We bought our condo as a second home in 1999. The condo was advertised as having a Million Dollar view and we were not disappointed. We completely remodeled the unit taking everything down to the bare walls. My wife decorated it in the Hawaiiana theme and made it feel like our home away from home. A new Kitchen and a glass block shower was added in 2001 The elevation of the condo kept the climate moderate without the heat and dampness of the shore area. But we still have the romantic sunsets over the Pacific and Maui in the distance.
Directly in front of us, 6 miles to the beach, are the beautiful beaches on Anaehoomalu Bay. There are also The Queens and Kings shopping Malls with unique shops and restaurants for all tastes. As you move North you can visit Hawi a town which has kept a little bit of the old Hawaii of the early 20th century. Also the birth place of King Kamehameha. Heading down to the lowlands from Hawi you come upon the Parker Ranch one of the biggest Black Angus Ranches in the U.S.; and that's right behind our Condo. So not only do you feel that your in Hawaii, it also feels like Texas. The word for Cowboy in Hawaii is Paniolo. So you have the best of both worlds and that's why I love the Big Island and our location. And if you are there in the Winter months and look out the bedroom window you can see snow on Moauna Kea and sometimes snow on Mauna Loa, but you need to be on the Golf Course for that one!
We have had many great comments from satisfied customers in the past and we are sure that if you rent our unit you will also be added to our list of returnees. so Mahalo and Aloha for now and hope to hear from you very soon. Ben and Joyce

Bought house for a second home and converted it to a rental around 2005 approx. It was advertised as a Million dollar view on the village golf course. And it is at the 1000+ ft level, where it is cool and not hot and damp.
A Beautiful and romantic view during the day and an awesome view of the Milky Way from the Lanai. Golfing and Beautiful beaches, shopping malls and easy access to Kona, Waimea , Honokaa and Hilo. The Village Supermarket has a wide variety of island foods. And the people are friendly and helpful. One big happy family.
