My wife and I spent 3 nights here and we loved our time there. Sam and Mercury were gracious hosts and we loved the peace and quiet. The open feeling of the room is fun. With the windows open, we heard the whales near shore one night at 2 AM, even though the place is not right on the ocean. It has sweeping views of the ocean and this beautiful former banana plantation. There is lots to do with the national park on either side of you, and lots of beaches to explore. We hiked into several waterfalls.

Room Tip: Only one room available.

Before booking we read all of the reviews, both positive and negative. We can honestly say that in our opinion, the negative reviews are totally unfounded. Ala'aina Ocean vista is as advertised - a tranquil and secluded B&B. The property is beautifully landscaped and Sam & her daughter, Mercury take great pride in it. The extra touches such as the gardens, statues, artistic flower arrangements, outdoor tub & shower are second to none. The outdoor kitchen was our favorite - giving a truly Hawaiian flare to our stay. Everything was provided for a delicious breakfast of toast, fruit, eggs & coffee. As suggested by Mercury when we booked, we bought meat & veggies in Kahului and cooked all of our own meals in the outdoor kitchen, enjoying dinner and wine by candle light under the stars! Sam does live adjacent to the B&B but the rental unit is totally private and she is extremely respectful of your privacy. Staying at Ala'aina was a highlight of our trip and we look forward to another visit. If you want a hotel-like experience, then book one. If you are looking for a unique B&B that is secluded, tranquil and rejuvenating then we highly recommend staying here!

This was a great place to spend the last few days of our trip in Maui. There are so many great things to do and see in the Hana area and we were happy we decided to spend a few days there rather than to the drive up and back in one day. This property is beautiful and secluded. We loved using the outdoor kitchen and enjoying the ocean views all around us! My husband and I are very outdoorsy people and this was the perfect place for us.

Wonderful way to get away from the rest of Maui. Very quiet. Lots to do on foot. I biked there from near Paia. Had a sag with my stuff. Strongly suggest bathing in the outdoor tub. Nirvana. Sam and Mercury are wonderful. Really enjoyed preparing meals in the outdoor kitchen. This is not a place for folks who want all the conveniences of a hotel. A bit of trouble finding the correct spot, however, as not well marked and very isolated so no one around to point it out. Eventually found it.

This B&B is in a private location on 4 acres and is landscaped like a minature Botanical Garden. You can enjoy an outdoor kitchen on the patio. It is so relaxing to sit outside and have breakfast and dinner with no bugs to bother you. There is always a nice warm breeze. You can see the ocean from 2 sides of the deck and from your bedroom. The outside shower and tub are a unique choice to use (totally private). When it rained during the night, it made it seem so peaceful and so refreshed in the morning. The air is so clean. Your bedroom has 2 sides that have windows at bed level that you can open and let the ocean breeze blow through. The owners (Sam and Mercury) are so particular with the yard and it is breathtaking. They are 2 very special ladies to meet, so kind and honest. They are always there if you need anything; otherwise, you never knew they were there. We are keeping this as a favorite place to stay and will be back the next time we get back to Maui. This is truly a very special B&B that tops all of the other places we have stayed during our travels.
