  • Big Island Christmas Adventure

    "Let me start this review by saying that I started my search for lodging much later than I should have. My wife and I had never visited Hawaii during the holiday's. Luckily for us, Gayle's condo was still available. Having stayed in Keauhou during our previous trips, we prefer this location, which adds to excitement of visiting Kona in the evening, and reaching out to all the destinations during the day. The condo was very comfortable and well setup. The teenage boys immediately took over the upstairs, where there is a fabulous 60" TV, and of course is closer to the refrigerator. My wife and I claimed the downstairs, which has one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. There is no AC in the unit, but the airflow, combined with ample fans, made the evenings very comfortable. The condo is well stocked with towels, linens, and other essentials. I especially appreciated the washer/dryer. In summary, I was very happy with the condo, the location, the view from the lanai(s), the swimming pools, and lastly, with the interaction with Gayle before and during our stay."

  • Outstanding Stay

    "Our family of 5 had a great stay at this property on the Big Island. The condo was spacious, well appointed, comfortable, and offered a great view from the lanai (especially at sunset). It is very close to shopping and some great snorkeling beaches. We also did a day trip to volcanoes national park. The owner was terrific to work with and provided tons of information about the island. They also had a lot of beach/snorkel gear for guests to use which was a huge convenience. We travel quite extensively and use VRBO for vacation rentals and would highly recommend this property."

  • Great Location and great amenities

    "Just got back from two fantastic weeks at Mele Kai @ Kahalu’u Beach. Two years ago we stayed at the property next door, Hale O Makai, also owned by Simmy and Michael with a smaller party of five. This year we needed more space to accommodate 6 adults and 3 children under 4 and were lucky enough to rent Mele Kai. Not only are all the pictures and descriptions spot on, Simmy and Michael are wonderful to work with and truly go above and beyond to make your stay unforgettable. If you don’t see something that you can’t live without, mention it to Simmy and she has always been able to accommodate. Lots of equipment for beach going including boogie boards, coolers, umbrellas, and currently beach chairs with shoulder straps so you can really load up for the day. There were toys galore for the little ones for both land and water. The wading pool shared by the two houses was really appreciated in the heat of July to cool down. The lanai is the highlight of the house and she has a little child gate to close one end so the kids didn’t get away from us. I know the nearby amenities are listed with the house amenities, but I want to push them all anyway since they are just as important as the house. There is shoreline access almost directly across from the house with a tiny sand area and, depending on tides and experience, you can get in the water there, but it is a rock entrance. The sandy beach park is 4 minutes walk away…or 7 if you meander looking at the flowers and great water views between the houses on the way. Kahalu’u is a great beach park with multiple water entrances and depending on the tides a nice little pool forms below one of the lifeguard stands, great for sitting and playing with little ones in the water while gentle waves wash through occasionally. There was also a food truck with snacks and the all important SHAVE ICE! Turtle viewing from above and below water is almost guaranteed. When I was coordinating this trip with multiple families I used Google Earth to show them distances and where the sand was. This location and rental was exactly what our large family needed with plenty of private/quite areas for those needing naps or less family time! Already repeat customers and Simmy will be the first person we contact on our next trip."
