Milolii House Rental Photos and Description

One-Bedroom Cozy Cottage On The Ocean, With Private Pool.

Discover how to REALLY relax!

Would you like to relax in your own peaceful private pool, while contemplating the vast expanse of the ocean right in front of you - amazing whales, spinner dolphins and colorful fish, the sunsets, and complete serenity, for less than the price of a resort hotel room? Then you will love our place.

Our home has one bedroom, 1.5 baths, plus an outdoor shower/toilet. Kitchen and living area are open and roomy. Bedroom and living room glass french doors open to the ocean view and breeze. Wrap-around lanai and small in-ground pool.

Get-away-from-it all seclusion but only 25 minutes to the nearest grocery store and beaches.

We just purchased this house from our friend Rick, and it has never been used as a vacation rental- just a second home. We have always loved the house and the magical coast of Milolii. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Hawaii License number is W26310508-01

Suitability:
  • Minimum Age Limit for Renters

About Melanie and Dan Lewis

We currently live in the small town of Angels Camp in California's famed Gold Country. Angels Camp is home of the famous Calaveras County Jumping Frog Jubilee. We own a fishing store on New Melones Reservoir called Glory Hole Sports (www.gloryholesports.com), after the Glory Hole Gold Mine that once operated here, and is now under the lake. We love to fish, and spend lots of time on New Melones Lake. When we are in Hawaii, we love to fish off the cliff right in front of the house.

Angels Camp is a small town, and we love it. The Big Island has that same small-town feel. Everyone is so friendly, and there is no hustle and bustle.

We have been married 30+ years, and have a beautiful grown daughter, Sarah. We have always loved Hawaii, and take several trips a year there. We have made amazing friends there over the years. We hope to be able to move to Hawaii someday.

Melanie and Dan Lewis purchased this house in 2014

Why Melanie and Dan Lewis chose Milolii

Why is the house called Rick’s Place? We bought the house from our good friend from Maui, Rick, who built it. For years, we would visit Milolii with him. Rick is an ultra-cool, amazingly artistic guy, and the house shows his artistic flair and creativity.

We have always loved Rick’s Place, Milolii and all the wonderful people we have met there. We are thankful to Rick, who agreed to sell us our favorite place on earth, and our friends in Hawaii, who have helped us to make this dream come true.

We hope you enjoy and cherish your time here as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

The first time we visited Milolii, we wondered where we were going, as we drove down the long road across the lava flow. But once we were sitting on the deck, overlooking the blue ocean and watching the humpbacks against the background of a red sunset, we understood the magic of the place. We helped Rick install the pool several years later, and that really made the house perfect.

Great Eacape

  • 5 of 5
Rick's place is the most relaxing slice of heaven we have escaped to. The iBig iIsland is very different from the others but for the adventurous tracker wanted to hike to beaches, climb lava or swim with turtles. Ricks place is within an miles of the most beautiful black sand beach, a short drive to the green sans beach, volcano and along the way the best help your self fruit stands. The house is very private and resort like so you really don't need to go anywhere if you choose. The locals are friendly, the dogs are happy and the birds songs in the morning and the waves lovely. We recommend Rick's place for a real island living experience not a resort. It's perfection.

Very Quiet

  • 5 of 5
Dan and Melanie are great hosts. There house is incredibly stocked with anything you can imagine you would need. We really enjoyed snorkeling all over the island. But my favorite spot was just down the street from the house at Milolii beach park. The only downside we had during our week stay was the mosquitos. But nothing a little bug spray can't fix.

Its in a very quiet neighborhood/town, The Drive south is about an hour 20 from Kona airport. The grocery store is about a 30 min drive from the house so plan to pick stuff up on the way to the house. But the peacefulness this house has is well worth the drive.

Can't wait to come back and visit

Owner's Response: The Mosquitos can be pesky little buggas at certain times of the year, especially if there is not breeze. That's why we provide plenty of insect repellant for you. Part of the big Island experience- geckos need to eat too! Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Relax at your own pace

  • 5 of 5
We had a girls week and couldn't have asked for anything more. The house was well equipped with anything we might need from kitchen implements to condiments. Most of our time was spent out on the deck enjoying the ocean view; either at the table or in the pool. We watched the peaceful sunset every night. The outdoor shower with the tiki torches was fun, especially after being in the ocean. Miloli'i is off the beaten path and reminds me of my first time to Kailua-Kona in '77. No need to rush anywhere or even to lock the doors. We drove to Volcano National Park one day and to the Kohala coast another. Melanie and Dan were very helpful with our questions, as this was a new area for us on the island. I hope to visit again soon and listen to the ocean.

Awesome stay!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Rick's Place for our honeymoon in late June-early July. The house was great - a delightful, peace, BEAUTIFUL, tranquil spot to base our trip from. It was great to listen to the ocean all day, have full amenities of a home, and access to amazing snorkeling just down the road. If you are looking for somewhere off the beaten path and without the feel of a tourist trap - this is the place for you! The owners were great, and ensured we had everything we needed. THANK YOU!

awesome place, big hill

  • 4 of 5
The house is awesome. We especially liked the outdoor shower and the beautiful lanai overlooking the ocean. It was stocked with all kitchen supplies that we needed and towels and even snorkeling gear! However, the only downside is the hill going down into milollii. It is very long, winding, and steep. We recommend this place.

Love this place

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I celebrated our honeymoon here and absolutely LOVED it! It far exceeded our expectations. Beautiful view, great kitchen, amazing view and so quiet. The owners are so nice and very helpful. It is somewhat remote which worked for us. If you're looking to stay away from the tourists, this is your place!

Mamalahoa Hwy
Car: necessary

The town of Ocean View is about 25 minutes south on Mamalahoa Hwy (11). There are grocery and hardware stores and shops and restaurants in the area. Continue driving and you will reach Volcanoes National Park, and South Point. Continue around the point and you will eventually get to Hilo. If instead of going south, you go north on Mamalahoa Hwy (11), you will be headed back to Kailua-Kona, where there airport is. On the way, you will pass Captain Cook (about 30 minutes from the house). There is a grocery store there as well as some great coffee houses and restaurants. There are lots of great restaurants, bars and nightlife, resorts and souvenir shopping opportunities in Kailua Kona . It's about an hour and a half drive to Kailua-Kona, depending on traffic. Continuing on the Highway will bring you past the resorts on the Kohala Coast, around Upolu Point to the quaint town of Hawi, and through the Parker Ranch. Eventually you will be back in Hilo. But don't try to circumnavigate the island in one day. It's big, and there is too much to see and do along the way!
