  • Excellent!

    "What a wonderful vacation we had! Excellent 🎆 We couldn't find any other words for this location and what we've experienced. The owner was always kind and helpful since we had got in touch with her before our vacation. And her house was great located and in very good condition. We didn't miss anything. This was our first time we didn't need to buy anything except for foods. There were full liquid soap dispensers, dishwasher detergent for everyday, bunch of towels and beachtowels, kitchen papers, bath tissues and clear food wrap, too!!! You can find even different spices in the very good filled shelf at the nice kitchen. We enjoyed the beaches the owner had recommended. We enjoyed Hawaiian fruits every day from her garden. We enjoyed the volcano park according to the owner's recommendation. We tried some restaurants the owner had recommended and we were impressed! Our son said that he wants to stay here forever. So do we. Thank you very much for your sharing and we'll come back!"

  • WOW!!!

    "Over the years, we’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to stay in some lovely villas during our travels, but I must say that the sight that met us when we first opened the stained-glass front door of Maka Nui nearly took our breath away. It is an exceptionally lovely home – with ornate furnishings and exquisite artwork, a fabulous Jacuzzi tub, a huge double shower, a well-appointed kitchen, and a wonderfully comfy king-size bed. The beautiful, rambling interior is surrounded by a screened-in lanai that looks out across the green hillside down onto Kealakekua Bay. We so enjoyed our evenings on the lanai reading – a delightful cool breeze blowing up from the sea, the faint song of the coqui competing with the Hawaiian music we had softly playing in the background. The grounds are gorgeous: acres of coffee trees, fruit trees, and fragrant flowers, with a much-appreciated impeccably-maintained swimming pool next to the house. Candi was such a gracious, considerate host, and welcomed us with a lovely basket of fruit, coffee, and chocolate macadamias. She is such a delightful, friendly soul – immediately there if we needed something or had a question, but otherwise completely respected our privacy. We loved this part of the island – so very lush and tropical. Maka Nui is very private, very quiet, and very safe. Located down from the Captain Cook area, on Napo’opo’o road, it is off the beaten path, yet not very far from good beaches, good snorkeling, shopping, sightseeing, etc. We SO enjoyed our stay there!"

  • Honeymooning Forever

    "Our Honeymoon was truly in paradise. The home was perfect... A showering of warm smells of fruit and flowers filled us as we entered the driveway. Perfectly clean soft cotton sheets invited us to sleep off our flights... On awakening we walked out to our host's beautiful garden and were greeted by the host. A map of the island, suggestions of best restaurants, and things to do and were provided by the gracious host, Jill Ami. Later dressed, we followed Jill Ami down to the beautiful Manini bay. I loved our time, the beauty of the island and the home. Must plan to return soon. Thank you, Jill Ami for everything"

  • We hope we can stay here again some time!

    "We stayed two weeks at Papalani Farm and basked in the healing atmosphere of this cozy farmhouse. We had everything we needed and Nikki was a perfect hostess. We received healing energies from the expert massages (the best any of us had ever had) and the Infrared Sauna. We loved the outdoor shower too. The organic foods from the farm were delightful, and some days we just stayed "home" and enjoyed the books and sweet breeze from the open doors. Nikki told us where to find dolphins and we spent over two hours out in the bay swimming with 30-plus dolphins all around us! Lots of Fun - Lots of Sunshine - Lots of Healing - Lots of Love! PS: Our favorite place to eat lunch was at Rebel's Kitchen in Captain Cook! Valerie"
