Overview

About the property

3 to 5 Bedrooms, 4 Full Bathrooms, 3 lanais (Sleeps up to 9 comfortably)

Welcome to the newly remodeled Paia Surf House, STPH2012/0001, HI Tax ID# GE/TA-078-205-7472-01, which easily accommodates parties of 5-9 (unused parts of the house can be closed off, saving $$$) – or splurge and make it all just a honeymoon palace for two. When you're at Paia Surf, you can stash the car keys for days on end if you want – and walk everywhere! How cool is that? (Driving is SO overrated.) Shops/restaurants/cafes/galleries and, yes, the beach, are all out the front door, no further than a couple blocks. And Paia is a gem of a coastal village, right beside the mighty blue Pacific's open waters. You’re guaranteed to feel the ocean’s power, one way or another.

Whether you're part of a multi-generational family gathering, or an intimate romantic escapade, this luxury house is all yours while you're there. And the house works great in different ways. Designed to be enjoyed communally, it also has plenty of little hideaway features that allow for privacy; places to get away from it all – the LANAI, for one, and some outdoor/backyard grotto space. Very versatile, with an extreme 'Oh WOW!’ factor the moment you step inside.

Paia Surf has five bedrooms and four full bathrooms - all newly remodeled. Its all double-walled construction, with NEW insulation - windows - doors - stone tile floors - plumbing - electrical. The theme throughout? Driftwood. Sea glass. Sand. Every room has it's own quiet solar electric AC unit. There are 4 parking stalls on the property. Paia Surf can be rented as a whole, or with portions closed off, making it potentially a one-two-three-four- or five-bedroom rental. THE RATE ESTIMATE ON THIS SITE STARTS WITH THE UPPER LEVEL 3 BEDROOMS, 2 BATH. THIS IS A 5 BEDROOM, 4 BATH HOME AND YOU CAN RENT LESS BEDROOMS FOR A SMALLER RATE so please contact the owner about price variation for more bedrooms. Maui County regulation allows two guests per bedroom and only one rental group, on the same rental agreement, staying at the home at any one period of time. With this in mind, parts of Paia Surf can easily be locked off for smaller rental groups, that way guests are not charged for all of the existing bedrooms. For vacation homes in Maui these regulations ensure that guests have the ultimate private experience and Paia Surf really does feel like your home away from home!

The second story has a small ocean view, gourmet kitchen and large lanai complete with comfortable outdoor furnishings. The ground level potentially has 2 bedrooms each with their own full bathroom; one with king bed and a kitchenette (wet bar) and outdoor BBQ with cooking element, the other bedroom has a queen bed, fridge and microwave. The lower bedrooms each have their own private lanais and can either be connected or separated. The house feels light and bright, insulated and quiet, even though it is located in the heart of Paia. The house is just off the road thru town, three houses from the shore. Beach access is around the block and about a five-minute walk. Check in is at 3pm. Check out at 10am. There is a seven-night minimum stay.

Folks who come to Paia love “the coolest little town in Maui” – one of the island's most charming hideaways. Escaping the tourist sprawl of steel and glass rising high, Paia is a nod to the remnants of Hawaii’s past, when it was a sugar cane plantation village. You can almost imagine the company store on Main Street. And what better way to experience its timeless, laid back essence than residing in this charming, almost-at-the-beach/in-the-heart-of-the-village house. You're not just a visitor, you live there, mixing with the locals! Turn one way outside your door, and you're strolling by some of the island's best restaurants, earthy little cafes, places to get a holistic massage or tribal tattoo, or a tasty cocktail while enjoying live music, historical sites, surf shops ... all just a stroll out the door. Turn the other way and it's a short walk to the beach and all its glories of sun/sea/sand. Never been to Shangri La? Hey - you live in Paia - and that’s even better.

As a local family and business owners on this island, we feel privileged and proud to be able to contribute to our community by providing a service that benefits our town and the visitors who make long journeys from distant lands to experience the island of Maui. The north shore is the heart and soul of Maui. In Paia, you will be part of a community that feels more 'local' than touristy, more homegrown and friendly than fussy - quite different from the south, and west, shores, jammed with high rise mega-resorts from one end to the other.

Experience the essence of old and new Maui at The Paia Surf. Come visit our home. We've lived here - and loved it - a long time.

Aloha and All The BEST,

Annie, Chris, Dylan and Evan McNeil

We believe that sharing our dreams is a wonderful gesture. Welcome and enjoy our home while you enjoy this beautiful island. With Much Aloha, The McNeil Family

Annie McNeil purchased this house in 1997

Why Annie McNeil chose East Maui

The location is the best. You're in the little Paia town, but scarcely more than a stone's toss away from the water. And if you want upcountry adventure, the road leads up the side of the volcano, or take the road to Hana for the ultimate day trip exploration.

What makes this house unique

What is unique about the Paia Surf is that it is located in the town, stones throw away from the beach, great dining, shops, grocery and entertainment. IF you reserve Paia Surf your group is always the only group in the house. That makes it like your home away from home. Reservations can be made for 3,4 or 5 bedrooms with the other sections of the house locked off and not charged to the guest. Because the house is newly remodeled it has AC in every room and insulated walls making it a quiet place even though it's in the heart of a busy town. This home is especially unique because it is the perfect place to have a quality family get together for young and old alike. The young have Paia town entertainment a few steps away! No more stranded teens, always in a bad mood, when their outlet is just outside the door.

Great family spot -- excellent location

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 year-old son and I went to Maui for 10 days to spend our anniversary -- and were joined part of the trip by a couple of friends. We initially booked the upper 3 bedrooms (there are an additional 2 separate bedrooms on the lower floor), but after the 3 of us spent the night, it became clear we'd need more space for the additional couple.

