  • A truly unique location on Maui

    "A bit on the reviewer(s): Family of 5 (kids 8,6,3). Family loves the beach. All very active in swimming and all things ocean. Parents are well traveled, frequent visitors to Maui, and consider a "tourist vacation" of hotels and pampering, out of the question. #1 - Ray Masters is THE MAN! What a wonderful host. Easy going, very helpful, there if you need him, and silent if you don't. Maui has a "Renaissance" man. His name is Ray Masters. #2 - If you like a perfect, private beach, from which you can swim, snorkel, SUP, windsurf, and pretend your a cast-away, you're going to love Friendly Beach. Our experience was that we would schedule hikes and other types of excursions for the kids during the day, and after completing the event always say, "Why did we leave our house?! Its much better just hanging at Ray's!" #3 Expectations matching. We're a family of 5. Ray's Suite is just that, a Suite. We happen to be a family that enjoys being around each other. (Mom and dad in bedroom, with 4 yr old on bedroom floor, or in bed with us. 8 and 6 yr old on futon in main room.) If you're like us and prioritize location, the ocean, and serenity over, bumping into tourists and hotel living, easy decision. For a couple, or for a family of 3, easy decision. For water sport enthusiasts, easy decision. Mahalo Nui Loa, Ray!"

  • Super

    "The location is just super, very close to Paia, to Hookipa and to Mama’s fish house… The apartment has everything you need, with a private outdoor space where you can have fantastic breakfast and barbecue. The apartment is located in a very private area where the access is guaranteed only through a code access and the car can be parked just right next the apartment. For surfers this is really the perfect location.. We were not able to meet Michael but the check-in was so easy and everything was so perfect at our arrival. Michael was always available on the phone. Grazie Michel.. if we will come back in Maui… for sure we will love to stay at your place again"

  • 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.
