About the property

3 deluxe bedroom suites, 3 full bathrooms with walk-in showers, sleeps 7-8.

Welcome to the Southern Belle, constructed December 2011. On the Big Island, we are located at sea level in the last fishing village of quiet, rural Milolii on an ancient lava flow, with lava coastline.

Located 33 miles south from Kailua-Kona, just 63 miles to the Volcano National Park. We are equi-distant between many popular tourist sites located on the Kona Coast side of the Big Island, i.e. Kealakekua Bay, Place of Refuge, Kahalu'u Black Sands Beach Park, Honomolino Bay, Punalu'u Black Sands Beach Park, Volcano National Park, to name a few.

Approximately 1-1/2 hours drive south from the Kona International Airport.

A very spacious 1680 s.f. home with open beam ceilings adding to the sense of space. Large 10' windows, connect the home to its ocean views; with a view of the ocean from every room. Italian Porcelain Tile, Granite Counters, Large Vanity and Kitchen Sinks, Walk-In Tile and Glass Block Showers are another highlight.

A Treadmill, 2 Tandem Kayaks and Snorkel equipment available for your pleasure upon request.

We cater to the particular!

Milolii is known throughout the islands for its deep sea fishing, and clear waters; good for diving.

The 'last fishing village' in Hawaii is just a 10 minute drive within the Milolii Beach Lots subdivision, where a trail leading to a coconut tree lined black sand beach (Honomolino), offers fantastic snorkeling.

The village has a County boat ramp and camp grounds, and offers easy access for kayaking and deep sea fishing.

Milolii offers some of the most underdeveloped stretches of coastline on the Big Island, with secret beaches to explore.

Season whale watching, and Spinner Dolphins. As many as 10,000 Humpback Whales visit the Hawaiian waters annually from November through May. These endangered mammals enjoy the state's warm waters in the winter to breed, give birth and nurse their young.

Spectacular sunsets can be viewed directly straight ahead of the house. Have your camera ready! Milolii.....'where the sun meets the sea', and everyone says hello!

New built Milolii's Southern Belle on the Big Island of Hawaii, South Kona Coast, is directly across the ocean, approximately 50 yards.

During whale season, you will hear the whales at night. During the day, you will see them; just look straight ahead, across from the 500 s.f. lanai.

The waters in this location are considered some of the best KAYAKING, diving and fishing grounds in Hawaii.

Two deluxe bedrooms each with their own ensuite is convenient; with king beds and walk-in showers on the main level of the house. There is a separate entrance ground level to a bedroom/den, with 1 queen bed, 1 double bed, and access to a bathroom facility including a shower, on ground level. This floor plan allows privacy for couples, singles and extended family in the main level of the house, as well as the ground level of the house.

Every night you will watch the sun set below the horizon. This just built home is simply immaculate and fully equipped. Has all that you need. Just bring your toothbrush.

Beautiful home in rural area

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely and offers panoramic views of ocean, mountains and lava fields. I would definitely recommend this property if you know you will be traveling around the island as it is conveniently located between Kailua-Kona and Hilo, whilst yet being on the sunnier west coast of the Big Island.

The drive down Milolii Rd can be a bit tricky as it is quite steep and winding the first time around, so be careful.

Comfortable, clean and affordable

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic stay at the rental home in Milolii. The house was close to many locations. We were able to hike to green beach, explore black beaches, Kohala zip line is only 2 hours away, went to volcano park, and even into Hilo. The location is beautiful, restful, and very comfortable for a family or a group of individuals. I would highly recommend going through this rental agency. I know we will pass this vacation information on to our friends in Oahu.

Fabulous Place - We Hated to Leave

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful house has everything going for it! It is absolutely lovely, beautifully appointed, and spotlessly clean. We felt like we were staying at the Ritz Carlton, but better. You are right across the street from the ocean with an unobstructed view. Elaine and Ole Jensen were wonderful hosts. They've thought of everything you might need and provided it. If you are thinking of going to Milolii, I can't recommend this house enough.

Lovely Miloli'i home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a 10 day stay at this beautiful home. We have stayed in A LOT of rental homes, and this was BY FAR the best equipped house we've ever been in! The beds and linens are great, the kitchen FULLY equipped for even the most gourmet cooking, and kayaks and snorkling equipment are all included. The view from everywhere in the house and HUGE lanai is spectacular. The owners are kind, helpful and immediately responsive to any question or need. The village is wonderfully quiet, both local beaches are great. We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend this spot.

Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday in Milloli at the Southern Belle which is a lovely new home with a magnificent view of the ocean from the very large lanai.

The house is perfect for a relaxed vacation.

It is large and very well equipped to enhance opportunities to be able to spend your entire

vacation in the area.

Everything one would need has been provided for the renter's convenience.

The large bedrooms, each with their own ensuite is so convenient.

The barbeque and kitchen are perfect for creating your own meals.

The home is located at sea level near the historic fishing village of Milloli.

Lots of opportunites for walking, viewing tidal pools, or just relaxing while watching for whales or dolphins.

It is a drive from the major centre, Kona, and a car is essential to obtain supplies, or to venture out for all the exciting things to do on the island.

Family Big Island Trip

  • 5 of 5

My family, including my mom, dad, two brothers (26 and 19), and grandpa, all spent a week at this lovely vacation rental. This trip was to celebrate my recent Master's graduation from University of Hawaii-Manoa and to visit an island that we had not all been to. This place was perfect for a large family that wants to spend quality time with each other, but not be on top of each other! The rental is very spacious and has practically everything you need in a house. Our favorite amenity were the two double man kayaks waiting for us. We launched the kayaks in the old village and kayaked over to Honomalino Bay, most days our very own private beach. The reef, less than 100 yards from the shore, was spectacular. My Dad compared it to what the reefs used to be like in the (Florida) Keys in 60's. The Milolii community is very quite and relaxing, a definite bonus after working so much to complete my Master's. The view from the over-sized lanai is perfect, direct oceanview and perfect sunset watching place.

The owners, Elaine and Ole, live on the Big Island and are easily reachable if any problems arise. We arrived late on the 18th, but the place was ready and welcoming when we got there. The next morning Elaine called to make sure the arrival the night before went smoothly. There were even fresh flowers in a vase!
