Beautiful Mango wood floors, custom made furnishings from Bali and exceptional art combine to create an experience that is truly unique in the world of vacation rentals. The residence is nestled into a private botanical garden with extensive palm, bamboo, orchid and bromeliad collections, all staged within the context of manicured sweeping lawns and ocean vistas.
Property managers are onsite, comfortably situated away from the main residence to ensure your utmost privacy.
Fresh tropical floral arrangements, all gathered from our exquisite garden, will greet you throughout the entire house. Beautiful linens, comfortable beds and a complete gourmet equipped kitchen await your arrival.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hale Mohalu situated within a truly tropical heaven. Property manager, Mike greeted us upon our arrival and gave us a tour of the lovely house. He also introduced us to Mango, the sweet house cat, who made us feel right a home since we have 2 of our own. The house was very comfortable for our group of 4 adults. The stars at night were miraculous. The first evening the 4 of us sat out on the deck to enjoy the show. Staying in a home that was "off the grid" caused us to appreciate things we often take for granted such as water and electricity. We also loved the art work displayed throughout the house. Mahalo for our relaxing stay.
Hale Mohalu is a small piece of paradise in the special place that is the big island. The home and surround is more beutiful than we could have imagine when we booked. We have travelled all over the islands and this was the most amazing place we have stayed. What Davis has imagined and Mike has created/maintained is breathtaking. Thank you both. A special thanks to Mango and Lotus for their prescence.
The property is even more beautiful than the photos! Surrounded by breathtaking beauty and QUIET, this was the perfect truly relaxing getaway. Mike, the property manager, was so great and helpful. We were really impressed with the way the property was handled in a way in which held so much respect for the environment and indigenous habitat - such a responsible and respectful way to live.
If you want to be close to a Walmart and lots of Hawaii keychains, and tourist-driven restaurants, this isn't the place for you. If you want to enjoy the lush, amazing beauty of the island and immerse yourself in it without lines and tour buses, this is absolutely the place for you. Close to amazing snorkeling, and lots of local life in nearby Pahoa. Get some groceries and fresh fish in Pahoa and enjoy the fabulous view from the patio!
Mike, thank you so much for everything - we hope to be back!
Hale Mohalu surpasses... more than House of Rest and Relaxation... idyllic Bali-influenced gardens and structures... truly a tropics paradise... can't imagine a better spot to call home on the Big Island... "off-the-grid" done right... well-tended and ripe for enjoying. Constellations are eye-popping on the lanai... and greet the sun in nearby volcanic hot pools. Mike and his staff are friendly and super helpful... a real gem on the Puna coast... more please... can't wait to book our return! Mahalo Mohalu
Thank you Mike and Mango. Our stay was perfect but too short. We had it all - immersed in floral beauty ,sun, rain, walks,or drives to lava lagoons, community markets with lilting Hawaiian music, geothermal pools, funky towns and volcano craters. I just wanted to stay on the lanai and worship the green. Next time.
Spent a wonderful week here with my daughters. The lanscaping is stunningly well done and the house perfectly arranged. As an "off-the-grid" house, everything was quite comfortable. Big Mike kindly shared some fresh picked lychee and we picked some local bananas as well. We cooked or barbequed each night and found the kitchen well stocked with most basics. Whatever was missing we picked up at the nearby grocery (as well as some movies). Several adventures out to the tidepools (you gotta go!) and wander the roads to see scenery and beaches. Very peaceful, private, and relaxing. On our last nite, the sky cleared and we enjoyed a fire out under the stars. THis is a beautiful place to stay and I hope to return in the future.
