This unique location really puts you off the beaten path into the tropical setting with banana trees everywhere. Sybil proudly shows off this jungle setting and unique plants that she has nurtured for 12 years to their grandeur today. Yes, it was the rainy season in Hana, but we loved watching and hearing the rushing river outside our unit. We...

Visiting some new friends, I had the chance to go to Maui and stay at the Papalani a wonderful B&B. The room was spotless and at $160.00 a night, I was able to stay a few days and really enjoy the sites and my new friends. The whole place felt like being in a jungle. The bed was very comfortable...

The first thing you'll notice when you arrive at Papalani is that it's off the beaten track. You will be entering a pleasant escape from the normal accommodations you may be use to. Sybil and Tracy are the proprietors of these three private residences offered. Peaceful is the word for this jungle-like setting. You'll be surrounded by an orange morning...

This is my first ever trip advisor review. I use the resources here all the time so thought I should finally give back. Sybil's place is perfect. If you are like me you search the internet for neat places to take your family. As Sybil once said to me it's time to jump in, you have found the perfect place...

We stayed in the garden room for two nights in June 2011 with our two teenagers. The room was private, very large, with a tile floor, fans, three queen beds, an inside toilet, an outside shower with solar-heated hot water, and a little outside screen-enclosed kitchen. The outside shower was fun -- there are little white Christmas lights on it....

How anyone can write a bad review on Papalani is beyond belief. This is an OUTSTANDING place to stay. The owner, Sybil, is the nicest person any one could meet. She is the crown jewel in this island paradise. If one is looking for a relaxing enjoyable vacation Papalani is the place to go. The property is beautiful and the...

It's a perfect place to relax and it is close to hiking at the...

We spent 3 days (2 nights) in Hana and loved every moment of out stay! The perfectly appointed 2 bedroom suite we stayed at was beautiful, spacious and incredibly comfortable. Sybil, the owner, is a very gracious hostess, welcoming and warm hearted. We highly recommend Papalani to anyone looking for tranquility and beauty in the lush tropical Hana.

First I must say that Sybil, the owner, is incredibly gracious, friendly and generous. She not only engaged with her customers, but also offered to pick up anything when she was going to "town." Hana is a lovely spot with the typical rain forest vegetation. Papalani is surrounded by banana, mango and papaya trees, as well as gorgeous flowers and...

What can you say when an experience so far exceeds your expectations you can hardly describe it? It would be impossible to overstate the lush, tranquil beauty of this property. Located four driveways past mile marker 48 off the main highway on other side of Hana, this lodging has to be Maui’s best-kept secret. You turn into the driveway and...

“Of the four units available, The Gate House offers the most privacy, but it is also the closest to the roadway. It also has a sunken tub in an outside, screened in bath. The "Ohana" is my favorite.”
