  • Thought I'd died and gone to heaven!

    "From the moment my husband and I arrived at Aina Lani (Earth Heaven), it felt as if we had indeed discovered heaven on Earth. This delightfully cozy and beautiful remote sanctuary offers an exotic, back to nature feeling, yet has many thoughtful touches of luxury and conveniences. Owners/hosts Anne and David built this cottage with great love and you can feel it. It is reflected in the amazing woodwork - the mango countertop and shelves, custom trim, to the warm, soothing decor and tasteful furnishings. Abundant windows allow for all around views of the gorgeous, lush grounds and gardens. Lying in the deliciously comfortable bed, we could simply turn our heads toward the huge window to see stars in the night sky and lovely foliage in the morning light. Incredibly romantic! Anne and David are there when you need them, but then disappear to insure absolute privacy, peace and quiet. I have never felt so safe and at peace anywhere. For those who seek spiritual growth, this sanctuary is the perfect location for meditation, inspiration, and reflection. Remote and raw, yet easily accessible via a remarkably well kept paved access road. The Volcano, Hilo, Punalu'u black sand beach and other points of interest are easy day trips away. Coming home to this cozy hideaway was a highlight of each day. Our only regret is not allowing enough time to enjoy the property more thoroughly. Five days flew by in this paradise. A full week ( or longer!) would be optimum. We preceded our stay here with equal time at the more touristy Kohala area, which was lovely, but cannot compare to the serene joy we experienced at this hideaway on the road less traveled. Tips : Be sure to ask Anne about her book, which tells the story of how Aina Lani came to be , as well as insightful descriptions of the island and all its wonders. Reading it while here added greatly to my appreciation and enjoyment of the special place we were so fortunate to discover. Also, pack a set of long sleeved top and long pants. In winter it can get a bit chilly (mid 50's) at night here, as well as at the volcano and other sites at higher elevations. The cottage does have a heater, and our thoughtful hosts even provided his and hers slippers which added to the coziness factor."

  • Wonderful Stay at a Beautiful Place

    "We had a very relaxing stay at this beautiful place! The house is situated in a very quiet neighborhood with great views, it was a joy to spend time there relaxing! It was also an excellent base, to go and explore the island from! The house is very nicely furnished and is equipped with everything you will need for your stay. The owner has paid close attention to details and has provided all of the cooking equipment needed. Plus provided some of the basics and those left by previous tenants, such as olive oil, seasonings, salt & pepper, mustard, jams, etc.. We greatly enjoyed cooking on the gas stove and a gas barbecue. Toys were also provided for going to the beach, such as boggy boards, coolers, towels, beach chairs, etc. Since the house is located on a golf course, the owner also provided a set of golf clubs! It was very, very clean upon our arrival and the owner had it cleaned during our two week stay. Definitely, a place to go back to!"
