Three days in the sun
"A great place to stay, while it is away from any shops and restaurants it is close enough to be able to go out for dinner to Hilo or Pahoa or,if you wanted to, buy supplies and cook. The property is very clean and big enough for the whole family or multiple couples. The deck areas on level 2 and 3 are excellent to entertain or just sit back and enjoy the views.
Champagne ponds was amazing to swim in, we spent a lot of our days there in the crystal clear waters just a short walk away.
We enjoyed our stay even though it was quite warm due to unseasonally high humidity which made it difficult to cool down during the nights as there is no air conditioning."

"Stayed here with my wife and 4 children. They didn't want to leave and we would come back again. They loved the pond in the back yard and the Champagne pond and had a blast snorkeling. The pond in the backyard was better than the Champagne pond in our opinion. The kitchen had what we needed and there were some snorkeling toys available for use. We never used the downstairs rooms or pool table.
Generally a quiet location although we did hear the neighbors occasionally but it still felt secluded and private. Very different feeling than Honolulu which is exactly what we were looking for. You can hear the waves and birds constantly so it was never perfectly quiet (I thought it was nice to hear).
The drive to the nearest grocery store is a bit of a hike, but it wasn't really out of our way since we passed in front of it whenever we went to Volcano National Park, the Punaluu black sand beach, and waterfalls. The Big Island had just about everything we wanted to do - I'd recommend this location unless you want the party / beach scene of Waikiki. Loved the house and location. Sonia was a gracious hostess / manager."

"Cottage is as described. Very clean and well stocked kitchen. The welcome book was outstanding. We did almost everything recommended in the book. Green Sands beach was also fun. Paid $40 to a local to pile into small pickup with 6 others, and well worth it to see southern most part of USA. This cottage was a perfect base for daily adventures and we miss it a lot!"

"We spent a memorable week at Ka Lani Kai celebrating 35 years of marriage, and found it and its surroundings to be ideal for our adventurous needs. Not only was the cottage warm and comfortable, but the neighborhood presented a relaxed atmosphere, far away from the hectic tourism on the Kona side. We found it a convenient starting place for our several road trips to the furthest north, south, east, and west corners of the island, and our trusty GPS always got us there and back; we especially liked the Red Road, and "tunneling" through the tree canopy. While the enormous tidal surges brought on by hurricane Olaf prevented snorkeling, it did provide memorable views (and photos) of enormous waves breaking over lava formations; during the highest tides sea water flowed down the path next to the cottage, overflowing the pond temporarily, but a phone call to Jeana informed us "not to worry". Our visit to the Big Island was nearly perfect, and Ka Lani Kai even better!"
