Hale Maluhia is our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

I believe this is our 4th stay at Hale Maluhia and it won't be our last! I am a bit hesitant in writing a review as each time I do it gets harder to reserve our little slice of paradise! We were blessed to have almost a full 2 weeks this stay due to our son's wedding (only 10 minutes away) and various events (btw, the yard served as a great background for groom/groomsmen photos!). We love the location of this property as you are minutes to some of the finest snorkel beaches on the island. It is easy access to major roadways and is rather centrally located with Waimea only 15 minutes away, Waikoloa, 15 minutes and Kona 30 minutes away. If you can't get past the road below the backyard and some resultant road noise then don't stay here. To us the view of the Kohala coastline more than makes up for the bit of noise. The house itself is older but clean and well maintained, charming with all the basic necessities supplied. The owner, Georgine, is always available if needed but not intrusive. Nothing compares when we can enjoy our breakfast on the lanai or cocktails while watching a beautiful sunset over the pacific, and last but not least, watching shooting stars overhead while soaking in the hot tub! Ahhhhh take me back Hale Maluhia!

Thanks again Georgine, we will return!

Great experienc on big island

  • 4 of 5

The house was very well equiped with everything you need for a great vacation.

Good location to discover the west part of big island, beautiful beaches with white sand and also the waipio valley.

A lot of Geycos came and my kids love observing them.

Thank you, Mahalo.

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with three friends to attend a wedding at one of the nearby resorts. The location was excellent; just five minutes from the wedding venue, about 20 minutes from Wimea's shopping, food, and restaurants, and convenient to many beautiful beaches. The house was clean and comfortable and even without air conditioning in the two bedrooms or living room, we were quite comfortable with the fans provided.

Georgene's communication was excellent and I think we would all stay here again if we're on the Big Island in the future.

Great for the Price. Excellent management.

  • 3 of 5

Good Stuff:

The owner is wonderful! Responsive, professional, welcoming, thorough.

The condo is very clean.

Location was ideal (for us, anyway).

Kitchen is well-stocked.

Great selection of lawn furniture.

It's a separate house in a very quiet neighborhood, very private. A little oasis.

Couldn't ask for a better view.

You could fit a lot of people in if you wanted to.

Free wifi.

Things I wish I'd known:

No AC.

You have to drive your garbage to the dump on your way out. The one that's close by has very limited hours, so you may have to leave a half hour earlier than you planned.

Wonderful lovely house with great view and location.

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully furnished with lovely art on the walls. 2 bedrooms plus an office, large and well equipped kitchen, and sweet living room . It's a great place, very sweet, with a spacious feeling inside and outside, and the neighbors were so quiet (or not even home). Great location, only 5 minute drive to the great beach Hapuna and even closer to a wonderful secret beach at a cove that one sees from the lanai. The place is pretty close to the water but sits up on a hill, in small little neighborhood. The lanai view is fabulous; you can see all the way down the coast towards Kona and to Mauna Loa. But a negative factor is that the main road is right down below, fairly close, and so there is traffic noise. Yet it didn't bother us, so I would accept the noise because of the great view and location. We would certainly stay here again next time on the big isle. Good shopping market about 10 min drive away. Also, very nice owner to email with. We were extremely pleased with our choice to stay here.

Relaxing, private and with a great ocean view

  • 4 of 5

This is a very homey rental. We found it clean and ready for our use. The owner's directions and instructions were spot on accurate and very helpful. The motion sensor outdoor lighting made it easy to access the house since we arrived after dark. My nine year old and I were very happy to hang out there. We had plenty of room on the wrap around lanai to invite family over for breakfast. The only thing we needed to bring was food and our clothing. Everything else was provided. I just wish it had been available longer, it is that popular!
