North Shore Maui Vacation Rentals

North Shore Maui Travel Guide
Rent a vacation rental accommodation on Maui's Famed North Shore (Paia, Haiku and Pauwela) in Hawaii. Located a short distance from the Kahului airport, there are many great beaches within walking distance. The lifestyle is laid back and centers on outdoor activities. Rent holiday lodging directly from owners of Hawaiian villas, homes and condo rentals and accommodations on the North Shore of the Island of Maui, HI, USA. Amongst the heart of North Shore are the quaint villages and towns of Haiku, Pauwela and Paia. Described as Maui’s “coolest” town, Paia features the classical early 1900s Hawaiian-town false front buildings. Paia town is full of interesting little boutiques, great restaurants, and even a couple of art galleries. This is an ideal place for a vacation rental.

Maui's North Shore is a haven for water-sport enthusiasts. People from around the globe visit North Shore, Maui for its world-class surfing, windsurfing, kite boarding and stand-up paddle boarding. From family-friendly little coves to surfing, windsurfing or kite-surfing at the likes of Ho'okipa and Kanaha, Maui's North Shore has it all. So whether you’re a participant or a spectator of these exciting sports, North Shore is the ideal Maui destination for you. Rent a vacation rental apartment or condo rental at this island of paradise. Vacation rentals are available through Owner Direct.

Unique and low-key, with an authentic and relaxed Hawaiian charm, there are no high-rise condos or hotels, just gentle trade winds and beautiful sandy beaches. The beach at Hookipa is a white sand beach. It is know as one of the best windsurfing spots in the world. Ho'okipa holds many professional contests each year. It also is a popular surfing spot. Paia Bay Beach is a lovely beach that is popular with the locals. Here you will find fishermen, surfers, and sunbathers. Baldwin beach is a long, very white beach that is not very crowded; tourists can often find themselves a nice spot all to their own. Take a stroll on the beach, take a swim in the ocean, get on a boogie board, body surf, or windsurf. At Maui’s North Shore beaches the activities are endless.

The drive around the north side of West Maui is absolutely breathtaking - in some ways more impressive than Hana Highway, which gets much more publicity. From Kapalua to Wailuku travelers can pass some of the most beautiful rugged coastline in the world, and the views of the lovely beaches and bays are magnificent.

The array of locally owned island shops and dining establishments offer warm hospitality and friendly service, with an atmosphere unlike any other town on the island. While not exactly off the beaten path, Paia offers a different feel from the hotel bordered Lahaina and condo bordered Kihei. In our small country town, people seem oblivious to the fact that bustling Lahaina and Kihei towns share the same island, providing a quiet slow paced lifestyle and attitude which visitors appreciate.
Our 39 unique shops make Paia a paradise for shoppers who are looking for the unusual, exotic or unique to take home. Our visitor enter a world of wonderful, unfamiliar merchandise that is often unavailable elsewhere on Maui or on the mainland.
Baldwin Beach Park has one of the most beautiful white sand beaches on Maui and offers full facilities. On weekdays, it is almost always uncrowded.
Ho’okipa Beach Park – the world’s best windsurfing - Only minutes away is Hookipa Beach Park, windsurfing capital of the world. In winter, monster surf rolls into the North Shore, with wave after wave and winds rolling in, making Hookipa a world class windsurf and kite surfing destination. Several professional competitions are held each year at Hookipa which attracts competitors from all over the world. Wave jumping and aerial flips are not unusual to see. The spectacle of it is awesome.

About Maui's North Shore - Owner Direct Vacation Rentals: The "North Shore" of Maui includes the small towns of Paia, Haiku and Pauwela. Maui's "North Shore" is located south-east of Kahului and the airport, midway between Hana and Wailea and Kaanapali. There are many great beaches within walking distance of Paia. The lifestyle is laid back and centers around outdoor activities.

Kuau Cove is located between Paia and Hookipa (about 1 mile outside Paia). This is an excellent windsurfing location. The water is warm, the views are beautiful, and the sun shines almost every day. In the summer the wind blows 15-25 knots and the rest of the year still offers pretty good sailing. Winter brings the big surf, with the occasional set of double mast-high waves rolling in. This is one of the World's most popular windsurfing areas. At world famous Ho'okipa Beach Park, surfers, windsurfers, bodyboarders, and swimmers come to spend the day in this beautiful spot. The waves here can reach up to 30 feet high in the winter months.

Today, Paia is hustling and bustling with a different kind of energy. Since the old sugarmill shut down in 2000 (one of the last few in the state), the economy has turned to tourism, windsurfing and surfing.
