  • Girl Scout Getaway

    "This was our first vacation rental, so we didn't really know what to expect. Full-disclosure, we had a Negative Nancy as a chaperone and the water pressure was a point of contention for her. I probably should have remembered all the reviews and better briefed our group before we got there! That being said, the majority of our group thought the house was lovely, and we didn't want to leave. The location was remote enough to make us feel like we were truly getting away from everything, and forced our girls to think about what the needed to do/get in town each day (7-11 isn't right around the corner like it is at home), but still reasonable to get out and see the island. A few of our activities were out of Keauhou Bay, making for some early mornings to get over there, but it was nice to have such a serene location to come back to each night. We had a group of 7, and there was ample room for all of us and if I were travelling to the Big Island with a group of 5+, I would stay here again. One of our chaperones left a detailed list of our activities in the journal, but be sure to head the 2 blocks down for a sunrise--the view from the master bedroom balcony, while lovely, does not do it justice. Our troop made some great memories on this trip and it was delightful to have them all in one place enjoying each other's company."

  • Gorgeous Home in Excellent Location

    "This little apartment on top of Dave and Bonnie's home is gorgeous, relaxing, quiet, and in a great location! I was referred to this rental by a family member that stayed here a couple years ago. This rental property was perfect for our three night stay on the Eastern side of the Island. It is 20 minutes from the Volcano National Park and 30 minutes from Hilo. The property was spotless and had all the amenities we needed. The kitchen was also stocked with condiments, spices, pots, pans, water, etc. The fresh fruit was amazing and gorgeous fresh flowers decorated the apartment. We especially enjoyed eating dinner on the lanai and just relaxing in the rainforest/jungle atmosphere. The directions Dave gave us were perfect and our GPS worked as well to find the location. Thank you so much Dave and Bonnie! We will definitely be staying here again when we come back to the Island!"

  • Perfect for a quiet get away!

    "Stayed at the cottage overnight after a hike to see the lava flow. Quiet hidden among the trees the cottage was the perfect place after a long hike. The cottage was clean well equipped for our needs. The cottage is priced well without having over the top cleaning fees. Definitely would recommend to any couple that needs a quiet place to stay on the east side of Hawaii to visit here."

  • Serene, Clean and Relaxing

    "Loved the home. Even more beautiful in person. Very clean and beautifully decorated. Very safe and secure in nice neighborhood with lots of privacy. Everything in working order. Pool was terrific. LOVED LOVED LOVED the geckos and frogs. Woke up every morning to birds chirping and the sounds of the ocean. Opened the french doors and enjoyed mimosa on patio. Rode out hurricane Madeline with no worries at all. Cory was there to help in the event I needed anything and very responsive to communication. Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us. Would definitely return for another trip."
