Private vacation rental with the vintage style Hawaii ambiance and decor! Newly refurbished in 2019!

Hale Manu, which means the 'Bird House', is a large two-bedroom guesthouse, privately located in the rear of our property with great ocean views from the spacious deck. The 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, including a large fully equipped kitchen, an all tile bathroom, queen sized beds with high thread count all cotton bedding, propane BBQ and an additional table for dining on the lanai. The ocean facing bedrooms are conducive to romantic sultry evening breezes.

Free high speed wireless internet access, Netflix and Amazon Prime movies, free landline phone service to USA and Canada, washer/dryer, microwave and more. You can also enable your cellphone calls to the internet.

Hale Manu is perched at the rear of our fully landscaped, two-acre property, providing privacy. Hamoa Beach, considered the best in town, is just minutes away. We provide beach fins, chairs and beach towels.

The Hana Guest Houses are in an area named (Malanai) after the gentle cooling breezes, known for this area of Hana. We are located just 3.6 miles (a five minute drive) outside of Hana Town center 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 Hana Guest Houses for your dream vacation in the islands!

This is a special place and radiates Aloha. So glad to have discovered this gem. Mahalo

Very nice to come back to at the end of some busy days! Had everything we needed to feel comfortable in a home away from home, plus lush surroundings and close to the beach to head to for a different type of relaxation when we wanted. Very clean and well cared for. Owners checked on us a few times to make sure all was well given the length of time we stayed (11 days) and were very thoughtful and friendly.

Our group of four spent one night at Hale Manu and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The house is beautiful, beds were comfortable, the kitchen has everything you could possibly need, and the view and sound of the wind in the trees and the ocean beyond were like therapy. It's an easy walk along the road to Hamoa Beach and the Venus pool--both of which were far more stunning and enjoyable than the crowded experience at the nearby Waiʻānapanapa State Park. Communication with the property managers was excellent. If we ever have a chance to return to Hana, we would book a week here in a heartbeat.

Kitchen had a good range of appliances including a blender we used to make healthy smoothies. You can tell that the hosts take great pride in their rental property as everything was neat, tastefully furnished and decorated and clean.

My partner and I stayed at this place and it was exactly as advertised. The house is well built and open and airy, with all of the kitchen amenities you will need (and then some). The attention to detail is great and the communication with the manager/owner was just the right amount and so easy. Definitely recommend staying here in this beautiful house, with perfectly ripe avocados dropping in your yard every couple of hours, and close proximity to some of the best nature and food that Hana has to offer.

Perfect and exactly what we were looking for. Great location. Beautiful house with an amazing very well-stocked kitchen. Surrounded by lush gardens and birds chirping. Great views and getting to listen to the waves overnight was an unexpected bonus. Very easy arrival process. Highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.

Being tucked away in the back of the property provides complete privacy. Lovely to come into the house already aired out with windows open, fans blowing and Hawaiian music playing. Very clean, would love to stay again.

We stayed for 3 nights. It was a beautiful property. Really glad that we stayed in January, any other time of year would have probably been too warm to be comfortable since there is no air-conditioning. There are a lot of fans and we really enjoyed cooking in the big kitchen while our friends sat at the bar. Downsides include hard mattresses, hard chairs and not very comfortable couches. It is a beautiful location and really one of the only places we could find in Hana with 2 bedrooms.

The House has lots of charm, Location was perfect. The management team are very helpful when we were booking. While visiting, we needed only to call the first number provided to let them know we were leaving early in the morning and they answered right away. You will enjoy your visit here.

We loved our 3 night stay at the Hana Guest House. We highly recommend this if you want a break from the touristy bustle of the west coast of Maui and want to spend some relaxing time in the rainforest. Grounds are beautiful with lots of fruit trees. Lots to do in the house and nearby. Would come back for sure!

