  • Enjoyable stay

    "We enjoyed 1 week here celebrating our 10th anniversary. The condo is well laid out and has everything you need. The place in general is very comfortable especially the bed and has a wonderful view of the golf course and ocean. We found the location to be ideal for hiking in Volcano park (30 min away) and visiting Hilo (1hr away ). Kona was a bit farther (2hr with traffic). There are lots of places to explore nearby too including the Punalu'u black sands beach where you are guaranteed to see sea turtles resting on the beach! Our only complaint would be that it is not a soundproof place and of course everyone's windows are open all the time so during waking hours you hear your neighbours a lot --TV , doing dishes , chairs moving and often conversations. This is so something we are not used too but it never occurred at night so was tolerable. Overall a great place to stay to explore the Big Island."

  • Shangri-la

    "Very comfortable home in peaceful setting with great views. Plentiful fruit on the trees was a big bonus. The house was very clean and also convenient to explore the south side of the island - must visit the southernmost bakery (a real treat). The hillside setting/views can't be beat. Aaron was very helpful and courteous. The sheep/goats were an added attraction. Great value for the money and would not hesitate to stay again if planning to visit the south side. Even though it rained every evening, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    "We stayed in the unit next to this one. It was so peaceful and clean. Wish we could rent it on a monthly basis. Would recommend to our friends."

  • In a Word: Magic

    "Opened my eyes each morning to a beautiful sunrise greeting us while still lying in bed. Made great local coffee and sat in the living room to take in the spectacular view before chatting with Bill and Darlene to plan our day. However, it was always hard to leave the Hobbit House since it enveloped us in a world of fantasy: a "floating" tub overlooking the view through gorgeous stained glass windows, a large walk-in shower with floor to ceiling glass, branches strung with tiny lights hanging from the wood ceiling, beautifully handcrafted wood throughout, little hidden surprises if you take the time to look, and most importantly, Bill and Darlene! They both add so much to the experience because they took the risk to create a life truly their own and are so willing to share it with you. They are two of the most creative, passionate and interesting people you will meet. They are also very warm, welcoming hosts who will make you feel at home. Now, the ride up the hill is a bit challenging the first time, but no need for a 4x4. The property is in a secluded area and off the grid, but all this adds to a sense of adventure! It is in a great location for exploring the fantastic Volcanos Nat Park, black (head further back to see the lovely pond with water lilies) and green sand beaches, stunning Hamakua Coast, snorkeling beaches, spiritually strong City of Refuge, South Point and more. Don't forget to take advantage of the opportunity to slow down and simply chat with those in the area. If you're not looking for a typical tourist trip, you can't go wrong. It's the kind of travel experience that will stay with you in surprising ways. All our best to Darlene and Bill!"
