The Inn at Mama’s Fish House on Maui’s north shore has landed on an elite list.Â The January/February edition of Costal Living magazine has named the accommodations outside of Paia among its “Top 10 Romantic Island Inns.”Â The property was constructed in 1996 and consists of 12 cottages nestled in a coconut grove along picturesque Kuau Cove and adjacent to the Mama’s Fish House Restaurant.Â The Coastal Living Magazine has a readership of 3.5 million, and introduces readers to homes, destinations, and activities in coastal communities.
“We’re humbled and honored to be included in such exceptional company,” said Karen Christenson Marshall, vice president of Mama’s Fish House Restaurant & Inn.
“We’ve always had a vision to make The Inn at Mama’s Fish House a special retreat, someplace where it’s natural for romance to blossom,” said Marshall.
To further its appeal to couples, the inn added three executive garden guest rooms in late 2008, each specifically designed as a romantic hideaway, complete with private courtyard and luxury bath.
The Polynesian dÃ©cor was inspired by the owner’s sailing adventures through the South Pacific in the late 1950s, and features unique woodwork by local craftsmen and artwork form island artists.
A Hawaiian-themed beach house known for its romantic setting and highly attentive staff, Mama’s Fish House is most famous for its incredibly fresh fish, expertly prepared, and local, fresh ingredients. Located on the secluded beach on Maui’s North Shore, the restaurant was founded 35 years ago by Floyd and Doris Christenson and remains a family-run operation with son, Keith, and daughter, Karen.
