We stayed in the gorgeous one bedroom 'Ulu Lulu' and loved it. Unfortunately we were there during a tropical storm so weather wasn't great but the accommodation was. As soon as we arrived the owners called to welcome us, warn us about the storm and also let us know where candles etc were in case we lost power in the... More

If you want to walk beautiful gardens, catch up on rest and maybe read a good book, a great place to relax and enjoy. In the future, I may make it an overnight stop on the road to Hana. Allows you to truly get into the road on the way in, have a place to relax and recover overnight and... More

We stayed at the Guest Houses at Malanai in early December and could not be happier with our decision. From the moment we walked in the door we felt transported to a tropical paradise, there were fresh flowers and fruit awaiting our arrival. It was the perfect location to explore the many sights and beaches near Hana. The guest house... More

My wife and I stay at vacation rentals / VRBO's across the Untied States - the Guests Houses at Malanai stands alone. The owners, Chris an Jacques, were helpful and informative without overdoing it and trying to plan our trip. Our accommodation was clean, well stocked, and classically decorated with a variety of local carvings that enhanced the jungle setting.... More

Really enjoyed my stay here. Well kept cottage with historic Hawaiian charm. Although not beach front, Property is within close proximity of Hana locations beaches waterfalls etc. Property is also within walking distance to the Venus pool. Managers take great care to ensure every need is anticipated and overall care to detail was second to none. Island flowers were scattered... More

We stayed at the Guest Houses at Hana for ten days over the New Year, and really really don't want to leave. The grounds and the cottages are delightful, lovingly cared for, and a perfect way to experience the Hana coast. While we were here, we learned that the owners are very well known and highly regarded in the Hana... More

This was a perfect place to spend three days in Hana! Very comfortable and located out of the main town but still with easy access to anything you might want to do…our hosts were on their way to the mainland to spend Christmas, but everything was in place and we had someone to call if necessary. The view and grounds... More

We stayed here for two nights on the advice of friends who had stayed here three years ago...and still talk about Hale Ulu Lulu. For good reason, we discovered! We have traveled extensively and stayed in many vrbo rental properties and local boutique hotels, and this is one of our favorites! Very peaceful setting, cross the street and hop over... More

We stayed in Hale Ulu Lulu for 2 nights and had a wonderful stay. This cottage has a long front yard and the front door faces the ocean in the distance. The decor is fun and artistic and it makes you happy just walking in the door. The front and back yards are full of beautiful flowers and palm trees,... More

We enjoyed a lovely, relaxing, peaceful stay at the Guest Houses at Malanai. Spending 3 nights in each cottage, we have nothing but praise for the efforts proprietors Leokane & Chris make to maintain the properties and provide a comfortably luxurious experience for guests. Friendly & informative, they made sure we were settled in, answered all questions we had about... More
