Moku Lani

Our property is located in Kailua-Kona, Hawaiʻi, United States. Kona Acres is an established neighborhood of properties that have at one time or another been dedicated to small-scale farming and some still are. Located on the slopes of Hualalai between 700 and 1200 ft. (We are above 900 ft. roughly.) The neighborhood offers an opportunity for you to see how some locals live, and enjoy the sweeping coastal views that being perched on the side of a mountain provide. Moku Lani Retreat is an adult-only vacation rental.


The Owner

Hello everyone! I moved to Hawai'i with the intention of living a simpler life that is closer to nature, and to try a new career opportunity. My partner and I spend a lot of time doing landscaping and other projects in an effort to continually improve our property for us and our guests. Some of my other interests include travel, reading nonfiction, writing nonfiction, photography, commercial aviation (aviation geek), weather, plants, fitness, geography, chocolate … and a lot more! I love my life and I hope to transmit that to those that I host or stay with. Also, my favorite movie is Airplane! which, if you've seen it, tells you a lot about my sense of humor. Surprise me with a line from the movie!

What People Are Saying

Hernan and William were great hosts. The room was new, clean, with a full kitchen and so comfortable it became our second home for two weeks. Had breakfasts on the lanai (common area) including fresh fruit from their property listening to the tropical birds. The property is north of downtown Kona and only 10-minutes from the airport but without any plane noise. The location gives easy access to the great beaches to the north in the Kohala area and to the south in the Captain Cook area and 90-minutes to Hilo via the Saddle Road. We are coming back because it doesn’t get any better than this.

What a wonderful place! Close to shops, beaches, and the airport. Hernan provided us with fresh fruit from the property and made us feel at home on the big island.

5 STAR....Hernan and Williams Place is ABSOLUTELY PERFECT. They have thought of everything. It’s clean, cozy, very nicely decorated....and extremely comfortable. Hernan leaves fresh fruit every morning in the common area for the guests. The location is ideal for people wanting to conveniently get in and out of Kona. Thanks Moku Lani...
