Hale Maluhia - 2 Minutes from the Big Island's Best Beaches
average rating of 4.625 based on 16 reviews

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!

Wonderfully relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house close to the best beaches on the island. Hapuna beach is the closest big sandy beach just minutes away. There is a beautiful view of the coast from the private lanai. We enjoyed the numerous places to sit on the lanai and relax in the beautiful island breeze. Just minutes away Blue Dragon restaurant has great meals and entertaining weekend music in the little village of Kawaihae at the Kawaihae harbour which also has a few other good restaurants and nice art gallery. The homeowner is wonderful to work with and has thought of everything. The kitchen is full of useful utensils and cooking implements. Shopping bags are available for your grocery trips and the kitchen had a number of spices to get us started. Beds are comfortable and bedrooms quiet and have fans if you find the island breeze not cooling enough. Wifi worked well. There is an assortment of beach toys and chairs , including an umbrella for your beach trips. There was nothing we needed that wasn't available. We would definitely recommend to friends and we are returning next year.
