PRISTINE and UNUSUAL -- Large Lanai, Private Bedroom, Private Entrance, Parking steps away in a HOME!

Why compromise your vacation experience when you can live in a real home away from home in a truly comfortable house? This is a practical and authentic Hawaiian Living Experience you will treasure and want to come back to stay with us again!

Don't be fooled if you don't know -- lower is hotter and closer to the ocean is more traffic and noise. We are about 10 minutes from the beach but that is a good thing! At our home the elevation is just right to be about 10 degrees cooler than the sweltering oceanfront properties and with our tradewinds and the cross ventilation of ample windows and patio styled doors with big screens -- you'll enjoy every moment of natural cool fresh air many would envy (and you can hear nature instead of fans and compressors).

VCR/DVD/ DirecTV Satellite with Weather, LOCAL network (and so the local news) channels.

Ample, off street parking that is just steps away to your entrance.

WIFI that covers you inside or on the patio and even if you lay out in the yard.

Access to our washer and dryer when you stay a week or longer.

Upon request we can place a wireless phone in your rental that gives you free unlimited LOCAL CALLS (no incoming calls) to the Big Island, all the other Hawaiian Islands, and to the MainLand USA.

Upon request, we can provide you with a roll-a-way bed (subject to prior requests or availability.

There is a spacious enclosed lanai that extends all the front of the flat which then goes right out to the lower level yard which is also just steps from where you park -- all on one level.

Situated on an acre of land, this fantastic flat has a PRIVATE bedroom separated from the rest of the rental, with a queen bed with two bed side drawers, chest of drawers (that all match the bedroom set) AND a full closet.

Inside is a kitchette with full size stainless steel sink, cabinets, coffee pot, toaster, dishes, etc., and outside on the enclosed lanai is a full sized self igniting gas range with self cleaning oven, a frostless full sized refrigerator, a sofa/futon sleeper, a round 4 person dining table AND a full sized wooded picnic table.

From the lanai you enter into the living room which is nicely decorated with Island Themes. There is a short hall way that connects from the living room to the kitchenette, or turn to the bedroom or go forward to the bathroom.

A cozy retreat, a lover's nest, or the perfect place to recharge between adventures -- the choice is yours as your mood strikes. Teachers come and stay with us, locals come when they want to spend a day at our beaches or shopping, business travelers love this place, and of course vacation renters from all parts of the world.

So, come live like a local would prefer to live. We know what really counts to make a vacation visit go smooth and then we also care enough to provide it to you.

The insides are unique and full of attention to detail and we bring them to you not just clean but SPOTLESS.

Much more information, recommendations from people who have stayed (and stayed again) on our site. Email your arrival & departure dates, how many people and we PROMPTLY send all this information back to you the first time..

Mahalo for reading, and please have the best time when you come here, it's a beautiful place to come and explore, relax and enjoy!

Area Information
Outside our property extends past most people's clear range of vision. There are lounge chairs, a picnic table and grill out on the lawn.

Our acre of land is situated in a neighborhood of 1 acre or larger lots -- known for peace and quiet, very much like a rural setting where you can see the stars at night.

We have coffee, banana, macadamia, papaya and star fruit trees which you can partake of when in season (well the coffee might take a bit of work!)...

People are known to go out and take morning and afternoon walks in the neighborhood. Well, some people do take runs!

Yet you can jump in the car and go up the street to a local grocery store about 2 miles away.

Go a bit further and you are at Costco Wholesale where all sorts of deals can be had, plus they have a food court with nice salads, pizza, hot dogs and sodas. The least expensive gas this side of the Island is at Costco and you are 10 minutes away.

Go down the street to the main town to make a quick trip to Wal-Mart or rent a video at BlockBuster. Here also are the large supermarkets and all the usual a city will offer like McDonalds, Taco Bell, Natural Food Markets, Farmers' Markets, independent local food restaurants, and much more.

On our rental pages we have trip ideas, many pointers, a FAQ page, many maps and other resources. Your can choose any link below and find easy menus so you can explore these helpful pages at your leisure.

Lots of room and well furnished, this 1 bedroom vacation rental is well located. Mauna Kea, and the Northern beaches are reasonable drives ans Costco/ Walmart and Ali Drive are close. Well eventually conquered the TV/cable/dvd remote, which was a battery problem. The Internet access was simply too complicated and not even possible using tablets due to the requirement to reprogram the router access. This should be simplified for less tech-savey renters. That said, we would still strongly recommend this place however.

Owner's reply:

Glad you enjoyed.

Most folks connect to the internet automatically, I know we do when we are there with a kindle or computer in tote, you do not reprogram the router each time :). We include HOW you could set up a connection should you require it in the Vacation Rental Handbook -- you must have found & read that.

We test the TV reception before we leave during our cleaning process, just as we check everything else -- but batteries can be weak & we'd not detect..

Hope to see you back!
