  • Charming Cabin!

    "We had the opportunity to stay just a few days for our 25th wedding anniversary in this very warm, comfortable, and clean cabin. Nice lake view, the home and deck offer ample space for a much larger group, but we were able to feel cozy and comfortable, just the two of us! Ada was super responsive to any questions we had and we truly enjoyed our stay! Would definitely return and bring friends!"

  • Great place to geet away from the noise of the city

    "Awesome location between Hilo and Kona, so you can enjoy the whole island. Only an 1.5 hours to Hilo instead of 3hrs from Kona. 1 hour from the volcano park. very clean and a large space to live in, large patio windows, full kitchen was great to use. Communication with owner was professional and prompt, answered all questions. It was like a home away from home really. Everything we needed was available. the local area is an old lava flow so If you like hiking and bizarre rock formations, you can wet your appetite right from the back yard. We loved it. there is a grocery store, gas station, pizza shops, bbq food, breakfast place all nearby just off the main highway (about 4 miles away). if you like Hiking I highly recommend volcano national park to start. there is a ton of other places to hike. also Snorkeling is good at black sand beach, scuba dive in Kona (Big island divers is the best- DO THE MANTA DIVE) as Hilo is not as good (visibility)."

    "We just returned from a week stay at the condo and it was very nice. The unit was clean, well equipped and very well located. The beach is steps away as well as all of the attractions of Waikiki Beach. Cathy was very pleasant and helpful as was the building/hotel staff. Thanks for a great stay!!!!"

  • PERFECT, PERFECT !!

    "The cottage is very very nice, great location, peaceful and great views from the deck. It is beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly need and more. The owners are great to deal with and very helpful, having the use of their pass for Hunting Island Park was appreciated. If you are looking for 5 star place in the Beaufort area to stay this is it....Thank You"

Top United Kingdom Travel Attractions and Activities

The United Kingdom is made up of four separate countries -- England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Each of these regions has its own wealth of attractions but there are a few things that they have in common. Throughout the UK, you will find ancient castles and ruins of former fortresses. Each of these has its own unique tale to tell. Many of the castles are still in use today, either as royal residences, museums or boutique hotels. Scotland and Northern Ireland in particular are known for their impressive and ancient castles.

The UK is a popular golfing destination; Northern Ireland and Scotland rank as two of the best golfing destinations. There is the famous St. Andrews Golf Course in Scotland where leading PGA tournaments are played each year. There are literally hundreds of other golf courses to choose from. In the cities, such as London and Edinburgh, there are many historical sites to visit. As the nation's capital London has a rich and detailed history. Here you can see the famous attractions of Buckingham Palace, St. Paul's Cathedral and the London Tower Bridge. There is also the famous museum of waxworks called Madam Tussaud's where you can see famous personalities from around the world immortalized in wax.

Seasons to Visit the United Kingdom

The weather of the United Kingdom is characterized by rain, and a lot of it. The advantage of this is that the rural landscapes are perpetually green and very scenic. Winters are generally quite long and in the central and northern regions, snowfalls are not uncommon. Winter starts from mid-October and generally lasts until the end of April. Spring and autumn are usually quite short-lived. Summer is from June to August and daytime temperatures can get quite hot. On a sunny day, especially if it is on the weekend, you will see many of the locals out and about making the most of the good weather. Summertime is traditionally the peak tourist season and major tourist attractions can get very crowded. If you are willing to travel out of season and possible put up with a little bit of bad weather, you can benefit from some great travel deals.
