“Home Sweet Home”

Reviewed 24 Oct 2016

Your home is absolutely breathtaking... Inside and Out, could/would stay forever.... The decor was beautifully designed, and flowed from one room to the other. Loved the secluded area, the jungle (rain forest), and the music of the frogs. Felt like a local and enjoyed the town...... I can not say one negative thing about the house or our stay on the island, except did not want to leave!!!

Owner's reply: Aloha and Mahalo for you kind words about our home. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. The island truly is a magical place and it is guests like you that keep magic going. Should you ever come to the Big Island again in your future travels we hope that we see you again. Much Mahalo Denny & Lauire

“Great Family Vacation”

Reviewed 6 May 2016

We stayed at this perfect vacation house for 3 weeks, there where 4 adults and lots of room for us all. It is setup well and was perfect for our needs, enjoyed the air conditioning in the master bedroom in the basement. The hot tub was great on those rainy days. We would get up every morning and have breakfast on the lanai, and then decide where to go each day. Then pack our lunch and sightsee and snorkel some of the most beautiful spots around the island, my favorite was Kapoho tide pools and the drive there along the Government road. We would get home every evening BBQ dinner, sit on the lanai drink some wine and listen to the coqui frogs LOVED them! I would recommend this home to anyone wanting to visit the big island of Hawaii.

Owner's reply: Aloha! It was so nice that Denny and I got to meet all of you during your stay! So very glad you enjoyed our home and your stay on the island. Yes the Tide pools are fabulous! We also love the "Coqui' frogs otherwise knows as the "night birds" to some. Should you visit the big Island again in your travels your more then welcome to stay at our home. Much Mahalo! Denny & Laurie

Owner Supplied Testimonials

We were traveling with another couple and we just cannot say enough about this lovely rental. Everything was just perfect we were so glad to have found this place. Denny & Laurie have thought about everything and then some. The home is well laid out, VERY clean and tastefully decorated. There is not one negative thing we can say about this place. The rental price was reasonable for everything that the home has to offer. We received so much more than staying in a hotel for less than half the price! We plan on returning to the Big Isle for a future vacation and when we do we will be staying here. Thank you Laurie & Denny for making our lodging during our vacation such a pleasurable experience.
