Excellent

We enjoyed a week at this beautifully appointed downstairs studio. The accommodation was excellent and spotlessly clean. Dennis was very attentive when we had troubles with the WiFi and kept on top of the problem until it was fixed. The location on the island is ideal for outings but I have to say that Kealakekua Bay is probably one of the most charming spots on the island.

Our Own Little Paradise!

Our stay at Hale Lana was perfect--we have stayed in many vacation rentals on the islands and all over the country and this is the cleanest, most tastefully decorated rental of them all. It is peaceful, quiet, and relaxing and yet very close to superb snorkeling, shopping, restaurants, and other activities. The provision of beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, ice chest, and beach mats was terrific. Some of the best snorkeling on the island is very nearby at Two Step and Captain Cook as well as the night snorkeling adventure with the giant mantas ,which is a must!! The gorgeous outdoor shower is an added bonus that is very enjoyable and the use of the washer and dryer and clothesline was wonderful. Dennis is very personable and professional to communicate with and makes the rental process very efficient and easy. You cannot go wrong with this little gem in the Hawaiian paradise!!

Meticulously executed.

  • Submitted: Jul 14, 2012

The Hale Lana studio is thoughtfully designed and meticulously executed to be inviting, comfortable and delightfully simple. The slate floors are surprisingly easy on the feet. The color scheme is restful and well coordinated. The wicker furniture is of very high quality and comfort. The ceiling fans make for comfortable sleeping and are essentially noiseless and in perfect balance. Not that common as we learned elsewhere on this trip. The airiness of the sliding glass doors makes the indoors nearly outdoors. You have supplied very high quality cooking pots and various utensils quite above the norm for rentals we have seen. The location is SO quiet, perfect for those of us who are not seeking the fast lane on our Hawaii trip. The laundry equipment works easily and well and we appreciated the supplying of laundry soap.
We stayed at a much different facility in Hilo and cut that side of the trip short to return to the comfort and simple elegance of Hale Lana. Memorable INDEED. And we had GREAT snorkeling right at the Bay and at nearby Two Step. If we return to the Big Island, we will consider Hale Lana again. Mahalo for providing such a wonderful place to stay and such a friendly yet business-like interface.

my friend and i visited from maui. she got the bed and i got
the air mattress. we were sooooooo happy with our home
away from home. clean, light, beautiful. walk 3 minutes to
the bay, swim with the dolphins and then home for a huge
brunch every day. only ate out two meals. and just down
the road is another fantastic dolphin spot, "two step". we
loved the out door shower. would definitely stay here again.
actually thought it would be fun to rent both upstairs and
downstairs. mahalo again...rupa and nirupam

Repeat Hawaii vacationers

Arrived after dark in a rain storm and didn't fully appreciate the beauty of this place until the next morning. Woke up in absolute paradise. Very quiet and tranquil. Great place to unwind and relax. Perfect for 2 people. The studio is very well appointed and the colors used in the unit are perfect for the surroundings. Kealakekua Bay is crystal clear for snorkling and the highlight of our trip was swimming with spinner dolphins. They "played" with us for over an hour. Hale Lana is remote enough for complete tranquility, but within a reasonable driving range for groceries, restaurants and sightseeing. We can't wait to return. Mahalo for making this the perfect vacation.

Great 15th Anniversary swimming with the dolphins!

Thank you so much for the effort that obviously went into preparing such a wonderful place for guests! We throughly enjoyed our stay. We had a great 15th anniversary swimming with the dolphins in the bay and snorkeling in a huge underwater "aquarium" at Captain Cook Monument. This vacation will be tough to ever beat. Loved the CLEAN studio and gorgeous tropical landscaping. The beach chairs, cooler, umbrella and all the beach extras were so helpful! Mahalo

Fine Art

This place is beautiful! It's like staying in a piece of fine art; both inside and out! And we love the way the outside is brought in with the walls of windows. We also greatly appreciated the provision of beach chairs and towels. The highlight of this 40th anniversary (so far) was kayaking to the monument and snorkeling. The fish and coral out there are outstanding! If you plan to go, go early and plan to stay at least 4 or 5 hours.
