About this listing
Beautiful house with breathtaking panoramic oceanview in gated Malulani Gardens. This 3BR/2BA house is located in the heart of Kailua-Kona near everything. It is a 10 minutes drive from/to the airport, 2 minutes from Safeway, Walmart, Starbucks and numerous restaurants. Alii drive and the beach is five miles away. Hapuna beach is about 30 minutes drive. There is a king, a queen and 2 twin beds available. The kitchen is fully equipped with appliances and tools. A huge jacuzzi is the place to relax after island activities. The house is in a cool elevation plus fans and central A/C. Cable and wifi are also provided. Cruise ships can be viewed from the back lanai when they are in town. Guests could expect the quiet and convenient location of Malulani Green Haven.
The neighborhood is very quiet and centrally located close to everything.
Beautiful house. Despite the week of rain we enjoyed our stay. We were able to walk to town in 20 minuets. Everything we needed was available. The host was very responsive to any questions and concerns. The only thing I would change is the living room furniture. It's "beachy", but not very comfortable. We will be back, hopefully when there is some sun out
The most important thing to convey is that the pictures of this location don't do it justice!
The back yard and lanai are about 40 feet off the ground and there are no houses or structures of any kind that obstruct it, so you have a vista view of the entire Kona skyline sunrise to sunset!
The house is nice, reasonably modern, and well equipped with everything we needed.
The host was responsive, and accurately described everything about the house and its amenities and answered all of my questions in a timely fashion with a polite air.
Overall, I'd rate it a 92 on my personal scale of awesomeness.
Just some very minor additions would make the place perfect (some Hawaiian decor and a table on the back patio)... but for the price I honestly don't think you'll find a better place in the Kailua Kona area that is this clean, or a house with a better view. The sunsets were stunning.
All the extra's were also great, such as the beach chairs, umbrella's, and some of the stuff other folks have left in the garage such as ice-coolers, day bags, snorkel gear, etc.
The house is comfortable, beautiful, and functional. Clean, cool, and equipped with everything you'll need (including some left over food-stuff in the pantry such as spices, cooking oil, napkins, etc.)
We would definitely stay here again.
It was our first Airbnb try out and turned out very well!
Great location. The owner Josephine was always available and quickly responsive to our request. The neighborhood is well located just minutes away from the shops and beaches in Kona. The house amenities was as described.
My wife and I, along with a group of friends, rented this house while in Hawaii for a friends wedding. This house was PERFECT! Really spacious, nice back yard, amazing location, and it's on a hill so you get a beautiful view!! We couldn't have asked for more and the owners made everything really easy for us. I will definitely be keeping this place in mind for our next visit!
What a beautiful place to stay while on Hawaii! The living room and two of the three bedrooms have an amazing view. The place is fully equipped. There were two snorkeling sets and two boogie boards to use. They were pretty basic, but if you don't have your own it is great to have. There were also two beach chairs and an umbrella, which we really enjoyed using.
Everything was as described, except for one surprise. The "jacuzzi" is a bathtub with jets, in the master bedroom. We were anticipating a jacuzzi hot tub outside.
The location is very close to Kailua Town, even walkable if you are in good shape. The neighborhood felt very safe, and was impeccably well kept and very lush.
Josephine was prompt in communication, very gracious, and accommodating. She really helped us make the most of our Hawaiian vacation.
First, the place is fantastic - perfect for our family of six. Located really close to Wal-Mart and Safeway for groceries. Very easy to get on the main highway and go wherever you want on the island. The views from the Lanai (either off the master bedroom or the second bedroom) are just inspiring - incredible sunsets!
The owners were wonderful to deal with - super responsive and really made us feel welcome. We needed an extra bed and they bought a really nice air mattress for our daughter to sleep on. The beach chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards - really appreciated (we did not use the snorkel gear but they have two sets of very nice high quality gear available).
The house is really spacious, comfortable, very clean, everything is in working condition. Air conditioning throughout the house was REALLY appreciated. Delicious mangoes growing right there by the front door - we ate several! The neighborhood is super quiet - the only thing you hear is rain on the roof (and maybe the occasional mooing cow).
Overall, it really felt like home away from home. Malulani Haven would be our first choice by a mile if we ever returned to the big island again!
Great home - four of us were traveling together (2 couples) and had a fantastic stay. The house looks just like the photos, very clean, breathtaking view to wake up to each morning! Super convenient location, definitely recommend it to others.
