Overview

Milolii House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6

Hale Pali (Cliff House) is a spectacular (non-smoking) OCEANFRONT home overlooking the blue Pacific. We heartily agree with our guests who have enthusiastically stated: 'there is nothing that compares to actually being on the water' - what better way to enjoy the sound of the waves, and the smell of the sea air.

The home is beautifully and tastefully decorated and features teak furniture.

You will love cooking in the fully equipped, Rick Hartman designed, gourmet kitchen.

You can keep cool by taking a dip in our 3,000 gallon 'natural' (unheated) lava-pool or just 'chill' while lounging and sunning yourself on our small private white sand beach, you may also choose to kick back in the comfort of our shaded hammock.

If you need to stay connected you can do so via FREE WIFI.

A perfect day begins while sitting on the sea wall, sipping Kona Coffee, and looking out to sea. You will be amazed by the spectacular “blow-hole” that adds to the OCEANFRONT splendor of our seaside home.

If you are looking for 'off-the-beaten-path relaxation. We think that the serenity you will find here makes the 45 minute drive south from Kona Village very worthwhile.

They are both retired School Counselors following 30+ year careers, and are San Francisco State Alum who moved here from the Bay Area.

About Carl Ramsey

Carl and Deborah Ramsey have resided on the Big Island for more than 30 years. They are San Francisco State Alum and moved to the islands from the Bay Area. Carl and Deb are retired after many years of rewarding work counseling in the Hawaii Island public school system (who ever thought up the idea of retirement knew what they were doing!)

Their residence is an 8 1/2 acre farm just up the mountainside from the beach house. Although the crops are not extensive, Deborah does grow some Kona Coffee.

Meeting fascinating guests from all around the planet is the best part of owning and operating Hale Pali, they say. Please come and join them along the beautiful and peaceful south kona coast.

Carl Ramsey purchased this house in 2006

Gorgeous Kona Getaway with a Gourmet Kitchen

  • 5 of 5

You'll never want to leave this beautiful home in paradise. And for those lucky enough to stay at Hale Pali, you won't need to go anywhere. Carl and Deb have provided everything you'll need for a relaxing vacation by sea. Dramatic views outside, and all the creature comforts you wished you had in your own home inside. You don't feel like you're in a rental house, you feel at home. The gourmet kitchen is amazing and the entire house has all the modern amenities you'll ever need. A great getaway for families, honeymooners, or anyone wanting to experience the best of Kona's beauty. And did I mention there's whale watching? There are several beautiful sitting areas where you can gaze out over the ocean as these majestic mammals make their way up and down the coast. Thank you to the Ramsey's for all their hard work in making it a relaxing time for their guests.

One really important thing

  • 5 of 5

Okay, I read about 5 five-star reviews and I agree with them all.

I don't have much more to add, but the one thing that I especially pleased and surprised to find, which I can't overstate it's importance to a wine drinker - they have a wine fridge!!!

Okay, I'll add a few things more. Your owners are going to be helpful. Close by too, in case there is a problem, there wasn't though. We cooked every day we were there and the kitchen is great. The satellite tv was amazing, I don't have such a thing at home - to most it might be normal. Lots of options for sitting and eating. Which is nice.

I'm a runner and enjoyed the challenge of running up and down the hills in the village.

the local beach is nice for snorkeling and tooling around in. They even have a little spot that was perfect for our 2 year old to explore comfortably.

Like they say. Bring your food! The local store is ... okay, and 15 miles away.

The pictures don't do the place justice, EVEN though the pictures are great. A nice open house where you can open all the doors and get a breeze (when we were there we got some 30-50mph breezes!!).

This place was remarkable. Thanks Carl.

MORE THAN I COULD HAVE EVER ASKED FOR!

  • 5 of 5

Hale Pali is the best vacation rental we have ever stayed at! The entire home is so well appointed! They have everything that you need and then some!

Carl and Deb were fantastic hosts! Helpful at every turn!

The pictures truly do not do it justice. The home was clean and beautiful. Plus it was a little off the tourist beaten path! Just what we were looking for!

Be sure to check out Honomalino Bay when you stay at Hale Pali!

Mahalo, Carl and Deb! Our wedding was more picturesque than we could have imagined!

We had no idea just how perfect it would be.

  • 5 of 5

We looked at the pictures, were blown away and thrilled when we got the confirmation for the dates we requested. However we were not prepared for the sheer beauty of Hale Pali, better yet that we would be able to enjoy this for 2 weeks. The pictures are close but don't do it justice. The best part was not feeling pressure to go anywhere, we could enjoy the island by looking out the patio doors. We had so many perfect sunsets, we saw dolphins & whales. We visited many beautiful sights around the island but were always glad to come home to Hale Pali. Carl & Debbie made us feel comfortable and welcome. Who could ask for more, certainly not us.

Hali Pali is a slice of heaven....remote enough to feel away from it all but not a bad drive north or south to wherever your day may take you..great nearby beaches, but the best part of every day way waking to the expansive Pacific and the wonderful breeze. If you are looking for bars , nightlife and attractions in walking distance look elsewhere, but if you want a truly relaxing vacation come to Hali Pali....the Big Island is what the rest of the islands used to be 20 years ago..you can still get away from the crowds and enjoy the true feel of old Hawaii..thanks Carl and Deb for sharing!
