Private Hawaiian Paradise Words Can’t Describe

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the most beautiful place we could have stayed at. If you love privacy, peaceful and tranquility this is your place! Gorgeous property with fresh coffee beans, eggs and fruit when you arrive. We had coffee and cooked breakfast in the open kitchen overlooking the ocean each morning. Our hosts were great! We spent 5 days here then 2 days at a resort. So glad we stayed longer here.

My family (2 adults, 2 teens) stayed here for the first 3 nights of our vacation. I wish we could have stayed here the entire time. This home was beautiful, fun, comfortable and clean--all while being set in a spectacular spot. Mike and Viktorya do a fabulous job of landscaping the hales even though they are located in such a perfect natural spot to begin with. Seriously, this property is beautiful.

It rained buckets while we were there - and we were still dry despite the outdoor kitchen and walkways between the hales. The sitting areas outside each bedroom hale was so comfortable and had amazing views of the valley and Pacific beyond. The outdoor kitchen was fabulous and perfectly stocked. You do have to clean off the counter each morning from gecko droppings - but that's part of the charm, so if you don't like being outdoors and one with beautiful, natural Hawaii this is not the rental for you. We did also meet Mike, who is so kind and rightfully proud of his beautiful property. We enjoyed walking around and seeing their coffee and cacao growing, eating their fresh eggs, and having my 12 year old make us fresh juice from your trees (total highlight!). Mike is full of local knowledge about places to go and experience--and lovely to share it with us.

My one and only complaint/issue: the coffee pot was too small to brew enough of their amazing coffee! We can't wait to come back. Thank you Mike and Viktorya!

Best place ever

  • 5 of 5

Could not have asked for a better place to stay. The total outside feeling is what we needed and crave this time of year. Hosts lovely. Everything a resort is not.

This property is a delight! I loved cooking and eating in the outside kitchen, perfect view of the water with my morning coffee. Each cottage has a very comfortable bed and a wonderful lanai! Another plus is the location. It is very convenient to Kona where we were able to do the Kealakekua snorkel and the Manta Ray night snorkel. Which was fantastic! Also very convenient to the Place of Refuge and Ho’kena beach, which also had great snorkeling. Very quiet location and the owner is very responsive. We were supplied with delicious coffee, fruit and eggs. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay!

No picture can do justice to this view!

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing place, built by the owner's own hands. Perched above the beautiful blue pacific you wake up to the birds and the view. We drank our tea on the lanai every morning and listened to the silence. The sleeping bungalow has everything you need and the kitchen bungalow is open air and so much fun to cook in. If I could manage it, I would never again have walls in my kitchen! This is a place of peace and privacy, both so rare in our busy, noisy world. We recommend it highly. Thank you Mike and Viktoria for building it and sharing it.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

While it was tricky to find initially, it was a great place. We even used the outside daybed for sleeping at night with no bugs. It was very pleasant to hear the ocean and see the stars. Beautiful sunsets! The open kitchen was great as well. It IS Hawaii, so one needs to be comfortable sharing space with geckos and insects, but they were not bothersome at all. Being so close to good snorkeling was also a plus... and we were lucky enough to have dolphins swim right next to us. Owners were great, too! We plan to return again!
