Description from owner
Hale Kai means "Home by the Sea". You will learn the true meaning of "Oceanfront" as you step outside this (non-smoking) home which was built exactly 20 feet from the ocean. Adventurers will love exploring the coast with kayaks which come with the house or enjoy snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking, fishing, surfing or swimming right outside your door. Less adventurous souls may choose to just relax and enjoy a glass of wine and a good book while sunbathing on their private white sand beach. You will love lounging on the seaside lanai entertained by the locals...spinner dolphins, sea turtles and humpback whales.
Hale Kai is a very serene, relaxing and romantic setting in Miloli'i Beach (Where the Sun meets the Sea). It is conveniently located halfway between Kona and Hawaii Volcanos National Park.
The plantation style home has 3000 square feet of breathtaking views from any part of the house and is nestled on the edge of the Pacific Ocean surrounded by blue water, white sand and some of the most pristine coral reefs in all the islands. The house features two large shaded outdoor living lanais. The upstairs is a wrap around tiled lanai overlooking the tropical fish, dolphins, turtles and whales below. Sleep inside or outside while being lulled to sleep by the sounds of the sea and watching the moon slip into the Pacific.
Hale Kai is an hour drive from the sirens, traffic and stress of Kona proper. Miloli'i is known throughout the islands for its fishing and clear waters. Hale Kai offers some of the most undeveloped stretches of coastline on the Big Island, secret beaches to explore and plenty of sunshine to enjoy. Seasonal whale watching is spectacular. World class snorkeling, scuba diving and sea kayaking is right outside your door. You may also get a chance to swim with the local sea turtles and spinner dolphins, a real treat in itself!

“Great spot on the coast”
If you want a place a little out of the ordinary on the Big Island, Hale Kai is it. A spectacular location at the edge of the lave flow in the Milolii beach community,right above the ocean. Almost feels like you are in the ocean if you are in the lanai when the waves come up. Snorkeling and kayaking right out the door or minutes away. A beautiful house as well, with all the amenities, artistic touches, and well furnished. About 30 minutes south of Captain Cook, so easy accessibility to restaurants and markets. And easy accessibility to south Kona coast attractions, as well as the Kilauea volcano. Very attentive owner and manager. Great getaway!
Owner's reply: Thank you so much Dave! We so appreciate the fact that you see the raw beauty of Makahiki Point and enjoy the closeness with Mother Nature. Its why we built Hale Kai to start with. Also thanks for your suggestions for adding some things to our "Get Ready" list. I think it will make all guest stays just a little better!
“Outstanding Oceanfront Home off the beaten path!”
Stayed from June 12 thru the 21st, with the kids and their spouses - 6 in all! All loved the house and it's location, it's decor and ammenities. Road to get to it is a bit challenging, but worth it. Just a great place to unwind or call your home when you travelled the island. Thanks again!
“Serene and beautiful”
This is my second stay at Hale Kai, but it certainly won't be my last. If you like crowds, traffic, and congestion, don't go there, but if you enjoy peace and quiet, privacy and relaxation, and nature's beauty, check it out, and I'm sure you won't be disappointed. The house is literally on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, and you fall asleep each night listening to the waves. On the most recent visit, we saw many whales close to the shore. Nice sunsets also. The house is on the end of the road, so traffic is minimal, and privacy is ensured. The location allows access to other Big Island features (e.g. Hawaii Volcanos National Park, Waipio Valley) with reasonable-length day trips. It's also fully equipped with most anything you might ever need, and overall space is more than ample. That includes a lanai/porch around the whole house. My two visits were two of the best vacations I've ever had. Seriously. No exaggeration.
Owner's reply: We love to share our house with other nature lovers! The reason we originally built the house was an amazing 4 hour swim with wild dolphins we had while kayak camping about 3 miles down from the house. We wanted to be able to share that with our own kids and since then we have. There hasn't been a trip over to Hale Kai without tears in everyone's eyes as we pull out of the driveway for the last time. We all are so in LOVE with Hale Kai we just can't get over there enough. My advice... stay as long as you can. You won't regret it!
“A beautiful home in a stunning location”
Milolii is secluded and peaceful. It is a place for those who want to get away from it all and for those for whom a 35 minute trip is required to get to 'civilization'. The house's location is stunning at the top of a thirty foot high cliff with waves breaking below. It's appointments and furnishings were classy and stylish. The kitchen and its utensils were top calibre as was the tv/sound system. We wish we had far more than the four days we had to stay in this wonderful house and location. Everything promised and more
My guests and I had a wonderful time at Hale Kai. The stay was relaxing and re-energizing for me. The remoteness and rugged landscape was daunting at first but as I realized I didn't really want to travel very often away from the house, it suited me just fine. The pounding surf sounded like it was coming through the wall on the first night but after that it lulled me to sleep. I had similar comments from everyone. The kitchen was great and so well stocked. The only thing that did not work was the ice maker. Danielle was there when we arrived and was a joy to interact with. I would stay here again and will definitely recommend it to my friends!
Owner Supplied Testimonials
We stayed at Hale Kai for almost two weeks and it wasn't nearly long enough. The water was super clear and we were able to swim with dolphins just down the coast from the house. We really enjoyed our Big Island stay at Hale Kai
Our family had a fantastic time here. Thank you so much. We loved the local artists you showcased and ended up buying some prints in town. Our kids had a ball at Honomalino and Milolii Beach Park.
We caught fish off the property and had them on the grill in minutes. The only problem with Hale Kai is that we ran out of time. Next time we will be sure to stay more than five days. Thanks again.
My husband and I really want to thank you for having us. The full moon fell on our anniversary this year and in the entire world I don't think we could have found a better place to crack open a bottle of champagne.
We loved how private and secluded the house is. We spent a lot of time in the chaise lounges relaxing. The outdoor lava shower was great...next time we will go kayaking!
Everything was perfect!

Dear Mike and Jamie,
You guys are the best. Thanks for helping us out and being our telephone tour guides. We had a great time kayaking and loved exploring the area. Your ideas were wonderful, thanks for sharing directions to some of your secret spots.
We were able to land the kayaks at Okoe Bay and did see some Spinner Dolphins close up. The whales did elude us again but we will be back next year and try again.
