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.

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.

Excellent Host

  • 5 of 5
Our scheduled arrival date was the day before Hurricane Iselle was to hit the Big Island. Even before we asked, our host, Michelle already texted us to suggest that a visit to Hana would not be a good idea as she was monitoring the weather forecasts for us. When we spoke she fully agreed to return all of the funds sent to her without penalty. As luck would have it Iselle was not as bad as expected and there was a short window before the arrival of Hurricane Julio. As the people behind us also cancelled Michelle was able to accommodate us for a night. Wish we had the extra night as the place was perfect.
We arrived just as Michele and Gale were returning home. They were very warm and welcoming. We mentioned some of the things we wanted to do and Michelle came back with a map and directions. Because of the Hurricanes the surf was high and some of the places were dangerous so she got on the phone and called up her friend to get us an up to the moment report. She later came back with a bunch of just picked bananas from their yard. Her kindness, service and hospitality were instinctive.
The place itself was as nice as many of the hotels we’ve been in since it seemed like the place was brand new. The kitchen was full and had everything that one could possibly need, even down to the steak spice which we used in the barbecue which was very clean as well. The bathroom was spacious and fresh and the bed and pull out couch was very comfortable. The place has a library of Maui books as well as a library of DVDs which the kids watched when it got dark. The labels they have down make it beyond easy to use the TV, stereo and wi-fi internet. In short, they have thought about it all in a very detailed manner to make you feel at home and fully comfortable the moment you walk in.
The location is so close to the ocean that we fell asleep to the sound of the waves. By the time we were ready to leave Michelle already had a cheque ready for us to settle up for the originally cancelled dates.
We would not hesitate to stay there again the next time we are in Hana. The only regret would be we did not stay longer.

Everything we wanted and more.

  • 5 of 5
Michelle and Gale were the kindest of hosts. Willing to answer all of our questions about the area and happy to "talk story" with us even when they might have had things to do. Our son who was 8, had a great time hunting for geckos and hanging with Roxie, Gale and Michelle's sweet dog. Even though the house sits back from the beach you can easily see Hana Bay and watch the changing of the tides. My mornings were spent with a cup of coffee enjoying the spacious lanai and looking out to sea. The grassy area in the front of the house is great for stretching after a run and there is a beach just across the street that you can walk to if you like.

The house itself was perfect for us and had more amenities than I realized. The bathroom was huge and we were big fans of the shower which is very spacious. The kitchen is great and still feels brand new. Windows are located to allow for the ocean breeze to sweep through the house and the rustle of the palm trees outside the bedroom are a wonderful sound to fall a sleep to. The ceiling fans were a lovely way to cool down the house at the end of the day and the bamboo flooring through out looks great. I was impressed with the house.

We stopped at Costco on the way into Hana to buy some gear but we really didn't need to, the cottage comes equipped with many of your day trip needs including plenty of beach towels, 2 boogie boards, an upright paddle board (with straps to mount it to your car), a cooler, beach chairs, even 2 sets of snorkeling gear. There are even a washer and dryer for after the day trips.

The house is located walking distance to the Hana Bay and a short drive to all the local beaches. Gale and Michelle were very helpful describing the spots worth seeing and the places worth eating.

We plan to stay at Hana by the Bay again and are excited that Michelle and Gale plan to open a bed and breakfast behind the cottage soon so we can bring even more people with us next trip.

We wish we was there now. It was a great trip.

We arrived in beautiful Hana to find an immaculate home with a gracious owner, right across the street from Hana Bay. The house was adorable, and spotless. The pictures are EXACTLTY what you get, but they can't describe all the extras that go along with renting this property. The kitchen was probably better stocked than my own kitchen. Everything worked and was in perfect condition. The owner, Michele, has obviously put a lot of thought and care into this home. There were high end toiletries in the bathroom, even family sized bottles of shampoo, conditioner, shower gel, and lotion!! Tons of bath towels, along with beach towels. There is snorkeling gear, beach chairs, body boards, and even a long board with paddles for our use. There is a gas grill. There are ceiling fans in the living room, and bedroom, along with a free standing fan. There are 2 televisions, along with a DVD player and a nice selection of DVDs. The queen sized bed is extremely comfortable!! My girls were going to sleep together on the sofa bed, but didn't have to when we found a nice air mattress with a built in pump in the closet! There are Maui and Hana travel books, along with wifi, satellite dish, and directions clearly placed so you can utilize everything. When I asked Michele where we could eat, she brought over some fresh caught fish that she purchased from a local fisherman. I grilled it and it was awesome! There is fresh coffee beans and a grinder to grind them in. When my husband mentioned that we could not find coffee filters, she went to the store and brought them to us within 15 minutes!! (We later found them in a drawer, which we had obviously overlooked!) And although Michele was there to lend a hand at these times, we were still very much left to enjoy our time in Hana with our family. She did not make us feel as if we were staying in her home. I can't possibly remember all of the thoughtful touches that have gone into making this a perfect vacation rental home. However, I do know that there is NO WAY you would receive these amenities or personalized service at the highest end hotel, and that definitely includes Hana's only high end hotel, Travaasa.

A cozy, clean, wonderfully appointed place to stay for Hana adventures!

We arrived in Hana a little stressed about 1 hour prior to the landfall of Tropical Storm Wali. We were so pleasantly surprised to find that Michele had prepared fresh banana bread for us and Gale brought over a huge (HUGE) beautiful bouquet of tropical flowers, to greet us and make sure we arrived safely and didn't need anything else. Michele and Gale are so thoughtful, they even called us prior to the storm to warn us and make sure we'd be to Hana in time. I cannot recommend this little cottage enough. The house is newly remodeled with new, high quality appliances, beautiful bamboo flooring, fantastic fixtures, soft luxurious bedding, also all the creature comforts like a flat-screen tv, dvd/blu-ray, wifi, etc. They've thought of everything, even the shampoo and conditioner and soaps are high-end. There are quality beach supplies, boogie boards, and a SUP for use (unfortunately Wali did not allow us to do much beach fun or swimming so we didn't get to use any of it). We did take advantage of the DVD collection and the board games! :) There is no A/C and it was hot muggy being stuck indoors much of the time we were there but that was due to the storm, otherwise I don't think you'd need the A/C as the cottage is across from the beach and the windows open would make it breezy and cool. Even though the storm prevented us from enjoying Hana to it's potential, the cottage at Hana Bay made our stay memorable and fun! Thank you Michele and Gale for sharing this wonderful little house! Our family loved it and really appreciated the thoughtful details and your kindness during our stay. We'll be back someday! :)
