About the property

Beautiful One Bedroom Cottage for your tropical vacation get away.

Now with air conditioning in the bedroom, so you can sleep in comfort. Hana By The Bay is a one bedroom cottage with all the fixings to make your stay in Hana a very memorable one. The cottage has a full size kitchen stocked with seasonings, coffee, creamer, cooking oil, and condiments (ketchup and mustard) in the frig. The outdoor lanai is the perfect place to relax and do some grilling on the BBQ after a day of exploring, or hanging out on the beach.

The queen size bed is a beautiful tropical cabana style bed.

This is one of Hana's highest rated vacation rentals.

We are located within walking distance to the Annual East Maui Taro Festival, the finish line of the infamous Hana Relay, our quaint little town center, and the beach at Hana Bay.

Hana Bay is a popular location for swimming, kayaking, picnics, paddle boarding, luau's, outrigger canoe races, sunbathing and relaxing. Helene

Hall (our community center) hosts small concerts, church meetings, and many other public gatherings. Please take note: Starting May 2017 there will be the construction of a new house being built next door to our property. The crew starts at 8:00 am and they finish at 4pm. Most of our guests are out exploring during the day and so far it hasn't been an issue.

Please feel free to call us with any questions. Mahalo

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.

Best cottage in Hana!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided that we wanted to enjoy the road to Hana and Hana itself, so we looked for a place to stay for two nights and found Gale and Michelle's place. It was perfect! You could tell as soon as you drove up that it was extremely well maintained and would make for a great stay. After we entered, we knew we picked the right place. Everything was organized, had a proper place and we got the best welcome gift anyone could ask for...Michelle's home cooked chocolate chip banana bread! Many of the reviews talk about how amazing the bread is, and they're right! Thank you Michelle! The cottage was perfect for the two of us and they're wasn't anything I would change about it. The bed was very comfortable, the sheets smelled amazing and the entire unit was very up to date. They even provided a washer/dryer, biggie boards, and a whole bunch of other beach items stored under the cottage. I would highly recommend this property, and we know that next time we come to Hana, we will be staying here. Thank you again for a great stay. Say hi to a Roxy for us!

Really Well Appointed Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, with our five-year-old, stayed here in April 2017 for two nights. We were completely surprised by how nice the house was. We expected something really simple, which would have been fine. It was like staying at a spa -- lots of fancy soaps and shampoos in the bathroom, really nice shower and bed. The kitchen was excellent and very well set up, with really all the essentials you would want for a short stay (coffee, cooking oils, etc.). The owners clearly take a lot of care and pride in keeping the house in good condition--plus they made fresh baked banana bread waiting for us upon our arrival. There was beach equipment for us to use, which was nice. You can also watch the sunrise from the deck.

The house is right in the town of Hana, so you are really close to the Hana Bay beach and the shops and restaurants there. Be aware that you will hear some street noise at night, like cars driving by and some neighbors, possibly. Nothing bothersome, it's just not completely secluded like some other properties outside of town might be.

Overall, I would highly recommend this house and would stay here again happily.

And it has NO MOLD, feels safe and is solid;)) When you go to Hamoa beach know there is no food sales but don't be afraid of the food trucks they are AWESOME!!!

Enjoy and savor every moment

2 Nights in Hana

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is absolutely beautiful - clean, tidy and has everything you need. We stayed here for two nights so that we could enjoy the drive to Hana and have time to hike the beautiful Pipiwai Trail, Seven Sacred Pools and Wai'anapanapa State Park. We also were able to walk to the Red Sand Beach, which was just stunning. Michele was there to greet us, and even left a fresh baked loaf of Banana Chocolate Chip Bread - delicious! We really enjoyed our stay here! Thank you so much Michele and Gale.

Loved Hana and this Beautiful Cottage on the Bay!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cottage! It is furnished like a 5 star hotel with absolutely everything you need from cooking to laundry! They also have all kinds of water toys like stand up paddle boards, boogie boards, snorkel, mask, fins, kids pals & shovels, Tommy Bahama beach chairs, coolers, nice beach towels. The owners have really thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. They were very friendly but totally gave us our privacy. Michelle's Banana Bread was also the best we had in Hawaii!!! The location was perfect on a quiet street right in the beautiful town of Hana. We stayed at 6 different locations in Hawaii and this was by far the best! If we ever get back to Hana, I would definitely stay here again!

Extremely good! Stay without hesitation. Clean & beautiful!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is Amazing! All perfectly clean, everything well explained, all things needed... from great coffe (with a grinder for fresh beans!) to a great front patio to BBQ while listening and peeping the sea through the trees.

All fantastic. People, rent this place without hesitation and don't think of Hana as a 1 night to relax after the amazing Hana road... you can stay here longer, tons of things to do... mind you, not a party place... more of a day place to enjoy beaches, trails, great fresh food, etc... if looking for night life go to the other side of the island...

Host Michele, extremely nice... some class shown on small details... cottage includes a very nice Banana bread on arrival, kitchen essentials (oil, vinegar, salt, coffee, everything), beach towels, body boards, beach chairs, snorkel gear & a beautifully decorated house!

This place is the best!!
