Want to get away? This quaint little all solar cottage is the perfect escape for two. It is nestled on the lush east side of Maui, close to Hana, with a 100 acres of land at your doorstep. The cottage is completely furnished with hardwood floors, granite counter tops and beautiful views of the mountain and ocean. This is a perfect retreat--quiet, romantic, peaceful and serene.
The hundred acres on which the cottage is located provides the opportunity for hiking excursions. Or for other day trips continue to follow the road to Hana where you'll find beautiful beaches, Seven Pools, snorkeling at Hana Bay and horseback riding.
Let the aloha spirit settle gently at your doorstep here at Mack's Shack and create the vacation of your dreams!
What a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the view. This cottage was exactly what we wanted and enjoyed our stay immensely. The cottage was exceptionally clean. It is definitely off the beaten path as they say but that is what we look for on our vacations. The nearest town is almost 8 miles away but the winding road makes it take about 30 minutes to get there but the scenery is beautiful. The internet was not working when we arrived and they were unable to repair while we were there but the manager graciously gave us a discount on our stay for our inconvenience which was greatly appreciated. I might add that we had no issues with the solar aspect of the cottage or the water conservation as other reviews have stated. There is no cell phone service but there is a land line for phone calls should you need to call back to the mainland. Both Debby and Karen were great to work with and since my husband has business in Hawaii we will most likely be back to this place. If you are looking to get away from it all and just sit back and enjoy the view this is it.
This was our second time staying at Mack's Shack and I can't tell you how much we love this place. We again had so many cool adventures around Hana that I'll never forget, and mornings and evenings are so relaxing around the house. For those who want an off-the-beaten-path experience of real Hawaii, this is a perfect place to stay in a perfect setting.
My wife and I loved staying here... private, comfortable and clean, stunning views. Close to things, but away from it all. We are planning to go back!
We are a local Maui family who lead a very busy life as business owners with two small kids (yes even in Maui life can be crazy and hectic!) We love to escape to Hana to really slow down and feel like we went back in time. This is the first time we stayed at Mack's shack and I can say with certainty it won't be the last! The first night we were there we told the boys the wifi and tv was broken (even though it was not) and with no cell service or tv to distract us, we connected as a family like we have not in a long time. Being off the grid was a very cool experience and it gave us a chance to teach our kids about renewable resources and how we should not waste energy. We loved walking the property, picking fresh guava fruit from the trees and just relaxing to the ocean view. There was no need that was unmet and the house was in beautiful condition. It was so much nicer than we thought it was going to be, I think it needs a new name as it most certainly is not a shack! We liked to call it our cabin, I felt like I was "glamping" which is pretty much the only kind of camping I participate in so it was perfect. A hot shower and a well stocked kitchen is the way to go! I would highly recommend this property for anyone who is looking for an authentic Maui experience. Who needs pools when you can jump into a natural pool at the bottom of a waterfall or take a short drive to some of the most epic beaches on the entire island!!
Mahalo for this authentic Hana, Hawaiian experience. OMG = PARADISE FOUND!!!
I never want to leave this place: Beautiful, powerful, spiritual. A piece of my soul
will always remain here at Mack's Shack! : )
BTW, several improvements have been made to their original solar system, so did not
experience any issues whatsoever. It's very comfortable, relaxing, and well decorated.
Mack's Shack in Hana is perfect for a couple wanting to get away in peaceful isolated seclusion, but it's right off the Hana Highway so it's easily accessible. It's surrounded by an abundance of nature and spectacular views. Being off the grid posed no problems with electricity, and there's enough rain water for washing and bathing, but bring plenty of drinking water (and food if you want to have more options and better prices than in Hana). The outdoor shower is awesome! The trail up the property and gate leading up to it need maintenance to make it more accessible, but we hiked it anyway in tall grasses. The fresh giant wild pig droppings made us turn around, but if there was a bit more of a trail we'd feel safer. That's the only complaint, everything about the cottage and main lot is perfect! Especially having no neighbors...
