Guestbook comments from the owner
Thanks for the snorkeling and boogie boarding gear, we did not have to rent a thing. We also really enjoyed all the fruit on the property, esp. the bananas, mangos, and papaya. FYI, in the winter the best place to see fish in relatively calm waters is Kalalu'u. There is sand there to and shade! P.S. Don't forget to try all the Kona Coffee!

Marci and I(Chuck) moved here from Seattle and are crazy about living here, no thought of what clothes to wear, always shorts and flipflops! 80+ degree ocean water, It just doesn't get any better!

owner/property manager purchased this house in 2007

We love being close to the water for swimming, snorkeling, and sunning. Also we are down in 'Old Hawaii' and far from the hustle and bustle of more upscale or congested areas.

There is nothing like picking your own fruit for breakfast, with a 365 day growing season! We Live in the Area, so if you need anything just call us!

The house is ideally located, lots of sun in the spring and close to the ocean, where we can snorkel. We definitely enjoyed it wholeheartedly. My kids think this was their best vacation and I have to include their experience in this house. We got to enjoy the very unique backyard where all sorts tropical fruit trees are. Eating apple bananas, soursop just harvested was quite an experience. It is not hard to tell that the owners have put a lot of thoughts into the house, from body boards to bikes, from sandwich bags to hand towels. Very convenient! I have told a couple of my friends who are interested in visiting big island next time, I am sure they will be as fulfilled as we were. Highly recommended.

SUPER FAMILY GET-AWAY, WITH ALL SORTS OF EXTRAS!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Marci's Tropical Dream from March 18-24, 2014, and couldn't be more pleased. We brought 10 people in all, mostly family but also a family friend/couple. Our party included two married couples, two teenaged children from one of the couples, two seniors (the teens' grandmothers on both sides of the family, one of whom was in a wheelchair), and two additional single women. For two dinners, we were joined by additional family members who live on the island as well. The house easily accommodated all of us. The house was clean and comfortable, and in a great location. The kitchen came fully equipped, including a nice blender perfect for making tropical smoothies and blended drinks. The oven, toaster oven, microwave, dish washer, coffee maker, and large refrigerator/freezer met our needs well. The bedding was clean, high-quality, and comfortable. The house included both bath and beach towels, with plenty to go around. An added bonus is the variety of beach gear (snorkels, fins, boogie boards). We didn't use the bicycles, but they were a nice touch. The owners were wonderfully accommodating. We recommend this property highly.

HOW DID WE GET SO LUCKY TO FIND THIS HOUSE FOR OUR VACATION?

  • 5 of 5
This is the place, stop looking for and waisting your time. It is awesome!
It seems to be in jungle, but same time next to the highway. The garden... to see how are growing the plants and fruits and geckos and all these exciting sounds. We made a recording of these and now in home it is possible to jump right back.
In this house, there is everything you need and even more, nothing is missing. And the photos represent it very well. The owners have furnished all like for home not for just rental house, you can feel the touch of creators. They always are willing to help and suggest and more, we were surrounded from their warm alohas.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
I was fortunate enough to have been able to spend 1 month at Marci's Tropical Dream on the Big Island of Hawaii. Needless to say it was a vacation I will never forget. Chuck and Marci exemplify the meaning of aloha and made sure I was comfortable during my stay. They were able to make recommendations on places to go and things to do as well as restaurants to try. Absolutely everything I could have asked for was provided for me including books, movies, snorkel gear, boogie boards, coolers etc. This home is very spacious and clean and the geckos are friendly. It truly was a home away from home and I will miss it greatly. Aloha!

WONDERFUL PLACE OF RESPITE AND RELAXATION WITH FRESH FRUIT AND WARM ALOHA

  • 5 of 5
This was my second stay at Marci's Tropical Dream House, and I will most definitely return again!
I really love this house. Chuck and Marcy have thoughtfully provided all the little extras to live comfortably. I picked this place because of its proximity to my beloved Honaunau Bay, I returned because Chuck and Marcy's Aloha Spirit and Eco-Consciousness aligns with my own. They are very careful, for instance, to only use non-toxic cleaners in the house, and small details like the solar panels and the composter in the yard show me that they really do care about the environment as a whole.
The house itself is beautifully decorated and filled with antiques, artwork, and plenty of charm. I always feel quite relaxed and at home here, and cannot wait to return again!!! Highly Recommended!
