The Inn at Mama's Fish House is an upscale home away from home

The studios and suites at this north shore Maui gem will accommodate your day-to-day needs.

Everyone knows about Mama’s Fish House. Delicious, award winning and easily one of the best in customer service. But did you know that sitting next to the restaurant are 12 recently renovated oceanfront living arrangements, ranging from a modern studio to a two-bedroom villa, that are all available to rent? It’s true, The Inn at Mama’s Fish House offers a variety of comfortable alternatives to staying at a resort or hotel.

The sound of rolling waves and ocean currents are easily heard from the lodges, mere steps away from the beach. To further this island-living vibe, each room is decked to the nines with Hawaiiana decor, wood furniture made by Maui artisans, tropical flower arrangements and local artwork. It’s an aesthetic that feels refined, but not overly so, and favors a relaxed atmosphere.

Practically built for a long vacation or traveling family, The Inn at Mama’s Fish House has everything you need for day-to-day living and can easily serve as a luxurious home away from home. Looking to cook? Both the one- and two-bedroom suite options come with a full marble top kitchen, equipped with Wolf and Subzero appliances, while the smaller spaces, such as the garden studio, features a kitchenette. Need to get some laundry done? A washer and dryer combo is available on-site to get those board shorts and bikinis back in tip-top shape. And, unlike other alternative accommodations, the daily room cleaning service for all rooms is included in the price.

Minutes away from Paia town and Hookipa Beach, the location of these villas are hard to beat. Keep in mind, however, that staying at the inn will not get you a table at the restaurant. It’s still advised to call well ahead of time to make a reservation. And if you do make it to Mama’s Fish House for an ample dinner of gourmet seafood dishes that put Mama’s Fish House on the map, just know that your comfy bed is only steps away.
