“Beautiful views just outside you bedroom window”
Reviewed 10 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Great family friendly condo. Blocks away from Shipman beach trailhead. Close to the volcano and the current trailhead to the ocean entry of the current eruption. Really can see the glow from the heart of the Pu' u O'o eruption from the back lani. The place is right on the shoreline where the sound of the ocean rocks you to sleep at night and the sunrise wakes you up. The back bedrooms get hot during the day but if you open the right windows and use the fans the sea breeze cools them off nicely. Kapoho tidepools, Ahnalanui hot pool, and the Shipman Beach trailhead are all minutes away. A perfect place to explore Puna, one of the most beautiful areas of the island, as well as being a jump off for Volcano or Hilo. Great to cool off in the pool at night after exploring all day. Looking forward to returning in the whale season as we saw pods of spinner dolphins here during the summer. I would think whale watching in the winter/spring would be excellent. Thanks for the memories!

“Unbelievable View!”
Reviewed 11 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

people found this review helpful

The best thing about this house is the beautiful view! It sits on top of a lava cliff and the waves are crashing all around you. It's everything you picture Hawaii to be! We would sit in our patio chairs soaking in the beauty for hours and the spectaculars sunrises were worth getting out of bed to enjoy. We were also treated to several whale sightings as a bonus.

The house itself is much larger than anticipated, with a large open area for the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Large patio doors and windows bring the view in so you can enjoy it from the inside too. We used only 3 of the 5 bedrooms but did notice that the other 2 had cement floors rather than tile, but I would guess the owner is in the process of updating these rooms.

We also loved the pool area which is nice and private. It's not heated, but it felt great after you got in. The deck is elevated so you have ocean views from there as well. We found an umbrella in the garage so the shade lovers could enjoy it too.

My mom said that she was forever spoiled by his house as it was by far her favorite vacation rental. Mahalo Alfreda for sharing it with us as I'm sure we'll be back!

“Fantastic location and views”
Reviewed 20 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were so pleased with this accommodation, from the location to the size of the house and it just fitted our family of 5 to a tee. Owners are very helpful and always responded to any questions we had over our stay. Pool was awesome on those warm evenings and to say the views were incredible is to understate the facts. Set on top of all the old larva flows, the ocean was 20 metres from your back door. Getting there was even fun on this amazing roller coaster road you travel on to get there.
Would have no hesitating in booking this house again.

“House of Love by the Sea is a Beautiful House”
Reviewed 1 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is a huge house and has views that won’t quit. The week we were there was very interesting lots of warnings from volcano alert to being hit by a tsunami and even a small tornado. Most days we only had about 3-4 hours without heavy rain (but not a problem of the house). The strong storms we had came from the ocean (like most do), but they were to the point that we had to close most of the doors and windows to keep the rain from blowing in. Even with the fans it was HOT inside and everything was wet because of the humidity.

I’ve lived in tropical and subtropical environments about half of my life, so I understand the challenges of living here. It doesn’t take long for Mother Nature to take back what is her’s, so maintenance on a house is a constant battle. The windows are rusting and some of the sliding doors are hard to move and the blinds are starting to fall down however, the thing that needs to be fixed ASAP is the dishwasher. I went to pull the lower basket out to put some dishes in to wash, and the area that you’d normally grab was rusted through with sharp points. I did cut my hand on the damaged area (good thing I had my shots). However, if it’s not fixed I can see someone getting hurt and suing.

If a little updating was done I could see the property being marketed as a corporate retreat. But for that to happen it needs a larger TV in the front room that can be used for presentations and at least a few mini-split AC units.

Because of the weather we weren’t able to use the pool but it looked like it was well taken care of and would be fun to use.

Don’t get me wrong I think this is a great house in a great location; it just needs a little love.

“Great home for Our large 'Ohana”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Pulled into the home at night due to our flight and wasn't able to see the beautiful view til the morning. Great views of the coast. As soon as we got to the home we all jumped into the pool immediately. The kids and adults enjoyed the pool every chance we could get. Lots of beach/pool towels available. We also loved having our own washer & dryer at the home to take care of all our clothes & towel needs.

Great home, lots of beds, rooms, a bar and lots of extras. Very clean and Alfreda was so responsive & helpful with our requests. Nearly everything we needed was already provided! Including Linens, kitchen spices, extra towels, and more. There are more than enough fans for everyone if it gets warm. We had a tropical storm messing with the weather, but we made it work.

We also had a great time exploring & fishing on the cliff side. Got to see some dolphins swimming close to the cliff side. The drive to town is not far and an easy one we made it everyday. We look forward to returning and renting this home again!
