The perfect Hana stay!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this rental! Michelle greeted us as we pulled up to the rental with a few limes from the tree. Fresh baked banana bread was waiting on our counter. We were introduced to their family dog Roxy.

The bedrooms had air conditioning which was very nice at bedtime combined with the fan. It made for very comfortable sleeps. The kitchen had most of the essentials which meant we didn't have to venture out to the local store for too many of the basics.

Michelle and Gale were also very helpful in making recommendations in sites along the highway, places to go in town, etc.

I was very happy to have booked this rental, and you will also love it!

A lovely, well-equipped spot in the heart of Hana with hosts who made us feel very welcome.

Our family of four was very comfortable, and the highlight was the fresh limes right outside. We'd return today if we could!

Spotless, perfect, amenities abound!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to Gale for the warm welcome from him and Roxy. The house is well located but still in a quiet neighborhood. Beautiful kitchen, dining and lanai with lots of room for 5 of us. Beds were comfy and both bedrooms had the quietest a/c. We've stayed at lots of VRBOs in Hawaii and this one is one of the best. So meticulously well cared for and so well stocked. Wonderful! We'll be back.

Gem at the end of the Hana Highway

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about this VRBO!!! We had the privilege of meeting the wife, Michele and she was wonderful and welcomed us warmly to her home in Hana. The accommodations were fantastic and we loved the fresh baked chocolate chip banana bread that awaited us and the stalk of fresh bananas and limes on the trees that we enjoyed while there. Hana is small but with some treasures at the end of the road. We enjoyed seeing the beaches, exploring the shelves at the Hasegawa General Store, driving to the top of the hill to see the cross dedicated to previous resident Paul Fagan that provided an amazing view of Hana and the beautiful bay below. We also traveled beyond Hana to the Kipahulu, the southern entrance to Haleakala National Park to see Oheo Gulch (Seven Sacred Pools) and hiked some on the Pipiwai Trial. We started late in the afternoon to avoid the heat so missed getting to go all the way to the top to see the two waterfalls and the area of bamboo trees. Definitely would recommend that trial. We didn't have to stay at the Travassa Hana Hotel to enjoy one of their wonderful breakfasts in tropical surroundings. All in all it was a wonderful ending to our week on Maui and we were indeed thankful for the opportunity to stay at this amazing home away from home.

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 had a wonderful stay in Hana. The property was so spacious, beautifully kept, incredibly clean, furnished with everything we could possibly need in the rooms, the kitchen and bathroom. A/C and wi-fi worked great. A couple of beautiful beaches are a short drive away, as is the Haleakala National Park for some great hikes and scenery. Gale and Michele were always very personable, friendly, generous and helpful with some great tips of what to do in the area.

The house and owners appeared very nice, however, the listing does not state the owners reside above

  • 1 of 5

Not what we wanted. Owners live above the rental, town of Hana has not much to offer, crowed, grocery store inept. We forfeited our $$ and returned to Wailea area. Treacherous drive as well, not scenic for the driver
