  • Perfect Spot off the Beaten Path!!!

    "We really enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in the upstairs part of the house and had plenty of room. Nice big living room and kitchen area with a very modern feel. I thought it was decorated very well with plenty of taste and suited our needs perfectly. More than enough cooking utensils with pots and pans and appliances to make anything you want. The house was very clean and well kept along with the neighborhood and general area. Has a large wrap around porch to sit out and enjoy the beautiful weather. The ocean was just a short walk across the street and can be seen from the porch. There is a nice little pond literally on the side of the house that wraps through a few of the neighboring houses that we swam in (has concrete steps right next to the house to get in). We split our trip up into 3 nights at this place and 3 nights in a condo/resort on the Kona/Waikoloa side. At the end of the stay we all wished we had just stayed here the whole time. It was very convenient to see the all Volcanoes and the waterfalls, rain forests, warm springs down the road, and botanical gardens. I think the Kona side is more "trendy" right now for tourists, but this side of the island is the true Hawaii for me. Thanks Jeana."

  • Great rental in Vacationland

    "My wife and I had it to ourselves, but there's plenty of room for kids or couples traveling together. The penthouse master has a king bed and private bath with a great peek-a-boo ocean view. There is another full bath downstairs between the other two bedrooms with queen beds, and an outdoor shower for when you return from the tide pools. The kitchen is very well stocked. With a short walk to the tide pools for the best snorkeling in East Hawaii, this is the place. And thanks to Jeana for her help regarding directions and the power outage. She's always on the job!"

  • This is a great, secluded family friendly home

    "We stayed here in Feb for about five days. Its not a touristy area, a real local spot. For our family of five, it was super convenient for: -Volcano pond swimming. -Touring nearby tide pools. -Going to Volcanoes National Park (about a 45 min drive). Key things to do while you're here: -Uncle Robert's night market on Wednesdays. Very cool. -The various heated ponds that are nearby, many walking distance, including Champagne pond, Ahalanui. -Volcano -Seeing Hilo (esp Ocean Sushi). -The outdoor shower is rockin. I don't know why we loved it, but we did. Some things to consider: -Groceries are about 8 miles away, you do need to plan ahead. -Certain tourist destinations do require some driving. But it is the Big Island which is, well, big. We visited Naalehu, about 2 hours away (to see friends) and went to the black sand beach there. Highly recommended. But you can stay to destinations that are less than an hour away and still have a good time. -GPS is super helpful, esp at night when you can't see much (no street lights). Overall, the house just "works." No issues, no surprises. Its not pretentious, just convenient. And that's what we wanted on a vacation. Lastly, the owner (Patrice) is super responsive and friendly. She asked if we needed certain items before we even thought of it."

  • Pretty sweet place

    "This is a prime location, with fantastic sunrise views, access to good snorkeling (the water is warm!), a quiet neighborhood, lots of space, help close at hand, well-equiped kitchen, large deck, BBQ (it's big), and a yard big enough for a large wedding. The place is somewhat dated but is well-maintained and clean. It's off the beaten track - junk food and restaurants are a good ten minutes away - but Pahoa seemed close enough. Check out the Farmer's Market for good local and international cuisine."
