Our group had a fantastic vacation at this house. Our host Amma, who was very accommodating and great to work with. The use of the kayaks, and the beautiful location/property made for great trip. We hope to come back again some time.
We completely enjoyed our stay in Hale Lawai'a Cottage. IT was just the right size for the two of us. Loved the view from inside the cottage towards Kealakekua Bay, that side of the cottage was completely screen in. No walls to block the view. Our host was very sweet and offered us lots of information. We enjoyed kayaking and snorkeling in the right in front of the cottage. This location is very quiet and off the main tourist areas. But still close enough to enjoy the sights and activities on the Kona side of the island. I would come back "in a minute"! Additionally, if you have a larger group there is a house on the same compound that sleeps about 6-9 people.
We stayed at lawai'a cottage and it was great! Right at the Beach you sleep with the sound of the waves and in the morning you can snorkeling with dolphins. We kajeked with our 4 years old girl (lifewest avaiable) and just enjoyed our Time! We will retourn as quick as possible
This is was one of the best AirBnB experiences we've had. The location is AMAZING. The cottage is located right on the water of Kealakua Bay, with waves crashing up against the rocks just a hundred feet from the cottage. Free ocean kayaks are available to use to kayak the bay, snorkel, and see the dolphins and whales. We had dolphins swimming with us while we snorkeled and whales surfacing several hundred feet away on our first kayak trip out. There is a magnificent cliff that backdrops it all. The design of the cottage is very nice, with huge open screened windows creating a panorama across the entire front view onto the ocean and sunset. The wind blows through all day keeping it cool and refreshing. The layout felt open and breezy which we loved. There are screens to pull down if you need your privacy. The bathroom has a large shower which was also great. Amma, the property manager, is on site all day and was very attentive to our needs. She also gives a training on how to safely use the kayaks which made even us as beginners feel comfortable. Overall, it was an awesome and very memorable stay. We highly recommend it. (Note: they have another unit which is not as nice - see our review of it. If you have a choice, go with either this cottage or the upstairs. Both also give you access to the kayaks.)
