  • Excellent Stay

    "We had an amazing time at the property. It was exactly as described. The property was light and airy, with plenty of space for our family of five. It was surprisingly cool for mid August, catching some shade and breeze. We particularly enjoyed the outside shower, security gate, parking, large outdoor space and BBQ area. It was quiet, despite being close to the main road. There was a amazing little deli/coffee store two minutes walk away, which we'd highly recommend - great for foodies. The property was clean and tidy. We had little contact with the owner/manager Michael, which was no problem, as we got in easily and got on with our stay in privacy. The property is in a great location for the North Shore activities, extremely close to Hookipa and a short drive from Paia. Great storage space for all your kit. It's possible to walk to a small beach from the property, but you would need to be a bit careful with the busy main Hana hwy with very young children. Mama's Fish house (pricey) is next door. We would definitely recommend it to our friends, which we will do."

  • Excellent Cottage

    "We spent nine nights at this wonderful cottage. Every day we went exploring a different part of the island, thanks to the central location. The cottage with its private yard, is well kept and very pleasant. The cottage is small, clean, and well equipped. The beds and linens were wonderful. The yard has a BBQ and table with chairs that we used most evenings to have dinner and relax as the sun set. There were a few beach chairs and boogie boards for use, but we had already purchased some before we got there, so we left two nice boogie boards for future guests. Having beach towels available would have been great though. We enjoyed everything about this place. Michael was very pleasant to deal with. We would love to stay there again."

  • Paia get-away

    "We had a great stay!! The room is just as described and worked well for 2 people. We love the restaurants in Paia and enjoyed both Baldwin beach and Hookipa nearby."

  • Close walk to town!

    "Staying at the Hale Nihi was a good experience. It is a short walk right into Paia Town and close to the road to Hana. They were very accommodating to our late arrival. There was a nice basket full of breakfast goodies on the table for the morning. I would say the only drawback of this place is that it is a little noisy but that's to be expected when you are staying so close to town."

Paia Travel Tips

Experience Small Town Hawaii with Paia Vacation Rentals

Paia is a tiny town of about 3,000 residents on the north side of the island of Maui, in the Hawaiian Islands. The fact that Paia is so quiet and tiny is what makes this small town a fabulous travel destination for vacationers who truly want the rest and quiet that can only be found in a tropical paradise. Paia was once a cane plantation, but now it's just a few streets of tourist shops nested among villas, all next to a beautiful white sandy beach. If you're looking to stay there, upcountry Maui cottages and plantation-style Paia villas are available through Vacation Rentals by Owner.

Lodging in the Windsurfing Capital of the World

Paia is known as the windsurfing capital of the world. The shores of northern Maui provide plenty of wind power for windsurfers, and annual competitions are held there. For a tiny town, it's even pulled in some big names. United States Senator John Kerry likes to vacation there and practice his windsurfing hobby. And singer Willy Nelson likes to eat at the local restaurant, 'The Fish Market,' when he's on the island. Paia is only about 20 miles northest of Kahului Airport, which connects to Oahu.

Staying Upcountry Maui with Vacation Rentals by Owner

A vacation rental is an arrangement in which an owner of a private property rents her property to a vacationer. For example, a vacationer in Maui could get to stay in an upcountry Maui villa, and cut costs by having extra members of their party, and cooking meals in the villa's full kitchen, instead of eating takeout. The small, cozy villas of Paia also give visitors to the town an intimate experience; you can stay in someone's home, like a local, instead of in a large hotel. Some upcountry Maui cottages are even right on the beach.
