  • Beautiful Vacation Home

    "We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful house. The view was fantastic, and the house is very comfortable. The area is quiet, so we enjoyed relaxing all morning, and venturing out in the afternoon. This is the wet side of the island in February, so we got the expected mix of sunshine and rain. In our case, we tended to get sunshine in the morning most days, and then it often clouded up and rained in the afternoon. We swam in the pool most days. It is a bit cold getting in, but not too bad. We did not see any whales from the house the week we were there, but we saw a lot on the other side of the island, west of Waimea. The beds were very comfortable, not too firm or soft. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean. The pool was clean. The mermaid fountain was working fine. The driveway was just a bit tricky for my wife. She tended to spin the tires just a bit going up with our 2wd car. I had no problem. The large sliding glass door is getting a bit sticky and difficult to open, you need to be very careful as it takes a bit of force, and I was worried it might break easily. My family did miss having a TV in the common area for occasional use. Overall, this was one of our more enjoyable vacations ever. I often caught myself just looking around and smiling. If I get the chance, I will rent here again."

    "This was my third visit to Skandia cottage, I like it so much. For me it provides the perfect environment from which to explore the Island, take photographs and experience the aloha of the real Hawaii. The cottage always feels fresh and inviting and provides everything I could possibly wish for during my stay. Thank you for making each stay so very special."

  • Nirvana!

    "Stayed at the Cliff House for 4 nights on our second stop during our 30th anniversary trip to the Big Island. I don't even know where to start. Everything about our stay was idyllic! I expected a rustic, simple cottage. The woodwork instead was just beautiful (what a ceiling!). The love and care that Kristan has put into every detail is quite evident - the art, the sculptures, the flowers - inside and out, just beautiful. The house is saturated in local culture. Books about the island and Hawaiian legend abound. And the view!!! Breathtaking, spectacular, awesome, amazing, holy - pick your favorite word and it still falls short. We really did feel like we were all alone in the Garden of Eden. Drinking wine on the lanai as the sun went down. Rocking on the swing in the garden. Simple delicious meals made in the well-equipped kitchen. Hot tubs watching the stars every night. Big comfortable bed with soft sheets and puffy pillows. I even loved the silky tropical curtains hanging from bamboo on the windows. Great road for jogging along the water too (don't be put off by the many friendly dogs who come out to say hi along the way). The house is minutes away from the Waipio Valley - a spectacular (but steep) hike down to a pristine black sand beach. You can also take a tour from the store just down the street. The quaint little town of Honokaa is just 10 minutes away with a few restaurants (Café Il Mondo was great for pizza and calzone. Also picked up a terrific CD of the local high school jazz band there!) Our very favorite beach was Hapuna Beach - gorgeous white sand beach great for swimming and snorkeling (drive to the left access area for shade and snorkeling). The restaurant at Hapuna Beach Prince resort was terrific for lunch. The beach at the Mauna Kea resort was also beautiful but the lot for public access fills up by around 8 am. The only other thing I can say is that I almost cried when we left. If you're looking for a romantic time with the one you love in paradise, look no further than the Cliff House."
