Home filled with love for the whole family wit beautiful scenic views of the ocean & island.

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed their stay at the house. Waking up each morning to the roar of the ocean, birds chirping, and friendly geckos coming by to say "hello" on the deck while drinking Kona coffee. The home has all the comforts one could hope for for an island get away.

Pebble beach was just down the hill & just a blast for the whole family. It was peaceful, quiet, with not much traffic. Hookena beach (state park) was great as well, yet the family preferred the beach down the street.

Royal Kona Resort Luau was the best with history and authentic dancing.

It was the best trip and we will be returning again soon. Mahalo & Aloha 💙

Just what our family needed

  • 4 of 5

Hale Kumu Kai was a great fit for a gathering of our whole family crew over the Christmas holidays - we are an active hiking/exploring/history/boogieboarding family and we also LOVE to cook fresh meals to we knew ritzy hotels were not our bag. The home had plenty of space and the location was "real island" that made us feel more like residents than tourists. Our crew was less inclined to drive back up through Kalua-Kona for the fancy beaches but for groups headed that way it is a solid drive - winding roads make for slow going in HI. We were happy to go south to Volcano NP, South Point, Hilo and even the Saddle Road - you get a feel quickly for when traffic will peak and how to just take it slow... We loved the lanai views and ocean breezes - be sure to pull the shades to keep sun from heating up the home during the day but overall the fans-only "AC" system worked fine to keep things comfy. Kitchen was spacious, well-appointed, and able to contain our busy cooks. The 6- and 11-year old girls loved being in the main floor den/ bedroom/utility room area for their own space to spread out and having full laundry in there was a key feature. Steep drive/road made for an easy exercise plan, though the road was slick on a rainy morning. The grade could be challenging for some but it kept the traffic down to the extent that we had several very quiet or fully private sessions the black pebble beach at the bottom. Sightings of dolphins on the last day may insure our return!

Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (8 adults) just spent a wonderful week in Hale Kumu Kai. We found the house to be exactly as described. It was spotless and had everything that we needed to cook and to relax and play at the beach. We did have to contact the owner once during our stay and we got an immediate reply - great customer service! The walk down to the black pebble beach was very steep and we found it better to drive than to try to walk it. Our first morning there, we drove into Captain Cook and had breakfast at The Coffee Shack. We had a table with a gorgeous ocean view and the food was delicious! We have one piece of advice for folks visiting the island - plan the things you want to do the most for the beginning of your trip. We had reservations for swimming with manta rays but it was canceled because of rough seas. It could have been rescheduled but we didn't have enough time left. We definitely would recommend this wonderful property and the island for a fantastic vacation.

A great place to vacation with the family!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great! It was clean and had everything we needed. We got married on the island and brought our 6 grown children. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and explore. Thanks to the owners, they really know how to make us feel welcome. If you have a large group, you can't go wrong with staying here.

A week in Hawaii

  • 3 of 5

We spent a week at this beautiful vacation home. The house is well stocked and we cooked breakfast there every morning before going out and exploring the island. It is pretty far from town so we didn't come home till we were ready to call it a day. The distance from town was nice at the end of a hectic day coming back and sitting on the deck and relaxing in a peaceful environment and planning the next days activities.

The only downside of our stay was that we had a family of 3 staying in the Ohana room which is on the ground floor. This room was infested with worms. Every day there were dozens of worms in this room. They would make sure the beds were free of worms then wake up with several in bed with them every morning. We finally had my 5 y.o. nephew sleep on the sofa so he wouldn't be in that room. So if you actually need that 4th bedroom I'm not sure that I can recommend the house, but if you only need 3 bedrooms then I would highly recommend the property.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that your stay failed to meet our very high standards. The worms you refer to are actually millipedes that have recently invaded the area of Hawaii that our home is located. We have been working with pest control services to control them. We wish you would have contacted us about the issue in the Ohana room while you were staying at our home . Had we known we could have taken care of the issue while you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate when guests contact us with any issues at the home during their stay. We could have remedied the millipede issue and allowed for you to have a more enjoyable visit . The Ohana French doors were allowing the pests to enter and that area is currently being repaired. Thank you for your Review and informing us of an issue with the home . Guests are our eyes and ears since we do no live on Island . Your comments and phone calls are what allows us to keep this home in amazing condition in a tropical paradise
