  • Fun local Hawaiian experience

    "Loved all the space, and the home is decorated in such fun Hawaiian themes and colors. We had three kids, and three adults so we are glad we rented the extra room that comes with an extra bathroom too, that was helpful. The house has everything you need for your stay, very comfortable. The owner will do a load of laundry for a fee, which we needed. They also had a great selection of DVDs which my kids enjoyed. There is no AC but with the many fans it was still comfortable. The only thing that was strange, but ended up working out better than we thought, was that you can't use the water from the faucets. You can only use the water they provide from the large water bottles. The house is tucked away in a neighborhood and feels very private. It's a great location to get to Volcano NP, waterfalls, Hilo's farmer market and many more fun things. If you are questioning coming the Hilo side of the island, you should go!"

  • Getting Away from Almost All

    "We chose to stay at Heaven's Door because it represented a change of pace, an out-of-the-ordinary experience that makes a trip to the Big Island even more memorable, for all the right reasons. Linda was a great host to work with. She's justifiably proud of her property and provides you with all the information you need to ensure your stay is everything you want it to be. The house is spacious, well-appointed and comfortable. There's no A/C, but there are enough fans to cool things down and temperatures dip low enough at night that you won't break a sweat. You'll share that night with seemingly millions of coqui frogs croaking their hearts out. Amazing how you won't notice them after a while even after you've turned up the volume on the TV. You're really in a rain forest, no hype. And it'll probably rain every day you're there, but usually not for too long. As other reviews have duly noted, this is a special property, with the koi ponds, lush vegetation, gorgeous trees and some out-of-the-ordinary neighbors. We only saw one of the feral cats once. No wild pigs or mongoose materialized, though I'm sure they weren't too far away. Not to worry. They don't want to meet you either. We had come from four nights in Waimea, so most of our activities while at Heaven's Door were centered on Hilo (an overlooked gem of a city) and Volcano. The former is about 25 minutes away. The latter slightly over an hour. We made the round-trip to the park twice--doable for a long day trip. The house is well-positioned for exploring the Hamakua and Kohala coasts. You can be in Waimea in about an hour taking the Saddle Road. Bear in mind the house is a decent drive to any groceries or restaurants, so best to plan accordingly and shop for provisions before you arrive. You're kind of "out there." That means Wi-Fi is slow. Instead of cable TV, there's a large DVD collection (we watched "An American in Paris." You won't miss those comforts of home. Bring a book. Fall asleep early. Dream about coming back here another time. Then wake up to another day in paradise. It's why you made the trip."

  • Perfect getaway!

    "Our family had a great experience in this home. Our kids loved the pool and we loved that there was plenty of room to give everyone their own space. We could hear the waves crashing on the cliffs across the street, that was a really nice perk. We plan to come back again!"
