About the property

Beautiful One Bedroom Cottage for your tropical vacation get away.

Now with air conditioning in the bedroom, so you can sleep in comfort. Hana By The Bay is a one bedroom cottage with all the fixings to make your stay in Hana a very memorable one. The cottage has a full size kitchen stocked with seasonings, coffee, creamer, cooking oil, and condiments (ketchup and mustard) in the frig. The outdoor lanai is the perfect place to relax and do some grilling on the BBQ after a day of exploring, or hanging out on the beach.

The queen size bed is a beautiful tropical cabana style bed.

This is one of Hana's highest rated vacation rentals.

We are located within walking distance to the Annual East Maui Taro Festival, the finish line of the infamous Hana Relay, our quaint little town center, and the beach at Hana Bay.

Hana Bay is a popular location for swimming, kayaking, picnics, paddle boarding, luau's, outrigger canoe races, sunbathing and relaxing. Helene

Hall (our community center) hosts small concerts, church meetings, and many other public gatherings. Please take note: Starting May 2017 there will be the construction of a new house being built next door to our property. The crew starts at 8:00 am and they finish at 4pm. Most of our guests are out exploring during the day and so far it hasn't been an issue.

Please feel free to call us with any questions. Mahalo

About Gale and Michele Notestone

Hana By The Bay is Gale and Michele Notestone. We both live and work in Hana. Michele is a paramedic and Gale is Hana's Resident Fire Captain. They have both lived in Hana over 10 years and will live no other place. We are very thankful to live here and wish to share the beauty with others.

Gale and Michele Notestone purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Gale and Michele Notestone chose Hāna

Hana is has the true feeling of a small town community. It is a wonderful feeling to go to the stores, the post office, the bank, the gas station, etc. and you know everybody by name, and they know you. As secluded as Hana is, the community relies on one another for assistance. One of the true meanings of Aloha is 'to give.' When you do, time

and time again, the return is often abundant. It warms your heart.

What makes this cottage unique

Air conditioning in the bedroom. There are countless benefits. Additional to what was described above, Hana looks to the East. There is nothing upwind of you but the beautiful blue Pacific. The air is very clean, clear and fresh. Hawaii's trade winds split at the point of Hana, Kauiki Head. From the front of your cottage, you will see the lighthouse there, blinking at you throughout the night.

Another great thing about Hana is you can see the sun and the moon rise from the oceans horizon. This is spectacular.

Staying in Hana when there is more than half a moon is a wondrous time to visit. Full moon is best. If you don't catch the moon, the stars will 'fill the bill'. Because Hana has very little 'city lights', the stars are easily seen. The North Star and Big Dipper await your visit.
