  • 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!)"

  • We would stay here again!

    "We stayed at the House of the Dancing Turtles for 9 days around Christmas. We had a great time and would stay there again for sure. The gated community is lovely and all of the houses in the neighborhood look to be well cared for, including this one. This property is very private; when you sit on the back lanai or use the lagoon, you will not see a neighbor and will feel like it is your slice of paradise. The back lanai is shaded and cool even during the heat of the day, and is a great place to sit with a cup of coffee during rain (because it does rain on this part of the island). The landscaping is jungle-like and lush. The kitchen has a coffee pot, microwave, stove, oven, rice cooker, toaster, and just about every pan, dish, gadget, or utensil you need to cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner there (which we did). We made a fantastic batch of lemon squares using lemons from the yard, which the kids got a kick out of. The laundry room/office makes checking email and doing occasional work easy and the Wi-Fi was reliable. We were able to watch our football team play because they have Dish satellite service. We did use the ohana which has a separate porch overlooking the lagoon and a small kitchen which gave those who slept there privacy. And the lagoon was amazing. We bought floating inflatable chairs with cup holders at the KTA grocery store and spent a lot of time just floating around there and watching the small fish and listening to the birds. The lagoon is deep and shady on one end and shallow and sunny on the other. It is the most lush and amazing back yard I have ever seen and we felt privileged to be able to use it. I had a lot of questions prior to our trip, and the manager answered all of them with patience and thoroughness, and we found her answers to be accurate and honest. This was our first VRBO rental and it far exceeded our expectations."

  • A great stay!

    "This house was so spacious and well equipped. It was evident that thought was put into little details that would make the stay that much nicer. The master suite was huge. It was a really easy walk to the tide pools which had beautiful coral and fish. We would love to come back again."
