We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hale Malulani. The Pauko neighborhood was a nice quiet place with friendly people. The owners of the general store were helpful and friendly too (we did some shopping there but got most groceries from the nearby Foodland store). The house had everything as described in the listing, plus WiFi. My point of reference for many vacations is a cabin on a lake. This cottage was very much like that, except that is on the ocean. As with a lake cabin, location is key and this cottage has a great location. The sliding doors open with screens for 2/3 of the oceanfront side and you get wonderful breezes. We loved falling asleep to the sound of the ocean and waking to the sound of the birds. We stayed there with our 5 year old daughter and it was perfect. She loved the pool and we enjoyed cooling off there most every afternoon. We also enjoyed the yard and the basketball and tennis court (they have paddle boards and tennis balls to use). We also used the bocce ball set, but didn’t try the croquet. We also enjoyed walking out on the rocks at low tide. They also have some beach chairs to bring to great beaches nearby (e.g. Hapuna). There were also some boogie boards and snorkel gear, but we didn’t try them. We definitely recommend this place to anyone that is looking for a quiet neighborhood and great location. It worked for us with one child and it would easily work for two children, but not for toddlers since there is the swimming pool and it is oceanside. The cottage has comfortable bedding and furniture, with a well equipped and functional kitchen.
