"I chose Hale Malihini as the perfect home to spend a family vacation in based on the location and pictures provided on VRBO. I was not disappointed. From the moment I showed an interest in securing the house for our family of 9, Ben was in contact with me and assured me of what to expect from a personal description of the home, to the area it was located in, and the finances. We were delighted to be so near White Sands Beach, as it became the first destination each morning for our one year old grandson, as well as the two teen grandchildren who loved to snorkel. We enjoyed exploring the entire island by day and were able to be back home in time for supper and the sunset. All of our rooms were comfortable and well appointed. We were especially grateful for the assortment of beach equipment including chairs, umbrellas, coolers, and water toys. We could not have survived our beach visits without them. We were able to take in the markets, coffee shops, and luau in town with just a 10 minute drive down Alii Drive. Our host was available and helpful from start to finish. Thank-you for a wonderful 3 week stay in your beautiful home, Jan and Ben. Mahalo."

"This is the 5th time we have stayed here and we can't stop coming back - the house contains everything that we could want, is well maintained and is in a great location if you want to sit back and chill and not too far out of town if you want an evening out.
We stayed here for 10 nights in October - it was a holiday with a spell of volunteering at the Kona Ironman and staying here let us not have to worry about getting up late after a long day at the Ironman to let the cleaners in!!
We made full use of all the beach gear and, knowing there was a washer and dryer, this lets us pack light so that we had room in the cases to take the great Kona coffee home.
We will be back without a doubt - thanks Charlotte."

"Three couples spent a week here celebrating 45 and 35 year wedding anniversaries. The house is as pictured, with comfortable furnishings and a wonderful lanai with a shade. Beach access is available very close by, so those who wanted to swim in front of the house could do so. We needed the air conditioning as the weather was very hot and humid and were pleased to have it available. We had a problem with the clothes dryer and the gate, and Dave came over immediately to fix them.
The only reason I did not give the house 5 stars is that one of our party has allergies to cat dander and to mold/mildew and he had a very difficult time while we were in this house.
Overall, the house met my expectations, and we had a wonderful week on the Big Island."

"We have stayed here a few times; we love it enough clearly to keep coming back. A quiet, quaint place that is up the hill and away from the Ironman Hawaii craziness. The sounds at night lull us to sleep. We enjoy cool mornings on the lanai as well as dinners and watch the sun set. The pool is beautiful and the slightly cooler temps very refreshing on hot days. The owners are friendly, responsive and accommodating. Can't say enough about this rental; though I should keep my mouth shut so that it's available next time we're seeking it out! :)"
