A Home Away From Home
"Planning a trip home to the Big Island under our circumstances was a stressful event. From the moment we contacted Pahala Town House on VRBO, a great burden was lifted. Locating Peter and Fran's Vacation Rental and communicating with them has been a blessing. The photos posted of the property on VBRO does not do justice. Seeing it in person and residing here during our stay far exceeded any of our expectations. We appreciate all of the effort and thought they have put into making this a home away from home. It is beautifully decorated, clean, efficient and practical. I wouldn't change a thing! Volpe's, thank you so much for accommodating our needs, being flexible with our schedule and most of all for your hospitable spirit. Your kind attention and expressions of sympathy during this difficult time for our family will never be forgotten. You and your home have provided much needed comfort at a time of great loss. We hope that our next visit to Pahala will be under happier circumstances and that we will be able to stay here at the Pahala Town House once more. We have stayed at many hotels throughout the years, but they all fail in comparison. Mahalo Nui Loa, Mark and Wendy Fausset of Euless, TX."

"Well-priced, spacious and well-furnished house with beautiful yard adjacent to golf course. Close to Green Sand Beach in South Point, Punalu'u Black Sand Beach (great snorkelling, lots of fish and green sea turtle), and other beaches, Volcano National Park, Kula Kai Caverns in Oceanview; 90 min from Kona and 90 min to Hilo. Macadamia Farms nearby. Punalu'u bakery open daily (southern most bakery in USA). Craft/fruit market on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Highly recommend."

"Although we had an epic finding the place after dark in a rainstorm, this is an absolutely perfect place to stay! It's several miles off the main road (Rt. 11) but a perfect place to relax, enjoy the birdsongs, and revel in the island's beauty. The cottage is equipped with everything you need, including good bicycles and snorkeling gear. You'll wake up early on your first morning to birdsongs and sunrise--straight out your bedroom window. The cottage is beautiful, wonderfully decorated and with everything you need, including kimonos. The gas-fired stove comes on early to take the cool edge off the morning, and the sound and flickering light are charming. Tom and Missy are instantly available if you need them, as we did when we had questions or had to admit that we had driven away and left the snorkel gear in the parking lot. Tom was gracious, and despite his recommendation, we replaced the lost gear.
The grounds are utterly beautiful, the outdoor shower is fabulous, and the chairs overlooking the beautiful eastward view made this an unforgettable vacation, one we hope we can repeat again and again."

"It is never hard to find large masses of people enjoying all of the amazing sights and sounds of Hawaii. What can be difficult is being able to find peace and quiet after a day of touristing about. This rental was perfect for doing just that. If your idea of a vacation is to relax and enjoy awesome views, possess a beautiful private pool, and have all of the modern conveniences still at hand then this home can't be beat. Being able to hike down to a beach that you can pretend is all your own whenever you wish is a huge bonus that I don't know you can find in too many other places in Hawaii.
I feel a certain independence of spirit is required for staying here as the owner lives off-site and the caretaker is invisible if you don't need him. My wife and I needed some time to ourselves and I can safely say we had that in droves. There are better places to stay if you need continual stimuli (there is full internet and tv here if you need it) but if you love laying in bed listening to not much at all or having breakfast outside while gazing over the ocean at infinity then you have found your place.
Everything was clean, orderly and looking like the home we should all have. We left here not only having seen what we wanted to see but also very rested and really not wanting to leave. Perfect."
