Welcome to Mai Tiki Retreat, where your ideal Hawaiian vacation meets all the comforts of home!
This gorgeous 2 bdm, 2 bth, stunning ocean-view, family friendly house is sure to please!
It offers two exclusive & completely separate homes in one. This listing is for the top level unit only, which can easily accommodate 6 guests, (up to 8 if 2 twin air mattresses are used) & includes full, private access to your own personal Tiki bar & resort-like heated pool! Also close to beach and town.
The top unit has expansive vaulted cedar ceilings, with an open concept kitchen/living room space that compliments the open and flowing elements of the home. It is well designed and decorated - you will feel like you are right at home!
There are 2 large bedrooms, 2 full baths, and absolutely stunning views of the ocean/Kona Coast and spectacular sunsets from the lanai, and from just about every room in the house!
The large covered lanai offers magnificent panoramic ocean views, and stunning sunsets. The inviting interior and quiet location with cool breezes at a perfect 550 foot elevation allows for a relaxing and memorable stay, however, for those hot days we also offer air conditioning in each bedroom for a more comfortable and relaxed nights sleep.
One final amenity that we are so excited to offer is the opportunity for your little ones to sleep outside under the stars ---of course, in a safe and controlled environment, where you will be just steps away! You will find a large canvas teepee, folding foam sleeping pad, and extra blankets and pillows for their comfort in the master bedroom closet. You can set these items up on the large area rug found on the lanai just outside of the master bedroom. This extra special accommodation will leave your children with a memory they will never forget!
There is ample parking available in the driveway or on the side of the streets in front of the home.
Guests have 100% private use and access to the pool and tiki bar area.
Interaction with guests
The Host is usually available on short notice to answer questions, provide any special needed items, and to offer local knowledge. They are on-site downstairs for emergency situations, but interact as little as possible for privacy of all guests.
Other things to note
Our check-in time is 4pm and check out time is 11am, but we may be able to accommodate early arrivals or late departures, so please request at time of booking.
