  • Lovely home, in a stunningly beautiful location...

    "Renewed spirit, indeed! This lovely home is comfortable, endearing, and located in a lush, well-kept neighborhood. We loved going for morning and evening walks, hopping around the lava rocks and marveling at the beauty of the tidepools. Sunrise over the tidepools was one of the most glorious sights I've ever seen. I fell in love with the sweet shy geckos that hang out here and there. One morning I thoughtfully pondered them, and googled all about geckos (the Internet is good here) while I drank local coffee from Hilo farmers market. (french press is in the cupboard). Great way to de-stress from the daily grind. :) The location of this home is well situated for exploring the east side of the big island. We also found several amazing farmers markets within 45 minutes from home base. We ate green papaya salad everywhere we went, so delicious! The very best was at the Sunday farmers market in Pahoa. It was made one salad at a time by a wonderful lady. Locals travel for miles just to get her green papaya salad, and as we all stood in a long but fairly quick line, we got to know one another, chatting, while all eyes were watching the harmony and precision of the salad preparations. It was worth the wait, I got 1+ spicy and it was TDF delicious! This was exactly what we needed, a great, beautiful, comfy spot to chill, on the days we felt like lazing about enjoying the immediate beauty, and a great home base for our island excursions. Mahalo, David and Nancy, for sharing and hosting this amazing place! ~ Kelly and Larissa"

  • Fabulous property, beautiful site - highly recommended.

    "We had a marvelous 5 nights at this gorgeous property. The setting is spectacular -- it’s literally right on a collection of ponds and inlets, with kayaking and snorkeling available literally at your feet. The property itself is beautiful and in excellent condition, filled with beautiful Indonesian wood furniture, and the setting is quite private. We were two families with teen children traveling together, and we had a marvelous time sitting on the beautiful balconies staring at the ocean, snorkeling in the pond, watching the puffer fish get fed, and taking excursions to nearby tide pools, farmer’s markets, towns, as well as venturing out for zip lining, and hiking in volcano national park. We divided our Big Island stay between this property and a hotel on the Kona side, and we loved the mixture of sights and experiences, but this property definitely won the ‘specialness’ award. The kitchen was equipped for all basic cooking needs, and there’s a nice outdoor grill which we put to use. The master suite is gorgeous. There are two other bedrooms upstairs that share a bathroom, one with a queen bed and one with twins. The bathroom they share is spacious, though has only one sink. Downstairs, there’s a separate room with twins, and a fully-plumbed outdoor bathroom (quite luxurious, though not fully waterproof in the rain, and to get there requires walking 20 feet outdoors). Wifi was a little slow (for all 8 of us) but that kept us from being tethered to our devices. The property was very clean, and there were plenty of towels and an assortment of snorkeling equipment to borrow (though for our group of 8, a couple more snorkels would have been a plus). The ceiling fans kept everything cool and comfortable There’s lots to do within a 30 minute drive, but depending on what you’re looking for, it could be a little remote -- there’s not anywhere to walk to to grab a coffee or a meal. The nearest town is Pahoa, about 15 minutes away, and Hilo is about another 25-30 minutes beyond that. But it’s a fabulous base for both exploring and for relaxing and enjoying the views and the water, and it’s a truly memorable, gorgeous property. Highly recommended!"

  • Relaxing vacation

    "I rented this home for 10 days for myself and my children (ages 13-29). My grandson was also there. He just turned 1. And my older brother. This was his first vacation and a beautiful one for him. We loved the flexibility everyone had to either relax inside, fish, snorkel, sun bathe or walk around to nearby areas. We did have to cross to the west side of the island for entertainment. It was a 2 hour drive to go to Kona for the luau and to snorkel at Capatain Cook's cove. Our hostess was on top of things. We stayed off our electronics almost the entire time--which speaks strongly of how satisfied everyone was. I have never felt so relaxed. Thank you!! Our only disappointment was the fact that there were no sandy beaches. Lava rock everywhere. The Rainbow waterfall and tropical botanical gardens were beautiful and close by."

  • Great property and had a great time!

    "The best part about the property is the lagoon which is warm to swim in and fairly good size with lots of fish to see. There are snorkeling gears on site so you don't even have to bring your own. Especially like the part that you can just get out of your room and jump into the water rather than having to pack your stuffs and drive all the way to the beach. There is also a public beach nearby if you want that although, most of the nice sandy beaches are on the Kona side of the island. I also want to give a big shout out to the property manager (Shawn) who is most helpful in providing us with general information and interesting activities in the area. He arranged for a personal chef (also named Shawn) to come prepare dinner at the house and the food is definitely top class (even better than the restaurants we visited at Hilo). Lastly, there are other activities you can do that are not too far from the property including Lava boat tour (10 minutes away) and the Volcano national park (about 1 hour away). Definitely a most memorable trip for our family! William"
