Kai Malie is a perfect retreat for the traveler wanting a relaxed home to get rest and enjoy the natural beauty of Hawaii. It is nestled in trees yet accessible to all the sites of the "Big Island" with a vehicle. This is truely a highly recommended vacation paradise.
We stayed in this two-bedroom home in June. It is a nice quiet neighborhood. The neighbors are friendly and one even brought me some tomatoes! The owners are great to work with as well.
The home is nicely decorated, and equipped with a washer/dryer in the carport. If you are a nature lover, you should consider this rental. I stood outside for a long time just looking at all of the different kinds of plants adjacent to the back yard. It looks just like the rainforest because it IS! Lots of little geckos were around, and the coqui frogs sang us to sleep at night, and we slept with the windows open to hear their songs.
I really enjoyed my time in Pahoa, and I recommend this rental.
