This darling and affordable two-bedroom, one bath house boasts an excellent view of the Kohala Coastline's blue water. Conveniently located in Kawaihae Village just minutes from luxury resorts and numerous white sandy beaches, this home is perfect for a small family. The owner has graciously provided every convenience to make your stay enjoyable and comfortable such as high speed internet and WIFI for those who want to check their email. World class golf, tennis, beaches, just minutes away. Great ocean view lanai with hot tub and dining area.
We don't enjoy big hotels or being in the middle of everything. That is why we appreciate Hale Maluhia. It is low key and relaxing. It has a lanai that wraps around two sides of the house where you can eat, relax in chairs or loungers but you are also close to great beaches. Everything the other reviewers say is true, the owner is easy to work with and there is everything you need here at Hale Maluhia. At the top of the hill, about 15 minute drive from the house, is Waimea or Kamuela as it is also called, where there are a number of grocery stores, including an organic store, which we frequent, as well as some great restaurants and shops. There are also farmers markets on Wednesday and Saturday. We have been to the BI a number of times and always passed by the Blue Dragon in Kawaihae but this time we made a reservation and had a great time, good food, music and dancing. I have dietary restrictions and there were very helpful and flexible. There are a few other good restaurants in Kawaihae and of course you can always go to the hotel resorts as well. Another good restaurant that just opened up in Honoka'a is called Green Market with local organic food that is fabulous. It is a half hour drive from the house but very worth it. And if you time it with an event at the Honoka'a Peoples theatre it is all the more fun. We love the Kohala coast and this little cottage.
We had a great stay here. Very clean and well maintained. It is so nice to be in the kitchen, preparing dinner and getting to look out at the beautiful ocean view. The lanai seating areas are very comfortable as well. The house has many extras, like beach chairs and toys. There is a bit of road noise if you are outside, but it really didn't bother us. So convenient to Hapuna, Mauna Kea and Waimea. We will definitely stay here again.
It was our first trip to Hawaii and we are so glad we choose this property and location. Hale Maluhia has a charming homey feel. The house is spotless and well maintained. You will enjoy dinners at the big picnic table on the Lanai while watching the sun set over the ocean. Doesn't get much better than that. As other reviews commented the house is stocked with everything you need to enjoy your stay, not stripped down the the bare essentials like some vacation rentals. It even had a high chair and pack n play for our 9 month old. The best beaches are truly only a few minutes away and much nicer than the ones in Kailua-Kona. Check-in and Check-out is simple and the owners are responsive and easy to get in touch with. We searched many properties and this is definitely the best value we could find. You won't be disappointed.
This is the third time we have rented Hale Maluhia and each time it becomes more difficult to leave! There is a comfort and privacy about this house which makes it supremely relaxing! What a wonderful way to start our day each morning with breakfast on the lanai with a glorious view of the coast! Not to mention sitting in the hot tub at night and counting shooting stars, what a fantastic night sky! Oh, and don't forget to watch the evening sunset, not to be missed! Not to mention that some of the very best beaches (snorkeling and swimming) are only a 5-10 minute drive away. This house is not new but it has everything you need for a wonderful home away from home. We will return, again and again, it is our home away from home. Mahalo and Aloha!
What a fantastic place to stay. Gorgeous view, the pictures don't even come close to doing it justice. Everything we could possibly need was provided- from every kitchen tool imaginable to towels for showers and the beach, a closet full of various sunscreens, novels and guidebooks for the island. Also in the laundry room there are beach toys for young and old including chairs, mats, boogie boards a sand toys for the kids. I spoke with Georgine over the phone and she was so nice and so helpful. There are multiple seating options on the lanai, so you can lounge with a book and a drink or sit at the picnic table and enjoy your meals with the gorgeous blue ocean for a view. Did I mention there's a hot tub? Also with an ocean view :) It also truly is just a few minutes drive from the best beach and really good snorkeling. There are some nice lunch spots around the corner if you want a more local experience- we had the best fish sandwich of our life. Definitely a good deal for a really lovely, comfortable and well-appointed home in an excellent location!
This property is immaculate and has everything needed for a great stay on the big Island. It is nicely decorated and very spacious. The view is great, as is the location.
We especially appreciated having a hot tub.
