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
-Games for kids of all ages (Monopoly, dominos, backgammon, chess, etc.)
-Pack ‘N Play
-And a Ukulele (complete with a how-to-play instructional manual)
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!
