Fantastic spot for a quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a unique and lovely place to stay. My husband and I needed a quiet getaway and it was just right. We didn't want for anything during our stay, and Cindy was a great hostess. The house is off the beaten path, most unusual, and exactly what we look for when we travel. The kitchen is always something we use a lot and everything we needed was there, as well as many extras. The house has every modern amenity and we would absolutely stay there again! It's not for you if you want an exciting social nightlife, but if you want peace, tranquility and to enjoy the true nature of the area, stay here! Explore the grounds! And find the local lava tubes! They are amazing. Southern-most point in the U.S.? A short drive away! And the Green Sand Beach is wonderful.

My Fall Vacation Big Island

  • 5 of 5

From _______October 9th 2016______ To ____November 1, 2016___________

I am mosy appreciative for the the vacation I experienced due to the gracious hospitality you provided. While I have stayed in several rental properties over the years, you surpassed previous renter properties by addressing to my every need prior to my arrival. The flowers , candies and welcome note you left on the kitchen table for my arrival gave me such a warm and inviting feeling to be in your home. I was very impressed with your interior decorating and the view from your lani.

I must add how grateful I was to find that as my host you were also an experienced holisitic massuist. You were kind enough to provide me with an emergency appointment to address an old neck injury that could have ruined by vacation. I am extremely grateful for your medical expertise that resolved by emergent need.

The location was perfect for me to reach both Kona and Hilo, and the volcano of which was an important part of my vacation. I will definetly reschedule with you in the very near future as I feel I have found where I want to be when vacationing on the Big Island.

  • 5 of 5

This quaint hale was spotless and gifts awaited of chocolate dipped mac-nut cookies,coffee and fresh flowers which were provided by our gracious owner.There was good reading material and movies and internet to take care of business. There is a great ocean view and relaxing on the sun porch was a plus.The location was great was able to travel to the Hilo side in a day. And could go to the Kona side another day. It's close to the volcano and the black sand beach.And the sunsets spectacular the stars a plenty.......I would recommend this jewel on Big Island

I don't mind giving this rental a 5 star. We enjoyed this rental to the max. It was a private piece of heaven. The night sky was awesome, lots of stars. l was really ready for some rest and peace as I have been on over load and this was definitely the place for us. Thank you Cindy for sharing your lovely home with us. I recommend this one highly.

Cute cottage with great ocean view.

  • 4 of 5

Ranchos (southern part of the island) is my favorite neighborhood on the Big island. Half-way between Hilo and Kona, so great for day trips, then driving home to a serene, cute cottage where birds sing, quiet abounds and a gazillion stars light the sky at night.

You can drive around the whole island in about 5 hrs, but stopping is a must, so we took 10 hrs.

This cottage is older, but has been well-kept with care. The bed was very comfy, the bathroom is large. The whole house was very clean.

The sunroom was our favorite spot to sit, look at the ocean, catch our breath and enjoy a cooling breeze.

The yard seemed to have the best floral and fauna in this area.

Internet was good, but the TV did not get local news, but there were quite a few movies, if one was inclined.

The neighborhood is gated, which is nice. We maybe saw three other cars the three days we stayed at this house.

The kitchen is a good size, but I had to take a star off: there was a coffee maker, but no coffee. In all the VRBO's I've stayed in, this was a first.

The owners were a pleasure to communicate with, and very nice.

All in all, I can recommend this lovely, little cottage.

Owner's Response: Heather, I am glad that you enjoyed the peace and quiet at my little cottage and greatly appreciate how you cared for everything there. I am sorry to hear that you did not find the local news channels, they are channels 2 - 4 -9 & 11. I will definitely make a note of that on my welcome letter. Also, I appreciate the feedback to provide coffee for my guests. I will definitely be on top of that. Mahalo, Cindy

Marvelous Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to recharge, peaceful and beautiful with many attractions within driving distance. The place was very homey, well appointed, well stocked, extra clean and comfortable. The hostess was very welcoming and took care to answer our questions yet leave us to enjoy our privacy. We visited some incredible beaches nearby including Honomolino of Blue Hawaii fame, Ho'okena, an accessible family beach, Punalu'u Black Sand Beach with its famous turtles, Green Sand Beach by escort service, and smaller beach parks like Whittington and Kawa. We also hiked nearby Manuka State Park and Kahuku Preserve, part of the National Park, a place with stunning views from paths and roads. It was the best to come back to our quiet cozy accommodations after these day trips. We had a wonderful time and would absolutely stay here again. Great for adventure travelers, nature lovers, and close enough to everything in the Volcano National Park as well.

Ka Lae also called South Point is the southern most point in the United States. According to historians, the first Hawaiians may have landed near here from the Marquesas as they arrived in their ocean going canoes. Several ancient Hawaiian sites are located nearby.

During the winter months, one of the most spectacular sites from the point is the magnificent humpback whale. The Hawaiian Islands comprise the most significant breeding grounds for humpback whales in the entire North Pacific. What a delightful sight it is to watch them with their young calves. You can enjoy these friendly and energetic creatures display activities like tail slaps, fin waves, and breaching. When a humpback whale breathes, air rushes out of the blowhole at nearly 300 miles per hour and can be seen from a great distance.
