  • Truely Magical!

    "Thinking of paradise, then book into Hula Cove! We had a wonderful 2 night stay. We were welcomed with gifts for our 40th wedding anniversary which was really sweet. The house has everything you need and well supplied, just as described. To be able to swim in the pools before breakfast and have them all to yourself is amazing. We were the envy of people visiting the pools. We trekked to the flowing lava at Kalapana one evening and this was awesome. The only downside for us, being from England, was the house was very hot for us only having fans for ventilation, but that should not put you off?"

  • Fantastic vacation home!

    "My family have been coming to the Big Island every year since the late 90's. We love the Hilo side of the island and have stayed at many homes in the Kapoho area. This year, we opted to try something different and were THRILLED that we did! We spent 9 days at Kai Malolo in Pahoa and next year will spend our entire 2 weeks there. The home is beautiful and so well appointed, we wanted for nothing. The grounds are gorgeous and so well maintained--lush green lawns, gardenias planted right outside the bedroom windows that scented the rooms at night. Right out the back door is a quick hike over a lava field to the most breathtaking ocean views! The lovely neighbors brought us fresh cut bananas and coconuts. The home is so close to everything but at the same time so secluded--Old Hawaii at its finest! A beautiful drive down a narrow road with Zen stones balanced perfectly back dropped by the crashing surf was breathtaking. The pool was perfect! The house is filled with beautiful furniture and artwork--we fell asleep every night to the sounds of the ocean and awakened to beautiful sunrises~~it really was a slice of heaven and we're already booking for next year---before the secret gets out!"

  • Fabulous property, beautiful site - highly recommended.

    "We had a marvelous 5 nights at this gorgeous property. The setting is spectacular -- it’s literally right on a collection of ponds and inlets, with kayaking and snorkeling available literally at your feet. The property itself is beautiful and in excellent condition, filled with beautiful Indonesian wood furniture, and the setting is quite private. We were two families with teen children traveling together, and we had a marvelous time sitting on the beautiful balconies staring at the ocean, snorkeling in the pond, watching the puffer fish get fed, and taking excursions to nearby tide pools, farmer’s markets, towns, as well as venturing out for zip lining, and hiking in volcano national park. We divided our Big Island stay between this property and a hotel on the Kona side, and we loved the mixture of sights and experiences, but this property definitely won the ‘specialness’ award. The kitchen was equipped for all basic cooking needs, and there’s a nice outdoor grill which we put to use. The master suite is gorgeous. There are two other bedrooms upstairs that share a bathroom, one with a queen bed and one with twins. The bathroom they share is spacious, though has only one sink. Downstairs, there’s a separate room with twins, and a fully-plumbed outdoor bathroom (quite luxurious, though not fully waterproof in the rain, and to get there requires walking 20 feet outdoors). Wifi was a little slow (for all 8 of us) but that kept us from being tethered to our devices. The property was very clean, and there were plenty of towels and an assortment of snorkeling equipment to borrow (though for our group of 8, a couple more snorkels would have been a plus). The ceiling fans kept everything cool and comfortable There’s lots to do within a 30 minute drive, but depending on what you’re looking for, it could be a little remote -- there’s not anywhere to walk to to grab a coffee or a meal. The nearest town is Pahoa, about 15 minutes away, and Hilo is about another 25-30 minutes beyond that. But it’s a fabulous base for both exploring and for relaxing and enjoying the views and the water, and it’s a truly memorable, gorgeous property. Highly recommended!"

  • Very Unique Spot!

    "My husband and I spent 3 nights at this cottage after spending time on the Kohala Coast. It was definitely a reprieve from the large resorts, and we haven't been so relaxed in a long time! The area is different from anything we have seen, with the warm thermal pools, lava beaches and lush greenery. The pool is amazing, spotlessly clean and very safe. We actually enjoyed the pool more than snorkeling in the famous champagne pools across the street. Easy access to the Volcano National Park, where we spent one day. The house is very clean, and includes all of the necessities for cooking (which we did all but one night, where we went into Pahoa for Thai food). Our favourite was sitting on the huge lanai with our coffee and books. Although TV is provided, we watched very little as the lanai was so much more appealing. Ilse was a great host, her communication was prompt and she greeted us upon our arrival. Instructions for check in were thorough and she also included information on the area, shopping, etc... We would recommend if you are looking for a quiet retreat in a very unique spot!"
