BEST RELAXING VACATION EXPERIENCE IN HAWAII
"This house is well built!! The owner makes it a home away from home. It is clean, got good vibes, surrounded by beautiful art work, island flavors from a regal native local who is full of ALOHA, knowledgeable, and the owner!! We slept so good feeling the ocean breeze and waking up in the morning right on the shore line with nothing in front of us but water, dolphins, whales, fish, geothermal pond and coconut trees. We went to Hawaii! We are coming back again!! we recommend it to family, many friends and clients. We are lucky she still owns the home because it is our families retreat vacation home for years! Mahalo."

"We immediately fell in love with the arrival in the house. It has a lot of charm and is very tastefully decorated. The kitchen is huge. The covered porch is a dream, just like the view. On listening to the birdsong morning, just wonderful. The whole booking process was very friendly and very well documented.
Will be back soon!
We hope we can come again. Much obliged."

"We had such a relaxing, comfortable time here, and daydream about our return! Jan has created a comfortable, informal, Island-style atmosphere that makes you feel at home right away. With the short path to the tidal pools a few steps away, the location couldn't be more convenient. The lush vegetation surrounding the house and tidal pond creates privacy that lets the the screened lanai be an extension of the living space, with day beds and rattan dining set. Jan has planted orchids from her farm everywhere in the garden, and there are orchids in every room in the house. We had a wonderful, informative tour of her orchid farm while we were there.
The spacious kitchen is very well stocked with all kinds of cookware and appliances so we always ate at home with groceries from Pahoa or Hilo and perfectly ripe fruit from the Farmer's Markets. We also borrowed some of the provided swim/snorkeling gear for visits to the adjacent Tidal Pools and to the Alahanui Warm Pond a few miles down the road. Friends joined us for a few days, and the additional outside shower house gave us all elbow room. There is an ample library of travel books, a scrapbook with local recommendations, plus TV, WiFi, and games -- and laundry room with even more books! We were charmed by the little green geckos that discreetly patrol the walls and the sounds of the doves and other birds. Jan was a most hospitable and considerate host and made us feel the true spirit of Aloha. We can't wait to return, and hope that there will be a vacancy!"

"The Lite House is a great little house away from all the hustle and bustle of Kona and Hilo. We walked to the Champagne Ponds every morning for a quick dip. The house is on the edge of a quiet a serene neighborhood at the edge of a lava field. Watching the sun rise over the lava field each morning was magic."
