Property description

Welcome to the newly remodeled Paia Surf House, STPH2012/0001, Tax ID W04030496-01, which easily accommodates parties of 5-9 (unused parts of the house can be closed off, saving $$$) – or splurge and make it all just a honeymoon palace for two. When you're at Paia Surf, you can stash the car keys for days on end if you want – and walk everywhere! How cool is that? (Driving is SO overrated.) Shops/restaurants/cafes/galleries and, yes, the beach, are all out the front door, no further than a couple blocks. And Paia is a gem of a coastal village, right beside the mighty blue Pacific's open waters. You’re guaranteed to feel the ocean’s power, one way or another.

Whether you're part of a multi-generational family gathering, or an intimate romantic escapade, this luxury house is all yours while you're there. And the house works great in different ways. Designed to be enjoyed communally, it also has plenty of little hideaway features that allow for privacy; places to get away from it all – the LANAI, for one, and some outdoor/backyard grotto space. Very versatile, with an extreme 'Oh WOW!’ factor the moment you step inside.

Paia Surf has five bedrooms and four full bathrooms - all newly remodeled. Its all double-walled construction, with NEW insulation - windows - doors - stone tile floors - plumbing - electrical. The theme throughout? Driftwood. Sea glass. Sand. Every room has it's own quiet solar electric AC unit. There are 4 parking stalls on the property. Paia Surf can be rented as a whole, or with portions closed off, making it potentially a one-two-three-four- or five-bedroom rental. THE RATE ESTIMATE ON THIS SITE STARTS WITH THE UPPER LEVEL 3 BEDROOMS, 2 BATH. THIS IS A 5 BEDROOM, 4 BATH HOME AND YOU CAN RENT LESS BEDROOMS FOR A SMALLER RATE so please contact the owner about price variation for more bedrooms. Maui County regulation allows two guests per bedroom and only one rental group, on the same rental agreement, staying at the home at any one period of time. With this in mind, parts of Paia Surf can easily be locked off for smaller rental groups, that way guests are not charged for all of the existing bedrooms. For vacation homes in Maui these regulations ensure that guests have the ultimate private experience and Paia Surf really does feel like your home away from home!

The second story has a small ocean view, gourmet kitchen and large lanai complete with comfortable outdoor furnishings. The ground level potentially has 2 bedrooms each with their own full bathroom; one with king bed and a kitchenette (wet bar) and outdoor BBQ with cooking element, the other bedroom has a queen bed, fridge and microwave. The lower bedrooms each have their own private lanais and can either be connected or separated. The house feels light and bright, insulated and quiet, even though it is located in the heart of Paia. The house is just off the road thru town, three houses from the shore. Beach access is around the block and about a five-minute walk. Check in is at 3pm. Check out at 10am. There is a seven-night minimum stay.

Folks who come to Paia love “the coolest little town in Maui” – one of the island's most charming hideaways. Escaping the tourist sprawl of steel and glass rising high, Paia is a nod to the remnants of Hawaii’s past, when it was a sugar cane plantation village. You can almost imagine the company store on Main Street. And what better way to experience its timeless, laid back essence than residing in this charming, almost-at-the-beach/in-the-heart-of-the-village house. You're not just a visitor, you live there, mixing with the locals! Turn one way outside your door, and you're strolling by some of the island's best restaurants, earthy little cafes, places to get a holistic massage or tribal tattoo, or a tasty cocktail while enjoying live music, historical sites, surf shops ... all just a stroll out the door. Turn the other way and it's a short walk to the beach and all its glories of sun/sea/sand. Never been to Shangri La? Hey - you live in Paia - and that’s even better.

As a local family and business owners on this island, we feel privileged and proud to be able to contribute to our community by providing a service that benefits our town and the visitors who make long journeys from distant lands to experience the island of Maui. The north shore is the heart and soul of Maui. In Paia, you will be part of a community that feels more 'local' than touristy, more homegrown and friendly than fussy - quite different from the south, and west, shores, jammed with high rise mega-resorts from one end to the other.

Experience the essence of old and new Maui at The Paia Surf. Come visit our home. We've lived here - and loved it - a long time.

Aloha and All The BEST,

Annie, Chris, Dylan and Evan McNeil

Car: Not Necessary

Paia is a local, 'small town' kind of place, friendly to visitors from far away places. The vibe is laid back in the most island sense of the word. Local aloha and small town, rather than gaudy, upscale or resorty. Whether your thing is seal watching at the beach, experiencing the hippie back-to-nature lifestyle, surfing the Five-O break, or prowling around the streets meandering among the tantalizing restaurants, shops and galleries, Paia always pleases. And the constant tradewinds makes this north shore location slightly cooler than the more touristy west and south sides. It is in the heart of Maui's wild coast. A short stroll gets you to the beach. From there you can walk for miles! Do not be offended if a local asks if you are a 'haole'. It's not a derogatory term. It simply means foreigner. Nearby are beautiful beaches and legendary water sports natural arenas ... like Jaws, where giant waves sometimes come rolling in ... and Hookipa, where pro surfers, windsurfers and kiteboarders perform miraculous feats. Both spots are great for spectators.

Activities? Pretty much anything you can think of. How about for starters ... surfing, windsurfing, kiteboarding, golf, tennis, stand up paddling, canoe paddling, beachcombing, swimming, bodyboarding, road biking, mountain biking, rock jumping, hiking, shopping, live music, gallery browsing, and historical churches.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Chris & I are a small mom and pop operation that takes great pride in the service we provide for visitors from around the world, as well as, to our community, by stimulating the economy and providing jobs and promoting local businesses. Our children were raised here and because of the beauty of Maui, have been able to immerse themselves in nature and create the greatest memories together. There is no value that can be placed on the moments spent on this island because quality of life has no price. We go above and beyond ourselves to make sure that a guest's visit is the very best. We believe that sharing our dreams is a wonderful gesture. Welcome and enjoy our home while you enjoy this beautiful island. With Much Aloha, The McNeil Family

Why the Owner Chose Paia:
The location is the best. You're in the little Paia town, but scarcely more than a stone's toss away from the water. And if you want upcountry adventure, the road leads up the side of the volcano, or take the road to Hana for the ultimate day trip exploration.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
What is unique about the Paia Surf is that it is located in the town, stones throw away from the beach, great dining, shops, grocery and entertainment. IF you reserve Paia Surf your group is always the only group in the house. That makes it like your home away from home. Reservations can be made for 1,2,3,4 or 5 bedrooms with the other sections of the house locked off and not charged to the guest. Because the house is newly remodeled it has AC in every room and insulated walls making it a quiet place even though it's in the heart of a busy town. This home is especially unique because it is the perfect place to have a quality family get together for young and old alike. The young have Paia town entertainment a few steps away! No more stranded teens, always in a bad mood, when their outlet is just outside the door.
