"We stayed here for four days during a trip to the big island and would come back any time we return. The cottage is well appointed, comfortable, and spacious. The property is large enough to give you the experience of seclusion and privacy while enjoying paradise and yet is just a quick drive away from restaurants and site seeing activities. The views are stunning, the birds and wildlife were just great. I did not think I would like the outdoor shower, but once i tried it, I found it to be really relaxing, comfortable and private. And, just as important as the great facilities was the warm and embracing welcome we received. From the fresh coffee that was grown on the site, to the fruit, to the banana bread, we had all that we could want to make the experience special. Michael was a greatest of hosts, ensuring we had all our needs met; Chuck, the property caretaker, was lovely, warm and welcoming, and also making sure we had all that we needed without being intrusive...a great balance of welcome and respect for our privacy. Chuck made great recommendations, provided us with contact info, and made sure we knew about special happening while we were there. We will return, and I have already recommended the location to my friends planning a trip later this year."

"My husband and I stayed 3 days to celebrate our anniversary.
We live on the other side of the Big Island so it was an easy trip.
The fruit was amazing. The biggest mango I have ever seen.
Very, very clean place. Everything was there to meet our needs.
Tony was a generous and kind host.
Thanks so much with providing us a beautiful home away from home."

"This was the perfect place for us! We started our two week vacation here to celebrate our 30th anniversary, stayed 4 nights then moved on to the Kohala Coast at the resorts, which is what we have been used to... love it of course, especially the Mauna Kea where we started together and are currently closing this adventure. We are so thankful that we decided to do something a little different, and we loved our choice and hope to come back soon!
We are also vacation rental owners so we appreciate all the attention to detail and professionalism from Dennis. The decor is so tasteful and modern, yet cozy and comfortable! Communication was perfect. We stayed in the downstairs studio... it was amazing to wake up and see the lush surroundings from three views! The only heads up is that A/C does not exist is "real" Hawaii, but you will hopefully adjust after everything is opened up with both ceiling fans on. We loved the outdoor shower like others have mentioned, used the snorkel gear (just have to rent fins in town - we got them at Pineapple for $5/day), used the ice chest provided (mini fridge only in the studio, gotta keep the beer super cold!) and beach chairs too. Get ice before you go down Napo'opo'o Rd upon arrival - there's nothing after that, you can get it at the Chevron station before the turn down the mountain. Plan to get ice daily. The Choice Market on the highway has the best seasoned chicken that we cooked on the provided BBQ - YUM! We also found the "hole in the wall" Sandy's Drive Thru (not really a drive thru and a tip from a local) really good for breakfast, best deal @ $4.95! Yep, Annie's Burgers is great! The drive / roads at first may seem a bit intimidating, but you get used to it fast!
Manini Beach is awesome, loved talking to Auntie Sandy and Ed (the shell guy) at the bay. The locals have basically grown up in this village and we felt more than welcomed, safe and embraced! We kayaked and saw lots of dolphins (my favorites!) in the bay, then got a tip that the dolphins were going crazy at 2 Step (5-10 min drive), so off we went - AMAZING, such a dream!! The next day too!!
Bottom line = AWESOME MEMORIES!!!! Thank you Dennis!!"

"A gorgeous view, a beautiful home, a perfect spot to vacation.
We stayed here for ten days with our two twentysomthing kids and our son's girlfriend. It was a perfect 'home base' for hiking and snorkeling adventures around the island. When not out and about, we spent most of our time sitting in the chairs by the edge of the water and just soaking up the view.
Krista gave us great recommendations for 'local' dining as well."
