About Brook Starr, a Hawaii Licensed Realtor

Born and raised on Maui in the area known as 'upcountry', Hana is a place for us to visit and unwind, enjoy some surf on the unique black sand beaches, hiking the rugged terrain and reconnecting after a busy work week. We hope you can share in the experience as well.

Why Brook Starr, a Hawaii Licensed Realtor chose Hāna

Surrounded by lush green trees in close proximity to town and beaches, immaculately clean and newly renovated, this house has become our home away from home.

We love being with the family in Hana on weekends to play at the beach, surf together, enjoy Hana's quiet and beautiful surroundings to unwind and recharge. Hana has so much to offer from hiking and swimming to kayaking and snorkeling its an outdoor tourist's dream.

What makes this cottage unique

After searching for some time, we saw this Hana Bay View property as the perfect opportunity and location to take in all that Hana has to offer. We gave the house some love and attention, renovated it and let it shine. We now want to share it with travelers from all over the world who want to experience Maui's East side beauty. Aloha!

Quiet and relaxing stay, very comfortable!

Great location with all the amenities. Tucked away private feel that's a perfect place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. Bring flip flops for the outdoor shower's stone floor, which is a great feature! Enjoy the view!

Peaceful country cabin

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely place to stay in Hana, and we enjoyed our two nights there. The place is updated and clean, and it is a spacious 1-bedroom with a fully equipped kitchen. The deck is nice, although there's only a glimpse of the ocean from there, in part due to the fact that the greenery has grown quite a bit since the photo provided. The greenery creates a nice sheltered oasis, but it does block the view quite a bit, especially toward the water. The cabin is several blocks from the coast, so don't expect to be on the water here.

There's a small air conditioner in the bedroom, but the rest of the house has no air conditioning. When we were there in September it was very hot, so we were very grateful for the cool bedroom but sweltered in the rest of the cabin.

The place is on the main road, but it is set back so there's quiet and privacy. If you walk out, it's necessary to walk along the shoulder of the narrow Hana highway (there's no sidewalk), so that's not ideal. However, if that doesn't bother you, it's possible to walk to the town beach in less than 10 minutes. There's even an amazing hidden beach about a 20 minute walk away, although we found it through a guidebook since the cabin didn't have much information about the environs. We wished the owners had provided a bit more information about walks, local resources, places to eat, and local beaches.

Don't miss the outdoor shower! We found it by accident on our last day and really enjoyed using it.

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

This is an adorable little cottage, sort of a little "guest house" sharing a property with a main house. There are trees and a shade cover though which pretty much block the view of the main house, so it still feels very private. You do have a view of Hana Bay and it is a short less than 5 minute drive to reach it. The town of Hana is a beautiful and very quaint, although there are a lot of mosquitos so be sure to pack some bug spray!

The unit itself is very well kept and clean. It appears to have been updated recently. My husband and I stayed here for the last two days of our honeymoon and really had a wonderful time. The space was perfect for the two of us and Brooke was great to work with.

We have T-Mobile and had no cell phone reception in most areas in and around Hana, but were able to use the wifi at the cottage just fine when we were there. We were on our honeymoon, so we didn't really need to talk to anyone else anyway!

Very clean and well maintained - right in middle of Hana Town!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came here on our honeymoon and stayed while on our travels to other islands. This place had everything we needed to have a quiet and relaxing time while in Hana. You can wake up and watch the sunrise from the deck or bedroom, nice sized kitchen for cooking and the general store is right up the road. My husband and I made great memories here, it was our first time in Maui and we will definitely be back! There is also parking on premises which made getting around super easy with the rental, many beaches close by and good food trucks! Thank you for sharing this home with us we LOVED it!

Hana Bay
Car: necessary

Our home is located in the rural town of Hana, on the East side of Maui. There are beautiful beaches nearby, including Hana Bay, a 10 minute walk away, and Hamoa Beach, a 10 minute drive down the road, consistently named one of the most beautiful beaches in America, where we like to spend our time surfing, swimming with the kids, and lounging under the shady trees.

Lots of hiking to see waterfalls and swimming in fresh water pools, including Oheo (Seven Sacred Pools) that is part of the U.S. National Park Service and Waianapanapa State Park that has a cool volcanic grotto you can swim in, a black sand beach, and a blow hole along the coastline.

Or just relax on the covered deck, play some cards, board games, read a book, or enjoy a movie or two via the wireless internet on your computer or tablet.

There are many mom and pop places to eat, including a bright orange burrito food truck right in town with great burritos, coffee and pastries that is owned/operated by Andy and Tuna, a brick oven pizza place, Thai food stop, other 'plate lunch' stops, and fresh organic fruit and veggie stands where much of the food is grown organically right here in Hana.

There are two main general stores in town to get most of your basic necessities. If you want a large variety of food to choose from though it may be wise to get some provisions from the main part of the island before you head out to Hana. Our favorite food store on the island is Mana Foods, in the town of Pa'ia on the North Shore, where they're loaded with fresh, natural and organic grocery shopping, a deli, bakery and vitamin room. Although, we also frequent Hasegawa's General Store and the Hana Ranch Store in town during our stays.

The road out to Hana itself is half the treat, with dramatic scenery of the cliff-lined coastline, a couple of fruit stands (including a mobile creperie along the road in the jungle as you begin your journey!), and lots of hikes from trail heads off the road. As with any adventuring please be cautious and aware of your surroundings and weather conditions while enjoying the outdoors.

A tip for the drive out to Hana, pack a lunch with snacks and drinks, don't rush it, and pull over for faster drivers if they come up behind you. There are many pull-out spots, the drivers behind you will appreciate it, and you can relax and really soak in the beauty.

There is one gas station in Hana town, and none along the 2-hour drive from the main towns on the other side of the island, so fill up before you get here.

Hana is a tropical paradise, which means it has little critters like mosquitoes or ants at times, and don't be surprised by the odd chicken or two, mongoose, (cows, there's a beautiful working cattle ranch) or other wildlife in an around Hana town and the East side of the island. Our home is usually nice and breezy, and we have quarterly treatments of the outside and inside of the home with natural repellents, so there should be little activity of small critters, however, closing screen doors and cleaning up food after eating is always a good idea. We have some mosquito repellent there if you need it, just in case. And if you have any problems please let us know.

Our location is very convenient to the beaches, sites and stops in Hana, with great views, and as can be seen from the photos and mapping, we are in a residential setting. There can be some typical neighborhood activity including traffic on Hana highway, neighboring pets / dogs occasionally barking or local chickens that roam freely. We have a large redwood fence along the rural road and plantings around the property to make you feel tucked away. Feel free to get in touch with me to answer any questions you may have.

The 1br/1ba rental rate is $199 US/night, a one-time cleaning fee of $55 plus taxes and fees, which you can reserve yourself online. Maximum number of guests is 2.

The maximum number of guests we may have on the property is 6, if you have additional members in your party please call or email us, we can refer you to additional rentals in the immediate area to accommodate everyone.

We hope you enjoy your stay!!!

The property is owned and co-managed by Brook Y. Starr, a Hawaii licensed realtor.
