This was a wonderful place for our family of four to stay while vacationing on the big island! We had plenty of space to relax in, comfortable beds and furniture, and everything we needed for the kitchen, laundry, and beach (coolers, chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, snorkels). The owner goes above and beyond with provided information in the binder and other publications, a movie library, labeled outlets, etc. We felt truly welcomed! Also, the sunset from the patio area is beautiful! We really enjoyed facing the preserve.
The location is great with an easy drive and parking pass for the beach club, nearby trails for the lava tubes and fish ponds, and not far at all from Foodland and the restaurants nearby. We enjoyed great nearby beaches at Mauna Lani beach club (Makaiwa Bay - nice snorkeling, provided chairs, shade, restaurant, activities rental), 49 Black Sand Beach (small with limited number of passes from gate attendant - really enjoyed snorkeling here), and Hapuna Beach (loved this one for sand play and boogie boarding).
I wouldn’t hesitate to return and would definitely recommend this rental to a friend.
