  • Loved It!

    "My experience as a solo traveler staying at Hale Gediminas was wonderful. The location was gorgeous and peaceful. I was able to enjoy coffee each morning to the sound of the ocean and the island waking up. August and Diva lovely hosts. They invited me over for coffee and gave me tips on what to see/do on the island. They invited me to dinner as well. They also provided snorkel gear, and other beach gear for the duration of my stay. Loved the outdoor kitchen. Overall was very impressed with the level of service and accomodations."

  • Two weeks in local paradise

    "We spent two full weeks with our small family in the lower flat... Felt very private, yet welcoming. From Susan advising us on local events to the Gardner offering our kids local coconuts and bananas. The kids loved the pool and hottub, and we all enjoyed snorkeling and tid pool searching at the local beaches."

  • Fantastic property, great location

    "We have stayed at Tara many times over the past six years and it never disappoints. The cottage is furnished to Michael's high standards and is located on a large and beautifully landscaped lot overlooking Kealakekua Bay. Sunsets from the lanai are always spectacular, and mornings are peaceful. World class snorkeling is a short drive away at Two Step and at the Captain Cook Monument (the Monument is accessible by boat tour, kayak, or for the adventurous, on foot from a nearby trailhead - we always take the trail, but pack plenty of water). Captain Cook and Kealakekua offer many great restaurant options and a good supermarket. Michael is a wonderful host, never intrusive but always available and friendly. We would not stay anywhere else on the Big Island and are already trying to figure out when we can get back."

  • QUIET OASIS

    "We very much enjoyed our stay in this vacation home on the west side of the Big Island! It was nothing fancy, just quaint with a beautiful view of the ocean! It was exactly what we needed after a death in our family forced us to reschedule this vacation. (The owner was very gracious in accommodating our revised plans and did not charge us for the changes.) The property was clean and seemed well-maintained. We especially liked the two separate bedrooms so us parents had a separate room from the kids. And the kids each had their own bed. We were surprised by the catchment water system that they have but were supplied with bottled water for our drinking needs by the owner. Thank you. The hillside community is peaceful and safe. As others mentioned, this house has a steep driveway, so we parked at the end of it and walked down the steps alongside the driveway and then up the steps alongside the house to the front door. The home is far from grocery stores and restaurants but we had planned for that. We absolutely loved the Fruit Stand for most of our grocery needs. The home made a great base for our exploring the island from Kona to the Southern Point to Volcanoes National Park. One note, the pictures made it seem that the kayak for use was a 3 person one, but it is not. It only holds 1 person safely. We did use it a few times. The pebble beach that is at the bottom of the hill in this community is quite nice and a great place to swim, snorkel and kayak. We also made use of the beach chairs and mats and snorkeling gear! One day when we stayed more local, we were thrilled to see a gray seal swim up to a small snorkeling beach in Captain Cook! We would recommend this home to anyone wanting to explore the island, enjoy some peace and quiet and doesn't mind driving for food and supplies."
