Paia Real Estate
Find Paia homes for sale on Maui’s northshore. Paia takes on many forms—it’s an ocean-lover’s dream, a haven for hippies, a hotspot for the young and hip crowd, a buffet for foodies, and a shopper’s mecca. It’s the kind of place where worlds collide and coexist to create a wonderfully eclectic environment like no other. Paia real estate is all about the northshore lifestyle.
The string of towns that comprise the northshore include Spreckelsville, Paia, Kuau, and Haiku. Each has its own personality and attractions, and there’s a wide range of options when searching for Paia real estate.
Spreckelsville lies just a few miles east of Kahului International Airport, and is the first town you’ll approach when approaching Paia. This small town is made of a quiet neighborhood
filled with luxury homes just steps from popular Baby Beach. This tiny but posh town is also home to the membership-only Maui Country Club, which features a nine-hole golf course, tennis courts, a swimming pool and a restaurant. Spreckelsville residents need drive just a few minutes east to Paia for shopping, activities, and nightlife, making it ideal for those who want to be away from the crowds and close to the action.
No matter the time of year, Paia is constantly buzzing with excitement and activity— especially during the winter months, when massive waves attract surfers and windsurfers to this ocean playground. It’s important to note that while North Shore beaches tend to be more rugged and wild than their south shore counterparts, the coastline here still offers miles of great beaches, calm shorelines protected by reef, and many sunny days.
Paia’s unofficial town center is the beloved health-food supermarket Mana Foods, which sells everything from exotic produce and Maui-made hummus to organic toothpaste and raw desserts. Dining options in Paia are equally eclectic, and include favorites like Flatbread Company pizza, and the landmark Paia Fish Market.
Like several other areas around Maui, Paia is a former plantation town, which means the real estate offerings here include smaller, single-family homes that harken back to simpler times. These rustic and charming Paia properties neighbor newer homes, as well as oceanfront estates.
Just a mile past Paia is Kuau. Residents here enjoy the amenities of Paia while being mere minutes away from the action. Those searching for a home in Kuau have options including a residential community with single-family homes, like Kuau Bayview, or larger luxury properties that border the North Shore coastline. Highlights of this “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” town are the world-famous Mama’s Fish House and nearby Hookipa Beach Park.
