Guestbook comments from the owner
Aloha! (family group from Canada..parents, grandparents, two college student sons and an 8 year old..visit 3/31 - 4/11/2013))

I cannot believe we have only one day left! (My parents have 2). Our stay in your lovely home has been fantastic. Great accommodations for our whole party, especially the openness to the outside of the house, it's just great. Couches for everyone and a super garden with the wall of trees separating it from the road. Today we swam with the dolphins what a rush!

I'd like to thank you for making your jewel of a house available to us for our family vacation. We met one of your neighbors too and we're given the quiet group award! Aloha Maggie PS your collection of snorkeling gear is impressive.

We live in northern California and have relatives on the Big Island. We enjoy many recreational sports including backpacking, skiing, hiking, golfing, hunting and fishing and of course snorkeling and kayaking in Hawaii.

Melouise Pfeffer purchased this house in 2000

The community of Napoopoo, at the edge of pristine Kealakekua Bay, is quite small and there are very few opportunities to purchase property there. When this home came on the market we jumped on it with the encouragement of my step-mother who lives nearby. Our entire family has benefited from the opportunity to spend vacations at Hale Hana Hou and we have enjoyed success with the vacation rental, forming many warm relationships with our guests.

Well, of course, it feels like home every time we go over to Hawaii. We've had many repeat guests who feel the same way, some that have come back 5 years in a row. Looking out the windows at all the lovely palms and lush vegetation, feeling the ocean breeze while sitting on the lanai with morning coffee and listening to the birds singing, walking down to the bay to see if the dolphins are in...all mean Hale Hana Hou. And of course all the activities listed on the web site: snorkeling, kayaking, hiking, sightseeing, driving down to the volcano, driving up to Waimea or in to Kona for Slack Key Guitar concerts. Wonderful!

FORTH VISIT WAS A CHARM!

  • 5 of 5
Wow, what a delightful place to base out of while visiting the Big Inland! Kealakekua Bay offers so many areas to explore and the locals are warm and friendly. Just two blocks away at Manini Beach, while taking in a beautiful Hawaiian sunset, my wife met a Yoga instructor who had taught classes around the world. They hooked up and shared several mornings together while my son and I hiked down to Captain Cook Monument for snorkeling or we used the house SUP (paddle board) and enjoyed the area just a couple of blocks away. And speaking of the house, the pictures on the web don’t truly capture its warmth and beauty. It’s much nicer in person. Thanks for an amazing vacation, Hale Hana Hou.

VERY NICE HOUSE WITH A GREAT LITTLE BEACH NEARBY

  • 4 of 5
We were looking for something away from the resort areas north of Kona and this house was a good fit for that. Manini beach is just a couple of city blocks away and a very easy walk with the kayaks (on the wheeled cart). The beach is mostly rocky but there is a narrow entrance that is good for snorkeling and kayak entrance into the bay. There is a small park that is great for picnics near the water and to just enjoy the view and to get a taste of the friendly . We arranged for a guided tour to the Cook Monument on the other side of the bay with Kona Boys which I highly recommend. The 4-5 hour tour included 2.5 hours for snorkeling in a very nice area as well as lunch and snacks. The trip starts very near the house so we arranged all equipment and sign-up the day before and walked to the put-in spot which saved a trip up the hill.
The house was quite adequate for our party of 5 and the kitchen is well equipped although it might be a little small for some if the group was any larger. Even with the fans it can be a little warm in the bedrooms but by bed time it was always cool enough to sleep comfortably. There was a good supply of snorkeling gear if you don't have your own and 2 kayaks and 3 boogie boards that were good at some of the other nearby beaches. We enjoyed the large open living area and the feeling that we were in the treetops. The owner provided an extensive list of things to do which was very helpful. She also arranged for extra beach towels to be delivered during our stay which was very kind.
We would certainly recommend this house to others who want to get away from the crowds.

