We stayed one night and it wasn't enough! This place was truly more than I could have imagined. From the time of my reservation to the night of our stay, the service was outstanding...no detail left out. Fresh flowers in every room, Hawaiian music playing and the doors and windows were open upon our arrival. The house was beautiful and...

We spent the night in Hana at one of the gorgeous Guest Houses at Malanai. There are two beautiful guest houses on the property. They are about a five minute drive from the center of town. We stayed in the two bedroom house at the top of the property. It had a great deck and was surrounded by lush fruit...

We stayed for two nights at the one bedroom cottage in September. As others have said the home is in a lovely setting. There are tropical flowers inside and outside and there was Hawaiian music playing as we arrived. It is spacious, comfortable, and the kitchen has everything you need. Our only complaint was the lack of air conditioning as...

Having stayed in many different types of accommodations around the world, I was drawn to Hana, not only for the drive, which is in itself an adventure but the destination itself and I was not disappointed. The guest houses at Malanai are wonderful, fantastic décor, superb location and the staff go above and beyond to ensure your visit is everything...

We've done the Road to Hana before and knowing how tiring it can be, my husband and I decided to spend some time in Hana relaxing before hitting the road to come home. We stayed in the smaller guest house and it was just perfect. The owners have taken the idea of a peaceful Hawaiian retreat and totally nailed it!...

Driving the Hana Highway up and back in one day takes much of the fascination and joy out of it. It's exciting, a bit harrowing, and full of beautiful views which you miss if you rush it. So, spend a night or two or three as we did in this beautiful cottage. Use the Gypsy App to guide you, take...

We are a family of 3 and stayed 3 days Jun 13-16 in the 2 bedroom house. The location was terrific and very close to some nice beaches and main attractions. The house had everything we needed including beach chairs and coolers. We made great use of the kitchen and grill. The kitchen was well stocked with spices, oil, vinegar,...

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights. The unit had great old-Hawaiian ambiance but everything was updated and it was clean. It is set on a large grassy lot with views of the ocean (somewhat obscured by power lines). It was stocked with beach gear and cooking gear. The Internet was “flaky” but worked enough for what I...

My wife and I stayed at the guest house for 2 nights. Though we have been to Maui multiple times, this was our first trip to Hana, and we were looking for a quiet getaway spot that would give us a feel for this side of the island. We stayed in the small (1 BR) guest house, and it provided...

Secluded, lavishly landscaped property, lovingly cared for by the landlords. Fresh fruit from the yard will await you wen you arrive. They are happy to act as informal concierges, steering you to the pleasures of Hana, many of which are not obvious. The house came with the best outfitted kitchen I have ever seen, including some condiments as well as...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We offer two impeccably maintained, fully furnished, ocean view homes in one of Hana’s finest locations. We are directly across from the Maka’alae pasturelands and ocean and also situated within walking distance to world famous Hamoa Beach and Venus Pool. Each home is landscaped for privacy on our approximately two-acre property. We live in a separate home on the property, so you have the security of knowing that your rental is well maintained and though we honor your privacy, we make ourselves available to assist you when needed. Both of our guesthouses have stack washer/dryers, tub and shower combinations (a oversized claw foot tub in Hale Ulu Lulu and a spa tub in Hale Manu) and enjoy the convenience of “on the grid” wi-fi, electricity, free telephone to US/Canada, cable and water. We consistently receive rave reviews on our attention to detail and thoughtfully equipped homes. ... more   less
