The Gem of Hana

  • 5 of 5

Absolute exquisite dream location with a comfortable and yet ultra-luxury house combined with beautiful views and the friendliest owners who are truly invested in us having the best possible vacation ... Priceless!

I can’t even start telling you how much we enjoyed our stay. This meticulously clean 2-bedroom unit has an open floor layout, there’s plenty of room to accommodate our party of 4 adults and 1 child. Michele & Gale decorated the house with great taste; we loved everything about the house, from their selection of local artworks, super comfortable bedding, to all of their gorgeous furniture. And it is very close to all local attractions.

Don’t be fooled by its relatively low price, it is truly a Gem! It exceeded my expectations in every aspect; I only wish we could have stayed a bit longer. I’d HIGHLY recommend Hana by the Bay to anyone.

Great location, clean, well furnished home in beautiful Hana

  • 5 of 5

This rental was a dream come true, after the crowded condos of West Maui. Roomy, fully furnished and well maintained home with outdoor patio allowed us to relax and enjoy all the beautiful sites of Hana. The home is within a few minutes walk to Red Sands beach, a short drive to Hamoa beach, and relaxing drive to the 7 pools. The Hana part of our vacation was our favorite. Although the owners live upstairs, we always felt that we had adequate privacy, and they were very helpful with tips on things to do, and directions to sites. I highly recommend this rental!

Beautiful and comfortable home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely stay here again! A welcoming home and very hospitable owners. I'm so glad we spent two nights in Hana--I feel sorry for the people who drive down and back in one day.

Gayle and Michele have created the perfect holiday rental! The house is beautiful and perfectly located right in the middle of Hana. Michele's banana bread is the best ever! Thanks so much for an amazing stay!

Perfect location very close to Hana Bay in beautiful accomodations.

  • 5 of 5

Michele and Gale are A+ hosts. Their property is a gem & far exceeded our expectations for our 2 couple/2 night stay, right down to AC in both bedrooms for a wonderful night's sleep. The kitchen is better equiped than mine at home! Next time we must stay longer to soak in all Hana has to offer, and enjoy more hang out time just to relax.

Thank you so very much!

Perfect choice for stay in Hana

  • 5 of 5

There aren't enough words to describe our satisfaction with staying at Gale and Michele's property in Hana. The house is close to the sea, with a partial view of it, but it's not oceanfront. The rental property is at the lower level (itself higher off the ground) with the owners living at the upper level. It has a very nice porch with a big dining table, an outdoor couch and 2 lounge chairs, that make for perfect seating arrangement for eating or lounging. Lounging we did usually, when we were home as it was a relaxing atmosphere. Inside there is an open concept living, dining room and kitchen, with nice hardwood floors. Everything looks modern and decorated brightly with tropical flowers. Even the bathrooms had orchids.

Everything you would need for beach and water is supplied: chairs, boards, umbrella, snorkeling gear. There is a great BBQ on the porch if you feel like grilling. The bedrooms have air conditioning, which is good to relieve the humidity from inside.

Michele's welcome gift of chocolate chip banana bread was very appreciated, along with coconuts, avocados and lime that we also received.

Along with a decent price it made for a perfect choice for a stay in Hana, especially compared to the other rentals that we say in the village.

I would recommend this place to anybody.
