Clean, well equipped & 30 second walk to Manini Beach
"Our family had an amazing stay at the Dolphin house. The caretaker was so thoughtful meeting us there later at night. The house had everything we needed & more - snorkel equipment, water shoes, boogie boards, etc ! The 30 second walk to Manini beach was so convenient and the water clear with awesome snorkeling. The "auntie" caretaker at the beach was so nice and full of stories! We found that we did have to drive further than expected when we had other activities that we needed to get to but this does not seem too unusual for the Big Island."

"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!"

"This place is as described and more. The bounty of fresh fruit we had was practically embarrassing - white pineapple, mango, papaya, bananas... we made sumptuous smoothies each day from orchards we were delighted to stroll. It was perfectly located for our main interests - a trip to the volcanic national park and snorkeling. The rental is well-appointed with thoughtful touches everywhere including a binder with incredible maps and details for restaurants, beaches, shopping, sight-seeing, etc. The outdoor shower is heaven. The bed was comfy. The hosts were marvelous. Though we never really saw them except for check in, they were responsive and quick to share MORE fruit as well as good vibes and advice throughout our stay. Aloha Spirit was spotless, quiet, secluded and well, perfect. We would definitely stay again (and wish were still there now!)"

"We stayed for 9 days at this little piece of heaven cottage on the cliff side. It was about 20 miles south of Kona. There are several grocery stores nearby as well as gas stations, coffee cafes and restaurants. The hosts provide lawn chairs, snorkel equipment, boogie board and lunch cooler which is very convenient for road trips or beach days. Step 2 beach is a 15 minute drive away for great snorkeling. The cottage has a full kitchen with a great countertop for eating, ceiling fans for circulating the beautiful breezes and enough seclusion on the property for adequate privacy. The morning visits from the hosts' dogs were lovely, very calm pets. Enjoy the ocean views and the beautiful tropical foliage from the attached tiki deck. Everyone will love this little gem and we look forward to another visit."
