Mountain View house description

Bonnie and David designed and built this house in 2008, and have lived here since. We love living in Hawaii and the Mountian View area. The climate is cooler and pleasant. I am a carpenter and design and draw house plans. Bonnie works in the social services sector. We enjoy meeting people and are looking forward to having guests in our home.

Our rental is perfectly located for a quick, easy night trip to view glow at Kilaeua Caldera.

                            We found Bonnie and David's place nicely decorated and fully equipped, very clean, comfortable and affordable. It is quiet and peaceful and close to Volcano National park and Hilo. We were greeted by Bonnie, who showed us the suite and gave us some information on the area. The fresh fruit left in the suite was a nice touch. All in all it was a pleasant stay. I will recommend this place to others.

                            Mountain view is close to volcano NP, and saddle road which is good for birder. The property is clean, well maintained and has everything you need, for example drinking water, fresh fruit, etc.David and Bonnie are nice and very helpful. And yes, I will recommend this property.

                            Bonnie greeted us and opened the gate to her garden of Eden. Blooming Ohias, bananas, gardenias, anthuriums, ferns...all greener than green, beautiful. When she opened the door to the studio apartment it was a "Wow", no kidding! She and David have created a tropical getaway that is impeccable in design. We loved the decor and comfort of the entire studio. Our needs were totally provide for, including a couple of chilled papayas in the fridge! Our stay was a brief two nights, however we can visualize staying for much longer. This is a place where one could hunker down in the apartment and simply stay. The second evening we 'hosted the hosts' as Bonnie and David came up for a visit and chat, giving us an opportunity to get to know one another. We later enjoyed a soak in the hot tub, serenaded by coqui frogs....a great ending to our time in Hawaii.

                            We recently had a lovely three-night stay in this charming apartment. We had read the reviews and looked at the photos, but still could not believe our luck upon arrival. The place was immaculate, charmingly decorated, well-stocked and the perfect size for two. Bonnie supplied fresh papaya, bananas and two eggs for our first breakfast, which gave us time to grocery shop the next day. We loved the quiet, the birds, the garden and surrounding vegetation and our own deck from which to enjoy it. The location is off the beaten path (a short ways down country roads), yes, but excellent if you want to explore the Volcano area as well as Hilo and Puna - which we did. Bonnie and David were available if needed but did not intrude. Not being used to country life in Hawaii we also appreciated the "security" of the locked gate at night. We highly recommend this to any couple traveling in the area and looking for a special place to call "home".

                            This was an awesome place! I wish I had reserved our entire stay there. They have everything you need there and more. Bonnie and David were great. They have all the info you need to enjoy the island. Restaurants, places to visit, directions, beach towels complete with bag to carry them, ice chest, dish tv, condiments and a very beautiful place to enjoy. Total privacy. The best place we stayed on this island this time or before.

                            What a wonderful place to stay! The room is upstairs, above the owners home. It has everything, and I mean, everything that you need to make a wonderful stay. The owners are very friendly and helpful. Full Kitchen that is fully stocked and dishwasher, one bedroom with a sleeper in the living room, very lovely bathroom with shower, and parking in a secure area. I stayed with my Husband and our good friend, and it was very comfortable for the three of us. We took full advantage of the kitchen and cooked several meals at the location, everything we needed was there including most spices, condiments, etc. The owners provided us with fruits from their garden while we stayed and we loved it! We were there to visit Big Island, and for five days we left very early in the morning and came back randomly during the day. The property is gated, so parking is inside the gate, but we were able to come and go as we pleased with no issues. The bathroom is in the main bedroom, was well stocked with plenty of towels, beach towels, beach bag (if needed). Even with three of us we did not use all the towels, but the owners offered to supply more if needed. The television had cable, but was located in the bedroom, Internet was provided via Wifi. The rental is located very close to Volcano National Park. It is a short drive to gas, grocery and such, but this is Big Island and it's country, like any other country setting, you drive a little longer to anything. We visited the entire island in several days, so the extra driving was already in our plans. We did not find the location to be an issue at all, it was wonderful to be out where we could see the stars at night! Overall we were beyond comfortable staying here, it was very nice and comfortable. My husband commented that it was better than most hotels that we had stayed at in prior vacations, and we like to stay at nice hotels! So that is a huge compliment. We would definitely stay here again or recommend this locations to anyone!

                            The online description and pictures are lovely, but don't do this wonderful apartment justice. Everything is top quality from the granite kitchen to the custom tile bathroom. Very clean and comfortable. I missed the picture of the hot tub online, so we were very pleased to discover it when we arrived. It was just what we needed after a day of hiking at Volcano National Park. David and Bonnie were very welcoming and helpful. They even supplied a delicious breakfast! Very highly recommend!

                            We've stayed in this apartment for 4 nights. It is very well equipped, clean, spacious, cosy and comfortable. The decor is beautiful with a lot of attention to details. The location is a bit isolated but we really liked the tranquility of the place. They sent us a map and driving instructions so it was quite easy to find. It's a great place to come back to after a full day hiking and exploring the area - It's a 20 min drive to Volcanoes National Park entry. David and Bonnie are really nice hosts and very helpfull. They make sure you have everything you need and they do their best to make you feel at home (thanks for the delicious fruit and cake!!). This was really a home away from home. We would highly recommend this place.
