We wanted to spend more time in the Hana area on our third visit to Maui. We spent three days/nights at Maria's cottage which allowed much more time to explore the area, with less time driving. With Maria's advice, we were able to find access to the less marked areas, while visiting her recommended local eateries along the way. Wonderful! What we didn't expect, is how much we would enjoy also staying at the cottage looking at the gorgeous landscape and listening to the birds. Maria has created a real gem! We WILL be back!
