Recent Ka'u District property reviews

  • Gorgeous house with very private and quiet location!

    "We stayed here from May25, 2014 until June 30, 2014 while we were looking for a long term rental, and thoroughly enjoyed this home. It is so beautiful and we especially loved the kitchen, the vaulted wood beam ceilings, and glass door stand up showers. Very nice breeze throughout the day and night with the windows open. Had everything we needed and we were very comfortable there. Raul was easy to work with and very hospitable to us and made it an easy stay. If you want to explore the south part of the island, then this is the place to be. It is on the south tip and you can go east or west to Hilo or Kona. It is near South Point green sand beaches which is awesome. Volcano National Park isn't too far either. Ka'u has the macadamia nut and Ka'u coffee tasting that is pretty cool too. There is a pretty cool view of the ocean on clear days so you still feel and remember that you are in Hawaii. Huge lanai that is comfortable and keeps you dry when it is raining. We used the yoga mats and exercised on the lanai everyday with 5 of us, so it is very big! Thanks again Raul for allowing us to stay in your home and we hope others will find this review useful as well. Semper Fi brother and God bless!"

  • Spacious house in a quiet area

    "This house is in a little neighborhood about 40 minutes from the National Park. There is so much room that, while we had 3, we were thinking we could have added another family and been comfortable. There are a number of activities within minutes (South Point, coffee mill, lava tube, etc.) If you are looking for a quiet place to stay, this is it."

  • Enjoyable cottage, but can be rustic.

    "This is a unique house. There are a lot of pluses, but also a few rough edges. I want to give a straight forward review to make sure future renters have clear expectations. First of all, the house is very remotely located. We found the solitude to be quite enjoyable. It is about 30-45 minutes away from the Volcanos National Park. There nearest small town, Pahala, is about 5-7 minute drive. The town has limited services. It's a very relaxing and very quiet area. However, because of the remote location, there will be little to no cell phone service. The owner provides internet wi-fi. The area tends to get light rain. The elevation of the area is 2000+ feet, so the days in mid-January were very nice and could get a little hot. Because of the elevation, the nights can get very crisp, around 50-60 degrees. The house has an "open air" floor plan, so it does not have central air or heat and is not well insulated, so bring some warm clothes…it will be chilly! Because of the lack of insulation, we found a lot of spiders throughout the house. Keep in mind there is only one small bathroom for all five bedrooms and the only shower is the outdoor shower. The outdoor shower has a romantic flair to it, but by the end of our stay, we were longing for a traditional bathroom. The grounds are very beautiful and peaceful, only one or two cars passed the house during our 4-day stay. We did not meet the owner, but she was congenial over the phone. As another reviewer mentioned, we also had a late night trespasser that left us wondering who could have visited during the middle of the night. With that said, the house has some very charming and old-fashioned traits about it and wouldn't dissuade future renters from staying, just keep in mind it is a bit rustic."

  • Great vacation, very nice hosts

    "We stayed at the other rental house owned by Barney and Elizabeth. It was just perfect for our party of 4 adults and 3 little kids. The farm is perfect for the kids, they loved the sheep and turkeys, running around in the huge yard and also collecting and cracking open the mac nuts. Even though there is a couple of houses on their property, every one of them is still very private and secluded. Barney and Elizabeth are super nice hosts, always helpful and giving us tips for beaches, restaurants, etc. We had an awesome time, and hopefully will be back soon! Thank you so much for a great vacation!"
