"What a wonderful cottage. We enjoyed watching the spray of the waves from the lanai and the peaceful neighborhood. We were fortunate to have found such a great place to stay. Lava certainly is different than I imagined."

Perfect Spot for a Lovely Vacation on the Big Island!!
"What an amazing trip we were able to have at the beautiful Naupaka Guest House. We enjoyed this so much more than we would have at a stuffy hotel in a crowded neighborhood. It is airy and open, private and quiet (except for the sweet coqui frogs in the evening). The place has everything you could possibly need for a hub to have many adventures in paradise. You are 30 minutes from the volcanoes and 15-20 minutes from Hilo. And a very short drive to the warm ponds/tide pools. Find time to have a great meal at Ken's House of Pancakes and go across the street to the snorkel company and rent snorkel gear. Bring along water shoes because the lava rocks along the black sand beaches are unfriendly to bare feet. This was our first trip to the Islands and the location was exactly where we wanted to be to explore it all. In the evenings we came back and were able to prepare meals in the kitchen and relax on the lanai. Thank you Gina and Michael for providing a place that let us vacation like we were living there."

"Bill and his cute and friendly dog Bear welcomed us to their property where we had the chance to feel truly relaxed surrounded by greenery, birds singing, free range chickens, fruit trees and a really welcomed lack of crowds, just locals and the real Hawaii live there. Bill was very welcoming, informative, generous and accommodating, and Bear was always smiling and wagging his tail like a happy dog living in paradise. There are plenty of things to do on this side of the island and all the activities are just a short drive from Bill's comfy cottage."

"The apartment was clean and very comfortable. It was quiet and yet close enough to everything that one would need to be convenient. Heath was very accommodating and pleasant, and very patient with me regarding the TV bugs because of my inexperience. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and the lemons on his little trees which he said I could use for my fish and salads!"