This charming guest house exceeded our expectations! Tucked away off the road at the back of the property, we had plenty of privacy to enjoy the lush beauty of Hana and the surrounding area. The house was clean, well stocked, and had a chill vibe that was just what we were looking for. The house is just outside of the town but very accessible to it. The owner clearly cares for the house and was responsive and helpful. We would highly recommend this accommodation and would love to return!

We are 2 older couples. We stayed here some years ago and were pleased to find it available again. Everything about this place is lovely.

Hana is magical and for me real Hawaii is not rows of condos with hordes of people. Staying at Hana Manu is what I want to experience while being in Hawaii - the real Hawaii without being contrived. "It's the real deal'!

Spent three nights here and it was lovely. The house has a lot of charm and great views. It’s perfect for a remote getaway.

Hale Manu was a beautiful place to stay in Hana. The property was beautiful and lush. The spacious lanai was amazing. We did get a morning visit from one of the neighborhood dogs -which we loved- he was very sweet (and looked well fed!). The house itself was just as pictured. We really enjoyed spending a few days in Hana to take in all of the amazing sights along the Hana highway. Mahalo for offering such an amazing place to stay! The Simpsons

Property is a two bedroom plantation style home with a deck/lanai with the ocean and the distance. We enjoyed spotting whales and enjoying birds singing all around us. Great location close to Venus pool. Nice kitchen and good communication with Ra the property manager.

Property is really beautiful, and the home is well maintained. This is a true Hawaiian bungalow and it was exactly what we wanted. You are in a lush and tropical area of Maui, so if geckos bother you, this is not the place for you. Beautiful orchids growing outside. We would definitely want to stay there again if we return.

All the comforts you would hope for while placing you close to the best beaches and hiking trails. Quiet with the right amount of birds singing. Quick WiFi allows the streaming of your favorite Hawaiian music. Great place.

I was made to feel so welcome at Hale Manu. It is secluded, quite, convenient to Hana and things to see and do in the area, and the house was incredibly clean. Everything needed for my stay, and more, was provided. Highly recommended.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the guest house in Hana. The location was perfect - close enough to town and great beaches, but still very quiet and tucked away. The house was comfortable with all necessary amenities and kitchen was well stocked. The local recommendations provided by our host were very helpful. Thai by Pranee was a big hit, and we only wish to have discovered Hamoa beach earlier in the trip - a beautiful and quiet spot, especially in the morning, great for snorkeling

My husband and I decided to stay 3 nights near Hana in order to fully experience everything in the area and we could not be happier with our stay at Hale Manu! We were incredibly happy with the accommodations-we had plenty of space and loved keeping the windows open and feeling the breeze through the house. We spent every morning and evening on the lanai watching sunrise and the stars. The kitchen included everything we could have possibly needed. The location was very convenient for many local spots including the southern entrance of Haleakala National Park, Black Sand Beach, Hamoa Beach, Venus Pools, and more. We would highly recommend Hale Manu for your trip to Maui!


Angela R.

The house was absolutely a delight! My partner and I enjoyed visiting the sites in Hana, going to the local market, and cooking breakfast while watching the sunrise. The location was perfect. All the parks, beaches, and city were easy to get to. Mahalo for letting us stay and enjoy Hana!

The house had a very large kitchen, which made it possible for several people to work on food prep. It was very quiet and peaceful. Loved having the windows open 24/7. A bath mat in the shower would be good to add for safety. Also, putting small rugs on top of larger ones made tripping an issue. We collected the small rugs and set them aside during the visit. Great location. Would definitely book this house again.

The home was nicely outfitted for my family’s needs. Lovely setting with ocean view and close proximity to all the Hana area has to offer.

Loved this place- got to all the hikes before the masses. Farmers market in Hana was nice. Did the lava tube, Venus pool and of course the hike through the bamboo forest to the water fall…! Thanks for sharing your wonderful location with us!!!

