At Da Beach House Maui, we love to outfit the whole family in unique MAUI UV protection rash guards, board shorts, swim apparel, t-shirts, tank tops, and sweatshirts. We have one retail location on Maui at Kihei Kalama Village. Whether shopping on-line or in our retail store, we love inviting our customers to be a part of our “ohana” family. The owner of Da Beach House Maui, Annie Lai, designs about half of the merchandise and hand selects the rest. She created the store based on her passion for fashion, surfing, and sun protection. Since she designs a lot of the merchandise, Annie controls the size ranges so she has a lot of coordinating outfits for adults and children as well as making some men’s t-shirts up to a 3x. All the baby and kid apparel is based on Annie’s daughter, Kaili. Annie wanted to make sure that she found the perfect sun protection hat as well as rash guards for Kaili. When Kaili grew older, she always wanted to wear her mom’s hoodies, so we have some favorite best-selling rainbow tie dye and lifeguard hoodies for kids and adults.
Annie Lai grew up in Orange County and went to the Haas Undergraduate Program at the University of California at Berkeley. After graduating from Haas, Annie was the Recruiting Manager at KPMG in San Francisco. One of her recruits recruited her to return back to her alma mater where she was the Director of Admissions and Operations at the Haas Undergraduate Program. While on vacation in Maui, Annie took a surf lesson and fell in love with surfing. She returned to California and surfed in Santa Cruz. Annie decided to follow her passion and moved to Maui in 2004. She pursued her love of surfing and fashion and built her business based on her passion. Her passion continues to thrive on Maui! Check out Annie Lai’s favorite things to do on Maui!
