Great stress-free vacation

  • 5 of 5

Property is on beautiful bay, private, lots of sun and shade. Ocean sounds great as sleeping aid. Picked papayas and pomelos for breakfast. Mike, the host, is warm and friendly. Will certainly consider returning.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very private and beautiful time in Michael's vacation rental. Very peaceful, clean and well kept. Ocean front with a wonderful garden and lots of birds. Only issue I had at all was the somewhat difficult exit from the ocean as there is a lava shelf and no ladder available. Otherwise absolutely perfect and I think a great deal for the price. Michael is very kind and helpful.

Excellent right on the water and cottages were perfect for our family spring break!

  • 5 of 5

The two cottages were ideal for for us, our son & daughter in law and two grandkids. Mike was an excellent host very helpful and friendly. Cottages were modern and in great condition. Great base for going up north to Kona or down south to Volcano National Park. Ideally located right on the water with a wonderful view.

Amazing! Can we please come back?

  • 5 of 5

This place truly is a gem. Not many places in the islands give you a sense of privacy, charm, luxury and seclusion but with access to an adjacent large luxury resort. There were four of us on this trip and we rented both cottages. We couldn't be any more pleased. The water and views were incomparable. Although we had rented a car, we were pleasantly surprised that almost everything we could think of was within walking or biking distance. There are few places on the Big Island that can say that. When we got there the place was spotless and the owners were available anytime if we had a question such as (great) nearby restaurant recommendations, etc. The group consisted of 2 adults in their 40's and two children (8 & 14). All of us had a blast, we especially enjoyed spotting sea life right from our window, photographing the gorgeous tropical landscaping and, we were continuously left speechless by the world famous Keauhou Bay sunsets. The kids will not stop talking about their favorite vacation ever to all of their friends :-) There was plenty of room for all of us--we even had some guests over, that were staying at another property, who were begging us to let them stay here! We will be back (if you will have us) next time we visit the islands.

An enchanting place in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We look forward to our February stays at this exceptionally beautiful place. Comfortable and luxurious with plenty of room for the whole family plus guests. The oceanfront location is stunning and the water is like turquoise silk. All conveniences are nearby yet the sense of seclusion provides tranquility and privacy. It would be difficult to find another place that comes close to the beauty, comfort, and splendor of this estate. Highly recommended.

A Dream Hawaii Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are two couples who decided to search for the perfect Hawaii paradise vacation.

The Evans Estate we discovered by chance.

We each had privacy in two separate cottages in a private estate. Amazing. Swimming at our doorstep.

And when we wanted to go out of our private compound, we walked a few steps to the the Sheraton Resort next door. Plus lots to do nearby. We are counting the months to return.
