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 Forest Reserve
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.

Enchanting and Peaceful
So glad we chose to spend a weekend here on our 10th anniversary trip to Maui! The property itself was beautiful with gorgeous views in every direction and a plethora of fascinating flowers and trees. We particularly loved falling asleep to the sound of rain, the fountain in the garden, and the frogs. The owners are lovely individuals and thought of everything as far as amenities to make our stay comfortable. It was an amazing and peaceful getaway. Definitely recommend if you are looking to get away from it all and enjoy the beauty and nature of Maui! Mahalo, Sam and Mercury, for an enchanting weekend!
Such a cool location to relax and see the sights on that part of the island over a couple days. Loved cooking and eating breakfast on the patio with rainbows all around. Owners were very kind and take great care of the property. Highly recommend staying here.
If you’re looking for relaxation and beauty, this is the place. It is about a 2hr drive from the airport on Hana HWY but the scenery is just beautiful along the way. Ms. Samadhi was fantastic and would absolutely rent from her again.
There would be no way to experience the full trip to Hana and all that is possible to see along the road without staying in the area. This is a gem! We truly enjoyed the fabulous views, the warmth/greeting of Sam and Mercury and the outdoor kitchen and grill. A tip would be to pick up something to grill and a beverage of choice for an evening to be able to experience the environment. In addition to all of the other great things said by other guests, we really enjoyed having the head start on seeing the Sacred Pools and Waterfalls at Haleakala National Park which is only 2 miles from here. It allowed us a wonderfully beautiful and peaceful way to enjoy this splendor and only started getting crowded after we finished our hike. we found their hiking/sightseeing recommendations based on their local knowledge/experience very helpful. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Ny wife and I have traveled throughout the world and in Maui for six previous visits. We have never stayed in such a gorgeous place. The beautiful mango, coconut, and banana trees coupled with the immaculately kept grounds overlooking the Pacific makes magical memories. Sam and Mercury are interesting and special hosts who made every effort to make our stay wonderful. Incredible!!!
Beautiful, private, mostly quiet and very green sanctuary
The outdoor kitchen was cool. You feel apart of nature. Simple amenities. One step above glamping. The one room studio has its own entry door and deck. So you have your own place that is attached but completely separate from the larger guest building. The owner lives on the property in a different structure. There is a lot of little critters to seradade you at night. The mosquitos are serious. There was a giant cane spider inside to surprise us at 4:30 am. Google said it was not poisonous. The mattress is a basically foam so it is serviceable. About 40 mins from the black sand state beach
Ala Aina Ocean Vista is located in the pristine Hana side of Maui on a private estate. Surrounded with lush gardens of tropical flowers, and seasonal fruit trees of; banana, mango, avocado, starfruit, Surinam cherries, oranges, tangerines and lemons (to list a few). The property also boasts ocean vistas and nearby to Maui's famous Wainapanapa Black Sand Beach, Red Sand Beach, Hamoa Beach. We are also close to Waimoko Falls and a few other famous Maui waterfalls. One of the best things our Hana property provides is peace and quiet.
