  • Hawaii stay near Hilo

    "We stayed at the beach house for 5 days the end of Aug 2014. This was our favorite part of our stay in Hawaii. The area was lush and tropical, and everything I envisioned when arriving on Hawaii (it was our 1st visit). We could see and hear the ocean a block away and feel the cool ocean breezes. The house was in a small subdivision of homes, but we felt like we were secluded. There were tall tropical trees surrounding the house for privacy. The wrap around porch was refreshingly cool in the evening with a grill, 2 tables and chairs and a hammock. The rental is even bigger in person than the pictures show. The kitchen, living room, and dining area were all open air. It felt like you were outside with the windows on all 3 walls. There was a small single air conditioner unit in the dining/living room area that we didn't even have to use. All of the three sided windows in the living room area could be left open even when raining, because of the generous lanai overhang. There were large floor fans that we moved into the bedrooms at night for an extra breeze. There were plenty of board games, books for entertainment and bikes in the lower garage area. One afternoon, we just chilled at the house watching local Hawaii news on the cable tv. If we wanted to cool off, the ocean was just a block away. The house was equipped with everything you could possibly need for home cooked meals. We had ice from the ice maker, there was a dishwasher, all kinds of pots, pans, dishware, etc. In fact, one night we cooked steaks on the grill, and ate outside on the porch. I felt like royalty. The master bedroom was spacious with its own private 2 sink vanity. It was on one side of the house and the other 2 bedrooms on the other side with their own shared bath. The other bedrooms were a bit smaller but still plenty roomy. There was plenty of storage for luggage and clothes. I liked the general location of the rental because it was far enough away from town to feel "away from it all" but close enough to be convenient to get groceries, shop or do tourist events (like ziplinine, helicopter rides, farmers market). The landlord was very helpful with tidbits about local attractions and upcoming events. He told us about local swimming spots like Okanakaha Beach Park (just past the ice cream shop on the right) going towards Hilo. The ponds were shallower and warmer (good for the non-swimmers in our group). I would highly recommend this rental to future vacationers."

  • 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 ."

  • 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."

  • Perfect Place for East Hawaii

    "Perfect size, close to everything (if you drive). Private lagoon steps from your back door with tropical fish and turtles. Pool. Very well appointed with a cooler, water toys, even a first aid kit and a kit for if the power is out (very thoughtful.) One thing: if you need an air conditioner to sleep, look elsewhere. no A/C here. I will book here again next time I'm in Hawaii (hopefully really soon!)"
