Malanai

Malanai is the name the ancient Hawaiians gave the gentle breeze that often cools the tropical days in Hana. The Guest Houses at Malanai seemed the perfect name for our property, which often enjoys the Malanai breeze off the nearby ocean. Our hana guest houses sit on nearly two acres of tenderly landscaped grounds and are nicely set apart, each with unobstructed ocean views.

Malanai is the name the ancient Hawaiians gave the gentle breeze that often cools the tropical days in Hana. The Guest Houses at Malanai seemed the perfect name for our property, which often enjoys the Malanai breeze off the nearby ocean. Our guest houses sit on nearly two acres of tenderly landscaped grounds and are nicely set apart, each with unobstructed ocean views. We have designed and decorated them to have a distinct style and personality.

Each home has it's own yard and outdoor setting for the private enjoyment of our guests. You will enter into a setting of gracious lawns and verdant tropical foliage. When in season, we will provide fruit from the garden (including Papaya, Lime, Starfruit, Banana, Avocado, Kaffir Lime, Pomegranate, Lychee, Passion Fruit, Surinam Cherry and more).

Equal to the unsurpassed quality of our guest houses is our excellent location. We are located in the Maka’alae District, conveniently just three miles south of Hana town. Maka’alae is known as one of Hana’s premiere areas, as it enjoys gentle breezes (resulting in fewer mosquitoes!), more sunshine and absolutely gorgeous views of the ocean and famous Hana landscape.

Our property borders the Maka’alae pasture, a pristine stretch of land along the majestic coastline belonging to the Hana Ranch. This is the perfect place for long walks along the ocean and coastal bluffs, playing in tide pools or surfing at “Sandbars”. The world famous Hamoa Beach and the breathtaking Waioka (Venus) Pool, two of Hana’s greatest treasures, are both just a fifteen minute walk or two minutes drive away. (See About Hana).

At night you will gaze at a magical canopy of stars while listening to the sound of the waves on the shore.
