Experience a delightful part of “old Hawaii” with all modern conveniences by staying at the Menehune Cottage in Kuau, one of the coolest little neighborhoods on the island and only steps away from the endless fun activities that Maui’s North Shore has to offer; windsurfing, kiting, surfing, dining at Mama’s Fish House, playing in the tide pools on Mama’s beach, swimming, cycling, shopping in Paia, walking/running on beautiful Baldwin beach and much more!!!!

Nestled in a tropical garden the Menehune Cottage has two large bedrooms with queen beds and all cotton sheets, a bathroom with shower, a warm out-door shower, private laundry with 1/2 bath included, a spacious living room, and a full kitchen. The interior of this cottage feels like 'old style' Hawaii , an inviting 'home away from home' - full of the spirit of aloha. There is a patio area with dining furniture and a gas BBQ to fully enjoy easy outdoor living in the balmy evenings.

Beach chairs, good quality beach towels and a cooler are provided for your relaxing beach days. There is also good Wi Fi connection. There is private parking for 2 cars.

Next door is the Menehune House a charming “beach house” style home with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. For more information check out our website which has full details. The cottage or house can be rented separately or together.

The property is located in Kuau Point, a residential sea-side outcropping near Paia, on Maui's well-loved North Shore. It is within easy walking distance of the Kuau Channel for sunset relaxation or advanced windsurfer's launch to sail with the locals. Beginner and intermediate windsurfers can drive to nearby Kanaha Beach, with sand, shade and lessons!!
You are a short stroll away from the brand new Kuau Store deli, trendy and convenient, healthy food to go, groceries and even expresso!! Open 6.30am - 7pm daily. Walk through the neighborhood to the #1 rated beach front restaurant on Maui, Mama’s Fish House.

In just a couple of minutes drive you are at Ho'okipa beach for more windsurfing & surfing action, or relaxing on the beautiful sandy beach to watch it all happen! Advanced kiting launch nearby. Just 15 minutes from Kahului Airport (OGG), and centrally located to many other Maui attractions, such as seeing the sunrise from Haleakala crater or driving the beautiful winding road to Hana.

Less than 5 minutes drive brings you into Paia town... the home of Mana Foods for fresh organic one-stop shopping, and a splendid mix of restaurants, coffee-shops, trendy boutiques, bank, and post office. Crazy about cycling? Rent a bike from Go Cycling Maui in Paia, or take their tour. They call it '...sort of a fantasy camp for cyclists'.

All the best North Shore beaches surround Paia, including Baldwin Beach, perfect for early morning walks or a swim.
Come, discover for yourself! We'd love to have you!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1993

          About the owner: I grew up in New Zealand, I lived in Vail Colorado for over 20 years teaching skiing and developing a unique program Dynamic Skiing for Life. My husband and I started coming to Maui to windsurf, surf and scuba dive in the 80s as a perfect way to continue our love of the outdoors but this time we were playing in the ocean instead of on the mountains. We fell in love with Maui and the north shore and we bought our property in the early 90s. With a lot of love and family help we created the Menehune Cottage for vacation rental from the original Hawaiian home on this property. We love the location which is close to everything we love to do and we have enjoyed sharing this with our guests. Maui is a special place with its mountains, ocean, rainbows, soft air, music and the people. We have made this our home and now instead we visit the mountains for a little skiing, but we always return home.

          Why the Owner Chose Kuau:
          3 mins walk to the beach, we can rig on the lawn and windsurf at the Kuau channel, close to everything we love and need - Paia is less than 5 mins away, also Baldwin beach for early morning runs and a couple of minutes from Hookipa beach - it is convenient and delightful

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          old Hawaiian charm, friendly knowledgeable owners, comfortable, quiet, short stroll to ocean through neighborhood, easy off street parking, centrally located on island, close to historic town of Paia, close to beaches
