"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hale Mahina Cottage. The accommodations are comfortable and well appointed. We had everything we needed at our disposal. The property is beautiful. We really enjoyed relaxing on the front porch in the early morning and after sundown. The night sky is spectacular!
The location is near the enterance of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. We explored the park trails and visiting centers daily. We spent an evening playing games and another working a puzzle we found at the cottage.
Cheryl was such a pleasure to work with. She answered all my questions and was genuinely interested in meeting our needs. She was quick to respond to my inquiry and all consequent correspondence was timely.
We highly recommend Hale Mahina. Our daughter and her family live in Kona and we hope to visit her regularly. We are looking forward to returning to Hale Mahina again soon."

"This cozy bungalow is tucked into the rainforest and as the other reviewers have said, it is a wonderful place to stay. My partner and I just spent a week there and used it as a base to explore the Volcano NP, Puna and K"au. Coming home at night to a fully stocked kitchen and a fireplace was a great way to relax at the end of the day. Vicky is an artist and has great taste in the paintings, photos, and ceramics that make this VRBO rental a unique and personal place to stay. She is also a great resource."

"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!"

"There were ten of us in our group and more than enough room for all of us to lay our heads. The proximity to the National Park was amazing as we would go back and forth and you are literally there in less than five minutes. Greg, the owner, was great to work with and would highly recommend you stay at his home if you are doing and adventure on the east side of the Big Island. We cooked our dinner at his home and everything you need is there and then some. Our stay was short but was wonderful!"
