The north shore has no high rise buildings and is the antithesis of the "resort" experience. Rather, here locals and visitors intermingle, the waves are world-class, and there's plenty of open space. Paia has galleries, restaurants, funky shopping and a wonderful natural foods grocery store called Mana Foods. It's a pretty laid back place.
This house is located in a neighborhood. There's a peek-a-boo view to the ocean. The walk to Paia town is about four minutes. It's on the mauka (mountain side) of Hana Highway, but it's far enough away from the road you can't hear the cars. There are neighborhood sounds: people, children, dogs, and a school bus that comes through during the school year.
Out back is a covered lanai. Here's where you may store gear, dry it out, work out kite line tangles, do yoga, host a bbq, and kids may play. There's a yard, picnic table, hammock, fruit trees, flowers, chairs, and some gear we leave for guests (snorkels, masks, some boogie boards, a cooler, etc.)
Also, as is very Hawaiian style, the washer/dryer is outside. This keeps the heat outside too. And, if you prefer to dry things in the sun, there's a clothesline.
Rooms are not huge, but there's plenty of space and a ceiling fan in each. There is no air conditioning and no house phone. Most homes on the north shore are cooled by the near constant trade winds coming in from the sea.
This is a well appointed plantation-style home that's perfectly situated for a relaxing north shore vacation.

The house and property was gorgeously upkept! The location was key, a simple walk to paia town center where there is plenty of beaches, eats and things to do! Very friendly accommodating staff! Highly recommend renting at bamboo gate or any of their properties on Maui!

We stayed in the bigger place first which is nice and has enough space for a family of five. It is well equipped and we loved to sit outside or take a shower in the outside bathroom. Later we stayed in the older part of the house and this place is just wonderful! The manager Ilse was very nice and helpful. It was great to just be minutes away from shopping, great dining opps and the beach...thanks for a wonderful stay!!
