"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!"

What can I say? Barny and Elizabeth were great hosts! The house is awesome and so relaxing. We stayed for 4 nights and they were very accommodating to our late arrival and early leave time. The location is so quiet and peaceful, much needed after the hustle and bustle of Oahu. Staying here actually felt like being on vacation, yet the major attractions like the green sand beach, black sand beach and volcanoes are all within easy driving distance! If we get the opportunity to go back to the Big Island, we would definitely stay here again!"

"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 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!"
