About the property

3BR, 3BA sleeps 6

Looking for a real, high-end home for your family vacation? You’ve found it! Hale Manawale’a is a single story stand-alone cottage style home (no shared walls, no one above or below) completed in December 2014 offering 1900+ sq. ft.. Luxuriously furnished with island-style themes, our home will present you a first-class Hawaiian vacation experience unmatched by investment grade properties. Our guests describe it as “beyond expectations – immaculate yet so welcoming”. Highlights of what we offer:

**Live Well**

Great Room furniture is all Tommy Bahama – truly luxurious modern island styling, known for extraordinarily comfortable seating.

Gourmet Chef’s Kitchen – well equipped with top brands like Henckle, Calphalon, and Lenox and stocked with a wide array of spices, oils, sweeteners and tea.

Three well-appointed bedrooms, each with its own en-suite bath.

**For Your Comfort**

Plush Egyptian cotton towels and linens – see our reviews.

High-end BeautyRest Recharge series pillowtop mattresses.

Hale Manawale’a is kept in top condition

We want your stay to be “perfect”. That’s why we manage our own properties – we love doing it and realizing a much higher standard. A couple things we do:

- We take Hale Manawale’a “off-line” for 7-10 days each quarter to oversee extensive cleaning and maintenance (well beyond what commercial/property management services provide). At that time we refresh inventory and do repairs as needed to make sure everything is in great shape.

- To keep the unit fresh and manage wear-and-tear in between we manage occupancy and we do not fill short gaps in our booking calendar.

**Outdoor Fun – we gear you up**

Adult and youth snorkel gear (new October 2016)

Beach towels, chairs, mats, and umbrella

Big cooler, Rubbermaid containers and utensils for your picnic

Adult, youth and child boogie boards

Toddler sand toys

Access to KaMilo’s fantastic recreation – conveniently close but not noisy. The facility offers a lap pool, lagoon pool with a large picturesque lawn, two spas, fitness center and a social-gathering Hale with a massive grill.

Beach access within the Mauna Lani Resort: enjoy our complementary access privileges to the Mauna Lani Beach Club complete with lounge chairs, a rental pavilion for paddle boards and other gear, some of the best snorkeling in Hawaii and a wonderful waterfront restaurant; the remarkable, secluded (often uncrowded) Black Sand beach; or, wander down to the lava/coral beach at the end of Puako Bay to watch the surfers or enjoy the sunset.

**Hale Manawale’a welcomes families! ** The two twin XL beds in the second Master Suite are ideal for children, but full length for teens and adults. We keep booster seats, step stools, high chair, porta-crib and toddler dishware on hand for our youngest guests. The large lanais and common areas on the side and in front of our unit provide a fun space for kids to stretch and play.

**More Fun Around KaMilo**

Try the spa at the 5-star Mauna Lani or Fairmont hotels, both special.

Stroll or ride to the Holoholokai Petroglyph Beach Park, a mere half mile away.

Top-shelf restaurants – at the Mauna Lani Shops, Lava Lava Beach Club down the road at Waikoloa, or try Browns at the Fairmont and Canoe House at the Mauna Lani.

Golf - the famous Mauna Lani North and South courses are excellent. Five other great courses within 7 miles.

Activities around the island – many, many options, just ask us.

**We Support You**

We’ve been managing our own rental properties for 19 years and take pride in the tools and techniques we’ve developed to keep our homes in great shape and running smoothly. In the rare case where something isn’t quite right, you have access to us 24/7 and to our hand-picked, skilled and conscientious on-island support team.

About Larry and Maria

Larry and Maria live in Arizona and have been vacationing in Hawaii for the past twenty years. We love the Big Island, the people of Hawaii, and the Aloha Spirit!

Larry and Maria purchased this condo in 2014

Why Larry and Maria chose Kohala Coast

In choosing our Hawaii home, we searched all over the Kohala Coast area. We feel Mauna Lani offers a far superior resort living experience. KaMilo's awesome rec center, the superb floor plan, styling and finish quality made Hale Manawale'a our preferred choice among many.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay here has been great - the house is so comfortable and well equipped. It made for a very enjoyable stay. We have no suggestions for changes to your house - it's great. We appreciated the plush towels, the thoroughly outfitted kitchen and the very efficient barbecue.

It was nice to have a few books and games at our disposal. I am the undisputed Yahtzee champ for the week.

To summarize ... all four of us had a great time with your house as our base. We hope to return ourselves, but we'll be sure to recommend you to our friends.

