At Home like Vacation Home
We loved the place. It is well managed and clean. Owner is very attentive to any concerns of the travelers. We are thankful for the owner's kindness providing us with fresh fruits every morning. There were splended indeed.
There are some points which are not controlable by the owner. Such as a private road going to the property is unacceptable and requires better maintenance.
Aloha to both of you,
Thank you for taking the time to write the review.
We are from Minnesota; the number one budget of the state was road repair due to heavy snow and ice. In Hawaii, the road repair is an ongoing affair due to the gravel being washed off by relentless rain. Hawaii gets the highest rainfall in a year. As home owners, we pay more than what we paid in MN; here we have to pay association fees since these are private roads. In MN, only the main roads were maintained all through the year but the side roads - the same story there and here.
WE HAVE GOOD NEWS FOR YOU; THE ASSOCIATION HAS FILLED ALL THE POT HOLES; WE CAN ENJOY THIS UNTIL IT IS WASHED OFF AND THE STORY IS REPEATED.
Yet the beauty of this place and the hospitality of the people brings visitors from all over the world. Wishing you both a warm welcome since you are going to be our neighbors soon.

Very helpful owner and very clean!
All in all was a great unit and location. We appreciated the house and the diningroom outside - best location by far! The unit had all the amenities we needed. Plenty of beach items like bodyboards and kitchen items, etc. The Volcanos National Park is only e few minutes away. The owner Jay was very kind and more than helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. We can recommend it!
