My husband and i are having serious withdrawal from our two week stay at hale kana kala. Dan and sarah made us feel at home from day one, even worrying about us when we were out late. The sweet cottage was just perfect for the two of us. The king sized bed is extremely comfortable and the kitchen is well-equipped with every amenity we needed. I loved using the washing machine and then hanging the clothes on the line. One evening, dan and sarah cooked a luau for us when we were celebrating the 50th wedding anniversary of my husband's brother and his wife. We had sixteen people and the food was outstanding. South kihei road is convenient for great beaches about two miles away and more shopping than you could ever hope for. Walking distance to a great little farmer's market. I could go on and on and certainly wax prophetic. Awesome. Awesome. We booked 8 months ahead, so be aware that you may need to as well. Or, call them for last minute cancellations. You will not be disappointed...

We stayed 10 nights in their new studio. Dan & sarah are people we met 4 years ago and they are family to us now. The studio is well equipped and has all you need for a long or short stay. Over the years we have found places on the island to go (local hang outs) that are not in the book and this is credit to dan & sarah. Trust me and my wife, you will not regret staying in this studio or meeting dan & sarah. This location is a short drive to the beaches and watering holes. Just 20 minutes to the airport in kahului. 'see you next year, dan & sarah

Our 10 day stay at the cottage was wonderful. Our host; sara and dan were and are the best host. We lacked nothing; everything we needed and then some was at our disposal to use. The location of the cottage is in a perfect location to have access to shopping, beach, and dining. The amenities were ample. Sara and dan keep the cottage and landscape immaculate. The cottage is perfect for couples of the mature status. The next time we visit we will be staying at the cottage. We have already recommended the cottage to others. Loved our stay and our hosts; sara and dan.

The cottage was a great place to stay it was clean and had everything we needed.

Sarah & dan were perfect hosts and always helpful if we had any questions.

It was located close to restaurants and the beach.

One restaurant we loved was 3's in kehei happy hour drinks were half priced and so were the delicious appetizers.

Beautiful hosts beautiful island. I truly feel at home when istay here. I would rather stay here than on the waterfront because of all the things that come with the kanakala cottage. It comes with it's own yard, lawn, patio, mango tree shade, pic-nick table bbq wood or gas, laundry, you don't have to rent snorkel gear, boogie boards,bicycles. They even loaned us a guitar, parking next to kitchen door...Etc..Etc...Etc!

The host family are experts in providing for vacationers needs and have worked in the service industry for decades.. The location in central kihei is a close walk to the beach and not to far from the highway. We enjoyed our vacation that much more by feeling comfortable and welcomed with everything we needed .

The property is well maintained, clean and conveniently arranged. We attended the halloween street party in lahaina, recommended by the hosts, it was a blast.

We have a chef in our party so our best meals were at the cottage. I highly recommend staying here where warm aloha awaits. My only complaint is that their calendar is full.

Owner's response: some people give hugs. Some people give help. You guys gave your all. Thanks for being patient with having my large family around on the weekend, for my mother's memorial.It must have been a bit overwhelming at times with so many people, we apologize. We hope you come back again for the third time, but be sure gloria comes too.

We booked to stay in maui for 3 weeks in august and travelled with our 6 year old daughter who has a few additional needs. We wanted to stay somewhere that would be like a home-from-home and not a hotel or apartment. Sarah and dan’s ohana ‘hale kanekala’ lived up to every 5 star review that it has.

The cottage is really nice – a good open plan kitchen, dining area and lounge, spotless bathroom and large bedroom with air conditioning. Additionally the bbq/garden area is lovely and peaceful to sit in, with shade under either the mango or orange tree! There is also a computer for internet acess, plenty of water sports equipment, beach towels, bicycles, parking in the shade of the carport and a handy washing machine. The location is also great – easy access to beaches, supermarkets, restaurants and main roads to other parts of the island (nothing is very far away on maui). For breakfast we thoroughly enjoyed stella blues most days, less than 5mins away.

Most importantly for us, it was a clean and safe place to take our daughter. Being at the cottage made us feel less like tourists and more part of the local community and sarah and dan’s family. They were very kind and hospitable, ensuring we had everything we needed and were generous enough to include us in some of their activities. Our little girl spent many happy mornings chatting with her adopted “hawaiian granny”.

Sarah and dan’s valuable local knowledge also helped us get the best from our trips on the island. Our experience of maui was truly enhanced by staying here. We would go again in an instant and are happy to recommend it as somewhere comfortable, safe and relaxing to stay. You will not be disappointed.

Firstly i would like to say thank you to sarah and dan for allowing us to stay in your cottage. It is exactly what we wanted, close to everything and centrally located to where ever we needed to go. If i ever come back to maui you will be on the top of my list of place to stay. Also the information you provided us when we arrived helped us in making decisions on what to see and where to go. Once again thank you. Kym and rob australia

Description of cottage was very accurate. Has everything you need! Owners very helpful & friendly. I would recommend this place, very comfortable,nice patio to relax & close to beaches. Much more private than a hotel room and much more space. My expectations were exceeded here and made my vacation very enjoyable.

It was what we expected and we just feel like at home. Where else would you go to maui with a real

Hawaiian touch? Not those 5-stars hotels, or a luxury rental condos everywhere or even those fantastic resorts! Sarah & dan were very friendly and helpful. The place was well maintained and neat. Everything what you need in a vacation cottage like hale kanakala is provided for. The outside yard is great place to relax. The neighborhood is very quite yet we enjoyed listening the fantastic maui's wind like you're in the mountain. It is a convenient location, close to the beaches and shopping areas. We would have no problem coming back again. In fact, i have recommended this place to some of my friends already. I believed they will feel the same way as i do once they experience the magic of sarah and dan.

Sarah and Dan were wonderful hosts. The property was clean and had everything we needed to make the most out of our stay in Maui. Kihei was a great location for us to stay and experience more of the local flair of Maui but still convenient to everything a visitor could need. We hope we can stay here again when we return!

AFFORDABLE AND CENTRALIZED ACCOMMODATIONS

  • 5 of 5
Another Maui vacation has wrapped up and another stay with Sarah and Dan at their Kanakala vacation accommodations. This is our second stay in their studio after a few years of staying in the larger 1 bedroom they also have. This is a well equipped studio with all the essentials for the beach or wherever you choose to go as well as a kitchen that has all you need. If something is missing or needed Sarah and Dan will get it for you. The greatest thing about your stay here will be Sarah and Dan. They have become family to us and they include us in their's. We have parties with there friends who have now become our friends. They also respect your privacy should you choose to to go this direction. They are also very knowledgeable about the Island so you don't have to go far should you have any questions. This year being a Olympic year we spent many hours watching Canada compete on the outdoor patio and sharing a few bevies.

A RELAXING YET CENTRAL LOCAL GEM IN KIHEI

  • 5 of 5
Due to last moment booking, we could only stay the first half of our first trip to Maui at the 'hale kanekala' studio, but thanks to Sarah and Dan's welcoming ways, it was not to be missed. Sharing their cooking and personal Maui friends with us and the other visitors for a pot-luck evening was over the top.

The large, fully equipped kitchen Studio was very comfortable, with back door access to a large patio for leisurely breakfasts, with early morning sun and a lovely yard with yellow hibiscus flowers, followed by a short walk along the quiet street to the nearby beach.
The central Kihei location is excellent for vehicular access to all points on Maui, if you want to see it all, as we did.
On the return flight to Vancouver, Canada, we could not decide if we should share our discovery with friends, or keep it a secret for our next trip to beautiful Maui.
