This is a well appointed and comfortable home across the street from the ocean in a quiet neighborhood complete with 2 very friendly cats, geckos and coki frogs. The owner (Dwight) is very accomodating and readily available if needed. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor shower and privacy. This is a real treat!

Our Hula group came to Big Island for Merrie Monarch Festival. We couldn't get tickets to the festival as it was sold out. The owner of Hale Lalala set up the 50" large screen TV with live streaming of the festival so we could enjoy it. We had a blast. Awesome home. Spacious and comfortable beds and furniture. The outdoor shower was incredible! Large deck for sunning. Very fun to walk to the oceanfront. Loved...
