NOW WITH AIR CONDITIONING. Hana By The Bay is a one bedroom cottage with all the fixings to make your stay in Hana a very memorable one. We offer the quiet of a village experience and the connection to the outside world if you chose; utilizing our WiFi, Cable, and Cell service.
The queen size bed is a beautiful tropical cabana style bed. This is one of Hana's newest listings
for a vacation rental.
We are located within walking distance to the Annual East Maui Taro Festival, the finish line of the infamous Hana Relay, our quaint little town center, and the beach at Hana Bay.
Hana Bay is a popular location for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, picnics, paddle boarding, luau's, outrigger canoe races, sunbathing and relaxing. Helene
Hall (our community center) hosts small concerts, church meetings, and many other public gatherings.
Hana By The Bay is Gale and Michele Notestone. We both live and work in Hana. Michele is a paramedic and Gale is Hana's Resident Fire Captain. They have both lived in Hana over 10 years and will live no other place. We are very thankful to live here and wish to share the beauty with others.
Gale and Michele Notestone purchased this cottage in 2006
Hana is has the true feeling of a small town community. It is a wonderful feeling to go to the stores, the post office, the bank, the gas station, etc. and you know everybody by name, and they know you. As secluded as Hana is, the community relies on one another for assistance. One of the true meanings of Aloha is 'to give.' When you do, time
and time again, the return is often abundant. It warms your heart.
THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW RENTALS IN HANA THAT HAS A/C. There are countless benefits. Additional to what was described above, Hana looks to the East. There is nothing upwind of you but the beautiful blue Pacific. The air is very clean, clear and fresh. Hawaii's trade winds split at the point of Hana, Kauiki Head. From the front of your cottage, you will see the lighthouse there, blinking at you throughout the night.
Another great thing about Hana is you can see the sun and the moon rise from the oceans horizon. This is spectacular.
Staying in Hana when there is more than half a moon is a wondrous time to visit. Full moon is best. If you don't catch the moon, the stars will 'fill the bill'. Because Hana has very little 'city lights', the stars are easily seen. The North Star and Big Dipper await your visit.
My husband and I just spent 12 days on Maui, and spent 3 of them up in Hana where we stayed at Hana by the Bay cottage, and we were blown away! Not only was it the cleanest VRBO we have ever encountered, it was the cutest and most well appointed one as well. The location was fantastic! The kitchen was so well stocked I could have baked a cake or cookies if I had wanted to! :) We were thrilled to have a chance to spend time hiking the waterfalls and checking out the beaches, all of which are next to impossible if you just drive up to Hana for the day. My husband's new favorite beach is Hamoa beach as he loves to body surf and it is short drive away from the cottage. Additionally, I highly encourage everyone to stop at the fruit stands if you drive up to the waterfalls, as the locals are great to talk to, and you can't get better deals on fresh fruit!
We have already decided we will be back to Hana by the Bay Cottage with Michelle and Gale! One last note, the fresh chocolate chip banana bread was amazing and I need the recipe!
Hana by the Bay was exactly what my family and I were looking for. The cottage was comfortable, extremely clean and better stocked than our own house! The deck serves as the focal point of the cottage, my wife and I spending hours at night listening to the waves and enjoying the quiet.
It's location was perfect, an easy walk to the town beach, stores and a quick drive to Hamoa, Koki beaches and Haleakala park.
In short, the owners have spent a lot of time and effort equipping Hanna by the Bay with everything a traveler would need to relaxi and enjoy their stay. As an aside (and yet it goes to show their hospitality) upon arrival we were treated with a loaf of chocolate chip banana bread complete with bananas grown in front of the cottage. My wife spent the rest of our stay hunting down banana bread stands on the Hana highway looking for better. She couldn't.
We had an amazing stay in Hana at Michelle and Gale's cottage. The accommodations were even better than pictured. The house was immaculate and they provided soaps, hairdryer etc that are always nice touches when you're traveling.
It was a perfect size for two people who love to get away and like a bit more space to move around than a cramped hotel room. The location is close to everything (obviously, Hana is tiny) and had a little view of the ocean. If we'd been there during nicer weather, we definitely would have used the grill on the deck. :)
We spent 4 days here and were glad we did. Fantastic accommodation, brand new facilities, super locale and lots to do. Quiet, nice views, natural. We've stayed in lots of vrbo and this is definitely one of the best. Left Kahului comfortably at ~1030am so that the traffic for the "to Hana and back in one day" crowd was all ahead of us. Arrived 430 at a foodie equipped kitchen allowed us to cook to our heart's content. Michele is very welcoming. Lovely deck for sitting out. Great for excursions in both directions.
My wife and I wanted to celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary somewhere special and knew we wanted to be away from the touristy places. Hana was absolutely incredible as was the cottage we stayed in. Gale and Michele clearly take pride in making sure your experience in this wonderful little town is amazing. The cottage is immaculate and very homey and comfortable. It was perfect for us. Michele was super helpful and patient with all my questions before we arrived and Gale and Roxy made sure to stop by to say hi and a little chat while we were there. I can't say enough great things about this place. If you're looking for an awesome place to stay in Maui, check out this little gem. We will be back!!
This was the best kept vacation rental that I have ever stayed in. Michele keeps it up as if it were her own home, not a rental. It is so clean, paint looks fresh with no wear, chips or fingerprints anywhere, and the furniture looks new and not like somebody's cast offs. When the other reviewers say it is well stocked they are understating what Michele has done. Stating she has cooking oil sounds like there is vegetable oil available (which there was) but doesn't mention that there are 2-3 infused oils as well. The shampoo/conditioner/lotion are spa type products not just generic brands. It is all the little touches that make this such an exceptional place to stay. After seeing the attention to detail that Michele puts into her place I was not surprised to locate a fire evacuation route. Hana is a great place to visit and this is an exceptional place to stay.
Lots of fresh fruit stands and freshly baked banana bread in the area. Also, a variety of great eateries that are not listed in the yellow pages.
