Paia condo description

Hawaii Tax ID: W01836408-01. Located on Maui's North Shore just steps from Kuau Cove and world Famous Mama's Fish House Restaurant this 3rd floor unit offers an ocean view off the lanai/living room and gorgeous view of Haleakala and surrounding sugarcane fields out the back door.

Literally, a 1 minute walk to the sandy cove/beach. A small reef 20 yards off-shore protects the shoreline from heavy surge making a nice 'tide pool' type beach...great for a short, calm swim.

One minute drive west to historic Paia Town with shops, restaurants, art galleries, etc. One minute drive east to Ho'okipa Beach Park with the most consistent windsurfing and surfing on Maui. Central location and generally year-round great weather make this a fantastic value.

                                        I just like to say that the owner Josh was incredibly friendly and helpful. This was our first visit to Maui and were happy we stayed here. The place when first arriving was a bit rough going up and down the stairs with all the luggage however when we got in the condo it was very nice and clean. The pictures on here don't to it justice. It really is a home away from home. We made the best choice by getting a rental car for our entire visit to the island and it was the best decision. The condo is near Paia and away from most tourist areas. However Lahaina was only about a 15 minute drive where costco and Wal-Mart are. Mamas is close, very spendy but worth it. We skipped the drinks because there was nothing special about them however the food was amazing. If you can order fresh coffee you won't regret it!! Only suggestion made was from my wife who wished there was a full length mirror nothing special just something she could use to get ready and not have to occupy the restroom so I could use it. Other than that, the car noise wasn't too bad the view from the porch was great. Well deff be staying here again.

                                        Well, the location was convienient, except for being at a bend in the highway with major traffic sounds. It took a half hour to get in the front door, because of the old rusty lock box, and rusty locks. When I called owner, he simply assured me it worked, that I just had to pull in while I used it. He told me to go walk around until he got around to coming by to let us in, in over an hour. Well, we had just dragged suitcases up 3 flights of stairs and I had melting kids and ice cream, so I kept trying. I finally got it using all my strength to pull in while jiggling the lock, and I am very strong. Owner did come grease the lock the next day, which made it open easier. But my kids were not able to open either door, the back sliding door took emense strength to slide as well. The back porch had a nice view but there was no screen in the door, or in the windows, and it was very hot, especially being on the 3rd floor, so our choices were between sweltering inside closed doors, or being devoured by mosquitoes for a crack of fresh air. We did plenty of both. Also the hideabed in the living room was a painful jumble of springs, with garbage and piles of dust under it. The kitchen was nice, although the only cookware was scratched Teflon, which is very toxic, and many of the dishes were dirty. This place would be greatly improved by some screens, a futon or comfortable hideabed, and proper cookware, as well as doors that work, of course, and some better cleaning. Until then, I'd only recomend it to surfers, and surf lovers, it's right next to hookipa! Definately not suitable for elders, small children, people with disabilities, or women with aesthetics.

                                        The apartment was on the third floor of a 1970s (guessing) apartment building. It was updated and nicely furnished with a stove and oven, full sized fridge, but no dishwasher in the kitchen. The bed could be larger and firmer. There are communal barbeques and laundry, and for entertainment, a parrot that comes out of an adjacent unit at sunset and sits in the palm trees. The beach is a very short walk away, adjacent to Mama's Fish House. It is absolutely lovely. It would be great for young families. The water is shallow and the snorkeling is great. We saw more fish here than any other beach. Another close beach we liked was off of Nonohe street just past Baldwin Beach. It is not marked, at all, but you turn off the highway onto Nonohe street, then find the one road not marked "no outlet" which takes you to the water. There is a reef that runs parallel to the beach, leaving a shallow calm canal to swim laps. The one problem with the unit was the traffic noise. The bedroom is in front and Hana Highway is surprisingly busy. Paia is a nice little hippie town about a mile down the highway, making a traffic bottleneck, so it takes longer than you think it might to get anywhere.

                                        We certainly enjoyed our week long stay at this conveniently located condo in Kuau Plaza. The kitchen was well furnished with everything you would need to prepare many meals, although I will admit, we chose to visit a different restaurant for every meal! The unique design of the California style closet is a wonderful addition to the bedroom, providing lots of shelves and drawers to stow our vacation clothing and scuba gear, as well as ample space for hanging clothing. We found the linens and downy soft pillows made for a comfortable night's sleep, although the continuous hum of Hana Highway traffic, did take a few nights to get used to. Not having additional parking available was a little frustrating, especially as our daughter lives nearby and came to visit. After talking to a couple of very friendly tenants in the parking lot, I was pleasantly surprised to find everyone was willing to share their spot, in their absence! The beach is a short walk from the condo and it's a nice, quiet location to sit and watch the sun go down. If ever we return to Maui, I will look into returning to this VRBO location. To say a thing or two about the owner of the condo; Josh is easy to reach and he went above and beyond when we called him in a bit of a panic from the airport. We realized my husband's keys were missing when we arrived at the airport and Josh was kind enough to go to the condo to see if he could find them. He also called the day after we arrived to make sure everything was in good working order. In short, if you are looking for a place to stay on the North Shore, you will find a great little home-away-from-home at Kuau Plaza. P.S. Our keys are still there somewhere, so if you happen to find them, will you please contact Josh! Mahalo!

