Guestbook comments from the owner

What a delightful experience! Maria was so welcoming and responsive. The suite was spacious and comfortable, nicely decorated and clean in a quiet location close to the beach. Loved the porch kitchen. Happy to come home at night and will recommend staying here to my friends.

Quiet and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We were surprised by a couple of things you need to be aware of before you book. First, the "kitchen" is on an open porch and comprised of an apartment sized fridge, a microwave, a toaster oven and a sink. We didn't cook a lot, so that was not a problem for us.There is no TV(although there is a DVD player). There is no air conditioner, but with ceiling fans, we were not uncomfortable at night.The WIFI is excellent. Beautiful hardwood floors; very clean throughout. Maria is extremely nice and willing to help you out if you just ask. Even with the things that were lacking, we enjoyed our stay there (we were gone during the days).

Awesome stay with a generous, helpful host

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed some days in this spacious accommodation located in a lush area. Fresh Avocado and Banana generously offered by Maria as well as the lovely sound of birds and frogs increased this feeling of staying in a paradisiac garden.

We would certainly stay again at this wonderful place!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Maria and Steve were very welcoming to my wife and I during our visit to celebrate our anniversary and my wife's birthday. We had everything we needed and felt much more comfortable staying there than in a hotel. We felt like we were visiting family. We had everything we needed during our 3 night stay. The lanai/outdoor kitchenette was a nice place to retreat after the daily adventures. We enjoyed listening to the sounds of nature. The location was in perfect proximity to our favorite snorkeling beach where we hang our hammock and relax. The accomodations are very affordable and pleasant enough to want to stay much longer next time. Thank you for your hospitality. You and Steve are very pleasant.

In and Out

  • 5 of 5

Although our stay at this property was brief (just overnight), Maria's warmth and hospitality made the Big Island just a little bit more enjoyable for us. The cool island air at night, and all the sounds of nature outside, made for a wonderful night's sleep. Thank you, Maria!
