This time of year the island is usually pretty slow with visitors on Maui.  We finish off our winter season, and hit a low in visitor count heading into summer.  This brings me to another point about Houna Kai Resort, is that it is pretty booked and the pools are full with happy guest.  You have a very strong yearly visitor count that stay at this luxurious Maui oceanfront development.

Northshore Maui Vacation Rental

 

Well we are headed into June season with beautiful weather.  Memorial weekend offered still winds, and playful surf all over the island.  This time of year people that love to get out in the ocean change water sports.  There is the serious crew of downwinders that are waiting for the trade winds to blow so that they can launch from Maliko Bay for a coast run to Kanaha Beach by Maui’s airport in Kahului.   I usually end up doing a few runs over the summer on Maui’s Northshore, but I like to mix it up.  Check out our northshore vacation rental in Haiku Maui.

Kitesurfing on Maui

Kitesurfing on Maui

In the summer on Maui the south shore comes alive.  Maui’s summer beaches bring out families and friends hanging out on the beach, trucks loaded with surfboards, tents, coolers and sunscreen.  I like to mix my summer surfing up with longboards, short boards and standup boards, so the truck is loaded down.  My wife has taken up standup board surfing, she loves playing in the surf on small days.

Summer time also brings in windsurfers from all over the world.  I have taken up windsurfing over the last five years and really enjoy it.  I been a surfer all my life, and I use to sail cats, so a transition to windsurfing was very natural for me.  Paia Maui is the center of surf and windsurfing world.  Paia is a gathering place with great places to eat and finish off the day with your friends. Summer time I usually windsurf at Kanaha Beach on Maui’s Northshore.  It’s always nice meeting old faces that return to Maui every year to windsurf on Maui’s Northshore.  Kitesurfing is also very big on Maui.  You can take lessons to windsurf and kitesurf at many of Maui’s surf centers like Hi-Tech Maui and Action Sports in Kahului.

So if Maui might be your island destination for this summer, keep in mind our vacation rental on Maui’s Northshore, very cozy two-bedroom cottage on two acres.  Pineapple Cottage is loved by our guest for a quiet, peaceful getaway, stream running in the gulch, tropical flowers and fruit trees.  Very different experience than condo living in Kihei.  Pineapple Cottage is situated in an ideal location in Haiku, minutes away from Haiku town, and 15 minutes to Paia Town.  Hookipa and Baldwin Beach are close by for windsurfing and surfing, or just a morning walk on the beach.  Visit our website at Pineapple Cottage Haiku Maui.

Windsurfing, Kitesurfing on Maui’s Northshore

Kitesurfing on Maui

Kitesurfing on Maui

Maui is known around the world as the windsurfing capital of the world. It is home to the Aloha Classic windsurfing event at Hookipa Beach Park, which last year was a huge success. The center of the windsurfing and kiting world has to be Paia Maui.  Paia is such a cool town, with visitors arriving from all over the world.  On any given day you have world class windsurfers and Kiteboarders enjoying the lifestyle that Paia has to offer.  Paia Maui is a melting pot of talented watermen, artist and beach lovers from different parts of the globe. 

Windsurfing on Maui

Windsurfing on Maui

Windsurfing and Kiting are two of Maui’s Northshore wind sports that are driven by the trade winds in Hawaii.  After a rather light winter of winds, it seems that we are looking at some excellent conditions. I keep hearing that we are looking at a La Nina weather pattern this spring and summer.  That means it should bring strong winds for windsurfing and kite surfing on Maui.

Surfing on Maui

My son Micah at Jaws Maui

Sunday was a great day for windsurfing at Kanaha Maui.  The windsurfing report didn’t show any sign of winds. I live in Haiku, just past Hookipa Beach Park.  I was working on my vacation rental with my wife and I noticed that the winds were getting to be pretty steady.  So without hesitation, I loaded up my windsurfing gear and headed to Kanaha.  To my surprise, the wind filled in and it was sunny, with steady winds.  It was a great day on the water.

windsurfing on Maui

Steve & Swiss clients and good friend Sandra

One of the reasons I moved to Maui 43 years ago was the lifestyle.  I been surfing at Hookipa Beach for 43 years, and the last five years have taken up windsurfing.  Being a Realtor on Maui for 21 years, it allows me time to get in the water depending on conditions, and plenty of time to take care of my clients and friends real estate needs on Maui.  Maui is a unique place to call home.  Trip Advisor just named Maui the best island destination in the world.  Okay I love to travel with my wife, to exotic places to surf and explore, but I have to say waking up in Haiku on Maui’s Northshore never gets old.

