Guestbook comments from the owner

This was possibly one of the best places I have stayed using rental websites. Great roomy house situated close to the bay. All the facilities you could require, the bbq was a great addition As a result we didn't need to use the stove. Maria and Steve were great hosts. Friendly but not intrusive. Very helpful and informative.

the perfect Big Island getaway house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two weeks in February 2017 in Maria's lovely back house. It was comfortable, spacious, and very well stocked, a great retreat after our days of exploring the Big Island. Two inviting porches for coffee or breakfast - from one of them we could even see Mauna Kea on a clear day. and the bonus was Maria's responsiveness to our requests or questions - we had some lovely conversations and she was very helpful in connecting us with local events in which we were interested. we strongly recommend - and we will return!
