Hale Huanani Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 16 Kihei B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 17, 2013

For the price, this offers great convenience and warm hospitality. It is not on the beach, but at a moderate elevation in a safe and attractive residential neighborhood called Maui Meadows.

The hosts reside on the second floor and guests are located in two studios below the hosts' home and in a separate cottage. The studios have a small kitchenette with good sized fridge and microwave.

There is no cook top in the kitchen. I spent a few minutes of confusion trying to figure out how to cook my breakfast eggs, but you can scramble eggs in a microwave if you require protein in your breakfast.

The layout of the studio would provide a couple with a nice separation of living, cooking, and bathing facilities. Closet space is good and there is ample hot water in the large shower. No tub. A guest laundry is available for personal items. There is no daily maid service, but there are plenty of fresh towels available in the linen closet if you want a daily change. Wifi is good.

The studios and the cottage share a lovely patio/garden space and access to a down-hill terraced garden with numerous fruit and nut trees. Each studio has at least one dining table and chairs. In this area, there is a mechanical marvel for cracking Macadamia nuts, a dvd and guidebook library, binders of current island information, and a bulletin board with current events.

I didn't pay much attention to the bulletin board at first because I'm so used to places with bulletin boards full of outdated materials, but this one is worth watching. Susan posts everything worth doing on the island.

As many others have mentioned, everything you might possibly need for excursions is available here--beach gear, ice chests, etc. Susan provides a good orientation on arrival and made several suggestions of things I didn't discover in my internet research.

My favorite among her suggestions was the Island Circle tour with Valley Isle Excursions. My other favorite was the Pacific Whale Foundation whale watch out of Ma'alaea Harbor. It's at the same location as the Maui Ocean Center. I bought a week pass to the Ocean Center and took the whale watch cruise twice. Loved every minute of both.

When you return from the Ocean Center on Kihei Rd Hwy 31, stop at the wildlife refuge on the right side of the road. The boardwalk leads to fantastic beach views. You can also access the headquarters of the refugue on Pi'ilani Hwy for an interesting view.

I stayed in the Niu studio. Although the two studios are mirror images, the Niu is a bit less attractive because the other studio has windows on two sides and a private dining table at the back of the guest patio. Niu studio is also below the kitchen of the hosts' living area and they do tend to drop things at odd hours.

All told, this is a fantastic bargain for a peaceful stay on a very expensive island. The property is clean, safe, and convenient. The hospitality is flawless.

We stayed here over the holidays, Dec. 26, for several days. This is a very nice place to set up base camp. We spent our days traveling to other parts of the island and then returned to the B&B each night. Access is quite easy and there is parking too. The room was immaculate, quite, except for the birds in the morning, but that was OK too. The family is very accommodating and helpful and they provide you with the little things that make your beach time quite pleasant. A very nice B&B and well worth the stay. My wife and I have stayed in B&B's all over the world and this one rates near the top.

Room Tip: It's a B&B we stayed in one of the rooms, but there is a cottage available.

We have just returned from our second stay at Hale Huanani in 12 months. Susan and Chuck have made this place a beautiful home away from home, providing everything you need for your stay. The first time we stayed we were in the Ma'ia Studio and this time the Cottage. They are both great, the cottage a little bit more private. The studios have just had the kitchens and bathrooms updated and look fantastic. I love the baked goods for breakfast and fruit from the garden. We will definetly be back.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great but go for the Cottage if you want a little more privacy.

This place was amazing and if you are going to Maui, this is the place to stay. I have special dietary needs and so we like to do a lot of our own cooking. There is a massive gas grill on the property and a beautifully stocked kitchen with granite countertops and stainless steel refrigerator. Susan had suggestions for things to do on the island and provided homemade bread/muffins with assorted fresh fruit for breakfast daily. There was a gallon jug of juice in the refrigerator and a big bowl of fresh macadamia nuts with a cracker outside our door. We had a little trouble with our TV and Chuck was right there taking care of it. The rooms are very well decorated and the tile in the bathroom was amazing. Love the open air jalousy windows (which might be why the. other person could hear everything the neighbors were saying). This had a very Hawaiian feel and it was interesting to see all of the fresh grown fruits on the property. Every conceivable amenity was available: plenty of towels for both home use and beach, beautiful bed linens, beach chairs, snorkel sets, washer and dryer, coolers, even frozen ice packs for inside the coolers, maps and much more. We would go back there just to stay in the B&B. Aloha!

Susan and Chuck have set the gold standard for traveler care and hospitality through Hale Huanani. Our 3-night stay at Hale Huanani was exemplary in every way possible. My wife and I were visiting Maui for our honeymoon, and we had a wonderful surprise awaiting us - a bottle of champagne with best wishes from Susan! I wholeheartedly endorse the reviews by Sunset_Sailor and Genmin - they have fully and accurately captured every detail of the stay. From the furnishings, to the hospitality and the breakfast - everything about this B&B is top notch and sets it apart from the rest. Hale Huanani will be my first choice of stay during future visits to Maui.

I stayed at Hale Huanani in the Mai'a studio and it was by far much nicer than many of the other hotels/condos that I have stayed at. It was clean (always a big plus) and tastefully furnished. They live in a quiet neighborhood and on some days, it was nice to come back to the studio to just sit, read and enjoy the peaceful environment. I enjoyed the breakfast each morning -- fresh fruit and baked goods - the mango bread was delicious! It's pretty cool that they get some of the fruit from their property - mango, banana, star fruit, papaya, just to name a few. Chuck & Susan provided a lot of extras that you don't find at other places - beach chairs, boogie boards, beach mats, POG in the fridge :) They truly know the meaning of aloha!

We stayed here for a week and it was wonderful. We got in and were pleasantly surprised that the unit we stayed in had just been updated. The owner greeted us and gave us a tour around. They are very nice and extremely helpful with giving ideas and tips. They post a board on the outside wall with activities, and restaurants. They really went out of their way to have everything you need. Our room was really nice. They have a pretty little kitchen and a beautiful new bathroom that they supplied with all the essentials. The bed was comfy and they have a nice little attached living room to relax. I loved the windows, we kept ours open all around and had the most wonderful breezes all day and night. The grounds are really beautiful, you can tell they put a lot of work into the garden and it is so quiet and private. It was wonderful to wake up to the birds chirping. They even have a little feeder to attract the parrots to come up to the covered porch. And a sweet little cat that is super friendly. Breakfast was served every morning, fresh banana bread, coconut muffins, macadamia pumpkin bread. They made the best breads and muffins in the morning served hot with a few different selections of fresh sliced fruit. They also leave you a gallon of POG juice in the fridge on your arrival as well as coffee and snacks. We had to leave early twice to get to an activity and they left breakfast in the fridge for us so we would have it when we got back which I thought was very nice since I really looked forward to it every morning. They even left us a nice note and a box of chocolate macadamia nuts when we left. They are also in a great location and neighborhood. Close to the beaches and an easy drive to anywhere on the island. They even have beach gear to borrow. We couldn't have been more happy with our stay at the hale huanani. I would highly recommend them. Oh and they had bowls of fresh macadamia nuts and neat little nut cracker, they thought of everything!
