The hosts, Mr. and Mrs. Nakamura are very sweet (though sometimes a little hard to reach by phone). Upon arrival, they gave us fresh picked bananas and papaya which was excellent. The location is excellent, walking distance to the beach. My sister and I stayed in cottage 73 which was downstairs with 2 twin beds and parking space right outside... More

Aloha Cottages are well maintained, but haven't had a facelift in many years. So expect almost every facility you could ask for (we had veranda, kitchen, dining area, sitting room area, microwave, hob, small oven etc etc) but some rust on metal fittings. The main areas seemed clean but there were cobwebs in the high shelf of the bedroom closet.... More

This place isn't romantic or trendy, but it's how real people, people who aren't wealthy live. We moved from Mrs. Nakamura's place to the Hana Maui after our reservations there began, but actually preferred the ambiance of Mrs. Nakamura's little place. We'd return any time.

We were lucky to find this place which is run by a old gentle couple. It's very close to Hana bay which has the old budget dinner option that's open post 7 PM! The place was clean & the only item my wife didn't like was the towels which were pretty hard. There's a close my Thai place which is... More

We luckily got in at the very last minute, the weekend of the East Maui Taro Fest. I called the number on a whim just to get a price for reference and they had a cancellation. Sweet! I put my credit card number down to hold the room, and you pay her cash when checking in at the office, which... More

I rated this poor because it was below average all things considered but I didn't dislike it. We stayed in the lower level of a building and had 4 single beds, table, stove/fridge, microwave. The place is very dated/circa 1960s. The chairs have been repaired with duct tape, bedspreads stained and worn, floor really scratched , chairs scratchy and sunken,... More

My wife and I just returned from a stay at the Aloha Cottages and were very pleased with the accommodations. We stayed at the larger cottage near the owners home and it was very clean and comfortable. TV, a cold fridge, small Hana Bay view, a vornado fan and lush tropical surroundings made for a perfect escape. All cooking necessities... More

This is a real dump. The place is dirty: Mildew and fungus everywhere. THICK black fungus all around the windows. Curtains are black with fungus. Floors were dirty.The place smells bad and musty. Toilet holder was very rusty! Everything looks like needs replacing or properly fixed.....and I mean properly fixed and NOT a bad band aid job! We stayed just... More

Pros: Very comfortable beds, cheap, room for 3 without surcharge, no cleaning fee, clean at first glance, nice location and view from upper unit, very close to ocean, sweet landlord, upon close inspection I found no dangerous looking spiders, bedbugs, or ants indoors, beautiful fruit plants everywhere. Cons: Wasp nest at entrance, 50 year old stove actually shorted and burned... More

Every time I go to Hana to get away, I always call Mrs. Nakamura to make reservation. Because they don't have an answering machine, the best time to call is in the morning, before 10:45, after that they are cleaning the houses. The houses are really simple but clean and every house has all what you need. They take the... More
