What a tropical paradise with palms trees and plants in this huge gardens estate. You know you are there once you pull in the entry with a breathtaking view of spectacular gardens and birds signing. Loved our choice... We enjoyed 4 evenings and all our needs provided including snorkel gear and beach stuff. Our hosts were so helpful in details of all there is to see and had typed daytrips for us. Would highly recommend to all. Close to head to Kona for an evening and great restaurants so close you can walk.. Thank you Steve and Janice for making our honeymoon so very special and we hope to return again in the coming years.

We spent 5 wonderful days at this beautiful and peaceful home. Janice was a friendly and very informative hostess (her husband Steve was away during our stay). Her breakfasts were truly a delight, featuring fresh island fruits, homemade breads and muffins, homemade jellies and syrups, the setting is beautiful and the atmosphere is very friendly. Close to Kailua, but away from the bustle. Highly recommended!
