The view made it hard to leave the house!

  • 5 of 5
The house had everything we needed...you only need to bring your groceries. We cooked in daily - including using the BBQ. The kitchen is well appointed. The washer and dryer - extremely convenient.The bathrooms are HUGE. The beds were comfy, plenty of pillows...again, just like the title, hard to find a reason to leave each morning for exploring!! We woke every morning to the sound of crashing waves against the cliff and a gorgeous sunrise. Because you never know where the day will take you, keep boogie boards, water shoes, snorkel equipment, and plenty of towels loaded in trunk of the car---get a map and just go. It really is the best way to do it. *Beach lifeguards at Honoli'i Beach are sometimes available for surf lessons....super nice, some work with kids in their Junior Lifeguard program....

Little paradise on Paradise Road!

  • 5 of 5
This house met and surpassed our expectation. The pictures do not do enough justice. It was a very serene location and we had an amazing time with our family there. Joanie had done an excellent job of managing the property and everything was in place when we arrived. If you have the opportunity to stay here, please grab it!

A Perfect Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
You'd be hard-pressed to find a better-equipped, more nicely furnished, or better-maintained vacation home. Our two weeks here were intended to be a quiet interlude in hectic lives, and we could not have picked a more perfect place. The house is located just 17 miles from Hilo in a very quiet neighborhood, and, unlike the Kona side of the Big Island, traffic here is light, people are friendly and polite, and life is relatively slow. Yet you are only a couple of hours from any point on the island. The owners are to be complimented for providing every convenience imaginable; for example, my wife is a gourmet cook and she was thrilled with the kitchen and its amenities. It was like stepping into our own home. Kudos also to the local property management team. The home is spotless, by far the best we've ever encountered, and they were extremely helpful throughout arranging the rental. They even turned on the lights for our late arrival! Thanks for the warm and thoughtful welcome we received!

Perfect for the adventurous.

  • 5 of 5
First let's talk about the house. Unbelievably clean. Looks and feels like a new home. Upgrades throughout the house. You will love the lighting and how well it is decorated. The pictures can't fully describe the feel, sound, and smell of the Pacific. What a view! While it was only my wife and me for the trip, a family vacation would fit well into this home. The location is close to much of what you will want to see. Volcanoes Park, Mauna Kea, South Point, The Green and Black sand beaches, even Saddle Road was great. Several great local restaurants in Hilo to enjoy. And yes, it rains on the Hilo side of the island. We had rain everyday, but it was quick passing light showers then back to sun. Don't let the talk of rain run you to the other side of the island. This side is where the action is. You will love this house. It is as clean and well kept as any I have ever stayed in. Enjoy!

Quality home with outstanding views.

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this home is high end- the furnishings, appliances and fixtures- and the kitchen is outfitted with virtually everything one might need. It is very comfortable to relax in and the ocean views are incredible. When you are standing at the kitchen island you feel like you are on the bow of a ship. With the binoculars in the house we were able to view breaching whales in the distance. The two main bedrooms on the ground floor face the ocean, so one goes to sleep with the sound of pounding surf. There is a third bedroom off the living room upstairs with bunk beds suitable for children. The only negative I would cite is the location. You have to drive to a beach since the house is on a cliff. Going to Hilo is about a 25 minute drive. There are lots of places to explore in the surrounding area, but the house is so nice that it is great to just hang out. I will add that the house was exceptionally clean and well maintained.

Perfect Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5
This house was perfect for our family. Great location, with the waves crashing over the cliffs. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals, and the appliances were all new and worked well. Loved the dual master bathrooms and walk-in closets! the beach towels and beach bags came in handy, as well as the cooler with ice packs. Even the neighbor walking by was friendly. Safe and quiet neighborhood. Convenient location for all activites on the Hilo side of the island. We will be planning on staying here our next visit to the Big Island.
