3 bathroom Sleeps
Discover how to REALLY relax! Would you like to relax in your own peaceful pool that you share with no one, listening to your favorite tunes, while contemplating the vast expanse of the ocean right in front of you - amazing whales, spinner dolphins and colorful fish, the sunsets, and complete serenity, for less than the price of a resort hotel room? Then our home will be perfect for you. If you are like us, you want to do nothing but relax and disconnect while on vacation. We don’t like resorts, eating every meal out, sitting around a pool with 100 other people. Rick’s Place is a cozy, romantic home, perfect for two. Unwind, enjoy each other’s company, and disconnect from your crazy busy life. We suggest stopping in town for a few groceries. Spend your days sitting around in the solar-heated pool, reading on the lanai or sitting by the sea wall. Watch the whales jump in the winter months (they will wake you up at night during whale season!), Enjoy cooking dinner on the gas barbeque or in our well-equipped kitchen while enjoying an icy cocktail. Milolii sunsets are the highlight of the day- no two are ever the same. Turn off all the lights and lay out on the chaise lounges and look at the moon and the Milky Way at night. Showering in the outdoor shower with the ocean breeze blowing on you is refreshing and revitalizing. There is good Wi-Fi and Direct TV on smart TVs, as well as a Blu-Ray player. There is a viewing area on the cliff where you can sit and contemplate the sea while enjoying your morning coffee or your evening libations. The Kona fishing fleet aims for the waters in front of the house, so sometimes you can witness a hook-up while staring out to sea (we provide binoculars). You can look down and see tropical fish and the occasional turtle swim by. Sometimes the surf is high and the waves crash against the cliff dramatically. One guest called the high surf “Hawaiian fireworks” which is a great description. The drive down from the highway takes you from 1500 ft. elevation to sea level across a lava flow. We remember our first impression! It’s a long, narrow, winding ride, but there are spectacular views on the way down. If you want to go to town every night or do a lot of sightseeing, the drive may be inconvenient. For a day trip every few days, it is no big deal. There is easy access to water and great snorkeling a short walk north of the house at the Milolii Beach Park. There ...

Really quiet and seemed very safe as never locked doors.

Rick’s Place is stunning! The views, the amenities, and Super Host Dan made this stay fantastic!
I am a VRBO owner myself, and I left feeling like I need to step up my game 👍
The mood is set from the get-go with soft Hawaiian music surrounding the pool, lanai and overlook where whales and dolphins make almost daily visits.
The location was ideal for checking out roadside stands for lemons, limes, avocado and Mac nuts. All the favorites!
Five ⭐️ all the way!

My wife and I still can’t believe how amazing a stay we had. Despite a rainy week for the island, we still had beautiful sunsets/rainbows and totally relaxed looking at the ocean from the large lanai and swimming pool. We saw spinner dolphins and humpbacked whales come up very close. The outdoor shower was amazing and the house itself is well appointed and clean. We were able to connect our cell phones via Wi-Fi to the indoor/outdoor stereo system to play our favorite music. As others have noted, you can hear the whales at night spouting and tail slapping. Plan on eating most of your meals in as there are limited choice nearby. Shop in Kona before you head down to the property. Dan was very attentive and took care of us during a short power outage. Nice neighbors let us fish off their property and gave us tips on places to see. A great place to relax and recharge.

My husband and I spent 2 weeks here for our honeymoon and it was amazing! The house was even better then the pictures! We saw whales a few times right off the sea wall and the pool heats up pretty quickly for nice afternoon swimming. Dan was super helpful with anything questions we had. Would highly reccomend Ricks Place!
