We enjoyed our stay. It was just what we were looking for in a vacation rental. Elvie made sure we had what we needed for a comfortable stay. Highly recommended!
The property is a nice sized 2-bedroom place. It worked really well for our family (2 kids under 4). There were both beach and bath towels, coolers, sand toys, beach chairs, a boogie board, etc., and they even had a kid's "puddle jumper" life jacket and pack-n-play. The kitchen was fully stocked, and the beds and living space were comfortable. Overall, we were very happy with our stay here. I would highly recommend if staying in the area. (Loved Kohala Coffee Mill in Hawi, and the Anuenue Ice Cream & Shave Ice and Cafe Pesto in Kawaihae were great finds).
My husband and I loved the area. Quiet and cool at night. Roosters and doves to wake you in the morning. The place was clean and roomy for two of us. The proximity to Hawi and Pololu Valley were great and we enjoyed driving the Mountain Road to Waimea and Hilo. It would have been nice to have access to the fruit on the property as we had that at a previous property in Captain Cook. Great place for the value.
My wife and I spent four weeks at Elvie's place. She was a great host and made us feel welcome from the beginning. We were looking to move to the Hawi area and needed a place to stay while we searched for a permanent home. We were comfortable the entire time. The place was clean and organized and we did our best to keep it that way. At first we were concerned about the beds as they had a cushion top that was too soft, but we removed the extra cushions and the mattresses were great. Elvie told us that most people like the foam but some do not. Talk to her if it's an issue. The rental was really elegant and new feeling. We kept the windows open most of the time and that made the temperature just right. Elvie was a fount of information about the area, which helped us a bunch. Elvie's a busy lady but she readily answered questions when we asked them. We found her daily asking price was very reasonable for what the place offered. We've stayed in one of the two local motels and the amenities there were limited, so my wife and I wanted a place with a full kitchen, internet and easy access into the house (there is only one step and my wife is partly disabled). From their descriptions, the other nearby rentals just couldn't compare to what we found with this one. Both my wife and I feel that we hit the jackpot in finding this rental. If you are thinking of coming to this special part of Hawaii, where the energy feels good, the temperatures are moderate and the people are friendly, you couldn't do better than staying in Elvie's place.
My wife and I spent a busy week exploring the north end of The Big Island so we needed a base we could return to each evening and relax. Elvira's vacation home was just that and it proved a pleasure to make her acquaintance.
Within walking distance to library, grocery store, bank & cafe. 3-5 minute drive to historic Kamehameha Statue and several galleries, and downtown Hawi. 15 minute drive to Polulu Valley. 30-40 minutes away from Kohala Coast luxury resorts.
