Overview

Milolii House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6. 2 Kings main level, 1 king lower level.

On the Big Island of Hawaii, we are located at sea level in the last fishing village of quiet, rural Milolii on an ancient lava flow, with lava coastline.

Located 33 miles south from Kailua-Kona, we are just a short 63 miles to Volcano National Park.

We are equi-distant between many popular tourist sites located on the Kona Coast side of the Big Island, i.e. Kealakekua Bay, Place of Refuge, Kahalu'u Black Sands Beach Park, Honomolino Bay, Punalu'u Black Sands Beach Park, Volcano National Park, to name a few.

OCEANFRONT Hale Romantik' on the Big Island of Hawaii, South Kona Coast is located just 40 feet from the ocean. Feel the beauty, sound and excitement the Blue Pacific brings to you.

You will not have to look for the whales. You will hear them! And then look! There are also Spinner Dolphins, Green Sea Turtles and occasionally Manta Rays all year long. The waters in this location are considered some of the best KAYAKING and fishing grounds in Hawaii. Snorkeling equipment and Kayaks are also available for your use, on the property.

This oceanfront home has open beam ceilings throughout the house, adding to the sense of space; great for air circulation and a true feeling of Polynesian design with the exotic beams and designer palm fans dramatically displayed above. Italian porcelain tile throughout; simply a pleasure for your stay.

The home has all amenities, including a 500 sq. ft. lanai. Large expanses of windows and sliding doors, connect the home to its ocean views, allowing you to view the ocean from nearly every room, even from each bedroom, which has a Swedish TempurPedic mattress and a Pillow-top style mattress . Every night you will watch the sun set below the horizon.

This brand-new oceanfront home is simply immaculate and fully equipped. Has all what you need. We cater to the particular!

Upper level of main house, has two deluxe bedrooms, with their own ensuite is very convenient. Two separate deluxe bathrooms with double vanities, with extra large porcelain sinks, and two separate walk-in tile and glass block showers is another highlight. There is a separate entrance ground level, to a bedroom/den, with a king sized mattress, and access to a bathroom facility including a shower. This floor plan allows privacy for couples, singles, and extended family in the main level of the house, as well as the ground level of the house.

Milolii is known throughout the islands for its deep sea fishing, and clear waters. The 'last fishing village' in Hawaii is just a 10 minute drive within the Milolii Beach Lots subdivision, where a trail leading to a coconut tree lined black sand beach (Honomalino), offers fantastic snorkeling.

The village has a County boat ramp and camp grounds, and offers easy access for kayaking and deep sea fishing.

Milolii offers some of the most underdeveloped stretches of coastline on the Big Island, with secret beaches to explore.

Seasonal whale watching and Spinner Dolphins. As many as 10,000 Humpback Whales visit athe Hawaiian waters annually from November through May. These endangered mammals enjoy the state's warm waters in the winter to breed, give birth and nurse their young.

Spectacular sunsets can be viewed directly from the oceanfront house. Have your camera ready! Milolii......'where the sun meets the sea', and everyone says hello!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Repeat Guests from Wisconsin, sent this very complimentary e-mail. Thought we should share it with you.



"We certainly enjoyed our stay at the oceanfront house. The surf breaking against the lava is addictive; just when you think the ocean has calmed down another series of waves arrives. We saw quite a few whales passing by, some closer to the lava wall than we expected and at various times of the day and evening.



Milolii is a good location for day trips to Hilo and to the Volcanoes National Park. We went three times and yesterday we shopped at the Kau Coffee Mill at Pahala on our way to Hilo. I would highly recommend that stop to anyone that is looking for the 'secret' coffee flavor which we are all hoping for.



Sunday morning we will probably be leaving before 10:00 am. If we can return to this island again in two years we will contact you in advance."



Thanks again for your hospitality.

Honeymoon of a lifetime!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 11 nights and we couldn't be more pleased with our choice to stay here. We contacted the owner through VRBO and were promptly replied to. Elaine was such a pleasure to work with. Quick replies, great communication, and great instructions to get to the house.

This house has everything you need for a perfect Hawaiian vacation. Kayaks, fishing gear, snorkeling gear, and AMAZING VIEW. You can fish right off the lava rocks in the pics. The pics in this add are 100% accurate. You are right on the rocks overlooking the ocean. Hearing the waves as we fell asleep and when we woke up was wonderful. If you want to stay in a quiet, beautiful, peaceful community, this is the place for you. It's away from the hustle bustle of the city.

Easy access to towns, quaint shopping both to the north or south. Within and hour or so drive to so many destinations. Volcano national park, etc. It's impossible to describe the beauty of the sunsets in the evening we saw from the lanai. Make sure you stop at the many road side fruit stands.

