  • Cozy Ohana, kind hosts made it a most memorable experience!

    "New to the Big Island, our stay in this studio truly exceeded our expectations!! Heath and his wife are generous and thoughtful. They provided us the privacy and space we needed, but were always available if we had any questions. They offered a wealth of information, helpful to us as a family in transition of moving here. Their beautiful property and charming Ohana is well equipped with amenities. It has all the comforts of "home" after a full day's adventures. Located in the safe and tranquil subdivision of Leilani Estates, we enjoyed walks to the community park and a short drive to the the local public pool. There's a nice BBQ on the private lanai where we grilled out several evenings. Denise offered us beach toys, floaties, and life vests for our young children and recommended Okenehakeha (which is now one of our favorite spots!). And...ummm, the delicious sweet papayas from their trees! We loved having our windows opened nightly and falling asleep to the sounds of the coqui. THANK YOU Heath and Denise for your kindness. We appreciate you welcoming us not only into your home as guests, but also in your lives as friends! We're happy to have met your adorable children and sweet family! We will MOST DEFINITELY recommend friends and family to stay with you!! Warmest Mahalo, Trinh & Eugene Bass (and the twins!)"

  • Oceanfront beauty

    "Absolutely loved this house. It had everything we needed. This house sits right on the ocean so we spent many hours watching the surf roll in. We were thrilled to see turtles playing on the surf. The bedroom we chose to stay in was oceanfront so watching the sun come up was a treat. Would definitely recommend this house to our friends."

  • 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."

  • Lovely cottage near Kalapana

    "My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Hale Haumea cottage. Diane, the owner, was very helpful & timely in answering our questions during the booking process & called us the first morning after our arrival at the cottage to make sure all of our needs were met. The cottage was nicely furnished. All floors are tiled, including the bedroom, and I experienced no problems with my allergies or asthma while staying at the cottage. The bed linens and pillows smelled amazingly fresh with no mustiness. The bed was extremely comfortable & mattress in excellent condition. There is an air conditioner for the bedroom, which we used each night as I have a low tolerance for humidity. The A/C worked well and cooled the bedroom down after about 2 hours. The bathroom has a tiled tub/shower surround & linen closet, furnished with an adequate supply of hand, bath, and beach towels. There were only 4 small wash cloths, however, so I might suggest that Diane purchase a few more of these (or if you have a longer stay at the cottage to pack your own). The kitchen is nicely furnished with all appliances (refrigerator, microwave, toaster oven, dishwasher) and has a beautiful set of stoneware dishes (tropical design). The only items missing were a pizza pan and dish cloths. (We popped a frozen pizza in the oven one night and had to use a round iron griddle to pull it out of the oven.) There is a sponge for washing dishes and wiping counters, but Diane might consider adding a couple of dish cloths. We had no problem with ants during our stay and kept all of our food in the refrigerator, including any open cereal or snacks. We did have visits from several friendly lizards (geckos), but they were very timid & kept there distance from us. On our last night of our visit, we did have about 20 small flying beetles congregate on the ceiling near the lights. Not sure how they found their way into the cottage as we did not have them the five previous nights. We found the vacuum in the closet in the kitchen & the beetles were quickly sucked up with no additional ones found the next morning. We ate at Kaleo's Bar and Grill in Pahoa and had an excellent meal with excellent service. Huge pancakes at the Hawaiian Style Cafe in Hilo (two 10" pancakes - ask for a 1/2 order). Enjoyed Volcanoes Nat. Park, Waipio Valley Lookout, Lava Tree State Park, Mauna Kea Summit, Rainbow Falls, Coconut Island, and the Liliokalani Gardens in Hilo. 45 min. drive from Hilo to cottage."