                                        Great, little condo for the price. It was very comfortable and clean. When the wind is blowing, it's quite cool. The location is great for the North Shore...close to Paia and up country. Great beaches for windsurfing/surfing are super close. You can walk to "Mama' Beach" which is right in front of Mama's Fish House restaurant. It's not a great swimming beach, but very peaceful and nice. My only complaints, which other people had written about are: the bedroom is super load due to the traffic on the Hana Hwy. The bedroom windows need to be open to keep it cool, so that makes the traffic very loud. Also, I didn't like the bedding on the bed. It the mattress cover and fitted sheet were super loose, so it got all wrinkly and uncomfortable each night. The bed is pretty soft too, which was not that great for me. I donated a corkscrew to the unit, since it didn't have one. It could use a good cutting board. I used a big wood one that I found in a cupboard, but it was HUGE and heady. It could also use a cheese grater. Other than that, it had enough cooking utilities to make basic meals. Overall, it was a nice place to stay.

                                        Owner response: Thank you for your feedback. We just purchased a brand new, top quality leather love seat for the unit. Looks great and is super comfortable for lounging...Maui-style.

                                        This condo is well located, but you definitely need a car to go in Paia and at the beach (Baldwin beach). Still nice, the little beach near the condo is not for swimming. Paia is a nice little town with affordable restaurants and many boutiques. The grocery is organic and may be costly if you don't go to a bigger one in Kahului. Concerning the condo, it is spacious and the bedroom is separated from the kitchen and the living room. It is cute, clean and has a lot of storages. Though, the mattress needs to be changed because it worns down in the middle. Also, the bedroom is facing the highway, which is very noisy. Overall, we had a good seven days stay and we recommand this place.

                                        Location: This place is conveniently close to Paia, but not within 'casual' walking distance. only 10 minutes away from Wailuku shopping. Mama's fish house is right next door, but it's a pricey restaurant. Great place to be if you're looking to travel around Hana highway. Comfort: The bed is very comfortable. Pillows/blankets were provided. Kitchen with a small fridge and plates/utensils/pots/pans/coffee maker, etc. Buy your own cooking oil/salt/sugar if you want to cook. Sponge/dish soap were provided. Cleaniness: The place was clean. Noise: The rental is located right next to the Hana highway, so road noise is there between 9am to 8pm. If you're an early riser, this is not a problem, as the neighborhood quiets down significantly during the night. Owner: The owner was responsive and friendly. Misc Complaints: We found the following: Some of the light bulbs didn't work, leaving the living room and bed room feeling dark. Some previous tenant unscrewed the shower knob. The some of the back windows (which are shutter type) were stuck and couldn't be shut to reduce outside noise. Overall: The price was very reasonable for this place. I would stay here again in the future if I could.

                                        This place looks like a prison from the street. The best part of the unit is the pleasant balcony on the 3rd floor overlooking a lawn & some tall palm trees. Place is close to Paia shopping district which you can check out in one day. The nearest beach is nice to watch a sunset on but can't really swim there. If you can afford to eat at Mama's Fish House then you will be happy to find out it is next door. The bad part is the bed, very uncomfortable & squeaks with every movement. Also wish we knew that construction workers would show up each morning at 7:30am to work on the concrete floor directly outside the front door.

                                        Owner response: The concrete work was being done for required safety considerations and is now complete. The job happens about once every 10 years. Today we bought and installed a new temperpedic queen bed set. Over the last two days the unit has been freshly painted in all rooms. The beach referenced above is swimmable, but only when the ocean conditions are mellow. If the waves are too large at the beach out front there is always the protected tidepool for a quick dip or Hookipa beach park is about 1/2 mile away and can be walked to or you may take a very short drive...less than a minute. As with all north facing shores in Hawaii large waves occur (mostly in the winter) and we strongly advise watching the ocean for at least 20 minutes before swimming and/or checking with the locals or lifeguards before going out. Mahalo!

                                        We rented this condo for 2 weeks and loved it! Everything was just as described. Great local side of Maui, super cool town of Paia which was local and laid back with great resturants and shopping. Condo was super clean, great stone bathroom, remodeled kitchen - had everything we needed. Owner super easy to deal with. Right on the Hana Hwy next to Ho'okipa Beach...we will be back for sure and I would recommend to anyone not looking for a tourist big hotel experience.

                                        Recommended for: Romantic getaway, families with young children, sightseeing, adventure seekers, age 55+.
