"We had a great, 2-week, family vacation on the Big Island. Your Hawaiian home is very warm, inviting, clean, beautifully decorated and surpassed our expectations. It was very nice to be welcomed by Bennett and for his assistance with our questions. He definitely helps the process run very smoothly. We really appreciated your quick and friendly responses to our emails throughout the rental process. My husband and I and our two teens (14 yrs and 17 yrs) felt very comfortable in your home. Our daughter has mobility issues and your one-level, ground-floor home was easy for her to access and move around in. It was definitely the nicest rental property we have stayed in and we really appreciated all the “extras” that it was stocked with. We had an extra piece of luggage filled with snorkel equipment, binoculars, laundry soap, dish soap, body wash, shampoo, conditioner and cooking spices because we normally need to provide these ourselves in a rental property. Anyone renting your property is very lucky to have all these items and many more extras such as beach towels, chairs, body boards, toys and even tennis racquets and balls provided in your home. The location was the perfect home base for our many, daily excursions around the island. We enjoyed cooking our own breakfasts and most dinners in the condo and appreciated having a barbecue which we didn’t have to wait for or share. It is very handy to have a Costco a half hour away in Kona for our large grocery shopping trips. We visited a different part of the island every day and also enjoyed a sunset and stargazing program on top of Mauna Kea and a 2-hour, helicopter tour to the active volcano, rainforests, Hamakua Coast, Kohala mountains and waterfalls. We were very lucky to visit Hawaii Volcanoes National Park on a night when the active vent gave us a wonderful show of lots of molten lava churning and splattering in the dark sky…an amazing experience. We really liked the Beach Club and black sand beach at Mauna Lani and Hapuna Beach. There are soo many nice areas to enjoy in the Mauna Lani Resort area. David and Chris, we can’t thank you enough for generously allowing us a late check-out when our flight was leaving at 11pm. We will highly recommend your home to anyone visiting the Big Island. We can’t wait to come back!!!"
