                                We stayed at the Pineapple Express for 10 days and we LOVED every minute of our time at the house. The size of the home was perfect for the two of us, with just enough space for everything we needed/wanted to do. They have everything you need from cookware, to beach gear. We packed the beach chairs and snorkel gear with us in the car every day! The neighborhood is very quiet and private, which made our vacation very pleasurable. The beach below the home, Honomalino Bay was by far the most relaxing, private beach we've been to. It's a bit of a hike into the beach, but definitely well worth all the work. I'd recommend packing a cooler/lunch/chairs/snorkel gear with you so you can enjoy it all day like we did! The hot tub was another treat after a long day at the beach/in the sun. We cooked many of our meals at home, which was a great option for us instead of driving the hour into Kailua-Kona for dinner every night. We shopped at Costco when we arrived on the island and stopped at Safeway for everything else we needed. We ate breakfast every morning on the lanai, overlooking the ocean. The only thing I'd complain about was the mosquitos, but with some bug spray and the citronella candle on the table outside you should be fine. We truly enjoyed every second we spent here and when we return to the Big Island, I hope we can return to the Pineapple Express! Thank you for everything, it was perfect!

                                We loved the Pineapple Express Cottage. The facilities had everything we wanted (hot tub, gas grill, full kitchen, ceiling fans, cable TV and internet) and was far enough away from the heavy tourist areas to provide a slow paced, quiet atmosphere. Yet it was only a short drive to some nice public beaches and about 50-minutes to Volcano NP. The sunsets from the porch every evening were a real treat. You can't go wrong with this rental.

                                Thank you for the best VRBO that we have ever stayed in! It reminded us of our bungalow in SLC, UT. Sooo cute with the personal touches and perfectly stocked for all our away from home needs. We especially appreciated the washer and dryer, and the gracious fresh pineapple was a delicious staple at The Pineapple Express-Mahalo!! Bear is super adorable and reminded us of our dog Luke AKA "the rug" as Bear would roll out and "chill" anywhere. We enjoyed talking about Milolii with the locals and appreciated that The Pineapple Express was between "here and there" on the island (and out of TSUNAMI evacuation area). We will recommend this to anyone visiting the island and count on us visiting again soon. Thanks again for accommodating us on our "surprise honeymoon"!! MAHALO

                                This was a last minute trip for my husband and I and we were so pleased we chose your home. The views on the drive from Kona to the house are absolutely amazing. It was so nice to be away from the crowds of Kona. The home was very peaceful and relaxing and it had everything we needed. We were blown away by the isolation and quiet being up on the hill, so much better than the resort scene. The home is really nice and clean. We loved all the foliage around the home that keeps it so private. We loved the hike out to the beach down below. We had the beach to ourselves and we saw dolphins!! The spa was wonderful after a day of exploring. Bear's visits kept us from missing our dog at home. He is such a sweet dog. The owners were quick to respond with any questions we had during our stay. We will definitely return one day and recommend this home to our friends and family. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

                                We spent 3 nights enjoying the hot tub, the views, and the quiet away from Kona. Because of your recommendations and others in the guest book, we visited Honomalino Beach. It was beautiful and we were the only ones there. I would recommend to others to read the coffee table book "Hawaii-The Big Island Revealed" for directions to the beach since they are very specific. Once you get there it's more than worth the hike! The book was also helpful in choosing restaurants and other activities. Thanks again and say goodbye to our breakfast buddy (Bear) for us!

                              Year Purchased: 2004

                              About the owner: Our names are Marsal & Albert. We moved to Hawaii in 2005 from Northern California. We are in property management and real estate. We have tried to explore the island as much as possible, and share our island experiences with our guests. We love to explore and try new adventures.

                              Why the Owner Chose Milolii:
                              After coming to the Big Island several times,and looking at many areas, we decided we loved the climate of our area and the breathtaking views. Almost always sunny and not nearly the amount of humidity as other parts of the island. Plus, the nightly breezes made it very comfortable.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              We like the location of our place because it is out of the hustle and bustle of city life and close to many great beaches and attractions. It is ideal if you would like to explore the island. You can choose to go to Hilo or Kona for the day. The ocean view is awesome. You can see to Kona and sometimes Maui. The seclusion and tranquility is wonderful. The sunsets are unforgetable and the stars are epic.
