YOUR COMFORTABLE, LOVELY HANA BASE

Hana House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

You drive some two hours on the Hana Highway, one of the USA’s most renowned roads, crossing about sixty bridges as you wind along the scenic crags of Haleakala marveling at the waterfalls and looking down on the wide ocean. This spectacular journey takes you to the best place in the world, in our view. Our beaches—there are six of them, all quite different—are never crowded, our ocean and mountain views are everywhere superb, our people delightful, our rain forest is fascinating and our climate perfect. The spiritual feeling of old Hawai’i is hard to find nowadays, yet it permeates Hana, far from tourist hordes. But, if you are looking for a happy place to stay in Hana, you probably know all that already; and that a day trip is not enough. So here’s why to ring us to check out Kolea Cottage as your comfortable, competitively priced, Hana base for a few days or weeks.

Kolea, timber-built in 2003, is located a mile from Hana airport on the lower slopes of the 10,000 foot Mount Haleakala, surrounded by lawn carved out of the forest in a secluded corner of our fruit farm. Our 11-acre estate is bursting with flowers, fruit trees and tropical plants of many sorts. Guests are welcome to fruit from our trees, flowers from the garden and books from our library to read while listening to CDs of Hana musicians or the dawn and dusk bird chorus, enjoying the ocean view from the lanai.

Kolea’s principal bedroom has a queen bed, the second bedroom twin beds or king bed. Soft linen and towels are provided. Bathroom with tub. Covered lanai with seating. In total, 1,200 sq ft of comfortable home. The kitchen area, which has plenty of storage and a separate pantry, oven, microwave, blender, and ice-making fridge, is fully equipped with cooking and dining things. The washer and drier are in a closet off the lanai. Kolea has Time Warner cable connected to a 32” flat-screen color TV, CD/DVD player, telephone, internet and wi-fi. Any special requirements—give us a call and we will do our best.

We will on request provide snorkeling gear and beach towels, and we can guide you on the eating possibilities, hiking and many things to do around Hana, including special local events which are often not much publicized. None are more than a short drive away.

Kolea Cottage is named for the beautiful bird that owns the cottage lawn, otherwise known as the Hawaiian golden plover. You may meet her if you are here in the right season, for this remarkable navigator puts on her best plumage and departs in the spring to fly 3,000 miles across the ocean for a summer in Alaska, where she raises a family before returning accurately to our yard in the fall.

Pretty Good!

Convenient to all the Hana sites, pretty nicely maintained, really nice owner. If you want a relaxing spot for Hana, this is a great choice. There are some bugs, but if bugs bother you, you probably should not come to Hana!
Owner's Response: She’s right. We live in a tropical rainforest, and bugs are prolific as you would expect, many rather beautiful including various beetles and spiders. They don’t bother us residents and they’re not a problem if simple precautions are taken like putting food away. We protect the house well, but in Hana it is impossible to keep all geckoes and tiny ants out. The home is fully screened in, and coils will defend the lanai. Though so far as we know there is no malaria or other mosquito-born disease in Maui, it may be wise to bring mosquito discouragement.

Our family had a great time in Hana and this house was perfect for us. The pictures were pretty accurate. The owner was very nice and responsive to any questions or needs. We enjoyed the tour of his beautiful property. This house is very close to Black Sand Beach which our family loved exploring and great place to watch the sunrise. So many amazing places to explore in Hana!!

Hot Times at the Hana House

  • 4 of 5

The lush vegetation around the Hana House is breath taking, at least for those of us who grew up in the desert. Beautiful red Ti plants circle the house as a natural privacy barrier.

We stayed two nights in October. The days were warm as the trade winds were not cooperating, we asked the Cottage owner, Andrew, for a fan. He not only brought us a fan but some cooking oil as well,.. and some fresh picked avocados and bananas. Andrew encouraged us to wonder about the property and we did. On a walk we ran into him and his friendly dog which resulted in a tour of the various exotic fruit trees on his property. He was in the process of planting a crop of Palms to harvest heart of palms, we wish him success.

The house is very comfortable (with a fan), although it rained all night the second night and no fan was needed. I slept great on the queen bed. The house was clean and doesn’t show the wear and tear as you might think a rental would. I saw a previous review where someone complained about some dead bugs in the house. Yes there are bugs, the house is in a tropical rain forest and you should expect bugs. Having said that, the door and window screens were in perfect condition to keep most bugs out. As you visit around Hana you will see bugs and spiders everywhere and the locals just put up with them.

I highly recommend this property, and that you plan to stay in Hana instead of trying to drive around that end of the island all in one day. There are too many sights to see to just buzz by them.

I have rated the property as good only because I think the house should have ceiling fans in the bedrooms for rare hot nights, and because there was no out door grille. The kitchen however is fully stocked and ready for cooking. I really believe that this house is probably one of the better private rental properties in Hana.

Owner's Response: Though this is the first guest to note the need for fans, experiencing an especially hot period without the breeze that drives the wind powered fans, we have taken note and supplemented these in both bedrooms with electric fans.
The absence of an outside grill is due to the lay-out and our climate. The only convenient place to put one is the wooden lanai which, while plenty big enough, would be a fire risk. However, the living room ceiling is high and the kitchen more than adequate for cooking without the problem of smells.
