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 presents you a first-class Hawaiian vacation experience unmatched by investment grade properties. Our guests describe it as “beyond expectations", "so inviting" and "immaculate". Highlights of what we offer:

**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. At that time we refresh inventory and do repairs as needed to make sure everything is in great shape.

- To keep the unit fresh 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.

Make memories of a life time! Discover your “best vacation ever” with the enchantment of Hawaii, the irresistible call of life on “Hawaiian Time” and Hale Manawale’a – Home of a Generous Heart. Hale Manawale’a books up throughout the year, so reserve now while your dates are still available.

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.

average rating of 5.0 based on 27 reviews

Really enjoyable stay; thank you for a memorable spring break!

  • 5 of 5

Home was perfect for our family of four; the location, amenities, wifi, cable access, the patio, etc. were all just as homely one could feel. Our 4 year old felt at home enough to suggest that we never go back to our real home. We loved everything and Maria/Larry were always gracious to answer all of our questions. The thoughtfulness of stuff left in the garage is really awesome - from beach bags, to lounge chairs, to carpets, it made life very easy for us and keeping the car in the garage was really useful (cars get hot outside). We eventually went and shopped for a home at KaMilo and might become a neighbor (we will see). Thank you Larry and Maria for the detail, and for the immediate response to any question.

Fabulous vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this home was a highlight of our Hawaiian vacation. Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens) had ample room and were very comfortable in this beautifully furnished house. So many amenities made our trip even more enjoyable such as high-end kitchen appliances and tools, very nice lanai furniture, luxurious bathrooms, and quality beach gear (umbrella, cooler, chairs, etc.). The location was a good proximity to beaches and shopping. The owners were very helpful and responsive to questions we had prior to and during our trip. Highly recommend!

First off I have to tell you that my husband and I have been bringing our family to the Big Island for over twenty years. We have stayed at various locations in the area, but really love Ka Milo. The location of this unit is perfect - close to beaches, shops, hotels and restaurants. The unit is beautifully decorated with nice furniture and paintings. What appealed to my family the most was the fact that this unit was by far the cleanest and most organized place we have every stayed at. It also was very quiet and peaceful. The owners have put in a lot of time and energy in everything and it shows.

Gorgeous home, would highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for a week with our 3 children and this house is just as beautiful and luxurious as it looks in photos. The house was equipped with everything we needed including snorkeling gear, boogie boards and sand toys for the kids. We loved the location! So convenient to a variety of beautiful beaches and loved the fact that it sits on the Mauna Lani property so we could easily go to any of the restaurants when we wanted. Larry and Maria are responsive hosts and provided clear details on the house. We would highly recommend this house to friends and family and hope to go back soon for another holiday! MAHALO!

Perfect base from which to explore the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time in Hawaii. This house was the perfect base from which to explore the Big Island. It worked really well for my husband, me and our 3 teenage children. The house was impeccable, exactly as described, with all of the beach toys that we needed. We can't wait to come back!

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional place. Larry and Maria are truly gracious hosts, from the communication prior to our stay, to the thoughtful welcome basket and card, and the follow up after our departure, they really made us feel welcome. The home is exactly as shown in the photos. My husband and I stayed here for 5 days with our 4 year old son and the home is perfect for kids with every child friendly amenity you can think of. We only used the communal pool once as the water temperatures were quite cold and the lap pool was under repair and unavailable. The beach is fantastic and very safe for families with kids. Having stayed at the Four Seasons Resort Hualalai for 10 days prior, we wanted a change of scenery and had high expectations. Larry and Maria's home did not disappoint.
