Recent Big Island reviews

  • Stellar condo perfect location

    "We stayed for two weeks in this fabulous condo! The condo is layed out perfectly for two couples sharing. It is beautifully finished with high end appliances, gives everyone their own space plus any and all the gear you could possibly need for fun days at the beach.....boogie boarding at Hapuna = Amazing fun! The condo itself and all the grounds at Kolea are beautiful & very well maintained. We did a fair bit of touring around the Island and saw some really magnificent sights but every time we drove through the Kolea gates we were thankful that this was where we chose to stay! We would most defiantly stay here again and again. Mahalo Robert for making it so easy and for answering any and all questions in such a prompt and courteous manner."

  • Ein Traumhaus - just awesome

    "Leider geht ein Traumurlaub in einem tollen Haus auch einmal zu Ende. Unsere fünfköpfige Familie hat sich im Haus ubd auf Big Island sehr, sehr wohl gefühlt. Daran konnte auch Hurricane Iselle nichts ändern, der dann doch Gott sei Dank hier kaum zu spüren war. Positiv: 1. Der Platz, 4 Schlafzimmer, 3 Bäder, ein großes Wohnzimmer, die offene Küche, es gab genügend Raum, damit sich jeder auch mal zurück ziehen konnte. 2. Die Ausstattung, es war alles da, was man brauchte, angefangen von der Kücheneinrichtung, dem großen Gasgrill, fluffige Badetücher für Dusche und Strand, mehrere komplette Schnorchelausrüstungen, tollen Strandstühlen, einer großen Kühlbox, Wasch- und Putzmittel, Bücher, Infomaterial zur Insel, DVDs, CDs... 3. Sauberkeit, alles war pikobello (auch wenn noch ein Kritikpunkt kommt) 4. Die Lage, atemberaubend die Aussicht von der Lanai aufs Meer, atemberaubend auch die "Hauptstraße" von Kona Paradise mit gefühlten 100% Steigung. Der nächste Strand in Hoonakau war 20 Minuten entfernt und ist noch relativ ursprünglich. Zum Volcano National Park sind es, aufgrund des Tempolimits rund anderthalb Stunden, zum Flughafen Kona eine Stunde, nach Kona selbst 45 Minuten (Big Island ist halt groß). Tipp: Echtes Shaved Ice und leckeres Fleisch für den Grill gibt es im Kealia Ranch Shop, auf dem Weg vom bzw. zum Strand. Nicht ganz so positiv: neben den possierlichen Geckos hatten wir leider auch noch andere, nicht ganz so schöne Mitbewohner. Nach dem Angebot an Sprays und Fallen gegen Kakerlaken in den Supermärkten zu urteilen, ist das aber kein Problem, was nur dieses Haus betrifft. Die große Lanai konnten wir wegen der Mücken leider auch nicht genießen. And now a short summary of my review in english: + the space, enough room for the 5 of us + all the things you need are there, kitchen stuff, barbecue, snorkel gear, towels and beach chairs and and and, everything in excellent condition. + everything clean + the awesome sorrounding in Kona Paradise, a unique beach quite near, we love the Shaved Ice at the Kealiio Ranch - a little problem with cockroaches and mosquitos, but that seemed to be a problem for the whole island"

  • Good Value

    "I would say that this is a great deal for the money if you appreciate a remote location. It is near some very interesting natural sites. It would rate five stars from me if the squeaky doors were oiled. The homeowner provided good directions and a map."

  • Big Island in September

    "This Villa lived up to the photos! We had a wonderful stay. Everything we needed was in this beautifully furnished unit. It was quiet yet close to everything and became our home base to explore the entire island over two weeks. We highly recommend this Villa."

Big Island Travel Tips

Hawaii is hands-down one of the most sought-after destinations in the U.S. There are eight main islands, and the largest and northernmost is called the Island of Hawaii -- better known as The Big Island -- to avoid confusing it with the rest of the state. It is a paradise filled with unparalleled natural wonders and all but two of the world’s climate zones, which serve as a home for a wealth of biodiversity. Come get your own slice of heaven on earth.

Kau

What’s a better sight to see than an active volcano spewing lava? Visit the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to see it for yourself. The Big Island is not only big, it’s still growing! Kilauea has been erupting since 1983. Situated 30 miles southwest of Hilo, it is one of the most active volcanoes on the planet. As a whole, the park boasts more than 150 miles of hiking trails through craters, rainforests, deserts and the volcanoes themselves. It is even considered a World Heritage Site. Amazingly, 250,000 to 650,000 cubic yards of lava are produced each day, which is enough to cover a road 20 miles long. Hurry, because no one knows when Kilauea will stop erupting! Catch this phenomenal natural event while supplies last! The visitor center is open from 7:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For the science behind it, take a walk through the Thomas A. Jaggar Museum for geologic displays, videos and maps. Besides the volcano, you and the family can explore Crater Rim Drive, an 11-mile scenic drive within the park.

Kohala Coast

Along the western edge you will find the black lava fields of the Kohala Coast. However, a little further south lies the yang to its ying, Hapuna Beach, which is bursting with Hawaii’s biggest white-sand beaches. Let’s put it this way: Hapuna has hit international top ten lists year after year. The landscape are pristine, and the vistas couldn’t get much better. At Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve, you’ll discover lava rock carvings etched hundreds of years ago by native Hawaiians. No one is exactly sure what they mean, but it is generally thought that these carvings are records of birth and deaths from the ancient culture. There’s no better time than now, so treat yourself to luxury living as you can freshen up at top-tier spas to recharge and feel yourself again. Don’t forget to hit a round of golf on the world-class fairways and greens. Jack Nicklaus designed Hualalai Golf Course, while Robert Trent Jones Sr. had his hand at Mauna Kea Resort. Rest assured, you won’t go wrong.

Hamakua Coast

Hamakua Coast, on the eastern side, is famous for its waterfalls and riveting rainforest. Explore the heart-stopping Akaka Falls, where waters spill 442 feet through a gorge into the river below. You’ll be surrounded by bamboo, birds of paradise and huge ti plants along the way. The coast is ribbed with valleys and gulches that you’ll see during your drive at the Hamakua Heritage Corridor, a trip that passes rainforests and waterfalls alike. Unwind in 275 acres of beauty at the World Botanical Garden, home to the Umauma Falls, before you go zip-lining along vistas of the Pacific Ocean. It’s a perfect adventure for thrill-seekers young and old!

Hilo

You’ll be shouting “ahola” as you arrive in Hilo International Airport in this eastern region. The landscape brims with more rainforests and gardens than you will know what to do with. For science lovers, enjoy the amazing exhibits in the Pacific Museum and Imiloa Astronomy Center, Hilo’s newest top-notch attraction. To get a fresh bite to eat, pick out your favorite exotic fruit at Hilo Farmers Market, a knockout among locals. Cafe Pesto serves seafood caught the same day that will leave you and your family wowed.

Puna

Puna packs those black-sand beaches that Hawaii is known for. Tourists flock to Kalapana, a historic town destroyed by lava. Today, the site is the prime spot to see the lava reach the sea. A few miles away, you can see Keaau, where lands used to be covered in sugar canes. At the Lava Tree State Park, there are molds of trees that lava formed in the 1700s. Swim in pools heated by the volcanoes beside regions rich in tropical fruits and vegetation. Isaac Hale Beach Park provides one of the island’s most coveted surf spots, although swimming is not recommended due to the strong currents.

In Hawaii, you’ll leave with more than just a lei around your neck, you’ll come home with zip-line extravaganzas, volcano explosions and Pacific seafood dinners floating on your mind.
