"This is a beautiful home that is well maintained with 3 nice size bedrooms, large showers, and big porch. It was great for our large family of 7. Owner was very easy to work with and got in touch with us quickly. Nice quiet setting between Kona and Hilo. Close to green sand beach and not too far from Hawaii Volcano National Park. We had a great vacation."

"Reading the reviews of Aina Lani before we left on our trip, my partner and I wondered, “Could this cottage really be as outstanding as all of the reviews say?” Within minutes of our arrival, we knew even the most outstanding reviews could not capture the beauty of this island paradise.
Nestled in to the gorgeous Wood Valley, this secluded cabin has everything we were looking for during our stay on the Big Island: a tranquil setting, a well-stocked kitchen, and easy access to Volcanoes National Park as well as many outstanding day trips (including Green Sand Beach, secluded black sand beaches, and unique snorkeling spots). This beautifully constructed and furnished cottage (combined with the most comfortable bed I’ve ever had the pleasure of sleeping on) provided the perfect home base for our vacation.
But perhaps the most memorable aspect of our stay was our lovely hosts. Anne and David clearly take pride in this cottage. As many reviewers have already commented, Anne and David were always available to answer questions (both before and during our stay), but they also gave us plenty of privacy. Their passion for the Big Island is infectious.
Every evening we looked forward to returning to Aina Lani to relax at the end of our days of Big Island adventures."

"This was our fourth stay at Sea Mountain Colony One; different unit each time. This unit was by far the nicest. It is well supplied with everything one might need (except mustard, but thatʻs another story}. Everything inside is tasteful and good quality. It has its own wifi, which is miles better than the general Colony One wifi. The owner is pleasant and accommodating. In the information binder, we even found song sheets for Hawaiian music by a legendary Hawaiian musician, Bill Tapia. We knew Bill late in his 103-year life. A large watercolor in the living room reminded me a lot of ones my father painted. It felt like home.
Note on Colony One: Of the lodgings available in Ka`u, this is the best value. Come here if you are interested in Hawaiian history, culture, lifestyle -- not if you are looking for luxury. And of course, the Punalu`u black sand beach and Volcano National Park are attractions. Each unit in Colony One is privately owned, so they are inconsistent. Also, the resident manager is no help. If something in the unit needs attention, the resident manager will tell you to call somebody else, but cannot give you a name or number. If somehow you should lock yourself out, the resident manager will charge $100 to let you back in. So do not expect service of any kind."
