The Botanical Garden Home was the nicest place our family ever stayed. If you are looking for a Hawaiian get-a-way look no further than this property. Upon arrival the first thing we thought was; This is to good to be true. We thought; how could this be?. I wondered how in the world is this place even available to be rented? When we walked inside and observed how meticulously clean and organized everything was coupled with the superior quality of all the amenities you are left to wonder who would let people in here unsupervised? The Botanical Garden Home is not some standard vacation rental! This place is over the top in every way. The kitchen was fabulous, it had any and everything you could think of and all very expensive high quality and clean stuff. Do you know how some rentals have a combination refrigerator/freezer? well the Garden Home has it's own huge Freezer and Huge Refrigerator. The kitchen has two independent dishwashers. The Home has its own huge laundry room with a half bath in it and folding area. The washer and dryer is all high quality stuff. The King beds are all high quality memory foam. The shower has a built in setting bench. The bathtub has therapeutic jets. The bath towels are thick and of high quality. The big screen entertainment system, The leather sofa set all high quality. When you open the kitchen cabinets all high quality dish sets and glassware. Then you walk out into the screened in covered porch you find yourself awe struck as you gaze out into the back yard Garden of Eden. The owner and designer of this property was a master of gardening. The masterful placement and blending of the vast varieties of plants and trees were outstanding. To complete the feeling of having died and gone to heaven God sends you one of his angles "Sandy" to meet you. Sandy is the curator of this property and was the nicest person we meet on our entire vacation. The Botanical Garden Home is located on the North side of the Island about 25 minutes west of Hilo. The trade winds blow from the North and flow South. The active volcano is about an hour or so Southeast of the Garden Home. So the trade winds blow all the associated haze from the volcano South leaving the North side of the island clear. When we were there from June 10th thru the 18th of 2018 the volcano was constantly erupting with all the fissures flowing but back at the Garden Home you would never know there was a volcano on the island. The Garden Home is located in the perfect spot on the best island and managed by the best people.

WOW WOW WOW!!! Mahalo Nui Loa for such an amazing review!. You and your sons were such awesome guests that I would absolutely give you 5 stars plus. It brings us such joy to know that our guests fully enjoy this property along with The Botanical World Gardens, which are free during your stay. We have many reviews on another major vacation rental web site but this is our first for this website and you blew it through the roof. We so appreciate how your described the house to potential guests since as a guest yourself they know you've been here and not connected to us. Again we want to thank you for being a police officer and for all you sacrifice for your community. We truly hope you will be able to make it back again some time. Aloha and Mahalo

Amazing house situated within a Botanical paradise. Very clean, spacious house with every amenity and more! Great lanai. Tree frogs at night serenade you to sleep. Great zip line within walking distance at the Botanical Gardens.

We're so glad you tried the zip-line tour at Botanical World Adventures. You learn so much on that trip as well as have a blast zipping through the rain forest. It's very important to us that our guests feel at home which staying here, so having it be very clean is a must. Relaxing on the enclosed lanai after a day of adventure seems to be a favorite place for our guests, as well as great place for the morning coffee. We would enjoy have you back anytime. Aloha and Mahalo
