Aloha & Welcome!
Nona Lani Cottages has been here since the 1970's, and remains genuine to its aloha spirit and Hawaiian style.
The property features eight cottages and three studios, set across two acres of lush greenery. We invite you to relax, soak up the sun, and admire the island views from your private plantation-style cottage. Enjoy outdoor barbecues, hammocks, and gazebos while you vacation with us.
Whether you choose an oceanview cottage or one that is tucked amid the trees, the beach is only twenty feet away, inviting you to dip your toes or stroll it's four miles of sandy beach.
World class restaurants, shops and the airport are within a short twenty minute drive from Nona Lani.
I’ve visited Maui for about the 10th time, always staying with family, however with COVID-19 that wasn’t an option so my partner and I decided to stay at Nona Lani Cottages. The funny thing is, it felt like I was staying with family by the end of it :) Staying in Nona Lani Cottages was amazing! We stayed in Cottage #5, one of the garden view cottages and it had everything a couple needed for a week of relaxation and exploration. Full kitchen, mirrors, bed, massive shower and bathroom, the lana’i (porch) was awesome for breakfasts, and it’s proximity to the beach is unbeatable. It’s located in the quieter area of Kihei, so at night if you leave your windows open, you can hear the waves crashing on the sand. I mentioned close proximity to the water, and I mean less than 30 seconds away. All we had to do was cross one street with our boogie boards and hit the waves just like that. And we even saw a turtle up close in the water, and whales off in the distance. And with the location being westward facing, the sunsets are remarkable! Also if you plan to snorkel - some of the best spots in Maui are literally 15 minutes away, which makes getting up in the morning to beat the crowds not too tough at all! The property itself is not what you expect if you’ve ever stayed on Maui or in Kihei before. Each of the 8 cottages are a good distance from each other, and this privacy is worth every cent. We stayed in another location on this same trip and the noise of neighbors above and next to us was unbearable. The cottages truly give you a place to recharge, find yourself, and relax. There are lounging chairs available to sunbathe on, picnic tables and bbq’s if you’re thinking of cooking some fresh fish outdoors, and beautiful gardens to look at local and native plant life! Also, depending on the season, fresh fruit might be available - our cottage had a banana tree that probably was going to be ripe in 2 weeks. Some other plus sides are the on site laundry facilities, outdoor shower on our cottage was awesome to rinse off the sand from the beach, and parking was right on site. I would equate staying here to staying at a home away from home. The people at Nona Lani Cottages treat you like family (and it’s family owned and operated for 50 years!), and so don’t hesitate to ask them any questions. I can’t imagine visiting Maui and staying anywhere but here when I’m not staying with my own family, because these people made us feel like family. Mahalo to Elena, Val, and of course Nona for making us feel at home!…
I love this place! Elena and Aisha were super helpful with making reservations and checking in. It’s run by a family , so a very different vibe than a resort. If you are all about resort , this might not be for you. It’s super chill and quaint with lots of personal touches. It was my birthday and I found a beautiful lei waiting for me in my room. We had a garden cottage - but every place there has an ocean view. The beach is just across the street. Wish we could have stayed longer, and will definitely stay here again when we return to Maui .
With everything going on in the world this destination was perfect for the soul. This beautiful place was built with love 50 years ago and it was truly felt. If you want to get away; alone, with someone special, a friend or throw a special wedding. This is the spot. The garden will keep you smiling and the beach accross the street will keep you dreaming, with a smile on your face. This is the destination of your dreams. The staff is always near by and each unit is a little home away from home. If you are not careful you will fall in love and never want to leave. Enjoy yourself when you get here. Aloha.
We stayed at Nonalani Cottages for our family staycation and it was truly one to be remembered. The cottages are beautifully updated. It was perfect for our family of 4, two children and 2 adults. It had AC in both the living room and bedroom along with ceiling fans to keep extra cool. The location is perfect! RIGHT ACROSS THE BEACH!!!! Literally a few steps away. We stayed up late at night to fish, watch our poles from our balcony, took the kids swimming during the day and walked back to the cottage for a nap. Sooo easy! Did I mention they also have an outdoor shower to rinse off at on the side of the cottage before you go inside, absolutely so convenient!! Especially with little children. There was also a BBQ grill right around the corner of our cottage, we got to cook some steaks and make s’mores with the kids while sitting under the stars enjoying the cool breeze. We could have not asked for a more better place to spend our getaway! The sunsets were out of this world beautiful and the evenings were just as gorgeous. We will definitely be spending more vacations here, it truly is an oasis for relaxing and enjoying family and the outdoors!…
Waking every morning was like opening a present to a beautiful day! Though listed as a garden-view cottage, the ocean and its sunset was beautifully seen from the porch. Ocean waters lapped sand over footprints on the beach just across the street. On our last evening there, a humpback whale and her calf lazed off shore as the sun dipped behind clouds silhouetted on the horizon. The kitchen met needs for easy meals. Dual heads in the shower was delightful!! The gardens were thoughtfully maintained. Soft, cool grass under bare feet is a thousand times better than a carpeted foyer! Our cottage also treated us to two original paintings by Nona, the proprietor. The warmth of aloha flowed as effortlessly from these as her handshake and embrace.