So if you’re looking at buying a home on Maui’s Northshore, keep me in mind for all your real estate needs.  My real estate website is a very informative source of information if you’re looking at buying real estate on Maui. If you are looking at visiting Maui’s Northshore for a windsurfing getaway?  Visit my website for our vacation rental in Haiku, Pineapple Cottage Vacation rental on our 2.5 acres’ parcel.

Paia Northshore of Maui Getaways

                                                           Maui’s Northshore

Paia Maui Oceanfront Homes

Paia Maui Oceanfront Home

 

Maui is such a unique island in the Hawaiian island chain.  Maui has a little bit of everything, from dry climates like Kihei, Wailea and Lahaina.  To places like Kula Maui where immigrants found the soil rich for growing all kinds of vegetables and flowers.  Lahaina Maui was a whaling community in the 1800’s, but now Lahaina town is a popular destination for tourist looking to buy art work, fine dining at places like Kimo’s Restaurant on the ocean, to whaling excursions on the Trilogy, Coon family sailing excursion.  Surfing is really big in Lahaina in the summer time.  You also have Kaanapali Resort, with great hotels like Hyatt Regency, and the Westin Hotel.  Whaler’s Village offers shopping and many choices for dinning and listening to Hawaiian music.

Maui's Northshore

Maui’s Northshore

On the South side of the island, is Kihei Maui nestled on the south shore. In Kihei there are vacation rentals in condos at places like Maui Kamaole and the Mana Kai located right on the ocean.  Wailea is where my office is, I work with Island Sotheby’s International Realty in the shops of Wailea.

My choice of places to live is on Maui’s Northshore.  I love leaving the busier areas of the island.  When I first hit Spreckelsville and head into Paia town I know I am getting close to home.  Paia use to be a sleepy plantation town, with mom and pop stores.  Many of the stores were owned by Chinese and Japanese families, but over the years have been taken over with restaurants like Flatbread Maui, with “Ono” pizza. Another island favorite is Paia Fish Market; I love their fish burgers. 

Maui northshore oceanfront homes

You will find that many island visitors, looking for a different island experience and looking for vacation rental on Maui’s Northshore.  From Spreckelsville to Kuau Maui there are vacation rental homes on the beach in Paia Maui.  Some visitors like the advantage of walking out of their vacation rental and walking around town.  Paia Inn is located right in Paia town, a very cool place to stay if you want to be right in town, easy access to food and the beach.

So as I continue my drive home from work in Wailea, driving through Paia is always entertaining.  Paia is such a cool town, you have windsurfer, kiters, surfers, hippies, tourist, beach lovers and people from all over the world.  Paia is a very friendly town, the locals are pretty happy, many working in Paia area, or just getting out for the water from a surf session.

As you drive through Paia you come upon one of Maui’s favorite restaurants Mama’s Fish House.  Most island visitors can’t resist Mama’s Fish House for lunch or dinner.  And why not, it is such a beautiful location on the water and the fresh fish is to die for.  Many locals go to Mama’s for birthdays and anniversaries.

Now this is where the real adventure begins.  To live the dream of old Hawaii, and surfing on Maui’s Northshore is what drew me to Maui.  The Northshore as you leave Paia takes on a more tropical setting.  Hookipa Beach Park is the hub of the Northshore.  My kids grew up there surfing, and my boys competing in surf contest with their dad for many years.  Both my sons are very impressive surfers, grown men and fathers on Maui.  I still love to surf at Hookipa, been riding waves out there of over 40 years.  Hookipa is also the windsurfing mecca of the world.  On any given day you will have the best windsurfers in the world out tearing up the surf.  I started windsurfing about five years ago, though I love to surf at Hookipa, my skill level is more to the liking of Spreckelsville, or Kanaha Beach just outside the airport.  Hookipa has a way of sucking you into the rocks even the best windsurfers take a walk across the rocks. so you really need to be up on your skills, maybe someday I will be out there.

