About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 6

Aloha, and welcome to “Hale O’Honu,” House of the Sea Turtle, a brand new and beautiful 3 bedroom/3 bathroom cottage that offers everything that you would ever desire on your Big Island vacation in Mauna Lani.

Hale O’Honu is a professionally decorated single story, free-standing cottage (no stairs and not a shared-wall townhouse) that has an atmosphere of sophistication yet is comfortable and inviting. Perfect for 2 to 6 guests, it is a true island home away from home…

The house has a modern Polynesian design and a spacious, 1700 sq. ft, open floor plan with beautiful travertine floors throughout and a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, outfitted with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances.

Two private backyard lanais (which open from large sliding glass doors off the living room and master bedroom) are furnished with stylish lounge chairs and a BBQ, and are surrounded by lush, tropical landscaping, giving a sense of tranquility and calm.

There are two bright and airy master bedroom suites, both with spa-like, en-suite bathrooms (large soaking tub, generous walk-in showers, double sinks and vanities) and walk-in closets. One master offers a plush, Cal. king bed while the other offers two XL twin beds that can be joined to make a king if desired. The third bedroom has a queen and also has an en-suite bath. All of the beds are outfitted with luxurious 600 thread count sheets and beautiful cotton/linen quilts, and all of the baths are stocked with white, fluffy, 100% cotton towels.

The bedrooms are also all equipped with flat screen TV’s with the living room boasting a state-of-the art, 75 inch flat screen, Smart TV - just lower the automatic, dropdown blinds and you have a screening room that makes for the perfect movie night. Netflix is available free.

The house also provides (among other things)…

-Free High Speed Wi-Fi

-Cable TV

-Free Netflix

-Beach chairs

-Boogie Boards

-Beach Towels

-Umbrellas

-Games for kids of all ages (Monopoly, dominos, backgammon, chess, etc.)

-Pack ‘N Play

-High Chair

-Blender

-Rice Maker

-And a Ukulele (complete with a how-to-play instructional manual)

Other Amenities

Guests of Hale O’Honu get full use of KaMilo’s spectacular, 2 acre Recreation Center, which is about a 90 second walk from the cottage.

The Rec Center offers a gorgeous, mosaic tile lap pool, a large lagoon style family pool, a kiddy wading pool, two Jacuzzi spas, a workout building with exercise machines, free-weights and showers (with separate men’s and women’s locker rooms).

There is also a large, covered pavilion adjacent to the lagoon pool with a kitchen, BBQ, sink and fridge – a perfect place to have a meal, host a party or enjoy a relaxing cocktail (or two).

Access to a Private Beach Paradise

The private Mauna Lani Beach Club (a gate card that we provide our guests allows entrance) is only a couple minutes drive away and is another perk of renting Hale O’Honu.

It is a picturesque white sand beach - a true oasis - perfect for snorkeling (*one of the best snorkel spots on the whole island), swimming, kayaking and stand up paddling (*there is a fully stocked rental kiosk at the beach). Or, if you just want to relax, the Beach Club offers cabanas and lounge chairs (free of charge), so just grab your favorite book and you’re set.

There is also an excellent restaurant and bar at the Beach Club where you can eat and take in the view of nearby Maui or order your food to go and picnic on the beach. And sunsets here are just breathtaking!

The home served as a jumping off point to travel around The Big Island. The house is In a well situated, beautiful resort with a convenient shopping plaza. There is both a beautiful beach and two great pools on the property. The house is roomie, well appointed, clean, comfortable with great facilities. Most importantly, the beds are great. I would definitely come back here.

Reviewer Comments:

My boyfriend and I were here in Sept 2016. Our experience was very consistent with the positive reviews - very comfortable and spacious new build, beautifully decorated and very easy access (a minute or two walk next door) to the large and well-designed pool area which was so uncrowded it felt private. Shig the property manager was very responsive and took very good care of us. Access to the property and guidance from finding the location to appliance use was all very straightforward. Very good value if a bit of a drive to the vibrant town of Kona; however we spent plenty of time off exploring the island anyway.

We were very pleased with the rental. It was roomy, clean, comfortable for the six of us (two young ones). The location was good, close to all the amenities.

Fantastic place

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautifully appointed, definitely the most chic rental we've ever stayed at. That said, it never felt "fussy" or formal. The extra touches the owners provided made it feel like a super deluxe hotel while having the convenience of a kitchen and our own family space. Pool area very nice. Owner's notes/info made everything very easy and gave us an insider's view to the area. House was immaculate. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful house, well equipped, washer and dryer, close to the pool and within walking distance to the ocean. Close proximity to beaches, restaurants but secluded enough for complete relaxation. Wonderful stay!!

Excellent home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Every year my husband and I visit the Big Island. We love it there! My expectations are high when renting a vacation home. This home did not disappoint. The home was everything they said it would be in their descriptions. I felt at home as soon as I walked in. The beds were so comfortable, the linens high quality. Bathrooms gorgeous! They have thought of everything you would need on your vacation. I enjoy cooking, and the kitchen was perfect, with everything you might need. So many vacation homes we've rented look run down and not looked after. This home is immaculate and you can see the care and attention to every detail. I highly recommend. Believe me you won't regret it.
