We just dropped in the day before hurricane Iselle arrived. We were so very welcome and well looked after that we were sad no to stay longer than one night right before our next flight. The cottages are very cosy and you really feel at home with a well equiped kitchen and clean and nice rooms. The beach and shopping... More

We cannot say enough about how welcome we felt on arriving, and during our stay here. We felt treated as family, and really appreciated the personal attention given to us by the owner and family. They remained open for us even though we arrived on the evening of hurricane Iselle, and with hurricane Julio coming right behind. We stayed for... More

Great location with ocean view from deck. Clean, quiet, well kept lawn, trees and flowers every where. These are individual cottages with kitchen, bath, living room and bedroom (with AC). Would stay here again. Verne and Anita Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

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.

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

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
