My husband and I spent a week at the Nona Lani Cottages. When I made the reservation, it stated "ocean view." We have stayed at places before that claim to have an ocean view and you have to look pretty hard to find the ocean. This was unbelievable! The beach was truly across the street and our view of the... More

Aloha to our newest friends from North Dakota! Mahalo for spending your vacation with us at the Nona Lani Cottages. Yes I have to agree that most places only have a "peek-a-boo" view of the ocean though they advertise "Ocean View".

We stayed for one week.. Stunning gardens, fruit trees and an abundance of birds. So peaceful and ideally located. Our deck was very private and we enjoyed every meal outside/great outdoor grill (be sure you have matches). We laid about in the yard on the loungers and read for days.. The location is ideal, across the street from sugar beach... More

A beautiful garden, just a few steps away from the beach and the ocean, in the heart of Maui, HI. Don't expect a top notch condo with all amenities you can think off. You will get a nice clean rustic cottage, with a good size living room, which you probably won't need at all, a bed room with plenty of... More

The cottages are nice and quiet, set among beautiful trees and flowers. There is beachfront access right across from the cottages and the owners are very nice. This was a great value for the money and very close to anything you might need in town. I would definitely rebook here.

I just returned from my 8th time staying at Nona Lani. It's terrific for me as it's quiet, no crowds, close to many golf courses, a terrific beach (not so much for swimming, though), great for catching the sunset, etc. You're basically getting a 1 bedroom, compact house with a full kitchen, A/C, cable TV (who watches TV while in...

If your perfect vacation is having your "home away from home," look no further…Nona Lani Cottages, located on the south shores of the wonderful island of Maui, has eight cozy cottages situated on more than two acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, including swaying coconut palms and fragrant flowering plants and tropical fruit trees.

Or if you are more of a tree lover, choose a garden view cottage. Or to mix things up, simply move a lounge chair or comfy hammock on the grounds to just sit back and relax in the shade or sunshine. The Kong family welcomes you to Maui! ... more   less
