This is the most wonderful place to stay. Nice cottages in a garden setting across from the ocean. Going to sleep listening to the wave hitting the beach is so relaxing. It is a beautiful and peaceful place to spend time. We would sit out on the lani each evening and reflex on our wonderful day on Maui. The cottages... More

This is exactly what I expected - older, classic Hawaiian cottages. Unfortunately we were is a "room", because a cottage wasn't available the entire time for us, we knew this in advance. Everything was fine and the room spacious. Being in the back, our room was very quiet, no road noise like the front cottages. The grounds were well kept... More

We will definitely be back here! My husband and I had a fabulous, relaxing time at Nona Lani Cottages. The grounds are beautiful and immaculate. The location is perfect, right across the street from the beach. We could actually see whales from our porch! The beds were comfortable and everyone was very friendly.

Our return to Nona Lani Cottages was fantastic! The grounds and location are the absolute best for a quiet, romantic, and private getaway. While some might consider the cottages dated, we can confirm that they have lost none of the charm we felt during our first visit in 1999. The beautiful gardens and landscaping capture the character of Maui in... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Nona Lani cottages during our recent vacation in Maui. These cottages are located in a beautiful garden just across the beach. We were impressed by the family run business. They make you feel at home while giving you the privacy you need. The highlight of our stay was Nona herself. If you take... More

I was fortunate enough to get a great little cottage, thanks to Bridget, who booked it for me. I found this to be the most ideal place to stay while I was on Maui this year for the holidays. (2 1/2 weeks) I have always gone to Maui during my "down times" but after about 15 yrs of Ka'annapali madness... More

It's nice to have your own place with no neighbor next door (in the next room). It's fairly plain and simple accommodations so if you're looking for the Taj Mahal you're looking in the wrong price. The view is great, with the sun setting directly off the porch. There is a good bit of space between each cottage and the... More

Close to the beach and nice garden but rather dated ( just as the histrionic old landlady).... Spotty towels, broken bulbs, outdated lounge chairs, no wifi in room etc. A place that was once pretty but that has become rather decrepit... Good for those who don't have high expectations or any kind of sophistication.,,

I found the Nona Lani Cottages by reading reviews on Trip Advisory of hotels in Lahaina. My husband and I have a 17 month old son, so I really wanted a place for him to be able to run around and not have a ton of people. We stayed in a beach cottage in Oahu in August 2013 and we... More

I was hoping for a different kind of place to stay away from touristy area's. The cottages were perfect. The beach directly across the street isn't very crowded and sometimes I was the only one there. There's a convenience store and bakery walking distance...I would just take an early morning walk to get the paper and baked good. The bus... 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
