  • Perfect oasis and location!

    "My husband, daughter, and I, along with my parents so very much appreciated and enjoyed this beautiful hale! It was a perfect location to drive to and experience both Hilo and Kona! The house is spacious and cozy especially with the fireplace on chilly nights. The house was clean and welcoming and had everything we needed for the days we were there! Spending mornings on the wrap-around lanai with our coffee while the sun was rising was magical and peaceful! And the sunset and stars were amazing! Again, a perfect location to be able to take a drive and see Hilo, Akaka Falls, Rainbow Falls, Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, the Green Sand Beach, South Point (Ka Lae), or Pu'uhonua O' Honaunau Park, Kona, and Hapuna Beach."

  • Awesome Place - Great Stay!

    "We love this condo! It has beautiful high beam wooden ceilings and a great deck, with an amazing view! We liked the high stools and table on the deck so much we contacted Sue to ask where she got it!! The place was clean, well-stocked, and cozy. The Big Island is amazing. Our highlights were getting incredible close-up photos of a Short Eared Owl on a post, two whales breaching, and seeing a 45-foot splashing lava flow at night on the Volcano! Sue was super helpful and reached out to us several times. Thank you, we would love to come again!"

  • Relaxing Retreat

    "We stayed here for 5 days for our tour of the east coast of the Big Island. This house is wonderful. It is secluded in an amazing setting 6 miles up the hill from Rte 11. It really is a place where you can relax and get away from civilization. There is separate room from the house that is almost like camping. There is a half bath inside and a full bath outside. The outside bath is enclosed with an shower that is open on one side and a bath tub on the deck. We LOVED it. When we arrived we were so happily surprised that it was a special as the pictures showed. This is a house that you will be driving alot if plan on going out. It is 30 minutes from Volcano and 20 minutes from Na'alehu so if you want to eat out, you should do it while you are out of be sure to shop for dinner materials in Hilo (1 hours) or Kona (2 hours). The good thing about not staying near Volcano is that Pahala is drier. I did not want to have rain all of the time and like I expected, Hilo and Volcano were far rainier than Pahala. We went to the national park for a day, the next day we took a helicopter tour and then toured the waterfalls near Hilo (Rainbow and Akaka). The last day we went South to Black Sand Beach of Punulu'u and then the Green Sand beach and to South Point. Definitely go to all three. At the Green Sand beach parking area you will be greeted by locals who will take you to the beach for $15/pp. Or walk the three miles and take a ride back ($10/pp). This house is great for touring the east side of the island, but the Big Island is big - you will drive a lot to tour the island no matter where you stay (Kohala coast or Hilo side). Many people don't realize this - so this house is a great place to stay if wanting to visit volcanoes and south point areas. The night sky is amazing as well. this is a DARK site! Thank you so much Sandra!"

  • Home away from home!!

    "Our family had the privilege of staying at this beautiful vacation rental for a month and a half. I can't even begin to describe how fabulous this home is. It is situated in a peaceful residential community surrounded by a golf course, lovely green vegetation, palm trees, and flowers. Everything you need for your stay in Hawaii is available at this home to make your trip very comfortable. The kitchen is amazing. It is fully equipped with every appliance, baking pan, and cooking supply that you could ever need. The entire back wall of the kitchen living room is a huge window with 2 large sliding glass doors that open out to a lovely lanai overlooking the pool and golf course. It hs the feel of an outdoor living space. The lanai is a covered dining space and is fabulous, complete with a built in gas grill. This area is perfect for sitting having coffee, watching the sunrise and listening to the birds but then offers shade for later in the day. All of the bedrooms are nice sized and beautifully decorated. The beds are very comfortable and nice linens are provided. TVs throughout the home work great as does the internet. There are beach chairs, coolers, and umbrellas for use at the beach. Also, a very nice washer and dryer. I can't say enough of how much we loved this home. The owner and property managers were wonderful to work with and very accommodating with meeting any of our needs. We thoroughly enjoyed this area including exploring South Point, the Green Sand and Black Sand Beaches, Hookena Beach-snorkeling and swimming with the dolphins, the volcano, and the lovely little town of Na'alehu. There are 2 nice grocery stores in the town of Ocean View which is 15 minutes away. It is a bit of a drive to Kona or Hilo but if you are wanting a nice relaxing vacation out of the busy city and resort area this definitely is a place for you."
