"Very well appointed, comfortable, upscale place with lots of room. Our two teenage children had plenty to do between the pool on the property, renting bikes and riding to the beach while we did business. We loved the private patio where we had many meals made in the beautiful kitchen. Thanks for a great stay. We recommend this place to any traveler who loves quality."

"Sea Watch is a beautifully designed, artfully decorated little jewel on the edge of the Pacific. It is clean and well maintained. It is open, with wonderful views of the ocean from every room, and the sound of the surf in the background. The lanai is a perfect place to watch the ocean. The house is situated in an inlet on the coast south of Hilo. Waves crash against the lava cliffs, and one can look down the coast to either side of the house at the tropical vegetation and the constantly changing weather.
The owner, Sam, lives next door and is friendly but unobtrusive. As others have noted, she is attentive to every need and detail. The neighborhood is quiet, with vacation homes (many quite beautiful). For quiet and privacy it is hard to beat, but one must drive a bit to get to the nearest towns.
The weather is constantly changing, from humid and rainy to evening breezes that are cool and soothing. Rain storms don't last longer than an hour or so, and generally come at night (another soothing sound!). And always the sound of tropical birdsong.
All in all a lovely place to spend time, perfect to just get away and be quiet, or a good temporary home from which to explore."

"We loved that Linda's place is off the beaten path and nestled in her orchard. The only thing missing here is more fans or A/C- it gets HOT during the day. The coqui frogs at night were amazing- loved all the chirping. Great kitchen. Linda herself is a wonderfully interesting woman- ask her for a tour of the property (we had other plans and missed out). She is quite particular though, so be ready for instructions for your stay."

"We stayed at Heaven's door for 8 nights and I can't tell you how perfect this place was. We've stayed in ocean front condos before but this was a completely different type of "treat." The home was immaculate and welcoming. It's in a great location for hitting all the spots on the Big Island. It was always our goal to get back around 4 in the afternoon so we could still sit and enjoy the privacy of this property. The grounds are just beautiful and feeding the Koi fish was a huge highlight of mine everyday! They would swim over as soon as we pulled into the driveway. I loved it! It's an absolutely incredible property an an absolutely incredible price! Thank you so much, Linda, for sharing your beautiful property with us. We have lasting memories!"
