"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."

"Very peaceful spot and so relaxing, both the house and the gardens, the minute we walked in the door. We also didn't come close to turning on the TV and being a group of adults found the house to be plenty spacious for us all - no tripping over each other and lots of wonderful laughs. So neat to be able to all sit for dinner around the spacious table. Sandra is just lovely, made us feel really welcome and we enjoyed a fire pit night - sharing stories under the stars. Mahalo Sandra!"

"We were looking for a home away from home and we found it on this 7 acres! Its not all fancy like a resort, but very homey. We enjoyed the grounds a lot! As a family used to country living, this was the perfect place for us! Every convenience was provided in the home. As long as you don't mind driving a bit, this place is literally middle distance from the two sides of the island. Tropical Hilo or Sunny Kona! I love this area of the Big Island the most because it is so green and remote!"

"Having never visited the island before, the location was intimidating but easy to find with the maps app on my phone. That same remote location makes this house perfect for a relaxed getaway on the Big Island. The house is 3000 feet up Mauna Loa, so the days are warm'ish and nights are perfectly cool, no a/c needed here! Coming from a metropolitan area, the quietness, tranquility, and incredibly dark skies were the best features of this house. Located roughly half way between Kona and Volcanoes National Park, it's the perfect base camp for exciting day trips. Remember, the Big Island is big so you will still drive a good distance to any attractions. The generously stocked kitchen, guide books, and outdoor grill were very nice surprises. The house was spotless, and very well supplied, the owner obviously takes a lot of pride in this property.
Advice for potential renters: don't be afraid of the location, it's completely worth the effort to get here; stock up on food in Kona or Hilo, there is supermarket in Ocean View, but the prices are very high; take time to go for a walk in the neighborhood and enjoy the exotic plant life, lava field, and the peace and quiet."
