Aloha! Welcome to Bayhouse Hana. Our one-bedroom 'Iwa Suite', with eight hundred thirty two square feet of floor space, overlooks beautiful Hana Bay. It offers a panoramic view of the bay from the spacious charm of the living room and dining area; an alcove off this area accommodates an additional two individuals on twin beds. Bayhouse Hana has a fully furnished kitchenette that opens into the living room - dining area and enjoys the same views.
The sandy beach of Hana Bay is a very short stroll away. Our peaceful town has two grocery stores, a post office, a gas station and three eateries among its businesses. All are within reasonable walking distance.
In the surrounding areas lie the Haleakala National Park at Ohe'o ( a swimming, hiking and camping idyll), and Kahanu Garden, part of the National Tropical Botanical Garden, home of the ancient Pi'ilanihale Heiau, largest Hawaiian temple site; the garden boasts the largest collection of varieties of breadfruit trees in the world, among other native, tropical and exotic botanical specimens.
At Bayhouse Hana, you'll enjoy all the wonders of the oceanside experience in complete comfort. We are on the east tip of Maui, our sunrises are magic and our evening afterglows are quite lengthy because they start before sunset, thanks to Haleakala, our resident mountain, 'home of the sun'. We get to see the sun going home for the night after a long day crossing the sky.
Looking out to sea, don't be surprised if you happen to spot a whale or two or an entire pod breaching, spouting and splashing just outside the bay; that would be between October and March. Or you may spot a sea turtle cruising along the shoreline scouring the rocks for their favorite seaweed.
If you're not a visual type, just kick back and enjoy the sounds and smells of the peaceful Pacific.

Bayhouse Hana is situated at the far Eastern end of Hana Bay. Four large windows look out at the idyllic scene. The property is super clean inside and out. Decor is simple and understated which actually enhances the natural beauty of the setting. Bill and Anita exude Aloha and are a quick phone call away should you need anything. One thing worth mentioning, is that if you are the kind of traveller who expects luxurious pampering then you may be happiest at a hotel. Beds are very clean and plenty comfy however any princesses out there may be unhappy with the firmness of the beds: the humid environment (tropical rainforest) may not be conducive to memory foam. If this is you, stay at a swanky place with a dehumidifier. I happily rate Bayhouse Hana 5/5 based on overall friendliness of the owners, its impeccable cleanliness, the view, closeness to the store and services (walking distance), spaciousness inside, and overall ease of just being there.

Sleep to the sound of the ocean

This home is literally right by Hana Bay, and the beach is a 2 minute walk away. It's clean, quiet, includes all kitchen amenities, and super convenient location wise (everything in town is a short walk away). Bill is nice and helpful when we had questions. Make sure to ask him about how to get to the red beach! It's beautiful and only a 5 - 10 minute walk away.

Owner response: We are happy that our guests enjoyed their stay with us. It truly helps to make the experience one to remember when guests do a little bit or research on their destination beforehand. That way, they are not surprised by or disappointed with their choice of places to visit.
After a week in Napili, my husband and I spent three nights at Bayhouse Hana. The house, rustic but cozy and clean, had everything we needed for our stay. We cooked in for most of our meals, enjoyed the down time and especially the sound of the surf right outside the windows. We hiked to the falls and swam in the pools as well as seeing the other sights nearby. It was a nice break from the busy west side of the island.

Owner response: We are very happy that our guests find peace and relaxation when they come to stay at our place. Even though we are located centrally in Hana, we provide a degree of privacy from the day to day traffic while still offering walking distances to the stores and recreational areas of the community.
The view is stunning, the ocean is right at your window! However it was difficult for my husband and i to get a good nights sleep. The mattress takes ultra firm to a new level! Seriously, i went on a road trip around America and slept in the back of a Kia that was more comfortable. The furnishings while clean and in good condition are reminiscent of a college students mismatched haul from the local salvation army. Rustic if an excellent description of the place. It looks like someone spent a couple of weekends converting a porch into a condo with habitable results.

Owner response: It seems strange that a newly wed couple found our bed so difficult to sleep on when we have had no complaints from any of our previous guests since we opened; some with physical difficulties as well. Perhaps our young couple should do their traveling on a Kia so they can have their comfort wherever they travel. Or was this a convenient way to leave early because of the weather? And ask for a refund.
A taste of "old Hawaii"
A taste of "old Hawaii"
If you've decided to stay in Hana, rather than make it a pit stop on a day trip from another part of the island, then there are a few things you should understand. Hana is "old Hawaii," what it was like years before noisy tourists came demanding to be entertained with silly luau's and high-rise hotels filled with mini bars. The pace is slow, the natural beauty is stunning, and there are many places to see, but if you really want to get off the grid, this is the place. If not, don't stay in Hana, and try and find your aloha somewhere else. Bayhouse Hana is one many accommodations that you'll find on Uakea Rd. My wife and I stayed at Tuttu's House, just one house up the road, for a few nights and were delighted when we entered the property. It's run by husband and wife Bill and Anita, who keep the unit clean and modern. All of the appliances worked, the view from the living room is fabulous, and there's a place to sit outside to enjoy a meal or BBQ. There's an upstairs unit that is under renovation, and occupied by a quiet local tenant. Just a few other tips before I end the review... Getting to and departing Hana. There's always been two roads in and out of Hana, but the less windy road is now better paved. Unfortunately, the mini tour buses that flock to Hana daily, use this road to leave town. The road is very narrow in parts, and the tour buses don't always share it or follow driving rules. They're in a hurry to get a bus load of cranky tourists back to their resorts, giving info over their headsets, and not paying attention to oncoming traffic.The good news is that only happens during the first ten miles out of Hana, or until the road straightens out, but that can be a very stressful hour if you don't plan it right. Leave Hana in this direction early (before 9) or in the late afternoon.

