  • Epitome of cozy - perfect!

    "My family and I stayed at the Yurt in the Sky one night of our week on the Big Island and wished we could have moved it around with us - it was perfectly cozy. Despite the cool evening temps up in the lava flow slopes of Ocean View (it's out there!), the yurt was comfortable once we got the propane fireplace lit. Plugged in our laptop and used the wireless to play some Jazz and watch a comedy by the flickering fire. The loft was perfect for the kids, the bedroom was great for us - comfortable. Could see the stars through the yurt's center skylight and from out on the deck, the night looked like diamonds with so little ambient light around us. The morning sun awoke us given the yurt's walls are translucent (but not see through). Breakfast on the propane grill of pancakes and bacon. Fridge was large enough for us to put our whole cooler in it for the evening (we stocked up in Hilo with groceries, ice and a styro cooler to keep costs down). Simply loved the Yurt and Marilyn's instructions were spot on about lighting the fireplace, accessing the unit, changing the propane tank (came in handy!), etc. Would definitely recommend staying here if you have a chance. On par with hotel prices in the area, but the experience is far more memorable. If you stay multiple days, it'll be cheaper than most hotels since there's only one cleaning fee per stay."

  • Great location and house

    "This house was large, clean and fully equipped to handle all 6 of us. We had boogie boards, beach chairs, sand mats, a new bbq grill and lots of shampoos, soaps and linens. Great central location for accessing both sides of the island. The lanai was awesome to sit, eat and watch the sunrise and sunsets. The nights were cool, making it great for sleeping and the days were comfortable, not too hot. It was easy to find and there was a grocery store down the hill and a couple restraunts. Would definitely stay here again and recommend to anyone who wants a central location and quiet."

  • Aaaahhh...Tranquility Actualized

    "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."
