"The location of this condo is ideal. Directly across the street from a beautiful beach(note waves can be a bit aggressive) and very close to town as well as more moderate priced dining and grocery.
The kitchen is very well stocked with all you would ever need, plus a few remnants of dry and cold items. The added bonus of a few coolers, snorkeling items and many beach towels was wonderful.
The décor is lovely, with a large patio and functional condo lay out.
Unfortunately we did not find the space to be very "comfortable". The mattresses throughout were not great. As an example in the master due to think egg crate on top we were not able to sleep near one another- you were pulled to the outside of the bed. As well the couches although adorable, were really stiff and scratchy. Although you do not go to Kona to hang out in bed or a living room it was kind of a bummer after a day exploring or swimming to not be able to relax.
Also, as an aside I was disappointed to find a sign attached to dryer saying it was not working. I encouraged limited packing and trying to dry clothing in the damp weather was a bit frustrating."

"My three sister and I stay in this beautiful condo in Kona for 9 night. I can say without a doubt this is a beautiful condo next to a beautiful white sand beach, and it is an easy convenient location. You have to remember on the big Island doesn't have a lot of nice sand beach, so to be able to just walk to the beach it is pretty amazing!!!! We love to be near the beach and of course the best location for the price."

"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."
