MAUI NORTH SHORE OCEAN VIEW 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 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. 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. 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! Legal permitting RENT WITH CONFIDENCE With 18 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. There is a Rental Agreement to read, sign and return at time of booking. 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: THERE IS A RENTAL AGREEMENT TO READ, SIGN AND RETURN AT TIME OF BOOKING. Maui by the Sea Cottage sits off of Hana Highway, it is a 2 lane road). There can at times be excessive road noise. However, we have good insulation and have added central air conditioning to minimize the problem. There will be no refund given due to this situation. Absolutely NO smoking in or outside the cottage or on the property. No candle burning or open flame. Quiet hours are from 9pm to 8am.

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. 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.
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.
