About Tracey Kikals

Native Canadians desiring a touch of the real Hawaii.

Tracey Kikals purchased this house in 2008

Why Tracey Kikals chose Hawaii

We chose this beautiful location in Hawaii for it's true authenticity and peaceful lush setting. When you wake up here, you feel that you have been transported to the Hawaii of days gone by. There is a great variety of activities from diving, swimming, snorkeling, sightseeing, and shopping. We are located in the country with the convenience of close shopping.

What makes this house unique

While staying in Kalapana, the country atmosphere is augmented by the close local cafe, convenience store and Kava bar. We can see the ocean on all sides and the volcano flowing into the ocean from the meditation room. Drive just a little while and you can go to the most beautiful tidal pools and hot ponds. Up the hill to Volcano National Park, or to the other side of the island to more beaches and scenic wonders. Sit on the beach sun tanning while looking at the snow at the Mauna Loa observatory.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are back in Ohio, but we continue to smile due to our wonderful experiences on the island.

We loved staying at your home in Kalapana. It was a fabulous home away from home. We were particularly impressed with how well stocked the kitchen was. Whatever we were looking for, you had it! We also appreciated your sharing of other items, such as flashlights (and batteries!). The house was extremely relaxing, comfortable and clean. We appreciated the way the cross-ventilation worked so that minutes after entering the house, it was breezy and cool. The meditation room was the perfect place to start the day with some yoga - and of course, a great place to see the glow of the lava flow at night. (By the way, we would have written a note in your guest book, but the book is now filled. We enjoyed reading the suggestions of places to visit both in your owners' book and also in the guest book.

  • 5 of 5

My family had such a wonderful time here! If your'e here on a Wednesday night go to uncle Roberts AWA hale right down the road. They have the night farmers market; lots of vendors , ono food, live Hawaiian/reggae music and a bar. They serve kava in the little grass hut next door :) We stayed to midnight it was a blast! Kaimu beach right down the road is also beautiful and a must see. Took the family also to volcano national park which is about a 45 minute ish drive from here but worth it! The highlight of the trip was driving to the end of the road a few minutes from the hale, we got there to find parking at around 630 pm. Make sure you have some good trek shoes, water and flashlights. The hike is 8 miles total to and back, they have bikes you can rent also and little food vendors at the entrance...We walked but it was worth every mile and every step! Please go if you can! You get to see Pele in all her glory as she pours into the ocean...Go at night and see her beautiful red glow and her power. Tracey is wonderful and so is her hale...Plenty of everything here especially the aloha and the hale and surroundings are beautiful and it's so peaceful out here. If you want to experience Hawaii you won't be disappointed.

Wonderful property with everything you could need

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this house for two nights with my husband, sister and brother in law. I was responsible to choosing where we would stay on the big island. I am very pleased to say that everyone in my group was very pleasantly surprised by the home and how beautiful it is.

The beds were comfortable. Everything we needed was available. We really enjoyed the comfort the home offered and the relaxed spaces all around the house. I spent one early morning in the meditation room watching the sun rise through the back window waiting for everyone else to wake up. It is so peaceful. We spent most of our time outside enjoying the beauty and sounds. The chickens that run around the yard all the time are great and the little kitty cat that visited is so unbelievably sweet. We named her Tiny Tina. The name just seemed to fit her. The cute little gecko's were amazing to watch too.

We found the kitchen to be equipped with everything we needed and the laundry right on the back deck was a great amenity.

If we had not been so tired from our adventures we would have taken advantage of the games that were available in the closet.

This was the first time I had ever used a VRBO and I will definitely be using one again on my next great adventure.

Thank you for letting us stay at your wonderful, beautiful home.

We loved the house and the area. It was so exciting to be in an actual tropical storm(Darby). The accommodation was more than we expected and wished we could have stayed longer. Everything was very clean and comfortable.We saw so many beautiful places while in hawaii and we can't wait to come back! The manager Dennis was great

beautiful house

  • 4 of 5

We were here from 7/29 until 8/12/16. The house is beautiful and it was VERY clean. It's also well equipped and everything worked well. Kitchen appliances were more than adequate however a few more cooking utensils would be nice. There was only a spatula and a large dipper-style spoon. The weather was hot during our stay and the lack of ceiling fans made it very difficult. I bought two small fans so we could sleep more comfortably at night. The owner said she would reimburse me for the fans but I haven't received the money yet. She also said that she would invest in ceiling fans which I think is an excellent idea! The lack of ceiling fans is the only reason I rated our stay 4 stars rather than 5. Would I stay here again? Yes! IF I receive my reimbursement for the fans I purchased and IF ceiling fans are installed.

Everything you need to enjoy the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house in a quiet residential neighborhood with complete privacy. It has all the amenities and more. It is walking distance (15 min) to Uncle Robert's market and restaurant and to the ocean as well. The owner was very accomodating of my changes in plans as well. The house is very reasonably priced, and I highly recommend it!
