About The Owner

Aloha! We are Michael & Candi . We caretakers of Maka Nui on which Pali Hale is located . We have lived on this property since 1991 Being Big Island residents for over 29 years this is now home forever. The new owners have enlisted our help to make this a peaceful retreat from their busy life in the mainland. To that end we are always trying!

We love meeting new guests & giving clues as to the best way to enjoy the island while here. There have been many return's , so must be doing something right!

So we hope to hear from all of you & treat you to our slice of paradise.

Mahalo Candi & Michael

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why The Owner chose Kona Coast

The property is on a cliff over looking Kealakeakua Bay , which is a marine preserve & offers wonderful kayaking -snokeling. The quiet rural area is perfect for enjoying the birds & smells of Hawaii . But is a short 15-20 minute drive to Kailua town for night life.

Maka Nui means eye veiw which is obvious when you enter the gated property.

What makes this cottage unique

First is the coast line veiw, then the fresh fruits & flowers which are yours for the picking.The security of your own resort type setting.There are 2 mascots ( dogs)named Frick & Frack which love to meet you also. We also 2 cats and we are their staff! The peace & quiet is a plus for all.

Quaint and cool

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at the cottage. Candi was a friendly, engaging, and helpful host. The cottage itself, though quaint and simple as described, fit our needs perfectly. The view is amazing, and the location superb. Short drive down to great snorkeling and kayaking. Nearby food shopping is excellent and 20 min to Kona for restaurants. But the highlight for us was the gorgeous swimming pool that we were lucky to have for ourselves on this trip. We will be back!...Oh, almost forgot, Candi's dog's Frick and Frack were great hosts too.

Great location with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the quaint cottage, and Candi was a wonderful host. The location was perfect for us - away from the busy Kona area but close enough for a short drive to anywhere on the west coast. Breakfast with a view from the lanai each morning was a treat. Cottage was just the right size for the two of us. Would highly recommend for a couple! Thanks for a wonderful stay, Candi!

An amazing place to stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place to stay! The cottage is quaint and perfect for a couple. The view from the lanai (porch), which overlooks the mountainside all the way down to the coast, is lush and tropical. Located in the middle of a fruit plantation, you can walk out to pick fresh mangoes and papaya. Candi, the caretaker, is personable and helpful with whatever you might need. We would definitely stay there again! I miss it already!

a cottage with a view

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoy our 2 week stay in our cozy cottage. The view from the lanai overlooking the Kealakekua Bay was awesome and we ate all our meals on the lanai. The kitchen was well equipped which was appreciated since we cooked many of our dinners at the cottage. We took advantage of the nearby pool which was beautiful. The Wi-Fi worked good although our AT&T service was spotty. Candi was a fabulous host with ready local information which added to the enjoyment of our stay. We enjoyed the coffee and wide variety of fruits grown on the farm. The quiet picturesque location was somewhat remote but yet easily accessible to places north and south on the island. We would strongly recommend this cottage for those looking for a unique island getaway.

Everything we expected and MORE!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you have been afraid to book a place on line, rest assured that this property undersells itself and over delivers! We were at this little piece of the Big Islands for 11 days, and enjoyed every minute at the cottage. Candi is a great host, who is helpful in everyway possible. From the welcoming basket of fruit, cookies, candies, to milk and juice in the fridge, Candi is the kind of host that you will enjoy. She is available for information to make your stay enjoyable, or just a wave as she drives by to say good morning.

The cottage is well equipped in the kitchen, lots of beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, masks and snorkels. Oh, and the cottage is very clean.

This is a place you can pack light. The washer and dryer is close at hand.

We will defiantly be back, and in the meantime we will make sure our friends know.

Great job on making our vacation memorable Candi.

A Room with a View

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a lovely little retreat with an absolute killer view. I really enjoyed the privacy and quiet the farm offers as well as the South Kona location. It's convenient to town, south coast beach attractions and other parts of the island. I would highly recommend for those who prefer a more 'natural/local' experience, in comparison to the 'resort/touristy' experience. It's a great place to relax and recharge. Candi was a helpful and gracious host and made me feel at home. Hope to come back soon!
