About Josephine

Our family loves to travel. Friends who live in Kona introduced us to this wonderful paradise. We were convinced that this will be our retiring place so we decided to find the right home. We did and this is the Malulani Green Haven.

Josephine purchased this house in 2002

Why Josephine chose Kailua-Kona

We fell in love with the location of this house. It is on top of rock wall overlooking the most gorgeous panoramic view of the ocean. The house was built for our retirement home in paradise. The master bath was redesigned to fit a jacuzzi. We planted our favorite dwarf mango tree in front. Our first morning was the most exciting since we did not expect to see two cruise ships docked in our view from the lanai. Our family would like to share with you the experience of living in this lovely place and hope you will agree with our choice.

What makes this house unique

Malulani Gardens is a gated neighborhood right in the heart of Kailua-Kona. The location is very convenient to go anywhere whether it is to the beach, getting a quick meal, Starbucks coffee (around the corner) or picking up forgotten items (2 min from Walmart, Safeway). The tourist area of Alii Drive is only two miles away.

17 day stay in Paradise.

  • 4 of 5

Great location, quiet neighbourhood, accommodations perfect for 5 adults. House was a little tired looking, in need of a good deep cleaning and needs fresh paint, blinds and fans need to be cleaned. Had a chance to point this out to owners as they live on mainland and maybe not aware of "tiredness" of property. Found owners very cooperative and easy to work with so I am sure they will address the cleaning issues. We really loved our stay there and would book there again in future and for sure recommend.

views of Kona Town and ocean breezes!

  • 5 of 5

the house is centrally located in a nice gated community. Was well stocked and clean. Lanai offered great view of Kona and cool ocean breezes. Landlord kind enough to let us in house before formal rental period started so we could put groceries in refrigerator. Would surely rent from Josephine again. House served 5 adults well.Two of three bedrooms have an ocean view.

Lovely lanai

  • 4 of 5

There were good and bad points to this property. The location was wonderful - just a short drive to the restaurants and attractions of Ali'i Drive and an invigorating walk to the Safeway store. The exterior was well kept and the lanai very comfortable. We spent a lot of time just relaxing there and enjoying the outstanding view. The interior was spacious with a good layout and well-stocked kitchen.

The basic cleanliness was fine but general maintenance was an issue. Badly stained carpets, grimy cabinets, splotchy walls and ill-fitting screens provided an air of neglect. The furniture was quite nice but a lack of decorative items did not contribute to a homey feeling.

Great place in a gated community

  • 5 of 5

We are family of six, three generations, staying here for a week. Everything is smooth from the 1st inquiry to final security deposit refund. Owner is very responsive and pleasant to work with. The house is clean and well stocked. The view from lani is awesome! We BBQ twice there. Kitchen is great too! We cooked couple dinners and almost all breakfast there. The location is convenient, next to Walmart and Safeway. Owner also allowed us check out a few hours late without charge as the night we left was not rented out. I cannot ask for more. Love the place! Thank you!

Centrally Located House in Gated Community

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very attentive and responsive, making our vacation logistically flawless. Everything from the check-in process, checking-out, and everything in between was near-perfect. The home was perfect for us (2 adults/ 2 kids). The master BR had a jacuzzi that we took full advantage of; the second BR had two twins for the kids; the third had a large bed that went unused. Proximity-wise, it was very close to Wal-Mart and downtown Kona. The gated nature of the neighborhood made for some very quiet evenings, where we could enjoy the stunning sunset out on the lanai. Wish we could still be there!

Outside of no propane for the grill (minor), everything was great. If we get the opportunity again, we'd jump at the chance to stay there again. Mahalo!
