Overview

About the property

House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Aloha! Welcome to Bayhouse Hana. Our one-bedroom 'Iwa Suite', with eight hundred thirty two square feet of floor space, overlooks beautiful Hana Bay. There is a queen size bed in the bedroom; the bathroom is accessible through the bedroom. A panoramic view of the bay is offered from the spacious charm of the living room and dining area; an alcove just off this area accommodates an additional two individuals on twin beds, making the unit ideal for a family of four. Bayhouse Hana has a fully furnished kitchenette that opens into the living room - dining area and enjoys the same views.At Bayhouse Hana, you'll enjoy all the wonders of the oceanside experience in complete comfort. We have chosen to exclude television in our suite, but we do provide WiFi access. * NOTE: The quoted basic rate is for a party of two; there will be an adjustment made in the quote to reflect any additional people in your party.

We advise our guests that we do not use toxic insecticides or pesticides on the property. As in all tropical settings, there are insects in Hana. Roaches are attracted to food and drink left out. Our mitigating strategy and advice to our guests is to seal all food containers and clean up thoroughly after meals. This strategy brings good results and prevents exposure to toxins for our guests and ourselves.

The sandy beach of Hana Bay is a very short stroll away. Our peaceful town has two grocery stores, a post office, a gas station and three eateries among its businesses. All are within reasonable walking distance. But if you are looking for the glitz and glitter of night club or shopping malls, this is not the end of the island for you.

In the surrounding areas lie the Haleakala National Park at Ohe'o ( a swimming, hiking and camping idyll), and Kahanu Garden, part of the National Tropical Botanical Garden, home of the ancient Pi'ilanihale Heiau, largest Hawaiian temple site; the garden boasts the largest collection of varieties of breadfruit trees in the world, among other native, tropical and exotic botanical specimens.

We are on the east tip of Maui, our sunrises are magic and our evening afterglows are quite lengthy because they start before sunset, thanks to Haleakala, our resident mountain, 'home of the sun'. We get to see the sun going home for the night after a long day crossing the sky.

Looking out to sea, don't be surprised if you happen to spot a whale or two or an entire pod breaching, spouting and splashing just outside the bay; that would be between October and March. Or you may spot a sea turtle cruising along the shoreline scouring the rocks for its favorite seaweed.

If you're not a visual type, just kick back and enjoy the sounds and smells of the peaceful Pacific.

E malama pono! (take good care)

About Bayhouse Hana

William Chang and Anita Bisquera-Chang are the owners/managers of Bayhouse Hana. They are artist-farmers residing in the community. Bayhouse Hana is a family project that was started in the mid 70s; Bill has added some features and renovated the building in recent years.

Why Bayhouse Hana chose Hāna

Bayhouse Hana was originally built in 1975, one of the first vacation rentals in the community. It is built on family land that was acquired some four generations back. The Iwa Suite on the ground level has been completely renovated and placed back into service. *The second floor is currently being renovated; as Bill does this work only when there are no guests in residence, though we don't have a completion date scheduled. the upstairs unit may go into operation by mid-year 2017. We will post a notice here at the appropriate time.

The location of Bayhouse Hana is ideal for its purpose. The views are fabulous and the setting is so peaceful... and you don't have far to go for anything. That is why we say it's away from it all and in the middle of things at the same time; you get the best of both.

What makes this house unique

At Bayhouse Hana you're in the middle of town and away from it all at the same time. The suite focuses on the ocean views and sounds; the house is designed to shield you from the road traffic and neighboring dwellings, it's very private but it's not isolated. You are in walking distance to all the amenities of the central town area, stores, post office, community center, snack shop, restaurant and more. The sandy beach at Hana Bay is just a short stroll down the road. Most community events are held either at the Community Hall at the Bay or in the Ball Park next to the Community Center just up the hill; both a short wall away.

Great Location and Views!

  • 3 of 5

The views and sound of the waves crashing on the rocks below are worth every penny of the rental price. The term "bayhouse" in Hawaii must be the same as a "camp" in Louisiana. The place is rustic. There was good communication with the owners and check-in/out was easy. I would definitely give this place another star if it had a porch. We could access the terrific views only from one of the windows or looking through a wire fence in the small yard. The owners are anti-pesticide, so expect caravans of small black ants in the kitchen and bathroom. The trip to Hana was hectic and crowded whereas the drive back was much more enjoyable. I definitely encourage you to stay overnight if you can.

Owner's Response: Yes we see how a porch would be a nice feature, but being so close to the ocean, it would be a nightmare to maintain; in fact, the entire living room/dining area was an open lanai initially. It serves us better enclosed. The ant problem spikes in the drier months because they are looking for water. We provide a peppermint spritzer to spray around the sinks in the kitchen and bathroom for such times; the ants do not come around when they smell the peppermint; there are other scents that work as well.

Gorgeous location in a piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

I wish I lived in Hana, and specifically in this house. We stayed here for 2 nights on our first trip to Hana. It is so close to the ocean, that at night time we would sleep with the windows open to hear the crashing of the waves on the shore. The gentle sound of the waves further enhances the overall magic of Hana. I would 1000% stay here again!

Suitable

  • 3 of 5

Bayhouse does have a beautiful view of the bay located close to the rocky shore and we walked couple blocks to access the sandy public beach. I appreciated getting a text from the owners letting us know where to get groceries and hours of operation in case we wanted to cook dinner on the one night of our stay. But we (2 adults) were too tired after the drive to Hana so we treated ourselves to a dinner at the Travaasa Hotel an easy walk. When pulling up to the house we were taken aback because it seemed the second floor was in the midst of construction since a portion was covered in tarp and a hole was cut for a window. We stayed in the lower unit and they are separate apartments. There was no active work while we were there but I suggest that the owner might want to give a heads up about the condition of the property to avoid this situation. Note, another review mentions the construction but that review was posted after I had put down a deposit on my stay. We found the comfort of the lower apartment was satisfactory and clean.
