This lovely house is well maintained and has a great relaxing vibe. We had the downstairs back room with an ensuite bathroom. The fact that it is on Hana Hwy means it's super convenient to Beaches, Paia , Mama's Fish House and even a cute little store across the street with expresso coffee. The place had all the amenities you... More

very nice little place, conveniently located near mamas fish house, hookipa beach and start to road to hana. No AC in our room which made it very hot during the day but cools down and is a non issue at night for sleeping. There's really no reason to be in the room during the day anyway. Shower is outside and... More

Hi, this is a cute, clean and well run place. The hosts are wonderful. My only complaint was the highway traffic which woke us up a few times during the night. If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room facing away from the Hana highway. The outdoor shower is lovely, as are the people who run this place.

I spent 3 nights at the Kuau Inn with my brother. First of all the Bed & Breakfast is situated in a prime location, being only two blocks from the beach and minutes from Paia. Secondly, Ryan and Hailey - the Inn-Keepers - were awesome. They provided all the necessary amenities and the fridge was always stocked with food for... More

Me and my friend spent 3 nights in room 4, which is located downstairs between kitchen and living room. Kuau Inn is an older house, but very well maintained and exudes charm which you make feel at home right away. We loved the Hibiskus bedcovers. The shared bathroom is located through the kitchen. The Inn is kept clean, the kitchen... More

We had such a lovely three night visit to the Inn. We had the downstairs room with private bath. The linens were beautiful and the room was very comfortable. The full access to this warm and lovely home was wonderful. The kitchen was fully stocked with breakfast provisions and seasonings for preparing any meal. We really enjoyed the short walk... More

Kuau Inn was just a short drive from the airport and minutes from Paia and Mama's Fish House. The rooms were comfortable and clean, fridge was well-stocked, and innkeepers were knowledgeable and friendly. In addition to the innkeepers, dozens of guidebooks are available on the shelves, so you have lots of help planning your fun in Maui.

I was at the Kuau Inn for four nights in February of 2014. I really enjoyed the friendliness and facilities. The outdoor shower was awesome!! The fresh fruit was wonderful and varied and the muffins, although store bought, were delicious. I would definitely stay there again. I was on the second floor and although there were traffic noises, they didn't... More

We were only here a short time (came in late afternoon and left first thing in the morning- headed up to the Haleakala Crater). We met the Inn keepers and also the owners...all were very nice. They gave us suggestions on what to check out while we were only on this side of Maui for one day. Would certainly be... More

I just returned home from a 4 night stay at the Kuau Inn and I can't wait to go back. It was exactly what I was looking - cozy, comfortable, clean, away from the crowds and really reasonable. The stocked kitchen and self-serve breakfast of eggs, fresh fruit, bagels, juice and coffee allowed me to happily be on my own... More