The upper part of the house would be perfect for a family with a couple of kids (2-4), or extra family members who are really close.

The house is in Paia -- an excellent location. The little town is about 10 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes from Haiku (where some of the biking tours down the volcano start -- and I totally recommend), and about 45 minutes from Lahaina.

We arrived and the place was equipped with most of the things we needed: A high chair and a booster seat, a stroller, a potty, a pack 'n play (which was too small for our 2 year-old, but would be great for a younger child) and loads of beach toys. For the rest of us: Beach towels, every essential kitchen gadget and some amazing fruits and snacks.

The place was really clean and nicely decorated. The outdoor patio was fantastic.The A/C units worked really well. The outdoor showers and foot baths were really convenient.

The house is literally in the heart of Paia -- right behind a gift shop and gas station near Hana Highway and Baldwin Ave. -- which made it a little loud some evenings. But more often than not, we were happy to be in the middle of everything and have Paia Fish Market and Ono Gelato literally a minute walk away. Manna grocery store was about a 4 minute walk and had everything we needed.

Annie and Chris were exceedingly helpful. They responded to every email quickly and helpfully (Our son got sick our first day and they recommended a doctor on the island). Their recommendations on the island were great.

My only suggestion would be to have a mid-trip cleaning option.

I would absolutely recommend Paia Surf!

Book your vacation by their availability...

  • 5 of 5

You couldn't ask for more... This place has the perfect combination of location, comfort, convenience and style. Our family of 4 felt at home the minute we arrived. We spent as much time on the lanai as we did inside... and the inside is amazing. The private yard and outdoor showers we're perfect after the beach. Pa'ia is a great town and super convenient to the airport, south shore, upcountry and on the way to Hana with restaurants, shops and the beach just minutes away walking. After living on Maui for years, I was very critical about where we stayed and this property exceeded our expectations.

100% recreation and absolutely lovely

  • 5 of 5

We had a chilly, relaxing, wonderful and unforgettable stay in Paia Surf. We enjoyed every second. The house is perfect for everything: beach just a few walks away, restaurants, Kite and Surf spot, ...

The house by itself offers everything you need and has a lovely facility so that you feel comfortable at every time. Annie and Chris: thank you so much for everything

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Both the house and the location were outstanding. There were absolutely no negatives associated with the stay. The shortcut to the beach was very useful, and watching the turtles come in at night was a great experience.

Eating on the balcony with a view of the ocean also was a great experience. We really enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful Gem in the Heart of Downtown Paia

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a nicer place or more accommodating hosts. Owners Annie and Chris have done an amazing job with Paia Surf. There were eight family members: three couples and two kids under age 4, staying in Maui for 8 nights. The photos don't do justice to the beauty and convenience of this property. From the front door we were steps from the cute shops, a handy market, and great eateries Paia offers, as well as from Baldwin Beach. The home is modern, very welcoming, with a great room/kitchen and lovely Lanai with a peek-a-boo view of the ocean, for enjoying outdoor meals, or just relaxing. There is a master bedroom, two more bedrooms and a guest bath upstairs; two en suite bedrooms, one with a kitchenette, downstairs. The two downstairs are very private and quiet, and accessed from outside. There is a small patio and garden downstairs with a gas BBQ and two outdoor showers-a favorite for our our group after the beach. We were provided a pack n play, booster seat, high chair, stroller, and even sand toys for the kids! Beach towels, beach chairs and an umbrella were also provided upon request. We ate in most of the week and found the kitchen to be easy to use and well stocked. So glad we found this place, and grateful for our hosts, who checked in by text to make sure we were well taken care of. We are thinking about making this trip an annual one. If we do, the first thing we'll do is book this beautiful home again. The experience surpassed our expectations. Thanks, Annie and Chris!

Paia surf is the best on Maui

  • 5 of 5

Inviting and well equipped for our 2 week stay- we swam in Paia Bay every day, snorkeled in the Reserve, surfed for 2 days at mile marker 12 with Maui Surf Girls- highly recommend, hiked to twin Falls, jumped off the cliff into the waterfall, cycled with Maui cyclery for 4-5 days in the hills above Haiku, visited Upcountry for a Hawaiian massage, ran at he base of Halehakala, etc. Ate some excellent seafood at the fish market and Mama's!

Chris and Annie are superstar hosts and we enjoyed their wonderful home!! We will definitely be back!

Paia is a local, 'small town' kind of place, friendly to visitors from far away places. The vibe is laid back in the most island sense of the word. Local aloha and small town, rather than gaudy, upscale or resorty. Whether your thing is seal watching at the beach, experiencing the hippie back-to-nature lifestyle, surfing the Five-O break, or prowling around the streets meandering among the tantalizing restaurants, shops and galleries, Paia always pleases. And the constant tradewinds makes this north shore location slightly cooler than the more touristy west and south sides. It is in the heart of Maui's wild coast. A short stroll gets you to the beach. From there you can walk for miles! Do not be offended if a local asks if you are a 'haole'. It's not a derogatory term. It simply means foreigner. Nearby are beautiful beaches and legendary water sports natural arenas ... like Jaws, where giant waves sometimes come rolling in ... and Hookipa, where pro surfers, windsurfers and kiteboarders perform miraculous feats. Both spots are great for spectators.

Activities? Pretty much anything you can think of. How about for starters ... surfing, windsurfing, kiteboarding, golf, tennis, stand up paddling, canoe paddling, beachcombing, swimming, bodyboarding, road biking, mountain biking, rock jumping, hiking, shopping, live music, gallery browsing, and historical churches.
