We stayed 10 days at end of January, 2017. The Nona Lani cabins are definitely old style, but generally have been well-maintained, and are quaint and cozy, The front cabins have a great deck view of Ma'alea Bay over the beach dune, but also receive traffic noise from the shore secondary road, though the rear bedroom is less affected. As...

I stayed here with my Mom when I went to Maui for my son's wedding. This is a beautiful place to stay. Peaceful and quiet. Very traditional setting. Close to beach and shopping. The family that owns Nona Lani Cottages is wonderful! I will definitely be going back!

We stayed in the main house in one of the studios. The room and grounds were clean. There is no towel service so if you're staying for an extended amount of time, there is a laundry area available. If you're like us and just needed to place to sleep at night, this will suit you fine.

We stayed here over Christmas weekend and were very pleased with our cottage. It was the closest to the road but the noise was not much of an issue at night. It can get very windy but we ate most of our meals on the porch enjoying the view of the bay and surrounding islands anyway. The staff was very...

Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review! I am glad you found the property conveniently located to conveniences and attractions.

We had a suite as opposed to a separate cottage but we were very happy with the room. The beach on the ocean is right across the street where we watched the sunset and the stars come out on our first night there. There is not a lot to do right around there but we had a rental car and...

We loved our stay this past June at the cottages. It was everything we expected. There are 8 cottages set among beautiful floral and fruit trees. It was like being in a Botanical Garden. We stayed in one of the front cottages overlooking the ocean that had a great deck for viewing along with a sliding glass door that enabled...

We were expecting the cottages to look a little older, however it seems that no upgrades and repairs have been done for ages… The mattress was not comfortable as well which was an issue. Cleanliness was also a concern, as there were several dead cockroaches in the kitchen, and there was a staleness in the air. And being right of...

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. Since your visit with us in November of 2015, we have made improvements to the wifi although we continue to have connection problems with the service provider. Perhaps you were visiting when we had just treated the facility for insects but we sincerely regret that they were found in your...

These cottages are exactly what I think of when i think about Hawaii. They are cute, clean and well located. Much nicer than a hotel room with a kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom with a nice front porch. It is very quiet and peaceful. Their garden is spectacular, full of flowers and fruit trees! The beach across the street...

Due to a local brush fire, my wife and I couldn't make it to our initial hotel on the west side of Maui. We were forced to stay in and around the airport for the night. Since many people were stranded, all of the hotels were booked. We came across Nona Lani Cottages via trip advisor. There are one room...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If your perfect vacation is having your "home away from home," look no further…Nona Lani Cottages, located on the south shores of the wonderful island of Maui, has eight cozy cottages situated on more than two acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, including swaying coconut palms and fragrant flowering plants and tropical fruit trees. Enjoy whale watching in winter months and spectacular sunsets year round from one of our four ocean view cottages, which are just a few short steps from Maui's longest continuous white sand beach and picturesque Ma'alaea Bay. Or if you are more of a tree lover, choose a garden view cottage. Or to mix things up, simply move a lounge chair or comfy hammock on the grounds to just sit back and relax in the shade or sunshine. The Kong family welcomes you to Maui! ... more   less
