  • Love this house!

    "This is a great historical home located right on Hilo bay. The king size bed in the master was comfortable and our kids each had their own rooms. The views inside and out are incredible as is the property itself. Our kids spent hours finding frogs in the backyard. Keala was amazing and helped us get settled despite our very late flight. We will absolutely stay here again!"

  • 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."

  • Great apartment and centrally located

    "Apt. has a great feeling about it and and wonderful views. Tasteful, tropical style decorating enhances the views of the pool, landscaping and observatory (when weather is clear). Apt is part of a complex set on the edge of a large lake and park and makes for great walking and duck feeding experiences. I highly recommend the apt and owner is pleasant to work with."

  • excellent home off the beaten path

    "My wife and I really enjoyed our stay. If you want to get away from the hotels on the Big Island this is a great way. The house, the guest house and the main house, are off a quiet road allowing a lot of time to enjoy the ocean views and quiet atmosphere. The owner was fantastic, friendly and attentive to our needs.. I recommend highly and will stay again."
