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

The property itself was nice and as with any vacation rental, there were both pros and cons. My husband and I travel a lot and I have to admit that I return to and recommend those places which I feel deserve to have more business...because the business offered is something that I feel is worthy. Although there were definitely some... More

There are other places to stay on majestic Maui, I am certain however, there are no other places as magical as the Kuau Inn, in Paia. A simple B&B with all the charming amenities and without the hassle. You feel at home here. The fridge is stocked with the basics and there's a lovely grocery in Paia for specific dietary... More

This B&B is a converted house that has 5 rooms and 2 - 3 community bathrooms. The young, friendly innkeepers live in a 6th bedroom and seem to be avid surfers. The upstairs bathroom has a tub without a shower, so we generally used the bathroom next to the kitchen for bathing. Everything was clean; the bed was comfortable. The... More

The house is very beautiful, rooms are very clean and comfortable. No a/c so it could get a little warm during the day, but at nights it was perfect. Rooms are not cleaned though or fixed and you prepare your own breakfast. On the other side, you can use the kitchen to cook if you need it.

Kuau inn is located in a quiet place away from the most touristy locations. You will find breakfast in the fridge and lovely people taking care of you. I would recommend eggs in a hole for breakfast, which is a Kuau inn speciality. If you dont know how to make it, you can ask the hosts, Haley and Ryan, they... More

We had the downstairs back room, with an ensuite bathroom and shower. It was small, but comfortable and private. It was nice to have food and fridge available, and to be able to come and go on our own schedule. It would have been hot during the day, but we spent most of the days out. Evenings cooled down, and... More

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.
