the Loose Moose Gang from Alberta, Canada
"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."

"My husband and I stayed at this beautiful, clean and very well equipped home in March of 2015. We were there to
celebrate our 46th Anniversary. We had an amazing time in Kona (our first time there). The home was more than
homey and comfortable, the king size bed was so comfy, being able to smoke on the lanai made it easier than
having to leave the property. We did spend most to our time on the lanai, enjoying the birds and the garden.
Ask Barb for a tour of her garden, she has some unusual and beautiful plants.
We did have a problem finding the place the night we arrived, it is so dark in Hawaii at night and the street
signs need some updating, so use google map, or a GPS if you arrive at night, and are old like us. Ask Bruce for
information on Captain Cook Trading for excellent discounts on MAC nuts and KONA coffee. We would love to
go again next year, or sooner."

"Our group could not have picked a better house in Kona for our stay. The house is perfectly situated on the mountain overlooking the ocean. There is a constant breeze through the house at all hours of the day. I believe we ate every meal on the porch overlooking the ocean and sunset. The pool and hot tub are amazing additions to an already perfect house. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!"

"First of all, the view was outstanding! We had all kinds of beach gear and kayaks to use...including directions on how to put the kayaks securely on top of the rental car! We were close to snorkeling, coffee and chocolate plantations, good restaurants and downtown Kona browsing. After a day of exploring, it was nice to come back to the privacy of our unit and relax in the refreshing pool. We look forward to returning!"
