Paia, Maui, Hawaii
Maui by the Sea is a beautiful vacation rental - an ideal ocean-view cottage located between Paia and Hookipa, on Maui's scenic and exciting North Shore. Our two-story plantation-style cottage has gorgeous views of a sapphire ocean with dancing waves. Simply sit back and relax on the private covered lanai and enjoy the view!
The 500 sq.feet central air-conditioned apartment is upstairs (downstairs is the open garage), surrounded by a lovely Hawaiian tropical garden with bamboos, palm trees, gingers, heliconias and fruit trees. The inside is cozy and elegant. A separate bedroom with a queen-sized bed, full bath, and full kitchen complement the layout.

Interaction with guests
My husband Craig and I live on the property. We are usually present at time of arrival to meet you and introduce ourselves. Show you around the property, explain gate and remote. Afterwards we are always available if you have any questions or we can be invisible and give you the space you want while staying in the cottage. The cottage and house are far enough and separated by fruit trees and palm trees so that you have real privacy.

This location is fantastic! The cottage is charming and has EVERYTHING you would ever need. It is clean, comfortable, and charming. The views of the sunset from the cottage deck and from the lawn down by the ocean are incredible. We loved being so close...More

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is located 0.7 miles from Paia. Paia is the cutest little town with about 12 restaurants. There is also a beach at walking distance.

Maui by the Sea Cottage sits off of Hana Highway (it is not a 'highway' as mainlanders understand it, it is a 2 lane road). There can at times be excessive road noise. However, we have good insulation and have added air conditioning to minimize the problem. There will be no refund given due to this situation.
Getting around
We recommend a car because there are so many things to visit on Maui (crater, Hana, beaches....).
Paia is walking distance but only half of the road has a sidewalk so we don't recommend walking to Paia. But the cutest little beach is about 2mn from here. You will meet the turtles napping on the sand anytime of the day.
Car advised
