"Its hard to capture in words the complete perfection of this little oasis. The location is ideal. Beaches, restaurants, grocery stores are all close proximity. The property is well maintained and was spotless upon arrival. A propane tank was empty at the fire pit but was replaced the next day when management was notified. My only complaint is about the neighbors. They are constructing so music blared, arguments ensued, a baby seemed disgruntled the whole time and even some dogs had problems over there. Luckily we were gone mostly during the day so we only heard it in the early evenings. This problem will resolve itself quickly though as construction can’t go on forever! Right?! I highly recommend this property. There is plenty of room for a family. The Kitchen is well equipped. Spices are even provided. No need for coffee filters either. (These are things I tend to pack.) Decent knives, a ninja blender and even a sandwich maker are included. I’m telling ya- this place is a gem. We’re early birds so we were able to nab great spots at nearby beaches (Magic Sands). The drive to Hapuna Beach is well worth it but go early for the best parking and prime place on the beach. Overall, this was a perfect place to stay. Everything about this house is simply wonderful. There is no hot water issue nor with the pressure of the water. We thoroughly enjoyed that huge tub and outdoor shower. I appreciate the Starbucks gift card for doing this review but I would have done it anyway. Kona coffee is what we enjoyed while there. So good! Looking for paradise? This is it!"..."

Contemporary Island Oasis w/ Private Pool
"My family and I stayed a week at this great house. Kealakekua Bay is one of the most beautiful places in the world. We kayaked and snorkeled almost daily with dolphins, sea turtles, and reef fish. Pros: 1) The view from the porch is as great as it looks in the photos. You're 5 feet from the water. 2) The owner knows what it is doing, is super responsive to texts, and has all the systems in place to handle renters. 3) The house is clean, has plenty of towels and sheets, and has all-new appliances. 4) The location is not busy, you'll feel like you're the only person on the island most of the time. Cons (nothing is perfect): 1) Like every airbnb/vrbo I've stayed at, the house interior is dated and needs to be remolded. But you aren't staying here to look at the bathroom. 2) This part of Hawaii is very rural. You are a 40 minute drive to a decent restaurant. Many of the nearby houses are in various states of disrepair, have rusted cars in the front yards, and piles of trash in the backyard. We had no problems with the area---the locals were great and inviting--but you shouldn't be expecting Malibu or Beverly Hills. I would certainly return to this exact house again."..."

"The house is well located (about 15 minutes from the beaches & 10 minute walk to groceries/coffee). It's also very well furnished and has an amazingly well stocked kitchen (every utensil you could possibly need). It's got a lovely view and is comfortable with AC & fans. This stay was perfect for our family, and we'd definitely consider coming back again."..."

Why rent a vacation home on the Big Island, Hawaii

The Island of Hawaii, also known as the Big Island, is the largest and youngest island of Hawaii, and in the U.S. The island’s total land area of 4,028 square miles is almost twice as large as all the other Hawaiian islands combined, and continues to grow. Formed by five volcanoes, the island is home to spectacular sites and eleven of the world’s thirteen climate zones climate zones. Due to the elevations and shielding effects of two volcanoes, you can experience snow-capped heights, tropical forests, deserts, and grasslands all in one day.

Many visitors head to the Big Island to escape the confines of Oahu and Maui. For those looking for space and privacy, renting a vacation home here is a great option. Here are some of the things you can look forward to during your stay in a Big Island rental:

  • Feel the heat of the Big Island’s volcanoes The Big Island is only getting bigger: home to the Hawaiian Islands’ only active volcanoes, lava flows regularly here, expanding the island’s size. The volcano Kilauea, on the south-eastern side of Hawaii, is one of the most active in the world, central Mauna Loa is the largest active volcano in the world, and dormant Mauna Kea to the north is the tallest mountain in the world when measured from its base on the seafloor. It’s easy to arrange a tour to any of these volcanoes and see the lava flowing for yourself.
  • Find your own private beach The beaches on the Big Island sprawl for miles, and with fewer tourists here than on the other islands it’s far easier to find a secluded stretch of sand. Plenty of vacation rentals here are built right on the beach, allowing guests to walk straight into the crystal-clear water. But what really sets the Big Island apart is its sheer variety of beaches. New Kaimu Black Sand Beach is a newly-forming beach at the site of the old Kaimu Beach, which was buried under 50 foot lava flows in the 1990s. Elsewhere on the island, Papakolea or ‘Green Sand Beach’ is one of the only green sand beaches in the world, where tiny green stones mix in with the yellow sand to give it an otherworldly hue. Hapuna Beach, meanwhile, is the Big Island’s largest and features a wide expanse of golden sand and brilliant blue water.
  • Take a hike The Big Island is one of the most incredible hiking destinations in the world. The Kilauea Iki hike will take you past amazing volcanic sights, from a crater rim to a cinder cone to plains of smoking crevices. The Muliwai Trail to Waimanu Valley trail is another great hike with incredible views of the Waipio Valley