First off, if you are going to do all the hard work to get to Hana do yourself a favor stay at the Hāna-Maui Resort. Secondly, I might have missed this, but there is no air conditioning in the house. Now the really bad stuff starts... The second bedroom was infested with bugs. When I called the owner/caretaker they acknowledged that they were already aware of this problem (it would have been nice to know). I assume their response will be it's Hana. Ok then, tell me about this inconvenience before I book the house. We had to move the mattress out of the bedroom and into the living room floor. Finally, here's the real kicker, I'm actually a very reasonable guy, and when the owner/caretaker told me they were going to refund me for one of the nights I figured no harm no foul. They lied, I never got the refund. DON"T STAY HERE!!!

A perfect cottage to vacation in Maui! Everything you could possibly imagine and more! Location for what we were looking to do was great! Contact with the host was excellent. If I ever make it back to Maui I would definitely stay here again!

The house is in a beautiful setting . A few things need updating : The refrigerator had a broken shelf when we arrive . It was struggling to stay cold and ice was a once a day buy. The furniture is old and unstable . There is a swarm of carpenter ants on the kitchen ceiling every evening Otherwise it is a very nice house with lots of little conveniences ; in the kitchen and throughout . We enjoyed our stay and think by paying attention to the former issues would have made it seam less. I would recommend this house .

The property was perfect. Very peaceful and relaxing, and conveniently close to some of Hana’s treasures. Hope to return!!

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



March 2010
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.



March 2010
Mahalo to Leokane and Chris for offering their wonderful home to us and our girls. Hana was a perfect getaway in Maui and offered a great variety of swims in lava pools, waterfalls and great beaches (Hamoa in particular!) The house was comforting and relaxing, well-stocked and a peaceful place to enjoy the beautiful surrounds. We even enjoyed the ripe avocados and passionfruit on the property! When we come back to Hana, we will certainly wish to stay here again!

We had a wonderful time! A multi-day visit to Hana is what everyone needs now and then. The property offered seclusion with comfort. It was very quiet, relaxing, restful. Thank you for providing all the hawaiian music. Having a washer/dryer was a nice plus. We enjoyed using the deck. And thanks for the loaner beach chairs and umbrella. We also liked visits from all the neighbor dogs.



March 2010
Next time I plan to be in Hana I will book early to make sure I can stay here again. We had a lovely time. The house was phenomenally stocked, we had every kitchen item we needed and more, the beach accessories were varied and just what we needed, and the neighborhood dogs were more than welcoming (they would play when we wanted to play and disappear when asked!). I highly recommend these cottages.



March 2010
Dear Chris and Leokane, WOW!!! Your beautiful spot in paradise is made even more fantastic by the care you take to make your guests feel at home. Of course, at our house we are never greeted by beautiful blossoms scattered everywhere, origami towels, and soothing Hawaiian music. But these are comforts we could easily get used to. We had never stayed in Hana before and it is truly magical. If I had a dear friend visiting I could not have done more than you have to create such a peaceful, beautiful, stress-less environment. Our most sincere mahalo and we hope to see you in August. Helen and Peter



March 2010
Dear Chris and Leokane, Mahalo for a making our stay at Hale Manu everything I hoped it would be. I was impressed from the get go during the communication phase of booking this part of our trip. You were quick to respond to all of my questions via email and provided some wonderful recommendations. Once we arrived in Hana, the directions you provided were excellent, and we very much enjoyed the welcoming Hawaiian music and fresh plumeria blooms sprinkled throughout the house upon arrival. My friends and I loved our morning sunrise walks. Upon return, we'd fire up a pot of coffee and soak in the amazing ocean view from the deck. The house was stocked with everything we needed and it was a nice perk to have wireless internet. Two highlights included our hike to Waimoku Falls and Red Sand Beach. I have already recommnended the house to two friends, and I look forward to a future visit! Thanks again for making my birthday trip one that I will never forget. Aloha, Sarah Coste
