Wonderful Hana!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a fabulous place to stay in Hana!! Gale and Michele were so nice, and the place was clean and very spacious! We loved being able to see more of the road to Hana, and take our time to enjoy all the places to stop, instead of being rushed to get back. Hana has several restaurants, and a small grocery store, not nearly as desolate as some reviews led me to believe! We will stay a couple of days here again on our next trip to Maui!!

Gem of Maui house- like living an episode of Hawaii Life on HGTV.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were traveling with our daughter and son-in-law, and our stay was for three nights. Gale and Michele Notestone have built a welcoming, plantation style- Hawaiian home. It's large covered porch, A/C in the bedrooms and television/ satellite, spacious great room became an relaxing oasis from the rain Hana offered during our stay. The rain precluded some of the sight seeing and hiking I had hoped to do, but thankfully, this home was a welcoming, roomy place for us to relax. The complete kitchen was a boon too because the local resort restaurant of Travaasa Hana was closed to the public due to private events while we were in town. ( My husband and I were thankful we had booked 'Gem of Maui' because if we had been hotel guests at the Travaasa- how would we have eaten without a kitchen at our disposal with their restaurant closed for private events? Yes- there is one other diner in town- but one meal there was enough.) Michele kindly made us homemade bread and cookies during our stay. Staying at the Gem of Maui- is truly that- a gem. And I lived my dream for 3 days in a plantation style home in small town Hawaii. Sincerely, Rebecca Smith

Super Nice

  • 5 of 5

This place is beautiful, spacious, clean, and nice. Michelle and Gale are super friendly and nice. Michelle had to bail us out twice. Once to show me how to use the coffee maker, and the other time to give me the shower bag my son forgot to pack. When she found it, she texted us and asked us what we would like her to do with it. Since my son could not part with it, and we were still not too far away, we went back to the house to pick it up. She had to come back to the house from her beach outing to meet us. Thank you, Michelle! We had a problem with the dining room chairs. But was told they were going to replace them. Oh, we also loved how the towels smelled.

Beautiful house, views and breezes!

  • 5 of 5

We didn’t want to leave Gale and Michele’s beautiful guest house. We enjoyed cooking in their kitchen, playing “Apples to Apples” together from their selection of games, and liked eating on the balcony overlooking their beautiful garden with its partial ocean view.

I’m a real stickler for cleanliness and everything must have just been cleaned a few minutes before we arrived - that’s how clean it was.

I need AC because of allergies and asthma, and the split ductless in the bedrooms worked perfectly and quietly.

But best of all was the friendly vibe that Gale and Michele create. Michele showed us our floor when we arrived, told us good beaches and hikes, answered our questions and then gave us our privacy. You can tell that both of them love Hana and Hawai’i.

It was one of my best VRBO experiences.

Amazing place with fantastic hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Gail and Michelle's home was simply perfect! It was in a great location, walk to Hana Bay Beach, food trucks and Travaasa Hotel for a drink. The house was super clean and had absolutely everything you would need including beach gear. Thank you for making us feel so welcomed, can't wait to come back!

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!
