Hana Maui Accomodations
Hana's Tradewind Cottages - 1-800-327-8097 check online to book ahead or call them. they have two cabin style fully appointed homes a one and a two bedroom that will fit your needs. They are located away from the beach however they are in a tropical flower plantation. They both have outdoor private hot tubs with metal roof covering them. When it rains, and it will, the sound of the rain, the taste of the wine, the glow of the candle...need I say more! Great prices. Left at the Hana Airport Rd (Alalele) and look for signs on the left. Sorry no GPS.
Aloha Cottages - (808)248-8420 Located in central Hana and close to Hotel Hana Maui, Hana Ranch store, Hasagawa's, Hana Bay and Red Sand beach. Mrs Nakamura has clean and very inexpensive partial house rentals. We paid $90 for a night (2 people, 2beds, kitchen, bath, living room and wireless internet signal strong enough for a good connection if needed we were very pleased. Checkout is 10:45 and Online reviews say they don't put up with late checkouts. We left at 9am and had nothing but smiles from the Nakamura's...Aloha Hwy 360 will split just entering Hana into Hwy 31 and Uakea Rd. Go left onto Uakea Rd then right onto Keawa Place which is across from Hana Bay. go right between the 2nd and 3rd house where it says office. N20-45'20.0" W155-59'08.8"

Paniolo Lounge - Hotel Hana Maui. Open till 10pm for cocktails and serving pupu's till 9pm nightly. They had a great Hawaiian music trio on my Sept 06' visit.
Red Sand Beach - Only for the adventurous as you will have to cross Private land and slippery conditions! Bring a good towel as the "sand" is loose red volcanic cinder. Every time I go here I have encountered very interesting and harmless people with much aloha. Try the little lava tub where the ocean is separated from the calm water. I avoid the open ocean waters here due to rough conditions and rip tides! Hwy 360 will split just entering Hana into Hwy 31 and Uakea Rd. Go left onto Uakea Rd and continue until dead end. Turn around and park on street. Walk towards ocean thru the open field and go right thru the tall grass at one of the openings. continue towards the ocean and when you get to the path just above the ocean go left and continue untill dead end...You're there!
