  • Quiet, Friendly & Centrally Located

    "I stayed here for 4 nights during a writing/vacation trip to the Big Island. It was wonderful. I stayed in a downstairs unit that had tons of windows, which provided plenty of natural light and fresh air. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything I needed to make my own meals. The bed was comfy with lots of pillows, & there was a ton of closet/storage space. The unit was clean & surprisingly spacious for a studio-style set up. The property location was perfect. 10 minute drive from the airport. The house is up on the mountain & in the clouds, but I was down at the beach & in the sun (weather varies dramatically here, even within a couple of miles) in less than 10 minutes. This is something to consider, because it's cooler up on the mountain & may make for more comfortable sleeping after a long, hot day at the beach. The house is in a quiet, calm, tropical residential neighborhood. It's a 4 minute drive up the mountain to a well-stocked neighborhood grocery store called Matsuyama Food Mart. The store has some decent carry out food--pizza & Hawaiian-Asian cuisine if you don't feel like cooking. The larger chain grocery stores like Safeway are a 15-20 minute drive down the mountain. Groceries are expensive here, & I didn't find the prices at a place like Safeway much different than those at Matsuyama's. There were considerate touches from Della that made my stay even better: beautiful leis & a tropical bouquet to greet me; tons of fresh clean towels; fresh papaya & cherries from trees just outside the door; snorkeling & beach equipment for free (warning: test the snorkeling equipment before using in the ocean. I found a lot of missing or broken parts from past guest use/abuse); & farm fresh eggs from Della's chicken coup. The other folks staying on the property were quiet, considerate & friendly. I was a young woman traveling alone & felt completely safe. The whole place was quiet by 10pm & the other guests/tenants were up and moving by about 6am (it was hard to sleep past this time because of this, so just be aware if you're a night owl). Overall, I would highly recommend this place!!"

  • Beautiful, private retreat from reality

    "This property is exceptionally well-maintained with wonderful amenities. The beach gear was a great plus and the air conditioning in the bedroom was perfect to help us nod off to sleep. It is wonderfully secluded but with quick access to a main highway. The view is brilliant and the sunsets stunning. Five isn't enough stars."

  • Elegant Condominium with Gorgeous View. We would gladly return.

    "All four of us were very happy with our stay. We could not have asked for better. The condo and property were spacious, bright, secure, quiet, and clean. The bbq area is covered which provides shade, it has picnic tables, a bathroom, and is adjacent to the pool. The pool was really nice and warm with long chairs, tables, chairs, and lighting at night. The condo was very well equipped and had ceiling fans in all the rooms. The beds were large and comfortable which made it easy to sleep well at night. The lanai is wide and lends itself well onto the condo. It was great to have our coffee in the morning watching the beach, boats, surfers, and the birds. Hearing them sign and listening to the palm trees rustling in the breeze. We did lots of snorkeling at the beach across from the condo. It was very convenient to be able to simply walk there with our equipment.The elevator is very conveniently located close to the parking space which made it easy to bring luggage, groceries, and other purchases to our condo. The manager of this condo is very responsive and addressed any questions/concerns with expediency. There are also on-site contact persons available to assist which is reassuring. We had a wonderful time and are very happy that we chose to stay at this beautiful condo."

  • Perfect Spot

    "I visited the Big Island for the first time with my two teenage daughters. We stayed here for a few nights and in a high-end resort in Waikola for a few nights. Hands down, they preferred this condo. They loved the condo itself, the community feel, the pool that felt pretty private, the view from the balcony, and the location. The street is a bit busy, but you can't hear it with doors closed or at night. We were close to town and a stellar snorkeling beach. It was great to have a "home" to come back to and the comforts of home so convenient. Also, we were there when a big storm was predicted (never materialized - thank goodness). Kevin was available and responsive when I asked him how I should prepare. Great property- great owner."
