Hawaii Dream No Ka 'Oi!

Hawaii Dream No Ka 'Oi!
  • 5 of 5
What a great place. It truly is as lovely as it looks on the web site! Private, spacious, quiet, spotlessly clean...it felt like home. Well, home with an outstanding view of the ocean, warm tropical tradewinds and the sound of waves crashing on the rocks lulling you to sleep each night. Shelly and Jeff were readily available to attend to any requests we had. A friend from Oahu joined my husband and I and the additional studio was perfect. A great space for 2 couples or small family. Everything was provided--beach towels, full kitchen, BBQ, stereo, snorkeling equipment, even a fishing pole by request! The hot tub was wonderful. Some of the best snorkeling on Big Island, volcano, Hilo, Black Sand Beach (there's a new one), thermal pools--all a short drive. I especially liked watching the fishermen casting their lighted lures in the moonlight. Don't miss the Sunday farmers' market down the street! I used to live in Hilo and love this side of the island so I'm biased, but we really didn't want to leave this house. Turtle and whale watching is addictive!

Owner's Response: Thank you Joyce and Larry! We love sharing our piece of Paradise and the comments in the guest book in the rental is a clear indication of how much everyone loves the property, especially all our return guests year after year.

Aloha and Mahalo nui loa!

Favorite Accommodations in HI!

  • 5 of 5
When we walked into My Hawaii Dream, my husband and I were both concerned...it was very warm and muggy...and no A/C. My husband even asked if there was a way to get out of our commitment (I had made all of the accommodation arrangements...and I never noticed there was no AC). Interesting how at the end of the stay I asked him if he would take an air conditioned property in town over My Hawaii Dream and he said "Never!". We ended up loving this place so much. The lack of A/C only impacted us a couple of times for less than an hour...once the windows were all open and the fan was going, it was very comfortable...and this was during a pretty warm spell Keaau was experiencing. The property is a once in a lifetime experience...enjoying sunrise with a cup of coffee sitting on the lava overlooking the ocean...amazing or enjoying a glass of wine in the evening before the sunsets...so peaceful. I even really enjoyed the coqui frogs...I missed their singing when we moved on to Maui. (and I wouldn't have used the AC at night even if we had it...you would miss the frogs and waves!) . I debated between a 5 star and a 4 star for our rating...and gave the 5 star mainly because we did love this place...and it has everything you need...including some condiments, spices, sugar, etc. I cooked most of our meals in the bungalow and it was great. (we went to a corporate condo in Maui that was lovely...but barren...I never cooked as it would have been too expensive to buy everything you needed to prepare a meal...we bought frozen and had PB&Js instead...not so with My Hawaii Dream!). It was also very clean and the location was pretty convenient to all the things we wanted to do. Also, for the price, the condition and amenities are very good. The bungalow is not high end, but it was perfect for us. My only recommendations would be to add a pancake turner and maybe another small fan for the kitchen. But these are just trivial things over the natural beauty of this place. Also, Shelley was a dream to work with. I highly recommend this little piece of paradise! For the area...I recommend allowing 2 days for visiting Volcanoes National Park if you want to do any hikes or have time to listen to some of the ranger directed programs. This is a great place...and only about 40-45 minutes away. Hilo is a cute town, Puka Puka is a great hole in the wall diner. We also went to the farmer's market on Sunday...it was great! We went to Pahoa...had a nice dinner at Kaleos.

Owner's Response: Aloha Roberta and thank you for your comments on our property here on the the Big Island of Hawaii. So sorry to hear about the pancake turner not being there - there was one at one time and have no idea where it dieappeared to. When something needs fixing or is missing we appreciate our renters letting us know, hopefully when it first comes up so we can take care of it right away. We're happy you enjoyed your stay with us and yes, we're in a heat spell right now with no rain this past month. A/C is almost always never an issue with our typical trade winds that come off the ocean right there.

Mahalo and Aloha!

