About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

Sun Tracks Across the Water ---

Sun Tracks Cross the Water

Beautiful panoramic sunset views across the curvature of the earth. Close enough to watch whales, away from crowds and the beaten tourist path, your vacation starts here. This brand new custom vacation house is 600 feet (about 200 meters) elevation and in the most comfortable climate in the Hawaiian islands and probably in the world.

After spending a day fishing, hiking, golfing, driving, sightseeing or shopping, you come back to this tranquil home. Having a glass of wine on the lanai, you enjoy the sun gradually setting over the horizon or the moon rise casting a column of light cross the water.

This 2 story house sits on one acre

This 2 story house on one acre offers 2 bedrooms and one bath. Bamboo cabinets surround a custom kitchen/dining area. It is fully equipped for your comfort and convenience. We think that cooking and eating are a part of vacation, so we purposely attached a custom dining table to a gas range/oven. You can cook and eat among enjoyable conversations and wonderful views a the same time.

Beautiful home with lots of amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This oasis is perfect if you are looking for a quiet romantic getaway free from the hustle and bustle of Kona and Hilo. This is definitely a repeat stay for us. Owners went out of their way to make us feel welcome! Awe-inspiring Kileaua and snorkeling at Two Step were just a few highlights of our trip. Also a local eatery called Mehe is a must for their delicious fish and chips!

Quiet, safe, confortable, lot of space, affordable with an awesome view

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Naomi and Paul's house was fantastic. The kitchen is very well equipped with a lot of space. The 2 bedrooms were very confortable with a lot of space too. The bathroom was like brand new. Lots of towels. The living room is very large. The lanai is big with a nice breeze at night. The washer and dryer are in the garage. They have 2 camping chairs, boogie boards, cooler (big and small), snorkel gear, beach towels (4).

The house is one hour from the volcano and one hour from Kona. The snorkel down the road is amazing.

Naomi is very nice and stayed in touch before we arrived and during our stay. The day we arrived,Naomi wrote to us that the BBQ was broken. So i told her that it was important for us to have one during our vacation. Then, Paul bought one the second day. It is very important for them that we were happy in their house.

This house make you feel aloha.

We will come back.

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

My son and I went to Hawaii for some time off and to do some hiking. We rented a car and made this home our central location. It was wonderful! We got up early each morning and had breakfast on the front deck watching the boats glide by down below. then we packed a lunch and disappeared for the day. It was great to have a home to return to each evening. Sunsets here are incredible with an amazing pink sun and then eventually a massive pink glow. The house is beautiful with beautiful bamboo trim, flooring, and cabinets. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and the bedrooms comfortable and pretty. The living room was also very nice and comfortable; although we spent more time on the porch. The breezes are great. This is a home not just a house.

Private Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a well thought out solid design. Very clean, and breezy! Like others have mentioned it makes for a great base camp to explore the Island. We enjoyed planning our next day each evening on the spacious deck with drinks and an unbelievable view! I took way too many pictures from there.

Thanks again Paul and Naomi for sharing! It was also great to have met you both! I'm sure Michelle will want to thank you again as well. Probably more in person by email.

By for now.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I'm not the type to normally leave detailed reviews, but this house was so absolutely amazing and wonderful that I felt compelled to.

First, as far as the transaction, I can't imagine a transaction going any smoother. The hosts kept in close touch several days before the stay just to make sure everything was in line. They contacted us again the day before arrival with explicit instructions and all the details covered. Then again throughout the stay, they did everything they could to make us feel welcome, yet still gave us our space. There wasn't a single detail they didn't cover.

In regards to the house itself, as many others have indicated the pictures don't do this rental house justice. The owners of the house did much of the construction themselves, and as a result there are so many special "extras" that you just couldn't put a price tag on. For example, the living room coffee table was made out of a single huge slab of wood that was honed and polished by the owners. The craftsmanship in every aspect of the way this house was constructed is absolutely first rate, and spurs me to treat the house and furnishings with even more care than I normally would.

We also were fortunate enough to have met the owners during our stay, and I must say they couldn't have been more kind, gracious, and friendly. It felt like we made instant friends. I could say much more, but I can assure you if you rent this house you won't be disappointed.

P.S. Just be prepared for the inevitable depression that will sink in on the morning you must depart this house. ;-)

What a beautiful house and tranquil location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 stayed here for 9 days in February and the accommodations were perfect. The house is spectacular. I can just repeat the comments below like 'the well equipped kitchen has everything you need to make gourmet meals' but will just say you will not be disappointed in any way. The view of the ocean from the lanai will blow you away! Get back before the sun sets and you will be in for an incredible view. The road to the house from highway 11 was indeed a curvy couple of miles but it became part of our excellent adventure for our first trip to the Big Island. It's a nice location point for most of the locations you WILL want to see. Thank you Naomi and Paul for sharing your wonderful place with us!

PS: I was going to email you on our last day to say we were not going to leave and you would have to personally have to drag us out :) Hard to leave but all good things have to come to an end.
