Eia Makou (Here we are!) is the name of our fabulous home with both gorgeous ocean and mountain views. For decades our family traveled to the Big Island. Our kids grew up learning Hawaiian dances and Polynesian culture. Finally, we were able to buy our dream home, and now we share it with you. Please see reviews submitted by our guests, many of whom return every year. Hawaii is special. A Hawaiian Kahu blessed our home, and we have furnished it Hawaiian style, with every modern amenity blended into the spirit of Aloha. The furnishings reflect the combination of excitement and relaxation and all are in the Hawaiian tradition, from the lime and lemon trees (pick your own) to the historic Hawaiian memorabilia on the walls. There are TVs in all three bedrooms as well as in the great room. The kitchen is as complete as one could wish. Eia Makou is the perfect spot for family bonding and offers a base for exploring the diversity of the Big Island, from beaches to volcanoes. E komo mai ('please come in.')

The home is nicely furnished and very well maintained. The view from the hilltop is awesome and the pool and hot tub are so enjoyable. Barbara makes sure everything needed is available. The neighborhood is so quiet and peaceful you feel you are the only one staying in the area. It is really a 5 star plus rental.

                                                                        Amazing property with an outstanding view of ocean and sunset

                                                                        Neal McElroy M.

                                                                        This house is so much more than I expected that I don't really know what to say. The house and ground are immaculate and maintained to perfection. This is by far the best rental I have ever stayed in. As to directions to find the house, it was pretty easy. It might be a good idea to include the long white rail fence right at the turn off the entrance road. Every time we returned to the house we used that fence as a landmark.

                                                                        Stunning home!

                                                                        John H.

                                                                        This was our third time staying at this house and it never disappoints. Loved the improvements they have made to the house; new ductless air conditioners in each bedroom, beautiful new doors, new privacy fence and a horseshoe pit. Fantastic!

                                                                        Ideal, peaceful home with great amenities!

                                                                        Vicki L.Ben Lomond, CA

                                                                        We have stayed on the big island many times and this home offered the peace and quiet that we were looking for. The open floor plan with the view out to the pool was perfect. We spent a lot of time on the covered lanai enjoying the landscaping and long-range ocean view. They have made a point of providing separation from the neighbors so you really have a sense of privacy. We really liked that the master bedroom was separate from the two bedrooms on the other side of the house. Barbara was fantastic in responding immediately to our questions and a couple of items that need attention. We appreciated that it was a little cooler than down at the coast and enjoy the variety of weather. We look forward to returning soon!

                                                                        John P.Nanaimo

                                                                        The well stocked kitchen made preparing the great variety of local produce easy. A great wine store in nearby Waimea completed the dinners. The rooms spacious, we wanted for nothing. The location provides expansive open vistas yet the house and grounds are very private. Everything is well maintained and overseen by our wonderful hostess Barb. We look forward to returning here and continuing our adventures on the Big Island of Hawaii.

                                                                        Beautiful, Clean and Private!

It is clean and well stocked with whatever you may need. From plenty of bathroom & beach towels to anything you may need in the kitchen. It is beautifully maintained and the décor is lovely.

                                                                        It has a lovely view and the pool is clean and warm.

                                                                        I HIGHLY recommend this rental!
