  • Big Island Ohana

    "Aloha Joan, Thank you so much for allowing us to rent your beautiful condo! We loved it there. Aside from the blinds and closets being a little old everything else was perfect! They had beach chairs and snorkel gear and much much more! The kitchen was packed with all your cooking needs! And the bathrooms were amazing! Super clean and very roomy! We will definitely recommend this place to our friends and family! And we would love to rent from you folks again... Mahalo, Liana"

  • Great condo.

    "I've stayed in this rental unit numerous times. I've also seen many other units in the Islands. I prefer this condo. because it is on the golf course and you have unrestricted views of the volcanoes. It is south facing so you get all day sun. The area between the golf course and the condo is large, perfect for the kids to run around. 5 Grand kids. We stay 2 weeks at a time. We love the nearby restaurants but I enjoy a few barbequed meals at home. There is a great market less than a mile away. I like staying on property when we go out for dinner. There are are 10 restaurants to choose from. Our favorites are in order of preference: Monstera, Beach club, esp. dinner, Tommy Bahama, Ruth Chris's, Canoe House ( beautiful setting. Food not as great as it once was). Best airline direct to Kona: Alaska. Spa, tennis courts, and workout are a 5 min. walk. All new equipment. (There is something wrong about driving to exercise). Great golf at Mauna Lani. Discounted for renters. Also try Big Island, Haupuna, and the very difficult Mona Kea. (Forgive misspelled words). So much more to do. B-1 is always clean, free internet, and very relaxing to sit in the lounge chairs and fall asleep. A perfect vacation spot. We are returning in April. Bev and Bruce"

  • Wonderful home

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The home was large and beautiful. The view was amazing - we saw some gorgeous sunsets from the deck. Other reviews are correct - there is no need for air conditioning in the house. The breeze and fans keep the house cool. The only complaint is the driveway's steepness, but we just parked on the street and it worked out fine."

  • Wonderful stay!

    "We were thrilled with our recent stay at this home. The house was even better than it appears in the photos. We did not have to buy any supplies like shampoo, detergent, etc as it was very well supplied. The kitchen had anything we needed to cook including some spices, etc. The house was immaculately clean and the caretaker was incredibly responsive making sure we didn't have any issues. We had some trouble getting the hottub to heat and the problem was taken care of asap even though it was Christmas Eve. The location of the house in the Mauna Lani property is ideal, a short walk to the beach club. The owner provides boogie boards, beach toys, and coolers that we were thrilled to have the use of. We recommend you rent bicycles as they are a great way to get around the property. Washer and dryer were great and used alot. There is a small office off of the master which would be good if you had a young child or baby that you wanted to keep nearby. The outdoor area is beautiful, we used the outdoor grill many times. We cannot say enough good things about this house."

Big Island Travel Tips

Hawaii is hands-down one of the most sought-after destinations in the U.S. There are eight main islands, and the largest and northernmost is called the Island of Hawaii -- better known as The Big Island -- to avoid confusing it with the rest of the state. It is a paradise filled with unparalleled natural wonders and all but two of the world’s climate zones, which serve as a home for a wealth of biodiversity. Come get your own slice of heaven on earth.

Kau

What’s a better sight to see than an active volcano spewing lava? Visit the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to see it for yourself. The Big Island is not only big, it’s still growing! Kilauea has been erupting since 1983. Situated 30 miles southwest of Hilo, it is one of the most active volcanoes on the planet. As a whole, the park boasts more than 150 miles of hiking trails through craters, rainforests, deserts and the volcanoes themselves. It is even considered a World Heritage Site. Amazingly, 250,000 to 650,000 cubic yards of lava are produced each day, which is enough to cover a road 20 miles long. Hurry, because no one knows when Kilauea will stop erupting! Catch this phenomenal natural event while supplies last! The visitor center is open from 7:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For the science behind it, take a walk through the Thomas A. Jaggar Museum for geologic displays, videos and maps. Besides the volcano, you and the family can explore Crater Rim Drive, an 11-mile scenic drive within the park.

Kohala Coast

Along the western edge you will find the black lava fields of the Kohala Coast. However, a little further south lies the yang to its ying, Hapuna Beach, which is bursting with Hawaii’s biggest white-sand beaches. Let’s put it this way: Hapuna has hit international top ten lists year after year. The landscape are pristine, and the vistas couldn’t get much better. At Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve, you’ll discover lava rock carvings etched hundreds of years ago by native Hawaiians. No one is exactly sure what they mean, but it is generally thought that these carvings are records of birth and deaths from the ancient culture. There’s no better time than now, so treat yourself to luxury living as you can freshen up at top-tier spas to recharge and feel yourself again. Don’t forget to hit a round of golf on the world-class fairways and greens. Jack Nicklaus designed Hualalai Golf Course, while Robert Trent Jones Sr. had his hand at Mauna Kea Resort. Rest assured, you won’t go wrong.

Hamakua Coast

Hamakua Coast, on the eastern side, is famous for its waterfalls and riveting rainforest. Explore the heart-stopping Akaka Falls, where waters spill 442 feet through a gorge into the river below. You’ll be surrounded by bamboo, birds of paradise and huge ti plants along the way. The coast is ribbed with valleys and gulches that you’ll see during your drive at the Hamakua Heritage Corridor, a trip that passes rainforests and waterfalls alike. Unwind in 275 acres of beauty at the World Botanical Garden, home to the Umauma Falls, before you go zip-lining along vistas of the Pacific Ocean. It’s a perfect adventure for thrill-seekers young and old!

Hilo

You’ll be shouting “ahola” as you arrive in Hilo International Airport in this eastern region. The landscape brims with more rainforests and gardens than you will know what to do with. For science lovers, enjoy the amazing exhibits in the Pacific Museum and Imiloa Astronomy Center, Hilo’s newest top-notch attraction. To get a fresh bite to eat, pick out your favorite exotic fruit at Hilo Farmers Market, a knockout among locals. Cafe Pesto serves seafood caught the same day that will leave you and your family wowed.

Puna

Puna packs those black-sand beaches that Hawaii is known for. Tourists flock to Kalapana, a historic town destroyed by lava. Today, the site is the prime spot to see the lava reach the sea. A few miles away, you can see Keaau, where lands used to be covered in sugar canes. At the Lava Tree State Park, there are molds of trees that lava formed in the 1700s. Swim in pools heated by the volcanoes beside regions rich in tropical fruits and vegetation. Isaac Hale Beach Park provides one of the island’s most coveted surf spots, although swimming is not recommended due to the strong currents.

In Hawaii, you’ll leave with more than just a lei around your neck, you’ll come home with zip-line extravaganzas, volcano explosions and Pacific seafood dinners floating on your mind.
