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.

WONDERFUL STAY AND PERFECT HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Gale and Michelle's rental and were so glad that we decided to spend two nights in Hana. Upon arriving, we were greeted by fresh banana bread and beautiful flowers. The cottage was centrally located, and it was easy to get to all the sights - Black Sand Beach, Red Sand Beach, Hamoa Beach, Seven Pools, and the Pipiwai Trail. Michelle was a fabulous host, who gave us great insider's advice about logistics and sights - both in Hana and throughout Maui! (Btw, if you are accident prone, you couldn't stay in a better place. Michelle is an EMT, and Gale is the Fire Chief.)

We love to cook, so we really appreciated the new appliances, utensils, and grill. Michelle was willing to provide us with any basic condiments and several non-basics that we forgot! We used the fresh basil from the garden to make an amazing macadamia nut pesto for dinner one night.

All in all, exactly what we were looking for when we went to Hana. Thanks again Gale and Michelle!

A NICE PROPERTY AND HOSTS

  • 4 of 5
The arrival procedure was effortless, and the cottage was great. Generally a great location, easily walkable to both the black rock and black sand beaches in Hana. Everything inside the house is quite modern, and it was well stocked with cooking equipment and seasoning/oil.

The only downside when we were there was traffic noise, though for the most part that's no fault of the owners. Hana Highway is, for some length of time, closed at this point in Hana, so *all* the Hana Highway traffic comes past the front door. Unfortunately this did make it unexpectedly hard to relax.

The property where the owners live, behind the cabin, also apparently has some other permanent tenants, and we experienced some early morning and late night noise of people driving up and down the gravel driveway. That really wasn't terrible, but just as an FYI to anyone who is looking for a very quiet experience.

Overall, I'd definitely stay here again, after making sure the Hana Highway detour was no longer in effect.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear that your stay wasn't as expected. Our goal is to make our guests visit as comfortable, enjoyable and memorable as possible. Yes, there are items that are beyond our control. The traffic on our road has increased because of a bridge repair that detoured all vehicles to our road. This repair should be complete by the end of July, 2014.

The traffic and noise from our permanent tenants will be coming to an end soon as well. They are usually very quiet, but regardless, noise is noise. We are converting that portion of the house to a vacation rental. We expect the tenants to move out by the end of August, 2014. We appreciate and desire quiet as well.

Lastly, we are planning to pave our gravel driveway in the near future to quiet the travel to and from the main house.

In closing, we are a new vacation rental operation. We do know what makes a visit better than others, such as cleanliness as well as quality items to use and comfort . We are committed to improving this operation as time pushes on. We will update our photos on our website as improvements are completed. We care whole heartedly for the well being and for the enjoyment that our guests experience.

Signed, Hana By The Bay

I WISH I COULD TAKE THIS COTTAGE HOME WITH US!

  • 5 of 5
This wonderful cottage is one of the most charming properties I have rented through VRBO. The grounds are well maintained and you can find bright, vibrant flowers, fresh bananas, and fragrant herbs growing all around the yard. Immediately, this gave us a welcoming feeling as we pulled into the driveway.

The kitchen was well-stocked with nice quality utensils and equipped with everything we needed in order to make each meal. Michelle also provided us with a delicious chocolate chip banana bread baked fresh from the bananas in her yard. With the kitchen and the front porch near each other, we had dinner on the front porch with a beautiful sunset as the back drop every night.

The bedroom has a bed with a beautiful bamboo frame and grandiose headboard which lends a sense of luxury and relaxation. The bathroom was bright, clean, and spacious. There is no AC and in the afternoon, we it did get very warm. However, we used the standing fan to help circulate the air. The nights were comfortable and breezy.

Michelle, the property owner, is gracious, friendly, responsive, and knowledgeable. She gave us useful information about Hana and the surrounding attractions. She also allowed us to use her beach equipment, which were all in great condition.


In summary, I highly recommend this property. Our vacation in Hana was positively memorable and this cottage played a key role. Thank you to Michelle and Gale for providing our family with such a great place to stay!

PERFECT! WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR AND MORE

  • 5 of 5
This little cottage what exactly what my wife my daughter and I had in mind when we decided to visit Hana. It had everything I expected but better in every sense; cleaner, newer and more comfortable than I expected. Michele and Gale (the owners) are the nicest most welcoming people you can imagine, they made us feel at home right away. One of the many nice things about this place was the amazing chocolate-chip banana bread the Michele baked for us; wow. Hana is magical and I almost don't want to write this review because I want it to stay that way; secluded, peaceful and wild. This is a special place I hope I can come back and visit soon.

SUPER

  • 5 of 5
We were so happy to find this beautiful cottage listing soon after it became available. Michelle and Gale have done a wonderful job of remodeling and furnishing the cottage. There is plenty of room with modern kitchen, comfortable living area and huge bathroom with storage area. The kitchen is well supplied with quality items and the bed and linens are quality too.
Michelle and Gale live right behind and were eager to greet us with flowers, yummy banana bread and pineapple popsicles. They are a delightful couple who have lived in Hana for a while and are an important part the community. We did not need any tips on Hana since our daughter lives there too, but I am sure they would have offered all kinds of helpful advice. We definitely have found the place to stay in Hana.
Our returnable deposit was processed very quickly too.
We loved the deck and BBQ where we cooked dinner. From there we could catch glimses of the ocean. If you have young children make sure they are old enough to manage the open deck.
We have certainly found the perfect place to stay in Hana.

CLEAN, WELL-EQUIPPED, GOOD VALUE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this cottage for 2 nights. It was clean and well-equipped, with pineapple slice "popsicles" and a banana cake, as well as a beautiful flower arrangement. It has some view, a nice bedroom and kitchen and is a great value for Hana. The owners live just above the cottage so they're friendly and very available, though we needed nothing. We'd recommend this cottage for a couple or a small family. The listing photo is accurate, showing the cottage and spacious lanai (with BBQ and dining table with umbrella) as well as private parking right in front.
