Local family of 12 from Puna stayed at the home for some R&R (7 adults/5 kids) & bonding time. Stayed there so we could spend the weekend together under one roof. Home was HUGE that kids could play hide n seek; teenagers stayed in their room with their computers; adults sat around the kitchen table playing board games, cards or "talking story". We each had our own privacy yet knew what each other was doing. If there was an issue that needed attending to, Rob was a phone call away & very attentive. Water tank needed refilling so I called him & water was delivered the next a.m. In reserving the home, spoke to the owner several times & found him friendly & accommodating. There were more then enough room for all of us. House was very well supplied with towels, DVD, games, movies, etc that we could stay indoors and have fun. We parked 5 vehicles & there was more than enough room. Yard was well maintained. Cooking was easy cause tools of the trade were available. We had a nice, fun, fulfilled weekend that the family decided to do it again.
WE DID. Stayed during the Labor Day weekend and had a blast. Kids enjoyed the swimming pool from time they woke up, would take a break when hungry and back in the pool again. Some adults would go to work from the rental but "jumped" in the pool upon their return. On our second stay, we all used different bedrooms - adult boys first stayed in the "girls room" but we were nice the 2nd time & upgraded their stay. Again, Rob was accessible for any problems & would call just to check and ensure that we are okay. Home was big, clean & well maintained. Family in agreement that we should go back & I agree. Here we come in 2016. THANK YOU ROB.
Nice, spacious home, loved the area
The home is private and very spacious. We love the area and will come back. The owner is very accessible if you happen to need to contact him. Also, he provided alot of information on things to do in the area. Don't miss Lava tree State Park, hike to lava tour with Big Island Guides! Lots of other free things to see in the area as well. The master bedroom is on the opposite side of the house than the other three bedrooms. House was clean and yard was well maintained. We enjoyed downtown Pahoa with good little places to eat. Good pizza joint, mexican restaurant and a few other very good places to eat. I would stay here again.
Beautiful area-plenty of space for the family
We had a wonderful time in Pahoa. It's a quaint little town close to Hilo, Volcano National Park, wonderful waterfalls, and beautiful beaches. The house is clean, roomy and comfortable. The owner provides lots of little extras to make your stay easier. Brand new high chair and pack n play if needed. Plenty of towels for showers and the pool, which is clear and refreshing. We loved listening to the sounds of nature at night and traveling all over during the day. The owner was quick to respond with any questions or problems we had. We highly recommend this home in Pahoa on the big Island.
We were very happy to have you stay with us at our tropical vacation home in Pahoa. It's nice to hear that you and your family were able to enjoy many of the natural attractions of the Big Island that are near the Pahoa area. We look forward to your next stay with us and we hope you have a wonderful summer.
Needs an overhaul
The pool is nice. The beds in one room are blow up matresses and make noise all night, some are futon pads, the fold out in the living room is broke. Blinds are broken and would not go down all the way. Pillows stained and towels thin and threadbare. The windows were dirty and hard to see out of and mold above the shower in one bathroom, grass in the washer. One of the rules is absurd-have to haul out your own trash??? Who has room in a rental car for bags of trash to haul to the dumps? Very disappointed in this place.
We pride ourselves in providing a comfortable, clean, & well liked vacation home. Please read the other reviews.
This review is suspect considering the fact that we do not know who this person is nor how they were able to post on our site. They are certainly not commenting about OUR vacation home.
I respect my guests & get hundreds a year who are very satisfied with my home along with many repeat guests. All of our beds have mattresses & we replace our linens on a regular basis.
I'll gladly supply responses to any specifics upon request.
Nice secluded place
If you are looking for a 5 star hotel this isn't the place, but it was nice, clean and in secluded area. With the trees all around and a longer driveway, you didn't know you had neighbors. We enjoyed it very much...
A nice home away from home
We enjoyed our stay here. The home is warm and welcoming, is equipped with all the necessary items you may find in your kitchen at home. My husband and I found the home very large for just the two of us, it could easily accommodate two families. There is an inviting lenai to relax on and just take in your surroundings, plenty of room for kids to run and play in the yard as well as a very clean pool to cool off in.
We found Leilani Estates a wonderful neighborhood filled with just NICE people and family oriented. You do need to remember that you are in an amazing rain forest complete with some critters you may not be used to, the sounds of frogs, and on some nights the pitter-patter of rain that can lull you off to sleep like only your mom could when you were a baby.
The owner is great, provided pretty much everything we needed, was quick to respond when we had questions and genuinely cared about our stay in his home!
Other Activities: Boating, Bird Watching, Helicopter Tours, shopping, Volcano Park, Catered Parties
