Just returned from the most healing and restorative visit to Hana, Maui. We were lucky enough to spend a week in this lovely home with one of the most exquisite locations in Hawaii. This sounds like an exaggeration but it's not - this house sits on the coastal side of the Hana Highway and the living room and bedroom windows face directly east: framing the most beautiful sunrise in America. Each morning we could walk to Hamoa Beach (approximately 6 minutes away by foot) for a swim, a boogie, or a paddle; all the amazing hikes, pools, and falls were minutes away instead of hours. The location of this house allowed us to play pretty much everything by ear which is great when you are on vacation (especially with a group!).
As for the house itself, it's very well maintained. Susie, the caretaker, was kind and easy to interface with before and during our visit. I read a couple of reviews with negative comments about furniture/shower curtains/cleanliness and just have to say that the house was exceptionally clean and any grievances brought to the owners attention have clearly been addressed (and then some!).
Maintaining a house in the jungle on the Pacific must be a lot like painting the Golden Gate Bridge (i.e. never ending!) but this place is in great shape.
Hamoa Beach House really was the foundation for our incredibly special escape to Hana. I can't recommend it enough! And many thanks to Susie for making it all so easy!

Owner's Response: It is difficult to explain how the majestic beauty and healing nature of Hana can affect people so deeply, but it really does happen. Nature plays a huge part in that, but also, it's the conviction of the people here and the Aloha Spirit that makes the Hana experience even more special. This past week was Aloha Week in Hana, a time when the community comes together to celebrate the culture with a parade, talent show, hula dancing, cooking, lei and flower contests, Aloha shirt contest. It's all done in small town fashion, and each year it reminds us just how fortunate we are to be here.
Hamoa Beach House is the most wonderful place to experience Hana and old Hawaii.
