Guestbook comments from the owner

Joyce: Thank you very much. We enjoyed our stay on Hawaii. We very much prefer the Hilo side and we love the area around Pahoa. Having your home as a place to come home to after a day out and about was wonderful. I do hope to return to visit and will certainly look to book you home as my first choice.

Thank you again for allowing us to enjoy your wonderful home during our time on Hawaii.

Hope you like roosters crowing!

  • 3 of 5

We stayed for three nights. First the good, the place is newer and the furnishings were okay, had all the utensils we needed. Now the not so good....upon arrival the house was so hot we immediately looked for the A/C to turn on., but found it labeled "Do Not Use". Usually I can handle places in HI with no air but this house has high ceilings and the hot air just collects, so be prepared to keep the windows open and there are ceiling fans in the bedrooms so that helped to cool it somewhat at night. The are two rooster farms located next to this property. They crowed all day ...and all night - you will hear them with the windows open. The neighbors also played basketball one morning at 6 am. Also when we used the laundry we had to pay $1.00 to wash and $1.00 to dry, seemed a bit excessive to me. Would not stay here again.

Our experiance was wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We came up to the Big Island for a baseball Tournament and Joyce was so helpful about her rental. I called other rentals but wouldn't allow us to have 10 people in there homes. When I talked to Joyce I explained my situation and she was very understandable. When we got to the house we were amazed it was so beautiful and roomy. The only down fall was it was hot but the house has a lot of windows. We talked to the neighbors and they said yes the weather has been very hot the last couple of weeks so we can't control the weather. Our overall stay was wonderful and the kitchen area is amazing lots of room for cooking and not having to eat out every day.

50th Birthday celebration in Hawaii

  • 4 of 5

This was our first visit to Hawaii. We selected this home for its value for our group of six people for the week (A hotel would be much more costly for everyone). The house was clean and represented very well in the pictures on the site. The roosters (mentioned in the other reviews) could be heard in the front bedrooms...we were in the master and couldn't hear them. We had an enjoyable stay at the house.

It was supplied with all the day to day items you would need in a home.

We would recommend it to our friends.

Repeat stay - Great the second time, too!

  • 5 of 5

For our previous stay in the house - there were 6 people, and this time it turned out to be just us two! So the big house seemed even bigger than when we used all the bedrooms. The house is equipped with a good variety of cooking utensils, coffee maker, rice cooker, and plenty of serving items. We would love to rent it again - and bring the whole family along! We came again in February for the second time, so the lack of air conditioner was not an issue - however, each room has a ceiling fan, and the house can be opened on either side to move air through. It was very comfortable for us. People with disabilities can use the first floor - and my husband, recovering from hip surgery this trip, did just great because there were no obstacles between the bedrooms, walk in shower, and wide hallways to the kitchen and living areas!

Beautiful Red House

  • 4 of 5

The house is really big and clean. It is pretty spacious for people of 6. The house pictures are great. It matches what is there. We moved to the Hilo side of the island after staying in Kona for a few days. If you want to see volcano and rain forest, Hilo side is great. The kids really enjoyed the water gun in the garage. They also enjoyed the card and board games in the house. They liked the upstairs for their private bath and comfortable rooms. The location is also reasonable close to the Hilo airport, which made leaving the island easy when it was time to go. As other people commented, you can hear the traffic at the back and roosters and hens all around you in the neighborhood. So if you are a good sleeper, these things won't bother you. If you are not, it might be a problem. My kids and I had a pretty good humor out of it when in the morning, the hen "singed" its "I laid an egg" song. The roosters and hens really enjoyed to entertain each other during the late afternoon. It made me recall the great time of my childhood. It was part of the nature. It was a different place and a different experience. The owner was very helpful and responsive to questions. The only small issue we had was that using the laundry there required to pay. So we did not use. I did talk to the owner about it. She said that some people abused the washer and dryer. I suggest that put a note as part of the house rules to ask renter to take care the things in the house as their own. After all, everyone was paying a damage deposit when they rented the house. It would not be wise to abuse. Thank you for sharing your beautiful house.
