Loved this amazing cottage! Fantastic location, right off the road, but set back in a beautiful garden, private and still an ocean view. It was so convenient for dinner in Hana and for Hamoa beach (the most beautiful beach in Maui!). I loved the decor—pure Hawaiian, with a simple but artful sensibility. We will try to stay longer on our... More

We booked this accommodation with no hesitation after reading the reviews.. they are spot on! Chris always replied to our inquiry promptly. The place is clean, tidy, modern yet classic ... home away from home after a nice drive from Kahului It took us 2 hours to get our car rental as the queue was out the door so we... More

Sadly, we only had one night in this incredible escape in the rain forest of East Maui. The layout of Hale Manu is terrific and open. It is enveloped by all manner of tropical trees, plants and flowers, and is serene, serene, serene. We simply sat in the lush grass in the evening and drank a bottle of wine. Ahhhh!... More

There are hardly enough words to say how simply beautiful this home and our time in Hana was. This area is the Hawaii of my dreams full of tropical plants, fruits, waterfalls, and picturesque ocean views. The owners of the guest houses of Malanai have thought of every detail to make your stay elegant and comfortable. We had an amazing... More

We stayed in the 2 bedroom house June 12-15. It was fantastic! The owner responded to my email and questions very quickly. The whole rental process was very smooth. The house was great. A great deck with its own gas grill. A big open living room, dining and kitchen area. 2 decent sized bedrooms and a bath. Everything was clean... More

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
