The cottage is very well equipped and very comfortable. Newly refurbished with furnishings selected and imported from Bali. Perfect for a family of four or a vacationing couple.

Great location! .5 miles to Hana town (stores and restaurants) and 1.5 miles to the pristine beach of Hamoa. Haleakala National Park, 10 miles away--take a hike up through the bamboo forest or a swim in the famous 'seven pools'.

The cottage is close to hiking areas, natural pools and waterfalls, or you can simply enjoy the tranquility of the cottage on the screened lanai. Very private, surrounded by mango, papaya, banana, and tropical flowers. The cottage is well maintained by the owners. You will certainly enjoy this private getaway, far from the bustle of Waikiki.

About Michelle Horen

Otto and Wendy were born in California and relocated to Hana over 30 years ago when they decided to start a family. They are now the proud parents of two young girls who grew up in beautiful Hana, Maui.

They started a construction business which has become well respected throughout the community. They are well known for the quality of their work as well as their warm personalities.

After completely remodeling two of their cottages and transforming them into secluded island vacation rentals their services are now directed towards you, their guests. Through friends and extended family in Hana, Otto and Wendy are happy to help you find whatever experience you might be looking for.

By helping create a relaxing and enjoyable stay for you in Hana, they are constantly reminded of how lucky they are to live in this true paradise.

Michelle Horen purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Michelle Horen chose East Maui

Optimal location but still provides lots of privacy. You can run into town to pick something up for dinner (2 minute drive north) or take a quick swim at world renowned Hamoa beach (2 minute drive south).

What makes this cottage unique

The screened in patio will keep all unwanted bugs out and let you enjoy your morning coffee outside! Also, the washer and dryer on site is perfect for longer stays.

Your Haven in Hana

  • 5 of 5

This private cottage is truly your home away from home. Comfortable, clean, well equipped with screened in porch and view of the ocean, and perfect location for exploring. You can even be lulled to sleep with the sound of the ocean below. Grounds are lovely and alive with birds, flowers and fruit trees, ducks and chickens.

We were there 3 nights but would have loved more time to explore the area and take advantage of the laid back, leisurely life on this side of the island. We loved Hamoa Beach and our excursion to Haleakula National Park where we hiked to the pools and up to Waimoku Waterfall through a bamboo forest. Get there early to avoid larger groups. Thank you for the beach chairs, boogie boards and other beach equipment that made time at the beach even more enjoyable.

We appreciated Michelle's tip to stock up at Mama's grocer in Paia before hitting the Hana Rd, which by the way, if you take it slow and leisurely, isn't all that bad. We had our meals at the cottage using the gas BBQ more than once.

We will definitely want to return to this cottage in this very special part of the island the next time we visit Maui. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to taste 'old Hawaii' in exquisite, peaceful surroundings. Thank you for sharing your home.

Magical time!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 12 days and 11 magical nights. Michelle could not have been more helpful. The cottage is equipped with everything you'd need...even with stuff you probably wont! We had some awesome lititle geckos who visited us...but we felt that was all the more genuine experience . It is really the perfect location if you want the true Hana experience...we will be back...I'm hoping not too many people find our magic place. Thank you Michelle!

Very good, no complaints

  • 4 of 5

Nice accommodation, all the necessary comforts. As almost everyone who comes to Hana rents a car, why stay in the heart of Hana town when you can have lovely peace and privacy at Hale Nanea just a few heartbeats down the road. Peekaboo ocean view(s). Lots of birds and critters, even a little posse of pigs at the ranch next door! They say the best surprise is no surprise--we had a lovely stay.

Nice and private getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 stayed at the cottage for 3 nights and had a blast! The property is in a good location, close to town and is very private. The home was clean, comfortable and made a great resting place during the hotter part of the day. We spent each morning and evening swimming in the shore break at Koki beach and then lunch/siesta at the cottage. Would stay again if we come back to Hana.
