Amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

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 Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

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.
