Beautiful view of the ocean from the deck. First,you are greeted by the owners, they are wonderful, informative, and very helpful. The rental is clean, sharp looking, convenient, great amenities, and felt very comfortable there. We would recommend Maui by the Sea to anyone.

“Mooie complete cottage met prachtig uitzicht! Beautiful cottage with stunning view!”
Reviewed 24 November 2017 for a stay in November 2017

It’s a beautiful cottage near the lovely village Paia. Everything you need is there and it’s a great place to come back after all the adventures you can explore on Maui!
Craig and Valerie, the owners are very kind and are willing to tell you all about the things you can do. The place in the garden where you can sit and view the beautiful ocean is great!
We had a great time!!

“Just Awesome”
Reviewed 12 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Stayed a week in the cottage- which is just as pictured. Clean, simple, comfortable, with everything we needed.
Our hosts, Valerie and Craig were just above and beyond gracious, kind, helpful and generous.
Location was perfect to explore the entire island, which we did. And a perfect place to come back to and relax. Lanai was excellent, loved having coffee there each start of the day. The fruit trees were amazing- papaya and oranges and bananas for smoothies- all right there! Out front by the water was a picnic table and teo recliner chairs to enjoy watching the turtles nibbling on the seaweed.
I was slightly concerned about the proximity to the road noise, but never found it to be an issue, and I am a light sleeper. We used the AC only one night, then realized the ceiling fans were sufficient as it cooled nicely with all the cross ventilation.
Parking was below, covered, which was a bonus. Beach gear available for use.
We really didn't want to leave.

I really can't stress enough how welcome and comfortable Valerie and Craig made us feel and how helpful they were with advice!

“Fantastic ... Would Do it Again in a Hearbeat”
Reviewed 15 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This was our 2nd stay and we stayed 9 nights.

The 1st time we divided our time between here and another location and were sad when time came to leave.

We love Paia and Maui-by-the-Sea. The cottage is hip, beautiful hardwood floors, big veranda over looking fruit trees with views of ocean behind them. In the morning we check out the ocean at the front of the property, then pick oranges and squeeze fresh orange juice and have breakfast on the veranda. Also picked bananas and papayas. Mangos and avocados weren't ripe yet.

Then it's on to a 2 hour walk and swim on Baldwin Beach, which we liked more and more every day. Beautiful and natural with lots to see. Friendly people.

Afternoon site seeing - Road to Hana, upcountry, and road around West Maui past Kapalua, "Over the Top". Boogie-boarded, surfed, watched the tide pools, meandered in Paia.

Lots of good restaurants: Paia Fish Market, Café des Amis, Provisions to Go, Maka by Mana.

Val and Craig are great hosts.

Recommendation: rent a Jeep Wrangler with removal hard top. Well worth the extra $.
