"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 the area, and while always being available if needed, gave us our space to enjoy our time in this beautiful part of Maui. The location is wonderful; never traveling more than 12 miles in either direction, we had daily adventures visiting Charles Lindbergh’s grave, Haleakala National Park, Hamoa Beach (walking to it along the shoreline), Koki Beach, Hana Town, Hana Bay, & Wai’anapanapa State Park. The cottages are so nice, we could then spend the rest of our days on the property while reading, relaxing, napping, enjoying wine.... Simply wonderful. And the ocean views from the front of Hale Ulu Lulu & the lanai of Hale Manu were gorgeous, particularly at sunrise & sunset. The tropical plants, flowers & fresh fruit growing on the grounds make the setting like a small botanical garden. Per advice provided by other reviewers, we stocked up at Mana Foods in Pa’ia before traveling the Road to Hana. The full kitchens then let us prepare our meals easily, conveniently, & economically all week. We look forward to returning to the Guest Houses at Malanai in the future."
