  • QUIET OASIS

    "We very much enjoyed our stay in this vacation home on the west side of the Big Island! It was nothing fancy, just quaint with a beautiful view of the ocean! It was exactly what we needed after a death in our family forced us to reschedule this vacation. (The owner was very gracious in accommodating our revised plans and did not charge us for the changes.) The property was clean and seemed well-maintained. We especially liked the two separate bedrooms so us parents had a separate room from the kids. And the kids each had their own bed. We were surprised by the catchment water system that they have but were supplied with bottled water for our drinking needs by the owner. Thank you. The hillside community is peaceful and safe. As others mentioned, this house has a steep driveway, so we parked at the end of it and walked down the steps alongside the driveway and then up the steps alongside the house to the front door. The home is far from grocery stores and restaurants but we had planned for that. We absolutely loved the Fruit Stand for most of our grocery needs. The home made a great base for our exploring the island from Kona to the Southern Point to Volcanoes National Park. One note, the pictures made it seem that the kayak for use was a 3 person one, but it is not. It only holds 1 person safely. We did use it a few times. The pebble beach that is at the bottom of the hill in this community is quite nice and a great place to swim, snorkel and kayak. We also made use of the beach chairs and mats and snorkeling gear! One day when we stayed more local, we were thrilled to see a gray seal swim up to a small snorkeling beach in Captain Cook! We would recommend this home to anyone wanting to explore the island, enjoy some peace and quiet and doesn't mind driving for food and supplies."

  • Quiet, clean condo near the Punalu'u Black Sand Beach

    "My husband and I stayed here for 12 nights and enjoyed everyone of them! The condo was quiet and clean and had all the amenities of home. You can see and hear the ocean from the lanai. Punalu'u Black Sand Beach is right down the road and we were able to see turtles on the beach almost everyday! We also enjoyed some star gazing at night from this beach. We enjoyed the pool and hot tube at night and so did many of the other residents at the condo. Unfortunately, you are not allowed to hang your towels on the lanai to dry. We spent a lot of time in the car driving to see all the different attractions on the island (1,600 miles in total) as the condo is fairly far removed from the main areas on the island. The nearest grocery store is about 1/2 hour away. We flew in and out of Kona, however, I would suggest flying into Hilo as the drive is less curvy and takes less time than driving from Kona. A cool local trick we learned while we were there is that there is no need to buy water at the store. There are local water filing locations all over the island which are free! They aren't well marked but ask a local and the will point you in the right direction. There is one in Naalehu. All you need are empty water bottles. The Volcano National Park is about 45 minutes away and was an amazing experience. We had dinner at the Rim House Restaurant for our anniversary and stayed to watch the glow of the volcano once it got dark which was amazing! Akaka Falls was a also highlight, as well as Kapoho Tide Pools. Overall, we had a fabulous vacation and loved staying here. Highly recommend. :)"

  • What a beautiful house and tranquil location!

    "Our family of 3 stayed here for 9 days in February and the accommodations were perfect. The house is spectacular. I can just repeat the comments below like 'the well equipped kitchen has everything you need to make gourmet meals' but will just say you will not be disappointed in any way. The view of the ocean from the lanai will blow you away! Get back before the sun sets and you will be in for an incredible view. The road to the house from highway 11 was indeed a curvy couple of miles but it became part of our excellent adventure for our first trip to the Big Island. It's a nice location point for most of the locations you WILL want to see. Thank you Naomi and Paul for sharing your wonderful place with us! PS: I was going to email you on our last day to say we were not going to leave and you would have to personally have to drag us out :) Hard to leave but all good things have to come to an end."

  • Yurt in the Sky is the perfect name for this unique vacation rental

    "I always wanted to stay in a yurt and it did not disappoint. Unique location up high. You definitely have to be adventurous to stay at this property. Great proximity to the Green Sand Beach and South Point."
