We loved this quaint and funky unit. As promised it had a beautiful ocean view out the front and mtn sugar cane fields out the rear. The location is perfect to explore the east side and upcountry Maui. Don't expect resort condo conditions but do expect the true Paia experience. I had the best massage in years from Claudie at...

My wife and I stayed at the Gingerbread House for a week. We had a wonderful time during our stay. House was very clean and comfortable.

We had a great stay in the Coconut Apartment! It was perfect for my family, low key and centrally located for all of our plans on the island. We had a great time and would definitely stay there again!

My husband and I spent a blissful anniversary week at the Gingerbread House in Paia, HI. We are two active, nature loving, bicycle riding vegans and first time Maui explorers. We were more than satisfied with the privacy and comfort that the house provided. Poni, the house caretaker, was responsive to our needs and very pleasant. The house is tucked...

Stayed overnight at the Yoga Studio room booked through Spyglass. Very unique and cool room! Poni was very friendly. We found the room to be clean and the view out the huge round window was fun. Quirky stuff included the private bath that was outside and didn't have glass in the windows (had a bamboo shade) and the concrete sink...

We stayed at the Skyline apartment in Paia last week for a few nights and I am shocked to read the negative review below. We were more than happy with everything from start to finish. First we were greeted by Liam, Poni’s business partner who was friendly, welcoming and could tell us everything we needed to know and more about...

This apartment has great potential! It has a really cool design, great views, and a great feel of openness. The breeze comes in one and and out the other, two decks, awesome. We have some constructive criticism on the unit from a guest perspective: The first is to do with the cleanliness. The unit did not seem clean. The walls...

This is our second time staying at the Bicycle Inn and we thought it was great. This time we rented out all 3 rooms and essentially had a 3BR, 2BA condo to ourselves.

The Coconut Apt is a couple of houses off the road to Hana. Behind it is sugarcane fields. It is a one bedroom apt, with a futon in the living room; with ceiling fans in both rooms.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Spyglass Maui Rentals are two, well cared for homes, right next door to each other, in the middle of all of the North Shore beaches and less than a mile from Paia town, in a local, residential neighborhood. The closest beach access is a 5 minute walk away. The houses are owned by a two good friends and long time Maui residents, Liam McCormick and Poni Brendan, who call themselves family. Our on-sight manager, Sabrina, and full time housekeeper, Patti are here to assist you. The rentals are clean, comfortable and will make you feel like you are spending time in a "home away from home" rather than in a resort hotel. The Gingerbread House, at the rear of the property, is a very unique, two story, one bedroom house with a lanai off the second floor bedroom and an outdoor patio on the ground level. It has a jetted tub in the first floor bathroom. The Green Turtle House can be rented as a ONE or TWO bedroom house and can accommodate up to 6 guests when rented as a TWO bedroom. In our older reviews and on Google there is mention of the Bicycle Inn/House and the beachfront "Spyglass House". These are no longer our properties. The Gingerbread House and Green Turtle House have been under new management since the fall of 2014. The most current reviews of our properties can be found on Airbnb and VRBO. In our rentals, we try to provide everything that you will need to enjoy your vacation and leave your cares at home. Our focus is to create a lovely environment so that our guests can have a wonderful base from which to enjoy their vacation and explore all that is beautiful and special about Maui. Please contact us if you need additional information or have specific questions. During your stay, we are on-site and happy to help. Mahalo! ... more   less

“Keep a window or two open or maybe a ceiling fan running while you are gone during the day otherwise when you return it will be hot and humid.”

“We were really lucky: We paid for one of the rooms that had a shared bath, and no one joined us the two nights we were there, so we got an entire house all to ourselves. Before you book, consider e-mailing the owner and seeing if she can give you any heads up about how booked the place is. It would be a shame to pay extra for the suite if both other bedrooms stayed open, and if no one else is renting any of the space for the time you're there, you should definitely get a room there! An amazing deal.”
