Kuuleinani Steinke purchased this Guest House in 2012

Perfect getaway, perfect location
This house is the perfect place to have a great view of the sunsets, be away from the crowds, but still be close to all the great things this island has to offer. Highly recommend this amazing, well-appointed home!
A place of peace during IRONMAN Week
We stayed here for 12 days during IRONMAN week. Two of us were on the island to work, and one of us was racing the race. This was absolutely perfect for us....it was a retreat away from the chaos of town, but close enough to everything so we could get to what we needed to get to for work and the race.
The Steinke family is so welcoming and so willing to do anything to make your stay more enjoyable or comfortable. We loved chatting with them and meeting the boys. Harley (the dog) was also a favorite. :) They put together a book of local recommendations, which we used and really appreciated.
We loved having meals out on the lanai overlooking the Pacific coast, and evenings spent working were much more enjoyable out on the sectional on the lanai by the fire pit.
The bedrooms are spacious and the kitchen is well-stocked with all tools you may need. Past guests have left behind some spices/staples too, so that's really handy to check on before heading to the store for groceries (we recommend Costco and KTA).
If the Big Island ever calls us back, we absolutely will be seeking to stay at Ka Hale 'O Maluhia. The memories we made there and on our entire trip will not soon be forgotten.
Would stay again
The house was very clean. Located in a quiet neighborhood which was important since we had the windows open when we slept. The deck had a nice view. Was located relatively close to the boat harbor for SCUBA trips (about 15 min drive). Didn't really spend very much time there because we were always out doing things. Chose this rental due to its central location along the west coast and the fact that it had three bedrooms. And because it looked cute. Was not dissapointed.
Far surpassed our expectations!
We had such a great experience at the home of Garrett and Kuulei! It was a beautiful home with every amenity needed. The lanai out front was cool and breezy and we spent all if our spare time and meal time enjoying the amazing view.the elevation there makes it much cooler that down at the beach. So delightful! There is a cute little market not far away that carries an unexpected amount of groceries and precooked food. Our hosts were such a cool little family. We enjoyed the conversation and their eagerness to accommodate our needs. Kuulei was incredibly helpful in keeping me updated on the condition of the island as the hurricane came and went, as we were scheduled to arrive the next week. We would 100 percent stay there again and highly recommend it! We were so sad to leave!
Perfect Rental for Our Nearby Wedding
The rental was fantastic! We booked for 5 adults and there was plenty of space for all of us. We choose this location due to the 1) interior design which is spacious, welcoming and relaxing, and 2) our Coffee Farm wedding venue was very close by.
The ocean view was a bit obscured by the Vog. We weren't bothered much since we were relatively busy with wedding plans, and because we fully expected it since Mount Kilauea was erupting during our visit. I think the only downside to our stay was that we weren't sure were the washer and dryer were, so we opted not to use them.
Very nice place to stay while on the big island! Beautiful view from porch. Nicely furnished and decorated with all the amenities we needed. Close to airport and to other areas around Kona.
