Paia, Maui, Hawaii
Maui by the Sea is a beautiful vacation rental - an ideal ocean-view cottage located between Paia and Hookipa, on Maui's scenic and exciting North Shore. Our two-story plantation-style cottage has gorgeous views of a sapphire ocean with dancing waves. Simply sit back and relax on the private covered lanai and enjoy the view!
The 500 sq.feet air-conditioned apartment is upstairs (downstairs is the open garage), surrounded by a lovely Hawaiian tropical garden with bamboos, palm trees, gingers, heliconias and fruit trees. The inside is cozy and elegant. A separate bedroom with a queen-sized bed, full bath, and full kitchen complement the layout.

Our hosts, Valerie and Craig were just above and beyond gracious, kind, helpful and generous. Location was perfect to explore the entire island, which we did. And a perfect place to come back to and relax. Lanai was excellent, loved having coffee...

This was our 2nd stay and we stayed 9 nights. The 1st time we divided our time between here and another location and were sad when time came to leave. We love Paia and Maui-by-the-Sea. The cottage is hip, beautiful hardwood floors, big veranda over looking fruit trees with views of ocean behind them. In the morning we check out...

We split up our stay on Maui spending the first half on Napili Bay and the second half in Paia. Each location was extremely different from the other. Paia is a very unique little town. I love how everyone is so friendly, yet come from very different backgrounds. Paia had some of the best restaurants on the island. Maui by...

Management response:
