Far from the crowds and Condos... Far from the noise and tourist traps... There is the old Hawaii of HANA, a small community overlooking beautiful Hana Bay on the windward east end of Maui. Hana is cooled by the trade winds that blow across the Pacific and nourish us with evening showers that make this part of Maui lush and tropical.

As you travel the magical 'road to Hana' you leave the real world behind and slowly enter the land of old Hawaii, with waterfalls, majestic coastal views and jungle rain forests. By the time you arrive in Hana you will sense a slight change. You will feel a slower pace, more peaceful and quiet.

As you follow the private drive through the tropical flower garden to our secluded Tradewinds Cottage, you will discover the Hawaii that you came to see.

Our two bedroom, one bath cottage has just been beautifully remodeled. It features a full kitchen with granite countertops, a gas range, microwave and coffee maker. The cottage has a queen size bed and two twin beds. It has satellite TV, DVD player, plus wireless internet access.

This vacation rental is fully permitted. Permit #STHA 2018/0001, SUP2 2012/0034

**NOTE: There is no longer a hot tub at this cottage. You may see the hot tub mentioned in reviews but it was removed during the recent remodel.

It’s very nice, but not for longer stay. There are not dishwashers and washing machine

This cottage was so sweet to arrive to after a long day of adventure. The pictures match reality perfectly. Very clean, updated, and maintained well. Perfect for our quick getaway.

The cottage was a peaceful place for our family of four to explore the Hana area for a few days. The setting was beautiful, we enjoyed the outdoor deck and cozy living room. I think the place could benefit from a few family games and books to browse, and the kitchen was a little sparse in terms of spices and cookware/dishware compared to other places we've stayed, but overall a lovely spot and home. Thank you!

Spotlessly clean and well appointed two bedroom cottage set in a spectacular rain forest full of exotic beauty. This listing exceeded our expectation and just getting there, the twisty Hana road is only the start of the adventure. Friendly locals and amazing food trucks. Highly recommend it if you’ll be staying in Hana.

The cottage was a wonderful spot to experience Hana. It is private and a little outside of town, but close to everything. I loved sitting out on the covered porch in the mornings and evenings, listening to all the sounds and feeling the air. The surrounding trees and growth of the jungle was a magical setting for someone from the desert.

Nice place to stay , the pizza place right around the corner is a great spot for lunch or dinner , and the branch to bar chocolate store is a must stop, lava tubd are close.

Wonderful getaway cottage, felt like we were isolated, but actually close to the main road and the amenities of Hana. Loved the outdoor front porch. Nice kitchen with lots of counter space. Bedrooms and bathroom are updated, clean, and comfortable. Internet wasn't working when we arrived, but a hard reset of the router fixed it - good signal thereafter. Could use a little more seating in the living room for watching TV, but that's a minor suggestions. Thanks for the great stay - will definitely think of the cottage again in the future. Oh also, would be good for future guests to know that the road down to the cottage could be muddy in rainy weather. An SUV or other car with all wheel drive might be better to drive in.

Was easy to find and close to Hana. Updated cottage - very nice! Was a great place to stay for a couple nights while visiting Hana. Enjoyed all the plants and flowers on the property!

Enjoyed the lush grounds and covered porch. This was the quietest place I've ever stayed out Hana way. There were no barking dogs, crowing roosters, traffic noise! Very clean.

We loved staying at this cottage! It is beautiful and we felt like the rest of the world was miles away. Kitchen was nicely equipped, host communication was excellent and after a long drive on the road to Hana, this was just what we needed. Dont be concerned about no air conditioner.I have health issues and the fans provides cooled the cottage nicely, so much so that I needed to grab the blanket from the closet in the middle of the night. We stayed two nights and when we return to Maui, will book again. Highly recommend!

Only problem was broken DVD player. No cookie sheet but we did ok with the pizza tray. Very clean and quiet

Feels like another world. Getting to the Hana area isn’t an easy drive but it’s worth it. The house is remodeled and has pretty much everything. Note there isn’t a washing/dryer and there’s no laundromat in town so plan accordingly. Also you won’t have cell reception for much of the drive so make sure to download your checkin information ahead of time. I didn’t remember this part so we drove a bit further until we had a signal and got the info. Easy checkin once I had my info. There is internet which works pretty well but not for streaming. They have satellite TV though so you can watch Netflix/etc if you want. We did watch some TV and it worked reasonably well… some buffering but no big deal. Note also there’s no air conditioning but we didn’t feel like we needed it as we kept the windows open and the screens are in good condition. We’d stay again. The Hana area is a special place. Thanks!

The location is honestly surreal. Some of the most stunning trees you’ll see as long as you live right in your backyard. It’s very impressive that the host managed to set up high speed wifi co side ring the area. Host was very chill and easy to rent from. Can’t go wrong



November 2023
Nice, up to date cottage. Very quiet and relaxing yet close to Hana


Brenda F.

Cute, updated cottage amongst the Tropicals. The only drawback for us was there was no air conditioning, but it was still a very enjoyable stay.


Tina K.

The vegetation was lush and green. Beautiful and admirable. Kitchen was well equipped. Bedrooms were just right for the 4 of us.

Hana is an amazing place. This residence met our needs and was in a beautiful tropical forest. It was a little warm but we cooled it down with the fans.

This property was outstanding! Very modern in a beautiful setting! I wish we could have stayed longer! I would highly recommend staying here. It was nice to be away from the crowds and this was a perfect place to get away from it all. Next time we visit Maui I will stay here again, only longer.

We were satisfied with our stay here. No problems at all! If we ever come back to Hana, we would stay here again 😁🌺


Michael W.
July 2023
We loved the experience of staying in the cottage. No A/C, just open windows which allowed us to wake up to the sounds of the birds, rain and the trees rustling. Not to mention the wonderful smells of the early morning. We would love to stay here again!

We had a great, 3-night stay at this property. The property is very near the airport, about a 10-min drive from Hana and 5 minute drive from Waiʻānapanapa State Park. The house is in great shape and has been recently remodeled. There is a beautiful, large deck that is completely surrounded by tropical plants and huge trees. The deck is covered and provides a great place to eat even in the rain. The lack of air conditioning did make for hot nights, but the owners provide a number of fans to keep the air moving. Make sure and bring plenty of your own cooking supplies if you intend to cook. The house has ample pots and pans, but few standard cooking supplies (e.g. salt, pepper, oil, etc.). Thanks for a great stay - we really enjoyed the place!


Megan S.
July 2023
We enjoyed our stay! The surrounding area is beautiful and perfect for relaxing after busy Kihei. The space is simple, spacious and very comfortable. We felt at home. The only draw back was the lack of washer and dryer, but that proved to be less of a problem then we anticipated. We would definitely rebook!

We stayed here for 2 days while we explored Hana - I am so happy we found this place. It was hidden away in a tropical paradise - but easy to get out and explore Hana. We loved our evening walks and talking to the local farmers, buying fruit off of the stands, seeing the Hana Lava Caves (bring cash!), and hiking Oheo Gulch in the national park. This location was charming and had all of the perks of home. We loved our time here!

My family loved our stay here! We loved the proximity to Black Sand Beach, as well as being pretty close to Pipiwai Trail so we could get an early start on our hike. We loved everything and will be sure to stay here again on our next visit! Highly recommend!

The Good: Secluded and very private. The Bad: No grill, no washer & dryer and the shower head is very low for anyone over 6 foot tall. The Ugly: No pizza pan, nor pizza cutter. :( Overall, not bad. We’ve stayed at many VRBO properties across the U.S., and for the price we have high expectations.

Such a great place for a short stay in Hāna! Everything was super clean and with the windows open, the home stayed cool enough to be comfortable.

If you are planning a trip to Hana and looking for a place to stay, this is the one! We thoroughly enjoyed it. And it's in good proximity to great hikes and beaches! Mahalo

I really wanted to do the road to Hana but knew with my 2 kids and mildly car sick spouse there and back in one day would be a nightmare. This place is so close to the black sand beach (2 mins). It was so clean, convenient and allowed us to really soak up Hana. I’m so glad we stayed!! The house was so easy, clean and met all of our needs! Thank you!


Becky B.
April 2023
The property was just as listed. It was clean, had plenty of kitchen items for cooking, the host was responsive, and the property was beautiful! We stayed in mid-March and it was warm! Not having air conditioning was a bummer but tolerable even at night.

This is a great place to stay in Hana! It feels remote while still very close to everything in Hana. I loved waking up and having my coffee on the porch, surrounded by the lush jungle plants. The cottage is clean and has everything you would need. Very seamless check-in process. It was the highlight of our trip.


Lauren A.
March 2023
Very close to town, reasonably priced and very comfortable home! The only thing that would have made it better would have been having a grill. Lovely place! Definitely recommend



March 2023
We had a great time at this home in Hana. It was a very peaceful home and location was perfect for our planned hikes and adventures!

The house was very nice. Extremely clean and had everything that we needed. The plants and trees around the house were very beautiful and we felt like we were in the middle of the jungle! Also conveniently close to the black sand beach.

We stay four nights. Excellent location when staying in the Hana area. Rental had all the correct and needed items as listed in the property description. As with a lot of Hawaii properties that we've used the Wifi connection most of the time didn't work well. Either no connection or very slow at times. This was the only draw back.


Jaclynn O.
February 2023
Lovely cottage in Hana. You are surrounded by beautiful tropical plants, song birds in the morning, gentle rain. Close to Hana town and Waianapanapa State Park and the Pipi Wai trail in Haleakala State Park. Fresh fruit stands abound, food trucks and several great restaurants. We loved the setting, used to have family there, so it felt like home.


Philip B.

Great location along the Hana Hwy. it is situated in a beautiful jungle and has a well stocked kitchen of tools. It is quite spacious and good for up to 4 people. The WiFi is slow and spotty.

Great location. Lovely property surrounded by lush Hana vegetation! The home is very clean and well appointed. Great place to stay if you want a few days to explore Hana.



November 2022
This was a great cottage for 4 adults. Great kitchen for cooking, remodeled bathroom with good shower. Comfortable living room area and beds. Nice covered deck out side that was not buggy at all. Lots of privacy and very quiet. Close to Wainapanapa park.


Jill M.
November 2022
Check-in and communication were great. The property was comfortable — best shower ever! I slept better than I had for our whole vacation and maybe for months. We are people used to air conditioning. The hosts are exactly right that you don’t need it at this rental! We had a couple of visits from well-behaved pigs and mongooses, so that was charming too. A great visit in a great location — just minutes from the black sand beach.


David L.
November 2022
Great location for fully enjoying the Hana area. Overall great spot, clean with adequately stocked kitchen. No A/C but not needed, at least not for our stay.


Howard B.
November 2022
If you want to feel like you've got a quiet hiding spot in the woods, this is a good spot. Lots of natural beauty around this unit. The unit is well maintained with a nicely remodeled bathroom and kitchen. You're going to have to deal with some bugs (I got stung by a scorpion or centipede just off the lanai), but you're in the woods so this is to be expected. On muggy nights for those of us who are spoiled by air conditioning, this might be a bit of an adjustment. But the unit is exactly as described and shown, and clearly well maintained. The owner is very friendly.


Devashree C.

We stayed for 2 nights with my husband and mother-in-law. We loved the place. The cottage is surrounded by beautiful tree and it was very peaceful. The location is also close to the Black sand beach state park and Lava Tube.


Uncle L.
November 2022
Had our second chance to visit Maui and this time we brought the kids. We thought we'd be a little more than adventurous and bring them to Hana. Grabbing this spot for a couple nights was the best idea we had. It was a perfect way to take our time out to Hana, check out the black sand beaches, state parks, lava tunnels and tropical gardens with our daughters and not feel rushed.


Capri J.
November 2022
We enjoyed our visit to Hana and this location was just perfect for enjoying the state park, Botanical Gardens, and Lava Tubes. We visited family in the area and it was a perfect landing spot.



November 2022
From the booking process, to the check in process, to the start itself, all communication was quick and friendly. The cottage is adorable and just what we needed. Lots of amenities like beach towels and chairs, spices in the kitchen, toiletries in the bathroom. It was such a quiet location, with the only sounds being the birds in the trees. Loved the fresh lilikoi dropping off the trees! Thank you for a very enjoyable stay!

This rainforest cabin was very nice, well appointed, and remodeled. The grounds are very well kept with beautiful flowers. There are insects outside as you would expect but none inside. The location is quiet and next to all Hana amenities.

