vacation rental description

You drive some two hours on the Hana Highway, one of the USA’s most renowned roads, crossing about sixty bridges as you wind along the scenic crags of Haleakala marveling at the waterfalls and looking down on the wide ocean. This spectacular journey takes you to the best place in the world, in our view. Our beaches—there are six of them, all quite different—are never crowded, our ocean and mountain views are everywhere superb, our people delightful, our rain forest is fascinating and our climate perfect. The spiritual feeling of old Hawai’i is hard to find nowadays, yet it permeates Hana, far from tourist hordes. But, if you are looking for a happy place to stay in Hana, you probably know all that already; and that a day trip is not enough. So here’s why to ring us to check out Kolea Cottage as your comfortable, competitively priced, Hana base for a few days or weeks.

Kolea, timber-built in 2003, is located a mile from Hana airport on the lower slopes of the 10,000 foot Mount Haleakala, surrounded by lawn carved out of the forest in a secluded corner of our fruit farm. Our 11-acre estate is bursting with flowers, fruit trees and tropical plants of many sorts. Guests are welcome to fruit from our trees, flowers from the garden and books from our library to read while listening to CDs of Hana musicians or the dawn and dusk bird chorus, enjoying the ocean view from the lanai.

Kolea’s principal bedroom has a queen bed, the second bedroom twin beds or king bed. Soft linen and towels are provided. Bathroom with tub. Covered lanai with seating. In total, 1,200 sq ft of comfortable home. The kitchen area, which has plenty of storage and a separate pantry, oven, microwave, blender, and ice-making fridge, is fully equipped with cooking and dining things. The washer and drier are in a closet off the lanai. Kolea has Time Warner cable connected to a 32” flat-screen color TV, CD/DVD player, telephone, internet and wi-fi. Any special requirements—give us a call and we will do our best.

We will on request provide snorkeling gear and beach towels, and we can guide you on the eating possibilities, hiking and many things to do around Hana, including special local events which are often not much publicized. None are more than a short drive away.

Kolea Cottage is named for the beautiful bird that owns the cottage lawn, otherwise known as the Hawaiian golden plover. You may meet her if you are here in the right season, for this remarkable navigator puts on her best plumage and departs in the spring to fly 3,000 miles across the ocean for a summer in Alaska, where she raises a family before returning accurately to our yard in the fall.

traveler reviews for this hana house rental

Great location

Review submitted: March 19, 2014   Date of arrival: February 23, 2014

We enjoyed our time in the Kolea Cottage. It was as described, clean, quiet, and a great location for day trips.

Pretty Good!

Review submitted: March 17, 2014   Date of arrival: March 4, 2014

Convenient to all the Hana sites, pretty nicely maintained, really nice owner. If you want a relaxing spot for Hana, this is a great choice. There are some bugs, but if bugs bother you, you probably should not come to Hana!

Owners response: She’s right. We live in a tropical rainforest, and bugs are prolific as you would expect, many rather beautiful including various beetles and spiders. They don’t bother us residents and they’re not a problem if simple precautions are taken like putting food away. We protect the house well, but in Hana it is impossible to keep all geckoes and tiny ants out. The home is fully screened in, and coils will defend the lanai. Though so far as we know there is no malaria or other mosquito-born disease in Maui, it may be wise to bring mosquito discouragement.

Perfect Family Vacation Rental

Review submitted: February 11, 2014   Date of arrival: January 31, 2014

Our family had a great time in Hana and this house was perfect for us. The pictures were pretty accurate. The owner was very nice and responsive to any questions or needs. We enjoyed the tour of his beautiful property. This house is very close to Black Sand Beach which our family loved exploring and great place to watch the sunrise. So many amazing places to explore in Hana!!
