Just returned from spending 4 nights at the lovely Ala'Aina Ocean Vista. This place is just what we were looking for, off-grid, beautiful surroundings and great hosts! Wonderful location for exploring Haleakala National Park, Seven Pools, other waterfalls and, of course, the spectacular black and red sand beaches. Sam & Mercury have furnished the place with everything you could imagine,... More

My husband and I spent two wonderful nights here in Sept. We were bowled over by the peace and tranquility of this special place. The ocean vistas were incredible, with the Big Island's peaks in view and we even got the requisite Maui rainbow or two during the stay. The cottage is open and airy and we were able to... More

My wife and I returned to Sam and Mercury's beautiful home for the third time on July 19-22. We had previously stayed there in June of 2004 and again in June of 2007.

Starting our week-long Maui trip exploring the Hana side of the island was a great decision. I highly recommend making your base at this B&B, which is within a few minutes from Heleakala National Park, and no more than 30 minutes to several waterfalls and beautiful beaches. Sam and Mercury have a beautiful property, where you can relax after a... More

We always wanted to explore the Hana side of the island and knew that the best way to do that was to stay a few nights. That's exactly what we did for 3 nights in late June at Sam's place in Kipahulu. She was extremely responsive in working with us to reserve the place and provided excellent directions to find...

Lovely property with peace and privacy. Views of garden, lawn, mountains and ocean. Wake up early to the sound of birds in this open and airy room. We loved the fresh air and indoor-outdoor feel. The tiny kitchen on the deck was perfect for preparing simple meals. Hosts are friendly and available but give you lots of space. Romantic and... More

My wife and I rented a car, and drove here and stayed two nights during our honeymoon. It was an unforgettable experience. Hawaii as you always pictured it. Absolutely beautiful grounds, great views, clean rooms, and delicious fresh fruit. We would return in a heartbeat if we ever get the chance to visit Hawaii again.

We stayed three nights here and it was a lovely quiet oasis. Although it was off the grid, we still had WiFi and all the amenities. A short drive from the Sacred Pools and 10 miles from Hana Town we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Sam and Mercury make you very welcome.

Ala'aina was basically a bedroom, bathroom and deck attached to the main house. That being said, we had complete and total privacy the entire stay. We came and went as we pleased, rarely seeing our host Sam (a wonderful host) or her daughter Mercury (who we only met on our last day). We hiked trails, sought out waterfalls, explored and... More

The Ala'aina Ocean Vista B&B lies in a picturesque area surrounded with natural beauty. The property is immaculately landscaped and it offers great views of the Pacific ocean and neighboring Maui. Our room was very nice and offered a truly relaxing environment. Visitors can easily explore Hana and the regional national parks and reserves. We would stay there again!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ala Aina Ocean Vista is proud to be 100% GREEN and an ECO-FRIENDLY accommodation. We offer you a VERY private and unique B&B suite, located on a former banana plantation, nestled in an exotic lush tropical setting. It boasts the peace and quiet and offers guests sweeping ocean vistas. Enjoy lying in bed watching the ocean in your king-sized bed surrounded by windows overlooking tropical trees, flowers and rolling green lawns. Our B&B suite offers a custom -king-size bed. The fully-equipped efficiency kitchen, on the large private deck, is charming and you can cook "under the stars"! There is an inside private bathroom with marble floors and tiled shower (roomy enough for two), as well as an outside bath and shower with lotus pond in your own little garden. We offer a cool selection of retro board games and Direct TV access for those that want television. We also have free WIFI too. The best part is we offer each and every guest a romantic and quiet accommodation experience and SWEEPING OCEAN VISTAS from your room and deck! There are also spectacular sunsets and incredible rainbows that our guests rave about! This is a true Hawaiian getaway and a real slice of paradise! We are just 2 miles from, 7 Sacred Pools, aka The Pools at Ohe'o. Additionally we are 10 miles to the town of Hana, where the famous Hasegawa's General Store and the Hotel Hana Maui are located.
