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.

The photos do not do this home justice. Perfect location with ocean views in the peaceful hamlet of Hana. Visitors who drive in for the day are missing out on the true experience of this magical place and this property is one of the highlights. Not a single detail has been missed so even if you forget something, they haven't. Make sure to stop at Costco or Safeway for food on your way here to take advantage of the BBQ and the great deck. The owners are more than helpful with tips and information, not to mention the delicious banana bread. This place is an absolute gem!

Perfect place to stay in the heart of Hana.

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at Hana By the Bay. The cottage is so thoughtfully laid out, and you can tell that a ton of love & effort goes into keeping it clean, fresh and cozy. Michele had the most delicious banana bread we had EVER had waiting for us. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was fully stocked, there were beach towels & boogie boards - the cottage really was perfect for us. Hana is a beautiful place, less busy and touristy than other spots on Maui, and the drive there is incredible. This is the perfect spot for a couple - you can enjoy the sun on the deck, walk to the beaches nearby, and it's a close drive to Hana's other waterfalls, hikes, etc. It was fun to stay overnight in Hana because it took the stress out of doing the drive there/back in one day - we got to check out the sites when they were less busy. Michele & Gale are wonderful hosts, and their cottage is a little piece of paradise.

Amazing Destination

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was super clean, well equipped and was hands down the best VRBO property we have stayed at. Located in Hana and has nice sunrise views over the bay. This property was super quiet at night and had a comfy bed. The pull out couch was good for our son but had the metal bars which would be uncomfortable for an adult (they did have an inflatable bed as an alternative though). Cottage layout and design was well thought out, had a large storage area for suitcases, large bathroom and walk in shower, a fully equipped kitchen with everything you could need to cook including a BBQ on the lanai. New washer and dryer available. Boogie boards, paddle board and other beach toys were available. No cell phone service with At&T at this location but wifi worked great.

This cottage is only a short drive to amazing beaches and hikes. This was our second visit to Hana and we thought 3 night would have been enough. Next time we will spend at least a week!

The owners stop by to introduce themselves and see if we needed anything and were available for any issues.

Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is ideal located in the heart of Hana. From the deck you have a partial view of the bay. We saw whales from the deck. The cottage has a lovely layout that is roomy for 2 people. The kitchen is well appointed. We will stay there again on our next visit! Thank you

Beautiful, tranquil, lush, perfect stay in Hana.

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing stay in the Hana Bay Cottage. Beautiful does not fully describe the property or Gale and Michelle. Cottage is well appointed with everything you could need. Deck is perfect for morning coffee and evening BBQ. Short walk (10 minutes) to Hana harbor and local food spots. Short drive (15 minutes) to amazing beaches. So lush, tropical and relaxing. The gift of homemade chocolate chip banana bread was so incredibly kind and delicious. The Hana days of this vacation were the best. We are looking forward to the next visit.
