About Steve Marcotte
We have owned and managed Hawaii Vacation Rentals since 1993 and helped many thousands of guests to enjoy their stay in paradise. We are a boutique rentals and sales company that focus our attention on a small number of properties. Steve is a real estate broker and has been licensed in Hawaii since 1999. Iku is a licensed real estate agent and a native Japanese speaker. We have traveled extensively and this gives us an understanding of what our guests need to make their stay enjoyable and safe. And being owners of rentals gives us the experience to help others buy and sell rentals and second homes. We founded a vacation rental company named A Piece of Paradise on Hawaii Island (aka The Big Island) in 1996 and managed wonderful vacation homes in a special area named Kapoho. In 2011 we sold A Piece of Paradise and began relocating to Honolulu. A multi-year search for properties followed, and our hard work paid off! In addition to managing our own properties we also love to help others buy their own piece of paradise in Hawaii. Even if you cannot live in Hawaii full time, It is a wonderful feeling to know that you have property is here and you can come whenever you want. And when you are not staying at your property the rent can help pay the bills. Steve Marcotte Principal Broker Hawaii License Number RB-18115 Hawaii Second Homes 430 Lewers St Honolulu, HI 96815
Read the fine print
First and foremost Steve is great. A super guy. The house is beautiful but has bed bugs and roaches. The house does not have AC. We were miserable in the house even at night when it was less hot in the house. At a minimum they could have a window AC unit in each bedroom so you could escape the sweat box house. If this house had AC I would definitely recommend it. Without AC it is like living in a sauna.
Thank you for your kind compliment about my service. Much appreciated. Out of concern by your review I decided to stay at the house myself after you left. We thoroughly inspected all bedding and there is no trace of bedbugs. Maybe you saw another type of bug and assumed it was a bedbug? We've never had bedbugs in the 19 years we've been managing this home. It is important to keep a clean kitchen or it can draw roaches or ants inside. We do pest control periodically to discourage them coming into the house. After your experience I decided to rewrite the cooling instructions for the house with more detail to help guests keep the temperature comfortable. As you can see from the other guests' reviews they did not have the experience you did. Aloha, Steve
Wonderful mauka getaway
Nice quiet neighborhood for a mauka getaway. Spacious and comfortable. Very much enjoyed our stay.
classy comfortable home
This 3bdroom with an asian flair was so comfortable ..every single thing was so wonderful. We had an injury and illness so we had a lot of time to be in the house. The neighborhood is lovely and easy to get to resorts and beaches. Thank you for opening your home to us.
What an amazing and unique home! We truly enjoyed our stay! The views are beautiful, the home is spacious and the community is very nice. Some of the fixtures are a little dated and not having A/C is something to get used to, but overall it is a wonderful home, away from home!
Aloha From Alaska
Hated to leave our piece of Paradise we found!! What a great place, quite, peaceful, nice deck and yard to BBQ and relax after a day at the beach. Clean and spacious. No A/C but no worries, not needed, cool breezes will have you reaching for covers during the night!!
This place is absolutely lovely. The master bathroom is a dream, especially after a long salty swim.
The house is on a quiet cul-de-sac.
Three people stayed in this place - lots of room and we loved it.
