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!
I love walking the streets to get exercise. Cars are traveling slowly in the neighbourhood. Speed limit is 15 miles per hour. The swimming hole is two minutes away- go northwest on Kai street to find- its over by the bay. That's where we put kayaks in. There are tide pools in the village and the wharf is a great snorkeling place as is the swimming hole by the house. There really isnt a beach close to the house but drive into the village of Milolii , the last hawaiian fishing village,park, and hike 15 minutes into Honomolino Beach, a pretty, quiet, black sand beach with a patch of white on the southern part.
You need to have a rental car for this house. Four wheel drive is a great addition to your car experience on the island- there are lots of places on the island to enjoy 4 wheel drive- you don't need it though to reach the house- roads are paved but curvy to the house.
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.
Please don't leave screen doors open especially on the first floor as all creatures small and big come in! There is an additional rental agreement to be signed upon arrival at the house. Contact me with any questions.Daniel will check you in and out of the house. At this time there is an 20 dollar charge which I add to your reservation; this covers checkin and out , bottled water, netflix, and internet.. We ask that people be conservative with the water and electricity and respect the place as if it is their own. Again please keep screen doors closed as then the whole bug and critter population comes in if you don"t. When you leave the house please shut glass doors as storms whip up and it could come in and ruin the bamboo floors. Also, wash your dishes If you stay longer than a week please take trash to the village dumpster as bugs grow in the trash containers due to the tropical climate. Trash directions are on fridge. Don't drink the tap water. It's good for brushing your teeth, showering and cooking if you boil it. Bottled water is provided. Please smoke outside .Thanks so much!
About the Host, Cheryl
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 12 year old son, and two dogs. I love to hike and the kings trail is close to this house. I love nature nd 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
