Why Sarah & Dan chose Maui

What makes our vacation cottage 'hale' so special and unique? The KanaKala Pacific Ohana hale is located in the sunny bay side city of Kihei. Our rental lies at the base of the majestic Haleakala Volcano, the world's largest dormant volcano, and at the shores of beautiful white sandy beaches of the blue Pacific waters. Kihei is a fast growing small island community. It lays on the seashore of the largest bay (Ma'alaea). The Hawaiian islands are the furthest islands from any land mass in the world. Maui has been voted the best island in the world year after year! All this and being surrounded by 'Aloha' makes this place 'Maui...No ka 'oi' (Maui is the best)

We will share our knowledge and 'local insider secrets' about Maui with you! Ask us about where to eat, where to shop, and what is the best stuff to do!

Great cottage with everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

Sarah and Dan have a lovely cottage. Everything you might need while on vacation is available. Everything was clean and so well organized.

They had guidebooks and coupons and were available to answer questions and give recommendations.

The cottage is a great size, large king bed, super clean bathroom, well kept and maintained and rates are economical. The location is central, minutes from a great beach park and town center. It's quite and peaceful and very private.

I would highly recommend this home.

Very nice rental for privacy and convenience

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our rental in Maui. The location in Kihei gave us easy access to everything and yet we were in a quiet neighborhood. Well, quiet except for an occasional rooster crowing. The apartment was clean and well appointed. The nice kitchenette was well stocked with dishes and appliances. Adjacent to the carport was a large storage room with many beach items we could use -snorkels, floats, grass mats, etc. We were furnished with plenty of clean bathroom towels and beach towels. Hair dryer was included. Sarah and Dan were very gracious and helpful. They even got our towels off the line when it started raining and we hadn't made it back yet!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking the time to write a review. Yes, the roosters in the neighborhood don't know day or night, and continuously crow. The fact that we don't have a clothes dryer, but rely on the balmy air to dry them, does pose a problem when it rains; which it seldom does in Kihei. Our winter, December thru February may bring most rain for the year. But, don't hold me on that, it changes from time to time. Glad you had a nice time on our islands, looking forward to having you back again.

Excellent Value

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our five night stay in this cottage. It is clean and comfortable. The pictures are accurate and so is the description. The kitchen was extremely well appointed and had pretty much everything one would need to cook quite an elaborate meal. The AC in the bedroom was very efficient. The living room is small but adequate - who spends their sunny vacation indoors anyway?

The yard area is nicely kept. There are two sun beds and a BBQ on the patio (we did not use the latter).

It was useful to have all the equipment for a day at the beach (chairs, boogie boards, cooler etc)

Sarah and Dan were pleasant and helpful. Should we return to Maui we would consider staying here again. Thank you to our hosts.

The perfect cottage & and a warm ALOHA

  • 5 of 5

We just simply had a wonderful stay at Hale Kanakala. The cottage is so heartfully maintained and offers everything you need. The garden offers a large bbq area and a big mango tree offers the shade. All the gorgeous beaches are close and there are boogie boards, cooler, snorkle gear, beach chairs and much more to use. Sarah & Dan are wonderful hosts, they made us feel very comfortable during our stay. From the bottom of our hearts: Thank you Sarah & Dan for your warm ALOHA and for this unforgettable experience in Maui🌴❤️😀! We are sad to leave now but do hope to be back one day! Our best, Bettina & Family
