  • 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)."

  • Beautiful Place To Stay

    "A beautiful home on a beautiful piece of property. We stayed in the Ohana guest house and it exceeded our expectations in most areas. It is very clean, private and quiet. The views from the Lanai are phenomenal. Nice hardwood floors so be sure to take your shoes off before entering,,, as the fun note on the side says. This is pretty common these days and not at all unreasonable. The market isn't real close by so be sure to plan a trip to the store. We stopped prior to arriving at the house on our fist day. We also made a Costco run the next day to stock up for the week. The house is not in the main tourist area which is why we booked it, we didn't want the noise & congestion of that part of the Island. Perfect, no but I'd go back in a minute. Beautiful home, I'd recommend it to anyone going to the Big Island. I do have to comment on a review someone else did complaining about the pool not being heated. Geeze, it's Hawaii and " nobody " heats their pools. After all it's a swimming pool not a Sauna. The " house information book " makes it clear that there is a charge for turning the hot tub on which to me is odd...but that's okay we probably wouldn't have used it anyway. There's also a charge if you want the air conditioning on. but by opening the windows ( they are screened ) and having the fans on it was never warm or uncomfortable. It was perfect. As stated they supply very nice towels and there is a washer & dryer so you need to do your own laundry, after all it's a house, not a hotel. I did find it all that we were only given one roll of paper towels and two extra rolls of toilet paper. Odd yes but not unreasonable I suppose, there's a WalMart & Target down the road. Another review or two mention that Dan wasn't necessarily the most polite person. So what if his interpersonal skills are less than you'd get at Macy's. After all it is his house and his business. He even apologized for his being curt during an email we got. He was off island during our stay so we dealt with the property manager Tammy who was very nice and professional. A good source for local information too."

  • Clean & comfortable

    "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."
