Testimonials from families that have stayed in the house
Heaven in Hawaii
My wife and I (Judd and Faye) spent a week and enjoyed every moment. The house is beautiful, clean, well decorated just a few steps from the lovely Kealakua Bay beach, a short drive to shopping, the airport, town, and lots of interesting touring. There is so much to recommend about the house and nothing negative. We ate every meal on the deck enjoying the warm breeze and a beautiful view of the beach. We have fond memories, plan to return and have recommended the house to several friends.
P.S. it is fun to watch the Geckos that are plentiful.

Just about perfect getaway
We stayed 8 days and had a wonderful time. The house easily accommodated our party of 15 and worked great for all ages (1-year-old baby to 69 year-old grandpa). We found the entire house very clean when we arrived and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen has a good stove, refrigerator and dishwasher and is arranged so it is easy to work in.
The center island is large and makes a good place for serving. There are lots and lots of pot and pans, bowls, utensils, plates, etc. When we were there there were several boxes of snorkeling equipment, kids beach toys and a couple of kayaks all of which we made use of. The big lanai off the living room/kitchen is especially inviting and we spent a lot of time there relaxing, talking, eating and playing games.
The yard is large and lovely with lots of beautiful flowers and coconut and papaya trees. The house feels secluded even though there are several houses nearby. All the foliage blocks the other houses. It is close to the ocean and there are areas within a couple of minutes easy walk that are safe and interesting for babies, children and adults. We saw spinner dolphins in the morning, snorkeled and kayaked later in the day. The tide pools at Manini Beach are fascinating. We found the owner and manager both to be easy to work with and quick to respond to emails. We would recommend it and would love to go back ourselves.

Aloha Anna Thank you so much for opening you lovely home for another perfect vacation for our family, I appreciate the care and attention to detail which helps made our stay so wonderful. Our extended family group was larger than last year and everyone felt that your home was a perfect, and grateful for walk to Kealakekua bay for my parents. We all love being able walk to the bay in the morning for an early snorkel and come back to the house without getting into a car. It is so cold at home now, so the warmth and beauty of the house and bay will continue to warm us. We love the bamboo floors on the 3rd floor, beautiful. My parents used the elevator daily, what a great invention. Looking forward to our return in July.
