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...

My husband and I spent four nights at Hale Manu. We wished we had stayed longer. The place is immaculate and beautiful. When we entered the cottage, Hawaiian music was playing and fresh flowers were everywhere. We loved the kitchen, it was amazingly well equipped. We cook a lot and are pretty picky about the kitchen stuff. Once we bought...

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,...

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
