We had a wonderful stay here. Caryl, our host, is full of information and more than willing to help you discover local places and her favorites. Some of the places she recommended were our favorite parts of the trip. Take advantage of her knowledge of the area! The place was perfect for our stay. We had everything we needed in...

Management response:

Aloha Melissa, Thank you for your kind review. It was a delight to get to know you both. Please come back to see us soon. Caryl

Two days prior to our stay, we had to cancel our entire trip due to my husband's increased cardiac problems. His doctor strongly advised us to cancel. Caryl was very concerned and gave helpful advice. She was always easy to deal with and provided much info about Big Island. Just wanting to make it clear that we did not cancel...

Management response:

Aloha Karen, Thank you for the kind review. We indeed got another booking for all of the dates you reserved but had to cancel. I will be refunding the entire amount of the new booking to you as soon as I receive it from the other booking site. We look forward to seeing you when your husband's health improves and...

When we booked a six night stay, we were impressed with the owner sending us numerous emails with suggestions of things to do on the Big Island. Well, that was just a hint of more to come. We've stayed in a lot of rentals and, except for the exceptionally service-oriented New Zealanders, have never experienced such accommodating hosts as Caryl...

Mahalo nui loa for the very kind review. We are missing you both already. Guests like you two are why we enjoy hosting so much. Please do come back soon. Caryl

About the neighbourhood
Quiet residential neighborhood, close to everything, but away from it all! At 1000 ft. elevation, we have wonderful breezes (mauka-makai) from mountain to ocean, and back.
This is especially important when you come home from a day trip to the beach, the volcano, or just to a restaurant in town. It's a comfortable temperature due to the elevation.
No street lights means you can see the stars at night. We have unusual cactus, some night-blooming and fruit bearing. It's a real adventure!

Free off-street parking. Lots of beach gear in the carport next to your car. All for your use.
Gas grill on patio (lanai)
Car not needed
