"My Stay at Nalu Kai Lodge was brilliant. I arrived from my stay near Lahiana and I was needing a rest and a non-tourist experience. I almost cried when I saw my cute room which was clean and had a up-to-date retro feel to it. Maria and her staff were helpful and I found the Lodge to be sweet and quiet and gave me a sense about what real Hawaii is like. The tropical courtyard inspired me to paint and the deck inspired me to bathe in the sun. The Village is right there but the Lodge is quiet and comfortable. Of course the beaches,food and people are all special. I love it and am going back!"Guest: Em Date of Stay: July 2011 Review Submitted: September 15, 2011View listing
"We had a great time here. Loved the location, and the house is such a charming place. We loved watching the turtles in the water, and even spotted a few whales off in the distance. And the views from the upstairs bedrooms can't be beat. Highly recommend for anyone looking to stay in Paia."Guest: Amanda S. Date of Stay: February 2014 Review Submitted: July 3, 2014View listing
"My husband, our 2 kids (6yr old & 5mo baby) and I stayed here for 2 weeks. This is a wonderful place to stay, I would definitely stay here again the next time we are on Maui. The place was very clean and attractive looking. It was a wonderful big yard, great for the kids and for the parents to hang out and relax in. A 5 min walk from the beach, it really saved a lot of driving time & gas $. The owner was very nice, helpful and great with kids! We were able to check in early and check out late for no additional charges. I lived on Maui for 15 years, and I can say without a doubt that this is one of the least expensive, clean and convenient places to stay on the island! Thank you so much for making our family vacation such a relaxing and enjoyable one! Aloha"Guest: happy traveler Date of Stay: April 2012 Review Submitted: April 28, 2012View listing
"As I write this, I am still here in Nessie's Place, but I just have to review about what a great stay it's been. Loch, the owner is a fantastic soul with a knack for making you feel really at home, and setting up Nessie's place to feel like your home on Maui. The beds are comfy, the crosswinds through the big spacious windows is cool and tranquil, and everyone has plenty of space to hang out or to rest a part from all the fun things to do in Maui. The kitchen is well stocked with anything you could need to prepare a luscious Hawaiian dinner and Mana Foods, the world's best natural food market is just down the street for all your grocery shopping pleasures! The showers work great, washer and dryer on site, free fast Wi-Fi (although you will only need it to upload all your pics from your amazing day on the beach), and located conveniently to EVERYTHING. Loch lives on sight and is easy to get a hold of if you need anything, and since he is a local, he knows all the answers to any of your questions while you vacation. My girlfriends and I highly want to recommend this special space to you, as you will not be dissapointed, but will want to come back to Nessie's again and again! Some other tips for your trip: Shop at Mana and get stuff for breakfast, and save money eating out at lunch and dinner. Be sure to go to Cafe De Amis for crepes and Tahitian Poisson Cru. Be sure to go to Flatbread for Gluten-free pizza with local ingredients. Visit Haiku just up the road for some Maui Kombucha and Hawaiian Toast...don't ask, just get it and you will adore it. Take a day and spend it at Makena beach but watch for "the vortex". You'll know what I mean when you have no trouble getting into the ocean, but watch your friends laugh at you as you try to get out. Contact Miranda of Maui Mana Adventures for the SUP adventure of a lifetime. I paddled with whales, you could too! Best money you will ever spend. Period. After you visit Makena, eat at Pita Paradise in Wailea. They bring fresh Big Eye Ahi Tuna in that day and slice it up. I've never had fish so fresh! That's it! You will love Nessie's Place, and you will love Maui. Tell Loch "the mermaid" sent you!;)"Guest: The Mermaid Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: May 6, 2014View listing
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.
