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.

Living among the locals!

  • 5 of 5
The studio was perfect for two people, the kitchen has everything you need and the living room/bedroom has a big bed and good storage for your luggage and stuff. It felt like living in a local home, and the area is away from all the touristy hotels. We loved Kihei, walking to cove park where you can surf, having breakfast at Kihei coffee, eating health food from Hawaiian moons and lots of other great places. This place is perfect if you want to be near the ocean but stay in a more "local version" of Maui. Sarah and Dan are great hosts, really nice people and very helpful, they make you feel at home straight away!

Very peaceful and private

  • 4 of 5
Property was easy to find. Unlike other reviews, I did not get awakened by roosters, although they were audible at some far distance. Ripe oranges in back yard tree were nice treat. Good shower, toilet tank dripped slightly, so filled randomly. A/C had a very hard time keeping up with large room volume. Kitchen had every possible tool and appliance. Huge bed. Good closet space. No good news, financial or weather channels on TV. Close to lots of restaurants and shopping. I would definitely return with no hesitation, would recommend to others.

Well worth it!!

  • 5 of 5
Don't underestimate the studio! We arrived to a spacious detached dwelling with fully stocked kitchen, bathroom, king size bed and dedicated parking spot. For beach goers Dan and Sarah provide beach blankets, snorkel equipment, boogie boards, just about everything you could ask for except a 12' longboard!! You are less than a 10 minute walk to the beach, and all amenities are close by in Kihei. We used the wonderful outdoor bbq often, and also the lime and orange trees growing on the property for food and marinades. Friendly neighbours as well, the only thing that might be improved would be a more capable air conditioner, it works fine but a little undersized for the studio. We would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Aloha & Mahalo for taking the time to share your comments. We're so glad you made use of the outdoor wood burning BBQ, it may take some time , but worth the flavor! We'll keep an eye open for a 12' longboard!!

Mahalo to Sarah and her family! My first time trip to Maui was amazing! I stumbled upon their vacation listing when I decided I wanted to do a solo trip for myself after my senior year. Assuring my parents that Sarah's place was safe, I flew over for 12 days. The place was perfect in every way! It had all the essentials necessary including recyclable bags for grocery shopping. It was comfortable and clean upon arriving with an insightful book of care instructions and tips and tricks about the island. Sarah and her husband greeted me with a warm embrace. The neighborhood was right off of South Kehei road so I was able to walk practically everywhere in Kihei. I ended up meeting 4 other girls my age who were staying in Sarah's cottage across the way. Sarah hosted a barbeque for all of us to welcome us to the island. When one of the girls got hit by a wave and had to go to the hospital Sarah graciously took the rest off us with her to pick her up from the hospital and make sure she was taken care of for the flight back home. The studio itself is perfect for solo travelers or pairs, and the surrounding area is full of welcoming people. When you rent from Sarah, your not only getting a place, but also getting a taste of true Hawaiian spirit and hospitality!

Thanks again to Sarah and her Family for such an amazing experience! I will be returning soon :)
