We visited this Bed and Breakfast in November 2009. We were prepared to spend the nights there and bum around the area during the day time. Once we arrived and unpacked, looked around the grounds, any thoughts of leaving immediately vanished. We spent 3 fabulous days basking in the sun totally removed from the everyday humdrum. No cell phone, Go to sleep when the Sun goes down, and sleep like a baby in a most fascinating bed, and wake with the Sun. We left totally recharged.

If anyone wants to experience a bit of paradise this is the place.

This is a real find. My wife and I were looking for a nice, out of the way place to stay while visiting Hana. It blew away our expectations. Sam and her daughter Mercury have created a beautiful little oasis. The room and attached outdoor kitchen are elegantly simple. The view from the luxurious bed is stunning, with the tropical breezes and birdsongs enveloping you. Honestly, it feels like you could lie there forever. It was a pleasure to cook there as well, with the handy grill to cook steaks on and fresh fruit Sam provided. I must also mention it's just down the road from the best little organic fruit stand I've ever experienced. We went there three times in two days! Also, it's very near Hana's famous seven sacred pools, so it's easy to get there early and beat the crowds. Highly recommended.

Our three day stay at the Ala'aina Ocean Vista was an experience we will always treasure. The fabulous setting offers ocean views in two directions and the grounds and gardens are lovingly maintained. The freshly picked tropical fruits, exotic flowers, and the birds all stimulate the senses and provide a wonderful escape into another world. We were delighted with our outdoor kitchen which lacked for nothing, and we greatly appreciated all of Sam's detailed advice on what sorts of food to bring. Best of all was the outdoor shower and tub! We wish we could have stayed longer. Sam and Mercury were wonderful hosts showing us all we needed and then leaving us to enjoy their little bit of heaven. We would love to go back again!

Found this charming B and B in Fodor's boo. Off the beaten path in Hana, Maui. Actually a detached room off a larger house owned by Mercury and Sam (mother, daughter team). Set on some spectacular gardens about 9 miles from Hana. The place was charming and private. Large selection of popular movies and kitchenette on deck. Could see whales from bed. Place was slightly hard to find so bring directions. Bed was a little soft but overall it was well worth the stay. Great fresh fruit in the morning. Also a little remote, no restaurants nearby. Either need to bring food to grill or eat in Hana before driving for night.

My partner and I just returned from two wonderful nights spent at the Ala'aina and couldn't be happier. If you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing and unique place to stay, with ocean and sunset views, this is the place for you. Sam and Mercury could not have been more welcoming or gracious - we were delighted to find starfruit, papaya, avocado and lilikoi in baskets from the yard. While somewhat of a drive from Hana town (especially at night), it is the perfect location to explore the bamboo forest, seven sacred pools, and all the adventure the surrounding areas had to offer. Sam was wonderful to provide a list of recommended sights in the area to check out, they were all wonderful.

We drove the Hana highway in, happy to have left Pa'ai in the afternoon as to avoid most of the traffic. We took the other way home, which was so different but beautiful and an opportunity to explore different geography of the island. As with nearly anywhere you stay in Hana, you need to come prepared with food if you are not planning on going to one of the very few restaurants in town. The one grocery store has VERY FEW options so I'd suggest picking up some fresh fish or something to grill, a bbq and outdoor kitchenette are provided. If you are the type of traveler who enjoys hanging out at a resort with people serving you drinks, this might not be the place for you. If you are looking for a magical taste of real Hawaii, with waterfalls, fresh fruit, lush landscape and caring hosts, this is the place for you.
We also loved the king size BED (not futon, mr crankypants) surrounded by the views, my only suggestion would be investing in some top quality bed linens... although maybe then no one would ever leave. Mahalo.
