Guestbook comments from the owner

What a great experience for our family! A wonderful well cared for home with plenty of room for three kids to get some space after a long day looking at the great sights the Big Island has to offer. I can tell Melanie is a sweetheart even though we only conversed via email. Prompt with replys to any questions and makes sure everything is just right for your arrival. The pool is outstanding and the neighbors are very friendly, great place from which to explore Mauna Kea, Kilauea Crater, Black Sand beaches, abundant waterfalls and The Hilo Farmers market. We live on Oahu so the whole Hawaii scene is nothing new but we had a simply awesome time and Melanie and Todd allowing us to stay in this beautiful home just added to it. Thanks again Melanie!

Gorgeous home with private pool

  • 5 of 5

This is a spectacular home. Our group took both the upstairs and downstairs units. It was perfect for my husband and infant, my parents and my sister. We had more than enough room and all of our rooms were spacious and comfortable. They all felt like Master Bedrooms. There were plenty of towels and linens for our stay. Everything was in great condition as well.

The common area was very open and so spacious. The deck off the kitchen was great as it overlooked the pool. We spent every meal out there.

The pool! It was amazing--so nice to have right there. This side of the island is not known for swimming beaches, so having this space to just swim and cool off was great. We also utilized the snorkel gear that is available to go off for some snorkel adventures.

The kitchen was well stocked and had so many items we could use--sugar, flour, etc. It was nice as we added to the collection with some extra items we had left over.

The property is a bit outside of Hilo, so running back to town is not a quick event-- not a big deal, you just want to make sure you plan ahead.

The property was immaculate, clean and in great condition. I cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed it. The pictures of the property, while good, do not do the place justice! :)

Thank you Melanie and Todd--you were great to work with!! We are grateful for the lovely stay.

Even better then expected!

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family was so very impressed by this beautiful vacation home. When we first walked in we knew we were 'home' for the next few days. The pictures on the website, while very nice don't do the home justice. The rooms were large, the living space open and above all everything was immaculate. The pool and grounds kept the kids busy when we were just hanging around the house and after long days of hiking and exploring it was so nice to be able to come back and relax. We were a little concerned it would be too hot in the house but once we got the place opened up the fans did a marvelous job of cooling everything off. We also really enjoyed listening to the frogs in the evening. My husband and son would go out at night 'exploring'. Everyone had a wonderful time.

Thank you so much Melanie for opening up your home to us!

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Our family group of three couples absolutely Loved this place! It is a beautiful home and property. Very spacious living area, lovely lanai overlooking the pool, three big bedrooms and baths with comfortable beds, and gorgeous grounds and pool area. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The home is very safe and secure. We were amazed at how much home we got for the amount we paid, it is a bargain for sure. Be prepared to drive a little, but it is worth it. We made trips to the Kapoho Tide pools, the lava flow, Pahoa for dinner and into Hilo and none took us more than about a half an hour. We loved being a little off the beaten path, the feeling of privacy, and living in luxury. Melanie is easy to work with and responds promptly to any questions. We highly recommend renting this property!

Gorgeous home and surrounding Gardens!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home over the Thanksgiving holiday while visiting a family member at the University. The home is fully stocked with everything you need and grounds are beautiful! We even picked our own citrus out front and make fresh lemonade and made a beautiful bouquet for the Thanksgiving table. Melanie was wonderful to work with and even had great suggestions on where to eat out. Don't hesitate to rent this lovely property!

EXCELENT HOME

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I shared this home with a friend while we were dropping off our kids at UHH. This home is AMAZING! The care and detail was outstanding, It is a truly beautiful home. The bedrooms and bathrooms were modern and amazing. The kitchen was beautiful, big and spacious with everything you need... I felt very safe and secure while we stayed there. The landscaping is very nice and the pool was spectacular! I had one small issue with WIFI, but one quick email to Melanie and it was resolved..... so quickly and had no other issues! If there was one thing I would add if I were them would be a TV in the bedroom with a master bath in it, even with that said this place is AMAZING and was perfect for our families and needs! It is a little off the beaten path but that is part of the beauty. Melanie and Todd were so easy to work with, I definitely recommend this home you will not regret it, I promise.
