  • Great stay, close to Hilo and surrounding sights.

    "The four of us had a great stay at Hale Manu. We were so delighted with all the birds, we went out and bought bird seed to keep them coming for the few days we were there. We also enjoyed being lulled to sleep at night by the sounds of the frogs. The house suited two couples perfectly as the two bedrooms were on separate floors and as the early risers, we took the one closest to the kitchen to make coffee! We chose a house close to Hilo as we planned to concentrate on the east side sites. We were blessed with fair sunny days. It only rained the morning we were leaving. The house was exactly as presented and we would recommend it as a comfortable and well equipped house near Hilo. It even had a blender so we could make smoothies."

  • Loved the house and the sunrises were gorgeous!

    "The house was wonderful for our two families. We had small children and they had a blast! Loved having the lanai. We used it every night for meals and playing cards after the kids went to bed. The house was well appointed and had everything we needed - stocked kitchen, snorkel gear, and lots of towels. Anna was really gracious as well. Couldn't recommend this place enough!"

  • Outstanding Property!!

    "This estate is by far the greatest property we have ever rented! We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at your home, top notch! The views are amazing along with the sound of crashing waves, and the warmth of the sun is priceless! This vacation was spectacular and I would recommend this home to anyone who wants a great time away from it all! Thanks again for sharing this property with us! Warmly, The Fluet Family"

  • The perfect house and location to enjoy your family vacation on the southeastern part of Big Island!

    "We fell in love with this beautiful house located so close to the ocean! Just as described. Sleeping every night the windows open, we had deep and restful sleep, thanks to the sound of the waves crashing on the nearby cliffs. In the morning, we were gently awaken with beautiful sunrises and regularly had the visit of adorable finches. The house was large enough and very convenient for our family of 6, especially for our 4 children (between 10 and 17) who have relatively "large vital, living space”. It had all the commodities that are needed (dishwasher/washing/drying machines) for a pleasant and enjoyable stay. From there, we went on top of the Mauna Kea for a spectacular view of the sunset and stargazing, explored the Volcano National Park to walk through a crater and see the lava flowing in the ocean (by bike, via Kalapana), swam in the Ahalanui hot pond, visited the tide pools in the beautiful region of Puna, and even drove to South Point for a cliff dive in the Ocean! Gary is the perfect host, as he timely provided guidance and answers to our questions. He even arranged to send me home some clothes (a pair of pants and a shirt) that I had forgotten in his house! This was clearly the best of the four properties that we rented during our 3-week stay in Hawaii (by the way, we better enjoyed our stay there on the East coast than in Kona on the West coast). We highly recommend this property."
