The only was to enjoy Hana.

I always lik to stay a few days in Hana when I vacation in Maui. The little cottage we've stayed at in the past is no longer for rent, so I went looking and found this sweet little spot. It is a studio, so not a lot of room, but my mother and I were comfortable here for a two night stay. As others have commented, the bed was comfortable and that was nice. We had just spent seven nights in a lovely Kehei two bedroom condo that was wonderful except the beds. So despite the fact that I was sharing a king size bed with my sleep talking 76 year old mother, I slept better than I had the previous week.
The photos do a pretty good job of showing the inside of the cottage, but the lanai and view were much better than I expected from the photos. Really, if it's not fogged in, it's a nice view of the ocean.
The cottage is about five miles outside Hana, a little further out than I find ideal, but doable. It's also, I believe, in the rainiest part of the Hana side. We were there when the third hurricane/tropical storm was passing by and had two nights of pounding rain with a day of socked in weather. However, once we drove further into Hana the sun was out.
It is of course in a rain forest, and close to the ocean which means it's a beach cottage that has some typical wear and tear and lots of fun geckos on the windows at night! It was clean, with a lot of beautiful flowers (and some up reachable bananas) all around. You drive by one house as you head up the driveway and there is another one very close by, however since we were out exploring all day we never saw the folks.
Since you're staying so close to Hana be sure to do the two mile uphill hike at the Ohe'o Gulch hiking through the bamboo forest is magical. The food stand in Hana Bay was a great little spot for some yummy food, my mom swore the fish & chips were the best ever. Heading over to the red sand beach is pretty spectacular, what a great place to spend the afternoon. Parking near the field can be difficult to come by and I saw the police ticketing cars parked facing the wrong direction, so be thoughtful.
I love spending some relaxing time in Hana, and this little hideaway is a great spot for a home base.

Beautiful, cozy place!

We absolutely loved staying here! We were extremely impressed by how cute and clean the house was. It's even better in real life than it is in photos. Everything was new looking and comfortable. The bed is large, well made and felt like a luxury hotel bed. The entrance to the house is a true jungle experience. The front door peaks out from beautiful jungle plants. We were lucky to have nice weather while we were there, too, so we could really enjoy our time on the big lanai. The stream is right nearby and it's so quiet up there except for the sound of the water. The kitchen had all the utensils and cookware we needed to whip up two great dinners while we stayed there and the cottage even had a cable TV and Wi-Fi - which we did not expect and it was just lovely (especially with NFL playoffs going on). :)

There is a delicious honor stand at the bottom of the hill selling yummy banana bread, too! Our only visible neighbour was Kemo in the front house, and he was extremely friendly and welcoming.

I would absolutely go back here. We have no complaints at all! We spent the first 2 weeks of our Maui trip in Kehei, which is lovely, but this trip to Hana was absolutely the most memorable. Next time we come, we'll be spending a much longer time here!

You can't beat the price of this place either. I'm afraid to recommend it too highly, because someone else might book it when we want to go back! :) All in all, you will love this rental. Thank you for everything, Amanda! Hope to see you again soon!
