Welcome to Paia ... and The Paia Surf STPH2012/0001, Tax ID W04030496-01. When you're at Paia Surf, you'll be uniquely situated. Not only are you in a gem of a coastal village (Paia), right beside the blue Pacific's open waters. You're also situated to enjoy a luxurious coastal home all by yourselves - just a short walk from the water. Whether you're part of a multi-generational family gathering, or an intimate romantic escapade, the house is all yours while you're there. And the house works great in different ways. THE PRICE ESTIMATE STARTS WITH THE UPPER LEVEL 3 BEDROOM, 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. 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). Very versatile, with an extreme 'Oh wow! This place is gorgeous!' factor once you step inside. But what about Paia - the little community you are now part of?
Our Paia Surf house has 5 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms - all newly remodeled. It's all double-walled construction, with NEW insulation - windows - doors - stone tile floors - plumbing - electrical. The theme throughout? Drift wood. Sea glass. Sand. Every room has it's own quiet solar electric AC unit. There are 4 parking stalls on the property. A portion of the house can be reserved or it can be rented out as a whole. Paia Surf is versatile and potentially one, two, three, four or five bedrooms can be rented. Maui County regulation allows 2 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 oceanside of the main highway, three houses from the shore. Beach access is around the block and about a 5 minute walk. Check in is at 3pm. Check out at 10am. There is a five day minimum stay. Shorter stays require an extra charge for cleaning.
Folks who come to Maui love visiting our vibrant little town - one of the island's most beloved, fun, northshore hideaways. And what better way to experience its 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! Turn one way outside your door, and you're strolling by some of the island's best restaurants, earthy little cafes, places to get holistic massage, or a tasty cocktail while enjoying live music, historical sites ... all within a couple blocks. Turn the other way and it's a short walk to the beach and all its glories of sun/sea/sand. Shangri La. Hey - you live in Paia - not a bad way to go!
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 that make the long journey across the ocean to experience Maui island. 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 mega-resorts from one end to the other.
Experience the essence of Maui at The Paia Surf. Come visit our home. We've lived here - and loved it - a long time.

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.

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.
