  • Beautiful house and grounds, very well-stocked

    "My family (husband and 6 yo daughter) and friends (couple w/o kids) spent a week in this very comfortable home. It was a fabulous vacation with active and restful times. You can have this place as both launching pad and retreat. The space was great both inside and out, with lots of amenities. The house was well-stocked with everything for day outings (snorkeling equipment, beach chairs & umbrellas, coolers, etc) and had lots of supplies like spices, condiments, shampoo, and sunscreen presumably left from other guests. We added to the stock since we purchased all at the grocery store before arriving...save yourself and check out what is there before you buy more. The only drawbacks we encountered--that had nothing to do with the house--were the location and weather on that side of the island. We did not know that the "wet side of the island" means WET. There was more than the quick daily shower that we'd encountered on other tropical vacations. We definitely had some nice, sunny times and the pool/hot tub/cliffs are a great place to enjoy that. But there was a lot of rain while we were there. To get to the classic sandy beaches involved quite a drive in most any direction. However, the location is convenient for some areas like visiting the volcano. Just set your expectations for some rain and you should have a great time as well. I also want to note how great the property manager and owner were with a minor repair that was needed on the day of our arrival. It turned out not to be necessary, but they were prepared to put us up in the nicest hotel in Hilo or another rental house on the same street. We ended up getting into the house just a few hours later than planned and everything was absolutely taken care of. Overall, I would highly recommend this house if you are headed to the Hilo area!"

  • Incredible - Exactly What We Wanted - Highly Recommend This Property

    "We were looking for a peaceful relaxing setting for the second week of our Hawaiian Holiday. We got far more than we expected. Their property is delightful, beautiful and peaceful. We enjoyed all the different types of fruit trees and other exotique trees on the grounds. Had so much fun feeding and watching the Koi in their pond, swimming in our own private swimming pool and being able to BBQ on our own patio. Wow - it was fantastic! Toni and Kim are warm hospitable hosts and we are very thankful for their friendship. We didn't want to leave and definitely want to return. Ronnie and Marie"

  • Better than I could have imagined

    "There's not much I can say that hasn't already been said, but this place is better than I could have possibly imagined. I came to get away from the city and Ohia Grove was the perfect escape. I loved being lulled to sleep by the sounds of nature and woken up by roosters crowing. It was absolutely incredible! I could have spent a whole day just roaming around the property and soaking in the beauty (if only I'd had more time!!). The owners also gave me some great tips on things to do in the area and were available if I needed them, but totally respected my privacy otherwise. It was perfect. Thanks Rich and Don for sharing this little piece of paradise :)"

  • 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."
