I'm an avid golfer that enjoys sharing my home which is close to the best golf courses on the island. After spending most of my life in the northwest I found I love the peaceful Hawaiian lifestyle. My favorite beach is only minutes away. Please call with any questions and let me know if you have any special requests.

Rhiannon Bats purchased this villa in 2002

This was our dream home when we purchased Palm Villa in 2002 but I am now a widow so I decided to use it as a vacation rental and spend more time with my family back on the mainland. Our decision to buy in this location is that it's a great neighborhood at a comfy elevation with a lot of privacy and we have some of the best views in the area.

Close to the beach, golfing, boating, fishing, diving, snorkeling, surfing, relaxing, cool, quiet and private. Sit in the private hot tub and watch a beautiful sunset from your lanai or fix a special dinner in the gourmet kitchen. Almost everyone that visits me here says 'WOW' when they see it and the setting with unobstructed views is just amazing. Relax and enjoy the special comforts that we provide..

Beautiful, comfortable

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home for a family vacation with out two teens, and the house and gardens are just as lovely as the pictures show. Regarding practical matters, the home (although not new) is in excellent repair, very clean, the beds were super comfortable and the kitchen well-stocked. Extras like hand, dish and laundry soap, plastic wrap, foil and spices meant that we didn't have to make those purchases which was great. We really appreciated the beach towels, chairs, coolers and snorkel gear since we visited a new beach almost every day. Because the house is over 1,000 feet up the hill from the beach, it was a good 10 degrees cooler than the beach, and cool enough most nights that the comforter on the bed was a welcome necessity. The wood hot tub (2 person) and upper lanai were the most amazing places to watch the sun set, and we had dinner there almost every night we didn't eat out. We also liked being in a quiet neighborhood instead of in the middle of the resort/town bustle - we could easily get to town, but didn't have to be surrounded by activity 24/7

Rhia's book has a few of her favorites (all great!), but I'd recommend that anyone visiting the Big Island purchase "The Big Island Revealed" guidebook and iphone app (the app quickly maps the best route to each destination). For those who enjoy such food, we LOVED the Lotus Cafe (near the Kona airport), which had delicious organic thai food and gelato. If you go to Volcano National Park, take Chain of Craters road down to the ocean. An amazing drive, at the end of which you can see where the lava has overtaken the road. A final recommendation is the Hawaiian Tropical Botanical Garden just north of Hilo - 40 acres of awesome. My family humored me by visiting yet another garden, and was just as awestruck as I was by the incredibly varied natural beauty (and it must be said the talking parrot).

If I am fortunate enough to visit the Big Island again, I would absolutely want to stay at Rhia's; she's a great host and her home is beautiful.

Owner's Response: Dear Chris,
Thank you so much for your review. I'm happy to hear that you were pleased with everything. When I decided to make it a vacation rental I gave a lot of thought about what I would want if I was the renter. We rented many places over the years that were a disappointment so I had a good idea of what was needed to make it special. It seems to have worked out well as the feedback from my guests shows that all the extras make their visits much better.
I will be spending several days there myself this month to make sure everything is in good shape. I do this every few months so that if something needs some attention I am able to resolve it. It's my way of keeping things in tip top condition.
The places you wrote about visiting are all wonderful but the botanical garden on the scenic route close to Hilo is a place I go to often. I highly recommend it. Going fairly early on a Wednesday is fun as when finished it's only a short drive to Hilo where you can get a delicious lunch at Cafe Pesto and walk a block to the huge farmers market before heading back. It makes a fun day! I also highly recommend the book "Big Island Revealed".
Safe travels to you and your family!
Aloha, Rhia

Luxury! Romantic!!! Even better than pictures, really beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
We were travelling for 6 weeks on Big Island, Kauai and Maui, had very good rentals all the time, but this house was the best one! The minute you walk through the door you feel comfortable and at home. You walk upstairs and wow, it even gets better! Gorgeous master suite! Several lanais to chose from, the one upstairs with such a beautiful view! Very private, you won't notice your neighbours at all, tropical garden all around you. We absolutely loved sitting on the upper lanai, watching the sunset. We enjoyed it so much that we never went out in the evening but had all our meals on the lanai upstairs....The kitchen is fully equipped, everything you need is there, lots of different spices too. One thing we really liked about the house is the feeling that it is not just another soulless rental for somebody to make money from but a loved and lived in house. It makes such a difference if a house is cherished by the owner! The house is very clean too. It’s location is just perfect, low enough to avoid the clouds who build up in the evening towards the mountains and high enough to be nice and cool at night. You don’t need air conditioning at a location like this! The roof is uniquely designed to let the breeze flow gently and the temperature was just perfect. Roosters are a fact of life on the Hawaiian Islands, they wander around freely, sometimes they’re there and sometimes not…Dog barking was not an issue at all, neither is traffic noise, all you can hear are birds singing! Rhia is a really nice and lovely person, very helpful. Needless to say, we would not stay anywhere else on Big Island!! Why choose a hotel if you can have a gorgeous house like this!?! Thank you Rhia for sharing your house with us!

Owner's Response: Aloha and Mahalo of reviewing my property. It made me so happy to read your review and to know that you enjoyed your visit. I lived in the house for many years and loved it. It is so peaceful and serene. I spend a couple of weeks every few months in the house to do maintenance and make sure everything is the way I would want to find it if I had rented it for my holiday.
I look forward to having you return to our beautiful island again.
Aloha, Rhia

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5
My wife two sons 22 and 23 spent over two and one half weeks at Rhias lovely condo and it was a great base for our first trip to Big Island. The villa is exactly as in the picture and Rhia's information was very helpful. This villa was very private, very central to all activities and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would recomend this vrbo without hesitation.
Thanks Rhia!

Our Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The property is Quiet and beautiful with tropical flowers, palm trees and all the comforts we needed. Birds are singing all day long and we loved feeding them. The pictures don't show how nice it is both inside and out. It's so private we didn't even notice the neighboring properties. The gourmet kitchen was stocked with all of the spices and everything we needed. The master suite is gorgeous and the sunsets were amazing from the upstairs lanai hot tub. We found it a perfect location to go out to golf or to see the sights. The suggestions Rhia gave dinner and snorkeling were very helpful. Everything was there for our use including snorkel and beach equipment.
We hope to come back soon and enjoy this romantic retreat again soon. It has been our own little part of paradise for a short time and it was a perfect experience.
Thank you Rhia!

Rental review

  • 4 of 5
The property is beautiful and conveniently located to activities around Kona and the airport. The master suite is outstanding. Everything one may need is supplied including snorkel gear. The entire property was clean and well maintained. Owner very helpful and written information provided at the house. The only drawbacks are the second bedroom and bath are small for a second couple or two adults, also a lot of steps for elderly or physically challenged.

Owner's Response: Hi Judy,
Thank you for reviewing my property. I ask all interested guests to read the reviews and look at the pictures so that they know how the house is set up. The second bedroom is smaller as is shown in the pictures and has been mentioned in another review. The pictures also show the stairs and in the listing it says the property is not handicap accessible because of stairs. One of the nice things about it being higher than the parking area is that it allows for one of the best views in the area. The upstairs master bedroom and lanai are half of the entire villa and the views as well as the privacy are superb. I do hope you visit again and thank you so much.
Aloha, Rhia
