Exceptional in every way!

  • 5 of 5

The home is extraordinary in all ways. A location and view that can not be duplicated (in part as these cliffside homes are no longer approved for building). Quiet, serene location. Un-paralled view. We spent every morning having breakfast by the pool. We chose five different sites on the property for dinners. How amazing is that? The house was impeccably clean, the furnishings exquisite. Candi was a wonderful, warm hostess, available whenever we needer her expertise and insight. We loved the geckos, they became part of the family, and Frick and Frack were quickly adopted. Looking out from the kitchen at the beautiful birds at the feeder was a joy. Every day was spent exploring the island, every late afternoon/evening there was this feeling of returning "home" to our little piece of paradise. As others have mentioned, we would love to rent the house another time! I would highly recommend this amazing home for any visit to Hawaii.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home inside and out - spectacular landscaping and a really nice pool. The home was equipped with everything one needs to cook. We spent all our time on the spacious lanai looking at the beautiful view. Candi was an excellent host. We would love to rent the house again

We Found Nirvana!

  • 5 of 5

Let me first say that the pictures on here, don't come close to demonstrating just how incredible this house actually is! We stayed at Maka Nui for 8 nights and I can tell you it was extremely hard to leave... It's so awesome, it makes it difficult to leave and do other activities on the island. In addition, Candi's attention to detail and hospitality made our stay that much more special.

We arrived very late, around 1am. The house was easy to find thanks to Candi's directions, and we found two baskets full of local fruits from the property, along with coffee, etc. When we finally arose midday, Candi came down to meet us and give us the lay of the land. All her suggestions were incredibly helpful, she knows her stuff and won't steer you wrong. You will also get to meet her two awesome dogs, Frick and Frack.

The house is beautifully furnished, with Hawaiian and Asian accents. The screened in wrap around porch has several sitting areas, a wet bar, and even a dining area. The pool is fantastic and refreshing. The beds are comfortable - the bathrooms sizeable, and the kitchen fully equipped from spices to pots. We used the grill quite frequently, cooking at home most nights.

We hope to come back to Maka Nui, next time w/friends. I am forever in love with this place - not sure any others will ever compare! Mahalo Candi and Aloha to Maka Nui!

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!
