WE STAYED HERE FOR 7 nights! It was the perfect location for our needs. We were visiting our daughter and granddaughter who live in the area. They would come everyday and spend time with us at this 'gem' of a house! I agree with the other reviews about the pictures on the website. It is even more impressive in person! Thanks again to Candi for her quick response and all her hard work in making our stay so enjoyable . We would definitely stay her again👏👏🎈

Twist my arm... I want to keep this hide-away for myself!

  • 5 of 5

We would like to express our gratitude for the opportunity to have spent a week at Maka Nui, an absolutely beautiful, private haven in paradise. The photos and description of said property, found on the VRBO website, were spot-on, but, this impressively decorated, comfortable home, offered so much more in person and we felt beyond "spoiled" (a word said often when speaking of this property) by all the amenities - both inside and outside, it provided.

The estate and surrounding property is very well-managed and maintained by Candi and her staff. We found her to be genuinely welcoming, never intrusive and always supportive to our needs. We will wholeheartedly recommend this lovely home to our family, to friends, and to whomever will listen!

Although our vacation has ended, we are already longing to return to the serene foothills of Mauna Loa and the vacation home that is Maka Nui.

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

This gem of a property is perched in the foothills of Mauna Loa, high above Kealakekua bay. It has a fantastic view of the bay and the lands below from a great wrap-round screened and enclosed porch. It is quite private and very quiet.

The house is elegantly furnished inside, with all the comforts of home (and then some). You will feel spoiled! There is a fully equipped kitchen that we used to prepare a variety of great dishes.

Candi & Michael, the caretakers, did a fantastic job of taking care of us and answered all of our questions about the property. We really enjoyed the fruit basket they gave us as a welcome present, filled with estate-grown fruits. The estate-grown coffee was outstanding, too!

We were sad to leave and are looking forward to our next visit.

You will love it!

The Perfect Kona Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Maka Nui was perfect. The pictures here on VRBO do not do it justice. It is absolutely beautiful. The kitchen is beautiful and fully equipped. It is a true pleasure to be able to prepare a delicious breakfast with coffee and fruit grown on the property. We spent every breakfast on the huge, fully screened lanai enjoying the epic view of Kealakekua Bay. The master bedroom is romantic, spacious and comfortable with the soothing sounds of the Koi pond babbling just outside. The master bathroom and double marble shower are larger than most hotel rooms. After a long day of snorkeling and playing in the ocean it is a joy to scrub the salt off in the huge jetted tub.

The property is beautiful and has plenty of roaming room. There is a pool with a small waterfall, barbeque grill and chaise lounge chairs for relaxing. You can park your rental in the garage and there are beach towels, chairs, grass mats and coolers available for you to borrow.

Candi, Michael, Happy and Bamboo are warm caretakers and are a wealth of information about the area. We spend half of our stay on the Big Island at Maka Nui and the second half at a large luxury hotel. We definitely felt like we downgraded at the hotel. Next time we plan on spending our entire time at the house.

Owner's Response: You folks were a hit w/ Happy & Bamboo! We also miss seeing you here! Wish would have know you were still at the hotel when we went to the beach there , would have been great to visit more. And to hear the praises makes us see that our work is making guests feel welcome. Thank you for the compliments! Look forward to seeing you again. Candi & Michael

Ahhhh! Relaxation in south Kona

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Maka Nui in the large house (and our 4th time staying on the property--the two previous times in the cottage). We love staying on the estate. The grounds are beautiful and well kept--a tropical paradise. And very private. The house is large, airy, with every amenity you could want. The spacious lanai is the perfect place to have morning coffee (grown on the estate and provided in the welcome basket!) while the sun come up over Mauna Loa. It is also a wonderful place for an afternoon nap.

I enjoy cooking some meals in the well-equipped kitchen and I also enjoy using the fruit that grows in abundanceon the property. Michael and Candi, the caretakers, are always available to get recommendations and to deal with any small problem that may arise.

We are already making plans for a return stay at Maka Nui in 2013!

We had an incredible time. The house is so very comfortable, and equipped with everything you need to relax, eat-in and enjoy the pool. The climate in August was very mild which worked out very well for us and our 5 month old baby. We can't say more about Candi and Mike's hospitality. Good location to drive to the Bay of Refuge as well. View was spectacular.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. So glad that you both & the baby ( what a doll) enjoyed the home. Look forward to you returning maybe when she is a little older. Mahalo again
