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!

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.

Beautiful and Relaxing stay on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home awaits as the gates swing open and you are greeted with a driveway lined with trees and other flowering plants.

The home was very clean and the layout worked very well for us. My parents and sister enjoyed the two large bedrooms upstairs while I used the downstairs which functioned as a small apartment on its own. The upstairs is very open and air with high ceilings and a small lanai off the dining area. There are views out to the back yard which is beautifully landscaped and features a lovely pool which we enjoyed every morning during our stay.

The location works very well for exploring the eastern half of the island. A short 5 to 10 minutes stroll will get you to some views of the ocean. If you are willing to venture a little further down the road, a 15 to 20 minute walk leads to Kaloli Point, where you can stand on the old lava flows and watch the waves crash against the rocks. A truly worthwhile experience while staying at the house.

We also explored some of the southeastern coast with a short drive to Lava Tree State Monument and MacKenzie State park for more views of the crashing ocean waves. The drive along the coast heading toward Kalapana also brought more spectacular views and leads toward the county lava viewing area. It was also a 30 minute drive to Issac Hale Park, the launching point for many of the lava boat tours, another unforgettable experience.

The town of Pahoa, with several delicious restaurants was only a few miles south and Hilo is approximately a half hour north with many more restaurants and attractions to see. We also made time to stop at Volcanoes national park which was less than an hour away. We also drove north of Hilo up to the Wai'pio Valley Overlook and stopped at Akaka Falls on our way back to the house.

The owners were very easy to deal with and very quick to respond to an questions we had. We would definitely stay in this house again on a return trip to the island. Thank You for sharing your piece of paradise with us.
