About the property

Cottage/Suite, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Ala Aina Ocean Vista is a private, unique, 100% solar-powered B&B suite that is located on a former banana plantation. Nestled in an exotic lush tropical setting, our accommodation promises peace and quiet and offers guests sweeping ocean vistas. Enjoy lying in bed watching the ocean in your king-sized bed surrounded by windows overlooking tropical trees, Hawaiian flowers and rolling green lawns.

Our B&B suite offers a fully-equipped efficiency kitchen on the large private deck. You can cook 'under the stars'! There is an inside private bathroom with marble floors and tiled shower (roomy enough for two), as well as an outside bath and shower with lotus pond in your own little garden. Classic board games, ipod docking speakers, DVD and Direct TV for those that want television.

We are just 2 miles from, 7 Sacred Pools, aka The Pools at Ohe'o or also called 'Ohe'o Gulch'. Additionally we are 10 miles to the town of Hana, where the famous Hasegawa's General Store and the Hotel Hana Maui are located.

We are only 30-40 minutes to Maui's black and red sand beaches. Waioka pond, known as 'Venus pools', are a short 20 minutes away and Alele Waterfall is just 2 minutes away.

The best part is we offer each and every guest a romantic and quiet accommodation experience.

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!

Everything about this property was amazing.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I loved our two night stay. Heavenly is the only word I can use to describe this property. You must see it to believe it. Sam and Mercury are so nice and helpful. We were blown away by the landscaping, ocean vistas and tropical environment. We had a really peaceful relaxing stay and would request to stay here again in the future. Really enjoyed the shower with ocean view, cooking omlettes for breakfast on the private deck and grilling in the evenings. Only regret is we could not stay longer. We would definitely recommend to any couple visiting Maui. Unbelievable experience!

Magical Place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our 2 night stay here. Sam's place is so peaceful we just wanted to sit on the deck and stare out onto the ocean and beautiful grounds all day! We decided to explore Hana so Sam gave us great recommendations and instructions on some amazing hikes and waterfalls. Do take your time and stay for at least 2 nights...Hana is full of beauty and wonder and we could have stayed much longer. Sam is a great host and stocked our fridge with breakfast items for cooking in the outdoor kitchen! Thank you for everything Sam, We had a perfect time at your beautiful home! We will be back again!

A little piece of heaven

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. It was very private and the views have to be seen to be appreciated. We loved the shower, it felt like you were showering outside. We made good use of the outdoor kitchen and was able to get some fresh fish off a local fisherman. We would definitely stay again.

Relaxing and lovely getaway in East Maui

  • 5 of 5

Sam and Mercury's place in east Maui is a wonderful respite from the every-day craziness of life. As long as you bring food (although they even provided fresh fruit!), they have everything else you need there for a peaceful, relaxing stay. Sam and Mercury are very accommodating and we arrived late in the evening the first night, but they had all the instructions waiting at the door, even in a plastic bag b/c it was raining! We spent just a weekend there, and mostly were adventuring along the Hana coast, but were happy to come back in the evening to such a welcoming home and wake up in the morning to gorgeous views of the ocean and rolling green hills. We were really excited to be able to see the big island in the distance some mornings from the bed! Perfect for a couple looking to get away from it all and as a base for exploring the East side of Maui. We'd definitely return and will recommend to our friends!

Gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

Cute little efficiency! unable to use a hair dryer or curling iron (First world problems :)), but I survived. Waking up to views of the ocean on either side of the porch was amazing!! Very nice place to stay and conveniently located to many sights- we did half of the road to Hana and the crater summitt sunset all in one day!

Highly recommend this stay.

Perfect relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Sam and Mercury for opening your home to us! The views were unbelievable, the hospitality comforting, and our stress level non-existent. Being able to see Mauna Kea while lying in bed was amazing. Your yard is impeccable and watching the mongooses forage was delightful. The outside shower and bath put us back in touch with nature. The 2 burner stove was perfect for breakfast and evening snacks. It was a trip we'll never forget. Andrew and Kerei.
