Guestbook comments from the manager
Although we "booked" this property about 7 months in advance of our visit, the owner rented it to someone else and we were forced to scramble for another property. Even though we followed all their instructions regarding payment, they simply returned our check and said, "sorry". This owner is not to be trusted.

Aloha! We are Michael & Candi . We caretakers of Maka Nui on which Pali Hale is located . We have lived on this property since 1993. Being Big Island residents for over 22 years this is now home forever. The new owners have enlisted our help to make this a peaceful retreat from their busy life in the mainland. To that end we are always trying!

We love meeting new guests & giving clues as to the best way to enjoy the island while here. There have been many return's , so must be doing something right!

So we hope to hear from all of you & treat you to our slice of paradise.

Mahalo Candi & Michael

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

The property is on a cliff over looking Kealakeakua Bay , which is a marine preserve & offers wonderful kayaking -snokeling. The quiet rural area is perfect for enjoying the birds & smells of Hawaii . But is a short 15-20 minute drive to Kailua town for night life.

Maka Nui means eye veiw which is obvious when you enter the gated property.

First is the coast line veiw, then the fresh fruits & flowers which are yours for the picking.The security of your own resort type setting.There are 2 mascots ( dogs)named Happy & Bamboo which love to meet you also. We also 5 cats and we are their staff! The peace & quiet is a plus for all.

RELAXING GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
When we arrived "home", we had a wonderful basket of goodies and the basics to get us through the night. Candi and Michael provided us with all of the information we needed and helped to make our vacation perfect. Great caretakers. It was the quiet getaway with a wonderful view. We look forward to going back.

SIMPLY THE BEST!

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful place this is! Like everyone looking for the perfect Hawaiian locale we scrutinized many offerings and clicked through even more photos. Luck was on our side when we discovered Pali Hale! Wow! The views are incredible! 1200 ft above the coastline makes for spectacular and ever-changing scenery as the view changes with sun, fog, clouds, storms and sunsets.

The hospitality is second to none from the moment you are welcomed by a wonderful Aloha Basket, 2 sweet dogs and hosts extraordinaire, Candi and Michael! Candi and Michael are happy to offer tips and recommendations on beaches, restaurants and all the best sights and activities on the Island.

The cottage is perfect for two with all the comforts of home. We enjoyed our 5 night stay and regretted that it was not longer; we hope to return.

Just to let you know, Candi, we discovered a stowaway on the way to the airport. One of the gekkos decided to hop a ride. We pulled over and let him out of the car so I hope he's back on the lanai relaxing!

Mahalo nui loa!

Aloha Candi & Michael;
Just wanted to share a review with future guests, because my stay at the cottage far exceded my expectations. You both were such wonderful hosts, and I so enjoyed the visists from the dogs, made me not miss mine so much. The cottage was so quaint and clean, and felt like a home away from home to me. I still think about the beautiful views from the front lanai, and it takes me back, if only for a moment. The location was excellent, and close enough to town and sights, but far enough away for a little solitude.
I look forward to staying again with you soon!

GLAMPING ON THE BIG ISLAND!

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time staying at the cottage on the Maka Nui Estate! I put "Glamping" in the title because that's what it was like…Camping with luxury. The cottage had everything we needed and felt absolutely safe and comfortable. No need to lock the doors or even shut them, just close the screen and let the sea breezes and the sound of the ocean drift through. The way the cottage is situated you can't see the main estate or the caretakers home just the magnificent view! … Except for that avocado tree Candi! Ha!

Our favorite spot was to sit in the Adirondack Chairs in the morning enjoying the wonderful coffee grown right on the property. We bought several bags of it for souvenirs to take home to family and friends.

The caretakers Candi and Michael are fantastic and are always available to give you great advice about where to go on the whole island for the best adventures! They were a blast to chat with!

The location was great if you want to get away from all the tourist chaos in Kona, but it its close enough to get right in the middle of it all within 15 – 20 minutes.

We had a great time on Hawaii! Some things not to miss are the Volcano National Park at Sunset (you can see the glow of Kilaeua from the Jaggar Museum), Green Sands on South Point (Ka Lea), Waipio’ Valley with it’s black sand beach, Waimea (beautiful alpine town on the way to Wapio’), Kealakehe Bay (best snorkeling anywhere!), Mauna Kea (Sunset at 13850’! Awesome!), a snorkeling cruise on the Hula Kai, and of course, I can’t forget “Quinn’s almost by the Sea” (the Kona Packer Bar flying the big green G!).

We were 4000 miles away and felt right at home. We’ll be back, but with reinforcements to fill up the big house! Great time!

Mahalo!

7 DAYS IN PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
As first time visitors to the Hawaiian Islands, Big Island was the second stop on our journey. After reviewing all the suitable VRBO listings for a couple, we kept coming back to this site in the Captain Cook area and were extremely happy that we did. Maka Nui Cottage and the 5 acre property offered us a great deal, open space on the mountain slope with a beautiful view of the Kealakekua Bay (snorkelled here), a panoramic view of the west coast shoreline and ideal location to tour the entire island. There were many fruit, coffee and Mac trees which not only were supplied in our Welcome Gift Basket but the coffee and Mac nuts are available for purchase. We waited until our return home to enjoy the Mac nuts we bought from Candi and are very sorry we did. They were fantastic, we should have bought more....!

Candi and Michael were excellent hosts providing us many hours of seclusion but available when asked to provide info on a snorkel tour (FairWind AM tour was excellent), dining for lunch & dinner (Sam Choy's was a great suggestion..thank you), visiting the Punalu'u Bake Shop in Na'alehu on our way to Volcano Park and travelling from Hilo to Kona across the island. The new highway thru the mountains and above the clouds saved us lots of time.

Our week on the island wasn't long enough but Thanks to Candi and Michael, we will certainly return for a longer stay. Keep up the good work, you both are excellent ambassadors for this VRBO listing and the island. Future visitors of this heavenly property will not be disappointed.

Aloha & Mahalo from Vange & Bill - Springfield, Manitoba, Canada

GOOD TIMES AT GUEST COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent 3 weeks at cottage for our 25th, it was great. The property was very clean and well maintained, fresh fruit for the picking, as soon as we got there we felt at home. Every thing that they said was there, was, and in good working order. Candi and Michael were very helpful, anytime we had questions they were able to help us out, and the restaurants they recommend were all 5 star. The coffee that they grow and have roasted is the best, there was samples to try when we got there. This property is very private and quiet, centrally located on the Kona Coast and easy driving to all attractions. Candi and Michael really made this trip the best for us. Will be going back next year. We would highly recommend this cottage
