About Gale and Michele Notestone

Hana By The Bay is Gale and Michele Notestone. We both live and work in Hana. Michele is a paramedic and Gale is Hana's Resident Fire Captain. They have both lived in Hana over 10 years and will live no other place. We are very thankful to live here and wish to share the beauty with others.

Gale and Michele Notestone purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Gale and Michele Notestone chose Maui

Hana is has the true feeling of a small town community. It is a wonderful feeling to go to the stores, the post office, the bank, the gas station, etc. and you know everybody by name, and they know you. As secluded as Hana is, the community relies on one another for assistance. One of the true meanings of Aloha is 'to give.' When you do, time

and time again, the return is often abundant. It warms your heart.

What makes this cottage unique

Air conditioning in the bedroom. There are countless benefits. Additional to what was described above, Hana looks to the East. There is nothing upwind of you but the beautiful blue Pacific. The air is very clean, clear and fresh. Hawaii's trade winds split at the point of Hana, Kauiki Head. From the front of your cottage, you will see the lighthouse there, blinking at you throughout the night.

Another great thing about Hana is you can see the sun and the moon rise from the oceans horizon. This is spectacular.

Staying in Hana when there is more than half a moon is a wondrous time to visit. Full moon is best. If you don't catch the moon, the stars will 'fill the bill'. Because Hana has very little 'city lights', the stars are easily seen. The North Star and Big Dipper await your visit.

Perfect stay in Hana

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this wonderful cottage in Hana. Perfect for a couple, it had everything we needed- great location and super clean, comfortable, up to date lodging. We appreciated the personal welcome offered by our host complete with homemade banana bread. Being able to cook our suppers there (with somewhat limited options for dining out in Hana) and also to use the laundry facilities was a big help to us. After a beautiful but busy day exploring the road to Hana, it was wonderful to be able to relax here on the lovely patio, get a great night sleep and then get an early start the next morning, exploring the 7 sacred pools area only a short drive away. We still had time to enjoy Hamoa beach that afternoon before returning to our cottage. The next morning we were able to enjoy Wai'anapanapa State Park before it got busy. Don't miss the opportunity to stay here!

Beautiful cottage in Hana

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 night (too short) stay in Hana after having been in Kihei for 6 days and definitely wish we had had more time in Hana. This place had everything you would need and more. Delicious banana bread home made for us on arrival. Full kitchen and BBQ on the porch. Plenty of useful items like coffee, condiments, spices, toiletries, etc available for use. Boogie boards, SUPs, snorkel gear, and beach chairs free to use. AC was just in the bedroom, but that was fine. Hope to return soon!

Beautiful, well-kept, every attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

Ron and I went to Hana on a one-day trip 20 years ago and said we'd go back one day and stay there

so that we could take in all the sights and adventures in the area. We stayed for 4 nights. Gale and Michelle are wonderful hosts and live on the property. We were greeted with fruit off their trees in their yard and homemade banana bread. The cottage is immaculate and everything in it is of top quality down to the toiletries and towels. Since we prepared all our meals, we were delighted to find a well-equipped kitchen. The only criticism, and it is minor, I have is that while cooking, the main area became hot, with only fans to cool the room. Things would cool down with the fans eventually. Eating outside was very nice. The bedroom has air conditioning so is plenty cool for sleeping.

There is a top-of-the-line washer and dryer underneath the house. If you are perfume sensitive, take your own detergent. The beach equipment is in great shape and better than at the two other places we stayed while in Hawaii. In fact, everything was better about this cottage than the two other places we stayed.

Gale gave us tips on places to go off the beaten path since we are adventurers and we were not disappointed.

The Hana area is probably the most beautiful place we have visited on all our travels. We would recommend this place to anyone going to Maui.

Amazing hosts, amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Of all three places we stayed at in Maui, this was by far the best. The rental was spacious, air conditioned, and perfectly located. The banana bread that greets you on arrival is out of this world!

Beautiful cottage, awesome surroundings

The cottage is wonderful and has everything you need (and even more). Gale and Michele are very friendly and if you're lucky you will get some homemade banana chocolate chip bread!
