This is a wonderful home to get away from it all while still being close to all that the Big Island has to offer. We were 20 minutes or less from great beaches, shopping, restaurants or Waimea. Some days we just stayed in to enjoy the view and quiet; everything you might need is provided in this house and you immediately feel at home. We spent time seeing all parts of the Island; the Kohala Coast, Waipio Valley, Hilo, the Volcano, Keck Observatory, Kona-Kailua, Waimea and all the scenery everywhere in between. We were connected to the rest of the world and work through our cell phones and the high-speed internet connection at the house. (We did try to avoid those amenities but you know how it is sometimes even on vacation.) I enjoy cooking and grilling - it was so nice just to step outside the kitchen and eat in paradise. No bugs, no allergies but lots of birds serenading you. It was one of our best vacations ever if not the best ever. Richard Pinkerton Houston, Texas One final note - the mattress was a temperpedic or something. We will be buying one for our home very soon.
