What a lovely home in a quiet, residential area about twelve minutes from Pahoa. We could hear the surf and a nice park was a short three blocks away. My son loved fishing at the park and caught something every time he went out. The house was fully updated and each of the three rooms was comfortable for adults. We loved cooking in the kitchen and doing BBQ on the balcony. The owner called our first night to make sure everything was okay after we were 'checked in' by the local manager. We enjoyed bird-watching every morning and listening to the frogs in the evening. This home is about thirty five minutes from Hilo. During our stay, we saw almost the entire island including Kona, Hilo, Waipio Valley, the southern part of Hawaii, the Volcano National Park and many fabulous beaches. Highly recommend this home as we were there for 4 1/2 weeks which WASN'T long enough!
The house was in perfect condition, better than our own home! Sheets soft as silk, top of the line kitchen, convenient enough location. Nice, safe subdivision. Always comfortable with fans and window ventilation. Surrounded by nature. Would like to live there myself. No complaints.
Just spent two weeks at this rental. My wife and I needed nothing , this house has it all , fully loaded. A little out of the way from Hilo , a good 1/2 hr but when you get home from a day of touring this is a quiet piece of paradise. We saw the whole island , helicopter,zip line , volcano , golf and many other things to do , But this house was always worth heading home to. Thanks to Mike for renting us his house and thanks to Sue for her help and lovely personality . Hope to return to Hawaii again someday . Mahalo
This was our first time using VRBO. The owner was very friendly, answered any questions we had, and we were treated with Aloha when we arrived. We toured the Hilo side and while it was a little drive to and from the house. Very comfortable and spacious rental. We would look at the option of renting the place again if we travel to the Big Island again.
This house was very pleasant, clean, comfortable and well equipped for a family of 5 adults - just as shown in the photos. We did a lot of cooking and found the kitchen to be well stocked with all of the basics and many extras, including a rice cooker and crockpot. Beds were comfortable, towels and linens plentiful.
The house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood which we greatly appreciated and is a short walk to the ocean. It is quite a drive to get back and forth to the main highway, something to be aware of for those like us who were new to the Big Island and did daily trips up and down the east coast. After spending 6 days on each side of the island, we did find the Hilo side to be more interesting and laid back - but also definitely much wetter. Being there the last week in December, we experienced significant rain every day - including thunder and lighting storms.
We sincerely enjoyed our stay. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. It is also very elegantly decorated. The best part is that it is a short drive from the wonderful geothermal pools and the best snorkeling on Big Island at Kapoho pools.
Thank you very much for your hospitality.
