Reviews for this vacation home rental in Kailua-Kona, Big Island, Hawaii
the best little vacation home

This home was perfect for my family of 4. Fully equipped. All appliances updated including a washer and dryer. They have first aid stuff, snorkel gear, rafts, maps, even cook ware. Clean and affordable. It offers beauty and ambiance with the plymeria trees lining the driveway and fruit trees in the back. You could really spend your whole vacation just in the house. It is right by the main highway but far enough not to get the highway noise. Jules and Bear make sure everything is taken care of and ready to enjoy. There is even a travelers journal of previous residents to leave suggestions and experiences in. If we return to the big island again we would definantly have this home as our first choice.
What a great decision!

We (three adults and one toddler) truly enjoyed our stay at this house! The open floor plan made it easy to relax and talk while we mingled between our freshly mashed guacamole and the pool. Both bedrooms were roomy and had flat-screen tv's. The master bath has a walk-in closet, which we were able to use as a sleeping area for our toddler; the owners provide a pack & play as well as a crib, and the crib slid right right into the closet with plenty of room to spare. The house it up on a hill, which provides privacy as well as an awesome platform to view Kona's beautiful sunsets. The pool is a bit chilly but you get used to it. Having total privacy on the pool deck is an easy sell. A quick drive and you are in "downtown" Kona, where you can appreciate your good decision not to rent a condo. We were relatively close to the beaches we wanted to hit, but also didn't have far to drive to get to places like the Capt. Cook monument. Overall, no complaints! A great stay in a beautiful house. We can't wait to come back!
These are testimonials directly out of the guest comment book at the house.
This place is amazing! So nice to have our own pool w/great views at the sunset.
Most importantly, thank you so very much for the Happy Birthday sign! That was extremely nice of you. We had a wonderful vacation and will recommend Hale Wela to everyone we know.

We had a great 2 weeks here at Kona - very relaxing. We have actually stayed here before over the past 20 years or so! It is a very nice location. We enjoyed the many geckos and the very industrious spider near the pool table - great to eat breakfast with her by the pool!
We enjoyed a snorkeling excursion with "Sea Paradise" tours & saw lots of whales and dolphins. We also had a wonderful trip with "Paradise Helicopters". Wow! The volcano was erupting and the weather was clear!
If you like Thai food, the best place we found was The Lotus Cafe up behind Costco. All made from scratch - wonderful sauces.
A good source for local dining etc. is the neighbor, Jesse, who cleans the pool on Mon. A great time, sorry I have to go back to long pants!

We had a great time here in Kona. I know the kids will have lifelong memories of our trip. We enjoyed the comfort of staying here at your house and of course the pool was a blast. We saw countless geckos around here and enjoyed their company. We left behind a few necessities and more sand buckets for the beach. Well it's time for us to head back to Alaska, hopefully we won't lose our tans right away.
Jules & Bear thank you so much & HANG LOOSE!

We have recently acquired this beautiful, unique home. It is completely private... the place is all yours. You can keep to yourself or meet the neighbors across the street, if you like. Ask Jesse about nighttime swimming with the manta rays, for an experience you'll never forget. Or ask Keith about his fishing boat charters. The harbor is just down the road. There's so much to do, or if you feel like relaxing, I can't imagine a better place than warm breezy home in Hawaii.
We have fallen in love with this beautiful, Spanish style home that opens up to a tiled lanai, beautiful pool & the ocean beyond. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
