Very relaxing and comfortable place

  • 5 of 5
We had a very pleasant time at this house overlooking the Laupahoehoe Point. Everything about the place was ideal... location was great (far enough from Hilo, but close enough), views and weather were perfect, has a complete kitchen, wireless internet (that was a pleasant surprise), cable TV, comfortable bedrooms, a really sweet lanai overlooking the ocean. The little park down at the point has an interesting history and a dynamic relationship with the ocean.

We made day-trips to the volcano, to the numerous waterfalls nearby, and to several beaches and local parks.

We made dinner each night in the kitchen, and we felt right at home. I would highly recommend this place to families who are looking to avoid the expense and general hassle of hotel-living.

Beautiful Home, perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and our 3 young adult children loved this home. We were blessed to be able to call this place home during the 2 1/2 weeks we were on the Big Island. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. The home was well maintained and clean. The bed comfortable, and the linens of excellent quality. The kitchen, bathrooms and laundry room were all well-stocked with everything we needed. The only thing lacking was a dishwasher. More than enough room for all of us.

The view is incredible. We checked "the point" first thing every morning with our first cup of coffee on the large lanai. Our first morning there was a beautiful rainbow just off the coast. This was just the first of many that we enjoyed. The sliding glass doors and windows really let you enjoy the view from any room. Simply beautiful!

The location is excellent. Only 1/2 hour drive to Hilo and about the same to Waimea. The Kona side and sandy beaches only 1 1/2 hours from home. The town of Laupahoehoe was just up the road and is charming. The Minit Stop has very competitive gas prices. The 50's Diner is a must! Great food and good prices. We always left stuffed and with a carry-out box. The portions are huge! The Hamakua Baptist Church is a wonderful place to worship. The people there felt like family after the 3 Sundays we attended. The train museum was very interesting. Laupahoehoe Point will always be one of our favorite spots. The ever-changing waves against the rocks is mesmerizing.

We also enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the waves crashing against the cliff below the house. With the windows open, there is quite a bit of road noise from the road farther up the mountain behind the house. This usually started about 4 A.M. After the 3rd night, we were use to it and were able to tune it out.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this home. I will definitely check to see if it is available next time we come to the Big Island, and would recommend it to family and friends.
