Whether you are honeymooning or traveling with the family, you will enjoy a unique Hawaiian experience and create memories at our Maui ocean view cottages that will last a lifetime. We invite you to experience our piece of tropical paradise that personifies the best of Hawaii’s charm, and we look forward to welcoming you soon!
Maui’s Kong Ohana (family) has owned and operated the Nona Lani Cottages since the cottages first opened in 1971. David and Winona “Nona” Kong, both Maui natives, envisioned welcoming visitors to the island they so cherished. When they conceived the idea of creating a vacation rental business, there were no other vacation rentals, condominiums, hotels, or resorts on the south part of the island. In fact, there was no one living within a 2-mile radius of their property, and only an estimated 200 people living in “Kihei” (which included north Kihei through to Makena). They opened their first four cottages in 1971 and added the next four in 1973. David oversaw the reservations and operations of the business, while Nona used her passion for gardening to turn the 2-acre property into a tropical paradise. David named the cottages “Nona Lani”, which translates to mean “Heavenly Nona” to honor his dearly loved wife. Past guests whom have had the opportunity to meet Nona, instantly understand David’s affection for her. She is absolutely beautiful, both inside and out, and embodies the pure essence of Aloha (love). She is the heartbeat of the Kong family and of Nona Lani.
ihei lies in the rain shadow of Haleakala and receives less than 13 inches of precipitation annually. Very dry and hot, the area was originally called Kama’ole which means barren in Hawaiian. Today, the undeveloped land above Kihei is used for cattle ranching and is covered in imported African grasses and keawe (mesquite). One of the most consistently sunny places in Maui, many resorts have grown up in conjunction with modern irrigation systems that have allowed for the creation of golf courses, green lawns, and beautiful landscaping. With such beautiful weather, Kihei is a great place to spend time on Maui.
