“Absolutely Lovely Stay”
Reviewed 5 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

person found this review helpful

After travelling many hours and encountering several mishaps getting to the island, arriving at the house and experiencing the amazing view immediately soothed our frayed nerves. We arrived a little earlier than the scheduled check-in time but the house/grounds keeper was extremely friendly and accommodating. Alfreda called us within minutes of our check in time to ensure we had gotten in the house alright and that everything was satisfactory and encouraged us to contact her if we had any questions or concerns.

We spent Christmas week in the house with our adult daughters. The house is very well equipped with almost every plate, pan or gadget you might need to cook just about anything - including a garlic press! The board games, books and puzzles were a nice surprise and we enjoyed using them.

We drank our morning coffee on the patio watching the gorgeous sunrises. We drank our evening cocktail on the patio watching the waves roll in and crash against the shore. Every day we walked the coastline, it goes on for miles in both directions and we were lucky enough to watch sea turtles a couple of times.

This is a perfect place to relax and get away from the touristy parts of the island. We are not much for crowds so this was an ideal spot for us. Getting to grocery stores was an easy 15 -20 minute drive and there were several restaurants within that same distance. We particularly enjoyed Boogie Woogie Pizza and Kolea's Bar and Grill in Keaau.

The good: Nice house, very clean, well stocked
The great: The view, the quiet location
The not great: Can't think of a thing!

Thank you to Alfreda and Norm. We had a great stay.

Aloha and much Mahalo for your wonderful review. I got the new games for the children for Christmas. You made some beautiful memories at hale o' kealoha. The whales are in the bay the end of Dec, Jan, Feb,and the first part of March. I am surprised there were no sighting. I would love to have you back.

“Great Ocean Home with Pool”
Reviewed 14 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We really loved our stay here. Overlooking the ocean, we experienced some amazing sunsets. You can't swim in the ocean here but they have a pool that more than makes up for it.

There is not much around here for shopping but Hilo is only 10 miles away.

This is a large home that could accommodate a large family. I highly recommend this place.

“Beautiful views just outside you bedroom window”
Reviewed 10 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Great family friendly condo. Blocks away from Shipman beach trailhead. Close to the volcano and the current trailhead to the ocean entry of the current eruption. Really can see the glow from the heart of the Pu' u O'o eruption from the back lani. The place is right on the shoreline where the sound of the ocean rocks you to sleep at night and the sunrise wakes you up. The back bedrooms get hot during the day but if you open the right windows and use the fans the sea breeze cools them off nicely. Kapoho tidepools, Ahnalanui hot pool, and the Shipman Beach trailhead are all minutes away. A perfect place to explore Puna, one of the most beautiful areas of the island, as well as being a jump off for Volcano or Hilo. Great to cool off in the pool at night after exploring all day. Looking forward to returning in the whale season as we saw pods of spinner dolphins here during the summer. I would think whale watching in the winter/spring would be excellent. Thanks for the memories!

“Unbelievable View!”
Reviewed 11 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

people found this review helpful

The best thing about this house is the beautiful view! It sits on top of a lava cliff and the waves are crashing all around you. It's everything you picture Hawaii to be! We would sit in our patio chairs soaking in the beauty for hours and the spectaculars sunrises were worth getting out of bed to enjoy. We were also treated to several whale sightings as a bonus.

The house itself is much larger than anticipated, with a large open area for the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Large patio doors and windows bring the view in so you can enjoy it from the inside too. We used only 3 of the 5 bedrooms but did notice that the other 2 had cement floors rather than tile, but I would guess the owner is in the process of updating these rooms.

We also loved the pool area which is nice and private. It's not heated, but it felt great after you got in. The deck is elevated so you have ocean views from there as well. We found an umbrella in the garage so the shade lovers could enjoy it too.

My mom said that she was forever spoiled by his house as it was by far her favorite vacation rental. Mahalo Alfreda for sharing it with us as I'm sure we'll be back!

“Fantastic location and views”
Reviewed 21 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were so pleased with this accommodation, from the location to the size of the house and it just fitted our family of 5 to a tee. Owners are very helpful and always responded to any questions we had over our stay. Pool was awesome on those warm evenings and to say the views were incredible is to understate the facts. Set on top of all the old larva flows, the ocean was 20 metres from your back door. Getting there was even fun on this amazing roller coaster road you travel on to get there.
Would have no hesitating in booking this house again.
