Hale Manu, located on the Property of Malanai, just three miles past Hana Town. Click here for specific rates and availability.


Hale Manu underwent major renovations in 2004 including a new kitchen with new appliances. As with Hale Ulu Lulu, we offer it extremely well equipped (see guesthouse amenities). The spacious Hawaiian styled architecture includes open beamed ceilings and a large center cupola for great airflow.

Both bedrooms have ocean views and at night you will hear the surf crashing in the distance. The guest house is furnished with a fun vintage Hawaiian flare, including a 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 couch and grab a book off the bamboo shelves to relax the night away. We have a collection of coffee table books about Hawaii and Polynesia, which can be enjoyed during your stay. We even have bird books and binoculars for the avid bird watchers!

Hale Manu sits perched up at the rear of the property. There is a large deck off the house with a gas BBQ, outdoor dining table and chairs and teak “steamer” lounge chairs. Enjoy sunning with great ocean views and breezes.

In the evening, dine under the stars while surrounded by the beautiful gardens.

Both of our guest houses have stack washer/dryers, tub and shower combinations and enjoy the convenience of “on the grid” electricity, telephone, wifi, cable and water.
