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!
TROPICAL AMBIANCE WITH ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME!
The 500 sq.feet 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.
THE OCEAN IS YOUR FRONT YARD.
From the Guest cottage you look over the roof of the Owner’s house to the ocean. Access to the ocean is limited by the Owner’s home. However, an intimate oceanfront sitting area has been arranged for Guests staying at the Maui by the Sea Cottage.
Walk out into the front yard, and watch surfers enjoying the beautiful blue waves! Maui by the Sea's property is located right on the ocean, fronting a popular local surf break. The entertainment never stops!
Your cottage is 150 feet from the ocean. (Access to the water is possible but there is no beach in front of the property; it is a rocky shoreline). A sandy beach is 200 yards from the cottage with access for windsurfing, surfing and snorkeling; or if you wish, just sunbathing on the golden sand.
A short drive down the coast takes you to Baldwin Beach, the nicest beach on Maui's North Shore with long long stretches of white sand, crystal clear water, lifeguards, pavilions, and showers.
You can go on our main website Mauibythesea and see a lot more pictures and info.
The perfect Maui vacation rental for singles or couples
Maui by the Sea is a great vacation rental for beach and water sports lovers, with a great ambiance and location. It is the perfect place for your honeymoon! The ocean is at the door, the beach is a short walk away, and Paia, the coolest little town in Maui is very near. Kahului Airport is only ten miles away from our little heaven, and many of Maui's most popular attractions are within easy reach.
Maui's North Shore - beaches, sun and surf!
Away from the tourist centers of South and West Maui, the North Shore is the place to enjoy the real Maui lifestyle - carefree, sun-filled days, fresh air and clear water, and world class water sports right outside the door - snorkeling, surfing, body boarding, windsurfing, fishing -- you name it!
RENT WITH CONFIDENCE
With 14 years of experience, Maui By The Sea has always operated under a legal County of Maui permit and our current permit is valid through 2021.
BE CAUTIOUS WHEN YOU CHOOSE A COTTAGE
The County of Maui requires that Vacation rentals and B&B;'s obtain a permit for legal operation. Illegal operators are currently being contacted and serious enforcement and closure of non-permitted cottages will begin January 1, 2013. Then recovery of advanced payments will potentially be difficult for the renter. Legal operations will have their permit number on the first page of their website.
DISCLOSURE: 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.
CAUTION! Beware of Fake Emails
We have recently become aware that somebody is sending fake, phishing and spoof emails (from an email address containing the word “thomson.uk” and Flipkey Marketplace) in our Maui by the Sea name and other vacation rentals like ours worldwide, when they have found our Cottage on the Web sites Flipkey and Vrbo. We nor Flipkey and Vrbo have anything to do with such emails.
The emails, among other things, ask for payment by bank wire. First DO NOT SEND THEM ANY MONEY or reply to the email or open a link in the email, if there is one. If you send them money you will show up at our Cottage but will not have a reservation. DO NOT RESPOND TO SUCH EMAIL, BUT DELETE IT FROM YOUR COMPUTER.
If you suspect that you have received a fake email, please let us know and also contact Flipkey and/or Vrbo.TripAdvisor property ID 2377071...Read more

We enjoyed every minute of our stay at the cottage. The cottage is clean and safe. Val and Craig are such wonderful people and provided a wonderful stay for us. We enjoyed them very much. We loved staying in Paia and would gladly come back and rent the cottage.I would rate this rental as a 10 out of 10!

Let me count the ways:
Wonderful hosts: interested, interesting, responsive, welcoming (and respectful of privacy should one want 'space')
The digs: comfy, clean, up to date, every need taken care of, spacious, welcoming,
The spot: beautiful, central, amazing view, fruit trees for the picking, pussycat for the patting
The area: central, great eateries everywhere, fab for getting to every other spot on marvelous Maui
Couldn't ask for anything better.
Thank you Valerie and Craig and of course Pumpkin

My husband and I had a wonderful time at your place. Pumpkin was a delight to have around for company. The place was well equiped, very clean and we felt very at home staying there. We only wished we stayed longer. The view was exceptional and you as owner were very friendly and accomodating. We highly recommend this to our friends and family and hope to come back again some time soon.

My wife and I were looking to relax and enjoy some peaceful time on Maui this was a very good spot. The Cottage was lovely and well equipped including most cooking supplies. There is a nice porch with a view to the Ocean and Valerie was very gracious in offering us to sit and relax in her backyard directly on the Bluff. Good parking and a place for washing up Kite/Surf gear underneath. Almost walking distance to Paia - the only drawback I can think of is that the property is on the main road. It is quiet at night but morning 'rush' hour traffic will be heard if you leave the windows open in back.

We had a wonderful time in Maui and Valerie was an extremely gracious host. The property is beautiful and we enjoyed sitting down by the ocean. However, being that this lovely little cottage is right on the Hana Hwy, it can be very noisy at times. If noise is not a factor for you, then this cottage is a good choice.
