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...

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
