  • Gangbusters! Tropical Hideout/Hangout

    "The Listing description didn't include the aloha spirit that is part of Upcountry Maui. The photos reflecting the rental's appearance are right on!......Including the cat with a Namaste sign in the background. The property is clean and well maintained - gardeners and maintenance folks seemed to be always doing something helpful. There was always someone on hand to answer questions. The fun town of Paia is either 4 minutes down the hill (if you're 13 years old or 15 of you're 65). The grocery store, Mana, local eateries, the shave ice lady's place are all favorites for our family. I'd soooooo recommend this place!"

  • Maui by the Sea - rent an cottage

    "If you want to spend some time in North Shore Maui, I would like to recommend renting a house, apartment or flat. For me personally it is the best way to have a good time in Paia and the neighbourhood. North Shore Maui is very natural and you will find lots of nice beaches there. We found a very nice house in Paia which was five minutes away from the beach. The house, owned by Valerie and Craig, was absolutely nice. It was armed with a full equipped kitchen, a comfortable living room, a nice bedroom and a clean bathroom. But the best party of the house was the big terrace with a wonderful sea view. Every morning we woke up, we had a beautiful view on the sun and the sea. For me it was a perfect place to stay in Paia."

  • Wedding House

    "My husband and I rented this house with our entire bridal party for our wedding in January. The home is beyond beautiful and was such a wonderful vacation spot!! It's so close to Paia and the beach, but we hardly ever wanted to leave the house! It was so well kept and well stocked we were able to have fun BBQ's. Highly recommend to anyone!"

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.
