Why Sarah & Dan chose Kihei

What makes our vacation cottage 'hale' so special and unique? The KanaKala Pacific Ohana hale is located in the sunny bay side city of Kihei. Our rental lies at the base of the majestic Haleakala Volcano, the world's largest dormant volcano, and at the shores of beautiful white sandy beaches of the blue Pacific waters. Kihei is a fast growing small island community. It lays on the seashore of the largest bay (Ma'alaea). The Hawaiian islands are the furthest islands from any land mass in the world. Maui has been voted the best island in the world year after year! All this and being surrounded by 'Aloha' makes this place 'Maui...No ka 'oi' (Maui is the best)

                                                                    Sue & Colin B.Edmonton, Alberta Canada

                                                                    This year we spent 6 weeks with Sarah and Dan in there Cottage and Studio. This was our first year of retirement and I can't think of a better place to be. Sarah and Dan provide you with all the essentials for a beach/touring holiday and there knowledge of the island is the great bonus they provide. They have become great friends of ours and we look forward to sharing our holiday with them in 2019 and in the future. The cottage and studio have all the essentials to cook your own meals if you want. The BBQ is showing its years of use and will need to be replaced soon or if they get the outdoor grill repaired then that could be a option. I would still like the rooms to be equipped with a small safe to store passports and cash and have talked with Dan about this going forward. Great business run by great people and would suggest this place to anyone, just not in January and February.

                                                                    It has a nice yard and the bbq grill was a bonus.

                                                                    The perfect famliy getaway location

                                                                    Kristen W.Airdrie, Alberta

                                                                    We stayed in Kihei in February 2018 with our 2 year old son. This guest house has everything we needed and ample space. Air conditioning, outdoor shower and beach toys were the amenities we probably used the most! The unit is pretty clean, the owners are lovely and the location is pretty central to a lot of great options in Maui. We used the kitchen for quite a few meals. Nothing fancy but all the essentials are there. Could've used a full sized broom to keep the lino tidy for our full week stay but there was a small dust pan to clean up after our son. Overall, a great experience and we would stay again.

                                                                    Great property, great people, great vacation and all at a great price

                                                                    Greg P.

                                                                    We are a family of four with two children ages four and one. This property was just the home we needed for the ten days we were in hawaii. We really enjoyed being able to have a beautiful lush lounging area in the back to sit and have a few drinks while the children were napping or sleeping in the evening. Also the close proximity to all the local food and beaches was a definate plus and our nightly five minute walk to the beach to watch the beautiful sunsets and whales was a sight we will cherish for years to come. Thank you Dan and Sarah for the wonderful experience and providing such an affordable yet terrific place to vacation. I would recommend this to anyone and we will be sure to return in the future.

                                                                    Thanks for the memories!

                                                                    It was a pleasure having your family stay with us. We certainly enjoyed the company and your help when we needed it. We look forward to having you visit us again. Send us a picture of your family when you were here, we forgot to get one, if you don't mind.

                                                                    Malama pono (take care)

                                                                    BJ N.Eugene, Oregon

                                                                    Our hosts were super friendly and helpful, with perfect beach, restaurant, and activity recommendations. We were just a few minutes drive from everywhere we wanted to go. The cottage was well equipped and perfectly sized for the two of us and in a quiet neighborhood instead of surrounded by crowded hotels or condos. We’re definitely coming back next time we’re in Maui.

                                                                    Home away from home

They have just about everything you need. Since we are moving there we will keep in touch with them. If we have guests coming and not enough room I would recommend to anyone to stay here. Thanks again Sarah and Dan!!! Mahalo 🤙
