  • Incredible - Exactly What We Wanted - Highly Recommend This Property

    "We were looking for a peaceful relaxing setting for the second week of our Hawaiian Holiday. We got far more than we expected. Their property is delightful, beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed all the different types of fruit trees and other exotique trees on the grounds. Had so much fun feeding and watching the Koi in their pond, swimming in our own private swimming pool and being able to BBQ on our own patio. Wow - it was fantastic! Toni and Kim are warm hospitable hosts and we are very thankful for their friendship. We didn't want to leave and definitely want to return. Ronnie and Marie"

  • Absolutely outstanding rental condo

    "We have been staying at this condo for several years and it truly has become our home away from home. I am sitting on the upstairs lanai overlooking the pool as I write this review. . This condo is wonderful ... It is beautifully furnished and meticulously maintained. It is soooo comfortable here! There is a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, an awesome master suite, hi def TV, a video game console, an MP3 docking station and a Viking grill on the lanai - everything you need to help you relax and enjoy your stay. Pool access is literally steps away from the lanai. The pool is huge and also has a big spa surrounded by a waterfall. There are bikes available as well as snorkel gear ... You have to snorkel at the owners beach club ( less than 5 minutes from the condo). There is an amazing variety of fish in crystal clear water. We regularly swim with turtles and see new varieties of fish almost every time we go. Some of the best snorkeling in the islands is right here! Mauna Lani is a great resort with terrific amenities and a relaxed atmosphere. There is a coffee shop and grocery store walking distance as well as several restaurants and shops. Play the two great golf courses in Mauna Lani. We catch sunset every evening at one of several nearby beaches. All in all it is pretty hard to top this condo."

  • Big Island Delight

    "We stayed for 10 nights. It was a beautifully furnished luxury condo. Towels, hairdryers, soaps and shampoos were all there for our convenience. The air conditioning was a MUST HAVE. Relaxing in this beautiful resort after exploring the island daily was a treat. We enjoyed the pool, the A Bay View from the pool, the glorious sunsets, the other guests, the LAVA LAVA Beach Club, and the exquisite landscaping of this gorgeous piece of Paradise on the Spectacular Big Island. We hope to return if we can get a great rate."

  • Comfortable, great home close to Volcano NP

    "We really enjoyed our stay in this house. Julie was prompt in her responses as we planned our arrival and for any questions I had during the stay. There were all necessary instructions provided. It is well equipped and clean. The beds are comfortable. It is much bigger than in the pictures. It is close enough to the park (short drive). We really enjoyed staying here and would definitely come back. We went with an infant (and Julie had let us know that the house is not particularly baby proof), and the furniture etc. in the house is not very baby friendly (has sharp edges and corners). So we had to be very cautious when DS was crawling around. One small per peeve was that there was no bath soap in the bathrooms. We had some soap with us and enjoyed our stay nonetheless. No other issues. Everything else was perfect."

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.
