We loved this VRBO so much we are booking it again for next year. We are a group of 12 on a Sierra Club Scuba outing and needed a place to stay where we could prepare our meals at home and do dives and snorkeling daily. This VRBO was a perfect place. We stayed there from November 4-12 2017.
The location is close to good snorkeling beaches (8 minutes away), restaurants, shopping, and the airport. It has a 180-degree view of the Ocean, as it is on a hill near a main highway.
The house has 2 lanais, one huge one facing the Ocean (with a telescope) and one off the kitchen with a BBQ. The house has a king bedroom, 2 queen bedrooms, a small room with trundle and a bunkroom that slept 4 adult men (It has a TV). There is also a sofa bed and another sofa that is comfortable to sleep on. Everyone was happy with their sleeping arrangements. The King room is on the street side so there is street noise until about 10pm, then it quiets down. Except for the frogs (who we will miss...you just have to be here to understand) that are everywhere on the Island, nighttime was quiet.
The Kitchen is fully equipped for cooking for a crowd. There is a large fridge and large freezer, plenty of counter space, and a dining room table that will seat many.
The Wi-Fi is good.
The home is decorated beautifully. There are closets filled with towels, sheets, pillows, blankets, anything you need. The laundry room has a new fancy washer and dryer. We used the beach chairs and cooler everyday. It was so nice to not have to go out and buy that stuff.
We enjoyed the use of the van, which we could get all 12 of us in for a drive to the beach.
The driveway is very steep, so we parked the van at the bottom parking lot and parked our rental car up by the house.
We will miss the kitty that comes to greet us when we are home.
All in all it is a wonderful, livable, and practical house to stay in on Hawaii Island.
Pam, the owner was great at answering our texts and phone calls. She was quick to respond if we needed anything. She went out of her way to accommodate our requests and was very generous.
You will enjoy this home!
