Milolii house description

Aloha Friends, The Puhala Hale is a newly constructed (Jan. 08) 4+ Bedroom, 2.5 Bath home, on the Big Island of Hawaii. It boasts panoramic ocean views and access to one of the most exclusive black sand beaches on the Big Island. Leave the pressures of life behind and relax at this one-of-a-kind retreat

The Puhala Hale is perfect vacation spot to relax by the sea away from traffic congestion, airport noise pollution and the hustle and bustle of “in-town” resorts and crowded tourist areas. At the end of nearly every day, you can enjoy an exceptionally beautiful sunset. The Puhala offers spectacular ocean views from nearly every room and the large tiled and covered lanais are perfect for relaxing while enjoying the coastal sea breezes. The cooling breezes and the sun-warmed, dry climate is year long in South Kona, and the homes location is at an ideal elevation for temperature, never too hot, or chilly.

The Puhala Hale is located 33 miles south from Kailua-Kona, and 63 miles from the Volcano. The 45-minute coastal drive south of Kailua-Kona through coffee country is well worth it to enjoy this rural retreat that is still convenient and within a ten-minute drive to groceries and more. Milolii is a quiet coastal area, perfect to relax and enjoy the layback Hawaiian lifestyle, though close enough to take short trips to golf, shop and fine dine. Puhala Hale is convenient to Kona and the Hilo Airports, as well as a short drive to Volcano National Park, City of Refuge, Black Sand Beach and Hawaii’s South Point. The Milolii area is world renowned for its pristine ocean waters and awesome deep-sea fishing opportunities. The area allows you to explore tide pools, caves and lava tubes while hiking along historical sites and ancient walls.

The Puhala Hale comes equipped with snorkel gear since it’s just a short drive down to the water and beaches were snorkeling and scuba diving is world class. Humpback Whale season is Dec.-March. So whale watching (and hearing at night) can become your favorite pastime. Just minutes to the beach, there is a small park with a secret trail head to the coconut lined black sand beach of Honomalino, where you may by chance get to swim with the sea turtles and spinner dolphins while sun tanning and enjoying the pristine beach and waters.

                This house is beautiful! We wanted a vacation place near South Point and not overrun with tourists but at the same time, we wanted to be close enough to visit both the Hilo and Kona sides of the island, the location was perfect. Our flight arrived late and GPS did not work so I advise printing directions in advance and maybe using google to familiarize yourself with the area a little bit. My sister freaked about the driveway being so steep and navigating the rental car in the parking area was tricky. However, we had two men on this trip so we just tossed them the keys. The only other thing I would mention is that the pool table equipment wasn't in good condition. The cues were missing tips or broken. We managed to salvage a single stick and took turns which was great since we played pool almost every night. Everything else was beautiful. The house is huge and lovely, the kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked with everything we needed. We stopped at the Walmart in Kona on the way in for staple items since we were staying for several days and then took advantage of the small grocery store in Ocean View (best prices FOR SURE in the area). We cooked most of our meals in the kitchen or on the grill, only eating out a few times during our stay. The view was spectacular and I pretty much lived in the hammock outside my bedroom. I would absolutely rent this house again.

                Owner response: Mahalo, Glad you enjoyed your stay! I visited just after your stay and I guess the housekeeper had gotten our maintenance man to fix them. I'm going to buy some new sticks, allot of guests have children and they are really rough on the billiard table, equipment and games in general. We do our best to keep all of it in order, I apologize Thanks for letting us know, enjoy your summer :) Nancy

                This is a gorgeous home, very quiet and private, with a huge and well-appointed patio that maximizes the dramatic views. We enjoyed cooking in, relaxing and reading, and hiking to Honomalino beach for snorkeling and swimming. After hiking down from the house to the water and back up the very steep hills, we wisely decided to drive to the bottom and park before doing our daily exercise along the water! This was a good location to get to the volcano, however it was a bit isolated in terms of having access to nearby restaurants. Only negatives for us were the very small and cold pool, and the VOG that unfortunately was present most days of our stay, which prevented our being able to see any sunsets. Linda was very responsive and helpful and we really enjoyed our stay.

                Linda, We had a fabulous week at your wonderful Hale! Very relaxing and much quieter than the Hilo-side since the frogs haven’t taken-up residence here yet-! We’ve explored most of the island during our three weeks here yet we’ve always looked forward to returning to your house at the end of the day and sit back with a glass of wine! You did a great job both building and decorating this mountain side paradise! You know you’ve had a great holiday when you forget what day it is...somehow it doesn’t seem to matter so much around here! We’re going to miss it...Mahalo,

                Dear Linda, Just a quick note and much belated thank you for giving us the info about going down to see the Spinner Dolphins. We had great luck! The pod was not far from shore, and we swam out with our snorkels and masks and spent an hour with them. It was extraordinary! They seemed very comfortable with us around, and were mating and playing and spinning. We even saw a mother and baby. It was heaven! We were right in the middle of the group, close enough to touch them had we tried, and they swam around us and under us, swam off and then returned, over and over. Had we not had to leave, I think that we could easily have spent another hour amongst them. What a treat. We felt like we had an experience of a lifetime. Your house is lovely and so well appointed. We apologize that we left such a huge quantity of garbage and didn’t do as good a job as we would have liked in straightening up. We stayed so long with the dolphins that we had to rush to catch our plane. Our stay on the Big Island was memorable and a big success. We had a day of kayaking and snorkeling, a day of hiking at the Volcano and then the thrill of swimming with the dolphins. My daughter was so thrilled with it all—she and her husband almost never get away for long weekends on the outer islands. (After ten years on Oahu, this was my daughter’s first time!). We were so glad to make it such a special trip! Many thanks again for making sure we headed down to the beach in town—we may not have done so if you hadn’t encouraged us and given us good directions. And, thanks too for the Kamaina Rate!

                Hi Linda, Chantal here. First of all, I just wanted to express my gratitude. My family and I just left the Puhala Hale (aka paradise). I just wanted to let you know that your hale was perfect for our little family reunion. You had everything that we needed and we were able to explore the Big Island to the fullest while staying all together. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.

                Saturday, July 11, 2009 Linda, We just returned yesterday from our trip to Hawaii. I just wanted to let you know what a great time we had the week we stayed at your house (we were so busy I forgot to write a note in your book). The house was great, beautiful and even better than you described (though I can say I didn’t enjoy traveling the winding road to get there – but my family always tells me I don’t have an adventurous bone in my body). Thank you for the beach recommendations. We really enjoyed Honomalino Beach and we absolutely loved the snorkeling at Pu’uhonua o Honaunau (the way we’ve described it so far is like being dropped in the middle of an aquarium). The coolers that you had were a lifesaver when it came to packing lunches and taking them with us each day. Our last day on the Big Island some of us went on the Manta Ray night dive (which they highly recommend).Thank you again for the use of your house!
