What a paradise location!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were looking for a property that was close to both the Hilo area and the volcanoes so this seemed in the middle of both. I liked the fact that it wasn't commercial with lots of people and seemed private.

What a beautiful property and the owners were very nice to deal with in setting up the reservation. They sent plenty of information that we needed in advance of our arrival.

Once we got to the island and located Mika Lani (excellent directions, by the way !!!) , we were amazed to find a wonderful home full of amenities and right on the water. No loud surf, but just the gentle tidal pools that were loaded with fish. Snorkeling was AMAZING and my husband used 3 rolls of films shooting the coral and fish in his underwater camera.

We had breakfast on the front lanai every morning to the amazing views and the birds chirping and fish jumping. What a relaxing place. You will love the serenity here.

The facility is REALLY clean, down to the BBQ Grill, hottub, and washer and dryer. There is nothing that you will need that this home doesn't supply. There are snorkel masks, fins, kayaks, towels, a nice welcoming basket of goodies and even champagne. The kitchen is VERY well equipped! Everything was thought of by the gracious hosts.

We will come back to the islands at some point and we will stay at Mika Lani again. We highly recommend this vacation rental!

Don't hesitate to rent this spot. For the price, you'll have a wonderful spot that would be hard to beat.

We highly recommend Mika Lani!

In Love with the Mika Lani!

This is the most amazing place for 2 people who want to experience a romantic getaway. if you decide to stay here all you are going to need to bring are your swim suits and your fresh food and beverage's. Everything else that you might need is provided. There are 2 bikes, 2 kayaks, an assortment of different sizes of snorkeling gear, water toys, games, movies, books, a washer & dryer, outside cloths line, outdoor shower, gas bbq, oceanfront jacuzzi, 2 hammocks, a huge wrap around lanai with patio furniture, the whole property is gated and locked. The kitchen is equipped with appliances, dishes, silverware, pots & pans, spices, condiments. There are 2 beautiful bathrooms, a private bedroom with a queen size bed, and the views from this house are two die for. The neighborhood is quite, safe and serene. The owners were wonderful to work with and when the time came she sent us directions that were spot on. When we arrived there was a gift basket and a bottle of champagne chilling in the fridge while Hawaiian music played softly in the background. One of the best things about staying here is the protected snorkel bay right outside your back door. We snorkeled and kayaked every day. This was the highlight of our trip. We saw the most amazing fish and coral formations while swimming in the gentle calm water. I am in love with this place. I am homesick even now as I type. Never in my life have I ever wanted to return to the same place twice until now. I am happy to say that I have already booked our next trip to this beautiful home and look forward to walking through her doors again. Mahalo Jamie and Noi for sharing your beautiful home!

My husband and I spent a fabulous 5 days at Mika Lani. The house, location, wonderful wrap-around porch is stunning!! Jamie has thought of everything we might need: coffee, basic food pantry, wifi, sarong & robes, snorkeling gear, lotions...even a first aid kit (which we used after a nasty coral cut). The gift basket, fresh flowers, a bottle of champagne... all was very much appreciated. I loved the hot tub and outdoor shower. The snorkeling gear was well maintained and the cooler helpful when we made a trip to the market. This is a great location for people who have seen the island and just want a relaxing stay with wonderful water access and a chance to further explore the Hilo/Puna area. It is so lovely that you don't want/need to leave.

Best Snorkeling Vacation Home Ever

  • 5 of 5
I was looking for a property that was close to good snorkeling and close to the volcanoes. And guess what, good snorkeling doesn’t come close to describing this paradise. We loved the fact it is quiet and private, which is what we really wanted for this vacation. As for the volcanoes, we made one day trip and snorkeled every day.

Once we got to the island and located Mika Lani (excellent directions), we were amazed to find such a wonderful home full of amenities and right on the water. The pictures are an introduction, while the visible greeting exceeded our expectations. The tidal pools far exceeded what we were hoping for and the snorkeling was AMAZING. Between the two of us, we shot over 300 pictures with our digital cameras of the coral and fish in this beautiful underwater paradise.

At the risk of being redundant, what many others have said we also found to be true.

From one former guest, “We had breakfast on the front lanai every morning to the amazing views and the birds chirping and fish jumping. What a relaxing place. You will love the serenity here.” We are in 100% agreement here. What a way to be greeted each morning!

From another former guest, “The facility is REALLY clean, down to the BBQ Grill, hottub, and washer and dryer. There is nothing that you will need that this home doesn't supply. There are snorkel masks, fins, kayaks, towels, a nice welcoming basket of goodies and even champagne. The kitchen is VERY well equipped! Everything was thought of by the gracious hosts.” Again, this can’t be stated any better, and thank you very much for the champagne and coffee!

From yet another former guest, “We will come back to the islands at some point and we will stay at Mika Lani again. We highly recommend this vacation rental!” Without a doubt, we will be returning to Mika Lani in the coming years.

I could go on and on with more great quotes from others, but we need to close and say, “Many thanks to Jamie & Noi for everything provided at Mika Lani. Mahalo, Jamie & Noi, for sharing your paradise with us!!!”

Awesome place...exceeded all expectations the house and location perfect don't really know what to say that has not already been said except that its all accurate. I really want to make a point of how well prepared and well stocked the house was. I have stayed in quite a few VRBO's and Mika Lani is the best by far.I have been in the wine business for thirty years and rated and judged 1000's of wines but never rated a wine 100 points perfect...... Rather than trying to verbalize how nice Mika Lani I am rating it a PERFECT 100 points great job and thank you for a wonderful vacation. Highly Recomend
