  • Paradise!!!

    "My husband & I had a fantastic stay at Bay Front Bungalow. This gated community was so quiet & peaceful & offered the wonderful opportunity to "play in the water" right in your backyard. It's nice that the home owners provide kayaks & some snorkel gear. We snorkeled in the cove & also at Champagne Pond. The best snorkeling for us was at the tide pools just a short drive from the house. The rental was very clean & comfortable & the view was fantastic!!! Yes, construction is still happening next door, but it wasn't any big deal. Glad we chose this rental, as it worked so well for us."

  • Faultless

    "We stayed here for fourteen nights over the 2014/2015 new year period, and it was hard to go home. Kai Malolo is very well appointed that it's hard to understand how such a property can be available in this price range. The house can sleep six in three double bedrooms (I'm not completely sure what size the beds are, don't quote me on this), and has two bathrooms - one with two sinks - Europeans would be use to a bathroom with one sink, but I think in the US two vanity units counts as a full bathroom. Both also contain a shower, in addition there is a home office with printer and wired internet connection and a walk-in closet in another of the rooms. Laundry is kept in a separate room with a writing bureau; and the rest of the house is an open-plan format sharing the lounge and dining area with a kitchen separated through an island. A lanai runs along the rear length of the property allowing for viewing of the whales in the bay area but does not offer direct access to the garden/walk to the coastline. Additionally the garage for the property contains bikes, snorkelling gear and fishing equipment covering most of the activities you may like to do. The pool house has a variety of floats and inflatables for younger or less confident swimmers. The pool area is also completely fenced off so safe if you have little ones wandering around. Our stay was very relaxing. From the first day we were stunned at how quiet the area is - there is literally no noise. The little-used access road is so far from the house that traffic can barely be heard and the neighbours, those closeby, are very respectful with regards to noise (the exception being their dog Rags who does like to make sure the area is well guarded, but I was thankful to know we were at no risk of anything sneaking up on us! He is a very friendly and loveable great beast though). As for facilities inside, almost everything was catered for - there is a great entertainment system, plentiful towels and sheets, a fully stocked kitchen. We even had a running challenge to work out what we *didn't* have and the only thing we found we needed was a pizza wheel ;) The house was spotless, none of the usual insect problems you can have in Hawaii. We really struggled to come up with any downsides to this place: the pool was chilly, the access road is bumpy - neither of which are the owner's fault. Will definitely stay again! Note: property has stairs to the door and is not really suited to disabled access."

  • Looking forward to coming back soon.

    "We had such a relaxing, comfortable time here, and daydream about our return! Jan has created a comfortable, informal, Island-style atmosphere that makes you feel at home right away. With the short path to the tidal pools a few steps away, the location couldn't be more convenient. The lush vegetation surrounding the house and tidal pond creates privacy that lets the the screened lanai be an extension of the living space, with day beds and rattan dining set. Jan has planted orchids from her farm everywhere in the garden, and there are orchids in every room in the house. We had a wonderful, informative tour of her orchid farm while we were there. The spacious kitchen is very well stocked with all kinds of cookware and appliances so we always ate at home with groceries from Pahoa or Hilo and perfectly ripe fruit from the Farmer's Markets. We also borrowed some of the provided swim/snorkeling gear for visits to the adjacent Tidal Pools and to the Alahanui Warm Pond a few miles down the road. Friends joined us for a few days, and the additional outside shower house gave us all elbow room. There is an ample library of travel books, a scrapbook with local recommendations, plus TV, WiFi, and games -- and laundry room with even more books! We were charmed by the little green geckos that discreetly patrol the walls and the sounds of the doves and other birds. Jan was a most hospitable and considerate host and made us feel the true spirit of Aloha. We can't wait to return, and hope that there will be a vacancy!"

  • Great rental!

    "This place was truly wonderful. The lanai looks out over a lush tropical backyard, the tidepools are only a short walk away, and the neighbourhood was very quiet. We followed David's directions for snorkelling at the tidepools (and avoided the crowded public area), and it was fantastic. - we saw more types of fish than I can remember, urchins, beautiful coral, and even a sea turtle swam by! The house is equipped with a ton of snorkel gear, water shoes in all sizes, beach towels and mats, etc. - everything you need. The outdoor shower on the lanai is incredibly refreshing both in the morning or in the evening. And you can watch the geckos scamper and play around you. That alone made staying here worthwhile. We didn't see it listed in the ad, but were pleasantly surprised to find the charcoal BBQ under the house. We grilled our dinner most nights, and even grilled fresh pineapple - yum! The house is a bit of drive from the nearest grocery store / town area (part of its charm is that the neighbourhood is secluded), so if it's your first time arriving you might want to get groceries in Pahoa, or even the Foodland store up in Kea'au depending on where you're coming from, before driving all the way to the house. Overall - a great stay, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to friends or family looking to stay on the Big Island!"
