We cannot recommend Gary's place enough! It was our first time to Hawaii and we are already planning our next trip to stay there again. The pictures do not do justice to how amazing the apartment and view are, a few steps from incredible views of the ocean crashing against the bluffs and perfectly situated to visit the thermal pools, volcanic national park and some gorgeous views. Gary and Karen are happy to help offer suggestions (and directions) to send you to some unforgettable places, and they add some lovely personal touches to their beautiful home for you. Can't wait to come back!

I'm not big on lengthy reviews, but the place was wonderful. The location is great for exploration of the volcano park and east side of the island. I would definitely recommend. One of the best things is if you want to make the trek out to see the lava go into the ocean. The house is pretty close, my girlfriend and I were very pleased that we had a short trip home after doing the 9 mile hike that night. If I ever find myself on that side of the island again I will look to repeat my stay.

This is a very quite and friendly neighborhood. The ocean view is fantastic. There is a small park across the house, you can stay there and listen or watch the waves. The house is very clean and everything you need is provided, except for the food, which you can get at Malama Market, our nearby fave store for groceries and ready to eat food. The sounds of frogs in the evening and birds in the morning - very live nature sounds, we loved it, music to our ears. Gary even let you use his snorkling gears, beach chairs, beach towels and a cooler - make your vacation easier coz you dont have to pack or rent them here. So if you are planning a vacation in Hilo, Gary's Makana Kai place is a MUST.

If you're looking for a peaceful, lush and well appointed get away, we recommend Gary and Karen's place. Adventure is right outside the door and peacefulness within. We would return without hesitation.

Class act. We loved our stay and meeting Gary & Karen. Banana bread, fresh fruit, coffee and tea were available upon our arrival. The space is clean, comfortable, well stocked, and nicely decorated. It took us about 40 minutes to get to Volcanoes NP but we didn't mind the drive because it was so nice coming back to this private oasis. Upon our departure we were presented with a keepsake of Makana Kai. This is the ideal base for sightseeing on the east side of the Big Island. Thanks for a great stay Gary & Karen!

This is an absolutely lovely place. Super comfy with a great lanai to relax on or enjoy a meal from. We liked that it was in a quieter area with the added bonus of good access to some of the better beaches on that side of the island.

Gary User ProfileGary is a superhost.

Mild-mannered gentleman with sense of humor and love of life who occasionally ponders the question. "What's it all about?"
Having lived in Hawaii for well over 17 years I've yet to find the answer, but I honestly can't think of a better place to look for it.
