“Absolutely Beautiful!!!”
Reviewed 7 February 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Hands down OUR favorite vacation rental on the Big Island!!! Keep in mind we are tourists that like to blend in... Pahoa or South Puna is not Kona with all the shops and resorty atmosphere but a more true Hawaiian experience. If you want a sense of community, I highly recommend going to Uncle Roberts in Kalapana on Wednesday night!!!
This vacation rental was very clean, well appointed and very well suited for two couples or a family of four. You can't beat the view as the waves are right out in front of your place!
The ONLY disappointment was the lack of washer/dryer noted in the rental amenities. There might very well have been one there originally but not when we stayed there.
Other than that, we really hope to return to the big island soon and definitely will be looking at renting this accommodation again.

Liked best: Location, location, location
Liked least: Lack of laundry as promised and lock box directions were confusing (2 lockbox codes - one we didn't find in the email until the very last page after giving us a lockbox code several pages earlier)
