Maui County Permit # BBHA 2012/0002
Conde Nast Traveler Magazine 'Deal of the Month' & 'Hawaii's Hidden Values'. Please visit our website for November and December Specials.
Hale Manu, which means the 'Bird House', is our larger two-bedroom guesthouse, privately located in the rear of our property with phenomenal ocean views. The spacious Hawaiian styled architecture includes open beamed, vaulted ceilings, a large center cupola for great airflow, an open floor plan and a large lanai for evening dining under the stars or morning coffee with the sunrise.
Over time, we have completely renovated and professionally decorated the home, including a large fully equipped kitchen (a kitchen inventory is available on our website), an all tile bathroom with new fixtures, queen sized beds with high thread count all cotton bedding and teak steamer chairs, gas barbeque and an additional table for dining on the lanai. The ocean facing bedrooms are conducive to romantic sultry evening breezes.
We take a lot of pride in our homes, as is evident from the many comments provided by previous guests (please see our online guestbook accessible from our website). Hale Manu is thoughtfully furnished with a fun vintage Hawaiian flair, including a beautifully refurbished 1930's vintage rattan living room set we found and shipped all the way from a small Texas town and original oil paintings by local Hana artists. Sink yourself into the furnishings and grab a book off the bamboo shelves to relax the night away or choose a DVD from the small collection we supply. We also have a collection of coffee table books about Hawaii and Polynesia and, since the home is the “bird house” we have bird books, binoculars for the avid bird watchers. We have done our best to consider all the details, like comfortable linens, nice soaps, whole bean quality coffee and green tea for your first day and for those of you who need to stay connected, we have high speed wireless internet access and unlimited, free mainland United States phone service. We also have the modern conveniences such as a washer/dryer, microwave and more.
Hale Manu is perched at the rear of our fully landscaped, two-acre property, providing PRIVACY. Since we live at the front of the property, we work diligently to maintain our homes and provide excellent accommodations. We are also available to answer questions about Hana and steer you in the right direction to your ultimate vacation, whether that means an active time snorkeling, surfing, horseback riding and hiking or just relaxing at the nearby beaches and swimming holes. Hamoa Beach, considered the nicest in town, is just minutes away. We provide boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, beach chairs, beach towels, beach mats, a beach umbrella and a cooler. We can also direct you to local in-house massage therapists or to the local spa for pampering.
The Guest Houses at Malanai are named after the gentle cooling breeze, (named Malanai) known for this area of Hana. We are located just three miles (a five minute drive) outside of Hana Town in the Maka’alae district, which is considered the most highly desired area of Hana. You are sure to fall in love with the picturesque and pastoral landscape, the ever-changing ocean colors and the gentle sound of the waves lulling you to sleep at night. We hope you choose Hale Manu at the Guest Houses at Malanai for your dream vacation in the islands! Please see our website for details on our EXTREMELY competitive rates and policies and feel free to email us with any questions. For a limited time we are offering Springtime specials.

- Hana is what most people think Hawaii is going to look like. This is not the resort side of the island. Hana is for people who are looking for a true Hawaiian experience, with natural beauty, lush tropical foliage, beautiful beaches and incredible hiking. It's a great place to explore or just sit around and soak up the beauty of paradise while drinking a Mai Tai......moreless

We own rental property in California and this cottage was so well outfitted and elegantly done! I learned a lot I thought I already knew about Hospitality! The one day we stayed in from the rain, still felt wonderful with the jungle gardens that surrounded us and the cozy way the cottage is decorated. Everything you need to like an at home local. Cooking in this Kitchen was a joy! Communication with the owners was great; even got to enjoy one of them perform at the local hotel!

My husband and I had the privilege of staying three nights at this wonderful place and we couldn’t agree more with the rave reviews! Hale Manu is a very charming, spacious cottage with a large lanai, surrounded by the privacy of a lovely garden, yet offering a great view of the ocean. Upon entering the cottage you are being welcomed by a wonderful atmosphere; tasteful furnishings and artwork with an antique Hawaiian flair, an airy feeling thanks to the tall, open beam ceilings and cupola; Hawaiian quilts adorning the beds and fresh plumeria and hibiscus blossoms in every room! The cottage is well kept, clean and equipped with anything one could possibly need for a comfortable stay, including a Hawaiian themed library, entertainment center with a large collection of Hawaiian music, fully stocked kitchen, BBQ, as well as a washer/dryer unit. Fall asleep to the soothing sounds of waves crushing ashore, wake up to the beautiful song of the resident cardinals and enjoy a spectacular sunrise with stunning views right from your bedroom window! The owner’s love and care for this piece of paradise, as well as their attention to providing comfort and happiness for their guests is present everywhere. Leokane and Chris were wonderful hosts and we highly recommend the Hale Manu for any traveler seeking a peaceful, clean accommodation in Hana. The location was perfect for what we were looking for: in walking distance to the magnificent Venus Pool and Hamoa Beach, a very short drive to Hana town and all surrounding attractions such as ‘Ohe’o Gulch, Wai’anapanapa Park and the Kahanu Tropical Botanical Gardens with Pi’ilanihale Heiau. One last tip for future travelers: should you be interested in Hawaiian music, don’t miss a chance to see one of your host’s appearances at the nearby Travaasa Hotel. Leokane Pryor is one of Hawaii’s premiere falsetto artists with an amazing talent and captivating voice. It was the icing on the cake of our stay in Hana to be able to watch this great artist in a live performance!!!

