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.

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
