The home was beautiful and very roomy ... Very relaxing and quiet .. Shirley was very welcoming and it felt just like home ... We had an awesome time
Shirley was a great host. We were concerned about the volcano. After arriving found that it created no problems what-so-ever. We traveled highway 11 right past volcano twice with no problem. Once to Hilo and second time to Waipo valley. Had great weather. Enjoyed two unique beaches close by- black sand beach and green beach. Would return again. Only disappointment was volcano park was closed.
Rural Hawaii...good location...great value...excellent host.
This home is a nice country (not city) location about 1 hour 40 minutes from Kona. We were well situated to visit Volcano National Park (40 min), black sand beach (7 min), South Point cliffs and green sand beach (45 min). The home was clean and spacious for 4 adults. The host (Nancy) is pleasant and supportive. We recommend this place.
These guests were the type that were great to chat with and I was impressed with their family bond. My hopes are that I get the pleasure of hosting them again in the future. Thank you so much Mike for your great review. God bless and best to you and you'd.
Beautiful house in a lovely location
Shirley’s house is amazing! It is thoughtfully decorated throughout. It has anything you might need in the kitchen, bathrooms and elsewhere, including a boogie board!
The only drawback is the location which is very isolated from most attractions on the island - except the volcano. If you are planning to spend most of your time at the volcano : this is your place!
Thank you Shirley for a wonderful vacation !
These guests were great. I enjoyed our conversations and discussing things they planned to do while they were here. This is why we decided to have a vacation rental for the fact that everyone that's stayed in our rental has made our life more enjoyable. Thank you all our guests for choosing our place to stay we've enjoyed all of you very much and just keep coming.
Great house, location and hosts!
We loved this house! We have rented alot of houses in hawaii over the years and can definitely say that this was the best equipped house ever. It had space, every appliance you could need, more towels than three houses combined, even had its own library of books! It was the first trip for our family so we chose this house for location, it worked well for being in the middle of hilo and kona. And also seemed to be free of vog, not sure if that is year round or not. The hosts Shirley and Rick are amazing, very easy to work with and accommodating. It was fun comparing old alaska stomping grounds and horse stories. We only wish we could have stayed even longer than two weeks :) we will definitely stay here again, and recommending it to our friends for their next summer trip. Mahalo Shirley and Rick!!!
Rick and I throughly enjoyed this family. Their little one was one of the cutest and sweet as a little one could be. We are definitely looking forward to having them stay again. Rick and I had great conversations with them and loved the family interaction. Thank you again Adkison family and blessings and happiness to until we meet again. Your Hosts.
Felt like home.
Shirley and Rick were amazing hosts. We saw them on our first day, had a wonderful visit about their property and it’s history. We were pleasantly surprised to find we could drink the natural spring water. Fresh eggs from the resident chickens were provided, and the local wild turkey flock provided plenty of entertainment during drinks on the wrap-around lenai. Other than when we needed the garbage taken out or any special special requests, Shirley and Rick were the neighbors across the pasture. The property is fenced and gated. We felt safe and secure. The neighborhood is quiet, except for all the native birds singing, crowing and gobbling - which we didn’t mind as THAT is Hawaii. The house is roomy and comfortable. There is one ceiling fan in the living/kitchen area and box fans upstairs for the bedrooms. Personal fans in the bathrooms. Everything is provided, including some staple food and spices, beach towels, 1 hair dryer and paper products. Plan to spend tine on the lenai lounging on the reclining loungers, and enjoying the ocean view. Also, plan to visit the coffee, macadamia and bee farms around the area - yum!! This is a perfect location for touring the southern part of the island and Hilo. FYI - Kona is 2hrs on a curvy road. Great for families too. Lots of safe space to run around and play. The town of Nealehu is quaint and the bakery is a must. As is the southern most restaurant - which I can’t remember the name right now - it is not Shaka.
This was the second time to the Island of Hawaii for us; we spent it with family this time and this place was perfect for us. Thank you.
We're located halfway between Kailua Kona and Hilo with beautiful mountain scenery and the great Pacific ocean to admire, which makes it easy to travel in either direction. Our active volcano is located about 40 minutes from us. We have 7 1/2 acres with grazing horses to watch and a serene setting for rest and relaxation. Our weather is perfect with lots of sunshine. We offer our Aloha spirit to those who visit and our goal is to make your stay at our plantation house as enjoyable as possible. Just to let you know, we no longer have roosters on our property because of their noise disturbing our guest. We want your stay to be as pleasant as possible without roosters crowing. Also to let you know, our place is just a short distance from Green Sands beach and about 7 miles from Black Sands beach and Sea Mountain golf course. We also have 2 nice grocery markets within 12 miles and Punalulu Bakery within 2 miles. The mountainous country sides are beautiful, I'm sure you will enjoy visiting our home and for a short time you can see how living in this area would be.
