Sam and Mercury have created a truly amazing place to relax and restore in a beautiful, remote part of Maui. The drive along narrow mountain roads is well worth it. We explored the gorgeous beaches and waterfalls that surround Hana by day and played board games and drank wine under the start by night. A fantastic place to stay!

My wife and I had the privilege to return to Ala'aina over the last weekend in October for a three night stay "off the grid" in Kipahulu. We had spent a single night during our last visit to Maui in 2011, and were pleased to be able to return to this special tropical paradise. The grounds were lush but tastefully manicured, the morning views of sunrise on Haleakala and the Big Island spectacular, and the night sounds of the surf in the distance lulled us to sleep every evening. Sam & Mercury are gracious hosts, providing the privacy to enjoy this beautiful property, but accessible if we had questions, or just for conversation. We especially enjoyed the outdoor shower and tub, and the outdoor kitchen and deck for meals and sunning.

This property is in close proximity to Haleakala National Park's Seven Sacred Pools of Ohe'o and Pipiwai trail to Waimoku Falls. Sam & Mercury also recommended a short walk to the private gem of Alelele Falls. Hana is just far enough away, but offers beach opportunities, food carts, and fresh fruit stands abound. However, when you are in the Garden of Eden, it's hard to rationalize the drive into town.

If you want to escape the hustle bustle of modern life and commune with nature, this is the place for you. Thanks, Sam & Mercury, for sharing your special place with us.

Room tip: There is only a single room with private bath and outdoor kitchen.

My wife and I had the pleasure of staying at this beautiful house for two nights and enjoyed the complete peace and immersion into the Hana spirit. Sam and Mercury are extremely welcoming and knowledgeable about all things Hana and the views from their home are fantastic!

We have been lucky enough to have stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast twice; the first was for our honeymoon almost 13 years previous to this most recent stay. We love this side of Maui, is has not yet been spoiled by tourists (even though we are tourists) or by businesses; it is peaceful and natural, we love it. As much as we love this side of Maui, we wholly enjoy and appreciate this bed and breakfast. The owners (Sam and Mercury) are amazing in their ability to be accommodating and yet provided us with peaceful privacy. The room is equipped with a small outdoor kitchen that is more than adequate to prepare breakfast or other meals as you desire. The owners provided us with fresh fruit, eggs, bagels and juice. The views from the porch are awesome, especially at sunset and sunrise (the sky is pink and purple over the blue water). The breeze coming in the room especially in the evening is lovely and makes for a good room temperature (even for those of us addicted to air conditioning). We totally appreciate the eco friendly facility (solar powered) and had no trouble with the (very minor) restrictions due to such (we actually find it extremely refreshing). We hope to stay here again, and would recommend to others.

A wonderful and private little hideaway just past the Seven Sacred Pools. Beautiful views, peaceful nights, clean and welcoming. Remember you are in the middle of the jungle, with sounds and wildlife, but that only endeared us more. A gorgeous property and really fun to cook in the outdoor kitchen and live "off the grid". Organic eggs,organic butter, fresh grown fruit and bagels provided to make your breakfasts with and all kitchen supplies. We brought things to prepare for dinner, and it helped to have meat ( if you're bringing) cooked and cut up for quick prep as there are two gas burners with cast iron pans to cook and no oven. (There is a charcoal BBQ though.) Worked out great for us! Loved the place and Sam and her daughter are very friendly and helpful. Will go back again anytime we are lucky enough to be in Maui.

Room tip: one room only
