We've stayed here many times
"We've been staying at this house for many years. It's not only a great place to relax at the end of a busy day, it's also a great place if you don't want to do anything! We've spent the entire day just hanging out watching dolphins, turtles and whales from the shaded lanai.
Don't let the lack of A/C scare you away. It isn't needed as long as the windows are open to catch the ocean breeze. Also, there are ceiling fans in every room.
Quiet street perfect for a leisurely walk or a brisk run. You can even hike up the coast from the end of the street. That's a great way to spend the day. We love the neighborhood so much we bought a lot nearby.
Why stay at a hotel when you can have so much more here?"

"We are a family of 3 and this cottage was the perfect amount of space for us. It was so much fun to swim in the beautiful ocean outside your back door. The geothermal "pools" are just spectacular! Bring your own snorkel gear. We were in the water everyday checking out all the beautiful fish. Many people pay good money to get a snorkeling trip like the one in your own backyard. We saw tons of beautiful fish everyday and even swam beside 2 Sea Turtles! It was truly spectacular! House was well stocked with towels and everything that was needed. The master bedroom is very small and the bed not too comfy. But the second room of 2 bunks (4 beds) was great. If you are a family of 4 or 5 this is still plenty of space. It's a cute funky beach cottage and we LOVED every second. If you are not big on lizards and geckos you may be a little squeamish! However, we LOVED seeing all the geckos outside and in the house. There was one in particular that must live behind the cupboards in the kitchen. Numerous times we gently removed it from the house and every time it wound up back inside. My 7 year old daughter just adored catching and releasing geckos. It was hours of entertainment. Lots of crabs down in the "pool" too. She loved seeing them and we did catch one baby one while there to check out and release. The crabs are really quick. They don't like humans and move out of sight when you get near. So again nothing to worry about if your not a big animal lover like we are.
The only negative was that along side of this property is the public access route. So there is a constant stream of people walking alongside your property to access the pools as well. We stayed Monday through Thursday which I'd consider the slow part of the week and there was still a steady flow of people each day. So it wasn't really as private as I would've liked but guess that's the price you pay to be somewhere as gorgeous as this. Others want to see it too :) We'll be back! Mahalo!"

"These owners embody the Hawaiian spirit of friendly acceptance. We felt welcome immediately upon arrival with a chilled plate of limes and guava and a huge bowl of fruit. The kitchen is well-stocked with condiments to get started and plenty of counter space. Extra amenities such as Band-Aids, hydrogen peroxide, flashlights, and umbrellas enabled us to enjoy this beautifully landscaped property after a day of exploring the island without driving back into town to purchase items we forgot. Our questions were promptly answered via email prior to our stay and information about local restaurants and day trips was readily available within the apartment. This location was very convenient to National Volcanoes Park and to Hilo. There are also good restaurants only 5-10 minutes away. We enjoyed both Volcano House and Kilauea Lodge.
We stayed at three other VRBOs during our island hopping, including a stand-alone home, and although they were all very comfortable and relaxing, this rural luxury space was most like the Hawaii we think about on the mainland. Clean, quiet, and comfortable, with spacious bath and bedroom, and decorated in the Hawaiian style, it made us feel at home. The ambience of the property is charming and the cool air of the evening lulled us into deep sleep.
If, in the future, we return to the Big Island, we hope this lovely sanctuary will still be available to rent."
