When you stay at the Inn at Mama’s Fish House you are stepping into an authentic, simple Hawaiian lifestyle. Each of the 12 condo styled cottage rooms are all slightly different and come in three sizes; studio, one and two bedrooms, and all are equipped with their own fully equipped kitchen. Dotted among the palm trees with hammocks strung between them, just steps from the beach, everything about the property invites you to relax and enjoy the simpler things in life.


Mama's Fish House Restaurant and Inn enjoys the very best that Maui has to offer; it's an ideal base from which to explore the famous Road to Hana and its own small beach is the perfect place to spend a lazy Hawaiian day. A short drive away along the Hana Highway to the east is the Ho’okipa Beach Park, which is a famous spot for windsurfers and it is well worth investigating to see some local competitions.

Food and drink

The Restaurant at Mama's Fish House Restaurant and Inn is famous throughout the Hawaiian Islands as one for the best options for fresh catch and traditional Hawaiian cuisine. Dinner is served in the relaxed wooden restaurant overlooking the ocean. A perfect romantic setting for honeymooners and for those wishing to get away from the larger restaurants and busy towns on the other side of the island. Guests at Mama’s Fish House are entitled to a 15% discount at the restaurant and bookings are essential.

Our opinion

An Audley favorite. Although this property doesn’t have the wealth of facilities that many hotels on the western coast of the island have, it holds a traditional Hawaiian “Aloha” charm with its authentic plantation styled cottages on the beach; a hidden gem.
