  • "Awesome!"

    "I'm borrowing the title from my niece's review of our vacation and this condo. We'd planned this vacation for nearly a year and had been in constant email communication with Janice, who answered nearly a million questions from me (thanks Janice). The condo is everything advertised, clean, well furnished, comfortable. It is literally stocked with everything you need and you don't need to bring anything (except 2 changes of clothing- you can do laundry daily if you want). Janice has thought of everything (check out the spice cabinet under the counter across from oven/stove) to make your stay most comfortable. The photos do not do the condo and views justice. The views are SPECTACULAR! The sunsets, the surfers every morning, the dolphins swimming by mid-day to late afternoon, falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing at the shore and waking up to them as well. We even had a total lunar eclipse when we stayed last week. Activities: pool, beaches, hiking Volcanoes National Park (you need a car for this--96 miles to the park one way but go as it is worth the drive), finding the best place for shave ice (hawaiian ice cones at the Lanihau shopping plaza, contrary to trip advisor's), barbecue (there are lots, but be sure to check out big Jakes at Captain Cook off of highway 11) and just good food (big island grill on Kuakini Highway--we were there 3 times just for fish and chips alone but do try their loco moco). We would all have gladly stayed another week had it not been for work and school. A VERY BIG MAHALO to Janice for sharing this little bit of heaven with us."

  • Hillside Paradise

    "Our family of nine, two generations, had a wonderful experience for our first visit to Hawaii; this home was the icing on the cake! We spent time exploring/snorkeling/shopping during many of the ten days. But the quiet time just walking the five acres of orchards, eating meals outside with the glorious sunsets and swimming in the wonderful pool was probably the best part. We could have just stayed there at the beautiful home and not done the sightseeing things - it was a sweet private resort all its own! We enjoyed the delicious avocados and other fruit we could pick daily. The house is set up so that the two grandkids roomed with their parents in the upper Master and had their privacy for naps, etc. The other rooms were perfect for the older kids; the extra Master BR/Bath was nice for my wife and I. We hope to book Pu'u Mahana annually for our family and will be recommending it to all of our friends as well."

  • I can't wait to return to Dolphin Bay Cottage.

    "I can't imagine a better place for a pair of friends to enjoy the peacefulness of the Big Island. Arrival and check-in at Dolphin Bay Cottage was very easy. During our stay we did not need to contact the owner or the caretaker because we didn't have any problems. The cottage was clean, airy, nicely furnished, and stocked with just about every incidental item that we forgot to bring. My friend and I took turns sleeping on the bed and the fold-out futon. Both were very comfortable. It felt refreshing to sleep with the windows open, to enjoy the breeze and the sound of the sea, to wake up to filtered sunlight through surrounding tropical garden foliage. In the mornings we'd stroll to the beach, enjoy coffee and a leisurely breakfast, pack sandwiches for a day trip of hiking and snorkeling, come home to cook dinner (use of the gas grill was awesome!), and finally stroll back to the beautiful beach for peaceful sunsets and stargazing. The snorkeling in Kealakekua Bay and nearby Honaunau Bay were unforgettable highlights. The five days flew by and I wished I had stayed longer. Thank you for your hospitality. I can't wait to return."
