Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5)

You drive some two hours on the Hana Highway, one of the USA’s most renowned roads, crossing about sixty bridges as you wind along the scenic crags of Haleakala marveling at the waterfalls and looking down on the wide ocean. This spectacular journey takes you to the best place in the world, in our view. Our beaches—there are six of them, all quite different—are never crowded, our ocean and mountain views are everywhere superb, our people delightful, our rain forest is fascinating and our climate perfect. The spiritual feeling of old Hawai’i is hard to find nowadays, yet it permeates Hana, far from tourist hordes. But, if you are looking for a happy place to stay in Hana, you probably know all that already; and that a day trip is not enough. So here’s why to ring us to check out Kolea Cottage as your comfortable, competitively priced, Hana base for a few days or weeks.

Kolea, timber-built in 2003, (permit t20120005) is located a mile from Hana's tiny airport on the lower slopes of the 10,000 foot Mount Haleakala, surrounded by lawn carved out of the forest in a secluded corner of our fruit farm. Our 11-acre estate is bursting with flowers, fruit trees and tropical plants of many sorts. Guests are welcome to fruit from our trees, flowers from the garden and books from our library to read while listening to CDs of Hana musicians or the dawn and dusk bird chorus, enjoying the ocean view from the lanai.

Kolea’s principal bedroom has a queen bed, the second bedroom twin beds or king bed. Soft linen and towels are provided. Bathroom with tub. Covered lanai with seating. In total, 1,200 sq ft of comfortable home. The kitchen area, which has oven, microwave, blender, large fridge-freezer, lovely granite worktops and plenty of storage, is fully equipped with cooking and dining things. The washer and drier are in a closet off the lanai. Kolea has Time Warner cable connected to a 32” flat-screen color TV, CD/DVD player, telephone, internet and wi-fi. Any special requirements—give us a call and we will do our best.

One warning. Hana is not suitable for those who have a bug phobia. We live in a rainforest, and though it's fully screened in some bugs and geccos penetrate even the best screening.

We provide beach towels, and we can guide you on the eating possibilities, hiking and many things to do around Hana, including special local events which are often not much publicized. None are more than a short drive away.

Kolea Cottage is named for the beautiful bird that owns the cottage lawn, otherwise known as the Hawaiian golden plover. You may meet her if you are here in the right season, for this remarkable navigator puts on her best plumage and departs in the spring to fly 3,000 miles across the ocean for a summer in Alaska, where she raises a family before returning accurately to our yard in the fall.

About Andrew

The owners of Kolea Cottage are developing a fruit farm in Hana after many years sailing the Pacific Ocean and circumnavigating the world. Having seen a thousand islands, they have found the finest possible place to drop anchor.

Why Andrew chose East Maui

Please note that we only offer single-night reservations when they fit with existing bookings or sometimes within 30 days. And that access is only via the stairs shown in the photo.

What makes this house unique

Peace and quiet with adventure if you like in the most Hawaiian place on the Islands.

cozy cottage

  • 4 of 5

we really enjoyed our one night stay here! house was very clean and comfortable. as with all vrbo and airbnb accommodations, the cleaning and extra fees always get you. so to be honest, the cost for one night was a little hard to swallow, but we are glad we got to explore Hana with a lovely place to stay for the night.

andrew was very helpful. we left a swimsuit in the shower and he was quick and prompt to send it home to us. so, i would say, friendly service, clean cottage, happy hana experience.

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

This has a great location and a nice place. Wr happened to have a gecko in the middle of the room who unfortunately was very noisy. The only other complaint i had was no soap for bathing, only two pump hand soaps. This is a great place but would recommend staying more than one night.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for only two nights but it was a great way to not rush through the road to Hana. Owners were very nice. They gave us some fruit from their trees. Just wish we could have brought some home! Photos show the house perfectly. It was easy to find with directions.
