"We are shortly returned from our stay in this lovely condo - what a perfect spot! I have been coming to Hawaii - and Colony One, where this condo is located - for years. So far, this unit is my favorite condo there. Renting a condo is always a gamble - you never know what you're going to get - but this place was clean, roomy, and charming, with lots of local island touches. We cooked most of our own meals during our stay, so we appreciated the fully-stocked kitchen and the barbecue area by the pool, where we spent several hours grilling and making friends with other visitors.
The location can't be beat - nearby beaches and Volcano National Park are both an easy drive away, and must-sees like Pt of Refuge, Hilo, and the Kona waterfront all make great day trips. If you want to stay close to home, you can visit the gorgeous black sand beach, swim in the pool (and hot tub set in volcanic rock), golf, or take one of the many nearby hikes and beaches. This is also an amazing spot for sea turtles - we saw nine during 30-40 minutes snorkeling in the water right off the black sand beach! I highly recommend this place for a quiet getaway or any adventurous souls looking to explore the Big Island!"

"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!"

"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."
