  • Gorgeous Setting

    "This house's location, perched on the cliff, was amazing. In a well-maintained neighborhood, it was a great spot to explore the eastern side of the Big Island from. Loved the wall of windows...the waves were mesmerizing. We ate out on the huge lanai when we had the chance, but never used the hot tub (too busy adventuring I guess). Didn't spot whales or dolphins, but turtles were a common sight feeding offshore. Sunrises were beautiful... Overall, the house was well taken care of. When we first walked in the house, we were met by lovely music that someone had thoughtfully turned on. A nice touch! The bathrooms in particular, seemed to be recently painted and updated. Very clean, except the blind over the kitchen sink. Mildew around window and on blinds. Upon entering the house for the first time, there was a noticeable mildew smell. This disappeared as soon as we opened the windows and aired it out. Except in the bedrooms....that carpet is somewhat musty. (Maybe yank that out next time you make improvements.) Loved the tall ceilings and ceiling fans too. Kitchen was adequate for our needs. A bit of a time with the gas stove at first. Initially one of the burners (front left) would stay on for about 30 seconds and then go out. Luckily I was standing right there, or we could have had an issue. It took about 5 times relighting it before it finally stayed on. Maybe something blocking the line? We did get a surprise one evening when the hot water ran out. Had run dishwasher, washing machine, and 4 showers over the course of the day. Unfortunately that last shower (late at night) was an ice cold one. Looked for a hot water heater, thinking maybe a pilot light had gone out (remembering stove earlier) but didn't find one. The next morning we looked on the roof, and sure enough, solar hot water! Evidently the cloudy days we experienced were not enough to supply what we needed. Luckily it was only that one day. The other days were sunny enough. But it would be nice if the house info had indicated solar so we would have a heads up. And no, we didn't call since it was late Saturday night and didn't want to disturb anyone for a non-emergency. :-) We enjoyed our stay here, and I only dinged one star off mainly because of the mildew and minor annoyances. A lovely place to stay!"

  • Gorgeous home and surrounding Gardens!!

    "We rented this home over the Thanksgiving holiday while visiting a family member at the University. The home is fully stocked with everything you need and grounds are beautiful! We even picked our own citrus out front and make fresh lemonade and made a beautiful bouquet for the Thanksgiving table. Melanie was wonderful to work with and even had great suggestions on where to eat out. Don't hesitate to rent this lovely property!"
