We had the opportunity to stay two nights in Hana during our trip to Maui. We had done our research before leaving on our trip and contacted Chris and Jacques and booked our stay at the Hale Manu in Hana. When we arrived, we were greeted by a friendly face, welcoming music, fresh fruit and amazing landscaping. The home was... More

What a beautiful property! It really felt just like home. Staying here gave us a glimpse of what it would feel like to live in Hana. Can't wait to go back! We did laundry, and we cooked hearty meals right in the house. The pantries are fully stocked with cookware, spices, and oil. You can find fresh fruits from the... More

The attention to detail and beauty of the cottage were impeccable. The property proximity as far as esthetic ambiance and walking distance to Venus Pool and Hamoa Beach added to the " old Hawaii" feel. Given that the modern conveniances were right at your fingertips. This place is home whenever we return. Mahalo and Aloha, Steven and Margot Rego Pleasanton,... More

We have been coming to Maui for 15 years and have always wanted to stay in Hana, but until we saw these guest houses and red the reviews we never felt comfortable with taking our family here. Our expectations were exceeded and we loved our days at the guest house. It was such a beautiful dream vacation and the owners... More

We spent two nights in the two bedroom guesthouse cottage -what a find! The cottage was beautifully decorated and what's more, thoughtfully stocked with items you may have forgotten or considered too bulky to bring - even things like beach chairs, fins, laundry detergent and even Q-tips were on hand! My favorite spot? The wall-to-wall kitchen! I have never seen... More

We enjoyed our 3 nights at the one bedroom Hale Ulu Cottage. We explored the area, swam in the nearby ocean, and relaxed "at home". There was alot of privacy at this open & airy cottage located in a pretty area just south of Hana Town. Leokane and Chris were great hosts. We liked the Hawaiian decorations and the open... More

We LOVED our stay at Hale Ulu Lulu Cottage!! Beautiful cottage with an amazing view perfectly situated just past Hana!! Near our favorite Hamoa Beach. The cottage was very clean and beautifully decorated. Leokane and Chris have thought of every detail. Their gift for hospitality is displayed throughout! After airline delays and lost luggage to arrive at such a charming... More

We stayed at Hale Ulu Lulu in Hana for two nights. I was a little skeptical that we weren't going to be right in Hana Town, but I think it turned out to be better! The cottage was very clean, charming, quite spacious and EXTREMELY well stocked - we ended up cooking both dinners in, and the house had a... More

Even after reading so many positive reviews of these guest houses, we were still surprised at how much we enjoyed our stay at Hale Ulu Lulu (the smaller house) for 3 nights! As all the other reviews have mentioned, the location is perfect, the house is charming and incredibly well stocked, and it's the perfect base for exploring the Hana... More

We stayed in Hale Manu for 3 nights in March 2014, and I can't say enough about this place or the hosts. When we got there, we received a nice phone call from Leokane, making sure everything looked ok and that we didn't need anything, along with an invitation to see him play and sing Hawaiian music at the Travaasa...
