On the road to enchanting Kealakekua Bay, Mapuana is a garden haven unit surrounded by fragrant tropical flowering plants and trees and a beautiful ocean view.
The unit has a very spacious healing atmosphere, with a large lanai for outdoor dining while The unit has it's own private entrance.
There is a full kitchen equipped with everything you need. The unit is tastefully furnished with a multicultural feeling. There is fast speed internet and a washer/dryer.
The area is blessed by abundant sealife,warm ocean,tropical plantlife and amazing Aloha. It is very close to stellar snorkeling and swimming areas, where dolphins and turtles have their home. Its located in a rich farming area where Kona coffee and macnuts are grown.
Both Kealakekua Bay and shopping and restaurants are 5 minutes away. This is a rural and tropical area but amenities are very close by.
All taxes are included in the nightly rate.
I am an Artist and love beauty. I believe my vacation rental reflects that. I have lived in other tropical locations and have surrounded Mapuana with amazing tropical foliage and flowering trees.
Mapuana means wind blown fragrance in Hawaiian and it is the fragrance that greets the guests who grace us by staying at our site.
Kealakekua drew me here with its natural beauty. Nothing compares to the bays here with easy access to oceann life including dolphins, turtles and whales. The feeling of Aloha resonates here and I was drawn here to live a natural life. Its truly the 'real' Hawaii.
The feel of being in a real part of Hawaii is evident in our location. Kealakekua Bay is minutes away with much Hawaiian history, great snorkeling and the presence of dolphins, turtles and tropical fish.
We are in pure bliss here in your exquisite "Tree house" pushing up into the heavens! We arrived after as it was getting dark last night (Thursday) and quietly got ourselves settled. We had such a great time doing an art tour of all your eclectic and fantastic pieces. WE LOVE IT HERE!
We had a magical sunset yoga time on the lanai this evening and are enjoying the camaraderie of
all our gecko friends. We are being very aware of the bamboo floors and treating all your treasures with much deserved reverence.
We hope to meet you someday soon. If you are on island and around it would be wonderful to have a quick visit. Otherwise, we just thank you and feel so blessed to be here for our much belated honeymoon!
I am somewhat torn between the pros and cons of this accommodation. All that has been listed before me is true: yes, this place has magical surroundings, it is wonderful that it is so open to nature, which of course means you will meet geckos (loved them), roaches and mosquitos (it's Hawaii, so that's how it is :)), and hear the sound of birds and coqui frogs day and night (loved them, for us it was soothing!). It is also true that the accommodation is not super-clean in all corners, but this was not what we really had problems to get used to (as long kitchen + bathroom + sheets are all clean, it's fine, and they of course were), but the practically no separation from our neighbour. That is something you cannot really find a good excuse for - all it would take is two good doors instead of the current ones, of which one is a sliding door (from the neighbours' side), and the other is one with a shutter and no threshold (from our bedroom's side). This means we could basically hear anything that went on in the neghbourhood day and night, and it was sometimes really, really disturbing. :( It could be solved so simply with better doors, and then it would be a five star accommodation! But I want to end with something positive: we loved the enlighted staircase that leads up to the flat from the purely wonderful garden, the furnishing, and the proximity of the Kealakekua Bay. Sandia's instructions were very clearly given, so we found the place easily, and she was also fast with communication.
We had an awesome stay with our baby. Everything was very clean and the kithen has every thing you need. Great deck to sit and enjoy outside. We would always come back and we will recommend this place to our friends.
Love the perfect surroundings and comfortable living area with beautiful flowers around the balcony. Roosters did good job in waking us up for our early morning kayaking! We love nature.
A very individual accomodation with the perceptible presens of the landlady. Many original, artistically ambicious paintings of lokal women, locatad in a lush tropical vegetation, oceanview from a wellsized balcony without the possibility of observation by other people (nude brakfast possible).
Clean accomodation, detailed description of approuch (my gps knew the location), conveniant and silent siting -thanks a lot, I would recommand the home to my friends!
We walked into this spacious suite and felt immediately at home. Its proximity to the bay, and shops and beautiful view make it a terrific place to be, and the kitchen has everything one needs to enjoy all the fresh fruit, fish, and local foods from the market. I already miss the wee geckos. Great deal at a great price. Can't wait to return!
We had a nice stay! Enjoyed the place very much, especially watching the sunsets every evening on the balcony. Birds and frogs singing everyday! Loved the geckos everywhere. The only drawback was the rooster!
