House of Birds did not dissappoint
Absolutely beautiful and very homey environment. Hale Manu was perfect for those looking for a less touristy, more laid back time in Hawaii. Waking up to the sounds of both the jungle and the ocean was so lovely, the house has a wonderful breeze that passes through and the layout is nice and open so you feel like you're at one with the nature that surrounds you. Hana is adorable, but very small so plan accordingly when it comes to food. Overall, this was the trip I was looking for when coming to this side of Maui, and this rental really set the stage and was the perfect home base.
Relaxing Hana Visit
We loved the comfort and privacy of the Hale Manu cottage. It was a convenient location to sites both north and south of Hana. Starting the day sitting on the deck beneath the giant avocado tree was a pleasure. The kitchen was fully supplied for eating in. There was plenty of space to relax. The owners supplied just about everything you would need to enjoy the local beachs - beach towels, snorkel gear, boogie boards, folding chairs. Wish we could have stayed longer than 3 days.
Hana is Heavenly - The Promotion for this place exaggerates
It is not "by" Hamoa Beach. It is misleading to suggest that it is. It is in the vicinity, you could walk there, but "by the beach" is an exaggeration. Similarly the place is nice, but I would hardly describe the decor as "impeccable".
1 bathroom for 4 people hardly qualifies as impeccable in my view. No air conditioning when the temperatures are in the 80's can make sleep challenging. I prefer more accurate, less inflated descriptions. You can see the blue of the ocean above the trees in the distance but again "ocean views" suggests more to me than what you find here. There are many other places in Hana where the Ocean Views (including the beaches and expanse of the shoreline) is right outside your door. Not here. 3 stars. No more than that in our view. Suggestion to the owners - be who you are. It's plenty good enough. You don't need to pretend to be something you aren't. I guess "inflated" descriptions are common in real estate but it seems out of place to sell vacation renatls in an environment where you are going to get feedback.
Owner’s Response: " Gosh – we’re so sorry that this guest was disappointed in any way! These guests, who stayed just 2 nights must have missed all of the detail in our listing. In our VRBO write up we provide a lengthy description of Hale Manu including a map showing our exact location, number of bathrooms and 17 photographs depicting our décor, landscaping and ocean views. The Hawaiiana (vintage Hawaiian) in the house is all original and collected over many years – we simply adore it, as do virtually most all of our other guests (just read our reviews !)
We know from living on the property for years that we can walk to either Hamoa beach or the Venus Pools in about 20 minutes (in either direction) – a spectacular hike that many of our guests tell us was the highlight of their visit. Or you can decide to drive and arrive at either Hamoa or the Venus pools in about 2 to 4 minutes. As dozens of our guests have pointed out in their reviews, Hale Manu is lovingly maintained, charming, and perfectly located for a relaxing stay in Hana. We have many many repeat guests who seek out Hale Manu guest house and its wonderful location.
Hana town is very spread out and there are no houses that are virtually beach front, like you would find at the big hotels on the developed other side of the island. Any house that is right next to the beach would have all the beach traffic. This house is just the perfect distance to the beaches.
Yes, tropical Hawaii is warm in the midday and cools off nicely in the evening. This house has 3 Casablanca high quality ceiling fans and 3 floor fans when desired. None of the vacation rentals on the Hana side have AC. We are blessed with 10-15 mph NE trade winds that keep the Hana side mostly just right. Most of our guests actually feel cool at night and use blankets. Just keep the windows open and enjoy the sound of the surf crashing on the not to distant shoreline.
The Perfect Place For Our Family of Four
This charming place had everything we needed to relax and unwind within the area’s beautiful, tropical surroundings. We loved the space, comfort, and view provided, and the property is in a great location,, allowing us to take full advantage of the Hana sites/amenities/beaches and Haleakala National Park (home to the Seven Sacred Pools and a fantastic hike with waterfalls and an amazing bamboo forest). We would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking to stay near Hana (and you should spend some time here).
Beautiful and serene location
This was the perfect retreat to end my week in Maui. The place is very clean. I thought Hana might have a lot of bugs but I barely saw any at our place. The house is set back from the road but I still woke up to the sound of the waves.
Thank you for your visit, you folks were the greatest guests, please do come back again for a longer stay as you mentioned.
Property was exactly as advertised and meet all our expectations.
We enjoyed two wonderful days and nights in Hana. So much to do and see in the area right around Hana. The property was a great home base to explore from and peaceful place to come back to after each adventure.
Hana es lo que la mayoría de la gente piensa Hawai va a parecer. Este no es el lado turístico de la isla. Hana es para personas que están en busca de una verdadera experiencia hawaiana, con belleza natural, exuberante follaje tropical, hermosas playas e increíble senderismo. Es un gran lugar para explorar o simplemente sentarse y disfrutar de la belleza del paraíso mientras bebe un Mai Tai ... Nuestra propiedad se encuentra 3. 6 millas al sur de la ciudad de Hana en el distrito Hamoa / Maka'alae y está a poca distancia famosa playa de Hamoa y la Venus Pool (Waioka Pond). Nuestra propiedad se enfrenta a la prístina pastos costera Hana Ranch y coastline- ideal para practicar senderismo y explorar!
