  • Beautiful and Relaxing Paradise Home

    "This home is wonderful, particularly for families with small kids who don't want to stay in a condo or resort. We traveled with three kids (5, 3, 18months) and I loved the idea of an orchard and a swimming pool to keep them occupied if we were working around nap times or meltdowns. Our kids LOVED playing (though closed toed shoes are a must for the orchard) and exploring. The setting was picturesque and private even though it is a residential neighborhood. Debbie was also so thoughtful to provide a pack n play when I mentioned I might need one. Beach towels, snorkeling gear, and sun hats are also available for your use so don't bring from home. In addition to the lovely setting, the rooms were spacious and clean. There was plenty of garage storage for our stroller and suitcases and preparing meals at home rather than eating out was very nice. It felt like home, which if you travel with kids, is a big bonus. This home is located on the "beach side" of the Island so if you want volcanos and waterfalls it is a bit of a drive, but it is close to Kona and all the shopping you could desire. Its proximity to the airport and the Costco were a big plus as we had rental car issues that required us to KEEP going down to the rental places near the airport, but it wasn't a distance. Debbie was great to work with. She replied to all questions I had very promptly and the people she had caring for the house (gardner/pool maintenance/trash guy) were all very affable and accommodating. The gardner even took my mother in law and husband on an hour long tour of the orchard describing the fruits and plants AND brought lovely fresh flowers. It was paradise and if I am lucky enough to go to the Big Island again, I would DEFINITELY stay at this home a second time... maybe without the kids! ;)"

  • Couldn't Ask For More

    "My wife and I stayed in Bruce and Barb's rental property for our 20th wedding anniversary. The house was perfect. Everything we could have needed was there including DVDs, games, snorkel and beach equipment. The house was decorated with amazing artifacts that must have taken years to collect. Make sure you look closely at everything. Bruce and Barb are the perfect hosts. If you need it they can provide helpful tips on what to see and where to go. The location was ultra quiet but we could still hear the ocean waves from the lanai. We'll be sure to contact Bruce and Barb the next time we're on the big island. Mahalo!!!"

  • A much needed vacation

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The House was very clean and smelled good upon our arrival. All the necessities we needed were there. The only issue we had was no A/C made for some uncomfortable nights sleeping. The views are beautiful and the house offers multiple places to sit and relax. All and all we enjoyed are week long stay here and would recommend it to anyone who can live without A/C. Thanks for all your accommodations, Sam and Stacy"
