About Owner / Manager

Aloha! We fell in love with the Big Island the first time we visited in 2010. We love being in the Big Island and spending the day at one of the numerous beautiful beaches, swimming with turtles, snorkeling in tidepools, hiking to see lava flows to name a few. We decided to make a home here so we can enjoy life in paradise with our children and friends and share it with others.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Beautiful home, very comfortable. The grandkids loved the open area to play. The best part was how quiet it is here, no traffic noise.

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home well maintained. Took us less than 3 minutes to walk to Magic Sands Beach that we frequented many times. It was less than a mile drive to Kahaluu Beach which was perfect for snorkeling. We were lucky enough to be here when there were mangos from the tree in the backyard. They were delicious!! Neighborhood was quiet and the location was very convenient. What a wonderful place to come back to after spending a day exploring the island. We will definitely stay here again when we visit again!

Convenient and quiet

  • 4 of 5

A short walk to Magic Sands was nice and quick drives to Kona village, snorkeling and restaurants was great. About 20-30 minute drive to groceries in quiet traffic.

House was comfortable and quiet. Instructions for entry and exit were clear. Some games helped keep our kids entertained when waiting for meals and internet was also strong. Outdoor shower was a plus for removing sand. Only problems: Clothes washer was difficult to fill with enough water for a load and had to supply our own detergent. There was no complimentary coffee as was stated in welcome notes. All in all we had a lovely time at this rental. Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your feedback and review. The closest grocery store is actually KTA Super Store in Keauhou Shopping Center which is about a 7 min drive south. Otherwise Safeway, Walmart, Target are about a 15 min drive north :) The washer is a brand new one that was installed less than a month ago. I looked up the way it works and it fills only a certain level, spins and then fills some more as that is the way the sensing mechanism work. I washed a few loads last week and it worked perfectly and the clothes were clean. Apologies for the misprint by the Property Manager in the welcome book. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to having you and your family stay with us again!
