  • Our stay at Larry and Lani's place was really relaxing. They were great hosts and provided us with both very useful information as well as with any supplies needed. The bedroom is spacious, very clean, comfortable and stylish, and the little kitchen outside features everything to cook a proper meal. Mahalo Larry and Lani for having us. A hui hou - maybe in Austria :-)

  • Larry and Lani were the most wonderful and dedicated hosts.
    Larry had a detailed welcoming for us, with limonade, info about the Big Island and maps. The room had everything we needed and more, was very clean and fresh.
    Location is great, close for the beach and the place is calm and relaxing.
    We would defenetly stay with them again.

  • We had a really nice experience with Larry and Lani at Hale Maluhia! Peaceful is definitively the perfect word! The garden, the pool area, the little kitchen, the bedroom, everything is intimate and calm! At our arrival, we got a homemade juice.... It was SO good!! We also really appreciated the local advices we received (maps, bus schedule included). Thank you so much for your generosity, you made our experience in Kona even better!! Laurie & Julien

  • We had a great time staying at Larry and Lani's place. Clean, comfortable room with private entrance, coffee pot and small fridge inside, nice little kitchenette outside, perfect for our week on the Big Island! We had plenty of privacy but someone was always around to offer advice on places to eat or beaches to visit. Larry and Lani were very friendly and accommodating, and made us feel right at home. They also provided snorkeling equipment and beach towels, which was nice. Good location, close to the shore and main sites of Kona, but also near the main road that'll take you to other spots on the island. Also, nice view of the sunset from the backyard. Overall, we had a great time, and would definitely stay here again!

  • Larry and Lani were more than accommodating. They were excellent at providing us a great time for the week that we stayed with them. They gave us amazing suggestions on places to see and beaches to go to. Their snorkelling equipment and beach towels were great to have provided for us as well. We used their small outdoor kitchenette to cook our food for the week and wifi was a lovely bonus. We would definitely stay with them many more times on our future visits to the big island of Hawaii.

  • Lovely place in a good location. Although you need a car to see the big island, I spent a few nights here without a car and had a very enjoyable time. It was easy to get a bus to a good snorkelling beach and took taxis c. 20 us each way to the harbour to catch boat trips. There is a great poke shack on Ali drive which is a short walk away amd serves great food between 10am and 6pm. You can walk or bus it (much quicker) to the main town of kona. Lary and Lani were very nice and both of them let me use their phones to book taxis as my German phone did not work in Hawaii. Thank you both amd I would certainly highly recommend this place. Becky

  • Larry and Lani are very congenial and welcoming. Lovely home and location- beautiful, peaceful yard and gardens, pool, goldfish pond and outdoor gazebo to enjoy. The bedroom was extremely clean with private entrance - my own little lanai and fresh tropical fruit from the garden. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks!

  • Larry and Lani are wonderful hosts. They have a beautiful garden and pool to relax in. Larry was so helpful in suggesting local places to explore. We felt very much at home!

  • The room was nice with private entrance, it provides enough privacy but Larry was always available and helpful in case we had any questions. The basket full of home grown fruits provided on our arrival was fantastic. The place is ideally located to explore Kona and all the beaches (thanks for lending us the snorkel gear).
