                                I had been to the big island multiple times prior to this trip. What was special about this one was the fact that my family traveled from the Midwest for the holidays to visit Hawaii. Our stay was too short to say the least. Awesome house! I recommend it to anyone who wants to spend most of their time relaxing and not go anywhere. The location is awesome and there are plenty of adventures to be had by just walking around the area. It is just such an amazing house and location, I wish I could go back and stay 5 days and not leave the area. Thanks Delton, you were an amazing host and very helpful! If you are planning a trip to Big Island....stay HERE!!!

                                For the price and location this property rental can be great for some. For me and my family it was a bit too rural for our tastes. I should have read thru the previous reviews more carefully, but honestly for only a one-night stay it was ok just because of it's location close-by the lava hike with Kalapana Cultural Tours. If you stay at this home you will be sharing the place with lizards - they are all over the place. The pictures on the website are definitely of the property, but taken when the place was in pristine condition. There are tears in the sofas, dated appliances in the kitchen, and the bathroom we used did not have a showerhead - just the pipe shooting a stream of water out of the wall. The opening to the attic was not covered and I can only imagine the lizards up there. Also, the home did not have air conditioning and was quite hot in the daytime even with all the windows open. The loud noise of the tree frogs at night was also surprising. I did really appreciate the owner and property manager's allowing us early check-in and late check-out per our request. They were very accommodating and that was really appreciated. If you don't mind rustic living I think you will feel comfortable and enjoy your stay at this property.

                                We found this home to be charming, as well as the owner. This home is not for everyone. It is rural and holds true to this description. The home is outfitted with all you would need to be comfortable, dishwasher, washer, dryer, etc. Just bring food and clothes. There is not much to do without driving at least 20 - 40 miles. There is no beach access w/o walking through a very dense path on someone else's property. But the view of the lava field and ocean is worth the trek. There is a warm pool up the road about 15 miles and worth the trip. Other than that you need to go up to the Volcano or back to Hilo for resturants or activities. If you're looking for a rural setting and want to read and walk this might be what your looking for.

                                Our staff at this location was less than 1 hour. We arrived to find the place filthy. Uncleaned restrooms, garbage on the stairs, huge roaches, unclean kitchen with dirty appliances, refrigerator was unplugged and must have been for some time because the smell was awful. bird poop on the walls, and the smell of urine in the couch. We had NO phone service in the home. The owner is a very kind man and immediately offered to reimburse our stay. This place needs replaced furniture and a complete and total professional deep cleaning before renting to anyone else

                                Manager response: Unfortunately the property manager did not meet the guests and they went to the wrong house. At Hale Lalala we maintain a high standard of cleanliness and do everything we can to make sure guests have a delightful visit to Kalapana and Big Island Hawai'i. The manager has been replaced and the owner committed to overseeing the greeting and welcoming of guests.

                                I let out a sigh of relief as I pull up to Dwight's property, pausing to breathe in fresh air and marvel at the exotic landscape. The space has all the amenities I need: a clean space big enough for yoga, a quaint balcony, cozy kitchen, comfy beds and hot showers. I feel at home in such a lush and natural environment. The ocean is 'oh-sooooooo-close' and Puna's happening black sand beach and warm pools are a short drive away. I explore other areas of the island including Kona's famous snorkeling beaches where dolphins and turtles are common, Waipio valley in the north, Green Sand beach in the south, sustainable, off grid farms like La Akea Permaculture Community, I realize the rental is in the PERFECT location for my taste. Be sure to visit the nearby Saturday Space market in Seaside which is rich with organic, colorful exotic fruits, raw superfood creations, local honey, and organic prepared foods. Santos sells falafels wraps made from scratch that are out of this world. The market is a wonderful place to talk to locals and get to know the area.

                                (stayed 8 nights / December 2012) The house has a very warm energy and had everything we needed. Hale La La La welcomed me with a slice of what it would be like if I already had my Hawaiian dream home. If you’re looking for a sterile-modern style rental with sharp edges, this hale isn’t for you. I recommend this hale if you’re into open spaces, love to be surrounded with lots of greenery, fresh fruit, and enjoy the sounds of nature. There are lemon and orange trees bearing delicious fruits. There are two wonderful cats that guard the house (they stay outside). Remember to thank them! Hale LA LA LA is fully furnished and the kitchen has a great breakfast nook. Of course you can also enjoy morning/afternoon/night on the huge deck outside. We were out there much of the time; eating, sunning or just hanging out in between activities. The hale has plenty of linens, towels and bedding, as well as a great washer/dryer. I loved the outdoor shower and third bathroom downstairs. There is a sun room with great windows that flood the room with light, without getting too hot (as wonderfully paradoxical as the Big Island itself). A magnificent spot for painting, reading, yoga, and napping. There is a modest TV there as well with a VCR and DVD player (combo). You may want to bring your own DVDs to round out your options, but there is a selection of movies there if your forget. The homeowner lives very nearby and was there for us if we had any questions. He even gave us a lift from the airport! Ask the owner (Dwight) about renting a car for your stay. It was extremely handy, and very reasonably priced! Long story short, I loved the hale, location, vibe, and the lovely well-tended heated watsu pool (just two doors down). This pool is absolutely fabulous to relax in after a long day of sun and fun as well as get a Watsu massage! I would recommend this hale to my friends and plan on returning again. Enjoy!

                                I rented Hale Lalala to offer myself some retreat time in Kalapana. The place is very well situated closed to nature, to the sole convenience store in Kalapana (Uncle Robert's is within walking distance) and nestled in a very private area and quite sunny micro-climate. The house is large, well-furbished, and very welcoming. The whole atmosphere was conducive for my writing project. For breaks, Aqua-yoga classes were held close-by, and Kalani is a short drive up the road. I also brought my own cycle and biked everywhere I needed to: markets, beaches, or just for exercise on the "Red road", one of best biking roads in Hawaii. I am already looking forward to going back!

                                "Wonderful Place!" We had a wonderful stay at Hale Lalala! The house is very large and comfortable with a great kitchen that has a large deck attached - a perfect place to enjoy a sunny breakfast. You can pick oranges right off the tree. The rooms are spacious and the furnishings quite nice. The owner is friendly and very helpful. The location could not have been better. You have easy access to the main highway to Pahoa and Hilo, you're very near the amazing painted church and the black sand beach - and just down the road is Uncle Robert's where there's a convenience store and Friday night gatherings with native music, great food and a large, friendly crowd. There's an easy stroll that crosses the lava field and takes you right down to the ocean where the panoramic views are spectacular. This remote part of the island is not for everyone, but for those seeking escape from the world of condominiums, boutiques and modern hotels, Hale Lalala provides a perfect resting place to explore the real Hawaii.

                                We stayed at the Hale Lalala for 4 days. It was an exceptionally relaxing and enjoyable time. Dwight made us feel at home and very comfortable. Short walk down private road to the old lava flow with ocean views and the bonfire pit and a short drive to the hot ponds and beach access. We would receommend staying here to all of our families and friends and would stay again ourselves.

                                Recommended for: Girls getaway, families with young children, families with teenagers, adventure seekers, romantic getaway, age 55+, sightseeing.
