A Gem In Puna

  • 5 of 5
This home is so beautiful I wanted to live there! I honestly can not think of anything that could make it better. It was sparkling clean, the location in central to anything I like doing in East Hawaii. There is a large lanai that is private and a beautiful place to sit at night and hear the sounds of the rain forest. Bonnie and David are lovely people and will respect your privacy. This rental is a great value.

Great Place to Stay near Volcano National Park

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time saying at this rental. My wife, 12 year old son, and I stayed there for three nights. David and Bonnie were great hosts and they made all of us feel very welcome during our stay. They provided us with fresh cut papaya upon arrival and David even drilled some holes in a couple of coconuts during our stay so we could drink the coconut water. The second story apartment was very comfortable and easily met all of our needs. it was pleasant to spend the evening there after a long day exploring Volcano National Park, Hilo or the other attractions in the area. We then moved to another rental so we could spend some time on the northwest side of the island. After staying at David and Bonnie's place for a few days, the next place, although nice, was a disappointment in comparison. If we ever come back to the Big Island, we will happily stay there again.

CLEAN, charming, perfect

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in many VRBO rentals over the years, and this place takes top marks for cleanliness. It is also furnished with quality wooden furniture. It is snugly constructed, so we never had any problems with insects (unlike some other rentals in the islands). The bed is also very comfortable, and linens are high quality. There is plenty of space in the bathroom for all of your toiletries.

There were charming touches, such as fresh flowers and fruit, that aren't really captured in the photos. You also might not realize that the house really is a country house, and you will pass through gorgeous scenery every time you drive to and from it.

Bonnie and David were very helpful and friendly, but never intrusive.

So, this is a perfect spot for a couple, possibly with a child. The apartment is one flight up, so must be able-bodied. And it is charming, but not large enough or with the types of doors (bathroom and bedroom have frosted glass sliding doors) that allow for the privacy you might want if you're traveling with "just a friend".

We will certainly stay again next time we go to the Big Island. Unfortunately, there was no accessible surface lava flow during our visit, but we will be keeping an eye out for the reports! If you like hiking, this is an amazing spot. Take advantage of jet lag to get up early and do the Kilauea Iki crater hike. We were utterly amazed to walk across ground that was quite literally a lake of lava in 1959.

Very accomodating

  • 5 of 5
This rental was wonderfully decorated and excellently equipped with items to help make our stay on the big island more enjoyable. We traveled around the entire island from 8 am to 8 pm each night, and were allowed our privacy after check-in. The location is great for the southside of the island and Volcanoes National Park, and is still close to Hilo and the falls (Akaka and Rainbow). We found the dining recommendations, towels, and umbrellas as very useful on our stay and would highly recommend this rental to others.

Great location, Beautiful inside and out!

  • 5 of 5
David and Bonnie were great hosts! We loved our 2 nights in this home!!! We lived the sounds of the frogs at night! We also loved the fresh open air and the beautiful landscaping! This was perfect for us. While here we explored the Hilo sights and surrounding area waterfalls and beaches. We also spent a day hiking through the amazing volcano and seeing the glow at night! The location of this property have us the best opportunity to see and do everything we wanted to do on this side of the island!
Also the fresh fruit and all the amenities that were available were awesome!! Thank you Dave and Bonnie for making our anniversary
Trip the most memorable one yet!!!

We vacationed for 15 days and found this rental to be the nicest and still reasonably priced. David and Bonnie were wonderful hosts, the property gorgeous and convenient, and the bed was extremely comfortable. Everything we could have needed from spices to salad dressing to aloe was provided. I am recommending this rental to everyone I know who is traveling to southern Hawaii.
