Loved our vacation in the Blue Roof house
"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!"

"Banana Bungalow provided just the secluded escape we were looking for, away from the bustle of the city but close enough to everything we wanted to experience - ten minutes from Pu'uhonua o Honaunau (the most extensive historical site), ten minutes from beautiful beaches for fantastic snorkeling, two hours from Volcano National Park, and twenty minutes from good dining. The ocean south of Kona is less turbulent than in the north, where winds whip up the waters, important for less experienced snorkelers. And the bungalow was delightful, offering all of the creature comforts in a lush, jungly setting. There is no need to rent beach gear, as masks, fins, boogie boards, and beach umbrellas are provided. And not to be missed - Bwana Bob's very funky coffee roasting workshop!
Thanks, Susan and Steve, for welcoming us so warmly!"

Twist my arm... I want to keep this hide-away for myself!
"We would like to express our gratitude for the opportunity to have spent a week at Maka Nui, an absolutely beautiful, private haven in paradise. The photos and description of said property, found on the VRBO website, were spot-on, but, this impressively decorated, comfortable home, offered so much more in person and we felt beyond "spoiled" (a word said often when speaking of this property) by all the amenities - both inside and outside, it provided.
The estate and surrounding property is very well-managed and maintained by Candi and her staff. We found her to be genuinely welcoming, never intrusive and always supportive to our needs. We will wholeheartedly recommend this lovely home to our family, to friends, and to whomever will listen!
Although our vacation has ended, we are already longing to return to the serene foothills of Mauna Loa and the vacation home that is Maka Nui.

"My husband and I can't say enough good things about our stay at Pau Hana! Gorgeous, secluded, beautiful, every amenity thoughtfully provided and a very helpful and attentive owner--how's that for starters? Whenever we come back to Big Island, Pau Hana will be part of our itinerary, that's how wonderful it was. Mahalo!"
