The North Shore is a wonderful and special place to spend a vacation in Maui. Kuau Inn is where you can genuinely feel like a local and meet other friendly travelers. The classic plantation-style house, in the North Shore beach neighborhood of Kuau, is conveniently located one mile from Maui’s historic plantation town of Pa’ia.

Pa’ia Town, is bustling with a diversity of restaurants, unique boutiques, local art galleries and casual night life.

Maui’s North Shore area has many beautiful beaches, and Ho’okipa world-renowned for surfing, windsurfing, and kite boarding, is a short walk from the Kuau Inn. Kuau is a friendly beach neighborhood. Mama’s Fish House, Maui’s most outstanding contemporary Polynesian cuisine restaurant, is a stroll away. It is located in a beautiful white sand cove perfect for children to swim and snorkel.

Kuau Inn is at the foot of Haleakala Crater and at the start of the journey to Hana. Both of these exquisite drives with breathtaking sights are completely unique to Maui.

We hope our guests will relax and enjoy the island lifestyle the way we do. Kuau Inn has an informal and pleasantly social atmosphere. We would love to meet and host you Maui style.

Homie spot minutes from beach

  • 5 of 5

Would 100% recommend staying at Kuau Inn! Lindsay the host is super friendly, place is kept very clean, and location is fantastic - just minutes from a handful of beaches and a short drive into the town of Paia. Windows everywhere to let the island breeze through the house and an outdoor shower to wash off after the beach. Most rooms have shared bathrooms. Kitchen is stocked with food and cooking supplies for breakfast. Looking for an affordable place to stay on Maui? This may be your place!

Warning: Beware of Shared Bathrooms at Kuau Inn

  • 1 of 5

We were very disappointed upon arrival at Kuau Inn to learn that the bedroom assigned to us (#5) did not have a private bathroom. Evidently, only one or two bedrooms do...we would not have booked a stay here if this had been made clear in the VRBO description. We considered this rather deceptive and left immediately for another hastily-arranged rental though a local agent. Our appeal to the owner for a refund of our prepaid fee was not successful.

Owner's Response: The description of our home on the VRBO site is: House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8-10) We have 4 rooms with shared bathrooms and 1 room with an ensuite for $20 more per night. This guest did not request a private bathroom, so they were assigned a room with a shared bathroom. Our Cancellation Policy is: 100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. We offered to refund any dates that were rebooked. Unfortunately we were unable to rebook any of their dates.

Paia Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about Kuau Inn....the location, the iconic house, the yard, the ameneties, the guests and the hostess. The location provided an ideal launching point from which to explore upcountry, north and east Maui. The beach is only a 10 minute walk through a residential neighborhood, The yard and its lawn chairs and outdoor shower provided an end of the day rest spot. The bedrooms were private but the shared kitchen and living rom provided guests the opportunity to discuss adventures if they wanted. The hostess was available with assistance, kept an immaculate house AND provided guests with the best local fruit for breakfast. We will return, for sure.
