Charming Beachfront Cottage in the Paia Area

Whoever said bigger is better, has yet to step foot in our charming beachfront, Hawaiian Plantation style home that we just listed in Kuau. This two bedroom/one bath cottage exudes charm and offers an ideal setting. You have back yard access to all of the Maui North Shore ocean sports. The windsurfing and surfing are great off of Kuau Point. You don’t need to rely on the notoriously fickle Hookipa Cam to check the surf at Ho’okipa Beach Park. Just look upwind from your back yard to get a gauge on the wind and the waves. Ho’okipa’s multitude of breaks attracts surfers, kiters and windsurfers from all over the globe. If you like to SUP, you can wave to friends and family sitting on the back porch as you paddle downwind on the world renowned Maliko run. If you prefer tamer pursuits in the ocean, the sands of Mama’s Beach are perfect for lounging and a reef keeps the waters right off the beach protected from the waves. It is a perfect place to cool off from the mid day sun.

The Kuau Point location is less than a mile from downtown Paia. There you will find charming shops, restaurants, galleries, yoga studios and the best little natural food store on the planet. Costco, The Maui Arts and Cultural Center, Kahului Aiport, Movie Theaters and UH Maui College are about 15 minutes away in Central Maui. Last but not least, one of the island’s best and most renowned restaurants is just a few doors down from the home. You are about a two minute walk from Mama’s Fish House and its Mai Tais, delectable Ceviche and melt in your mouth Sashimi.

If you have a bigger family or you expect lots of house guests, this property does give you the option to grow. The lot is over 13,000 square feet with the room and the zoning to build an additional structure.

This beachfront opportunity is offered via the Maui Real Estate Team for $2,750,000. Check out the 129 Aleiki Place listing page for additional photos and details. Qualified buyers should contact The Maui Real Estate Team to arrange a showing.
