My husband and I decided to have our honeymoon here in November of 2011 and it was amazing. I researched MANY places to stay on Maui and this place sounded great and and great reviews. It is litterally across the street from the beach and in a fairly quiet area. Yes you can hear the cars go by but its...

Aloha Angela, Wow, there were 10, count them TEN, whole people on the beach at Kong's Cove at sunset !!! That is busy! When you return to Maui remind me to tell you about how we as kids had the whole 1 mile beach to ourselves. Aren't the sunsets from Kong's Cove in November wonderful? The whales were not out...

Nona Lani was dubbed a solid gold value by Maui Revealed. In the high season the cottages are 165$ to 175$ a night. They were not well equipped with kitchen utensils. It was-little shabby and they did not pay attention to details. There was no housekeeping. All of this would have been fine if the price were compatible with the...

Aloha Lottridge, Thank you for your review and for bringing to mind those things you felt were not up to par during your stay here at Nona Lani Cottages. Yes, the pricing during the Winter months is a bit higher (we see you stayed with us in Jan.) than our secondary season (April 16th through Dec. 15th). But regardless of...

We loved our time there. The location is an easy drive to the buzz of Kihei and it was so easy to go to the beach from our little piece of Maui. The grounds are beautiful and parking is always easy and close to your door, unlike hotels and condos. We have a two year old and the road is...

Aloha Ryan! Mahalo for your heartfelt review!

If you want the condo experience and to hang out with condo residents, then this may not be the place for you. If you want to experience a little real Hawaiian Aloha, with a nice, friendly, aloha-filled family, then this is definitely a good choice. We spent 17 days in a very clean studio room with a patio surrounded by...

When my boyfriend and I decided to go we did our research to find something unique and un"hotelish". Noni Lani is absolutely wonderful since it is private and a very laid back hawaiian atmosphere.

Mahalo for your candid review. We are so glad that your final words were "I doubt it is from bed bugs."

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
