There is a local grocer, Choice Mart, located 3 miles north of the home open from 5 am – 10 pm daily and numerous local restaurants nearby. All are very good and there are none that I would not recommend.
The house is equipped with plenty of private spaces with free internet connections available throughout the property to allow everyone personal space as desired. House phone is limited to calls specifically on this island.
The main kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher. Guests clean up after themselves by placing their rinsed, used dishes, cups and silverware in it. I shall tend to the dishwasher, bathroom, and laundry duties.
Ceiling fans are restricted to when you are in the room you are directly receiving the benefits from. Turn them off when you are not in the room. Allow the trade winds you have come to enjoy freshen and cool your room in your absence. Lights are to be turned off in as you exit your room or bathroom. Leave the bathroom door open so other guests will know it is available for their usage.
I have thoroughly enjoyed living on the island of Hawaii since 2002 and selected this destination after extensive traveling which included home exchanges in many countries.
To live everyday in total excitement and contentment with what the day has to offer became my mission.
Water quality and accessibility for swimming was at the top of my priority list.
I thank the Universe each and every day for allowing all of my life dreams, and more than I ever was able to imagine to come to fruition.
My passions are swimming, coffee farming, growing tropical fruits, vegetables, and flowers, as well as creating jams, jellies and liqueurs with the fruits of my little farm.
Operating a Guest House on my property became a dream that I am proud to see becoming a reality. I find it a total honor to live on this piece of paradise and feel totally compelled to share. What a great playground!!
I believe my success is based upon my guests enjoyment during their holiday. It is my desire to assist each of my guests in experiencing Hawaii in all its glory.
I welcome you to come share my most favored place in the whole wide world.
Today is the Best Day of the Rest of My Life. Come make it yours.
I want to Thank each and every one of my guests who have written such outstanding reviews on my behalf. Thank you all for your support, encouragement, validation, and your part in my dream coming to fruition with such wonderful memories and experiences. I has been my total pleasure to have shared such good times with each and every one of you.
Rhonda purchased this house in 2004
The room and house, garden, pool and the stunning view were fabulous and more than what we expected. Great value, probably the best place to stay on the Big Island. Make sure you have time to enjoy this place, it's nice to spend an afternoon at home. Rhonda is a great host, thank you so much!
Staying at Rhonda's home was a cozy and wonderful experience! We live on Oahu and are always surrounded by business and traffic. It was great to relax, enjoy her great view, and feel at home. Rhonda's house was very clean and her landscaping is beautiful. She made us home made banana bread and coffee in the morning. Thank you so much Rhonda!
We stayed here for just one night. The place was amazing. Rhonda has her own beautiful garden and she serves fruits for breakfast from the garden.The view from the house is really beautiful. Our room as well as the entire house was very clean. Spotless!!
Rhonda is very helpful and friendly. She told us about some good beaches to snorkel and rented her snorkeling gear and beach mat as well.we wish we could stay longer !
I would highly recommend staying at this retreat. Rhonda's hospitality, beautiful home, and amazingly comfortable bed made the stay unforgettable. The pictures of the property on the website accurately portray the accommodations. So relaxing! Thanks Rhonda for your kindness.
We had a great stay on Big Island. The room was fine with a very good bed and a very generous breakfast. Rhonda is a very good hostess and provides lots of information about the area.
