  • 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."

    "We loved the house all the comforts of home and more! Our stay was nirvana, the ocean views, and pastures were outstanding, the fragrance of the gardenias, the trade winds at night! We will be back for sure. A WONDERFUL TIME!!! Frank, stella, and Dominique."

    "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."

  • wonderful stay

    "We loved the location. Great access to the north of the island. The property was great. When we booked it we thought the hot tub was something we wouldn't use. But we used it every day. Perfect way to unwind each night and great way to start the day. I would highly recommend staying here."
