such a great place to stay! Close to all the north shore (wind)surf beaches - close totha crater (1,5h drive) and right next to paia where you'll find a few good restaurants and shops. Everything is clean, parking is for free and I loved the outdoor shower.

Just want we were looking for- perfect 2 night stay very close to Paia town, Mommas fish house and great surfing beach with an abundance of sea turtles. Inn keeper Lindsay was great and kept the house spotless and had the kitchen stocked with coffee and fresh local fruit. Only negative note is the house does not have AC- very... More

The home is absolutely fantastic. Tons of charm and great hostess. It was spotless and everything you could possibly need was there. The only issue we had was that it's very warm upstairs and even with the fans on, with the windows open, you could hear the traffic. It's perfectly situated a mile from the intersection and down the street... More

We arrived in Maui and headed straight to kuau inn. We spent 3 nights and 4 days and had a great time. Our hostess/innkeeper was fabulous. Always willing to chat, share her knowledge and experiences on the island and help out in any way. We loved the relaxed feel to the place....breakfast was self serve which was great for us.... More

From the moment I turned up and was shown around by the friendly innkeeper, I fell in love with this beautiful house. Unfortunately I was only staying one night, but would definitely recommend to others. Paia is a cute little town to explore, about a 15 min walk along the highway. I caught the bus from the airport which stops... More

Host was great, house was very nice, really wished we could have stayed there for the 3 days we paid for. Unfortunately, the day we arrived Maui hit 96 degrees at the shoreline and at midnight the house was still in the mid to upper 80's with high humidity. We couldn't sleep, even with the fans. We really liked the... More

Lovely old plantation house on the edge of a sugar cane field just a mile down the road from the charming town of Paia, where there are a number of good restaurants and shops. Also close to a great windsurfing beach and just about an hour from Lahaina, where we had one of the best Fourth of July celebrations ever.... More

Stayed as a group and so had the entire place (were forced to rent entire property even though we only needed 4 of the rooms), might be odd to share with strangers - bathrooms near rooms & close together (especially one of the bedrooms on the side whose door is next to two bathroom doors). Property is nice (but right... More

A different take of B&B. Many different types of breakfast items are available and you help yourself. The kitchen was a good meeting place to meet up and get to know the house mates. Outside on the lanai was another large table set to gather at. Lindsey, the inn keeper, did a great job of keeping the house clean and... More
