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. 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 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 3.6 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!

About Ramaia Collins
Mary Carol Cabibi and Steven Gayle have been in love with the Hana area for more than twenty years. In 2016 they learned that Chris and Leokane Harrington-Pryor were interested in selling the Guest Houses at Malanai, and by April Mary Carol and Steve had become the new proprietors. They now live on the property with their family.
Ramaia Collins purchased this House in 2016
Why Ramaia Collins chose Hāna
The previous owners purchased this property in 2001 and worked continuously to create a paradise for themselves, their family and friends. In 2005 they began to offer this unique experience to the public. The new proprietors have retained all of the staff, and have maintained all of the landscaping, amenities, and warm aloha that the Guest houses at Malanai have become famous for. Only two of the homes on the large property are 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 are well deserving of their consistent #1 rating and stellar reviews.
What makes this House unique
The Guest Houses at Malanai are located in the Maka'alae area of Hana, about 3 miles south of Hana Town. This area is 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. Our rental cottages are both situated in a completely private setting, amid glorious landscaping that has been lovingly nurtured by the previous owners for more than a decade.

Paradise in Hana
We stayed a little over a week in Hana and loved it! The place was larger than we thought and the hospitality was great. We look forward to returning in the future to the "bird house" :-)
Beautiful house in a wonderful setting.
Lovely home, perfect location, pure Hana!
We've never stayed at a home so lovingly outfitted for enjoyment. All the accoutrements that make a house a home were there for us! The home is a beautiful example of Hawaiian design and is so comfy. So thoughtfully appointed, there is so much love there. We walked to and from Hamoa beach every day; it's 0.9 mile each way, which is a perfect distance. Can walk to Waioka pool (Venus pool) too, it's 0.4 mile away. Great ocean view and breeze sitting out on the deck. Super washer/dryer! Can't say enough good things about this lovely home. We stayed for 5 nights.
Clean, tidy and fully equipped to make it feel like a home away from home.
Everything necessary and more for a fantastic stay in Hana. Beautifully and tastefully furnished and decorated. Great kitchen. Comfy bed and lounging areas in and outdoors.
Nice House Near Hana
We spent the last two nights of our Maui vacation at Hale Manu. The cottage is very well-appointed, clean and comfortable, with a great tiki theme that is perfect for the tropical rainforest environment. The grounds and garden are beautiful, with flowers out of every window. Excellent hiking by the seven sacred pools in the national park and boogie boarding at nearby Hamoa beach (both of the boogie boards at the house were cracked, though still usable). Wish we could have spent (at least) another night.
Hana is what most people think Hawaii is going to look like. This is not the resort side of the island. Hana is for people who are looking for a true Hawaiian experience, with natural beauty, lush tropical foliage, beautiful beaches and incredible hiking. It's a great place to explore or just sit around and soak up the beauty of paradise while drinking a Mai Tai...Our property is located 3.6 miles south of Hana town in the Hamoa/Maka'alae district and is walking distance to world famous Hamoa Beach and the Venus Pool (Waioka Pond). Our property faces the pristine Hana Ranch coastal pasture and coastline- great for hiking and exploring!
