  • A River Runs Through It.

    "Great place. Very reasonable price. Beautiful grounds. Very nice owners. We'll be staying there again on our next visit to the Big Island. Only thing missing were spices in the kitchen. Bring your own."

  • We Love, love, love the Pepeekeo house

    "How do you describe Paradise on Earth? We were a party of six adults who thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this house, which felt like “home”, for two weeks. Everything we needed was already there; all we had to do was go grocery shopping. The atmosphere was perfect, from the breathtaking sunrises visible from all rooms of the house, to relaxing by the pool in the beautiful landscaped backyard or reading a book on the screened in lanai that overlooks the sea in the afternoons, to falling asleep to the music of the coqui frogs and the rain at night. (There has been a sofa added to the living room, which made it nice for everyone to gather in the evenings.) The Location is perfect to visit Akaka Falls, Mauna Kea, the Volcanoes or all the little beaches we found while exploring the coastline. We fell in love with the people on the Hilo side of the Island, they were warm and welcoming, much more so than on the Kona side of the Island. Don't miss: Kens Pancake House in Hilo (Sumo!) Richardson's black sand beach on Kamehameha St. Each time we went there, we would find several large sea turtles resting in the crystal clear pools. The Farmer's Market in Hilo on Wednesday and Saturday has great local fruits, vegetables and souvenirs which help to support the local people and the community. If mosquito’s love you, like they love me, there is a lady selling “Lavender insect repellent” by Pelindaba, under the tents. It works and smells nice! You can get very inexpensive snorkel gear and water shoes at Wal-Mart. You will want at least the shoes or you will cut your feet up on the volcanic rocks. (We left ours for the next guests) Last, but most definitely not least, is the property manager Randall. Randall was very warm and attentive without being intrusive. He had the house in perfect welcoming condition and offered suggestions for things to do on the rainy days. I have already recommended this home away from home to our family and friends We've only been gone four days, and I am already “Home sick”. We will most definitely be back. Aloha.....Mahalo Nui Loa"

  • 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 ."

  • Beautiful Oceanfront Home

    "We stayed for 9 nights. Even though the weather was not ideal, the pool and spa were great. While we were a little early for whales, we saw plenty of turtles. The sound of the surf and rain at night was very relaxing.The home has great kitchen amenities and the beds were very comfortable. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. Volcanoes National Park is a quick ride up the hill. Hilo is close as well. Traffic does back up in the afternoon commute, but there are lanes being added to the highway to remedy this."
