  • Spacious, Restful, Convenient

    "This lovely cottage-like home was perfect place for our family of five to spend a week. We felt at home as soon as we entered and, while the house had every conceivable convenience and thoughtful detail, it was still homey and comfortable. We ate all our meals and spent much lounging time outdoors in the large front lanai or spacious back yard. The kitchen was very well equipped, including a coffee grinder and mixer. We also were able to use the snorkel gear and boogie board that are available. Bird song and gentle surf are the music you hear as the occasional mongoose scampers through the yard. Each morning and evening we took our coffee or cocktails the 3 minute walk to watch spinner dolphins in the Bay. You can swim there or walk 5 min or so to gentle Manini Beach. The drive to Captain Cook for groceries and other services is about 20-30 minutes and it is a short drive to the Pu'uhonua o Honaunau (Place of Refuge) and spectacular snorkeling at "Two Step" and to the beach at Ho'okena."

  • Kick Back by K Bay

    "The Hale Lana studio provided everything we could want: a peaceful and very comfortable space, indoor/outdoor living, ample cooking equipment, extra towels, washer, clothesline, beach chairs, boogie board, directions to local sites, and a fabulous outdoor shower! Easy walks to nearby beaches. The snorkeling at Captain Cook Monument and Two Step is spectacular. Look at the spinner dolphins in the bay, but please don't touch."

  • Wonderful spot!

    "All the previous commenters have described this cottage well: beautiful location, easy access to everywhere, and helpful, friendly host. If we are lucky enough to visit the Big Island again, we will arrange our travel schedule to be able to stay here. Charles describes this cottage as "close but far..." and this says it all. It's far from crowds, busy roads, etc., but close to the bay, close to town, and its easy to get anywhere from here. We appreciated the chance to relax on the large lanai and watch the birds, the ocean, and the sunsets. The kitchen was well appointed and we were able to cook meals regularly. We very much appreciated Charles' willingness to let us leave late on our departure day, as nobody was scheduled to come in immediately. We would definitely love to have the opportunity to return!"

  • A Slice of Heaven in Hawaii at the Hardrock Gardens

    "My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the darling Honeymoon cottage. We loved listening to the sounds of birds and frogs and other critters on the property. The cottage is fully equipped and even has WIFI! Our hosts, Vika & Mike were more than hospitable. I especially loved their three dogs: Rascal, Lolly & Mana. The location is very scenic, quiet and away from the town. However, it is close to many lovely attractions ( Painted Church, Kealalekua Bay) as well as restaurants and other services. A slice of Heaven to which we will be returning!"
