"This will be our 3rd or 4th time renting Hale o Lei. Arrived from Oahu for a family reunion at Honauanu. Very convenient and comfortable house. All the comforts of home! Visited other vacation homes in the area and found Hale O Lei to be well equipped with ceiling fans during this hot summer weather. My cousins who rented in the area complained that their vacation house was not as cool as this house! Great open lanai area with privacy. Will definitely rent again! Owners very friendly!"

"My husband and I stayed 3 days to celebrate our anniversary.
We live on the other side of the Big Island so it was an easy trip.
The fruit was amazing. The biggest mango I have ever seen.
Very, very clean place. Everything was there to meet our needs.
Tony was a generous and kind host.
Thanks so much with providing us a beautiful home away from home."

"This was the perfect place for us! We started our two week vacation here to celebrate our 30th anniversary, stayed 4 nights then moved on to the Kohala Coast at the resorts, which is what we have been used to... love it of course, especially the Mauna Kea where we started together and are currently closing this adventure. We are so thankful that we decided to do something a little different, and we loved our choice and hope to come back soon!
We are also vacation rental owners so we appreciate all the attention to detail and professionalism from Dennis. The decor is so tasteful and modern, yet cozy and comfortable! Communication was perfect. We stayed in the downstairs studio... it was amazing to wake up and see the lush surroundings from three views! The only heads up is that A/C does not exist is "real" Hawaii, but you will hopefully adjust after everything is opened up with both ceiling fans on. We loved the outdoor shower like others have mentioned, used the snorkel gear (just have to rent fins in town - we got them at Pineapple for $5/day), used the ice chest provided (mini fridge only in the studio, gotta keep the beer super cold!) and beach chairs too. Get ice before you go down Napo'opo'o Rd upon arrival - there's nothing after that, you can get it at the Chevron station before the turn down the mountain. Plan to get ice daily. The Choice Market on the highway has the best seasoned chicken that we cooked on the provided BBQ - YUM! We also found the "hole in the wall" Sandy's Drive Thru (not really a drive thru and a tip from a local) really good for breakfast, best deal @ $4.95! Yep, Annie's Burgers is great! The drive / roads at first may seem a bit intimidating, but you get used to it fast!
Manini Beach is awesome, loved talking to Auntie Sandy and Ed (the shell guy) at the bay. The locals have basically grown up in this village and we felt more than welcomed, safe and embraced! We kayaked and saw lots of dolphins (my favorites!) in the bay, then got a tip that the dolphins were going crazy at 2 Step (5-10 min drive), so off we went - AMAZING, such a dream!! The next day too!!
Bottom line = AWESOME MEMORIES!!!! Thank you Dennis!!"

"It is paradise for me, the Place where I can relax, enjoy myself and get powerful. I´s really like heaven. After a 30 hours flight from Germany, I come to Big Island, to this beautyful house, and I feel at home at once. The same happens every time I bring friends with me. The rooms are comfortable and really beautyful equipped. You can find Hawaiian pictures and lamps inside. The house has a warm and positive energy. It is big and bright. You evenn have enouth place to dance. Everything you might need for preparing food is in the kitchen. Nothing that missing. There is a big barbecue on the garden terrace. You can sit here and take a long good breakfast and connect to the wonderful nature around you. You have a breath-taking view to the Pacific Ocean from the front terrace and also from the upper bedroom. Sometimes you can even see dolphins in front of the house, as they dance and jump in the air. Here, it is possible to swim with them and feel their warm heart-opening and light energy. I love doing it. The position of the house is wonderful, central and calm. It is ideal to make day trips in any directions on the island., either Mouna kea, Southpoint, Volcano Park, Botanic Garden, everything is possible. Restaurants and shopping facilities are within short reach. Near the house, you can find Manini Beach. Small but very beautyful. You can meet interesting people there and go snorkelling. At night, I listen to the melody of the ocean and believe to be at the most beautyful place on earth. I will always liove to return here, experience new things and be connected with the nature. Love Martina Selina."
