|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
Far from the crowds and Condos... Far from the noise and tourist traps... There is the old Hawaii of HANA, a small community overlooking beautiful Hana Bay on the windward east end of Maui. Hana is cooled by the trade winds that blow across the Pacific and nourish us with evening showers that make this part of Maui lush and tropical.
As you travel the magical 'road to Hana' you leave the real world behind and slowly enter the land of old Hawaii, with waterfalls, majestic coastal views and jungle rain forests. By the time you arrive in Hana you will sense a slight change. You will feel a slower pace, more peaceful and quiet.
As you follow the private drive through the tropical flower garden to our secluded Tradewinds Cottage, you will discover the Hawaii that you came to see.
Surrounded by exotic flowers and tropical fruit trees, our two bedroom, one bath cottage has a full kitchen with cable TV, VCR and CD stereo, plus wireless internet access.
The cottage has a queen size bed, two twin beds and a queen size sleeper sofa. You'll enjoy the splendor of the slopes of Haleakala while relaxing in your private hot tub or cooking your favorite island-style feast on the barbeque under your covered lanai.
This vacation rental is fully permitted. Permit #BBHA 2013/0005, SUP2 2012/0034

We paid over $300 for one night stay for 4 people, 2 adults and 2 kids. We've stayed in Hana before but the value compared to this rental was lacking. There are better, more updated and comfortable houses for rent in Hana - do your research!
birds on property, vegetation lovely
Internet - slow, but not sure it could be faster out here ;)
We arrived, there was no way to know what the Internet password was, we had to drive down the road a few miles until we got reception so we could look up the email with this information
Was prepared with making our meal here, NO OVEN and we planned on crispy potato wedges with our hamburgers, silly me for not noticing under the kitchen amenities that there wasn't one? Thought this was standard and they did advertise 'newly remodeled' - our bad for overlooking NO DISHWASHER either and a sign that says please wash your dishes - fine, but very inconvenient if you're travelling and eating your meals in.
The kitchen cabinets are cheap and already falling apart - very sparce on being 'fully equipped' and no grill spatula to be found for grilling =(
Hot Water - dark when we figured out we needed to turn on the propane hot water switch so we waited until morning to wash our dishes and take showers - another huge disappointment. Crazy setup as we had to stop a shower and go flip the switch again.
Rubbish Bins - not emptied on our arrival, so we were throwing our recyclables in the trash because it was too full to put ours in
Hot Tub - there are a million mosquitoes out and makes it impossible to really enjoy this feature - LoL
Seating - for 4, not very comfy - the coffee table is glass, so it's not like kicking your feet up is enjoyable, there's a couch that is nice but the ends should recline or they should have an ottoman - there's one recliner that is awesome
TV - it was dark between 6:30 and 7 pm so we thought we'd watch a show - the TV is ancient and we couldn't hook our laptop to it as it isn't HD compatible so we tried watching a movie on our laptop but it was a little tough
Beds - two twins were cheap as you can find them and the double was so uncomfortable that my hips actually hurt the whole walk I took in the morning =(
Windows - no locks on some of them - not exactly safe
Bedroom - main - light switch not only controls the light and fan but the switch you plug your phone into by the bed stand - that should have been labeled as such! So when we turned the light out our phone didn't charge.
We are truly enjoying our stay in this wonderful cottage. We took a hot tub last night and enjoyed dinner and breakfast on the deck, surrounded by ginger plants. It is peaceful, clean and quaint. The bed is comfortable and the owners are nice and very accommodating. We have a condo in sunny Kihei (Maui Kamaole I-117) but we enjoy a relaxing get-away to the rain forest of Hana to spend time on the beaches & on the rugged coast. The weather was wonderful and Hana has breathtaking beauty. We hope to stay at Tradewinds Cottage again soon.
My boyfriend and I live in Lahaina on Maui, but we had a houseguest coming to stay who always wanted to check out Hana. The three of us are not much for camping, so on a whim, I booked this cottage not really knowing what to expect, but when we arrived, we all fell in love with the place. The cottage is about 3 miles outside of Hana town, but only a 5 minute drive away from one of my favorite beaches on Maui: Wai'anapanapa's Black Sand Beach. The cottage is tucked down at the edge of a flower farm, so the landscaping is gorgeous. We were promptly greeted by a super sweet pitbull girl. During our two night stay, we saw her everyday--she might have even been the highlight of our trip! The cottage is cozy and quaint with all the fixings: fully equipped kitchen (minus an oven), a TV with a DVD player, a stereo system, beach and bath towels, and a hot tub. The two bedrooms were comfortable and cool (we didn't even need to turn on the fans at night), and it was absolutely lovely falling asleep to the sound of rain at night. The cottage was a great home base for all of our adventures. We cooked breakfasts at home, then went out for adventures (if you can, check out the great hike along the Pipiwai Trail up to Waimoku Falls at the Haleakala National Park). We made a big dinner the night after our hike, but the night we arrived we went to the Hana Ranch Restaurant (pricey but delicious). We wanted to check out the small Thai place that's in town, but it was closed when we rolled up to the place. The Tradewinds Cottage is one of the most charming, well-equipped rentals that I've had the pleasure of staying at in Hana. We will definitely be booking this place for future visits.
Super clean. Plenty of basic household good (ie; pot, pans, dishes, towels, coffee, teas, etc....) We stayed one night and slept well even with the windows open (no A/C like 50% of every place in Maui) in the pouring rain. Only down fall was the lack on WiFi which is at the main house and will not reach this cottage. But still would stay again. Just FYI you will not have cell service (Att or Sprint) at this cottage. To some thats a blessing.
