"My husband and I stayed at the rental for 8 nights. We really enjoyed all the adventures the island has to offer, and the rental was the perfect place to unwind after a long day of sun and fun. The roosters do provide an early morning wake up call, but we kinda liked the sounds of nature vs. alarm clock. The unit is appointed with everything for 2 people, including towels, soap, dishes, ect. Very clean and comfortable. The grill and patio was great for a dinner at "home". We would definitely stay here again. The owners make everything very easy."

"The house is in a perfect location in regards to getting away from the tourists and yet being close enough to restaurants and sites. View is stunning and the amenities are spot on with the write up. Loved having the house to come home to after exploring the island. We spent 3 nights in Volcano (Hilo Side) and 4 nights here and for us this was a perfect way to split the island up with sightseeing. Yes the roster/chickens are there (note early morning cock-a-doodle-do's can be as early as 3am) however this really didn't effect us too much. Earplugs worked fine. The grounds are beautiful and everything was very clear once we got to the house (where to park, lights, appliances, etc). The pool is wonderful and no it isn't heated and that is fine by us - very refreshing and spectacular view. Glen at the cottage was wonderful and very friendly and we did not feel at all that having the cottage that close by affected our privacy or stay at all. The only thing that was a sad ending to our stay was that the gardeners came at 8am on our last morning. Although the house is very private, with the gardeners in the garden working there really was no privacy from them- which made changing and packing up a bit of a fun challenge :-)
All in all a fabulous place and we really enjoyed our stay."

"Our stay started with detailed driving directions from the airport and it got better from there. It is impossible to describe the view as you walk down the hill to the lower unit of the building and then you realize the view is the same from the sliding doors in the bedroom and the outdoor kitchen. During the day we explored the island but choose to come back for a peaceful dinner overlooking the city rather than eating out. The unit itself is modern and well equipped. It has a large bath and bedroom as well as a comfortable living room with a wet bar. If it is important to you there is a large HD tv in the living room. My only suggestion would be to have a pair of binoculars available. This was our first visit to the island and if we come back this will be our place to stay."

"My husband and I stayed here for a few months and absolutely loved it. The view is spectacular and the surrounding property is beautiful. It is a short drive to town and to some of the best snorkeling spots.
Since we were there for a few months we were able to enjoy several types of fruit that grows on the adjoining property - rambutan, tangerines, star fruit, loquat, passion fruit, papaya and lots of oranges. Each type of fruit ripens at a different time, so what is available will depend on the time of year. Although citrus seems to be year round. The neighboring coffee farm (UCC) allows you to pick their fruit as long as you leave their coffee cherries alone.
The home comes with everything you need from the kitchen supplies to beach supplies. The hot water never ran out - which is essential for four people showering following the manta ray night dive!"
