Serene but with adventure close by
Our family of four (two young adult sons, my husband and me) had a very special holiday here. We love being outside and doing active things, but we also like some occasional "nesting" on vacation. This condo was an easy place to be - great kitchen and a sweet little lanai where we enjoyed many lazy breakfasts and great conversation. The pool was a quick walk away - a perfect place to enjoy the water and plan the next day's adventure. Snorkeling at the nearby beach club delightful. The condo was so thoughtfully stocked - beach towels and paraphernalia ready to go in the garage, and everything we needed to pull together some great meals and work on making the perfect mai tai. All was peaceful; never heard a neighbor or traffic, yet we were five minutes from a great store. With Gail's recommendations for restaurants, groceries, etc., we were set! Weather during our December stay was about the warmest and driest (we know; we drove all over the island!). Highly recommended for whatever type of vacation you are dreaming of. We hope to return.Carolyn H.

Best accomodations on the Big Island!
The best VRBO experience we have ever encountered. I have stayed in dozens of VRBO accommodations and this was simply the best. My husband, 3 kids (12, 15 & 17) and I were greeted with a clean, well organized and well appointed condominium. This property should be a model for the way rental properties are offered. I felt like I was staying in a top tier hotel. Missing from the property were the typical personal items that many of the VRBO landlords leave behind that clutter their rental units. I would recommend this property to anyone and everyone. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.logan b.
