Wonderful Hawaiian Jungle Escape

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxed stay while in Pahoa / The Big Island & enjoyed Robs house fully. We were able to get around easily, location and directions were clear, in general everything worked out perfectly. The kitchen was fully stocked, as was the laundry room & the pool was a great hit with all the boys. I would highly recommend this property for a relaxed escape from reality.

Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

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.

Spring break

  • 4 of 5

My sister and her family recently bought a home in Pahoa in which they moved all their belongings from Oahu to the big island. I took my family along with my 77 yr old mom who hasn't been back home for over 20 yrs., to visit them. we all had a great time seeing places that my mom spent her younger years. This vacation rental was outstanding. So beautiful,clean and packed with everything we needed. We spent our evenings lounging around talking stories or playing games,cards that were provided at the house. The kids loved their rooms and we all felt right at home. Based on the comfort and extraordinary beauty of this home, we decided to make this an annual thing. We are looking forward to next years spring break in hopes that more of our family members will attend. Rob was very professional and reliable. He was reachable at all times before, during and after our stay. He even recommended me to take my family down the road to a warm water pond to spend the afternoon enjoying fun and swimming. The drive there, 10 minutes away, was beautiful. Country beauty, mango trees on either side of the road. If you are planning a vacation to the big island, I highly recommend you checking out this home, you will not regret it. We were as they say, extremely satisfied. Until next year, we will be looking forward to another amazing stay.

Owner's Response: We sincerely appreciate your family staying with us and for your great review. You have a wonderful family and we were very happy to have you! We are especially pleased to hear that your mother was able to revisit the Big Island (the home of her roots) and that she also enjoyed our vacation home. It is important to us that you are able to have fun times in the home (if it rains) and outside visiting the nearby natural attractions that the Big Island of Hawaii has to offer (ie., the naturally heated thermal swimming area at Pohoiki Pond). We certainly look forward to your return stays in the years to come and we will strive to provide you with the best Hawaiian Island vacation rental experience possible. Mahalo, Rob

Tropical Pool home in Pahoa #426984

  • 5 of 5

I give this place excellent. This is a beautiful very relaxing area. The house is very huge, clean and well maintained. The pool is a plus. It's easy to find and very private. We stayed from April 3 to April 8 and I wish we could have stayed longer! The owner of this property is easy to get in contact with. Everything that is needed prior to our stay, he made sure we got all the information and welcomed us. I was very impress with him. I definently recommend this place. *****?

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

We had a family reunion in Rob's Pahoa home. We called it the Canadian invasion as family members from all parts of Canada met up at the house. There was seven of us. There was lots of room for us to be together or spread out if needed. My aunt and uncle rented the cottage which was very cute and perfect for them. Our favourite thing was the spacious kitchen that had everything we needed. Lots of great meals took place in that kitchen. The house was bright and clean. We did not us the pool as we opted for trips to Isaac Hale Beach Park each day which is minutes down the road. Very beautiful,lots to see and the waters are geo thermal fed. Pahoa has lots of great places to eat. We had breakfast at the Black Rock almost daily. Loved Kaleo's and Luquins. As I said for such a small town there were so many great choices. Try the spring rolls and egg rolls at Paul's Gas Station! They also have the cheapest ice $1.70 as opposed to Malama Market at over $4.00. Rob was very helpful with anything we needed. Easy to get a hold of him. This is a great house for a big family. Lovely area and we recommend it!

Kama'aina hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Secluded in the Leilani Estates, Rob's place is like home away from home. It's a location in Puna about 30mins from the Hilo airport so you need a rental, but it's just minutes away from the active volcano, thermal ponds and grocery stores for some food shopping so you don't spend a lot of money eating out. The place offered wifi which is a plus 4 bedrooms and outside the lanai leads to a pool. Rob was available throughout the whole stay if you needed anything. This is a place we would come back to when visiting ohana. Big mahalos, ROB!
