restaurants. House has a fully stocked kitchen if you want to shop for groceries at Mana Foods to have a night in. Phuong, the neighbor, is extremely nice and accommodating and answered all our questions.
Can't wait to return!
We had a wonderful time staying in this lovely home in Paia! The home looks just like it does in the pictures, and is absolutely perfect for a relaxing stay in Maui. It was great to have beach chairs, an umbrella, coolers, beach towels, and snorkeling equipment there for our use. The kitchen was also well equipped, and the bed comfy! There are two bathrooms, one with a shower downstairs, and one with a shower/tub combo upstairs. I loved staying in Paia and being able to walk down to good restaurants and cute shops within minutes. A couple of beaches were nearby, as well, and when we felt like going elsewhere I found driving to the west or south of Maui to be nice journey. I would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing, nice place to stay while in Maui. I loved every second of our trip, and we are already planning to go back sometime soon!
My husband and I recently stayed at Jody’s place for our honeymoon. I’ve used Airbnb a number of times and this was by far the best one yet! Jody’s Hawaiian house is just fabulous. It is very clean, has lovely decor, is so very quiet, and has absolutely everything you’d need: towels, snorkel gear, fully equipped kitchen, a cozy lanai and a BBQ for grilling fresh fish. The house is in the perfect part of Maui in our opinion. Paia is a wonderful little laid back town, with great food. It’s in the perfect location for you to easily get anywhere else on the island, and the beaches are wonderful.
Jody’s neighbor, Phuong greeted our arrival and helped us get settled in. She was so friendly and helpful throughout our stay.
I will definitely be recommending Jody’s place to any friends or family who travel to Maui in future. Thank you Jody & Phuong!
