  • Lovely relaxing stay

    "Lovely little hideaway not far off the beaten path. This was our first stay in a VRBO property and we loved it. We stayed in 2 other resort properties while in HI and this was our favorite lodging. The cottage is a nice mixture of quaint and upscale spa. It is very spacious. The bathroom, bedroom, kitchen and sitting area are all sizeable. The front porch also has a nice swing to relax on. While you could sleep up to 6 I think this is perfect for a family of 4. There is an upstairs loft with a futon that would be nice for an older child (though I would not put younger ones up there because they would have to climb a ladder). The setting is also lovely. After turning off the highway and driving for a few minutes you feel are in the country. At night the frogs serenade you to sleep. Also, you will be visited by the owner's dogs. If you are a dog lover, you will be in heaven. If you are not a dog lover (I am not) you will be by the time you leave. Bunny is one of the cutest, spunkiest little things I have ever seen. The only downsides to this property (and there are always downsides) is that light sleepers might be bothered by the frogs. A pair of earplugs (which every light sleeper should travel with) would take care of things. I myself am a light sleeper and was not bothered by the frogs. The roosters also crow in the morning but they did not bother me. Most folks will be awake anyways because of the time difference with the mainland. I would return and stay in this property in a heart beat. Amazing value for the price."

  • Home away from home

    "This rental is closer to Puna then Hilo but that wasn't a problem as we had a car. The rental was in great condition, exactly as the pictures show. I kept in close contact with Trish (owner) as we were arriving shortly after two hurricanes and she was always prompt to answer my emails and any questions I had. My family and I really appreciated having the cooler, snorkeling gear, boogie boards, and many other supplies that made this trip so enjoyable. Without a doubt, I would stay here again on my next visit. I strongly recommend this property to anyone looking for a home away from home while at the Big Island. We went around the whole island and favorite highlights are: national volcano (specially at night time), farmer markets, waterfalls, and beaches (black sand and green sand beaches). Thank you Trish and Doug for sharing your lovely home with us."

  • Nice place ,with new owner it shows

    "Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: the place was all you can ask for had everything you needed in fact more chairs then needed after the new owner showed up one day with five old dinning chairs to apparently store here! Oh well no biggie just seems odd they didn't fit anywhere. Then the day I'm leaving she's at the door (10:55 am) with a shopping cart full of nick knacks saying she needs to add more things ? Thank goodness I was all packed but still had to get her to move her cart out of the door way so I could pick up my stuff and get out the door. She was very nice though ."

  • Excellent Snorkeling Place

    "We stayed 4 days and fell in love with the place. Location is great, just across the street from the tidepools. The cottage is very clean,kitchen is well stocked with cooking gear and condiments, the gas grill was a plus. Greatly appreciated the snorkel gear,mats and coolers,beach towels that were available for use. The bed was very comfortable. The nights were serenaded by birds,frogs etc.Just loved it. Snorkeling here was SOOOOOOO much better than the Na Pali Coast in Kauai . Highly recommend IKI HONU."
