FABULOUS HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

WOW... I can't say anything except WOW. This house had everything! From the incredibly fabulous view to a spacious house with gorgeous furniture. It was very well stocked with everything you didn't think to buy at the store plus more. The location was unique (a good unique) that was built around a lava flow with a small bluff facing the water. We saw turtles and dolphins every day , and had incredible sun rises. The location was a short drive south to the volcano park and warm springs areas, and north to Hilo and the waterfalls.

Truly impressive!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully presented and well proportioned home which is exceptionally well stocked for a family stay. We very much enjoyed eating breakfast and enjoying late afternoon drinks/nibbles on the large lanai. Very good value. Jamie was excellent in all matters relating to our 4-night stay. Would definitely recommend to friends!

Good stay in a nice house that needs some maintenance

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I plus our nephew and his wife had a good stay in this very beautiful house in a wonderful location. This has to be the most expensive rental we have ever had. The house is beautiful but it is amazing how quickly things start to fall apart when exposed to salt water and use as a rental. The master shower fell right off the wall due to corrosion the first day. The dishwasher did not work and the ice maker in the refrigerator had problems. We love the Hilo side of the Big Island and have stayed there many many times and expect to have some problems in homes where salt water corrodes and things happen in a rental. We reported problems to the rental agency who did their best to deal with them. The company managing this home should make sure that things are functioning and keep up on maintenance but of course on an island it is hard to get parts an make repairs quickly. Considering that the owners of this home have spent a lot of money on high end flooring, appliances, and lots of expensive upgrades one would wonder why they would want to expose such an expensive house to the use and possible abuse of renters. We treat every house we rent as if it were our own and take care to follow all rules and leave it in good condition when we depart. Investing in high end wood floors and custom stairs of African Mahogany is probably not a good idea if your are going to rent out your second home. I make very expensive custom wood furniture and I give all of my clients detailed instructions on how to take care of the functional art they purchase from me. We saw this house being built a few years ago and were surprised to see that we could rent it. We loved the house and staying in such a very nice home in such a beautiful location was very special treat.

This home is amazing and the location and view on the cliff edge is awesome

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly perfect. It is huge in size and so well designed to take in the awesome view. And private! The furniture is amazing and plentiful. A space for everyone. It is so well stocked with everything you could possibly want or need. Even the beds are comfortable! Couldn't fault it in any way. Even though we weren't blessed with the best weather, the home itself made up for it.

Amazing getaway in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home could not have been more perfect. Our family has rented numerous homes throughout the world and we all agreed that this one is at the top of our list. Even small details were taken care of like detergent for the washer, beach towels, totes, umbrellas, and snorkeling equipment. We cook most of our own meals and the kitchen was incredibly well equipped with several sets of pots and pans, cookie sheets, and other bake-ware. The home itself is breathtaking and we loved sitting on the deck watching the spray from the waves and sighting sea turtles. The management team for the home was very responsive to our needs and questions-Jamie even came to the home with her husband to fix the garage door which had snapped a spring leaving the car "trapped" inside. A professional crew came out the next day to complete the repair. Our time passed too quickly here and we were sad to leave, but hope to return someday!
