We stayed with 10 members of extended family in June 2022 for 9 nights at Puhala Hale. Overall, the experience was terrific. The house was beautiful. Well stocked with everything you need.The Best part of this property is the amazing ocean view. The pool is extremely small.Our 7 year old enjoyed it-, he's the only one. The road down and the driveway are extremely steep,narrow, and windy. Also,if you Stay here,be prepared to drive a lot to do things.Kona is a good hour away,and it's the closest! Also,the local beach that was spoken of we did not get to because it was. 8 mile hike to get to it. That aside, this rental fit our needs a d we recommend it especially for large families.

We all loved our stay. Our only issue was not being able to find the local beach. In our attempt to find it we were harassed by some locals so we gave up looking.

We had two families together at the house and it was perfect. The house was well equipped with anything you needed. The beach close to the house was our favorite! No crowd., dolphins and snorkeling. Make sure to wear your sneakers as you will not have happy feet it you try reef shoes or flips. Great vacation.

This is a beautiful house in a fairly remote area, perfect for anyone wanting privacy and quiet time. It's on a large property located on a steep hill overlooking the fishing village of Milolii and the view is panoramic. The kitchen is well-equipped for self-catering, and the common areas, both indoor and the outdoor lanai, are spacious. There is a nice games room with a pool table and some games. There is no railing around most of the deck, not ideal for small children. There are a few fruit stands with cheap and excellent seasonal fruit very nearby. The nearest groceries and restaurants are at Ocean View, about a half hour drive, and they are very limited and expensive! Good to stock up in Kona before you arrive. The nearest beach, at Honomalina Bay, is gorgeous with very few people. It's about a 10 minute drive to the coast and then a 20 minute moderate hike to the beach. No amenities and no life guard. The next nearest beach is at Ho'okena, about a 35 minute drive north; lots of amenities. Great snorkeling at both beaches, but be sure to bring your own gear - there really isn't any functional gear at the house.

We enjoyed staying at this house: magnificient view on the ocean, very well equipped with pool and pool. The common areas are comfortable. We would have prefered a home closer to the best beaches such as Hapuna and Magic, but probably not possible to have such a house closer... We recommend this house.

The home is nice and the view is great, but there were more things broken than working unfortunately. The internet wasn’t working for 3 days...contacted the owner after troubleshooting (per her request) only to be met with her yelling at me that she was sleeping. I had a hard time getting over that to enjoy the rest of the trip. I had no idea where she lived, and called her when I returned back to the home, per her request. This was very unacceptable. The television only got 1 channel, and the Xbox didn’t turn on at all. Also, the blender was broken. Mind you we had 5 teenagers with us...and was trying to look up directions and book excursions while in the home. I would say she needs a house manager and to equip the home better, especially if you are going to put these items on the website as available. The beach the owner recommended was not only a few minutes away and was impassable as the latter part of the “trail” was underwater past jagged rocks and around several “private property” signs. We were able to find a wonderful beach about 30 minutes away, however, and loved exploring this beautiful island.

Thank you, Nancy for sharing your beautiful home with our family. We loved the outdoor patio to enjoy the amazing ocean views, watch the sunsets and dip our feet into the pool during the warm afternoons. The kids brought their own tablets, and they enjoyed playing in the billiard room a few times. We cooked meals, read books, lounged and explored the island. Your house is spacious and offered so many amenities to make us feel at home. We loved watching the geckos, the goats eating on the hillside plus the cats who came to visit in the evenings. Your home was perfect for our family to have our own rooms and congregate in the kitchen and living room. We wished we had a longer vacation. We strongly recommend renting this house to anybody. It was so peaceful and quiet. The driveway is steep, but we figured it out. We can't say enough about your home. Thank you for making our family vacation one of our favorites. Aloha. - Barbara and family, Milton-Freewater, OR

We flew into Kona Airport and drove directly to the house. The numbers at the top of the drive are not lighted and were a little hard to see in the dusk. But what a treat awaited us at the end of the cement driveway. There were 6 adults and 4 elementary school aged children who had space to enjoy the home. We would add bug spray to the list of things to bring and we left some behind to share with the next guests. There is no air conditioning but it was never a concern. There are fans everywhere and the evenings cool down in the lava mountain. We spent time at the volcano, took advantage of the hints on bakery, restaurants and shopping that were part of the listing. We all hated our time to end! Beaches are convenient and we did snorkeling and kayaking nearby. Our kids were lucky enough to see spinning dolphins and swam with turtles on a black beach. We bought local fruit and fish and ate out on the patio at night. Great kitchen, pool room and washer and dryer. The water provided was perfect and we refilled it for the next visitors. Only $1.50 in Ocean View nearby. We also had 2 dinners at Mele's on Route 11 about 6 miles away. Great service and fresh fish. Strong w-ifi and great secure internet connection. This was a family celebration and this VRBO made it even better.

If you like quiet and peaceful...this is for you! Great views of the ocean and very comfortable setting. The hammock and watching the birds at the bird feeder were my favorites! Our teens (4) loved the pool table...didn't use the pool as we were out doing the touristy thing most of the day. It was nice coming back to comfortable beds after long days of sightseeing. The owners have provided most everything you could ask for...washer, dryer, beach towels, even a wine refrigerator!! Mahalo Nancy for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. It was a pleasure talking with you as well as Carol. She was a gem!

This house is beautiful! We wanted a vacation place near South Point and not overrun with tourists but at the same time, we wanted to be close enough to visit both the Hilo and Kona sides of the island, the location was perfect. Our flight arrived late and GPS did not work so I advise printing directions in advance and maybe using google to familiarize yourself with the area a little bit. My sister freaked about the driveway being so steep and navigating the rental car in the parking area was tricky. However, we had two men on this trip so we just tossed them the keys. The only other thing I would mention is that the pool table equipment wasn't in good condition. The cues were missing tips or broken. We managed to salvage a single stick and took turns which was great since we played pool almost every night. Everything else was beautiful. The house is huge and lovely, the kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked with everything we needed. We stopped at the Walmart in Kona on the way in for staple items since we were staying for several days and then took advantage of the small grocery store in Ocean View (best prices FOR SURE in the area). We cooked most of our meals in the kitchen or on the grill, only eating out a few times during our stay. The view was spectacular and I pretty much lived in the hammock outside my bedroom. I would absolutely rent this house again.
