Aloha! Welcome to Bayhouse Hana. Our one-bedroom 'Iwa Suite', with eight hundred thirty two square feet of floor space, overlooks beautiful Hana Bay. There is a queen size bed in the bedroom; the bathroom is accessible through the bedroom. A panoramic view of the bay is offered from the spacious charm of the living room and dining area; an alcove just off this area accommodates an additional two individuals on twin beds, making the unit ideal for a family of four. Bayhouse Hana has a fully furnished kitchenette that opens into the living room - dining area and enjoys the same views.At Bayhouse Hana, you'll enjoy all the wonders of the oceanside experience in complete comfort. We have chosen to exclude television in our suite, but we do provide WiFi access. * NOTE: The quoted basic rate is for a party of two; there will be an adjustment made in the quote to reflect any additional people in your party.
The sandy beach of Hana Bay is a very short stroll away. Our peaceful town has two grocery stores, a post office, a gas station and three eateries among its businesses. All are within reasonable walking distance. But if you are looking for the glitz and glitter of night club or shopping malls, this is not the end of the island for you.
In the surrounding areas lie the Haleakala National Park at Ohe'o ( a swimming, hiking and camping idyll), and Kahanu Garden, part of the National Tropical Botanical Garden, home of the ancient Pi'ilanihale Heiau, largest Hawaiian temple site; the garden boasts the largest collection of varieties of breadfruit trees in the world, among other native, tropical and exotic botanical specimens.
We are on the east tip of Maui, our sunrises are magic and our evening afterglows are quite lengthy because they start before sunset, thanks to Haleakala, our resident mountain, 'home of the sun'. We get to see the sun going home for the night after a long day crossing the sky.
Looking out to sea, don't be surprised if you happen to spot a whale or two or an entire pod breaching, spouting and splashing just outside the bay; that would be between October and March. Or you may spot a sea turtle cruising along the shoreline scouring the rocks for its favorite seaweed.
If you're not a visual type, just kick back and enjoy the sounds and smells of the peaceful Pacific.
E malama pono! (take good care)

William Chang and Anita Bisquera-Chang are the owners/managers of Bayhouse Hana. They are artist-farmers residing in the community. Bayhouse Hana is a family project that was started in the mid 70s; Bill has added some features and renovated the building in recent years.
Bayhouse Hana was originally built in 1975, one of the first vacation rentals in the community. It is built on family land that was acquired some four generations back. The Iwa Suite on the ground level has been completely renovated and placed back into service. *The second floor is currently being renovated; as Bill does this work only when there are no guests in residence, though we don't have a completion date scheduled. the upstairs unit may go into operation by mid-year 2017. We will post a notice here at the appropriate time.
The location of Bayhouse Hana is ideal for its purpose. The views are fabulous and the setting is so peaceful... and you don't have far to go for anything. That is why we say it's away from it all and in the middle of things at the same time; you get the best of both.
At Bayhouse Hana you're in the middle of town and away from it all at the same time. The suite focuses on the ocean views and sounds; the house is designed to shield you from the road traffic and neighboring dwellings, it's very private but it's not isolated. You are in walking distance to all the amenities of the central town area, stores, post office, community center, snack shop, restaurant and more. The sandy beach at Hana Bay is just a short stroll down the road. Most community events are held either at the Community Hall at the Bay or in the Ball Park next to the Community Center just up the hill; both a short wall away.
We enjoyed our stay. Great location. Clean
My wife, 2 teenagers and I visited Bill's home for one evening this past week. His house is situated nicely right off the Hana Bay with great views of the ocean. It is modestly furnished as shown in his pictures. We called him right as we arrived and he came over and greeted us/let us into the home. We chatted for a few minutes, what a nice man. As we were only there from about 5pm-9am the next morning, we made dinner that we brought with us, listened to the Hawaiian CD's at the house (which were awesome) and went to sleep. The next morning we made some breakfast, drove around town a little bit and left back for Waalea where we were staying. Beds were all comfortable, bathroom sufficient. The one small suggestion I'd have for him is to add a fire pit in the back yard as we sat out there during the evening watching the stars and it was cool with the ocean breezes...a small fire would have been perfect! Other than that the facilities were just fine for Hana and it was nice and clean.
As the other reviews state, don't expect luxury here but our family of four was comfortable here for a one night stopover as we drove the entire circle around the southern 1/2 of the island. The best part of this home is hearing the waves crashing all night as this house is directly on the ocean. Hana is small...everything you need is within walking distance.
We had a lovely night at the Bay House. The location is just beautiful, right on the bay. We all enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the waves and waking up for coffee with a Bay view! Thanks again for sharing your lovely home!
The property is mostly what you imagine it, there was what appeared to be some construction on the unit, but nothing being worked on while we were there. The owners are awesome. Super responsive, loved this. We had one issue with a key being locked in the house, and they had a solution asap for us. As the Hawaiians do not spray, which I completely understand, you do have to be prepared to be very very clean. Bring extra zip-lock bags for your food. This was a great place to stay. Better than the fancy hotel on the other side of the island we came over from. Would completely stay here again. And in advance, we did our shopping before heading into Hana, as the owner suggested, and that worked out very well for us. Perfect trip.
This property has a great view and has potential to be an outstanding rental. It fills a niche market for those who seek a toxin free environment. You can look right out the living area's many windows onto a lava rock beach with crashing waves, yet you are only a 3-5 minute stroll to a gentle sandy beach for a moonlight stroll (which I loved!)...a good rest after that tiring drive to Hana. Since this is a toxins free cabin, you may see a Hawaiian sized bug or two during your stay. The house is clean and linens are line dried and fresh smelling. We brought organic essential oil insect repellant with us, which was a good match for this place. There is construction ongoing on the upper floor which makes the front of the house look...well... under construction, and is why I rate the property as having the potential to be excellent. However, that being said, the owners do not work on the property while you are there. When you get to the back where you will be staying, facing the ocean, it is quiet, lovely and private. The in-tub mat and shower curtain are ready for replacement, and I recommend investing in some cuter lawn furniture to entice the vacationer to sit there and watch the gorgeous surf...but otherwise we had no complaint. The bed is very comfortable and there are many fans in the cabin which we enjoyed. The price is quite high for what you might get on the mainland, but hey, it is Hana Maui.
Be aware that not all cell phone services are available in the Hana area.
