Leokane and Chris! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. It is extremely comfortable, perfectly located and our favorite spot to stay in Hana. So obviously full of your love and care. We can't wait to come back! Victoria and Levin, Seattle WA

We just returned and are still on are "Hana" high. Leokane and Chris have an eye for detail and unmatched hospitality. Our family of four completely enjoyed our Hana home and will be back. This is a very special place and not for the big resort-loving golfers. This is Hawaii at its best: authentic music, unvarnished nature, spirited adventure and...

We have stayed in Hana several times and this is the best place so far. We stayed in the one bedroom cottage. It was so tastefully decorated and well furnished. It is very well equipped for the modern traveler who wants to get away from it all, but retain the modern conveniences of life--Internet, IPOD connector for music, TV if...

We stayed in the one bedroom cottage for three nights in December and loved it. If you are looking for peace and quiet and for time to slow down this is the place. Just one of those places that you hate to leave. Make sure that you don't leave any food out as the ants will find it!

We stayed for only one night during a 12 day stay on Maui. And our only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer. From the exceptional cleaniliness and comfort of the cottage, to the well-equipped kitchen, to the peaceful lanai, to the lush, tranquil setting and magical sunrise, we could not have asked for anything better. Directions to get there...

From the moment we followed hosts Leokane Pryor & Chris Harrington's very clear instructions to Malanai, let ourselves into our cottage (it was wide open, awaiting our arrival!), and made ourselves at home, we fell in love with this charming place. Set in tranquil, lush, and magical surroundings, the decor of the cottage itself is the epitome of Island Chic,...

We spent our anniversary night at Hale Ulu Lulu during a 10 day trip to Ka'anapali. The road to Hana is a great experience and the jewel is Hamoa. The fresh flowers everywhere in our cottage added to the beautiful decor. (Nice job Chris). Chris & Leokane were wonderful hosts. We went to Hotel Hana for dinner (and breakfast) and...

We stayed at Hale Ulu Lulu for 2 nights at the end of August. Hana and this wonderful home could not have been a better place to begin celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary! The home looks just like the pictures and there are numerous thoughtful touches provided to make your stay special. There are way too many extras provided to...

I stayed at the 2 bedroom cottage in early August for 3 nights with my partner. The cottage was bigger than we expected and very well equipped. The free wifi, television and cd and dvd players were a nice modern touch to the otherwise rustic feel of the property. The fresh coffee beans and grinder were an added bonus. The...

We stayed at Chris and Leokane's 2 bedroom cottage for two nights. Excellent place: cool breezes at night, fans and mosquito nets (which we didn't need, but our younger son did). Unexpectedly terrific touches when we arrived: flowers everywhere, Hawaiian music playing, really great avocados (from the property!) in a bowl, coffee beans, and a very nice quality kitchen. The...

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