Beautiful open floor plan home in quiet well maintained resort neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Our family consisted of a grandmother, husband and wife and 3 yr old. All together for 10 days We all were very comfortable in this 3 bedroom with three en suite bathroom floor plan. Plenty of room for all to have a quiet spot. Great location for exploring the island and having the private pool near by was fun. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensilsand every appliance you might need. Great BBQ and covered outdoor dining Private lanai off beautiful master suite end of the home. Beach gear was provided and everything was very well maintained The only thing that would have made it perfect for us would be to have the queen bed in the room with the larger bathroom/double vanity. Two twin beds lends itself to a kids room and he could manage with the smaller bathroom. We loved this spot!! It was Immaculate, top notch appliances with very comfy furniture and beds. I highly recommend this property. No complaints. Beyond our expectations. The owners were very easy to communicate with and prompt to respond. It made our vacation so much better to have a place to call home. I hope we can return as there are still so many places (beaches) we want to see! Mahalo Maria and Larry! We didn't want to leave!

A dream Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not due this resort justice! Even more beautiful in person. It was a really relaxing expirence, a short drive to the private beach was awesome. I write this review a year later but it was truly an unforgettable expirence. The home was fully equipped and The owners made the process to check in so easy. We traveled with a 1yr old and we didn't have to take very much because they had everything we needed play pen, high chair, and kid dishes. They also had all the things you need for the beach however I would rcommend if you are into snorkeling that you bring your own and one for everyone or you will be sharing. Just everything was on point we will definately book again.

Owner's Response: Aloha Sandra. Very glad to hear you and your family had a great experience at Hale Manawale'a and KaMilo. We've found a set of snorkel gear which meets our standards as divers for the great snorkel experience we wish for our guests. Hale Manawale'a now comes with top-flight snorkel gear.

Extra Nice

  • 5 of 5

Hale Manawale'a is exactly as advertised, gorgeous and wonderfully equipped. The owners have thought through the needs of their guest. Its the extra touches that make this rental special. Here are a few examples. All the bathrooms have an ample supply extra plush towels, (much nicer than the Fairmont's). The beach equipment and toys (beach towels, folding chairs, umbrellas, mats, boogie boards) are in great shape and not just someones leftovers. There are a number of rechargeable flashlights around the house which are a necessity if you're going to explore Kilauea at night. There's a first aid kit which came very handy to treat blisters from too much golf and snorkeling. The private Beach Club (or Black Sand beach) is a great place for people of all ages to spend the day. Hale Manawale'a is great.

A Luxurious Hawaiian Haven

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO, as well as our family of five's first visit to Hawaii, and we couldn't have had a nicer time. While celebrating our son's college graduation, Hale Manawale'a proved to be a luxurious haven, whether we were on the go exploring the Big Island's many sites, or relaxing from our day's adventures. We felt as though we had hit the jackpot, because this like-new home is in a wonderful location―close to wonderful beaches and a great jumping-off spot for heading in any direction, including waterfalls in the rain forest and volcanoes.

Maria and Larry are excellent, prompt communicators whose suggestions for dining and activities proved to be spot-on. And since food is expensive on the island, their beautifully equipped kitchen and grill was a godsend (I was thrilled to find a meat thermometer when we cooked salmon), as was the friendly grocery store just minutes away. What's more, there were activities at these nearby shops and restaurants: on our last night, we enjoyed a delightful free Hawaiian dance and fire show.

When on the go, we made good use of Hale Manawale'a's beach chairs, boogie boards, cooler, and snorkeling guidebook. Back at our home-away-from-home, we loved relaxing on the ultra-private, peaceful lanai, or walking to the beautiful pools and hot tub at the recreation center. An added bonus is access to a gorgeous private owner's beach just a short drive away, one of many excellent snorkeling spots. We would love to return to Hale Manawale'a, and can't recommend this luxurious vacation spot highly enough!

Comfortable, Well-Furnished, Excellent Rental

  • 5 of 5

It’s hard to overstate how wonderful our accommodations were at Hale Manawale’a. Larry and Maria seemingly have gone to great lengths to see that everything one could want or need in a vacation rental has been thought of and accounted for. The house has a wonderful open floor plan and the rooms are accurately represented in the photos. Upon arrival we found it to be very clean and in top condition. Our party of 6 (4 adults, 2 children) were quite comfortable throughout what was a very enjoyable stay. The community pool/ fitness facility and the Beach Club access were bonuses that we definitely put to good use. We would happily stay here again when we return to the Big Island.

As comfortable as our home!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our stay at KaMilo and have only good things to say about the Home! From the moment we walked in the door we knew that this place would not disappoint as so many have before. Everything was 5* and the most important was of course the bedding. When you are on the road for 6 months every year you realize how important sleep is. I have to say that we slept the best while staying at KaMilo. Over three months of traveling and staying in 5 star hotels this was heaven. Unfortunately we were not so lucky on our way back to Maui. We reserved a condo for 9 nights and had to move out after three. I don't understand why so many pictures of the homes advertised are really not reality. KaMilo provided more than advertised and hopefully we have the choice to come back in the future. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home - Jeed, Nina and Urs Kaelin

Owner's Response: Aloha Urs, We can't imagine a nicer complement than you provided in your title. Thank You! Larry traveled extensively during his career (more than 4 million miles) so we know what that's like. It's why we made Hale Manawale'a like a real home. We'd love to have you and your family back on your next Big Island holiday. Aloha, Larry and Maria
