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.

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.

One of the most beautiful spots in all of Hana

  • 5 of 5

We could not be more happy with our stay at the Bayhouse. Not only was the view beautiful but the thoughtfulness of the owners was beyond belief. Thank you Bill and Anita for your kindness to us.

Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

This was our favorite place to stay in Hana. The location was perfect, just feet from the beach. The common space is large and has a wall of windows overlooking the ocean. Everything was comfortable and spacious. Only enough dishes for 2 though which is odd as it sleeps 4+.

Owner's Response: We are happy our guests found the place ideal. We placed four of each kind of dish, cup, bowl and utensil in the unit; some items go missing at times, but there are other sets that are also included which should suffice unless you're in the habit of using more than one of each item. Staying two nights does not mean to get supplied a separate dish for each night.

Good location, okay place

  • 2 of 5

Only one bedroom and the only bathroom is accessed through that bedroom. Windows on the interior wall of that bedroom don't limit light or sound much if you are traveling with a group. Other beds located on the side of the main part of the unit which includes the kitchen, dining area, and living room area. The unit is part of a larger building that appears to be under construction, kind of strange with a tarp across the bathroom window, which was on an interior wall. Pretty warm in the unit in February and musty smell when we arrived. Decently clean, but several dishes and the coffee pot were not clean. Nice carport and off Street parking. We didn't really like the unit, but we were only there for one night and made it work.

Owner's Response: The write up on our VRBO site goes into detail to describe the layout of the unit, so we wonder why these guests sounded so surprised. The bathroom window is outfitted with green shadecloth screening for privacy; it does not impede the flow of air. All of the windows facing the ocean are operable and provide a fair amount of ventilation when open; there are also oscillating floor fans provided that may be placed wherever needed. The two ceiling fans in the living room may also be regulated by pull chain. The rest of the building is being prepared for another rental unit or other uses that have nothing to do with the Iwa Suite unit. We do recommend our suite for families; all of this information is clearly stated for our prospective guests on our VRBO site.

Great view, great location

  • 4 of 5

All you need is here in Bayhouse Hana. Great view (just a few meters from the ocean), where you can see the waves crashing into the rocks, from the living room, yet quiet enough for a good night sleep. I also liked the outdoor chairs available to relax outside. The only reason I did not give 5 stars, is that there were lots of tiny "bugs", mostly found around the kitchen sink and in the bathroom. Not sure what can be done about those...

Owner's Response: We are happy our guests found Bayhouse Hana to their liking. We are aware that from time to time little ants do manage to come into the unit through the drains in the kitchen and bathroom'; this can happen when enough time passes for some of the water in the "P" traps in the drain system to evaporate allowing the little ants to pass. We do not use toxic chemicals in the unit, because we believe they are more harmful to us and our guests and only lead to insects becoming more resistant. We use essential herbal oils to deter these insects, but they do get through at times. We continue to seek non-harmful solutions to this annoyance,.
