The listing describes this room perfectly. We enjoyed our stay. Having the outdoor kitchen and free parking was nice. August and Diva are very friendly and helpful. The view from the Lanai is also very nice.
After two stays here in two years I can say we like the place. If your looking for a nice clean place to stay and want to sit on the Lanai and enjoy a beautiful sunset away from the hustle and bustle of the city on the Kona side of The Big Island then this is a great place for you. The host and hostess August and Diva are very friendly and helpful, the bed is very comfortable and the view from the Lanai is especially beautiful as you watch the sunset and eat your evening meal or maybe have a drink or two. We have enjoyed many a cup of coffee on this lanai at the little table for two overlooking the beautifully manicured garden all planted by the owners.
A few other nice things about this location is that you are only minutes from The Place of Refuge and Two Steps which has really good diving and snorkeling especially when the Spinner Dolphin are in the cove, which is often in the early mornings. There is also some great diving but somewhat difficult snorkeling at Pebble Beach - which is straight down the small subdivisions main street to the Ocean, and I mean almost straight down their main street to the Ocean ;) South Point and the Green Sand Beach are around 30 minutes away on the very scenic drive south towards Volcano National Park, which is about and hour and a half away.
We were satisfied with our accommodations. The front and back gardens surrounding the property are beautiful. I would rated it 4 stars if the location was closer to the captain cook monument area for snorkeling and if the next door neighbor didn't use use blender at 4 in the morning.
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.
Thank you August and Daiva !
The place was wonderful, a little paradise on the Island. We had everything we need. The kitchen was fully equipped. August and Daiva were very helpful, gave us plenty of information on the island and attractions. We will come back for sure !

The rental is well furbished and clean. You have everything what you need and the location is awesome. August and Davia are nice owners and give useful information about the island. If one day we come back to Hawaii we would stay here again.
