  • Restful retreat.

    "I stayed a week at Jack & Tonya's wonderful home. It was quiet, peaceful & spotless. My husband & I are familiar with the area as we vacation in Puna 1-2 times a year since 1996. So sometimes we want to spend a whole day not even leaving the rental and just relaxing and forgetting about our hectic city life. This was a great spot to get away from it all. Somedays we would hike in Volcano, out to Shipman Beach or just around Puna and somedays we just stayed at the house relaxing by the pool and soaking up warm Puna sunshine. Every morning started with a walk to the cliffs to watch the morning waves and every evening ended with a walk to the cliffs to have a "Puna" sunset. Tonya was very attentive and helpful. We really enjoyed talking with Tui (what a brilliant, insightful and all around cool kid!). And we totally fell in love with Bebe the dog. If you are looking for a home base to explore the East side or just a place to kick back and chill for a week, this is the spot."

  • Gorgeous view!

    "This is a very comfortable house. Kitchen was clean and well equipped. View is to die for, especially in whale season. The bedrooms and baths are clean and well appointed. Two master suites, plus two other bedrooms. One of the masters is on the ground floor. Quite a few gnats had died in the window sills (a common Hilo issue), but no other bugs were seen. The location is very convenient to Hilo town. The area is quiet and the house feels private even though it's in a neighborhood. I highly recommend this location."

  • A Hidden GEM on the Big Island

    "Not to start any debate but I strongly disagree with the latest comment that was made. If you read the information about the rental you would be very happy with the accommodations, price and location. For $90 this is a steal and truly a hidden gem on the Big Island. Hotels are 3x that price and have nothing close to the atmosphere, location, and experience. If you want to avoid a little cob-web, ditch the heat, and be in AC..... this is NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU! However, if you love the fresh air, trade winds and morning showers with sunny afternoons this is it! The unit is clean, nice in size and has everything you need to have a relaxing getaway. The owners are very friendly and helpful in any way they can. We felt like part of the family here as they shared the ALOHA Spirit during our stay! We would come again without a doubt!! Thanks for the great place!"

  • Lush Country Hawaii at its Best!

    "Our 3 week Hawaiian vacation was split between the Kona and Hilo sides of the island. While on the East side we stayed in this great home. The home itself was perfect for our family that includes 2 kids (7, 11) and three adults. The kids loved the games, fuse ball, darts, and the large areas to play both inside and out. I loved the great kitchen that was well stocked and a joy to use. The whole house was very clean and well stocked. The setting was beyond amazing with the view off of the huge lanai just breathtaking. You could see the sun rising over the fields, palm trees and ocean! Across the street was the top rated smoothie shop on the island that is surrounded by the farm that all the fruit for the delicious smoothies is grown...great perk! Just down the road is the Botanical gardens and trails to the ocean (make sure to try Donkey trail just before you reach the gardens, it is an awesome hike through the jungle to the ocean). The home if within 15 minutes of Hilo, an hour from the Volcano, and super convenient to the Hamakua coast. The owner was a joy to work with and gave us great recommendations of local things to see and do. The only thing small thing that was a negative for us (although not all from reading the guest book) was the very loud Coqui Frogs that sang every night. Closing the windows helped. Other than that minor thing I would say that this house was a perfect fit for us...would most certainly rent again!"
