Guestbook comments from the manager

Excerpt from Guest Book:



"Dear Sterling & Trisha,



Our family had a glorious vacation and it started when we arrived at your home. Staying for two weeks gave us the opportunity to really settle in and enjoy your home and this side of the Big Island.



We balanced quality relaxation time with sightseeing. We have travelled all over the world and this is the first time we actually rented a home and "what a home!"



Two quotes sums up our experience. My mother-in-law: "I was just ecstatic and taken aback with my room and time here." Our eight year son, who has been to Disneyland, San Diego, Hawaii on two previous visits, Florida, Jamaica and many other places: "This is the best vacation ever!"

Beautiful & perfect

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely beautiful & I would recommend it highly. The kitchen is stocked, home is clean, located remote enough to feel relaxing and close enough to be easy to access the sights of the big island. The sounds at night are an added treat! I did not think I would use the hot tub but after many long/difficult hikes the hot tub was a pleasant help & used often. The owners are committed to making your stay comfortable. There is no AC however, there are fans in every room and with the windows and screens opened and the fans on the house was very comfortable. I found the owners to be friendly, kind, and easily accessible with dialogue and communications simple, direct, and easy to understand. The home was beyond my expectations and I cannot rate it highly enough!

a truly special place

  • 5 of 5

Three couples shared this lovely home located in a truly special place. We all felt like we were living in our own private garden. You are surrounded by lush greenery and flowering plants. And yes, you do have your own lava pond. We didn't really take advantage of this, but it certainly added to the beauty of the home. We did take advantage of the lovely seating area by the pond for many of our meals. Just a gorgeous setting. Another wonderful advantage of staying here is that you can walk directly to the tidal pools--only about 5 minutes. And the tidal pools provide an exceptional opportunity for snorkeling. We saw so many varieties of colorful fish and even various colors of coral which the Univ of Hawaii has seeded. So nice to see living coral. The location of the home is a bit isolated but that is also a part of the charm. We met very nice people in the area--many of whom gather in the morning to watch the sunrise. The town of Pahoa is small but has a wonderful vibe with several restaurants and opportunities for shopping. There is a wonderful farmers' market outside the town with reasonably priced fruits and veggies, prepared foods and interesting crafts/art. Besides the tidal pools, our favorite activities were touring at the Volcanoes National Park including taking a 4 mile bike trip to the site of the current lava flow and watching it descend down the cliff into the water below and touring the Hawaiian Botanical Gardens, north of Hilo. I would have liked to take a day to take advantage of all Hilo had to offer, but we ran out of time. You will definitely enjoy the Big Island, the Puna district and this very special home in Kapoho.
