This 2 bedroom cottage is located just past the town of Hana in the forest. It has a great atmosphere. It is clean, spacious and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with items needed for cooking, ie. spices, foil, saran. A good BBQ is there for your use. There is a washer and dryer plus the soap... More

I have stayed at my fair share of guest houses in my life and I must say, ditto to what everyone else has said. Leokane and Chris are the best - their guest house even better! We stayed in Hale Manu for 3 nights (could have stayed for 30) and enjoyed its serenity and the privacy. Beautiful sunsets from each... More

We recently stayed at Hale Manu and it was wonderful. My husband and I had decided to spend several nights at different locations across Maui, and Hana was our last destination. Hana does not have an overabundance of lodging so I looked into finding a special place to stay several months in advance. Luckily I came across The Guest House... More

My wife and I spent five nights in the two-bedroom Hale Manu in February 2015. We wanted a home base from which to explore East Maui, and a comfortable retreat to enjoy quiet time with each other. The Guest Houses at Malanai were just perfect on both counts. We arrived with a few bags of groceries we'd picked up in... More

The place is perfect if you are looking for a quiet and peaceful place to stay and relax while staying in maui. The owners are very adroit in impressing their guests with their service as we had nothing to show that went against a good quality stay at the place. The cottages are warm and perfect with everything properly catered... More

My husband and I stayed at Hale Ulu Lulu and at Hale Manu in September of 2014. I will begin my review with Hale Ulu Lulu as that was our first stop. This little hale was once a work house for a sugar plantation near this location. It has housed many local families., giving the property an energy that is... More

My husband and I stayed in Hale Ulu Lulu and were blown away at how cozy and perfectly decorated the house was! The owners greeted us and made us feel very welcome. The house had small signs with helpful tips on how to use everything. We drove to Hana stayed here for one night and drove back to Haiku where... More

We just left the one bedroom cottage after spending 3 nights. Driving the road to Hana round trip did not sound like a great idea and in hindsight staying in Hana was ideal. It allowed us to hike and spend a day at the beach while being able to relax. The cottage, a one bedroom house, sits on at least... More

On my third trip to Hana, I stayed at Hale Manu - The Guest Houses at Malanai, nestled amongst lush tropical vegetation, the cottage sat isolated from the main house in the 2-3 acre lot. It had a very spacious living room and kitchen with all the essential appliances and utensils. The two bedrooms were comfortable and the bathroom had... More

My wife and I stayed in the Hale Ulu Lulu house for a couple of nights last week and loved it. The cottage is beautifully appointed, clean, larger than we expected, and very private.
