Hana, Maui is the place to get away from it all! It is Paradise found, unspoiled by tourism and offers incredible beauty everywhere you look. With the Pacific Ocean on one side and bordered by lush mountain peaks, you will feel the magic of this tropical retreat. Imagine sitting on your private Lanai and gazing out at the ever changing surf. On days when the surf is up be entertained by some of the best surfers in the state. On calmer days watch the stand up paddle boarders and bogie boarders. However the best entertainment is during the Winter Season when the whales appear (binoculars provided for best viewing). If hiking is you passion there are three incredible hikes right outside your front door, or drive 7 miles to Oheo Gulch (7 Sacred Pools) and hike through the bamboo forest up to the 400 Foot drop Waimuku Falls. Our Hamoa Beach Cottage is ideal for just relaxing, cooking (gourmet kitchen and gas barbecue grill) and outdoor dining. This is Paradise Found!

Adventures in Paradise!: If you ever dreamed of a remote tropical place situated gazing out the blue-green Pacific Ocean then the Hamoa Beach Cottage will fill this vision. Breathtaking views abound everywhere and if love to hike then you came to the right location. Just outside your door are three hikes to enjoy, no need to even get into your car. The quaint town of Hana is just two miles away and there is a wonderful trail, off the main road through rolling hills with panoramic views of the ocean every step on the way. If you only have one day then the must-do hike is just a short 7 mile drive from the Cottage, located at the Haleakala National Forest, know as the Seven Sacred Pools. Get an early start to avoid the crowds and take the one trail head up to the tallest waterfall you can hike to on Maui, the 400 ft drop Waimuku Falls. Meander through bamboo forests that is so dense and if it is windy it sounds like a symphony of wind chimes. This is a once in a lifetime experience not to be missed!

Eco tourism abounds!: Hana is known for it's beauty and isolation and eco tourism abounds. We have wonderful activities for everyone to enjoy including numerous cultural events. If you love kayaking, Kevin will take you out to a pristine colorful reef where you can snorkel and perhaps catch a glimpse of a sea turtle. Even if you don't get wet the beauty of seeing Hana town from the bay is breathtaking. There are two horseback riding stables in the Hana area and one is guided by locals who knows his history and explains the plants and animals and also the Hawaiian culture during this ride. More into relaxing, Hana has incredible massage therapists available that offer a wide variety of massages, including the Hawaiian Lomilomi. There are also cave tours, botanical gardens, motorized hang gliding, regular air gliding, an art gallery featuring local artist and many of the Hana artists also do private showings in their homes, historical sites and a small museum. So much to see and enjoy in the Hana area

For the love of food!: If one of the things you love to do on vacation is eat then Hana is a unique area as it has so much to offer in the way of food! We don't have McDonald's or Starbucks, but we do have our own Hawaiian version of fast food. All along the Hana Highway you will find farmer's markets, little stands that will sell all that they have grown. Most will offer free samples of some of the most exotic fruits and vegetables you have tried, including breadfruit, sour sap, low acid pineapples, coconuts, lychee, rambutan, jackfruit, etc. Many of the stands offer fresh homemade banana or macnut breads or try some homemade coconut ice cream. There are also Thai food, Chinese food, local plate lunch barbecue (meat, mac salad, 2 scoops rice) pasta, vegetarian, hamburger, and numerous other vendors. If you are lucky and the fisherman are catching, they will filet a beautiful piece of fish for your evening meal and the two general stores in town carry fresh local beef. You won't go hungry in Hana!

We’ve visited Hāna a few times and this is by far the best stay we’ve had.

Sandi sent us an amazing and informative welcome packet prior to our arrival. Her attention to detail exceeded our expectations. The plantation-style cottage is postcard perfect. It was fully stocked and impeccably decorated with a ton of Hawaiian charm. The oceanfront location cannot be beat! Hamoa Beach is truly magical. We used the gas grill most evenings as dinner options are limited (and not the best) in Hāna. The tiki torches by the grill are lit every evening at sunset. Nice touch! I highly recommend having lunch at Thai Food by Pranee, located behind the Travassa Hotel. We typically bring a cooler of groceries to save money. The Hāna Ranch Store is generally well-stocked but tends to be pricey. We love visiting the Laulima Farm Stand for exotic fruits and freshly roasted coffee. It’s located on Hāna Highway just about a mile past the Haleakala National Park. It’s only a 20 minute drive from the cottage. We stayed four nights and would’ve extended if it had been available. Thank you Sandi & Dan for a true ALOHA experience! We’ll be back!

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon the cottage online looking for a peaceful place to stay in Hana. We couldn't have asked for more.

Private, beach front, lovely hosts and well appointed interiors.

We can't can't wait to get back to this place! The views are amazing!

This is the best property in Hana. You can sit on the porch and watch the surfers or just gaze at the sea. It's a 60 second walk to Hamoa Beach, one of the finest beaches in the world. There are many dinning options within a few minutes drive or the unit has a fully equipped kitchen. The area has many places to explore and is "simply the best".

Our favorite place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Hana Oceanfront cottages provide the best of everything: wonderful location across from one of Maui’s most beautiful beaches and superb accommodations with everything you need. We have stayed at the oceanfront cottage each year for many years, and the only way we can leave is to promise ourselves we will come again in 12 months. If you are looking for a fabulous vacation rental in one of Hawaii’s most beautiful and relaxing locations, look no further. Thanks Sandi and Dan for sharing your slice of heavenly Hana with us.

Perfect Place For a Quiet Vacation

  • 5 of 5

WE THINK THE HANA OCEANFRONT COTTAGES ARE AS CLOSE TO HEAVEN AS YOU CAN GET WITHOUT EXPERIENCING THE GRIM REAPER! We have stayed there five times over the past several years and loved it every time. It is our favorite place to stay. The single bedroom cottage built by Sandi and Dan is located overlooking Hamoa Bay with a breathtaking view. You can look to the left, to the right and straight ahead and see the ocean, Hamoa Beach is just a few steps away where there is great surfing when the ocean is rough and wonderful swimming when it is calm. The cottage itself is perfect for a couple and has a well-equipped gourmet kitchen and an outside grill. Morning coffee on the porch or evening star gazing are very special here. This is a great place to read, just be quiet or enjoy the peacefulness of the surrounding garden. It really is the best getaway spot in the world!

We always stock up at COSTCO and/or Whole Foods before we make the trek over the Hana Highway. The road is loaded with an amazing number of curves, small bridges and beautiful waterfalls. Plenty of time should be taken to enjoy the trip both over and back from Kahalui. While the Road to Hana is like nothing else, the Hana Oceanfront Cottage is like arriving at the end of a rainbow.

STRH Permit # T2014/0001 & TAT #2080819200-01 Hana Oceanfront Cottages is one of the few fully licensed vacation rentals that is located at Hoama Beach and a short walk to another spectacular beach named Koki and is oceanfront. Hana is located on the Easterly side of Maui in a very remote little community and our two accommodations are just two miles from the charming town of Hana. We are on a small rural road, called Haneo'o that does a loop up to the main Hana Highway, and is used mainly for beach goers during the day yet in the morning and evening it is very peaceful and quiet. Hana is perfect for anyone who loves the out of doors, hiking in natural tropical settings, swimming at secluded beaches and under waterfalls, exploring, botanical gardens and historic sites of Hawaii. Breathtaking views of lush mountains are the backdrop of this area along with the contrast of the blue-green Pacific ocean. It is one of the last places on the islands that has not been touched with commercialism and is the 'True Hawaiian Experience'!

Other Activities: kayaking, cave tours, ultra-lite flying, botanical gardens, Eco tours, historic sites
