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!

Sweet cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is directly on the Hana Highway but not visible from the road. It shares a fairly steep driveway and property with a 2-story house which is also rented out. Parking is very tight, especially if all tenants are at home. Luckily for us, the bottom part of the house was vacant, so we did not struggle with the parking. The cottage is accessible up a staircase. It was perfect for the two of us with a combined eating/lounging area, relatively spacious, decently equipped kitchen (no dishwasher), and nice air-conditioned bedroom. Although we keep hearing of these trade winds, they do not offer significant cooling in July, so air conditioning, at the very least in the bedroom, is an absolute must. The cottage also had access to an exterior washer and dryer, which was very useful for refreshing clothes after a hot day of hiking. We hiked to the falls in the Haleakala National Park, totally worth it! The cottage is well-located and within walking distance to the Hana Bay beach park, but driving would be faster and more convenient. If we had more time, we would have tried to walk to the Red Sand Beach, because parking is very limited for that beach. In the end we drove to the Black Sand Beach, where we spent a couple of hours, but where most people seem to just come to take pictures and leave. The cottage has Tommy Bahamas beach chairs that can be taken to the beach. There is very limited shopping in the area, primarily from 2 general stores, who do have your basic necessities, but not much else. Overall, we had a lovely stay.

Very nice place. Recommended.

  • 4 of 5

Clean,well appointed cottage. Liked that you are using “green” practices, e.g., large shampoo & conditioner containers in shower instead of wasteful mini-tubes. Three small suggestions: 1) towel drying rack on deck is broken and should be replaced; 2) info binder looks ratty and the map of property is missing; and 3) though instructions said to place garbage in bins outside, no such bins were found.

Home in Hana

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this delightful cottage for 2 nights. Loved the road to Hana experience and all the beauty of the area. Although it rained most of our stay, the cottage made it worthwhile. It is as the pictures depict. Lovely view of the ocean, great location, covered deck, nicely upgraded with comfortable bed and all the comforts of home. Would definitely stay here again.

Cute cottage, great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the stay at the cottage and the location was quite convenient. We like the covered porch area to sit in. Having a coffee machine was great---not sure if its possible, but having some coffee beans at the cottage would be even better.

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.