A Stay At Ocean's Edge

A Stay At Ocean's Edge
  • 5 of 5
This house is the perfect place to come for peace, privacy, and natural beauty. Imagine waking up in the morning and walking to the edge of the ocean where there are sheets of lava! The lava is centuries old, and one can see the striations which indicate different layers. It's as fascinating as the roaring waves!
The kitchen will satisfy any cook, as it is unusually well-equipped for a vacation home. The barbecue is beautiful! The entire home is spotless, but user-friendly and comfortable. It's a summer treat to eat out in the lanai, listening to the waves. The extensive vegetation all around the property ensures complete privacy. We did not use the hot tub since the hot, muggy weather we experienced felt as if we were living in one, so cannot comment.
The hosts are fun and friendly, and completely respect one's privacy. They are cooperative and easy to deal with while setting up the rental.

Perfect Hawaiian getaway

  • 5 of 5
Great location. Close to conveniences and activities but far enough away to feel secluded. It was about a 10 minute drive into Keaau and a 25 minute drive into Hilo. The property was the perfect spot to enjoy a sunrise and walk along the lava cliffs or just lay in the hammock under the coconut trees. The main house was perfect for our family of 4. It was well stocked with everything needed for preparing meals and had lots of books to enjoy. There was also beach gear like boogie boards, mats, coolers and towels that we made great use of. The bed was very comfy. The sofa bed in the living room was fine for our 2 small kids but would probably be a little uncomfortable for adults. Shelley and Jeff provided very easy and convenient directions and lots of information and suggestions on things to do in the area. The entire process from initial email contact to stepping into the door was very smooth. Shelley was very responsive and accommodating. I have stayed at a number of vacation rentals in Hawaii over the years and this one is my new favorite.

A wonderful place to relax and rejuvenate!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful property! We loved sitting on the lanai watching the sun come up while having coffee and listening to the ocean.

I would encourage anyone planning a visit to the big island to try and book My Hawaii Dream, it truly is a dreamy place to stay. We are in the process of booking a 2nd visit.

Unforgettable Stay

  • 5 of 5
We have to say this trip went down as one of our favorite ones we have had in awhile. It is over 2 years later and we still talk about the great times we had at The Hawaii Dream house. (Sorry you two, we had submitted a review but came back and saw it never posted..??) Anyway, the location of the property is just stunning. If you want to be where all of the buzz is then this place is not for you. If you want some privacy and a home with a cool volcano rock path to the ocean about 30 steps away then this is it. Trust us we have stayed in villas 2-3 times a year for the last 15 years in the Caribbean and still this Home is still top on our list. Every morning we would brew a pot of coffee and walk down to the ocean and watch the sun rise (not tough to do since we are on East Coast time). We LOVED... the BBQ, hammock, whales gong by, green sand beach, going to the volcano park, going to downtown Hilo with it's GREAT outdoor market, seeing the sea turtles, eating FRESH tuna (on BBQ), swimming in hot springs, going to my first luau, and so much more. The home even has a hot tub and I said "whatever, It is Hawaii I will not be using it" Well I/we were in it almost every night after coming back from a day of sightseeing.

Truth be known that there were a few small issues(hot tub was not staying hot enough, unusual traffic down road near the home...most likely addressed by now)....However, Jeff and Shelley addressed them right away. They are close by, but you will NEVER see them unless YOU want to talk to them or to ask questions. They totally respect your privacy.

All in all, for the price this small home is a 10. We would not hesitate to return tomorrow if we could.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you have thought of us recently to even think of posting a review 2 years after the fact. Over the years we have many guests return because they love the location, the property and just the atmosphere our little "Dream" has. Keep in mind - returning guests do get discounts on the rental amount. Mahalo for the lovely review and Aloha!

Keaau is a small town just outside of Hilo town, about a 15 minute or so drive. Our property is located in Hawaiian Paradise Park subdivision at the bottom on the ocean where our weather surpasses Hilo by far. 1/2 the amount of rainfall as Hilo, sunny days with some evening showers to keep everything green and beautiful and nice trade winds off the ocean for the perfect temperature averaging 80 degrees daytime. We're rural but not secluded here, close to the new volcano entrance, hot ponds and the turn of the century Pahoa Village yet easy access to Hilo too. Lots of trails and areas to explore without the hoards of tourists. Very old Hawaiian feel here.
