Sandy said, " My husband and I recently had the utmost pleasure of staying at Hale Laule’a. We were celebrating a very special occasion and chose the Ocean Suite including the celebration package. We were thrilled when we arrived! Chad generously provided a tour of the grounds and gave us a very informative history of the property. The grounds were spectacular! Besides the outstanding ocean views from every location, there are several areas to sit and enjoy the peacefulness and privacy of the property. There is even a covered outdoor area to serve dinner as part of your celebration for family and friends. On top of all the beauty and serenity of the property, the hosts Chad and Jennifer provided a wealth of knowledge of activities and sights on the island of Hawaii. A vacation to Hale Laule’a is truly a delight, we will definitely be making a return visit."
Brian said, "Wow! Words are not going to express our delight with this rental, but we will try. The property is breathtakingly beautiful, spacious, private, secure, and the views of the ocean are dreamlike. I viewed all the well appointed and very clean rental units during my vacation and I would love to stay in any of them on my next visit. The hosts are informative and kind. They will offer as much guidance and assistance as you wish. We took excursions with the host as a guide and loved them all...Did I really boulder climb, jump off that cliff , and swim to a waterfall? Yes I did! And so much more because the house is centrally located to all day trips. My only regret is that we did not book all two weeks of our vacation at this airbnb. This place is by far the best value that we have ever found in our travels. Definitely a return trip is in order! Loved, loved, loved it!"
Kevin said, " This was our favorite place so far in Airbnb. From the minute we arrived we felt like royalty with the comfort of being at home with humble people who gave off a family vibe. The Estate was immaculate and felt like a 5 star resort. The hosts went above and beyond for us. We had breakfast every day we were there and it was delicious. The room had a beautiful view of the ocean. We were invited to spend time with them on New years eve and got to meet the other guests and chat. The property had history attached to it that was so much fun to learn about. Chad is a great tour guide and his wife Jennifer is extremely knowledgeable. They are such lovely people and we would definitely stay with them again. Thank you so much for this experience. It won't be easily forgotten."
Adam said, " Wow! Just wow! The property is 10 out of 5 stars! Chad and Jennifer are there to make sure everything is perfect. Absolutely amazing. Don’t hesitate to book. You won’t regret it."
Amanda said, " Hale Laule'a is absolutely amazing! If you're visiting the Big Island, this is the place to stay! Chad and Jennifer are wonderfully interesting hosts, are knowledgeable about the Island and will help maximize your time and fit in so many incredible experiences while you're here. The only warning I can give is that you might want to quit your job and move to Hawaii if you come! We'll definitely be back!"
Justin said, " Wow! Where to even begin...I booked a 3 night stay as a surprise for my wife's birthday while we planned to explore the island. After Jennifer gave us a brief history and showed us around the property we could've just canceled our other plans and stayed the whole week. The property was as impressive as any of the attractions we came to the island to see, from it's view of the ocean cliffs to the banyan and fruit trees in the front yard. Everything was clean and ready for us upon arrival. The part that really took us by surprise was Jennifer taking the time to make sure we were not only comfortable, but taking a genuine interest in our trip to make sure we had the best time possible. We could not have asked for a better host. We will definitely be returning and extending our stay the next time around!"
Hanna said, " This property is great for any history lover out there! Want to learn about the Hawaiian Sugar industry past? You'll love this place! Want to take long exploring walks with departure directly from the property to some of the most beautiful places on the big island? You'll love this place! Want to wake up to the sun rising with a view right from your bed? You'll love this place! Want to look at horses grazing, dogs playing, and pool water shimmering, not to mention the sound of the crashing waves as a constant companion while on the property? You'll love this place!"
Terri said, " Hale Laule’ lives up to its name, “House of Peace” in all ways. Our hosts, Chad and Jennifer, were attentive in all ways, providing us with great recommendations on what to do and special places to see that were off the beaten path. They worked very hard to match their recommendations with the type of vacation we were interested in. Our ‘home away from home’, the carriage house, was lovely, exceptionally clean, comfortable, and to top it all off provided a sunrise view (if you were up early enough) and ocean view through your bedroom window. It was private and quite unique in many ways. Finally, the grounds of Hale Laule’ are nothing short of a wonder. The hosts have attended to every detail on the grounds to make them Hawaiian lush, beautifully manicured, with comfortable seating around every turn. We had morning coffee and evening libations at a different spot on the grounds every day. There are many unique offerings about this place. It is not only a place to lay your head, but offers experiences to be savored as well. We highly recommend and hope to someday return."
Jim said, " The pictures do this place no justice. This is a peace of heaven. We couldn't wait to wake up each day and watch the sunrise, greet the animals and explore all the wonder around. Jennifer and Chad are excellent hosts. The home is clean, spacious and well equipped. So much fun learning about the history of the property and the love and grit that went into making what it is today and their love and passion for preserving the land. You would be crazy to pass up the opportunity of your lifetime in experiencing a stay with Chad & Jennifer and their amazing home in Hilo!"
