  • Great place for a family reunion

    "We had a wonderful week with my two brothers and their families. We had 11 total - the adults stayed up on the second floor and all the kids bunked down below, which was a great setup. Hale Honu is perfectly situated right on the ocean and we went snorkeling almost every day right in front of the house, or next door at Magic Sands. We ate in a lot and used the BBQ grill and 2nd floor deck to eat dinner and watch the sun go down. Peter and Darla have stocked the laundry room with tons of snorkeling gear, boogie boards, beach towels, etc. so you don't need to bring anything - and their instructions are really meticulous and detailed. Only thing I would caution is if you are a light sleeper, the ocean is pretty loud, especially if you have to leave the windows open because it is hot. For us it was not a bother and I would not hesitate to come back in the future."

  • A Trip to Paradise

    "Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We booked this house as it was a perfect location and a great price. First note is the pictures do not do the house justice. Yes the house is older/bit dated, but perfect for what you need. How nice to have a full kitchen, we cooked a few meals at the house even grilled one night. The grounds are stunning. We all had our own rooms with an ocean view. We were able to go to bed to the sounds of the ocean each night. Each morning we would have coffee on the lanai and watch the tour boats head out for the day, some snorkel boats stopping out from our house bringing in dolphins to watch. The Queen's pool was a nice touch with sea life in it. We were close to town a great location. The hot tub was a nice touch as well. The manager answered all my pesky questions, I had allot. It was very hard to leave, as by the end of our vacation it felt like home. I cannot wait to go back"

  • It doesn't get any better than this!

    "I am so glad that we choose this house for our stay on the Big Island! The pictures are great but doesn't compare to the experience of seeing it for yourself. The house is truly made for outdoor living and you would not want to be inside with the view of Lyman's Bay in front of you. We woke up every morning, ate breakfast outside and watched the surfers and admired the visiting Honus while we drank our coffee. I wasn't as adventurous as other reviewers about going into the bay but I did enjoy the tidal pool. There were multiple beaches just minutes away for my snorkeling pleasure. I was a little concerned about the noise from the road but the sound of the waves melts any car noise away. There is a room air conditioner for those nights that might be just a little too humid for sleeping with the windows open. The bed was amazingly comfortable - and I don't say that very often! There is also a very comfortable and large daybed for those evenings you want to relax in front of the TV (which would be pretty rare). We had an absolutely fabulous time visiting the area and having a beautiful and peaceful place to relax really made the vacation a memorable one!"
