Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Ocean View

There are expansive ocean views, stained glass windows, and a full acre of beautiful plants with several paths leading to the gazebo.

This is a beautiful two bedroom, one bathroom house with a full kitchen. The kitchen is fully equipped with coffee pot, microwave, blender, mixer, stove, refrigerator, dishes, and cooking utensils.

There is Dish TV and internet.

The house is secluded but also close to amenities. About a block away is the post office, grocery stores, restaurants, and gas stations.

Besides being beautiful this property is very peaceful.

There is one bedroom with a king bed. There is a crib and a twin bed in the second bedroom. There are also two air beds available. so there is a potential of 5 plus a baby.

About Sandy Stovall

I taught school for 35 years. I decided to retire and move to Hawaii. I purchased a house that had a room downstairs that I started using as a bed and breakfast. Everyone that visited said I am a natural at this and I should expand, so I purchased a second property for vacation rentals.

Sandy Stovall purchased this house in 2015

Why Sandy Stovall chose Ka'u District

When I looked at this home, I knew it was the one for me. It is filled with stained glass and I do stained glass. It turned out that I knew the original owner, she was a customer at my gluten free baked goods booth at the farmer's market. She told me that she was really happy that I was the one purchasing her home.

What makes this house unique

Besides the stained glass, the ocean view is fantastic. The home is on one acre and very secluded.

An absolute Gem!

  • 5 of 5

This was my favorite stay of our weeklies trip. The house and garden are beautiful, the beds were super comfy, the owner went out of her way to make our stay comfortable and special. I loved drinking coffee outside on the balcony while watching the pouring rain. Very serene and quiet and lovely.

Great house! Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time staying at The Gluten Free House. Very comfortable two bedroom house. It is very well kept and the owners go out of their way to make the stay comfortable. It is great having a full kitchen and full laundry. The property and the gardens are beautiful.

We really enjoyed staying on the south side of the island. Definitely off of the usual tourist path, but still lots to see and do close by - beaches fairly close including the BlackSand and the GreenSand beach and Milolii which you hike into - the caverns, Volcano Park, lots of hiking, if you love the outdoors the south side of the big island is great! Lots of neat little restaurants down there too. All of the locals were very friendly.

Gluten Free House is highly recommended! Especially for families with young kids like us. Absolute best value for the price! Can't wait for our next trip! We will be staying there again!!!

Very pleasant!

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay in this pleasant, quiet home away from it all. Our hostess, Sandy, was very kind and accommodating with helpful information. Everything was clean and comfortable. At first I was concerned about the name "Gluten Free House", feeling like that was not what I needed or desired. In fact there are no rules against having bread in the house. It happens to be a need of Sandy's, and she graciously provided a sampling of some of the gluten free things that she makes. That's all!

Sandy met us with fresh muffins, cookies and fruit. Being a prior teacher she is very personable

  • 4 of 5

The place is spacious and pleasantly decorated with wonderful stain glass windows all around.and a nice deck for watching the sun set with ocean views. There are desert garden trails to walk around with a nice flower notebook for reference. We were two families traveling together. The two girls slept up in a large loft. There is a nice master with the only bathroom off of it which made things interesting for our large group. There are plans to build another bathroom in the other bedroom which has a crib and twin bed. Sandy also had a queen twin air beds for our use. There is a shared grill and washer and dryer. The house is by a road and usually quiet except for morning traffic. Sandy is very responsive and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there and it was very reasonably priced!

Beautiful home in a breathtaking location

  • 5 of 5

The owner welcomed us in with a gift basket full of delicious local fruit, homemade seashorse-shaped chocolates(yum!), and many other goodies. She showed us everything inside home, and the home is so well equipped and so well organized, we lack for none whatsoever.The bed s comfy, the sheets are soft and clean, there's ample closet space and hangers, the bathroom is neat and plenty of towels on hane. The kitchen equipped with everything you might need, and everything is in new condition. The property is beautifully landscaped, with gorgeous flowers, trees and shrubs. The view from the living room and lanai are out of this world, and at night you can lay out on the lounger outside and get mesmerized by the magnificent star filled skies. The home is so well set up and so conveniently located, we've just had the best experience ever! Owner is wonderful and gave us many suggestions on where to go and sights to see, and she's always available on phone to answer any questions. We can't say enough good things about her or this rental and we're recommending it to everyone we know! :-)
