"What can I say about this place that hasn't been said before? As someone who is traveled all over the world, Cliff House is such a special place. The vista from the deck, the constantly changing tapestry of color, the sounds of the night. I told Richard, the wonderfully gracious owner, that if he would just put in a Thai restaurant downstairs in the carport and build a stairway to the beach below, I'd never leave the property. In spite of our good intentions to drive into Waimea for dinner, in two visits we've never been able to pull ourselves away from the lanai in the evening. This is the place for one seeking tranquility and a Hawaii vastly different than the usual experience. Like someone said, leave the gold clubs behind. Five thumbs up!!"

"My husband and I spent the last two nights of our 11 day trip to the Big Island here at the Hideaway. After driving down the long driveway and turning into the carport we were blown away by the view before us. Easily the best view on the island (or any island for that matter). The house itself was very comfortable and had everything we needed. We loved falling asleep to the sound of frogs, although earplugs did come in handy at one point as we slept with all the windows open. It was amazing to wake up early and just sit up in bed to see the view. The house is about 9 miles from town so while it's not too far it may be easier for some to get food and eat meals at the house. There is a fully equipped kitchen (although no microwave) that would make it convenient to prepare meals. We did that our second night and had a great time sitting in the yard and looking at the view while having dinner. The house is about 1/2 mile from the Waipio Valley lookout and it was a very easy walk to the lookout and then a not so easy (but definitely recommended) walk to the beach below.
In addition, we loved meeting Lani the dog. We were missing our two dogs at home and to have Lani come around often was a nice touch. She spent an entire afternoon hanging out with us in the yard and even fell asleep on the porch when we went to bed. When we awoke she was wagging her tail at the door about 2 minutes later. She is a super sweet dog who isn't a fan of bananas, but really loves malasadas and pizza crust. :-)
I would highly recommend this wonderful property!"

"This is a wonderful little get away up in the green hills with a quaint lane and bridge. It is a great place to watch the birds in the yard and enjoy the flowers, but the best part is that you feel so cared for. Karin provides a wonderful personalized assortment of goodies for breakfast and snacks. There are fresh flowers everywhere (unless you are allergic). There is a wealth of cooking utensils, pots and pans. We enjoy cooking at home and this made it easy. The Cottage was one of the highlights of our trip to Hawaii. When we return we would want to stay here again."

Panoramic ocean and mountain views; secluded vacation home
"We enjoyed the quiet, beautiful home during our stay in Laupahoehoe for a family reunion. Although we spent most of our days at the Laupahoehoe Point for meals and activities, it was relaxing to come "home" to this restful and comfortable place in the evenings. The house was nicely equipped with a great kitchen and the washer and dryer came in handy. The great view from the deck helped us to wind down from the days' activities and to better appreciate the beauty of this side of the island."
