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.

Makana-Lani is centrally located between all the sights on the Puna/Hilo side such as:

Geothermal Hot Ponds,

Volcano National Park

Kapaho tide pools (some of the best snorkeling on the island)

Farmers Markets different days of the week stretching from Makana-Lani to Hilo.

About Denny & Laurie Edmonds

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

What makes this house unique

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!

Thank you!

  • 4 of 5

Thank you so much for a lovely stay. Although a little out of the way (and it rained alot during our stay) - this is a great location to base yourself to see the west side of the island.

The house was perfectly appointed with everything you could want (and more)!! We loved cooking in the kitchen and the fun Tiki Bar. The Spa package is well worth the cost!

Owner's Response: Aloha, yes unfortunately it did rain during your stay more then usual it is Spring time and this year seems to be a bit wetter then normal. We wish you could have stayed longer as 3 days is just not seem long enough. Hopefully you were able to get some exploring in during your stay. This is the East side of the island which is the most green, tropical, quiet and unspoiled Hawaii and is not as busy as the other side of the island which is the West side you mentioned in your review that this was the West side of the island which is incorrect this is the East side and both sides are totally different but each has its own beauty. We are glad you got to enjoy the Spa it really is nice and relaxing especially on the rainier evenings/days but then a clear night under the stars listening to the surf crash against the cliffs is wonderful also. Mahalo and best wishes to you in your travels!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday! Very quiet, private and cozy place surrounded by lush vegetation. The house is spacious and exactly as it shown in the pictures. Excellent location, close to the beautiful "red road", tide pools, thermal pond and Volcanoes National Park. It was so convenient to have literally everything provided (bikes, tennis rackets, snorkel gear, beach stuff), we didn't have to worry about anything! Owners are professional, friendly and super easy to communicate with.

Thank you Laurie and Denny for the great time!

Fantastic place!

  • 5 of 5

Big, Beautiful and well equipped house, had all we needed plus the fun stuff like boogie boards, snorkles and masks, beach chairs, bikes and much more. It is the last house on a dead end street so there is no traffic. The bed was perfect, and the lower level shower is awsome! Great place :)

Owner's Response: Mahalo for the kind words about our home and we are glad that you enjoy our home and your visit to the Big Isle. The shower in lower level yes I love that one. We wanted to give it a spa type feel as much as we could so it is nice to hear from a guest that they liked it. Should you visit the East side of the isle again you are more then welcome to stay as our guests. ~~~ 5 star guest all the way! ~~~

Jungle Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need except the groceries, and some of them were included too.

First of all, thank you to the great host who keep a well maintained clean house and yard. They were exceptional to deal with from the first email. The house is centrally located to many attractions in the Puna district, ie : hot ponds, tide pools, markets. The yard is a little jungle paradise, the house was a wonderful retreat to return to at the end of a day exploring and adventuring. A great house for the money...I will be repeat customer.

Awesome Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing. The owners have included everything one would need for a great vacation. The home is

spacious with large rooms, multiple decks and even a Hot Tub. The back yard is private and resembles the Garden of Eden (Hawiian style). The house came with lots of towels, and plenty of play toys too like Boogie Boards, Snorkel equipment and bikes. Our family had a great time in the Hilo area and really enjoyed being

able to come home to a great house. The best house for the money hands down!
