Bonnie and David designed and built this house in 2008, and have lived here since. We love living in Hawaii and the Mountain View area. The climate is cooler and pleasant.

The second story apt. is 600 sq. ft. with a full kitchen and bath, king bed, twin day bed as well as a spare cot and crib are available. A private lanai over looks the garden and forest.

Our rental is centrally located for exploring the entire east side of the Big Island. Hope to see yo soon Bonnie and David

What a wonderful place to stay !! Great location near Volcano National Park..

Gracious hosts who put much thought into everything you might need to feel “at home”

I hope we’ll be able to return someday to the Big Island, if so we will look forward to staying here again.

Not for us

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I stayed here 2 nights. The place is beautifully decorated and lots of space with everything you need. A nice touch was all the fruit that was in the kitchen left for us to eat. My husband and I didn't care for it being located in the same house as the owners. Also had to have the gate opened or closed by the owners, if their dogs were in the yard. A little inconvenient (and I love dogs)... just not what we are used to when we are away.

Not the best vibe for us.

Lovely home, lovely owners!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most delightful VRBO properties I've had the pleasure of visiting. The interior is beautiful with many surprising, custom touches throughout. It also included THE MOST COMFORTABLE bed I've ever slept in (honestly, if I had this bed at home, I might never be coaxed to get out of bed to go to work again).

The owners -- David and Bonnie -- also seemed to think of everything: a vase of fresh-cut flowers, umbrellas in case it rained, a bag of beach towels, and lots of literature on nearby attractions. We hope to return for a longer stretch next time we visit, to take advantage of the lovely, fully-stocked kitchen (including condiments and spices).

We loved our stay here! It was the perfect location that enabled us to take lots of day trips into Volcano National Park, South point, and Hilo.

The location is private, very clean and well stocked. You can tell that the owners think about how to make the vacation better for their renters! It also feels very roomy inside. Bed is very comfortable.

Bonnie and David are very knowledgeable and were able to recommend places to eat and things to do. There is also a large amount of information within the rental re things to see and do. They are also so nice and have two adorable dogs.

The property itself is very lush and tropical. It was lovely to fall asleep to the rain. Parking is right next to the house and there is a separate entrance with a large lanai.

We would absolutely stay here again!

Beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this apartment. It was lovely - immaculate and well stocked. The owners have decorated it beautifully and left no detail out, right down to Q-tips, bug spray, and anything else a traveler might need. The location is a bit off the beaten path but we loved that. It feels like you are in the rain forest. We went to sleep to the coqui frog sounds and awoke to the birds singing. The owners, Dave and Bonnie, were wonderful to work with. Highly recommend this property. It's a little piece of heaven!!
