Three miles south of Hana Town lies the glorious compound of Malanai, named for the gentle breezes that cool its leafy, fragrant gardens and two handsomely restored, plantation-style cottages with ocean views. Hale Manu (“Bird House”) offers two bedrooms with vintage rattan furniture; a modern bathroom with a fun mix of bamboo trim, stone floors, shiplap walls, and tiled shower/tub; an airy great room (living, dining, and kitchen) with soaring beamed cupola ceiling; and a large deck with recliners and outdoor dining furniture. Hale Ulu Lulu (“Breadfruit-Shaded House”), built in the 1900s to house managers of the Hana Sugar Plantation, sports a mix of charming antique details (claw-foot tub, beadboard cabinets) and contemporary luxuries (Brazilian mahogany floors, granite and koa kitchen counters). Both come with stacked washer-dryers, gas BBQs, and beach gear. Hamoa Beach and Waioka Pool (an oceanfront swimming hole also known as Venus Pool) are within a 15-minute walk or brief drive.
