Situated between Kanaha and Baldwin Beach Parks (and a tack from Camp One), our lovely rental suite offers vacationers of all types the perfect place to enjoy the aloha of Maui....and the perfect place to relax. A beautiful soft sand shore line make for the perfect launch or swim site. Many reef formations afford the intermediate and expert windsurfers and kiters plenty of 'air time' opportunities!

A special and unique feature of the suite is the fabulous collection of original artworks by a famous local artist adorning the walls of the suite and downstairs gallery.

Maui's North Shore is regarded as the quieter side of the island. But don't let this sentiment fool you. In addition to all of the usual outdoor activities, the area surrounding us boasts some of the best dining, entertainment and shopping on Maui. The picturesque old town of Paia is just minutes drive from us and offers an eclectic mix of dining, bars, general stores, boutiques and gift shops. Equally nearby is Kahului which features the Queen Ka'ahumanu Center shopping mall, lots of restaurants and many of the usual stores found on the mainland. In contrast, a visit to the Kahului Flea Market will always unearth unusual items and bargains. The towns of Wailuku and Makawao are also close by for more shopping and entertainment choices.
The Hanawii suite is located on the upper floor of the house in the west wing. This spacious suite comprises of a large living room/dining area with fully equipped kitchen. Everything is included to allow you to prepare the most lavish or simple meals.
The queen bedroom and adjoining bathroom are also bright and roomy. Both main rooms have large glass sliding doors which open onto the large private deck. Plenty of room to eat or just relax while enjoying beautiful ocean and mountain views. The Hanawi suite is perfect for after ocean activity relaxation. TV, video and music systems complement the comfortable furnishings and colorful decor for that home away from home feeling. Fabulous original works of art adorn the walls. Cook up your pasta masterpiece in the easy to use kitchen. Or grab a towel and a glass of wine and stroll down to our friendly windsurfing beach for an evening you'll never forget.

Fantastic beach location with direct beach access
Fantastic beach location with direct beach access
This beach location is fantastic and very convenient for the whole family. The kids loved the Friendly Beach as much as cruising with their skateboards on the safe street outside. The beach was very safe and pleasant (very little rocks) for our energetic 10 and 8 year old boys. My wife enjoyed long walks (you can walk on the beach all the way down to Kanaha Beach Park and beyond, and up towards Sprecks) as well as chilling with her book in beach chairs supplied to us by landlords Ray and Vivian. In the afternoons, I loved to windsurf directly from the beach and it is very convenient and time saving having the gear rigged and ready in the watertoy storage shed in the garden. When sailing, I could choose to cruise on the inside of the reefs or venture out there to jump and ride the waves together with five or ten other sailors on a good day. It was just perfect. The sea view from the balcony is very nice even though it is in second row from the water. Thanks a lot Ray and Vivian for a great stay. It was perfect for us.

AMAZING location on the North Shore of Maui, with a soft sandy beach...A soft sandy beach is actually hard to fing on the N shore but Friendly beach is just that. Private Kite/windsurf beach with a superior launch to those found at kite beach/naish beach,etc. Grounds are lush and well maintained with fruit trees on site and a good view of the ocean from the deck. Ray and Vivian, your hosts are more than hospitable and their recomondations were spot on everytime! If you are looking for the ultimate kite,windsurf,sup,snorkel,etc location this is it!! Thanks for an amazing 1st trip to Maui, we will be back soon

Great base for a family holiday on Maui
Great base for a family holiday on Maui
Family consisted of 2 adults and 2 kids 13years old and 11 years old. The property proved great for us because; 10 minutes from Airport. 10 minutes from the great town of Paia. Windsurfed straight out the front. Family did lots of snorkelling in front of the house. Great cafe's at Paia. Great shopping at nearby Kahului. (ie Ross) Property was clean and had all we needed. Cooking, TV, broadband etc. BBQ downstairs. Great storage for surf/sailing equipment. Good parking for the hire car. Listing was accurate. The owners Ray and Viv had plenty of great advice to help us through each day. We loved the Sunrider bike ride down Haleakala mountain. Joe was Great. All of Paia's restaurants were great. Windsurf rental was from Matt Pritchard, car from Alamo, SUP from Maui Windsurfing. I would without hesitation recommend this property for someone wanting a good clean property, on the beach and central to all of the attractions that Maui has to offer.

Epic vacation at Friendly Beach
Epic vacation at Friendly Beach
From day one we experienced magical windsurfing conditions at Camp One. For three weeks we sailed with small sails (4.2 m2) and waveboards (78 - 84L) in constant trade winds (side shore) and for this time of year unusual high waves (with a few swells). As for accommodation and owners, we stayed in a very comfortable apartment and got a first class service. The owners, Ray and Vivienne, were very pleasant and helpful when it comes to tips and advice on windsurfing, shopping and exciting attractions. Overall, my son and I remember this holiday as the ultimate windsurf trip with 100% wind days. Stable Road, Camp One and Friendly Beach is a perfect combination for windsurfers who are aiming to new levels. Aloha and Mahalo to Ray and Vivienne

It's only one thing to say about the place: PARADISE!!!!!!!!! We (familiy with two kids) stayed there for 11 days, and had the best time of our lives. Hope to come back some time.

