5/5 Excellent

Secluded getaway
We really enjoyed our stay here. It rains a lot here but with the beautiful & spacious lanai, we were able to barbecue n enjoy the outdoor just the same. The car port is a plus since we never get wet getting out of our car & into the house! Love the avocados & papayas in the yard. We made guacamole n papaya salads. The stars in the sky are so clear & beautiful at nights. There's fans everywhere to cool the house down. With a family of 4, this house is spacious enough for us to relax & enjoy after a long day of snorkeling. Volcano national park is 40 minutes away. We were very lucky to arrive the day before the lava activities started. Were able to hike at night to video tape the lava fountain. We love the farmers market at maku'u on Sundays. So much food & fruits to buy. It's only 10 minutes away from the place. Snorkel in Richardson park in Hilo about 40 minutes away. So much to see and do that even almost 3 weeks is not enough time.. will definitely stay here again when we come back. Don't forget to visit Boogie Woogie pizza in Pahoa about 8 minutes from house. Best pizza made from scratch we ever ate!!!

4/5 Good

Comfortable Pahoa stay
Spacious house, comfortable stay with easy access to local Hilo attractions including a trip to the volcano national park. Older property but well maintained in a rural location - awesome backyard with a lot of grown vegetation and very private lanai. Stocked with all the beach needs such as chairs, towels, snorkeling gear and a very functional kitchen with pots pans and utensils.

5/5 Excellent

Solid Place to Stay
This property is exactly as advertised. It is a little of the beaten path but sitting on the lanai is very relaxing. We made steaks on the grill and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

4/5 Good

Wonderful experience!
I rented the place for my daughter and her family , she had a lovely time. She can’t write the review because your system will only allow the purchaser to do the review. I was never there (quarantine) but she particularly enjoyed morning coffee on the lanai.

5/5 Excellent

Nice, Quiet & Perfect for our needs
This house was just right for our trip. It is centrally located, on a quiet street and has a beautiful garden. Getting there was the hard part due to the ever-changing state regulations in response to the pandemic. Robert, the owner, was wonderfully accommodating. He quickly responded to our questions and helped us through the craziness. We will be back again :^)