Maui Windsurfing

Maui windsurfing

 Windsurfing on Maui in the 80’s really woke up the town of Paia.  In the boom days of windsurfing, Paia town was discovered, and people from around the world flocked to experience the consistent trade winds and excellent surf.  Every year you have the Aloha Classic Windsurfing contest, that brings the best windsurfers to the Northshore to compete in a world class event.  Maui has many local windsurfers like World Champion Robbie Naish, Levi Siver, Matt Pritchard, and Josh Stone just to name a few. 

Kiteboarding I would have to say is the new boom on the Northshore.  I been tempted to give it a try, but I have enough water sports right now.  I love watching these kiters fly through the sky.  At Kanaha Beach their kite’s dot the skyline, pretty amazing to watch.

So as I continue my drive past Hookipa, if I don’t pull over for a surf check I am finally heading home.  For me this is what it’s about, when you drive through Maliko Gulch you enter Haiku.  Haiku is a laid back community that use to be an area for farming pineapples and sugar cane.  Haiku really offers the tropical getaway that you dream about, with lush tropical homes.  Just about everything grows from pineapples, bananas, organic vegetables, to tropical flowers.  My wife and I spend a lot of time working in our yard, a favorite pass time.  My organic garden is coming back to life, after finishing the remodel on our cottage.

Haiku has been my home for 40 years, my wife is born and raised in Haiku, and that is where we decided to raise our family.  Being able to dash to a local pool and take a swim with our kids and dogs over the years has been their experience growing up. Haiku is a small community with shops, and great places to eat.  It is also the center of the windsurfing and surfing community, with surfboard builders and windsurf factories that have been making world class equipment for years.  This is my life and experience that I love.  I love the local vibe and the diverse people that make up the Haiku community.

So for many visitors that have stayed in the resorts and condos, they are looking for a different island experience.  Many European travelers, they prefer the bed and breakfast and vacation rental experience of having your own home to enjoy your visit on Maui.  What Haiku offers is   a tropical destination that is rooted in the Hawaiian culture, tropical plants, with warm trade winds and relaxed island life style. 

My wife and I, with the help of our kids, developed our 2.5 acres over the 26 years we have lived on the property.  First we built our home, planted all our favorite fruit trees, tropical flowers, palm trees.  Many of our Royal Palms which now grace resort properties at the Andaz Hotel and the New Marriott in Kahului.  We have had horses, ducks, chickens, dogs over the years.  Now we just have one kitty and Duke, our ball loving dog.  So our kids have all grownup and have their own families.  So that’s when last year we decided to get our B&B license for our cottage.  Pineapple Cottage Haiku Maui vacation rental was born and open for business in December of 2015.  Pineapple Cottage is a two-bedroom cottage set along the gulch.  In the morning you will experience birds signing and the sound of a stream running.   We really put out heart and soul into Pineapple Cottage to make it feel the way you would expect if it was your own home.  So we really tried to make quality improvements from new wood floors, new bathroom with walk in shower, and quality furnishing. 

That work never ends, I am just finishing a beautiful hedge made of Red King Gingers and Pink Ti leaves.  So we are a work in progress, looking to create the perfect tropical experience.  My wife Ivy is an artist, so you will see her art and style throughout Pineapple Cottage.  Our Northshore vacation rental is really easy to get to, we are the first turn off Haiku Rd. and just a short drive up the hill.  We are tuck away on a private flag lot road giving you complete privacy.  Haiku town is just minutes away for shopping and dining.  In the winter if you’re looking to experience huge surf, Jaws is just 10 minutes away.

Our guest has found it very peaceful and very desirable setting.  Hookipa Beach Park is just 10 minutes away, and Paia town is 15 minutes away, so very accessible to life on Maui’s Northshore.  So if you’re looking for more of an experience of living in Old Hawaii?  Escape to paradise at Pineapple Cottage vacation rental on Maui’s Northshore.  Visit Pineapple Cottage website. Might just be your next island holiday.  Also if you’re in the market for real estate on Maui, I been selling real estate on Maui for 21 years.