From the lanai, we saw fish jumping and spouting whales as well.

The beds are So Comfortable. Couple that with the sound of the ocean at night, and a great night's sleep is the norm.

I recommend studying the history of the area which will add to the beauty and intrigue of the area.

You will definitely need to rent a car. I recommend a 4 wheel drive (not necessary to get to the house), based on where you decide to visit on the island.

We can't say enough about how wonderful our stay was. This made for the honeymoon of a lifetime.

Thank you Elaine. We truly appreciate you and this beautiful property.

This house was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful house for five days and it was great! It is huge and has everything you could need. There are kayaks and other water toys (we did not use them, but they are there) and the ocean is right at the edge of the property. It is not a beach, but a rocky cliff (about 20 or 30 feet down). At night the waves pound the cliff and you not only hear the waves and smell the sea air, but you feel the slight vibrations of the waves hitting the lava that the house is sitting on. It was so soothing to sleep with the sounds of the ocean lulling us to sleep at night. This is not a resort that pampers tourists, but a real neighborhood. This is a fishing village and you will see the fishermen going out every day in their boats. One night on our way to the house, there were two guys fire dancing on the road. It was very cool to see them doing it for their own enjoyment and not to entertain anyone else (although we were entertained). You need to make sure that you have everything before you are in for the night, because it is kind of rural and stores are not open very late (10 pm I think). The house is huge and well stocked. All the items you need to make a very nice temporary home. Beds are super comfortable and the bathrooms and large and nice. We did not use the downstairs bedroom or bathroom, but they seemed fine for an extra. The washer and dryer were adequate for our needs and cost $2 per wash and dry. They are large, so we only had to do a few loads. Water is on a catchment system, which was fine with us, but you probably want to make sure you bring bottled water to drink. So in short, this place is amazing if you want a very peaceful authentic Hawaiian experience.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed from 11/23 thru 12/7. It was everything that was advertised and more. The owners were wonderful to work with and the home was absolutely perfect with a breathtaking view. Every day we would see a different shark (one morning a hammerhead), whales, dolphins and hundreds of fish swimming by. We will definitely be staying here again as we now consider it “our home” on the big island. Thank you Ole and Elaine for sharing your home with us! ~Carole and Ralph Bullman, Juneau, Alaska

WONDERFUL

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here with our kids for 5 nights. The view is beautiful! We got really lucky and had perfect weather the whole time. From what I know it doesn't rain much in Milolii anyway. Took the kayaks down to the dock and did some kayak fishing. We were also to catch a few fish fight off the rocks in front of the house. The house has everything you'll need to be comfortable. It was very easy communicating with the owner, and we got our deposit back quickly. I would love to bring my family here again.

View, View, View

  • 5 of 5

If you like unobstructed view and constant sound of the surf, then this is the place to stay. Everything listed about the place is accurate. You are away from everything, so plan accordingly. Well worth the drive for the privacy & view if you are the type that just wants to get away from all the hustle and bustle.

Beautiful Home, Secluded Location

  • 4 of 5

We spent 3 weeks at Hale Romantik over Christmas and New Years 2012-2013. The home is very nice and comfortable too! We loved the sliding doors from the bedrooms which allow even better ocean views! The Lanai was amazing and the location on the Lava Cliffs was spectacular when the waves were raging and even when the seas were calm. We heard the whales at night and as we were leaving, they started to appear during the day too. We totally agree with other reviews that Milolii is a secluded, out of the way location. Don’t plan on coming here to have immediate access to the tourist spots. But we loved the fact that Milolii is located between Kona and Hilo. Each day we could decide which direction we wanted to explore. The landscape of this area is Lava, which is different from what we are used to, we grew to like it. The one caution we would have is because of the Lava landscape and the steep cliffs, having kids here would require attentive parents.. I worried about my husband who would go out and walk to the edge of the cliff….. The Owners were good hosts, they work very hard to keep the properties nice and to ensure that their visitors have everything they need. Our plan for this trip was to totally “escape” from everything (and everyone) for three glorious weeks! This is why we specifically chose the seclusion offered by the Milolii location. We have rented many times from vrbo.com and this is the first home we have stayed in where the owners lived close-by and were active in the management of their rentals. Our feeling is that this hindered our plan of escaping from it all as the Owners were so attentive that they dropped in quite often. We never were sure when we might have guests knocking at the door. The Washer & Dryer are coin operated - we were always trying to find quarters as we would forget to get some while in town. So bring lots of quarters with you! All in all – we had a wonderful time in Milolii and at Hale Romantik. It is a nice location to escape the normal tourist type vacation and experience really living on the island.