We stayed at the property for 7 days. The beds were comfortable but the rest of the furniture was not. I would have appreciated a lounge chair. And it’s in the jungle. Bring bug spray.


Kelly V.
August 2022
Great cottage, clean, secluded, updated kitchen and bath. Covered porch is nice. View is tropical forest, close to Hana farms for food options. It was unseasonably hot during our stay so AC or additional ceiling fans in Master and porch would have been nice but thats our only small issue. I would highly recommend staying here!


Chris W.
July 2022
Great location near Volcano National Park. The house is set back in the woods and you feel like you are in the rainforest. The only downside of our July stay was the lack of Air Conditioning.


Chad G.
June 2022
Great location just outside of Hana. Allows you to break up the Road to Hana trip and be one of the first ones at O'heo Gulch. Beautiful setting for the property and all the amenities you could ask for. Our family of 4 really enjoyed it and the owner was very easy to deal with.

Really enjoyed our stay at Tradewinds Cottage. The property was clean and well provisioned. The location was perfect for exploring Hana. It is a very short drive to the black sand beach at Waiʻānapana State Park and to coffee and Banana Bread at Hana Farm. Overall, nothing but positive things to say about our experience here.

There are certain things that we look for when we consider our evaluation of a rental property. This property met and exceeded all of those criteria: 1. Pristinely clean 2. Great beds 3. Wonderful shower 4. Private, exotic location 5. Lovely Hawaiian-themed art We would stay here again and highly recommend this property. Also, our hostess allowed us to cance one of our nights due the the airline changing our tickets. We appreciated that flexibility SO MUCH!

This was a great place to stay when exploring the Hana area. The roads are curvy and narrow, but the drive there is definitely worth it. Incredibly beautiful area. Place was comfortable, clean and spacious , which we appreciated traveling with two teens. My son enjoyed exploring the large yard and I took pictures of all of the beautiful flowers. The only issues for us were the Wi-Fi wasn’t the best and there was no washer or dryer. Also, it would be nice to have a binder with info on eating options in the area and local attractions. In addition, there was no check out information that we could find so we just did the basics.

I would give this place 5 stars, but decided on 4 stars due 1) check in email was never sent so had to get last minute and came to find out the address is located on a different driveway, so unsure if it would have been more difficult to find if I didn’t know, 2) seemed like the place hadn’t been used so was a little musty and noticed throughout the stay (although provided bug candles) it swarmed with mosquitoes, so would recommended bug spray because I got ate alive 3) couch was comfier than beds and little chair in living room was awful to sit in… BUT despite those negatives the location is hidden in the jungle, private and a gives you a real Hana feel!

The house was all it was advertised to be. Except for the early morning rooster it was quiet and relaxing. It was easy to fine and conveniently located to Hana and hiking areas. We would stay here again.

Quiet, pleasant small house in the rainforest. About 3 miles out of Hana, near the airport, a CB perfect short commute to everything. Owner needs to add dishes and cutlery for ease of use of kitchen.

The Tradewinds Cottage is a beautiful cottage in a great location. It has everything you need. The only thing missing is A/C. This unit does NOT have A/C. This is much needed in Hana. The humidity is so bad it's difficult to sleep or just get comfortable in the humidity without A/C. Regarding the cleanliness. I believe they need a new housekeeper. The current one does NOT do a good job. The sheets were NOT clean. I found things on the sheets indicating they were not freshly cleaned/washed sheets. I had to wash them myself. The dishes needed to be washed thoroughly and counters cleaned properly. A new housekeeper is must.


Eric S.
September 2021
Our family loved this property and is one of the reasons we wished we stayed in Hana longer than we did. Very private and quiet, clean, and really nicely updated throughout. It gets hot inside, but there are multiple fans. It's in the middle of a jungle-like property so expect some little visitors (small lizards and garden spider during our visit), but it didn't bother us. This was an amazing visit and we would love to come back!!

Exactly as pictured. Very nice, peaceful. Would have brought in a few more groceries from paia to fit various dietary restrictions but had fun getting creative with options at general store and market in Hana, as well as road stands. We loved our stay here.

What a little gem! We loved everything about this cottage from the beautiful setting to the sea shell dishes. It was clean, quiet and just perfect. The only problem is that we got there, we wanted to stay longer!
