    Reviews

      This home is amazing. Views are endless. The sound of the waves crashing on the lava could be felt laying in bed. This home has everything you could need for a very relaxing stay. Loved being way out of town with the beauty of nature. I would recommend to anyone who want to be away from it all. Deposit was returned quickly. The pool people came out and took care of the green hot tub in a timely manner. Thanks
      Location, location, location. This home is on a quiet street and oceanfront. The grounds are manicured and beautiful. The road that this home sits on is not paved, but don't worry, there were no issues. Our family and friends loved the place. It rained late in the evening and very early morning. But we had no issues with the weather. don't be scared of the Hilo side. We loved it so much, we are looking to buy in the area. Very low key and relaxing. The only slight issue was that when you leave for the day and close the house up, including all windows due to possible rain, the house was hot and humid when you first enter. But open the windows and turn on a fan or two and its beautiful. Thanks Hale Mar for a great location. Loved the place.
      Hale mar was everything we had hoped for and more. The home was absolutely beautiful. I loved that the Master bedroom was on the top floor and away from the other rooms. The view from the master was absolutely gorgeous. The pool and hot tub were fantastic and right on the water........superb!!!! Renting this home was easy and flawless. Laura was absolutely wonderful and very responsive. We definitely plan on returning and staying at Hale Mar.
      Arriving to Hale Mar was like coming to paradise! As the pictures give a good visual of the house, when you get there it is even more breathtaking! House Pros: Secluded for the most part (not much need for clothing), crashing waves and Coqui frogs lulling you to sleep each night, seeing family of turtles, crabs and fish in your backyard, tons of towels, clean linens, clean fresh smelling, beautiful flowers, not one bad location in the house. House Cons: the only reason I did not give 5 stars, is the dishwasher and garbage disposal were not working and I was really looking forward to not doing dishes on vacation as I do them by hand at home. The garbage disposal got a little smelly towards the end of our stay. (Im sure this will be fixed and probably already is) Location Pros: Secluded, Away from it all, literally Paradise, lots of nature, the ocean IS your backyard Location Cons: Being that it is secluded means you are gonna have some driving to do to get to anything. I suggest one big grocery trip ( I suggest KTA market) and then buy fruits and veggies at the Farmers Markets. Towards the end of our trip we got tired of driving everywhere and just hung out around the house and close to the area. I cooked 6 out of the 7 days of our stay. This is higly recommended as you are not close to restaurants, etc. the reason why we rent a home is so I can cook, so this was not a con really for me (except having to do the dishes by hand). Dont Miss these places: Highly suggest the Pana'ewa Rainforest Zoo in Hilo...its FREE (donations welcome) and was one of the best places we went! Also, dont miss out on the Lava Ocean Tour (total Bucket List item), Botanical Gardens were nice, but not worth $15, the Zoo was better, Hapuna Beach on the Kona side is not to be missed if you are a beach goer, beautiful sands, people, water was crystal clear and seen a turtle swim past me. Downtown Hilo Farmers Market, and Shaved Ice (MMM...with coconut ice cream and condensed milk, rainbow ice). YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED IN HALE MAR!! I literally cried when it was time to go. ALOHA
      This house was well decorated and nicely manicured. The master bedroom was huge with the sounds of the crashing waves the loudest, so cool! I've been to many houses in the Hawaiian paradise park district and I have to say the hot water heater was by far the best! So everyone had hot water for their showers. The shower in the master bedroom was just perfect. The pool and spa were very enjoyable, especially at night! The only deficeit would be the 3rd bedroom which is really small, really, but the person who stayed in the room did not complain. The office on the other hand was the same size as the 2nd bedroom. The view and waves were awesome. Look for turtles in the morning, they like to surf the waves. Saw a whale too.

      This is a lovely house in a beautiful setting. The waves crash against the rocks 24/7 and the coqui frogs sing most of the night. Other than the natural noises, it is very quiet.The master suite is HUGE, but the third bedroom is VERY small, more of an alcove really, so if you are traveling with friends, be aware there will be some inequity of accomodations. Our only disappointment (and it was fairly major, as the pool was the deciding factor in renting this house) was that there are no stairs or ladder into the pool. If you are not young & fit enough to boost yourself out of the pool with your arms, it is NOT accessible.

      We stayed at Hale Mar for a weekend of touring the Volcano National Park and were not disappointed. After a busy week in Waikiki Beach with our 3 kids we were so thrilled to be in a spacious home where we could kick back and relax. The lap pool and jacuzzi were just what we needed to "chill out". The house was well appointed and we were so grateful for the house was stocked with much needed supplies that we didn't want to invest in while on the road. There were spices for cooking, beach towels and laundry detergent. We loved waking up to the sound of the surf! We would definitely return to Hale Mar. The McKeone Family

      The property was located in a quiet location and was very private! The views and sounds of the ocean were spectacular and my daughter really enjoyed the lap pool with fountain, along with the jacuzzi. The bedrooms were very spacious and included great storage for clothing and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils. We were also surprised to find our deposit waiting for us when we got home! That was amazing. We would highly recommend this property when visiting Hilo.

      Home was just as described, very clean, very private with great ocean views. Pool was awesome to cool down in and patio area is perfect for entertaining. We left our decorative lights for other guests to enjoy. Saw Whales right in front of the home along with giant sea turtles. Farmers market was great, even on a rainy day. Volcano wasnt active, but still very cool to check out.

      A Big House for Grand Adventures in Volcano
      The Maluhia Guest House is a five bedroom, 3 bath home located on the slopes of Kilauea on the island of Hawaii. It is just two miles away from the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in the quaint village of Volcano. This huge house with all the amenities and built by the owners was where their four children were raised. It is located in the rainforest and is the perfect place for a mountain vacation where it is cool and relaxing.

      The Maluhia Guest House has a full kitchen, a large dining room, a reading room, a laundry room with a grand living room with a fireplace. The open concept design enables the dynamics of a large group to ebb and flow from one conversation area to the next.

      The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable with most rooms fitted with queen sized beds. The master bedroom has a king sized bed. Most of the bedrooms look out onto the canopy of the 'ohi'a trees, a native species, where native birds such as the 'apapane and i'iwi can be seen flitting among the branches. Lush giant tree ferns and flowering plants complete the landscaping.

      Volcano is the perfect place for people who love the mountains. Exploring the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is a must with optional hiking, educational trips, and photo opportunities. At the Kilauea Military Camp, guests can go bowling or play in the arcade. There is a restaurant, the Crater's Edge, that serves buffets for a very reasonable price. Or have a meal at the Volcano House and enjoy a stupendous view of the crater. Golfers can play at the Volcano Golf Course. The Volcano Village has two art galleries, five restaurants, an orchid garden, a glass firing studio, and gift shops. Visiting the Sunday Farmers' Market at the Cooper Community Center is a perfect opportunity to meet the local residents.

      Volcano is also the perfect pace to sit back, relax, breathe in the cool mountain air, and just do nothing. The Maluhia Guest House is in a very quiet neighborhood. The evenings are quiet, and dark. Go to sleep to the sound of crickets outside. If you are lucky enough to be in Volcano during a full moon, make time to watch the moon rising from among the native trees.

      The hosts, Don and Mililani Hughes, have lived in Volcano since 1981. They are retired educators and school administrators. Their mission is to make their motto come alive for all guests: Where Hawaiian hospitality is alive and well. They go out of their way to optimize the Volcano experience for their guests.