We stayed at Hale Manu on 2/27-3/1/2010 and it was wonderful! The day we were to arrive in Hana ended up being the day the tsunami warning was sounded. Naturally it made for a very long day trying to make our way to Hana! Chris and Leokane both called us during the day to make sure we were planning on making the trip & to let us know that the house was set for our arrival no matter how late we might be. The house and grounds were even better than we imagined and Hana was wonderful! Our hosts were kind and considerate and we even got to see Leokane perform at the Hotel before we left. I would recommend Hana and the Guesthouses at Malanai to anyone that loves peace and relaxation in a beautiful setting. Mahalo for sharing your slice of heaven with us we will genuinely never forget it!

We enjoyed our stay at Hale Manu. It is very comfortable, well appointed and maintained and spacious. The kitchen is well equipped and the many tropical touches were fun. The welcoming flowers and slack key guitar music set the tone. The guest houses are well located and convenient to town, beaches and hiking. We enjoyed the National Tropical Botanical Garden in Hana with it's massive heiau (temple) and our tasting tour of Ono organic farms in nearby Kipahulu.

Aloha Chris and Leokane, We had a fantastic experience at Hale Manu. The weather was beautiful, and the location was perfect. Walking distance to so many great spots. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. Even a portable cooler - perfect for the beach! Y'all did an amazing job decorating the place, and we loved flipping though all the fun books at hand. The beds were also very comfortable. And what a treat to have a washer and dryer at hand. That was big help and is almost impossible to find at other rentals. I hope it won't take another 15 years to make it back to Hana, but when we do, we'll certainly know the best place to stay. Thanks again! Haven and Travis

Nov 12-14 2009 Had an amazing time at the "Bird House". We cooked on the deck, cuddled in bed with views of the ocean, and spent two great days exploring Hana. And what a location! It's an easy walk to Hamoa Beach, as well as the Venus Pools, and closer to the State Park (location of the seven sacred pools) than the hotels in town. Plus, it's cozy and warm and a great place for any type of travel. When we return to Hana we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. Thanks! Michael and Kira

This was our 1st visit to Maui and we were fortunate to find this gem for 5 nights. Hale Manu is a wonderful location & property with especially accommodating owners. Great place for quiet, relaxed getaway – bonus if you enjoy fresh avocados, they are available daily right outside the door! Only real obstacle on road from the airport was a freshly fallen tree that we were able to remove with the help of another dozen travelers. Would suggest renting a small vehicle as we chose a full size car and that was a tight fit on a few stretches. Another plus was the wireless internet which allowed my wife to conduct a 2 hour business meeting. Very comfortable mattress and a gourmet kitchen setup. Also, appreciated the availability of body boards, beach chairs, and other swim gear. Weather was a pleasant mixture of sunlight and tropical rains during our stay. Highlight was visiting the Waimoku Falls which were running full and majestic and the Seven Pools, which unfortunately were “flooded” making it impressive to see, but off limits for swimming that day. Already looking forward to coming back. Mahalo, Chris.

Our family of 4 had a great time in this beautiful part of the world, in this incredibly thoughtfully designed house. The warm hosts made sure that we were sent when a hurricane threatened power outages and havoc (it didn't happen. What we'll remember are all the details that they put into making this place, the beautiful music we heard Leokane play up the road one night, and their personal attention to our happiness.

What a wonderful little slice of Heaven on Earth! We all enjoyed the quietness of Hana along with our fun-loving host-dogs, Kimo, Pearl and Bailey. Escaping the heat of Arizona and feeling the cool Hana breezes at night was soothing to our spirits. We thank you so much for the wonderful accommodations...including the Hawaiian music playing when we arrived. Leokane's CD has become one of my favorites! Mahalo nui loa...Sherry Clack

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: Leokane Pryor has long family history in Hana. He is a relative of the colorful Sam Pryor, who was not only responsible for bringing Charles Lindbergh to Kipahulu (just down the road), but was also well known locally for raising Gibbon apes and many other animals which he loved. Charles, Sam, his wife Mary Tay and many of the Gibbons are buried at the famous church in Kipahulu. Leokane has followed in the family tradition by creating his own unique history in the area. He can be heard performing Hawaiian music most Wednesdays and Sundays at the Travaasa Hotel-Hana and he is well known throughout the islands for his beautiful falsetto voice and story telling.
Why the Owner Chose Hana:
Leokane and Chris purchased this property in 2001 and have worked continuously to create a paradise for themselves, their family and friends. Two of the homes on the large property are available for rent, making this unique experience available to the public. As one of only three legally permitted vacation rental properties in the area, The Guest Houses at Malanai are often booked months in advance and well deserving of their consistent #1 TripAdvisor rating and stellar reviews.
The Unique Benefits at this Bed And Breakfast:
The Guest Houses at Malanai are located in the Maka'alae area of Hana, about 3 miles south of Hana Town. This area is generally considered the most desirable of Hana due to its close proximity to world famous Hamoa Beach and the Venus Pool, as well as the gentle breezes and open landscape which keep it cooler and more comfortable than other locations in the area. Maka'alae was once the fishing village of the area and boasts some of the most breathtaking coastline of all Maui. During whale season, it is the perfect place to see their migration and sometimes even hear them playing at night.
