  • Loved our stay here!

    "This was our first visit to the Big Island, and we spent a week here celebrating my birthday. We're not exactly the resort variety, and we like to immerse ourselves in the local culture. With that in mind, we found this place to be perfect in that aspect. Our favorite things about the unit: - As was mentioned in the other reviews, the large lanai. We spent most of our mornings and evenings here enjoying the view and the sounds of the surf. The lanai overlooks the famous Banyan Beach surf spot, and we enjoyed watching the surfers. The view from the living room and bedroom were excellent as well. - "Da Poke Shack" is right downstairs! This place is consistently ranked as some of the best poke on the Big Island, and it was the first place we ate upon arriving. - The unit is fully stocked (especially the kitchen). We're "foodies" so we didn't spend much time preparing food here. However, there were a few occasions where we made breakfast, as well as some fresh Kona coffee (there is a grinder and coffee maker), and we found everything we needed. We could have just as easily prepared food here all week with how well stocked it was. We also found the washer/dryer very useful as well as the laundry basket. - The free Wifi. - The air conditioner in the bedroom. We stayed here at the end of July, so there were a few nights we ran it when it was especially hot/humid. As somewhat of a side note, I believe somebody in another review mentioned it was on a 2 hour timer. It is actually a 12 hour one. - The Big Island Revealed book under the coffee table (among the many other useful guide books). This especially helped us with our exploration of the island. - The ample parking. A couple of other notes: - As a friendly note to future renters, the ceiling fans in the bedrooms are on speed switches with a scale of 0-4 (with 0 being off). In the excitement of everything, we set it at 4 the first night thinking this was the fastest setting. They only ran at medium speed though. It didn't occur to us until the next morning that 1 is actually the fastest setting. - Liane (the owner) was very responsive, helpful and friendly. We will undoubtedly consider her units first when we return to the Big Island. Thank you for making our stay a wonderful one!"

  • Our family loved this property

    "Our family of six, including my retired parents, stayed one week with Barbara. This was our second time using vrbo, so we don't have much to compare with. However, we have to agree with all the positive reviews. Truly exceeded our expectations. My nine year old asked if we can come back again next year!"

  • Best Island Vacation

    "We felt at home from the moment we arrived. Vicki was friendly, gracious, and helpful from prior to booking right up through our visit. Mahalo! The house is spacious for friends and family, very clean, and the whole property is wonderfully private and homey. The hot tub grotto is beautiful. The pool is cold in February! The view is terrific from above the beaches and town and still the drive to everything is short. So many great beaches just 10-30 minutes drive, we could visit a new one everyday. Even Volcano National Park and sites on the other coast are just a couple of hours drive. There are plenty of supplies from beach towels, pool toys, boogie boards and snorkeling gear to pantry items and condiments. A trip to Costco and we had everything we needed to enjoy meals "at home" and pack lunches for our outings. So many things to do - just check the provided guidebook - or sit back and enjoy the island breezes. The malasadas at Tex drive-in Honokaa are worth the drive! A month was super relaxing and laid-back but at the same time too short. We could have stayed! Friends who visited were impressed and are planning to come back with their family."

  • Excellent experience and beautiful condo!!!

    "Aloha Greg! We had an absolutely wonderful experience staying at your condo. The view of the ocean is exactly as depicted in your photos. The bedroom and bathrooms were very clean and decorated beautifully. The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked with essentials. For us, the wifi connectivity was a big hit as we still had to do a little work while vacationing. We would recommend this condo to anyone who's looking for an excellent place to vacation. Thanks for an awesome experience."
