This Home was Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This home was wonderful! The pool and patio were a gathering place from breakfast to star-gazing. Everything we needed to feel at home was there. My granddaughter called it a mansion! We can't wait to return!

All the luxuries of a resort...with the privacy, space & comfort of home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Donna and team for an amazing holiday that we will always cherish.

From the moment we first enquired about the property Donna and her team were responsive, efficient and went out of their way to make sure we had an enjoyable holiday. And you really can have a true holiday in this house.

The house was spacious and luxurious, while being comfortable and unpretentious.

We are looking forward to coming back and would definitely recommend this property.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Donna,

Thank you so much for the use of your house. We had a wonderful vacation and the house was just perfect for our needs. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool, the use of the beach supplies, and the very well stocked kitchen. Hope we can use it again in the future.

Perfect choice!

  • 5 of 5

We selected this home after much searching for our adult children and their spouses/1 girlfriend now a fiancee, to meet us on The Big Island for a 2 week vacation. Our time in this lovely home and on The Big Island completely surpassed our expectations.

There is a lot more driving than we had on the other islands but it was breathtaking and worth the rides. It gave us time to visit in the very nice 7 passenger van we rented. Waimea had everything we needed but Kona was completely accessible. I researched air quality / VOG and it was much better at this home's location than down in Kona.

Access to the 2 resorts was worth every penny. The beaches differ as do the happy hours and entertainment. The Waimea Farmers market had so many quality products. On one gloomy day we found a massage school in Waimea and all went for massages!

Our son proposed on the southern tip of the island at a beautiful black beach. And we snorkeled and boogie boarded to our hearts content at Hapuna Prince and Mauna Kea beaches and for several days at "two step" - a bit of a drive but worth the spectacular snorkeling!

Donna, the owners and Marsie could not have been more accommodating. They made great suggestions for shopping, dining, entertainment and a free luau.

The home was spotless and a perfect "home base". The gated community made us feel very safe, the neighborhood was well appointed and beautiful. The kitchen was well stocked with every cooking pot/pan/blender/rice cooker/utensil, etcetera that you might need. We were thrilled to have spices readily available!

The rooms were private and even sleeping in the family room felt private.

If you want a clean house with lovely en suite bathrooms, a refreshing pool, hot tub, comfortable outdoor furnishings, BBQ and even boogie boards and snorkeling equipment this is the place for you!

We played games, made gingerbread houses, lounged poolside, and in the mornings all 7 of us had coffee on the patio and wondered what the "less fortunate" were up to! Lots of giggles and time to renew and strengthen family ties while each had enough room for personal space.

We came home to Colorado -7 degrees and a lot of snow. We will call Donna immediately when we return to the big island. She and Marsie made us feel like family and that we had a "safety net" if need be while being so far away from home.

5 Stars absolutely! And every sight-seeing place on the island was an easy drive.

Beautiful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was fortunate enough to spend 22 glorious nights in this beautiful house. It truly is ideally situated with access and guest privileges to the two best beaches on the island hands down. Great ocean views from the pool area. We loved to come back from a hot day at the beach to our own pool, it is such a better option that returning to a cramped hotel room (2500 sq ft, private pool, plus 1 acre of land vs 400 sq ft and a tiny balcony?). Also, we were amazed at the various views from the property - there aren't many places that can boast views of 5 volcanos from the back yard! (Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Hualalai, Kohala, and yes even Haleakala on Maui on clear days). Kitchen is very well stocked with every possible utensil and kitchen appliance you could ever want.

The property was immaculately landscaped, including your own private winding driveway within a gated community. Our family would highly recommend this place for your next Big Island vacation.

We wish to also personally thank Donna and the owners for being so generous for allowing us to defer our original vacation dates due to a family medical issue in 2014.
