  • Spacious house in a quiet area

    "This house is in a little neighborhood about 40 minutes from the National Park. There is so much room that, while we had 3, we were thinking we could have added another family and been comfortable. There are a number of activities within minutes (South Point, coffee mill, lava tube, etc.) If you are looking for a quiet place to stay, this is it."

  • Great place to geet away from the noise of the city

    "Awesome location between Hilo and Kona, so you can enjoy the whole island. Only an 1.5 hours to Hilo instead of 3hrs from Kona. 1 hour from the volcano park. very clean and a large space to live in, large patio windows, full kitchen was great to use. Communication with owner was professional and prompt, answered all questions. It was like a home away from home really. Everything we needed was available. the local area is an old lava flow so If you like hiking and bizarre rock formations, you can wet your appetite right from the back yard. We loved it. there is a grocery store, gas station, pizza shops, bbq food, breakfast place all nearby just off the main highway (about 4 miles away). if you like Hiking I highly recommend volcano national park to start. there is a ton of other places to hike. also Snorkeling is good at black sand beach, scuba dive in Kona (Big island divers is the best- DO THE MANTA DIVE) as Hilo is not as good (visibility)."

  • What a great place!!!!

    "Having never rented a house on vacation before, we didn't know what to expect. We were extremely glad we decided to give it a try. The rental process was straight forward. Lizzy, the property manager was great and provided us with tips and info and was always available. The house has everything you could want and more. Our parents were travelling with us. They are both in their 80's and physically challenged, so finding a place that was easily accessible for them was not easy. We are happy to say that the house was perfect for them, too. Don't hesitate to rent this if you are looking for a great place to spend time on the big island."

  • A thoroughly enjoyable rental experience

    "We (two couples) stayed at this rental home for one full week and found it a great retreat from the hustle and bustle of towns we could have chosen. Its location close to the southern tip gave us easy access to either side of the Big Island and we could plan accordingly, not having to retrace driving miles, making this a time saver for us. The quiet and solitude of the lava fields were unique and serene, the 360 degree clear view of the area enjoyable, giving us a sense of weather for each day, and making us feel like we were in our own little corner of the world. We liked its proximity to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in particular as we visited that several times. It was a pleasant drive from there on into Hilo where we visited the Hawaii Tropical Botanic Garden, a plant enthusiast must, and had a great dinner at Cafe Pesto on the bay. We were able to combine a trip to the Punalu'u Black Sand Beach with one of our visits to the Volcanoes park on one day. Another day we drove easily from the house to Pu'uhonua O Honaunau Historic Park south of Kona which was a short drive or walk from Two Step beach, a great place for beginner snorkelers. I liked that we could take a quick drive from the house to the small Ocean View market right on Highway 11 for groceries, although we found cheaper gas right around the corner at Kahuku Country Market. People were friendly and helpful at both places. The drive to drop off our trash and get drinking water took planning, but there was always something to look at along the way. Had we wanted to cook a gourmet meal the house's kitchen and all of its counter space, utensils, pans, and convenience would have made that easy. One couple enjoyed the hot tub several nights and there was room for all of us to spread out in the evenings and unload cameras or plot out the next day's adventures, with windows open and overhead fans to keep us cool. It was great not to have the humidity at the house we experienced in the Kona area. The little Gold Dust geckos that lived in the lanai area were like little colorful mascots. Mark was very helpful by phone with a couple of simple problems we had when we first got there. Mark and Jo Dean provided clear written instructions about the house and the renting process. The place was spotless, beautiful, and comfortable. All four of us enjoyed staying there and we would do so again."
