About Lisen

Aloha from Hawaii! We invite you to enjoy our Graeagle home. This is our 'home away from home' where we love to come for something completely different from what the islands have to offer. We live above the Kona coast where we farm organic Kona coffee with the help of our geese, ducks, sheep, dogs and cats. During the summer we enjoy traveling on the mainland in our RV and spending a few glorious days in Graeagle before heading back to Kona for harvest season. We want your stay here to exceed your expectations and hope you'll consider it your 'home away from home' too!

Lisen purchased this house in 2004

Why Lisen chose Graeagle

We chose to buy a house in Graeagle because of the incredible variety of recreation offered for families and couples. The past few summers our kids have been able to experience a top-rated summer camp, just half an hour from Graeagle--Shaffer's High Sierra Camp, where they have mountain biked, wind-surfed, hiked, rafted down rivers, zip-lined through the forest--you name it! They've learned so much and had the time of their lives. While they're at camp, Des and I have the time of our lives, too! We enjoy lots of quiet time, hiking and biking. We'll certainly have to take up golf because this is one of the best places if you're a golfer. We especially love taking a break from cooking and dining in the incredible selection of restaurants nearby. We have fallen head over heels for the friendly town of Graeagle which welcomes us back every year with smiles and 'aloha'.

What makes this house unique

One of the best things about our place is its location--so near to the lovely town of Graeagle, yet so close to the lakes, rivers and hiking trails. In the evenings, we love to walk or bike right from the house through the neighborhood, around the Mill Pond, on Graeagle Meadows Golf Course trails, or down to Frosties for a frozen treat. We can walk through this quiet neighborhood for an hour and not have one car pass us. We love that!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you again for renting your lovely home to us. We had a fantastic trip. It ended too soon. I would have been happy to stay a few more days.

Your home was awesome for the for the following reasons:

- Location was great. It is secluded. It was nice being at the of a cul-de-sac. And it was close to the little downtown. (we occasionally heard the traffic, but it didn't bother us)

- Very homey. We felt like we were at home away from home. Everything was comfortable - the couch, chairs, and especially the beds. All the extra touches were awesome - bird feeders, pillows, decorations, art. It all added to the ambiance, which we really appreciated.

- Well equipped home in every respect. The kitchen had every gadget, pan, cooking tool we needed. Plenty of things to read, play, exercise, bikes. Honestly, best stocked house I've ever stayed in.

- Clean, well maintained home (nothing to report)

I would definitely come back to Graeagle in the future and hopefully you will still be renting this house. We saw that you have a home for rent in Hawaii. We used to go every year, then decided to start venturing out to different places. Maybe one of these years we will go back. If yes, we will take a look at your place.

Thank you again for your hospitality.

One of our best getaways!

  • 5 of 5

The home was spacious yet comfortable, and everything was provided! It was wonderful to sit in the living room and look out the picture window at the humming birds and doves. My family and I had dinner on the deck one night with perfect weather and dinners at Longboards which was fantastic and Moon's after driving to Quincy. I'd recommend both! The fenced in yard was perfect for our sweet dog Domino. We had two great lake days at Goose Lake and Gold Lake. We love the Lakes Basin area and will return!

The house has everything you need for a wonderful time in Graeagle. The kitchen is setup with every pot and pan and utensil for making great meals. We lived on the deck and cooked our meals on the grill. There were 5 of us and the house was comfortable and provided ample space. The fenced yard and the deck were perfect for our dogs. Lisen was responsive to all our questions.

Nice house, no AC, not pet friendly

  • 3 of 5

Really nice house, great location, beautiful deck, near excellent golf courses. We were looking for pet friendly house which this property said it was but in the last section of details of the house it said "dog not able to go in the house". A rental is not pet friendly if you are not allowed to have the dog in the house. It was 100 degrees each day we visited and it made it real tough on the dog. There is no air conditioning in the house so it got uncomfortable each afternoon even though we opened the house at night and closed it up in the morning. The instructions said that we were to take off our shoes before entering the house so as to not walk on the carpet with shoes. That is not really something that you want to remember when you are on vacation.

Owner's Response: This gives me a wonderful opportunity to address a few issues. We are indeed pet friendly with a large fenced back yard and deck for your beloved family member. We only ask that you not to let your pet roam free in the house but rather have them crated if you would like them in at night. We've found this keeps most everyone happy--those that like to bring their pets with them and those that like to rent a home that doesn't allow pets for various reasons--allergies, cleanliness, etc. With regard to air conditioning, we have a number of fans and advise the use of mother nature--closing up the house in the early morning to keep the nice, cool air in through the hot afternoon. This seems to work very well for most everyone and it is what the "locals" do. Much of the time, though, in Graeagle, the temperatures are delightful and this isn't a worry. We don't actually have instructions saying to remove your shoes--we ask politely if you would consider going "Hawaii Style" and removing your shoes while in the house. It is just a suggestion and entirely your decision. We live in Hawaii and it is customary to do this. It also helps to keep the house nice and clean for our guests. Thanks for the opportunity to clarify--we very much enjoy the delight most guests find in staying at our house.
