Beautiful and private oceanview home
This private home was the best part of our 10 day Hawaii vacation, wish we stayed here more than 8 nights. First 2 restless grueling nights were at a Honolulu -Waikiki hotel, that was not a vacation, crowds, noise, small space.
My two college-age children traveled with my husband and I to celebrate 20th Anniversary. The kids loved having their own room, closet, dresser, and bathroom plus a view of the ocean. The listing was accurate and all amenities were there plus additional bonuses of soaps, shampoos, kitchen extras, travel guides, maps and re-usable grocery bags.
My family loved the private and country location of this home. You will have to drive a couple miles to the beaches....we enjoyed snorkeling, swimming, and kayaking all nearby. Saw dolphins, whales, fish, turtles, geckos, wild turkeys, and the nene. Please do not bother or swim with the dolphins...we just sat in our kayaks and watched them swim around us in Kealakekua Bay. Don't be the annoying kid following the dolphins around!! I would rather stay at this country home versus on a beach or crowded condo anyday, it was great going home to the quiet lanai and yard. The kids actually preferred to stay and read books or use Wi-Fi at the house a couple days instead of going to the beach---a truly relaxing vacation.
Drove to Hilo side....saw southern most tip of U.S., volcanoes, lava tubes, waterfalls, rainforest, mountains...so much to do. Captain Cook has best climate on whole island.
Stop at Costco for bulk groceries, kitchen has spices, condiments, napkins, teas....plus whatever previous person left. Take reusable grocery bags and cooler when you go shopping, no more plastic bags in HI. 3+ fresh local farm fruit stands within couple miles. We tried a dozen new fruits not available in Wisconsin. We attended church at St. John's and have never felt more welcomed...we each received knitted leis and met another vacationing family from Wisconsin.
Owner was easy to work with, no need to contact manager for anything since the property was clean and maintained. I have recommended this property to friends and family already!