Owner response: Fredrik..it was great having you all stay here. We love it when our guests are so obviously having a GREAT time! To see the smile on all your faces every day is why we love doing this! Say hi to our favorite hula girls! Mahalo...aloha...and see you again soon.
Awesome experience! I cannot say enough good things about this location, the unit or the hosts Ray and Vivienne. I was there for two weeks, and had the most relaxing, fun filled time kiting, surfing and snorkeling right there in Spreckelsville at friendly beach. In the mornings we would walk the beach for a mile finding great shells and beach glass along a stretch that has natural dunes and beautiful tide pools and then snorkel back, taking in the amazing coral heads inhabited by colorful tropical fish, moray eels, octopus and my favorite, the sea turtles! Then we would make breakfast at the unit, totally ample kitchen, eat it on the deck with it's spectacular view and then get ready take on the day kiting or sailing right there at friendly beach! What's great is how close everything is from this location, Paia and Kahului, 5 mins away for shopping or dining out and easy access to the other side of the island. Really a great home base and Ray and Vivienne are great hosts, very accommodating and friendly who let you do your own thing and saved us both money and time with their local knowledge and aloha. I will not stay anywhere else when I come to Maui and highly recommend booking this place to anyone looking for the perfect spot for an active and relaxing stay! Hope this review helps and can't wait to get back! Aloha.

Owner response: Many mahalos for your kind words Jobe. We had some fun eh! So glad you introduced me the the outstanding snorkeling in my back yard! Who'd have thunk it! It was great to see you fully embrace the whole maui experience. Wow you did so many things! We also had a great time hanging with you and look forward to your next visit. Much aloha!
This is the second time we’ve stayed at Ray’s and each time we have had a truly great holiday. The apartment is very clean and has everything you need for self-sufficiency if you don’t want to eat out along with all mod cons in case you wanted to stay in tho with all Maui has to offer this will be unlikely. It’s a great base in general but particularly for the north shore with it’s beach halfway between Kanaha and Sprecks , the lovely town of Paia and Hookipa a few mins away by car. If you windsurf/kite or SUP then the outstanding thing about Friendlybeach is the location – you are a few yards away from camp one ( great location for all levels) and unless you stay in one of the local properties like Ray’s then you aren’t really going to be able to sail here unless you sail upwind from Kanaha or downwind from Sprecks. You can leave your kit at the bottom of the garden and carry it a whole 20yds or so to the water’s edge on the beach - you can be playing in the waves on the reef a few minutes after deciding to go! If you have to share the water with anyone there’s a fair chance it’ll be someone famous and much more talented! The beach is beautiful, clean and most of the time you are likely to have to share it with a couple of people if at all. Ray and Vivienne are great, laidback hosts and if there’s anything else you might require Ray will v likely sort it out for you without any fuss.

Great place for baby and us
Great place for baby and us
Fantastic week-long stay. We arrived to find the suite impeccably clean, already equipped with a rental crib in the bedroom for our six month old, and there were two cold beverages chilling in the fridge (after 13hrs of flights and transfers, this was heaven). The efficient design gives the suite a very roomy feel and it truly had all the amenities that we needed and more. The most amazing feature of this place: a stone's throw to a wonderful, quiet beach. We noticed the planes in the beginning but then less so as we continued to settle in and the baby slept through all of her naps and the nights without issue. Great place, fantastic hosts. Would definitely stay here again. Thank-you Ray, Vivienne and Sevin!

5+++++ stars!! Best vacation ever!!
5+++++ stars!! Best vacation ever!!
If you're even thinking about renting this suite, snatch it up before someone else does!!! My wife and I recently stayed at Ray and Vivienne's suite for 10 days. We've vacationed in Maui many times in the past, but this visit was easily our favorite! The suite was clean and comfortable, and it's impossible to beat the proximity of the beach. We had planned to see more of the island during our stay, but most days ended up lounging in the room or down at the beach reading and drinking piña coladas. We were so relaxed that it was hard to find a reason to leave the house! Ray and Vivienne were the perfect hosts. They were always happy to chat or give us some great insider tips on the island, but also gave us complete privacy when we wanted it. They cooked us dinner on our last night, and we ended up having such a great time that we missed our flight & had to take the next one. A sign of a great trip! Regarding the proximity to the airport... Yes, we did hear planes taking off, but it wasn't the least bit distracting. The noise is pretty sporadic throughout the day, and literally only lasts a few seconds at a time. I think the latest plane we heard was around 10pm & the earliest around 10am. Needless-to-say, we slept like babies. If you're looking for a secluded getaway away from all the tourist traps with access to an essentially private beach (some days we didn't see anyone else on the beach for hours at a time), this is the spot for you! We just got back a couple of weeks ago, and my wife and I are counting the days until we can head back to Ray and Vivienne's again.
