The property is not ocean front but you can hear the wave’s as they crash against the shoreline when the surf is up.
Nearby are the ocean cliffs (5 minute stroll) where you can enjoy all types of sea life especially during the winter months. You can see humpback whales breaching at the ocean front park located just a short walk way where you can have a nice picnic and enjoy the beauty of this tropical paradise.

Aloha thank you for visiting out vacation rental listing. My name is Laurie and the love of my life's name is Denny and we have been married for 20 years July 2014 but have been best friends for over 30 years! Denny was born on Oahu (not to give his age) back when it was still the “Territory of Hawaii”. Denny won a trip to the island of Kauai in 1992, which at that time we were only dating and he asked if I would accompany him. It was my first airplane ride all the way from Minnesota direct flight to the islands. Denny had not been back to his birth place since he left when he was very young and I had never been here. Oh my gosh from the moment we landed we both knew in our hearts this is where we wanted to spend our lives as much as we possibly could. We visited many of the islands throughout the years whenever financially we were able to. We loved them all but the island of Hawaii was our only pick of where we wanted to go to as we felt more at home here than anywhere else.
Denny & Laurie Edmonds purchased this house in 2013
Centrally located within an hour drive to ALL of Puna’s special tourist sites, a short walk to the ocean, semi-secluded location in an upscale neighborhood and most importantly she was created for our guests and we hope to spoil our guests and make your vacation a truly memorable one!
Makana-lani was very clean, comfortable, roomy and welcoming. Our party consisted of two senior couples. Each couple had their own master bedroom on separate floors, so had privacy when desired. The property was well-kept and the location was very peaceful near the end of a dead-end road. Coming from the cold of Montana, we really enjoyed breakfast on the lanai and looking at the stars from the outdoor hot tub. It was a great base to head to Mauna Kea, Volcanoes National Park, Green Sand Beach, and Hilo beaches as well as local attractions such as Champagne Pond, Ahalanui Warm Pond and recent lava flows. We have been visiting the Puna area annually since 2006 and found Makani-lani to be a great value.
This place was absolutely awesome. I don't know how you could ask for more. Nice quiet area with a short walk down to ocean to view sunrise. The house was so nice with an entrance from patio door to a lanai that came around to kitchen patio. 3 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms makes nice for all. All bedrooms left privacy for all. We only needed 2 but would be great for 3 couples or a family. Nice Tiki bar in lower level with a patio exit to backyard with a deck and hot tub. Large backyard with privacy and sweet sounds of nature. Town of Pahoa was a short distance with neat stores and good places to eat. This place is highly recommended and we plan to come back. Laurie was so accommodating and communication was so good. This was an easy 5 star rating.
We just stayed at Makana-lani earlier this month and it was just as beautiful as the pictures! Everything was in excellent shape and the owners were very informative and accommodating. We went to the island for a family wedding and it was just perfect for us! Some other family members rented another home nearby and they did not have the wonderful experience that we had. We count ourselves blessed to have had such a wonderful getaway while we were there and didn't have to worry about a thing! The information that the owners gave us was very helpful too. Enjoy your stay if you are coming to Makana-lani! We sure did!
Sore eyes from looking at possible rentals for your stay in Hawaii? Makana-Lani is just the remedy.
My wife, myself and our two sons planned carefully and well in advance for this important getaway and our efforts were rewarded with this discovery. The work that hosts Laurie and Denny put into the functionality, conveniences and tasteful design of this home made 'peace and quiet' more than just words for us. The kitchen was very much a centre of our stay and our son (a professional chef) had everything at his disposal. The comfortable beds, hot tub and downstairs Tiki bar added luxury to our perfect stay. Outside, the lush vegetation and quiet location made it serene and a short trip to the end of the road provided a lookout to a view like the cover of a romance novel. With a little patience it was easy to spot whales frolicking in the distance. (We were there at Christmas.)
Our hosts made communicating in the time leading up to our arrival swift and effortless. We wouldn't hesitate to return and are passing the word to friends and family. Or, hmmm.. should we be keeping this a secret?
My husband and I rented this vacation home for a week for our anniversary and we were totally very please with our findings. This is a newly remodel home with so much to offer. We enjoyed biking the short distance to the ocean and having quiet time in the evenings on the lanai or in the hot tub. Such a lovely rental home with very reasonable rates. We will be booking this rental home again next time we visit the Big Island. The owners Denny and Laurie were very accommodating with our needs and providing us with points of interest on the island.
As Hawaii can be expensive, we were so surprised and excited to find a place on the big island at such a reasonable price. This vacation home exceeded our expectations. The home was well stocked with basic kitchen/bathroom items so that we did not find ourselves without when we arrived. The beds were comfortable with quality linens. The home was really clean and the floor plan was great. It was truly a home away from home for us. We found the location to be a great place for us to plan our drives and excursions to explore this part of the island. Booking with the owners was a breeze and Laurie was very informative to make our vacation time even more complete.
