Thanks so much for an awsome experience. Your rental home is situated ideally - sunsets and snorkeling are wonderful off your deck. The highlight of our vacation was snorkeling with dolphins at the local beach...we will treasure this for the rest of our lives.
-Susan and Henry V. Lexington, MA
I can see no reason to leave here (aside from the other guests banging on the door to get in). We have been to Kona many times and stayed in many other locations - This has been the absolute best!
-Sharon and Andy San Francisco, CA
It has been an idyllic week at your lovely rental house....Your house is perfect for a family vacation, we feel as if we had just entered the house of a friend who had left us everything we needed - a gorgeous setting, great books and music, games and a well stocked kitchen.

Having never been to Hawaii, I have found paradise right here in this home on this island. The house is perfect with all anyone needs to survive in this garden.
-Tracey M. Oakland, CA
Once again, a wonderful time at your rental house - many thanks Ben! During our stay we occasionally left the lanai to go diving, bird watching and volcano watching. It got a little tiring having to look at all those humpbacks, spinner dolphins, manta rays, and colorful fish!

I'm so glad we found you on the internet. This house far exceeds our expectations. Our first visit to the Big Island was an incredible experience.

Humpback and calf cavorting in the bay and spinners will stay with me a long time. Mahalo!

Our 4th visit and awesome as always. We got in great snorkeling, several times right here. Saw more eels than ever, a turtle, and a feeding eagle ray + spectacular fishes. But mostly relaxing, eating avocados every day plus more fresh fruit than we ever get on the mainland. Life is good here, can't wait for another visit.