Owner response: We are very happy that our guests enjoyed their stay with us and found it peaceful and relaxing. They have certainly deduced the favorable times to travel "the road" when the tour buses are not obstacles on the course. We residents always travel contra to the prevailing flow of visitors to our end of the island, even if it means leaving earlier than need be in the morning or returning later in the afternoon,
We enjoyed our stay at Bayhouse Hana. Great location right on the bay, we could hear the ocean! Nature at her best! Local flowers abound! We snorked and kayaked rightnin Hana Bay with Kevin as our personal guide! We hope to visit again!

What a View!

When we drove by the place, my husband and I were somewhat worried. As soon as we walked into the place, the veiw took away all my doubts. You can't get any closer to the ocean. This place made me feel like one of the locals. Somewhat rustic but extremely well kept and clean. The only complaint would be the bed. I wished is was a little bigger with more pillows, but how can you complain with a veiw like that.

Bill was very friendly....house was clean and accurate to the description. Wish that there were wine glasses to use not just champagne glasses (unless I somehow missed them then I am sorry).

Owner response: We are happy that our guests enjoyed their stay with us. We will make it a point to add some wine glasses. In the mean time, guests are welcome to use the champagne glasses for their wine, or bring along disposable wine glasses for their needs.
the house sits on the edge of property facing the bay, which is great. the house itself has been under construction for some time and has a long way to go. If you want a really nice spot for a really fair price then this works, but if your looking for a place that looks good from the outside than this is not it. The manager meets you at the door when you arrive and then leaves you alone to enjoy your stay. We did enjoy hana and had a good time. There is no TV which bothered my husband alot, but rest of us enjoyed games.

Escape to Hana
Escape to Hana
Our trip to Heavenly Hana was exactly what we dreamed of and needed. We planned it so that we arrived on Maui, did some provisioning, and drove straight to Hana, arrivng before sundown.Perfect. Upon booking our stay at Bayhouse, the Changs sent all the information we needed to find the cottage, and feel comfortable there. Bill met us there, showed us around, and then left us to our privacy. Again, perfect! The Bayhouse is aptly named; it is right on Hana Bay, with the sounds of crashing waves a constant backdrop to your time there. It is a sweet summer cottage,simple, rustic, but with everything you need to be comfortable. The listing photos accurately show the cottage interior, and the spectacular views of the surrounding bay. It was very clean and all listed amenities were provided. Wireless Internet is included, which is good, because cell coverage is spotty at best! We spent 3 days, exploring Hana and the surrounding countryside, and it was a good amount of time to give oneself. The Seven Sacred Pools were open, full, and the water was warm. Sadly, you can no longer go to Blue Pool, as the access is through private property, and too many visitors abused the privilege. We bought fresh ahi from a local fisherman, and bbq'd it. Delicious! Dinner out at the Hana Ranch Restaurant was excellent, and the ambience was lovely; an outdoor patio, with the trees filled with twinkling lights. If you are lucky enough to be there when Bruddah's BBQ is open, be sure to stop and eat - great pork. Needless to say, we will return, again and again. Hana will forever be on my bucket list!

About the owner: William Chang and Anita Bisquera-Chang are the owners/managers of Bayhouse Hana. They are artist-farmers residing in the community. Bayhouse Hana is a family project that was started in the mid 70s; Bill has added some features and renovated the building in recent years.
Why the Owner Chose Hana:
Bayhouse Hana was originally built in 1975, one of the first vacation rentals in the community. It is built on family land that was acquired some four generations back. The Iwa Suite on the ground level has been completely renovated and placed back into service. The second floor is currently being renovated; as Bill does this work only when there are no guests in residence, we don't have a completion date scheduled for the upstairs unit. In the meantime, only family and friends use the unit upstairs. The location of Bayhouse Hana is ideal for its purpose. The views are fabulous and the setting is so peaceful... and you don't have far to go for anything. That is why we say it's away from it all and in the middle of things at the same time; you get the best of both.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
At Bayhouse Hana you're in the middle of town and away from it all at the same time. The suite focuses on the ocean views and sounds; the house is designed to shield you from the road traffic and neighboring dwellings, it's very private but it's not isolated. You are in walking distance to all the amenities of the central town area, stores, post office, community center, snack shop, restaurant and more. The sandy beach at Hana Bay is just a short stroll down the road. Most community events are held either at the Community Hall at the Bay or in the Ball Park next to the Community Center just up the hill; both a short wall away.
