My sister, daughter, and I spent a wonderful week in this charming home! The place was exactly as the posting and owner explained (well, even better) and definitely exceeded my expectations. The owners are SUPER responsive and I felt like I could ask anything I needed. The home was clean, organized, and had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. The Kapaau and Hawi area were so welcoming and full of friendly people. I felt like I got to see what it'd really be like to live in Hawaii rather than just visiting. The owners gave me plenty of great recommendations (Bamboo Restaurant being one - it was great!) and we stumbled upon plenty of other great finds (Sushi Rock was delicious!). This area of the Big Island is very different - much more jungle/rainy than beachy. It was great for exploring and hiking and seeing a different side of Hawaii. Plus, there are beautiful beaches if you take the scenic drive down the coast.
Honestly, I couldn't recommend this place enough. It's everything you look for when renting a vacation home, especially with such friendly, helpful, and accommodating owners!
