  • Ah, wilderness

    "An immaculate and comprehensively equipped small house that sleeps three in cool privacy. Amazing views, Dolphins swimming by and a lovely sound from the breaking waves on the pebble beach. Very private and quiet, as we hoped it would be. Yes, there are ants and mosquitoes. Not many of either, and simple to bar from the house. As we are from eastern Ontario, we wondered why anyone would find them intolerable. This house is in the real world, not a sterile resort environment, and offers birds, butterflies, adorable little geckos and lovely restful times. Since it is January, there are rollers coming onto the beach. Competent swimmers go past them; unfit old ladies such as I find them a challenge. But there are plenty of quiet beaches within reach and this one is private and outstandingly beautiful. I am enjoying the Dolphins swimming by. The road down is also a challenge, very steep. You need one confident driver. The location lends itself to expeditions to the famous sites. The Volcano park is fairly close on a good road with lovely scenery and a great bakery on the way. Some of the historic sites are even closer, with a great coffee house (with bakery) en route. Air temperature is perfect, there are lovely breezes and I would recommend this place to anyone (noting the caveats mentioned above)."

  • The perfect place to stay on the Big Island!

    "We had an absolutely fabulous time in this home. The open floor plan was great for all of us and we also had the downstairs studio. The driveway is as described but after the first trip up it was fine, parking was good and there was a cooler and other beach items for our use. It is very quiet and peaceful and the decor is just as you would imagine in Hawaii. Everything worked, plenty of space for everyone and the views truely were awe inspiring. It is a great location to explore the Island and altho 20 miles from Kona it can take about 40 minutes due to the 2 lane road. We all agreed we would stay here again! There is allot of Aloha in this home. Peaceful day..."

  • Great stay

    "My wife and I stayed with Carol for 2 nights and we really enjoyed the property. She is a very welcoming, unobtrusive host. The property was clean and well-maintained, offering all of the small things we may need within the unit such as guide books, sunscreen, scuba gear, towels, etc. as well as one of the real bonuses, which was fresh coffee from the property and it was very good. The view is beautiful and the property ripe with fruit, flowers and coffee. Will definitely visit again if we find ourselves on the Big Island."
