Family Gathering

We spent a fabulous week at this lovely house in February, 2014. It was a perfect location and accommodations for 4 generations. There were ten of us, ages 4 to 84. Many things about the visit are memorable, but especially we found that the house offers a big group lots of spaces to be together, and also places to be alone. Large bedrooms and bathrooms distributed conveniently and each with some privacy. There were places to make puzzles together, play cards, eat shared meals, watch the Winter Olympics on big screens (several), and then outdoors to go swimming (luxurious pool!), and explore the surroundings amongst the avocado trees. The kitchen is spacious and modern so several people can work together on different things and come up with a wonderful spread.

An issue arose with the water supply, but vastly more important, we found that all it took was a quick phone call, and the owner leapt into action, and things were fixed. She has a well-established support crew that knows what to do when stuff happens.

This vacation house is conveniently located near some of the best ocean beaches on the Big Island, in the Captain Cook/City of Refuge area, and the owner’s detailed descriptions in the written information are very helpful. The house has enough altitude above the ocean that the view of the sky and sea is spectacular, and yet the temperatures/humidity are moderate 24/7.

When you visit this place, be sure to take the time to walk down to the main road and back at least once. Round trip it is about an hour’s walk, and if you take time to smell the flowers, and to take pictures of the plants, flowers, fruits, berries and animals along the way, you won’t soon forget it.

Incredible Home! One of the best vacation rentals on the island (if not THE best)

  • 5 of 5
I've seen a decent chunk of the Hawaii, and this house is one of the nicer homes I've seen on any island, particularly Big Island.

Upon the drive up to the house, the road narrows and winds.
You turn onto the palmtree-lined driveway and ahead of you is this big, beautiful house. The house itself is a fenced complex within the larger avocado orchard (SO nice to be able to walk outside at any time and eat avocados)

There were only four of us on the trip, but I plan on going back with my entire family soon. The house is open, beautiful, clean, and the interior design was gorgeous (I am a designer).

Before we went on the trip, I was unsure of what to expect. The landlord was very helpful, the house sounded great, but when I read the other reviews I was a bit worried from what some people were saying. After staying at the house, I think I know why there are some bad reviews.
It seems other people had issues with the weather, not the house, so don't worry about this place if you want a fantastic Hawaiian experience. Sure, the clouds roll in during the afternoon, but every single morning was BEAUTIFUL. Around noon, clouds rolled in, and we trekked down to town to hang out on the beach. Then around dinner we went back up to the house, the clouds were usually all gone by then, and we were pleased to see a beautiful sunset. Every. Single. Night.

No utility problems (but I asked about it prior to renting. The landlord assured us she had people ready to help. We were staying in rural Kona, afterall, so I was just happy to hear there were plans if something broke. Not any different from a mechanic being on-hand at a hotel.)

I highly recommend this rental. Thank you again!
