About Jody Ellis-Smith Tax ID #03450934-01
My husband purchased this property in 1982. I am a part time resident of Maui and could not think of a more wonderful place to call home! We live on the mainland in Montana when we are not here. We live and farm spring and durham wheat.

Why Jody Ellis-Smith Tax ID #03450934-01 chose Hana
While in Hana we enjoy planting and maintaining the various fruit trees we have growing. The property used to be solid jungle. It has taken many years to clear and replant the land. We now can enjoy the hard work and indulge in all the delicious fresh fruit! The properties in our neighborhood are one half acre and more, so there is plenty of privacy and quiet evenings. Our property is one acre with many plantings to ensure privacy. We have had our lava wall built along the road and a hibiscus hedge that almost grows the length of it
What makes this Cottage unique
The Hana area is a truly unique and wonderful place where you can get away from a hectic pace and recharge! Fresh fish, fresh fruit and great hiking and beaches along with the welcoming atmosphere, make Hana the perfect get away! Most morning we take a short walk to Waianapanapa State Park. It is magical walking through the shade of the kamani nut trees to open up to the view of beautiful black lava arches, brilliant blue ocean and striking green plants. The coastal trails are the same the ancient Hawaiians used to travel the island. The walk ways around the camping and picnic area have all been redone with handicap access to look outs and handrails.

This felt like a REAL Royal Hawaiian Home!
Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!!! God Blessed us tremendously of experiencing the gorgeous jungle life style at your cottage. Highlights were fruit trees, huge space within the home...felt like a Royal Hawaiian Home!!! Thanks for your gift of hospitality! GOD BLESS!
Comfortable and convenient!
This was a lovely place, had everything we needed and was a great location for accessing the parks at this end of the island. It gets hot (no AC) but that’s to be expected and we were able to cool things down in the evenings with windows and fans. Thanks for letting us stay!
Was in Hana on business, so didn't take full advantage of what the property had to offer, but the house was a comfortable retreat to come back to after a long day of work.
This cottage was perfect for our visit to see family in Hana. The property was huge where our kids and their cousins had a blast playing. The fruit trees were plenty and we enjoyed some tangerines during our stay. The inside of cottage was very clean and spacious. We enjoyed the deck overlooking the grounds and spent every evening there “talking story”. Sadly the washer just broke so we were not able to do some laundry but really wasn’t a disappointed while this home was everything we wanted and needed. Mahalo!
Yes I am so sorry for the washing machine problem. A guest tried to open the washer while the lid lock was engaged and broke it. It’s all repaired now. The part had to be shipped from the mainland.
I am happy you enjoyed the place.
All the best,
Great House in a Beautiful Area
My family really enjoyed our stay in the Luana Cottage during our three nights in the Hana area. The house was well-kept, had all of the items and amenities we expected (plus an acre of land with an assortment of tropical vegetation), and is close the great wonders of the Hana area. Staying there and experiencing the east end of Maui were our trip highlights.
Hiking,fresh water pools,black sand beach for swimming 5 minutes from cottage.
