  • Off the beaten path paradise!

    "WOW! Absolute paradise. LOVE IT! The House is very spacious and very clean. You enter through a combination gate that feels private and secure. Master bedroom has a queen bed that is very comfortable. Spacious room with a great ocean view. Master bath is very big and we loved the shower with the ocean view. Lots of hot water and good water pressure. Two other queen bedrooms in the back of the house that share a bathroom. Smaller than the master but nice. Kitchen was well stocked with everything you need including paper towels, spices, oil, water. Another spot that has a great ocean view. Nice big lanai, with a great view of the ocean and very peaceful to read and relax. Fantastic pool with ocean view. Just missing a spa, then it would be perfect! Water temperature is perfect and we used it everyday. It gets the sun in the mornings and that was a perfect time for a dip. BBQ is in the pool house in case it rains (which it did everyday briefly), worked perfectly. Two hard tail MTB (rockhoopers). Extra tubes, spoons, helmets and gloves available. Great for exploring! We road down to the tide pools, about 12 miles round trip. Great bikes and much appreciated. Gravel road coming in from both directions. When we arrived there were so many potholes we thought we may have to turn around. On day #4 they actually filled in those potholes and put down new gravel. Much better! The drive out through the mango grooves is beautiful. Continue on to Kalapana, spectacular! (better than the drive to Hana). The neighbors (who we hardly saw) and rags were awesome. Love that dog. So much so we googgled a golden doodle to check them out to see where we could get one back home. Very friendly and very nice having a dog around in the middle of nowhere. At night it got to be very dark and a little scary on the first night with strange noises. It sounded like someone or something was crashing through the bushes out in front. We soon figured out that it was some kind of fruit that was falling onto the Palm Franz making all that noise. Enabled us to sleep a lot easier at night. You get used to the frog and birds at night and throughout the day. They actually are quite comforting at night. You can also hear the waves crashing against the rocks but only barely as the frogs drown out the sound. We found Kai Malolo to be very very relaxing and just what we needed. This is a fantastic house rental, one of the best we have ever rented in fact. We will definitely be coming back."

  • Amazing location. Would stay again.

    "4.5 stars. We enjoyed staying at Hibiscus House. If you go to the Big Island, you are missing out if you only stay near Kona. The location was perfect for exploring Volcano National Park, the tide pools right down the street and the natural beauty of the rainforest. Can't say enough about the beautiful and easy snorkeling 5 minutes away on foot. Be ready for an adventure, this part of the island is amazing, but not touristy-no resorts here! We rented the top floor of the house, and it was as shown in the pictures. There is no a/c but the house cools off when all the windows and doors are open. This lets in the natural breezes and also the sound of tiny coquis frogs loudly chirping at night. If you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs. The sleeping arrangements worked for six of us, the kitchen was stocked with what you need to cook, and the huge lanai was my favorite part of the house. We utilized the large table on the lanai for every meal and coffee early in the morning. The kids spent time picking tropical fruits and playing in the warm tide pool in the yard. The house is carpeted (not the kitchen) and I wish it had tile instead. I don't think it was damp because we were careful to remove shoes and rain gear outside, but with the humidity, it just felt like it. That is a small suggestion for future updates, but it did not hinder our enjoyment or fun! We would stay here again."

  • Idyll retreat close to tidepools

    "We had a gorgeous stay in this very well designed and furnished modern home. Very spacious rooms, convinient outdoor showers, beautiful garden to look upon while having dinner on lanai. Will be happy to come back. We had to leave early because of Iselle. I hope there is not much damage to the house from the storm."

  • Family Retreat

    "We stayed at Nanea Kai in late July/early August for 6 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. There were 7 of us in our party including 8 & 10 year old grandchildren. The tidal pool was a big hit, both because of the Koi (the kids named each one) and because we could practice snorkeling in it. The house itself is well maintained and up to date. It was wonderful to have a washer & dryer to use. Beds were comfortable and we really appreciated the fans in every room. We traveled to the volcano, the Rainbow Falls, into Hilo, to Mona Kea Visitor’s Center, and across the island to swim and snorkel. We found restaurants & grocery stores in Pahoa although we did stop at Safeway in Hilo as we went through there. We hope that Tropical Storm Iselle didn’t do damage to the property so that others will be able to enjoy it, also. Thanks, Kim, for a great time. We appreciated your house, all your snorkeling gear & boogie boards, and especially your flexibility on our departure time. Our 10 year old grandson summed it all up by saying, as we were leaving, “I’m going to miss this place.”"
