Guestbook comments from the owner

Joyce: Thank you very much. We enjoyed our stay on Hawaii. We very much prefer the Hilo side and we love the area around Pahoa. Having your home as a place to come home to after a day out and about was wonderful. I do hope to return to visit and will certainly look to book you home as my first choice.

Thank you again for allowing us to enjoy your wonderful home during our time on Hawaii.

Gorgeous house for sure

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, spacious house with a large kitchen and lanai. We grilled one night, fixed large breakfasts every morning before we took off on our adventures. It is in a subdivision, but there was rarely anyone else at home in the neighbors houses. Yes, the roosters are a nuisance, but we're all farm people so they didn't really ruin our sleep. The first evening was very warm, but, we opened all the windows and started up the fans and it cooled off pretty quickly. It's close to the highway, and from here we explored Carlsmith Beach that has the friendly turtles, Pahoa that has amazing restaurants, Hilo for a helicopter ride and a farmer's market and flea market, Rainbow Falls, then Akaka Falls, the thermal pools, Volcano National Park, and even Mauna Kea's access road, and up to Hawi for ice cream. We even had to take one of the kids to urgent care which was very handy at 6 miles away. This place was just right for our large family and an east side vacation.

Well maintained property.. great for families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in December and were an extended family of 10 people. We loved the place. It felt like our own home and had everything we needed for our stay. We cooked daily and did not face any issues. Place is quite and calm. Lack of AC was not an issue as it was winter. WIFI was great as well.

Large, beautiful home for our family of 8!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 8 (including 3 small children) spent 4 nights in this beautiful home -- we enjoyed all of the space this home had to offer, including spacious garage (we rented a Suburban!), vaulted ceilings, and outdoor patio. This home has a lot of windows that cooled it down quickly at night and brought in natural light during the day. There is no A/C in the home so it did get pretty warm during these August days (especially on the 2nd floor), but Joyce brought in extra fans for all of the bedrooms (in addition to ceiling fans). The roosters did get pretty loud at certain times throughout the day (the farm was across the street), but we closed the windows at bedtime and used white noise which completely drowned them out. We'd definitely recommend this home to anyone with a large party looking for lots of room (after our stay, we spent 3 nights in a small hotel room in Kona and we certainly did miss all of the room in this home for our kids to run around in!).

Hope you like roosters crowing!

  • 3 of 5

We stayed for three nights. First the good, the place is newer and the furnishings were okay, had all the utensils we needed. Now the not so good....upon arrival the house was so hot we immediately looked for the A/C to turn on., but found it labeled "Do Not Use". Usually I can handle places in HI with no air but this house has high ceilings and the hot air just collects, so be prepared to keep the windows open and there are ceiling fans in the bedrooms so that helped to cool it somewhat at night. The are two rooster farms located next to this property. They crowed all day ...and all night - you will hear them with the windows open. The neighbors also played basketball one morning at 6 am. Also when we used the laundry we had to pay $1.00 to wash and $1.00 to dry, seemed a bit excessive to me. Would not stay here again.

Our experiance was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We came up to the Big Island for a baseball Tournament and Joyce was so helpful about her rental. I called other rentals but wouldn't allow us to have 10 people in there homes. When I talked to Joyce I explained my situation and she was very understandable. When we got to the house we were amazed it was so beautiful and roomy. The only down fall was it was hot but the house has a lot of windows. We talked to the neighbors and they said yes the weather has been very hot the last couple of weeks so we can't control the weather. Our overall stay was wonderful and the kitchen area is amazing lots of room for cooking and not having to eat out every day.

50th Birthday celebration in Hawaii

  • 4 of 5

This was our first visit to Hawaii. We selected this home for its value for our group of six people for the week (A hotel would be much more costly for everyone). The house was clean and represented very well in the pictures on the site. The roosters (mentioned in the other reviews) could be heard in the front bedrooms...we were in the master and couldn't hear them. We had an enjoyable stay at the house.

It was supplied with all the day to day items you would need in a home.

We would recommend it to our friends.
