About Nestor Nicolas

Born and raised in PI, I moved to Guam in 1989 and met my wife Lucena. We moved to the island of Lanai for a time and then in 2005, my family and I relocated to the East side of the big island to near our grandchildren. I love to travel, play poker, and meet people from around the world!

Nestor Nicolas purchased this House in 2004

Why Nestor Nicolas chose Nanawale Estates

We chose and bought this property for the simple pleasure of fresh, spring fed county water. (Most subdivisions are still on catchment water tank systems). We were also enchanted by the openess that the vaulted ceilings create, as well as the location of home. I mean who wouldn't want to live on Dolphin Street!

What makes this House unique

County water, high speed internet service, line phone, cable television and close to the entrance of Nanawale Subdivision, nice quite street. House has been recently upgraded with granite tops, vessel sinks, and wood flooring. The outside living space consist of a picnic table and benches, a place to drink your coffee in the morning and when in season pick avocados from tress.

                                                            Are landlords were completely awesome and very nice. I highly recommend staying at this house. The Coqui frogs the wind the beautiful jungle around the house and wonderful Neighbors made our stay completely enjoyable. Having fun Pahoa so close along with the beaches so close made this house a place I will stay next time I go to Hawaii!

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            Wow... Thanks for such a great review. My wife and I absolutely love having you and Ben. Our granddaughter was tickle pick of the cleaning tip she got. Thank you for making our day. Hope to see you again.

                                                            Great home away from home and so close to many local treasures.

                                                            Alisa A.Las Vegas

                                                            From the beginning the communication with Nestor and Lucena has been welcoming. They communicate more than the short few word sentences most hosts do which makes you feel more like a house guest and less like an anonymous customer.

                                                            The instructions for getting to their place and opening the house was clearly communicated. The house is clean! It was a relief to stay here after the not so clean hotel on Oahu. Basic necessities are provided including the much desired coffee pot. It was great to be able to do laundry during our stay. That meant less clothes to pack leaving room for souvenirs.

                                                            The information packet is easy to understand, clear instructions and great recommendations for things to do. I recommend visiting the warm pools and farmer's market while you are here.

                                                            I would stay here again on my next trip.

                                                            Great location

                                                            Raquel G.

                                                            I am from pahoa and have family in the area so this location was perfect. Its At the top of nanawale so you don't have to drive far down a subdivision like most never-ending neighborhoods on island. The house was well kept and the owners were kind enough to put the lights on for me as I arrived late. It is a private home which I liked and the description was accurate and had almost everything I needed. The selling point for me was another guests review stating privacy. Some travelers may like getting to know owners or neighbors etc but I like my privacy and these owners were completely helpful and respectful of that. The queen bed was the most comfy bed I've ever slept on and it is a home for families for sure. I was surprised by the kids books and games,very family oriented and a nice touch. My niece was learning to read so I spent time with her with books I remember reading as a kid. The outside picnic table and grill were selling points too. Make sure to pick up charcoal! Quiet street with few neighbors, no loud barking dogs or chickens, just coqui frogs. There is an abundance of edible native ferns in the backyard, adding good omen to the property. The only thing that bothered me was the gap in the screen door , but if you keep the door shut you'll be fine.

                                                            All in all I was happy with this rental, it's supplies,location,condition and upkeep and would definitely recommend this unit.

                                                            Thank you for sharing you home nestor and lucena!

                                                            Clean, comfortable, great value

                                                            Mary D.Vancouver, WA

                                                            First, the owners are fabulous. They really want to be sure you enjoy your stay. Can't ask for better people to work with.

                                                            The house is large, well-kept up, and clean. Plenty of room. The little things were good, too. Shower had plenty of pressure, plenty of towels, etc. Wifi was fast and reliable. The description and photos are accurate. TV was Roku only.

                                                            This is a great place to stay, but be sure it's for you. It is centrally located for things on the Hilo side, but that means it's 20 minutes from most things. You are out in the country, on a dirt road. But that means you don't have a bunch of noisy tourists hanging around. Just the frogs to sing you to sleep.

                                                            All-in-all, a great place to enjoy the Hilo side.

                                                            We are the lucky ones to have such a great guest. Thank you for your kind words and review. May you enjoy the rest of your stay here in Hawaii.

                                                            Very homey and comfortable!

                                                            My father in law lives locally and having stayed in this cute home was the best! We were able to go back and forth as if we were neighbors! We had our own space and the kids really enjoyed watching TV. We truly felt at home and we will def request to stay here again!! The owners were so kind they even left a gift for us to open on Christmas Day...the kids really enjoyed that. I could not have had a better vacation. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart!!!

                                                            Very nice, thank you

                                                            This house is clean, comfortable and provided all the necessities. Centrally located in the Puna district, it is close to to Pahoa for groceries,gas, etc., and not far from all the other areas you might want to see on this part of the island. I do recommend this rental.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            Thank you for your kind review. You and Your family have been such a delight to have as our guest. We hesitated to let you rent our home knowing that you had two big dogs. Our concern was unwarranted because the unit was left spin and spam... What a pleasant surprise not to have dog hair and unit smelling like a wet dog. Because of our experience with you, we will certainly keep our mind open when other guest ask us if we allow dogs... Thank you again for choosing our vacation rental. Till we meet again.. take care...
