Puuiki Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

The Hana Ocean Palms Bungalow is located across a meadow and road from one of Hana's most beautiful oceanfront pools - Waioka Pond (Venus Pool). The property is nestled in a coconut palm grove and surrounded by almost an acre of lush tropical flowers, fruit trees and bamboo. Pick avocados, papayas and bananas and gather vegetables and herbs from the garden. This charming bungalow has all the comforts of home including a fully equipped kitchen, a gas grill for barbequing, high speed internet access, and a phone for local or long distance calls. The master bedroom has a queen bed and the other bedroom has two twin beds. The bungalow has two screened porches, one with a hammock for an afternoon nap, and the front porch with a double bed looking out to the ocean. Fall asleep listening to the sea from the screened porch and awaken to the sound of the wind in the palms and birds singing. Original oil paintings by a local artist, warm natural wood and bamboo, luxurious rugs and bedding throughout.

The bungalow is about one mile from Koki Beach, famous Hamoa Beach, and three miles from quaint Hana town. It is about a 15 to 20 minute drive to 'Ohe'o Pools ('Seven Pools') in the Kipahulu section of Haleakala National Park. The national park has abundant fresh water pools and waterfalls, hiking trails and a cultural hike to a restored ancient taro farm.

About Rebecca Buckley-Battaglia

I have traveled and lived all over the world, and moved to Maui some 25 years ago. Though I lived on the other side of the island, where I did landscape architecture and design, Hana always has had a particular draw. Eight years ago after selling an ocean front house I moved out here. I also am a boat captain and offer sailing charters in the summer in the Pacific Northwest and the inside passage.

I consider myself an artist, teacher and an adventurer.

Rebecca Buckley-Battaglia purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why Rebecca Buckley-Battaglia chose Maui

Hana is unique in all of Hawaii and sometimes called the 'Last Hawaiian Place', Once you brave the beautiful Hana Highway, you will find yourself in another world and unlike the rest of the island feel you are truly somewhere else.

What makes this bungalow unique

Aside from the magic in the land here and the Aloha spirit of the people, most visitors feel this to be a very restful and rejuvenating place. Fresh air, beautiful grounds, great sounds and fragrances. You are surrounded by fantastic walks, close to great swimming, stunning scenery and simple nature. The food is delicious. Fresh fruit and vegetables as well as fish are available year around.

Great Bungalow in Hana

  • 5 of 5

The Hana Palms Bungalow was great, clean and comfortable. After driving the road to Hana we were happy to have such a nice spot to relax for the evening. The kitchen was fully stocked and the screened in dining table was a beautiful spot for dinner and a glass of wine. If you're traveling to Hana in the summertime remember to pack the bugspray!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this bungalow. The bed on the patio was the best place in the house. It would rain at night while we were sleeping and it was amazing! The location next to the Venus Pool was also great. We had our kids with us that were 5 & 7 and we were all able to jump in and swim. The kids also loved playing in the yard. There were mosquitos when we first got there, but were able to get them under control with some bug spray and it was fine after that. Make sure you stock up on your groceries before you get to Hana because the general store doesn't have a big selection. Also, the grounds keeper was really nice and helpful. We will definitely stay here again!

Bug haven

  • 2 of 5

Don't be fooled by the photos. Steaming hot in July with little ventilation even with fans on high, Mouse poop on the pillows in one bedroom. Screens that don't seal make it easy for mosquitos to bite you all night. The Venus Pool across the way is beautiful to look at but there is no safe way down to the water.

Great place to stay...will return!

  • 4 of 5

This was a very relaxing place to stay...with plenty of opportunity in the vicinity for those looking for a low-key experience on Maui. The yard is lush, the master bedroom is very comfortable, and the lanai is the perfect place for having a meal. The owner, Albert, left us fresh avocado to enjoy when we arrived. Albert is a chill island guy...he gave us great pointers on what to see in the area, and what he thought we could skip. When we checked out, we were heading to the western entrance of Haleakala National Park, and he gave us great hiking tips for that.

Nearby are lovely beaches that are perfect for sunbathing, watching a sunrise (but not a sunset), and swimming. Some of the beaches, such as Venus Pool, have protected coves that allow you to swim while not having to risk strong ocean currents. Some of the beaches are better for just the view, if you're not a strong ocean swimmer (the currents here are powerful and I don't recommend getting into the ocean unless you are very familiar with them).

Also in nearby Kipahulu is the southeast access of Haleakala National Park. The park entrance on this side is right next to the O'heo Gulch, where there are several lovely freshwater pools (sometimes referred to as the "seven sacred pools"). These are beautiful, and if conditions are right, wonderfully cool to dip into. There is a fantastic hike through an eye-popping bamboo forest to a spectacular waterfall, starting from the parking lot by the visitor center. The hike is short (2 miles up to the falls), easy for anyone in decent shape (maybe strenuous for anyone who never hikes or can't handle a modest climb).

One last thing to see is Col. Charles Lindbergh's grave, if it interests you. It's located in a small cemetery behind a little church, and there are no signs at the road to let you know you're close.

A couple of notes on Hana: There isn't much in the way of dining out there. There are a couple local places to eat dinner, but nothing fancy at all. There are roadside food trucks in a couple spots, but they are pretty much lunch-only. If you plan to make dinner at the cottage, then you need to either buy groceries before driving the road to Hana (which is an adventure in up on it before you make plans!), or get into Hana before 6pm...the two very small grocery stores in town close at 7pm and 7:30pm. There is one upscale massage resort, but Hana is really a place to come if you want a vacation without resorts and crowds.

Very fabulous stay here at Hana Palms Bungalow !!!!!

The rain at night….. pitter patter on the roof is heaven….the entire property is like your very own jungle with gorgeous fruit trees (bread fruit,avacado, passion fruit,papaya….) hammocks in perfect locations….and if the owner is home , he can crack open a coconut for a superb drink ! Comfortable beds and furniture, in a rustic plantation style ! A true PARADISE….especially with venus pools across the street !!! We shall return !!!

Unsanitary and unkonwn persons using the facilities during our stay

  • 1 of 5

We arrived at the bungalow and found blood and hair on bed mattress cockroach in the kitchen dead bugs on the countertops dust and cobwebs everywhere my wife has been spending the last 2 hours cleaning these conditions are simply unacceptable. In addition to these problems, we had no hot water and found others used facilities rented to us during our stay. 2 tents with unknown people staying behind the house on the property and using the washer and dryers during our stay - a serious security problem to say the least.
