This house and the location were truly paradise. Everything in the house is so thoughtful and comfortable. You can tell Sharon has thought of everything and really wants her guests to feel at home. The kitchen was well stocked. We cooked many big meals including Christmas dinner. There are plenty of towels and beach towels and even sand toys and boogie boards. The beds and bedding were comfortable and the rooms and bathrooms are very nice and spacious. We loved coming home after a day of exploring and sitting around the wood fireplace. The beauty of the house and the grounds really blew us away. You have to experience it for yourself. I would recommend this home to anyone and would stay here again in a heartbeat. We have stayed at many wonderful rental homes all around the world and this was our very favorite! I don’t say that lightly. Thank you Sharon for sharing your home with us and making our Christmas holiday magical.
If you are wanting to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Big Island without having to be around a lot of people all the time, then this is the house for you! This house was truly the sanctuary the 6 of us adults needed for our trip to Hawaii!! We enjoyed spending the cooler nights out on the lanai, listening to the sounds of the frogs (once we figured out thats what was making the eerie chirping) and the rain.
Some advice for future guests: go to the house BEFORE stopping at a grocery store! The house was already stocked with spices, condiments, coffee, toiletries, etc.. Sharon truly treats her guests like they are family! Ask her for advice on the different activities to do on the island. There are so many different companies. She can tell you who are the best to use.
We have used VRBO for other vacations. This was truly the best place we have stayed in thus far because of Sharon and the craftsmanship of the house! We would definitely stay here again! Mahalo Sharon and Rob!
This was the nicest VRBO property at which I have ever stayed. The rooms were large, clean, and the entire home was built with high end construction. With that said, what said it apart was how nicely it was decorated as someone has a very keen eye for detail. Needless to say, the next time my wife and I are on the Big Island this is where I plan to stay!
Stayed just two nights while we visited the volcano . The house was spectacular and we spent one full day relaxing on the large porch overlooking the beautifully landscaped yard ( and feeding the two resident pheasants). Would highly recommend.
