  • Staying at the Tree House

    "We had a wonderful time during our week at the Tree House. Its perfectly sized for two people and one live-in gecko. I love the area and its so close to several beautiful beaches and it's a quite laid back neighborhood. Even though this was not the main house on the property we still had a view of the ocean and a big shady banyon tree and lovely breezes through the house. There was a couple renting the big house so we were not able to use the big yard, but the path to the beach was so close. We looked around the island for turtles but found the most encounters right on the beach outside our tree house. Amazing! We evens saw whales breaching from our beach, they were out a ways but still spectacular! I would highly recommend this to other renters. The birds sing early in the morning, so if you are not early risers suggest ear plugs unless you want to be up that early. Wish there was a little bit of the main yard allocated to the tree house, its the one thing that would have made this even more perfect! If we ever visit this island again, we will try to stay in the same place!! The folks handling the rental were excellent to work with too which made it smooth and easy. Highly recommend!"

  • Wonderful Property - Great Location

    "Our family spent Easter weekend here, and it was perfect! The home is oceanfront, but offers privacy from beach-goers at Beach 69. A short path from the home leads you into the shallow ocean with a white sandy bottom. We brought our kayak, and were able to get it in and out of the water with ease. Our family also snorkeled and fished - all right in front of the home. We swam with dolphins, manta rays and turtles. And all without worrying about stepping on rocks and wana. It was amazing! The layout of the home also offered privacy from other guests. The main part of the home includes the master bedroom, but the other three guestrooms all have their own exterior entrances. This was great, as we were traveling with other adult couples. The dining tables outside were great for our morning coffee and evening BBQ's. The grounds of the home are so relaxing - with green lawns and coconut trees. The hammocks were comfortable and we all took turns taking naps in them. Another one of my favorite things was that every cabinet and drawer were labeled. This saved me from searching through the kitchen and bathroom trying to find things. I wish every property manager did this - it was much appreciated! Also, the fridge and spice cabinet were stocked with condiments and spices. This was a blessing, because it's hard to remember every little thing. This home was great for our family, and I can't wait to go back. I only hope I get to stay longer next time!"

  • My Favorite Place in the World.....

    "Full Disclosure..........I've known the owners almost all my life and have stayed at 82 many times. So, can I give a fair review? I think so. If I had one more trip in me before getting too old to travel it would be here. Why? A lot of reasons, but basically, location, location, location. The other reviews are all 5 stars and give many of the reasons why, all of which I agree with. It is always a joy to walk over the bridge across the pond behind the house and see one of the most majestic views you can imagine. You are literally one step away from what is essentially a private sandy beach. It's not private of course but, it is far away from the public beaches so there are no crowds of tourists. The only people you generally see are a few of the people staying in nearby homes and they are just walking by and not sitting down on your beach. From the big deck you step onto the beach where there are several coconut trees to provide shade, Adirondack chairs where you spend a lot of time enjoying the gorgeous weather, the awesome scenery and beautiful sunsets. Then there are the Green Turtles, lots of them laying around in the shallows feeding or sleeping. They have pretty much lost their fear of humans so you can get quite close to take great pictures. If you are lucky you can find yourself swimming along with them in the deeper water. It's awesome. Oh, then there are the Whales. Literally every day during the winter months the Whales can be seen swimming back and forth not far offshore. They often breach and trust me, that is spectacular and I have the pictures to prove it. There have been nights when it is quiet and the wind is not blowing and you can hear the Whales as they come out of the water and splash back down. Amazing to listen to. At night as you are lying in bed drifting off to sleep the sound of the waves gently rolling across the reef is something you won't find in many places because you are so close to the beach. So, all that being said, 82 is not for everyone. It is a small, old and rustic essentially one room house. There is a kitchen/living room, one full bath, one half bath and two bedrooms separated by the large bathroom, which are more alcoves than separate rooms so privacy is limited. Then there is a large covered deck and one step to the beach. Kitchen facilities are adequate. It works great for a family or two couples (especially if you are really good friends)."

  • Pefrect location, awesome folks, incrdible relaxing vacation

    "We booked this on a recommendation and it was perfect. The living space of the house is spacious and comfortable. Lots of light and windows and easy access to outside. Outside there are 2 hammocks, lounge chairs, regular chairs, a table. There is a nice lawn area that attracts a ton of birds and then the beach. It is nicer than the pics show. At high tide the snorkeling is incredible and at low tide the tide pools are great. Close to beach 69. Charcoal BBQ, and coin laundry for convenience. Mary was great at taking our calls when we had questions and resolving issues. The office is right down the street next to the general store. Easy access to many of the resorts as well as short drive to Hawi and Wiamea as well as Kona. Perfect location. But best of all, the sea turtles. We had them visit everyday. So if you want to relax, enjoy the surf, see turtles, fish and lots of birds, this is the spot for you."
