About Brook Starr, a Hawaii Licensed Realtor
Born and raised on Maui in the area known as 'upcountry', Hana is a place for us to visit and unwind, enjoy some surf on the unique black sand beaches, hiking the rugged terrain and reconnecting after a busy work week. We hope you can share in the experience as well.
Why Brook Starr, a Hawaii Licensed Realtor chose Hana
Surrounded by lush green trees in close proximity to town and beaches, immaculately clean and newly renovated, this house has become our home away from home. We love being with the family in Hana on weekends to play at the beach, surf together, enjoy Hana's quiet and beautiful surroundings to unwind and recharge. Hana has so much to offer from hiking and swimming to kayaking and snorkeling its an outdoor tourist's dream.
What makes this Cottage unique
After searching for some time, we saw this Hana Bay View property as the perfect opportunity and location to take in all that Hana has to offer. We gave the house some love and attention, renovated it and let it shine. We now want to share it with travelers from all over the world who want to experience Maui's East side beauty. Aloha!

Excellent place to stay
We loved this cute cottage! The location is great, it is clean, the AC in the bedroom allows you to sleep so comfortably, and there are beach chairs and towels for the beach. I also like the outdoor shower so we didn’t get the cottage dirty when we came back from the beach.
Perfect Location for Enjoying Hana
We stayed at this location for the second time and fully enjoyed our experience. This location is great location for access all of what Hana has to offer. This house is comfortable and has beautiful views of Hana Bay.
We're so happy to host wonderful returning guests like you Blake! Come back again anytime. Aloha
Great stay in Hana.
The most relaxing part of our vacation was staying in Hana. There was a minor issue upon check in and the property manager Sarah was on site within 10 minutes of calling to resolve the issue. 5 out of 5 stars from us.
Wonderful, quiet cottage with updated amenities
The road to Hana was beautiful but tiring so we were glad to have two nights in Hana.. This 1 bedroom cottage was updated, and had good amenities. It was secluded from the other units, and had a parking space. Wi-Fi was excellent and the cottage was spacious for two people. We'd stay here again and recommend it for a quiet couple looking for a leisurely, laid back visit to the Hana area. We really appreciated the advice to print out the instructions in advance so that we knew how to enter via the electronic key lock and had pictures of the entrance of the property so we could find it from the road. In summary, this cottage made our time in Hana a perfect and leisurely experience!
Loved our stay here.
Very clean. Updated unit. Nice outdoor shower and nice bathroom. They provided beach chairs, umbrella, beach towels, boogie boards. Check out process was easy. They also provided Costco sized shampoo, conditioner, lotion, etc. Close to all the things we wanted to do.
Lovely house in Hana
Loved our stay. Beautiful view of the ocean, close to everything and great facilities! Would recommend this home to everyone!
Our home is located in the rural town of Hana, on the East side of Maui. There are beautiful beaches nearby, including Hana Bay, a 10 minute walk away, and Hamoa Beach, a 10 minute drive down the road, consistently named one of the most beautiful beaches in America, where we like to spend our time surfing, swimming with the kids, and lounging under the shady trees.
Lots of hiking to see waterfalls and swimming in fresh water pools, including Oheo (Seven Sacred Pools) that is part of the U.S. National Park Service and Waianapanapa State Park that has a cool volcanic grotto you can swim in, a black sand beach, and a blow hole along the coastline.
Or just relax on the covered deck, play some cards, board games, read a book, or enjoy a movie or two via the wireless internet on your computer or tablet.
There are many mom and pop places to eat, including a bright orange burrito food truck right in town with great burritos, coffee and pastries that is owned/operated by Andy and Tuna, a brick oven pizza place, Thai food stop, other 'plate lunch' stops, and fresh organic fruit and veggie stands where much of the food is grown organically right here in Hana.
There are two main general stores in town to get most of your basic necessities. If you want a large variety of food to choose from though it may be wise to get some provisions from the main part of the island before you head out to Hana. Our favorite food store on the island is Mana Foods, in the town of Pa'ia on the North Shore, where they're loaded with fresh, natural and organic grocery shopping, a deli, bakery and vitamin room. Although, we also frequent Hasegawa's General Store and the Hana Ranch Store in town during our stays.
The road out to Hana itself is half the treat, with dramatic scenery of the cliff-lined coastline, a couple of fruit stands (including a mobile creperie along the road in the jungle as you begin your journey!), and lots of hikes from trail heads off the road. As with any adventuring please be cautious and aware of your surroundings and weather conditions while enjoying the outdoors.
A tip for the drive out to Hana, pack a lunch with snacks and drinks, don't rush it, and pull over for faster drivers if they come up behind you. There are many pull-out spots, the drivers behind you will appreciate it, and you can relax and really soak in the beauty.
There is one gas station in Hana town, and none along the 2-hour drive from the main towns on the other side of the island, so fill up before you get here.
Hana is a tropical paradise, which means it has little critters like mosquitoes or ants at times, and don't be surprised by the odd chicken or two, mongoose, (cows, there's a beautiful working cattle ranch) or other wildlife in an around Hana town and the East side of the island. Our home is usually nice and breezy, and we have quarterly treatments of the outside and inside of the home with natural repellents, so there should be little activity of small critters, however, closing screen doors and cleaning up food after eating is always a good idea. We have some mosquito repellent there if you need it, just in case. And if you have any problems please let us know.
Our location is very convenient to the beaches, sites and stops in Hana, with great views, and as can be seen from the photos and mapping, we are in a residential setting. There can be some typical neighborhood activity including traffic on Hana highway, neighboring pets / dogs occasionally barking or local chickens that roam freely. We have a large redwood fence along the rural road and plantings around the property to make you feel tucked away. Feel free to get in touch with me to answer any questions you may have.
The 1br/1ba rental rate is $199 US/night, a one-time cleaning fee of $55 plus taxes and fees, which you can reserve yourself online. Maximum number of guests is 2.
The maximum number of guests we may have on the property is 6, if you have additional members in your party please call or email us, we can refer you to additional rentals in the immediate area to accommodate everyone.
We hope you enjoy your stay!!!
