"The view from this house during our stay was by far the best memory from our stay on the Big Island. Kayaking across to the Captain Cook Monument, snorkeling right off the rocks and playing in the tidepools with our young twins were just several of the many activities that we enjoyed. The neighborhood is quiet and everyone is very friendly. The house even includes a nice lawn to play on. The only drawback I can think of for the house is the drive from the main highway to the house itself which takes about 10 minutes each way (which isn't very much if you think about it). Once you get to the house and you see the sea right there, it makes it all worthwhile. Thank you to the owners and the rental agency, everyone was great and our family enjoyed our time at this amazing oceanfront home. Mahalo."

"Delightful hosts, Tony and Stacey were welcoming and helpful. Tons of fresh fruit that we ate at almost every meal. Tony gave us some great tips on site seeing in the area.
The house has great access to the highway as well as being very close to wonderful snorkeling at two-step. We also were able to take a short drive over to the trail head that leads to Captain Cook's memorial (which we would highly recommend). One night we took a very short drive over to the Sheraton for an excellent sunset meal. Kailua Kona is also very close by, but far enough away that you are in a much more secluded and calm environment.
The outdoor shower was amazing. Very private and excellent setting among the plants. At night it was also great since they have some really nice lighting set up for it.
Property was very clean and well maintained. Appliances were good and we were able to do almost all of our own cooking.
We would definitely recommend this property to our friends. It's especially good if you love the outdoors and being close to nature."

"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!"

"We spent four glorious weeks in Jill's darling, cute, well appointed cottage that had everything we wanted. One exception was the minimal Satellite TV options. We would have preferred a full cable set up/programming. Not a huge deal. The bedrooms were lovely. There were small AC units in there to cool them before sleeping. The yard was full of a huge variety of wonderful Hawaiian fruit. It was so much fun picking our fruit from the trees as needed. There is a lovely outdoor shower that was a pleasure for both washing off sand and cooling down. Jill and James were fun and accommodating. We are swimmers and spent most days in one of the two glorious bays nearby. We swam with the Spinner dolphin many times. Each time felt like a blessing. Truly amazing! In short we loved every minute and are hard at work figuring out how to return in 2015. You will not be disappointed, but you will be spoiled. Stay at your own risk! :)"
