Bayhouse Hana, a 1-of-a-Kind Oceanfront Experience on Hana Bay

Bedrooms 1
Space 832 sq ft
Property type house


About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

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.

We advise our guests that we do not use toxic insecticides or pesticides on the property. As in all tropical settings, there are insects in Hana. Roaches are attracted to food and drink left out. Our mitigating strategy and advice to our guests is to seal all food containers and clean up thoroughly after meals. This strategy brings good results and prevents exposure to toxins for our guests and ourselves.

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)

About Bayhouse Hana

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.

Why Bayhouse Hana chose Hāna

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Cozy cottage in an ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed one night, but it was wonderful! The house itself is well stocked with all the essentials for two people. No problems with the hot water or the plumbing. There are several ceiling and standing fans for ventilation if needed. The house itself is beautiful, with lovely parquet floors and lots of windows, a cozy and comfortable seating area, dining table could fit 6 or more, and outdoor furniture if you prefer spending more time outside, including barbeque equipment.

But, of course, it's the view and location that make this place what it is. Right on the bay with a mostly unobstructed view, water rentals close by, right across the street from the Hana Cultural Center, grocery store just a couple miles down the road. If there's something special you want, you should bring it with you, but the grocery has most of the basics. And if you want to go out, there are places close by. We opted for staying in and playing Hawaiian music on the CD player (both CDs and player provided). There is no TV - which we didn't miss- but there is WiFi which is just as good.

We would come back to this place again, just to stay here for a week or two! Good for families too!

Dramatic setting and close to town/restaurants

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do this place justice. The view from the living room windows is dramatic and beautiful. It's also close to all of the restaurants and two great attractions - Hamoa beach and Wanapapa State Park (each 9 minutes away). There is only one bathroom that is accessed by passing through the master bedroom, but that was fine for our family.

Perfect for a simple stay

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four found this place perfect for our time in Hana. The house itself is somewhat outdated (kitchen especially) but it wasn’t a problem at all for us (mentioning it only in case this would be an issue to anyone else). The views are spectacular and we loved that we could walk to dinner and such. We also loved that there was an alcove with two extra beds- after sleeping on pull out couches for most of our trip this was a lovely touch! Our only small suggestion to the owners would be to add one more mirror in a common area so that someone can get ready while another person is showering. I’d highly recommend a stay here for anyone interested in overnighting in Hana!

This place is in one of the most beautiful spots I have ever seen. Quite magical! The kitchen is small but fine and it can get a little warn during the day (There are several fans) as there is no A/C but the location to me makes any small inconvenience seem mild. It is literally next to the state park. And the park while gorgeous can be quite off putting during the evening hours when it gets filled by sketchy types. But just avoid it at dark. We had brought some things to eat so that was not an issue for us. The locals there did not seem super happy to see tourists honestly.

We went to a great little food truck for breakfast the next morning. Just really a delightful place, the beds were comfortable and it cutely furnished. Would ABSOLUTELY stay here again. Highly recommend!

5 stars for the property and owner!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great!! Loved opening the windows, letting in the amazing breezes and listening to the waves crash on the rocks below. It was clean and well appointed. It was easy to find and easy to get into the house. We loved sitting in the side lawn and enjoying the view. The best thing about the house is the number of beds. We had 4 adults in our party and everyone had a comfortable place to sleep. We were glad not to have slept on a pull out couch after a long day! Also, when i booked, i accidentally used the wrong credit card and when i contacted the owner to rectify this, they responded quickly and were quick to assist us with proper payment. I honestly cannot think of a bad thing to say about this property! Two thumbs up!! Thank you for a wonderful stay!!
