  • Great for Glamping!

    "We really enjoyed the uniqueness of Yurt in the Sky. We were there only one night and it provided the perfect stay for a night on the Big Island. We wish we could have stayed longer. The yurt was about an hour from the Volcanoes Park, which wasn't a big deal for us. We actually headed out there 3 times in the day were there. It is definitely best if you consider this fancy camping. If you have any allergies to dust, be sure to take a Claritin before you go, 3 of our party had allergy issues, which may have been cleared up by a bit of airing of the yurt. There were spider webs on the doors and sky light but a quick swish with the broom cleared those right up. Also, it gets very chilly way up there. Unfortunately, we did not try to turn on the propane fireplace until very late in the evening. We were unable to get it working, and really did not want to bother anyone so late. Instead, we all bundled up and cuddled. The kitchen had lots of lovely spices and bits and bobs to help round out meals. We moved the propane stove onto the porch for cooking with no problem. We also found a few handy solar lamps to carry around at night. We kind of loved the neighborhood and looking at the stars. My husband kept looking at realty signs trying to convince me we should just buy a lot :) We would definitely recommend a visit, if laid back is your style. Communication with the owner was quick and easy and we were supplied with great tips and info on the yurt prior to our arrival."

  • A thoroughly enjoyable rental experience

    "We (two couples) stayed at this rental home for one full week and found it a great retreat from the hustle and bustle of towns we could have chosen. Its location close to the southern tip gave us easy access to either side of the Big Island and we could plan accordingly, not having to retrace driving miles, making this a time saver for us. The quiet and solitude of the lava fields were unique and serene, the 360 degree clear view of the area enjoyable, giving us a sense of weather for each day, and making us feel like we were in our own little corner of the world. We liked its proximity to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in particular as we visited that several times. It was a pleasant drive from there on into Hilo where we visited the Hawaii Tropical Botanic Garden, a plant enthusiast must, and had a great dinner at Cafe Pesto on the bay. We were able to combine a trip to the Punalu'u Black Sand Beach with one of our visits to the Volcanoes park on one day. Another day we drove easily from the house to Pu'uhonua O Honaunau Historic Park south of Kona which was a short drive or walk from Two Step beach, a great place for beginner snorkelers. I liked that we could take a quick drive from the house to the small Ocean View market right on Highway 11 for groceries, although we found cheaper gas right around the corner at Kahuku Country Market. People were friendly and helpful at both places. The drive to drop off our trash and get drinking water took planning, but there was always something to look at along the way. Had we wanted to cook a gourmet meal the house's kitchen and all of its counter space, utensils, pans, and convenience would have made that easy. One couple enjoyed the hot tub several nights and there was room for all of us to spread out in the evenings and unload cameras or plot out the next day's adventures, with windows open and overhead fans to keep us cool. It was great not to have the humidity at the house we experienced in the Kona area. The little Gold Dust geckos that lived in the lanai area were like little colorful mascots. Mark was very helpful by phone with a couple of simple problems we had when we first got there. Mark and Jo Dean provided clear written instructions about the house and the renting process. The place was spotless, beautiful, and comfortable. All four of us enjoyed staying there and we would do so again."

  • 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!"
