  • 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."

  • Delightful stay off the beaten path

    "We recently stayed here over Christmas, and could not think of a better place. Loved the cool air and chorus of frogs at night, and the cottage itself was nice and had plenty of room for my wife and I and our two sons. The lagoon is great fun- we had a lot scheduled, so only spent one day around the house, and spent much of it in the lagoon. If you stay here, be sure to fly into Hilo- we flew into Kona, and had activities scheduled in that area the next day, so spent more time driving than we would have liked, but we did get to see much of the island. Apparently, there is a good reason they call this the Big Island! Thank you, Ilse, for opening your home to us, and the Christmas card was a nice touch and very much appreciated!"

  • Best place on the island!

    "We LOVED our stay here!!! My husband took our stuff in and came running down the stairs, "you got to see this, you are never going to want to leave!" An absolute dream! It was our first trip to the big island and I read and searched and searched for where to stay and really feel like we ended up in the absolute best place on the island! Our two sons (7&9) were so comfortable snorkeling out in all the pools. We saw turtles, eels, so many types of fish and the most stunning coral I've seen. It was the perfect spot to explore the east side of the island, Volcano National Park, Akaka Falls, hot ponds, scenic drives. No matter what we did we were always anxious to hurry "home" and hop back into "our" pools. Such a beautiful, tranquil place. I loved waking up to sunrises over the ocean and drifting off to the sounds of the surf. You really feel like you are in your own personal paradise. Jim and Gail were so wonderful to work with. Quick with responses and happy to answer all of my questions. The place was clean and had everything we needed. We don't know when we'll be returning but when we do, it will definitely include a longer stay at the Coral Pool house!"
