Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

My experience as a solo traveler staying at Hale Gediminas was wonderful. The location was gorgeous and peaceful. I was able to enjoy coffee each morning to the sound of the ocean and the island waking up. August and Diva lovely hosts. They invited me over for coffee and gave me tips on what to see/do on the island. They invited me to dinner as well. They also provided snorkel gear, and other beach gear for the duration of my stay. Loved the outdoor kitchen. Overall was very impressed with the level of service and accomodations.

Clean place with excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

A good place to unwind and relax. Augustus and Daiva are excellent hosts. They will make you feel right at home. We had a short chat with them every morning we stayed there and it was such a pleasant start to the morning. They have a very good understanding of the Big Island and if you have any questions about where to go, they are always there to help.

The greenery around the house is amazing. Its a good feeling to wake up to the sounds of the little birds around. Couldn't have asked for a better place and better hosts.

Wonderful property and fantastic hosts!

  • 5 of 5

This property was great for my wife and I when we stayed there for our 20th anniversary in early May. The property was just as the owners describe in their listing. It was clean and had all the amenities that one would need while staying there for a week or more. The property is so lush with all of the plants and trees, making it very private. One of the best parts about this property is that the owners are such great hosts. Both August and Daiva were very kind and helpful about what sights to see and many details about the island that you wouldn't know unless you visited with someone who has lived there for a long time. I enjoyed August taking his time to explain those things to us, and also some of the history of the island. They even invited us to sit with them for coffee in the morning, which was a great experience. When we return to the big island we will definitely stay here if we can. I would highly recommend it for couples or singles, who want a quieter place to relax or go see the sights of the island.

Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5

This property is a hidden jewel. It is by far our favorite place on the Big Island or Maui. It is in a perfect location to explore the Kona coastline all the way to South Point and around the North. Grocery stores are close by so shopping is easy. The room was spotless, private, and quiet. The kitchen had everything you would ever need. The grounds were stunning; so beautifully landscaped.The lanai was great and a perfect place for morning coffee and beautiful sunsets. August always invited us to have coffee with him in the morning and he provided us with beach chairs, an umbrella, beach towels, and an ice chest which was an extra nice touch. He was also knowledgeable, not only about places to visit, but also about the history of Hawaii. Their black sand private beach was usually deserted and a great place to sit and watch the waves. Daiva wasn't there the whole time, but we did have coffee with her and August a couple of mornings and she is a wonderful hostess. We wish we had been able to stay with them longer, but were unable to work it into our schedule. Having said all this you would expect to pay more than a hundred dollars a night to stay, but it is very reasonable. I don't think you will find anything that is close to this anywhere in Hawaii. I would highly recommend this property to anyone and already have to my close friends.
