Very Good

My wife and I stayed here with our 2 children (18 and 10) and had a wonderful time. The accommodation was excellent and we all loved the outdoor shower. The outdoor kitchen is great; we never actually used the inside kitchen. The 2 hosts: Janice and Rusty, are lovely people and cannot do enough to help out with anything. The water temp and clarity is amazing with 30m visibility most days. We snorkelled and kayaked with dolphins and got pretty close to humpback whales, which we saw everyday. If you go to the Big Island and want to spend your time with 3000 people beside you (did that in Waikiki), by all means go to the Hilton Waikoloa, a couple of hours nth of here. If you want to spend your time with a lot less people and enjoy a beautiful part of the world, stay here, you won't be sorry. Thanks Janice and Rusty.

Words cannot describe how much we loved our stay! From the lovely ocean view, the sound of the waves, the well stocked supplies (everything you could think of),the friendly and helpful hosts, the gorgeous weather, to the relaxation and rejuvenation we enjoyed, this place is wonderful. The only negative thing we could think of was that there was no way to slow down the time so we could enjoy it longer! We explored most of the Big Island, but this was one of our favorite spots. We celebrated our 10th anniversary here and would love to come back and revisit some of the many beautiful places we discovered. We spent many hours watching and listening to the waves, watching for and seeing whales, and experiencing the ocean. Another highlight was kayaking across the bay with many, many dolphins swimming all around us! If you have a chance, I highly recommend booking this place!

​That's because we had to leave. Yes the day came that we had to depart. But while we were there it was one of the most relaxing, invigorating and peaceful vacations that we've had in years. The property was impeccably kept and although Janice and Rusty(hosts) were virtually invisible they were always nearby if we needed help finding something or just for a friendly chat(they are a lovely couple). I would recommend Hale Nai'a to anyone wanting a relaxing secluded vacation yet​ ​not too far from golf,snorkel/diving(amazing) the night life, entertainment, sightseeing or what ever it may be that you would be interested in personal favorite relaxation exercise was sitting on the lanai watching for(and seeing many) dolphins and humpbacks going by. One last thing, the climate was amazing at this location, often we would look up to the top of the hill and see weather happening, yet we were always spared down at the cove. In closing, if The Big Island is your destination in Hawaii, this spot should be on the top of your list of choices.

This place transported me to a dream world! The cottage is comfortable with the king sized luxury bed, but the real highlight is the combination of indoor and outdoor living quarters. I loved the outdoor shower and the outdoor kitchen. Every morning after coming back from a long swim, I looked forward to sinking into one of the chairs or the hammock with a cold drink for a little relaxing. One night I even slept outside under the stars and woke in the early morning to the sound of whales! Hawaii doesn't get any more authentic. The location of the cottage is perfect. I could see and hear the water from wherever I was inside or outside. Also, the beach is just a short stroll away. Snorkeling at the beach is phenomenal! The coral provides a home for all sorts of colourful fish who swim around munching away. There are a couple spots where the coral has formed a natural arch which is a great place to explore life underwater. One morning while swimming, a manta ray joined me and another morning I was lucky enough to be in the bay when a few pods of dolphins came in. It was truly magical! It is easy to tell that the owners take pride in this property and want to make sure you have a great visit. Looking forward to my next visit to the Dolphin House! Thanks Janice and Rusty for a very relaxing and truly magical visit to Hawaii!

“The Real Hawaii - Magical”

Reviewed 26 Mar 2013

My husband, two year old daughter and I had the pleasure of staying at this cottage for a few days in February. The cottage is amazing and fully equipped. The outdoor kitchen made us feel like we were on a cooking show on The Food Network. It was stocked right down to pink Himalayan sea salt. The master bed is very comfy - resort quality sheets and linens. There is an outdoor shower which is lovely for rinsing off after the beach and an indoor bath for relaxing. The beach itself was very close - my two year old could walk there - maybe 200 ft or so. The beach has a sandy area, a grassy park and a small sandy entrance way between lava rocks to swim out to excellent snorkeling. While out swimming my husband saw pods of dolphins which frequent this bay. We also heard whales in the early morning hours. Rusty and Janice were excellent hosts and introduced us to some friends and locals, giving us a feel for the real Hawaii. Rusty gave a demonstration of opening up a coconut with a machete which was a big hit with my daughter. All in all a magical place to stay, we were just sorry we hadn't planned a longer visit.
