About Benjamin Dunn

I am a Realtor licensed in both California and Hawaii with over 35 years experience in real estate sales. My family helps maintain this property with great pride and attention to detail in part because it is sometimes a second home for us. My current sports related interests include beach volleyball, bike riding, and swimming. An interest in the history of Hawaii and Asia has led me to keep a modest library of books on these topics at the house. I am both a Vietnam Veteran and a graduate of the University of California Santa Cruz.

Benjamin Dunn purchased this house in 2001

Why Benjamin Dunn chose Kailua Kona

After visiting the Big Island since 1988 my family and I decided to use a rental property we owned in Santa Cruz, Ca. in an IRC 1031 exchange. Our friends in Hawaii helped us evaluate locations and this home with it's proximity to Keauhou Bay, Magic Sands Beach Park, and Kahalu'u State Beach has proved to be a perfect location for us and guests. Our central location allows trips to Keauhou Bay, Volcano National Park, Hapuna State Park, and Paniolo country.

What makes this house unique

Music and dance presentations at the Keauhou Shopping Center are free and of high quality. Also the shopping center has a multi-plex theater and good restaurants. We can easily walk to Magic Sands Beach and Kahalu'u Beach State Parks. Our two car garage allows for storage of a modest amount of sports gear and we are only 3 miles from the Kona Country Club golf course. Our residential neighborhood has allowed us to get to know Hawaii residents and to become friends.

a perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5
Our group of ten family members, ranging from ages one to seventy-five, recently spent ten wonderful days at Hale Malehini. We arrived to find a spotless house that was exactly as represented in the listing. We were in a quiet family-type neighborhood so the house rules included pool hours etc. that took the neighbors into consideration- but but would not be appropriate for a rowdier "party" group. The fact that the property is two separate units worked out well for our group and made it easy for little ones to be napping in one part while other activities were going on. The lovely pool ended up being one of the main highlights, and there was a very pleasant beach just five minutes walk from the house. Since we had ten days, we did spend two of them driving to the other side of the island, but we found everything we needed and wanted- good groceries, great restaurants, shopping and lovely beaches within just a few miles of the house. The property owners were very gracious and responded quickly to any questions we had. We would happily stay there again and recommend it to others.

Hale Malihini - The perfect family vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5
Our recent visit to Kona was great at Hale Malihini! The owner was very helpful answering any questions before, during and after our vacation.
This home was the perfect place for the 9 of us ranging from 10yrs old to over 70. It was well equipped for all our sleeping, bathing, cooking and beach needs. Everything is clean, updated and well maintained. Instructions are clear and well posted.
The home has beach towels and body boards for use and magic sands beach is just a short walk away. The pool at the home is clean and evening barbecues poolside are the perfect way to wind down after a fun filled day.
The homes location is excellent. Close to beaches and downtown Kona, yet perfectly nestled in a quiet neighborhood.
Wake up to the sound of birds, a fresh cup of Kona coffee, go on excursions all day, and return to grill your freshly caught fish in the evening. Now THAT is a vacation!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time in this home! We were two families of four and had plenty of space. It is a bit awkward to get from the top to the bottom floor (there are two self contained units) but once we got used to it, it didn't bother us at all! This home is certainly lovingly maintained by the owners.
It was so nice to have such a well equipped kitchen and to have beach chairs, umbrellas, towels, etc all available for our use.
Everything was very clean and well maintained. At the time the BarBQ was not working perfectly but the property managers were aware and were trying to fix the problem.
The location is perfect, close enough to easily walk to two beaches - one great for snorkelling and another great for boogie boarding. The sunset right outside the dining room window every night and it was spectacular!
While booking this property, the owner Ben always answered my emails or phone calls very promptly and did everything he could to make our stay enjoyable. He was a real pleasure to work with and I wish I could have met him in person!
We highly recommend this home!

Amazing house. Perfect location to get out and about on the isalnd.

  • 5 of 5
I rented both the top and bottom part of the house for my 2 family vacation to the Big Island. This is a great layout for the 9 of us. It is located on a quiet cul de sac, with no traffic. Just the sounds of the birds. The teens enjoyed the 5 min walk to the White Sands Beech Park and I was able to get some beautiful sunset photos there also. It is only 5 min drive from the beech shops and restaurants of Kona, and just 5 min drive in the other direction to a nice grocery store. The home owner has equipped the home with anything you might need. High speed wifi, large refrigerator, all kitchen needs. I really can't say enough about how pleased we were with this rental.

Amazing family reunion!

  • 5 of 5
Our large family group of 13 spent 10 days at this delightful property. It is located on a quiet side street and just a very short walk to a small beach....which was also a terrific place to watch the sun set! We enjoyed waking up to the sounds of the birds and the surf and there was always a gentle breeze. The house was very well equipped with all the amenities you could possibly need....including sand chairs and boogie boards! The pool and pool deck guaranteed we didn't stay inside much. This is a perfect 'home base' from which to have your Hawaiian adventure. A big thank you to the owner for sharing this lovely home and for being so accommodating and easy to work with.

A wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful home! We spent the week of Thanksgiving in Hale Malihini with three generations of family (10 of us) and this home was lovely and had more than enough space for us all. First of all, great location — a very short walk to White Sands Beach and a mile down the road is a great snorkeling spot where sea turtles come to feed daily (make sure to get some shaved ice with Li Hing Mui on it). If you're feeling adventurous, you can do a night swim with some manta rays near Keahou harbor about a 5-10 minute drive south.

The home is in a quiet neighborhood with a mix of some other rentals and local residents. The home is a couple miles south of Kona proper, which adds to the "local" feel but is only about 1.5 miles north of a shopping center with a supermarket, pizza place, etc. The top floor has a view of the ocean and the property and pool were in excellent condition. Ben has done a great job of keeping the house stocked — there were plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, and other beachy-type stuff. Ben was very responsive to any questions we had throughout the rental process.

The only thing to point out is that this home is actually two separate units (this is spelled out in the rental description) and to get from the top unit to the bottom, you need to go outside and down some stairs. This was not a problem for us because it added some space and privacy to the stay; however, if you are looking for a large combined home, take note that this one is two units.

We would definitely stay here again and I would recommend this to any large group planning a trip to Kona!