TRADITIONAL HAWAIIAN COMFORT

  • 4 of 5
Travelling with adult children requires accommodations that are spacious enough for differing needs. The house felt like a vacation home without being cramped. Beds were comfortable and two bathrooms essential. Surrounding by lush vegetation meant quiet nights and waking up to birdsong. Fully stocked kitchen and linens meant we could self-cater. Wi-fi and television meant we could check in with Olympics in progress. A short walk to the beach meant access to the water and sunset-viewing. If you don't want to be right in town, this is a great location (below Captain Cook). Also, there was a variety of materials available - snorkel equipment, a kayak, books, and puzzles. Melouise was helpful in providing information about hiking on the island and trips to Volcano. The house was well-maintained.

QUIET HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for the opportunity to stay in your lovely home. Your pictures represent well the uniquely decorated space. Lots of room for the whole family, in a great tree house just minutes to the ocean, park and beach. The snorkeling was A+, the dolphins even better, and the peace and quite of the village was best of all. A truly great place to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. If looking for some action, it's just minutes away.
Hope to visit again

Owner's Response: Thanks so very much for taking the time to submit your review Maggie. I appreciate your good words and am so glad the dolphins cooperated with you! They, Kealakekua Bay, Manini Beach and I will be waiting for your return visit. I'm glad your sons were able to join you for a few days and I'm sure the whole family had a memorable reunion. Warm aloha, Melouise

WONDERFUL WEEK

  • 5 of 5
The house was wonderful and Melouise was very helpful and accomodating all the way through from working with me on the reservation, to giving me driving directions when I'd forgotten to print them out, and then giving us an extra couple of hours to check out. The first thing we noticed was how extra clean the house was, and well stocked with EVERYTHING you could possibly need. You had the feeling you were almost in a tree house and it was very comfortable and relaxing. The only drawback may have been the noise from the road, which is much more travelled and closer than it seems and there were some barking dogs from time to time. We never did see dolphins in the bay but it may have been because the surf was pretty high the first few days. We had a great stay and truly enjoyed the week!

Owner's Response: Aloha Kathy.. Thank you for your nice comments and 5 star review! I'm so pleased you and your friends had a wonderful week at Hale Hana Hou and I will pass on your nice complement to Eva, my housekeeper. Yes, Napoopoo is a small, and mostly quiet village and I apologize for the occasional neighborhood noise. I hope next time the dolphins will be more accommodating! Melouise

WONDERFUL HOUSE, MAGICAL LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
Four of us (2 couples) rented Hale Hana Hou. It is the large second floor, that is at tree-level, that is rented. The listing was completely accurate in describing the well-kept house and property and the fabulous location.

The owner was very helpful throughout the process of renting and while we were there.

We loved the house! All the windows are screened. In fact, there is none other than the screened windows in the large living and dining room that separates one from the garden and lanai. The house is bright and sunny. The ceiling fans and cross breeze keep the temperature very comfortable. We felt that this house is much loved by the family who owns it. The artwork is lovely.

On waking, one of us would go down to the garden to gather the grapefruit, lemons and tangerines that had fallen during the night and to pick the ripe star fruit...then make fruit salad for breakfast.

We loved the community at Manini Beach and garden. The regulars were so welcoming and helpful. They even gave us fresh basil from the community garden!

We started our holiday with a fabulous brunch, at the Coffee Shack, which ended with the best 'lilikoi' cheese cake on Hawaii. We visited the Place of Refuge a couple of times. Nearby, we snorkelled at 2 Step. Every morning, we visited and snorkelled around Manini Beach. There is a beautiful Peace (also known as Galaxy) Garden on the Painted Church Rd that well worth a visit.

The owner has a very helpful binder full of information for visitors.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for the wonderful review Marianne! I'm so pleased all the fruit trees were cooperating for your breakfasts, and especially pleased that you had such a wonderful time there. You were right, and thank you for noticing, this house is well loved by our family. I hope to be able to welcome you back (hana hou) next year. Warm aloha, Melouise
