We first came to the islands in 2000, on an anniversary trip - and couldn't stay away! We fell in love with the big island of Hawai`i in 2005 and found we keep coming back!
Cindy Young purchased this house in 2012
We chose this area because it's close to all we love about this Island! The sound of the rain at night is soothing. The smells of the jungle around us and the quiet days are fabulous! We even love the sounds of the Coqui frogs at night! Our NaloNalo Kauhale will be the home we retire to in a few years.
Had a great stay at your place.
We give it a 👍👍👍👍👍rating.
Enjoyed what the area had to offer.
Ate outside afew nights. Saw the Volcano at nite.
Everything was great!
Highly recommend it to anyone.
Had a perfect 6 day stay in this comfortable home. Had all the conveniences as if we were in our own house. Enjoyed the lanai and being able to BBQ. Just sitting outside at night was a pleasure. Conveniently located for little day trips. Had a wonderful time on our family vacation to Hawaii. Would recommend staying here to anyone.
We had an amazing trip to big island, this home is really close to everything. We visited the tide-pools, Volcano National Park, National Historic Sites/Parks, hiked to see lava flow to ocean, horseback riding, shopping, markets Wed./Sat.,and many hikes to waterfalls and petroglyphs. Wish we had more time here, I recommend this home to everyone looking for a great place to stay. The hurricanes Madeline, Lester did not stop us from having fun. Snorkeling with the green sea turtles was a lifetime memory that I will want to do again, next time. My husband Jeff and I, daughter Jazmine, and son Jaden want to thank Cindy for letting us stay at your home, it was truly a home away from home. Hopefully soon we can return, starting to plan, and save for next year for a return trip to your home, I want to make this an annual vacation for family every year.
We loved the location. It was in a quiet neighborhood. Nicely decorated with three rooms. Just perfect for us.
We had the best time at this home. It is so homey and inviting. All amenities you could need from the kitchen to extra blankets in the bedrooms. The owners are amazing and very nice to work with. I wanted to start planning my next visit before I even left.
Great getaway! Comfortable furnishings. Everything we needed. The fans were a real plus as I understand this is the warmest Oct. in many many years. Loved the binder with the list of local restaurants. We were not disappointed!
We went to Hawaii as a family of five comprising my 80 year old Mom, wife, and two teenagers (14 and 17). We arrived in Hawaii at the Hilo International Airport, and rented a car while on the island (recommended). The host’s instructions on how to reach the home are great. The location is idyllic, exactly as posted on the website, and better in life. The fresh clean air of the location, and the flower lined rural road leading you to your final stretch home are an awesome bonus, The house is clean, and well furnished. The lanaii overlooks a wonderful, simply landscaped, picturesque front yard. Snorkling gear is in supply, and the basic amenities are all just like home. Even our 17 year old said the place was great! The host also supplied a binder of tips on what to see in the area. We visited Volcano National Park, some wonderful beaches and local snorkeling ponds, the big lava flow that threatened Pahoa, Waipo Valley, the old City of Hilo, Muana Kea Visitor Centre, took a day trip to Kona (west side of the island), and bought local market food out of Pahoa (just 10 minutes away). We stayed for the last whole week of March, 2015. The weather was wonderful. Whether you wish to just stay around the house and enjoy the setting, or to toodle about, this is a wonderful place to be. We would recommend this home to anyone without hesitation.
