The house exceeded our expectations. Everything about it was beautiful. The lush tropical forest provided an extra layer of privacy and gave us the perfect escape from busy, everyday life. The property is only conveniently located near all of the parks and beach attractions. (Black Sand Beach and the Bamboo Forest is amazing).

My new husband and I had an amazing time at the Hale Ulu Lulu Cottage aka Malanai. When we first arrived we were blown away by all the sweet touches that were added; flowers strewn about the cottage and beautiful Orchids in all the rooms. I felt the personal touch right away and could tell that this home really meant...

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend trip at the Hale Ulu Lulu Cottage. This cottage is beautiful, well maintained, and has all the amenities of a home. The view out the front door is mesmerizing. Can't wait to return!!!

We loved this guest house. We reserved the 1 bedroom cottage. It was perfect. leokane and Chris have thought of everything a guest would need in this remote area. The cottage is decorated in a manner that reflects it's early Hawaiian origins. We love the color palate they selected that brightens up the interior. The location feels secluded despite the...

We had a wonderful time staying at the Hale Ulu Lulu cottage for one night in April 2013. The cottage is very spacious and clean, and has a very comfortable tropical feel. Our only regret was that we did not stay longer! Our first night we brought beach chairs and wine to nearby Hamoa beach. What a gorgeous beach! We...

We couldn’t ask for a more romantic setting for our Hawaiian getaway. The Guest Houses at Malanai, nestled against Hana's lush tropical backdrop, are utterly charming. Our cottage was spacious, immaculate, and completely comfortable; so much better than anything a big resort could ever offer. After each full day of sightseeing (hiking at Haleakala National Park, swimming at Hamoa Beach...

The only problem we had with our recent stay at the Guest Houses at Malanai was that we only had five nights. Our cottage, tucked privately away into a lush flower filled garden, made us feel as though we had stepped back in time to an earlier romantic era. Each piece of furniture and work of art seemed to be...

Hale Ulu Lulu was so welcoming when we arrived that it actually had an emotional effect on me. Obviously a lot of care and love have gone into appointing and maintaining the bungalow. We spent much time just relaxing there because of the serenty and comfort that the owners have created. We also appreciated tips amd details about food, hikes...

Ah, the reality check of arriving back home to our cold and rainy clime, trying to extend the sensory paradise that we lived for our much-too-brief 2 nights at Hale Manu! The house--where can I begin? It’s real, true Hawaii, as if someone spent a lifetime assembling the perfect guest home. Discovering all of its touches and charms takes days...

We stayed at Hale Ulu Lulu for 3 nights. On entering the guest house my husband was almost speechless- he kept saying this place is so cool! There is so much attention to detail here with view to your comfort. The decor is fabulous, the bed is comfortable, towels are plush etc. It was spotlessly clean on arriving and very...

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
