Recent Hana reviews

  • Definitely coming back

    "After 3 days at a resort in Wailea, we spent 4 utterly relaxing days at Ekena (Jasmine) and in Hana, enjoying Koki beach in the morning and cooking island style dinners in the afternoons from a copy of "What Maui Likes to Eat" that we picked up in Wailea. The kitchen has pretty much everything you need equipment-wise - graters, garlic presses, etc. The views from the deck were gorgeous - you could spend all day there just sipping wine and enjoying the ocean breeze, the rainbows, and, if you get up at night, the stars, which were pretty amazing. Hana town, what there is of it, is about 5-10 minutes away, and it's easy to pop over to Travaasa for a drink if you want, or go island style at Koki's huli-huli chicken, A's Thai food, or any of several other small roadside joints. Robin was helpful and inconspicuous. You can get basics and beer/wine locally, but its a vacation home, not a hotel or B&B, so bring your own food and spices from the Safeway and Ah Fooks Asian grocery near the airport in Kahului. Very good beach chairs and boogie boards come with the place, as does a washer/dryer, so you really don't need to bring much else. Next time we'll bag the resorts, which could be anywhere, and just come back here. (PS. The "I'd recommend this property for" list doesn't have the right category. I'd recommend this property for experienced travelers who enjoy a laid back, relaxing escape.)"

  • Fantastic Vacation Home

    "After spending one week at Kaanapoli Beach, we closed out our family vacation at this rental. We can't say enough positive about the home. The views of the ocean and sunset are unreal! Loved the location being outside the town Hana. Great access to all of the must see areas of Hana. The available boogie boards and beach chairs were an added bonus. Hamoa Beach is now our family's favorite beach on Maui."

  • Aloha Spirit

    "My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights. It was our third time back. Each time we've wanted to stay longer. What a great place to start a vacation. So beautiful and peaceful. To have a house all to yourself in the flower jungle is truly amazing. Due to its location we usually expect a few inconveniences. It's the price you pay for the isolation. This time had the problem of the prior electrical outage which was being dealt with and a water pump problem which was ultimately resolved. Cathy and Jim who live close by and take care of the house were so nice and helpful. We were even offered another place in Hana. But we stayed here and enjoyed our last night in beautiful Hana with no problems. Only the sound of soft rain at night and birdsongs in the morning."

  • A O'Loko cottage at Papalani: A Place of Inspiration!

    "Sybil's Bamboo Gatehouse at Papalani was a place of tranquility, the perfect spot for my husband and I to escape from the biting cold winter and fast-paced work stress that we left behind Anchorage. When we arrived, Sybil welcomed us and encouraged us to take advantage of the bounty in her own backyard, which we did: we ate tangerines and starfruit plucked straight from the tree every morning for breakfast, and enjoyed banana bread, guavas, papaya, avocado and radishes from the local farm stands. What I loved most about Hana was the process of discovery; the beautiful beaches and swimming pools were within walking distance, but you had to know where to look. Fortunately, Sybil provided us with her own maps and guidebook to make the trips easier: follow the small dirt path through a cow pasture and down the cliff to a beautiful, private, black sand beach where you can watch the sunrise. Or follow that same path slightly south to the Venus Pools, where you can jump from the rocks into the deep water and use snorkeling gear to check out the colorful fish swimming underneath you. Just a short drive (5 minutes) will take you to the white sand, Hamoa Beach, which is great for body surfing, but be careful--we bent one of our boogie boards. Don't try to fight the waves, they win every time. The Red Sand Beach is also very close and quite stunning. If you have time, check out the Lava Tube and the temple at Mile Marker 31. The cottage, A O'Loko, has a deep tub big enough for two, and plenty of sleeping space for 5 people comfortably. I loved reading in the bay window in the morning while my husband slept. The kitchen is fully stocked with all of the equipment you'll need; just make sure to stop at the grocery stores by the airport for the basics before you make the trip to Hana. Hasegawa General Store has an odd assortment of supplies that are a bit costly, but the grass-fed beef is well worth it. Nature lovers will particularly enjoy this cottage, from the soundtrack of birds, to the geckos hanging out in the ceiling (just chillin'). We had to be mindful of the spiderwebs when using the outside shower, but the spiders were harmless and actually helpful by eating up the pesky bugs. There was one stealth ninja mosquito that I could not find, but it seemed to find me every night while I slept. Nevertheless, the few bites I took were well worth the price for paradise. We HIGHLY recommend staying at Papalani and will likely be back sooner than I'd thought!"
