Called, "The Hawaii of your dreams!" By Sunset Magazine, the Inn at Mama's Fish House is just steps away from the ocean on a secluded white sand beach.

Providing the same warmth and charm you'll find in our award-winning restaurant, each cottage embodies traditional elements of Polynesian decor, local wood working, spectacular flower arrangements, and beautiful artwork. The casual comfort of the Inn at Mama's Fish House exemplifies the Aloha spirit of Maui.

We just spent 3 fabulously relaxing night’s in the Garden Suite. Probably our 8th time here! Perfectly located to see the honu at Hookipa, whales spouting in the distance, buy groceries at Mana foods, relax on the lovely beach and enjoy outstanding hospitality! Lovely shower, great kitchen and perfect way to begin a Maui vacation as it close to the airport and the road to Hana🌺.They also have huge washers and dryers so it’s also a great place to end your vacation as well.

The junior cottage “Manini” was perfect for us. The room has a comfortable queen bed, a full bathroom with a tiled shower, kitchen with everything you could possibly need, a washer/dryer (shared with another unit, but not an issue…detergent/dryer sheets included), room is prepared for the number of guests, fresh flowers everywhere, and a private parking space. The best part is two private… lovely, tranquil outdoor areas, one with a lava waterfall (shared with the locals (birds, geckos and vacationing Madagascar Geckos)). The owners of Inn have one of the most beautiful properties on Maui. Two strong recommendations: 1. Signs indicating required distance to turtles resting on the beach (we observed multiple people stepping between their flippers to take pictures, and getting right in their faces…ignorant or uninformed). Restaurant guests need to be made aware as they were 90% of these people. 2. Dogs were running all over with leashes attached to them, but free of their owner’s control (one dog was running all through the beach-goers and sniffing the two turtles…one dog bite could be lethal).

Let me start by saying staying at the Inn was a bucket list of mine although out of my price range, we splurged and booked the Luxury Studio for a few nights during our vacation to Maui. To our surprise, we were upgraded to the 2 bedroom ocean view cottage. My husband and I were in awwww. What an amazing surprise!! The cottage was 5 star. We loved being here and didn't want to leave, The beach was beautiful and cozy. We even saw Sea Turtles with the snorkel gear provided. It was so fun to watch the guests arrive for their lunch/dinner at the restaurant, knowing they all have waited so long for this amazing experience. You could see the joy on their faces as they gathered for group pictures. The restaurant was also incredible. Hard to explain but the most wonderful food and staff. My husband and I took the time to read the story of the Christiansen Family. What a joy to hear about their journey and amazing accomplishment. Book this property. You will not be disappointed. Until next time!!! Cheers and ALOHA!

Words cannot describe how amazing it was to stay here. My husband, 8year old and I stayed here from 8/25-8/28 in the Malolo Beachfront Cottage. The staff was amazing and the villas was impeccably cleaned. Every morning we sat on our lanai with coffee to simply take in the breathtaking view. We ate lunch at Mamas once and also called and ordered take out, including a bottle of wine to enjoy in front of our villa. If I had one complaint it would be that we were regularly startled by people walking through the gate near our villa to get to the beach. While I understand that the beach is public, it would be great if people enter the beach on the side near the restaurant, instead of walking through the grass near the villas. Even that is not enough to keep us away from this amazing place. They even chill the glasses for you to have cold cocktails! It is the little things. Mahalo. We will be back!

The North Shore's iconic Mama's Fish House also has a few cottages on the property, and we recently stayed in the smallest one, the Garden Studio. Even as a small place not right on the beach it was well equipped and very comfortable, with beach chairs and towels provided, an outdoor patio and grill and small kitchen. Staff is helpful and friendly. If I had a complaint it would be that privacy is at a premium here-people needed to walk through our outdoor area to get to the parking lot and beach, and we had to keep shades down in the living area as anyone in the parking lot could have seen right in. But still we completely enjoyed our stay.

