We really enjoyed our stay. We were looking for something different than a hotel. We wanted to experience old style Maui, and we found it here. The Location is wonderful in Kihei, close to some wonderful beaches including Kong Beach right across the street. It was about 150 feet from our Cottage to the beach. Wow. The views are wonderful....

I have noticed these cottages several times when visiting Kehei for vacation. Finally last year before leaving I checked them out, and this year made reservations for myself and two friends. We all slept comfortable in our own beds with plenty of room, a great full capability kitchen, fabulous lanai with ocean view. Now granted, it's on main street and... More

Nona Lani was recommended to me by friends who happened to leave right next door to the cottages. I was loking for a great location without costing me a fortune. I loved the idea of having my own full kitchen, patio, and view. From the minute I called to make the reservations, I was treated like family. When we showed... More

My partner and I stayed in Cabin 6 for 9 wonderful days. Staff were always friendly and helpful. We loved the Island feel of our cabin and grounds. Many fruit and flower trees fill the grounds and the smell of plumeria filled the air. We had gorgeous sunset views. Local birds were very tame and came to visit every morning.... More

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!

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.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. Enjoy whale watching in winter months and spectacular sunsets year round from one of our four ocean view cottages, which are just a few short steps from Maui's longest continuous white sand beach and picturesque Ma'alaea Bay. 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
