Talk about out in the middle of Nowhere.This is fantastic.Crashing waves,bird sounds,lack of traffic.We are really looking forward to our stay. This place is more than we had hoped for.Thank youfor allowing us to stay here.The porch is awesome,house is situated wonderfully.We hope that in the future we would really like to come back here.The north&east part of the island is awesome, but we like the remote southwest part for it's peacefulnes,the waves at night.INCREDIBLE!

"Loved this place"

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from staying at the Hula Hut, and we loved it. Melanie was awesome always answering emails quickly. My boys loved it here, they did not want to leave. We parked our car at the Milolii fishing village parking lot and walked a trail that is marked with yellow arrows to a black sand beach, we were the only ones there all day and walked up to the rocks where the boys jumped off rocks into the blue water below.

The place is exactly as described, actually the pictures do not do it justice, it was beautiful and peaceful. We sat outside and rocked in the swing in the evening and just enjoyed the tranquility, In the laundry room there were boogie boards, snorkeling gear, umbrellas, and chairs, and ice chest, water shoes and more. Also very stocked with supplies in case you forget anything. Funny thing is a guest at another place came by to borrow milk and told me he had to spend 3 hours cleaning the place he rented before he could stay , I showed him Melanies place and he was shocked at the luxury. I strongly recommend this place and it will be my first choice when coming back. Thanks Melanie!!!!

Happy Family

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed going out onto the lanai and listening to the ocean. We like the seclusion and not being drowned by street lights. The house was clean and had everything on need. We also enjoyed the short distant to go snorkeling.

Sounds of the Sea!

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful Stay, Quite & secluded. The cool ocean breeze was wonderful & the sound of the surf at night was a great relaxer. Not to much of a Family spot, but if you are looking for peace and quite this is the spot!

awesome and very comfortable. Really no reason to leave.

  • 5 of 5

The drive down to the ocean will be something i will tell for years to come. Awesome accommodations and very comfortable living. Very updated. Awesome walks on very nice paved trails. Ocean was just wild when we were there. It was very entertaining watching the waves hit the wall and splash up. Not a close drive back to Kona but a relatively short drive and straight road to Oceanview with a nice grocery store and liquor store and very nice cafe and coffee shop. Had a 1 year old along and was perfect. Wonderful secured decks with grill.

Great place to start or end your day!

  • 5 of 5

This house and location are amazing. We watched a whale from the front deck as we at breakfast. Get place to stay if traveling the south part of the island. There is a porta potty right in front of the house as mentioned in another review but you can take a 145 ft walk to watch and photo the sunsets so not a big deal. Nice Jacuzzi Tub in lower level bedroom. I will definitely come back if on the island again. We had our 2 and 5 year olds with us and this place worked perfectly. Pick up water and groceries and get a way from it all.

This house has everything! Lots of room, all the amenities and in a quiet, small community right near the surf. About half way between Kona and the volcano, so well-located for seeing the park and on to Hilo. The owner was very helpful in providing information on getting there and things to do in the area.
