  • Absolutely wonderful

    "After returning home from a much needed vacation to the Big Island, we continue to reflect fondly on our wonderful stay at Don & Susan's rental home. We have rented many different homes on Homeaway and VRBO in Hawaii and elsewhere and have learned to depend heavily on other visitors' review comments, especially for longer stays. The great reviews this home had online caught our attention and the guestbook at the home with many more outstanding reviews made us confident we were in for a treat. Since we were staying for 5 weeks this trip we wanted a place that would be comfortable, clean, relaxing, centrally located, conducive to working at home when needed, and spacious enough for visitors. Wow, this rental home exceeded all of our expectations! The construction of the home is very impressive and the spacious layout is just perfect for sharing with family or friends. What a perfect place to relax with family and enjoy the peaceful scenery by day and magnificent starry displays at night. Even the wet days were enjoyable as we watched the pastures and forests around blanketed with rain. We loved being within an hour of both Waimea and Hilo, and not too much further to Kona. Frequent photo trips to Waipio Valley and Laupahoehoe Point were just minutes away. And to top it all off, we couldn't have asked for better hosts. Don & Susan are so pleasant and made us feel at home right from the start. Having lived there for decades, their recommendations took us to enjoyable places we hadn't yet experienced on other trips here. The periodic gifts of fruit, avocados, or jelly were great. And the little things like kindly offering to have our garbage taken to the transfer station, drinking water refilled, and linens washed really made a great stay even better. We had been accustomed to doing those things for ourselves in other rental homes on the Big Island but graciously accepted. Mahalo Don & Susan for a very memorable stay to our favorite vacation spot."

  • The Cliff House

    "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!!"

  • Perfect stay!

    "My wife and I spend the first 3 nights of our honeymoon here and it was the perfect way to start. The location is great! It's far enough off the beaten path that we had plenty of privacy and quiet but also in a great location for exploring so much of the island. We didn't spend much time at the house because we were out exploring but the time we did spend was exactly what we wanted. The views are amazing and the cottage and property are very well kept. We loved picking fresh fruit from the orchard in the morning for our breakfast and Paula and Dan were great hosts. If you're into hiking there's no better place than Waipio Valley and you can walk there from your front door. We did this on our first full day and were lucky enough to see wild horses on the beach. It was an amazing trip from start to finish!"
