Welcoming arbor+ real Hawaiian experience+ real relaxation= immersion in a true Hawaiian vacation
"I've been to Hawaii before. Staying in the insulated boxes of the Sheraton/big box hotels and having a very tourist type experience that was bland and fake feeling.
But staying at a home, with all the things I needed, right in the middle of the local scene was a real Hawaiian vacation. I felt more connected with my vacation and relaxed far more than in any hotel. This home is close enough to run into town and do shopping and be a tourist or better yet.... follow the locals every morning as they walk past your porch to swim with dolphins at the Captain Cook Cove (Kealalekua Bay) and local park.
I loved being among the locals; feeling connected to the land and sea and felt less like a tourist in this home and more at home and at ease. It was wonderful..it is the only way I will vacation from now on and it was very hard to leave!!
The home has all you need, just grab food. It has plenty of room for all and the view was wonderful and special. My 16 yr old spent his time on the top floor observation deck and that is the best place to take a nap!! The sunsets up top were amazing, BBQ in the sweet shady backyard and then have dinner with the sun and sea at your fingertips from the top deck.
Stroll across the street and snorkel your heart out, walk home and enjoy the huge double shower to get the sand off and at your fingertips are the washer and dryer and sink to keep your suits clean and sand free. I found this to be so much nicer than having to worry about washing things off in a hotel room.
This is a very special home to vacation in and the location was wonderful.
Ill be going back as soon as I can."

"This is a great place to stay on the Kona side. We loved having our own cabins, and the kitchen was a great place to take in the view. The owners have provided everything you could possibly think of needing...right down to the aloe I needed after my sunburn! The kitchen and rooms are well-equipped, exceptionally clean, airy, and very restful. If you stay here, be sure to go to Gypsea Gelato for the best gelato EVER, and also check out Annie's Burgers (I'm a vegetarian, and the taro burger was awesome!). This location offers peace and privacy, plenty of space, a great view, and everything you could need. I highly recommend them!"

"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."
