I don't know exactly what it is about this magical place but everyone who comes here feels it. It has a relaxing and comfortable air about it that enhances your vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you both SO much for hosting us this week 5/8-5/16. We very much enjoyed your beautiful home and had a blast getting to know you guys and the animals too 😀. We wish we had some suggestions for you guys, but the only thing we can think of is to move Albert's bed into our room to make morning snuggles a bit easier.

Wishing you guys the best and please stay in touch!

Aloha,

Stephanie and Julien

Beautiful, peaceful, luxurious...

  • 5 of 5

Kate's place is LUXE! Finest linens, cleanest house, most sublime views. We left her house to stay at an amazing jungle treehouse in Volcanoes and we all wished we'd never left Kate's.

Spacious, comfy home filled with Aloha

  • 5 of 5

My experience at Kate's property was incredible. The views are expansive and the property has so much to offer: fruit trees, horses, walking, star gazing. Her home was so comfortable, from the cushiony sofas to the Super soft bed sheets. The home felt cozy and clean. Her property was also the perfect location to stay to have easy access to Hilo town, but removed and tucked away in a safe gated sanctuary. My stay at this property was absolutely one of the highlights of the trip. Waking up and sipping coffee gazing out of the lanai at the beautiful Big Island views...I would reccommend this property to everyone!

Absolutely Relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful. This is definitely a place to go to if you want to get away. The peace and quiet is a perfect feeling but still close to the town.

I would stay here again and again.

A beautiful piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

To say this property is beautiful is truly an understatement. The view alone from the lunai leaves one feeling like they will never want to leave. My daughter and I enjoyed the spaciousness of the home and the large lovely decorated bedrooms. We made use of the kitchenette each morning for preparing toast, coffee and cereal to enjoy on the lunai. Kate was easy to communicate with and gave perfect directions to her home. The property is located in a rural setting with beautiful grounds and a view to the ocean from the back. It was a perfect little piece of paradise for our time in Hawaii.
