About Samadhi Butterfly

Originally from Michigan, I have been blessed to be a Hana, Maui resident since 1982. I run our B&B with my daughter. Together we have created this special place for our guests to enjoy and we keep busy making sure our 4-acre parcel is beautiful and manicured.

We were fortunate to have found this lush and peaceful spot on the Island of Maui. After my husband passed, my daughter and I needed a way to make a living, so we took advantage of having a space to renovate into a Bed and Breakfast, as this allowed Mercury (my daughter) and myself to stay at home, run a business and have a connection with wonderful folks from all over the world. This has worked out better than we could even imagined!

Samadhi Butterfly purchased this cottage in 1989

Why Samadhi Butterfly chose Hana

We are 100% green (completely solar powered) and offer our guests the chance to enjoy the lifestyle and and views that one would expect of a tropical paradise. Although we are always happy to answer questions and can offer plenty of advice on any Hana activities or sightseeing spots, we ultimately respect the privacy of our guests and believe in making sure you have a peaceful and romantic stay while you are here. We are around when you need us… and respectful when you want to be alone.

What makes this cottage unique

We have the luxury of privacy, peace and quiet in our setting. Mercury and I enjoy staying on our blessed piece of paradise and working in nature to make things beautiful. We enjoy donating to the homeless with our abundant fruit from our trees. We get most of our social connections with the wonderful folks that visit our B&B. We enjoy being totally 'green' and helping provide true eco-friendly accommodations but with the creature-comforts one would expect of a wonderful place to vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The Mother-Daughter team do a great job at hospitality in their

"Piece of Paradise". We enjoyed two of our dinners on the lanai

watching the sunset. One dinner we ate off of the bamboo tray on our

bed because of the rainfall. As the evenings progressed, we would sit

at the table and read, eat tropical fruit from the property then

crawl into the king size bed and watch the geckos crawl up the

outside of the windows. The croaking frogs and light rainfall lulled

us to sleep several nights.

We enjoyed coconut milk, mangoes and bananas from the beautifully

manicured grounds (a former banana plantation).

Once we were greeted and shown around, we were given complete

privacy, unless we sought them out with a question. I bought a nice

costume jewelry necklace from Mercury's collection of handmade

jewelry. We appreciated all of the plumerias and other exotic flowers

used to decorate our room.

We would recommend Ala Aina Ocean Vista, especially for honeymooners;

lots of privacy and beautiful scenery. The only sounds we heard were

the mooing of nearby cows occasionally, birds trilling, the wind in

the mango trees and the frogs at night. Ahhhhh, lovely!

This is the exact opposite of Kaanapali's hustle and bustle. it's

remote, quiet & relaxing. If you want to rejuvenate and enjoy nature,

this is the place to stay!

Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Sam & Mercury's during our visit to Maui and they were definitely three of the best days of our vacation. The property is a truely an escape from it all and we loved exploring Hana / Kipahulu and relaxing at the house. There are a number of really great sites to explore close by - Venus Pools, Seven Sacred Pools / Bamboo Forest Hike, Red Sand Beach, Alelele Pool (a Sam & Mercury recommendation that we thought was a hidden gem). We loved cooking our meals in the outdoor kitchen, stargazing in the grass at night, and the peace and tranquility that surrounded us during our entire stay!

Beautiful property in a gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the first four nights of our honeymoon here, and we absolutely loved it. The location was definitely remote, but that was exactly what we wanted -- the perfect escape from civilization. We loaded up on supplies before driving out to Kipahulu, and we had a great time cooking and eating in the little outdoor kitchen/patio area. The views in every direction are truly breathtaking, and being so close to the Seven Sacred Pools and Venus Pool meant we could get there first thing in the morning and have the place to ourselves. If you're looking to unplug and experience some seriously beautiful nature, this place is perfect. We had an amazing time and would love to come back someday!

AMAZING!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the most beautiful and serene places we have ever stayed at on Maui. Sam and her daughter Mercury are two of the most beautiful souls on the planet. They were extremely helpful and answered any and all questions. Did I mention this place is beautiful? Oh, and the place is incredibly beautiful. Escape the tourists and enjoy Hawaiʻi the way it should be. It's good for your soul. Mahalo nut Sam and Mercury, you are no ka ʻoi!! Malama pono!!

Off the grid (literally)

  • 4 of 5

This was a great way to end a long vacation. You are forced to slow down a little but there is still plenty to do. You get to enjoy Hana town and hit some of the tourist spots before anyone else gets to town. The hike through the bamboo forest to a waterfall was a highlight and cliff jumping at Venice pool. You have just enough to be comfortable and the cost is very reasonable.

Gorgeous, Beautiful and Peaceful Property

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we had hoped for and MORE. Sam and Mercury were so welcoming and made us feel like part of the family. The view is amazing. The outdoor kitchen is fun, in fact we miss it now that we're home. The pond was one of our favorite features with the frogs and toads singing at night. The bed was comfortable and bathroom shower had the most amazing view, not to mention room enough for 2. We did not want to leave this little slice of heaven. Worth the drive through Hana.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Amazing and beautiful property! Accommodations were true to the pictures shown on their site. We spent our mornings exploring the local beaches and sites before the tour buses arrived! Late afternoons were spent relaxing on their deck. A perfect combination. Highly recommended if you want to unplug and relax. Many thanks to Sam and Mercury for being wonderful hosts.
