No smoking. This is a quiet family property, No late night parties please. We have 2 medium size Pitt Bull dogs that are Very friendly family members. If you are afraid of dogs this might not be the right place for you because we have fenced the whole property so they don't need to be on a chain, therefore they have run of the property!!
Hale Moana was absolutely beautiful! Marla was such a wonderful host and we will miss her kindness and warmth. Frankie and Ulia added so much to the experience and were incredibly lovely. We cant wait to be back again and we definitely recommend a stay, you wont regret it! Thanks again Moana and Marla for letting us stay at your wonderful home, it really added to our experience in a positive way.

Marla was extremely welcoming. Loved the animals. The neighborhood is great... It was awesome being away from other tourists. Everything you could possibly need is provided. I hope to return
We absolutely LOVED our stay at Hale Moana. It was actually more breathtaking in person! Location is beautiful and very central to all we wanted to do in upcountry and the North Shore. Our host was friendly and attentive and loaded us up with fresh bananas, avocados, lemons and limes. And if you're wondering about the dogs, they are so great! Especially Ouila (sp?, pronounced Weela). She was the sweetest, gentlest dog we have ever known.
We enjoyed the home and surroundings so much that we lingered in the mornings and came back a little before sunset to enjoy the patio and peaceful atmosphere! The outside shower was a treat and the big sink outside to wash your dishes was very convenient. Inside the small home, some furnishings have been added and improved from the photos shone. There is a small table and chairs for dining, and a great credenza to put all your stuff on that also doubles as storage for your clothes. There is closet space and hangars, blow dryer and clothes iron. We hope to get the opportunity to return very soon!
Huset var nøjagtig som beskrevet og vist. Endda bedre. Et lille paradis. En fantastisk beliggenhed.
Vi følte os meget velkomne og nød vores 11 dage på Hale Moana i fulde drag. Det er rigtigt det er small but specially!! Vi elsker hunden Vila.
Hale Moana was just as described and perfectly lovely! Yes, there is a pup on the property and she WILL say hello but she was warm and friendly and never a nuisance. The horse is equally well-behaved. Haha. The space is just enough room for one person or a couple to comfortably share for a week or two, but it is light, airy and very clean and welcoming! Moana was away the week we stayed but her mother, Marla, was on the property and she was open, welcoming and helpful. She ensured we had everything we needed and welcomed us to stop by the main house with any questions, queries, or requests we might have. The main house is just steps away yet cottage is designed and positioned in such a way that privacy is still well-maintained. There was DEFINITELY attention to detail given to both the functional and aesthetic elements of this space. There was a bowl of fresh fruit waiting for us on the table the fridge offered a couple of bottles of water and couple of cans of locally-brewed beer. It is touches like this that keep me coming back to airbnb properties! Hale Moana is a drive away from the beach, stores, etc (rather than a walk out the door and put your toes in the sand kind of place) but the drive is short, easy and enjoyable. Hale Moana is a little, private get-away perfect for relaxing with the one you love most!
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Marla (Moana's mom) who was an amazing host. She was very accommodating, gave us advice and supplies. The property is beautiful and our favorite part was waking up to see what Franky ( the hourse) was up to. The cottage was nice and cozy and the outdoor shower was a treat. The location was a great launching pad for our days activities and we where always excited to get back. Thanks again Marla, you treated us like old friends and hope to see again.
We loved staying here. The surroundings were fantastic and the cottage was cozy. We got a surprise greeting from Frankie as we drove up. We were visited by the friendly dogs too, especially while sitting on the great little porch in the morning drinking fresh juice from the fruit trees. The outdoor shower was wonderful, especially at night. All the beach gear we could have wanted was right there too. We would definitely stay again!

Im a great host with lots of ideas to help you experience Maui weather you want a nice beach, waterfall, good place to eat.... i have surfboards, boogie boards, snorkels, lots of island toys!
