About Gloria Sawrey

Greg and Gloria are originally from Dana Point California, and have been on the island for 13 years. We started bringing our children here for family vacations more than 2o years ago, always planning to move here on each and every trip. Greg had a construction, remodeling and landscaping business on the mainland, and Gloria worked as an American Express Travel agent, specializing in Hawaii of course. Once we arrived here we started an new remodeling business which we just retired from. In 2012 we decided to make our home a vacation rental. So many friends and family members had suggested we do this over the last 8 years it felt like we were meant to.

Gloria Sawrey purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Gloria Sawrey chose Ninole

We have spent nine years building, remodeling, adding to and landscaping the property into the place it was always meant to be. It was a sad little shack when we first got here, and our slogan is from '' Humble Hovel'' to ''Heavenly Haven'' and we hope you will feel the same.

What makes this apartment unique

The natural beauty of this coast line is what makes living here so special. It sparkles like a jewel, with the azure blue ocean, the nearly hundreds of shades of verdant green, topped with an incredible opalescent sky, and a rainbow almost every day,

you just can't beat it.

TRANQUILITY

  • 5 of 5

The second we arrived, Gloria had a buffet style meal prepared and ready for us! The plantation was breathtaking and was exactly what my family needed for my parents 50th anniversary! I was very skeptical when I reserved this place online because of photo shop, however the plantation pictures didn't do it justice. This place was beautiful. Gloria and Greg are the best hosts you could ever ask for. They were beyond being hospitable and made sure our trip was memorable. They always checked to make sure where we were planning on visiting was open since there was a hurricane that diverted around us. They are very knowledgeable on all the sights that need to be visited. If you are planning on visiting the BIG ISLAND, you definitely need to stay at this place and if you don't, you will be sorry that you didn't. THANKS GLORIA AND GREG!

Family holiday

  • 5 of 5

My girls chose Hawaii as their destination and I chose the accommodation at Hibiscus Hale at Kololia's Garden. We had 3 adventurous weeks at this lovely, peaceful, well positioned place on the Big Island. Greg and Gloria were very helpful and spent endless time answering questions from both myself and my girls always being able to offer advice and descriptions of places of interest and things to see. After a huge delay due to missed flights we arrived one day late. late in the evening and the 'check in' process was quick and easy with no fuss and a promise to come back and see us in the morning. A car for exploring is a must however the location is excellent with lovely gardens, a pool my girls made good use of and lovely view. The description given is accurate and the photos do not do it justice. We would happily recommend this to friends and family.

Family retreat

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was perfect for my family and extended family to co-vacation in Hilo. There was plenty of space, amenities and beautiful nature in every corner. It was only a short distant to town but far enough away to feel private and secluded in our own retreat. The owners were hospitable and very helpful.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a home to rent while visiting Hilo, this is it! We recently stayed at Kololia's during our Merrie Monarch Hula Festival trip in April. My family and I enjoyed the property from Wednesday through Sunday. The owners are absolutely wonderful! When we arrived, they gave us a tour of the house and property and made "check-in" hassle free. We were not encumbered with lots of paper work to complete. Instead, one, simple form was it. This allowed us to enjoy the home right away. The inside was decorated with Hawaiian prints and fabrics that gave it a tropical paradise feel. Everything immaculate and clean, both inside and outside. All appliances and amenities were in great condition. We had everything we needed and more, right at our fingertips. Our family got right into the the pool, just a few feet away from the home. We also enjoyed the outdoor jacuzzi after a long night at the Merrie Monarch. The homeowners were very accommodating and had the jacuzzi perfectly set when we get home each night for our enjoyment. Each room of the house was decorated with its own special touches, comfortable beds, and all amenities (towels, bedding, pillows, linen, hangers, toiletries, multiple electrical outlets, night stands, dressers, ample closet space, etc). The grounds were exquisite, well manicured and filled with lovely flowers and fauna carefully planted for optimal growth and esthetic value. We could hear the river flowing next to the home and took a stroll down the walking path in the morning to see its beauty and splendor. This was by far the most relaxing and welcoming home we have ever stayed in. Thank you, Greg and Gloria, for making our trip so memorable! We can't wait to visit again next year!

Ocean View Plantation in Ninole, Hilo District, Big Island, Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

My daughter booked this chateau/country house. This was my first visit to the Hawaii Islands and this spectacular house was my first visual of Hawaii. This is a relaxing, tranquil, peaceful, beautiful place to stay. The owners were very considerate of our family's desire for quiet time, very knowledgeable about sights to see and the history of the islands, and assisted us in every way to make our vacation thoroughly enjoyable. The accommodations were everything we needed, wanted and more. The gardens were outstanding, the bedrooms spacious, the hot tub, pool and ocean view were the perfect way to unwind after the day was done. The morning sunrise and the evening sunsets made everyday perfect. We highly recommend this to anyone wanting a vacation where your soul, your mind, and your outlook on life is regenerated.

Wonderful home Near Hilo

  • 5 of 5

The owners were very hospitable and had anticipated every detail a traveler would need. The home is clean and designed and decorated well. The yard is like a botanical garden with a rushing stream , banana trees, papaya, etc. plus a jacuzzi and dipping pool. Even though it is 20 miles from Hilo, we found it centered for much sightseeing and and took a lot of day trips.