My hubby surprised me with a 2-night staycation @ the Opah cottage, & in celebration of my 55th birthday! 🎉🎊🎁 It was absolutely stunning, & the most perfect accommodation!! My jaw literally dropped when I walked in for the first time, & I wanted to cry!! From the time he made the reservation, at time of check-in, & even to check-out, this accommodation & the entire staff was 5-star all the way!! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 The unit was extremely clean & very cozy, tastefully decorated, very well appointed, & very romantic!! The bed, bedding, & pillows were heavenly!! We have never slept better away from home! The floor to ceiling curtains allowed for us to sleep in in the mornings; not to mention - the property is extremely quiet & peaceful!! There were more than enough bath towels, & they too were of the utmost quality & very luxurious. The unit had ceiling fans, & was air conditioned. The lighting throughout was very nice, & even had dimmers, which is great!! They even had a classic Marshall Stanmore player that we could connect our devices to through Bluetooth, & listen to our favorite music. The sound on that thing was fantastic!! The staff had placed freshly picked hibiscus & orchids all throughout the unit & accessorizing the towels; making it that much more special when we walked in, & throughout our stay! They literally thought of everything!! We enjoyed their delicious coffee in the mornings & homemade loaf of banana bread too. They even had a bag of ice in the freezer for us!! Like I said, they anticipated every need, & thought of everything!! We highly recommend The Inn at Mama’s Fish House; with our only regret being that we couldn’t stay longer!! We also didn’t have time to take a bath in the fabulous jetted tub, nor enjoy the spacious outdoor patio!! Next time I guess!! Mahalo nui loa for your most generous Ho’okipa & aloha!! We look so forward to our next stay with you all!! Aloha!! 🌺🌺🌺

My second visit at The Inn at Mama’s Fish House surpassed my first wonderful experience. The communication and service from beginning to end is and was top-notch. Our last visit (3/2021), I reserved a deluxe two-bedroom cottage for me, my husband and our daughter. The “Ono Cottage” was beautifully decorated and updated. It was situated on the bottom floor of a hale right behind the host station of the restaurant. Our gorgeous lanai and yard remained quiet and peaceful. (The only distraction was was the mouthwatering waft of Mama’s!) We loved being able to walk right out our lanai onto the lawn and the small beach. We set up a blanket on the sand and carried our beverages and snacks down for the afternoon. We watched surfers and kite boarders from afar. Sea turtles rested on the beach and rocks nearby. The Inn at Mama’s is a unique and wonderful place to stay for a few nights away from the resort areas. It’s also a good launching point for Upcountry or the Road to Hana. I would like to stay for a week! However, for most visitors, I think it’s a good place to get away from the resort areas for a few days.

Beautiful place to stay. Attention to every detail, even homemade banana bread and fresh flowers at every turn. Immaculate accommodations, laundry available and all beach chairs, snorkel gear and beach toys for toddlers/children. Full kitchen, sofas, comfy chairs and bed with great views. 2 big screen TV’s. Very clean, and so many extra touches. Worth every penny. Excellent interaction with the employees. Only 2 downsides: -Signage is lacking, hard to know where to go to find the office/lobby. -Loud neighbors, kids and someone dragging aluminum cans in a garbage bag 3 times in the middle of the night across the parking lot and up the road. Very annoying. Otherwise, highly recommended!

I can’t say enough good things about our stay at Mama’s. We were there for our honeymoon and stayed in the Luxury Junior Suite (Jan 2021), one of their less expensive rooms, and I was blown away immediately upon opening the door. Honestly, the pictures on their website do not do the room justice! It was filled with fresh flowers, and it was much more spacious than I imagined, with a beautiful private lanai, high ceilings, and a gorgeous huge bathroom with a whirlpool bathtub. It’s worth the room just for the bath! We had an issue with the tub draining the first night, and management fixed it quickly the next day. Be aware that there is no staff at the office from 5pm- 8am, so you can’t expect assistance during those hours. The staff was super friendly and helpful, the grounds were lovely, and it was great to have a luxury stay away from the big resorts. The beach in front of Mama’s is rocky and not great for laying out, but still excellent to dip your toes with your morning coffee (which you can make in your room). We ate at the restaurant our last night there and it was simply incredible. Well worth every penny, and we can’t wait to come back for an anniversary one day!

We stayed here in March just prior to the island being shutdown. We spent the first portion of our trip in a Junior Suite and the latter 3 nights in a beachfront cottage. We found the accommodations to be comfortable, with lovely decor and great amenities. Of course the perk of staying here is proximity to the restaurant- which lives up to every bit of acclaim. Exceptional food & staff. The crew at the front bar were especially terrific. Overall we cannot say enough about the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff everywhere. It was a hectic and uncertain time and they were gracious, thoughtful and flexible. While our trip was cut short, we are dreaming of our return. Thank you.
