We've rented homes and condos in Hawaii many times and this was, by far, the nicest. We wanted a secluded place to relax and be away from it all and we got it. Beautiful home, quiet, private neighborhood, and a lovely vista. The house is immaculate inside and out with high-end everything including the fully outfitted kitchen; HD TV in every room; high-speed internet and a personal home weather station (not necessarily a must, but a pretty cool gadget). The icing on the cake is the private pool. No matter where we wandered each day, we couldn't wait to get back to get in the pool.
We have shared pictures and recommended this home to all of our friends with one caution. This is truly a getaway home. No resorts and no fancy restaurants. The home is an hour in either direction from Kona and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. We made the most of lunches out and about and relished breakfasts and dinners by the pool hearing the birds and watching the butterflies.
The homeowner and the property manager were very friendly and accommodating. We hope they have many years of good guests, and we hope to return.
