Beautiful house and convenient location
"The house is beautiful, spacious, and has everything you need; the large garden is a wonder for kids to explore. We were only 6, but 10 people can be very comfortable here. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a blender for making tasty smoothies. We benefited from the snorkel gear, towels, boogie board, coolers, and even clothed for cooler weather (which you'll need if you go to Mauna Kea). We stayed 7 days and were sad to leave. Marci and Chuck were very helpful to us when we needed them, plus they had fruit and coffee for us on arrival.
I liked the closeness to Honaunau for picnic and sunset and 2 step for snorkeling. The house is very close to a wonderful fruit stand (at mile 103-104 on hwy 11), and if you want to explore Kohala and the south part of the island, all from one location, this will be a great place to stay."

"We just returned from a vacation at the Blue Roof house and had a wonderful time. The location is remote and private, the home is beautifully appointed, and the view can't be beat. We enjoyed cooking in the large well appointed kitchen and dining with our friends in the spacious dining room. We especially enjoyed having coffee each morning overlooking the ocean and cocktails each evening while enjoying stunning sunsets. It was a great place to enjoy with our friends as each room is equipped with a queen or king sized bed so no couple had to "slum it" in twin beds. We'd definitely recommend it!"

"Clean, comfortable studio apartment in more rural setting, away from the big resorts. Enjoyed watching all of the birds and beautiful sunsets over the ocean from the lanai. Appreciated all of the reference/travel books and pamphlets on the bookshelf."

"Here's why I will remember our stay at Nikki's house with such fondness.
-big, spacious comfortable rooms. 4 adults could work in the kitchen together. We all could do floor exercises in the livingroom together. The bedrooms were large enough to retreat to for quiet time and the beds were great.
-the wonderful deck, with it's view over papaya, avocado, hibiscus, macadamia, etc. and a big BBQ to grill our dinners.
-the veggie garden and chickens
-the friendly cats who greeted us each day but respectfully declined indoor visits.
-the outdoor shower*******
-in the background, Nikki's cheerful, unassuming, helpful and friendly presence
This is not a 4 star hotel. It's a clean, funky, well-used and loved home with a great vibe. It is not convenient to malls, restaurants, resorts(those are an hour away). There are noisy frogs croaking all night long. But those are everywhere.
The location gives easy access to south Kona and south island points of interest, but with it's easy to go up the Kona coast and do a Costco run too.
Would I go back? In a heartbeat!!!!!!!!"
