    Hale Honu is a two-story, two bedroom three bath, plus ground level rumpus & den room , TRULY OCEANFRONT home with extraordinary views of the ocean from all rooms of the home. The house is designed with an upstairs 2 bedroom/2 bath main house (plus a private day bed) , and a large (650 sq feet) rumpus room with full bathroom and wet bar on the ground level with a separate entrance. This is a lengthy detailed description of Hale Honu… there are several unique features of this house worth learning about! You might read in some older reviews about the ground level space being rented separately. That is no longer an option. Your booking is for the entire property with no other guests present.

    The entire house has undergone a major remodel, including all new windows, bedrooms and baths, kitchen, and exterior. The main living area of Hale Honu ('the upstairs house') is on the second level, and offers two large bedrooms (with really comfortable king beds and down pillows), plus an alcove with a full bed. Upstairs are two full baths, and a sunny, open kitchen and living area, with a fully retractable glass wall that opens onto our 450 sq. ft. lanai, making the kitchen, living/dining room and oceanfront lanai one contiguous open air space. The kitchen is a gourmet's delight with a 2022 new induction range and oven, stainless steel appliances with a new 4 door GE Profile french door refrigerator, tons of cabinets, a huge kitchen island with power supply, pantry, and reverse osmosis water purification system (no more plastic water bottles!), plenty of workspace and everything a serious cook ...

    Our family enjoyed the property and location. We used the kitchen every day! The bedrooms were good and comfortably fits 8-9 people. The Lanai is very comfortable and a great spot for sunsets. We did have a problem with sea urchin bites in the lava rock between the house and ocean, otherwise the property was great for our family.

    Beautiful home, plenty of space, the upstairs lanai was perfect for watching dolphins, whales and sea turtles! The waves were a bit loud during high tides, but then you are right on the beach, so take advantage of the ear plugs they provide if you need them. The owners were great.

    Awesome location. Fabulous sunsets and sunrise. Comfortable home with great outdoor living space. The elders stayed downstairs in the studio suite and the young people stayed upstairs. Most of our activity was on the large lanai upstairs. We used the large round table to dine and play games. The sofas there were great for a short nap. You could see yellow tang in the ocean from the lanai each morning! The kitchen with it’s huge island was great! Very well supplied The appliances are all brand new and got a good workout each morning! Our group of 10 were well organized and with stations around the island at each meal, eating was made very easy. We changed our departure flights to later so we would have time to leave the home in order and some of the laundry done, ie beach towels. We started the laundering of the sheets and towels. The family thoroughly enjoyed their stay and would stay here again. Peter and Darla were very cordial and helpful, perfect hosts. They definitely embrace the aloha spirit! Many mahalos and a warm aloha, Claire Graham and Ohana

    Property is great with convenient access to the west side of the island. Cliff jumping a few minutes drive away, beaches, snorkeling, etc. Well stocked with beach equipment and kitchen accessories. Many great restaurants nearby! Great place for a vacation!

    Spent 10 days with the wife and kids. Close to everything. Like, walking distance close. 2 minute walk to Magic Sands. 3 miles to downtown Kona. House is stocked with everything you need for a day at the beach or in the water. Peter and Darla were responsive. Check in/out was smooth. Hot tub was excellent. Sunset views were epic. Already planning our return trip lol.

    Great location in Kona with amazing views from every room and space in the house. The home is well equipped with a great cooking area with the best electrical stove I have ever used, I normally hate electric stoves (prefer gas). The waters are very clear and clean here, nice aqua blue, easy to see schools of yellow tang all day long. The upstairs rooms are more modern than below, but the downstairs is fine, even though dated. Kona is a humid area, and we encountered bugs, but only really an issue at night. The first night, unfortunately, we left the windows open without screens and went to dinner, just to arrive to a lot of mostly fruit flies. Anyhow, after we smartened up, a few still snuck in, but the wave calmed down (as we were in very warm/humid week). There are plenty of geckos, but that is to be expected in Hawaii pretty much everywhere. The unit is well equipped with fans everywhere, a portable A/C in the lower unit. I adjusted to climate in a day and didn't use the A/C as the fan breeze combined with normal airflow is just fine. The beds are very comfy, was pleasantly surprised as we don't normally sleep on good quality mattresses in home rentals. Peter, the owner, was immediately responsive to our questions. The house is a stone's throw from Magic Sands beach, which is a tiny but amazing beach...just walk there first thing in the morning to avoid LARGE crowds. All in all, we had a very memorable stay on the Big Island with this home being are base of operation.
