Amazing & Centrally Located
"We first stayed here in 2012 and fell in love with the Big Island. Returning three years later the house was just as amazing as I had remembered. The view is indescribable and the house is very clean with all of the necessary amenities. It's also located in a very convenient part of the island. Close enough to Kona to grab dinner but remote enough that you don't feel like you are stuck in a tourist trap.
I would highly recommend this house to anyone that is interested. We hope to come back again soon."

"This was a last minute booking for us, and host was very helpful. Cottage was very clean, and really well decorated. Bed was comfortable, and great location to start our trips. Great place for a couple!"

"I can't imagine that you would ever find a better rental at this price. A short walk to the bay, short drive to Two Steps. A great location to explore this part of the island. I know for certain that you won't find a more accommodating, kind, generous host than Kay at any price!! Your cookies are incredible. The thanks so much for letting us stay."

Twist my arm... I want to keep this hide-away for myself!
"We would like to express our gratitude for the opportunity to have spent a week at Maka Nui, an absolutely beautiful, private haven in paradise. The photos and description of said property, found on the VRBO website, were spot-on, but, this impressively decorated, comfortable home, offered so much more in person and we felt beyond "spoiled" (a word said often when speaking of this property) by all the amenities - both inside and outside, it provided.
The estate and surrounding property is very well-managed and maintained by Candi and her staff. We found her to be genuinely welcoming, never intrusive and always supportive to our needs. We will wholeheartedly recommend this lovely home to our family, to friends, and to whomever will listen!
Although our vacation has ended, we are already longing to return to the serene foothills of Mauna Loa and the vacation home that is Maka Nui.
