Slice of paradise!
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The estate was very quiet and so relaxing. We spent a lot of time in our room decompressing from all of our sightseeing. The lanai was serene and the view was incredibly scenic.
Carol, our host, was very friendly and accommodating. She took us on a tour of the property and shared so much information with us about the estate and the coffee growing/making process.
During our stay we enjoyed refreshed towels (beach and fluffy shower towels), household items (dishes, coffee maker, refrigerator, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, and lotion), and fun activity items (snorkeling gear and beach chairs).
The room itself was fantastic! Very clean and comfortable. We slept very well at the estate. The sunset from the comfort of the room and lanai was superb. We also enjoyed the shower. It was a walk in with rock floor tile and decorative art tiles.
Carol's coffee is FANTASTIC and she provided us with a complimentary bag. She had plenty of fresh fruit trees available for picking.
The estate is close to a grocery store, several yummy eateries, and the clearest snorkeling we've every experienced!
We cannot wait to book our return trip!!"

"Just returned from a month-long vacation in this beautiful location. Large comfy beds, spacious & well-stocked kitchen, large lanai. Most days the cove was calm enough for swimming & snorkeling. We even did night snorkels. Some of the best Kona snorkeling is nearby at Honomolino, Hookena and 2-step. Mikie was prompt in responding to our inquiries & requests. BBQ needed parts and was repaired within a couple of days. We cooked nearly all our own meals with fresh island meats, fish & produce. Cell phone service was weak (adequate in one corner of the lanai), so having the house phone available for calls to the mainland was useful. Wifi/internet access was good. Lovely neighborhood. I hope to return!"

"We were headed to the Big Island for a conference at Waikoloa Village, but we wanted a few days away from it all. Mike and Vika's place was the perfect ticket. It was an easy drive down into the woods and close enough to the grocery store and restaurants so we didn't feel too isolated. Sitting in the outside kitchen lanai in the mornings drinking chai tea was just what I needed to start the summer! The views are amazing and you truly feel alone out there on the side of a mountain, even though you are only 10 minutes drive from Captain Cook town. There was a beautiful wild turkey, I named him "Tom", who greeted us when we arrived and came by on the last day to say goodbye. The amenities covered all our needs. The only downside was that the cell access is very limited on the property and wi-fi only at the main house, this bothered my teenage daughters, but it didn't really bother me as I wanted to get away from it all while still having the ability to use electricity and have running water. You can always go up to the town to get access when you need it. You will see some bugs and lots of beautiful green geekos, but since I live on Oahu, they didn't really bother me. It was fun to just sit in the rocking chair and watch the geekos scurry back and forth along the roof. It rained a lot when we were there, but it didn't bother us much because the property has nice tin roofs that keep you dry. It was a lovely visit."
