Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

You drive some two hours on the Hana Highway, one of the USA’s most renowned roads, crossing about sixty bridges as you wind along the scenic crags of Haleakala marveling at the waterfalls and looking down on the wide ocean. This spectacular journey takes you to the best place in the world, in our view. Our beaches—there are six of them, all quite different—are never crowded, our ocean and mountain views are everywhere superb, our people delightful, our rain forest is fascinating and our climate perfect. The spiritual feeling of old Hawai’i is hard to find nowadays, yet it permeates Hana, far from tourist hordes. But, if you are looking for a happy place to stay in Hana, you probably know all that already; and that a day trip is not enough. So here’s why to ring us to check out Kolea Cottage as your comfortable, competitively priced, Hana base for a few days or weeks.

Kolea, timber-built in 2003, (permit t20120005) is located a mile from Hana's tiny airport on the lower slopes of the 10,000 foot Mount Haleakala, surrounded by lawn carved out of the forest in a secluded corner of our fruit farm. Our 11-acre estate is bursting with flowers, fruit trees and tropical plants of many sorts. Guests are welcome to fruit from our trees, flowers from the garden and books from our library to read while listening to CDs of Hana musicians or the dawn and dusk bird chorus, enjoying the ocean view from the lanai.

Kolea’s principal bedroom has a queen bed, the second bedroom twin beds or king bed. Soft linen and towels are provided. Bathroom with tub. Covered lanai with seating. In total, 1,200 sq ft of comfortable home. The kitchen area, which has oven, microwave, blender, large fridge-freezer, lovely granite worktops and plenty of storage, is fully equipped with cooking and dining things. The washer and drier are in a closet off the lanai. Kolea has Time Warner cable connected to a 32” flat-screen color TV, CD/DVD player, telephone, internet and wi-fi. Any special requirements—give us a call and we will do our best.

One warning. Hana is not suitable for those who have a bug phobia. We live in a rainforest, and though it's fully screened in some bugs and geccos penetrate even the best screening.

We provide beach towels, and we can guide you on the eating possibilities, hiking and many things to do around Hana, including special local events which are often not much publicized. None are more than a short drive away.

Kolea Cottage is named for the beautiful bird that owns the cottage lawn, otherwise known as the Hawaiian golden plover. You may meet her if you are here in the right season, for this remarkable navigator puts on her best plumage and departs in the spring to fly 3,000 miles across the ocean for a summer in Alaska, where she raises a family before returning accurately to our yard in the fall.

Idyllic cottage

  • 5 of 5

Inviting, lovely cottage in the round (similar to a yurt) which was clean and bright, on a beautiful piece of land in a slice of heaven in northeast Maui. We only stayed a night (very sadly for us) but felt very at home in a well-equipped kitchen with a big island and nice eating space and a lovely front porch for drinking coffee in the morning. You can really hear the rain and the nature outside (birds, insects) through the vents in the place, but this was not a downside for me - just for people who are light sleepers to keep in mind. I thought the screens kept out most of the insects, so this was also not an issue. The owners were around and were very friendly; gave us some local recommendations that were good. I would definitely stay here again, and for longer, to better explore this beautiful part of the island. A great find!

Perfect

This little 2BR 1BA cottage was exactly what we needed for our visit to Hana. Owners were responsible and communicative. Cottage was clean and conveniently located. Definitely close to nature - we saw a lot of geckos, one inside!

What a wonderful find on the Hana Road!

  • 5 of 5

This home is well cared for and very clean. The host provided us with some necessities that we forgot to bring. The grounds are well kept and location is nice. We loved sitting on the lanai in the evenings. Recommend!

Hana house

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house! Loved the location, the landscaping was so tropical and lush. It was nice to have a place to stop on the Hana highway after an all day drive. We do wish the amenities were a little better for the price. The pillows could be upgraded and a few more towels. We noticed a basket of wet towels in the laundry room, don't know if they were forgotten or? Also, the lights were out on the front porch and all the solar lights on the path going up to the house were burned out, and it is very dark there, which is fine, but simple solar lighting would help a lot! We loved meeting Andrew, the owner, he was very nice and brought us some beautiful fresh fruit. A wonderful touch was the fresh tropical flowers in a vase. Thank you.

Great place to stay and explore the best part of the island!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week in this comfortable home on beautiful grounds in Hana. What a great place to stay to explore all of the wonderful things Hana has to offer. The home is private, quiet, and offers a horizon ocean view. Evenings on the porch were very relaxing and offered us the best star gazing we have ever experienced! The owners were very accommodating and welcoming. We spent our days exploring, hiking, and taking in the breathtaking views all around. The provided description of the property is very accurate. Would defiantly recommend this property and hope to be back someday!

Great Place to Stay in Hana

  • 5 of 5

Grounds very well kept. Directions to property very clearly explained. House was very clean and impressive. Beds need updating and could be firmer. Owners were very easy to contact with questions. Overall a great experience and would stay there again. Loved the satellite TV.
