We enjoyed four beautiful nights in Hale Nalu (cottage #3) and found our stay to be exceptional. Teddy and the staff went above and beyond to ensure we had everything and more to be comfortable. The cottages themselves are in great condition--beautifully appointed and such soft sheets! I did find the mattresses a tiny bit soft, but still slept like the dead every night. Somehow, the air conditioner was just loud enough to drown out most of the music (unless there was a drummer), so the noise wasn't a huge issue. That said, you can definitely hear it in the background and may want to use earplugs if you go to sleep before 9:30 p.m.

Still, there are so many pluses to staying at the LLBC. Drinks and pupus brought to your doorstep each night, awesome sea turtles hanging out on the beach, immediate access to the water (and what feels like your own private beach, although it's not) and fantastic sunrises. We enjoyed two dinners at the restaurant and while we are cat people, understand that some folks might be startled seeing the one or two cats walking through. One of them stopped by our cottage for pets--very friendly.

Do take advantage of the amazing outdoor shower and all the mango-scented products they have thoughtfully provided. Leave your hairdryer, beach towels, and body lotion at home. We asked to borrow larger coffee mugs to facilitate intake of more of their delicious Kona coffee--the Keurig is a little finicky about water intake. Nothing like sitting on the front porch enjoying one of their breakfast fruit plates and a cup of coffee...we will be back!

Room Tip: Use the faucets in outdoor shower to get rid of the sand first before showering.

Great must go. Love the music each night. Room great . Beach great. Out door shower is a must do.Sunset great, best green flash sunset we ever saw. Restaurant right next door no driving . Private parking made easy access each day. Becky made our 40th anniversary very special. House keeping kept room clean and the refrigerator stocked each day. They even worked around our schedule asking what time would be best. Wow
What great service. We are planning our next trip and can't wait. Will stay longer next trip. Like staying at a private home not a hotel feel.
Get your toes in the sand each day. Thanks for everything.

Four well-thought-out, nicely appointed cottages right on the beach. Comfortable and spacious. I wish I could live there!

We were in the third cottage from the restaurant, and found the Friday evening restaurant noise (including musician) pleasantly lively, but I imagine being in the first cottage might be a bit on the loud side.

My wife and I recently stayed at the Hale Moana cottage and it was awesome! The cottage was amazing inside and steps away from the beach, and the staff was pleasant to interact with. It's also right by the Lava Lava Beach Club restaurant, which was also very cool - great food and great atmosphere (live music). They provide standing paddle boards for cottage guests to use, and I took one out in the morning when almost no one else was on the beach or in the bay. We were on our honeymoon and traveled to a few different islands, including two different locations on the Big Island, and by far our favorite accommodation was at the Lava Lava Beach Club. We only stayed there a few days, which didn't seem like enough time. We definitely want to return to the Hale Moana for a longer visit!

We have stayed here twice now and absolutely love it! You are literally right on the beach and can hear the waves from your room! The cottage itself is very well maintained, comfortable bed and sheets, large bathroom, and an awesome outdoor shower! You can sit on the porch and you are staring straight at the ocean.
You are provided with cocktails and pupus around happy hour time, and the staff are very attentive and accommodating if you need anything. The cottage is just steps away from Lava Lava beach club restaurant which has great food, great drinks, and great music (not to mention the equally amazing view). Get a table right on the sand and watch the sunset over A-Bay.... Can't recommend it highly enough!! Thanks for a wonderful and memorable stay.
