This is how I will remember Maui. Breakfast alone on the black sand beach.Swimming in a live aquarium at the red sand beach and eating Thai food from a food truck. Each unit is different but hopefully you find the peace and tranquility we did. Most units are fully equipped but

We stayed for two nights in unit 202 in early February and we were so glad that we were able to enjoy the grounds and the view at the Hana Kai. Despite very stormy weather, we were able to eat dinner on the lanai both nights and watched the storms roll in over the ocean.

Mahalo for staying with us and posting this review! Our beach is not your typical white sand beach. It is black sand/pebble/rock and it is gorgeous, untouched and desolate in many ways; and on a stormy day it's not unusual to see Kawaipapa river blast into the bay. The beach is made up of smooth river rock that has washed down the river and over time has become coarse sand. Unit #202 is a great unit (lofted oceanview studio), with a great view. Units 201 - 205 are upper floor units in our Mauka building. These units have vaulted ceilings and excellent views. We gratefully accept overnight bookings, but be forewarned, most people wish they had stayed longer. Leave your luggage and valuables in the room and really enjoy a full day in and around Hana. There is so much more to see besides the National Park (aka Seven Pools).

Our third time in Hana but our first time at Hana Kai Maui. What a beautiful and wonderful property. Well equipped condo and terrific staff at the property. Our family of four stayed in a studio unit that easily slept all of us. We stayed two nights and will stay longer next

This guest stayed in unit #202, our only lofted studio and the only studio that can accommodate 4 people. It is an upper floor unit in the Mauka building. Great view, great cathedral ceiling so the room feels very spacious. It also has 2 queen beds; one on the main floor and one in the loft. *NOTE* We do not recommend using the loft from June through October due to summer heat.

Second stay, excellently situated for ocean views and Hana activities. Structures exceptionally well maintained. Staff cheerful and helpful. Would not hesitate to return, a fine value for Hawaii and Hana.

Thank you for noticing our 'upkeep'. We work hard to maintain our beautiful oceanfront property and I love to hear compliments about our staff! In Hana, it's all about the simple things...a little Aloha goes a long way:)

We spent 3 very pleasant nights here. The location is tremendous with views along a black stone/sand beach. We had a smallish studio unit that was beautifully kept and very well equipped. Given the way Hana works we had a lunch out and about and then did some simple catering in

Thank you for noting our location, views and units. I am sorry you had a noise disturbance! We strongly encourage guests to contact us (before, during or after hours) with noise complaints. Hana Kai is a quiet and peaceful property. We welcome children, but occasionally have to remind parents to be respectful of other guests. Most often, they are understanding and quickly comply.

We do not have "roll-a-way" beds. Studio's only sleep 2 people, but the 1 bedroom units have either a hide-a-bed or a futon couch. We also have little fold up futons, but I don't recommend for adults. Susie Hana Kai Manager

The oceanfront units (#1 - #5) have a 180 degree view of the water. Our upper floor oceanview units are higher on the property and have a great view, looking over the roof of the Oceanfront building (units 201 - 207). 201 has the best view and as you get closer to the other end of the building you can see more of the roof (buildings are offset). Oceanview lower floor (#101-105) still have a great view with but can see more of the front building. Our partial oceanview units (#106 & #107) are the most economical units and they still have a few of the water and the black sand beach. Susie GM

The black sand beach in front of the hotel is great for exploring, but not great for swimming on most days. In order of proximity; Hana Bay (fine brown sand) is a 5 minute walk, Red Sands 10-15 minutes, Waianapanapa (famous black sand beach) is 2 miles to the north and Hamoa & Koki beaches are 2 miles to the south. That's it in a nutshell. They are all gorgeous, intimate (small) and unforgettable beaches. Susie GM

Aloha from Hana!, Normally sleeping in the loft in December is just fine. We do not recommend June through October. You may also want to consider a 1 bedroom unit. #201, 203 or 204 are all upper floor 1 bedroom units and the price is only $10-$20 more per night. Susie
