Lalamilo Reviews

Nov.  2015 – “Best Beach House – White Sand Beach” 

For the second time my family and I have stayed at Lalamilo and once again it became our home. The warmth and beauty of the islands surrounds you and the layout of the home enable all of us to stay in the same place comfortably. The great room and kitchen allows us to cook and eat together and the yard which extends out to join the beach allowed the children to be back and forth easily to the beach. We will definitely return!    ~ K.M. Cayucos, California


Mar. 2015 – “A Piece of Paradise”

What a fantastic place! Lalamilo Beach House was the perfect setting for our family vacation! Just pack a bathing suit and go now! Gracious space for sleeping and hanging out. The kitchen worked great for cooking for a crowd. We spent most of our time on the beach and the fabulous deck! The coral reef right out in front of the house hosts a treasure of tropical fish and the gear is provided. Leilani was delightful and so helpful. I highly recommend this piece of paradise!

Apr. 2015 – Our family thoroughly enjoyed our week on the big island, staying at the Lalmillo house.  The house is so close, in fact literally on,  a beautiful sandy beach, and right on Waialea bay where we were able to snorkel, kayak, stand-up paddleboard, and play in the surf to our hearts content.  The location truly makes this a unique location, as we were able to spend time on the beach, then run back to the house for lunch or naps, and then back to the beach when we felt like it.  The sounds of birds and the waves were a wonderful backdrop when we were eating on the deck.   Leilani was great and responsive in coordinating our stay and helping us plan our vacation.  We would love to return. Thanks again, Clint and family


Nov. 2014 – Words cannot express how heavenly this retreat is! Waking up and having a cup of coffee on the beach alone – priceless, a clean, well maintained property – priceless, a kitchen as well stocked as at home – priceless, management that is courteous, concerned, responsive while still allowing privacy – priceless! We have seen turtles, a whale, dolphins and enough memorable sunsets to last a lifetime, will certainly be back. If you are interested in a relaxing, rejuvenating, memorable experience – this is where it’s at. Bring your family – you won’t be disappointed. Blessings. Mrs. G


June 2014 – My wife and I treated our entire family (grandchildren and all) to a week on the Big Island. We were fortunate enough to find the Lalamilo Beach House. It was a paradise, with all the amenities one could ask for. The Puako Beach was fantastic and the sunrise and sunsets to die for. We would recommend this vacation home to all.


Dec.2012 – Our family of 12, ranging in ages from 4 – 79, resident in Seattle, Los Angeles, and Sweden, after spending a full week at Lalamilo House, came home with a lifetime of wonderful memories. Snorkeling, swimming with porpoises and sea turtles, kayaking, boogie boarding, body surfing and beach-walking, offered something for everyone and delighted each of us during the day. Evenings were spent playing an array of games that we found in this wonderful house. We never ate a meal in a restaurant, as the wonderfully equipped kitchen and beautiful dining area suited us perfectly, with different family members sharing the cooking of meals, others cleaning up. It was a great family vacation together. We loved buying local seasonal foods at the farmer’s open-air markets, and fish from a nearby fish market. Arriving our first night late in the evening, Maria had given us good directions for a quick shop stop between the airport and the house–thank you for answering all our questions, making our arrival as easy as possible. We went to the Hilo side to take an amazing 4-hour lava flow walk on the Kiluea system. The youngest ones in our family were not permitted on this walk, so they went to Volcano National Park and were just as pleased with their experience. Our Swedish grandchildren have decided they will live in Hawaii when they are adults! Thank you, thank you from all of us!


July 2012 – Absolutely amazing house on our favorite beach on the island. The house was well equipped with all the supplies that we needed. Our families had a wonderful time at the house and the beach and no one wanted to leave. We all enjoyed beautiful sunsets, sunrises and clear blue water. Snorkeling, boogie boarding, sunbathing, jumping off lava rocks, and just spending time together. Its the perfect vacation home and we can’t wait to come back!
