Lots of room...all the amenities listed and more!! Kitchen was loaded with all types of gadgets, pots, pans, dishes, soap and a dishwasher and detergent!! Bathroom had a walk in shower AND a separate jacuzzi tub!! The house was used to prep for a baby luau and store things..and it was..so relaxing to come home to after running around in hilo town....the house was ....PERFECT!! Definitely want to come back just to chill! Also, Mike was very quick in responding & super accommodating!! Mahalo piha!
Initially, I was a bit hesitant because of the location (relatively isolated from the main cities), but after arrival and seeing the house, I was glad we chose to stay here. The house is exactly what you see in the pictures. It felt like home! The kitchen is modern and fully equipped, the beds were large and comfortable, the lanai is fully covered and spacious, the bathrooms were nice, there is a modern washer/dryer combo, and the neighborhood was quiet (lots of friendly dog walkers). It is a 5 minute walk from the house to the ocean-side cliffs that the Hawaiian Beaches community is known for, so you can hear the ocean pounding them during large swells (perfect for sleeping). You also get an almost constant tradewind breeze all day long in this area, which keeps things nice and cool via flow-through windows. If not, there are plenty of ceiling fans to keep the air moving. The coqui frogs are quite numerous, as is expected in Puna, but they were not as deafening as they can be in some other areas. I actually like them, but they can be a nuisance for certain visitors. Also numerous in Puna are mosquitoes, but I think I saw ONLY 3 of them in the 3 weeks that we were there, and that includes after 7 days of continuous rain.
I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone, especially families, that don't need/want the typical beachside condo experience. Thanks again Mike!
Very nice, clean house that is comfortable and secure. I highly recommend it!
I came to Big Island few times and this time I have opportunity stay at Mike house. The house is clean and nice with almost everything for your vacation. Thanks Mike for your generous which we don't see much now a day to share with us a piece of paradise with a little amount of money in this rough economy. I Love big Island and special Pahoa. I will come back and hopefully can stay at his house again
Location was beautiful. A quick walk to ocean views.
Clean and could sleep 6 comfortably.
When we got there the house was hot, opened all the windows and turned on the fans, within an hour the house was comfortable. Sat out on the lanai while house cooled off, perfect. This home is comfortable and if you enjoy cooking the kitchen had it all. Thank you Mike for sharing your beautiful home.
