10/2015 We made several updates to the guesthouse including: sliding glass windows over kitchen sink, new bathroom tile, toilet, window screen, and paint in the bathroom, fixed a small roof leak, added a screen door on the front entrance, and put in a new electric cooktop. Our next project will be to repaint the living room!

My husband never wanted to go to Hawaii because it was too touristy.On that note, I chose the big island and staying at the Ohio Hale was the best decision I made. He loved being away from it all yet close enough to all the conveniences. We loved exploring the island and saw the majority of it in the 8 days we were there. We get tired driving and booked a hotel in hilo for 1 night, I recommend two to see everything, its a great way to drive around the whole island. Kyla was extremely helpful in answering all my questions and her mom joined us for a glass of wine one evening. There is a great fish and chips place not far from where we stayed that was delicious, featuring their local fish ono. My favorite part of the trip was relaxing on the deck morning and evening and soaking in the hot tub with the beautiful view. I cant wait to come back. My thanks to the Livingston family.
Perfectly private with a gorgeous view! Very comfortable bed. We always left the windows open even when we left for the day and never felt that security was an issue, although a small hotel style safe might be nice. The deck & hot tub were fantastic! We would highly recommend this place, especially if you don't like to be in the heart of the tourist zone. It was conveniently located to most of our activities.
Pleasant stay, worked as a base to see the west side of the island. Hot tub was fun, looking out over the view.
The bay was a 20 minute drive. Traffic heading north could be very slow according to the hour. Convenient little market close by. The weather was pleasant although we experience some wind and morning cool temps. It should be noted that the "window" in front of the kitchen sink is a screen only. The kitchen is moderately equipped, the pot and pan collection was scratched non stick surfaces ewww. A decent place, comfortable bed. Uncomfortable love seat. Wished it was a little more Cozy.
I was a little adventure to find O'hia Hale when we arrived in middle of the night. However, it was worth the efforts... We really loved our small green cottage with the large lanai with that great view. We started each day with a relaxing bath in the whirlpool and enjoyed our meals on the lanai. We loved the geckos who have become our friends during our stay there. They watched us every minute and tried to catch some crumbs from our bread or cake. The nights were cool and so calm and the bed was so good (I think it was a memory foam matresse) that we could sleep very deeply. The owners were very kind and provided us with lots of oranges and bananas from their property. The cottage was absolutely clean and we felt really good in it.
I think all the other things as to the equipment etc. has been said before by other visitors. We would recommend this cottage to anyone who needs to relax and does not need to be entertained.
During our move to Captain Cook, we needed a place to stay for a couple of weeks before we could move into our house. Our time at the Ohia Hale was such a treat!
For us, the location is perfect. Our house is just below the cottage. Even though it was a busy time for us, we took the time to enjoy the amazing view from the lanai. The sunset dinners were so nice after a long day.
The cottage has everything - kitchen, washer/dryer, internet and a grill. I would not hesitate to stay again. When friends and family visit, this will be on the top of list for supplemental places to stay.
Though we never met, Kyla was very helpful!
O hia Hale was the perfect vacation hideaway for us. We don't like condo-villes and prefer to be in quiet places where we can immerse ourselves in the Big Island's natural beauty. This rental was exactly what we were looking for. The birds serenaded us each morning and nothing beats having coffee and breakfast on the lanai overlooking Kealakekua Bay. The view is stunning and always offered new things to see. We stayed for ten days during which the cottage was our home base for adventures all over the island. After filling our pantry and fridge at Costco and Safeway, we took advantage of the cooler in the shed to pack lunches, snacks and cold drinks for each day's adventure. And when those adventures included beach time or snorkeling, it was very convenient to have the washer/dryer to get our swim suits and towels ready for the next day. Our hosts were delightful and only there when we needed them. The kitchen is well equipped and we used the gas grill several times. And after a long and active day, we enjoyed the hot tub, even when it rained. If we come back we will definitely try to book O hia Hale. I can't imagine a better spot!
Located in the heart of Captain Cook, this quaint, private home offers the best of South Kona and easy access to Kailua-Kona. Offering a great view a short drive to both Kealakekua Bay and The Place of Refuge there is plenty of cultural, historic sites to see. Only an hour and a half drive from Volcanos National Park and two hours from Hilo.
