“Absolutely Amazing Hidden Gem in Paradise!”
Reviewed 9 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This home was so beautiful and inviting; the pictures don't do it justice! The room was so zen and spacious; with sliding glass windows overlooking the grounds and ocean. The bathroom was amazing- I took a bath in the soaking tub everyday overlooking the incredible views. You couldn't ask for a better host than David. I would definitely stay here again, and again.

The property is as beautiful as the pictures. I soaked in tub one evening and it was so relaxing. My wife enjoyed taking a bath under the large rain head. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed waking up to the beautiful sunrises over the ocean. David was a great host. We enjoyed his home and his company...having multiple conversations over wine and other libations. The breakfast was fresh fruit with coffee and/or tea. David sent us to his favorite snorkel and swimming spots. We also had a great dinner at a local restaurant that David suggested in his town of Pahoa. Mahalo and aloha.

“Lovely place”

I highly recommend David G's "Peace and Tranquility". The room was fantastic and the kitchen well-appointed. Super-comfy bed, and the bathroom was amazing.To quote my partner, "We're tearing out our gym room and putting in a bathroom like this". Outstanding views. The recommended restaurant "Kaleo's" was very good. It is a great quiet retreat for a couple. Must be comfortable with friendly, enthusiastic dogs (we were - but they might not be for everybody). The recommended restaurant "Kaleo's" was very good. A note of caution - the property is somewhat remote. The nearest town, Pahoa, doesn't have much to offer and is pretty run-down, but if you're there for volcanoes and relatively close snorkeling, its a GREAT place.

“Fantastic location and host!”
Reviewed 6 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

David's rental could not be a more perfect place to stay on the Big island. Secluded, but not too far from conveniences, the home is spacious and well appointed with panoramic views of both the jungle and the ocean. The property is located near great snorkeling opportunities, and David is knowledgeable and generous with information and directions for any other islands activities you might be interested in. We were very comfortable with both our private time and the interactions we had with our host.
