“Private Relaxing Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

The Good:
Fantastic waterfront (cliff-front) house with great crashing wave sound.
Very Private
Incredible pool with swim spa
Very nicely furnished with full kitchen.
Close to the lava flows (if they are flowing)

The Bad:
Mosquitoes! The Large Sliding windows in the main living area and the bedroom have no screens, so when we left these open for the breeze, we were eaten alive. Our fault, but had no idea how bad it would be.

There is a book with "things to do/eat" in the unit, but at no time did it mention a small market (Next to Uncle Roberts) just a few miles down the road at the Lava field. We drove 18 miles round trip the first night just to get some groceries.

Small item, but, only 2 pillows in the entire house for sleeping. Would be nice to have a couple extra or an option for a different kind.

Overall a lovely stay. Would recommend to those that want to be away from the main areas, do a little swimming or go to the local beaches. A lot of driving if you plan on visiting the Volcano, Hilo, or the other side of the island.

Aloha Mark,

Mahalo for your review. We wish you could have called us about your concerns. We would have been happy to help and answer any questions you may have had and helped in any way we can. We are installing the screens for the sliding doors. The store down the street is small and expensive and not much of a variety to choose from. We recommend going to Pahoa as the selection and prices are better. Pahoa is only 9 miles away:)We have 4 pillows on the bed and extra 2 pillows in the bedroom dressers. We hope your next stay with us would be better. Mahalo again:)
