  • The Best!

    "There are simply not enough superlatives to describe Home of the Hula Moon. We've just returned after a wonderful 10-day family stay there. We could not have asked for a more lovely and accommodating home. We have stayed in many vacation rentals and never before have we found a home where the photos online do not do justice to the reality of the place. This home has to be seen to be believed. The furnishings are beautiful, comfortable and first class. The art work throughout the house is impressive. And everything is meticulously maintained. Before writing this review I reread the description of Hula Moon on the website. There is not a single misstatement or exaggeration in that description. In fact, if anything, it understates how much Hula Moon has to offer. The house lacks absolutely nothing: the kitchen is stocked with all the dishes, glassware, utensils, tools and appliances one could possibly need and the garage is filled with bikes, beach chairs and umbrellas, snorkel equipment, reef shoes and pool toys for everyone. And if you do somehow find there is something lacking, I'm quite sure Niki or Steve, the concierge/property managers would happily bring it to you. We did have a couple of minor equipment glitches early in our stay, but the owner, Niki and Steve all went out of their way to make sure everything was up and working properly. We loved lounging on the lanai or the back lawn watching the ocean, the turtles and the sunsets. At night, we floated in the pool gazing at the impressive night sky over the Big Island. (The only complaint we could possibly have is that we wished there was a way to turn off some of the outside lights around the pool to get an even clearer view of the sky.) Although we loved spending time at the local beaches and snorkeling, we found that we rarely wanted to leave the property. There is something magical and inviting about the place that makes it hard to leave. You never feel as if you're in a rental property. We felt as if we were in our own home -- it's just that welcoming. It's very clear that the owners and managers treat this home with love. If you have the chance, run, don't walk, to book some time at Home of the Hula Moon. You will not regret it. We're already trying to figure out when we'll be able to get back there. Annette & Mike"

  • Best vacation ever!

    "Hi Pattie, I just wanted to thank you so much for the best vacation I have ever been on. The place was more than what I had expected. And the ocean was breathtaking. We had plans to hike, explore other beaches and shop a little, we ended up staying and enjoying the place we had and loving every minute. We had one person that was not an ocean. She wanted to go to a hotel pool and hang out. Well she is now an ocean lover. How could you not be? Right!! We met up with my nephew his wife and three kids who we had never met before. I can’t express how great the trip was. The house gave us the perfect location to just enjoy each other without having the hassle of going anywhere. The last day we cleaned up. Hopefully you were happy with how we left it. We did find the checkout procedures. We did everything we could to make it easy to clean. Once we were pretty close to being done my two boys and I took one last swim out to the rocks together. This is a memory I will never forget. This trip brought us all closer together which we all really needed. I can’t thank you enough for working with me on the house and making it possible. I wish we could have met up with you on this trip. Hopefully we will be able to come back next year and stay longer. Take Care Mahalo! Mary"

  • Spectacular view

    "The condo was perfect and we had more room than we needed. Clean, well-equipped and well maintained with a serviceable kitchen and updated bathrooms (3!) You might be tempted to bring various things but you don't need to. There were plenty of high quality beach towels, beach chairs, even a beach umbrella. Previous guests had left behind enough staples and condiments to make it easy to cook, and you can get groceries right next door, although the food land in Mauna Lani was cheaper. The building manager was lovely and put a small bouquet of flowers in the elevator every day. It's also super close to two of the best beaches we've ever experienced., Hapuna and Beach 69, and easy driving distance to charming farmers' markets in Waimea. But it's all about the view. We whale/sunset watched and star gazed on the balcony, then watched the sunrise from the back gallery. Just spectacular."

  • Beautiful!!

    "My family ( 2 daughters, son in law and two year old grandson) was on the big Island for a wedding. My daughter and her husband and toddler stayed in the lower apartment. The house was very clean and well stocked. We loved the house!! It was steps to the beach. The house had everything you would need to go to the beach, chairs etc. The property manager was very helpful. She had a few groceries delivered so we would be able to have breakfast in the morning. We will be definitely be coming back in the future!"
