  • Wonderful homebase for Big Island explorations!

    "We enjoyed calling My Hawaii Dream “home” for a week during our recent visit to the Big Island. Shelley and Jeff were both a pleasure to work with and promptly answered questions prior to arrival and quickly corrected an issue with wifi service once we were at the house. We appreciated the fresh flowers upon arrival. We found My Hawaii Dream comfortable and clean. A work-related conflict didn't allow my boyfriend to join me on my trip – instead I had my brother’s company. And while we found the living conditions suitable for our stay, in hindsight, rental of the additional space (as offered by Shelley) would have provided increased privacy and more comfortable sleeping arrangements for the second person. The house was well equipped with all necessary cooking utensils, easily allowing us to prepare meals. We did not make use of the outdoor grill but enjoyed a soak in the hot tub after some days of exploration. The sound of the coqui frogs at night was beautiful. Combined with the sound of the pounding surf, I quickly missed these natural “white noises” lulling me to sleep once we moved to the other side of the island. The location of Shelley and Jeff’s beachfront house was ideal for exploring many east-side island locations. We spent a couple of days hiking in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (the Kilaua Iki Trail was particularly fun). We explored the varied Hilo attractions (shopping, Farmers Market, Coconut Island and Banyan Drive, Liliuokalani Gardens and Rainbow Falls) and discovered a disc golf course at Naniloa Volcanoes Golf Club (make sure to pick up a map upon paying to play). We had the good fortune of visiting the summit of Mauna Kea with Native Guide Hawaii owner Warren Costa. We ventured north, taking in visits of Akaka Falls, the charming towns of Honomu and Honokaa and Waipio Valley Lookout. While snorkeling options are harder to come by on the east side of the island we made multiple visits to Richardson Ocean Park and the Kapoho Tide Pools. Via Highways 137 and 130 we enjoyed a loop drive through the beautiful Puna district and walk out to Kaimu Beach Park. The Big Island is a special place. There is a great deal to explore and the beauty is vast and varied. Our time at My Hawaii Dream allowed us to settle in and make the most of our visit on the island, while giving us opportunity to create cherished memories."

  • SEAWATCH SHINES

    "The description and information listed about Sea Watch is spot on-so I am giving you OUR thoughts rather than repeating information. WE LOVED OUR STAY. This was our second visit to Sea Watch. We were there in December of 2013 which was a little too early to whale watch. But this year we saw 30-50 whales. The highlight being a whale so close to the house we could hear it breath! Sea Watch is a home whose back door is 90 feet from the ocean and you can hear the melody of waves breaking on rocks day and night. The home itself is very nicely maintained and extremely clean. The house is very bright and cheery. The ocean views out the back of the house are great-on a windy day you can have sea spray reach the back door! We rent property to be on the ocean-not 1 street away from the ocean and Sea Watch definitely meets our needs. Fishing poles are available (in the closet) if you want to step out the backdoor and try your luck. The owner "Sam" is very nice and very responsible to your needs. If you have a problem she will solve it. We had the TV stop working one evening. Sam came over and tried to get the set to work. After failed efforts she was going to buy a new TV set right then so we could watch TV that night! What other Property Manager does that? We enjoyed the house and its location so much that we would sight see a day and then stay at Sea Watch the alternate day. An important feature of Sea Watch is that it is a premier property with a very reasonable rental rate! John Ramos Sequim, Washington"

  • Beautiful, Comfortable House

    "We had the pleasure of staying at Michel and Duane's house for a little over two months. This house is wonderfully laid out that makes everything convenient. The kitchen is large and there is everything you would need. Everything worked well. The lanai gets a wonderful breeze and we enjoyed sitting out there in the evenings. There is a variety of fruits that grow in the yard that are for the picking! Plenty of water storage; there was a long period without rain and the storage at the house never went below 12 inches from the top. The yard was immaculate. The entire property is fenced with a gate and a concrete driveway. I think this is a very understated rental. It is much nicer than the pictures reflect. I recommend staying there. Thanks Michele and Duane for your hospitality and for sharing your home."

  • Big Island First Timers

    "My wife and I stayed a week and used the Hale Moana Uli as our home base. We did a lot of exploring from Green sands beach to the top of Mouna Kea. The home was well appointed and would comfortably accommodate 3 couples. All of our needs were more than met. The view each morning from the upstairs lanai was amazing. We would have our coffee and breakfast and even take in some morning sun from there. The property itself is a bit rugged. We sort of carved our own path down to Beach Rd. and joined folks walking and hiking along the coast. It was quite nice. My biggest concern was the gas grill. The igniter did not work and running the gas and tossing in matches is not the safest way to go. Jeana was great and there were no issues with booking and payment. Would highly recommend and we would love to return and do some more exploring."
