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)

What makes this cottage unique

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!

There is Sunbathing - Golf - Tennis - Relaxing - Shopping - Sightseeing - Local grinds - Unwinding - Whale watching - Kayaking - Sailing - Boating - Parailing - Shelling - Sunset watching - Zip line - Swimming - Snorkeling/Diving - Surfing - Windsurfing - Biking - Wildlife - Hunting - Viewing - Hiking - Fishing - Fitness Center/Gym - Health/Beauty Spa - Basketball Court - Antiquing - Cinemas/Movie Theaters - Live Theater - Fine dining - Museums - Horseshoes - Miniature golf - Horseback Riding - Beach volleyball and much more!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We would like to say "Mahalo" for your hospitality during our stay at the cottage. This is our second return to the beautiful island of Maui. This beautiful and quaint cottage had everything and more than we could possibly need to assist in making our stay in Maui enjoyable. Information posted online is very accurate...We give it 5 out of 5 Stars Rating. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable time, it was like an oasis...just exactly what we needed. We decided this time to stay within the local community, rather than a condo or hotel in the midst of all the hustle and bustle. The grounds were very well maintained and quiet, safe and secure, and the cottage was exceptionally clean! We have zero complaints.



Everything pertaining to outdoor activities, the beach, the shops, food stores/restaurants, etc....was just around the corner, or within a few minutes drive away. Our travels around the island were made easy due to the cottage's central location. We did various activities ranging from travelling the Road to Hana (Stopping for a fresh cold coconut or local fruit/food on the way), visited the Haleakala Summit and watched the beautiful sunset, visited the Aquarium and Historical Sites throughout, did a combination of eating out and cooking in the cottage, and even hopped over to Lanai for the day on the Maui-Lanai Ferry.



We look forward to future stays!! We will definitely recommend your place to our family and friends. Maui is such a beautiful island.

A hidden gem

  • 5 of 5

Great little cottage in a quiet peaceful neighborhood. Sarah and her hubby were wonderful hosts. They even went out of there way to share some unique events that were happening with us! We slept very well it was like a little cave in the bedroom couldn't hear a thing unless you opened windows. The blinds kept the intense light out and allowed us to rise as we chose! The property is located near some of the islands best eateries and beaches! We will be back! Thank you guys soo much! Mahalo!

Everything you need

Really happy with the place. Definitely need a car to get around but loved staying in a little house. The hosts have been very generous in what they provide for use as guests, and lovely people in every dealing with them.

Needs Improving

  • 3 of 5

The hosts were very accommodating and friendly,the cottage needed updating and could have been a bit cleaner it was noisy at times due to nearby neighbours which was beyond the control of the owners but overall we enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: I’m sorry, it seems this trip started off wrong for you with the loss of your luggage, that we help you retrieve in a day. It’s sad you didn’t spend much time at the nearby beaches or go adventuring around this beautiful island,instead you chose to stay in and experienced the sounds of the neighborhood. I know the timing of the gardeners' may conflict with your stay but most of our guest are away when they arrive.

Relaxing and Enjoyable Time in Kihei

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Sarah and Dan's cottage for 2 weeks and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Everything you needed was included at the cottage, including air conditioning in the bedroom and main living area. The neighborhood was quiet and it's only a short walk from the local beach/park, where we would watch the sun set on most evenings. The cottage is centrally located in the town of Kihei, which is on the "drier" side of Maui, meaning that while still tropical, you won't likely get any rain while there (which is pleasant). Access to stores and the main highways to get to other places and activities are only a short hop down the road. There's even a covered car port for your rental car right next to the cottage.

If you're looking for a peaceful, relaxing time at a cute little condo in Maui, I would highly recommend Sarah and Dan's cottage!

Sarah & Dan were THE best with a wonderful ohana space & personal touches you would only find here.

  • 5 of 5

The ohana was nice, spacious, clean and with two AC units, cool on the warmest days. The personal touches of flowers in the dining and bath were very nice but the delivery of mangoes ripe off the tree put it over the top! I haven't been home during mango season for about six years so to have it for breakfast along with papaya was a treat in itself. The place is stocked and fully prepared for snorkeling, boogie boarding, sunbathing and other beach activities. The activities book provides any info you need to navigate the area with suggestions on where to shop or visit. Nice yard, patio and barbecue area to hangout and talk story plus they can prepare a special luau for you with prior notice. Great people, nice area in Kihei, VERY reasonable and close to everything you need. Ha'le Kanakala will not disappoint!
