Hale Makai (Home towards the Ocean) Steps to Kuau Beach, 3 minutes to Paia Town
Why Property Manager chose Paia
Our Guests Say it Best ! " We've stayed in the 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom on two different occasions with our two young children and the houses are perfect for our needs. We love the quiet, friendly neighbourhood with Coco the parrot making evening appearances. The short walk to the beach is perfect - we spent every evening watching our kids playing in the water and exploring the rocks. All the amenities at the cottage make beach living easy and family friendly - from outdoor showers and hoses, to boogie boards and sand toys for kids. We would definitely like to return! "
What makes this House unique
Our Guests Say it Best ! "The 2 bedroom suite at Hale Makai was perfect for our family of 4. We enjoyed smoothies and coffee on the deck every morning. And we loved the great kitchen and bbq for some casual vacation cooking. The beach at Mama’s fish house, right across the street, was an ideal snorkeling spot for our 8 and 10 year old kids. Paia is a hopping town with some great lunch spots. We also managed to fit in some windsurfing at Kanaha Beach Park, literally 10 minutes drive from our Kuau place. " Casual and comfortable! We were sorry to leave and can’t wait to go back!

Eleven of us had a great time!
The property was beautiful and the access to the sheltered beach was welcome. Our 5 and 8 year olds learned how to snorkel among the fish and sea turtles in a very protected environment. Paula, the manager, was very helpful and we loved the set up for a large family group. We cooked at home most of the time, but the restaurants we visited were fun and the food was wonderful: The Millhouse, Flatbread, Mama's Fish House, Charlie's, Fleetwoods upper bar at sunset. Driving to Haleakala at sunset was beautiful. Bike riding was available in town and several in our group enjoyed that. It was a little windy several days, but the temperature of the water was perfect. A fun little town was Wailuku. Whale watching, fishing, and snorkeling were all available at Boss Frogs in a town nearby. We had a very memorable time.
Aloha Cathie, It was wonderful to have all your family at our home, just next door to a beach that is only a few steps away. With the large kitchen yes so fun to cook and BBQ while also being so close to pop into Paia town for a lunch or shopping. Our location also provides a perfect place to go just about anywhere on the island, yet come back to your private home where you feel so comfortable. We look forward to having you back . Aloha Paula and Cliff
Home improvement needed
We love Maui. The house has great potential . It’s size was great for our large group. It was not cleaned well for our visit. The floors not mopped in a long time . The dishwasher was broken and old we had to pick up the bottom tray and place it as it could not slide in. A few more bath towels would have helped . As expensive as this house was to rent it is not too much to expect these simple things . Next visit I will look elsewhere to rent.
Aloha and Thank you for expressing your concerns with our Home. Upon arrival of your group of 12 we had some minor issues that you noticed and we addressed them quickly. The floors are concrete and we always mop between parties, however they are a porous material. Had you mentioned anything about them we would of had our cleaner come in and remop the home. On the dishwasher, it is functioning properly and we were never told that the rack was off track . That would of been fixed. On the towels we do leave enough out for everyone and with the washer/dryer on property most guests just wash them as needed. We also provide beach towels so you do not use the house towels. We were really surprised you were not happy as when we met you nothing was discussed or we would of made sure your vacation was fine. We do welcome your group back and hope that any future guests would always tell us if they have any issues as we would always correct them.

Perfect family home
Beautiful home and yard very close to beach - 1 minute walk. Home was very nice for our stay with extended family as there are plenty of opportunities to be together or have privacy. Stairs can be tricky with a young child.
We loved the beach by mama's (right outside the home), very sheltered for young children, plenty of sea turtles and fish. Would recommend bringing a snorkel.
We loved our stay and would highly recommend. Both Cliff and Paula were kind and easy to work with.
Aloha Sara and Family, It was a pleasure having you and your extended family. The beach just steps away and the outdoor shower are loved by the little ones. We did notice you were a bit challenged with the stairs , as you had a baby ( older kids are fine) you would always need to pay attention or in the future let us know and we can rent a baby gate for you. We do look forward to your return.
Aloha, Paula and Cliff
Location is Awesome!
Rented the house for a Family Vacation of 7 Adults and 2 Children. Paula and house exceeded our expectations. The House is right next to Mama's Fish House and about 10 mins from Paia. The house is perfect for a small group or a large group, location is perfect if your going to Lahaina or going to Hana! Will be Back!
Aloha Ivan, Yes this is a great Family Beach house and we know your kids love walking to the beach just steps away and the outdoor shower is pretty awesome. We look forward to your return !
Quite Hide Away in Paia
This was my forth trip to Maui, with the first three being in Kihei. Nice change, nice quite street with property on dead end of street at the end of the street. Small beach just steps away were we saw green sea turtles, natural break, keeps waves calm and great for young kids. Great little deli / store within a 5 min walk which has great coffee, sandwiches, beer, wine and more. We walked to Paia and local beaches and Mamas Fish House which was also nice.
Paula and Cliff took good care of us.
Aloha and Thank you for staying with us over the Christmas Holiday ! We noted you did like the fact the little store Kuau Market was very nice to have within walking distance just to pick up a few things. The beach also is close by only a few steps away . Our location is ideal and being at the end of a street off the main Hana Hwy we never have traffic noise , you actually listen to the birds and when the surf gets big you can here the waves. We look forward to your return back to Maui and at our Beach Home. Aloha Paula (Maui Tropical Vacations)
