"This property was exceptional and suited all the needs of my family ranging in age 80 down to 18 months old. The view was stunning and the Kohala mountain breezes and nightly rain showers a nice respite from the unusual heat in Kona and Hawi. The house was outfit with everything we possibly needed, and those items we didn't think we needed but were certainly glad to have. The spirit of Aloha certainly resides here and with the wonderful host Jileen who filled the home with fresh fruit, flowers, and little touches like lotion and soaps. The star gazing from the large patio is the best I've experienced, including from middle America farm country! We loved the separate living spaces (great for afternoon naps for young and old) and enjoyed cooking breakfast or dinners in the well stocked kitchen before or after we headed out to explore for the day. Although the home is further away from the Volcano and Kona than some places, it was near to all the lesser known gems we cared to visit while on the Big Island and set alongside one of the most scenic drives in the Islands. We couldn't wait to come home each day. The friendly insects and animals only added to the charm--we've fondly nicknamed the bull "Ferdinand." The house is well designed and seemed larger than it actually is-- gazing at the view of Maui's Haleakala out the bathroom sink window as you get ready for the day was a treat. The only negative was poor cell phone reception from our carriers, but the WIFI worked great. Thank you for the wonderful home and your hospitality. We can't wait to return to this little slice of Big Island heaven!"

"A wonderful place to stay in if you are seeking a peaceful setting which is clean and well appointed. Great hospitality from our hosts. The north end of the island offers a new perspective on the Big Island and is well worth exploring! Thank you Carol, Chris and Justin!"

"We loved staying in The Bamboo Cottage! It was perfectly set up with everything we could possibly need for our 5 day stay. The bowl of fruit, fresh coffee and oatmeal were perfect for our breakfast. The gardens surrounding the cottage were beautiful! The cottage was ideally located for us to visit family and enjoy the charm of Hawi. We will definitely come back!"

"All the glowing comments below are correct. The house was lovely, very clean, spacious and so graciously set up. I didn't realized how important it was to have everything for beach and Hawaii fun right on hand. Greatly added to relaxing and vacation ease. Hawi was magical- only mistake we made was to only stay one week. We will be back!"
