About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom Condo 150 Yards From Beautiful Secluded Beach

Lovely condo located on Maui's beautiful North Shore. If you are looking for a peaceful vacation away from the crowds and resorts, look no further. This third floor unit has been decorated in a vintage Hawaiian inspired style. It also offers a partial ocean view from the lanai. With plenty of light and windows in the living room, it feels like you're outside among the palm tree tops. The kitchen is fully equipped for you to prepare wonderful meals with fresh local ingredients. Relax and enjoy the warm breezes on the spacious lanai or walk just 150 yards to our secluded beach and take a swim in the natural pool created by the offshore reef. Right next door is famous Ho'okipa beach with world class surfing and windsurfing. Just 1 mile down the road is historic Paia Town, with shops, restaurants, galleries and groceries. For those of you who opt out of renting a car, it's about a 20-25 minute walk. Steps from the condo is the internationally famous restaurant, Mama's fish House. Paia is also centrally located for easy access to the rest of the island. This makes an exceptional value in a wonderful area.

About Nina Cooke

Aloha! I'm so glad you took interest in my home away from home. I really hope you enjoy it as much as I do!



Nina Cooke purchased this condo in 2014

Why Nina Cooke chose East Maui

I fell in love with Maui many years ago when I first visited it with my family when I was very young. Over time I have made many trips to the island and do my best to get off the beaten path in my travels. This caused me to discover the north shore/Paia area, and I found my home. It is an exceptional area for anyone who want to experience the real Maui. I believe that it's Maui's best kept secret. It is so nice and laid back and the people are so warm and friendly. It has everything that I love as an outdoor enthusiast. I love getting up and going down to the beach for a swim or driving a couple of miles down the road for a short hike to the waterfall. Historic Paia town is only a mile away when I want to do some shopping, enjoy the galleries, have lunch or a really good cup of coffee. Paia has it all. Beaches like Ho'okipa for worldclass windsurfing and surfing is right around the corner. And when I'm in the mood to do something touristy, Kihei and Wailea are only 25 minutes away, and Lahaina only about 40. After the crowded beaches and streets, it's so nice to come home to mellow Paia:-)

What makes this condo unique

When I first walked into my home, I instantly fell in love with it. The warm breezes and sound of the palm trees in the wind as I sat on the sofa with the sliding glass door open made me feel instantly relaxed. It was also important to me that it was on the top floor. It is quieter that way, and the view is the best from any other unit that I've seen. I'm a very active person, but this home makes me feel like I don't have to do anything at all.

Paia Paradise

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Paia. What a quaint town with Charley's, the Fish Market and the bakery. Everything in the unit was as described and actually bigger than we expected. The path to the beautiful was like a walk to a private beach. Mama's Beach is white sand with wonderful snorkeling in a very calm area. Perfect for novice snorkelers. What a gem. The kitchen had lots of storage, the bed comfy and everything very clean. Since it is on the third floor with no elevator you may not want to take too much stuff with you. You won't have to cook at all if you check out the Kuav Store, just 800 feet up the road. An easy walk for a tasty and satisfying breakfast or to pick up sandwiches for a picnic. This is the perfect starting place for the drive to Hana. This is definitely a place to stay while in Paia.

Home in Paia

  • 5 of 5

For our first experience in Maui, we thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing and comfortable stay here! The apartment is clean, open, and very comfortable. I was nervous about the sound of traffic from the adjacent highway, but it was really minimal even with the windows open. There was always a fresh breeze blowing through the apartment, and we had everything we needed there, including a four inch cane spider to welcome us on our first morning there. :)

I would highly recommend staying here!!

Good location on Maui

  • 3 of 5

We had an enjoyable two week stay at Kuau Plaza. The property was clean and tastefully decorated. It is an older building and with that comes some problems, but overall it was good. There is road noise to contend with, but we adjusted and loved the location. Walk to beach, Mama's Fish House, and short drive to Pa'ia, Ho'okipa Beach Ha'iku and on the way to Hana Highway.

We really enjoyed the town of Paia and it was helpful that Nina's place was so close. We travelled all over the island of Maui but looked forward to coming back each night. There was a strange smell (it was noticeable but not terrible) so we purchased a cheap scented candle from Wal-mart and kept it lit while we were home.

It was so nice that she had things we could use like a cooler and cold-packs, beach towels, and snorkel gear. There is no A/C but we left the patio door open and the fan on and we were good. You can hear traffic from the road but keeping the bedroom windows closed helps block out a lot.

Overall, we had a great time and I would recommend staying at Nina's.
