  • Fantastic, serene, beautiful getaway!

    "My fiancé and I and another couple stayed here for 4 nights and it is absolutely fantastic! It is in an amazing location that is unlike anywhere else in the world. You are surrounded by volcanic rock all the way to the beach. The location is quiet, dark, and the milky way was visible every night from the hot tub. The house is spacious, modern, and everything we could have needed was there. We enjoyed cooking fresh seafood on the grill and shopped at the local grocery store just a 5 minute drive from the house. I can't recommend this place enough!!! It was truly magnificent and very affordable."

  • 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)."

  • 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."

  • 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!"

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.
