  • 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!"

  • Great place to geet away from the noise of the city

    "Awesome location between Hilo and Kona, so you can enjoy the whole island. Only an 1.5 hours to Hilo instead of 3hrs from Kona. 1 hour from the volcano park. very clean and a large space to live in, large patio windows, full kitchen was great to use. Communication with owner was professional and prompt, answered all questions. It was like a home away from home really. Everything we needed was available. the local area is an old lava flow so If you like hiking and bizarre rock formations, you can wet your appetite right from the back yard. We loved it. there is a grocery store, gas station, pizza shops, bbq food, breakfast place all nearby just off the main highway (about 4 miles away). if you like Hiking I highly recommend volcano national park to start. there is a ton of other places to hike. also Snorkeling is good at black sand beach, scuba dive in Kona (Big island divers is the best- DO THE MANTA DIVE) as Hilo is not as good (visibility)."

  • 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."

Ocean View Travel Tips

Relaxing Beach Stays in Ocean View Vacation Homes

Ocean View vacation homes are unlike any other Big Island vacation rentals. They can be found in quiet neighborhoods surrounded by gorgeous natural landscapes. While staying in Ocean View lodging, you can enjoy the nearby organic gardens or take a hike through the desert. Ocean View lodging includes amenities such as full gourmet kitchens, lanais, large beds and ocean views.

When the stress of the workday gets to be too much, a vacation can be just the remedy you need. Hawaii in particular is a destination that can rejuvenate even the most stressed-out individuals. Hawaii offers many relaxing locales; Kau, for instance, is a vast and remote region in the Big Island of Hawaii. Located in the southernmost portion of Hawaii, Kau boasts everything from active volcanoes to macadamia nut orchards and coffee farms. Furthermore, instead of crowded hotels, Kau offers luxurious vacation homes, such as Ocean View vacation homes, which will help you to feel at home while you're away.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

Kau is home to a large portion of the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The park spans 330,000 acres, which includes two active volcanoes: Kilauea, which has been erupting since 1983, and Maunaloa, which last erupted in 1984. There's also 150 miles of hiking trails through deserts, rainforests, a walk-in lava tube and volcano craters. The park was named an UNESCO World Heritage site in 1987.

Other Sightseeing Opportunities in Kau

Along with Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Kau has a bevy of sightseeing opportunities. For instance, while visiting Ka Lae, tourists can stand at the southernmost point in the United States and view an endless Pacific Ocean. Kau is also home to Punaluu Black Sand Beach, one of Hawaii's most famous black sand beaches.
