Wow! This property has it all. The view is breathtaking. Our family enjoyed every minute.

My family of 10 stayed at this property for 5 nights. It was the perfect place for us to reconnect and have fun! The house is everything you could want and more! It is absolutely gorgeous and CLEAN! I tried to find dust and couldn’t, lol 😆. The only negative thing I can say is that 3 of the bedrooms don’t have window coverings. There was no privacy for the people staying in them. Also, no way to block out the sunlight. Thankfully, my daughter brought blackout curtains that suction cup to the window so her toddler could sleep. But, we would absolutely stay here again. This house (and pool) is magical!

This is our second stay here (last one was in 2014), having fallen in love with the house and view the first time. The house remains beautiful and well-kept, the view is still extraordinary, and Victoria was excellent at communicating with us (she went out of her way a couple of times to make sure we were happy). We spent nearly the entire stay at the house enjoying the pool and the view and enjoyed every minute of it.

The stay was perfect and was exactly as described in the listing. We love the location, the house and the Big Island. It’s hard to imagine ever coming back without staying at this beautiful house. The hosts were also very responsive and helpful. I couldn’t recommend this house any more!

This property was one of a kind. The views, the layout, the pool, the trees and flowers. Everything was in order and complete for our family’s week long stay. The home helped us all relax and rekindle our relationships. We could home-base out for journeys to any part of the island. A few days we just stayed and played. Highly recommend the home. Noelani and staff were great help and responsive. Recommend loading up at Costco. The separate refrigerator and freezer will hold enough for 8 for a week. Two dishwashers! Words will not state the beauty and serenity of this place. Aloha

The house was better than the listing. We’ve rented many nice houses on VRBO, but this was the crème de la crème. Great condition, well furnished and supplied. I would rent again in a heartbeat!

Our group of 10 (ages 7-60) absolutely loved this house. You cannot beat the view, the sunrises, the pool, or all the extras the house had to offer. First, the kitchen, the double dishwashers were amazing for our big group. The kitchen had every pot, pan, utensil & appliance we needed. It was well stocked with condiments of every variety, oils for cooking and every spice & seasoning you’ll need. The coffee station was greatly setup as well with k-cups, and grounds. Then there was both the indoor & outdoor tables we could all enjoy the meal at. 10/10 The pool was incredible- the water slide, zero entry pool, water toys, hot tub, and all the places to sit around and enjoy watching people swim. 10/10 The outdoor accommodations were amazing- tons of lounging space, outdoor games, outdoor fans, soft lighting for evenings, it was literally perfect. 10/10 The beds were similar to what you’d get at a hotel- they aren’t your bed at home, but they work. The bedrooms were well stocked with towels, wash clothes, extra blankets and the flashlights on each night stand were a great touch. 8/10 The property is located in a lovely part of the island if you don’t want to be on top of other tourists or crowded- which is exactly what we were going for. It’s about an 1 hour drive to Kona or Hilo but everything on the island is a bit of a drive so this didn’t bother us. 10+/10 Overall the stay was everything we could’ve asked for. Enough space to have alone time, but plenty of amazing ways to be together at the house as well.

Totally exceeded our expectations! A totally amazing location. The house and amenities were exceptional. Once there we never wanted to leave.

We are a well traveled family and all agreed that this home was the nicest and best view we have ever had. Fully stocked kitchen, GORGEOUS views, mater suite that is amazing with and outdoor shower - all highlights for us. I don’t think words can express how much we enjoyed this home. We had many family dinners, played games and also did a fair amount of exploring. We did yoga cliff side, massage on the lower deck and truly soaked up the views. Thank you for an incredible week!!

I cannot say enough about this place. Unforgettable views, wonderful layout, tropical pool with a slide… this place has it ALL. It’s exactly the Hawaii experience you are looking for. I don’t think I could stay anyplace else on the Big Island now.

Upon arrival, Noelani had lit candles and left Hawaii music playing which felt like we were walking into a magical paradise. The stunning cliff view was visible from the door and wow, I have never seen anything so beautiful - even more gorgeous than the photos. Each bedroom also had wall-to-wall windows and stunning views - which felt like 4 master suites and the fifth room was an amazing surprise, too. The pool, hot-tub and slide were super fun as were the frogs that chirped at night. The big island is big...which was the only drawback as the remote location meant lots of driving to see everything, but perfectly suited for a relaxed getaway and we left knowing we will have to return to this amazing island.

The moment we passed through the entry gate, we found ourselves in a genuine Hawaiian paradise. From the natural beauty and stunning views to the well-stocked and maintained property, everything was ideal for our trip with our three adult children and their significant others. Taking in the views of Waipio Valley and the ocean, including the occasional whales swimming by, the beauty of the landscaping across the huge property, the pool and of course, the gourmet kitchen is where we spent most of our time. The bedrooms were all very comfortable and well appointed. The secluded outdoor shower in the main house was a surprisingly nice touch. A very unique and special property.

Unbelievably gorgeous property, even better than the pictures. Noelani was the best manager we could have asked for - super helpful and prompt!

Just an unbelievably wonderful property. From the layout to the well appointed kitchen and spectacular view, just amazing. Nothing even approaching a complaint. Property management team communicated well and was very responsive. Absolutely top notch experience and we hope to return.

The house is everything you could possibly ask for-- Luxurious, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. It's also in the most breathtaking location I've ever seen. There are few (if any) houses in the world that could rival this one. The property manager was very kind as well. Our inbound flight was cancelled, and she went over and above to help us problem solve our next steps in getting to the house. I couldn't ask for anything more in a vacation experience. I'll be dreaming of this place until I'm lucky enough to return again...

This home is exceptional! We enjoyed every moment so so much! The wild pigs and piglets that roamed the property, the ever changing skies & weather we watched roll through. My family and I made fresh sushi the first night & enjoyed the chefs kitchen, my daughters whom are 6 & 7 years old never left the pool and water slide area which is gated in. There are many very private bedroom spaces for everyone to not feel on top of each other & the location to Waipio valley is the closest you can get in a home like this one. Thank you for an amazing home rental, but also the experience we all will always remember!

Stunning views. Wake up every morning to the sun rise and see the open water and cliff views. Beautifully landscaped. Many hours spent in pool with water slide and hot tub. Superb inside/outside living with separate living spaces for kids. Appreciate the option of an outdoor shower. Tasteful and high end furniture, appliances and dining ware. Jessi was a delight and super helpful and responsive in every way. It's remote but once you are stocked up, you are set in paradise.

Absolutely loved the property. Magical place. We cant wait to stay there again next time. My newest favorite spot on earth!

My family had the BEST time at this magical place. From the moment we arrived we knew we had selected the right property. Plenty of space, kitchen was well stocked and the pool was the bonus. We had a private chef come a cook a meal for us and they absolutely LOVED the property. We have already discussed when we will be able to return. We did find it a bit warm in the house because some of the fans didn’t work at full capacity and without a/c we needed all the air we could get. Thankfully, it was much cooler at night making it overall not too big of a deal. We are still awaiting our returned deposit but hopefully that will take place soon. If you are looking to book a fantastic home do yourself a favor and book already.

The house and location are just as beautiful as presented, and the manager was very communicative and helpful and went out of her way to help us get the most out of our time there. Close to a cool little town but remote enough that you feel like you have the island to yourself when you’re in the yard. We watched dolphins leaping along the shore from the deck (high up but could still see them) and the walk to the beautiful beach and back up is not so bad if you’re reasonably fit!
