Paia Maui HI 96779 - street scene

Paia Maui is always a hot real estate market with plenty of demand, and little supply of affordable homes for sale.  The oceanfront and beachfront properties really appeal to the water sports fans from around the world, since they can windsurf and kite from their own front yards in the ideal locations.  Great shopping and dining options in this funky old plantation era town add to the ambiance that you won't find in too many places anymore on Maui.
