Our stay at Kuau Inn was a lovely one. We felt very welcomed, at home and relaxed. there was a comfy bed, double outdoor shower, lovely bath and breaky provided the next day with a fully serviced kitchen. the only thing we regretted was that we couldn't stay longer. I will definitely return. Thank you so much for having us... More

The Inn is in a great location on the Hana Hwy (NS of Maui) and offers a great accommodation option for those wanting to explore the area. The Inn has great charm and adds to the experience of staying on Maui. The rooms were clean and the communal areas were great to meet people. The Inn Keeper was really helpful... More

It could be that you will be feeling different at the Inn than you are accustomed to. This is also a part of life itself. Sometimes you would want to feel different than you are at home. Sometimes you would want to talk to other people than your coworkers and your family. You can do this at The Inn. The... More

...but with no check-in counter! We only saw the innkeeper once, when we slipped downstairs for water late at night. We stayed in one of the rooms upstairs, and I do not recommend it. The room was too hot and the windows and fan did not help. The highway was noisy. The shared bathroom has a bathtub but NO SHOWER,... More

Thank you very much for the review, Annie. We are sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. You only stayed one night. And because you were there for such a short period of time, we didn’t have the opportunity to meet you since we can’t always meet guests that arrive at different times of the day or night... More

We had a great stay at Kuau Inn. The room and bathrooms were very clean and the owners Julie and her husband were super nice! It was a little warm when we went to Maui, and better cooling would have helped. There was only 1 cooler (no AC) and we were sweating a lot. Apart from that the location is... More

Thank you so much for the review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us! You're right, it has been very hot in Maui lately, too hot for us even! We are getting better fans for the warm nights when there is no breeze to help cool down the rooms. Thanks again! More

Hot and noisy. Ever wonder what it's like to sleep in a developing country? Try the Kuau Inn! Our room was upstairs and had no air conditioning. Only a sad little fan that only blew hot air around. Our room also faced Hana Highway, which is noisy at all hours of the night... except maybe 4am-6am. You can shut the... More

Thank you for your comments. Yes, it can get hot in Hawaii, especially if there are no trade winds. Most people expect it to be hot when they come here. The upstairs rooms will generally cool down with the trade winds if the windows are left open for the cross breeze. We do not have air conditioning in the home... More

My daughter and I had a second wonderful stay at the Kuau Inn... Our first stay was in 2013. The owners, Neal & Julie, do everything they can to keep this a really nice, pleasant and clean place to stay. It really is our cup of tea. Everything is kept clean, the breakfast foods are always restocked, and the location... More

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay in Paia after our Road to Hana trip, and came across this. It was fairly reasonably priced (for Maui) and seemed convenient. Was a little disconcerted when, after I had booked and paid online, we received an email saying there would be an additional $35 "cleaning fee" added to... More

Loved it! Comfortable, well-located, and affordable place to stay on the north side of Maui near Paia. This isn't a party scene or hotel...more like your friend's (super clean) house where you happen to be staying. Other guests were respectful/considerate, late 20s to early 50s couples/etc, mostly folks who enjoyed a beverage or two on the porch at night but... More

This is basically a house with various rooms set aside for travelers. The kitchen is available to all residents, and a small stock of breakfast supplies is available. Rooms are lockable. We had the only room with an en suite, it was comfortable and reasonably roomy. The experience is probably going to depend on who is staying in the other... More
