Hāna House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Aloha! Welcome to Bayhouse Hana. Our one-bedroom 'Iwa Suite', with eight hundred thirty two square feet of floor space, overlooks beautiful Hana Bay. There is a queen size bed in the bedroom; the bathroom is accessible through the bedroom. A panoramic view of the bay is offered from the spacious charm of the living room and dining area; an alcove just off this area accommodates an additional two individuals on twin beds, making the unit ideal for a family of four. Bayhouse Hana has a fully furnished kitchenette that opens into the living room - dining area and enjoys the same views.At Bayhouse Hana, you'll enjoy all the wonders of the oceanside experience in complete comfort. We have chosen to exclude television in our suite, but we do provide WiFi access. * NOTE: The quoted basic rate is for a party of two; there will be an adjustment made in the quote to reflect any additional people in your party.

The sandy beach of Hana Bay is a very short stroll away. Our peaceful town has two grocery stores, a post office, a gas station and three eateries among its businesses. All are within reasonable walking distance. But if you are looking for the glitz and glitter of night club or shopping malls, this is not the end of the island for you.

In the surrounding areas lie the Haleakala National Park at Ohe'o ( a swimming, hiking and camping idyll), and Kahanu Garden, part of the National Tropical Botanical Garden, home of the ancient Pi'ilanihale Heiau, largest Hawaiian temple site; the garden boasts the largest collection of varieties of breadfruit trees in the world, among other native, tropical and exotic botanical specimens.

We are on the east tip of Maui, our sunrises are magic and our evening afterglows are quite lengthy because they start before sunset, thanks to Haleakala, our resident mountain, 'home of the sun'. We get to see the sun going home for the night after a long day crossing the sky.

Looking out to sea, don't be surprised if you happen to spot a whale or two or an entire pod breaching, spouting and splashing just outside the bay; that would be between October and March. Or you may spot a sea turtle cruising along the shoreline scouring the rocks for its favorite seaweed.

If you're not a visual type, just kick back and enjoy the sounds and smells of the peaceful Pacific.

E malama pono! (take good care)

About Bayhouse Hana

William Chang and Anita Bisquera-Chang are the owners/managers of Bayhouse Hana. They are artist-farmers residing in the community. Bayhouse Hana is a family project that was started in the mid 70s; Bill has added some features and renovated the building in recent years.

Why Bayhouse Hana chose Maui

Bayhouse Hana was originally built in 1975, one of the first vacation rentals in the community. It is built on family land that was acquired some four generations back. The Iwa Suite on the ground level has been completely renovated and placed back into service. *The second floor is currently being renovated; as Bill does this work only when there are no guests in residence, though we don't have a completion date scheduled. the upstairs unit may go into operation by mid-year 2016. We will post a notice here at the appropriate time.

The location of Bayhouse Hana is ideal for its purpose. The views are fabulous and the setting is so peaceful... and you don't have far to go for anything. That is why we say it's away from it all and in the middle of things at the same time; you get the best of both.

What makes this house unique

At Bayhouse Hana you're in the middle of town and away from it all at the same time. The suite focuses on the ocean views and sounds; the house is designed to shield you from the road traffic and neighboring dwellings, it's very private but it's not isolated. You are in walking distance to all the amenities of the central town area, stores, post office, community center, snack shop, restaurant and more. The sandy beach at Hana Bay is just a short stroll down the road. Most community events are held either at the Community Hall at the Bay or in the Ball Park next to the Community Center just up the hill; both a short wall away.

Rustic setting with very nice view

  • 3 of 5

Overlooking Hana Bay and a short walk to the beach. Rooms are clean but rustic. This is like going to a weekend lake house. Great location but Spartan. Has nice views of Hana Bay and ocean waves crashing is nice to sleep to. 10 miles from Seven pools. Short drive to restaurants and stores. If you are looking for a high end place to stay this is NOT it. It is nice clean bed with good view. Seems overpriced, but it is in Hana.

Adding pictures of the inside would help so people know what they are getting.

Owner's Response: We don't understand why some of our guests are disappointed that we are not providing a high end accommodation at Bayhouse Hana. Our intent is not to be exclusive; a restive oceanside experience should not have to be available only to those who consider themselves high end. And for this guest's information, there are photos of every room and feature of Bayhouse Hana right on our VRBO site. If you really want high end, the Travaasa Hotel Hana is just up the street from us but not on the shoreline.

Just what we needed after a day traveling the road to Hana

  • 4 of 5

After a day traveling the road to Hana in the rain, my family use Bayhouse Hana to eat, relax, shower and sleep. It is exactly that, no frills but great location and adequate facilities. If you are looking for luxury this might not be your first choice, however for me and my family, when we make back to Hana we will rent from Bill again. Great location to beaches and town!

Owner's Response: We are glad to hear our guests found what they needed at our place. We know our location is ideal, and our suite is large and comfortable. Adding any luxuries and frills will only increase the rate we would need to charge; that would work against many people who have enjoyed staying with us.

Great location for a quiet getaway in Hana

  • 4 of 5

5 star location, 3 star facilities, so 4 stars overall. Wonderful ocean view from the windows. Quick walk down to the beach. Nice "road to Hana" stop and great place to unwind. The house has a basic kitchen and amenities suitable for cooking easy meals. Yes, as previous guests have mentioned, don't leave dirty dishes out, or else ants will invade. Not an issue if you clean up right away. No AC but fans and ocean breeze were sufficient. Good place to stay and location makes up for lack of amenities.

nice owners, great view, but a strange layout- ok for a family, but not for friends

  • 3 of 5

Great location and very nice owners, but the bathroom is through one of the bedrooms. This was, um, awkward for our needs and we ended up needing to get another place.

Owner's Response: One of the bedrooms? Our guests must not have looked at our site very well. It states clearly that it is a one bedroom suite with an alcove that has two twin beds that will accommodate up to four people comfortably. We have added to the description on our site that the bathroom is accessible through the bedroom so it won't be a surprise to anyone. We have never had that response from any previous guests in the last five years.

I stayed one night at the bay house. It was a beautiful location overlooking the ocean and the beach. The sound of the waves were very relaxing for the evening. The house was very clean and had everything I needed. Checking in and out was very easy too. I would stay here again the next time I pass through Hana.

One night in hana

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at bay house hana. We only stayed one night. Enjoyed hearing the waves crashing on the beach putting us to sleep at night. Beautiful sunrise next morning. Enjoyed sitting outside and going to the beach which was only steps away. Great location, nice views from the living room of hana bay and surrounding area. Would to return to hana on our next trip. Secluded, quiet side of maui, no big hotels. Owner was friendly and met us promptly when we called him letting us know we had arrived.

Owner's Response: We are always happy to hear that our guests enjoyed their stay in Hana. The Hana experience does not always meet with our visitors' expectations. We provide as accurate a description of what it is like to be here, but sadly, some do not read our write up before venturing out this way. Michael and his family seem to have found their experience a pleasure and we are glad for them. Aloha
