  • Home away from home

    "This is the ideal house if you are in search of a getaway from tourists. It is cozy, inviting, and a perfect retreat on the East side of the Big Island. The description and pictures are dead-on. Access to snorkeling and tranquility is a stone's throw from the house."

  • Big Island First Timers

    "My wife and I stayed a week and used the Hale Moana Uli as our home base. We did a lot of exploring from Green sands beach to the top of Mouna Kea. The home was well appointed and would comfortably accommodate 3 couples. All of our needs were more than met. The view each morning from the upstairs lanai was amazing. We would have our coffee and breakfast and even take in some morning sun from there. The property itself is a bit rugged. We sort of carved our own path down to Beach Rd. and joined folks walking and hiking along the coast. It was quite nice. My biggest concern was the gas grill. The igniter did not work and running the gas and tossing in matches is not the safest way to go. Jeana was great and there were no issues with booking and payment. Would highly recommend and we would love to return and do some more exploring."

    "We appreciated Becky sharing her home with us! It was truly a "home away from home". We were able to do so much at HVNP because we were only 4 miles away. We did all the Day Hikes that the NP recommends and some extras. We enjoyed the Kilauea Iki Trail the most, including the Lava Tube. The most challenging was the Hilina Pali Trail to Ka'aha. It was easy to see the glowing caldera in the Kilauea Crater at night with such a short trip back to "home". The kitchen is large and easy to use, so much storage area. We enjoyed the grill and having a washer & dryer convenient to use. The rooms are all separate enough to accommodate other couples or two or more families (four separate bedrooms). Everything worked out very well! We'd stay here again and recommend it to others!"

  • Hawaiian Paradise!

    "We stayed at Rosie's Retreat from February 1st to 14th. Fell in love with it upon arrival! Rosie is the sweetest person you will ever meet! Greeted with big hugs, we felt right at home from the minute we arrived. Words cannot explain how beautiful the cottage is! Set in the middle of the Hawaiian jungle, you have luxuries such as an outdoor shower, multiple ceiling fans, well equipped kitchen, movies, books, beach chairs, and a really comfortable king sized bed, to name a few! Rosie even supplies the best tour book you will ever find on the Big Island of Hawaii and she would come every week with fresh towels and sheets. The cottage is very well maintained and clean. The location, we found perfect - only 1 mile from the Kapoho Tidal Pools, close to the warm pond, and the drive down Hwy 137 will bring you to so many breathtaking sites, and then right out to the new black sand beach. If you are more adventurous, travel north on 137 and hike down the trail by the big old truck & find the lava swimming pool! Amazing snorkeling - but go when the surf is not too high. It is off to your left at the end of the trail (around the first lava ridge to your left). We couldn't imagine staying any where else on the island. Kapoho is in a little banana belt of the Puna side of the island and our weather was phenomenal! Should you be considering booking this beautiful little cottage, you won't regret it! We loved every minute we were there!"
