"My wife and I had a great time at this cabin. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet and peaceful place to spend your vacation. The cabin is a little bit off the beaten path but you will experience the big island as it really is and there are many wonderful places within an hours drive.
The house was clean and very cozy and had a nice big yard. This place is very private and quiet since it is out in the country.
We also got to meet with some of the neighbors who help with maintenance and housekeeping if it is needed, and they were great people. They were even kind enough to offer us some fresh bananas that they picked off their trees! There is also a very cool temple down the road that is nice and relaxing to visit."

"Upon our arrival late Christmas night, we were greeted by a celestial show of stars before we even made one step inside the house. At that point, we felt safe to say that our trip was destined to be a success. The pictures of the home do not depict the interior's size. The master bedroom was huge with large picture windows and screens which we opened to enjoy the ocean's breeze. From the porch we could spy the most southern point in the U.S. Our location was advantageous in visiting both sides of the Big Island. We were able to leisurely tour and hike portions of Volcano National Park which wasn't too far away. We visited the black and green beaches of the area and even witnessed a large turtle resting on the sand. We contacted the owners several times and they were more than helpful to direct us to the beach below the house- kind of a hike, but we endured. We do extensive research on vacation homes we rent and were well satisfied in selecting this house as our base for our Big Island adventures. If you thrive in a busy, noisy locale, you might consider somewhere else. However, if you like solitude, no sirens, no barking dogs, no loud trucks, no hot rod cars, or rowdy neighbors, then you have found the right location. We don't think you will regret it."

"The condo has everything a couple could need and the grounds are very pretty and serene. The pool and hot tub were great. The black sand beach is a short walk away, but to me is not good for much other than to look at with the rocky shore and cold water. I can't give five stars because the view from our particular unit was not spectacular, and an ocean front view was at the very top of my list. You can only see a sliver of the ocean between other condos. Plus the condo is in the middle of nowhere and not for anyone seeking a nightlife in my opinion. We had to drive very long distances to get to places, including even a decent grocery store. But there is some sightseeing nearby and the nearby volcano was a fun visit. Also, I know there are trade winds, but I found the lack of an AC uncomfortable, especially in the evenings on the upper level of the condo. Finally, the condo owner and maintenance staff were very hospitable and kind, making this a fine visit for us. I would recommend for an older couple."

"Reading the reviews of Aina Lani before we left on our trip, my partner and I wondered, “Could this cottage really be as outstanding as all of the reviews say?” Within minutes of our arrival, we knew even the most outstanding reviews could not capture the beauty of this island paradise.
Nestled in to the gorgeous Wood Valley, this secluded cabin has everything we were looking for during our stay on the Big Island: a tranquil setting, a well-stocked kitchen, and easy access to Volcanoes National Park as well as many outstanding day trips (including Green Sand Beach, secluded black sand beaches, and unique snorkeling spots). This beautifully constructed and furnished cottage (combined with the most comfortable bed I’ve ever had the pleasure of sleeping on) provided the perfect home base for our vacation.
But perhaps the most memorable aspect of our stay was our lovely hosts. Anne and David clearly take pride in this cottage. As many reviewers have already commented, Anne and David were always available to answer questions (both before and during our stay), but they also gave us plenty of privacy. Their passion for the Big Island is infectious.
Every evening we looked forward to returning to Aina Lani to relax at the end of our days of Big Island adventures."
