    We really enjoyed our stay at this quaint and beautifully landscaped apartment. Suzie and Rick were super friendly, easy-going, and great to talk to. We really enjoyed all of the information they gave us about the island that made our vacation even better. The wonderful amenities and equipment they had for us to use was a big bonus too! We would definitely stay here again.

    My husband I were there for 9 days for our 5th anniversary. The saltwater pool was heavenly! Smooth skin and no smell of chlorine! We did a combination of cooking in our unit, on the amazingly clean bbq, and eating out. Breakfast on our patio was heavenly! The owners have gone out of their way to have all the amenities you could need, both in the unit and for fun around the pool or at the beach. They even had a notebook of recommended restaurants, beaches, and activities on the island in the unit. The unit was spacious and very clean. Would recommend this property in a heartbeat!

    Our stay with Suzie and Rick was, in a word, perfect. Not only are the hosts the warmest and most welcoming people around, their delightful property is the ideal home base for a vacation on the Big Island. Suzie and Rick provide everything you?ll need while adventuring around the many different locales of Kailua-Kona and beyond. The location of the property is easily accessible and very close to the highway (without being able to hear traffic noise), downtown shops and restaurants, grocery stores, and much more. Not only is the property central, it is beautiful and homey too! Relax in the clean and well kept pool while grilling up some dinner on the BBQ provided solely for your use. Or lounge on the lawn chairs while sipping fresh brewed coffee and listen to the morning music of the islands birds. I could go on and on but it boils down to this: if you?re coming to the Big Island for any reason whatsoever, book this property, you?ll be glad you did!

    I am an owner of another popular VRBO property, and have known the owners, Suzie and Rick, for a number of years. They recently refurbished their ohana. When I got to see what they did, I was blown away. The unit is so beautiful. Suzie and Rick took care to make certain their guests would be comfortable and have everything they need. The rooms are very pleasing to the eye and are spotlessly clean. The surroundings are well done and the pool makes it so much more relaxing.
    The location makes it easy to get into town. With Suzie and Rick as owners, travelers will get excellent customer service.
