The space

a Hideaway quiet and peaceful, set in an authentic fishing village. Unwind and relax from city life and packaged vacations. Three bedroom, three baths, and game room. A large Lanai runs the length of the house for dolphin and whale watching. Have dinner on a beautiful Lanai and watch the incredible sunsets enjoy the warm climate with cool coastal breezes. One and half blocks to water access for swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, scuba diving and fishing. There are kayaks and boogie boards ... at the house.

The Milolii area is famous for deep sea fishing, and you can watch the fishing boats or go out yourself.Whales frequent Papa bay from December through mid- March.The beautiful secluded Honomolino Beach is close by-short walk along the coast from Milolii State Park-watch the spinner dolphins, snorkel with the fish in the coral, and maybe see a sea turtle or a rare Hawaiian monk seal. There are wild goats over on Umi street and the king's hiking trails is a 3 minute walk away. Many people walk the neighborhood, also. There are tide pools in the village and there is a local beach in town. The water is a two minute hike to where you can get in it Robinson Caruso style. Guests will need to sign a separate rental agreement upon check in; contact me with any questions please. Daniel will check you in and out of the house. His phone number is on the refrigerator. Since I don't have a deposit please have him do this. POne of the nearest supermarkets is about 30 minutes away at mile marker 77 south of the house; Malama market is next to L and M Barbecue. Also, you can get gas here or across the street by the Ace Hardware. There are breakfast places, a bakery, a coffee house and another supermarket and gas station. Every Saturday there is a market in the am- try the coffee - it is a local blend and great!

There are boogie boards, snorkel gear and beach toys in the closet on the first floor. There are a gazillion DVDS and netflix in the house. The kayaks are great! There is a play station in the lower master and WII is in a box in the closet- feel free to use.

Interaction with guests

Most of the year I am in California so my interaction with guests is via email but I am happy to answer any and all questions. There is an orange folder titled Welcome Book on the desk or bar with ideas of what to do plus there are guidebooks in the house. Please leave them for future guests when you leave. Daniel's latest favorite thing is manta ray diving on the Hang Loose Boat which is north of Kona. Talk to him about it if you are interested! Everything is a drive on the Big Island so be prepared for that!

Other things to note

Seeing the dolphins in Papa bay and the humpback whales in the winter are a great experience. Also, there are wild goats over on Umi Street. There are tide pools before you reach the community center on the right side. Buy fish in the village or up at the top of the hill- sushi grade Ahi tuna is wonderful! Ono is also a great fish to cook in butter and enjoy.

The house is fabulous, Cheryl is a great host, the location wasn't for us. Cheryl was a great host. Good communications, and friendly. Great to have bottled water supplied in the heat of Hawaii! The house is amazing. Spacious, comfy, well equipped. A fantastic holiday home for a couple getting away, a group having an adventure, or a family spending time together. The kind of house you could settle into for a few weeks, and not feel cramped. The location is good in some ways. It is between Kona and the volcano, which means you could explore in either direction. But it wasn't what we were looking for. I should have done more research. We wanted surf, easy swimming, and not a lot of driving. We were only in Hawaii for five days, and wanted some R&R. We couldn't easily access the water from here, and needed to drive to explore. Other reviewers didn't seem to have this problem, and certainly the guest book in the host was full of glowing reviews from people who had a great time and swam nearby very happily. We actually ended up leaving after one night, instead of the booked three. Only because we didn't do enough research before booking, and the location didn't suit us. As I said, the house is great, Cheryl is great, and the location will suit some people really well. Just not us.

Response from Cheryl:
Thanks for your review- I hope I told you house was an hour south of Kona- I always do that so people know. It's actually centrally located for the island as it is 63 minutes to volcano , 45 to Punuluu Beach, Green Sand beach and Southpoint and it takes 6 hours to drive around the island. There isn't a beach close to the house but there's a great swimming, snorkeling hole a two minute walk from the house. That's why I changed the name of the house from the Aloha Beach House to Fantastic Sunsets at Makai Hideaway. Everyone loves the house but it is rural, remote and quiet and if you want a snady beach right outside your door- you have to drive 5 minutes into the village of Milolii and then hike 15 minutes into a beutiful beach but I love this place!

The house is in an amazing place in front of the ocean, fully equipped. AirBnB photos do not do justice to the house, which is wonderful. The location is perfect for discovering the island. During our stay, we really felt at home. Cheryl is a perfect host.

Cheryl and Daniel were great hosts. This house was exactly as described and very spacious for our group of 4 adults and one child. We loved the ocean views. Just be aware that it's a long drive down the winding road and the house sits on an old volcanic flow so it's pretty barren and hot. One of the neatest things is that it's steps away from the oldest remaining fishing village on the island.

Response from Cheryl:
Thank you Kate for your review. I put in my overview about the ten minute windy road down off highway 11. Glad you checked out the village! There's a great kid swimming area there. If you don't mind I will send you a request to review on my two other sites. Thanks for renting the house! There are fans all over the house and I am often working there so the heat doesn't bother me. That's the tropics!

This is a beautiful home in a quiet sub division. It was so nice to wake up every morning to the sound of the ocean and the birds hanging out at Daniels. As others have mentioned, it is not the white sandy beach resort, but exactly what we were looking for away from that tourist scene. Cheryl has set up the house with all you could need and more. We were very comfortable and it was easy to settle right in and feel at home. Just a side note: If you are in need of a chiropractor, (yes, unfortunately I was) Mark Cohen in Ocean View saved my vacation! We found the drive up and down the hill to the sub division (switch back lane, lol) an opportunity for jokes, laughter and a great view. All in all, a great time and super home to hang out and a good base camp for excursions. Thanks Cheryl for sharing your beautiful home !

I am a first grade teacher who enjoys teaching young children. I grew up in the four season of the Mid-West and saw the beauty of living in California. I was born in Venezuela and have always worked on both English and Spanish, and am able to teach both languages. My dream was to have a home in Hawaii. I've have spent the last few years traveling between CA and many of the Hawaiian Islands in search of the perfect home. We are settling on the shores of this quaint village. I am married with one 15 year old son, and one dogs. I love to hike and the kings trail is close to this house. I love nature and there are wild goats over on Umi street. I love to watch movies and there is netflix at the house. I love geckos and there are brown and green ones at the house. I like deals and the Aloha Beach house is one! There is a king bed now in the master- everytime we go we make the house nicer! It's nicer than our house in California. The master bedroom downstairs is very large and has a queen bed. House can accomodate large groups; I just have to charge extra due to utilities. We get lots of family groups!

This beach house has been a 30 year dream in the making! It is always so incredible when you see your dreams come true with belief and hard work. Please come and share the Fantastic Sunsets at Makai Hideaway- The sunsets are phenomenal and the snorkeling / swimming hole is a two minute walk from the house. The beach is a 15 minute hike from the community center in Milolii. I just enjoyed Easter services with the local people and it was wonderful at the little yellow church in the village. It really is a special place set near the last hawaiian fishing village
