More details:

Paia Bay Suites is a new vacation rental offering in one of Paia’s most desirable locations. It sits on Loio Place, a side street which is oceanside of the highway yet is just a short stroll from the heart of Paia Town. It’s a great location for guests wanting to be close to Paia Town and the ocean.

Paia Town is an eclectic town with a mix of locals, surfers, New Agers, evangelical Christians, hippies, monied people, working folks, artists, snowbirds, Buddhists, and more. It was a rough plantation town that is now transitioning into Maui’s hippest beach town destination.

The property consists of a two-story cottage on a large fenced lot close to the ocean of Paia Bay (it is not oceanfront).

(Beware of unlicensed vacation rentals. Maui County is preparing enforcement operations against unlicensed operators which may include closures with limited warning to travelers. Paia Bay Suites is fully licensed and your booking with us is secure.)

About Alyson Hodges

The property is owned by brother and sister Jake and Ilana Waxman. Jake and Ilana were both born and raised here on Maui and grew up on Maui's North Shore.

Alyson Hodges purchased this apartment in 1977

Why Alyson Hodges chose Paia

The property was purchased as vacant land in 1977 by Jake and Ilana's late father, Maui surfer and attorney Jonathan Waxman. Jonathan bought the lot because of its great location being so close to the shore yet an easy stroll to Paia Town. He built the house in 1987.

What makes this apartment unique

Paia Bay Suites is situated on Loio Place, one of the very few roads in Paia Town that are ocean side of the main road (Hana Hwy). The Paia Bay Suites are on an 8,000 square foot fenced lot which provides plenty of off street fenced parking and a very large yard.

The Paia Bay Suites are in a great location that is easy walking distance to the beaches of Paia and just a short stroll from Paia Town's shopping and dining.

Yet the property is tucked away from the bustle of Paia Town and has a large, green yard sheltered by shade and shower trees. It's a great place to come back to after a day of being in the ocean or exploring Maui. You can take a shower to wash off the salt and then walk to Paia Town for dinner and stroll home to watch the stars and the ocean from the deck.

Please note that Paia Bay Suites is NOT oceanfront. It is separated from the Paia Bay shoreline by a 6' wall. This is a benefit that is obvious to locals and becomes more apparent the more time one spends in Paia as it keeps the property secluded from the busy Paia Bay beach scene. Our guests do what almost all the Paia locals do anyway: stroll over to the beach.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A gem of a place, truly enjoyed our stay. Kitchen was put to good use, well appointed, tank you (real sugar preferred). Bathroom is a class act, great toiletries for use (we forgot some). We found the location very convenient as we walked everywhere. We'll look forward to another visit.

Location was excellent. Quiet, down a small street from downtown, very very close to everything! Could not ask for anything better. We definitely want o come back to Paia and stay in the exact same place. We only wish we would have booked more time there!

Great apartment with a view of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved this apartment in Paia. It had everything we needed during our stay with an amazing view of the water from the living room. The property was only a few minutes walk to the heart of Paia and 10 to 20 minutes to two great beaches. We would highly recommend staying here to any couples!

Paia Bay
Car: recommended

Paia Bay Suites is located a few minutes' stroll from the heart of Paia Town yet is tucked away on Loio Place, a side street 50 feet from the ocean of Paia Bay**.

Paia Town is Maui's North Shore beach, surf and boutique shopping town. There are unique shops, a variety of great dining, Maui's best (and cheapest) health food store, and surf stores.

Paia is inhabited by an eclectic mix of local families descended from the plantation days, hippies from the 1970s, working people, monied retirees, hardcore big wave surfers, windsurfers, kiteboarders, farmers, New Age adherents and mystics, and evangelical Christians and energetic entrepreneurs.

The North Shore has great surfing, snorkeling, diving and beaches for swimming and walking. In the summertime the waves are small and the water clear. In the winter, massive swells roll across thousands of miles of open Pacific Ocean and make landfall all across the North Shore resulting in worldclass surfing, windsurfing and kiteboarding. Paia is 15 minutes from the renowned Jaws surfbreak where the world's best tow-in surfers compete while helicopters film from above.

** Please note: Loio Place is on a rocky promontory which keeps it secure from ocean waves. All of the vacation rentals on Loio Place use Paia Bay as the nearest beach because the shoreline along Loio Place is rocky. Paia Bay Suites has a fantastic view of Paia Bay and the surfers but is not oceanfront.
