  • Amazing...

    "This property is easily one of the best places we've ever stayed in any location. You get all the luxury of a 5-star resort and you don't have to share it with anyone! No one to interrupt your sleep or get in the way of your views. Just 5 acres of privacy. You don't even get the well-known Hawaiian rooster noise...just some wild goats below you. It was very easy to book with Dennis and he made us feel welcomed in his home. The amenities are great and the washer/dryer much-appreciated after 2 weeks in Hawaii. Really easy to get to Volcanoes National Park (no traffic in that direction) and there are some great restaurants within a 20-30 minute drive. We would absolutely rent this property again."

  • Beautiful house and convenient location

    "The house is beautiful, spacious, and has everything you need; the large garden is a wonder for kids to explore. We were only 6, but 10 people can be very comfortable here. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a blender for making tasty smoothies. We benefited from the snorkel gear, towels, boogie board, coolers, and even clothed for cooler weather (which you'll need if you go to Mauna Kea). We stayed 7 days and were sad to leave. Marci and Chuck were very helpful to us when we needed them, plus they had fruit and coffee for us on arrival. I liked the closeness to Honaunau for picnic and sunset and 2 step for snorkeling. The house is very close to a wonderful fruit stand (at mile 103-104 on hwy 11), and if you want to explore Kohala and the south part of the island, all from one location, this will be a great place to stay."

  • Romantic setting

    "We spent seven nights at the Makalani Oceanview, and it was the best getaway we could possibly ask for. When we first pulled into the driveway, it was breathtaking. You're instantly transported into a rainforest/garden, leading you up to the cottage and an amazing view of the ocean. The photos don't do the cottage justice, it is the ultimate place to unwind and reconnect. Harry is a gracious host, giving out as much information as you could want, and yet unobtrusive. The remoteness of the location is ideal if you are truly wanting to get away. No crowds, no noise, no hassles, yet only about 30 minutes from Kona. We look forward to staying here again. Thank you Harry!"

  • Excellent for Divers and Snorkelers!

    "My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights as part of a 3-1/2 week xmas vacation. Cottage is clean and comfortable with all the kitchen basics. There is a charcoal BBQ outside which we didn’t get a chance to use. Also have a convenient outside area for rinsing and hanging dive equipment. Appreciated the seclusion and quiet - very good choice if you aren’t into the touristy scene. Hosts Garry and Susan are lovely! Enjoyed 3 dives at Honaunau Bay with Garry who was kind enough to lend me some gear as well as the advertised weights and air. Garry is a cautious and conservative diver so, as an infrequent diver, I felt very safe with him as guide. Saw tons of fish, a few turtles, heard the whales calling and was introduced to the local reef shark. This place is a terrific deal especially for scuba divers - would love to stay again. The hosts made it cosy and welcoming. Chatting with them and diving with Gary was a spectacular added bonus to the stay."
