"We loved our stay in the yurt - it's extremely comfortable, cozy and homey. The quiet is incredible - we slept amazingly well in the king-sized bed, and we spent some wonderful hours lying on the deck and looking at the crystal clear stars. Also a plus: you don't have to leave the yurt to use the washroom or to shower! We liked the location - as others have said, close to Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, South Point and Punalu'u. The view of South Point both during the day and at night is pretty awesome. A tip: everything closes by 9, so if you plan to check out the volcano at sunset and then head back to the yurt, as we did, make sure you have your dinner already procured. All in all, this is a beautiful, cozy, clean, quiet, safe, well-equipped place to stay, and a great way to experience yurt living!"

"Our perfect little getaway to Big Island! Great location for those who wants to stay away from crowds. Rocky beach is only 5 min walk form the front door. Famous black sand beach where you can see turtles - 15 min walk. A cliff diving point and Green sand beach is around 35-40 min away. To drive off road all the way down to that beach, rent a Jeep Wrangler or similar - we had so much fun! Volcano park is only 40 min drive. No shops around so I would recommend to do food shopping in Hilo or Kailua-Kona.
Condo is cozy, well-maintained and very clean; fully equipped kitchen with newer appliances, recently renovated bathroom and comfy mattress in a bedroom.
We had only two issues during our stay which was responded very quickly. We emailed the owner next day we arrived about a sofa bed (probably previous guests jumped on it and the sofa bed got bent and was unstable). There was three of us (3 adults) so we needed it. The guy came in next day and attempted to fix it. He said he probably had to replace some parts but it would take some time and he was going to do it after we leave. Also the fridge was working OK when we came (but there was a thermometer inside), then the temperature inside started to drop and reached around 70th. The guy came in again and told us that he was going to buy a new one after we leave. That was not a big deal, we just put all our food in a freezer :)
Also condo has great amenities!!! Very nice pool and hot tub (restricted hours 8:30 am - 9:00 pm) with beautiful ocean view, two gas grills (grilling must be done by 8:30 pm otherwise a resident manager will come at 8:32 pm and she will make sure you are done by 8:34 pm).
Next time we are definitely going to stay there and we will highly recommend this property to our friends.
Mahalo for the awesome 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 a great property. My wife and I stayed here 4 days with our boys 9 and 12. The house had everything we needed, was clean and in good shape. In particular, the kitchen was incredibly well stocked with every little small appliance you could want. The kids enjoyed the pool and we made use of the outdoor grill. Liz, the property manager, was nice, local and available for questions. We left an item there that she was nice enough to box up and ship back to us. The payment requirement through wire transfer was unique, but worked out without issue."
