“The best stay on Maui!”
Reviewed 6 March 2014 for a stay in February 2014

people found this review helpful

The photos don't do it's justice. This place far exceeded our expectations, which are normally quite high. We were in awe even for arriving at night. We were pleasantly greeted by Rebecca and her husband, paid our dues and headed down the property to the secluded Hana Cabana. The property was absolutely beautiful and you have full privacy, even when they are picking picking flowers 2 days a week. There are football sized avocados (no exaggeration) growing on the tree beside the Cabana, but the ferrell cats and mongoose got at them first unfortunately. If you hear a bang on the roof you now know what it is. One of their dogs came down to greet us one night, such an adorable dog (Pitbull I think). We pet her until she went to sleep and she just laid outside on the grass with a big smile on her face. So cute! There is another cottage on the property which you may also be able to rent if you have extra family or friends. It is well hidden from the Cabana. The hot tub was very clean and was amazing for after our hikes, the abundance of windows made it feel and sound like were were sleeping in the jungle, a couple of geckos were inside which comforted us knowing they will eat any insects - which we never came across once in the Cabana unlike all of our other places. This place was so tidy and clean! The bed was also amazingly comfortable, great sleeps! Watch out entering the property as you will bottom your vehicle out on the first turn going to the main house (we had a Mustang), enter on an angle & go slow, than you will be fine. We were just down the road from the black sand beach and blowhole, and not far from everything else in Hana and past.
I wish we could have stayed longer than 2 nights, we will DEFINITELY be back without a doubt!
Thanks for letting us stay at your beautiful Hana Cabana, I would not stay elsewhere!

“A Splendid Place to Stay in Hana”
Reviewed 5 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

The Hana Cabana is a great place to stay. We booked at the Hana Cabana to celebrate our 25th anniversary and we could not have chosen a better place to stay. It was everything we were looking for. We had visited Maui a few years ago staying in Lahinia and did the day drive to Hana and decided the next time we go to Maui we wanted to stay in Hana. So in searching for a recommendation I found the Hana Cabana on TripAdvisor, read the reviews and then contacted Rebecca to confirm availability. Rebecca responded quickly, was very friendly and made the transaction very easy. She followed up with email confirmation and details about the Cabana, check-in, check-out and easy to follow directions. We booked the stay in August for a 6 night stay in January. (I recommend booking early.)

When we arrived we were greeted at Rebecca’s house and then went on to the Cabana which is located on her property which is nestled in a secluded spot on her beautiful flower farm. The cabana is very simple, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen is completely equipped and there is a gas grill on the porch (great for grilling a nice steak!). It even has a car port. There are no curtains and you don’t need any. It is very private and from inside looking out all you can see are beautiful landscaping of trees, palms, and exotic flowers. It has a wonderful front porch with a hot tub that is also a very nice feature. We enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub in the beautiful surrounding views; which include a view of the Ocean in the day time. At night it is very dark, no street lights, and on clear nights the stars in the sky are amazing. You can actually see them from the Hot tub on the porch and from laying on the bed looking out the window.

The first couple of days of our stay it rained and rained and rained. At first we were a little disappointed with the weather. However, the rain actually was a nice added bonus. The rain actually forced us to spend a couple days really “resting and relaxing” which is something we were looking for but, often have trouble doing when we travel. My wife and I liked sleeping while listening to the rain on the roof and through open windows. The hot tub is on a covered porch so we could relax in the tub, sipping an adult beverage and watch the rain. Rebecca has stocked the Cabana with a 1000 piece puzzle which my wife drug out and we spent time putting the puzzle together; something we have not done since we dated more than 25 years ago!

We did have a few days of beautiful sunshine that allowed plenty of time to explore Hana and the surrounding area. The Hana Cabana is located just a short distance from “downtown” Hana. Perfect actually, if you are looking for peace and quiet, few people and great base location to see the surrounding sites and convenient access to the couple general stores or restaurants in Hana.

We highly recommend Hana Cabana to any couple that is looking for a peaceful, relaxing Maui vacation.

“Solitude Situated at a Flower Farm”
Reviewed 1 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

people found this review helpful

Quiet chirping of geckos, rustling wind in the trees, the tinkling of rain on the metal roof, the ocean waves crashing on the shore from far away, the startling thud of a giant avocado as it smacks against the ground! This darling beautifully situated cottage located in the middle of a flower farm is the prefect place to stay if you seek quiet and comfortable relaxation. The owners are wonderful letting us share in the bounty of their farm. Guacamole for dinner from an avocado next to the cottage- perfection with a bag of Hawaiian chips! Hot tub on the deck that we used twice a day, located near beautiful spots to hike at the end of the Hana Highway, get up early in the morning and visit before everyone else gets there. Photographers paradise!

“Enchanted Paradise”
Reviewed 22 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

This place is magical! If you are looking for an incredibly laid back Hawaiin jungle-safarian experience, this place will blow your mind. It's a one of a kind experience. The hosts are a class act. Nothing but first class chillness. The Hana Cabana had the most spectacular views of stars at night. Unreal!

“Absolutely nails the Hana experience! Highlight of my trip.”
Reviewed 1 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

I loved this place. I don't think I've every ranked a lodging option as "excellent" before but I really was impressed by this place. It's about 8 min. before you get to the actual town of Hana and I think it's a far better option because it nails the "off the grid" feeling you may be looking for in Hana. It's in the middle of a manicured section of jungle so you see tons of birds, fruits, & flowers and you also do have a long distance view of the ocean. Where else could you say you could see all of that from your private hot tub?!? The house was quaint but provided you with the essentials. Also the gas grill came in handy since the dinner options in Hana are poor. The bed was super comfy. You will see some geckos in the house, they never bothered us at all but I guess some people wouldn't like it, to be honest I thought they were a plus since they eat mosquitos. Beach towels were provided which was nice because the sand at Hamoa beach was really sticky and re-packing our own towels would have gotten messy if we had to use them. Lastly, if you have low riding rental car (like I did) take it very slow, I did bottom out pretty badly 2 times on my first trip in.
