Better than the pictures!
Loved staying at Shirley's place! We enjoyed the large lanai wrapping around the upper deck, with a view of the ocean and the beautiful, well-cared for yard. Our kids loved playing in the expansive outdoor space, petting the horse and finding geckos. Home was well-stocked and clean (except for the downstairs bathtub). Beautiful setting and wonderful host make this a home we will definitely stay in again. Shirley provides earplugs and fans because the roosters are quite noisy, sometimes starting as early as 4am. Just something to consider if you are a light sleeper.
Vacation within a Vacation
This ocean view plantation feels like home and provides a wonderful relaxing stay. We spent a good part of our vacation near Waikoloa Village and Puako (just north of Hilo) but wanted to see the black sand beach, the green sand beach and the national volcano park. Rather than spend our vacation driving back and forth 3-5 hours each time, we decided to stay a few days in the south end of the island to explore without the long drive. We are so glad we did! It really was such a beautiful area and was so relaxing! Shirley thought of everything. She provides all the basics that you would have at home. Shirley is also your perfect host. Very responsive to anything while also giving you space. My kids loved the chickens, the stocked kitchen, the games that we could play around the large dining table and more. There are so many things to see in the south part of the Big Island! So many beautiful beaches and more restaurants and shops than I expected. You could spend days in the volcano national park alone. My husband said if we had to do it again we would have stayed here longer and just traveled north to Hilo for a visit or two. :-) He fell in love with the vast views and peaceful safe retreat! Thank you for a vacation within our vacation! Mahalo.
I enjoyed you and your family as much as you enjoyed staying in our rental.
Your kids were great, very friendly and courteous.
Even Rick (my husband) thought they were great.
Hopefully in the future you’ll be able to visit our place again.
Blessings and thank you for giving us a chance to enjoy you and your family.
Very nice place with kind hosts.
Has everything you need-feels like home away from home!
Very good stay
We had a great time at this home. We enjoyed the home, location and view. Very comfortable stay and enjoyed our time at this place. This place is close to green sand beach, black sand beach, volcano park and in between Kona and Hilo. The house is good for families who wants to stay away from crowded cities. There are some fruit trees on the property and animals like chicken, horses and turkeys. I will recommend to stay at this home and Shirley is a great host.
Thank you very much for a great review. I hope you'll get a chance to visit our place again. It was a pleasure meeting you and your family. Best to you and yours.
Very nice home and perfect for our needs
Very nice home and Shirley was a great host. Had everything we needed for a fantastic stay
These guests were great, considering it was their first trip to Hawaii.
Their excitement reminded me of the first time that I came here.
My hopes are that they choose our rental to stay again if they have a return visit.
Best to you and your Family.
Shirley and Rick
Great Farm House
The house is spacious, clean and fully equipped. Outside is a 7.5 acres farm with two horses and 5 turkeys wandering around. Both the black sand beach and green sand beach are within minutes drive. The volcano national park and the Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park (next to a great snorkeling site) are both within an hour. Both adults and kids enjoy the stay very much. Thanks Shirley and Rick!
These guests were a delight to visit wth. I'm hoping that them and their family will be able to return for another stay in our rental. Thank you so much for your kind review and God Bless you and your family.
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.
