  • A wonderful 2 Weeks

    "My partner and I spent two wonderful weeks in July 2016 staying with 5 other friends in this glorious location. The place is well equipped for large groups and sometimes we used both kitchens to prepare meals. We had lots of balconies to choose from and the top deck was stunning at sunset - a 360 degree view.We solved the challenge of the bedrooms often being through ways in this long narrow house, by using the balconies which surround the house on both level one and two. It really felt like being in a ship. The bay itself was a treasure to swim and snorkel in. Many days the spinner dolphins came in and we swam with them in the respectful way we had been shown - no reaching out and touching them and no chasing them. We just waited for them to come by us which was such a joyful experience. Staying in a hotel doesn't suit us nearly as well as being in this little village with a two minute walk to the bay or the pier. Manini beach close by was great for a sandy entry to the waters. Sylvia was great to correspond with. Thoroughly recommend this experience."

  • 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."

  • Surprisingly seculeded

    "If you are looking to get away from the it all this remote home is the perfect getaway. The home is surrounded by lava fields and the access road is steep and very curvy. Beach and kayak access is a drive and hike away. Home is spotless and as beautiful as the pictures"

  • Look no further !

    "WE STAYED HERE FOR 7 nights! It was the perfect location for our needs. We were visiting our daughter and granddaughter who live in the area. They would come everyday and spend time with us at this 'gem' of a house! I agree with the other reviews about the pictures on the website. It is even more impressive in person! Thanks again to Candi for her quick response and all her hard work in making our stay so enjoyable . We would definitely stay her again👏👏🎈"
