  • 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"

  • Great place!

    "We stayed here 4 nights before heading out to Kona. The house was absolutely beautiful, clean, and well kept. We knew it was going to be a beautiful home and we were still impressed with how well designed it was and how beautiful it's been maintained. We ate in every day: breakfast and dinner and the kitchen was pretty well equipped though the dish washer can be replaced and the knives should be replaced with something better. We loved the location of the house, very secluded and view of the ocean was absolutely amazing. We loved hearing the waves and voice of the insects. We would stay here again and highly recommend it. Beware that there's no access to the beach at the house and there isn't really any nice beaches that we could find (with similar quality to Hapuna Beach or Mauna Kea Beach) in Hilo. It took us about 20 minutes to go into Hilo downtown for shopping. Highly recommend the farmer market if interested in exotic/tropical fruits."

  • Great getaway!

    "When we arrived we felt immediately the hospitality that other reviewers have described. David and Sophie are outstanding hosts! It felt like we were visiting with friends! The view was spectacular, the accommodation was spacious and clean. We truly enjoy our time there. A great place to relax, put your feet up and find new friends!! The description of the property and the other reviews all accurately describe the place - it's a great oasis! We happened to be there during Christmas 2014 and New Years 2015, and David and Sophie were so very kind to include us in their holiday get togethers! We truly appreciated their hospitality. And of course the 3 fur kids were superb as well! We would certainly stay here again, the location is great to visit Big Island, and the hosts are superb! Thank you for sharing this your place of paradise !"

  • Very comfortable and quiet

    "We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful house that is right in the heart of Hilo. We were amazed at how quiet it was because we were just a few minutes from downtown on a fairly busy street. Amazed that we didn't need the air conditioning, open windows provided wonderful cross breeze. We have stayed in many vacation rentals and this is the best stocked kitchen we have seen to date. Absolutely everything we needed was at our finger tips. Beds and furniture were very comfortable. We would like to see just a few more soaps and paper products supplied, otherwise it was perfect. Any questions or issues were addressed right away. would recommend this house to everyone and will most likely try to rent it again on our next trek to the Big Island."
