Aloha! Welcome to Bayhouse Hana. Our one-bedroom 'Iwa Suite', with eight hundred thirty two square feet of floor space, overlooks beautiful Hana Bay. It offers a panoramic view of the bay from the spacious charm of the living room and dining area; an alcove off this area accommodates an additional two individuals on twin beds. Bayhouse Hana has a fully furnished kitchenette that opens into the living room - dining area and enjoys the same views.
The sandy beach of Hana Bay is a very short stroll away. Our peaceful town has two grocery stores, a post office, a gas station and three eateries among its businesses. All are within reasonable walking distance.
In the surrounding areas lie the Haleakala National Park at Ohe'o ( a swimming, hiking and camping idyll), and Kahanu Garden, part of the National Tropical Botanical Garden, home of the ancient Pi'ilanihale Heiau, largest Hawaiian temple site; the garden boasts the largest collection of varieties of breadfruit trees in the world, among other native, tropical and exotic botanical specimens.
At Bayhouse Hana, you'll enjoy all the wonders of the oceanside experience in complete comfort. We are on the east tip of Maui, our sunrises are magic and our evening afterglows are quite lengthy because they start before sunset, thanks to Haleakala, our resident mountain, 'home of the sun'. We get to see the sun going home for the night after a long day crossing the sky.
Looking out to sea, don't be surprised if you happen to spot a whale or two or an entire pod breaching, spouting and splashing just outside the bay; that would be between October and March. Or you may spot a sea turtle cruising along the shoreline scouring the rocks for their favorite seaweed.
If you're not a visual type, just kick back and enjoy the sounds and smells of the peaceful Pacific.

William Chang and Anita Bisquera-Chang are the owners/managers of Bayhouse Hana. They are artist-farmers residing in the community. Bayhouse Hana is a family project that was started in the mid 70s; Bill has added some features and renovated the building in recent years.
Bayhouse Hana was originally built in 1975, one of the first vacation rentals in the community. It is built on family land that was acquired some four generations back. The Iwa Suite on the ground level has been completely renovated and placed back into service. The second floor is currently being renovated; as Bill does this work only when there are no guests in residence, we don't have a completion date scheduled for the upstairs unit. In the meantime, only family and friends use the unit upstairs.
The location of Bayhouse Hana is ideal for its purpose. The views are fabulous and the setting is so peaceful... and you don't have far to go for anything. That is why we say it's away from it all and in the middle of things at the same time; you get the best of both.
At Bayhouse Hana you're in the middle of town and away from it all at the same time. The suite focuses on the ocean views and sounds; the house is designed to shield you from the road traffic and neighboring dwellings, it's very private but it's not isolated. You are in walking distance to all the amenities of the central town area, stores, post office, community center, snack shop, restaurant and more. The sandy beach at Hana Bay is just a short stroll down the road. Most community events are held either at the Community Hall at the Bay or in the Ball Park next to the Community Center just up the hill; both a short wall away.
When we pulled up we thought we were at the wrong place, from the road it looked like the entire place was under construction, but it turns out the second floor is under construction and this did not impact our stay at all. The home has beautiful large windows spanning the width and overlooking the ocean. Listening to the waves crashing is a real joy. The home is simple, but appears to be very clean. They have all of the necessities as far as cooking supplies, linens, towels, etc., and a few extra touches. I noticed some bugs in the kitchen. I think they are called invisible bugs? They seem to be common in Maui. The owner and his wife do not use any insect repellent which is probably a good thing considering the close proximity to the ocean. I think the bugs are basically harmless. In summary the place is not fancy, but it is very clean and quite suitable overlooking the ocean and within walking distance of the beach. This is a fine place to stay during your Hana adventure.
PROS: The location of the place is absolutely beautiful. The windows were huge and you could really take in the beach front view. The house was really big and I think it's best suited for families with children. The owner was very accommodating and very helpful with places to go and eat.
CONS: I found the place a bit dusty and the bed was too soft and I didn't get a comfortable night sleep.
This place made our overnight Hana stay nice. It was clean, comfortable and cozy. The carport was nice since it was raining during our stay in Hana. It is situation in a great location, close enough to all the important things, yet far enough away. The view of the Hana Bay from the front windows was beautiful. They had all the dishes and towels one would need, thanks for a great stay
This was a great place for our family of four (mom, dad and daughters 18 and 20). When we first drove up we were a bit concerned because you drive into the garage and can not see the view--just a construction project underway. But when we got into the house it was beautiful--right above the beach with fabulous view windows. You could hear the waves crashing and see the sunrise from the front room. There was plenty of room--a bedroom for the parents and 2 twin beds for the girls off of the main room. The kitchen was fully supplied with all we needed and we were able to barbecue dinner on the little lawn. The owner was very prompt in meeting us. There was a great park and beach in walking distance and lots of other beautiful beaches a short drive away. Staying 2 nights was perfect because it allowed us a leisurely drive out and then a full day and morning in the area.
What a great location. We were able to walk to all of the activities in Hana. The sunrise from the rental was beautiful. Very peaceful. The owner was very helpful and accommodating.
We decided to stay over in Hana after driving the road so we could relax a bit before going back again. The place was like a quaint beachhouse. The upper level is still under construction so the exterior doesn't look like much but the unit we rented was nice. The place was clean and offered all the necessary items. There were five of us and we managed with the dish settings for four. The owner was very helpful and friendly. The location was right on the ocean so at night I thought I was in a storm as the sound the waves made crashing against the shore was incredible. We really enjoyed our stay and would stay again perhaps longer so we could tour the area a little more as there is so much to see. We left the next morning so didn't look at any of the nearby restaurants or attractions. There was a beach right down from the place though which we walked on. I would definately recommend this unit to people who aren't expecting fancy accomodations. This is comfortable, clean and provides all the necessities. Pictures are accurate as is the description. The owner was very accomodating by switching our reservation the day of due to a high wind storm in the region when we were to be there. We rebooked for a couple days later which was wonderful. I really appreciated that.
