"Planning a trip home to the Big Island under our circumstances was a stressful event. From the moment we contacted Pahala Town House on VRBO, a great burden was lifted. Locating Peter and Fran's Vacation Rental and communicating with them has been a blessing. The photos posted of the property on VBRO does not do justice. Seeing it in person and residing here during our stay far exceeded any of our expectations. We appreciate all of the effort and thought they have put into making this a home away from home. It is beautifully decorated, clean, efficient and practical. I wouldn't change a thing! Volpe's, thank you so much for accommodating our needs, being flexible with our schedule and most of all for your hospitable spirit. Your kind attention and expressions of sympathy during this difficult time for our family will never be forgotten. You and your home have provided much needed comfort at a time of great loss. We hope that our next visit to Pahala will be under happier circumstances and that we will be able to stay here at the Pahala Town House once more. We have stayed at many hotels throughout the years, but they all fail in comparison. Mahalo Nui Loa, Mark and Wendy Fausset of Euless, TX."

"We loved this wonderful home for our two month visit to the Big Island! What did we love about it? In a word, everything! Spacious, well equipped, very clean, wonderful king size bed (three bedrooms, but only two of us), centrally located for our needs, quietness of the area, views of the mountains, ocean, and beautiful sunrises made this the ideal home for our visit. The owners are really nice people and very accommodating. We had great communication and even additional photos before our arrival and provided a list with descriptions of exciting things to do on the island. They even provided beach chairs, snorkel gear, beach towels and anything else needed for the beach.
We were here during the winter visits of Humpback whales and blessed with many spectacular viewing opportunities. There are great beaches and hiking opportunities in the immediate area and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is just a short drive away with many sights and hikes to enjoy. We really enjoyed two local places to eat and snack, Hana Hou Restaurant with a full and the Punaluu Bakery with great sandwiches, ice cream and malasadas. The central location, which is roughly halfway between Hilo and Kona, enabled us to do several day trips to other parts of the island and we even got in an overnighter in the backcountry of the national park.
For us this home was magical and the great value allowed us to do more things than if we had stayed in a resort area. We hope to be able to return in the future."

"We stayed on our home island for our kids' Fall break. This property is as described and well stocked with most things you will need. Plenty of room for our family of 2 adults and 2 adult sized teenagers. There was a telescope available for our use, and we enjoyed viewing the moon. Our host was kind enough to call us after our stay to try and return medication we forgot. Four stars instead of five because the tennis courts were in terrible shape, with grass coming up through the cracks and the surfaces unsafe for use. My daughter and I were disappointed that we couldn't get in any practice. There was construction and yard service noise each day of our stay, which interrupted our lazy day naps. Overall, we will stay, again when we want to get away from the usual business of Hilo."
