About Lisa Biedenkapp

We are Don and Lisa, Life changes brought both of us to Hawaii, Lisa grew up in the SF bay area and Don lived in So CA. We met and married here, we started a small business, and live and work in Kona. We LOVE to travel and to share our home.

Why Lisa Biedenkapp chose Ocean View

I choose this property for the acreage and the peace. It's quiet with amazing views of the coastline during the day and beautiful starry nights and a comfortable distance from neighbors.

What makes this house unique

The property is unique, the style of the home and being surrounded by black lava.

beautiful accommodation with impressive location

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent six beautiful days here in September 2017. The tranquility and seclusion is really very pleasant. In the house everything was as promised.

The codes for the gate and the house worked fine, so therefore a recommended accommodation.

Very cool home

  • 5 of 5

Seeing the craftsmanship and detail that went into this small home is worth the trip. It is incredibly clean and located in a very quite neighborhood. It was also great that the home was well stocked with pretty much every condiment you could imagine and there are several stores a short drive with good food selection and reasonable priced beer. My wife and I wanted to experience the South End of the Big Island on the end of our trip and I'm glad we stayed here. There are several great beaches, national parks and south point is worth seeing, all within a short drive.

Spectacular view of the ocean!

  • 5 of 5

If you're going to The Big Island, you should stay in this vrbo. It was a leisurely trip around the Island from this beautiful, clean, modern home.

We could have driven around the whole island in 5-6 hrs, but we stopped to eat and shop and view. Almost exactly halfway between Hilo and Kona, we were able to go and see easily, but then return to this beautiful "round house" (as we nicknamed it) to relax and recharge.

The owners were very helpful and friendly; they communicated in a quick, efficient manner.

I don't think I would change a thing about this house. I have stayed at a few vrbo's, and this is my favorite. From the so-comfortable bed, to the nice linens, to the comfortable chaises on the lanai, to the sparkling clean, to the absolute quiet, to the stars at night.

I would recommend arriving during daylight hours, as Ranchos is very dark at night- no street lamps. But, this is a good thing, as the beauty of this area is pretty great during the day... view of the grand ocean, then a black sky lit up at night with nine billion stars.

Can I recommend this house? Absolutely. Will I return to visit? Absolutely.

Thank you Lisa!

Lovely, well furnished and peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our 3 night stay at this home. We purposely tried to stay away from the tourist hub-bub while on the Big Island, and this location very much helped us to do that. It is in the "boondocks", but two grocery stores, gas stations, and at least two adequate restaurants nearby. Its in a sparsely developed gated community, so no traffic noise. Located on a high points, right on top of a lava flow, it provides a nice view of the sea and of South Point (the most southern point in the United States). Very nice sunset views! The home is small (just right for two) but well appointed. Nightlife limited to a very nice collection of movie DVDs for the big screen TV! Owners/property manager very welcoming and helpful.
