Welcome to Hale Malama Pono, a temporary home base for you to enjoy what Hawaii has to offer you as a visitor while treading as lightly as you can. Your hosts are long time visitors to the Island and now new owners. This home away from home is named for the values that they hope infuse it: preserving and protecting (the earth) with integrity. The Hawaiian words have layers of meaning, and the phrase is also commonly used to mean “Take care of yourself.”
Hale Malama Pono offers all the wonderful qualities of the Kona-Keauhou Surf and Racquet Club: warm tropical breezes, lush landscaping, a great pool and tennis courts, internet and cable TV, convenient BBQs, and proximity to fascinating historical archeological sites. It sits on Ali’i Drive with a 7-mile ocean-front urban walking “trail” at the front gate, and is within walking distance to shopping, golfing, farmers’ markets, snorkeling, surfing and more. Beach equipment like boogie boards, ice chest, beach towels, beach chairs and beach mats are here for your use. Plus a couple yoga mats and tennis equipment.
As an end unit, all the rooms, including the bathrooms have natural light and ventilation. When additional light is needed at night, it will come from LEDs. When less warmth is desired, fans provide a cooling breeze. USB ports on the bedroom clocks make phones and tablets charging easy.
To honor the 'aina, the land which feeds us, the condo is stocked with earth-friendly personal care and cleaning products, enough to last your entire stay. The hosts don’t claim to be 100% chemical free, but aim to be as close as possible. A small closet is designated as a recycling area to support your efforts to avoid landfill. A growing inventory of re-usable alternatives like cloth napkins, re-usable shopping bags, and refillable water bottles are here for you use, In order to avoid single use products, and for those who cook in, there’s a full complement of spices, herbs and condiments, and helpful small appliances.
For a casual exposure to things Hawaiian, there’s a growing library of tour books, fiction and jigsaw puzzles. For delving deeper, there are books and booklets about Hawaiian history, flowers, birds, fish, petroglyphs and more.
The condo is furnished and organized to help you unpack quickly, make yourselves at home, and get right to the fun and relaxation of Hawaii.
Whether from beaches and viewpoints around the Island, or the lanai at Hale Malama Pono, gaze at the gleaming turquoise ocean, spraying white as it crashes against the black lava, and see a different, beautiful sunset every night.

We stayed in unit 3-101, which is a lovely condo overlooking the ocean. It is a corner unit, which gives lanai space on two sides. The glass sliders in the livingroom are great and bring the outdoors inside. I liked the condo floor plan, with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Kitchen was fairly well supplied (needs a pizza cutter!). The only negative was that the wifi was very erratic, especially toward the end of our stay. We had to reboot the wifi frequently. When it was working, the speed was fine. We enjoyed our stay, especially the sunsets which are always amazing.
