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

Gale and Michele Notestone purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Gale and Michele Notestone chose Hāna
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 Cottage, Amazing Experience
Our stay here in Hana was absolutely amazing!!! I strongly recommend this charming home for all couples. We're world travelers and this was one of the more enjoyable trips we've ever been on... felt like a honeymoon (which it would be great for). The cottage is perfect... super cute, highly clean, great size, very comfortable bed, fantastic location, and the owners put incredibly thoughtful touches throughout (bathrobes, fresh banana bread, luggage racks, movies, etc.) The owners are really friendly, nice people. They met us upon arrival and gave us great recommendations around the area. I broke my toe under a waterfall and Michelle even got me medical tape and taped it herself for me.
It was a great place to watch the sunrise over the beach, and it was only a few minutes drive to the gorgeous beaches, parks, and attractions in Hana. I'm recommending it to all of our friends and would go back in a heartbeat!
This cottage was everything we expected and more!
Michelle and Gale have thoughtfully covered every detail. It was well worth staying in Hana for a couple of days. So much to see and explore!
Hana home away from home.
Hana by the Bay Cottage provides everything you need away from home. You can tell the owners take pride and care of the cottage. The cottage has top of the line appliances and the it is very clean. The cottage has lots of extra towels, water views and a short walk to the beach.
Michelle's banana chocolate chip bread was delicious. We did not get the chance to meet Michelle, but we met Gale and their dog Roxy. Gale was checking to make sure everything was good and if we needed anything. Roxy was very friendly and likes people.
Thank you Michelle and Gale for sharing your Cottage and providing a great accommodation.
