  • BREATHTAKING!

    "Don't read this if you're coming to use your new golf clubs, or plan to be seen with the elite at a five star resort. BUT, if you want to stay awhile in one of the world's most beautiful and private locations, don't miss the opportunity to come here. After you pass through electric gates and travel down the private lane, you'll pass grassy fields with several cows and a couple of horses belonging to the owner who lives in the only other home sequestered on this large property. You'll park your car in the garage containing a washer and dryer for your use and ascend a staircase that opens on a large deck with gorgeous views of the coast. We took all our meals on this deck and found it hard to leave. Entering the nicely decorated home you will find a number of surprises awaiting you; beautiful tropical flowers, tropical, fruit chocolate candy, Kona coffee beans, etc. The owner, Richard, is one of the most pleasant persons I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I could go on and on, but the two fingers I type with are growing tired. Give youself a real Hawaiian treat and come to this fantastic property. Robert Small"

  • 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."

  • Magnificant and Magical

    "I have lived on the Big Island for 20 years and visited Waipio Vally, with friends and family, but only to the lookout... or the "hike" down to the beach. I have never had the opportunity to stay in such an amazing and magical home as this one! I fell in love with every aspect of the home. From the moment you walk in, you will be in awe. The pictures are all excellent and accurate, but the essence of the magic of the home can be felt- the minute you walk through the front gates!!! You have views that you could not see from anywhere else, Maui in the distance, waterfalls down the side of the mountain and if you are out on the landing deck you feel as if you are on the edge of the world looking out over the amazing ocean. I did not want to leave. Every room was beautifully decorated with thoughtfulness to every aspect of your comforts. Loved the private outdoor shower off of our bathroom. Take the time too look around at all of the beautiful artwork, sit in comfy alcoves, bask in the sun by the pool, or just read a book on the comfortable couch overlooking the valley. If you want an extremely fun tour, try the Ride The Rim ATV adventure. The guides were so helpful and we had a blast, at first we were kind of nervous because we had never ridden one, but they were extremely patient in teaching us all how to operate and safely ride, we did a test course first, so we all felt comfortable before going out on the 4 mile trail-which ends up at an amazing waterfall where we swam and cooled off. We stopped for breathtaking views along the way and again I was so blessed as to see parts of the valley I never have, even as an islander... If you are looking for the memory of a life time, I highly recommend this as it! Eileen was so wonderful, funny and helpful, you will really enjoy meeting her, she is truly the spirit of aloha! Thanks so much for everything, huge hugs! Karen"

  • A peaceful, magical paradise

    "My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights - a return visit from last year. Paula greeted us with a bottle of champagne and a bowl of tropical fruit from the garden; pineapple, avocado, star fruit, lilikoi, grapefruit, tangerines and guava. Paula and Dan are wonderful hosts - they were there if we needed them, yet gave us the privacy to feel like we were the only ones there. This property is spectacular! One night, we soaked in the tub on the deck while watching the milky way and shooting stars overhead, and a lightning storm over Maui. All we could hear were crickets and coqui frogs. Last year we stayed in the Studio, this year we stayed in the Cottage. Both are very comfortable with gorgeous views. The property is close enough to Honoka'a for shopping and dinner (check out Il Mondo's), and Waipi'o valley for a hike, but remote enough to relax. We will definitely be going back because it feels like home."
