  • Excellent Value!

    "This place was better then we expected. The most stunning view, and the space both inside the home and out is exceptional.The pictures hardly do this place justice. We had 10 people staying at the property and we never once felt cramped or inconvenienced. Each bedroom has its own full bath and there is a plethora of outside tables to enjoy your morning coffee or dinner. Candi is both helpful and informational, and she is doing a fine job of keeping the property running smoothly. The only complaint we had is at the end of trip we were discounted $65 from our damage deposit for "excessive" electric. We understand that electric costs are very high in Hawaii, but this additional cost was NOT discussed with us at any point. Although she did mention at the beginning of our trip to turn off lights, fans and keep the refrigerator closed Candi did not explain there would be a fee associated with electricity use if she deemed it excessive. I believe transparency at the beginning would be appropriate, or increase the rental fee so guests do not have to feel guilty about how they live while at the property. This property is very fairly priced, beautiful and well equipped. Over all an excellent experience and have already recommended this place to friends."

  • Best stay on the Big Island ever!

    "Candi did an awesome job as hostess and had some great ideas of places to eat and things to see. The cottage was the perfect size and had a great view of the ocean. Great place away from the crowds. We will be back next year!"

  • If we could, would rent again this beautiful house

    "Rented this home for a family reunion vacation that included 12 family members plus a 3 month old. The layout was perfect giving the parents & baby a master bedroom on one side of the house while the other members used the guest house bedroom, the other master bedroom & another bedroom which slept 4. Because of the layout, the baby only woke the parents during the night. We could have added at least 2 more guests before someone would have had to sleep on air mattresses which the owner would/could provide. We had plenty of space to move around the common areas (kitchen/livingroom/entertainment area/lanai) which was our main reason for renting this house. Heard no complaints from anyone regarding the availability of hot water for showers with this big group. Loved the scenic views from the lanai at dinner time and also in the morning. Loved the breeze that came through the doors leading out to the Lanai. Plenty of bath towels and etc, & plenty of beach towels for everyone to use during our stay. The high quality kitchen supplies (smaller appliances/plates/dishes/silverware and etc) were plentiful so that we would have only had to run the dishwasher twice a day but the dishwasher had to be used in shifts to handled the amount of dishes used by the group. We had a little issue with the food disposal (our fault) & the safe (not our fault). Both times the property manager responded quickly & fixed the issue. He was very cordial & helpful giving tips of good places to eat, little known scenic by-passes & excursions. The helpful "tip packet" given by the home owner was also very valuable. Homeowner was prompt & easy to deal with. Location was excellent. We felt the location was great for getting to all the areas on the Kona side of the island and it also allowed us to drive a doable 1 1/2 hours to the Volcano National Park on the Hilo side. The parking area by the garages was roomy enough to hold 3 rental vehicles (2 midsize and an extended van) plus a motorcycle. I most warn people, the first time going up and down the driveway was a little scary. It's a great place for walking for exercise!! If I have to say something negative - the dogs next door barked a little - never during the night & never for extended periods of time. Just interrupted the peace & quiet now & then. We learned after the 2nd occurrence that after showing in the guest house, make sure to keep the bathroom door closed or the steam will set of the smoke detector."
