Just about perfect getaway
"We stayed 8 days and had a wonderful time. The house easily accommodated our party of 15 and worked great for all ages (1-year-old baby to 69 year-old grandpa). We found the entire house very clean when we arrived and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen has a good stove, refrigerator and dishwasher and is arranged so it is easy to work in. The center island is large and makes a good place for serving. There are lots and lots of pot and pans, bowls, utensils, plates, etc.
When we were there there were several boxes of snorkeling equipment, kids beach toys and a couple of kayaks all of which we made use of.
The big lanai off the living room/kitchen is especially inviting and we spent a lot of time there relaxing, talking, eating and playing games. The yard is large and lovely with lots of beautiful flowers and coconut and papaya trees. The house feels secluded even though there are several houses nearby. All the foliage blocks the other houses.
It is close to the ocean and there are areas within a couple of minutes easy walk that are safe and interesting for babies, children and adults. We saw spinner dolphins in the morning, snorkeled and kayaked later in the day. The tide pools at Manini Beach are fascinating.
We found the owner and manager both to be easy to work with and quick to respond to emails.
We would recommend it and would love to go back ourselves."

"The Hale Lana studio provided everything we could want: a peaceful and very comfortable space, indoor/outdoor living, ample cooking equipment, extra towels, washer, clothesline, beach chairs, boogie board, directions to local sites, and a fabulous outdoor shower! Easy walks to nearby beaches. The snorkeling at Captain Cook Monument and Two Step is spectacular. Look at the spinner dolphins in the bay, but please don't touch."

"What a wonderful spot. You can hang out at the pool all day or do all the touristy stuff there is to do. Still can't get over the change in flora and fona in such a short distance, it was amazing. Candi was very helpful with everything from where to go to the beach to where to get band aids. Captain Cook is such a nice place, and the people were all very nice. I love the big island and am looking forward to coming back"

"The view from this house during our stay was by far the best memory from our stay on the Big Island. Kayaking across to the Captain Cook Monument, snorkeling right off the rocks and playing in the tidepools with our young twins were just several of the many activities that we enjoyed. The neighborhood is quiet and everyone is very friendly. The house even includes a nice lawn to play on. The only drawback I can think of for the house is the drive from the main highway to the house itself which takes about 10 minutes each way (which isn't very much if you think about it). Once you get to the house and you see the sea right there, it makes it all worthwhile. Thank you to the owners and the rental agency, everyone was great and our family enjoyed our time at this amazing oceanfront home. Mahalo."
