Relaxing Vacation at Hermit Crab Cottage
"My husband and I vacationed here during the 4th of July Holiday week. Tybee was festive and busy but once we set foot on this property we wouldn't have known that there were other people on the island. It was a cozy home where we were able to relax and watch the tides come and go. We enjoyed the porch for early morning sunrises and evening sunsets. The cottage itself is charming and just the right size for the two of us. We were blown away by the lovely artwork of Sally Bostwick, who owned the cottage and was a well-known artist in the area before she passed. Be sure to walk into the kitchen in the dark and look at the painting on the wall, it has an interesting special effect that makes it look as if the steam from the crab pot in the painting is rising up out of the painting. The cottage is clean and well-appointed and the owners are helpful and pleasant to work with ... even when I lost the key to the cottage. Embarrassing. It's an easy 3 - 4 minutes to the North Beach by car and close to everything at the north end of the Island. The dock is amazing and we caught a lot of crabs the week we were there. Neighbors are close on one side but you wouldn't even know you had neighbors it was so quiet. I have no complaints but will mention one unique thing about the property. The bathroom adjoins both bedrooms "Jack and Jill" style so it could be a little uncomfortable for some renters but really, as long as you remember to lock the doors and knock before entering it would work. The property is too nice and affordable to let anything like that be a deal breaker as far as I am concerned. Thanks Lynn for making us feel so welcome and for providing such a lovely home. Thanks also for sharing Sally's artwork with your renters. It is so special."

"The home was wonderful. Loved the porches, kitchen and main living room with the view of the yard/stream and the wood burning stove. We had plenty of room for 6 and enjoyed great access to the Beaverkill.
Owner was very helpful and responsive.
Will stay here again"

"We loved the beach house! It was the perfect spot for our family (with 2 young children). The house was fully equipped & everyone had plenty of room to spread out. The beach was amazing & the view was wonderful. Thanks again...we plan on returning."

"I submitted a detailed review when we were here in 2013 (see submitted 2/17/13). This continues to be our favorite place to come on the Big Island. We have already reserved 51 days for Jan/Feb 2016. The owner continues to upgrade and improve the top floor unit of this condo. Last year we were treated to a remodeled kitchen that included lighting updates, new counters and sink, and an attractive backsplash. The location, large lanai which is very private, on deck barbeque, open beam ceilings, terrific pool and well stocked kitchen is why we keep coming back to Keauhou Punahele."
