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.

Awesome stay in Hana

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Hana Bay cottage for two nights in December and highly recommend it. The cottage was easy to locate, very clean and nicely furnished, and the hosts were friendly and communicative. The cottage offers a fully equipped kitchen and we enjoyed the loaf of banana bread that was provided for us. Ocean toys are available for use.

Feels like home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I can't believe it took me this long to write our review. We loved the location and the view from this lovely, quiet property. My wife and I loved that there was a nice beach to walk just up the road. All of the locals we meet couldn't believe we were staying in Hana since most people drive in and out the same day. We will definitely stay here again in the future.

Beautiful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have done the "Road to Hana" in our two previous visits to Maui, but on this trip we decided to spend our last two nights in Hana so we wouldn't be so rushed seeing everything. This cottage was perfect! Since we knew there weren't many dining options in the area, we really appreciated having the kitchen and grill. And unlike all those roadside stands claiming to have the "best" banana bread, Michelle's is actually the best! She also made sure we had everything we needed. This is a newer rental and is well-maintained and very clean. I would highly recommend.

The perfect little getaway in Hana

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights last week and we were absolutely floored not only by the beautiful property and it's perfect location but also by the warm welcome we received from the owners, Michele and Gale. When we pulled up we had just completed the very long and beautiful drive through the road to Hana and Michele was there to greet us with a smile. She immediately gave us a tour and provided us with maps and suggestions for all the best sightseeing spots nearby. The studio is so cute and beautifully decorated, everything is clearly labeled so there's nothing left for confusion. I was pleasantly surprised that she had baked us fresh chocolate chip banana bread (it was still warm!) And that didn't last the evening, it was so delicious! You won't need to worry about bringing anything, except for food, this place is fully stocked. They had every kitchen appliance you can imagine and even the bathroom had all the essentials. The location of this place is prime as it's right in between Hana Bay/Red Sand Beach and Black Sand Beach, and within close proximity of everything Hana has to offer. I wish we could've stayed longer, 2 days was barely enough to soak it all in. If I ever find myself in Maui again this will be the first place I book.

Thank you both for your generosity and hospitality, staying here made our trip so memorable!

Immaculate, attractive and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Michelle and Gale are very friendly and helpful. Their vacation home is immaculate, extremely attractive, completely fitted out and in a prime location in Hana. We totally enjoyed our stay and totally appreciated the Chocalate Chip Banana Bread thoughtfully provided by Michelle. It is delicious! Hana is remote, beautiful and relaxing. I highly recommend this property, the Road to Hana and Hana itself!

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!
