Great Place, Very Spacious

  • 4 of 5

We just checked out a couple of days ago and I have to say this place was great. It was very spacious, great area, and beautiful view. The downstairs was a bit warm but was very well equipped with enough fans to make it cool. The kitchen was very large and the patio balcony was BEAUTIFUL, you could sit out there on the table and just stare out in to the "trees" lol but still beautiful. Some of us ended up sleeping out there because it was so serene and had a great breeze that blew threw. Privacy was great as you have about a half acre before the next house behind. A lot of parking space. GREAT for families with children. My kids had a blast. I loved that there is a laundry room on site. I would definitely come back again with my family and stay here.

Very big home, loved the space

  • 4 of 5

The house was very spacious with a lot of room for my entire family to stay and enjoy. We really loved the enclosed patio area. We spent a lot of time on the patio. All 15 of us were able to stay together with a lot of beds for everyone to sleep comfortably. We would definitely stay there again. Mahalo for sharing your home with us.

This was our 2nd time staying here n again we enjoyed it. Close to the property our event was located at and fit our group of 10 perfectly with lots of space. I love that there is a washer and dryer and the house is clean...I love this property n will probably stay here again in about 3yrs if I'm quick enough to get it. Thanks Anna

Great for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in January for a family vacation with both sets of grandparents. I love this area and location. We were able to walk down to the ocean one day and watch the waves. Also it is not hard to get to anywhere (with a car but you need on the Big Island anyway!). The upstairs was very nicely done, we spent most of our time up there until bedtime. The downstairs was good for me & my husband and our little girl, with her staying in the small room attached to the bedroom with the double bed. This gave us some privacy as a family with the grandparents upstairs. The downstairs as others have said is not quite as nice as upstairs but it is perfectly fine. There is another bedroom downstairs that we didn't use. We did laundry once, as well. We had no trouble with water pressure, either up or down.

The rooster was not too obnoxious (I came to HI another year just myself and at least this rooster understood about when the sun came up and didn't crow at 3am!). And there was a brooding hen! No chicks by the time we left, though.

We spent most of our days out and about, and it was great to come back to a place with enough space for all of us to relax and have a nice dinner. Will definitely stay here again if we come back to the big island and already rec'd to other people.

(I could have sworn I placed a review sooner but apparently I forgot! My apologies! This is a whole year later!)

Very nice house

  • 5 of 5

The house was great - plenty of room for our group of 7 people! It was roomy, very nicely furnished, plenty of parking, and just a short walk from the water (not swimmable though).

The owner is also very nice and easy to deal with.

The only downside is low water pressure - really only one water source can be used at a time, and the house is about a 20 minute drive from the main road. But the house is a great value for large groups, it's really hard to quibble over small things.
