About Linda and Max Shetler

Building our home in Milolii, Hawaii has been a dream come true. Hawaii has been our favorite vacation getaway for years, and we decided that we would like to spend more time in the place we love. Being from the country in our home state of Washington, made the rural setting of Milolii a perfect fit for us. We enjoyed the research, the planning and the hard work of completing our home. Now it is the relaxing 'home away from home' that we had hoped for. We wish our guests that same feeling of contentment that makes us come back again and again.

We will be back!!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Max & Linda for letting us borrow your beautiful home for a week!! It is soooooooo peaceful there and loved every minute there. It had everything we needed for an "Awsome" vacation! Didn't get to use the kayaks, maybe next time. Your lot is in a perfect location (we're jealous :-) that provides that great view from the up stairs deck, and a nice private pool area in the back! That upstairs deck was the perfect place for our breakfasts, dinners and just kickin back time. We had beautiful sunsets every day that we were there! We even got to see that Blood Moon Eclipse one evening,that was really cool! (I am kinda an astronomy nut too :-) Sky viewing there was great, haven't been in an area that dark for years!!)
Your directions to the house were perfect and thank you also for the maps with all the highlighted places on it ,I think we went to all of them! :-) Milolii was just what we were hoping for. It's away from the hustle n bustle of city life and very relaxing. We live about 10 miles from the Las Vegas strip so we loved it here.
The new Saddle Road is awsome it saved us so much time on a road trip one day we did in about 8 hours! (Naalehu,Punaluu,South Point,Volcano,Hilo,Kamuela,Kohala and ended up at Hapuna Beach-Awsome day!! Only skipped the Hamakua Coast area) We did go back to Volcano on another day tho,very cool there. Your home I think is in pretty nice starting place to explore the Big Island well for us it was. Made it to Hilo in a couple of hours to visit friends and family ,and thats just cruzin all the way. We made it to Honomolino Beach also and it took us about 30 minutes from the start of the trail (we're 60 so it took us longer LOL) it's Awsome there and we had it all to ourselves for about 3 hours!!! I told Debbie I was ready to run around naked!1 LOL!! Beautiful beach and water there! The people we talked to in the Milolii Village are very nice too! You just have to start talking to them.
Well thanks again Linda & Max our vacation was great!! We're coming up again in June but saw your place was rented out already :-( Kinda was a last minute decision anyway. Take Care -n- Aloooooooooha!

Party on the linie

  • 5 of 5
Great hideaway for 10 days of whales singing Daphnis spinning and sunsets a flowing . Not close to anything but that's what we wanted. Star gazing was incredible with space station passing over head on a few nights. The house is well equipped with ample cook wear. Caution frig has alarm for door open and we spent time monkeying with smokes to figure this out. Linda and max have put a nice place together.

Lovely lanai retreat

  • 5 of 5
We couldn't have asked for kinder, more considerate hosts than Linda and Max. Our housekeeper/property manager, Danielle, was wonderful, too. Sound of the Whale is a labor of love from these wonderful people, and it truly shows. The home is thoughtfully designed and lovingly maintained. We enjoyed the pool, birds and flowers. The ocean breezes were always welcome. This home has comfortable furnishings, plenty of kitchen utensils and crockery in addition to comfortable beds and quality linens. Of course, the lanaii is a wonder, and I already miss the unique lounge chair. We really felt more like visiting cousins than tourists while staying here. I wish that all visitors here have the wonderful experience we did. Thank you again, Max, Linda and Danielle, for making our stay so comfortable and for sharing your friendship with us.

Best VRBO We Have Ever Stayed In!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautifully crafted home with an awesome view. It is off the beaten path in a very peaceful setting. The house was super clean and well equipped, even better than the listing describes. We especially enjoyed hiking to secluded Honomalino Beach for snorkeling and swimming. We definitely want to return for a longer stay!
