  • Paradise farm

    "We spent 12 days in this wonderful place. The house is perfect and equipped as expected. The garden is incredible, papaya, avocado, banana and lime trees along with the rooster and chicken made me feel like I was in a dream. This island is full of activities, everything from the dessert, volcanic trails, rainforest, waterfalls, forests and beaches. It was a wonderful active vacay. We didn't turn the tv on once.... Beth, you will be seeing us again and we will be sending all our loved ones there. We loved it and left with the Aloha spirit!"

  • Awesome Location and House

    "There are not enough good things we can say about this house. My wife and I stayed here while in Kona to watch a great friend participate in the Ironman. Another couple was supposed to travel with us but were unable due to a family matter. This house is amazing. Everything you need is there. The view is incredible. The house is perfect for one or two couples. It is close enough to Kona and restaurants but also far enough away to be relaxing and quiet. The house is even better than the pictures. The patio is perfect for relaxing and watching the sun set or reading a book in the morning with a cup of coffee. The pool is very nice and refreshing. Everything is perfect. We hope to be back one day. The ocean is a short drive away. The owner was great to work with and very friendly. This place is like being at home (but in Hawaii)."

  • Magical stay

    "Our 5-day stay at Mapuana were the most magical, pleasant, and memorable of our 12 day trip to the Big Island. We found ourselves wishing we'd stayed there the whole time. The owner, an artist and writer, has created a tropical paradise in the wonderful Captain Cook area that has the essential conveniences of the modern world, but retains the best and most sustainable aspects of traditional Hawaiian life. The interior is indeed magical, appointed with original art in a tropical and spiritual style. No noisy air conditioners here, no lights from vehicles, no noises or voices of other tourists. Wi-Fi is excellent. The rental is the top floor of a home perched at treetop level for unlimited ocean views, surrounded by tropical flowers, fruits, and scents. Birds sing day and night, geckos appear when you least expect them. The deck has over a 210 degree view of the flanks of the volcano and the ocean. Sunsets are beautiful from here, and in the dawn the sun comes down the slopes of the volcano. The deck is so comfortable that it's hard to leave. The interior is not only artfully decorated, but has many comfortable places to curl up with a book or meditate. The rental is in close proximity to the small and delightful community of Captain Cook and the beautiful Kealakekua Bay. Kona is just a short distance to the North. We'll be going back to Magical Mapuana our next stay."

  • Exellent if no stairs inside the house

    "We have a 8 months old baby, so it's a little bit safe issue with the stairs inside the house. Other than that it was awesome. The functional kitchen, the nice hot tub backyard, nice juggle noise at night(I love it, but my husband thinks it's loud when sleeping closed to the window daybed)... It comfortable and relaxing."
