My husband and I had the privilege of staying three nights at this wonderful place and we couldn’t agree more with the rave reviews! Hale Manu is a very charming, spacious cottage with a large lanai, surrounded by the privacy of a lovely garden, yet offering a great view of the ocean. Upon entering the cottage you are being welcomed by a wonderful atmosphere; tasteful furnishings and artwork with an antique Hawaiian flair, an airy feeling thanks to the tall, open beam ceilings and cupola; Hawaiian quilts adorning the beds and fresh plumeria and hibiscus blossoms in every room! The cottage is well kept, clean and equipped with anything one could possibly need for a comfortable stay, including a Hawaiian themed library, entertainment center with a large collection of Hawaiian music, fully stocked kitchen, BBQ, as well as a washer/dryer unit. Fall asleep to the soothing sounds of waves crushing ashore, wake up to the beautiful song of the resident cardinals and enjoy a spectacular sunrise with stunning views right from your bedroom window! The owner’s love and care for this piece of paradise, as well as their attention to providing comfort and happiness for their guests is present everywhere. Leokane and Chris were wonderful hosts and we highly recommend the Hale Manu for any traveler seeking a peaceful, clean accommodation in Hana. The location was perfect for what we were looking for: in walking distance to the magnificent Venus Pool and Hamoa Beach, a very short drive to Hana town and all surrounding attractions such as ‘Ohe’o Gulch, Wai’anapanapa Park and the Kahanu Tropical Botanical Gardens with Pi’ilanihale Heiau. One last tip for future travelers: should you be interested in Hawaiian music, don’t miss a chance to see one of your host’s appearances at the nearby Travaasa Hotel. Leokane Pryor is one of Hawaii’s premiere falsetto artists with an amazing talent and captivating voice. It was the icing on the cake of our stay in Hana to be able to watch this great artist in a live performance!!!
