Welcome to the North Shore of Maui, Hawaii! Maui North Shore ocean-view
Maui by the Sea is a beautiful vacation rental - an ideal ocean-view cottage located on an oceanfront property between Paia and Ho’okipa, on Maui's scenic and exciting North Shore. Our two-story plantation-style cottage has gorgeous views of a sapphire ocean with dancing waves. Simply sit back and relax on the private covered lanai and enjoy the view!
Tropical ambiance with all the comforts of home:
The 500 sq.feet air-conditioned apartment is upstairs (downstairs is the open garage), surrounded by a lovely Hawaiian tropical garden with bamboos, palm trees, gingers, heliconias and fruit trees. The inside is cozy and elegant. A separate bedroom with a queen-sized bed, full bath, and full kitchen complement the layout.
The ocean is your front yard.
Walk out into the front yard, and watch surfers enjoying the beautiful blue waves! Maui by the Sea's property is located right on the ocean, fronting a popular local surf break. The entertainment never stops!
Your cottage is 150 feet from the ocean. (Access to the water is possible but there is no beach in front of the property; it is a rocky shoreline). A sandy beach is 200 yards from the cottage with access for windsurfing, surfing and snorkeling; or if you wish, just sunbathing on the golden sand.
A short drive down the coast takes you to Baldwin Beach, the nicest beach on Maui's North Shore with long long stretches of white sand, crystal clear water, lifeguards, pavilions, and showers. TO SEE MORE INFORMATION AND PHOTOS CLICK THE LINK BELOW THE CALENDAR LINK ON THIS PAGE.
RENT WITH CONFIDENCE
With 12 years of experience, Maui By The Sea has always operated under a legal County of Maui permit and our current permit is valid through 2021.
BE CAUTIOUS WHEN YOU CHOOSE A COTTAGE
The County of Maui requires that Vacation rentals and B&B's obtain a permit for legal operation. Illegal operators are currently being contacted and serious enforcement and closure of non-permitted cottages will begin January 1, 2013. Then recovery of advanced payments will potentially be difficult for the renter. Legal operations will have their permit number on the first page of their website. Keywords: Cottage

About the owner: Your hosts at the Maui by the Sea cottage: Craig and Valerie Richter
Hi, I am Craig: I was born in Seattle and grew up in Spokane, Washington. I loved sports growing-up, especially tennis. I participated in lots of competitions and later became a tennis coach. As a child my parents brought us to Maui several times and eventually I became a Tennis Coach both on Maui and Kauai prior to moving to Hong Kong for 12 years, after which I returned to Maui, met Valerie and have never left. I have been a dedicated tennis coach here on Maui for over 15 years.
Bonjour, I am Valerie: I was born and grew up in Paris, France and became a sports photographer, working for a Windsurfing Magazine, Planche Mag, in the 80's. As a Windsurfing Photographer I traveled around the world following the Windsurfing World Cup, but of all the places my work took me, I loved Maui the best and on Maui I finally settled in 1989.
We are active in our church and in studying the Scripture. When we aren't looking after our guests, we love to play tennis, hike, ski and travel (though not very often since we have a hard time leaving Maui), and Valerie loves Watercolor and Pastel painting and still takes lots of photographs.
We hope you will come and join us in our little paradise,
Craig and Valerie
Why the Owner Chose Paia: This is a unique spot, ocean front, close to Paia and very central to lots of activities, protected from the wind. Extraordinary view.
The pictures speak for themselves.
We have been in business since 2000.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The property is very private with its own ocean view. There is a surf spot right in front and close to shore and it is a wild show to watch and hear the surfer catching waves (winter only). Access to a cute little beach is a one minute walk. Perfect for a morning or evening dip.
Once you are done touring or shopping, it is the best to just come home and still have a wonderful and incredible view. This is a very special little nest for honeymooners but also windsurfers and kite boarders.
