Hale Manu, which means the 'Bird House', is our larger two-bedroom guesthouse, privately located in the rear of our property with phenomenal ocean views. The spacious 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 and professionally decorated the home, including a large fully equipped kitchen (a kitchen inventory is available on our website), an all tile bathroom with new fixtures, queen sized beds with high thread count all cotton bedding and teak steamer chairs, gas barbeque and an additional table for dining on the lanai. The ocean facing bedrooms are conducive to romantic sultry evening breezes.

We take a lot of pride in our homes, as is evident from the many comments provided by previous guests (please see our online guestbook accessible from our website). Hale Manu is thoughtfully furnished with a fun vintage Hawaiian flair, including a beautifully refurbished 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 furnishings and grab a book off the bamboo shelves to relax the night away or choose a DVD from the small collection we supply. We also have a collection of coffee table books about Hawaii and Polynesia and, since the home is the “bird house” we have bird books, binoculars for the avid bird watchers. We have done our best to consider all the details, like comfortable linens, nice soaps, whole bean quality coffee and green tea for your first day and for those of you who need to stay connected, we have high speed wireless internet access and unlimited, free mainland United States phone service. We also have the modern conveniences such as a washer/dryer, microwave and more.

Hale Manu is perched at the rear of our fully landscaped, two-acre property, providing PRIVACY. Since we live at the front of the property, we work diligently to maintain our homes and provide excellent accommodations. We are also available to answer questions about Hana and steer you in the right direction to your ultimate vacation, whether that means an active time snorkeling, surfing, horseback riding and hiking or just relaxing at the nearby beaches and swimming holes. Hamoa Beach, considered the nicest in town, is just minutes away. We provide boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, beach chairs, beach towels, beach mats, a beach umbrella and a cooler. We can also direct you to local in-house massage therapists or to the local spa for pampering.

The Guest Houses at Malanai are named after the gentle cooling breeze, (named Malanai) known for this area of Hana. We are located just three miles (a five minute drive) outside of Hana Town 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 Guest Houses at Malanai for your dream vacation in the islands! Please see our website for details on our EXTREMELY competitive rates and policies and feel free to email us with any questions. For a limited time we are offering Springtime specials.

Leokane Pryor has long family history in Hana. He is a relative of the colorful Sam Pryor, who was not only responsible for bringing Charles Lindbergh to Kipahulu (just down the road), but was also well known locally for raising Gibbon apes and many other animals which he loved. Charles, Sam, his wife Mary Tay and many of the Gibbons are buried at the famous church in Kipahulu. Leokane has followed in the family tradition by creating his own unique history in the area. He can be heard performing Hawaiian music most Wednesdays and Sundays at the Travaasa Hotel-Hana and he is well known throughout the islands for his beautiful falsetto voice and story telling.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Leokane and Chris purchased this property in 2001 and have worked continuously to create a paradise for themselves, their family and friends. Two of the homes on the large property are available for rent, making this unique experience available to the public. As one of only three legally permitted vacation rental properties in the area, The Guest Houses at Malanai are often booked months in advance and well deserving of their consistent #1 TripAdvisor rating and stellar reviews.

The Guest Houses at Malanai are located in the Maka'alae area of Hana, about 3 miles south of Hana Town. This area is generally considered the most desirable of Hana due to its close proximity to world famous Hamoa Beach and the Venus Pool, as well as the gentle breezes and open landscape which keep it cooler and more comfortable than other locations in the area. Maka'alae was once the fishing village of the area and boasts some of the most breathtaking coastline of all Maui. During whale season, it is the perfect place to see their migration and sometimes even hear them playing at night.

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!

Leokane and Chris have a really peaceful, well-
located and nicely taken care-of property. Their
kitchen had everything needed, they had all kinds
of beach gear to use, and the local dogs who come
to get to know you are friendly and fun. The two-
bedroom Hale Manu was the perfect size for my
wife, daughter and me. We had a perfect four days.

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.

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.

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.

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

Dear Chris & Leokane,
Mahalo for our lovely time at Hale Manu. It was truly a most peaceful and relaxing vacation. The house was quite perfect for us. Thanks for all the info and help in planning our trip there. It really helped for our first visit to Hawaii. So many lovely places to go in the area. We also enjoyed seeing Leokane at the hotel. It was the perfect ending to our week there. We will tell everyone we know of your lovely home. As I stated in the house guestbook. Down the Hana Highway we came and we will never be the same.

Chris & Leokane,

We had a wonderful time staying in your paradise getaway. The house was so welcoming and comfortable with everything we needed. Hana is truly an example of Old Hawaii with a charm all its own. Thanks for taking such good care of our requests when we needed to call.

Mahalo,
Kathy and Guy

When we walked into the Hale Manu, we felt right at home. The decor, colors. design, art work on walls, flowers in soap dish and beds were so welcoming. Thank you Chris and Leokane for a lovely stay. We shall pass along your website to many of our traveling friends. Our greeting committe of Ua and Kimo were the best. Mahalo, Charlotte and Colin.

If I could choose one word to describe our 5 day
stay at Hale Manu it would be magical. Liz and I
had a fantastic time. We loved the privacy, the view
from the deck, but most of all, we felt as though
Hale Manu was our home. No hotel can make you
feel that way. Our stay in Hana was a dream come
true and we can't wait to return to paradise
